What are the main reasons for hair loss?
Several factors can cause hair loss including:
- The overproduction of the male hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone) causes follicles to miniaturize (shrink)
- Follicles weakened by a lack of nutrients, proper care or oxygen
- Damage due to wearing the hair consistently in a manner that pulls or tightens it
- A reduction in blood flow to the scalp
- Vitamin deficiencies
- Hormone fluctuations in menopausal women and post pregnancy
- Thyroid gland impairment that results in further hormone imbalances
How Does Human Hair Grow
When it comes to human hair growth, there are four phases, and they include:
- Anagen – The Growth Phase
- Catagen – The Transition Phase
- Telogen – The Resting Phase
- Exogen – The Shedding Phase
Human hair grows, on average, about half an inch each month. The anagen phase, or growth phase of the cycle, lasts from 2-7 years. Overall, the length of the anagen phase will determine the length of hair on a person.
Once the anagen phase nears its end, the transition stage known as the catagen phase begins. This phase is very short lived and only lasts around ten days. Despite its shortness, it is a very important part of the growth cycle since hair follicles decrease in size and detach from the dermal papilla.
Next, the telogen phase begins, this is better known as the resting phase of the hair growth cycle. This phase is 3-4 months long. In fact, anywhere from 10-15% of the hair on the scalp is in the telogen phase at any given moment. In other words, while the older hair is resting, the new hair is beginning to enter the growth phase.
The exogen phase of the hair growth cycle is better known as the shedding phase. This stage is when the old hair on the scalp detaches and sheds from the head. Anywhere from 50-150 hairs normally fall out of the scalp daily. As the exogen phase completes, a new bulb is forming, renewing the process with a return to the anagen phase.
Is there a difference between male and female hair loss?
On average, men start to lose their hair earlier in life. By the age of 35, most men start to see some loss occurring at the frontal hairline before it proceeds to the crown.
On the other hand, female hair loss tends to happen when women are a little bit older. By the age of 50, some females begin to lose hair throughout the scalp. Female hair loss typically presents itself as thinning hair that is not as noticeable as male pattern baldness. Thy-Renew restores both the hairline and positive self-image of a female suffering from hair loss.
How do I use the Thy-Renew Hair Regrowth System?
