Organic Hair Growth Shampoo and Conditioner – All Natural Ingredients

Often overlooked, natural ingredients such as those extracted from organic herbs have the greatest potential for improving overall hair and scalp health. Here we review what the scalp and hair follicles require to grow and the natural ingredients contained in our Hair Growth Shampoo and Conditioner that can potentially provide these conditions.

What does the scalp require to successfully regrow hair?

  • Hair follicles need a consistent supply of oxygen (circulating blood flow)
  • Hair follicles need a steady supply of nutrients delivered to the scalp
  • Hair follicles need a supply of amino acids to build the protein keratin
  • Hair follicles need a healthy balance of oils within the scalp. Excessive dryness (dandruff) or oil, both can promote hair loss.

The Hair by Science Growth Shampoo and Conditioner is an organic blend of essential oils and herbal extracts, known to support hair follicle and scalp health. To prevent hair thinning and facilitate successful hair regrowth, the scalp needs to be returned to a state of balance. It needs to be replenished with fortifying ingredients that are 100% natural. Alongside there must be a rich source of nutrients supplied to nourish the hair follicle. (No harmful additives!) Additives counteract the nourishing benefit one can derive from a purely natural product. Many competing hair regrowth shampoos and conditioners will market their product as a 100% organic product, even though chemical additives and fillers have been added. This is not the case with the Hair by Science brand.
