Majestic Pure Shampoo is a natural hair loss prevention product containing 14 different DHT blockers and high quality essential oils.
The company is also heavily involved in making essential oils, and is based in the US. It comes in at under $20 for a 16 oz bottle, which, as you know, is a bargain in the land of hair loss products.
The shampoo is marketed to both men and women, and they claim it’s safe for color-treated hair as well as natural hair.
What’s in it?
Let’s look at the ingredients list:
Deionized Purified Water, Decyl Glucoside, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine , Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sufonate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Polyquaternium 71, Cocamide MIPA,Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Polyquaternium 80, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Argania Spinosa kernel Argan oil, Biotin (Vitamin H), Nigella Sativa Oil, Phyllanthus emblica, Urtica dioica extract, Serenoa Serrulata extract, Cedrus atlantica oil, Rosmarinus officinalis, Salvia Sclarea oil, Polygonum Multiflorum Root, Citrus Medica Limonum oil, Hibiscus Rosa-sinensis Extract, Nicotinic acid Niacin, Zinc Pyrithione, Tocopherol Vitamin E, Soy Isoflavone, Beta Sitosterol, Camellia sinensis, Sorbitan Oleate Decyglucoside Crosspolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl, Ethylhexyl Glycerin, Hexylene Glycol and Citric Acid, Panax ginseng root extract, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract
So…. most of these are latin names for plants, but I can pick out many of the ones relevant to hair loss.
- First, Melaleuca Alternifolia – Tea tree oil, known for its hair loss and skin soothing qualities.
- Second, Argania Spinosa – commonly known as Argan oil, also beneficial for hair and scalp.
- Third, Biotin – a crucial ingredient for hair loss prevention. So crucial, in fact, that we recommend separate supplementation
- Fourth, Nigella Sativa Oil, otherwise known as Black Cumin oil. This is a first for our research, and there are no obvious immediate hair loss benefits to black cumin, although taken internally, it does seem to be an anti-inflammatory. Perhaps it acts as a booster for some of the other ingredients.
- Fifth, Phyllanthus emblica, or Indian Gooseberry, a crucial ingredient in Aruvedic medicine and most commonly seen in the west as part of the Triphala supplement. Again, I haven’t heard of this as a hair loss remedy, but it is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
- Sixth, Polygonum Multiflorum Root, otherwise known as Fo-Ti, the Chinese herb used for thousands of years to treat weight loss and even greying hair.
- Seventh, Citrus Medica Limonum oil, or lemon peel oil, known to provide balance to the scalp and skin.
- Eighth, Hibiscus Rosa-sinensis Extract, with a self-explanatory name. Hibiscus is a scientifically proven hair growth agent.
- Ninth, Panax ginseng root extract, or Korean Red Ginseng, which has a tremendous amount of health properties and has been used in Korea for thousands of years to help with hair loss.
- Tenth, Tumeric extract, which is a known powerful antioxidant.
- Eleventh, lots of the usual suspects: Niacin, Zinc, Vitamin E – all known vitamins and minerals that provide aid to unhealthy scalps and skin and prevent shedding hair.
Whew, that was a lot! Noteworthy: Majestic Pure Shampoo does not contain caffeine.
Overall, this shampoo seems to be taking a comprehensive, natural-products approach to re-balancing the scalp and encouraging our heads to regrow hair and hold onto the hair we already have.
I think it’s really interesting to see so many different ingredients from around the globe and different medical traditions in one shampoo. I have to assume that Majestic Pure consulted with their master aromatherapists to come up with this specific blend.
What do people think?
At the time of this review, Majestic Pure Hair Loss Shampoo has an average 4.5/5 star rating from nearly 600 reviews on Amazon.com. For this many reviews on an unbiased site, a 4.5 average is quite an accomplishment.
People who love it say that it’s cheaper than the competition (mainly Pura d’Or), and that the smell is gender neutral and pleasant. They report less hair loss and breakage over weeks of use, and leaves their hair soft and shiny.
Most say you have to stick with it to see a difference, but luckily it comes in a price point where several weeks or months of usage is doable for most of us.
Because Majestic Pure doesn’t contain sulfates, which are lathering agents, the shampoo doesn’t lather well, but this should be a familiar feature for most of us who’ve tried various hair loss shampoos. The sulfates do more harm than good, and it’s terrific that more and more shampoos are leaving them out.
How to Use Majestic Pure Shampoo:
Like most shampoos, this one is pretty darn straightforward. Put it on wet hair, lather, wait two minutes for the shampoo to penetrate your scalp, and then rinse fully.
This shampoo is appropriate to use daily, and recommended to be used a minimum of 4-5 times a week.
- No animal testing
- Made in USA, San Diego California in fact
- Sulfate free
- Contains many medicinal essential oils not found in most other hair loss shampoos
- Contains Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, which can be harsh on colored or dyed hair
- Does not lather well due to lack of sulfates
- Due to wide variety of essential oils, may provoke allergic reactions from some
- Does not contain caffeine
Majestic Pure Shampoo is an affordable DHT blocking shampoo, clocking in at the time of this review at under $20.
For those of us who have spent a pretty penny on hair loss products, any hair loss shampoo under the $20 mark is worth investigating.
For those who’d rather try a caffeine shampoo, and can afford to spend a little more to see how well it works, check out my review of the leading one, Ultrax Hair Surge.
Majestic Pure contains a fascinating array of natural essential oils known for their medicinal properties, in Ayurvedic medicine, Traditional Chinese medicine, and Korean medicine. I like that this shampoo is globe-spanning in its scope and I would recommend giving it a shot, particularly if you’re on a budget or have no known allergies to herbs and plants.
