When we have a good hair day, it can feel like we are on top of the world and we can accomplish anything. When our hair looks and feels bad, we tend to not be on top of our game. In fact, when our hair is not healthy, it can make us feel pretty low. Our hair is an integral part of our self-expression and identity. How we wear our hair is one of the ways we portray our character and personality. Furthermore, our hair can be a window into our physical, mental, and emotional health. For people with thinning hair, it not only is worrisome because your image may change, but it also may indicate there is something more going on inside your body.
There are 5 root causes of hair thinning. Regrettably, hair follicles are quite sensitive to changes in your body so your hair growth cycle can be easily compromised. A typical healthy hair growth cycle includes about 90% of your hair follicles in the growth phase and 10% in the resting or shedding phase. If you undergo a change in your health, that can trigger a larger percentage of your hair follicles to transition to the resting phase causing more hair to shed. Most people shed 50-100 hairs per day. However, if you are experiencing one of the 5 root causes of hair thinning, it can make you lose nearly 300 hairs daily.
While most people will experience hair thinning at some point in life, thinning hair does not have to be permanent. Fortunately, advances in hair thinning technology have helped us discover remedies that can restore thickness, health, and vitality to your hair.
