How It Works & Evidence of Benefit
  • Grape seeds, fruit, skins, and even grape leaves contain high levels of beneficial antioxidant flavonoids such as quercetin, oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC) polymers, resveratrol, tannins, and fruit acids. 135

  • Antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties—particularly helpful in cases of folliculitis decalvans, a type of cicatricial (permanent) hair loss that is prone to bacterial infections. 79

  • Grapes can help block free radical damage that contributes to hair loss. The OPCs in grape seeds and grape seed extracts are particularly potent antioxidants —50 times stronger than vitamin A and vitamin C135

  • Helps regulate the immune system response. 135

  • OPCs stimulate terminal hairs to move from telogen to anagen growth phase135

  • Grape seed oil is rich in linoleic acid, a vital nutrient for hair. It can be used for cooking, as a supplement, and as a carrier oil for other essential herbal extracts and applied topically or used in other aromatherapy options. 37

  • Note: Be careful to avoid consuming too much grape juice and grapes if you are diabetic because of the sugar content. 37
