Zulvera is an herbal shampoo made in India and exported throughout the world. It is reported to help with hair regrowth, improving the health of hair and contains only natural ingredients. There is no scientific proof that this shampoo does help hair regrowth, however the same can be said for all shampoos that make this claim.
The claims made by WellWorth Cosmetics, an Ayurvedic product manufacturing company, are to have produced a shampoo that will create renewed hair growth, stronger hair and restore hair follicles that are dying. The shampoo is safe to be used by both men and women of any age. Although these are there claims there has been no controlled evidence of this.
The shampoo is made from herbs such as sage, tea tree, chamomile, witch hazel and saw palmetto all of which have been used in herbal remedies for centuries. The use of these particular herbs is to nourish the scalp and give the hair follicles the best chance of producing healthy hair. Chamomile has anti-inflammatory effects and is an emollient, sage can be an antibiotic and a tonic, tea tree can help treat skin blemishes, witch hazel is an anti-oxidant and astringent used in skin care and saw palmetto is rich in fatty acids and a nutritive tonic.
This combination is said to help reduce dry skin and help with the natural oils. By keeping the scalp lubricated and free from dandruff the hair follicles will be healthier. One of the causes of baldness, particularly in men, is the effect DHT has on the hair follicles. It causes the hair follicles to shrink and die, by using Zulvera herbal shampoo the company are claiming to reduce the effects and encourage hair growth. The shampoo is supposed to be effective for the receding hairline, one of the first signs of genetic hair loss.
Some of the ingredients in Zulvera can be found in other shampoo products and do not seem to have negative results but there is no scientific proof as to the helping with hair renewal. Advertising a product with herbal ingredients will catch the eye of many who are turning to natural products whether it for eating or skin and hair care. Hair loss can be a sign of an underlying health problem and if there is more hair loss than usual professional advice should be sought.
A consultation with a hair specialist will look into why there has been abnormal hair loss. Those with a history of hair loss in the family, even if it is not their parents, will be at greater risk of going bald starting with a receding hair line. Although Zulvera claims to be able to help stop this process this has not been proven and the only two medications that have been approved, minoxidil and finasteride, are linked to many side effects of varying severity.
Many causes of hair loss can be rectified once it has been identified. Illness can bring on hair loss as the body’s natural immune system is trying to combat the bacteria it has fewer nutrients to send to the scalp. Medication whilst helping to cure will also have an adverse effect on the hair follicles. Fortunately, once the treatment has finished and the body’s system is back to ‘normal’ hair loss will stop and regain its growth pattern.
There is no doubt that how we look after ourselves will have a direct effect on general wellbeing. With the skin being the least important organ of the body, when there is a deficiency in the nutrients the body needs then it will suffer first along with hair follicles. Eating a well-balanced diet and exercise is important to hair growth and cannot be replaced by shampoos and conditioners. They need to work together.
By identifying the cause of hair loss recommendations can be made to reverse the cycle and that may well include the use of a shampoo with natural ingredients. However, this cannot be relied upon as there are many other factors to keeping a good head of hair including lifestyle, hair fashion, stress and a good sleeping pattern.
