René Furterer Triphasic Collection for Reactional Thinning Hair

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

During the earlier part of the pandemic from the pre-vaccine times to some of the darkest and scariest months, where the infection rates were out of control in Los Angeles County, I was quite stressed by what was happening in such close proximity to me. It was at this time that I started noticing that I was shedding more hair than usual, and I talked with several friends who said that they were experiencing the same thing. I went to my doctor for my annual checkup and said that I noticed more hair in the drain than usual after I washed my hair and wondered if it was a stress reaction, or if it was a symptom of an underlying condition that was just now manifesting itself. After a few tests confirmed that I was fine, it was concluded that it was simply a function of the stress associated living in the California epicenter of a frightening global pandemic.

A friend who experienced precisely the same thing texted me pictures of these products, and simply said, "buy these now, they work"– so I did just that. They had been recommended to her by her hairdresser who emphatically told her not to bother with anything else.

Now, I should preface this by stating that there is no genetic predisposition to hair loss in my family, and that what happened to me was very clearly a stress response to a very frightening time, and that between using this system and being under considerably less stress once I was fully vaccinated, my hair returned to its normal shedding. The René Furterer Triphasic Reactional Collection features 100% drug-free products that are formulated to "address the underlying causes of sudden, temporary thinning hair." This system is intended for people experiencing temporary hair thinning or added shedding due to stress, dietary imbalances or hormonal changes– not hereditary hair loss.
TRIPHASIC REACTIONAL (for sudden, temporary thinning hair): "Sudden and temporary hair thinning can be caused by stress, dietary imbalance, post-pregnancy hormonal changes and other factors. Triphasic Reactional Concentrated Serum helps encourage stronger, healthier-looking hair by maximizing the scalp’s nutrient intake, in turn creating an optimal environment for the hair.
TRIPHASIC PROGRESSIVE (for hereditary, hormonal thinning hair): "Hereditary, hormonal hair thinning often takes up to six months to become noticeable, and is generally genetically predetermined. This type of hair thinning usually follows a pattern, which is different in women and men. Women tend to experience a widening of the part and thinning patches, while men see thinning along the hairline and on the crown of the head."

I can't tell you how the specific TRIPHASIC PROGRESSIVE Collection works for hereditary hair loss since it neither runs in my family, nor have I ever experienced it, but the TRIPHASIC REACTIONAL Collection worked miracles on my stress-induced shedding.
René Furterer Triphasic Shampoo ($12.00-$64.00 for 1.6 oz to 20.2 oz. from René Furterer, Dermstore, LovelySkin and SkinStore): This non-stripping shampoo gently cleans the hair and scalp, and it is formulated to treat the hair follicles to encourage hair growth. Hair is left manageable and looks more full and healthy.
According to René Furterer.

The perfect complement to any René Furterer thinning hair treatment, this invigorating frequent-use shampoo is formulated to fortify the hair’s strength, resilience and promote the appearance of healthy-looking hair.


  • Complements any Rene Furterer thinning hair treatment.
  • Addresses the factors that contribute to progressive and reactional hair thinning in men and women for visibly thicker, denser more resilient hair.
  • ATP Intensif provides energy to the hair follicles.
  • Natural Pfaffia extract helps maximize the supply of nutrients available to the scalp.
  • Encapsulated essential oils of Orange, Lavender and Rosemary help purify the scalp and promote microcirculation when massaged in.

René Furterer Triphasic Texturizing Conditioner ($12.00-$34.00 for 1 oz. to 5 oz. from René FurtererDermstore, LovelySkin and SkinStore): This is a lightweight, and yet very hydrating, conditioner that makes hair manageable, frizz-free and makes hair look thicker, healthier and more shiny. It is formulated to stimulate hair follicles, and I noticed an immediate difference in the way my hair looked and felt when I was using this.
According to René Furterer,

This lightweight conditioner is the perfect complement to thinning hair regimens. Enriched with texturizing wheat proteins, this formula strengthens the structure of the hair while visibly increasing volume, leaving strands perfectly detangled, soft and shiny.

René Furterer Triphasic Reactional Concentrated Serum ($74.00 for 12 vials x 0.16oz from René FurtererDermstore, LovelySkin and SkinStore): This serum is pure magic, and while it is recommended to use it along with their shampoo and conditioner, this stand-alone miracle-worker could be used on its own. I used it as directed, and I noticed a considerable difference in my hair. I was shedding far fewer hairs daily, and my hair looked denser, healthier and fuller after use. This is a must-have for me, if I find myself stressed out enough to experience reactional hair shedding again in the future.

Overall Assessment: These three products are the only things that worked when the existential threat of Covid-19, which was pounding on my door in Los Angeles during the worst parts of the pandemic, created so much stress that I was shedding far more hair than I normally would have. My friend was right to recommend these products to me, just as her hairdresser was right to recommend them to her. And for both of us, our stress-induced hair loss stopped altogether. Getting vaccinated definitely helped reduce the stress as well, but there is no question that these products returned my hair back to normal. A+

  1. What a fantastic system. I used to use a luxury brand called J.F Lazartigue that did wonders for thinning hair and hair loss. I've been under a severe amount of stress lately which caused some deficiencies for me and halted my gym progress. Thankfully it did not effect my hair, but i cant say the symptoms i dealt with were any easier to swallow.

    1. It really is, Claudia! I was so stressed out at that time, and the existential crisis really took a toll on me. I had never experienced anything like this before, and I am grateful that this really helped return my hair back to normal! I it great to know that J.F. Lazartigue worked when this happened to you. I will definitely purchase these products again, if I ever need them in the future, but I hope that I won't! I am so sorry to hear that you are under a severe amount of stress lately, and that it is taking a toll on you. I hope that you are able to get it resolved quickly. Stress can wreak havoc on the mind and body, and the severity can be catastrophic! I hope that you are able to find a solution, and that you can return to a less stressed space! <3

  2. My mom is starting to have this issue. I’m sharing this with her. Thank you!
    Michelle | con limón, please

    1. Hi Michelle, If your mom has. been experiencing what I did (stress-induced hair shedding/thinning), then I highly recommend the Reactional Collection, it really worked for me and my friend!

  3. I have reactional hair loss so it's great to learn they have a line for this. Marcia

    1. I highly recommend these products for reactional hair loss. I am so glad that my friend told me to buy these because they really worked for her, and thankfully they did for me as well. Stress really wreaks havoc on our bodies, and the stress of the pandemic really underscored that point to me, personally! I will definitely buy these again, if I ever experience reactional hair thinning again!
