Should You Try a Hair Growth Shampoo?

What you need to know before you buy.

With hair loss being such a common concern amongst men and women, there has been a lot of buzz about products that are effective at regrowing hair. Lately we’ve been hearing a lot about hair growth shampoo. The question is: Is it worth using, and who should be using this kind of product on their hair?

A shampoo for hair growth can also be used by those that are seeking longer hair. For those looking for something to treat a condition, we know many of you rather go to Google to self-diagnose and then use any information you come across to help you search for the right products to use.

However, we have a couple of pointers we’d like to share with you before you spend hours researching, or even end up spending every last cent in your bank account on a shampoo for hair growth that may or may not work for you! Read on for our expert take:

Hair Growth Shampoo: What to Know Before You Buy

Will a hair growth shampoo aid in new growth?

The first thing that comes to mind is coming to terms with just how effective a hair growth shampoo is. First thing to remember is that shampoos are rinsed out. This means it may be better to have some sort of topical treatment that stays on your scalp. But whether a growth or regrowth shampoo is effective or not lies within its formula: Does it contain ingredients that have been clinically proven to grow hair or speed up the growing process? This is something to keep in mind.

You may come across regrowth hair care lines that include a shampoo, conditioner and a treatment. Our advice: Use all three to see the best results. More than likely the system was formulated to be used together. If you use one without the other, you may not get the experience or results you hoped for.

Before shopping for a hair growth shampoo to treat hair loss, we highly recommend talking to your dermatologist. If the cause of your hair fall cannot be treated by a hair regrowth shampoo, then your dermatologist will prescribe you with the best options. This will also save you a lot of money and perhaps further hair damage in the long run.

If you want to take matters into your own hands, be sure to do thorough research. Look for shampoo brands that you trust and are familiar with. In the event you come across a new brand, check to see if it is backed by a dermatologist, and read customer reviews and look for progress pictures. Hair loss and hair fall is a serious matter that shouldn’t be played around with.

Treating hair fall associated with dandruff

Prevent hair fall due to dandruff by treating your hair with an anti-dandruff shampoo. When combing your hair with dandruff, oftentimes the flakes can come off along with strands of hair from the root. You can prevent this by treating your scalp with an anti-dandruff shampoo like Dove DermaCare Scalp Invigorating Mint Anti-Dandruff 2-In-1 Shampoo & Conditioner. Mint is also said to help stimulate the scalp follicle, which may help with hair growth.
