Shampoo against hair loss

When you suffer from hair loss people can recommend you a shampoo against hair loss. But what makes a shampoo effective against hair loss and how effective is it? This article answers all the questions you might have about shampoos that they say to be effective against hair loss. Furthermore, we will discuss possible effects and how to use it and how often you need to use it for the best results.

How can shampoo help against hair loss

If a shampoo can help you with your hair loss depends on the condition. Your hair has three main stages in growth the anagen, catagen and telogen phase. Your hair grows in the anagen phase and falls off in the telogen phase. That is why you want to have more hairs in the anagen phase. If your hair follicle something your hair is attached to in the scalp breaks or is destroyed than there will not grow any new hair, not even with a stimulating shampoo or whatever product you use. This is often the case with alopecia universalis/totalis or after chemotherapy.

Fortunately this is not often the case. Androgenetic alopecia, alopecia areata, pulling of the hair or telogen effluvium or another condition are most of the time causing hair loss. When scalp conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis or dandruff cause your hair loss a shampoo can be effective according to Dr. Jerry Shapiro a dermatologist. If you lose hair due to inflammation the an shampoo can help to reduce that.

To stimulate hair growth it is important to use the shampoo properly. A shampoo can block the production of DHT, which helps with hair growth. If you use any kind of product for your hair loss make sure not to rinse it before the shampoo reaches the hair follicles. This can take a couple of minutes. If you wash it of immediately after putting it on your scalp. Than the effect will be minimum and there is a chance it doesn’t work properly.

What ingredients stimulate hair growth

Below you find a couple ingredients that have proven to be effective against hair loss:

  • Saw palmetto is an herbal treatment that helps against androgenic alopecia, or male-pattern hair loss. This common type of loss is often caused by the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. These tablets contain 160mg saw palmetto an amount that is completely safe and helps to stimulate hair growth.
  • Ketoconazole has anti-fungal properties that can counter hair thinning. There are other variants for ketoconazole such as piroctone olamine and climbazole. They have the similar effects, but less side-effects.
  • Minoxidil is often used as a treatment for thinning hair. But it can lead by some people to more hair loss, especially in high concentration. Studies have shown that Neoxyl a combination of Adenosine, Vividine ® and Aminexil ®, is more effective than Minoxidil on the growth of dermal papilla cells. This is a lotion that uses Neoxyl as key ingredient and can help reduce your hair loss.
