Noticing Hair Loss or Breakage? Hemp to the Rescue

http://detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080415/LIFESTYLE03/804150401Many women are plagued with premature hair loss due to pregnancy, hormonal changes, chemical treatments, and stress.  There are many products such as Nioxin and Murad that are known to reduce excessive daily hair loss but what if you want to use something natural?

We have found the answer!  If you have noticed a slight decrease in hair density or have experienced hair breakage due to a poorly executed color, perm, or relaxer this homegrown remedy will surely bring those locks back to optimum health.

Step 1: Mix 1 tbsp of each of the following teas:

       Indian Hemp: Promotes hair growth

       Nettle: Prevents hair breakage

       Rosemary: Prevents hair breakage and loss

(StyleBell Tip: You can find these teas in your local natural market)

Step 2: Add to 2-3 cups of water and bring to a boil. Boil the tea mixture until water is a deep color (usually about 10 to 15 mintues).

Step 3: Strain the tea and add 1 tsp Boric Acid.  (Boric Acid is a natural preservative.)  Store the mixture in the refrigerator to keep.

Step 4: When ready to use soak a cotton ball in the mixture and apply directly on your scalp daily.  Keep the mixture on your scalp for about 5 – 15 minutes.  Rinse the hair with the mixture and then rinse out with warm water.

Step 5:  Continue with this rinse daily.  You will start noticing the difference after day 4 or 5!

Leading Causes of Hair Loss

If you’re losing your hair you know it’s a serious thing, but did you ever wonder why it’s happening? Here are the top causes of hair loss according to one of our favorite hair loss authorities Nioxin.

Family: Yep, genetics. Though you may have heard that hair loss runs through your mother’s father, the way your body converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is hereditary from mom or pop.

Hormones: Certain health changes during pregnancy, childbirth and menopause may make your hormones whacky, and cause hair loss. So can improper thyroid function – those hormones again!

Environment: External pollution, mineral deposits from your water in the shower (hint – filter it), and toxins in the air can all contribute to hair loss. Internal toxins inside your body can also be a trigger, so try to detox.

Drugs: Steroids, birth control pills, chemo treatments, acne meds, heart pills, you name it. If you are taking any medication it could possibly cause loss of hair. Your hair follicles are super sensitive and don’t like change.

Stress: When we’ve “had it up to here” and stressed to the max the body produces increased testosterone. Yep, and this is converted to DHT which interferes with hair growth. De-stress. Relax. Chill.

Diet: High fat, fad diets and bad eating habits can all contribute to the health of your hair. Things like iron, biotin and protein are all vital for healthy hair and if you’re diet is lacking, well you know.

What can you do? Try to avoid all of the triggers. Unfortunately you cannot escape heredity but you can make sure you follow a healthy diet and stay away from the stress! Hey, every little bit helps.

A Winning Shampoo and Conditioning Sidekick

Abba True Shine ConditionerI am usually not a big fan of the matchy-matchy, but I do believe in using a shampoo and conditioner duo dedicated to your particular hair texture and type from time to time. Whether your hair is straight or curly, black, brown or blonde, color-treated or thinning, or a combination of these, there is a specific set out there tailored for your individual hair concerns and needs.

Using a shampoo and its conditioning cousin together on a regular basis actually increases the benefits of each, and really gives your hair that one, two punch it needs. Over time my hair gets ‘used to’ certain products so I tend to switch back and forth between brands every few weeks, but I always keep the following (from the straight hair section) in my shower rotation. There is a reason for the matching names, they work together – what a concept right? Check out these product lines, they definitely do not disappoint:

Silky, smooth and straight: Pureology Super Straight, Abba True Shine (pictured above), L’anza Strait-Line, Frederic Fekkai Glossing.

Davines Love Curl Enhancing ConditionerCurls, twirls and waves: Davines LOVE Curl Enhancing (pictured left), Bumble and bumble Curl Conscious, Abba True Curls.

My hair has “natural” highlights (shhh!): CHI Ionic Color Protector, Pureology,

Thinning, flat or fine: Murad Professional Treatment, Biolage Bodifying Volumatherapie, Nioxin.

So many of us have a combination of hair concerns and styling needs and the good news is there are plenty of choices out there. Thanks to focused formulations and innovative ingredients we can each find our own dynamic duo. See? Sometimes matchy-matchy is a good thing.

My Relaxed Hair is Thinning

Question:
I am African American and my hair is breaking. I do not color my hair, but it is relaxed and it’s breaking at the ends and I’m also noticing some thinning. I also have dandruff and I need something that works fast! What do you suggest?
– Mabel via phone

Answer:
Did you know you lose about a 100 hairs a day naturally? Anything more than that could mean early stage thinning hair, damage/breakage, an unhealthy scalp – and most likely, all three.

First I would address the scalp and thinning issues with a hair solution hair care like Nioxin or Murad. Based on your hair type and thinning I think Nioxin would be best for you. It’s a three step system (cleanser, conditioner, treatment) to be used daily, and in the aforementioned order.

Nioxin System 3 KitNioxin hair care comes in a number of different programs depending on your hair concerns and for you I would suggest using System 3. This formulation was specially developed for chemically enhanced hair that is in the early stages of thinning.

Think about it, your scalp is essentially skin, so you want to keep that in optimal health so new, healthy hair can grow. If your scalp is unhealthy, it will definitely lead to hair thinning and other hair concerns such as dandruff, breakage, etc. Additionally, your hair is also relaxed, you need hair care that will not only heal, but protect your scalp environment.

All of the Nioxin thinning hair care products work on hair that is developing in the follicle in the Growth Cycle, by feeding nutrients and making needed repairs, but Nioxin System 3 contains an exclusive Glyco-fused Complex that will protect your scalp from the over-drying and irritation caused by those chemical treatments you love to get. Nioxin also helps reduce the breakage and damage you are experiencing as well by strengthening the new hair growth by nourishing your scalp.

We carry all three pieces (shampoo, conditioner and treatment) separately, but we also have a starter kit that makes it easy to start caring for your thinning hair in 3 simple steps. Let us know how it goes!

Thinning Hair? Meet Nioxin

For nearly twenty years, Nioxin has worked at unraveling the complex challenge of how best to address, and most importantly, how to provide a solution for thin-looking hair for the millions who battle this discouraging problem. After years of research it is clear to them that the health of the scalp is directly related to the health and growth cycle of human hair, and practicing proper scalp hygiene requires a careful process of preventive maintenance and daily care.
 
Nioxin Sytem 1 Starter KitFor Nioxin, it takes more than one step or one product to achieve a healthy, nourished scalp. It’s important to use a system of customized products for your hair type and condition—products that cleanse the hair shaft, the environment on the scalp skin and the follicle tissue.
 
Then, it’s essential to moisturize and energize the cellular activity of the scalp skin and the living hair, nourishing the hair follicle and surrounding tissue. This process requires using select cleansers, conditioners and treatments, supplements and styling products that contain bionutrients, like vitamins, proteins and amino acids.
 
Did you know?
Many conventional shampoos, conditioners and styling products simply coat the hair and create buildup on the scalp. The scalp must be treated properly to keep the scalp environment and hair looking young, healthy and vibrant.
 
Only Nioxin has the unconventional ingredients and unconventional products for that process. Nioxin products are formulated to be Skincare for the scalp because beautiful, healthy-looking hair starts where your hair begins—with the scalp.
 
Through a daily regimen of cleansing, moisturizing and nourishing, each Nioxin system works to help improve the appearance of thinning hair while creating and maintaining an optimum scalp environment in three easy steps:
 
Nioxin System 1 Shampoo

Step 1
CLEANSE: Your daily volumizing cleanser should gently remove residue and DHT from the hair and scalp to promote a healthy scalp environment.

It should also provide nourishing vitamins, proteins and amino acids. See Nioxin Shampoo Cleanser System 1.
 
 

Nioxin System 1 ConditionerStep 2
MOSTURIZE:
A daily volumizing hair and scalp conditioner should moisturize and energize while promoting a healthy scalp environment with soothing essential oils, special anti-oxidants and enzymatic complexes.

See Nioxin Scalp Therapy Conditioner System 1.


 

Nioxin System 1 Scalp TherapyStep 3
NOURISH: A daily leave-in scalp treatment should contain an SPF 15 sunscreen that protects the scalp skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays – while delivering essential botanicals, nutrients, antioxidants and cytokines (proteins) onto the scalp skin and hair to help safeguard against environmental residue and DHT buildup on the scalp. See Nioxin Scalp Treatment System 1.
