Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens)
Saw Palmetto is a tropical palm-like small plant mostly found in North America. Extract derived from its berries is highly rich in fatty acids.
Essential fatty acids are required for the proper function of every cell in the body, increasing the absorption of vitamins and minerals and properly nourishing hair, skin and nails. They must be obtained through the diet as the body does not make them naturally.
Saw Palmetto has been widely accepted as a very effective herbal treatment to reverse hair loss and treat conditions like alopecia. It is scientifically proven that excessive levels of DHT is the root cause of hair loss in adult men. DHT causes hair loss by attaching to hair follicles and shortening their growth phase. Over time, DHT causes hairs to become progressively weaker and finer until they simply stop growing altogether, becoming dormant. According to studies, saw palmetto’s extracts work to inhibit DHT in the scalp thus helping control hair loss and reviving hair follicles. In this way, hair follicles are strengthened, the scalp is less sensitive to stress and irritation and the hair itself improves in body and shine.
External application of saw palmetto oil is easily absorbed by the skin. Hence massaging the scalp with the oil and leaving it on for at least an hour (or overnight) aids in the best results due to better absorption.
Pumpkin Seed Oil (Cucurbita pepo)
Pumpkin is a plant, and its extracted oil, rich in fatty acids, is used for multiple health purposes. Studies show that Pumpkin Seed oil also inhibits the enzyme in the body (5-alpha reductase) that converts testosterone into DHT. DHT is found in the hair follicles of the scalp and causes these follicles to shrink.
Pumpkin Seed contains the compounds delta-7-sterine and beta-sitosterol that compete with and lower the level of DHT in the follicles. Furthermore, studies have demonstrated the synergistic benefits of combining Pumpkin Seed with Saw Palmetto for increased efficacy.
Castor Seed Oil (Ricinus communis)
Castor Seed contains anti-fungal properties and anti-bacterial acids that can help prevent and treat scalp infections that may cause hair loss over time.
High quantities of Vitamin E and Omega-9 fatty acids found in castor oil nourishes both the scalp and hair, combating hair loss, stimulating hair growth, treating scalp infection, reducing split ends and breakage, nourishing and moisturizing the hair, soothing dry scalp and providing thickness to the hair.
Massaging the scalp with castor oil can help improve blood circulation to the follicles and encourage their own natural cycle. By encouraging the follicles, they will produce more hair and many have found that using castor oil can promote darker hair growth in place of previously grey hairs.
Rosemary, Lavender and Cedarwood extract
Dermatologists at Aberdeen Infirmary in Scotland gave an essential oil blend containing Rosemary, Lavender and Cedarwood to participants suffering from alopecia areata and asked them to rub it into their scalps daily. After 7 months, almost half regrew as much as 50% of their hair, while a few regrew almost all of their hair back. The study was reported in the Nov/Dec 1999 issue of Health magazine.
Cedarwood oil is known for its anti-inflammatory benefits, regularizing the skins sebum production, assisting with seborrhea or seborrheic eczema where sebum production is increased causing infection in the epidermal cells.
Rosemary essential oil is known for its antimicrobial properties, and is used for a variety of skin infections including eczema.
Lavender essential oil’s anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties work for the health of the scalp and assist follicles with hair growth.
Boasting a long rich history in medicine, this organic alcohol-free extract is rich in vitamins,
minerals (magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron), proteins, and amino acids which helps combat hair loss while promoting
hair regrowth. Properties such as silica and sulfur increase shine of the hair strand and health of the root.
Best known for its soothing, anti-inflammatory ability, stinging nettle works to protect the scalp cells from
damaging foreign particles such as free radicals, DHT and bacteria. Studies show that results to hair regrowth are
intensified when used in conjunction with saw palmetto extract.
The principal ingredient, Menthol, is responsible for its beneficial effects of anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal action – all of which aid in the health of the scalp. Japanese Peppermint has the highest concentration of Menthol (around 80%), increasing its effectiveness. Peppermint also improves blood circulation to the follicles; important for prevention of DHT conversion from testosterone. It should be noted that Peppermint oil is stimulating and may interfere with sleeping.
