Vitamin shampoo for hair loss is considered a supplement to a complete hair loss regimen. When used in combination with hair vitamins, topical sprays containing Trichogen or Minoxidil, vitamin-enriched shampoos provide a bit of “umbrella insurance” you are doing everything possible to stop loss or thinning.
While many shampoos contain some level of nutrients, vitamin shampoos formulated for hair loss focus on those that have a direct impact on healthy growth – namely Vitamin B-12, Vitamin E – and the host of amino acids and minerals shown to either arrest shedding or increase growth.
These cleansers are commonly formulated by researchers and manufacturers to topically apply nutrients and vitamins to help restore and encourage regrowth and to improve scalp and follicle health.
Increased Nutrition and Circulation for Healthy Hair
Many hair problems result from poor microcirculation, clogged follicle pores and lack of nutrition that can lead to stressed hair and a reduction of the anagen hair growth phase. Sebum (hair oil) plugs can reduce nutrient delivery to the root and can harbor and facilitate bacteria and fungus.
Development of fungus can produce scalp bumps, dermatitis and scalp psoriasis, all of which can discourage healthy hair growth, and in some cases, produce hair loss.
Addressing Hair Loss Causes
Follicle cells require nutrition and hydration to form properly and to maintain their health. Similar to other cells in the body, moisture facilitates elasticity, increase in collagen and elastin fibers and promotes growth and “cellular turnover”. Hair follicles are made up of proteins and amino acids which require nutrition.
Vitamin shampoo helps to gently clean oil and dirt, but most importantly delivers vitamins and minerals directly to the shaft and root for direct infusion of nutrition. While not a panacea for a proper and balanced diet, vitamin shampoo is often rich in B-complex vitamins, Omega 3, 6 and 9and essential fatty acids necessary for growth.
Secondly, cleanliness is needed as well. Many inexpensive shampoos can contain harsh surfactants (cleaning agents and ingredients) to give you a “squeaky clean” feel to your hair. While this may be acceptable to many, those experiencing hair loss or slow growth may need a surfactant that is gentle on the scalp and hair. Additionally, moisture is a key component of health, pliability and faster growing hair. Similar to skin cells, follicles grow better and “behave” with proper moisture. Weak, brittle and dry hair can lead to breaking, frizz and lack the hydration necessary to fight environmental or heat damage.
A vitamin shampoo for hair growth can provide you with a “boost” in hair nutrition while adding moisture and body. Improved nutrition delivery from gentle, deep cleaning increases you hair’s health without irritation or inflammation that can lead to scalp problems.
If you’re experiencing slow growth, hair loss or have found your hair is thinning and lacks body and volume, consider a shampoo designed for health and growth.
