Any one thinking of trying Scalpure?

I read the article and then checked their website. No full ingredient listing. Looks interesting but I am skeptical. But would love to think it might work.

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~

    I'm thinking about trying it . I just sent an email off to them asking if they thought it would strip my color . I have a feeling it might . If not I'll give it a try .

    I just tried this product for the 1st time. I am transitioning and have one serious chemically induced spot in the top of my head and I am desperate. It went on smooth, and felt tingly. After I rinsed it felt hard, but after my shampoo, it felt really good so we shall see.

    Please keep us posted on how it works for you . I did speak to someone there yesterday about it stripping color . He said some people have issues with it stripping and some do not . He suggested using it right before I color . Come payday I will probably order and give it a try,

    Because my hair is very unhealthy, the instructions say to use it every other day and so far, no compliants. I am noticing my hair is softer and feels a lot better. I will continue to post updates.

    Just wanted to let you know my experience. I got Scalpure today, followed the instructions to a 'T', and I am seriously considering sending it back.

    First off, it made my scalp itch like crazy, and I never have that problem with any other products.

    Second, it was gritty-feeling in my hair. I could get past that, if it actually did what it says it will.

    Third, after I rinsed, shampooed (non-sulfate) and conditioned (twice, no protein formulas), my hair felt thick, but not a nice healthy thick feeling. It felt very dry and straw-like, even with a moisturizing conditioner still in it.

    Lastly, when I tried to detangle my wet hair, I had a lot of fall-out in my detangler comb. My hair feels like it's coated with rubber cement. It's sticking together and it won't stay detangled. I combed thru it as best I could, and am waiting for it to dry. It's all clumpy at the roots and just feels gross.

    I was hoping for better results, since I make a scalp oil using some of the same ingredients listed on the jar, only mine is an actual oil that has previously helped regrow my hair after I had an extreme shedding phase. I'm wondering if the calcium bentonite is what my hair is not agreeing with.

    The ingredient listing is as follows:
    Purified spring water, Calcium Bentonite, Japanese Honeysuckle Flower extract, Peppermint oil, Tea Tree oil, Cedarwood oil, Organic sage extract, Organic Burdock root extract, Mauka oil, Jojoba oil.

    Follow up:

    After my hair dried, it still felt sticky and gross. The mid-lengths and ends were matted and tangled within a few hours of air-drying, and it still felt like it had a rubbery, sticky coating. No exaggeration. I had to shampoo twice with Neutrogena anti-residue formula. Gonna have to do a deep-moisture treatment as well. My hair (long, baby-fine waves/curls) is sensitive to protein, and even though scalpure has no proteins listed in the ingredients, I ended up with the same awful results as if it was full of them.
    I recommend Excelsior Millenia Mud instead. Far cheaper than this stuff, and does a much better job of plumping the hair shaft, leaving it silky and shiny, and rids the scalp and hair of residue without stripping or protein, if proteins are an issue for you.

    [FONT=&quot]Who wouldn’t try anything to improve hair conditions, and people with thin / thinning hair are no exceptions! The product ‘Scalpure’ seems promising but it is better to be careful when experimenting with new stuff. The results may not be the same for everyone. There are mixed reactions to the product on the forum. It has worked well for some, not so for others. Hair and scalp have to be treated with care; better to be safe than sorry! [/FONT]

    I've been using Scalpure for a little over a month and I think its great. Seems to bring out more natural waves in my hair. My scalp is definitely healthier and I like the way my hair is looking since I started using it. I saw what erinlee13 wrote... I think she didn't rinse the product thoroughly because there is no way it would leave your hair like she said if it was rinsed properly and then washed with shampoo. Everytime I use it my hair feels lighter and fluffier.
