Science and research


Hair loss starts when the skin's papilla cells become inactive, so the solution is to reactivate them. CAPILIA LONGA PPF can induce the epigenetic restoration of the hair follicle, reactivating the activity of these latent dermal papilla cells and stimulating the regeneration of the hair follicle to produce new hair.

The main benefit of caffeine is that it can help stimulate hair growth from the roots during the initial stages of hair growth. It acts on the hormone DHT, which causes hair loss. DHT can interfere with the vitamins, proteins and minerals that help hair follicles to grow. Caffeine combats this by stimulating hair cells to produce more ATP, which is the energy that fuels hair growth.

Regardless of the brands of keratin shampoo, keratin shampoo is not like regular shampoo, as it goes far beyond the capabilities of the latter. Keratin smoothing shampoo cleanses the hair and removes build-up, but at the same time it strengthens the hair by strengthening the hair cuticles, which make up each hair shaft. And if you follow it with a smoothing conditioner, your hair will feel softer and smoother.

Biotin shampoos not only stimulate natural hair growth, but also help fight dryness, breakage and hair loss. Usually used in combination with other natural ingredients, biotin shampoo and conditioner help to thicken hair and stimulate new hair growth.

Rosemary is a medicinal herb used to treat a wide range of ailments, including skin irritations and hair loss. Rosemary oil is believed to have strong anti-inflammatory properties that promote healing of the skin and scalp. Rosemary oil has been found to improve hair growth in certain cases of hair loss including alopecia areata, androgenetic alopecia and psoriatic alopecia. Indeed, a comparative study investigating the effects of rosemary oil and minoxidil (the main ingredient in hair loss treatments such as Rogaine) on hair growth found that "no significant differences were found between the study groups". In fact, after six months, hair growth was similar in both groups. However, the rosemary oil group had less scalp itching.

As you know that collagen is found in many tissues in the body, you probably won't be surprised to learn that it's also found in hair. It is essential for maintaining hair strength and elasticity, and a reduction in collagen can lead to breakage and excess hair loss.This is especially true for people in their 30s, as this is when natural collagen levels start to decline, which can be particularly damaging to hair.
