I talked to my rep yesterday about the amount that should be sprayed on the roots of your hair. She told me no more than 5 pumps of the spray. She said that we should start seeing new growth in 4 weeks or sooner.

Just wanted to let you all know.

Am I the only one using it?

Lucyluc,

This bottle of liquid will last a lot longer than a month. Even with both of us using it, I think it will last at least 6 months.

I don't want to say what I sell it for as it's against the rules of the forum and we have such wonderful moderators, I don't want to get on their badside. LOL!

Does the hair serum have any of the same ingredients as the lash serum?

Hey Patty? Is this age intervention for hair a Jan Marini product? Is this product supposed to grow new hair for parts of the scalp where hair has fallen out? Please let me know.. Thanks, much.

Hi There,

It's my understanding that the hair serum is for hormonal hair loss. I really don't know how this will work because I've been told by 2 hairdressers that when a follicle is dead - it's dead. So whether this can grow hair where there has been no hair for years, remains to be seen. If it works like I hope it will work, we should see a big announcement on The Today Show or GMA. I'll let you know how it works for me and for my husband. It's going to be easier to tell on him because his hair is so much shorter.

Here is the list of ingredients:
Deionized Water, Butylene Glycol, Spironolactone, Hydroxypropyl Starch, Phosphate Ester, Steareth-100(and)Steareth-2, Propylene Glycol(and)Diazolidinyl Urea(and)Methylparaben, Zinc, PCA, Panthetine, Kiwi Fragrance, Hydrolyzed Oat Protein, Dipotassium Glycyrrhetinate, Niacinamide, 5-Heptenamide, 7-(3.5-dihydroxy-2(3-hydroxy-4-3 (trifloromethyl)-1-butenyl)cyclopentyl)-,N-ethyl, (1R-(alpha(Z), 2beta (1E,3R), 3alpha, 5alpha.

Whew!! Does all this mean anything to anyone?

Patty

I saw it on a site for $170.00 for 4 oz. Don't know how long that would last, but for only 4 pumps I would think at least 3 months, maybe 6.

Can someone please post the brand/manufacturer of this product? Sounds great and I'd like to Google it to learn more.

Oh sorry. Yes it's Jan Marini and no, I can't tell my hair has grown. My hair grows fast enough. It's the thickness of it that concerns me so I hope this works.

Hi Patty,

Any updates? I realize it's too soon for hair growth but I'm wondering how it's working for everyday styling. Does it build up at all. BTW, JM states that this isn't a styling product, but I can imagine if you're using it daily (as you're supposed to) & not washing out, there maybe some stiff, sticky feeling. That's what I'm afraid of...

I'm not sure how this company is selling this product OTC. Spironolactone is a prescription medication. It's a blood pressure medication and one of the side effects is it's an anti androgen. The only way you can get this medication is by prescription.

Does anyone know how they can include a PX medication in an OTC product? I've never seen this before.

Well..at least I know there's an 'active' ingredient in there..and JM hasn't exactly been playing by the rules of late anyway.

Is that against the law? I can't imagine taking coedine and making an OTC pain relief tablet from it by mixing it with other ingredients. I know coedine is a controlled substance, but you know what I mean.

BTW, people have taken Spironolactone and diluted and applied it topically for years and I've never heard of it growing hair in anyone, you can imagine if it worked, you would have heard about it by now:)

A lot of people take it to decrease excess hair growth (it does a great job) and it also helps acne. People who use it for acne can have amazing results with almost no side effects. Worst side effect is it's a diuretic so you go to the bathroom a few times more than normal. Some people try to take it for their skin and just don't tolerate it well and know it within a few days they just don't feel right. Overall it's a very safe drug.

Perhaps there's another active in there that she's using for the hair growth?

I can't tell any difference yet Marina. But I can't imagine the company putting out a bad product. And I'm sure that after the AIE fiasco, they have their ducks in a row and all is on the up-and-up with the hair serum. But stranger things have happened so who knows.

Marina, my husband doesn't notice a difference at all as far as any residue goes. It's hard for me to tell because of the other stuff I use on my hair. But to me, I think it makes my hair feel stiff until I brush through it. I'm very careful to just put it on the roots. My rep told me that a total of 5 sprays should be enough. It's not. It's more like 10 sprays. But a little goes a long way and I think this bottle will last a long time.
I don't know what to tell you except to wait and see if it works for those of us using it. I certainly hope it works because I bought a case of it and I cannot sell it if I don't believe in it. I hope the next time I'm at the hairdressers she sees a lot of new growth. Wouldn't that be wonderful!!!

Hi, Patty. Thanks for the updates on your experiment with the JM hair serum. I've been away from the forum for several weeks and may have missed the outcome of the AIE fiasco. From reading the new ingredients list for the AIE, it looks like maybe JM just had to change the ingredients list? Like, where JM listed the mysterious *eyelash growth factor* before, they now have to list the individual ingredients? Or, do you know if JM actually changed the ingredients of their AIE?

Also, if I remember, the buzz was that the secret ingredient in AIE was prostaglandin. Now I'm wondering if that long list of ingredients that the AIE and the hair serum share is actually the chemical make-up of prostaglandin. Do you happen to know?

I can say that the AIE worked very well for me, and I was sorry to run out of it so long before it became available again. I'm reluctant to repurchase without knowing if the ingredients have changed. If the hair serum works as well as the old AIE serum worked, I'd be interested.

Oops. Read a little deeper into the past few days threads and found my answer here.

It appears that the "old" and "new" AIE are the same product with the ingredients relabeled. And that the ingredient(s) AIE and the hair serum have in common are the chemical name for prostaglandin. At least if the posts on that thread are correct.

The "old" AIE worked so well for me...now I'm definitely interested in the hair serum. I'll be watching your updates with interest.
