SMiB Anti Hair Loss Shampoo and Treatment Honest Review

My honest review:

A little bit of background about myself - I’m in my late 20s and have oily and flat hair. I have to wash my hair daily or else my hair will look greasy and my scalp will start to itch over time. Before trying SMiB’s products, my bedroom floor was often littered with an alarming amount of hair after each hair wash and blowout. I could often find 2-3 strands of hair each time I run my fingers through my hair (which meant my hair wasn’t strong enough to withstand the gentle force caused by my fingers?) Baby hair was also absent from my head, which probably meant that my hair was falling out at a faster rate than it could be replaced

As I was a first-time user and wasn’t sure about the effectiveness of SMiB’s hair products on my head, I only purchased the Coral Calcium Shampoo and Coral Calcium Treatment to try them out.

After using SMiB’s shampoo, I could feel how thoroughly cleansed my scalp was. The shampoo was effective in removing excess sebum from my scalp with just a single wash without leaving a stripping feeling on it. However, I do not encourage you to use just the shampoo alone without the treatment. I had tried that and realized that even though my hair was much fluffier on the top, the ends were pretty dry and I personally felt that it would make my hair more prone to breakage.

I strongly recommend using SMiB’s treatment after each hair wash. The treatment was amazing and left my hair absolutely silky and smooth! What I loved about this hair treatment is the fact that it CAN be used on the scalp. Most hair conditioners or treatments available in most stores can only be used on your hair ends as applying them on the roots can weigh down your hair and cause it to appear greasy right after washing. There is no point in my hair still looking greasy after a hair wash right? I did not experience this “greasy issue” at all when I applied SMiB’s treatment to my roots! Yay!

After using SMiB’s shampoo and treatment, my hair fall was significantly reduced over time. Combing or running my fingers through my hair also seldom ended up with loose strands of hair falling out. In fact, baby hair even started appearing on my scalp (!!!) This was an unexpected bonus for me as the last time I witnessed significant baby hair growth on my head was when I went for scalp treatments at a salon (sadly, my baby hair stopped popping out once my package expired and I stopped receiving the treatments).

However, I did notice that my baby hair fell off pretty quickly. Perhaps my scalp did not receive enough stimulation or nutrients due to the lack of massaging and essence which were recommended by SMiB to maximize the effectiveness of their hair care products.

My Verdict

Overall, I strongly recommend using SMiB’s Anti Hair Loss shampoo and treatment. If you are a disciplined user who will massage your head daily and apply hair care regularly besides washing them, you should perhaps purchase SMiB’s full set of hair products (including the massager and the essence). I’m pretty sure that the results would be much more effective than just using their shampoo and treatment!

As I have only tried two of their products - the Coral Calcium Shampoo, and Coral Calcium Treatment, I will only be reviewing both products. The Coral Calcium Shampoo and Coral Calcium Treatment both contain KFDA-certified ingredients that help to reduce hair fall. Their key ingredient, Coral Calcium, builds on the scalp barrier while the six proteins and marine complex found in their formulation keep the hair silky and smooth. Copper tripeptide is also present and it helps to keep the scalp healthy and the hair resilient.

How to use SMiB Anti Hair Loss products?

If you are buying the full set of hair care products, refer to the following steps.

Step 1: SMiB Shampoo

Rinse your hair with water to wash away accumulated dirt and contaminants. Wet your hair thoroughly so that you will be able to create a lather with the shampoo. Depending on your hair length, press 2-3 pumps of SMiB Shampoo and massage it all over your scalp and hair. Rinse the shampoo off completely afterward.

Step 2: SMiB Treatment

Apply an adequate amount of SMiB Treatment to soften the entire length of your hair. Gently massage the treatment into your hair and scalp for a few minutes. Make sure to rinse your scalp and hair thoroughly afterward.

Step 3: SMiB Plasma Scalp Massager

Ensure that your hair and scalp are completely dry before proceeding to this step. Use the massager to comb through your hair and scalp. Section your hair part by part so that you can cover and reach all areas of your scalp.

For intensive care, hold the device over areas of concern (e.g., balding spots, wide hair parting) for 10 seconds without brushing. You can extend the time of usage gradually but do not exceed 5 minutes each time. This gentle massage will stimulate your hair follicles and promote hair growth.

Step 4: SMiB Coral Calcium Scalp Essence

Spray the essence evenly onto each part of your scalp. Use your fingers to spread and massage the essence gently into your scalp. Leave the essence on and do not rinse it off.
