"It really has helped my hair get stronger in the last 2 months. I can see a clear thickness improvement, especially on the crown"

The plant-based way to thicker, healthier hair. Support healthy hair growth the natural way with proven, ultra high quality active ingredients that work with your body.

Give your hair everything it needs to support, thick healthy hair growth, but without risking the possible side-effects from chemicals.

The Scalp Elixir contains a powerful blend of plant-based extracts, all of which have been shown in studies to improve hair growth outcomes.

The Scalp Elixir is simple and easy to use. Simple apply 1 hour before bed time to areas of thinning or receding hair. Allow to dry for ten minutes and you're all done.

Our formula is non-greasy, easy drying and with a subtle, natural smell, that won't irritate your scalp.

Life's better with thick,
healthy hair.

A topical is more than just what's listed as the ingredients. The quality of the ingredients matters equally as much. There's no point in adding something if it's been grown, extracted or stored incorrectly.

When formulating the Scalp Elixir we go to great lengths to make sure all these factors are taken into account, so you don't have to worry about it. Made in the UK.

Why use the Scalp Elixir?


Synfolex™ is our proprietary blend of naturally derived extracts, designed to up-regulate the growth and support of hairs even under unfavourable conditions. We are the only product range in the world licensed to use Synfolex™.

Saw Palmetto

The Saw Palmetto extract that we use in our products is pharmaceutical grade, meaning it is pure and ultra-potent. This makes it a powerful addition to the Scalp Elixir.

Safflower Extract

Safflower became famous for its ability in clinical studies to promote stronger, thicker hair. What most people who try Safflower don't realise is the extract type and quality greatly affect efficacy. Hairguard uses the highest quality and most potent extract.

Eclipta Alba

Eclipta Alba has performed well in hair growth studies repeatedly. It's also very soothing and can help reduce inflammation, making a perfect addition dry scalps.


Caffeine has become a popular addition to anti-thinning shampoos, but the problem is that it doesn't stay in contact with the scalp long enough to have noticeable benefits. Since the Elixir stays in contact with your hair and scalp overnight, the Caffeine now has a better chance to help support blood flow to the hair follicle.


Taurine can help rejuvenate hair in multiple ways. It may help inhibit fibrosis (a process that reduces blood flow). It has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. Lastly, it can help to protect the hair follicles from stress-induced hair loss making it a powerful addition to the Elixir.

The plant-based way to thicker, stronger, healthier hair.

We've designed the Scalp Elixir as the ultimate plant-based topical formula for men and women with thinning hair.

With plant-based, ingredients that can help improve blood flow, reduce inflammation and provide nutrients and minerals.

It's time to stop worrying about harsh chemicals and start enjoying thicker hair.
