True or false? Hair loss and hair thinning affects only 67% of men, but 85% of women. The answer is true. 85% of women are affected by some form of hair loss, from what is commonly known as alopecia (Alopecia Areata, AA) to nutritional deficiencies such as low protein levels.
A good head of hair plays an important part in the emotional wellbeing of a person, making them feel attractive and confident. Both men and women who see bald patches appearing or their hair thinning can be affected emotionally, resulting in low self esteem, and embarrassment. We all accept that we will age, but for women, understandably, hair loss is not recognised as part of the normal ageing process.
The 3 main causes of hair loss are Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA), Alopecia Areata (AA), severe stress, and as a side effect of some drugs such as HRT, chemotherapy, and certain oral contraceptives. Furthermore, hair loss is on the rise, but thankfully for those seeking help, there are several solutions available from us at www.lifepharmacy.co.uk and local pharmacies and chemists.
Regaine is the only treatment licensed in the UK for the treatment of Androgenetic alopecia, or AGA and a best seller at www.lifepharmacy.co.uk. Available in 2 strengths, it works by increasing the blood flow to the hair follicles, ensuring hair follicles are kept in their growth phase for longer and grow bigger, thus slowing down the rate of thinning. Regaine should be used for 12 months before an assessment is carried out, and continued use is necessary to ensure its success. Unfortunately once you stop using Regaine, hair will begin falling out again.
Nourkrin is becoming one of the most popular hair loss treatments around, and has been proven to help combat Alopecia and thinning hair. A recent study in Sweden found that 90% of women taking Nourkrin saw a 50% improvement in their hair loss. Clinical trials have also shown that its protein compound, made up of marine extracts, blended with soluble silica and Vitamin C, plays a role in strengthening hair and promoting hair growth. Just like Regaine, Nourkrin should be used for 12 months, as it can take between 3 and 6 months for improvements in re-growth and thickness to be seen.
Another great seller at www.lifepharmacy.co.uk well known product is called Vitabiotics Tricologic Tablets both for men and women. Tricologic is a carefully balanced combination of vitamins, minerals and bio-active nutrients developed to nourish hair follicles and support the healthy growth of hair. Tricologic delivers its benefits via the bloodstream directly to the hair roots and has been formulated on the basis of the latest scientific research. The formula may also help skin condition and strengthen nails.
For those who are concerned about their hair loss or thinning, help is at hand. Not all remedies may be suitable for each individual condition, but depending on the severity of the condition, results could be seen within 6 months.
