Hair growth serums and hair loss shampoos: trick or treat?

Hair growth serums and hair loss shampoos: trick or treat?

Have you noticed the multitude of ‘hair growth’ serums, masks, lotions and potions that are available these days? Do they deliver on their promises? Our experts set the record straight.

It is not possible to make hair grow faster - or to cure baldness. Sorry.

“Growth” is a big, bold, attractive claim. Sadly, however, there is no known magical formula that will make your hair grow longer or faster or cure male pattern baldness – it’s physiologically impossible and that is why Hairfix does not make a “hair growth serum.”

The reality for most of us is that we will have to contend with hair that changes over time – whether due to age, hormones, stress or other factors – just as the skin on our face changes.

Whilst we can’t stop time, the good news is that there are steps you can take to minimise the impact of time and stress, to keep the hair you have, encourage it to stay on your scalp and help the follicle to produce thicker hair. The result? You’re likely to see more hair stay with you for longer.

For women especially, hair loss is actually the process of hair thinning – and it’s eminently treatable.

Thinning hair is sometimes thought of as baldness. Baldness, however, occurs when follicles stop producing hair altogether. But that doesn’t happen overnight. Before you entirely lose your hair – and that’s a rare occurrence in women – you experience weaker growth, with thinner hair growing from shrunken roots to the point they become ‘baby hairs’ and almost invisible. This is especially true of the hairline, parting and crown.

Whilst this may give the impression of balding because the scalp is more visible, the hair is still there and growing, so it’s a question of invigorating those hair roots into producing thicker, longer lasting hair.

By the way: because Hairfix works with your natural growth cycle, you should allow a minimum of six weeks for results to show, although usually three months is more realistic. Commitment and consistency are key.

How Hairfix treats thinning hair.

With age and stress our roots shrink and produce, thinner, finer hairs. To promote optimal hair growth, you have to "feed" the hair, the follicles and the scalp from the inside and the outside.

Hairfix’s follicle treatments use nature’s most potent active ingredients to do this. They include:

Caffeine has been proven safe and effective in protecting hair roots and follicles against the shrinkage that comes with age. Hairfix’s range of follicle treatments combine caffeine with a healing balm of Acacia Senegal Gum so that it is slow-released for up to 72 hours and can deliver a stronger dose without risk of skin irritation.

Hyaluronic Compound found in Hairfix follicle treatments gently exfoliates the scalp to remove the dead skin cells that block the healthy functioning of the hair follicles. It also moisturises and helps provide support for the follicle bulb, encouraging fullness, body and firmer anchoring of the hair so that you will see less fallen hair in the sink and in your brush.

Biotin and Keratin support thicker hair diameter growth from reinvigorated follicles so that the hair looks and feels naturally thicker, stronger and shinier.

Brazilian Bark Extract (Ziziphus Joazeiro) found in Follicle + Anti-Age has natural antibacterial and soothing properties that reduce scalp irritation and itching - an often undiagnosed cause of hair shedding - to keep your hair rooted and in place. 

Red Clover Extract found in Hairfix Follicle Intense Defence encourages the root to develop collagen so that it will hold onto the hair for longer, keeping more hairs on your head at one time so keeping the hair on the head for longer and, in effect, giving you more hair on your head at any one time.
