July 2011: "In 1987 with the birth of my last son and a hysterectomy 10 months later (I was only 29 years old), I began to lose my hair. It happened slowly and I was busy with three boys but I noticed more and more hair was falling out; in the shower, on my pillow and when I brushed. There was nothing I could do. Hesitantly, I cut my hair short, bought a wig, and this was how I lived my life for 20 years. Then, in 2011, my sister told me about Hinoki Hair Growth Products, and I started using it immediately. Right away I stopped losing my hair. Within 3 months, I started growing new baby hairs. By the end of 9 months, I'd grown 80% of my hair back. My husband was even more excited about it than I was! Thank you Hinoki for changing my life!"
May 2017: "Yes, I still use the Hinoki products and my hair is fantastic. It's sooo full and wavy. All of my friends and my stylist are always commenting on how much thicker and fuller my hair is"

"Thank God in Heaven. I had previously had two major surgeries in the last year, which had caused my hair to fall out in spots. I used Hinoki shampoo with the conditioner and scalp revitalizer daily. I started seeing the results in as little as 2 weeks. Now I have hair that is very noticeable growing back in. Yes, it's been only 6 months so the new hair is short, but is coming back and growing and filling in. I love this shampoo and conditioner. Nothing but great things to say about it. I would highly recommend this product and I have recommended it to friends who are also using it today. I have been a hair stylist for 24 years and have never used anything like this before ever."
"I have been in the beauty industry for over 30 years. I have had the opportunity to try hundreds of products. When I found Hinoki products I felt like I hit the jackpot! I have been using Hinoki products for 5 years now. During that time, I have been able to experience hair growth, less itching on my scalp, and stronger and healthier hair follicles. I have been sharing these products with professionals and clients alike who have had fantastic results. I also am a distributor of beauty supplies and our Hinoki line is one that people request much more than other products. They are a must in my hair care routine. Before I found Hinoki, I had been to a plastic surgeon to talk about hair transplants. I was informed I ha female pattern baldness. The doctor wanted to put me on strong medication and men's strength rogaine. I really didn't want to use medications or strong chemicals. That's when I started looking for other products and found Hinoki. I have been unbelievable satisfied with this line. I t has controlled how much hair fell out and helpend my hair grow faster and stronger so I did not need a transplant. As a professional, I recommend Hinoki to all of my hair lass and fine hair clients as well as clients with seborrhea, psoriasis, dandruff or dry itchy scalp. Hinoki helps with new hair growth while keeping my scalp and hair in optimum condition. Not only has it helped me but my family too! I couldn't recommend anything more than Hinoki products!"

FEMALE ANDROGENETIC ALOPECIA (FAA). FAA is the most common reason for thinning hair in women. It usually thins the overall head of hair. FAA is directly related to significant hormonal changes in a woman. Changes in birth control, pregnancy, child birth, and menopause are the most common factors.
FEMALE TELOGEN EFFLUVIUM (FTE) : is usually ignited by a shock to the body’s hormone system. High stress, crash diets, changes in medications, vitamin/mineral and other nutritional deficiencies create hormone imbalances. FTE is characterized by large amounts of shedding hair and patches of hair loss.
ALOPECIA AREATA : is still a science in development. Thinning hair is believed to be tied to the body’s auto-immune system. The bodies immune system falsely perceives the hair follicle as a foreign object and begins to purge it from the scalp. Thyroid conditions and other illnesses are believed to be the cause
Any of the above changes in women can cause a drop in estrogen levels which allows the conversion of testosterone into DHT (dihydrotestosterone). This in turn causes a build-up of excess sebum in the scalp.
A build-up of DHT (which is a by-product of testosterone) in the scalp, is also the most common reason for hair loss in men.
The good news is that HINOKI SHAMPOO strips away the follicle clogging sebum that's caused by DHT, which can completely stop hair loss and start new hair growth.
It's possible to Re-grow Hair only if your hair follicles are still alive. Please read below...
There is no drug or natural product that can bring dead hair follicles back to life. But, many people with hair loss have follicles that are still alive and in the dormant stage.
Be Gentle with Your Scalp!
Massaging the scalp lightly with Hinoki Shampoo is key for achieving the best results. While washing your hair, always do this for at least 15-20 seconds. Massaging "vigorously" is a not a good idea for most people. It can do more harm than good, especially for people with naturally oily scalps. Vigorous massaging of the scalp can actually increase the sebum production (and build-up) which is what causes most of the problems associated with thinning hair. For some people, the biggest problem with massaging the scalp vigorously, with ANY shampoo, is the obvious one: a dry and itchy scalp.
This Shampoo is Not for Moisturizing
The purpose of Hinoki Shampoo is to help with the problem of thinning hair. It was not designed as a "moisturizing shampoo". However, if you have dry, damaged hair you can treat those problems at the same time you’re treating your thinning hair problem. One way to help add moisture is to also use Hinoki Conditioner and Hinoki Thickener Leave in Conditioner. However, for very dry and damaged hair, we recommend using Hinoki in conjunction with a dedicated moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, rotating the product lines (on different days) as follows
Our research shows that this rotation of products works better than using combination products on the same days. Once your thinning hair problem has improved, you can use Hinoki for just two days per week as a maintenance program, if you want to focus on other hair problems.
Don’t Put Heavy Burdens on Your Hair!
One of the main problems for people with thinning hair is finding a way to add more moisture to the hair without weighing it down, which can make already thin, weak hair break off. Hair breakage is just as big of a problem for women as hair falling out at the scalp. So, when your hair is dry and in need of extra moisture, use Hinoki Conditioner because of its extra lightweight formula that won’t put damaging stress on your hair. Even though this product is mainly for the hair, it contains Hinoki oil and other supporting ingredients for scalp therapy, just like Hinoki Shampoo.
After shampooing, put a quarter size to half dollar size amount (depending on hair length) in your hand, and massage it through the hair and scalp for at least 15-20 seconds. Rinse Hinoki Conditioner out of your hair, as the LAST thing you do before getting out of the shower. This extra time will allow Hinoki Conditioner to give your hair more strength, volume, moisture, and shine.
Let's Get Right to the Point!
The purpose of Hinoki Plus is simple: to drive Hinoki Oil deep into the scalp, as quickly and directly as possible. This is accomplished because the foundation of the formula is SD-Alcohol 40-B. This removes most obstacles from the scalp pores that could potentially block out Hinoki Oil. This alcohol is a mild form of alcohol and is widely used in cosmetics, skin care products, and hair products.
Caution: SD-Alcohol 40-B is commonly used in consumer products. While most people don’t have any problems using this type of alcohol, some people might experience a dry or irritated scalp when using it.
Note: SD-Alcohol 40-B is NOT in any of these other Hinoki products: Hinoki Shampoo, Hinoki Conditioner, or Hinoki Hair Thickener.
Hinoki Plus is the only Hinoki product that we recommend testing lightly first to make sure that it doesn’t irritate your scalp. For the first week, use every other day. If you experience any scalp discomfort or irritation from using Hinoki Plus every other day, STOP USING IT IMMEDIATELY. If you don’t experience any scalp discomfort or irritation, then increase to everyday use. If you experience scalp discomfort or irritation from using every day, then reduce back to every other day use.
You may use Hinoki Plus when your hair is either damp or dry. When spraying, hold the pump just a few inches away from scalp, and aim for the scalp only. You should spray on the most thinning areas of your scalp, but it’s best to cover the whole scalp to prevent other areas from thinning. The spray may inadvertently land on any hair that’s close to your scalp, but the goal is to cover the scalp. It is not a hair conditioner, and there is no benefit in soaking the hair with it. It is exclusively a scalp therapy product. It can be applied at any time of the day or at night. The key is to leave it on your scalp for at least 2 hours before washing it out. You may leave it on all day and night if desired. After applying, massage the scalp lightly (not vigorously) for 15-20 seconds. Wash off of hands after applying.
Did You Actually Just Say That?
Imagine a hair product manufacturer saying, "not everyone needs this product", about one of their products! That's exactly what we're saying about Hinoki Hair Thickener. For people with naturally oily to very oily hair, all you need is Hinoki Shampoo, Hinoki Conditioner, and Hinoki Plus. But for people with naturally dry to very dry hair, and those with brittle or weak hair that breaks off easily, Hinoki Hair Thickener - Leave-in Conditioner, will be the best product you've ever used! It will keep the extra moisture you need on your hair and scalp, while strengthening, volumizing, and treating your scalp all day long. Hair Thickener does all of this with a lightweight formula that won’t put too much weight and stress on your hair, like most leave-in creamy conditioners will. Most leave-ins will give you extra moisture, but will cause your already weak hair to break off from the heavy weight of the formula. They also clog the scalp pores, restricting healthy hair growth, which leads to bald and thinning areas. Hinoki Hair Thickener is "the answer" that you've been looking for to dry, weak, thinning hair.
After shampooing, while the hair is still damp, put a nickel to quarter size amount in the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together and then through your hair, spreading Hair Thickener from your scalp to the ends of your hair. Afterward, you may style with any styling product you wish. Hinoki Hair Thickener can be used every day if needed.
