Hair loss solutions have always been a focus at Etiket. When Infusiderm, the company that made shampoo, conditioner and a treatment serum for hair loss closed, we took our time finding the right replacement. With the help of our medical director, we found Revivogen – a natural and effective hair loss solution for men and women.
It’s estimated that up to 30 percent of men will experience some loss of hair by the age of thirty, and that number goes up to 50 percent by the age of 50. So about half of all men will experience hair loss by mid-age. The cause of male pattern baldness is due to DHT (Dihydrotestosterone), a male sex hormone produced in the adrenal glands that can affect the hair follicles. Men with higher levels of DHT can experience a weakening of their hair follicles, a softening that can lead to less hair and/or finer hair. There are many ‘cures’ for men on the market and most can be found at your local drugstore in the form of topical solutions. These products include hair washes that can help to strengthen the hair follicle, leave-in-treatments, serums, or mousses which can be rubbed into the scalp and hair to help improve the thickness of existing hair.
Other than topical treatments, there are some prescription drugs that can help. Surgical solutions in the form of hair implants are other options to consider. Overall, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, exercising, and eating well may all contribute to hair loss prevention. For example, Biotin is a popular supplement used to help strengthen hair follicles.
Women lose their hair somewhat differently. Instead of a receding hairline or bald spot at the crown, most women see a widening of their part and/or overall thinning. Roughly 95 percent of thinning in women is due to female pattern hair loss, but there are other, causes as well. Elevated DHT levels for a woman with already existing genetic hair loss leads to the production of thin, short, colourless hair before the follicles eventually permanently stop producing any hair and dies off. The female hormones, estrogen and progesterone, normally shield the follicles from the effects of DHT, however, menopause can cause a decline in the levels of these hormones and lead to higher DHT levels and hair loss. Alopecia areata presents as patchy hair loss on the scalp or anywhere else on the body. As the hair falls out, smooth, round patches the size of a coin or larger become visible. This type of loss occurs in children and adults, and is caused by the immune system attacking the hair follicles. Alopecia areata can start and stop suddenly. Telogen effluvium Caused by anemia, low iron, inadequate protein, thyroid disease, surgery or illness, telogen effluvium presents as massive hair shedding over the entire scalp. Among the first symptoms of telogen effluvium is losing large amounts of hair in one’s hairbrush, in the shower or on the pillow. Once the root cause is identified and treated, this type of hair loss generally reverses in six to twelve months without the need for further treatment. Traction alopecia is a type of hair loss resulting from excessive strain on the hair follicles and is most commonly caused by braiding or the use of hair extensions. Regular pulling of the hair permanently damages the follicles and prevents it from regrowing.
