What causes thinning – damaged hair?
It’s completely natural for hair to thin over time. Changes in hair volume can happen for many reasons, including diet, stress, over-treatment, over-styling and the sun.
Do I have to use BIOTA Botanicals Advanced Herbal Care Shampoo & Conditioner before using the Serum?
You may wash your hair with your usual shampoo & conditioner. However, for best results it is recommended that you use our Advanced Herbal Serum in conjunction with BIOTA Botanicals Advanced Herbal Care products.
According to a recent clinical study, more than 97% of subjects reported thicker, fuller and stronger looking hair when using shampoo and serum combined. And, more than 83% of subjects reported thicker, fuller and stronger looking hair when using only BIOTA Herbal Shampoo after six months.*
How to apply serum
Will coloring my hair affect results?
No, coloring your hair will not affect how our product works. We do recommend that you use a natural, ammonia-free product. It is best to wait a day or two after coloring to let your new color fully dry before resuming use of BIOTA Botanicals.
The concern is more about the chemicals found in most colors and dyes and to ensure our product does not affect the coloring process.

How do I use your product if I don't wash my hair everyday?
For those who don’t wash their hair every day, then we very much encourage you to make our Advanced Herbal Care Leave-In Serum part of your daily routine until your hair has returned to its ideal state.
Simply you can wash your hair as usual, and follow directions for daily use of the Serum. A highly concentrated version of the active ingredient, Herbal BioComplex B11, which is found in our Shampoo and Conditioner, the Serum is applied directly to your scalp and is safe and gentle enough to be used daily without washing out.
It has a light, clean herbal scent and it’s not greasy or filmy, so it doesn’t leave any residue or build up on your scalp.
Should I towel dry my hair after applying BIOTA BOTANICALS Advanced Herbal Serum?
It is best to gently towel dry hair before applying BIOTA BOTANICALS Advanced Herbal Serum to the scalp.
Can I style my hair as usual after applying BIOTA BOTANICALS Advanced Herbal Care Leave-In Serum?
Yes. However, keep in mind that prolonged use of hair dryers set on high temperatures has a harmful and damaging effect on anyone’s hair.
If you must use a hair dryer, take care not to use on hot settings for long periods of time. Additionally, if you use styling products, it is best to use those that are as natural and gentle as possible, and limit application to the ends of the hair, avoiding contact with the scalp.
How long do I need to keep BIOTA Botanicals Advanced Herbal Care in while washing my hair? Are there any benefits to leaving it on my scalp longer than 1 ½ – 2 minutes, as directed?
BIOTA Botanicals herbal shampoos, conditioners and leave-in serum for thinning - damaged hair is different than regular, daily-use shampoos. After applying to wet hair, gently massage the Shampoo into the scalp for 1-2 minutes, to ensure the gentle, yet powerful Herbal BioComplex B11, penetrates the hair. Rinse hair thoroughly. Keeping the Shampoo in for an extended period of time will not increase results.
How long should I leave BIOTA Botanicals Advanced Herbal Care Leave-In Serum on my scalp? Do I rinse it out?

Yes. Since BIOTA Botanicals Advanced Herbal Care Leave-In Serum does not cause any discomfort and isn’t noticeable (not greasy or have an unpleasant smell), it can be applied either day or night.
I have light or grey hair. Will BIOTA Botanicals Advanced Herbal Care Leave-In Serum affect the color my hair?
