What is the Solution to Hair Loss?
There are several reasons for hair loss and it can be a very distressing situation.
But the good news is that most hair loss is temporary and can be treated!
The first step is always to identify the cause and then find the best solution.
The main causes of hair loss are:
- Poor Diet
- Male Pattern Baldness
- Desalinated Water
Is your hair loss caused by poor diet?
Hair cells grow quicker than practically any other cells in your body, and so they require a continuous supply of nutrients.
But because hair is not an essential body organ, it is low down on your own body’s list of priorities and receives its nutrients last.
If you are eating a poor diet, your hair is the first to show it.
When it comes to hair growth, there is one mineral that makes a big difference: Iron.
It is also important to get plenty of Vitamin C to help the absorption of Iron.
Is your hair loss caused by Male Pattern Baldness?
While male pattern baldness is often genetic and hereditary, our trichologist recommends that the best way to slow down hair loss and promote new growth is to massage your scalp with Permea Plus Hair Repair Massage Oil for a few minutes twice a week before you wash your hair.
This stimulates blood flow to the hair follicles.
All men, even those in their early twenties, should massage their scalp for two minutes before washing their hair.
Is your hair loss caused by Stress?
Stress causes hair loss.
This is because a huge amount of tension is stored in the scalp which restricts vital blood and nutrient flow to the hair roots.
To ease this, try regular scalp massage for a few minutes prior to washing your hair with Permea Plus Hair Repair Massage Oil.
This has very good results and you will find that after a few weeks your scalp is less tight and much more flexible.
This is a good sign as the follicles remain open and you will soon start to feel healthy, strong new growth near the scalp.
Is your hair loss caused by Desalinated or Hard Water?
If you live in a place that uses desalinated water such as Gulf countries or in hard water areas, you may be experiencing hair loss due to the water you are using to wash your hair.
Desalinated water is also used on cruise ships.
The problem with desalinated or hard water is that it contains minerals that can damage the hair, causing it to break off.
So what is often perceived as hair fall is in fact hair breakage.
To check if your hair fall is caused by breakage, look at the hair strand under a magnifying glass: if there is no hair bulb or root, it is hair breakage, probably caused by desalinated water.
Fortunately the hair will grow back again with the proper treatment.
Permea Plus Anti-Sal Shampoo contains a rich and nourishing formula, full of natural ingredients to gently dissolve the damaging mineral deposits in the cuticle and from around the hair follicle.
Permea Plus Anti-Sal Conditioner has a super-moisturising formula to restore moisture balance, strength and elasticity to the hair.
