The Hair Vigor Mask is another great offering from the folks at Ultrax Labs. Disclaimer: I’m a fan of their products, and have already reviewed and used the Ultrax Hair Surge Shampoo, and the Ultrax Plush styling serum.
The Hair Vigor Mask is a deep conditioning treatment that nourishes hair follicles and the skin on our scalp.
This hair loss product is unisex and appropriate for both men and women suffering from hair loss, or merely limp, lifeless hair that needs a big boost.
Why Use A Hair Mask?
A hair mask is a treatment that can really “sink in” to your scalp. Think about it – we use face masks for our faces, wraps and spa treatments for our bodies, but what about our scalps? Shampoo is for hair, not necessarily for our scalps.
Ultrax Labs Hair Vigor Mask claims to both smooth and repair all hair types. This includes unruly, coarse, damaged and/or color treated hair.
Using the synergistic effects of Caffeine, Aloe Vera Juice, Argan Oil and many others, the folks at Ultras claim this premium hair stimulating hair mask will give you softer looking hair that is left moisturized after its use.
Hair VigorMask helps hydrate the scalp and repair hair follicles from within to promote healthy, thicker looking hair.
Ultrax Labs Hair Vigor Mask Ingredients
Let’s take a closer look at some of these ingredients to see how they help with hair loss.
Caffeine as a hair loss treatment is essentially a miracle. The story is worth shouting from the rooftops – caffeine is an incredible discovery and asset for the hair loss treatment product world!
A revolutionary 2015 study showed that caffeine is a heavy hitter in the world of hair loss treatment. German scientists explored whether caffeine could encourage hair cells to produce more hair.
They placed follicles from hundreds of different human scalps in petri dishes. Some of the petri dishes were treated with caffeine, some where untreated. The experiment showed that the hair follicles that were spiked with caffeine grew much faster than the untreated cells.
Because of this landmark study, many shampoos, conditioners, and sprays formulated to treat hair loss now include caffeine.
Argan oil has significant benefits for those suffering from hair loss. The oil has been used throughout antiquity to treat a variety of skin diseases. It’s particularly helpful for scalp plagued by dandruff and irritation. Argan oil is rich in natural phenols that are beneficial to hair follicles.
Cocoa butter is favored for hair and skin products due to its ability to penetrate the deep layers of the skin and nourish it from within. Cocoa butter prevents hair loss due to breakage for individuals with damaged hair.
We’ve written separately about Biotin, so if you want way more info, click here. Short version: biotin is an important B vitamin that helps with hair and skin health.
Hair is made of keratin, which is a type of protein. Proteins are built from amino acids, which result from the reaction of cell enzymes and biotin. The biotin in your body provides an essential ingredient in the process of hair growth.
Aloe Vera Juice
Aloe Vera has many established health benefits for the human body, particularly for skin and digestive health. Aloe Vera has an established ability to protect the skin on the scalp scalp and stimulate new growth of hair.
Aloe vera contains proteolytic enzymes, which repairs dead skin cells on the scalp. Aloe works as a conditioner, and prevents itching on the scalp. Bonus, it also reduces dandruff!
Jojoba moisturizes your scalp, stimulating hair growth. Jojoba oil acleanses the scalp of excess sebum build-up, which is scalp oil that’s often too high when there are excess androgens. Jojoba also stimulates circulation on your scalp, bringing new blood to hair follicles and thereby stimulating growth.
Sage has been used in many traditional medical systems to fight hair loss and baldness. Sage contains beta-sitosterol, which is a 5-alpha reductase compound found to be effective in treating male pattern baldness.
Macadamia Nut Oil
Macadamia oil is used in hair loss products for its nutritive, reconstructive, and hydrating properties. Squalene is a naturally occurring antioxidant in macadamia oil that reduces the oxidative stress on our skin and scalp by preventing loss of moisture. The fatty acids in macadamia oil help make hair strong, shiny, and nourished down tot he level of the hair follicles, which reduces hair loss and brittle strands.
Meadowsweet is a natural astringent that helps clarify the scalp and promote circulation around follicles and hair shafts.
Sesame oil improves the circulation of blood in the scalp, which in turn promotes hair growth. It is also highly penetrative in the deep layers, and this helps heal chemical damage, and supplies nourishment to hair shafts and follicles.
Sesame oil is also a natural sunscreen, protecting the scalp from harmful UV.
So…where does this leave us? Overly informed about the intricate details of the ingredients in Ultrax Hair Vigor!
But, it’s important to dig in and really look to see if the ingredients can at all substantiate the claims that a product works.
After reviewing the evidence in detail, I am confident this product is effective and nourishing for scalps and skin of all types. Each of the above ingredients brings its own unique benefit to the synergy of the final product.
