Hair growth is a goal for many — here, a dermatologist weighs in on the best ingredients to promote length and volume and avoid shedding.

“Patients come to me with hair-loss concerns every single day — literally,” says Dr. Neera Nathan, a Boston-based dermatologist. “For years, I’d offer the same two or three treatments in my clinic — minoxidil, platelet-rich plasma and sometimes spironolactone. I’d never heard of plant-based ingredients that could actually help.” In 2020, Nathan was introduced to hair-care brand Vegamour, which launched at Sephora Canada this January.

“I was pleasantly surprised to learn that there is data showing that topical ingredients like caffeine, turmeric and red clover can stimulate hair growth.” In addition, Vegamour’s Gro Revitalizing Shampoo and Conditioner are formulated with Karmatin, a vegan alternative to keratin. “It coats the hair, making it instantly look thicker, and stays on for three or four washes,” she says.

Vancouver-based hair-care brand Xyon also offers products to “stimulate hair growth and reduce shedding, using natural DHT-blocking ingredients like saw palmetto,” says Dr. Simon Pimstone, clinician and founder of the brand. “DHT is a form of testosterone that can contribute to female pattern hair loss, and our Nourish Hair Oil is designed to reduce inflammation and lower levels of DHT in the scalp.”
