What’s the Best Shampoo for Hair Loss | 2019

There are several other shampoos listed below that are arguably just as good as DS Labs Revita — particularly the top 5 in this list, which are all extremely good shampoos.

    • Nizoral Anti Dandruff Shampoo

      Nizoral
      for male pattern baldness

      Around $11 for 3.5oz

      Please note: Nizoral is only the best shampoo for treating male pattern baldness. This is due to a high concentration of the ingredient ketoconazole. If you don’t have male pattern baldness, you should use one of the other shampoos in this list.

      • Contains 2% ketoconazole — the highest available concentration and therefore probably the most effective for fighting against male pattern baldness.

    Poll: What do you think is the best hair loss shampoo?

    [yop_poll id=”1″]

    What’s the best hair loss shampoo for men?

    Nizoral Ketoconazole Shampoo

    Most men’s hair loss is caused by testosterone interacting with 5-alpha reductase, which produces DHT. We know that reducing DHT reduces hair loss, so as a man the best thing you can do is get a shampoo that reduces DHT.

    Increased scalp DHT seems to result increased scalp inflammation, which may be one of the reasons DHT causes hair loss. So you also want a shampoo that contains ingredients that reduce inflammation, such as peppermint and ketoconazole.

    Lipogaine hair loss shampoo

    If you’re a man I’d recommend using Nizoral shampoo twice a week because it contains a high concentration of ketoconazole (2%) and something like Lipogaine, Revita or Wick & Strom Apex Crown the other days of the week because they contain a lower concentration of ketoconazole plus loads of other really ingredients.

    What are the key ingredients to look for in a good shampoo for hair loss?

    Ketoconazole

    DS Labs Revita hair loss shampoo

    The most effective ingredient against hair loss is ketoconazole. Ketoconazole is an anti-fungal agent commonly used in medicated anti-dandruff shampoo. However, it’s also thought to have DHT blocking properties and is widely used and recommended by hundreds if not thousands of members of the biggest hair loss forums.

    The most commonly used ketoconazole shampoo is Nizoral, which should only be used 2 or 3 times a week because it contains 2% ketoconazole. Ketoconazole is actually highly toxic, which is why it kills the bacteria that causes the funghi that causes dandruff. However, it’s not recommended to use it too frequently.

    In my opinion a really good compromise is to use DS Laboratories Revita or the RegenePure shampoo, both of which contain lower concentrations of ketoconazole, so can be used daily and also contain several other beneficial ingredients. All of these shampoos are featured at the top of this page, from where you can compare ingredients, prices and weights.

    Caffeine

    Revita hair loss shampoo

    It sounds like a gimmick but actually, studies have shown that topically applied caffeine may help reduce hair loss and even increase hair growth. Even a shampoo like Alpecin may be beneficial. However there’s a shampoo that contains a much higher dose of caffeine, which I’ve featured here on this page (the Majestic Pure Coffee Shampoo).

    Of the shampoos on this page The DS Labs Revita shampoo also contains caffeine. In fact Revita contains all the key ingredients for stimulating hair growth, which is why I feature it at the top of my list. However, it is also one of the most expensive shampoos on this list.

    The RegenePure, FolliOne and Wick & Strom shampoos also contain caffeine. You can view their full ingredients lists by scrolling up the page.

    DHT Blocking ingredients

    DHT is the most significant cause of hair loss. It’s the main cause of male pattern baldness, which is the most common form of hair loss. DHT is a by-product of the hormone testosterone (which is why men experience hair loss far more than women). When DHT reaches the hair follicles is causes them to gradually miniaturize, until they become dormant.

    There are several natural ingredients that are known to block the conversion of testosterone into DHT and this blocking is the basis of many hair loss treatments. Several ingredients are used in these shampoois to block DHT. If you’re suffering male pattern baldness, look for a shampoo that contains ingredients like:

    I also recommend taking a look at my lists of the best topical DHT blockers and the best natural DHT blocker supplements.

    What else should you look for in a hair loss shampoo?

    If you want to fight hair loss and help your hair grow you want a shampoo that contains ingredients that improve circulation in the scalp, such as niacin. You also need a shampoo that cleanses your scalp well, otherwise pores may become blocked, leading to hair loss — ingredients like salicylic acid help with this. Finally, you should look for ingredients that reduce DHT in your scalp because DHT causes hair loss. These are the primary three concerns. After that you can start to look for shampoos containing nutrients that help feed your hair or energize cells in the scalp.

    What to avoid in a shampoo

    You need a shampoo that cleanses your scalp well, but you should avoid shampoos with harsh chemicals like “sodium lauryl sulfate” — this is like a bleach, which after years of use may cause hair follicle miniaturization and may also be toxic if absorbed through your skin (though in small doses is safe). See organic shampoos that don’t contain sodium lauryl sulfate for more information.

    My review of hair loss shampoos — what is the best shampoo for hair loss prevention and hair growth promotion?

    I’ve listed above some of the best hair loss shampoos available. Where I’ve listed the benefits and drawbacks for each shampoo I have listed ALL the benefits and ALL the drawbacks (as far as I can see). So if there’s only one benefit, there’s only one benefit — likewise with the drawbacks. If you want me to look at any other shampoos, let me know in the comments.

    DS Laboratories Revita High Performance Hair Growth Stimulating Shampoo

    In my opinion the best shampoos out there are DS Laboratories Revita Hair Growth Stimulating Shampoo, RegenePure and Wick & Strom. DS Labs Revita shampoo ticks almost all the boxes. However, it’s very expensive. If $25 is a bit excessive (which it probably is for most people), you might be better off going for a natural or even organic shampoo that is isn’t specifically labelled as a hair loss shampoo. The problem with a lot of hair loss shampoos is they contain ingredients that may help promote hair growth, but to save money they’ve used cheap base ingredients like sodium lauryl sulphate.

    So if you’re not prepared to pay for the DS Labs Revita shampoo or any of my other top 5, it’s probably worth taking a look at my list of organic shampoos, which are cheaper and also contain many beneficial ingredients.

    It’s also worth checking out my list of ketoconazole shampoos, which contain a higher concentration of ketoconazole and my list of anti-DHT shampoos, which are specifically forumalted to block DHT.
