Finding an icky ball of hair caught in the shower drain, day after day, is certainly cause for concern. When it seems like there are more strands tangled in your brush than on your head, it’s time to go into full-blown panic mode, right?
No, not anymore. The wonders of scientific research and development have yielded us an easy and effective way to regrow and slow down hair loss in the shower. There are two very effective hair regrowth shampoos that you should consider if you are losing your locks. They have distinctly different active to ingredients to stimulate new growth and keep the hair you have. To help you determine which one might be right for you, read on.
Hair Today Gone Tomorrow
The most common cause of bald spots is male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) but women can be afflicted with it, too. An imbalance of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) binds to scalp follicle receptors, causing them to shrink and shed the strand before it can grow to maturity. I know, dy-what? It’s a chemical and hormonal imbalance that you don’t need to be able to pronounce, but understand if you are losing your hair.
There are other things that cause you to lose your locks, like, thyroid disorders, scalp infections, hormonal changes due to pregnancy, or certain medications. It is very important that you educate yourself about hair thinning and consult with your doctor before you start any hair loss treatments at home.
Ultrax Labs Hair Surge Caffeine Hair Growth Stimulating Shampoo
This hair regrowth shampoo is the latest and greatest science has to offer with two important active ingredients:
- Ketoconazole (0.2%) – a synthetic anti-fungal medicine that blocks DHT (the make-you-bald bad guy), which allows the hair follicles to recover and begin growing hair again.
- Caffeine Compounds – caffeine has the ability to interact with, and actually manipulate follicle behavior, meaning it stimulates new growth
- Saw Palmetto – believed to block the enzyme that allows testosterone to be converted to DHT.
Does this hair regrowth shampoo really work? According to the many satisfied consumers it can and does! The ketoconazole blocks the production of DHT, while caffeine and saw palmetto assist. Clinical studies on the effectiveness of caffeine in manipulating follicle behavior have shown it capable of stimulating new growth. You can’t drink your way to a long and lush mane, but applying the caffeine and other compounds in the shower via Ultrax hair regrowth shampoo for about two minutes can significantly halt hair thinning & loss.
Users of Ultrax Labs hair loss shampoo overwhelmingly gave it their seal of approval. A common theme among reviewers is that it works very quickly makes hair thicker (even after one use, one reviewer said) and significantly regrew hair and slowed further shedding.
There are some side effects you need to be aware of with Ultrax. Ketoconazole is a sulfite, and some people may be allergic to it. Common side effects include blistering skin, a difference in hair texture, dry skin and itchy irritation. If you have sensitive skin this might not be the right shampoo for you.
Phytoworx Organic Hair Loss Shampoo
If you loathe becoming chemically dependent to reverse baldness, then Phytoworx is the way to go. This organic shampoo for growing hair harnesses the power of nature in the form of plant stem cells; specifically, from a tree native to Switzerland known as, Malus Domestica. Here’s what you get:
- Plant Stem Cells – capable of boosting the production of human stem cells and helps protect them to slow hair fall (No way, right? Keep reading)
- Essential oils – tea tree, peppermint, eucalyptus and rosemary for conditioning and nourishing strands and scalp
- No sulfites or harsh chemicals of any kind
The science is mixed as to whether this stem cell rich hair loss shampoo can prevent hair fall, but there are some pretty extensive studies being done about it’s effectiveness that are worth looking into.
The most compelling reason to give Phytoworx a try is users only have good things to say about it. In fact, I couldn’t find a single reviewer who said the shampoo did not help them regrow hair and make their hair fuller, softer and more manageable. Because it does not have a lot of synthetic chemicals, there are minimal side effects and risks associated with using it.
So even if you are feeling as torn about the money for this hair growth shampoo as scientists are about the viability of stem cell science for that purpose, you have to lend some weight to such glowing reviews. If people are spending $50 on a bottle of shampoo that did not help them restore their ‘do, you can bet they would rant about that.
Hairs To You
In the end, choosing a shampoo for growing hair comes down to personal preference. If you have sensitive skin or are worried about the side effects of ketoconazole (irritation, itching) in the Ultrax hair growth shampoo, then going organic could be the best method of treatment for you.
Phytoworx Organic is sulfate free, combines natural organic compounds and has no known side effects. There is not as much science out there to support claims that apple tree stem cells from a tree can regrow hair, but the people that matter the most, consumers, are spreading the good word that it is a hair thickening shampoo that promotes regrowth.
Regardless of what hair thinning treatment you try, taking good care of your scalp inside and out can significantly improve the odds that a prescription or hair loss shampoo will be more effective. Cleaning up your diet and using Moroccan argan oil to keep your hair in tip-top condition, especially new growth, will aid you on your quest for a full head of hair.
