Can Grape Seed Prevent Hair Loss?

How does grape seed stimulate hair growth?

The potent blend of grape seed extract acts as an antiallergenic, antihistamine, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant.  Grape Seed extract has been found to inhibit the DHT production, and thus prevent hair the pattern of baldness and thinning hair.

Grape seed extract can promote hair growth in multiple ways, but in particular, the action of proanthocyanidins found in the grape seed extract plays a key role. It inhibits the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). High levels of DHT are known to cause androgenic alopecia - grape seed extract can be used to reduce the rate of hair fall. Proanthocyanidins also act as growth stimulants for hair follicles.

An extensive hair study by Japanese researchers showed that proanthocyanidins extracted from grape seeds not only stopped hair loss but increased the growth of hair cells by over 200%. Proanthocyanidins generated two anagen, or hair growth phases. Instead of the telogen phase during which the hair growth cycle shows no activity, proanthocyanidins produced another anagen phase, a twin-peak that led to rapid hair regrowth. The effectiveness of proanthocyanidins in hair regrowth is said to be similar to the drug, Minoxidil. Other follow-up studies have confirmed this doubling of the anagen phase and rapid hair growth caused by proanthocyanidins. Grape seed extract also promotes skin health, which contributes to hair growth.

Where can I get grape seed? 

Grape seed extract can be purchased from most supermarkets and health stores.  The most popular type of grape seed extract is supplement form, and the daily dosage should not exceed  250mg.

Grape seed extract will not cure hair loss, but used in conjunction with other hair beneficiary vitamins, and it can help prevent the pattern of thinning strands and stimulate hair cells, thus paving the way for healthy hair growth.
