The Hair Loss Solutions
Today the Regenepure family of products is comprised of the Doctor Recommended (DR) Ketoconazole shampoo, the Nourishing Treatment shampoo, a 5% Precision Minoxidil Spray, and an Intense Volumizing Biotin Conditioner. Together, these sulfate-free and paraben-free products work in combination with one another, to deliver a safe, gentle, and effective hair loss solution for every hair type. Each formula is made with several beneficial ingredients to block DHT, cleanse the scalp of buildup, and infuse the hair with moisture and shine.
Ketoconazole, Saw Palmetto and Niacin (Vitamin B3) for Hair Loss
The Regenepure DR distinguishes itself from the Regenepure NT with the powerful antifungal ingredient, ketoconazole. This clinically proven ingredient not only clears the scalp of fungal infections and dandruff, but it has also been shown to block the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) within the scalp. DHT is a hormone derived from testosterone and is also one of the main culprits of hair loss in both men and women.
According to Medical News Today, 95% of people with androgenic alopecia experience hair loss due to DHT. The amount of DHT in each person is strongly determined by their genetic makeup. When DHT reaches the derma papilla (hair bulb) of the hair follicle, it weakens the absorption of the necessary nutrients needed for healthy hair growth. When the follicle is deprived of this absorption, it actually causes the hair follicle to shrink, this is known as miniaturization. Once miniaturization takes place, the hair follicle will only able to produce very fine, light hair strands that bear a resemblance to peach fuzz. This is where ketoconazole comes into play. When Ketoconazole is applied to the scalp, as a result of its anti-fungal properties, it is not only able to clear the scalp of dandruff and microflora but it also penetrates deep within the hair follicles to halt DHT production and prevent miniaturization.
While the NT does not contain ketoconazole, both the Regenepure DR and NT do however contain other vital ingredients for hair growth including saw palmetto extract and Niacin (Vitamin B3). Saw palmetto extract comes from the berry of the saw palmetto plant (Serenoa repens). According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, there was a study conducted in 2006 showing the effect of Serenoa repens on DHT. The study was held to determine how effective botanically derived inhibitors would be against 5-alpha-reductase, the enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT. In the end, the study confirmed the first sign of evidence proving that saw palmetto was effective in combating androgenic alopecia (pattern baldness.)
While ketoconazole and saw palmetto work to block DHT, other ingredients in the DR and NT, including the B complex vitamin Niacin (Vitamin B3), help to fight hair loss in other ways. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, B complex vitamins are an essential part of healthy hair, skin, eyes, nails and liver. Niacin helps to improve the circulation within the body, which is a crucial component for healthy hair growth. With an improvement of blood circulation comes an increase in oxygen, which the hair follicles need in order to thrive and produce healthy locks.
Precision Minoxidil Spray
Minoxidil is yet another major ingredient that is commonly known to be effective for the treatment of hair loss and is the main ingredient in the Regenepure Precision Minoxidil Spray. According to Medscape, minoxidil is only one of two treatments approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia. Minoxidil is marketed as both a 2% solution and a 5% solution. Although 5% minoxidil has been shown to be somewhat more effective, a 2% minoxidil treatment is typically the recommended dose for women, unless prescribed 5% by a physician. While minoxidil is used to treat male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness, the reason for its effectiveness remains unknown. However, the most popular theory is that it helps to fight dihydrotestosterone (DHT), by preventing the miniaturization of the hair follicles. The Regenepure Precision Minoxidil Spray separates itself from other minoxidil treatments with its innovative swivel nose applicator. This innovative design allows the 5% minoxidil solution to easily access the area of hair loss located on the crown of the scalp.
Topical Biotin for Hair Loss
Like the other Regenepure solutions, the Intense Volumizing Biotin Conditioner also contains many nourishing components that promote growth, in addition to moisture and shine. Some of these ingredients include biotin, copper peptides, keratin and jojoba oil.
While there has been much debate over whether biotin (Vitamin B7) actually helps with hair growth, according to WebMD, although biotin deficiency is rare, it can result in hair thinning and the loss of hair color. Biotin can be taken orally via supplementation or it can be applied topically. This B7 vitamin can be absorbed through the skin and as part of the B complex family; it is also considered an integral part of healthy hair, skin, eyes and liver.
Another important component in the Regenepure Intense Volumizing Biotin Conditioner are copper peptides. Similarly to ketoconazole, minoxidil and saw palmetto extract, copper peptides have also been shown to obstruct the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. Additionally, copper peptides restore microcirculation, which improves the flow of oxygen to the hair follicles.
While the Intense Volumizing Biotin Conditioner consists of multiple ingredients to improve hair growth, since it is a conditioner, it also has many moisturizing components as well including keratin and jojoba seed oil. Keratin serves as a moisture-locking protective barrier when applied topically to the hair, while the structure of jojoba oil allows it to deeply penetrate the scalp and hair follicles with essential moisture.
The Importance of Ingredients
All of the aforementioned ingredients create a broad umbrella covering hair loss from multiple angles. From blocking DHT, to increasing blood circulation, every ingredient in the Regenepure line of products has been thoroughly researched and meticulously chosen, ensuring every solution is gentle yet effective.
