The Anti-Aging Haircare Hero: How Niacinamide Keeps Your Hair Youthful

Known widely for its benefits in skincare, niacinamide also holds incredible anti-aging properties for your hair. Let's delve into how this powerhouse ingredient can keep your hair looking youthful, vibrant, and full of life.

What is Niacinamide?

Niacinamide, also known as nicotinamide, is a form of vitamin B3, an essential nutrient that supports various bodily functions. Unlike its cousin niacin (nicotinic acid), niacinamide does not cause skin flushing and redness, making it an excellent choice for topical applications in both skincare and haircare products.

Niacinamide and Hair Aging

As we age, our hair undergoes several changes – it may become thinner, lose its luster, and become more prone to damage. These changes are often due to a combination of factors including hormonal changes, environmental damage, and a decrease in the production of essential proteins like keratin. This is where niacinamide comes in as a game-changer for maintaining youthful hair.

How Niacinamide works to keep your hair youthful

 It was found that the ingredient helps make hair look better by boosting keratin levels and strengthening the hair's protective barrier.

Another study showed that niacinamide can calm scalp inflammation, creating a healthier environment for hair growth. Niacinamide can reduce levels of DKK-1, a protein that causes hair follicles to shrink, helping to prevent early hair loss and protect hair cells from damage.

The Protein Shake Hair Mask also features other beneficial ingredients like castor oil, mint extract, and our patented KeraPlantin™ compound, which is proven to increase hair strength by 2.2x and reduce split ends and breakage by 53%.
