Nisim Hair Loss Shampoo Review

Pin it
Nisim hair loss shampoo is known to be effective in helping with hair loss and baldness. Here is a review of this hair loss product.

Before the Nisim F.A.S.T. Fortified Amino Scalp Therapy Products hit the market, Nisim was selling the NewHair BioFactors starting back in 1993.

This hair loss product line was sold exclusively through salons and authorized distributors only.

F.A.S.T. is the newest product by this company meant to help hair grow remarkably and noticeably fast.

  • There are hair loss shampoos, conditioners, extracts and kits to choose from as part of the product line.
  • There are also shampoos for different types of scalps and hair conditions including oily, normal and dry.
  • There is even a new sulfate free version of the Nisim hair loss shampoo.

The Three Nisim Shampoos

There are currently 3 shampoos under the Nisim brand. They are all also sold under the brand’s NewHair Biofactors label.

Two of these shampoos are very similar while the third differs considerably. One of the Nisim shampoos is meant for normal to dry hair while another is to be used on normal to oily hair.

The third Nisim shampoo is a sulfate-free formulation of the same NewHair Biofactors formula. However, this sulfate-free Nisim shampoo contains a different set of natural herb extracts than the other two.

Nisim shampoos are advertised to stop hair loss within one week of use. Although new hair growth will take longer to achieve, quite a number of users have reported positive results with these shampoos.

In a study involving 148 men, Nisim shampoo was shown to produce at least 30% new hair growth in in 86% of the men. For an all-natural product, this is an excellent result.

It is rather costly compared to other hair loss shampoos. Therefore, considering the cost of the shampoo and the other Nisim products supplied alongside, it may be prudent to try out Nisim shampoos before committing to long-term use.

The Nisim Hair Loss Shampoo Claims

As with most hair loss products, Nisim hair loss shampoo claims include:

  • To help even with excessive hair loss
  • Results within a week
  • Guaranteed results

Nisim Hair Loss Shampoo Ingredients

Inositol, distilled water, citric acid, biotin, sodium laurel sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, sodium chloride, cocamide DEA, herbal extract, panthenol, cysteine, methionine, fragrance, methylchlorisothiazolinone, cystine, cocamidopropyl betaine.

How The 3 Nisim Shampoos Differ

Two of the three Nisim shampoos (the ones made for dry and normal to oily scalps) are very similar because they share most of the same active ingredients.

Apart from preservatives and coloring agent, these two Nisim shampoos use sodium laury sulfate as their cleanser, citric acid to adjust scalp pH, cocamidopropyl betaine and cocamide MEA as foaming agents and sodium chloride as a thickening agent and an antiseptic.

However, the Nisim shampoo made for normal to dry scalp/hair adds dimethicone as a moisturizer and glycol distearate as a conditioner and supplementary thickening agent.

All the other active ingredients that promote hair health, stop hair loss and stimulate hair growth are shared by the three Nisim shampoos.

Herb extracts used in these Nisim products include Panax ginseng, Arnica montana, Hedera helix, Castanea sativa and Geranium maculatum.

These herb extracts contribute to hair and skin nutrition and also block the production and effects of DHT (dihydrotesterone) on the scalp and hair.

Also found in these Nisim shampoos are essential B vitamins and amino acids.

Members of the B vitamin complex such as biotin and panthenol contribute to scalp and hair nutrition by promoting protein and fat metabolism. When the cells of the hair follicle receive adequate nutrition, their cellular metabolism can proceed properly leading to the formation of more keratin, the hair protein.

Inositol, the other B vitamin present, is also useful in the same way. It promotes hair health by serving as a precursor to phospholipids which are used in cell structures and for maintaining the integrity of hair cell membranes.

The three amino acids found in Nisim shampoos are cysteine, cystine and methionine. Apart from serving as amino acids to be used in synthesizing proteins, they are all included for their ability to supply sulfur to hair cells.

Sulfur is responsible for providing the strong bonds that determine hair strength. It also contributes to the sheen and appearance of hair.

The sulfate-free Nisim shampoo also includes the amino acids and B vitamins above but has a different surfactant and cleanser. Instead of using sodium lauryl sulfate, this shampoo uses olefin sulfonate as a foaming and cleansing agent.

Other additives not found in the first two Nisim products are used in the sulfate-free formulation. These include disodium EDTA, DMDM hydantoin, palm kernelamide MEA, PEG-7 etc.

However, the most striking difference apart from the substitution of sodium lauryl sulfate is the herb extracts used in this Nisim shampoo.

There are four herb extracts formulated in the sulfate-free shampoo. These are Serenoa repens or saw palmetto, Camellia sinensis or green tea, Urtica doica and Capsicum annuum.

Saw palmetto is rich in plant sterols. It has been shown to be effective in reversing hair loss by blocking DHT which is responsible for male pattern alopecia.

Green tea, on the other hand, is a rich store of known hair loss remedies. It contains carotenoids and polyphenols as well as Vitamin C and E, zinc and selenium.

These active ingredients also inhibit DHT production and activity. Some of them are also the best known antioxidants and, in this way, they protect hair follicle cells from harmful free radicals.

How Nisim Reverses Hair Loss
Inhibits DHT production and action on hair cell
Protect hair cells through its antioxidant property
Supply nutrients to hair cell by contributing to protein and fat metabolism
Provide sulfur needed for forming the strong bonds that give hair strands their strength
Help maintain a healthy scalp and unclog hair follicles

The Nisim Hair Loss Story

This product originally gained popularity with women who had either received a bad haircut or wanted to speed up the growth process for various reasons.

From there it has grown to include those with hair loss issues and clinical studies followed.

The findings showed that:

  • One study reported significant regrowth amongst its participants who used Nisim. In fact, the number was as high as 40% success rate among participants.
  • Significant regrowth is classified as that which results in 100 percent, doubling or even tripling the number of terminal hairs.
  • Moderate regrowth was at almost 45 percent.
  • The remaining 14.3 percent reported no growth.
  • The study was carried out over a five month period in which participants used one bottle of Nisim hair loss shampoo a month.
  • It should also be noted that the experiment was conducted using males only, although women have been more commonly the ones using this product to increase hair growth.

Side Effects of Nisim Hair Loss Shampoo 

The Company states that there are no side effects associated with using Nisim Shampoo since it is made of natural ingredients.
