Hyaluronic Acid and Hair Growth: Mechanism of Action

Hyaluronic Acid and Hair Growth: Mechanism of Action

Let me ask you a question. Does your hair feel weak? Do you struggle with breakage and shedding?

Did you know that poor diet and nutritional deficiencies can also contribute to hair loss? One such deficiency is hyaluronic acid, which is most commonly known for promoting healthy skin and hair.

Divi’s Scalp Serum contains hyaluronic acid and other effective compounds to support a healthy scalp and hair growth cycle to combat dryness, shedding and breakage.

Let's dig a little deeper.

In the past few years, hyaluronic acid has gained significant popularity in the cosmetic industry thanks to its incredible skin and hair benefits. While mainly known for its hero-like ability to improve skin health, hyaluronic acid can also do wonders for your scalp and hair!

Hyaluronic acid is an effective and beneficial ingredient in Divi's Scalp Serum and has been shown to help you get your scalp and hair health back on track.

Introduction to Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule within the body's dermal layer. This clear, gel-like substance loves water, and its primary role is to prevent the skin from drying out by retaining water and maintaining a steady moisture level.

While hyaluronic acid is an effective moisturizing agent for your skin, it also offers several benefits for your hair. Hair needs lubrication inside and out to maintain its structure and grow healthy, and a water-loving substance such as hyaluronic acid can help.

Stay with me now. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant acting like a sponge to prevent dry or damaged hair moisture loss. Drawing and locking water molecules inside the hair strands can improve your hair's appearance and encourage growth.

Hyaluronic acid also improves hair elasticity by maintaining the keratin proteins inside the hair shaft. Keratins are a major structural component of the hair and play an essential role in the hair's strength and thickness. Keratins can be found in the cortex layer (hair shaft), and when hyaluronic acid is added, it penetrates all these areas to help seal in the keratin.

This incredible chemical doesn't stop there. Hyaluronic acid also has other beneficial properties, such as preventing the growth of bacteria (bacteriostatic effect), inflammation (anti-inflammatory) and swelling (anti-oedematous). With all that information, there’s no wonder why hyaluronic acid is added to scalp products like Divi’s Scalp Serum.

Hyaluronic Acid in Divi’s Scalp Serum: How Does It Help?

When it comes to hair and scalp health, you want the best ingredients for the best effects. At Divi, we have science on our side. Our clean, fast-absorbing and residue-free products incorporate clinically effective ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, to help promote a healthier head of hair.

I'll explain: While Divi's Scalp Serum won't permanently cure your hair loss condition, it can help treat the symptoms by creating conditions to facilitate healthy hair growth, thus promoting a luscious, full head of hair. This product penetrates deep into the hair shaft to hydrate hair's unmet needs and strengthens the overall condition.

Here's how Divi's Scalp Serum targets the root causes of hair health.

Increased Hair Hydration

Hyaluronic acid's water-binding properties act on the hair fibers in the same way they do on the skin, allowing the hair fibers to retain and seal moisture from the product. With less moisture lost, your hair is less prone to dryness and breakage. In fact, one clinical study found that the hair treated with the product had significantly more hair hydration levels after eight weeks of use.

On top of that, this powerful ingredient is especially effective for dry, damaged hair. Dry hair struggles to retain water, but hyaluronic acid in Divi’s Scalp Serum can revitalize high-porosity hair by filling cracks in the porous hair shaft and replenishing it.

Here's why that's important. We know hyaluronic acid is great for your skin, and the skin of your scalp is no different. A hydrated scalp is an ideal condition for hair to grow – increased scalp hydration means the hair follicles are free to sprout new healthy strands.

Divi's Scalp Serum can help you maintain a moisturized scalp, which can help combat a dry and itchy scalp. Even better, hyaluronic acid complements other ingredients in our Scalp Serum, such as ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), to boost hydration.

Calms Frizzy Hair

Frizzy hair is usually a sign of dehydrated hair. Since hyaluronic acid attracts and retains moisture, it can help seal the hair cuticle and prevent any unwanted moisture (like humidity) from affecting the hair follicle and causing frizzy hair.

Not only can hyaluronic acid in Divi's Scalp Serum help boost hydration levels, but it can also give you smoother, less frizzy hair. That's another bonus!

Thick and Healthy Hair

Hair loss can often occur because of the weakening of hair strands, making them more prone to breakage by washing or brushing. Hyaluronic acid is similar to fertilizer for plants because it has been shown to increase hair growth and strand diameter, according to dermatologist Dr. Paradi Mirmirani.

The best part is Divi uses an innovative blend of hyaluronic acid and other ingredients to help maintain moisture within the hair shaft, which can increase the appearance of a thicker, fuller head of hair.

Restores Hair Strength

The moisturizing effect of hyaluronic acid on hair fibers promotes strength, thereby reducing breakage and shedding.

Facilitate Hair Growth

A healthy, balanced scalp microbiome is required for optimal hair growth, and using hyaluronic acid for hair health can help facilitate this.

OK, I know what you're thinking. Hyaluronic acid can't make your hair grow overnight, and you’re correct. However, its inclusion in Divi's Scalp Serum can promote a healthy environment to promote hair growth, which encourages healthier, fuller hair growth.

Which Conditions Can Hyaluronic Acid Help With?

Research on the benefits of hyaluronic acid proves how this ingredient can aid hair regrowth and promote a healthier scalp. Here are just some of the hair loss and scalp conditions that hyaluronic acid can help with, including prevention of symptoms:

  • Androgenetic alopecia (pattern baldness) – While there is no hard evidence that hyaluronic acid can turn the clock back on hair loss, it can be used in combination with treatment and other of Divi’s scalp care ingredients to facilitate hair regrowth. Hyaluronic acid has two mechanisms: inflammation regulation and new blood vessel formation. These mechanisms have been shown to regulate inflammation levels, improve scalp blood flow, and rejuvenate tired hair bulbs.
  • Itchy and dry scalp – Hyaluronic acid can help maintain a moisturized scalp thanks to its water-binding capability and has been shown to combat dry and itchy scalps. A well-hydrated and moisturized scalp is ideal for hair growth as the hair follicle is appropriately hydrated and free to sprout new strands.
  • Scalp psoriasis – Hyaluronic acid has antibacterial properties, which have been shown to help reduce active sources of inflammation, such as wounds or sores on the scalp caused by psoriasis. Because scalp psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory disorder and hyaluronic acid has anti-inflammatory properties, it can help calm the symptoms of scalp psoriasis.
  • Receding or thinning hair – Hyaluronic acid has been shown to strengthen the hair strand by maintaining moisture within the hair shaft and cuticle. This may, in turn, help with reducing hair loss.

What does this mean for you?

Although Divi is not a treatment for medical conditions causing dry scalp, our Scalp Serum has been shown to help relieve the symptoms caused by these conditions by providing moisture to the scalp and hair.

Common Causes of a Dry Scalp

  • Frequently washing your hair: Washing your hair too often with shampoos containing chemicals can cause you to strip the natural oil from your hair and scalp. This can cause hair to become brittle and break and cause your scalp to become dry and flaky. Using moisturizing products from Divi will prevent this from becoming a problem.
  • Changes in the weather: When it becomes cold outside, the humidity tends to drop, which causes your skin to dry out all over your body. Once you start running your heating or blasting warm air, your skin dries out even more, especially on your scalp.
  • Eczema: Eczema can occur on the scalp, resulting in dry, itchy and red areas. In extreme eczema cases, the skin can crack and bleed.
  • Psoriasis: Psoriasis is caused by a malfunctioning immune system, which causes skin cells to multiply rapidly. These fast-growing cells build up on the skin's surface, causing patches that are itchy and dry. Psoriasis is common on the scalp and back of the neck.

Possible Side Effects of Hyaluronic Acid

Experts consider hyaluronic acid to be safe for your skin and hair. No evidence points to any significant side effects of topical hyaluronic acid (such as hair serums, shampoos, conditioners, etc.).

Since your body naturally produces hyaluronic acid, it's generally unlikely for you to have an allergic or sensitive reaction to it. However, a consultation with your doctor and a patch test is always recommended.

But does hyaluronic acid cause any irritation?

Generally, when you apply hyaluronic acid to your skin, it doesn't lead to any adverse reactions. Hyaluronic acid is already a natural substance in our skin, so you should not expect any problems when you apply it.

It all boils down to this. In Divi’s Scalp Serum, all ingredients are measured carefully and dermatologically tested to reduce the chance of adverse effects. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced within the human body and can be used daily.

You can apply hyaluronic acid directly to your scalp. To help increase moisture levels and minimize dryness and flakiness, try a leave-in scalp serum, like Divi's Scalp Serum, that blends hyaluronic acid with other essential clean ingredients.

As with any product coming in contact with your skin, always do a patch test first to ensure no allergic reactions occur. However, Divi's products have been dermatologist-approved, are vegan, and are cruelty-free. These products have been specially formulated to contain ingredients in such quantities that no irritation should occur.
