Reverse Balding with These 5 Shampoos

It can be a traumatic experience to look in the mirror and realize that you are losing hair or even going bald. The most important thing is to determine why you are balding, and if there is something you can do about it. The good news? There are a few different types of hair growth shampoo products that could help you regrow your hair!

Determining the Reason for Balding

When you are dealing with hair loss, it is important to understand why you are losing hair. Make a doctor’s appointment to rule out any medical issue, and once you have been cleared you are good to go when it comes to testing hair growth products.

Regrowing hair that was lost due to having a dry scalp or overusing flat irons and blow dryers is one thing, and regrowing genetically balding hair is another. However, in both cases, there are a few ingredients to look for in your hair regrowth shampoo!

There are no guarantees when it comes to regrowing your hair, especially if thinning hair is genetic and runs in your family, but it is worth a try.

Caring for Your Hair

No matter how you look at it, you always come back to the importance of proper hair care. Look over your regular hair care routine to see if there is anything you can change. Perhaps you wear a hat too often, or use a cheap shampoo that really isn’t doing your hair any favors?

A healthy scalp is also important, as you are unlikely to have healthy and strongly growing hair if your scalp is itchy, dry, or overly greasy. You will come a long way by simply switching to quality hair care products.

Ingredients to Look for in a Shampoo

Now, let’s look at some of the ingredients that you want to find in a hair growth shampoo that really works. Always check the ingredients to see what was used to make a product, instead of simply trusting the marketing methods used.

1. Caffeine

While not proven, there are some strong indicators that coffee could help stimulate the scalp, which then promotes hair to grow faster and stronger.

2. Argan Oil

Argan oil contains plenty of Vitamin E, which is believed to promote hair growth, and other than that it is a nutritious oil that helps care for your hair and scalp – indirectly boosting your hair’s ability to grow.

3. Biotin

Biotin is one thing where there has been actual proof of its hair growth benefits when including it in a shampoo! You can also take supplements with biotin to give your body a real health boost.

4. Niacin

It is unclear if it is enough to incorporate the vitamin B3 compound (niacin) in your diet or if having it in your shampoo could provide additional benefits, but it certainly can’t hurt as vitamin B3 is known to promote hair growth.

5. Zinc

If your hair loss is partially caused by a zinc deficiency, shampoos with zinc are beneficial. Zinc also promotes properly functioning hair follicle glands.

Other ingredients are other types of oils, like coconut oil, that can help give your scalp and hair the health boost it needs to grow hair. 


It would be easy to point out the top shampoos to reverse balding, but the best thing you can do for your hair is to learn what to look for in a shampoo. Balding isn’t necessarily permanent and there are often ways to reverse the effect and to get your hair to start growing back.
