There are so many hair loss treatments on the market nowadays, and it can be overwhelming for anyone to decide what products to choose. I was so glad to come across Hairmetto as a local Canadian based natural hair loss treatment that demonstrated exceptional quality on all fronts!
Two people with different kinds of hair loss came to me seeking guidance for hormonal hair loss and gradual hereditary hair thinning. They know my criteria for choosing treatments are pretty high because of my background as a scalp and hair educator. I don't fall for just anything.
Below are the criteria I looked for when doing the research:
1. The products and active ingredients must be naturally sourced and medical grade. The ingredients list has to indicate that it is comprehensive and formulated to be results driven.
2. The ingredients have to be proven safe without any sign of side effects to your health. They need to be free of carcinogens, irritants and synthetic fragrances.
3. There must be real testimonials with pictures of previous customers before and after.
4. The brand has to be eco-friendly and not tested on animals.
5. They take a holistic approach. A product alone cannot fix a problem because it's coming from within diet and lifestyle also plays a vital role in the health of your hair. They recommended healthy lifestyle tips which I appreciated.
6. The brand provides excellent customer service, support and education.
It's important to note that there are several different kinds of hair loss and thinning, ranging from hormonal, stress, illness, post-partum and age.
I highly encourage you to research what type of hair loss you're experiencing to know what you need to do to get to the root cause.
When I came across Hairmetto, I instantly loved the ingredients list.
The ingredients used in the formulas for their particular efficacy in addressing the underlying reasons for hair loss. After doing my research and being impressed with the brand ethos and quality, I decided that this would be the brand I would use.
These are the key ingredients used in their hair treatments and how they work:
Saw Palmetto has been widely accepted as a very effective herbal treatment to reverse hair loss and treat conditions like alopecia. It is scientifically proven that excessive levels of DHT is the root cause of hair loss in adult men. DHT causes hair loss by attaching to hair follicles and shortening their growth phase. Over time, DHT causes hairs to become progressively weaker and finer until they simply stop growing altogether, becoming dormant. According to studies, saw palmetto’s extracts work to inhibit DHT in the scalp thus helping control hair loss and reviving hair follicles. In this way, hair follicles are strengthened, the scalp is less sensitive to stress and irritation and the hair itself improves in body and shine.
2. Pumpkin Seed Oil
Studies show that Pumpkin Seed oil also inhibits the enzyme in the body (5-alpha reductase) that converts testosterone into DHT. DHT is found in the hair follicles of the scalp and causes these follicles to shrink.Pumpkin Seed contains the compounds delta-7-sterine and beta-sitosterol that compete with and lower the level of DHT in the follicles. Furthermore, studies have demonstrated the synergistic benefits of combining Pumpkin Seed with Saw Palmetto for increased efficacy.
3. Castor Seed Oil
High quantities of Vitamin E and Omega-9 fatty acids found in castor oil nourishes both the scalp and hair, combating hair loss, stimulating hair growth, treating scalp infection, reducing split ends and breakage, nourishing and moisturizing the hair, soothing dry scalp and providing thickness to the hair. Massaging the scalp with castor oil can help improve blood circulation to the follicles and encourage their own natural cycle.
4. Lavender, Rosemary and Cedarwood Extract
Dermatologists at Aberdeen Infirmary in Scotland gave an essential oil blend containing Rosemary, Lavender and Cedarwood to participants suffering from alopecia areata and asked them to rub it into their scalps daily. After 7 months, almost half regrew as much as 50% of their hair, while a few regrew almost all of their hair back. The study was reported in the Nov/Dec 1999 issue of Health magazine.Cedarwood oil is known for its anti-inflammatory benefits, regularizing the skins sebum production, assisting with seborrhea or seborrheic eczema where sebum production is increased causing infection in the epidermal cells.
Rosemary essential oil is known for its antimicrobial properties, and is used for a variety of skin infections including eczema.
Lavender essential oil’s anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties work for the health of the scalp and assist follicles with hair growth.
5. Stinging Nettle
Boasting a long rich history in medicine, this organic alcohol-free extract is rich in vitamins, minerals (magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron), proteins, and amino acids which helps combat hair loss while promoting hair regrowth.Properties such as silica and sulfur increase shine of the hair strand and health of the root. Best known for its soothing, anti-inflammatory ability, stinging nettle works to protect the scalp cells from damaging foreign particles such as free radicals, DHT and bacteria. Studies show that results to hair regrowth are intensified when used in conjunction with saw palmetto extract.
6. Japanese Peppermint
The principal ingredient, Menthol, is responsible for its beneficial effects of anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal action – all of which aid in the health of the scalp. Japanese Peppermint has the highest concentration of Menthol (around 80%), increasing its effectiveness. Peppermint also improves blood circulation to the follicles; important for prevention of DHT conversion from testosterone.
I obtained two complete Hair Restoration Kits. Each kit came with two Hair Serums (one used daily and one used weekly) and Scalp Derma Roller to increase product absorption and support healthy micro-circulation and collagen growth.
I gave them clear indications for diet and lifestyle choices that would support the process.
You can see in the above photos that there was a significant improvement in the overall density of their hair over the span of 6-7 months. They began to see reduction in hair thinning after 3 months and saw more density by the 6th and 7th month of use.
The female participant noted a drastic reduction in the visible amount of actual hair loss and noticed her hair became thicker over the months and grew quicker.
The male participant noticed some improvement in the frontal hair line and saw that it stopped receding rapidly and noted increased density in hair loss.
They were both pleased with the results and desired to use Hairmetto continually to slow down the thinning process and support healthy hair growth.
Although they are of different ages and gender, they both experienced positive results with this all-natural hair treatment and had ZERO negative side effects. It wasn't hard to implement into their lifestyle as it was easy, and they enjoyed a self-care practice that gave them a sense of well-being.
I recommend Hairmetto to anyone seeking a natural and effective hair thinning treatment which is experiencing hormonal and gradual hereditary hair thinning.
