IV Hair Nourishment Drips

IV therapy is a type of wellness therapy that can help deliver essential nutrients and fluids directly into the bloodstream. This can be an excellent way to rehydrate the body and help cure various ailments. When Dr. John Myers developed the first IV vitamin drip in the 1970s, he had no idea that it would one day be used by millions of people for aesthetic and cosmetic purposes. Today, this course of treatment has come a long way, and is now one of the most popular and effective ways to improve your appearance and optimal health.

Patients report having thicker, longer, and healthier hair after getting this IV drip. It’s packed with amino acids and essential nutrients that revitalize and nourish your hair.

A little bit on amino acids and their role in hair stimulation therapy.

Lecithin – improves hair shyness and reduces dryness – How?

Lecithin supports and enhances the required amount of protein and is a key building block of the membranes inside and outside of every cell.

Lecithin helps to achieve healthy-looking, shiny hair, which is silky to the touch. Especially dry hair benefits from the presence of lecithin because it improves the structural qualities of hair. As it is one of the essential phospholipids  – it helps to keep hair properly moisturized and restore the natural protective coating of hair.

Lecithin counteracts the effects aging has on hair and supports hair regrowth and regeneration as well as replenishes and improves hair deep in the inner shaft. This results in healthy-looking, supple and shiny hair.

L-Cysteine  – improves strength and thickness of your hair  – How?

L-Cysteine is a non-essential amino acid, which helps to reverse hair loss as it transports two essential minerals [iron and zinc] that are vital nutrients for hair regrowth. It has an antioxidant role, encompasses mucolytic function, contributes to the regulation of the activity of the immune system, enhances the protection of the digestive system, reduces the risk of stroke, and helps strengthen the hair.

L-Cysteine forms disulphide bridges, which provides strength and rigidity to keratin. As keratin is one of the most abundant proteins in the skin and the hair, this amino acid via its role in keratin enhances the fibrous properties of hair, allowing hair to retain moisture.

Consequently, the use of blends fortified with L-Cysteine helps promote the repair of structural lesions and help slow down hair loss experienced by patients affected by certain disorders (e.g., diffuse alopecia.).

There is growing evidence showing that L-Cysteine, in combination with B-complex vitamins, could be a factor to help promote hair growth and an effective factor in the telogen effluvium stage.

Methionine: Improves hair growth and reduces grey hair  – How?

An essential sulfur-containing amino acid is a primary building block of protein synthesis and has a vital role in many functions within the body. However, it is not naturally created by the body and therefore must be consumed in the diet.

The key element of L-Methionine is sulfur, a profound factor for keratin manufacture of the hair shaft. Thus, it is not surprising that L-Methionine could help your hair become smooth, glossy, and shiny.

Also, research has found that L-Methionine may effectively inhibit tyrosinase, a factor causing greying hair.

Besides its benefits for the presence of your hair, this amino acid contains properties that could protect your hair from free radicals, which helps to improve hair growth and efficiently maintains hair structure.


Due to its significant role, maintaining a sufficient level of L-Methionine through the daily intake is of great importance. This amino acid can be found abundantly in meat, fish, and dairy products.
