Formula 82S is a 3-in-1 (shampoo + conditioner + anti-hair loss) product designed to strengthen hair fibres and restore soft, natural texture to damaged hair and aid in the prevention of hair loss. It fills in a vital gap for patients undergoing hair restoration in that it contains an industry-leading level of DHT-blocking Saw Palmetto, and ensures that clients are using gentle cleansers and not damaging new hair growth through the use of sulfates, parabens, and sodium chloride, found in lower quality shampoos.
Formula 82S’ formulation is 100% natural and contains eco-certified cleansers, as well as the active ingredient, Saw Palmetto, a natural botanically derived 5-alpha reductase inhibitor shown in studies to reduce DHT production, the leading cause of hair loss. 82S also helps new hair grow stronger and existing hair recover its vitality due to a highly-effective blend of natural extracts, amino acids and vitamins.
Formula 82S was recently updated to increase the amount of Saw Palmetto it contains and its primary surfactant and conditioning ingredients improved, leading to greater sudsing and conditioning while retaining the core benefits of the formula. Formula 82S leaves hair feeling soft, healthy and easy to comb, without the need for a separate conditioner, and is an excellent complement to a daily regrowth regimen, such as one involving Formula 82M or Formula 82F (for men only).
