Healthy and luscious hair is considered as the ideal for beauty. Hair loss is a common beauty concern that both women and men face at some point in their lives. Many reasons cause thinning hair and hair loss, such as; genetics, aging, heat styling, hormonal changes, and nutritional deficiencies. However, it is essential to identify the underlying reason for hair loss to address this issue.
Adopting a good hair care routine coupled with proper nutrition, is the key to promote hair growth. Strengthening the scalp’s health is also necessary to support the natural hair growth process. The hair growth process gets affected by clogged pores, inflammation, dandruff, and skin infections. Therefore, to combat hair loss, addressing issues affecting the scalp’s health is the prime step.
Fortunately, there are specifically-formulated shampoos that help combat hair loss and thinning hair by boosting the scalp’s health. Botanic Hearth’s Volumizing Shampoo contains biotin, rosemary oil, and natural DHT blockers that help promote the scalp’s health. It has healthy ingredients that nourish and soothe an irritated scalp, supporting shiny and voluminous looking hair. Here we have discussed the benefits of biotin and natural DHT blockers for scalp’s health:
Biotin is a vital constituent of enzymes involved in the metabolic process in the human body. It is known as vitamin H or B7. It is a water-soluble vitamin that plays a prominent role in converting fats, carbohydrates, and amino acids into energy. Biotin is also instrumental in promoting the growth of cells and the production of glucose.
Biotin deficiency can cause thinning of hair, skin rashes, hair loss, brittle nails, and other mild symptoms. Therefore, it is a staple ingredient in many hair and skincare products. Biotin is known to help fortify hair, supporting scalp’s health, and boosting hair growth.
Rosemary Essential Oil
Rosemary essential oil is sometimes referred to as ‘Dew of the Sea.’ It is extracted from an aromatic herb named Rosmarinus Officinalis. It exhibits antioxidant properties that help cleanse the scalp and soothe inflammation and dryness. Rosemary oil also has tonic properties that help nourish the scalp. Moreover, it calms itchiness and irritations on the scalp and improves its overall health, promoting shinier, healthier, and softer hair.
Natural DHT Blockers
The human body produces DHT (dihydrotestosterone) through an enzyme called 5a-Reductase and testosterone. 5a-Reductase plays a vital role in converting a specific percentage of testosterone into DHT in the skin, hair follicles, liver, and prostate tissues. The testosterone hormone exists in both men and women. However, women secrete relatively a small amount of testosterone than men. DHT is responsible for stimulating the development of androgen hormone (male characteristics). Each day, testosterone converts 10% of DHT into skin tissues and other parts of the body.
High levels of DHT are linked to hair loss in men. The high levels of DHT can block receptors in the hair follicles, causing them to shrink and get weak and eventually incapable of supporting healthy hair growth. This process is called miniaturization. Therefore, the shampoos containing DHT blockers are known to promote hair growth, support the scalp’s health, and revitalize damaged hair.
