What is the Black Hair Boosting Shampoo?
The Black Hair Boosting Shampoo acts as an all-rounded hair cleanser that also doubles as an intensive treatment for both your scalp and strands. From the founder Yura, the main ingredients are

  • Phytosphingosine-1-phosphate (P1P) for short, Willow Bark Extract and Chamomile Flower Water
    • Together they penetrate the skin of the scalp and their collective anti-inflammatory essence calms everything down well
  • Niacinamide and Hesperidin
    • Improves blood circulation to the scalp. With constant nourishment throughout, the scalp can produce strong voluminous hair
  • Pro-Vitamin B5 and Willow Bark Extract
    • Vitamin B5 actively coats each strand, effectively increasing overall volume. Willow Bark Extract layers over hair strands, protecting them from the elements that would weaken them

Below is a comparison with another hair product that was provided

What is P1P?

There was a news release from that shared it is a cell-regenerating substance developed in Korea, which is thought to be effective in overcoming hair loss caused by stress, is now drawing attention from the domestic hair loss prevention and treatment industry.

Before identifying P1P, the team learned that S1P (Sphingosine 1 Phosphate) found minimally in the blood helps to regenerate cells in the body and prevents aging. They continue the research and delved into the matter in search of its analogs, and succeeded in identifying P1P.

Since The Black promotes that it lets you do Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) at home, we read more about it.

The treatment hasn’t been definitively proven. It also hasn’t been approved as a treatment by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. However, famous athletes like Tiger Woods and tennis star Rafael Nadal have been known to use these injections to help heal injuries.



  • The product is made by a Hair Clinic that has doctors on board (read about it at our History of The Black later).
  • It is super expensive and hard to find any independent reviews online
Reviews from Qoo10
  • Fast delivery. 1st time try this product 
  • Fast delivery and can't wait to try. 
  • Goods were delivered in good condition! 
  • fast delivery yet to use 
  • Received on 4th working day 
  • Repeated buyer. Always amazed at the products Cocomo brings in. Thanks for the fast delivery! 
  • Well received and yet to try. I hope it helps to reduce my hair drop. 
  • Shampoo and tonic came well packaged, and delivery was fast. The shampoo is a big bottle and not much is needed to lather up to wash hair. It should be able to last some time. The tonic leaves a minty feeling on the scalp. Hope to see some results soon. 


History of The Black

in 2003, The Black Hair Transplant Network was established in Daegu Korea. 

In 2011, it expanded a branch in Seoul for foreign patients, with English speaking surgeon and a native English consultant.

Based on Google Maps, they are still around, but it was tough to find any English reviews of the clinic. The clinic seems to be located in the shopping building.

Based on WhatClinic, the Seoul Branch has 1 positive review (so little for a 2011 company) and provides the following services. The low review count might be due to pricing or nobody wanting to share their hair transplant problem?

  • Moustache Transplant from $2796
  • Beard Transplant $4194 - $5592
  • Eyebrow Transplant from $4194
  • Eyelash Transplant from $4194
  • Sideburn Transplant from $4194
  • Hair Transplant $5592 - $8388

Anyway, a video of their clinic.
