Grow New Hair Shampoo is a relatively new formulation of a hair growth and hair supporting shampoo.
This product is ideal for both men and women suffering from hair loss. It has a powerful herbal smell that isn’t too floral or masculine.
But, what makes it worth your time and money?
The folks at Just Naturals claim that the presence of of rice and soy proteins make their shampoo unique, and the addition of Vitamin B5 helps to strengthen and thicken hair, which makes it look fuller and stronger.
How Exactly Does Just Natural Hair Loss Shampoo Do All That?
Let’s go in more details about the ingredients in Just Nutritive New Hair Shampoo, and the specific role each of these may play in fighting hair loss.
The shampoo includes hair-supporting plant-based extracts like licorice, sarsaparilla, and papaya fruit plus basil and thyme.
Carrot seed, pumpkin, and argan oils also bring richness and vibrance to the hair.
Basil Essential Oil (Ocimum basilicum)
Castor Seed Oil (Ricinus communis)
Regular usage of castor oil is purported to increase hair growth, reduce breakage, and moisturize hair and your scalp. Castor oil is high in ricinoleic acid which makes it a very effective nutritive anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent (3).
This can help keep any fungus or bacteria from preventing or slowing hair growth. Castor oil is also high in omega 9 fatty acids.
Sea Buckthorn Oil (Hippophae rhamnoides)
The oil is extracted from the seeds or the pulp of the fruit, both of which are extremely high in fatty acids (4). It is known as a super fruit for its wonderful healing properties.
The numerous benefits of sea buckthorn oil have caused it to be used as one of the basic ingredients of traditional folk medicine throughout time.
Rice Protein (Orysa sativa)
Rice protein is a soluble vegetable protein, which has been extracted from rice bran. A nutritive plant derived protein that provides superior antioxidant properties and essential fatty acids (5). In 1694, rice arrived in South Carolina, probably originating from Madagascar. It is an excellent in adding nutritive shine and highlights to the hair.
This substantive protein also increases the ability of skin and hair to bind moisture. In the hair, this results in increased flexibility and tensile strength. On the skin, increased moisture retention results in a more hydrated and elastic surface. It is also an effective anti-irritant and leaves a smooth, dry feel on skin.
Together, all these ingredients work symbiotically to target hair loss and promote new growth and healthier looking hair.
It’s worth noting that Grow New Hair Shampoo doesn’t contain any of the crap in our usual fare. No parabans, no artificial dyes or colors, no artificial fragrance, and most critically: no sulfates!
A $6 grocery store shampoo will say it contains some of the above ingredients, but the quantity is so small compared to the filler and chemical base, those quality ingredients so rarely offsets the damage done by the other crap.
When you pay more for a quality, plant-based and balanced shampoo like this one, it’s ALL goodness without the toxic and cheap base chemicals, and you can use far less per shampooing for the same cleansing and nourishing effect.
Grow New Hair Shampoo Reviews
So what do people think of this shampoo? As with any hair loss product, this isn’t the perfect solution for every single person, and so there’s a mix of reviews. But, most are pretty darn positive.
On Amazon.com, this shampoo has an average rating of 4 out of 5 stars with over 50 reviews at the time of this blog entry. That means way more fans than not!
Let’s look in more detail at the pros and cons of Grow New Hair:
- Helps stop breakage
- Hair stops falling out
- More volume
- New hair growth seen in as little as a month
- Smells awesome
- Makes hair softer
- Lathers well
- Some experienced it leaving a film
- Some plant extract ingredients may trigger allergies
- Some experienced more static
- Should be used with the matching conditioner for best results
- Some saw results only after 6 months of use (so, technically this is both a pro and a con!)
Here’s one positive review from a woman that I found on their website, that I found pretty incredible and encouraging:
“I have been using the grow new hair shampoo and conditioner for a month…..maybe even a little longer. The difference is unbelievable. My stylist cannot believe the change in my hair. My hair started to fall out, I was panicking and went for a scalp analysis.
They wanted to charge me $1800 for treatment which is way too steep for my wallet. I saw this product on pinterest and read all the positive reviews and decided why not try it. I am glad I did. I can see the regrowth in my part and my hair is thicker too. I am not seeing the pile of hair in the drain either. I just ordered it for my daughter who has damaged her hair with a flat iron.
I highly recommend this product and can’t say thank you enough.”

For those who are combating hair loss, you may find these products to be helpful:
- Bald Spot Treatment

These contain similar ingredients to the Grow New Hair Shampoo, and their reviews are along the same lines.
But they also offer products for those who are interested in a more natural approach to hair care, even if thinning and balding aren’t a concern.
This includes a line of styling products (Organic Herbal Gel, Anti-Humidity Pomade), and even products for African American hair (Pre-Wash Hair Treatment, Nutritive Hair Setting Lotion).
Of course, I cannot possibly review each individual product. Though, it does seem that they are a company committed to natural, real-ingredient products.
Overall: Grow New Hair Shampoo May Help Grow New Hair
Disclaimer: I’m a big fan of Just Nutritive products. They’re natural, well-researched, they’re superbly well-reviewed.
But, it can take some time to see changes whenever you switch to a new hair product or care regimen. You must be consistent, using the product for six to 12 weeks to see what impact, if any, it has on your hair.
And while this may seem like a long time, keep in mind that many people who are switching from off-the-shelf products that contain additives will need to wash multiple times with the new shampoo to even remove all of the build up left behind by the previous products.
