LA FUE Hair New York

The anti-hair loss shampoo industry is big business, with a market valued at around $3 billion dollars. Many of these products claim to prevent hair loss and promote hair growth, while improving the health of the hair and scalp.

Containing ingredients like vitamins, caffeine, ketoconazole, or saw palmetto, these shampoos often promise miraculous results: but do they actually work? The truth about hair growth shampoo is that it may be helpful, but probably not as a miracle cure for hair loss.

Does Hair Loss Shampoo Work?

Many “hair loss” shampoos over-promise and under-deliver. Even theoretically useful products like DHT blocking shampoo don’t tend to stay on the scalp long enough to have a significant impact. Most benefits simply wash away down the drain.

Shampoo cannot regrow lost hair… but it can be a helpful component of comprehensive hair loss treatment. In fact, the right shampoo can be very helpful in treating the scalp microbiome, creating the best possible conditions for hair to grow. It can also improve the health and appearance of your existing hair.

For those with severe dandruff or an inflammatory scalp condition (such as psoriasis), there are prescription shampoos that may heal the scalp enough to allow hair to regrow.

Which Shampoo Is Best for Hair Loss?

We offer Nutrafol® shampoo and conditioner to improve your hair’s volume, strength, and texture. Nutrafol® products regulate oil production, wash away impurities, and nourish hair without stripping the scalp. We highly recommend Nutrafol®, because the right shampoo and conditioner are an important part of your hair restoration plan.

If you are experiencing hair loss, choose your shampoo carefully. The best shampoo for hair loss is one that improves the health of your scalp and allows for healthy hair growth. Look for haircare products that are natural, gentle, and unscented. Choose a shampoo free from harmful chemicals and follicle-clogging residue. Take time to read the label and avoid damaging ingredients that may actually cause new or worsening hair loss.

Which Ingredients in Shampoo Cause Hair Loss?

When selecting a shampoo, avoid red-flag ingredients that can damage your hair and scalp. These include formaldehyde-emitting preservatives like diazolidinyl urea and DMDM hydantoin; fragrances; parabens; silicone (dimethicone), and sulfates. These may cause scalp irritation, allergic reactions, stripped hair, or clogged follicles – all of which can disrupt hair growth or even lead to increased hair loss.

Dry shampoos have additional ingredients that are problematic for those with thinning hair. They often contain alcohol and liquid petroleum (like propane or butane) as spray propellants… which dry and damage the hair and scalp. They also often contain talc which clogs follicles and accumulates on the hair shaft. Talc also aggravates respiratory illnesses and is a known carcinogen.
