Plant Based Ingredients For Treating Hair Loss
Among all the known natural plant based treatments for hair loss, Saw Palmetto (Seranoa repens) is the most popular treatment by many men and women for its ability to block the formation of DHT (the hormone that causes hair loss). This will create a healthy environment for hair to grow and slows down hair loss. It will take around 6 months to see the effectiveness but it has been proven to increase hair volume by 40% to 60%. SureThik’s goal is to provide an effective yet gentile approach to targeting hair loss. Our products have natural ingredients that will bring frail and fragile hair back to life, adding elasticity and shine without stripping or drying out the hair.
Other herbs with DHT blocking ability:
Pygeum (Pygeum africanum) – From the bark of the African plum tree, Pygeum Africanum is known in Europe, Africa and the US as a common herbal remedy for treating benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) and has the property of inhibiting the enzyme, 5-alpha reductase, which convert testosterone to dihydrotestosterone.
Green tea (Camellia sinesis) – It contains catechins which may inhibit the enzyme (5-alpha-reductase) that converts testosterone into DHT.
Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra), which also prevents conversion of testosterone to DHT. Common application is adding licorice to your shampoo.
When treating hair loss, keep in mind that it is important to target the issue topically and internally. Everything that you put in and on your body can affect your health. Be sure to check the ingredients in your hair care products, most “off the shelf” brands do more harm than help.
