Anti-Hair Loss Shampoos. What Is The Best For You?

Mar 8, 2008
Anti-Hair Loss Shampoos. Should I try them? One easy-to-try option is a shampoo specifically designed to increase the health of existing hair and to reduce the rate of hair loss in both men and women. There are several sources to investigate specific shampoos. Research studies can be accessed to determine the effectiveness of many of these products. Good professional sources include dermatologists and licensed cosmeticians who see hair loss conditions frequently and have had the opportunity to observe the effectiveness of a variety of shampoos.

A "Internet" search will provide hundreds of products, complete with testimonies and research study results. It's easy to get confused when investigating the hundreds of shampoos available. With some background knowledge of what has shown to be effective in larger, previous studies, however, you can make more intelligent choices about the shampoos you choose for experimentation. And that is the great thing about shampoos - they are relatively inexpensive in this maze of hair loss/regrowth methods, so you can try lots of them without breaking your budget!

Surfactants Shampoos. People feel good when their shampoos lather up nicely. Lather, however, is just for psychological effect. Somehow we believe that the more lather a shampoo produces, the cleaner our hair must be getting. Hogwash! The ingredient that causes lather is call a surfactant and does not have cleaning properties. Other ingredients in shampoos actually do the cleaning. Surfactants are, however, pretty harsh, and, for someone who is experiencing more-than-normal hair loss, surfactants should be avoided. There are lots of shampoos out there without it.

Herbal Ingredients Shampoos. The most notable herb with some success in hair loss difficulty is Saw Palmetto. Shampoos with this ingredient are certainly worth a try. Saw Palmetto seems to inhibit the production of DHT in men, for example, and DHT causes hair follicles to shrink and close up.

Nettle and bay have also been helpful to some people. Shampoos which include these might help you too. Not alot of research has been done as of yet. They are affordable.

Essential Oils Shampoos. These oils are concentrated ones which come from plants such as lavender. From ancient times, these have been used to stimulate healthy hair and to decrease the rate of hair loss. We know that we have much to learn from early medicine men and healers. Perhaps this is another example. Very affordable.

Tea Tree Oil. Many swear by this ingredient, and there are several brands of this on the market. So popular are these shampoos, you can find them at most any drug store as well as health product retailers. As a side benefit tea tree oil has also been found to be effective in the prevention of head lice infestations. Nice option.

There are no definitive studies to show that shampoos can actually result in regrowth of hair that is caused by what we all "permanent" conditions, largely the result of heredity and hormones. However, early prevention is important, and experimenting with shampoos during these early stages may provide invaluable help in reducing the rate of hair loss.
