Why Most Hair Growth Shampoos Are Ineffective

My mom was suffering from severe hair thinning near the temple area, but since she started using groMD, her miniaturizing follicles have regrown thicker and stronger, and are almost three inches longer.

Since our nationwide (now worldwide) launch into salons and department stores, customer reactions and testimonials have been overwhelming. Spencer ‘Spex’ Stevenson can be seen interviewing two groMD users below. Why has our product revolutionized the hair loss industry? Why does groMD work when other similar products fail? Read on to know why we are crucially different.


GroMD contains many effective ingredients, but the ones that are primary for helping with hair loss and regrowth are the copper peptides and Saw Palmetto. Saw Palmetto is used to inhibit the alpha-5 reductase enzyme that is known to produce the dihydrotestosterone (DHT) hormone. DHT attaches itself to the roots of your hair follicles and causes them to shrink over time.

This is actually a natural process that would take decades, but because of genetic traits it happens much more quickly in some men and women. When the process speeds up, your immune system believes something is wrong and reduces blood flow to the area causing inflammation that will kill the follicle. By cutting off the production of DHT, you can control the amount of hair loss.

The groMD formula is also infused with amazing copper peptides. Copper peptides have shown to have major effects on the skin’s health and can also encourage hair growth. It can revitalize the scalp and remove the DHT that has seeped to the surface of the skin. The peptides can also rejuvenate your healthy hair as well, strengthening the roots and thickening the stems.

DHT-Blockers are Only Part of the Story

While DHT is the main culprit in hair loss, it’s just one of many symptoms observed in those with thinning hair. There are a variety of other factors that are largely ignored by most hair restoration shampoos, which we tackle with comprehensive ingredients. Some of the other contributing factors to hair loss include:

  • Calcification of blood vessels
  • Fibrosis of the scalp skin and hair follicles
  • Collagen remodeling of balding scalp tissue

The groMD hair restoration system does not merely reduce DHT levels, but also reduces inflammation and provides increased blood flow to hair follicles. When applied daily, groMD can help reduce and sometimes stop hair loss by allowing a little more circulation to get to your hair.

It is troubling that most hair loss medication and topical products fail to target the causes of hair loss that are furthest upstream – inflammation – nor do they resolve the chronic, progressive conditions that chronically elevated DHT can cause, such as calcification and fibrosis. GroMD works to reverse the effects caused by both calcification and fibrosis.
