How Redensyl improves Hair Loss

Hair loss is a common problem that affects millions of people around the world. It can be caused by various factors, such as genetics, hormones, stress, diet, medications, infections, and environmental pollutants. Hair loss can affect one's self-esteem, confidence, and quality of life.

Whilst there are some treatments available for hair loss, ranging from topical solutions to surgical procedures these are often expensive and come with side effects. One of the latest innovations in the field of hair loss treatment is Redensyl, a cosmetic ingredient that claims to stimulate hair growth and reduce hair loss.

Redensyl is found within Nanogen’s Hair Growth Factor Serum, with its component ingredients listed in the Ingredients list.

What is Redensyl?

Redensyl is a patented blend of seven compounds, mainly derived from plants. The main active ingredients in Redensyl are:

  • DHQG (dihydroquercetin-glucoside): A polyphenol extracted from the larch tree that acts on the stem cells of the hair follicles to trigger their proliferation and differentiation into new hair cells. This ingredient is shown on Nanogen's labels as 'Larix Europea Wood Extract'.
  • EGCG2 (epigallocatechin gallate-glucoside): A polyphenol extracted from green tea that also acts on the stem cells of the hair follicles to activate them and protect them from inflammation and oxidative stress.
  • Glycine: An amino acid that is a major component of hair proteins, such as keratin.
  • Zinc chloride: A mineral that is essential for hair growth and health.

How does Redensyl work?

Redensyl works by targeting the hair growth cycle, which consists of four phases:

  • Anagen: The active growth phase, where the hair cells divide rapidly and produce new hair shafts.
  • Catagen: The transition phase, where the hair growth stops and the hair follicle shrinks.
  • Telogen: The resting phase, where the hair follicle remains dormant and the hair shaft falls out.
  • Exogen: The shedding phase, where the old hair is replaced by new hair.

Redensyl aims to increase the duration and frequency of the anagen phase, while reducing the telogen and exogen phases. This way, it promotes more hair growth and less hair loss.

Redensyl does this by stimulating the stem cells of the hair follicles, which are responsible for initiating and maintaining the anagen phase. Redensyl also protects the stem cells from damage caused by inflammation, free radicals, UV rays, and pollution.

By activating and nourishing the stem cells, Redensyl helps them produce more hair cells that form thicker and stronger hair shafts. Redensyl also helps improve blood circulation and oxygen delivery to the scalp, which further supports hair growth.

What are the benefits of Redensyl?

According to various studies conducted by Indochem Laboratories (the developer of Redensyl) and other researchers linked below, Redensyl offers the following benefits for hair loss:

  • Redensyl accelerates hair growth: Redensyl increases the number of hairs in the anagen phase by 9%, while decreasing the number of hairs in the telogen phase by 17%. This results in a net increase of 17 hairs per square centimeter after three months of use.
  • Redensyl reduces hair loss: Redensyl decreases the impact of the telogen phase by 16%, which means less hair shedding. It also reduces inflammation and oxidative stress in the scalp, which are common causes of hair loss.
  • Redensyl improves hair quality: Redensyl enhances the thickness, strength, and shine of the hair by providing essential nutrients such as glycine and zinc. It also moisturizes and softens the hair by adding glycerin.
  • Redensyl is safe and well-tolerated: Redensyl has not been reported to cause any adverse effects or allergies in clinical trials or consumer tests. It is suitable for all skin types and hair conditions.
  • Redensyl is easy to use: Redensyl is water-soluble and can be incorporated into various products such as shampoos, conditioners, serums, sprays, oils, or masks. It can be applied daily or as needed.

How to use Redensyl?

The product should be applied to clean and dry scalp and massaged gently for a few minutes or allowed to dry naturally. The product can be left on or rinsed off depending on the instructions.

The optimal duration of treatment with Redensyl is at least three months to see noticeable results. However, some users may experience faster or slower results depending on their individual factors such as age, genetics, health, diet, lifestyle, and hair condition.

Redensyl can be used alone or in combination with other hair loss treatments, such as minoxidil, finasteride, or hair transplantation. However, it is advisable to consult a doctor before starting any new treatment or changing the existing one.

How does Redensyl compare to other hair loss treatments?

Redensyl is often compared to minoxidil, which is one of the most popular and widely used hair loss treatments. Minoxidil is a topical solution that works by dilating the blood vessels in the scalp and increasing blood flow to the hair follicles. This way, it stimulates hair growth and prevents hair loss.

However, Redensyl and minoxidil have some differences in their mechanisms of action, effectiveness, and side effects. Here are some of the main points of comparison between the two treatments:

  • Mechanism of action: Redensyl works by activating the stem cells of the hair follicles and prolonging the anagen phase, while minoxidil works by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles and shortening the telogen phase.
  • Effectiveness: Both Redensyl and minoxidil have been shown to increase hair growth and reduce hair loss in clinical trials. However, Redensyl may have an edge over minoxidil in terms of increasing hair density and quality. Moreover, Redensyl may work better for people who are resistant or unresponsive to minoxidil.
  • Side effects: Redensyl has not been reported to cause any serious side effects or allergies, while minoxidil may cause some minor side effects such as itching, irritation, dryness, scaling, or redness of the scalp. In rare cases, minoxidil may also cause systemic side effects such as headache, dizziness, chest pain, palpitations, or edema.
  • Convenience: Redensyl can be used in various product forms and formulations, while minoxidil is usually available as a liquid or foam solution. Redensyl can also be used less frequently than minoxidil, which requires twice-daily application for optimal results.

An easier option for anyone with thinning hair

Redensyl is a promising hair loss treatment that works by stimulating the stem cells of the hair follicles and enhancing their growth and survival. It has been proven to increase hair growth and reduce hair loss in various studies. It is also safe, well-tolerated, and easy to use.

However, Redensyl is not a miracle cure for hair loss. It may not work for everyone or for every type of hair loss. It may also take some time to see noticeable results. Therefore, it is important to have realistic expectations and patience when using Redensyl.

If you are interested in trying Redensyl to improve thinning hair, you can find it in all the Nanogen Shampoos, Conditioners and in a more concentrated form in Nanogen Hair Serum. You can also consult a doctor or a dermatologist for more guidance and advice on the best treatment option for your condition.
