Apple Stem Cells: Aging Hair's Secret Weapon
By NewBeauty Staff |
Obtained from rare Swiss apple trees, stem cells have become a hot topic. Most recently, they have been incorporated into anti-aging formulas to help repair DNA damage and protect against environmental aggressors to restore your skin.
When incorporated into hair products, stem cells help to maintain healthy follicle cells to delay the effects of aging on the hair and scalp. Apple stem cells, the most common variety used in hair-care products, also possess unique characteristics to aid in hair growth.
"Stem cells work at the cellular level to maintain consistent cellular renewal. Apple stem cells stimulate the activity of dormant hair follicles to promote healthy hair growth," says Peter Lamas, celebrity hairstylist and founder of the Peter Lamas brand. Perhaps the effectiveness of stem cells on hair's vitality is why Lamas incorporated them into his powerhouse product Peter Lamas Chinese Herbs Regenerating Scalp Serum ($45).
