Have you noticed that you are beginning to lose hair? Whether your hair is thinning or your hairline is starting to recede, it is a good idea to take this hair loss into account when choosing a shampoo. Shampoos made with certain ingredients can help slow down your hair loss, keep the hair you still have strong, and sometimes even encourage new hair growth.

Here are four ingredients that are good to see in a shampoo for hair loss.


Biotin is a B vitamin that your body needs in order to grow healthy hair and nails. Getting enough biotin in your diet is important for hair health, but applying biotin topically to your hair and scalp can help, too. So, look for a shampoo that is fortified with biotin. It may not make a huge difference in terms of encouraging new hair growth, but it will help keep your existing hair healthy and strong which can make your head of hair look fuller overall.

Tea Tree Oil

Scalp irritation can make thinning hair worse. Sometimes, you end up in a cycle where your scalp becomes irritated because your hair is thinning, but then your hair becomes thinner because your scalp is irritated. A shampoo containing tea tree oil can help stop this cycle in its tracks. It will soothe irritation, help prevent infections, and ultimately help reduce the amount of hair you lose.

Argan Oil

Argan oil is a natural essential oil that is good for the hair. It helps moisturize the hair, which will keep your still-existing hair healthy and strong. It will also moisturize and nourish your scalp, which should help reduce the amount of hair you lose. Just be aware that when using argan oil shampoo, you may need to cut back on the amount of conditioner you use.


Minoxidil is a medication that is used to stimulate hair growth. It is often applied to the scalp in the form of a cream. However, you can find shampoos that contain minoxidil, too. Read the instructions before using such a shampoo. You'll usually be instructed to let it sit for a certain period of time before washing it away. Within a few weeks, you may notice some hair starting to regrow in the areas that were balding.

If you are losing your hair, you are not helpless. There are products you can use and steps you can take to improve the look of your hair. Start by looking for a shampoo with one or more of the above ingredients.
