#1 Ryo Hair Loss Shampoo For Oily Scalp, $19.90
People who suffer from oily scalps need to cleanse their scalps properly. This is because it is often the oil buildup in the scalp that blocks off hair follicles, leading to eventual hair loss. Popular Korean haircare label Ryo employs their proprietary technology GinsenEX that contains ginseng extract as well as a cocktail of different ingredients like green tea, ginger, camellia and pine needle to combat such problems.
#2 René Furterer Triphasic Shampoo, $39.90
René Furterer uses a blend of orange, lavender and rosemary essential oils to purify and clean the scalp, while pfaffia extract helps nutrients to reach the scalp and follicles. The oils are contained in microbeads, which burst when the shampoo is being massaged into the hair, for a deliciously invigorating experience. Finish off the treatment with the conditioner and hair serum from the complementary line. This shampoo is paraben-, SLS- and silicone-free.
#4 Briogeo Blossom & Bloom Ginseng + Biotin Volumizing Shampoo, $35
Briogeo uses ginseng, biotin and vitamin B5 to stimulate the follicles and aid blood circulation and hair growth, while maltodextrin volumises and separates each strand to make your mane look beautifully full and thick. This shampoo is sulfate-, silicone- and paraben-free. The line also consists of a conditioner and a hair spray to complete your hair care and hair styling regimen.
#5 DrGL Cleanser Hair Anti-Hairloss, $98
Created by Singaporean aesthetics doctor Georgia Lee, this shampoo is fortified with amino acids, vitamins, manganese and glycine soja oil to strengthen hair, fight free radicals, treat inflammation and promote hair growth. The proprietary formula also promotes blood circulation to help follicles receive all the nutrients they need.
#7 Klorane Quinine Shampoo, $18.90
Klorane employs a cocktail of quinine and B vitamins to support microcirculation, hydrate the hair shaft, reduce sebum, strengthen keratin and increase metabolic energy to revitalise and fortify the scalp. It can also strengthen and detangle hair strands. Finish the haircare routine with their conditioner and scalp serum from the same range.
#8 PHS Hairscience FEM Fortify Shampoo, $48
PHS Hairscience uses Korean botanical essences and stem cells to target early signs of hair loss in women. It does so by unclogging pores, removing sebum and energising the scalp. PHS Hairscience also has a thickening range for people who suffer from severe hair loss as well as a collection for men. Follow up with the matching conditioner and scalp tonic for a more complete treatment.
#9 Plantur 39 Phyto-Caffeine Shampoo, $18.90
Like Alpecin, Plantur 39also uses active ingredient caffeine as its main force against hair loss. Caffeine is said to inhibit the enzyme that converts testosterone (found in both sexes) into a chemical that stops hair follicles from growing (i.e stopping hair growth and renewal). As with caffeine shampoos, leave it on for two minutes before rinsing it out to allow the compound to penetrate the scalp.
