What is the Best Serum for Hair Growth? Reviews and Ratings

There are a lot of hair growth serums on the market today – some work, some don’t and some actually can cause serious side effects if you aren’t careful with the ingredients list. This article is designed to help you make a decision on what hair growth serum is best for you.

What is a Hair Growth Serum?

A hair growth serum is a mixture of oils or liquids with the intention to help hair growth; at least that is how they are marketed to the public.

Some hair growth serums try to provide hair nutrients for hair growth, some try to stop the root cause of hair thinning to prevent further hair fall or hair loss, and some try to artificially enhance hair to make it appear thicker.

Are Serums Good for Hair? and Hair growth?

The answer to this is yes and no – some serums can actually help support hair growth, and possibly regrow hair to an extent depending on your condition – whilst other serums can cause dangerous side effects and even cause hair loss.

How do Serum Work on Hair?

There are many ways a serum will work on hair – one way is artificial enhancement. Many companies do this and this does not actually help hair growth. It only works by expanding the hair shaft for a few hours after application, and makes hair seem thicker. The problem is, this can have serious side effects (see next heading for side effects).

The other way serums work, is by targeting inflammation in the scalp, as well as providing vital nutrients that can pass the walls of the scalp for the hair – this is not always possible, and some companies try to do this, but it does not always work – as some ingredients residue is too large to pass through the epithelial wall.

You have to decide what type of hair density you want – but be aware of side effects as well.

Hair Growth Serum Side Effects

Hair growth serum can have negative side effects if you choose the wrong one – or if you use it incorrectly.

The ones you need to worry about is the hair growth serum that tries to say it grows hair, or helps hair growth, but actually only artificially enhances hair growth – this is because those chemicals can actually increase inflammation in the scalp, and cause hair loss to speed up.

This is why we created our own reviews for hair growth serums, and listed the ones that do not cause this inflammation, and have no negative side effects.

Ingredients

There are various ingredients in hair growth serums from various companies – some do not disclose those, whilst some do due to laws in the country they were produced – some ingredients are great, whilst some are dangerous.

“Essential oils in serum are a big problem, they burn hair follicles – don’t buy serums with essential oils in them”

If the company is not showing ingredients clearly, it does not mean it is a negative thing – some companies need to protect the ingredients, and they cannot make it a patent due to using only natural ingredients (only artificial ingredients can be patented) – so do not think that this will always be a negative – but the good companies will allow you to contact them to ask if it contains an ingredient you may be allergic to – for example, if you are allergic to nuts, you can contact the company and tell them, and they will tell you if this is okay for you or not.

The best thing to make sure – if a serum contains essential oils, and boasts about it – stay away from it – essential oils will burn hair follicles and will prevent hair growth contrary to what everyone seems to say, they are a neurotoxin, and this causes damage to hair growth and increases inflammation – it can also cause headaches.

 

Hair Growth Serum Reviews

There are so many companies trying to sell a hair growth serum, we decided to review each serum and let you know if this is good for your condition or not – each serum has a target market, and they aren’t all equal, even if they all say hair growth serum, some actually are trying to artificially enhance hair, but not actually grow quality hair or longer hair.

Immortals Oil Review – Rated as the Number 1 Hair Growth Serum/Oil

Website: ImmortalsOil.com

This serum has been reviewed as the most effective serum for hair growth – we will update this post if this changes – all posts on humancure are constantly updated.

Whilst this is not labeled fully as a serum – it does come in the same category as this is a liquid that you apply on the scalp for preventing hair loss, as well as helping new hair growth – it is also for people looking to increase hair growth rate, and increase hair length at a faster rate.

This serum is also great for dry and damaged hair as it focuses on re-building the quality of hair – if you already have good hair, it will produce increase the rate of hair growth speed (so yes, you may complaint you have to go to the hair salon more often).

From the first hand study conducted as well as reviews gathers, this is the number one rated serum for hair growth and preventing hair loss, including increasing hair length at the fastest rate possible – but you need to know how to use it – which means you need to massage in the oil/serum, after application for a few minutes to really get to work.

We liked this aspect of the company – as they offered support to our users who were testing the product.

Well Grow Serum Review – Rated No.2 Hair Growth Serum

This is the next growth serum that we rated as one of the best – although we will always vouch for Immortals oil, the Well Grow Serum is rated highly because they focus also on hair growth and hair stimulation – whilst the results of before and after can vary, and probably depend on each individual trying it, it can possibly help with hair growth or at least providing the best nutrients to hair.

We won’t recommend only using a serum for hair growth however, and that a regime is always needed when you are trying to naturally help hair growth.

Hairgro Serum Review

Whilst the ingredients of this serum do have some history with hair loss and hair growth – this combination and topical application will not get any results in terms of hair growth.

Many companies seem to add a bunch of ingredients known for hair growth, and create a product – they usually rely on the marketing of the ingredient in question, instead of creating a product that works – whilst we aren’t saying that Hairgro Serum did this, but it is worth mentioning this as this is what it looks like.

Cake Hair Growth Serum Review

Cake hair growth serum contains essential oils which will burn hair follicles – so if you actually want to cause hair loss, then please go ahead and buy this – please do stay away from this, as this is probably the most harmful product we have come across in our reviewing history – and the only reason it is mentioned is for the safety of our readers.

Essential oils are often marketed for hair growth – the problem is – it’s a neurotoxin – so whilst it can seem to help in a few applications – regular use will actually cause the opposite effect due to the burning effect of essential oils (even if it is heavily diluted).

Kerastase Hair loss Serum Review

Kerastase hair loss serum is also one of those that target artificial hair growth – which means its not actually trying to keep hair healthy – it’s the opposite, as it contains ingredients in it that will increase inflammation.

People do seem to like the short term effects of Kerastase Serum, but we recommend that if you do use it, don’t use it daily, or too often as this will cause scalp calcification and in turn, hair thinning. You should stick to the top 2 products we mentioned here as there are too many serums out there to review and rate – and most of them have similar ingredients and try to compete by good looking packaging, which actually won’t help solve or help hair thinning.

 

 

10 Ways to Naturally Thicken your Hair!

 

The best way to naturally thicken hair is doing things as part of a regime – this must be understood. The aim is of this article is to illustrate to you, that targeting your overall body health is the key factor here – and that a regime specifically designed for hair growth, combined with some products, oils, and scalp massage, will do wonders for getting thicker hair and stopping hair falling out naturally.

IMPORTANT UPDATE (Feb 2018) – From old studies on the causes of hair loss in men and women, we have found that inflammation to be a key factor which actually makes hair fall off; so if you are a man with hair loss, chances are you have high DHT which then causes inflammation to your scalp which then causes hair loss – the inflammation is the keyword, not DHT – so if you are a women, with hair thinning, then your hormone or stress levels are causing your inflammation – use the holistic health regime from below – but also do 2 extra things:

Massage Scalp everyday before bed for at least 10 minutes a day (yes really!) – You can use a scalp massager machine, or finger tips, but consistency is what gets results (results can mean, stopped hair loss to new hair regrowth depending on various factors).

Use the Taoist Soap to help stop Hair loss (found here: www.Taoistsoap.com and allow your body to regenerate hair by itself (if you make the right conditions, you will regrow hair – the myth about hair being lost once gone is nonsensical, because the body is constantly replicating itself and renewing itself, the right conditions allows it to renew whatever that needs to be renewed!) – this soap helps stop inflammation, and is a great tool to assist in this – that said, do the regime below, to get powerful renewal of the body (including hair).

1. Aerobics to Increase Hair growth rate by 40%

cardio for thickening hair growth

 

An intense jogging routine where you jog 3-4 times a week – will increase detox, increase circulation and break down fat within organs – this in turn will produce better hormones, balanced hormones that help hair growth.

Increased circulation is the main objective here. If the body is not being taken care of, over time, circulation decreases, and hair is the first to go; capillaries are the thinnest blood vessels, and can easily stop/reduce circulation if aerobic activity is not maintained – the human body is actually not designed to stay sitting for more than 30 minutes, anywhere!

Even Eastern Medical books, talk about how lack of circulation is the cause of almost all disease and illness – it shows a lot when you think of it on the grand scale of things.

2. Yummy Herbs and Vitamins to Increase hair growth thickness by 30%

There are a few natural remedies that you can use to thicken your hair naturally – they are as follows:

NIACINThis is a powerful vitamin that is already present in the body. The best thing about this is that it increases blood circulation to the “edges” of your body (especially areas which have blocked circulation) – including scalp. It is important to understand that Niacin produces a flush effect on the body – this is when the blood is forced to enter capillaries in the skin and scalp and you start to feel warm. Some people buy the “non-flush” version, but this version does NOT WORK – avoiding the flush is avoiding circulation going into your capillaries – flushing IS the medicinal effect you need.

Depending on your condition, you can take it for up to 18 months and should see positive results. It helps detox your scalp from plaque built up in the capillaries, thus allowing free blood circulation to your hair and skin.

Bonus: Try to start with 50mg Niacin dosage, and after two weeks, take double the amount, daily – please be aware that this may give you a flush, and this is a good sign that it is working. If you don’t get a flush, keep increasing dosage after every week by 100 mg; whatever you do, do not buy non-flushing type, as this is not effective and is dangerous for the liver and kidney.

B-Complex – Most illnesses and misalignments in the human body today, occur from one thing – STRESS! You heard it before, and I am repeating myself because this is important. Stress levels in the whole world have increased – Whilst good levels of stress is healthy, and needed for any life form to grow, extreme amounts of it will cause disease – see study here on stress and disease.

Due to the mind body connection, when stressed, your body produces stress hormones, which if released over long periods of time, damages the body; first thing to go are secondary processes in the body, like hair (as it’s not vital for the body to survive).

Not only that, but stress tightens the scalp region (have you ever seen a stressed out mom’s facial muscles?) – this reduces blood circulation, and overtime, will affect the skin and hair as well as organs in that area. Taking B-Complex vitamins enables the body to not only better cope with stress, but also upgrades the body’s nervous system, that normal stressful situations, don’t seem bad anymore; allowing you to make better decisions and staying mentally and physically healthy at the same time (that’s way more than 2 birds than one stone!).

Stinging Nettle Extract: This is a powerful yet cheap way to detox your body from excess hormones like DHT and other hormone residue that builds up in the liver – this is what will help prevent a further imbalance – and indirectly reduce inflammation, the root cause of hair loss. It is essential to take this, liquid or capsule form – but make sure you aren’t allergic to this.

 

2a. Coolest Oils for Thickening New Hair Growth

scalp massage for hair growth

There are very few oils that help with hair growth – all the popular oils like castor oil, olive oil are not good for long term use, and will bring short term results as long term use causes another imbalance – such as coconut oil is great, but it will dry your hair and then cause the hair problem to worsen, so you can use coconut oil but not everyday, just once in a while.

The only oil that we have found that is very effective, and that holds the right amount of potency to help with the hair growth process and stopping inflammation is called the Immortal’s Oil – they deliver worldwide – the oil can last a very long time so ordering just 2-3 bottles will be enough if you are really serious about hair growth. 

Using the Immortal’s Oil for daily scalp massage is one of the best and fastest ways to getting improved quality hair, thicker and faster growth as well – it’s also used by people who are trying to grow longer hair and their hair isn’t growing past a certain length.

If you don’t want to buy – just at least make sure you are doing scalp massages – the scalp health is key to hair health.

 

2b. Protect hair follicles with antioxidants

The direct reason of hair actually falling out of the hair follicle is solely due to inflammation of the hair follicle (caused by DHT) – Many people attempt to resolve this problem by attempting to reduce DHT, and this does not always solve it, nor is the right method of resolving such a problem. The problem should be resolved by stopping inflammation to even occur and this can be done by three ways:

Eating foods high in antioxidants; highest on your list should be Spinach and Kale (in their raw form). They contain zeaxanthin, a very powerful antioxidant that will stop inflammation from occurring. Eat a handful with every meal.

Reducing or completely stopping high sugar intake; by stopping sugar and high carb intake, you are literally taking away the food that inflammation feeds from; this includes white sugar, brown sugar, all forms of breads and rice. This is only for a certain period of time, 3-6 months or 1 year depending on how servere the problem used to be.

– Supplementation on powerful super-antioxidants; Astaxanthin is a red pigmented super-antioxidant that is found in marine life. It actually has the ability to completely restore a cell’s health if taken in enough quantities (4mg 1-6 times a day).

The other super-antioxidant is Zeaxanthin, which was mentioned above (found in Spinach and Kale). It is best to take this with Spinach for highest absorption rate (and best value for your money).

See this article on the aging process of hair, and how they grey prematurely and the main cause of this is oxidation (which antioxidants resolve if you eat and supplement from them).

 

3. Chemical Shampoos need a kick in the butt

Throw away your current shampoo and conditioner bottles; they are most likely filled with hair killing chemicals. Go for all natural shampoo with only a few natural ingredients. Its best to buy a few different bottles to see which one best suits your hair. Beware of companies advertising as all natural, but hiding the ingredients in some legal form or another.

I suggest if you can afford the best of the best around, to use the Taoist soap as your new antiinflammatory tool- it will help detox your skin, and allow your hair follicles on your scalp, to rejuvenation and help regrow hair – don’t worry, it will not grow hair on places there shouldn’t be hair.  The way it works is simply by allowing increased blood circulation (and stopping inflammation) as well as advanced yet gentle detox – combine this with a daily hair massage regime, you have a master hair re-growth plan!

It is hard to find companies that are actually selling products that are genuine – so I cannot say enough on how powerful the Taoist soap really is – you have to try it for yourself. Best part is, you don’t have to use it everyday, and you still can incorporate it with other shampoos if you really wanted to – I personally use it once or twice a week, and this makes the soap very long lasting (at least 6 months!).

4. Stop Caffiene Intake to Increase Circulation and push Kidney function

Caffiene used to be hyped as something that increases circulation – their were even caffiene shampoos that were created by many german companies – but the truth is, caffiene is a vessel constrictor, which means it reduces circulation over time – especially if you are a regular drinker, it is a good idea to cut it out for some time – 1-2 months is a great start.

Caffiene also is a stimulant which stimulates the adrenal glands – when adrenal glands go through such a thing long term, this drains the kidney function – in Eastern medicine, the kidney function also controls the hair growth on the head – this is why a healthy kidney means youthful appearance, including hair growth.

It is important to note, even green tea has caffiene – so find an alternative drink, which does not have it – you will reap the benefits – do not ignore this point, as it is one of the most powerful points and most ignored.

5. Stop using hair dryers, gels and wax

If you are really serious about preventing any further hair loss and regrowing hair, I hope you will really consider doing this. It is vital that you stop putting in any chemicals in your hair that may be causing more damage than anything else. If you do have to use styling products, use water based natural wax; and only use very small amounts.

Paraben and fragrance free shampoos will help prevent damage, although they will not help stop inflammation – hence the reason why we reccomended the soap earlier in this post.

6. Stop Artery Clogging foods to thicken hair

Your arteries get clogged from years of abuse of over eating fat and deep fried foods (vegetable based oils); stop it. Don’t take any deep fried foods and avoid fats for at least 1 month. After that, you may occasionally have the foods on parties or dinners, but be very careful; ignoring this point can sabotage your hair re-growth – and overall health.

Replace your cooking oil with sesame based oil (non-toasted) or Grape seed oil. Cooking vegetable oil (including olive oil) are found to be more damaging when heated up – so keep them only for salad use, rather than use for cooking – cooking changes their structure of these oils as they have a low boiling point.

The blood vessels in the scalp are so thin, that they get blocked very easily – fatty and rich foods tend to create more fat deposits, and can easily block a lot of vessels in the scalp as they are very thin – this is why scalp massage works wonders, even 10 minutes a day.

7. Weight loss for preventing Hair loss – yes its true.

This one might have seemed obvious, but getting into shape and losing the excess fat will help unclogging your capillaries leading to increased circulation, which will greatly help in hair re-growth; especially if done with the rest of the activities listed here.

If you already do this, this means you have to do something which you don’t do – for example someone who is always jogging, would need to do some weights and yoga – someone who is always doing yoga will need to do jogging and similar cardio – because if you have hair loss at your current state, and you already do jogging for example – that means your cardio health is good, but your muscular and hormonal health has not been taken care of, this applies to men and women.

We have to understand that hair thinning is a complex problem – it doesn’t get resolved by just doing one activity – you have to carry out a regime.

8.Take a Chill pill my Friend, its not the end of the world

I have notived that a lot of people who suffer from hair thinning also have a personality similarity – in the sense that they will handle stress in a certain way – by not handling it and getting stressed out – also some of them have highier rates of anxiety – worrying about a situation faster and more intensely than other people would.

It is vital to understand this – because in Eastern medicine – your hormones are your emotions – they both control eachother – we already know this from steriod use affecting emotions – the same is true with having certain emotions which induce certain hormones – its the body mind effect – obviously if you have an emotion, your body has released those chemicals for you to feel that way – this is why you can control your body and its emotions – relax, things will work out.

Take a B complex vitamin a day (Solgar is a good brand for this) to help you – but results show in long term – you still should actively involve yourself in managing your thought patterns as they directly affect your emotions, and this will directly affect your hormones – and hormones will directly affect the scalp and body condition.

9. Control your Urges to Mate to thicken hair naturally

Sexual activity releases a lot of essential body fluid of the body – in Eastern medicine, this drains Kidney energy when done too much – but when you are already losing hair, it is a good idea to manage this, and control sexual activity for a time.

This even applies to when you are sick, or feeling unwell – controling sexual activity will help you recover faster – if you want scientific studies, then start now, and test on yourself – boxers knew this, and this is why weeks before a tournament they did not have sexual activity of any kind to build up their strenght.

 

 

10. Massage your head to remove plaque from capillaries (Vital for regrowth)

Massage your scalp up many times a day everyday to increase scalp circulation – This forces new capillaries to form, as well as unblock previously closed capillaries – allowing the hair follicles to rejuvenate and start producing hair – and eventually, thicker hair.

Of course, if many times a day is too much, then just do it before you sleep for at least 15-30 minutes – and then, in the morning, use the Taoist soap, and rub it deep into the scalp and leave it in for at least 3 minutes. You do not need to massage it with oil every time – in fact, doing it without the oils is just as good, especially when done regularly over a long period of time.

When you take care of the scalp health, you naturally take care of the hair follicle – and you grow thicker hair.

12. Heal your Digestive System for encouraging hair regrowth naturally

It has been known for years that your digestive system is the first line of defense, and a major part of your body’s immune system, if this is damaged, your body will focus on keeping that part of it alive, and leave out less important functions, such as hair and skin regeneration.

The chances are, that if you are on a western diet, which mixes your meat and carbs together during meals, the stomach loses its ability to absorb nutrients; so even if you are eating all the right foods, you may not be absorbing them.

The way to reset this is by adding Bone soup into your diet – as this is the most powerful soup you can make for regenerating your stomach.

There is a Chinese proverb used in acupuncture “if the stomach is at ease, so is the mind” – this is also an important aspect in Eastern medicine, and will be the best way to grow thicker hair naturally.
