There are a number of reasons for hair loss in both men and women. Just as in men, women’s hair loss may involve genetic and hormonal factors but there are many different factors causes hair loss in women than man. In addition to genetic and hormonal factors, poor blood circulation, poor nutrition, deficiencies in proteins, amino acid and vitamins, certain prescription drugs, birth control pills, pregnancy and stress can lead to hair loss in women.
Genetic hair loss is encountered in women, as well as in men. But genetic hair loss is the cause of just 30 % of all hair loss by women, and the factors and type of hair loss in women is different from that seen in men.
Additionally, the emergence, development and course of hair loss for women is entirely different than that found in men. For example, women very often will retain the frontal hairline that is so commonly lost in men, but have widespread miniaturization and thinning on the top and vertex. In men, the pattern of loss usually starts with a receding hairline which then advances to thin the top of the head.
When we look closely at conventional products aimed at preventing hair loss, we can see that these products focus on male hair loss and neglect to address the hair loss issues that are usually faced by women, as opposed to men. Hair loss treatment must be safe, easily applicable and have no side effects when used regularly; but most of the drugs used in male-type hair loss, also recommended to women, have strong side effects on women.
As a result, treatments can’t be used regularly, rendering their effects impermanent. At Alpaya Laboratories, we have developed Nutrigrow as part of our five-year long research, conducted with the dictum that “hair loss in women is different than men and must be treated with a distinct approach”.
Nutrigrow is not only effective against genetic hair loss, but also effective and safe against Telogen Effluvium and other common types of hair lossi in women.
Developed as a result of 5 years of research, Nutrigrow is totally different from conventional anti-hair loss products. Nutrigrow not only reduces the level of DHT with its peerless and patented formula, but also controls. Cellular activity and Vascular density that are vital for preventing hair loss and enabling the growth of new hair follicles.
Thanks to the timely and regular use, Nutrigrow prevents hair loss, helps strengthen the hair that is weakened and thinned out and enables the growth of new and healthy hair.
The most common types of hair loss in women:
( Female pattern hair loss) In women, thinning occurs over the entire top or crown of the scalp, sparing the front of the scalp. Androgenic alopecia can be caused by a variety of factors tied to the actions of hormones, including, ovarian cysts, the taking of high androgen index birth control pills, pregnancy, and menopause. The male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) also plays a critical role. Hair follicles at the top, front and temples are particularly sensitive to DHT. DHT shortens the hair growth cycle causing hair follicles to miniaturize and eventually leading to hair loss.
This common form of hair loss happens two to three months after a major body stress, such as a prolonged illness, major surgery, the loss of a loved one or serious infection. It also can happen after a sudden change in hormone levels, especially in women after childbirth. Moderate amounts of hair fall out from all parts of the scalp, and may be noticed on a pillow, in the tub or on a hairbrush. While hair on some parts of the scalp may appear thinner, it is rare to see large bald spots.
This condition is caused by localized trauma to the hair follicles from tight hairstyles that pull at hair over time. If the condition is detected early enough, the hair will regrow. Braiding, cornrows, tight ponytails, and extensions are the most common styling causes.
Seasonal Hair Loss:
Some people suffer from increased hair loss during the summer or winter- time. Women are especially prone to seasonal influences. Summer time hair loss is due to a transition period between little and much sunlight. In winter the opposite happens. These changes jointly affect one's hormone cycle. The role of sunlight (in providing Vitamin D), the natural changing of the hormone cycle, and the stress are associated with seasonal hair loss.
