The Anti Hair Loss Shampoo industry is probably one of the most scammy industry on the planet. It contains many false advertised product claiming to stop balding when, in reality, most of them do not. Although, that does not mean that ALL anti hair loss shampoo don’t work. Some of them can do a really great job in maintaining your hair and making it thicker. It could even potentially stop thinning hair!
Although, shampoos that DO work in slowing genetic hair loss (pattern baldness) must have an ingredient called “Ketoconazole” in it. Otherwise, there is very high chances that it won’t do a good job. Ketoconazole is actually the only clinically proven substance that can topically block the production of DHT in the scalp. In most cases, it therefore slows down the thinning process. Both men and women can use these products. Here are some of the best anti hair loss shampoos on the market containing Ketoconazole:
Nizoral was originally created to treat dandruff using Ketoconazole. Although, the shampoo was later shown to be able to halt hair loss by blocking DHT in the scalp. It contains 1% Ketoconazole and there also exists a 2% Ketoconazole Nizoral formula (highest concentration of Ketoconazole on the market). However, using the 2% version more than 2 times per week can lead to irritations on the scalp. It also contains sulfate (like most shampoos in the market) which can cause dryness of the scalp. Nonetheless, it is still a good shampoo that could possibly stop the thinning process. It is recommended to start with the Nizoral 1% to treat hair loss.
In contrary to other shampoos, Regenepure contains no sulfate, no paraben and no harsh chemicals. This 1% Ketoconazole shampoo actually contains Aloe Vera which helps keeping the scalp healthy instead of drying it. This ingredient cancels the negative effects that Ketoconazole might have. There are 2 types of Regenepure shampoos: Regenepure DR and Regenepure NT.
Regenpure DR contains, as main ingredients, Ketoconazole, Saw Palmetto, Emu Oil, Niacin, Vitamin B3, Caffeine, Vitamin B6, L-Pathenol, Linolenic Acid, Jojoba Oil and Zinc Oxide. While Ketoconazole removes DHT from the scalp, caffeine stimulates the growth of hair and maybe even NEW growth. The key ingredients in Regenepure NT are Lecithin, Saw Palmetto, Emu Oil, Niacin Vitamin B3, Caffeine, Vitamin B6, L-Pathenol, Linolenic Acid, Equisetum Arvense and Glycerin B., which gently help stimulate, even more, the production of hair in the follicles and restore the health of the scalp.
Lipogaine Big 3 Shampoo:
Containing no harsh chemicals, this Lipogaine shampoo is filled with many hair growth promoting ingredients such as Ketoconazole, biotin, castor oil, niacin, copper tripeptides and emu oil which are enough to create a good environment for hair to flourish. Of course used topically, Lipogaine nourishes the hair follicles with the nutrients needed to produce optimal hair growth. That means it combats hair thinning by reversing the process to make them thicker.
Regenepure DR vs Lipogaine Big 3:
In general, both of these shampoos are very effective to slow down hair loss, since they both contain the same concentration of Ketoconazole (1%). Being the main ingredient needed to block DHT at the scalp topically, this makes the shampoos basically as effective. One major is that none of them contain any chemicals that could cause inflammation and further hair loss.
What differs the two products is the rest of the ingredients included inside of them as well. Regenepure DR seems to have more active ingredients to stop baldness. Therefore, it really depends on the individual’s remark and opinion of the effect each one has on his or her hair. Some have noticed that these solutions tend to leave the hair out of volume, but using a conditioner afterwards should cancel that minor problem.
Selling for around the same price, we can conclude that only some of the additional ingredients are different. Although, as long as they contain the same concentration of Ketoconazole, they are both effective in preventing further hair thinning. Our tip is to choose the one that you personally prefer based on the ingredients or any other aspect and test it out to see if it provides good results. If you notice that one works better for you, it would be better to stick to it rather than the other.
Revita Shampoo contains many key ingredients such as 1% Ketoconazole, 4% Caffeine, MSM, Carnitine tartrate, Copper Peptides, Amino acids, Emu oil, Spin Traps, Biotin, Apple Polyphenols and Rooibos. These wonderful ingredients are excellent to remove DHT build up from the scalp, contain many antioxidants and feeds the hair follicles with stimulating nutrients that will give no other choice for your hair than to grow!
According to a 2000 study, Apple Polyphenols have the ability of increase the diameter of the hair shaft by 78.9%.(6) MSM or Methylsulfonylmethane contains sulfur which is very important and effective for the stimulation of blood circulation and the strengthening of the hair.
