There are many reasons one’s hair might shed more than usual, or thin out over time, which is why there isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ solution to the problem.
That’s why this Shot takes a particularly comprehensive approach, using different Actives that tackle the issue in different ways. Bioactive Functional Keratin strengthens hair anchoring and also lowers inflammatory response; Capixyl™ inhibits DHT and free radicals which interfere with the normal growth cycle, and it also stimulates the follicle; and Peppermint Oil boosts circulation to bring more nutrients to the follicle. We’ve also added Panthenol and Propanidol to keep hair pliable and prevent breakage. All Actives are kind to your scalp, and backed by clinical studies.
Actually, wait a minute…maybe there is a ‘one size fits all’ solution after all!
This Shot has been developed to be compatible with most hair products, including both rinse-off and leave-in products.
Safety, in terms of both people and the planet, is based on regulatory guidelines and further corroborated by the Environmental Working Group database, so you can be sure it's free from any chemicals or toxins of concern, and meets the strictest standards for your health.

** Sheep’s wool from only certified ethical farms audited by AsureQuality New Zealand for the ‘five freedoms’.
A patented 4 amino acid biomimetic peptide with red clover extract rich in Biochanin A. It works by both reducing the things that drive hair loss (free radicals and DHT) and stimulating the follicle to activate growth*. It also supports root anchoring. Best results for Capixyl are demonstrated ater 4 months of regular use.
* Capixyl has been subjected to many clinical studies including a recent study reported in National Library of Medicine (July 2020)
Hydrolysed Rice Protein
Rice is 50% hydrophilic which can thicken the hair cuticle to enhance the appearance of volume
Peppermint Essential Oil
Your hair follicles derive their hair-building nourishment from the surrounding blood. Peppermint Essential Oil contains the compound menthol which boosts blood circulation to deliver more nutrients to the follicle, in turn promoting healthy growth.
Panthenol is a byproduct of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5). It improves the texture of damaged hair, promoting hair’s elasticity to prevent breakage caused by harsh brushing and styling. .

I love this product. I have much less hair falling out and my hair is much thicker and stronger.
Didn't notice any change, maybe I need to use it for longer
I've only been using Thinning Peptides for a couple of weeks but I really think my hair fall has reduced. I'm looking forward to seeing the difference after using for 6 weeks.
I love how soft my hair is after using as well as how much easier it is to manage, I can feel my hair improving
