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

Thinning tresses, a few too many strands in the trash and a clogged drain — hair loss happens to the best of us. But it's comforting to know that all the inconveniences of aging do not discriminate — not even against the ultra-glamorous. Golden Globe, Emmy award-winning and all-around alluring actress Sharon Stone knows too well what it's like to need a little 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. 

$49 at Amazon

Why is it a good deal?

The Shampoo from Augustinus Bader rarely goes on sale. It typically hovers around the regular price of $60, but we've seen the price go as high as $99 this year. At its current markdown to $49, you're definitely getting a bargain.

Why do I need this?

At 65, Stone's star is shining as brightly as ever — only now instead of acting, she's picked up painting. 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. While hair loss is common at her age now, it was something she was blindsided by 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 is a standout with the brand's TFC8® formula which is a blend of amino acids, high-grade vitamins and peptides that the company says it researched for 30 years. It targets cells in the hair follicles to help with repair and regrowth. It's designed to lock in moisture and supports keratin production to give you shiny, healthy hair. It also works on your scalp to prevent dry and flaky skin. It's also vegan and sulfate-free.
