A small glass vial is the final step in the fight for beautiful hair. We usually reach for them when we’ve tried absolutely everything and nothing seemed to work. Those small vials are like a care hit squat: ‘small commandos’ appear when nothing else is able to help with seborrhea, dandruff, excessive hair loss and hindered hair growth. But do hair ampoules actually work? Are they safe? What are they composed of and is there any alternative to such a serious treatment? In this article you will learn everything about hair ampoules, their effects, composition and effectiveness.
Hair ampoules are small, usually glass vials with active substances. These ingredients fight with hair loss, their weakened condition and hindered growth. The preparations stimulate circulation in the hair follicles and strengthen the hair bulbs. The products reducing hair loss also stimulate nw hairs to grow. The ampoules can be purchased individually as a single-use revitalizing shot (it’s a beautifying ampoule), or as a complete treatment for more serious problems. It usually consists of a dozen or so ampoules.
Hair ampoules work in different ways, depending on their role in care. In other words, ampoules that accelerate growth work differently than those regenerating damaged hair and the ampoules which should inhibit hair loss.
Generally, the ampoules nourish the scalp and stimulate hair growth at the same time. They contain a number of ingredients that stimulate the metabolism of the hair follicle that build keratin, which is the basic hair protein. The amouples help to strengthen the collagen fibres - they make the hairs better attached to their roots. Our hair after the treatment is more resistant to damage and other adverse external factors.
Hair ampoules are a serious hair treatment recommended only in the case of severe hair weakness or as the intensive regeneration of damaged, extremely weakened, excessively falling out hair. It is not advisable to use them as a substitute for hair masks or conditioners for hair that don’t need such a strong regeneration. It is because the concentration of active ingredients in ampoules is high - sometimes their use may damage the hair instead of help. You should also remember not to use several treatments in ampoules at the same time because their action can be mutually exclusive. The ampoules are a good choice when you notice such symptoms as:
The manufacturer's instructions should always be followed during the application of the ampoules. Most often, however, the instructions are very similar. The vials are used on clean scalp - the preparation is rubbed into it and not rinsed. Thanks to it, the substances contained in the vial have more time to work on your scalp and strengthen the bulbs. It is also important to massage the preparation into the skin. The massage itself stimulates circulation and accelerates the absorption of substances. As a result, hair bulbs become healthier and stronger.
Regenerating ampoules are used in a bit different way: here one ampoule lasts for about two applications and the preparation should be applied to the entire hair surface, rubbing it from the roots to the ends. This way, the ingredients will be better absorbed and will reach every part of the hair making the bands smooth, polished and the hair cuticles closed. Your hair should be rinsed with water after the time specified by the manufacturer.
Hair ampoules should be treated as a specialist hair treatment so they should be used according to the instructions. Do not use them longer than it’s recommended because it can lead to a complete opposite result than the desired. More professional ampoules often contain hormones and a number of strong substances. Long-term use can have a bad effect on your health. Because of the fact that these products have a very strong action, there should be a break between every treatment.
This question is a hard one - every single scalp has different needs, so each hair will react differently to a specific type of ampoules and ingredients contained in them. Before you start using the ampoules, it is always good to visit a specialist or a trichologist. That person will check the condition of your hair and on this basis the type of treatment will be chosen.
In the first place, you should always take into account the condition of your hair, its needs and the ingredients of the ampoules. What makes good hair ampoules?
Look for those with high-quality active ingredients that are essential for the hair. Consult some expert to find out which ingredients you need the most. Pay attention to the method of application as well - no one wants a product that is difficult to use. Check, therefore, if the preparation can be directly applied to the scalp. Also, it’s important to check if the manufacturer made the application as simple as possible - especially expensive ampoules should be easy to open and use.
You should also make sure that the full package is enough for a full treatment or if you need more of it, and how long you should wait for the desired effects.
Should you use hair ampoules? More advanced dermocosmetics are thoroughly tested to make sure they are safe and effective. Well-chosen vials, used according to the instruction should help with many serious problems with the hair and scalp.
It is important to reach for hair ampoules only when you really need stronger help - visit a specialist who will advise you on the type of the ampoules. Never use hair ampoules like an ordinary hair mask or hair conditioner. They are much stronger, hence should be used only for serious hair problems.
Poor hair condition is often a warning that something wrong is happening to your body. For this reason, you should try to find out why the condition of your hair deteriorated. Hair loss can be the result of excessive stress, hormonal changes or poorly selected cosmetics. Before you reach for the ampoules, analyze whether such intensive treatment is really needed for your hair.
As we’ve mentioned, hair ampoules is a serious hair treatment. Ampoules often have a rather controversial, synthetic composition. If you decide to try them, you should be very careful. There are also herbal ampoules available, though they are not suitable for everyone - they don’t work well on bleached or dyed hair.
An excellent alternative to ampoules is hair oiling: it also nourishes and cleanses the scalp, fights dandruff, dryness and seborrhea. Oils contain a number of vitamins, good fatty acids and phytosterols. They regenerate hair and stimulate hair bulbs to work. Properly chosen oil can inhibit hair loss and stimulate hair growth.
If your hair problems are not the result of any serious illnesses or hormonal changes, try a safer alternative - a complete beauty treatment with natural oils.
Professional hair ampoules are more like medicines than cosmetics, which is why they are available mainly in pharmacies or professional hair salons. You can also buy them via the Internet. Before you do it, consult a specialist who could examine the composition of the products you want to buy. It is a good idea to check the reviews of the ampoules beforehand as well.
