Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, is an essential nutrient that is well known for its ability to support strong, vibrant skin (scalp) and hair [1-4]. Consuming biotin regularly helps prevent the occurrence of scalp irritation and hair loss [4, 5]. Rosemary oil and tea tree oil target a substance that is associated with hair loss known as dihydrotestosterone (DHT) [7, 8]. Jojoba oil helps loosen and promote the removal of sebum from the scalp, which is a thick substance that is linked to hair loss in some individuals .
Coconut promotes skin health, including the scalp, and enhances the body's ability to prevent and/or repair UV-induced skin and hair damage [10-13].
D-Panthenol (vitamin B5), Argan oil, and Primrose oil have moisturizing properties that are beneficial for the skin, including the scalp, and it promotes healthy hair follicles [14-17].
Promotes hair growth [1-5]; Lesses thinning hair [4, 5]; Targets scalp irritation [4, 5]
Biotin boosts metabolism and functions as a co-enzyme that enhances the breakdown of proteins, carbohydrates, fats (fatty acids) and other nutrients that nourish the hair [1-5]. Fatty acids in particular, strengthen the protective outer layer of the body's cells, including those that make up hair follicles . Therefore, biotin promotes healthy hair growth by ensuring that vital nutrients are released from food and properly transported throughout the body (e.g. scalp and hair follicles).
A hormonal imbalance may cause certain enzymes such as 5-alpha-reductase may begin to convert testosterone in both men and women into a stronger substance called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Increased DHT levels leads to the accumulation of a thick, dandruff-like substance called sebum. Sebum can clog the roots of the scalp, which can subsequently disrupt nutrient transport to the scalp and hair follicles, hair loss. Rosemary oil and tea tree oil block DHT activity, thereby preventing the buildup of sebum and hair loss [7, 8]. Jojoba oil mimics the texture of sebum and this reduces the production of sebum on the scalp .
Coconut oil supports moisture retention on dry, irritated skin (e.g., scalp) and it helps targets skin inflammation [10-13].
D-Panthenol (vitamin B5) promotes wound healing, targets acne, and helps the body combat acne-related skin issues, including those which affect the scalp . D-Panthenol also helps nourish (mositurize) hair follicles, which supports hair growth and lessens hair loss .
In addition, Argan oil and evening primrose oil moisturize the hair and scalp, which helps restore volume, elasticity, and shine to thin looking hair .
