Nanogen Hair Hydrator
Hair drenching hyaluronic acid gel adds visible density to fine hair, and provides the first step in your hair fibre application. Non-sticky and lightweight it leaves hair feeling supple, soft and moisturised after first use.
Hair Hydrator is incredible for longer hair as, unlike a lot of serums and creams, it doesn’t weigh long lengths down. Long, thin hair in particular can often benefit from added thickness at the roots to avoid being weighed down by the lengths. Our new brush-through fine hair expander does just that, by adding thickness to the roots all the way to the tips, keeping it looking healthy and full of life.
For short hairstyles, Hair Hydrator makes the perfect alternative to traditional waxes, pomades and gels, which may clog up the follicle and suffocate the root, preventing hair growth. Swap them out for our Hair Hydrator, which actively thickens and adds extra body without weighing the hair down and feeds it with the essential nutrients it needs to grow.
Nanogen Hair Hydrator creates the ideal canvas for Nanogen’s Keratin Hair Fibers, making it the perfect first step in your fibre application routine. Unique thickening polymers leave a strong positive charge on the hair, which binds even stronger to the negatively charged end of our fibres. Although the hair does hold a natural static charge, our Hair Hydrator unifies and strengthens this charge to prolong the bond between hair and fibre. The Hair Hydrator also helps ‘fluff up’ our fibres, as the positively charged hair strands repel the positive end of our dual charged fibres. This adds visible thickness and multidimensional volume that keeps your fibres from looking even better.
The nourishing trio of ingredients (hyaluronic acid, glycerin and panthenol) work in sync to inject long lasting hydration into each individual hair strand.
Hyaluronic acid - Unique ability to hold 1,000 times its own weight in water, hyaluronic acid brings intense hydration to the hair follicle and scalp leaving it visibly plumped, nourished and shiny.
Panthenol - Vitamin B5 derivative works as a humectant, attracting water from the air and utilising it to improve hair lustre, while nourishing the hair follicle. Hair is visibly moisturised and shiny, with less static and flyaways.
Glycerin - A clever humectant able to hold water greater than its own weight for superior moisture levels in the hair.
Green tea extract - Antioxidant powerhouse helps to protect hair follicles from the inflammatory effect of free radical damage, to soothe an irritated scalp.

STEP 2 - Run through the lengths of the hair.
STEP 3 - Wait for one minute, then brush through until smooth. For ultimate thickness blow dry your hair to amplify the results.
STEP 4 - Style hair as normal and apply Keratin Hair Fibres (sold separately).
How often should I use the Hair Hydrator?
We advise that you use Hair Hydrator on towel dried hair every time you cleanse with Nanogen’s thickening treatment shampoos.
How much product should I use?
For shorter hair types, start with adding a small amount (one pump) and build up to achieve the desired effect. For longer hair types we advise using one-two pumps and to also build up to achieve the desired effect.
Do I need to blow dry my hair after applying?
Hair Hydrator uses surface resins and thickening polymers to add physical thickness to each strand, without weighing it down. These thickening polymers leave each strand positively charged, resulting in the strands repelling away from each other and giving the appearance of volumised hair. To really super-charge these resins and polymers, try blow drying after application to evenly distribute them along the hair shaft and give long lasting results.
Is it safe to use on colour treated hair?
Yes, it’s suitable for coloured hair, however, for best colour maintenance we suggest using no more frequently than every other day.
Do your products contain parabens?
No, our entire product range is paraben free.
Do you test on animals?
Definitely not. Nanogen are passionately against animal testing. As part of the strict requirements of European regulation (2013), we don't test on animals and we won’t ask any other company to test on our behalf. We look forward to the day when animal testing is banned worldwide forever.
