5-Shampoos-For-Hair-LossIf you’re suffering from thinning hair or hair loss, then you’ve probably tried everything to get your hair back to normal.

I’ve heard from so many readers about home remedies they’ve tried, and some of them have even sought medical advice/treatment.

Everyone wants to know what works, so here are 5 shampoos for hair loss that I recommend or use at home!

 

5 Shampoos For Hair Loss


Regenepure Treatments

 

Regenepure-DR-Hair-Loss-ShampooRegenepure DR Hair Loss Shampoo

Regenepure DR is a powerful hair loss shampoo with ketoconazole, a powerful anti-fungal that removes the build-up of DHT on the scalp.

This shampoo helps curb hair loss in men and women without sulfates, parabens, DEA and other harsh chemicals.

It is also great for treating dandruff, itchy scalp, or dry scalp!

Regenepure-NT-Nourishing-Treatment-ShampooRegenepure Nourishing Treatment

Regenepure NT is a hair and scalp moisturizing shampoo that cleanses the scalp while promoting future healthy hair growth.

It’s designed to stimulate the scalp and hair follicles while keeping the hair healthy, thick, and conditioned.

This is one of the best shampoos for thinning hair in women.

Regenepure-Intense-Biotin-ConditionerRegenepure Intense Volumizing Biotin Conditioner

Regenepure Intense Volumizing Biotin Conditioner is formulated to bring limp and brittle hair back to life with ingredients like biotin, tea tree and jojoba oils, keratin, silk proteins, copper peptides, and saw palmetto extract.

This conditioner is very heavy! It works wonders, but if you have very fine or thin hair(or your hair seems oily when you use conditioner) then you may want to use it lightly or only once per week. My hair is somewhat thick and medium-textured/wavy. I use this conditioner about twice per week.

Paul Mitchell Tea Tree

 

Paul-Mitchell-Tea-Tree-Hair-Scalp-TreatmentPaul Mitchell Tea Tree Hair & Scalp Treatment

I use this treatment after shampooing and conditioning my hair. You can use it as often as you feel necessary, but 1-2 times per week should be enough.

When I first started using it(my hair was thinner and my scalp wasn’t “normal”), I applied it every time I shampooed and conditioned my hair. You will notice a difference and should change your regimen as your hair improves.

    Hey there, what’s the best treatment for hair loss after having a baby, my son is about six months and my hair had never been failing this bad, thank you

  2. Vanessa says:

    What would you suggest for thinning hair due to thyroid issues?
    Im getting mixed reviews.

    • Erika says:

      It depends on what’s going on with your thyroid…products will not do it all. I’m not a doctor, so I cannot make suggestions based on medical conditions. You can try something like Nioxin Diamax, but most likely you need to start with your health.

  3. Sally says:

    Kerastase Initialiste saved my thinning hair. I’ve never had such thick hair my entire life after using this!

  4. Just wondering if you have heard of Eprouvage and if you have your opinion. I was going to use Nioxin but the hair salon said that the products they recommend for hair loss are Nioxin and Eprouvage, with better results seen with Eprouvage. I also have major hair thinning from using Wen since 2009 and have been searching for the best solution. Thanks!

    • Erika says:

      I haven’t heard of that one yet, but another popular brand is Keranique. It’s at Ulta Beauty and those that don’t care for Nioxin seem to love it.

      • Thanks. My picture is my hair before I lost it, now it is so fine and thin, easily 1/2 what it was because of thinning. Nioxin and Eprouvage are ones they sell at the salon. Eprouvage is a new one, only about about 2 years but with really good results from what I have read and from what the hairdressers’ said. I checked out Keranique, it looks like an As Seen On TV product. I am unable to use it though as it has Minoxidil – since I am nursing. I have also read that 5% Minoxidil, once a day is better for women that 2% twice a day.Reviews on Amazon and other sites are overall not good for Keranique. Thanks though!

    • Kathy rogers says:

      Can you send me some info on the Monat product you are talking about. I have been using Keranique for almost 3 months and it seems to be doing nothing . . I think my issue may be hormonal imbalance . . But started noticing my hair thinning about 6 months ago . . Thanks

  6. Michelle Copley says:

    I had weight loss surgery and one of the things we are warned of before is hair loss. That being said I am luckier than most because I have always had fast growing super thick hair that has rarely been in bad shape because I have always treated my hair as if it WERE fragile and rarely ever using heat for anything. With that being said I take 2 hair and nails tablets and a higher dose of b complex vitamins and have used shampoos for hair loss and if they don’t already have tree tea oil or rosemary in them I add a few drops to the shampoo or conditioner. Is there anything else I should be doing? I’ve read about some horse and dog shampoos that are ok for humans to use and wanted to know what you thought of those as well. This is the thinnest my hair has ever been but it doesn’t look bad aside from the regrowth lol my hair tends to frizz and curl up like crazy so the days of throwing my hair in a bun is not ok for general population’s sight. I have also colored my hair since I was 19 when I went gray prematurely and now I am afraid to do my roots so I am a real hot mess LOL

  7. Hannah Harris says:

    It was such an amazing article. But form my point of view the product I am using deep hair treatmentis really effective.It will improve your hairs for sure so try it once people because This deep nourishing treatment masque is enriched with the goodness of Argan Oil – touted for its high concentrations of vitamins A and E that help strengthen and smoothen hair naturally, as well as Sea Kelp extract, which is a humectant that helps your hair retain moisture.

  8. Melissa says:

    I struggled for many many years with dry,brittle,non growing hair. It would get shoulder length but was very dry and frizzy and would have so many split ends that my hair would break off. I tried everything from keratin treatments to Brazilian blowouts,to DIY remedies,to expensive shampoos and conditioners and leave in sprays but nothing worked. Only left it dryer and frizzed. It wasn’t until 4 months ago someone introduced me to Monat. All natural botanical plant based products. These products are so concentrated one system has lasted me the entire 5 months! I’m 38 yrs old and my hair is growing! Shiny,healthy and strong. No more globs of hair in the shower drain. Monats products have clinical studies with less than a 1% return rate. It has helped those from genetic hair loss to cancer chemo patients. It also will grow back eye brows and eye lashes too!

  9. Xochitl says:

    When you recommend 3 separate items from the same brand, such as Regenepure, are you basically suggesting we need to purchase all three to get results? I’m only asking because they are all quite pricey and sometimes I don’t understand if the reviews are solely based on the shampoos or if they include the scalp treatments. Tx!

  10. CeeDee says:

    Thanks! Was looking for something effective to counteract the 4-year-ago Wen hair loss with no recovery that I can see. Please continue sharing & updating. Blessings!

    • Erika says:

      I haven’t heard anything new yet, but I will share when I do!

      You may also want to read through some of the comments on this page and the two posts listed below. There are some great suggestions from other readers who’ve been through the same experiences with WEN as you have. I’m working on putting a lot of the information on one page, but it’s not done yet.

      Here are some other good references for you:
      Do These Things If You’re Losing Hair
      WEN Causes Hair Loss

  11. Angela says:

    Hi there, just curious, why would you say Nioxon is a last resort? my sister just gave me some to try and I’m very interested to see if it works for my thinning hair, I’ve never tried anything for this before, so I just want to make sure there are no dangers and using it. Thanks!

    • Erika says:

      Nioxin is a stronger system and it’s for a specific type of thinning(it’s also expensive and you must use the Nioxin system that is specific to your hair/situation). Nioxin is best for people who have thinning hair because of aging…that’s why I list it as the last resort.

      I posted these suggestions in response to the many comments on WEN Causes Hair Loss. Nioxin is a last resort in that case because there is no evidence yet as to why WEN causes hair loss, so I recommend that people try other methods before using Nioxin.

      Nioxin isn’t dangerous, but if your hair is thinning and you’re not over 50(or not close to menopause) then I suggest thinking about what else may be causing the thinning. At 25 I experienced a lot of thinning and my hair just wasn’t “normal”. It was due to stress and lack of certain vitamins….so think about all factors first 🙂 .

  12. knlovett says:

    You should look into Monat, which is a naturally-based, non-toxic hair care line which is clinically proven to work better at stopping hair loss and regrowing hair better than products containing Minoxidil. It also improves the texture and condition of your hair with each use without any silicones or parabens. I used Nioxin for 5 years and it ruined my hair. It did slow hair loss but made my hair completely dull and so brittle that it broke off after only 1-2 inches. I actually started wearing wigs until a few months on Monat! I’d love to send you some Monat products and information to try if you’d be interested in looking into this new line. – Kristi

    • Erika says:

      Thanks for the suggestion! Nioxin is great, but you must use the right system for your hair. There are more options than there used to be, so I think they are improving!

      I also suggest using a leave-in conditioner and/or weekly hair mask with products like Nioxin so that your hair will not get dull/brittle.

      These are the BEST for repairing and nourishing damaged hair(also great for normal hair):

    • Tiffiny says:

      Hi! Was just reading your post . And I wanted to know more about this product you use. I am trying to limit my exposure to unnecessary toxins as I am battling an auto immune disorder. I have female pattern baldness and am getting thin in the crown , and am looking for a good product

      • Erika says:

        Which product line are you referring to?

        Have you tried the Tea Tree Hair and Scalp Treatment by Paul Mitchell? I always suggest starting simple instead of trying more harsh products for hair loss first. In your case it’s a little different because the body can be unpredictable.

      • Melissa says:

        Hello. I’m a Market Partner for MONAT. A botanical plant based anti aging hair care line proven to regrow hair. MONAT has so many amazing testimonies on MONAT testimonies fb pages. MONAT is the only botanical plant based hair care system that is toxin free with 3rd party clinical studies with less than a 1% return rate which speaks volumes. Many salon products is filled with toxins that does the body more harm than good. So if you would like more info about MONAT please email me or look me up on fb. Thank you so much!

    • Janice visconti says:

      Interested in Monat products. Can you send me information and maybe some samples of product I guess due to surgeries medication and age. My hair has gotten very think and am finding hair everywhere

  13. I also appreciate your posting these shampoos I can use to help curb/slow down my hair loss. However, I don’t think I have ever seen any of them in stores. Would I need to buy them at a salon? Also, where do you find out about this stuff? I bet you didn’t learn about all of these products in school.

    • Erika says:

      I went to a Paul Mitchell school….so we were thoroughly educated on their product systems but my learning leaders were not allowed to talk about other product brands. The shampoos I recommend in this post are products that I’ve personally had a good experience with, my clients told me about them, or they were carried at my salon.

      I found the Regenepure products by accident! I’m a member of a product review site that sends me products in exchange for an honest review(sometimes they do a giveaway for my readers). They sent me the Regenepure Volumizing Biotin Conditioner and I have to be honest…it’s not something that I would just order on a whim. I’ve already finished my first bottle and ordered another. Regenepure is the most clicked product link on my product posts and it’s results correlate with the interest I’ve seen in the products.

      You can order most of these online or get them at a salon. If you order on Amazon make sure the retailer has a lot of good reviews and/or is a verified seller. I usually try to provide a link to the product website or somewhere that you can order it, but that’s not always possible. I will add another comment with locations where you can find each of the product brands!

      Thanks for reading!

  14. rahmanlima74 says:

    Thank u for sharing that very important information with me.

    • Erika says:

      Your welcome! There are other great shampoos for hair loss/hair thinning, but I have used these or recommended them to my clients and seen the results.

      So far….I think most readers are liking the Regenepure products. This is just from reading their e-mails and comments. If you’ve used anything else that worked, please share!

      Thanks for reading!
