Promotes Natural Hair Growth
Growth factors are a cutting edge technology, pioneered by Nanogen for treating thinning hair.
Reduces Hair Loss
VEGF is a growth factor like the ones humans produce naturally. VEGF maintains hair growth and ensures nutrients and oxygen reach the hair, allowing it to grow. It also acts against the factors that cause thinning hair.
Complex actives protect the hair from damage and further help reduce hair loss. Other nourishing and repairing ingredients also work to maintain a healthy scalp and ensure a stable, healthy platform for hair growth.
Hair Growth Factors to Reduce hair loss
Nanogen sh-VEGF hair growth serum is a unique plant derived growth factor in combination with another active to make the effect more pronounced. Healthy hair growth is controlled by a natural cycle, with every individual hair at a different stage of the cycle. Nanogen sh-VEGF complex specifically supports and protects hair while reducing future hair loss.
How does natural VEGF act on the hair?
For hair to grow as part of the natural hair cycle, or for new hairs to grow, a growth phase called Anagen needs to be stimulated. 3 stages are required to bring about Anagen and healthy hair growth:
The base of a hair follicle contains a form of stem cells called dermal papilla; these cells need to multiply rapidly to create the cells that form hair.
Proliferation reuqires much nutrition and oxygen, VEGF causes vasodilation and increased bloodflow which supports this growth.
When these cells have multiplied, they must move to particular positions to form the structure of the hair. This means they need they communicate with eachother, and organise their "cellular skeleton" to enable them to move.
VEGF increases glycoprotein production in certain cells, these glycoproteins allow cells to communicate, move and adhere to each other. VEGF acts as a signal for migration itself in certain cases, and increases vasodilation, allowing the movement of cells.
Growing hair needs nutrients & oxygen, so new small blood vessels form to feed the growing hair, this is called Angiogenesis.
VEGF promotes angiogenesis in new hair follicles, but also in existing hair that isn't getting enough oxygen. It also increases another signal called nitric oxide, which causes existing blood vessels to become wider, and more blood to reach where it is needed.
A hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) signals the end of the hair growth phase, bringing about a brief transfer phase called Catagen. It is created from Testosterone by an enzyme called 5α reductase. Many ingredients, such as finasteride, aim to block this reaction and so stop the signal ending the growth phase. DHT acts by activating a whole range of genes to cause the death of hair follicle cells, and the loss of the hair. VEGF acts to temporarily suppress these genes, and helps protect the hair from falling prematurely.
After the hair has fallen out naturally, the hair enters a phase called Telogen. VEGF reduces the time that hair spends in this resting phase by stimulating genes for re-entry into the hair growth phase, Anagen.
Nanogen Proprietary sh-VEGF Complex
The safe, plant derived growth factors in Nanogen sh-VEGF Complex support any hair loss treatment.
The growth factors act to help reduce hair loss, and maintain healthy hair and scalp condition.
Provides broad spectrum antioxidant protection and may help to maintain levels of nitric oxide signals. This prevents damage to the hair follicle and maintains blood flow.
Hydrolysed Lupine Extract
Protects the hair from damage that may cause it to fall, reducing hair loss. Maintains cell metabolic rates in the growing hair follicle.
Soothing and Moisturising Ingredients
Niacinamide and beta-glucan combined prevent redness and irritation, and support wound healing to promote a healthy scalp.
Serum VEGF is safe and free from:
SLS and SLES
These common surfactants are very harsh and drying to hair. They can also leave skin dry and irritated when left on the skin for long periods of time, such as with Serum VEGF. Whilst not dangerous, SLS and SLES can be drying, irritating, and pore-blocking, which may lead to folliculitis. Therefore no Nanogen product contains SLS or SLES.
Many people worry about the group of preservatives called parabens. Nanogen do not believe these are harmful, but appreciate our client's concerns and so all our products are paraben free.
Glycols such as propylene glycol are common preservatives and solvents. These can be pore-blocking and irritating, and so no Nanogen products contains any form of glycol.
Many common preservatives in cosmetics are formaldehyde donors. These are not dangerous, but formaldehyde will damage skin and growing hair cells, so no Nanogen product contains them.
Use 1ml once every day. For best results use after Scalproller. Unscrew the cap. Draw 1ml into the pipette by rapidly pumping the bulb several times. Apply the pipette directly to your scalp. Squeeze the rubber bulb very gently to dispense drops evenly over your scalp. Gently massage the drops to cover the thinning area, then allow to dry, you do not need to rinse. Do not exceed the stated dosage.
"I was all ready to schedule a hair transplant for approx. $10,000 when I learned of this product. I was extremely skeptical based on the spray-on TV ads that I heard would run & smear when a person got hot and started sweating. As a professional entertainer my appearance is vital, and the top of my hair was thinning quickly and when I saw photos of the stage lights on me, it was very obvious how bad and see-through my hair was getting. Thick on the back and sides, straight through to the scalp on the top middle area. This product make me laugh out loud in absolute disbelief. I never thought anything could look so natural and be such an affordable fix. Now I don't have to get my scalp cut apart and spend thousands of dollars, all I need is to have a steady supply of Nanogen on-hand. My wife would be the first to be tell me if this looked bad, she was also in disbelief of how natural this looks, it simply blends in and looks like I have a thick head of hair! I can't recommend this enough and suggest everyone try it before considering something as dire and expensive as surgery (that is not even guaranteed to work). Here is the ultimate and amazing fix, confidence restored, now...on with the show!"

"It was a huge step for me to even buy this product, but feeling pretty low after having difuse hair loss for over a year after both of my pregnancies and some recent stress which exacberated the situation I am no longer worried about harsh lighting revealing my sparce crown or constantly asking my husband if he can see my scalp through my ever moving parting...wow, this product has given me such a boost and has given me my confidence back. I am no longer stressing or thinking about my hair all of the time which im sure will help with regrowth! and more importantly allowing me to get on with life - Thank you Nanogen."

"Wow, this product really works. I just received my order today and I tried it out and it looks amazing. I had a thinning spot on the back of my head and it has now disappeared. I can't stop looking at myself in the mirror now. Thank You Nanogen"

"I must admit I was pleased with the product. It's not perfect, but out of all the products that I have used, Nanogen is by far the best. When used with the locking mist and correct color, you'll be hard pressed to notice the difference. You can use hair spray instead but the results are far better with locking mist IMO.
- Color looks natural
- When used with locking mist it doesn't flake on your clothes.
- It's semi water proof
- Affordable; reasonable price.
- Easy to apply.
- You can sleep with it and it wont stain your pillows.
- Don't scratch your head unless you want black fingernails.
- It's semi water proof.
- Sometimes there is a minor difference in quality (though not enough to make a big fuss).

"I am a female and I previously used Toppik Hair Fibers to cover my balding areas. I began to notice that my head was always itching, I was getting little bumps on my scalp and I was starting to lose hair much more rapidly! I went online and researched all types of hair fibers. Then I came upon information from others stating that after they used Toppik for awhile they quickly started losing hair rapidly also! They said it is because it has aluminum in it! I promptly stopped using it and was miserable when I looked so bald again! I again researched online and found the Nanofibers and tried that! I can not tell you how happy I am with this product. It covers my balding areas so much better than any other product that I have ever used. My head does not itch at all and even my own hair looks better now! The Nanofibers are not powdery and stay in place so well it is amazing! I recommend this product to anyone with a hair loss problem! I love it!"
