Ages ago (January), I started a case study on caffeine and hair growth. The original intention was to take and show bimonthly pictures with myself as well as the participating testers.
Sorry for the delay, but if you have been waiting for this update, I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed. The results so far have surprised even me.
What Started ThisI started this study when I noticed hair growing where I'd never seen it before. Not just out of the blue, mind you. The new hair growth was discovered in connection with my testing a hair-boosting product I developed for a friend.
Here's my 'before' picture, taken in January after I had been using the product for a month. The red ring is highlighting the area with new growth.
The Now PictureIn this second picture – taken at the beginning of October – I have been using Stuart's Formula every day as well as doing a 30-second daily head massage (link below).
At an age where most people start thinning considerably, my hair is acting like it has been 'pumping iron'. I can only attribute this to Stuart's Formula combined with the scalp boosting massage (link below).
What My Husband SaidWhen my husband saw these 2 pictures, his reaction was immediate and brutally honest: 'This looks faked. It looks like you've arranged your hair differently to make it look thicker. The lighting is different and you're holding your hair differently in the second picture."
Fair enough. Trying to recreate angle, lighting etc has proved to be a ridiculously difficult thing for me to do when photo-documenting case studies.
I asked my husband to examine my scalp and compare it to the before picture.
He did, then said: "OK, it's pretty obvious that your hair is fuller in the new growth area - your whole hairline actually looks like it's moving forward as compared to the before picture."
This is indeed looking like a success story for my hair and scalp. I intend to continue using Stuart's Formula and seeing how far it continues to encourage hair growth on my scalp.
The Next TesterNext time, we are going to take a look at how 'Mr. Bee' has been getting on with his use of this product. I promise it won't be as long as last time.
