Adaptogens are a group of natural herbs and botanicals that are useful for hair growth and health because they have special properties that help your scalp resist and manage stress and irritation. They have been used in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. Adaptogens assist in healing, and help defend the scalp against physical, environmental and even emotional stressors.
How Adaptogens Work for Hair Growth
Adaptogens are helpful for supporting hair growth and hair health because they help the scalp to defend against stress. They help your scalp adjust to physical, emotional and environmental stressors, and also help to harmonize the scalp and follicles. They help your body adjust to physical, emotional and biological stress. Adaptogens help to stimulate the stress protection response of the body, keeping the your scalp in balance and reducing follicle fatigue.
Why Your Scalp Needs Adaptogens
Your body is constantly bombarded by stress: Emotional stressors from work or our relationships; environmental stressors like pollution, or the chemicals in our skin and hair products; and even the stress of illness or bodily disharmony.
Stress upsets the delicate homeostasis (balance) within your scalp. When this occurs, imbalance can result. Imbalance can wreak havoc in the body. It can destroy hair follicles, and damage the skin. Imbalance shows up on your skin, your hair, and in the way that you feel and move.
Adaptogens help to boost the stress protection response of the body, keeping the body in balance and reducing harmful cellular fatigue.
