The complete range of Dr. Vanita Rattan Hair Range products, for thinning & brittle hair (5 products in total). Suitable for colour dyed hair.
Why is it good for people of colour?
For people of colour, we don’t want to dry or irritate the skin, which includes the skin on your scalp.
A dry, irritated scalp because of sub-optimal haircare is more likely to lead to hair loss, thinning, and strand fragility.
As with all Dr Vanita Rattan's products, this hair range is formulated with these principles in mind, to use ingredients less likely to harm sensitive skin of colour, whilst packing a powerful punch of active ingredients proven to improve skin and hair health & appearance.
NO DENATURED ALCOHOL
NO ESSENTIAL OILS
Who is this product for?
For women & men, age 20+ with thinning, brittle hair from ageing and damage over time.
For normal & dry, thinning hair. Types 1a - 4c hair.
Not ideal for persons with an oily scalp. However, it is suitable if the scalp only becomes greasy after 1-2 days.
May help with moderate dandruff but not if severe.
Not for persons with a history of reactions to topical skin/hair products or overly dry/sensitive/damaged skin.
What is happening to your hair with age?
In females, by the mid-30s, there is a reduction in oestrogen levels. Oestrogen protects the hair root from the hormone testosterone.
This process speeds up at menopause and 40% of those by 70 years of age have female pattern hair loss.
The increased testosterone effect leads to thin, brittle hair, with premature hair loss.
To slow this process, you need to:
- Stimulate hair follicles.
- Improve the health of the scalp so strong, vibrant hair can grow.
- Supply the scalp with essential nutrients.
- Strengthen current hair to prevent breakage.
Please see individual hair range products for full ingredients and key ingredient functions.

Common Product FAQs
1. How long do Dr. V Hair Range products last for?
This will vary for each product and person, however, if usage guidelines are followed, the average duration may be 6-12 weeks approx.
2. Is the Hair Range suitable for pregnancy & breastfeeding?
3a. Is the Hair Range suitable for an oily scalp?
If moderately oily you can try the range, but avoid if very oily i.e. gets greasy within 24 hours of washing.
3b. Is the Hair Range suitable for dandruff?
The hair range may help with moderate dandruff, but it is not sufficient for severe dandruff.
3c. Is the Hair Range suitable for dry/itchy scalp?
The Anagen Boost Hair Tonic is not suitable in this case, but the other Hair Range products are.
3d. Is the Hair Range suitable for colour dyed / bleached hair?
Yes, and it would be actively beneficial for this, to renourish and rebuild the hair strand damaged by the above.
3e. Is the Hair Range suitable for hair that is not thinning or brittle?
Yes, it can be used on all hair types except for for where the scalp gets greasy easily (see 3a above).
4a. Can you use the Hair Range whilst using other Dr. V or 3rd Party skin products on the face / body.
4b. Can you mix & match the Hair Range with 3rd party haircare products?
You would not need to use any other cosmetic treatment products on the scalp/hair, as the Dr. V Hair Range has all the active ingredients you need.
If prescribed scalp medications are being used, please wait until finished before starting/resuming Dr. V Hair Range.
5. Can I use the Hair Range whilst on Isotretinoin/Roaccutane?
No, please wait until 6 months after completion to use Dr. V Hair Range.
6. Can I apply Hair Range products during the day?
Yes the product range is safe to wear during the day (as opposed to hyperpigmentation kits, which are not).
7. Which products go on the scalp and which on the whole hair strand?
SCALP: Shampoo*, Tonic.
*The Shampoo is for direct application to the scalp, not for all of the hair strand. The reason we suggest this is to not strip the hair of moisture; surfactants in the shampoo remove grime & dirt, but on the hair strand this can be drying (all shampoos).
8. Why does the range contain sulfates/sulphates (same)?
We have no general concerns with sulfates (nor is there sufficient evidence to support this), it depends on the type and how they are used.
For example, Sodium Laureth Sulfate is used safely and effectively in our Shampoo as an excellent cleaning agent, which helps to clear the scalp of grime to allow hair to grow. This is substantially different from Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, which we do not recommend.
9. How long does it take to see results?
The timeline below may be broadly applicable to most users:
Immediately (1-3 uses): Hair is easier to detangle, feels smoother/silkier and looks shinier.
After 4 weeks: hair feels thicker, split ends reduced, frizz reduced.
For enhanced benefits, particularly hair length, strength and new growth, combine with Dr. V Collagen Boost and use consistently.

I am a trained Human Resource Professional with an MBA in Human Resource Management-Training and Development and have amassed fifteen (15) years corporate experience in that discipline.
I decided to embark on a new career path which led me to be involved in my family's Physiotherapy Clinic. During that period I became very aware of the multi-faceted world of wellness. I settled into the area of skin care and began immersing myself in the vast amounts of available knowledge. Some recommendations therein led me to experiment with my teenage daughter and myself as we both had skin challenges. I can say now that I am beginning to see the best skin of my life and regret not knowing about the regimen earlier.
I am the proud promoter of products and treatments which ensure minimum irritation but maximum efficacy.
The love of skincare has prompted the birth of the business Skincare Approved by G, to share and promote with those persons who believe in following a similar skincare philosophy.
Thank you for allowing me to take you on this journey.
