Today, I have a great addition for all of those "beauty junkies" like me. Or for anyone who might be suffering from thinning hair. Thinning of the hair can happen for several reasons, including pregnancy, heat styling, the regular use of hair color and relaxers, and even just the aging process.
I happen to have very thick, long, wavy hair. (This actually is a pain in the butt. I can't ever get my hair to DO anything!) Anyway, while my hair is still pretty darn thick, I did notice that after having back-to-back pregnancies a few years ago, a little bit of thinning did occur. Probably due to the fact that my hormones were going completely haywire for so long! Anyway, my hair did bounce back eventually, but not completely. It did seem like some of the fullness and body in my hair had been lost.
So when I first heard about the Hinoki Oil System for thinning hair, I was definitely interested. This line includes 4 products, which are designed to be used together. These are meant to be used long-term, and with every wash of the hair. With regular use, the Hinoki Oil System promotes hair volume, strength, and a healthy scalp. By the way, a healthy scalp produces more hair!
Please keep in mind, this product simply promotes hair and scalp health. It will not repair split ends, etc. Nor is it designed to cure or treat any conditions or diseases. If you have specific concerns, please consult your physician and/or stylist before using.
Men and women, with any hair texture (curly, straight, thick, or fine), suffering from thinning hair, hair loss, slow-to-grow hair, or dandruff, will all benefit from using System Hinoki products on a regular basis. That's right! This can be used on ALL hair types!
WHAT’S IN IT:
The key ingredient in the System Hinoki products is Pure Hinoki Oil, or “Chamaecyparis Obtusa Oil.” This is a unique ingredient, known for its natural antifungal and antibacterial qualities, is not found in many haircare products today, however it has been used for over 2,000 years in Japan and other parts of Asia to treat different types of skin ailments. The shampoo and conditioner also include Retinyl Palmitate, a form of Vitamin A and one of the primary antioxidants found naturally in skin; it is FDA approved and used to stimulate cell renewal and enhance skin elasticity. Unlike many other products marketed to hair growth, System Hinoki is drug free so safe to use for long-term results!
HOW TO USE THE HINOKI OIL SYSTEM :
This awesome system contains 4 different products:
This system is very simple to use. You simply wash and rinse as you normally would, using the System Hinoki Shampoo and Conditioner. (They have a nice, almost herbal scent that I LOVE, too!) Most people won't have any reaction to these products, but if itching is experienced, cut back use from every time you wash to every third wash.
After you've washed and conditioned, it's time to use the Hinoki Plus. This should be applied to damp hair, directly at the scalp. Separating the hair with your fingers or a comb make this easy as pie.
After that, it's time for the last step: Adding the Hair Thickener to the mix! Just squirt a generous blob of product into the palm of your hand and work it into the hair, from the roots to the ends.
That's it! Now you're ready to style as you normally would.
I have been using System Hinoki for 3 months now, and I am pleased to say that I have noticed some pretty promising results. My hair does seem to be bouncier and have more volume. I can't say that I have any added hair growth, but thanks to the awesomeness that is Pure Hinoki Oil, my scalp is in much better condition to grow hair to its full potential. It's strange...My scalp literally feels different to the touch. It's not nearly as dry as it normally would be, especially this time of year.
I do have to say, I had to seriously, seriously ration the product to make it last the full 3 months. I mean, I was S-T-I-N-G-Y with it. Maybe it's just because my hair is very long and there's a lot of it, but one bottle of each product is definitely not sufficient for my hair over a 3 month period. I am wondering how my results might have been different if I had been using more product on my hair. Guess I will have to order some more to see!
Overall, I am pretty pleased with my System Hinoki experience. My hair is definitely very soft, very bouncy, and almost weightless. It really does look and feel wonderful, which is saying a lot for my wavy, often unmanageable mane!
If you're looking for a great way to make your hair look fuller and more "alive", or you're just looking for a good system to promote overall hair and scalp health, definitely check out the Hinoki Oil System. You might be pleasantly surprised like I was!

I saw this and hoped it was a give away. My hair is so thin I can't stand it. I haven't had any large patches fall out recently. At least not that I can see. I have to try this!
11/25/2014 04:27:20 am
Actually, I was just offered a giveaway by the brand! So keep your eyes open...I should have it up today if my kids behave, or tomorrow sometime. It will be for the complete system, as seen in my review.
11/25/2014 07:39:33 am
Forgive my spelling. I have alopecia arete. I lose patches of hair from time to time. It grows back but it's much thinner and usually comes in white.
11/25/2014 09:58:25 pm
My hair is frizzy and fly-away.
11/26/2014 07:22:52 am
Along with thin hair, my hair is very wavy and tangles easily. I am trying several different products to find one that I can wet comb through.
11/26/2014 08:29:46 am
My hair is starting to thin out in the front were the bangs should be. It is very noticeable and is very embarrassing.
11/27/2014 07:40:00 am
I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving day! My hair, well, if it were thick it would be nice. It tangles easily to where I can't comb through it. Sometimes I just cut the knots out.
12/1/2014 06:53:21 am
I need a product that will strengthen my hair and make it easy to wet comb through. If my hair looks thicker, that's a plus. I don't color or use heat on it at all.
12/1/2014 09:13:34 am
My hair seems to be thinning. It's freaking me out. I am not even 30 yet.
12/2/2014 02:33:31 pm
I hate how my baby hairs frizz out but the rest of my hair stays normal.
12/3/2014 07:40:50 am
I have been sick for over 3 months. I'm on my 2nd course of antibiotics, It's taken a toll on not only my body, but my hair too,
12/3/2014 08:18:12 am
Sadly, it is the fact that I have thinning hair. Was hoping I wouldn't get the family jeans with this, but I have and in the past couple of years it has really thinned out.
12/3/2014 02:27:49 pm
I wish my hair would quit falling out and getting everywhere! Nothing is safe!
12/4/2014 02:44:21 am
my hair is super thin! so dry & very prone to breakage! ive been trying to grow out my hair for the longest time! i barely ever straighten it anymore trying to get back its texture and give my hair a rest and still nothing changes i do hair masks and treatments endlessly & i still have no luck! i just want long thick pretty hair and nothing seems to be working ! my hair needs a miracle!! :(
12/4/2014 08:10:19 am
I don't know if it's the environment or age. It seems common to hear of women with thinning hair. It really su, uh, stinks.
12/5/2014 08:24:51 am
I would be happy to have the hair that I had years ago. I try to take vitamins and never use heat on my hair. I need to find a good deep conditioner to use weekly.
12/5/2014 10:08:44 am
My hair gets oily quicker than it used to. I wonder if that has to do with my hair thinning.
12/7/2014 12:31:13 pm
My baby boy is learning how to pull my hair. Does that count as a hair woe?
12/8/2014 11:09:51 am
I am thinking of trying coconut oil on my scalp to help with dryness.
12/9/2014 08:11:31 am
I guess women and men both suffer from thinning hair as they age. That must be why old ladies wear those crazy looking perms, to make their hair look thicker.
12/9/2014 01:15:00 pm
I need to get a shower hair catcher before I clog the drain.
12/10/2014 02:06:25 am
Right now it is thinning hair and it's getting bad. I wish it would stop!
12/10/2014 07:32:54 am
My hair, even though it's trimmed on a regular basis tends to tangle a lot. So much so that I have to cut the knots out. It;s so thin, I wish I could go to one of those hair clubs for a transplant.
12/10/2014 10:23:17 pm
My hair is dry and damaged I shed horribly.
12/10/2014 11:20:16 pm
My hair is think and damaged :(
12/11/2014 08:05:43 am
My hair knots up very easily. I would like to have strong, thick hair. I don't use color or heat and take vitamins.
12/11/2014 02:15:31 pm
I found my first white hair a week after I had my son (about 4 months ago). Haven't seen one since but that was interesting to me.
12/12/2014 05:42:20 am
My hair breaks and then I have those weird short little wisps on my hairline...ugh.
12/12/2014 10:13:10 am
I have been hearing about rinsing with apple cider vinegar. I wonder if it would help.
12/12/2014 07:35:16 pm
My hair has always been thin, but now that I am getting older, it just keeps getting thinner, I have to keep it in a ponytail because there's not much I can do with it.
12/13/2014 05:57:15 am
I am entering this contest more so for my mother than myself. She is getting up in age and her hair has been thinning out over the years. Her hairline is almost nonexistent and I can see her scalp at times depending on the hair style she wears. This would be an awesome gift to win for her! Thanks!
12/14/2014 02:21:58 am
I have hair all over the place every morning when I wake up.
12/14/2014 08:44:01 pm
My woes are dry and frizzy hair and thinning towards the front the older I get.
12/15/2014 03:12:52 am
12/15/2014 08:08:11 am
my thin, straight hair
12/15/2014 08:17:31 am
My biggest hair woes is thinness and no volume.
12/15/2014 10:09:39 am
I lose a lot of hair. I wish it would stay in my head.
12/15/2014 11:01:24 am
Thinning hair is definitely my biggest hair woe
12/15/2014 12:42:24 pm
I guess I was thinking too much about this giveaway. I had a dream my hair started falling out ha ha.
