Peptides for Hair Growth

For women everywhere, hair is not a simple matter of beauty but a profound part of our identity. Thick and lustrous locks are symbolic of health, vitality, femininity, and confidence. When hair becomes thin or starts to shed excessively, it can have a huge impact on our self-esteem. And unfortunately, millions of women across the globe are combatting the distressing effects of thin hair and hair loss, for a wide variety of reasons. But there are steps that can be taken to address these issues. One of these is by using peptides for hair growth. Here’s the lowdown.


What Are Peptides?

Ok – so here’s the science! Peptides are short chains of amino acids. And they’re the building block of proteins, and they are crucial for all manner of functions in your body. They work as signalling molecules that tell cells and organs to do certain things. How your cells are made, how energy from your food is processed, how your hormones work, even how hungry you feel. It's down to these marvellous molecules!


Peptides For Hair Growth: How Do They Help?

Peptides are messengers. And among the array of instructions they send out, they tell cells when to repair themselves, or when to grow. In the context of hair growth, peptides promote hair growth by addressing several factors that can affect the lifecycle and health of our tresses.


Stimulating The Hair Follicles

Peptides get to work by stimulating our hair follicles during certain points in our hair’s lifecycle. Recent research has found that they encourage follicles to move from the resting (telogen) phase to the growth phase (anagen). And the important part of all that jargon? Peptides can initiate and prolong the period that our hair grows!


Strengthening The Hair Shaft

Peptides are the building blocks of proteins. Your hair is composed of keratin, a protein also found in your skin and nails. Collagen, a protein that makes up the connective tissues in our bodies, is also present in our hair. Together, these two proteins play a vital role determining how strong our individual hair shafts are. And again, by stimulating cellular activity, peptides help power the production of keratin in the hair shaft and collagen in the scalp. This results in stronger hair follicles less prone to breakage and fall.


Helping Blood Flow

Healthy hair and scalps depend on healthy blood circulation. Without this, our hair and scalp are starved of the oxygen, nutrients and key hair vitamins needed to keep them in great condition. And here, peptides for hair growth play a key role by enhancing the circulation of the blood. Better blood flow means more of those vital hair and scalp goodies ending up where they’re needed, promoting a healthy scalp and thicker, stronger hair growth.


Scalp Power!

Peptides just don’t aid collagen production and blood flow, but they also possess potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. This makes them even more beneficial for scalp health. Their anti-inflammatory abilities help to soothe irritation and reduce scalp inflammation, which can drive conditions linked with hair loss. Meanwhile, their antioxidant powers help protect the scalp from oxidative stress caused by various environmental pollutants and ultraviolet radiation. Oxidative stress leads to cellular damage which can cause premature aging of both the scalp and our hair!


Incorporating Peptides For Hair Growth Into Your Hair Routine

Peptides with hair growth-promoting properties can be found naturally in some foods. As with any hair care routine, a balanced diet is very important. By eating foods rich in protein like lean meats, eggs, and fish, partnered with nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables, you’ll be taking great steps to help boost your natural peptide levels.

However, you can also take your peptide powers to the next level with great topical products. This is because peptides are small molecules, which means they can easily penetrate the skin and hair follicles. This ability makes them a very good ingredient in hair care (and skin and scalp care) formulations. Peptides can penetrate quickly and deeply, and that’s why they’re so effective in delivering targeted treatments for the hair, scalp, and skin.
