For those of us regularly concerned with breakage, it can feel like a constant search for ingredients and products that will help hair thrive. Of course, the search comes with the internal conflict of not wanting to overmanipulate hair to make the breakage worse while also wanting to try new things. Heavy research is key—as well as trial and error—and red palm oil seems to be one of the newest ingredients people are buzzing about.

To find out more about this versatile oil including its myriad benefits, which hair types it performs best on, and exactly how to use it, we tapped experts Jason Emer and Lacy Fields, and Stacy Chimento.

What Is Red Palm Oil?

"Red palm oil originates from the tropical oil palm and comes from the same part of the palm tree as palm oil. The difference is, red palm oil is less processed and retains a red color that palm oil does not," Chimento tells us.

I’ve used this oil 5-6 times now and the results are just mediocre. In fact, I think my hair fall has started again due to this oil. All these days, I used a different oil which helped curb my hair fall and now it is back. Funny, how it says it is meant for hair regrowth! But it does make my hair feel healthy for 2-3 days and adds nice volume to my hair.

My Experience with Jovees Hair Regrowth Argan Kernel Oil Review:

Jovees Hair Regrowth Argan Kernel Oil Review Packaging

This hair oil comes in a transparent bottle, although it looks like that the bottle is green tinted, but it is not. The oil inside is greenish in color. It has a golden cap and a plastic stopper. The bottle isn’t leak proof because it does leak a bit, even with the stopper and the cap on. The details are printed in white all over the bottle. The bottle obviously isn’t safe for travel purposes.

The oil is lightweight and has a herbal fragrance to it. I like the smell and it doesn’t bother me. It mostly smells like amla oil and I like it. The oil isn’t too sticky and is very light. It is slightly on the runnier side. I apply the oil directly to my roots and then massage it very well.

The first time I used this oil, I applied a lot of it and let it stay for overnight. The next day, I washed it off with my shampoo and it gave me the silkiest, shiny, soft and velvety hair. My hair looked perfect and I was smitten by this oil. I did not even use my hair serum and yet my hair looked super silky. I was in awe of this oil. My hair felt and looked perfect for the next 4 days, even though I used to work out every single day. My hair did not feel oily or greasy for 4 whole days.

The fifth day, my hair felt a bit flat so I used this oil again. This time, I used a different shampoo and my hair felt good but not as good as the first time. So, I used it once again with the same shampoo I used for the first time. But I did not get the same results. My hair feels and looks nice, but the result is never as before. I’m super confused as to why this is happening. I’ve almost used the bottle but I’m unable to figure this oil out.

One’s hair is a very important component of how 1 makes a personal impression on others. Therefore, hair loss not only affects one’s aesthetic appearance, but also has a significant psychological impact, often resulting in deteriorated quality of life. Androgenetic alopecia, also known as male pattern hair loss and female pattern hair loss, is the most common form of hair loss in both sexes, and its prevalence increases with age. [1–3] The current treatment for alopecia is limited to 5-a reductase inhibitors or topical minoxidil, and in severe cases hair transplantation is the only curative therapy. [4,5] However, patients who suffer from side effects or are unresponsive to those therapies have restricted options in terms of alternative therapies. [4–6]

4. Discussion

The prevalence of androgenetic alopecia has been reported to be lower in Asian populations than in Caucasian populations. [17,18] In a 2001 study, the prevalence of androgenetic alopecia was 14.1% in men and 5.6% in women in South Korea. [18] Treatment for androgenetic alopecia is also receiving increasing attention, especially as concerns about the aging process are growing. To date, 5-α reductase inhibitors, including finasteride and dutasteride, topical minoxidil, and combinations thereof are the most commonly used treatments for androgenetic alopecia. Some other complementary treatments exist, but those proven to be effective and safe are very limited. Furthermore. 5-α reductase inhibitors have the well-known side effects of sexual dysfunction and heart function problems in male patients, and minoxidil was also reported to have adverse effects such as contact dermatitis and facial hypertrichosis. There are few alternative treatment choices if patients experience side effects or do not respond to classical treatments. [4–6]

LLLT is a non-thermal light therapy method that has a photobiomodulatory effect. It has recently been used to promote wound healing, as well as for its anti-inflammatory properties, photo-rejuvenation, and photoprophylaxis, and as a treatment for various dermatologic disorders. [7–9] In 1967, Endre Mester first observed that mice treated with lasers during experiments investigating the potential carcinogenic effects of laser exposure regrew hair in shaved areas significantly faster than unexposed mice. [11] Subsequently. several studies—ranging from experimental animal studies to clinical studies—were conducted to show the effectiveness of LLLT for promoting hair growth, and LLLT was approved for hair loss treatment by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2007. [12–16] Although the exact mechanisms have not yet been identified, some cellular and molecular mechanisms have been identified in recent studies. LLLT is assumed to release nitric oxide from cytochrome c oxidase, a chromophore responsible for the absorption of red/infrared light, driving the electron transport chain to generate adenosine triphosphate and reactive oxygen species, as well as inducing transcription factors. [19,20] As a result, it has been speculated that LLLT exerts its effects on hair growth by stimulating anagen re-entry in telogen hair follicles, prolonging the duration of the anagen phase, increasing the rate of proliferation in active anagen hair follicles, and preventing premature catagen development. [19,20]

The helmet-type light therapy device was simple and easy to use at home, and it had the advantage of being able to stimulate the entire scalp, making it easy to analyze its effects and making it suitable for use as a standard treatment. Significant improvements in hair density and hair thickness have been recorded in previous randomized controlled trials. Lanzafame et al conducted 2 randomized controlled trials in male and female patients using a helmet-type device delivering a 6-mW output at 655 nm for 16 weeks. Increased hair count (by 35% in male patients and 37% in female patients) was observed in the LLLT-treated group versus the sham-treated controls. [21,22] The study conducted by Kim et al used a 655-nm wavelength for 24 weeks, with 18 minutes of treatment daily. The hair density increased by a 17.2 hairs/cm 2 and the hair thickness increased by 12.6 μm. [23] In 2018, Mai-Yi Fan et al reported that the experimental group showed significant improvements, with hair count increasing by 6.7 hairs/cm 2 , hair thickness by 2.3 μm, and hair coverage by 2.4%. [24] More recently, Sunchonwanit et al. conducted a similar study using a 5-mW output at a 660-nm wavelength for 24 weeks. They reported improvements in the hair count (10.21 hairs/cm 2 ) and hair thickness (6.11 μm) in the laser group. [25] There were no severe adverse effects in these studies, and only a few patients reported mild side effects such as headache, dry skin, pruritus, redness, or irritation at the targeted site. [21–25]

Only a few studies have been conducted of the efficiency and safety of helmet-type LLLT devices for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia, especially in Asian populations. In previous studies, the wavelength of 655 nm was proven to be most efficient for hair growth. [12–15] Our helmet-type LLLT device contained a combination of 655-nm LDs and LEDs, and each used a continuous wave form with a maximum power of 5 mW, corresponding to about 2.36 mW/cm 2 . In order to maximize the accessibility of the treatment, we used a protocol in which the clinical device was used for 25 minutes every other day. In the experimental group, hair density and thickness increased by 41.90 hairs/cm 2 and 7.50 μm, respectively. There was no significant change in hair density in the control group, although the hair thickness showed a marked reduction of 15.03 μm. This indicates that alopecia was progressing in the control group without treatment, and that LLLT prevented participants’ hair from changing to vellus hair. There were no statistically significant differences in subjective satisfaction, but slightly higher satisfaction was obtained in the experimental group. Based on the high compliance and low dropout rate of the clinical trial, we suggest that the helmet-type LLLT device was confirmed to be easy and convenient. No side effects and adverse reactions occurred in our study, as in previous studies.

Participants’ subjective satisfaction with their hair was assessed in this study. No significant difference in subjective satisfaction was found between the treatment group and the sham device group, although slightly higher scores were reported in the treatment group. This is similar to previous findings reported by Mai-Yi Fan et al and Kim et al [23,24] This inconsistency indicates that subjective satisfaction did not reflect the improvement in phototrichographic findings. These outcomes could have also stemmed from differences in personal expectations regarding the treatment of alopecia and limitations of our survey, such as its simplicity, the short-term follow-up period, and the relatively small sample size.

There are limitations to this trial, such as the short-term follow-up and the possibility of measurement bias, which could interfere with accurate counting and analysis. In this study, we only collected calculated data from the phototrichogram device after analyzing the photos which were captured in real time, which may have contributed to measurement bias as a limitation. Furthermore, the possibility cannot be excluded that patients may have received other hair care and hair loss treatments during the clinical trial. We suggest that further studies should include a long-term follow-up to evaluate long-term outcomes and side effects. Additionally, differences in efficiency according to age and the stage of hair loss need to be compared and analyzed. Furthermore, research into the efficacy of combining LLLT with classic treatments such as 5-α reductase inhibitors and/or minoxidil should be conducted.

Managing Unwanted Facial Hair Naturally

unwanted facial hairGuest Post by Renae Gylbert

My bout with what I know know to be severe hirsutism and mild PCOS appeared when I was just 11 years old.

I remember showing my sister the fine, stringy hair growing from my jaw line. She and I thought it was weird and just took an old razor and shaved it off, going about my 11 year old business.

Several years later, I found myself in high school with a full beard wondering what in the world was I cursed with?!

Fast forward into adulthood and two kids later, I eventually diagnosed myself with hirsutism before 2 endocrinologists, a gynecologist and a general physician did. I suspected I also had a mild case of PCOS because my periods were oddly irregular following my second pregnancy. My gynecologist admitted my ovaries had cysts but not any that would cause me to look like a wolverine cub.

Upon further research, I stumbled upon many non-medical means that could be helpful in curbing excessive facial and body hair from women dealing with PCOS and hirsutism.

Why go natural with treating hirsutism and PCOS?

Since starting my own website for hirsutism, The Hirsutism Hub, many girls have contacted me saying hormonal therapies did not work for their hormonal imbalance. I suspect some of them did not stay true to the regimen long enough (I found positive results with body hair reduction taking 200mg/day of Spironolactone after 6 months). Others may have had undesirable reactions to spironolactone or metformin or whatever birth control their doctors prescribed.

And it is true: many hormonal therapies come with undesired side effects including weight gain, headaches, heavy periods, higher than normal potassium levels and the danger of feminizing a male fetus if the user is pregnant. Sometimes, women are scared to try conventional medicines because they are lead to believe the side effects outweigh the necessary effects.

So it’s completely understandable for a women with hirsutism at her wit’s end to want to try a more holistic approach with curbing her unwanted hair.

What has worked for me?

Dealing with hirsutism for nearly 20 years, I’ve tried tweezing and shaving and waxing and tweezing some more. So I have a good idea of what works and what only provides temporary relief! Laser hair removal and electrolysis have been very good to me but as a single mom of two, it was not always in the budget!

So after intensive research, I tried some of these holistic methods and they have actually provided me some relief of the dreaded 5 ‘0 clock shadow. I wanted something effective for my facial hair since the spironolactone appeared to only work for my body but not my facial hair.

These methods are not miracle workers but I definitely notice a reduction in growth and appearance of unwanted hair on my face:

  • Tea Tree and Lavender Oil: According to an 2012 Italian study published in the Journal of Endocrinological Investigation, applying an oil spray with tea tree and lavender oil on affected areas twice a day with subjects suffering from mild idiopathic hirsutism saw a noticeable reduction after 3 months. I tweezed some fine chin hairs and sprayed a mix of lavender and tea tree on the area a couple times a day. I truly did notice the hair was growing back slowed after a few weeks. Plus lavender oil seems so good!

  • Spearmint Tea: This tea has been popular for centuries, especially in the Middle East. It is believe to have anti-androgenic properties and several studies have shown when drank a few times a day, spearmint tea has slowed the growth of unwanted hair. One study showed that subjects with hirsutism who drank the tea twice a day for a month reported significant reductions of hirsutism. I mixed some spearmint tea with lemon tea (I hate the taste of spearmint!) and to my utter surprise, I notice my facial hair was growing back much slower! I would usually see ingrowns with a few days, but while drinking spearmint tea, the hair grew back much slower. I did not notice normal regrowth patterns for almost two weeks! If you want to try it, you’re in luck since spearmint tea is sold in most grocery stores.
  • Turmeric Facial Mask: I cannot stop bragging about what turmeric paste has done for my facial hair! Turmeric, as a beauty and health product, is nothing new as it has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. It involves mixing turmeric powder, which you can find in any grocery store, an oil of your choice and cream, like plain yogurt. Mix together to make a creamy facial mask. I was using this at first as a facial scrub and anti-inflammatory agent since I get red very easily from tweezing. I used these everyday, sometimes twice a day, for a solid month and noticed my facial hair was finer, thinner and not as coarse. I wanted to do cartwheels! While there is no medical proof showing turmeric helps reduced unwanted hair, some aestheticians believe the Indian powder shrinks hair follicles, making hair growth more difficult, which could explain the fine, thin appearance of my facial hair.

As I stated above, these are not miracle pills; just natural methods that actually reduced the growth of my hirsutism on my face. And there are many naturals methods hirsute and PCOS chics can try; these are just the ones I used with success.

Give them a try. You may be very happy you did!

She finally found the courage to talk about her ordeal and related topics a few year ago by starting her blog, The Hirsutism Hub. She loves reaching out to women like herself dealing with hirsutism while giving them an unique support site they can go to for a shoulder to lean on.
