Wasabi – A Cure For Hair Loss?

Wasabi – A Cure For Hair Loss?

Wasabi for hair loss


The origin of the hair transplant dates back to the 19th century. It was in 1897 that Dr. Menahem Hodara for the first time transplanted hair taken from an area of the scalp to a bald area. Then in the 1930s, modern transplantation techniques emerged in Japan, initially to correct only the eyebrows. More recently, new discoveries have emerged in the field of baldness. It would seem that the famous wasabi, this ultra-hot green paste that accompanies sushi, has components promoting hair regrowth!

If you suffer from hair loss, answer these 3 questions to discover the best treatment option for you.

A miracle plant?

Researchers have found that the wasabi components, isosaponarin and 6-MSITC, stimulate the papilla cells to start making hair again. Unfortunately, there is no point loading up on sushi and using wasabi daily to enjoy the virtues of this plant as it’s supposed to be applied directly to the hair and not swallowed.

Many remedies already exist to fight hair loss, but Japanese researchers say that wasabi is three times more powerful than the commercially available products today. For the more adventurous, it would be a question of obtaining the famous green plant and grating it before applying the mixture on the scalp…

A better alternative

For those who prefer to choose a hair loss solution with proven, permanent and natural results, Hair Implantation remains the best remedy. Life changing results can be achieved in a single day, with no detectable scarring and minimal downtime. Continue to eat sushi with wasabi if you like it hot and spicy, and trust us to restore your hair.
