What's the difference between the Oil and the Serum?
HAIRMETTO Topical Oil has been our flag-ship product since 2014 with many long time users protecting their healthy hair and keeping away DHT. This product is entirely an oil, and as such, the consistency is oily - go figure, eh? (Yes, we're Canadian)
The oils provide deep penetration into the roots overnight, while you sleep.
Saw Palmetto and Pumpkin seed provide a synergistic combo that:
1) prevent DHT from holding on and weakening the follicle,
2) prevent the enzyme (5-alpha reductase) from converting testosterone into harmful DHT in the first place!
This is all going on at the follicle level...which is why months can go by before you may even notice thinning hair.
By morning, most of the oil has been absorbed, but will still likely need to be washed out with a gentle shampoo to start your new day. Some don't like to wash their hair every day, or would prefer not to have an oil.
So, we developed a Serum...its water-based for a gel-like consistency, suitable for styling (yes, even has a slight 'hold' to it). It doesn't need to be washed out; it will dry to your style.
Still packed with a powerful dose of Saw Palmetto extract, and mixed with Stinging Nettle and Japanese Peppermint.
This combination also helps prevent DHT from holding onto the roots. Stinging Nettle soothes the scalp, calming any inflammation that may be the root cause, and Japanese Peppermint, the highest Menthol content of any peppermint essential oil, stimulates circulation to the scalp in order to help those follicles grow healthy hair and keep the ones that are healthy!
(Even those who do not suffer from androgenetic alopecia will appreciate the soothing, anti-inflammatory properties of this serum if they suffer from seborrheic dermatitis, eczema, dandruff, excessive sebum production, scalp psoriasis or a host of other scalp conditions caused by inflammation.)
They are designed to complement one another. They are both left on for many hours, allowing the roots full saturation. The Serum is good for those who want to leave it in all day while they work and play without any oily feeling. The Oil will suit those who prefer to sleep with it in.
Either way, each product will enable a continual defense of DHT buildup, anti-inflammatory soothing scalp protection, enhanced blood circulation to the follicles, and nutrient antioxidant support to stimulate new growth – all without drug related side effects.
