Can a shampoo really help grow your hair? “Yes,” says Dr. Doris Day, a Manhattan-based dermatologist who specializes in hair loss, an issue that will affect 50 percent of women within their lifetimes.
While some hair loss is genetic and requires drugs or procedures to help temper (or even reverse loss), “There is a benefit to using shampoos that support scalp health,” says Dr. Doris Day. (She prefers formulas that are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, or hyaluronic acid.)
If you’re suffering from hair loss problems, Day tells patients to apply shampoo to scalp before showering, leave on for about 10 minutes, then rinse. This allows the ingredients to penetrate longer, she says. Here, some of our favorite formulas for happier, healthier scalps.
