Hey everyone! How are you doing? I hope you said fabulous!
And who is Dr. Groot you ask? Well, “he” is a wonderful thickening shampoo that I’ve been using for about a month now, I’d say. This has really done wonders for my hair. As I’ve matured, my hair has become much thinner at the top, and with my going all natural (gray), my hair is a different texture as well (That’s where the Honey Bees come in). I’ll tell you all about that, but first Dr. Groot Microbiome Scalp Fortifying Hair Thickening Shampoo.
This set (Dr. Groot Hair Thickening Shampoo & Scalp Massager Brush) has helped my hair so much. My hair is feeling and looking much thicker at the top. I can’t see through it as much anymore, and it is styling fabulously just with blow-drying with a round brush. You can see the back of my hair is growing out pretty fast too. It was shaved at the back and along the sides. My sides have grown out to almost completely covering my ears, but I’ve been keeping those tucked behind my ears till they get a little longer.
The Dr. Groot Scalp Massager Brush feels so wonderful. I really enjoy shampooing with this. It is so relaxing, plus I think it is really stimulating my scalp to grow more hair. Here is a link to the complete Dr. Groot line.
And here is Avon’s description of the Dr. Groot Microbiome Scalp Fortifying Hair Thickening Shampoo and how it works:

Okay, so that is phase 1 for me. Growing out thicker hair. Phase 2, styling my thin hair. This is one of the main reasons I went short undercut pixie in the first place. My hair was thinning and looking flat and drab. Well…. now I have 2 new secret weapons for this purpose, and it is all thanks to those sweet and fabulous Honey Bees.
I love, love, love these 2. The Propoli Thera Hair Oil Serum, and the Propoli Thera Volume Spray. I wouldn’t even want to try to style my hair now without these 2.
Avon says “Our rejuvenating hair serum is made with beeswax, honey and royal jelly (what bees eat), and will help strengthen, protect, moisturize and smooth hair. Not to mention, it adds shine as you style!” I truly concur.
And about their Volume Spray, “Catch the buzz and nourish dry, thin and weak hair with the bee goodness of honey, vitamin-enriched propolis extract and royal jelly for healthy-looking body and shine, plus hydrolyzed collagen to infuse every strand with moisture for lustrous volume.
This volumizing spray adds weightless volume and lustrous texture to thinning hair while leaving no residue. Pumps up volume to boost flat hair, and leaves your locks feeling soft and light as air.” Yes, yes, and yes!
The texture of my gray hair is automatically transformed as soon as I apply the Hair Oil Serum. My bangs are almost dry and kind of fuzzy when towel-dried, but as soon as I put a little pump of this serum in my hands, rub them together, and apply, my hair is much more luxurious. A little of this goes a long way, so start with a small amount and add more if needed. I tend to use one pump amount (that’s a small pump, about a dime sized amount) to my bang and side areas, and then another small pump for my crown and back of my head.
I then follow that with spritzes of the Volume Spray. I concentrate most of it in my bang and top of my head areas, but I do apply a little to the back and sides.
Then I blow-dry my hair with a round brush and it is looking and feeling fabulous! No other styling tools needed at this point. I’ve actually just been styling it with my fingers. I used to (before my pixie cut) have to tease my hair to get any volume, but not any more. After blow-drying, I just kind of toss it around with my fingers, and there is volume and it stays! It truly is unbelievable, but you can see for yourself, my results.
I hope you give these wonderful hair products a try. I truly think you’ll be amazed. I know I am, and I am much more positive about growing my hair out again.
Cheers to thicker, shinier, and longer hair!
