Hair Loss Season
Now that autumn is ending, it’s not just the leaves that have fallen. Unfortunately, this time of year also brings with it an increase in hair loss among men. This is due to two effects: first of all, the hair anchorage system will have weakened during the warmer months, and secondly, the seasonal migration of hair stem cells leave hair temporarily without nourishment and more fragile.
This seasonal hair loss reaches extreme levels for those who suffer from male-pattern hair loss, a hereditary type of progressive hair loss that affects about 90% of men. Male-pattern hair loss, also called Androgenic Alopecia, is often triggered by changing elasticity in the scalp or by a slowing down of the entire metabolism, both of which typically occur as the seasons change and the nights close in.
So what’s the answer if you want to make it to 2016 with your precious locks intact? As always, prevention is the most powerful weapon against hair loss.
Barbiere carries a range of Medavita products which use the Lotion Concentrée Homme formulation which is a powerful weapon in the battle against hair loss in men, as it acts in a specific targeted area called the hair bulb.
Lotion Concentrée Homme is composed exclusively, of pure essential oils and plant extracts (Arnica, Rosemary, Aloe, Calamus, Myrrh, Cinnamon, Ginger, Galbanum, Nutmeg, Camphor, Serenoa repens) all of which are selected with great care from around the world. These oils and extracts function as anti-aging elixirs that bring a vitality and energy to the skin and hair, and are a source of unparalleled nourishment for the hair bulb.
The science bit:
Medavita’s Lotion Concentrée Homme has been shown in clinical tests to protect against hair loss by:
- Inhibiting the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme, the main cause of Male-pattern hair loss
- Soothing inflammation on the scalp
- Increasing local microcirculation, stimulating and strengthening the hair follicle
- Strengthening the hair anchorage system which increases hair lifespan
- Acting as a potent anti free radicals and anti-ageing serum
- Adding body and strength to the hair shaft through the localised release of active ingredients
- Promoting hair re-growth
Prevention is always the best attack against hair loss and with the right care and attention, a healthy diet and lifestyle, combined with the right products – you can keep your youthful locks for longer.
