How Effective is Stem Cell Therapy for Hair Loss?
Hair loss has many causes. The most predominant is hereditary, meaning you have inherited a predisposition to hair loss. Hair loss can also be the result of stress, medication, hormonal changes, and certain hair treatments and hairstyles. Regardless of the cause, hair loss occurs when hair follicles shrink and become rooted in the skin. This happens when a follicle reaches the end of its lifecycle and fails to repeat the cycle. Therefore in order to reverse hair loss, the follicle needs to be rejuvenated. One way to do this is by using a shampoo that contains plant stem cells.
Stem cell shampoo is a natural, painless and non-invasive treatment for hair loss. It effectively uses the regenerative properties of plant stem cells to stimulate the hair follicle lifecycle, reversing hair loss. It also counteracts the cause of hereditary hair loss and promotes fuller growth and vitality.
Stem cell shampoo works by depositing the plant cell known as meristem onto the scalp, which then works on the cell structures of the hair follicle to activate the lifecycle of the follicle, resulting in hair growth and follicle regeneration.
The life cycle of the hair follicle has three phases: growth, death and rest. The growth phase lasts 2 to 6 years, during which time hair grows about 1 centimeter every 4 weeks. In the death phase, the follicle recedes and growth stops. At this point, the follicle will rest. The hair follicle will remain in this stage for a brief time and it’s at this time when you are most likely to lose strands of hair.
In normal follicles, after the rest phase, the follicle will re-enter the growth phase. In sufferers of hereditary baldness or alopecia, however, this follicle rebirth doesn’t happen. Instead, the follicles shrink and become inactive. This is where meristem cells come in.
Meristem is found in the growth areas of plants and contains undifferentiated cells. These cells are what causes a plant to grow. Meristem cells are special because they are capable of self-rejuvenation. Essentially, they die and bring themselves back to life. This unique property is why they are crucial to curing and preventing hair loss. Meristem cells stimulate the hair follicle’s lifecycle. This results in more hair follicles growing into hair strands, which gives you thicker hair. It also reduces hair loss by ensuring that once the follicle finishes its cycle, it regenerates. Furthermore, the regenerative properties of the meristem cells also increase the volume of hair and improve its luster.
Stem cell shampoos also cleanse your skin of Dihydrotestosterone or DHT. DHT is a byproduct of testosterone. When someone is genetically predisposed to hair loss, DHT tends to bind itself to the receptors in hair follicles, causing the follicles to shrink and stop growing. Stem cell shampoos block DHT from attaching to hair follicles. Therefore, regular use of stem cell shampoo will ensure that hair continues to grow.
Stem Cell Shampoo is a natural, non-invasive and painless treatment for hair loss. It’s unique because of the way it utilizes the growth properties of plant stem cells and in the way it prevents DHT from attaching to hair follicles. Researchers are working on using human stem cells to reverse hair loss but they have yet to receive FDA approval. Therefore, plant stem cell shampoo is the only stem cell therapy for hair loss currently on the market.
