If there is one thing the alarming global health crisis did not wipe out, it would be the irritating existence of hair loss that continues to haunt humankind. To say that hair loss is “troubling”, would certainly be an understatement, especially when you wake up to the terrified sight of fallen hair every single day, or worse, strands of hair clogged at your shower drain.
Should I be concerned or worried if I am losing hair?
Before you lose your Zen and freak out thinking that your game is over, you’ve got to know that you’re not alone in this battle. In fact, research figures tell us that about 80 million Americans are facing the same issue. And to make you feel slightly better, hair loss happens to both genders – men and women, and you’d be surprised to learn that it may even occur as early as your late 20s.
So, is hair loss the end of the world? Of course, not.
If you are looking at ways to grow hair with shampoo, or perhaps, got bored with your current bob cut and would like to expedite hair growth, this article is the perfect butter to your bread. Get your pens and papers ready because we’re spilling some insider secrets you wish you knew earlier.
But let’s take a step back and first find some answers to a question that consistently ranks 1st in almost all search engines –
Why is hair loss happening to me?
Well, there is a myriad of explanations and a thousand and one reasons as to why hair loss occurs. If we talk science, then the blame goes to genetics, illness, medication, supplements, hormones, childbirth, or even stress.
However, the effort you spent on styling our hair to gain the jaw-dropping look that turns heads at parties, also contributes to a type of hair loss referred to as traction alopecia. This explains why dermatologists recommended to avoid ponytails, buns and up-dos that are tightly pulled including dreadlocks, cornrows or tightly braided, unless for special occasions. The reason is simple - they strain your hair too much.
This may be hard pill to swallow, especially for hair enthusiasts who go above and beyond in terms of hair styling. But now that you’re more aware and informed on the root causes of hair loss, you can be a little more conscious about what you do with your hair next time.
How can I regrow it fast?
Okay, let’s move on to the core of this article and see how you can salvage your hair loss misery quick, all with the help of shampoo.
How exactly does a shampoo help in growing my hair faster?
The content and ingredient of the shampoo is the core that unlocks new possibilities for your hair. But to be blunt and brutally honest, shampoo does not and cannot miraculously grow your hair overnight. However, they are without a shadow of doubt, powerful hair growth agents that are infused with active and industry-tested ingredients that can strengthen your hair shaft, reduce breakage, and clean the scalp.
In the long run, this will put a halt to hair loss and allows you achieve the fuller, voluminous and confident look you have always dreamt of.
There are so many types of shampoo in the market, where do I start?
By learning about your own hair. This means getting to know your hair condition, texture, type and etc. If you fall within the lucky tribe who are free from hair issues, then any-other-normal-shampoo that you can find at your local store would suffice and do just fine.
But if you’re reading this article and is a victim of hair loss, you’re very likely to be interested in volumizing, anti-breakage and moisturizing shampoo, which all share the similarity of hastening hair growth through its multitude of specialized ingredients.
We understand it can be daunting and dreadful walking into an aisle full of shampoo from different brands, not knowing which and what to pick. So, we’ve specially prepared this article to help you solve your misery.
For a start, we recommend you give the Tayloani’s Infinigrowth Shampoo a try. Its formula of excellence is the pinnacle of hair care, having scored accolades and trust from women globally. Its clinically-proven formula features a medley of industry-tested ingredients including Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Beet Oil, Biotin, Baobab Oil and Vitamin. Not only does it reduce breakage and avoid hair loss, but it is also a true savior to frizzy hair. To top things off, the product is proudly made in the USA, and has secured PETA approval.
If you desperately want to grow hair fast, then opt for the Tayloani Infinigrowth Bundle right away. As the name suggests, the bundle is curated to reward you with infinite benefits. It comes with an Infinigrowth Shampoo, an Infinigrowth Hair Masque, an Infinigrowth Hair Detangler and 15 Infinigrowth Shower Caps. Why the bundle you may ask? This is because all the products are formulated to well-complement one another, so you can expect doubled, or even tripled results if you use them right.
Now back to the topic on shampoo selection, the other effective way for you to scale down your shampoo choices is to see if you have scalp issues such as dandruff or acne. If the answer is an unfortunate yes, then skip everything else and zoom into specialized products upon consultation from your dermatologist or hair expert because scalp problem is a no-joke.
But, is there a general way to spot a good shampoo before I buy it?
Certainly, all you must do is look out for the label, spot the ingredients, and watch out for red tapes. If you’re going to apply the shampoo on where the crown sits – your head, you better be educated on what brings good and what causes harm.
As you may have already read in magazines, articles or news sites, good shampoos that help grow your hair fast and effective are usually packed with a myriad of heavenly ingredients. In other words, you are on the right track to grow hair faster, and will be in good hands if you see ingredients like Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Biotin, Jojoba Oil and Arnica Montana. Why so?
Jamaican Black Castor Oil
The skyrocketing popularity of Jamaican Black Castor Oil in the recent years is backed by its functional ability to moisturize, thicken, strengthen and rapidly increase hair growth, all thanks to its specialty crinoline acid that locks moisture in the scalp. Its alkaline nature and higher pH values are also keys to open up hair follicles. Of course, the crème de la crème of this oil lies in its suitability on all hair types.
Also widely known as Vitamin B7, Biotin is used in hair care products to stimulate keratin production and increase the rate of follicle growth. Higher keratin production will result in stronger hair, making them less prone in falling out. Other natural sources of Biotin are meat, fish, nuts, vegetables, eggs and seeds.
Famed for its oily composition that is rich in vitamins and minerals, Jojoba Oil nourishers the hair for having vitamin C, B vitamins, vitamin E, copper, and zinc. It often make-up part of shampoos in order to supply a layer of extra protection against hair breakage, dry hair and split ends.
Arnica Montana rejuvenates scalp and stimulates the hair follicles by improving the blood flow to prevent premature hair fall. It is a pivotal provider of proteins that enhances and levels up the health of one’s hair follicle, subsequently reducing inflammation that may contribute to hair loss caused by irritation or excessive scratching.
Now that you know the ingredients you should have right down your alley, it is of greater importance for you to learn and identify the deal breakers. For a start, parabens, sulfate, triclosan, polyethylene glycols are some major red tapes you must avoid at all costs. Here’s the deal - if you ever see the abovementioned, promise us that you will put it back on the shelf. Please don’t fall prey and here’s why.
Parabens (glamour name: xeneostrogens)
Before you plunge into the pool of reasons on why you should avoid parabens, know that most product labels don’t carry the outright label of “parabens”, so learn to spot methylparaben, butylparaben and ethylparaben, all of which also end with the term “paraben”.
If you haven’t already known, many brands formulate shampoos with parabens to extend shelf life because having preservatives is simply cost-effective and of course, inexpensive. However, this is a major no-no to consumers as parabens may cause hormonal changes by interfering estrogen production, in which an excess will boost the growth of breast cell division and tumours. To see things from a greater perspective, parabens may threaten lives.
It’s not very uncommon to come across the term “sulfate”, but many turn a deaf ear and don’t really apprehend the consequences that entail this chemical detergent. Scientifically speaking, sulfate is used as a cleansing agent to remove oil and dirt, which explains its presence in detergents and even cleaners. However, its presence in shampoo also implies that natural oils and moisturizes will be potentially stripped off when you apply sulfate, potentially causing flaking or worse, irritation on your scalp.
Don’t be too surprised to learn that this part-preservative, part-antibacterial is still typically and widely available in toothpaste, deodorants, makeup products, and of course, shampoos. Not only this preservative does not carry any tangible benefits, but it is also associated to scalp inflammation, hair loss, and dryness. In fact, this endocrine disruptor may even dampen hair growth and slow down the entire growth process, which is the last thing you’d wish for if you’re already suffering hair loss and would like to grow your hair fast.
Similar to parabens, you will also have to look out for Triclosan’s alternative names such as Cloxifenolum, Lexol 300, and Triclocarban.
Polyethylene Glycols (PEG)
Despite its bad influence and negative repercussions, PEG is still apparently found in many brands, especially those who don’t take purity of products seriously. This chemical that is used to improve the texture of the shampoo will permeate throughout and within your scalp, causing your hair follicle to dry up quickly and consequently, cause hair loss. As a matter of fact, prolonged application of this synthetic ingredient will cause irritation on the scalp and hair, leading to dry and brittle hair.
As people always say – “knowledge is power”. This information may sound technical, boring and uninteresting but it is a prerequisite in selecting the right shampoo, so you don’t cause additional damage to your scalp and hair that are already in dire need of a knight in shining armor. Keep a copy of this handy info by bookmarking or taking a quick screenshot, we strongly believe that having this as your disposal will be useful in your next shampoo shopping spree.
How soon / fast will I see results after using shampoo?
Typically, it takes about 4 weeks to see noticeable results and 12 weeks for full transformation. Slight improvements can be observed as short as 2 weeks. However, it is vital to understand that the time horizon for the outcome of results is dependent on a handful of factors, including consistency of usage, condition of initial damage and the types of products applied.
However, here’s what customers who have experienced Tayloáni’s Infinigrowth treatment first-hand are telling us:
Damaged hair gradually treated and repaired. Better hydration will be achieved.
Noticeable and apparent improvement in hair condition with slight acceleration in hair growth.
Scalp starts to produce new hair; strands grow to be stronger. Hair is starting to look fuller and shinier.
Hair gains full rebirth and condition is stabilized. Hair growth is expected to continue in the future upon consistent usage.
What should I take note after applying shampoo?
Picking the right shampoo is important, but it does not just end here. An excellent shampoo that works magic is a purely a foundational step to advance the forthcoming stages. Here are a few more things for you to consider, if you want to grow your hair faster:
The Rapunzel dream of yours will be miles away if you only work on products but neglect your diet. A considerable part of hair growth also trickles down to what you put into your body, in simpler terms, what your diet choices are. Consume food that are high in protein, which form the integral blocks of hair growth. Nutritionists suggest meats, fish, beans, nuts and whole grains and indispensable for one seeking to grow hair.
Rome wasn’t built in a day, and this cliché theory also applies to hair care. You can’t be expecting apparent results if you’re getting your treatment just every-now-and-then. Although it can be tiresome to keep up to the tedious hair care routine, we’re pretty sure you’ll be thankful that you’ve done so because hair care is just like investing, it only gets better when it is consistent.
If you’ve been consistent throughout your hair care journey but still don’t see any signs of your hair loss abating, we suggest you take a step back and relook into your product selection. More often than never, our hair care routine ends up being a combination of products from a variety of brands, each of which are claimed to be the “best-of-the-best” in its own discipline. This may at cases, raise concerns about compatibility since they are formulated using different approaches and formulas by varied hair professionals.
A simple and direct way to solve this is to switch in products of the same brand. In other words, attempt sticking to one particular brand for all your hair-related products – from shampoo, conditioner, hair masque and etc. A renowned and consumer-centric hair care company like Tayloáni carries a full and wide selection of products catered for the ever-growing consumer market.
Remember earlier when we told you that dermatologists recommend to avoid ponytails, buns and up-dos that are tightly pulled including dreadlocks, cornrows or tightly braided? Well, we suggest you take this seriously because such hairstyles strain your hair way too much that it may lead to hair breakage you do not wish to happen.
Is shampoo the only way to grow my hair fast?
No, it isn’t. But it’s dubbed as the one of the most effective ones that can work alongside other treatments. You can always double up or fasten your results timeline by factoring in other treatment products including but not limited to hair masque, conditioners or even Thermocap.
A super concentrated, deep conditioning treatment that is primarily aimed at healing damaged hair. It must be remembered that hair masque is not meant for daily use, and instead encouraged to be applied only once to twice in a week. Hair masque treats your hair from inside out by penetrating the hair follicle to infuse it with generous nourishment. It is also used to restore vitality and layer a coat of shine and luster to enhance the overall healthy-luscious-hair look.
With the rise of cutting-edge technology, accessibility and convenience, hair masques are also starting to become great alternatives and substitutes as a fill in treatment before salon visits.
Thermocap?! You’ve read that right and its exactly what the name suggests it to be, a beautiful integration of heat in a cap, how quirky! A Thermocap comes packed with gel pearls that slowly warms your hair over a protracted time frame, avoiding breakage and frizz that ruin the natural oils in your hair. Hair experts suggest that Thermocap work best when paired with a hair masque as the cap encapsulates heat to activate oils and therapeutic conditioners by diffusing them deep into your hair follicle.
