According to a new report, five major online retailers including Amazon, Walmart, and eBay sold fake products that can be harmful to your health. Consumers should be wary of purchasing professional haircare products on sites like Amazon or eBay, the results of one investigation revealed that 20 of 47 products purchased from third-party sellers were counterfeit.
In each case, the seller had a customer rating of at least 90 percent, instilling misplaced trust that can hurt the end consumer. In addition, third-party sellers have a deal with Amazon in which the items are stored in a large warehouse, which can expose them to fluctuating temperatures; hence affecting the integrity of the product. Since products do have an expiration date (yes, that 3 year old hairspray under the sink in your bathroom is probably no good), a beauty product spending an extended period on the shelf in a warehouse can be transformed into something you would never want to put on your body. Looking for a few red flags will help you protect yourself from purchasing a fake product. Next time you’re about to purchase an item from your favorite online retailer, you might want to do a double take.
What is Virgin Hair Fertilizer?
Hair fertilizer is typically used as a scalp moisturizer, meant to be applied directly to the scalp to encourage hair growth. When you open a box of Virgin Hair Fertilizer, you’ll find a tube of somewhat thick hair cream. Some say it reminds them of petroleum jelly (probably because that’s one of its main ingredients), only it’s a little “lighter” than Vaseline.
It has a strong odor of menthol, peppermint oil, and other herbs, but if you leave it in overnight, the smell is better by morning. The peppermint oil is the most likely culprit in the reported “tingly” feeling on the scalp some curlies say they feel when using it. The use of peppermint essential oil can have some major benefits for the hair and scalp. The other active ingredients include lanolin, a popular cosmetic moisturizing ingredient found on the skin of sheep, and “fragrance.”
The use of peppermint oil is perhaps no surprise as the benefits of peppermint oil have been widely lauded. It contains plenty of nutrients and minerals that have antiseptic properties, which help to clean and moisturize the scalp and at the same time promote hair growth. The Original Virgin Hair Fertilizer helps to stimulate hair growth by getting the blood flow going. A daily application to the hair and scalp will condition the scalp, get rid of dandruff, and condition broken and dry hair.
How to Use Virgin Hair Fertilizer
You are supposed to take a dime size amount of the grease and massage into your scalp for a few minutes. You can do this every day or a few times a week, depending on the time you have available and your preference.
How To Spot Fake And Original Virgin Hair Fertilizer
Copy cats and outright fake products are littered all over the internet, it is important you take adequate precautions before buying Virgin Hair Fertilizer in order to avoid becoming the next victim of their scam. The original version always has fixed expiry period with no evidence of tampering. In addition, the minty smell from peppermint is really pronounced and the product is yellowish in color.
Here are 4 additional ways to protect yourself against this risk of buying a fake Virgin Hair Fertilizer:
Pricing: Sometimes, it’s too good to be true, check the Virgin Hair Fertilizer manufacturers or authorized dealer website for the retail price, use your discretion to add any possible expenses such as import charges, then add profit. With this estimation see if the price tallies. If way cheaper than that there is a huge red flag. Is it fake?, is it stolen goods? or the vendor is having a clear out sale.
Packaging or Print quality: If the packaging of a Virgin Hair Fertilizer looks a bit shoddy, the font looks pixelated, or any inconsistencies with the colors or image saturation (Too red or too blue) that’s another red flag. Check that the barcodes are consistent with the release notes on the producer’s product information page.
Product: The smell, the texture, the weight of a Virgin Hair Fertilizer is another tip. Some counterfeits are so explicit that the packaging looks just like the original, however the proof is in the pudding. When you buy Virgin Hair Fertilizer products open it on the spot, smell it, check if anything is off. Do a strand test. In the event it’s a fake product speak with the seller. Even if you can’t get a refund you are at least more knowledgeable and know where NOT to shop.
Probe (Research and Ask questions): There’s nothing wrong in asking the manufacturers about their licensed distributors, or even asking friends to have a look before you make a purchase. Ask a retailer about their distribution channels, probe their product knowledge, ask if they can guarantee lifespan or authenticity. SEE: Fake Eco Styler Gel
