Hair Growth Shampoo: The Ingredients To Look Out For

There are certain hair-loving ingredients that are thought to help stimulate hair growth when used as part of your hair care routine. Discover the best ingredients for hair growth below: 


Also known as Vitamin B7, Biotin helps to encourage the rate of hair follicle growth. It stimulates the production of Keratin and is thought to be particularly beneficial for those with thinning hair.  


When included in your hair care routine, caffeine helps to increase blood circulation to the scalp, improving the health of your hair follicles. This can help to stimulate the scalp, creating a great environment for natural hair growth. 

Argan Oil 

Argan Oil is a fantastic ingredient for scalp care. It’s rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatories that are good for the skin, and can help keep the scalp moisturised and healthy. 


Allantoin is a natural ingredient renowned for its skin and hair care benefits. Its keratolytic action helps to treat and/or prevent a dry, itchy scalp, working to nourish and condition. By caring for the scalp, it creates an optimum environment for hair growth.  

Best Shampoo for Hair Loss

Switch out your everyday shampoo for a targeted hair growth shampoo that’s rich in hair-loving ingredients, including the ones listed above. 

Try the Watermans Grow Me Shampoo to deliver a formulation of invigorating ingredients directly to the scalp. Rich in those ingredients, including Biotin, Argan Oil, Caffeine, and Allantoin, as well as Niacinamide, Lupine Protein and Rosemary, our shampoo supports a healthy hair care routine to encourage strong, natural hair growth when used regularly.  

How to Use Hair Growth Shampoo

Apply to wet hair. Take time to massage the product into the scalp, using circular motions to stimulate the hair follicles. Rinse thoroughly, then follow with Condition Me Conditioner to inject moisture to the lengths and tips.  

What to Use Alongside Hair Growth Shampoo

Scalp Treatment

Now you’ve found the perfect shampoo for supporting healthy hair growth, why not go one step further with a targeted scalp treatment? 

The Watermans Grow More Elixir is an invigorating overnight scalp treatment that features an innovative blend of those hair-loving ingredients mentioned earlier. Applied regularly, it provides the scalp with an added boost, nourishing the hair follicles and creating the best environment for hair growth. 

How to use: Apply directly to the scalp. Massage the product all around the scalp and leave in overnight to encourage maximum results.  

Hair Growth Vitamins

To take your vitamin and mineral intake one step further and ensure your body is receiving the correct amount of hair growth ingredients, why not include a hair growth vitamin in your routine? 

Taken orally like other supplements, the Grow Pro Hair Vitamins from Watermans deliver Biotin, Iron, Vitamin D3, and more to the body, providing it with the energy it needs to promote and support healthy hair, skin and nails.
