What are Peptides?

Peptides are fundamental to the construction of protein. The building blocks of protein may be amino acids, and the next step is the formation of peptides which are linked amino acids that will then form larger proteins such as collagen and keratin for your scalp and hair. Peptides, though being a step below large proteins, can serve as catalysts in your body for multiple important processes, including that of stimulating hair growth, working as growth hormones, and fighting bacteria. Without peptides, your body's natural processes would essentially come to a halt and proteins would have no instruction. 

Biology aside, peptides are essential to the maintenance of your health and beauty. Products that use peptides for hair growth are generally advertised to be nourishing by increasing both blood flow to your targeted body part and boosting keratin production. Products that use peptides for other parts of your body act in the same manner, usually through the provision of specific peptides that boost a target protein's production.

You may associate building proteins with bodybuilding and muscle growth, and that is a correct line of thought. However, peptide supplements do so much more for our bodies in terms of retaining youth and facilitating natural cycles that would have otherwise slowed down with age. Examples include the slowed production of collagen in our skin, keratin in our hair, and even the speed of our muscle growth.

Peptides for Hair growth

Moisturizers that contain peptides can lead to firmer, younger-looking skin, and when skin is firmer, it tends to be less porous and thus can help with reducing acne breakouts. When used in your scalp, it has the same effect and strengthens your hair follicles. Peptides also act as a natural anti-inflammatory, so it reduces redness and irritation, so it is a great thing to have to prevent dandruff from ever forming on your scalp.

Peptides for hair growth are found in a variety of products, but different products have different peptides in them that target specific protein types. For the best peptides for hair growth, consider what problem, such as split end damage or dandruff, that the product is targeting to optimize your hair growth. That being said, here are three different peptides, what they specialize in, and what products you’ll find them in.

1. Copper Peptides

The most effective peptides for hair growth are Copper Peptides. They are widely considered beneficial to your scalp and hair because they improve blood flow to the scalp. Increased blood flow translates to higher nutrition, collagen production, and elasticity in your scalp, which can then support an increase in hair growth. RKT Shampoo and Conditioner contain Copper Peptides. With strong hair follicles, your hair will have the potential to grow both thicker and longer.

2. Collagen Peptides

Collagen supplements help slow down skin aging most notably by returning youthful elasticity to your skin. That being said, collagen peptides for hair growth provide the same type of help to any scalp problems involving nutrition. Collagen peptides are not usually found in topical treatments because they are in a dissovled form called hydrolyzed collagen, which is collagen that's been reduced to its baser structures so that they will be easily processed by your body into actual collagen that you can utilize.

3. Keratin Peptides

Keratin peptides are a great stimulant for hair growth. As a catalyst of the sort, they target the growth of new hair cells such as keratin as well as the growth of other cells surrounding the hair follicles. However, keratin peptides are capable of serving as hair straightening because adding keratin as a bonus nourishment allows for more layers of keratin to develop along the hair shaft. Keratin peptides improve the tensile strength and elasticity of hair directly by supporting the hair shaft. 

Products with Peptides for Hair Growth

When searching for products with peptides for hair growth, you should start by looking for a natural ingredients list. Products with peptides tend to be high-end and focused on treatment. Such examples of treatment include a focus on hair growth, hair thinning, or perhaps dandruff that accumulates from a malnourished scalp.

RKT Hair Care products all contain peptides for hair growth because RKT hair focuses on scalp treatment. Peptides are a core part of scalp nourishment as facilitators of both blood flow to the targeted area and various protein productions. RKT shampoo and conditioner use peptides to nourish good scalp health and thus, hair growth. While other products may contain peptides, RKT shampoo, and conditioner also use primarily natural ingredients to boost the effectiveness of the present peptides.

A combination of natural nourishment and peptides for hair growth will ensure consumers will have a healthy scalp that is capable of producing voluminous hair. Although products may advertise the use of peptides, they should also contain other nourishing natural ingredients such as coconut oil, shea butter, aloe, or niacinamides to complete a formula for optimal hair growth. If a product has silicones, sulfates, or parabens, which are harmful ingredients, it may negatively impact the effects of peptides on hair growth.

Repairing hair damage

Peptides for hair growth produce the best result when combined with natural moisturizers because a healthy environment for your scalp is needed in order to produce any proteins at all. Silicones, sulfates, and parabens are scalp irritants that affect hair growth when they cause inflammation or dryness in the scalp, which is suboptimal in the production of hair.

RKT scalp treatment also works in tandem with peptides for hair growth by stimulating hair follicles into the production of proteins for hair. Ingredients like caffeine and castor oil activate several nerves through topical application, and in combination with peptides for hair growth, you'll have the necessary ingredients for growing a bed of voluminous, healthy hair.
