know your ingredients: Redensyl™
When it comes to the TV or music from your earplugs, turning down the volume a bit might be ideal, but when it comes to your hair, we always say TURN IT UP!!! Lifting it up at the root makes for awesome hair days, and it also lifts your confidence a few notches. However, excessive shedding or thinning can sometimes make it impossible to create that extra hair oomph. Feeling the real thinning hair struggle ourselves, we’ve not only created the (applauds please!) …… volume collection, but have also formulated our wash and condition products from the collection with Redensyl™, an ingredient from cosmetic manufacturer, Givaudan, to promote hair growth, plump-ness and thickness.
Made up of plant extracts, Redensyl™ is identified by the haircare industry as one of the newest breakthroughs against hair loss. Dihydroquercetin-glucoside (or DHGQ) is the compound found within Redensyl™ that targets stem cells in hair follicles and promotes cell division, aka anagen phase or growth phase. According to VeryWellHealth, catagen stage is the termination of active hair growth, while telogen phase refers to when the hair starts to shed. DHGQ prolongs anagen phase while deterring catagen and telogen phases. Other natural hair growth ingredients like amino acids and anti-inflammatories can also be found in Redensyl™.
Redensyl™ acts by targeting the outer root sheath cells, as known as hair follicle stem cells. When it comes to hair growth, these cells play a super important role, because they initiate the anagen (or growing) phase of the hair cycle. The DHQG in Redensyl™ stimulates ORSCs division, resulting in more hair growth and regeneration while prohibiting the activation of the telogen (or shedding) phase of the hair cycle.
So in short; less shedding, more hair growth and instant lift – these are just some of the perks you get from using products with Redensyl™. Scroll down for a full routine using our whole volume collection:
