Rene Furterer Complexe 5 review

According to the official site, Complexe 5 is designed to strengthen and fortify your scalp from the roots. This liquidy serum is formulated with essential oils (orange oil and lavender oil are two active ingredients) for effective cleansing and stimulating scalp circulation.

When you apply the Complexe 5 serum on the scalp, the first thing you’ll notice is a heating sensation. It’s nowhere close to be dramatic, but you can definitely feel it.

The company states that this sensation is an indication that micro-circulation is properly activated in the roots of your hair. Also, the tip makes it easy to apply directly onto the scalp and the treatment oil contains strong and refreshing lemon scent.

Based on the furterer complexe 5 instructions, you are supposed to leave it in for 5 to 10 minutes. Although many people appear to leave the treatment oil for a LOT longer, 20-30 minutes to overnight (hoping the activation process lasts longer for hair follicle nourishment). Note that this treatment is a pre-shampoo stimulant and recommended for once or twice a week.
