If you’ve been looking for hair growth treatments for a while, you’ve probably come across more than one Pura D’Or review already. Or maybe you’ve spied one of those golden-labelled bottles already, either in your research or in a friend’s bathroom.
It’s a really popular brand – and not just for those experiencing hair loss or thinning hair. Pura D’Or is great for everyone, really. Especially for those who want glossy-looking and healthy hair. Which includes a lot of people, aside from perhaps us baldies. 😉
But even if you don’t have much – or any – hair to begin with, I’d still recommend Pura D’Or’s range to cleanse and care for your scalp. I’ll get into the brand’s many benefits in a sec but basically, I love it because it’s affordable, it doesn’t contain a zillion chemicals and it makes many of those lovely oils I recommend for hair growth in addition to its very popular shampoos and conditioners.
In this review, I’ll focus mainly on Pura D’Or’s shampoo, simply because it’s their most popular product. And even though they make a few different shampoos now, it all started with the original: Pura D’Or Original Gold Label Anti-Thinning Shampoo.
This organic-certified treatment is still one of the most popular hair loss shampoos around… even though it’s not actually a shampoo for hair loss – it’s more like a shampoo for thinning hair.
The benefits of this baby are numerous and include:
Now, I know these numbers can be inflated through all kinds of nasty means but still…10,000 positive Pura D’or shampoo reviews on Amazon (and counting) is still pretty impressive! Most reviewers mention how it gives them smoother, silkier hair that’s soft to touch, and plenty of them mention how it helps with hair growth issues, too.
The gold label shampoo’s got superstar ingredients to offer the best possible hair care, whether you have a full mop or you just want a great scalp moisturizer. One of those ingredients, biotin, works to thicken each hair follicle – so your strands will be less likely to become brittle or dry, and less prone to snapping. Phew!
It’s nice to be nice, right? Especially when we’re talking about being kind to the environment while being kind to our bodies. And Pura D’Or helps you do both – for instance, it’s organically certified and uses the most bioavailable botanical ingredients. Plus, it’s free from the compounds that get a bad rep, like sulfates, parabens and gluten, too. Yay!
It’s a great policy, right?! One of the things I really like about this brand is that they don’t make false promises. Just like my other favourite brand, Nioxin, they never claim to be “a hair loss shampoo”. Rather, they market their product as an “anti-thinning shampoo”; one that provides a better scalp environment so that regrowth may occur. So don’t expect miracles but do expect some serious moisture!
Again, I’ll focus on the gold label anti-thinning shampoo: it’s like the brand’s flagship product, if shampoos could be ships! 😉 The lovely brown bottle contains a tasty blend of 17 active ingredients, including premium oils and other botanical compounds. Here are 5 ones that are particularly nourishing for dry, damaged or frizzy hair…
LA Says: I won’t bore you with the remaining 12 ingredients! But Pura D’Or includes more great natural ingredients like nettle, pumpkin seed oil, cedarwood, clary sage and cumin extract, which will further nourish your scalp for healthier hair. Many of these ingredients block DHT, too, in a natural way.
If I was going to review every single product that Pura D’Or offers – and there are lots – I’d be here forever! But here are a few of its most popular ones, which you can check out in addition to the Gold Label Shampoo.
Good news: Nope! Unless you happen to have an allergic reaction to some of the natural botanicals (which is very rare), you won’t see any bad side effects to using Pura D’Or. And you can use it every day, if you like… it’s plant-based formula is pretty gentle so it won’t strip your hair of its natural oils. Phew.
If you do happen to be one of the few people who experiences mild scalp irritation or a change in hair texture (not in a good way), and if this still happens two weeks in, I’d switch to another product.
Full disclosure? I don’t think that any topical shampoo can miraculously boost hair growth on its own. Because hair loss depends on such a range of factors, including diet and lifestyle, that one shampoo alone can’t reverse this condition. Or at least, not in the long-term.
However, I do appreciate that offering a healthier scalp environment means a BIG step in helping regrowth. Which is something that Pura D’Or can do in spades.
The shampoo works to strengthen and volumize your hair from root to tip – reducing the chances of it snapping or breaking and, as a result, limiting hair loss. The conditioner moisturizes the scalp and brings down inflammation. While the oils boost blood flow; a very important point if you’re going to expect hair follicles to do their thing.
In conclusion, you might not see immediate results… But switching to Pura D’Or products will at least mean that you’re treating your head to natural, hair-boosting ingredients. Being kinder to it than whatever harsh chemicals are in your usual shampoo. And it’s all really affordable, too.
For me, anyway, that’s reason enough to check it out!
