HAIRMETTO is a plant based natural product designed to combat the effects of hair loss caused by hormone imbalances in both men and women. Androgenetic Alopecia affects an estimated 50 million men and 30 million women in the US alone. In men, the hair recedes, affecting a large area of the scalp. In women, the hair becomes thinner overall and the hairline does not recede. HAIRMETTO was created from the need to have drug and chemical free solutions to hair loss without drug related side effects. We are a family run business, hand crafting each batch with individual care, using only the highest quality raw materials, extracted from the plant so as to retain its therapeutic properties. This topical oil is applied directly to your roots, left on to absorb, delivering the nutrients to the follicle instead of circulating the entire body.

Its anti-seborrhoeic properties regularizes sebum production in the scalp. When sebum production is irregular, the skin can be flaky, dry or greasy; in any case creating an unhealthy environment for hair growth. Its antiseptic properties allow it to prevent and inhibit growth of any topical skin infections, including infections caused by seborrhoea. Poor circulation also contributes to hair loss, and Cedarwood oil promotes increased circulation, promoting hair growth and strengthening hair. Its antifungal properties protect hair follicles, leading to stronger, healthier hair. DHT has got its grip on the follicle Prior to understanding the prevention of male pattern baldness, its essential to understand the root cause of hair fall caused by DHT first. Testosterone is a powerful and essential sex hormone. In men it is the main sex hormone and also an anabolic steroid. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a by-product of testosterone and is an essential androgenic hormone responsible for the formation of male primary sex characteristics, essential during puberty. Testosterone converts to DHT with the aid of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase (5-ar). It is scientifically proven that DHT is the root cause of hair loss in adult men leading to a condition known as androgenic alopecia (AGA) generally termed as male pattern baldness. Although the exact mechanism by which DHT leads to male pattern baldness is not fully understood by science, it does initiate a process of follicular miniaturization in which the width of hair shaft starts reducing gradually, making hairs thinner. This process of thinning continues until hair actually falls away. Currently, there are oral drugs and medications that will block DHT, along with topical chemicals that you can apply to your scalp. However these come with undesirable side-effects. There is a natural solution – HAIRMETTO, a plant based oil blend of saw palmetto and pumpkin seed to provide the perfect combination to block DHT and nourish the roots without drug related side effects. SAW PALMETTO (Serenoa repens) Saw Palmetto is a tropical palm-like small plant mostly found in North America. Extract derived from its berries is highly rich in fatty acids.Essential fatty acids are required for the proper function of every cell in the body, increasing the absorption of vitamins and minerals and properly nourishing hair, skin and nails. They must be obtained through the diet as the body does not make them naturally.Saw Palmetto has been widely accepted as a very effective herbal treatment to reverse hair loss and treat conditions like alopecia. It is scientifically proven that excessive levels of DHT is the root cause of hair loss in adult men. DHT causes hair loss by attaching to hair follicles and shortening their growth phase. Over time, DHT causes hairs to become progressively weaker and finer until they simply stop growing altogether, becoming dormant. According to studies, saw palmetto’s extracts work to inhibit DHT in the scalp thus helping control hair loss and reviving hair follicles. In this way, hair follicles are strengthened, the scalp is less sensitive to stress and irritation and the hair itself improves in body and shine.External application of saw palmetto oil is easily absorbed by the skin. Hence massaging the scalp with the oil and leaving it on for at least an hour (or overnight) aids in the best results due to better absorption. While internally ingesting saw palmetto in the form of capsules is beneficial for your health in a systemic manner, topical application delivers the nutrients directly to the roots, allowing saturation exactly where needed. PUMPKIN SEED (Cucurbita pepo) Pumpkin seed oil contains many health nutrients, and two in particular that are believed to provide protection against DHT damage by inhibiting the enzyme 5-ar. Beta-sitosterol: This phytosterol (organic molecule found in plants) has been shown to block the conversion of testosterone into DHT by inhibiting the enzyme 5-ar. Delta-7-sterine: This compound specifically competes with the stronger DHT at the receptor sites of the follicles. In other words, it helps prevent DHT from binding to the hair follicles where it would begin to weaken and thin the hair. Unrefined Pumpkin Seed oil has good levels of both beta-sitosterol and delta-7-sterine to naturally inhibit the function of 5-ar from converting testosterone into DHT and taking hold of the roots. It does this without harmful drug-related side effects of medications and while adding beneficial nutrients, fatty acids and antioxidants to the scalp. EXTRACTION METHOD MATTERS HAIRMETTO only sources the highest quality Saw Palmetto, which is CO2 extracted* and our other plant oils are Cold-pressed. Why does it matter? Extraction using heat or solvents strip the properties of the plant/berry, rendering it incapable of delivering the nutrient richness it's capable of. While you may find a product with the name of the oil, their extraction process will determine the effectiveness of the product, and thus the resulting benefit to you. *Supercritical CO2 Green Technology retains natural properties, high efficiency and selectivity, natural sterilization and elimination of heavy metals and pesticides while offering no pollutants to the environment.
