Y’all know I’m all about the hair (fake hair, of course), but have you heard about Follinique hair growth treatment?
Hair growth treatments sometimes pique my interest because, you just never know, right?
If I can regrow some of my hair, then I’m all for it. After all, the longer I keep my hair the longer I can wear my toppers.
I’ve never heard of this company, but thanks to some of my lovely eagle-eyed readers, I heard about these AMAZING before and after photos from a hair growth treatment company called Follinique.
Follinique Hair Growth Treatment: The Promise
Follinique hair growth treatment promises to regrow hair with a 2% minoxidil solution, and you can see results in as early as two months.
It’s typical to Rogaine in that you apply the solution twice daily to the top of your head and allow to dry. Then go about your day.
Follinique hair treatment also promises to keep your hair lustrous and restore elasticity. Whatever that means.
Sounds great, right?
Follinique Hair Regrowth Treatment Before and After: Does it work?
I mean, check out this fabulous before and after pic of this lucky gal who regrew all of her hair using Follinique:
This company labels me as “Christine”, who regrew all of her hair using Follinique hair growth treatment. I’m 43 years old and a teacher who was “scaring off the school children” with her thinning hair. I found Follinique, won the hair growth treatment lottery, and in a matter of weeks regrew all of my hair.
I contacted Follinique about this heinous review by calling the number on their website, and was put through to a call center that apparently services multiple products.
I spoke with several well-trained and compassionate employees (you sense the sarcasm, I hope?) over the course of several days.
One hung up on me.
Another said their manager would call me back (never happened).
Yet another said they have no proof that those images aren’t mine (huh?).
All said that no supervisor was on duty.
All of them were complete jerks. Truly, the least caring people I have come across in a long time.
I’m aware many call center employees really have no affiliation with the company, and I wouldn’t be surprised if those people knew anything about Follinique (in fact, one of them asked me what product I was even referring to). It did sound like a large customer service center as I could hear many employees talking to customers in the background.
Everyone I spoke to spoke perfect English.
I made a video about my experience with Follinique and their bogus hair growth treatment. I hope you’ll watch and consider sharing in any way that’s possible.
I absolutely despise that Follinique is using my before and after pictures (of me wearing Tressmerize human hair, by the way) to dupe desperate women into buying a hair growth treatment that likely will not give results.
It’s really just shameful.
And for those of you wondering how to prevent this, 99% of my pics on my blog have watermarks with my blog name. But, usually I place them out of the way so that you can focus on the photo. Maybe I need to rethink this practice.
I’m hoping that by writing this blog post and doing a video about Follinique that it might be found in Google search results for women researching hair loss treatments. There are several Follinique reviews out there (mainly videos) that I have not watched, but I do hope that those doing their research will find out what this company did and quickly reconsider spending up to $60 per month on a treatment that doesn’t work.
Because, if it worked, their website would have REAL before and after photos (their website currently has none). They would also have plenty of real women to use in their advertisements.
What do you think about what they did/what they are doing? What action do you think I should take, if any?
If they were using my photos on their website, I’d have a clear course of action. But, because they are using them in their ads, it gets fuzzy.
Note: I may write a few follow up posts about Follinique hair growth treatment, but likely won’t email them out. I may also set the “publish” date a few weeks back so they don’t appear at the top of my site (because how many posts does one want to read about Follinique, really?). The goal of any of these subsequent posts is Google domination. 🙂
Oh, and if anyone wants to read more about the product I’m wearing in the “after” shot, you can read more about Tressmerize human hair in my post “Tressmerize: Gorgeous Human Hair Extensions + Topper“.
