Algae extract and hair loss Posted by Kumar on Sun May 09 2010 06:30:50 AM 11

Algae extract is taken from the seaweeds. In many countries, it forms a major part in the staple diet as it contains necessary nutrients. Natural seaweeds are a rich source of iodine, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, vitamin A, B1, B6, B2, C and niacin. Such sea vegetables are used as natural remedies for baldness since they contain amino acids, vitamins and minerals. These nutrients are extremely essential for hair growth and the over-all health of the hair. Some algae extract which are used to fight hair loss are Himanthalia Elongata and Atlantic Kelp. These extracts store anti-oxidants to heal the scalp. Thus, algae extract help in the hair growth by:
Reducing the scalp inflammation caused by bacteria.
Reducing the activities on 5-alpha reductase which is responsible for hair loss.
Healing the damaged scalp.
Providing building blocks for the growth of new hair.
Adding shine and volume to the hair.
Providing the necessary nutrients to the hair.
