The shampoo contains special microbeads which are made of 3 essential oils to stimulate micro-circulation and effectively clean your scalp by removing environmental build up.

The first time I heard about the Rene Furterer shampoo was from my sister. She discovered it on a trip to France and loves how it makes her hair feel. It turns out that Rene Furterer has a specific product line designed to treat thinning hair (be sure to read our review on Rene Furterer Complexe 5 – weekly healthy scalp leave-in treatment).

Rene Furterer Forticea Review

Here are the highlights (pros and cons) about using the Forticea shampoo for thinning hair:

Green Microbeads:

Rene Furterer Forticea Review

Microbeads are designed to stimulate blood micro-circulation as well as more effective scalp cleaning.

The first things you may notice are the green beads contained in the transparent bottle. Those are called micro-beads and are made of essential oils (rosemary, lavender and orange). When you apply it on your hair, you can feel the beads moving around as you wash your hair. Don’t worry, they’re designed to be slowly absorbed into your scalp. Consider it a stimulation add-on.

Great Smell:

Unlike other organic shampoos that often do not include a fragrance, the Forticea shampoo has a very pleasant smell and lasts a long time (in some cases at least half day or longer).

Lifting up the Roots:

This isn’t a shampoo that will make your hair feel silky or soft. BUT, the Forticea stimulating shampoo should add volume to fine hair by adding more texture and lifting hair at the roots.

Dry Scalp: I saw a handful of reviews stating that it made their scalp pretty dry after using it only a few times and I completely agree; however, I’ve also seen the same issue in other shampoos. My solution for this has been to add a couple of drops of argan oil, which always fixes it for me. Another option is to use a hair conditioner to moisturize your hair and scalp if the shampoo dries both out. I personally haven’t tried their conditioner line, so I can’t say if it’s good or not.

Is This the Right Shampoo for You?

If you are suffering from thinning hair, try the Rene Furtere Forticea stimulating shampoo, mainly because it is great for root lifting and adding that extra body your hair needs. Its mixture of essential oils is a great additional benefit for nourishing your hair follicles.
