The Best Natural Alternatives to Minoxidil
Hair loss (alopecia) is a health concern that affects both men and women. It is often a symptom or a result of lifestyle factors (i.e. hairstyles, heat or chemical hair treatments, poor diet, stress) or medical conditions (i.e. hormonal changes, autoimmune diseases, medical treatments).
With the advancement of science and technology, there are now several solutions to hair loss. But many of these solutions are also costly, so most people turn to other more affordable options. One of the familiar and inexpensive hair growth treatments used is Minoxidil.
An Overview of Minoxidil
Minoxidil (more popularly recognized by its brand name, Rogaine) is a topical liquid or foam solution applied to the scalp to promote hair regrowth. It is used to treat male or female pattern baldness and is most effective on adults under 40 years of age whose hair loss is recent.
This solution is meant to be applied usually twice a day or as recommended by a doctor. It should not be used more or less than what is directed. One should not use it on red, swollen, irritated, cut, or infected scalps. Doing so will cause the medication to be absorbed by the body, which poses serious health risks.
Minoxidil does not treat all hair loss concerns. It will not work on those with no history of hair loss (i.e. unexplained hair loss), those who experience hair fall in patches, or those whose hair loss is caused by another condition (whether lifestyle or medical).
Using this medication also comes with several possible side effects. The most common side effects include scalp irritation (like burning, stinging, or redness at the application site), hair growth in adjacent areas (such as your forehead), or changes in hair texture or color.
More uncommon and severe side effects are unwanted facial/body hair, dizziness, fast or irregular heartbeat, fainting, chest pain, swelling of hands and/or feet, unusual weight gain, tiredness, and difficulty breathing. Users should stop applying Minoxidil immediately if they experience any of these symptoms.
There is not much research as to how Minoxidil helps with hair growth. It belongs to a classification of drugs called vasodilators, which are used to treat heart failure and high blood pressure. It will also not cause permanent hair regrowth, and it must be used continuously for at least four months to a year before one can notice any effects.
Experts do not advise those under the age of 18 to use this product.
Our Natural Hair Growth Products
The search for effective, naturally-derived growth-specific cosmetics is a challenge for many. This is why we have produced our own expertly curated products guaranteed to work in 150 days or less (or get a 100% money-back guarantee).
Our products are comprised of a shampoo, conditioner, and hair serum – specifically made for men and women. All products are made with natural and 100% vegan ingredients. Each component is carefully chosen and has been scientifically tested to prove effective in regenerating hair by increasing activity in the follicles. Our formulas and products are developed, tested, and produced by our experts in Denmark.
Unlike the chemically-laden Minoxidil, naturally-derived hair care products do not cause scalp severe irritation and grave health conditions. With continuous use of our vegan and naturally-derived products, the only effects you will experience are stronger, fuller, and healthier-looking hair.
The Bio-Pixilin® Routine
We have concocted a specially trademarked Bio-Pilixin® Formula. This contains naturally-derived ingredients that strengthen hair follicle cells and improves the scalp's natural balance. And we have come up with a 3-step hair care regime to effectively utilize the formula’s properties and facilitate natural hair regrowth.
First, our Hair Strength Shampoo works to cleanse and nourish the hair and scalp. It does this by reducing the excess sebum (oil) in the hair and supplying it with essential vitamins. These, in effect, will enhance the thickness and increase the overall volume of the hair. It also moisturizes the scalp, adding silkiness and smoothness to the hair, leaving a pleasant eucalyptus aroma in its wake.
Second, the Hair Recovery Conditioner functions to supplement the shampoo in restoring and protecting each hair strand’s integrity. By enhancing the hair cuticle’s protective layer, the hair’s elasticity and overall strength are boosted. The conditioner also decreases excess oils while avoiding dryness to prevent split ends and damaged hair shafts. Using this product will bring out a healthier shine and stability to the hair with fewer tangles and less frizz.
Both the Hair Strength Shampoo and Hair Recovery Conditioner formulations contains no sulfate, silicone, or parabens.
And third, the Hair Growth Serum nurtures the hair and scalp and increases hair density. Its unique formula is designed to block Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and other hormones and stimulate blood flow to supply vital nutrients to the scalp. The overall effect of this serum works as an epigenetic reset for the hair follicles. This cycle supports the development of younger cells to reduce hair loss and promote hair regrowth.
The serum is incredibly potent and is not recommended for use by those under the age of 18. But like the shampoo and conditioner, it has no sulfate, silicone, or parabens.
When all three products are used in tandem and applied continuously, their effects on hair growth, density, and strength are evident within 150 days.
