Hair Loss and Thinning

 

Understanding Hair Loss

Hair loss, also known as alopecia may be temporary or permanent and it may affect only the scalp or the entire body.  While it is more common in men, about a third of women also will experience thinning hair at some point in their lives. 

Some hair loss is normal on a daily basis.  Approximately 50-100 hairs are lost each day as normal hair growth and behavior, however we don’t notice thinning because those hairs are being replaced by new growth.  The hair’s natural growth cycle occurs in three stages:

  1. Anagen Stage - The hair is actively growing and can last from 2 to 8 years.

  2. Catagen Stage – The catagen stage is a short transition phase that lasts up to 3 weeks.  The hair is preparing to shed and growth has stopped.

  3. Telogen Stage - The hair sheds in the telogen stage and the hair follicle stays dormant for approximately 3 months before new hair begins to grow.
     

Every individual has a unique pattern of shedding hair.  The first step is to look at what may be happening inside the body that could be causing more hair loss than what is normal for that person.  When normal shedding becomes more pronounced or the hair begins coming out in clumps, it is time to see a specialist to determine the cause of the hair loss and thinning changes occurring.
 

Hair Loss Symptoms
 

Hair loss and thinning can be very traumatic for the person who is experiencing it.  It can be a long, slow process or happen suddenly, depending upon the cause of the hair loss. 
 

Some of the symptoms of hair loss are:

  • Gradual thinning on the top of the head

  • Patchy bald spots

  • Sudden loosening of hair that may come out in clumps

  • Full-body hair loss

  • Areas of scaling that spread over the scalp
     

While gradual hair thinning is considered a normal part of aging, it is a good idea to talk with your health care professional. Early treatment for some conditions may prevent more permanent damage or baldness.

 

Hair Loss Causes and Risk Factors
 

There are many factors that may be involved when looking at the causes of hair loss.  Some of the more common causes are:  Family history, hormonal changes, medical conditions, medications, radiation therapy, stress, hairstyles, poor nutrition, aging, or significant weight loss.
 

Tips to Prevent Hair Loss
 

Baldness caused by genetics, for both males and females, is not preventable.  For other types of hair loss, early care and detection may help slow or prevent the loss.  In some cases, hair loss may be reversed if caught early enough.
 

  • Always be very gentle with your hair

  • Stay away from harsh products and treatments

  • Learn if any medications you are taking may contribute to hair loss

  • Protect your hair from the sun

  • Improve your diet and lifestyle

  • Stop smoking

  • Use a cooling cap if you need chemotherapy

Protocol for NeoGenesis Hair Thickening Serum
 

The general protocol is for once daily use.  It may be beneficial to use NeoGenesis Hair Thickening Serum twice daily for the first 30 days, then once a day after the first 30 days.
 

  1. Dampen the scalp with a bit of water so the hair shaft will not absorb the serum. The hair does not need to be cleansed. 

  2. In the area of concern, part the hair and put a drop of two of the Hair Thickening Serum in the parted area.  Massage into the skin and move to the next area.

  3. Style hair as usual
