Hair, which has always been a real obsession for many women, in recent years has become increasingly the object of attention also for men. Hair care, in fact, is a fundamental and obligatory step to have a self-image that pleases ourselves and others.

At some point in our life, as we age, we all come across a situation that for many is experienced as a real nightmare: hair loss. In reality it is a natural process, a symptom that everything in our body works perfectly.
Hair is a living organism that follows a cycle lasting an average of 2-6 years, shorter in males and longer in females. Hair growth occurs at the rate of 1-1.5 cm per month. Once their life cycle is exhausted, they fall to be replaced by new ones. It is believed that 90 - 95% of a healthy person's hair is always in the growth phase, while only 5 - 10% of the hair is inactive and ready to fall out. Luckily, the hair follicles are independent of each other and this prevents our hair from falling out all together. Generally up to about 100 hairs are lost per day. There may also be times in the year when hair loss is greater than in other periods, such as during seasonal changes, in autumn and spring. In particular stressful conditions for the body, the cycle just described can slow down its activity, resulting in a more delayed birth of new hair.

Hair loss, the most common cause

Tracing the origin of the problem is often the main concern of those who face hair loss. In the male and female gender, hair loss occurs in different ways: receding hairline with receding of the frontal line is typical in men, while in women it diffuses the entire vertex of the scalp. The causes can be many, in particular they affect:

  • A physical or emotional shock can cause sudden hair loss, which occurs three to four months after it happened. Hormones are responsible for this fall, but as the body and morale recover, the hair regains its normal cycle.
  • The smoke. Smoking modifies blood circulation in the scalp, preventing the supply of nutrients starting from the hair fiber.
  • Lifestyle and improper diet. It is very important to remember that the hair feeds on the same things that its owners eat. So, if our diet is lacking in nutrients, vitamins and fiber, the hair will suffer.
  • Hereditary and hormonal factors. Heritage inherited from parents or grandparents is one of the main causes of hair loss. Hormonal aspects also affect hair loss: in women it is linked to the lack of estrogen, in men by that of male hormones.
  • Dysfunctions and pathologies. Dysfunction of the thyroid and endocrine glands increases the chances of suffering from hair loss. Same thing for those suffering from anemia: if the blood is depleted or has iron deficiency, even the hair will be weakened until it falls out more consistently.
  • Frequent discolorations and dyes.
  • Incorrect use of hair dryers and plates.

Remedies to slow down hair loss

As explained, hair loss is a natural process that affects everyone, regardless of age and gender. However, when there is more hair loss than usual, a good hair routine, from washing to the products used, can help nourish and strengthen the hair.

  • Wash. The hair weakens with each wash, so in case of a particular period of stress it would be good to avoid daily washing. The scalp spontaneously produces natural oils that act as a protective barrier against external agents and environmental factors, which however risks being compromised with too frequent washing.

  • Products.Choose an anti-hair loss shampoo based on natural, non-aggressive products and that has combined an effective conditioner to strengthen the hair and decrease the fall.

  • Drying. After washing your hair, avoid rubbing it with a towel; pat them gently to remove excess water. Avoid brushes with thick and hard bristles; opt for a wide-toothed comb to comb the hair from the scalp down to the lengths.

Use 1 patch every 24 hours, taking care not to apply the next patch to the area just treated. Do not apply the patch to skin that is not intact or sensitive. Gently remove the patch and throw in the appropriate waste container.
