Thinning Hair Solutions…

By on July 30, 2018 in Hair |

Thinning hair is a concern for women and men alike, but it’s important to understand the different types and causes in order to promote stronger, healthier hair. Reactional hair thinning often results from factors such as stress, dietary deficiencies, post-pregnancy hormonal changes or medications, while progressive hair thinning is usually genetic. We off proven botanically-based solutions – free of minoxidil or finasteride – for both types of hair thinning. Our hair is constantly renewing itself. A single hair emerges, grows, then falls out, as part of a hair cycle that repeats itself about 25 times during our lifetime. It occurs in three stages: 1. The Anagen Phase The anagen phase, or growth phase, lasts about two to three years in men and six to eight years in women. Under normal conditions, about 85% of our hairs are in the anagen phase. During this phase, the vascular network that supplies the hair root is particularly well-developed around the follicle. 2. The Catagen Phase The catagen phase, or regression phase, which is fairly brief (two to three weeks), is when the hair follicle becomes inactive. The hair matrix dies and although the hair does not grow any more, it remains rooted in the follicle. 3. The Telogen Phase The telogen phase is when the hair is in its rest phase. The hair is shed and replaced by another hair, whereby a new anagen phase begins. This period of renewal lasts approximately three months and explains why we normally lose around one hundred hairs every day. TWO TYPES OF HAIR LOSS CAUSES If you are experiencing sudden, temporary hair loss, which is known as reactional thinning hair, this René Furterer video is for you. Triggers may be stress or emotional shock, a restricted or poor diet, fatigue, childbirth, illness, medications, overprocessed hair, or scalp tension due to unprofessional styling. Usually becomes visible 2-3 months after a specific event. Hairs abruptly enter the catagen phase before completing the growth phase causing hair to shed. More prevalent in women and can occur on the entire head rather than being isolated to certain areas.
