Re-grow Your Natural Hair

Monday, 29 June 2009

The majority of hair loss prevention products on the market do very little to regrow hair. At best, they slow down the process of androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness), and in many cases they don't even do that. Fortunately, there's an all-natural method for you to prevent further hair loss and to regrow hair--it's called Provillus.

Provillus, an oral supplement, works to block DHT, a form of testosterone that is responsible for 95 percent of hair loss. It also works to stimulate the scalp and bring dead follicles back to life. You can use Provillus as a preventative tool, starting the program before hair loss becomes severe, or you can use it after DHT has already begun to take hold of your hair and scalp.

Our Money-Back GuaranteeResults for people who have used leading chemical-based hair loss products are inconsistent. While some people will notice somewhat of a minor change, others will watch as their hair continues to fall out at the same rate. Provillus, on the other hand, has enjoyed consistently positive results by utilizing proven natural substances like saw palmetto, vitamin B6, magnesium, and zinc to attack hair loss from all angles. Plus, because it's all-natural, you won't suffer the physical and sexual side effects that other hair regrowth products cause.

When you order Provillus from us, it comes with a money back guarantee. If you are not pleased with the results you get from our product, you have six months to return it for a full refund. We are confident, though, that when you use our supplement, you will stop losing and start regrowing your hair.

Camouflaging Hair Loss

Saturday, 27 June 2009

The two methods of non-surgical hair replacement today involve the use of hair systems and hair loss concealers. Various types of hair systems such as full wigs, hairpieces, toupees, hair extensions and weaves can look very authentic and have been used for ages to cover bald spots and typically with good rates of success. However, their typical weaknesses are high maintenance costs and, in many situations, the discomfort of wearing them. Hair loss concealers on the other hand have been around for a much shorter period of time and have often been looked down upon for being incapable of withstanding adverse external conditions and for appearing unnatural. This no longer appears to be true as many of them have dramatically improved recently, both in terms of their authentic appearance and their resistance.

There three basic types of hair loss concealers include those that simply paint your scalp to match your hair colour, then there are hair thickeners that thicken your hair by coating and penetrating the hair and trapping moisture and volume-building proteins inside the hair shaft and, lastly, there are concealers that apply microfibers that cling to your hair like branches to the trunk of a tree, increasing the hair density. Some products combine two of the aforementioned approaches and paint your scalp and thicken your hair at the same time. All of these products come in various application forms, such as a powder, cream or a spray. Hair loss concealers do not contain any substance that would combat hair loss but some of them allow you to continue with a topical hair loss treatment such as minoxidil.

Microfibre-based hair loss concealers can be typically applied in as little as 30 seconds versus a minimum of five minutes needed for hair thickeners. However, microfibres are less water-resistant and it is quite difficult to apply them precisely and, therefore, they are not too good for creating an authentic-looking frontal hairline. Their greatest advantage is that they are unrecognisable in your hair, even with a very close inspection. Hair thickeners, mainly those that also colour your scalp, are extremely water-resistant and excellent for frontal hairlines but they take longer to apply. They cover your scalp with a layer of colouring substance, which makes it difficult to effectively apply any topical hair loss treatment. Their greatest weakness in comparison to microfibres is that in direct sunlight it can become visible to the sharp eye that the scalp has been painted.

The common weakness of all chemical substances used for concealing hair loss seems to be the limited choice of available shades. Some hair loss sufferers use a combination of two products simultaneously to overcome the weaknesses of individual products and to achieve the most authentic looking shade and appearance. Most often a combination of a hair thickener and a microfibrous concealer is used. The results of such combinations are typically excellent. If you wish to try any such combinations, make sure that you apply the scalp-painting, hair loss thickener first and then use the microfibres to mask the remaining imperfections. There are many products in all three categories of hair loss concealers out there and you may want to test several of them in order to identify those that best match you hair colour and style of application.

Women's Hair Loss: Finally The Solution To Thinning Hair!

Thursday, 25 June 2009

An estimated 40% of women experience noticeable hair loss by the age 40. Women rarely lose their hair due to genetic predisposition. However hair loss in women is reaching new high levels. Women's hair loss can start as early as the late teens to early twenties. Most commonly, women experience an overall thinning of hair rather than a receding hair line like men do. It is normal to lose 50 to 150 hairs in a day; however hair loss in women usually occurs when these hairs start to be replaced by shorter, thinner hairs. This can be hard to notice at first, but over time it can become very apparent. Thinning hair loss in women may be caused by many problems:

Hormonal imbalance and other cyclical shifts.

Hair loss related to pregnancy postmenopausal trauma.

Effects of medications including birth control pills.

Nervous conditions including tension and stress.

Medical treatments such as chemo therapy and thyroid conditions.

Harsh chemicals such as commercial shampoos, perms, hair color, and bleach

Iron, vitamin and mineral imbalance.

Severely poor diet including dehydration.

Poor circulation can cut off the nutrients that blood flow delivers to the scalp.

Good News For Hair Loss Suffers:

Women have a higher success rate than men, because they have less testosterone and fewer, more evenly dispersed receptor sites in the follicles. In as little as 3 months you can start to notice fuller, thicker hair and even new hair growth.

* Regenerx penetrates the hair shaft, restoring the follicle, resulting in thicker hair.

* Regenerx improves circulation by increasing blow flow to the scalp.

* Regenerx also acts as a thickening agent that naturally conditions and will not alter or damage color treated hair.

* Regenerx is all natural safe alternative to Rogaine however without the side effects associated with minoxidil which can include scalp irritation, itchiness and dryness. Also, unlike minoxidil, Regenerx does not contain any alcohol or propylene glycol (PPG) which can really irritate the scalp and alter or damage color treated hair.

Regenerx- Finally...the solution for thinning hair.

Regenerx was developed from clinical research work conducted at Department of Dermatology, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, in Scotland.

Treatment with this formulation in the patients suffering from mild to severe hair loss showed significant improvement compared with the control group. Researchers have concluded that pharmacologically active stimulants for hair growth are present in this formulation of specific essential oils and that these oils can be therapeutic in patients with alopecia and thinning hair. The researchers also point out that the formulation caused no side effects, while steroids and other common agents can cause adverse side effects as described above.

Regenerx contains a unique blend of natural oils like cedarwood, rosemary, and lavender which help stimulate hair growth by increasing blood flow to the scalp. More blood flow allows more of the important nutrients and vitamins to reach the scalp. Increased blood circulation can help awaken previously dormant follicles and promote new hair growth.

Regenerx formulation also includes jojoba, grapeseed, thyme, and rosemary oils to help condition and revitalize the scalp. These ingredients contain antioxidants which neutralize free-radicals that can damage cells of the scalp. Natural oils like these moisturize and soften dry, damaged scalp to help restore hair follicles and promote healthy hair growth. Jojoba and grapeseed oils are also very effective carrier oils. Carrier oils promote the absorption of other oils into the skin to further increase their effectiveness.

Hair follicles can sometimes become clogged with build-ups of sebum that inhibit hair growth. It's important to clean out this build-up to make way for new hair growth. Lavender, thyme, and jojoba are natural oils that can clear out sebum to make way for new hair growth. In some cases bacteria can inhibit hair growth. These oils also have antiseptic properties that can destroy harmful bacteria and soothe the scalp to create a better environment for hair growth.

Women experiencing hormonal changes often find that their hair starts to thin and becomes brittle. Years of harsh treatment combined with blow-drying and exposure to the sun may irreparably damage hair and decrease volume. Regenerx is a natural way to bring back fuller hair by stimulating hair growth as well as volumizing existing hair using natural essential oils. Whether you are experiencing advanced women's hair loss, noticing a slight thinning of your hair, or want to prevent hair loss altogether. Regenerx provides a unique and effective treatment for women's hair loss that can have you seeing noticeable results just in 3 months or less. You don't have to suffer from the effects of hair loss. Finally there is a effective all natural solution for thinning hair.

Safe Hair Loss Treatment: Herbal Hair Remedies

Wednesday, 24 June 2009

Hair loss is a wide spread phenomenon that often makes you feel very bad about yourself. Nothing could enhance your looks as better as healthy hair. For most of the people hair loss happens to be a miserable experience and they take a long time to accustom themselves with this new condition. But I would suggest all folks who feel traumatized because of their partial or complete hair loss to better search for remedies instead of feeling bad about it for the whole of their life.

There is a wide range of remedial options which claim to offer permanent cure to hair loss. Herbal remedies are the best treatment options available though. There are two advantages with herbal hair loss treatment, first it is cost effective and secondly it doesn't give way to side effects that you may experience with other hair loss treatments. Herbal hair loss remedies are of two types, either it could be in form of herbs meant to be ingested or there could herbs to be massaged or applied on scalp.

In this article I would restrict myself to relate only external use herbs for hair. There is a good number of external use herbs which are applied on the scalp but only a few of them have the proven record of bringing back hair on scalp.

Following are some of the easily available herbs:

1.Carthamus Tinctorius: It is popularly known as Safflower oil. This oil happens to be very useful in making hair follicles work again. It tends to increase blood circulation towards follicles making follicles enriched with essential elements to combat any disruption in its functioning. It could be applied twice on scalp in a day. A consistent and long term use would give positive results.

2.Onion: This essential food ingredient happens to be a unanimous choice as herbal paste to be applied on scalp for improving hair regeneration. Onion proves effective because of its sulfur content. Before taking bath you can apply onion on your scalp. The practice could be continued for months to get the desired effect.

3.Red Henna: It is very common herb in use to combat hair loss. This herb is better suggested to be used twice a week. If you constantly keep applying red henna on your scalp you would prevent hair fall and you might be able to activate follicles for hair regeneration.

4.Aloe Vera: It is also common use herb for various purposes and its efficacy for treating hair loss is due to presence of nitric oxide and certain enzymes that help in hair nourishment and growth.

5.Red Pepper: It also serves the same purpose. But it shouldn't be excessively used on hairs.

These are some of the herbs that have proved to be effective as hair loss remedy. You can use any of them to overcome hair loss but consistency and patience is a prerequisite with these herbal external use medications.

Natural Hair Loss Treatment - The Lost Art Of Hair Repair

Sunday, 21 June 2009

While there are certainly a number of medical treatments that offer great results, experts say that natural hair loss treatment can yield some of the best benefits for anyone concerned about the health of their hair. Most people choose to treat their hair loss with medications or surgery, such as Minoxidil or hair transplantation. However many people fail to realize that medication and surgery are costly and may carry some harmful side effects and risks. The safest and most cost efficient form of hair loss therapy is natural hair loss treatment, which includes healthy dieting, herbal remedies, exercise and proper hair care techniques. Natural hair loss treatment has become the “Lost Art” of hair repair and is often neglected as a form of treatment among the very pricey alternatives.

A fundamental principal in natural hair loss treatment is that the same foods that are good for your health, are good for your hair. Although hair loss can be caused by many other variables, lack of proper nutrition will cause hair loss in most people. Foods that are high in protein, low in carbohydrates, and have reduced fat content can help in maintaining healthier hair and preventing hair loss. For example, essential fatty acids, found in spinach, walnuts, soy, tuna, sardines, sunflower seeds and canola oil, are important dietary essentials useful in keeping hair healthy. The omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids contain anti-inflammatory properties that are useful in maintaining healthy hair. Insufficient levels of these essential fatty acids could lead to quicker hair loss.

A deficiency in vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 can also lead to excessive hair loss. Foods containing B vitamins, like liver, chicken, fish and soybean are important to healthy hair growth and natural hair loss treatment. Both vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 are found in protein rich foods, which are needed to maintain natural hair growth. B vitamins are very essential to one’s diet in order to prevent excessive hair loss. Certain vitamins and nutritional supplements are often necessary to restore protein levels which in turn, are useful in preventing hair loss. Increasing vitamin B intake in one’s diet is a successful way to prevent or treat your hair loss naturally.

Alongside the concept of healthy eating of vitamins, minerals and nutrients are also the use of herbal remedies that are effective in preventing hair loss as a natural hair loss treatment. Among the herbs making medical headlines is Saw Palmetto. Although most studies of Saw Palmetto have been for the treatment of prostatic disease, more recent studies have been conducted on its effectiveness in treating hair loss. The herb has been found to work in fighting benign prostatic disease by lowering levels of DHT, which is a known cause of androgenic alopecia, the medical term for male or female pattern hair loss. While there are no clinical trials supporting this herb’s usefulness as a natural hair loss treatment, there is some reliable research proving that it can slow down androgen activity within the hair follicle.

Nettles, usually taken in the form of Nettle Root Extract, has shown itself to be effective in preventing hair loss as well. Nettles are rich in vitamins A and C, that are beneficial in inhibiting DHT production and promoting hair growth as a natural hair loss treatment. Other traditional herbs that are useful as natural hair loss treatments are green tea, licorice extract, horsetail, ginger, psoralea seeds, apple cider vinegar, rosemary and sage tea.

Research is constantly discovering modern forms of natural hair loss treatments. The list of treatments summarized in this article are only a fraction of the available natural therapies for hair loss. Everyone has some hair loss from day to day. In fact, it is normal to lose up to 100 strands of hair a day. However, some people lose a lot more hair than expected, due to genetic reasons, disease, medications, stress, injury, or an unhealthy diet. Regardless of the cause of hair loss, natural hair loss treatment, involving changes in diet and lifestyle, is the safest form of preventive hair treatment around. Catching your hair loss in its early stages and treating it naturally is among the best lines of defense in preventing excessive hair loss and the safest method for treating it.

Is Falsehood The Word for Natural Hair Are Products?

Thursday, 18 June 2009

It really is hard to find the right hair care products. This is because there are a huge variety of hair types that range from straight, curly, wavy, locked hair, natural hair and also hair that is treated by color. You may also lose your patience looking for the right sort of hair care products for your type of hair. Mostly you only find that these natural hair care products are only for those with dry hair. However you need to look for these natural hair care products slowly to find the right ones for you.

For hair that is black use a shampoo that has good moisture content and then go in for a conditioner that can help replenish the nutrients. Your hair will look black when the conditioner that you use is revitalizing. Condition your hair well to make your hair manageable and also free from tangles. Sleek look can be obtained by you by just making use of the hair serum that is nourishing. Yet another option is to renew your scalp. For fine hair do use nourishing shine products.

Scalp renewal is the word for African hair that is curly. For hair that needs to be taken care of everyday use moisturizer as well as a shampoo that is nourishing. When you use this make sure that you are using a conditioner that replenishes the nutrients. Holding the curls in the right place may be very simple if you so use the natural sprays. Along with the revitalizer use a leave in conditioner when you have to be outdoors. Curls that are bouncy have to be locked and twisted.

American hair is usually sleek and straight. The daily care products including the moisture rich nourishing shampoo and a conditioner for nutrient replenishing remains the same for this type of hair also. If air drying is followed, a wrapping and rolling natural hair care product can be used. If you prefer flat ironing your hair then you can go for spray gels. A hair nourishing serum should be used to keep the nutrients locked in every strand of hair. A natural hair nourishing cream can be used for fine textured hair.

If you are keen on growing natural hair then a scalp renew is the first step. The growth can be enhanced by a good natural nourishing hair serum and nourishing creams. Daily care can be completed by using a moisture rich shampoo and a good conditioner with moisture replenishing features.

Men can complete their hair care by using a good moisture rich shampoo and conditioner. A condition and sculpt can also be used. Hair growth can be enhanced by hair nourishing natural creams.

Conditioners that are left in can help reduce frizzy ness. Use conditioner after shampooing. Use nourishing and shiny products to soften the strands. Reducing frizz will give you silky and smooth hair. Serums and nourishing creams for the hair are the secret to it.

For colored hair more care needs to be taken. Nourishing creams that are naturally got are used. Shining products help in keeping the color longer and also in keeping them brighter.

The Natural Prevention Of Hair Loss: Vitamin Terms Hair Replacement

When an individual begins to experience the thinning of hair or balding, for whatever, reason, their first reaction is generally denial. That is then followed by panic when they cannot deny hair loss is occurring any more. However, rather than do something to try and prevent or delay it immediately, they leave it until the only option is the surgical procedure of hair transplants. Transplants should indeed be a last resort so catching hair loss early gives you an advantage. Alternative therapies, such as vitamins terms hair replacement, can be sought and tried.

Vitamin hair replacement therapies can be used with varying degrees of success. It all depends on whether your body fights the properties they bring and how far your hair loss is genetic. Genetic hair loss can be delayed but will ultimately happen thus vitamin hair replacement can only really be used as a temporary halting treatment. However, in other cases, such as regenerating growth following radiation treatment, it has met with unparalleled success.

Many vitamin hair replacement supplements contain certain ingredients that are clinically proven to target and reduce hair loss. Saw palmetto is one of the main ingredients as this actively targets DHT. DHT, or dihydrotestosterone, is produced in the hair follicles but a build up can actually kill them off. Saw palmetto is one ingredient that actually works to block its production, thus slowing down hair loss. Many vitamin hair replacement treatments use it as their base for this reason, and because it helps to repair follicles that have already been damaged or degraded as a result of DHT production.

Vitamin terms hair replacement treatments are designed to be long-term rather than giving immediate results. They are also not billed as solutions because hair loss may still occur regardless of their use. However, vitamin hair replacement products may sufficiently slow it down to the point where you never have to consider hair transplants. They actually come in a variety of forms to that you can choose the one that best suits you. Oral supplements and shampoos/hair treatments are both widely available. Treatments are also sold in complete packs that offer a combination of the two. These particular vitamin hair replacement treatments are designed to provide the optimum environment for hair rejuvenation and growth as well as treating it internally and externally to prevent hair loss.

Vitamin intake in your diet can also help to stem hair loss. Ensuring that you get the correct dose of vitamins daily can aid hair replacement and give your body a fighting chance in stemming hair loss. This is a more inexpensive method of vitamin hair replacement treatments and thus you may want to try this first.

Hair transplanting can be painful and fail to yield satisfactory results, but at least if you have tried everything else first then you will be in a position to decide whether it is the best choice for you. Vitamin terms hair replacement can indeed help in the meantime and perhaps even prevent the need for transplants ever being realized. You have nothing to lose by trying it.

What’s In Your Shampoo? Hair Health, And Hair Loss Prevention Using Natural Products

Wednesday, 17 June 2009

We do our shopping and purchase our hair care products and assume we are doing the right things for hair health. Through promotion and marketing we are led to believe that some of the products available today are things we just can’t do without. But is that really true?

To find the answer you must first look at the structure of hair. Below the skin is the hair follicle, the sebaceous gland and blood vessels. The hair itself is made up of protein. When you brush your hair it causes the sebaceous gland to produce sebum. This oily substance coats and protects the hair from the elements. It also stimulates the blood vessels to provide the nourishment your hair needs. Brushing your hair and or massaging the scalp are beneficial to hair health.

With commercial products, most shampoos and conditioners contain harsh chemicals and synthetic products. In shampoos, that means it can over clean your hair and strip it of its precious oils. Now you need to condition it to replace the oils. It can harm the scalp and hair follicles. It is the same with laundry detergents. They are loaded with fillers and less actual soap so that they can sell you more detergent. It’s a money making strategy that has worked so they will continue to do so.

Now if you are like most people, you’ve read the labels but don’t have a clue as to what the ingredients really are and what their function is. Here it is in layman’s terms:

1) Distereate and propylene glycol or glycol are petroleum based (crude oil). They are very cheap which is why they are widely used in the cosmetic industry.

2) Isopropyl alcohol is another very cheap solvent.

3) Propylparaben or Methylparen are preservatives that are synthetic. The human body typically does not understand synthetic, it understands organic.

4) Cetearyl alcohol is an emulsifier and it can be natural or synthetic. Synthetic is often used because it’s cheaper and easier to produce.

These petrochemicals are absorbed through the skin, then down through the organs and tissues. Many believe that long term exposure to these toxins can cause permanent damage anywhere in the body, and yet, governments have sided with big industry to not require them to disclose what these products contain or what they really are. Instead we have big fancy names you can hardly pronounce let alone understand.

The solution? It’s not as hard as you think. It’s as close as you health food store or even your own fridge. Here are some tips:

1) Buy a natural liquid soap from the health food store. Also purchase some essential oils such as lavender (for all hair types), rosemary, clary sage, cedar wood, birch and peppermint (for hair loss) bergamot, rosewood, eucalyptus etc. Also purchase natural oils such as olive, jojoba, or avocado. Here’s what to do; in a clean spray bottle, pour in about ½ a cup of distilled or spring water. Add 1 cup of liquid soap. Then take 2 tsp of your vegetable oil and add 10 to 20 drops of your chosen essential oils. It can be just one or several combined oils. Shake gently. There you have it. Simple as that! (Essential oils always need to be in a vegetable oil base because of its concentration). You should not need a cream rinse after that because oils will be replaced.

2) If you need deep conditioning, try saturating your hair in mayonnaise or warmed olive oil. Wrap tightly and cover with a shower cap and let rest on the hair for approximately 20 minutes, then rinse out. You can also take 2 egg yolks and whisk them until frothy, then add some warm water. Pour over hair and leave on for 2 minutes then rinse well.

3) It’s a good idea to do a final rinse on your hair with something acidic such as cider vinegar, lemon juice, beer or even milk. Add any of these ingredients with some water to rinse your hair with to restore the alkaline/acid balance of your hair and scalp, and take off any residue you may have left on your hair.

There are many good natural recipes for healthy hair but these are a few things to get you started in the right direction. Experiment with different essential and vegetable oils to find what you like best. Natural, your body understands, so here’s to a good hair day!

Top 10 Reasons To Do Laser Hair Treatment

Monday, 15 June 2009

You know the drill. You get up, take a shower, and watch your hair swirl in the drain. You check your hair out in the mirror and find a little less than you had the day before. Your hairline is receding and you’ve tried the shampoos and the Rogaine with minimal success. You’ve done the hair system thing, but that’s just not you. So what’s a person to do? Live with hair loss? Maybe not.

Here are top ten reasons to try a new laser hair treatment program.

1. The use of low level lasers in the treatment of hair loss is one of the latest technological breakthroughs in hair restoration therapy. This low level laser hair treatment has been used with great success in Europe for the past ten years, but is only recently coming into use here in the states. Uses of hand-held laser combs have been approved by the FDA for home use.

2. Low light lasers use cool red light to stimulate blood flow to the scalp. There are many factors involved in male and female pattern hair loss - genetics, hormones, age. When hair follicles begin to fail because of an overabundance of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) in the body (a hormone that comes with aging) and lack of blood flow to that area of the scalp, hair follicles shrink and eventually miniaturize and fail to thrive. Finally, hair follicles disappear altogether. Once follicles die, nothing can be done to help them. That’s why it’s important to start laser hair treatment when your hair is in the thinning stage, before it’s gone altogether. Cool laser hair treatment stimulates this blood flow and restores vitality to the root, encouraging regrowth.

3. Laser hair treatment can be used in conjunction with your current mode of hair loss treatment. If you’ve taking Rogaine or Propecia and seeing minimal results, laser hair treatment can boost the effectiveness of medications. By stimulating regrowth of hair follicles with the use of red, low light lasers, it helps the medications work more effectively. In clinical studies, 45% of patients saw noticeable results in 6 - 8 weeks, and within 4 - 6 months, another 45% saw definite improvement in the quality of the hair that was regrowing and in the thickness of their hair.

4. Laser hair treatment is pain-free and has virtually no side effects. For those fearful or reluctant to use prescription medication treatments such as Rogaine or Propecia, a laser hair treatment program offers a safe, effective and risk-free way to treat hair loss. Lasers stimulate blood flow to the scalp, and energized the hair follicles, but do not damage skin.

5. Laser hair treatment will not bust your budget. Compared to other hair loss treatments, laser hair treatments are affordable; the cost is much cheaper than alternatives like surgical hair restoration, or a high-end hair system that will require maintenance.

6. Laser hair treatment vs. hair systems – Hair systems require some kind of glue or adhesive to stay on. There is always the risk that an edge will come up or that even the best hair system will be detectable. With laser hair treatment, you’re only dealing with your own natural hair. No glue, no hoping people don’t notice you’re wearing a hair system.

7. No surgery – There is no surgery involved with laser hair treatment, and more importantly, no anesthesia required. Hair restoration surgery (or follicular hair transplantation surgery) is very expensive and requires 10 days of downtime following surgery. Laser hair treatments can be done on your lunch break or in front of the TV at night and require no down time. And there is no risk of infection involved as there is with any surgery.

8. Laser Hair Treatments are natural – Many people simply don’t believe in taking medication or in doing surgery to restore hair. They want a more natural approach. Nothing is more natural than using light to regrow your hair. The kind of red light used in laser hair treatments is not the kind that will give you sunburn or encourage skin problems. On the contrary, it can even help flaky, itchy scalps to heal and naturally stimulate the health and vitality of the scalp and hair.

9. No need to be self-conscious by visiting a hair replacement clinic.

Female Hair Loss Treatment- Essential Points to Check

Sunday, 14 June 2009

You may or you may not have a good female hair loss treatment solution. The problem is finding out if the product you are using for your hair condition is not just taking advantage of you. The key is to evaluate a product properly before using it on yourself. Fortunately, there are a couple of guiding points you can use to determine if a product is any good.


Find out how well a product sits with consumers and users. You can easily do this by searching for and reading reviews of products. Be careful though, not every product review online is independent or real. Some are written by ghost writers or affiliates who may not have tried using the products themselves. There are however, a couple of independent review sites that post actual consumer feedback. Reading a couple of bad reviews along with some good ones will give you a more balanced idea of a product’s merits.

Consumers may also post reviews about more than just the product qualities. Some may also provide feedback on fake money back guarantees advertised by manufacturers. The mere fact that a product’s “no questions asked money back guarantee” is not easy to obtain may say a lot about a product and its manufacturers.

Website Data

Before considering a female hair loss treatment product, you should have at least researched about hair loss in general. This will arm you with the necessary information to check if a product page is in line with the most recent medical research about female pattern balding.

Read every page of a product site. Find out what ingredients a product carries, how it says it can solve your problem and what it says about hair fall in women. If some points do not tally with your sound research, you should become at least a little wary.

Customer Service

Quality customer service is one other clue that a product is what it says it is. Manufacturers who make rip-offs sometimes do not maintain a real customer service team. Try using the contact information provided to see if you are able to connect with real people. You can even ask a few questions to check if the person on the other end knows diddlysquat about the product in question.

A good female hair loss treatment is not always easy to come by. With a little vigilance and smart evaluation though, you may be able to find some real product gems in all the muck.

Hair Loss Basics You Need to Know If You Want to Stop Hair Loss.

First let me explain hair growth.

Hair actually is formed at the base of a hair follicle. A follicle is like a pouch that is located below the skin. What we usually call hair is actually the hair shaft, which is hardened tissue that grows from a follicle.

As you know our head contains thousands of hair follicles. Did you know that not all of them are not active at the same time? It's true. Studies proved that not more than 80% of our follicles are producing hair growth at any one time. The remaining 20% of the follicles are asleep or dormant.

When our inactive or dormant hair follicles start working again, they push out the old hair while producing a new one. Our hair grows from the follicle at an average rate of one-half inch every month. The hair growth continues for a period varying between four and seven years, after which the hair begins a 'resting' phase. After this resting phase, it is time for the hair to fall out. As a hair falls out, a new hair grows in its place after a gap of three weeks to three months. There are chances of us losing 50 to 100 hairs in any day. Some of us lose even more than that, not to regrow hair back again. This is why you need to have help starting back up the hair follicle engine.

Depending on age, weight, metabolism, hormones, ethnicity, medications, and Genes hair will grow differently, which is why some hair loss solutions work for some people and not others.

There are 3 distinct phases of hair growth: Anagen, Catagen and Telogen.

1. The anagen phase is also called the active growth phase.

This phase continues for several years. At any given time, the major portion (85%) of our body hair is found to be in this phase.

During this Anagen phase, the hair has an abundance of melanin (Pigment).

2. The Catagen or the regressive phase lasts for a period of nearly two weeks, during which the hair stops growing but has not yet shed. It has been observed that about 3 - 4% of our body hair is in this phase at any given time.

3. The telogen phase or the resting phase continues for 5 - 6 weeks, at the end of which the hair falls out and a new hair begins to take shape. Nearly 10-13% of our body hair is in this phase at any given time. There is an extensive loss of hair when more hair enters and stay in this phase. Research has established that the shock caused to the human system by stress and sickness can result in a larger percentage of hair staying in the resting phase, leading to reduced active hair regrowth along with an accelerated period of loss of hair.

OK, now how do we get our hair to wake up, fall out and grow back stronger?

We already mentioned above the main contributors to hair loss which were, age, weight, metabolism, hormones, ethnicity, medications, and Genes. Other factors that can cause hair loss include, childbirth, birth control pills, disease or illness, hair treatments because chemicals are used, hair styling like braiding, weaving and some doctors will tell you that a poor diet can effect hair loss.

Some of these factors we cannot control but others we can control. All studies indicate that the main contributor that we can control is DHT (DiHydrotestosterone).

DiHydrotestosterone, (DHT) is an active metabolite of the testosterone hormone that is formed in the adrenal gland, hair follicles, prostate glands and testes. DHT belongs to the class of compound known as androgen's, which is commonly known as the testoids or androgenic hormone to doctors but for us its' a type of steroid hormone. Males produce the DHT very early in life. This helps in the formation of the male specific characteristic such as development of the body hair, development of the facial hair, thickness of the voice and etc. DHT Blockers work to prevent the effects of this hormone after the puberty phase is completed, and the abundance of this compound is no longer needed in men.

DHT in the scalp is the main contributor of hair loss. DHT is created by testosterone which is why hair loss mainly affects males. When testosterone is naturally converted to DHT, the result is hair loss. Although everyone has DHT some people lose hair while others don't.

Hormonal changes are the #1 factor in hair loss of both men and women. This is mainly because of the hair follicles having a greater number of Androgen's receptors (regulators of gene expressions) for the DHT to attach to.

In simple terms the hair follicles need to block DHT build up and this will keep the hair on your head where it belongs.

Understanding the role of the DHT both in the male and the female pattern baldness, the researchers have discovered some unique way to prevent this hormone to act on the receptors in the scalp. Products that prevent those hormones are often called DHT Blockers.

Research has established that DHT is 30 times more potent as compared to the testosterone hormone. This is due to the fact that it has an increased affinity for the androgen receptor. However, there are many topical DHT blockers and inhibitors that are easily available in the open market under different brand names - being manufactured and marketed by different companies. Inhairit, Advica, Procerin, ProFillica and Provillus are some of the DHT inhibitors.

Saw Palmetto is one of the most potent and effective herbal or natural DHT blocker, which is far cheaper than most of the other DHT inhibitors in the market, but may not be as effective for some people as the products listed above. Blocking DHT is effective in slowing the effects of the hormone on the follicle, slowing hair loss. Some hair loss shampoo formulas use Saw Palmetto in their ingredients as a topical inhibitor for DHT.

It is believed that DHT also participates in the development of acne. Women with high level of the DHT will develop some male secondary sex properties such as hair growth just above their upper lips, or side burn whiskers, more developed muscles and thick voice. There are specific DHT Blocker available for women. Although the exact reasons have yet to be discovered it has been established by the researchers that the over production of DHT leaves the subjects exposed to the risks of prostate cancer and benign enlargement of the prostate.

Hair Loss – Onion Treatment For Hair Loss

Saturday, 6 June 2009

Onion is a popular folk remedy for hair loss. It is a tried and tested product, having been used for centuries not only for its potent hair strengthening properties, but also for other medicinal purposes. In fact, physicians in the Middle Ages prescribed onions to counteract snake bites, earaches, headaches, and hair loss.

High Sulfur Content of Onion

Onion is useful against hair loss because of its high sulfur content. Sulfur is known as the “healing mineral” since it has the ability to stimulate blood circulation and reduce skin inflammation. It is also called the “beauty mineral” because it is vital in the development of collagen, which is the major protein in our skin that gives it durability and smoothness. It also keeps our hair and nails in top condition. These properties of sulfur thus mean that the right amount of sulfur levels in our body can aid in reducing hair loss and encouraging hair regrowth.

To spot sulfur deficiency, watch out for dry skin, weak nails, and brittle hair. Other signs may include allergies, unusual fatigue, headaches, diabetes, and sore muscles and joints. If we do not maintain a proper diet, then chances are our body is not getting enough sulfur that it needs. As a matter of fact, scientists believe that chemical pesticides and fertilizers exhaust the soil of sulfur and this affects the sulfur content of plants being grown in that soil. Moreover, processed foods have been found to contain smaller amounts of sulfur because the mineral has been destroyed in the process. Sulfur cannot be manufactured by the human body, so it must be gotten through other ways, such as eating sulfur-rich foods and taking supplements.

Apply Onion Directly on Scalp

For hair loss sufferers, the easiest and cheapest way to benefit from the hair strengthening qualities of sulfur is through the application of onion extract directly on the scalp. A study published in June 2002 in the Journal of Dermatology talks about the efficacy of topical onion extract against alopecia areata, better known as hair loss. As much as 73% of the persons who used onion juice experienced some form of hair regrowth. The variations of treatments that were used in the experiment are the following:

(1)Chop a medium-sized onion into small pieces and add it to one cup of rum. Let it sit for 24 hours. Strain the mixture using a sieve and massage the remaining liquid solution onto your scalp.

(2)Mix half a cup of chopped onions and half a cup of dried stinging nettle. Add enough vodka to cover the onions and nettle. Let the mixture sit for a few days. Strain the mixture using a sieve and apply the liquid to your scalp.

(3)Mix a quarter cup of onion juice with a tablespoon of raw honey. Massage this mixture onto your scalp daily.

Other Onion Treatments

Other onion treatments recommended by alternative medicine experts include rubbing a slice of onion directly against the scalp before applying honey over it. This should be done twice a day. Another example of a remedy is in the form of a hair rinse. Put 2 ½ cups of brown onion skins in a quart of boiled water and let it sit for 50 minutes. Wash and shampoo your hair as usual, then dry it with a towel. Rinse it several times with the onion skin mixture before washing it off with water.

Hair Loss And Current Surgical Hair Replacement

Friday, 5 June 2009

Hair loss is caused by a variety of reasons. It could be due to some medical conditions, treatment like chemotherapy, scalp disease like psoriasis and a decline in the production of the estrogen hormone, which is usually seen in women after menopause. Whatever the cause may be, thinning hair almost always calls for some concern especially for women who find balding unacceptable in this society where hair is regarded as a woman’s crowning glory and often a basis for beauty.

One radical approach to this problem is surgical hair replacement. This form of treatment is more successful in men because of the pattern of their hair loss; however, such treatment presents less positive results for women because of their rather more diffuse pattern of hair loss. Surgical hair replacement is performed by moving small patches of scalp with healthy follicles to balding areas.

Prior to recent advances, the hair transplantation surgery was not able to give better cosmetic results, which was responsible for it to be unacceptable among the majority of people. The patients were left with unattractive scars, which was the reason for it to be cosmetically inferior. The problem was because the transplantation was done through the use of a 4 mm punch; thus the hair in the middle of these huge grafts showed the tendency to discontinue growing because of the deficiency of oxygen.

Because of these “unattractive results” surgeons are now using smaller kind of grafts that are gathered from the tissue, which are eliminated in strips from the donor and are situated at the back of the scalp. The process of harvesting these donor strips is performed by surgical scalpels rather than using a punch. Sometime in the 1990s, surgeons totally dumped the punch in favor of the knife.This has proven to give successful result in the surgery and more hair loss sufferers are considering the surgical hair replacement.

Coloring Your Hair – So Many Colors To Choose From

Wednesday, 3 June 2009

If you’re tired of your same old look and are looking for a makeover the quickest and most dramatic way to change your look is by coloring your hair. But with so many colors to choose from what color do you pick?

Before you even begin to pick a color you need to understand a little bit about the different types of dyes. Permanent hair color uses peroxide to lift your hair color and open the hair cuticle so that the new tint can penetrate and form the color. The higher the level of peroxide is the quicker the color will take and the lighter the results will be.

But not all of us want to make a permanent change to our hair color and that’s why there are semi permanent colors to choose from. These colors don’t lift any of your natural color. They have a small amount of peroxide so the cuticle is opened up slightly for the color to adhere slightly so the color slowly fades away leaving nor regrowth. Color will usually last about 20 washes.

Now that you understand the two different types of hair dye you need to decide what color you want to be. First understand that if you want to actually change your hair color you’ll need to use a permanent hair color. Semi permanents only add color over top so you won’t be able to go from say brunette to a blonde with a semi but you could get some great red highlights.

When choosing your new color if you aren’t sure then be sure to get some professional advise. Hair style and skin tone play an important role in how a color will look. Your new hair needs to compliment your skin tone so if you are fair skinned stay away from dark colors or black which will wash your complexion out. And dark toned skin doesn’t look good with one shade of blonde but mix up several shades and add some of your natural dark hair color into the mix and it’s “hot!”

If you’ve always wanted to be a blonde and you’ve decided now is the time to do it then go for it. If you haven’t played with hair dyes in the past then a home dye kit with a bleaching component in it may work for you. However if you have used dyes in the past you “must” get your hair done professionally.

The reason is that the old color has to be lifted out and this is a long process but it must also be done with caution so as not to make the hair brittle. You must also be able to strip the hair evenly and then reapply your new blonde color over it. Your stylist is trained to do this and will tell you if your hair is a candidate for it.

If you try this at home here’s what you can expect. Orange hair – and we aren’t talking cool punk rock orange we are talking carrot which may even be combined with some white patches on new growth hair at the roots. Hum that’s attractive. Top that with harsh bleaching compounds and inexperience and you could also land up with hair that is breaking off at the root. All that damage to your hair and the only way to fix it will be to dye it back to brown. So I repeat if you are dark haired, have red in your hair, or have previously dyed your hair leave going blonde to the pros.

Red is a very sexy color and it screams for attention. Red adheres well to the hair shaft so it’s fairly easy for most people to accomplish. Unfortunately red also fades fast so you may have to repeat more often than other colors. If you are blonde you will have to darken your hair a few shades to get a naturally rich brunette red shade otherwise you’ll look like a red chili pepper.

Brown shades are safe choices for almost anyone and there is a variety of shaded to choose from. And dark pigments add volume making your hair shiny and healthy looking.

Black is the easiest color to apply and there is really no way to mess this one up. It will cover all hair colors and hair types. But you need to use caution because black doesn’t look good on everyone. It will look good on dark and olive skins and it has a bit of a Goth look to it but it can make you look like you’ve got one foot in the grave if you are older or your skin is too fair. Black is also next to impossible to get out of your hair so great for short hair but think about it before doing your long hair. Are you sure you can live with it?

If you aren’t sure about the color you want to try and a semi permanent is appropriate it’s a great way to get a feel for a color. And if you don’t like it just wash your hair lots and it will be gone in no time. You can do permanent color changes at home but if you aren’t sure always check with a stylist.

So if you are tired of your same old hair and are ready change by coloring your hair get ready for a brand new look. Now the only question is what color will you choose?
