They say that the hair is considered a person’s crowning glory, but this is not just said in the literal sense. Its cut and style frame the face, which can help enhance appearance, thereby increasing perceived beauty. More than the physical aspect, hair is also indicative of a person’s overall health and fitness condition. For example, dry or brittle hair is often related to a lack of iron, zinc, and/or vitamin C, while thinning hair can be interpreted as a sign for an increased release of adrenaline or, for women, a drop in oestrogen levels.
But what happens when the crown is no more? When, one by one, the follicles die out and come loose? Hair loss can be a result of problems in a person’s diet, but more often than not, it comes with age. Statistics say that 40% of men in the U.S. alone will have noticeable hair loss by age 35. It only gets worse as the years pile up. By the time they reach 80, 70% of American men will have evident bald spots.
Men are also at a – no pun intended – loss. There are 21 million women in the U.S. who are suffering from hair loss. On the other hand, there are 35 million men who are experiencing the same fate.
But there is hope for those who fear going egg-headed. With the technology today, there are many options – surgical implants and cosmetic surgery being the foremost. But treatment does not have to be expensive: several variants of hair regrowth shampoo are available in the market.
Packed with active ingredients like caffeine (which promotes hair growth by stimulating hair follicles) and niacin (which help keep cells healthy), these shampoos come at a price compared to the regular ones. But the benefits they pack are definitely worth the try.
However, one must be cautious when buying hair regrowth shampoo. Some contain doubtful ingredients, so it is best to do research before attempting to buy dozens of them. If the ingredients are not explained well, beware. It might be a fake ploy to get the desperate piling their shopping carts with these goods.
It is also better to buy hair regrowth shampoo that contains a good number of natural ingredients, compared to the artificial or chemical ones. Just as with food, organic is better than the manufactured ones. The body thrives on receiving nutrients from elements that are sourced from nature itself. Using artificial ones may upset the balance and actually cause more harm than good. Chemical ingredients may also contain substances that may cause itchiness on the scalp, which should be avoided at all costs because it may lead to serious skin diseases, such as scabies.
In buying, one must always remember: be vigilant. Promises that are too good to be true should be thrown out the window (or shopping cart, for that matter).
Though some say the results are disputable, there are hardly any scientific studies that point to the direction that using this kind of shampoo does not work. In other words, there is no harm in trying.
