Brush Up Your Look with Hair & Scalp

Spring is here, and it’s time to enjoy a little more fresh air. Speaking of which, it’s also time to shed the tuques, hoodies, and hats; then let your hair down and allow your scalp to breathe a little. Truth is, per the National Institute of Health, hair grows about 10% faster in the summer months. Humid summer air also favours hair with a fuller look. With this in mind, the time is ripe to feed your follicles with nutrients that will further enhance your look.

Enter Hair&Scalp: a unique formula that creates favourable conditions for the prevention of hair loss and thinning. Our synergistic formula contains 19 scalp-specific nutrients, which is up to twice as many ingredients as our competition. Hair&Scalp benefits the hormonal, nerve, microcirculatory, vitamin, and mineral needs critical for the ongoing health of both hair and scalp.

Hair&Scalp boasts a battery of ingredients that target the leading cause of male pattern baldness: the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Higher levels of DHT correlate with the miniaturization of hair follicles and their loss of productivity. Potent standardized extracts of saw palmetto, flax seed, grape seed, green tea, and stinging nettle, blended in a matrix of pumpkin seed oil, work in unison to block action of the enzyme that drives DHT production. This protects hair follicles to preserve your hairline. ʟ‑Taurine works an additional pathway, as it blocks action of the TGF‑β protein that causes inflammation and miniaturization of hair follicles. It’s also beneficial for post-menopausal women left prone to thinning hair due to lower estrogen levels. Hair&Scalp can also address post pregnancy related thinning of hair, which is due to more hair follicles being in their dormant phase during this period.

We’ve included B‑complex vitamins critical for keratin production—the pivotal protein in hair, skin, and nails. These vitamins also support sensory nerves and microcirculation, essential for productive hair follicles, and increase the bioavailability of the entire formula. Beneficial fatty acids, sourced from wild fish and evening primrose oils, favour microcirculation and hair growth, along with vitamin D3.

Our formula also contains potent apple extract, standardized to 5% proanthocyanidins B2, the marker compound clinically proven to promote hair growth. Clinical trials have shown proanthocyanidins B2 (also called procyanidin B2) to stimulate both hair density and thickness. It also interferes with a specific enzyme to prolong the anogen (growth) phase and shorten the telogen (dormant) phase of the hair-growth cycle. This results in more hair follicles in their active stage.

Silica-rich horsetail extract will invigorate hair follicles and strengthen individual strands for increased resistance to breakage and split ends, as well as to increase hair volume.

Great-looking, healthy hair starts from within. Let Hair&Scalp be the fuel that sparks your healthy, more youthful feel and look this spring and summer.
