      I tried another brand of thinning shampoo and instead of helping my thinning hair, it made it fall out more. As soon as I started using this product I stopped losing my hair. It does have a medicine type of smell but once you style your hair the smell goes away.

        After 3 weeks I noticed less hair falling out. I've been using it for 4 months now and will continue. Can be a bit drying bit I use a deep conditioner 2 to 3 times a week to keep hair soft. Would recommend for anyone that has started seeing greater hair loss over the years.

                    • Q:

                      How often can I wash my hair with BOS Defense? I have straight hair that is thinning in back of the crown and my scalp can be seen. I have been using your Bosley Revive shampoo and conditioner and I like them very much but it is almost gone and I need to order your product, so I was reviewing the comments of users and I am confused as to what is the correct shampoo I should be using, the REVIVE or the DEFENSE. I like the idea that the DEFENSE will make my hair look fuller.

                        Hi Mary,

                        You should shampoo as often as needed. If you shampoo daily or every other day. Just continue your normal routine. We recommend the Bos Defense system if you are in the beginning stages of hairloss and have minimal thinning. The Bos Revive is for clients who have more advanced stages of hairloss. That would simply denote larger areas of thinning and you have experienced the loss for a longer period of time. Both formulas will help give you thicker and fuller looking hair.

                        Yes, you can use this shampoo; however, it will not treat or cure the seborrheic dermatitis. Bosley BosDefense Nourishing Shampoo For Color-Treated Hair will thoroughly and gently cleanse the scalp and create volume and shine in the hair.

                      What is the difference between the BosDefense and BosRevive Shampoos?

                        A:

                        BosDefense products are formulated for those who want to take a more "defensive" action against thinning. BosDefense is ideal for those with thin, fragile hair that is thinning but with no dramatic hair loss, those seeking preventative products against hair loss, and those seeking thicker, fuller-looking hair.

                        BosRevive products are formulated for those with visibly thinning hair and excessive hair loss. BosRevive is ideal for those with visibly thin hair and those experiencing rapid hair loss with more visible scalp than hair. If you have areas of scalp where hair no longer grows, choose BosRevive.
