Saw Palmetto is good for hair growth. However, which option is better: Oil or Capsule?

Childbirth, thyroid problems, alopecia areata, anagen effluvium, pregnancy. There are various causes of hair loss. At the same time there are various treatments available for prevention and regrowth of hairs. Lets evaluate the pros and cons - oral vs. topical hair regrowth treatment - or should you use them both?

There are two main types of capsules, hard shelled and soft gel. Hard-shelled capsules consist of two halves. Among them the one that carries medication is called LHFC. Airtight LHFCs can contain more than one drug. Soft-gel capsules are usually semi-transparent as opposed to opaque. Capsules are fast acting, tasteless, and have higher drug absorption.

 

However there are certain drawbacks in capsules which should be known so that we can take a judicious call while choosing any treatment - hair or otherwise. Capsules are less durable, have shorter shelf life and may contain animal products that may make them unsuitable for vegans. Additionally most capsules contain additives; especially softgels tend to have a higher number of synthetic ingredients. When capsules are taken orally, the ingredients circulate the body, affecting it systemically.

 

Since we're talking about saw palmetto, for example, many take saw palmetto orally (capsule form). While you can source high quality capsules, if taken to promote hair regrowth, what is the amount of benefit directly to your scalp?  

Here we find the main benefit of topical application of scalp treatments; most of which are unavailable if treatment is solely in the form of oral medication.

Oils help soften the strand, nourishes the hair with vital essential fatty acids, reduces dry flaky scalp, balances sebum production and strengthens the roots. While deciding on using topical hair oil, its well advised to ensure that it contain anti-inflammatory properties, since inflammation is often the underlying reason for hair loss. If left on for a few hours, oils will saturate the roots, delivering the nutrients where they are needed most, instead of circulating the body.

HAIRMETTO® Topical Oil is one such oil which is used by thousands due to its chemical free characteristics, scientifically proven ingredients to promote hair regrowth and ease of application. It is made up of botanical plant extracts and various medicinal oils, each one of them chosen for its unique properties to protect, repair and restore.

When applied topically with the exact placement twist-top cap, the oils permeate the scalp, delivering the soothing and medicinal benefits right where it is needed. 

Saw Palmetto is one among the medicinal oils. It is rich in essential fatty acids and its extract works to inhibit DHT in the scalp. When DHT flows freely through the bloodstream, it binds to the receptors on the hair follicles. Once DHT has a grip on the hair follicle, it causes the follicle to weaken, miniaturize and ultimately the hair will fall away, leaving a non-thriving follicle without the environment to grow a new hair in its place.

In addition to Saw Palmetto, Pumpkin seed oil, Castor seed oil and Stinging Nettle are other herbs and organic extracts that are used in the production of HAIRMETTO® which is fast becoming a preferred choice among those who believe in natural and pharmaceutical side-effect free hair treatment.

Other important ingredients in HAIRMETTO® are Rosemary, Lavender and Cedarwood extract which are known for their anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Another key ingredient is Peppermint oil which is found to improve blood circulation to the follicles, promoting the lengthening of the growth phase of the hair.

Together these ingredients have raised hopes among those who have preferred natural over synthetic when it comes to hair treatment. When it comes to choosing saw palmetto in either capsule form or topical oil, some choose to supplement with both. Remember, the topical Oil will be placed exactly where your scalp needs it most - delivering the benefits right to the roots!
