The plant-based way to thicker, healthier hair. Support healthy hair growth the natural way with proven, ultra high quality active ingredients that work with your body. The Saw Palmetto extract that is used in the product is pharmaceutical grade, meaning it is pure and ultra-potent. This makes it a powerful addition to the Scalp Elixir. Safflower became famous for its ability in clinical studies to promote stronger, thicker hair. What most people who try Safflower don't realize is the extract type and quality greatly affect efficacy. Hairguard uses the highest quality and most potent extract. Eclipta Alba has performed well in hair growth studies repeatedly. It's also very soothing and can help reduce inflammation, making a perfect addition to dry scalps. Caffeine has become a popular addition to anti-thinning shampoos, but the problem is that it doesn't stay in contact with the scalp long enough to have noticeable benefits. Since the Elixir stays in contact with your hair and scalp overnight, the Caffeine now has a better chance to help support blood flow to the hair follicle. Taurine can help rejuvenate hair in multiple ways. It may help inhibit fibrosis (a process that reduces blood flow). It has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. Lastly, it can help to protect the hair follicles from stress-induced hair loss making it a powerful addition to the Elixir.
Roughly 88 percent of hair is composed of the protein keratin. Keratin is a fibrous protein that makes up the structure of hair, skin and nails. For our body to produce keratin it needs adequate levels of certain amino acids, some produced by our bodies, but others need to be supplemented.
Amino acids are the building blocks of the different proteins, hormones and neurotransmitters that our bodies need.
They play an integral part in all vital biological processes such as production of red blood cells that supply nutrients and oxygen to hair follicles.
Amino acids that are considered the best for producing keratin are:
Cysteine - It stimulates new hair growth and it is also an antioxidant that protects the hair from sun damage and it provides Sulphur to hair cells to improve texture and strength. Without enough Cysteine to maintain Keratin structures your hair will weaken and be prone to breakage. It is essential in metabolizing certain nutrients, including Biotin, which as you know is very important to hair growth.
Methionine - It is a powerful antioxidant and great source of Sulphur. It also plays a role in synthesis of collagen.
Lysine - Helps the absorption of zinc and iron, which plays a big part in hair loss for many people. Lysine also stops conversion of testosterone to DHT by blocking 5-alpha reductase. DHT is the main cause of androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness.

This handheld brush is meant specifically for scrubbing your scalp. It is different than your usual brush you’d use to style your hair. It is a small round brush with silicone or plastic bristles in stead of coarse bristles found on normal styling hair brushes.
These brushes are used to clean and exfoliate the scalp. By doing so, it removes dead skin cells as well as increase blood circulation to the scalp, which helps any topical products used for hair loss to reach the follicles better and the increased blood supply means that more of the product will be transported to where it is needed to nourish the follicle and hair.
The sloughing away of scalp build-up can help with hair growth by unclogging the hair follicles, which leads to improved hair growth and healthier hair.
Massage your scalp regularly to improve the thickness of your strands. It is believed that a scalp massage does this by stretching the cells of hair follicles, which stimulates the follicles to produce thicker hair.
L-lysine is an essential amino acid, which means it can not be synthesized by the body, it has to be obtained from your diet.
Not only do amino acids build keratin and collagen, which is essential for beautiful hair, but they also aid absorption of critical nutrients. L-lysine has been proven to aid the absorption of calcium, iron and zinc. It is also known as a treatment for cold sores.We all know that calcium is important for healthy teeth and bones, but it is also important for regulating hormones. Balanced hormones ensures stronger, thicker, healthier hair.
Lysine also stops conversion of testosterone to DHT by blocking 5-alpha reductase. DHT is the main cause of androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness.
A dermaroller is a hand-held device with a cylindrical roller and tiny micro-needles.
The needles create micro-perforations in the affected tissue. A healing process is induced by the perforations inflicted by the needles. This initiates the production of collagen, elastin and a boost in circulation. Collagen and Elastin are two building blocks that are vital for the formation of healthy skin and hair.
There is no significant damage done to the existing collagen.
Dermarolling can be done at home once a week without significant pain.
