Cocoa Locks Hair Shake review

Hello everyone,

I was kindly contacted by Cocoa Locks to review their hair shake. I’m not someone who usually does reviews on vitamins because I am no expert at all. However, this is a form of a drink and it’s got very positive reviews so I thought I’d give it a try.

First Impressions

When I first opened the packet, I was welcomed with the sweet aroma of chocolate. I was super excited and rightly so! I put two levelled teaspoons of the powder in a glass of milk (as instructed) and it tasted like a regular glass of milkshake. So far so good.

4 days later

I started to have a very itchy scalp and my skin was itching too and the only thing I’ve added to the diet is the hair shakes. Before I said yes to this product, I researched the ingredients and I’m not allergic to them so I was a bit confused. I looked at the NAT% and I realised that there are large amounts of the ingredients (listed below in the image).

Luckily, they are not harmful in any way because I researched the recommended dosage. But, my body didn’t take it well because I went from taking no Biotin to large amounts. Bear that in mind if you ever take this product.

The Solution

Due to how my skin and scalp reacted, I stopped taking it for a week so everything goes back to normal. I still use the product but only use 3/4 of a teaspoon and add another brand of normal milkshake powder so I can taste it in the milk. I’ve had no side effects and I think it works!

Overall thoughts

I don’t agree with the recommended dosage of two teaspoons but that is there so your hair grows fast. I’ve cut back on that but, I have still seen a difference in my hair. It isn’t growing as fast because of this, however, my hair is looking healthier. I’ll definitely show you the results after a month or so.

So I hope you all enjoyed this blog post and make sure to comment below if you liked this review! Have a lovely day everyone x

    Hi Najida,

    Thanks for your honest review. I actually purchased the 2 month program as I got it on offer. It’s been close to a month that I’m using the product and I noticed that I’m losing hair at the front. I have good length of hair and purchased the product for improving it’s quality . Do you suggest I continue using the product? It’s quite embarrassing to see the bald patch in front.

      Did you start losing hair before or after having the shake?? If it was before than continue using it if you have had no side effects. I have seen results on hair length but the results took a lot longer as I decreased my consumption. I hope I helped!

    I reviewed this too, I didn’t have the scalp issue but I hope it’s okay for you now! I think I’m just going to use it as a shake now as it tastes good. I don’t think I could keep up with one a day though.

      It’s ok now because I’ve halved the dosage but I’ve seen a slight difference now that I’m on the second month, but not as much as I thought it would xx

    A cute, to the point post Najida! Thank you for being so honest and you really do sound like you know your stuff with all the research you did! 😀 I love to maximise my hair and skin health but I’m quite skeptical of things, like vitamins and shakes, like this. It sounds like a really good concept though! Seen as biotin sounds like the golden one for hair health I’m definitely going to have a look and see if I can incorporate this into my diet with my food choices a bit more! Thanks for informing me so well lovely! 😀

    I never tried product like this actually. It’s such a fun way to help with hair growth, but not sure would I ever try it actually. Lovely photos btw. xx

      Thank you! I’d say the best way to do it is by going to the doctors and asking what vitamins will personally be beneficial to use. This is a fun way to help hair growth. Thanks for reading! x
