WHAT CAUSES HAIR LOSS?
Hair loss is a common term used to identify hair fall. However, there are more to hair loss and how to better understand it.
Reactional alopecia is temporary whereby the loss of hair is caused by various factors like eg. Stress, emotional trauma, pregnancy, medication etc. Which can be easily treated if detected early.
Androgenic alopecia is however, hereditary and the progression of this condition result in the reduction in the quality and quantity of hair which can be further delayed by using the right products and care.
5-alpha-reductase is the enzyme that converts testosterone into the much more potent androgen, DHT. DHT, can shrink your hair follicles as well as shorten this cycle, causing hair to grow out looking thinner and more brittle, as well as fall out faster. DHT can also make it take longer for your follicles to grow new hairs once old hairs fall out.
OVERLOOKED COMMON SCALP CONDITIONS
Due to the humid weather in Singapore, common scalp conditions faced by many includes, sensitiveness, excess sebum production, dandruff and most commonly clog pores on the scalp as scalp is usually neglected due to it not being visible since its covered by our hair. The common tell sign that it’s time to have a better look on our scalp would be the constant itchiness, tightness, hair loss and having white flakes over our shoulders. All these are ways that our scalp is telling us that help is needed.
Incorrect lifestyle, poor nutrition, stress, atmospheric agents, as well as smog and adverse environmental factors cause accumulation of toxins and polluting particles on the scalp, which are hardly removed on their own or by using wrong shampoos. Accumulation can cause long-lasting problems(such as, scalp itching or even dermatitis), or discomforts such as oily or dry hair and dandruff.
Just like there are complete detox programs for body purification inside and out, which make us feel bolder and more energetic, cleansing routines can also be applied to remove large amount of impurities (dust, dead skin, shampoo residues, etc.) that accumulate on the scalp. Pores are attacked and prevent hair follicles from taking in nourishment. In this way, hair strands are “stifled”, weaken and break.
If your hair is less strong than before, less bright and dull, try to regenerate it starting with your scalp: let's not forget, in fact, that hair beauty and strength come from a healthy and properly cared scalp. Let's not neglect it then, and find out how to properly take care of your scalp.
