Jennifer Grey was at all times the lady with nice hair—till she wasn’t. “I never really had to worry about my hair,” Grey tells Women’s Health. “It was always my ace in the hole. It was curly and I had a lot of it. I could wear it naturally and people would say, ‘I love your hair.’ It never occurred to me that it would change.”
But because the 62-year-old Dirty Dancing star received older, she skilled what many individuals do as they age: Her hair did change. What was as soon as full and lustrous felt by some means much less so. It was refined, and Grey didn’t even actually discover it herself till mid-pandemic when she was having getting a minimize in her stylist’s yard. “I told her that I felt my hair game wasn’t as strong, and she suggested I check out the Harklinikken hair clinic. I was like, ‘Hark-what?’ Can you just write it down for me?”
The merchandise that modified Grey’s hair
After getting the products from her stylist, Grey began researching Harklinikken (Danish for “hair clinic,” BTW) on-line. She quickly realized she had to join a seek the advice of, which appeared like numerous work (“I just wanted to buy the extract product,” Grey says. “But I thought, ‘what the heck, I’ll do the consult.’”).
Soon Grey was assembly with Harklinikken founder Lars Skjøth, who had been researching hair loss in women and men for many years. “Lars told me that the skin on our scalps ages faster than the skin on our faces,” Grey says. “Did you know that?”
There have been extra shocking revelations to come back: Much to Grey’s shock, Skjøth instructed her that she wanted to scrub her hair day by day—a international idea for a curly lady. “It was so counterintuitive to me,” she says. “I was thinking, ‘There’s no way I can wash my hair every day; I’ll just dry it out.’” According to Skjøth, the mountains of merchandise Grey needed to look after and magnificence her hair, have been merely masking her drawback, coating her strands with silicones that might do nothing to facilitate any long-term shift within the high quality or quantity of hair sprouting from her head.
This is how Grey used the system
Grey left her seek the advice of with a day by day shampoo and conditioner, a leave-in she was to comb by her hair, and the hero: A nutrient-rich extract that she was to use on to her scalp nightly. Each extract is custom-made to a selected particular person’s wants and hair, and it was no completely different for Grey.
Harklinikken’s merchandise run from about $15 as much as $88 for the customized extract, and there are extra gadgets within the line—a masks, some styling merchandise—than those advisable to Grey. The others weren’t deemed vital for the particulars of Grey’s scenario, and the streamlined strategy took a minute for Grey to wrap her head round. Still, with nothing to lose, she gave it a attempt. After shampooing and conditioning, she utilized the extract to her scalp…and waited.
How lengthy it takes to see outcomes
Grey seen a change within the high quality of her hair rapidly after beginning the Harklinikken system: “My hair felt very dry, but I followed the instructions and did exactly what Lars told me to do,” she says. “I was doing the system with a girlfriend, and we’d check in on one another and both of us felt like our hair was getting a little bit better; a little bit thicker.”
And then on the four-month mark, Grey took an “after” image—and couldn’t imagine her eyes. “It was pretty dramatic—and I didn’t realize how bad it was until I saw the improvement,” she says. “At first, I thought I was imagining things—my hair couldn’t have grown that much so fast. And the hair that grew back was much thicker and quality was much better.”
That was two years in the past—and Grey hasn’t seemed again. “I don’t want to mess with something that’s working,” she says. Recently, Grey met with a buddy from highschool, who, upon seeing her, assumed she was sporting a head filled with extensions. “People have been commenting, saying how amazing my hair looks. But the best part is that I don’t need to do too much to it anymore. Now, when I wear it just curly right out of the shower, it looks better than it did before because it’s not all shredded and raggedy at the edges.”
