THERE’S NOTHING GLAMOROUS ABOUT LOSING YOUR HAIR
Looking at yourself in the mirror and noticing that your hair is dull, flat and damaged is no fun either. Nor is regularly breaking your nails.
Our hair is an important part of our overall image. We want it to be attractive, silky and glossy.
Our hair is a reflection of our internal nutritional condition.
Hair growth and hair loss are normal phenomena and are mutually compensating.
The capillary cycle is made up of three phases:
The active phase, called the anagen phase lasts two to six years. If hair is healthy, 85% of the hair will be in its growth phase. The regressive phase called catagen, lasts two to four weeks and affects 1% of normal hair. The telogen phase is the end of the capillary cycle and lasts two to four months. 14% of normal hair dies during this phase, comes to the surface and is forced out by a new hair. A new cycle then starts.
The balance between hair loss and growth is affected by seasonal influences, by stress, fatigue, emotions, menopause, childbirth, daily use of hair products, hair dryers, etc.
In order to maintain healthy, vigorous hair, it is essential to have an adequate intake of vitamins and minerals. The absence of either one of these elements can affect the robust nature of your hair.
