For the past two years or so, we’ve witnessed the skinification of the scalp — essentially, treating the scalp and hair with the same reverence as we do for our face. In the same way that lifestyle factors affect our skin, it takes a toll on the hair as well.
Even being too stressed from work can affect the hair as well — high levels of cortisol, or the stress hormone, can force large numbers of hair follicles into a resting phase, resulting in slower hair growth. The scalp also gets older six times faster than we do, causing hair to become weaker and more prone to breakage.
Fighting against stress-induced hair loss requires holistic solutions and with this in mind, homegrown label Miriqa has reformulated their hair supplements for even stronger, healthier and shinier hair. The previous version has won the ELLE Beauty Awards 2021 for its visible and consistent results, and the new formulation is set to do even more with two exciting new ingredients.
The first addition, winter cherry extract, reduces cortisol levels and helps to build resistance against stress. This prompts the hair follicles to move into a growth phase, enhancing overall hair growth. The stress-reduction effect also benefits the body holistically — it acts as an adaptogen, which can counteract the long-term damage of chronic stress.
The other addition, a patented curcumin blend, is well-known as a powerful antioxidant, which improves hair growth by protecting the scalp cells. Combined with acacia gum and sunflower oil, this particular variant also is also absorbed 700 per cent faster than other formulations.
Alongside these two new extracts, each capsule is formulated with well-known hair growth ingredients like tripeptide collagen, biotin, and keratin to boost hair growth and resilience. And if you’re a regular at the nail salon, the supplement also helps to strengthen and repair damaged nails, making for a multitasking beauty ace and a confidence booster for those with hair fall issues.
Miriqa Hair Extra Strength Nutrition Supplement is available at selected clinics islandwide.
