We’ve already talked a great deal about Hair Loss in general, now let’s come to the product usage side of things when it comes to Hair Loss, as this is something we often overlook.
Some common shampoo ingredients like sodium lauryl sulphate aggravate the problem of hair loss. Also, ingredients like caffeine and mint oil promote healthy hair growth. This gives you just a slight idea, now let us dive a bit deep on what ingredients to look for while picking a shampoo and what ingredients to avoid.
How Does a Shampoo That is Made for Hair-Loss Work?
Let’s get this fact out, most commercial shampoos DO NOT help with hair loss, in fact, some even contain ingredients that make hair thinning worse. So by switching to a shampoo that’s exclusively designed to help you fight hair loss not only are you avoiding damaging ingredients but you are promoting optimal hair growth and scalp health.
The best shampoos that are promoted to fight hair loss always contain ingredients that improve the overall hair volume, moisturize the hair, and boost the circulation to hair follicles.
Ingredients to Look Out for in Your Ant-Hair Loss Shampoo
Rosemary oil is at times as effective as growth treatment via minoxidil! Also, It generally doesn’t have any side effects.
Breakage caused by brittle hair can contribute to hair thinning. Look for a shampoo that contains hydrolyzed proteins to strengthen the exterior of the hair. Tiny proteins like them penetrate the hair shaft and rebuild hair structures that have been damaged over time.
Aloe Vera Extract
Many anti-hair loss shampoos contain aloe vera extract. This is for a good reason as Aloe Vera traditionally has been used to treat hair loss. Aloe Vera is rich in Vitamin A, C, and E, all of which make cells healthy and prevent radical damage.
Ingredients to Avoid in Your Ant-Hair Loss Shampoo
Shampoo manufacturers around the world often add a group of. preservatives called parabens to their formulations to extend the shelf life of the product that they’ve produced. Parabens can irritate the scalp and cause allergic reactions.
Sodium Lauryl Sulphate or SLS
Shampoos are often formulated with SLS, a harsh chemical surfactant that strips the hair and scalp of its natural protective oils. This can leave you with parched, brittle hair and an overall itchy scalp.
SLS also irritates your scalp’s skin cells just like Parabens and this can interfere with the hair growth. Skip this ingredient at all costs when looking for a shampoo designed for hair loss.
Methylchloroisothiazolinone or MCI
MCI is a preservative that protects beauty products against the growth of yeast, fungi, and bacteria. MCI has often been linked to allergic reactions. Make sure to check the label for this ingredient before purchasing your shampoo.
How to Choose A Shampoo That Suits You & Fights Hair Loss
Always read the ingredients before making the purchase, today we’ve taught you a great deal about them! Never fall for marketing gimmicks. Science cannot be replaced with marketing campaigns that are doing well. Always stick with effective and proven ingredients, if a shampoo is advertising some new ingredient, then always make sure to check the scientific properties of the ingredient online.
