This is the shampoo that 'grew back' Sharon Stone's hair after a stroke

With amino acids, high-grade vitamins and peptides, the Augustinus Bader formula aims to restore your shiny strands.

Thinning tresses, a few too many strands in the brush, clogged drains — hair loss happens to the best of us. But it's comforting to know that aging doesn't discriminate — even the ultra-glamorous aren't spared. Oscar-nominated, Emmy-winning and all-around alluring Hollywood icon Sharon Stone knows too well what it's like to need more than a little fluffing to give her locks some bounce. For that, she turns to The Shampoo from Augustinus Bader.

Lightweight and foamy, this shampoo hydrates your hair while moisturizing your scalp.

For Stone, the benefits of The Shampoo transcend aesthetics. In 2001, when she was 43, she suffered a stroke that took seven years to recover from, she said at a gala hosted by The Hollywood Reporter. And while hair loss is common at her current age (66), she was blindsided by it after the nine-day brain hemorrhage.

"I started using this Augustinus Bader shampoo and conditioner and after-shampoo leave-in conditioner," she said in an interview with Byrdie. "All the hair I had lost under here, on the sides from the stroke, grew back. And I have hair!"

There are many products to help combat hair loss, but this one stands out with the brand's TFC8 formula. That's a blend of amino acids, high-grade vitamins and peptides that the company researched for 30 years. It targets cells in the hair follicles to help with repair and regrowth and is designed to lock in moisture and support keratin production. It also works on your scalp to prevent dry, flaky skin. On top of all that, it's vegan and sulfate-free.

Nordstrom shoppers are big fans of The Shampoo too.

"Love this shampoo for my naturally gray hair. Had severe thinning due to medication and this is helping my hair make a comeback," wrote a happy user. "I use it in conjunction with the scalp treatment and conditioner. Thank you, Mr. Bader!"

Another shopper agreed, noting how it helped post-chemotherapy: "I have very thin hair after eight rounds of chemo. This shampoo gives so much body and shine. Worth every penny to make a cancer patient feel beautiful again."

"In addition to cleaner and softer feeling hair, I was experiencing hair loss, and it's slowed down since using the AB shampoo," raved another Augustinus Bader convert. "Great hair product and now going to venture into the rest of their skincare products!"

A final fan had this useful note: "I really like this shampoo. Its clean ingredients and no fragrance are appealing to me. Because of this, it doesn't lather easily, so if you like a good lathery scrub you need to double cleanse. Similar to the conditioner it doesn't weigh hair down after use."

Pair The Shampoo with Augustinus Bader's The Conditioner for even better results.
