There are a variety of reasons you may be experiencing hair loss, hair thinning, or graying of the hair. However, one of the most common reasons for these symptoms is menopause. Menopause is a point in time that occurs 12 months after a woman’s last period. It involves a change in hormones that are normal as women age. Typically taking place between the ages of 45 and 55, many women may struggle with feeling vulnerable.
Having proper hair care during this difficult time is one way to feel comfortable in one’s skin. In order to stop or slow the frequency of hair loss, a variety of treatments may be suggested. This could include scalp massages, multivitamins, special shampoos, essential oils, and other forms of supplements. However, finding the right product for you is essential.
Waphyto products feature five highly functional, natural ingredients: mulberry, chrysanthemum (Japanese calendula), gotu kola, mugwort and horsetail (Japanese sugina). These natural ingredients were hand-picked by experts studying the effects of varying plants and natural phenomenon on a person’s skin. The ingredients in each of the Waphyto products are extracted using a saturated steam pressure cyclone method, allowing for natural products free of synthetic colorants, synthetic fragrances, parabens, phenoxyethanol and ethanol that may harm the natural balance of the skin and hair follicles.
Waphyto founder Atsuko Morita, a plant scientist and phytotherapist, has studied varying Japanese plants and their impacts for years. She uses her research and background to create natural, inviting products that she uses, herself. After suffering through her own hair loss journey, Morita used a mixture of horsetail, mulberry, ginseng, and hawthorn to regain her hair.
Through her own difficulties, Morita created Waphyto’s Scalp Lotion. It is the perfect solution for the challenges of dull, dry, aging, thinning or graying hair as well as maintaining a healthy scalp. Along with promoting healthier, more vibrant hair, the scalp lotion is easy to apply and contains no chemicals, like all of the Waphyto products.
Thanks to Morita’s extensive research into the benefits of horsetail, a plant used as traditional Japanese medicine for centuries, the scalp lotion can ease the fluctuations of hormones impacting the scalp. Thus, it is one of the most important ingredients in Waphyto’s Scalp Lotion. The horsetail spore stem known as Tsukushi, or “earth brush,” appears above the ground in spring. Because its leaves contain a lot of silicon and have astringent effects on the skin, the lotion aids the scalp in restoring minerals and regenerating the hair and skin.
Though not a part of the lotion, one to two cups of horsetail herbal tea a day can even be drunk for preventive care of gray hair!
