Hello,

I'm looking for ready made shampoos/conditioners that promote hair growth, and I'm overwhelmed by reading forums and websites for products!  I'm working on the internal with my naturopath/accupuncturist, and using the KGF Serum and Sea Kelp Bioferment, and would like to add a shampoo that helps my dear folicles. Do the shampoos that say they have DHT blockers, etc, really work?  I'm looking at Nioxin, but I'm not sure about the ingredients, and at Lamas and Shen Min chinese herbal shampoos, and ahhhhhh!  Help!

And I don't want to make my own, UNLESS someone has a great recipe with specific instructions, amounts, and ingredients I can get here at SA or locally!  

Many Thank Yous, Maddisen

I switched my family to Avalon Organics shampoos (I've previously posted the ingredients and they were Hannah-approved!).  Then I add about 1 ml per ounce of Sea Kelp to them.  My husband's hair is actually growing back - with the help of the KGF serum, too - and my daughter's and my hair has completely stopped falling out.  It has been a wonderful combination for us.  Courtney and I both use plain Sea Kelp as a setting/styling gel, too.

The website is http://www.avalonorganics.com.  I find their products here in Atlanta at Harry's Farmer's Market (it's basically a giant Trader Joe's). 

HTH!

Trader Joe's itself also carries that line.

Shampoo's main purpose is to clean the hair.  It is on the scalp/hair for such a short time that if you add a lot of expensive actives you end up wasting money because they get washed down the drain.  Look for something that does NOT contain sodium lauryl sulfate or sodium laureth sulfate.  I also add Seakelp Bioferment to mine-got the idea from Tabetha/MrCrafty-and love the results.  Afterwards, I use a pretty generous dollop of Seakelp Bioferment and work it through my hair as a conditioner/styling aid.  About everyother day I mix a pea size amount of Phyto 9 into the SK before I put it on my hair.

Thanks all.

I will drive by Joe's and get the shampoo. I've seen it there.

Tabetha, can I ask you more about your experience with hair loss?  If you'd prefer, I'm happy to give you my private email address!  Are you using the KGF Serum along with your husband and daughter? And if so, how often?

I think mine started as a result of perimenopause and experimenting with bioidentical hormones, which I have stopped completely, and am now working with a naturopath/accupuncturist/herbalist to assist me as I go through this major passage of womanhood.

Am I allowed to post it here on the forum or do I have to do it by email?

You would need to ask Hannah, if you can post, if it is to a competitor site.

I finally got around to making my own hair growth serum last night and shampoo/conditioner.

I only put SKB in the shampoo and conditioner I have that have no SLS (you can purchase DIY shampoos with no SLS and conditioners bases with no SLS from other sites). I put in about a tablespoon in each 12 oz bottle. I'll let you know how that goes. The shampoo base I'm using does have Keratin in it, btw.

As for my serum, I will hold off sharing (some of the more expensive actives I purchased from SAS) until I see if it makes any difference. Some of the items those are:

Chrysine
Copper Peptides
SKB
SOD
MAP
Coconut Endosperm
Lutein
Kinetin

Plus some others. I hope I did not mix any incompatible items together. Trying to peruse this vast forum to find out what is "tender" in conjunction with other actives has kept me from experimenting for fear of ruining actives. I finally just took the leap and if it works fine, if not, then oh, well.

Coal tar shampoo?  I don't know of any that don't use SLS, though.

LCD stands for "Liquor Carbonis Detergens" or Coal tar.

-------"LCD functions as an inhibitor of enzyme catalytic activity by suppressing the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone through its ability to deactivate the co-enzyme NADP which is required by 5a-reductase in the above conversion process.
