Natural ingredients clinically proven to improve hair growth.
The stress -> hair connection.
When you experience stress, your body produces excess stress hormones like cortisol. Chronically elevated cortisol causes follicle-damaging inflammation and oxidation, which shortens the hair growth cycle.
The good news? You can improve how your body reacts to stress so your hair and health stay resilient.Learn more

How stress stunts hair growth.
It all starts with cortisol.
Cortisol is a hormone primarily produced by the adrenal glands in order to help your body react to stressful situations. New research shows it’s also created in the scalp. Chronic stress can lead to elevated levels of this hair-damaging hormone.
How this affects the follicles.
Follicles are very sensitive to cortisol. Research has shown that the hair follicle actually has its own internal stress axis that produces cortisol in response to stressors. When the hair follicle is signaled by cortisol, the growth cycle shifts from the anagen (growth) phase to catagen (rest) phase prematurely. This means hair is no longer actively growing, and is preparing to fall out. When there are more hair follicles in catagen than in anagen, you may notice excessive hair shedding–more than 100 hairs per day.
