Make A Resolution For 2018-To Address Hair Loss And To Do So Appropriately

Loyal Hair Restoration Laboratories’ Customers,

As we come to the end of 2017, we wish to extend gratitude to all of you.  This past year, tens of thousands of men and women around the world trusted us to help them in their quest to reverse hair loss.  We are proud of the daily feedback we receive from customers as to the dramatic improvements they are seeing with their hair by using our DHT Blocking Hair Loss Shampoo, 200 Diode Hair Loss Laser Helmet and/or 16 Diode Hair Loss Laser Comb.

As we approach 2018, be assured that Hair Restoration Laboratories is constantly investigating ways in which we can improve our products and offer new ones to assist in the reversal of hair loss and to regrow meaningful hair.  Soon, we will be announcing new products to compliment our existing product line that we are confident will be even more beneficial in treating hair loss.

For our existing customers, and to those who become new ones in 2018, we again ask that you approach the fight against hair loss with prudence.  Like you, we are constantly exposed to ads for vitamins, lotions and potions that “guarantee” to end hair loss and regrow hair.  The claims are exciting and we understand the temptations to try to such products.  We fully understand how distressing hair loss can be and how desperate many people feel looking for a solution.

As we have cautioned from the inception of our company, please do not fall victim to companies offering such “guarantees”.   Whether you utilize our products or those offered by other companies, stick with products that are supported by real, independent studies, are clinically-proven and, where appropriate, have the blessing of the FDA.   A miracle cure for hair loss will be on the front page of the New York Times, not mentioned in a hair loss forum or be offered in a tiny magazine ad.

So, for 2018, be patient and be prudent with whatever hair loss treatment regimen you use.  And, please remember, that we will continue to investigate and offer to you the best, non-prescription treatments to reverse hair loss and regrow hair that we can identify.

Happy New Year,

Hair Restoration Laboratories

What Is Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)?


Hair Restoration Laboratories offers what it firmly believes is the most effective low level laser therapy (LLLT) hair loss helmet available.  In order to best understand the potential benefits of our laser helmet, we want to make sure that you understand what LLLT is and how it can assist you in reversing hair loss.

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) 

Low level laser therapy (also called red light therapy, low level light therapy, cold laser, soft laser, biostimulation and photobiomodulation) uses infra-red laser beams to treat a variety of health conditions, one of which is hair loss. LLLT is a painless therapy that requires a minimal time commitment.  Studies establish that it decreases inflammation, increases local blood flow and stimulates hair growth.  When used correctly, it can be highly effective for hair restoration.

What Type of Hair Loss Does It Treat?

LLLT treats androgenetic alopecia, which is more commonly referred to as male or female-pattern baldness.  Androgenetic alopecia is a genetic condition and it is the most common cause of hair loss in both men and women. It affects 50% of males over the age of 40, and 75% of females over 65. People with androgenetic alopecia have a gene that makes them more sensitive to the effects of the androgenic hormone—Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT can build-up in the inner roots of the hair follicles and, in genetically-sensitive individuals, the DHT causes the hair follicles to get smaller and smaller. Eventually the follicles become completely dormant and hair growth stops completely.

How LLLT Works

There are three phases of hair growth: the anagen phase, which is the growth stage; the catagen stage, which is the transition stage where hair follicles begin to shrink; and the telogen phase, where hair follicles become dormant and shed. The stimulation from LLLT helps to shift hair follicles into the anagen phase (and therefore restore hair growth), in multiple ways.

LLLT uses a light that produces a specific wavelength (typically in the range of 630 to 670 nanometers) which has a unique ability to be absorbed by the molecules of the hair follicles. This type of light penetrates the scalp and stimulates the epidermal stem cells which are responsible for the regeneration of hair follicles. The increased blood flow that LLLT causes helps to increase the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles. LLLT stimulates metabolic processes necessary for hair growth and helps to prevent the build-up of DHT in the follicles.

What LLLT Can and Can’t Do

LLLT is highly effective at treating the weaker, thinner, wispier hair follicles, making the hair markedly thicker, stronger, and healthier. It’s also great at stopping hair loss in its tracks. LLLT only works if there is an active hair follicle however, and it cannot cause hair growth in hair follicles that are already dead (areas on the scalp where there is no hair at all). Trying to use LLLT in these areas is like trying to fertilize a garden that you forgot to plant – it simple won’t work (and no other medication or therapy will either). It is therefore best to start LLLT as earlier as possible, in order to obtain maximum hair restoration benefits.  Also, LLLT can be effectively used by both men and women.

What Is DHT & How Can The DHT Blocking Hair Loss Shampoo Help Hair Loss?


Thank you to the thousands of men and women who have been using, and benefiting from, the Hair Restoration Laboratories DHT Blocking Hair Loss Shampoo.  While there are hundreds of shampoos that claim to help with hair loss, what makes the Hair Restoration Laboratories DHT Blocking Hair Loss Shampoo different?  And what is DHT all about?

Male and female pattern baldness is an extremely common condition. It is well established that the main culprit behind genetic hair loss is  Dihydrotestosterone, abbreviated as DHT.  DHT is a sex hormone that is produced from testosterone.

When testosterone combines with 5-alpha-reductase (an enzyme involved in steroid metabolism), this results in the production of DHT.

testosterone to DHT

Unfortunately, DHT causes havoc for hair follicles.  It connects to the androgen receptors at the base of the hair follicles.  This leads to miniaturization of the hair follicles and, eventually, hair thinning and loss.


The miniaturization of hair follicles

In order to reverse hair loss, the DHT needs to be removed from the body.  There are certain medications that help reduce the amount of DHT from your body, but they are only prescribed for men (i.e., finasteride).  Even if you are taking these medications, supplementing them with a topical DHT blocker will boost your efforts to fight hair loss.  And if you are not taking such medications, or a woman, you can also help block DHT by the use of a shampoo that contains ingredients that can inhibit 5-alpha-reductase. As a result, this blocks DHT from connecting to the scalp’s androgen receptors and prevents hair loss and hair follicle miniaturization.

The Hair Restoration Laboratories DHT Blocking Hair Loss Shampoo contains a number of ingredients that studies establish have the ability to inhibit the activity of 5-alpha-reductase, thus helping to reverse hair loss and regrow healthier, stronger, hair.  A complete list of the hair loss fighting ingredients in the Hair Restoration Laboratories DHT Blocking Hair Loss Shampoo  can be found here: click here.

What are just a few of the special ingredients in the Hair Restoration Laboratories DHT Blocking Hair Loss Shampoo that studies confirm can help reverse hair loss?   Here are a few:

Salvia Miltiorrhiza Root Extract-Studies establish that this extract improves blood circulation to the hair follicle.

Astragalus Membranaceus Root Extract-Known for its adaptogen properties, this extract is rich is polysaccharides, which are nutrients critical to hair follicle health.

Camellia Japonica Seed Oil-In research studies, this extract has demonstrated potent antioxidant properties with the ability to inhibit the production of DHT.

Biotin (Vitamin H) –An essential B-vitamin that promotes hair growth and aids in overall hair health. This ingredient strengthens both the hair follicle and the hair shaft, from which the hair grows.

Soy Isoflavones-Studies establish soy isoflavones promote hair growth by increasing dermal levels of insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1).

Nigella Sativa Oil-Studies estbalished that sativa increased hair growth and was effective in treating telogen effluvium.

Hibiscus Rosa-sinensis Extract-Studies of this leaf extract promoted more hair follicles in the anagen (growth) phase.

Polygonum Multiflorum Root Extract-Studies show that it might be a highly effective anti-androgen through decreasing DHT amounts in your body through obstructing five alpha-reductase digestive enzymes.

Rosemarinus Officinalis Leaf Oil-Results showed that rosemary essential oil was just as effective a minoxidil. During the process, it helped the side effect of itchy scalp more successfully than minoxidil. Another study of rosemary leaf extract (different from the essential oil) showed it stimulated hair growth.

Phyllanthus Emblica-Studies confirm that this herb is a potent 5α-reductase inhibitor and hair growth promoter.

These are just a few of the many ingredients in the Hair Restoration Laboratories DHT Blocking Hair Loss Shampoo designed to help inhibit DHT production, reverse hair loss and restore healthier, thicker and stronger hair.  Be assured that we are constantly investigating cutting-edge studies on hair loss treatments and advancements.  Our DHT Blocking Hair Loss Shampoo will always contain all ingredients we can confidently identify as having a beneficial impact on fighting hair loss and hair thinning.

Who Is Hair Restoration Laboratories?

Welcome to the initial Hair Restoration Laboratories blog.  The purpose of the blog is to provide you a summary of the latest updates on hair loss research, products and any special promotions being run by Hair Restoration Laboratories.

For our initial blog, we are keeping it simple–Who are we?

Hair Restoration Laboratories was founded by real people, who, themselves, have dealt with hair loss for many years. Our company is based in New Jersey and was started because we know, firsthand, how distressing hair loss can be, particularly when you first begin to notice it.

Through our blog, newsletter, Facebook page, Twitter feed, etc., we hope to ease the worry, panic and embarrassment that the men and women who founded our company know all to well. Even more importantly, we want to bring you news and products which, after two decades of being involved in the hair loss industry, we firmly believe can help you reverse your hair loss and regrow stronger, thicker and healthier hair.

Understand that you are not alone. More than 50% of men and 40% of women will experience hair loss after age 30. It is important to act as quickly as possible when hair loss is first noticed. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to slow down or eliminate the hair loss and regrow your hair. Every day matters.

Please do not surf the internet looking for miracle hair loss cures. If such cures existed, they would be on the front page of every newspaper. No matter how tempting an advertisement may be, there is no lotion or potion being manufactured that can guarantee success in your fight against hair loss. Studies show that even minoxidil and propecia are very limited in halting hair loss and even more limited in regrowing hair.

The truth is that there are only a few options which have be proven to reverse the process of hair loss/thinning and regrow hair. In our newsletters, we will explain to you why men and women can suffer hair loss, the various options available to treat them, which options have been proven effective and which future options might help, as well.

We are on this journey together. We promise to bring you the best information and products we can identify to help you in this fight.
