How Red Wine Prevents Hair Loss
You will be happy to know that drinking about one glass (unfortunately not one bottle…) of red wine a day has been shown to prevent hair loss. Red wine increases circulation to the scalp which helps to ensure that hair can grow to be healthy and strong. Additionally, the extra blood flow strengthens the blood vessels in the scalp which eliminates the production of dandruff. Just be sure not to overdose on the wine though….
External Application of Red Wine to Prevent Hair Loss
The key mechanism that makes red wine the best shampoo to prevent hair loss is that is reduces inflammation in cells. This helps to promote hair growth. Now using red wine as a hair loss shampoo might sound a little crazy….and you might be thinking that I have had a little too much red wine! The best way to apply red wine to the hair and scalp is to dilute it in water. This will help your hair become soft after the wine is rinsed out with your normal shampoo. Experts recommend spraying the hair and scalp with the dilute mixture and leaving it sit on your hair for 30 minutes. If you do not dilute the red wine it leave the hair feeling a bit dry.
Pro Tip: Avoid getting any red wine in your eyes when spraying it on your hair and scalp. Trust me it stings really bad!
