Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion and Herbal Shampoo Review by

The other week I received an email asking me if I was willing to do a review on a new herbal anti-hair loss product called Novuhair. At first I was not really keen on it as I don’t have hair fall or hair loss problems, at least none as yet. But one look at the company website and I had to say yes. I was impressed with the long list of herbal ingredients the products contain, many of which I personally know to be some of the best in the world – VCO, ginger, moringa – things I have blogged about already actually. So I figured out these products are good for any hair type, balding or not.

The combo pack of Novuhair topical scalp lotion and herbal shampoo arrived last week but I asked the company to give me one week to have them tested on me and my family. Here are my thoughts after a full week of using them.
Novu Hair Topical Scalp Lotion

Novuhair topical scalp lotion is a sort of hair tonic which has to be massaged on the scalp twice a day – in the morning before taking a bath and at the end of the day. It’s a dark, runny and syrupy liquid which smells of grass, sugar, spice … and all things nice. I love it. Really, it smells like no other.

By the smell alone, it’s not hard to believe that the product really has extracts of the herbs it claims to have. I could catch whiffs of ginger, rosemary and lavender. Yet it is also said to have moringa (malunggay), Centella asiatica (takip-kohol), VCO, ginseng, nelli and aloe vera. Biotin and Vitamin B5 are also sneaked in. It has parabens, though, so it’s not really organic, though to its credit, the parabens are listed last. (One rule of product labeling is to list ingredients from the greatest to the least proportion.)

I find the 10-minute, twice-a-day scalp massage quite relaxing but a bit hard to keep, though I guess if I were balding I would be desperate enough to stick to the regimen, lol. It is not particularly greasy and my hubby even used it as a leave-on conditioner (but no, he’s not balding).
Novuhair Herbal Shampoo

Novuhair herbal shampoo, on the other hand, smells so much like the scalp lotion but is more peppery as it has peppermint and lemongrass on top of the other botanicals. I find this shampoo to be a lot more concentrated than most regular shampoos. For my long, layered hair, I only need to pour shampoo the size of a 25-cent coin. It does a great cleansing job as my hair comes out clean without leaving it dry. My hair feels light without feeling stiff, sleek without being weighed down. Thumbs up for this shampoo.


Say goodbye to hair loss with Novuhair by

I have always had fine, limp hair to begin with so it’s always been my frustration to have thicker hair. My diabetes and hormones aggravated my hair woes and I’ve been losing a lot of hair lately not to mention that I can’t skip having my hair rebonded every year..

I’ve tried a lot of hair thickening products in the past but I haven’t found one that delivers consistent results. Three weeks ago, I was sent a pack of Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion and Herbal Shampoo to try out. It was timely, actually, because I just had my hair rebonded again and my hair needed extra loving care after the tedious hair treatment.


Resolutions: How to Know You Are Off to a Good Start

Last New Year’s Eve, amidst the fireworks, overflowing wine and fresh beats, you made a variety of resolves for 2013 that will change your life. Now that we’re well on our way to ending February, what have you done so far?

Just in case you find yourself at a loss for words, here are the three most common resolutions and what you should have already done so far:

1. Leading a healthier lifestyle.

According to Time Magazine, about 60% of gym memberships are unused, and attendance goes back to normal numbers by mid-February. Have you even used yours at all? If not, well, it’s still ok. But by now, you should have at least a good head start by increasing your physical activity on a daily basis. Walk instead of taking the car for short distances or simply waking up at least half an hour early for a morning jog.

How do you keep yourself on track? Monitor your weight on a weekly basis. If possible, have a workout/weight loss buddy who would go on the ‘journey’ with you to keep you motivated.

2. Looking better.

You promised yourself you’ll look amazing this year. Whether it’s making your skin clearer or transforming your hair to something shampoo commercial-worthy, what have you done so far to give yourself a make-over? Getting a good haircut will make for an awesome start, and hopefully, you’ve also already gotten into some good hair care habits.

Using herbal products like Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion paired with Novuhair Herbal Shampoo is one great way of keeping your hair and scalp healthy. The active ingredients of these products are natural, giving you a good start with becoming more ‘green’ too.

3. Spending more time with the family.

You partied and travelled so much last year, and this year you just want to make sure you give your family some love and attention. What have you put on schedule as of today?

Here’s to hoping you have cleared at least a day of your weekend to spend with them. If you haven’t gotten around to doing that yet, how about giving them at least an hour’s worth of quality bonding during your weekdays? It’s not much, but it does get you on track.

It’s too early to give up, and never too late to keep going with your New Year’s resolutions. Start with the positive changes today!

5 Tips to Help Build Self-Confidence in 5 Minutes

Big presentations, giving a speech on stage, job interviews – these are some of the situations that can unnerve a good number of otherwise well-rounded individuals. Others soar above the intense pressure, while some just hopelessly falter.

So how do you make sure to stay composed when it is, finally, crunch time? Read on and find out what you can do to boost your self-confidence in as little as five minutes:

Smile. Better yet, LAUGH.

Before heading to the meeting room, watch a funny video, talk to your funniest friends, or simply find a reason to break into a smile. Doing so would not only take your mind off the pressure, it would also improve your mood and in turn the way you carry yourself.

Make extra effort to look good.

Go the extra mile to be at your best physically.  How you look during that significant moment will make an impact, not only on others, but more importantly, on how you feel about yourself. Make some time for your hair before you head to that extra special moment – transform it into your true crowning glory.

Try out Novuhair’s Topical Scalp Lotion and Herbal Shampoo, which will not only help your hair grow fuller, it will also make it look and feel healthier.

Here’s how to use it:

  1. Take a shower and use Novuhair Herbal Shampoo as you would use other shampoos. We don’t recommend the use of regular shampoos that contain harsh chemicals that damage the hair. You can also use other herbal shampoos like aloe or gugu. But, only Novuhair Herbal Shampoo will compliment the lotion and achieve maximum results.
  2. Rinse and towel dry.
  3. Apply liberal amount of Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion on the target areas.
  4. Massage the scalp for at least 5 minutes.
  5. Rinse and style your hair.
  6. Repeat the same procedure twice a day, morning and evening.

We recommend that if you work indoors, no need to rinse the lotion. Use it like a leave-on. This will produce better results. Refrain from using wax or gel to avoid further damage.


Why should you suddenly break out into squats, crunches, and lunges five minutes before the ‘big meeting’? It gives you that adrenaline rush. Yes, it’s that same feeling that allows people to lift things many times heavier their own weight. If it can make you lug around a refrigerator, it can help you go through that annual report with flying colors.

Speak up.

Best thing to do to get over the nerves? Pump up the volume a bit, to the point where your voice would be clear and audible. This way, your listeners can better appreciate what you have to say, and the sound of your own voice will help keep you on track.

Inheriting Hair Loss and Its Solution

When considering the causes of an ailment, one of the first places to look is our genes. Could it possibly be something you’ve inherited?

With hair loss, this is certainly the case. In fact, it is the most common cause of hair loss, called Androgenetic Alopecia. It occurs in about 95 percent of males and 70 percent in females. Studies reveal that this also occurs in combination with other factors such as aging and hormonal changes.

Symptoms of hereditary hair loss include a gradual thinning of the hair to complete hair loss on a certain part of the scalp, if not entire baldness. The hair loss pattern and rate is different among men and women, though they similarly occur in the 20s and 30s. Family history is the biggest indicator of when hereditary hair loss starts to take place, and at what rate.

The good news is that hereditary hair loss is treatable. And while invasive options such as hair lasers and transplants abound, nature itself has bestowed us with the remedy we need to deal with hair loss.

Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion is a an all-natural formula for treating hair loss. It is made of herbal ingredients such as moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, aloe vera, the essential oils of rosemary and peppermint, and virgin coconut oil. Collectively, the ingredients help improve blood circulation to the scalp and increase nutrients to hair follicles. Other beneficial side effects include returning and locking the hair’s natural luster, and preventing premature graying or whitening.

The brand was first endorsed by hair care expert and beauty icon Fanny Serrano, whose testimony sheds light on Novuhair’s tried and tested effectiveness. Recently, Mr. Andrew Wolff, first-runner up to Mr. World 2012, has also joined the ranks of Novuhair’s brand ambassadors. Known as the NovuMan, Wolff has been using Novuhair as a preventive measure against hereditary hair loss, as well as for hair care maintenance.

Just as hair loss can be inherited from your family, so can you inherit the solution — from nature.

Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion is available at Mercury, Watsons, Rose Pharmacy, South Star, Manson and selected salons in Metro Manila.

Championing nature’s answer to hair loss

If there were an expert on beauty and hair care credible enough to champion beauty-related advocacies, it could be no other than Fanny Serrano – especially when it comes to hair loss. Like us ordinary folks, Fanny has also had his share of bad hair days, enough to know what it’s like to dip in a bit of misery for a moment and feel desperate for a solution. With fate constantly on his side, though, Fanny has also managed to make it through the ordeal a stronger person – and, also, armed with something new to offer.

Fanny was at the peak of his career when he began to lose his hair. The truth would greet him in the morning, as a clump of hair on his pillow; in the shower, as blockage to the drain; and at his own salon, as undeniable evidence on the palm of his stylist’s hand. Panic set in with the truth, and in no time Fanny was looking for a solution.

Herbal shampoos and scalp ointments, specially concocted solutions in pricy vials, products from the local market and far abroad – whatever was available, and promised to keep his hair from falling off his head, Fanny tried it, and to utter dismay. Not one solved the problem for him. Soon, he’d given up and looking, and instead focused his energy on having a wig fashioned for him. It didn’t bring him any confidence, but it did hide the problem.

And then a day like any other arrives, though one with a special occurrence: Fanny stumbled upon Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion. Believing he had nothing left to lose, he tried it, and two weeks into using Novuhair, Fanny was glad he did. Novuhair worked, and Fanny had found what he’d been looking for.

What is it about Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion that makes it work?

Why, no other than nature’s very own ingredients: a blend that includes moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, biotin, aloe barbadensis, and the essential oils of rosemary, lavender, peppermint, lemon grass, and virgin coconut.

With this all-natural blend, Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion helps improve blood circulation to the scalp and increase nutrition to hair follicles, detoxifying the scalp, eliminating dandruff, and ultimately, stimulating hair growth and remedying excessive hair loss.

Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion comes in a humble, 200mL bottle, from which all you need to do is apply it twice a day by massaging an ample amount onto your scalp after taking a bath or rinsing your hair.

Now armed with nature’s very own answer to hair loss, Fanny takes to heart his role and responsibility in sharing the word. Many times in the past, he had been unable to answer clients’ questions on what to do about hair loss – but that’s no longer true for today. When it comes to advocating hair care to both men and women, especially those with difficulty holding on to their mane, Fanny refers them to only one product – that is, the one that works for him: Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion.

Novuhair is available at all Mercury Drug, Watsons, Rose Pharmacy, South Star Drug, Manson Drug, NCCC (Davao and Palawan) and Cory Quirino World of Wellness Stores nationwide, and online on Call 413-6570 or 0922-883-0575 and visit for more details.

Fanny discovers the natural remedy to hair loss

In a time of quick and easy vacation getaways and ever-accessible solutions and remedies to our beauty concerns, many have yet to understand the need for effortless solutions to managing hair loss. The exception would be Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion, which manages your scalp in two ways: Effectively remedying hair fall, and doing so in an accessible, convenient manner.

Made of ingredients as pure as only nature could provide, such as moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, aloe, ginger, centella asiatica, phyllantus emblica, biotin, and the essential oils of rosemary, lavender, peppermint, lemon grass, and virgin coconut, Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion helps improve blood circulation to the scalp and increase nutrition to hair follicles, such that the scalp is detoxified, dandruff is eliminated, and hair growth is stimulated while excessive hair fall, remedied.

Tried and tested by beauty icon and hair care expert Fanny Serrano himself, Novuhair is undoubtedly today’s most effective answer to hair loss.

Having experienced a terrible bout of hair loss during which he had to go as far as getting a wig made to cover a portion of his scalp, Fanny perfectly understands the kind of anxiety victims of excessive hair loss go through. Like them, he’s resorted to trying one self-proclaimed solution after another: From ingestible supplements to herbal, topical creams and shampoos, as well as “special” medicines purchased abroad. His search, which coursed through months, yielded nothing close to a solution. In the end, Fanny was no less at a loss for ideas than he was at the beginning.

His chance with Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion came on a day dressed as any other ordinary day. Fanny thought he’d already lost all the time he could in search for a hair loss remedy; there was nothing more he could lose in trying Novuhair.

And he was right. Indeed with Novuhair, Fanny experienced no such loss, but instead stumbled upon the answer he’d always been looking for – the solution to his problem of excessive hair loss.

Moreover, it was only perfect that it came in a humble, 200mL bottle that demanded no more than applying it twice a day by massaging it onto your scalp after taking a bath or rinsing your hair. In discovering Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion, Fanny not only found the perfect, effective solution to hair loss, he’d also found the most convenient, accessible one.

Such was the perfect discovery in a time of quick and easy getaways and ever-accessible remedies to beauty concerns.

Balancing Work and Leisure: Nature is the Answer!

Sometimes I feel that I should be working harder. At the same time, I wish I’ve had more time to fun and enjoy. I know it’s difficult to solve this problem. Motivating goals and tight schedules can leave me feeling burnt out and drained. On the other hand, spending most of my time on leisure will end up getting nothing done.

It would be nice to live in a world where I only need to do what I want to do, but that isn’t realistic. So how do I achieve a balance between work and leisure?

Maybe spending time with my team in Boracay for a team building will do… Why not?

But what benefits do I get out of this activity?

First Benefit:
It’s going to be a different activity but still doing what is important. We can discuss work candidly from different perspectives and at the same time allow ourselves to enjoy and build teamwork… Nice idea?

Second Benefit:
It’s going to resolve my energy problem. Having been troubled with Dengue fever for the last 3 weeks has consumed my energy. Having the time to do things simply isn’t enough. Certain tasks at work require lots of energy and focus.

Every time I encounter stressful assignments, it’s so easy to feel temporarily drained. I usually take a few minutes of break. But sometimes, what I need is a real break… Valid idea?

Third Benefit:
It’s going to separate work and leisure time. I can guarantee myself certain blocks of time to rest and enjoy. I’ve made it a habit to always give myself one day off per week. I go to my rest house in Pilar, Bataan and devote my day to my backyard garden.

Boracay will give me ample time to sleep – Perfect plan?

And so we pushed through with the activity last February 24, 2012…

Thanks to our boss…

We stayed at Escondido Beach Boracay. The place is so amazing, very quiet, clean and comfortable!

Check out their website at

The food at Escondido’s Crab House is highly recommendable, delicious, excellent serving and plating. The staff are great and very accommodating.

Spending a vacation in Boracay wouldn’t be complete without visiting the Crab House… Mark my word:)

Suffering from hair loss? Not for longer.

Anyone complaining of a terrible hair day? Or, worse: Anyone complaining of losing hair?

Fret no longer: Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion is here to take all your questions, worries, and, ultimately, the cause of your problem.

Made only with natural ingredients such as moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, biotin, and lemongrass, rosemary, lavender, peppermint, and virgin coconut oil, Novuhair works by improving blood circulation to the scalp and increasing nutrition to hair follicles. The scalp is then detoxified; scaling is improved, and ultimately, hair growth is stimulated, dandruff eliminated, and excessive hair fall is remedied.

It’s a tested and proven formula that has even beauty icon, hair care expert, and make-up artist to the stars Fanny Serrano raving about Novuhair to friends and family.

More importantly, apart from being effective, Novuhair is completely safe, too. Being all-natural is one to account for that, but studies have also been conducted to find out for sure.

Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion is safe to use for 12-year-olds and up, with clinical studies revealing 100% surveyed respondents experiencing no adverse side effects with continuous use.

Still doubtful?

The truth is, you’ve no reason to be. Until you’ve tried Novuhair for yourself, then the honest-to-goodness claim stands:

Novuhair, nature’s solution to excessive hair fall, is your solution to hair fall. It works.

Novuhair is available at all Mercury Drug, Watson’s, Rose Pharmacy, South Star, Manson, Cory Quirino World of Wellness Stores nationwide, and NCCC (Davao and Palawan) and online on
