Does shampoo for hair loss really work?

When the shampoo for hair loss has ingredients that have scientific sedimentation, such as baicalin, the sprouts of soy and wheat and anhydrous caffeine, it is able to stimulate the microcirculation of the scalp region and give good results when combined with other treatments.

At the first sign of hair loss, it is very common for people to seek more practical treatments that can be included in their daily lives. But some questions remain in the air: what actually stimulates hair growth? Is the fall shampoo included in the list of products that are really worth investing in?

According to dermatologist Dr. Claudia Marçal, a member of the Brazilian Society of Dermatology and the American Academy of Dermatology, we have many shampoos on the market to improve not only the issue of hair loss, but also redensification, protein gain, thickness and growth the wire.

“But before any type of treatment, the patient must always consult a dermatologist or trichologist who will make a good diagnosis of the problem.

Often this patient is going through a process of hormonal changes, nutritional deficiencies, changes in quality of life, sleep, stress, smoking, using alcohol in large quantities, eating poorly, periods of prolonged fasting, iron deficiency anemia , in short, there are several diagnoses that we must make in order to offer a multifunctional treatment, oriented, customized and based on scientific evidence, instead of placing a single product as an expectation of treatment ”, says the doctor.

That is, the anti- hair loss shampoo works – as an aid to the treatment prescribed by the doctor.

Why use a shampoo for hair loss? What to look for in the formula?

When the scalp is treated extremely efficiently, using products prescribed by the doctor, it becomes healthier and this will decrease the incidence of dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis and, consequently, hair loss.

In addition, the shampoo for hair loss helps in the elimination of residues, which can hinder the growth of the strands.

But it is extremely important to be aware of the product label. Many of them, according to the dermatologist, present themselves as “growth pumps” and are just “unsalted” shampoos, which in fact is only related to sodium lauryl sulfate, but they can have other salts, and do not have assets that really improve the fall.

There are, yes, some active ingredients that have scientific sedimentation in stimulating the microcirculation of the scalp region and the good cellular functioning, to really act in improving the quality of the area. Among them:


It is a flavonoid that protects against oxidative damage, slows cell aging and is capable of promoting the proliferation of microvessel endothelial cells, according to a study by the University of Turin, in Italy.

With this, there is an increase in blood supply that is essential for the growth of the wires.

Sprouted soybeans and wheat

Able to increase cell proliferation and stimulate cell metabolism, with results in hair growth according to a study published in the Journal of Applied Biological Chemistry.

Anhydrous caffeine

It is an active ingredient with a high penetration capacity in the skin that has the same principle as finasteride when it inhibits the enzyme 5 α-reductase, responsible for thinning the threads.

According to studies at the University of Lubeck, in Germany, caffeine is able to accelerate hair growth by 25%, in addition to acting in increasing the volume of hair, as it prevents hair cells from dying or going into a state of numbness.


Cosmedical’s Capellux capillary dermocosmetics line ,  developed with these three actives (baicalin, germinated soy and wheat and anhydrous caffeine) and has four products: a shampoo for oily hair, a shampoo for normal hair, a conditioner and a tonic .

By combining the ingredients in synergy, the Capellux Antiqueda Line helps to regulate the capillary cycle and, according to a clinical study carried out on 61 volunteers, demonstrated, in just three months, to reduce hair loss by up to 60.6% and increase density up to 59.3%.

In addition, there are a number of treatments that can be done in the doctor’s office, such as microneedling, LEDs, non-ablative fractional lasers, among others. And the doctor will also be able to indicate some products to use at home, such as caps or LED helmets with LLLT – Low Level Laser Therapy (Low Power Light Therapy) technology.

For the treatment of hair loss , these technological products, such as the Capellux cap or the Capellux i9 helmet , emit red light, which provides energy to the cells – which directly contributes to the nutrition and health of the follicles, stimulating hair growth .

Scientifically speaking, red light at the length of 660 nanometers provides energy, as the cell structure located in the membranes of the mitochondria (lungs of the cells) is stimulated to produce more ATP (energy).

“With more energy and nutrients, the cells operate in optimized conditions in the performance of their functions, which promotes an increase in the quantity and volume of the wires, which also become thicker”, explains dermatologist Dr. Jardis Volpe, a member of the Brazilian Society Dermatology. The procedure is comfortable and there is no heating of the skin.

This technology can also have its effect enhanced with the use of shampoos, conditioners and anti-fall tonics of the Capellux line. Thus, the Capellux cap or the Capellux i9 helmet still function as a drug delivery, that is, allowing greater penetration of the assets.

Therefore, the ideal is to wash with a Capellux shampoo for hair loss, use a conditioner of the same line and, with dry hair, use LED technology and then apply Capellux tonic or some topical medicine (such as minoxidil) prescribed by the doctor directly on the scalp.The answer will be even better, according to dermatologists.
