Sigma Skin is a company specialising in hair and skin products for men and the Hair Growth shampoo it produces is decidedly aimed at men who want to prevent or slow down baldness. That said, it is also suitable for women to use, though its scent is definitely rather masculine.
The Sigma Skin shampoo employs a range of natural active ingredients and even the base ingredients are gentler on the hair than most commercial shampoos. It contains none of the most common detergents commonly found in most shampoos.
The active ingredients include sebum inhibitors such as biotin to protect the follicles from excessive sebum that can damage them and antioxidants / antifungals such as apple polyphenol. It also contains retinol, which helps with the absorption of minoxidil, the leading anti hair loss compound (which is not an ingredient of this shampoo.
Sigma Skin claim that clinical studies have shown apple polyphenol to be more effective than minoxidil in treating male pattern baldness, but as the tests were conducted on relatively small groups of men, further proof may be needed.
However, when used in conjunction with other hair loss treatments that contain minoxidil, the hair growth shampoo can certainly improve absorption of the active ingredient and significantly contribute to the treatment.
How to use Sigma Skin Hair Growth Stimulating Shampoo
Massage shampoo into scalp and leave for one to two minutes. Rinse and repeat, leaving for three to five minutes. Use the shampoo five times a week or more for best results. This product is recommended for use together with the other products in the Sigma skin hair growth range for optimal results
Will this hair product work for me?
No hair loss product is guaranteed to work, as hair loss can be the result of many different factors. However, this product has been shown to work on men in various stages of baldness and can therefore be suitable for treatment of thinning hair, traction alopecia, and other hair loss conditions as well. Note that the manufacturer recommends using this product as the first part of a three step system to stop hair loss.
