6 Benefits of Copper Gluconate for Healthier Hair

6 Benefits of Copper Gluconate for Healthier Hair

Whether you are struggling with hair loss or want to improve your scalp health, using the right ingredients on your hair and scalp is essential. Copper gluconate is an effective ingredient that can benefit your hair’s present and future. For these benefits, it is one of the many ingredients in Divi’s Scalp Serum.

If you're like many people, you may have never heard of copper gluconate. To understand its benefits, you’ll need to know what it is and how it contributes to a healthy environment for hair growth. 

What Is Copper Gluconate? 

Copper gluconate is a copper salt of D-gluconic acid, which is an organic compound that is the oxidation product of glucose. Say that a few times fast! The key to this combination of copper and gluconic acid is that it increases the bioavailability of the trace element copper. Copper's bioavailability refers to the substance's easy absorption into the body so it can begin producing benefits.

In its raw form, copper gluconate is a powder with a blue-green hue. This ingredient is popular in skincare and hair care products, as it helps deliver copper to the skin when applied topically. Using topical products with copper gluconate can enhance your body's ability to absorb copper, which allows you to experience more benefits from this mineral. Our bodies use copper for a range of functions, such as immune system operation and energy production. Copper can also provide many health benefits for the skin, hair, and scalp.

How Can Copper Gluconate Promote Hair Health?

Applying copper gluconate and other ingredients for hair growth directly to the scalp is one of the most effective means of absorbing them into the body. Once copper gluconate has been absorbed, you may start to experience the benefits associated with this ingredient.

  1. Stimulating Hair Growth 

Copper deficiencies may cause several problems for your skin and hair. Since copper gluconate aids in copper absorption, its use can potentially reverse these effects and stimulate hair growth. For example, you may experience faster hair growth or help with reversing hair thinning by reviving your hair follicles. 

  1. Reducing Hair Graying 

Copper contributes to melanin formation, so low copper levels can cause prematurely graying hair. Use of products with copper gluconate may be able to reduce hair graying related to copper deficiency.

  1. Helping to Maintain the Structure of the Hair Shaft

Copper can also contribute to forming and maintaining the structure of the hair shaft, which is the visible portion of the hair extending out of the skin. As a result, using a serum with copper gluconate may support hair shaft strength and structure. The overall wellness of the hair shaft ties to your hair’s appearance and its strength against breakage.  

  1. Supporting  Collagen Availability

Most people know about the value of collagen in skin and hair healthCollagen itself consists mainly of three amino acids: proline, glycine, and hydroxyproline. While proline may not be as well-known as collagen, it is a main component in keratin, which is another recognized contributor to hair strength and appearance. 

Another collagen bonus that is supported by ingredients like copper gluconate is its help in fighting damage to your hair follicles caused by free radicals. These harmful compounds result from stress, pollutants, and environmental contaminants and may damage the hair follicles. Fortunately for our hair health, research suggests that collagen can act as an antioxidant to fight free radicals

With an assist from copper gluconate, collagen may also help address age-related hair thinning, especially since the body often produces less collagen with each birthday celebration. Fortunately, supplementing collagen production with copper can help prevent hair thinning and reverse these effects (though it may not help with too much birthday fun!) 

  1. Enjoying Elastin 

Like collagen, elastin is another skin protein in the extracellular matrix. Using a scalp serum with copper gluconate can aid in its availability and its accompanying hair benefits. 

How does elastin help hair? Hair follicles depend on elastin fibers to function correctly. Elastin deficiencies, like those associated with Menkes Syndrome, may lead to brittle hair. So, increasing elastin synthesis may help mitigate this issue and strengthen hair overall. 

  1. Increasing Follicle Size

You may have quite a comprehensive hair care routine, but thinking about increasing follicle size may not have appeared on your list of hair goals. However, topical application of copper gluconate can stimulate copper peptide, which may promote the growth of human hair follicles. Why should you think about your hair follicles? Your hair follicle size can impact the fullness and thickness of your hair. (Bonus: Divi’s Scalp Serum also contains Copper Tripeptide-1!)

Although side effects from copper gluconate are incredibly rare, consulting with your physician or dermatologist is a great choice for your peace of mind and hair goal confidence. Divi’s Scalp Serum is also dermatologist-tested and safe for most all skin and hair types. 

Copper gluconate for hair delivers essential copper to your cells, which provides numerous benefits for hair and scalp health. Divi's Scalp Serum combines an optimal dose of copper gluconate with other science-backed, plant-based (vegan) ingredients, which may help with hair loss, promote hair follicle growth, and nourish the scalp. The addition of cleaningredients can be a game changer when it comes to creating a healthy environment for hair to grow.
