Seeing hair on the pillow every morning, has always be a disconcerting site for women around the world and across generations. The causes could be any number of things from diet, to climate, to genetic, to hormones, or even maybe just normal attrition. We all lose between 50 and 100 strands a day, which is perfectly normal. However, if it goes more than that and none of the issues are a concern then it is most likely that the cause is our lathery friend, the shampoo. So, in order to reduce or eliminate excess hair fall, I put together a short list of shampoos that have been known to curtail this issue in many women.
This on has been on Amazon's best seller list for two years straight, 2012 and 2013. It is advertised as a shampoo that is designed to increase volume as well a stimulate growth and strengthen hair. Going by what customers comment after using it, it seems that the Pura d'or performs as advertised. A 16-ounce bottle retails for less than $30 on Amazon.
This shampoo does not contain any sulfates nor does it have parabens, instead it's main ingredient is an advanced blend of DHT blocker. DHT, if you haven't come across this before is De-Hydrotestosterone. DHT occurs when testosterone in the blood stream interacts with a certain enzyme, 5-Alpha Reductase which is located in hair follicles. When DHT builds up the follicles start to reduce hair production and eventually completely shutdown. Too much of this and eventually baldness is the result.
So having DHT in the shampoo is a good thing, because most women lose hair because of DHT, and the DHT blocker in Pura d'or helps to prevent it from affecting the follicle. It takes a little time to work as the DHT has to build up in the scalp but from what I can tell in researching this is that customers who bought this eventually see growth and reduction in hair-fall around the fourth month of use. In some cases even into the fifth or sixth month.
The product is made coconut extracts, tea tree oil, argan oil, DHT blockers, black seed oil, nettle extract, dead sea salt and yoghurt, among other natural ingredients. The complex natural cocktail is designed to repair any damage the follicles have been subjected to then to reverse the effects of DHT and additionally strengthen the strands by adding biotin and niacin to increase blood flow to the follicles.
The product received some of the highest praise on Amazon and other sites on the web. On Amazon it averaged 3.95 stars out of 5 and received more than a hundred five star ratings from users. In analyzing each five star rating, it was obvious that the results users expected was either met or exceeded by the product. Customer reviews that fell in to the 3-star or worse seemed to be from those with a certain kind of hair. It seems that those with naturally oily hair do not tend to get the best results. So if you have oily hair, I wouldn't try this since that's where most of the dissatisfaction among customers came from. If you have oily hair take a look at the shampoo that came in at #2.
Among Amazon buyers, this is one of the favorite hair growth and hair-loss prevention shampoos. The Nisim comes in a bottle containing either 8 ounces or 33 ounces. So if you want to try this out, the 8 ounce bottle will be just perfect. The 8-ounce bottle retails on Amazon for about $15 while the 33-ounce bottle retails for about $40.
The one thing I must stress is that this product is not some thing that is all-natural. Most of me reviews and most of my products are always natural but this one is not only because this list of shampoos is not one that is about natural, its about stopping hair loss and this product seems to have helped a number of people, especially those with oily hair.
Looking across the comments by those who purchased Nisim it is fairly comforting to find that most of the reviews stand by the product. It seems to have helped halt the hair-loss and in many cases, rejuvenated the growth of hair. However, I must say that there is one thing that didn't quite gel, and that is the company's claims that there would be hair growth in a week. I didn't see any review that supported that, so my advice is to not build up that kind of expectations. It takes sometime to get results, just be patient.
On Amazon, my research found that there were more five-star ratings than there were all other stars. There was even a 1 star but that was not applicable to my research because I knew full well that the shampoo was not natural, yet that's what the comment was about. If you need a natural product, then this is not for you as its ingredients are lab-synthesized. Overall it attracted 3.8 stars. Which in my view is a little on the low side. The 2-star and 1-star rating it received were not really about the product itself. The main reason I like this shampoo is because it provides an opportunity to stimulate hair growth for those who have oily hair.
One of the main ingredients needed to aid in thickening hair is biotin. Well the Avalon Organics comes with Biotin as well as saw palmetto, wheat protein and Vitamin E to thicken the hair as well as rejuvenate the scalp and follicles. This is why I place it at number one, with all the benefits this 14-ounce bottle retails for just under $6. Mind you its not all natural either, but it works pretty good considering all the raving comments.
Analyzing the comments that I found across Amazon and other sites, there is just overwhelming evidence that the product is successful. During my research into its effectiveness, I also found out that their product is cruelty-free and has no animal testing. So that's a relieve, since I try to avoid products that indulge in animal-testing.
The shampoo uses organic aloe leaf juice, biotin, thiamine, riboflavin, soy protein and citric acid among a long list of ingredients. All it requires to work is to wet hair, then later and rinse. Nothing special. You can even use it daily and this is a plus point in my opinion because that way you don't have to use two different shampoos if you have to wash your hair daily.
Among all the shampoos that are out there, and I did try to cover them all, I realized a few things. First there are a lot of shampoos on the market. Second I realized that a lot of them don't come anywhere close to doing what they claim they can. I know this because I rely on a lot of feedback to form an impression. After a while it gets pretty easy to distinguish feedback that is real and ones that are planted. This top three hair shampoos on Amazon certainly seem to make an impact on those who purchased them. I hope it changes your life too.
