Do You Remember Surge 14 Hair Revitalizer?????

@SunySydeofLyfe Okay one more question :lachen:

When you first bought the Surge, do you remember what color the liquid was and if you had any floating herbs?

Compared to what it looks and smells like now?
I don’t remember seeing anything floating when I bought it. When I pulled this out my daughter (26) was like ewwww it’s going to be moldy....so I started pouring it down the drain and it looked perfectly normal (I contained myself and didn’t choke her). Let me get a glass and we can examine it together!

That’s what gave it that bang and people was experiencing quick hair growth because of all that stimulation..They need to bring the original back..

*I see Ginseng is listed in the top 10 of its ingredient list..I have been adding panex ginseng to my diy mixes and you really notice a difference on your roots..

Happy Hair Growing!
Are those the little vials?

Girl I just saved this in an email to myself. I may have to look for some of those ingredients to make my own concoction if I find them.
That’s what I’m doing now :lachen:
Heads up, some of them are ‘spensive and you’re gonna have to find a dupe for Ethylhexyl Stearate. Someone recommended http://chemistscorner.com/cosmeticsciencetalk/discussion/5260/alternative-to-ethylhexyl-stearate
C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate or Isopropyl Myristate. I vote for the C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate because you can use it as is. The isopropyl is not soluble in water, but it needs to be soluble in alcohol. Which one, idk. :lachen:
I found mostly everything on Amazon :laugh:

Still working my way down the list. I think I might have to substitute Trideceth-6, and Idopropynyl Butylcarbinate, and add my own fragrance

I tried to put it in order of how the ingredients are listed on the bottle, but Amazon lists the first item you put in cart as last, so read it from the bottom up. Whatever you see in the cart that’s not listed on the bottle is a substitute

Just follow along the ingredients and anything you see different is a substitute

Read each image from the bottom up. Blame Amazon for how they’re listed.
