LA Science (the LA stands for Lifestyle Aesthetics, not Los Angeles, in case you were wondering) is a company specialising in medical aesthetics, creating products to treat medical conditions that affect people’s appearance.
This shampoo is their flagship product aimed at both men and women, and is designed for the treatment of various types of hair loss conditions including male and female pattern baldness, thinning hair and other forms of hair loss like traction alopecia. It contains a blend of ingredients that have been clinically proven to help protect against hair loss and stimulate the hair follicles to produce new hairs.
LA Science Follicle Stimulating Sampoo uses a “nano delivery system”, a patented nano-liposphere technology that helps the active ingredients better penetrate the scalp. This shampoo works by targeting the hair follicles themselves and aims to stimulate them to produce new hairs and help heal and protect them.
It does not target hormonal imbalances but only the hair loss that occurs as a result of such hormonal imbalance. This makes this shampoo suitable for use for sufferers of non-genetic or hormonal types of hair loss, such as, for example, traction alopecia and thinning hair. Using a product that works on the follicles can be an effective way of regrowing lost hair while protecting existing hair, which ultimately results in thicker hair.
Active ingredients in the LA Science Follicle Stimulating hair loss shampoo and their effects
The shampoo utilises a copper tripeptide complex, which is available in a few other hair loss shampoos and is said to increase circulation to the hair follicles and enlarge them, encouraging thicker hair to grow.
It also contains Oligopeptide-16 which also aids circulation, as well as stimulating the hair follicles stem cells and fortifies the follicles by increasing their energy on a cellular level. Oligopeptide-5 is used to strengthen the hair shafts themselves, while also stimulating the hair follicles, while Oligopeptide-18 targets grey hairs (as this shampoo is partly aimed at post-menopausal women suffering from female pattern baldness), promotes circulation in the scalp and also stimulates the hair follicles. Other ingredients such as biotin and keratin are included to make the hair strong and manageable. Silk extract is included as a conditioning agent.
How to use the LA Science Follicle Stimulating Shampoo
Work into wet hair and massage into the scalp. Start with the roots of the hair, spreading outwards, working towards the ends. Rinse thoroughly. This is a daily use shampoo. The manufacturer recommends this shampoo is used as part of a wider range of products, for best results to be achieved.
