Rekze 24 Hair Loss Serum

Ingredients explained

I was surprised to find this is actually quite a good natural hair loss treatment, containing quite a few ingredients I’m familiar with, that have been shown in studies to increase hair growth. Below I explain how these ingredients work.

Castor oil

Castor oil contains a lot of ricinoleic acid, which increases the prostaglandin PGE2. PGE2 has been shown to increase hair growth by activating the Wnt pathway.

Menthol

Menthol is a natural anti-inflammatory and it increases the growth factor IGF-1, which has been shown to increase hair growth.

Apigenin

Apigenin has been shown to reduce the transforming growth factor TGFbeta 1. TGFbeta 1 causes the hair to transition from the growth phase top the resting phase, making the hair stop growing.

Oleanolic acid

Here’s another great anti-hair loss ingredient. Oleanolic acid has been shown to increase the growth factors IGF-1 and VEGF, both of which have been shown in studies to increase hair growth.

Sphinganine

Sphinganine is a chemical that’s completely new to me. According to one study, it’s a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor, which means it reduces DHT. DHT is the hormone that causes male pattern hair loss.

Astressin- B

Asstressin B is a CRF Receptor Antagonist, which may help prevent hair loss. However the research is very limited.

Cinnamon

I’m unsure about whether topical cinnamon is good or bad for hair. I’d remain cautious and consider avoiding it. From what I’ve read, topical cinnamon may reduce the growth factor VEGF and VEGF is essential for hair growth.

Ginkgo Biloba

Limited research suggests ginkgo biloba prevents the programmed cell death of hair follicles.
