Hair Loss and Aging

Have you ever looked in the mirror and noticed you were losing your hair? Hair loss can manifest in several ways including bald spots, thinning hair, or a widening hairline. It’s a distressing and common problem. One common thought is that hair loss is a product of aging. It’s true that some conditions that trigger hair loss become more common with age, but you can experience thinning hair at any stage in life. While most people believe hair loss mostly affects men, women experience it too. Around 55% of women will experience some hair loss by age seventy (1). The most common cause of hair thinning and hair loss in both men and women is a hereditary condition called androgenic alopecia (2). Men with this condition develop bald patches while women are more likely to experience a receding hairline.

Other Causes of Hair Loss and Thinning Hair

Genetics is only one factor that contributes to hair loss. Health issues such as an underactive thyroid gland, autoimmune conditions, malnutrition, pregnancy, and scalp conditions commonly cause thinning hair (3). If you’re losing more than 100 hairs per day, ask your doctor about your medications, as some prescription ones can trigger hair loss.

An example is cancer chemotherapy, which may cause significant hair thinning and hair loss. Prolonged physical or mental stress is another cause of hair thinning. Even lifestyle habits, like wearing tight ponytails, can pull on your scalp enough to cause hair loss.

Regardless of the cause, hair loss is damaging to self-esteem. As your hair thins, you might feel less attractive or less confident. It’s not uncommon for people with hair loss to experience depression or anxiety. Some people even hide from social gatherings because they are ashamed of their appearance or fear others will notice their thinning hair.

Hair Growth Treatments that Work!

Here’s the good news. There are treatments available for hair loss, but see your doctor to ensure you don’t have a health condition that’s causing your hair to thin. Once you have a clean bill of health, you have options.

Today, there are treatments that help stop hair loss, restore hair growth, and even prevent the problem from reoccurring. Dealing with hair loss has never been easier, thanks to the wide range of effective products on the market. Let’s look at some treatment options we’ve selected for our clients, that are backed by science.

Rejuvenate Minoxidil Hair Regrowth System

Minoxidil is an ingredient approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for hair loss. Hair growth occurs in phases and Minoxidil shortens the time hair strands spend in the resting phase of hair growth (4). Minoxidil is also a vasodilator, opening blood vessels and increasing blood flow to the scalp. By boosting blood flow, minoxidil delivers more nutrients directly to the hair follicle, which helps stimulate new hair growth. Best of all, minoxidil is effective for all types of hair.

Rejuvenate Women’s Minoxidil Hair Regrowth System and Rejuvenate Men’s Minoxidil Hair Regrowth System is a three-step system that contains 2% (or 5%) minoxidil, plant extracts, and antioxidants that support scalp health. This system is designed to stop hair thinning and promote hair regrowth while nourishing the scalp and protecting against oxidative damage.

Minoxidil was originally developed as a high blood pressure medication (4). One of the side effects was hair regrowth, so it was repurposed as a treatment for hair loss and thinning. Research studies show Minoxidil stimulates hair regrowth, but it may take 3 to 6 months to see visible results. Even if you don’t see a change at first, behind the scenes, it’s working to boost hair regrowth while improving your hair’s strength, texture, and health.

The hair system also includes specially formulated shampoo and conditioner that works to optimize scalp and hair health.

Nutrafol - a Nutraceutical Supplement

Healthy hair begins from the inside. Nutrafol is a nutraceutical supplement formulated for hair loss and thinning hair. Nutrafol for Men and Nutrafol for Women combine natural ingredients that support hair and scalp health and promote hair regrowth. Let’s look at each one.

Nutrafol for Men contains ingredients like resveratrol, curcumin, and tocotrienol complex that fight free radical damage to the scalp and have anti-inflammatory activity. Another ingredient, saw palmetto, offers benefits too. It’s scientifically proven to block an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase that converts testosterone to DHT, a contributor to hair loss in men. (6) Plus, an herbal remedy called horsetail shows promise for stopping hair loss and promoting hair regrowth.

Nutrafol for Men also contains ingredients from the sea, including kelp and marine collagen to support scalp health and create an environment that supports hair regrowth. Ashwagandha, an herbal ingredient in Nutrafol for Men, helps counter stress and stress-related hair loss (6). These natural ingredients work together to counter hair thinning and hair loss.

There’s also Nutrafol for Women, specially formulated for the hair and scalp needs of women. It contains a blend of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, including resveratrol, curcumin, tocotrienol complex for hair and scalp health, and ingredients from the sea like marine complex and kelp. Nutrafol for Women also contains the herb horsetail.

Because stress-related hair loss is common in women, Nutrafol for Women is formulated with Ashwagandha to help subdue the body’s stress response. That’s important since stress can worsen hair loss.
