A METHOD AND COMPOSITION FOR HAIR REVIVAL

(WO2004084849) 07.10.2004 A61K 8/60 SHIN, Suk-Bong
The present invention relates to a method for regrowing hair by the telogen phase-breaking action of converting the telogen phase to anagen phase of the hair cycle. According to the method, shrunk hair follicles are activated by the immunity-boosting action of -glucan. The activated hair follicles are supplied with sugars as nutrients to revive the hair follicles. Sebum that is secreted by the active cell division action of the revived hair follicles is prevented from being accumulated on the scalp in the form of lipid peroxide, by an antioxidant. Also, the present invention provides a hair growth composition, which has reliable effects on hair loss prevention and hair growth, and does not cause side effects on the scalp.
