Lets look at the science behind Dr. Brown’s Hair Growth Serum
Black Sesame –contain essential fatty acids such as omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 which promote hair growth. Sesame seed oil stimulates hair growth by nourishing, conditioning, and promoting a healthy scalp.
Licorice Extract - The licorice shampoo has excellent cleansing ability, as well decreases the presence of harmful bacterial and fungi on the scalp
Angelica - Angelica sinensis notably decreases hair cell death, along with a significant change in the expression of cleaved caspase-3 and the ratio of a pair of apoptosis-associated proteins: Bcl-2 and Bax. Also, A. sinensis inhibited the nuclear translocation of NF-κB, the phosphorylation of IκB-α, the phosphorylation of three mitogen-activated protein MAP kinases, and the activation of c-Jun with decreased TNF-α.
Green tea extract - is rich in catechins . These catechins help in repressing DHT or dihydrotestosterone, which is the main cause for hair loss.
Sea buckthorn seed oil - Due to it’s high levels of essential fatty acids and vitamin A, this nourishing oil can help support scalp health. If you have a dry, flaky scalp you may want to try out these products! The vitamin E in sea buckthorn oil also helps with scalp circulation, supporting hair growth and conditioning
Grape Seed Extract - After an extensive search, we discovered that proanthocyanidins extracted from grape seeds promote proliferation of hair follicle cells isolated from mice by about 230% relative to controls (100%); and that proanthocyanidins possess remarkable hair-cycle-converting activity from the telogen phase to the anagen phase in C3H mice in vivo test systems.
Ginko - Ginkgo biloba (GBE) had the inhibitory effects on blood platelet aggregation, thrombin activity and fibrinolysis, thus increasing blood circulation and increasing hair growth
Aloe - contains something called proteolytic enzymes which repairs dead skin cells on the scalp. It also acts as a great conditioner and leaves your hair all smooth and shiny. It promotes hair growth, prevents itching on the scalp, reduces dandruff and conditions your hair.
Polygonum multiflorum - extract promoted hair growth by inducing anagen phase in telogenic C57BL6/N. In Polygonum multiflorum extract treated group, we observed increase in the number and the size of hair follicles that are considered as evidence for anagen phase induction. Immunohistochemical analysis revealed that earlier induction of β-catenin and Shh were observed in Polygonum multiflorum extract treated group compared to that in control group.
Ginseng - exhibits therapeutic potential for hair growth and preventing hair loss by preventing the apoptosis of dermal follicle papilla cells. Inhibits 5α-reductase enzyme, decreased DHT, Increase Proliferation activation: WNT (wingless-type MMTV integration site family member), Shh (Sonic hedgehog), Gli (glioma-associated oncogene homolog), VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor), EGF (epidermal growth factor), AKT/PKB (protein kinase B), ERK (extracellular-signal-regulated kinases) and other growth factors
Pantothenic acid - that aid in cell metabolism, without this vitamin, your hair follicles will not get the nutrients they need to function properly.
Niacin - improves the blood circulation to the scalp, which aids in faster and thicker hair growth
Azelaic acid 5α‐reductase activity which blocks from conversion from testosterone to DHT, thus preventing destruction of the hair follicle.
