An Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo that Works

I chanced by Forest Magic hair saver products during one of my health store trips early this year. They caught my attention because they are made of gugo bark extract, which my mom used to keep her waist-long hair shiny back in her younger years.

Gugo: A Herbal Wonder

Entada Phaseoloides or simply, gugo, is a large woody vine that is commonly found in lowland coastal forests in Africa, Australia, Asia, and the Western Pacific (Source: NTBG). I was surprised to find out about its medicinal uses other than treating dandruff and hair loss. But for this post, let us just focus on this. According to Forest Magic's product labels, gugo barks contain saponin, which stimulates hair growth, helps control psoriasis and dandruff, prevents premature baldness, controls lice, and strengthens hair roots in order to make our scalp healthy and hair, shiny.

From a Credible Manufacturer

Upon inspecting the label, I saw that Forest Magic is a brand under CRD Herbal Products, Inc. CRD stands for Dr. Carlita Rex-Doran, a Filipino inventor who was awarded by the Department of Science and Technology in 1990 for Best in the Use of Indigenous Materials. (Read more about Dr. Rex-Doran here.)

Having read (and verified) this information -- thanks to the free WiFi at Echostore, I purchased both the shampoo and the liquid lotion as gifts for someone who had a really bad case of hair fall. I also bought the shampoo at a much later date and made a little experiment recently.

Simple and Easy to Use

Forest Magic Herbal Hair Saver Shampoo is used just like any shampoo. After applying a small amount on wet hair, it has to be gently massaged in three to five minutes then rinsed thoroughly.

While it is advised that the Forest Magic Herbal Hair Saver Lotion be used in the morning and the evening, some users may consider using it at night only due to its natural gugo bark scent, which I assume might not appeal to everyone. After bathing, apply a few drops of the lotion and massage on scalp for five to 15 minutes prior to rinsing. It can also be left on overnight.

The Results

One visible result of using both products was the significantly less amount of hair that was collected in the drain after a few weeks. (Sorry, I do not have a picture.)

On the other hand, I did not observe any remarkable difference on my psoriasis but I did document some obvious benefits of Forest Magic shampoo in terms of hair fall reduction: Using the same comb and conditioner but different shampoos, it can be noticed that I lost more while combing after a bath.

Taken a day apart...
I won't share what the "Other Brand" is; the anti-hair fall shampoo is definitely Forest Magic.
Actually, the first picture (above) was a re-take since I thought that the comb that I originally used for the mini experiment was fine-toothed. Nonetheless, I am sharing how it looked like:

I thought that I could have possibly lost more hair here because the comb's teeth were finer than the other one.

Forest Magic products are available at Echostore (with branches at Serendra, ETON Centris and Podium) and in some online sellers at sulit.com.ph.

  5. I was suffering from hair fall for quite sometime and i cant seem to find a brand that is suited to answer my hair problem. A neighbor of mine gave me a brochure of a well-known direct selling business and this product caught my attention. I ordered a pair of shampoo and conditioner. I tried the product and it works. Fall off hair started to lessen and my hair gets stronger. Not brittle anmore. My daughter tried this also and her dundruff's gone in just one wash. I was even surprised when my son asked me if he could share the use of this gugo shampoo. I know him as a very skeptical person when it comes to herbal products. But this time, he found the scent of gugo shampoo and conditioner so aoothing. Im very satisfied with the quality and also with the price. Its not that expensive compared to my previous hair salon brand of shampoo and conditioner. I highly recommend this product to rhose people suffering from hair loss and dandriff, especially if your hair is chemucally treated with hair color and rebonding agents.

  11. Hello... these past few weeks i noticed na ang daming hair na nalalagas sa kin.. i gave birth 4 months ago and it may has something to do with that (based on my google research). Ive always had hairfall, but yung normal na dami lang ng hairfall but during my pregnancy, strong yung hair ko..as in hindi sya nanlalagas, then eto nga recently grabe ang hairfall ko, parang natatakot na nga ako makalbo..so i tried this GUGO shampoo and lotion and ive been using this for more than a week pa lang.. as of now di ko pa masabi kung effective sya pero i hope it will get better as i use this product. Im planning to continue using it. Yung smell nya, ok lng nmn.. medyo malagkit lang sya sa hair, so medyo mahirap suklayin (specially pag napadami ang lagay ko ng lotion) pero ok lng, i use big comb nmn para di maxado mapwersa yung hair ko. So far so good naman. ill just continue using it. Or kung meron pa kayong ibang alam na maganda at effective na product para sa hair thinning / hair fall / hair loss paki-inform nmn po ako.. thank you.
