How I Conquered Hair Loss: Pilexil

For a long time I was scared that I was going bald.

It began in Korea when I noticed that my hair was falling in clumps in the shower and my scalp was itchy as hell. I went to a dermatologist in Korea and he gave me an anti-fungal lotion to apply to my scalp 2x a day. It helped if I used it, but because the lotion had steroids, I could not use it for a long time and it gave me pimples.

I also tried all the anti-fungal shampoos available in Korea. I even bought pricey shampoos such as Kerastase's white Specifique anti-hairfall line and Kiehl's Argan Smoothing Shampoo. Believe me when say that I tried every dandruff and anti-hairfall shampoo imaginable in K.

Most times, the anti-dandruff shampoos I tried worked only for a few weeks, and then my hair became immune to them and the hair fall and itchiness resumed.

When I went to Spain, I armed myself with sachets of Nizoral, but of course a couple of months later, all my stocks were gone and the hair fall and itchiness came back.

But then I discovered Pilexil.

Pilexil is an anti-hairfall treatment range made by the Spanish pharmaceutical company, Lacer. It is a pharmacy grade shampoo specifically made to help with hair fall. I googled it first before buying and saw some great reviews in Amazon US.

Pilexil has a complete line of hairloss treatment products: Shampoo, spray, ampoules and even oral supplements.

I, however, only use the hair shampoo. Though the last time I bought my Pilexil shampoo ( my second bottle!), I received some hair ampoules for free!

What it's made of: Serenoa Serrulata (Saw Palmetto), Zinc, Vitamins, and Conditioners.
Pilexil is formulated to maintain the hair pH at 5.5.

My current stash of Shampoos: a still unfinished Kiehl's Shampoo, a recently emptied Pilexil 300 ml Shampoo, and my newly bought Pilexil 500 ml Shampoo.

I'm into my second bottle of Pilexil. I realized how I have depended on Pilexil when I went on a long trip ( 5 days) recently and used the complementary shampoos in the hotel. I came back to Madrid with burning, itchy scalp, dandruff and more falling hair.

I have also noticed that my hair has become finer and more manageable after using Pilexil. Note that I have my normally curly hair rebonded every time I go home to the Philippines, and usually, after three months, the roots start to curl and my hair begins the transformation into one frizzy mess.

It's been six months since I've had my hair treated and thanks to Pilexil, it still manageable with very minimal hair fall! I use Pilexil everyday because I noticed that if I skip a day, my dandruff flares up and I get itchy scalp.
