“I had been using GrowOut Shampoo (& Strengthener) and the (GrowOut Scalp Energizing) nutrient spray after having had chemo therapy 2 years ago.  I have since needed chemo again and now my hair is growing back.  I still have GrowOut Shampoo (& Strengthener) and just received my (GrowOut Scalp Energizing) nutrient spray today.  Now I am reading on your website that Illustrious shampoo has an apple ingredient that promotes growth.  Which would be better for me to use?  GrowOut or Illustrious?  And, why is there now a GrowOut Shampoo  & Strengthener for men?  Any difference in formulation?”                             ~ S.H., Madison, WI

Great to hear from you, and it’s so nice to hear you are doing well!

Well, each shampoo provides nutrition for growth, and many of our customers like to switch them around for  a bit of a change.  The best thing to do is to use the GrowOut Shampoo & Strengthener once a week, supposing you shampoo daily, or about every 5-7 shampoos.  This gives the extra cleansing and a “soaking in the nutrition moment.”  Then on a regular basis, get the full spectrum of nutrition from the IlLustrious Shampoo  & Cleanser.  By using the GrowOut Scalp Energizing Spray daily, though, you will be getting the magic of the GrowOut AND the magic of the IlLustrious!

Regarding GrowOut Shampoo  & Strengthener for menit is currently exactly the same formulation.  Due to our original packaging, though, many men felt like it really belonged to women.  So, we really only have changed the write-up to “speak” men’s language and to their concerns, and are looking at repackaging it for a more POWERFUL look!  So, let the men in your life know they can get GrowOut shampoo for men!  Oh, and  GrowOut Scalp Energizing Spray, too! 

Great questions!  Thank you so much, and keep up the good hair growth!
