But, I’ve got ya!
I have taken a deep dive into two beasts in the hair growth game and gone head to head with them: Lipogaine vs. SheaMoisture JBCO.
We’re looking at things like:
- Application method (whether you want a topical or pill specifically, this is good to know)
- Hair suitability (some topical products don’t work as well for different hair types)
- How long to results?
- Price (which, of course, overall will be determined by how it takes to get results
- And all the rest…

What The Sales Page Doesn’t Tell You About Lipogaine
First Impressions and Scent
Unboxing the Lipogaine Big 3 Shampoo: When I first got my hands on Lipogaine Big 3, the packaging didn’t scream luxury, but it was functional and straightforward. It’s a no-nonsense bottle that you would easily recognize in your shower caddy.
Scent Notes: Upon first use, I noticed the scent. It’s subtle, leaning more towards a medicinal aroma than a floral or fruity scent that you might find in typical shampoos. To be honest, if you are sensitive to strong smells or prefer your hair care to come with a pleasant fragrance, you might be slightly put off by this.
The shampoo isn’t designed as an olfactory experience; instead, its focus is on treatment and effectiveness against hair loss—which is something worth noting if scent plays a big part in your purchasing decisions.
Texture and Application
Getting to Know the Product: The texture of the shampoo is fairly thick compared to other shampoos I’ve tried. It lathers quite well despite containing fewer sulfates—something which took me by surprise as usually sulfate-free products don’t foam up as much.
Lathering Up: In terms of applying it to my scalp, it was smooth sailing. The shampoo spread evenly without needing an excessive amount of product; however, for those with longer or particularly thick hair, you may find yourself using more than anticipated to get full coverage of your scalp and hair.
I left it in for a couple of minutes as directed before rinsing thoroughly. Some users might wish for more slip for detangling purposes—Lipogaine Big 3 doesn’t provide much in that regard compared to some moisturizing counterparts on the market.
Efficacy and Hair Feel After Use
Hair Loss Claims: Now let’s cut to the chase—the efficacy concerning hair loss prevention. While no shampoo can work miracles overnight, consistent use of Lipogaine Big 3 over several weeks did seem to reduce shedding during brushing and washing for me personally.
I appreciated that there was no heavy residue left behind; my hair felt clean but not stripped of its natural oils—a delicate balance that some hair-loss-targeted shampoos struggle with maintaining.
I can’t say my hair started growing like wildflowers after using this shampoo alone—let’s be real here—but combined with other treatments recommended by my dermatologist (like minoxidil), there seemed to be a synergistic effect that likely helped improve my overall scalp health and consequently reduced shedding significantly over time.
Pricing Versus Results — Worth It?
In terms of pricing—it’s not cheap. For someone used to buying drugstore shampoos under $10 bucks per bottle could experience some initial sticker shock. However when considering treatments specifically aimed at reducing hair loss, prices tend toward the higher end anyway so Lipogaine Big 3 sits somewhat within expectation here.
