Dr. Vanita Rattan Hair Thickening Shampoo 200ml, for thinning & brittle hair. Suitable for colour dyed hair.

When used as part of the Dr. Vanita Rattan Hair Range 5 product routine, your hair is likely to feel silkier, thicker and easier to detangle, with less frizz and fewer split ends (as per the 4 week consumer trial).

Main benefits of Thickening Shampoo:

  • Salicylic Acid exfoliates the scalp & reduces dandruff, to allow strong, healthy hair to grow.
  • Peptides and amino acids prevent hair loss and stimulate growth.
  • Biotin strengthens the hair root, adds volume and moisture to the hair.
  • Vitamin E, Argan oil and Amla oil detangles hair and improves hair shine.
  • Niacinamide improves hair structure and increases elasticity.
  • Soyabean increases hair density.
  • Retinyl Palmitate nourishes the scalp.

Dr. V Hair Thickening Shampoo effectively cleanses the scalp and immediately surrounding hair.

Salicylic acid contained in the composition has an additional
cleansing effect, which allows you to enjoy clean and healthy scalp skin for longer.

The perfectly selected extracts, peptides and amino acids contained in
the product can help to prevent hair loss and stimulate the growth of new hair strands.

Biotin strengthens hair roots. Vitamin E and Argan oil help to comb your hair after washing more easily, and Amla oil gives it shine and a healthy look.

For women & men, age 20+ with thinning, brittle hair from ageing and damage over time.

For normal & dry, thinning hair. Types 1a - 4c hair.

Not ideal for persons with an oily scalp. However, it is suitable if the scalp only becomes greasy after 1-2 days.

Not for persons with a history of reactions to topical skin/hair products or overly dry/sensitive/damaged skin.

What is happening to your hair with age?

In females, by the mid-30s, there is a reduction in oestrogen levels. Oestrogen protects the hair root from the hormone testosterone.

This process speeds up at menopause and 40% of those by 70 years of age have female pattern hair loss.

The increased testosterone effect leads to thin, brittle hair, with premature hair loss.

To slow this process, you need to:

- Stimulate hair follicles.

- Improve the health of the scalp so strong, vibrant hair can grow.

- Supply the scalp with essential nutrients.

- Strengthen existing hair to prevent breakage.

Wash your hair 2-3 times a week (max). Lather the Thickening Shampoo on the scalp with plenty of water*, leave for 1 minute then wash off in lukewarm water.

*more water than a normal shampoo may be required due to the salicylic acid content.

Apply Cuticle Repair Conditioner afterwards to give smooth, silky hair. We recommend using the full Dr V Hair range for maximum benefit.

Warning: In general, only apply the products in this range on normal, clean scalp skin, not if cracked/damaged.

In the rare event of skin irritation or an allergic skin reaction, please wash off, discontinue use, let us know and contact your doctor if required. 

1. How long do Dr. V Hair Range products last for?

This will vary for each product and person, however, if usage guidelines are followed, the average duration may be 6-12 weeks approx.

2. Is the Hair Range suitable for pregnancy & breastfeeding?


3a. Is the Hair Range suitable for an oily scalp?

If moderately oily you can try the range, but avoid if very oily.

3b. Is the Hair Range suitable for dandruff?

The hair range may help with moderate dandruff, but it is not sufficient for severe dandruff.

3c. Is the Hair Range suitable for dry/itchy scalp?

The Anagen Boost Hair Tonic is not suitable in this case, but the other Hair Range products are.

3d. Is the Hair Range suitable for colour dyed / bleached hair?

Yes, and it would be actively beneficial for this, to renourish and rebuild the hair strand damaged by the above.

4a. Can you use the Hair Range whilst using other Dr. V or 3rd Party skin products on the face / body.


4b. Can you mix & match the Hair Range with 3rd party haircare products?

You would not need to use any other cosmetic treatment products on the scalp/hair, as the Dr. V Hair Range has all the active ingredients you need.

If prescribed scalp medications are being used, please wait until finished before starting/resuming Dr. V Hair Range.

5. Can I use the Hair Range whilst on Isotretinoin/Roaccutane?

No, please wait until 6 months after completion to use Dr. V Hair Range.

6. Can I apply Hair Range products during the day?

Yes the product range is safe to wear during the day (as opposed to hyperpigmentation kits, which are not).

7. Which products go on the scalp and which on the whole hair strand?

SCALP: Shampoo*, Tonic.

HAIR: Conditioners, Oil.

*The Shampoo is for direct application to the scalp, not for all of the hair strand. The reason we suggest this is to not the strip the hair of moisture; surfactants in the shampoo remove grime & dirt, but on the hair strand this can be drying (all shampoos).

8. Why does the range contain sulfates/sulphates (same)?

We have no general concerns with sulfates (nor is there sufficient evidence to support this), it depends on the type and how they are used.

For example, Sodium Laureth Sulfate is used safely and effectively in our Shampoo as an excellent cleaning agent, which helps to clear the scalp of grime to allow hair to grow. This is substantially different from Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, which we do not recommend.

9. How long does it take to see results?

The timeline below may be broadly applicable to most users:

Immediately (1-3 uses): Hair is easier to detangle, feels smoother/silkier and looks shinier.

After 4 weeks: hair feels thicker, split ends reduced, frizz reduced.

For enhanced benefits, particularly hair length, strength and new growth, combine with Dr. V Collagen Boost and use consistently.

Best Clarifying Shampoo

This shampoo is amazing I use a lot of product on my curls and I tend to have a lot of product build up but this shampoo always leaves my scalp feeling clean and refreshed also leaves my curls hydrated perfect shampoo for dry curly hair.

Shameem (Sheffield, GB)
Dandruff free

I initially bought this shampoo for myself however as i have fine hair i think it was too strong, so i just use it once a month on my scalp to detox. My teenage daughter has had dandruff for a while and though we eventually found a shampoo that worked, it started leaving her hair brittle. This shampoo has left her dandruff free and with shiny nourished hair. Will definitely continue to reorder, currently on 2nd bottle.

Kimberly Stamper (Port Charlotte, US)
Dry, Menopause Scalp

I have dry, sensitive, menopause scalp. This is ONLY product I have found that doesn’t make the situation worse. In fact, it has a calming effect and I no longer randomly scratch my head like a mad woman!

Sadi (London, GB)
Love it

Size is too small for the price even though I adore this product.

Nita Manna (Riga, LV)
Visible difference

I am using the HAIR THICKENING SHAMPOO and Hair Cuticle Repair Conditioner together for almost a month now. I was waiting for sometime to write this review to see the result after a few uses. I am very happy with this purchase... I have noticed a visible reduction in my hail fall (Note: I am also taking the Doctor V Collagen drink daily). I will definitely repurchase both the shampoo and conditioner.

Dawn (Portsmouth, GB)

I have been impressed with this shampoo & love that it's fragrance free. I have suffered with an itchy scalp for a few months now & this shampoo has made a real difference. Will try the conditioner next.
