Alright, so I've officially been using System 1 for almost one year now. I have oily hair (requires daily washing) that is thin, falling, and getting visibly thin at the crown area. First off... the tingly feeling at first goes away after a few uses. The shampoo has no pleasant or unpleasant smell, so don't expect your significant other to stick their nose in your hair and be allured in by the normal girly smells that come so easily with the over the counter products. Now for the important item...performance.... keeping in mind that I wasn't very good at using the conditioner or leave in scalp treatment, my review is only for the shampoo. I used it almost daily for the last year. I was pleasantly surprised I could see difference in my hair growth in 3-4 months. Yes... it's a long time, but think about how long it takes to grow hair! In my experience, it will not prevent breakage and will not prevent hair loss (especially due to stress... ehem (guilty)... or any medical issues. It just helps hair grow out strong and gives your scalp a little umph. Do not buy this product with unrealistic expectations, as you will be disappointed, and be patient! I'm probably going to switch to a volumizing and clarifying shampoo to supplement my routine. Also.... get a really good conditioner (I use mine on just the tips).
I have gone through many in my lifetime, but the Shark navigator has to be the worst. I spent 150.00 on this and it broke down within a month. I am constantly having to "fix" it to make it work. Why? Due to the fact that when I called customer service to fix it, the guy in India told me that I would have to pay to ship it to them and then it would be between 4-6 WEEKS to get it back. I guess they out-source the repair too? What a sham. I will go back to the cheapy 50$ Vacuums that lasted for 9 months with no maintenance before I will EVER pick up another Shark Euro Pro product again.
After 13 years of suffering from horrible constipation and bloating due to IBS (diagnosed when I was 33), I am finally free of symptoms!!! Eight months ago, I was put on an antibiotic that I was told would destroy the bad bacteria in my gut and my symptoms did get better. But over several weeks, the symptoms returned. Every meal, even whole foods, left me bloated and in pain and the constipation returned, as well. A trip back to the gastroenterologist only garnered another prescription for the antiobiotic (which didn't help this time). About this same time, I came across Donna's book and began to incorporate some of her principles, thinking that the levels of good bacteria in my gut were too low to properly digest food. Within days, I could eat and not experience pain. Within a couple of weeks, I was able to go a full day with no symptoms whatsoever. As a test, I tried going two days without eating cultured vegetables and kefir and voila!, the bloating returned. And I am finally "regular" for the first time in 13 years. This book and information have given me my life back. Now I share this information with all of my friends and try to educate them on the importance of our gut health. And the best thing about this book is that it is not another "diet book". It's about lifestyle changes and healing and you incorporate those changes at a rate that is comfortable for you. Thank you, Donna!!!!
