Hair Loss Solutions

Embellish You’s HLS Hair Loss Solutions program was developed by doctors and hair loss specialists specifically for men and woman of all ages and ethnicities suffering hair loss.

To understand hair loss treatments properly and to get the best results, you should first understand hair loss itself. There are many causes of hair loss (see common causes of hair loss). The primary cause is both male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness, affecting almost 50% of adult males and 25% of adult women. This cause of hair loss is directly related to changes in your hair’s nutrition, levels of DHT and proper scalp hygiene. By knowing the cause of the loss, it will help us to understand how to prevent further loss and which hair loss solutions are most suitable and most effective.

Hair Loss, Hair Loss SolutionsThe basics of hair

The scalp is composed of 3 basic layers of skin: the epidermis, the dermis, and the subcutaneous layer. Within these 3 layers there are blood vessels, nerves, muscles, glands, and hair (or keratin).

Hair is supported by blood flow, which in turn requires oxygen and nutrients to promote cellular activity and new growth. As hair grows in the follicle, it is lubricated by the sebaceous gland that secretes oil in the follicle, coating the hair for smooth growth and creating healthy luster and sheen.

Good hair nutrition is vital for healthy hair, requiring that blood and nutrients reach the papilla area. When fewer nutrients reach the papilla hair cells reproduce at a much slower rate. Slower cellular activity produces thin, poor quality hair.

The basics of hair loss

DHT, or Dihydrotestosterone, causes 95% of all hair loss. DHT miniaturizes hair follicles by shortening the anagen (growth) Hair Loss, Hair Loss Solutionsphase and/or lengthening the telogen (resting) phase. This causes the hair follicles to slowly shrink and die, especially if DHT is involved. The net result is an increased number of short, thin, fine hairs barely visible above the scalp. For healthy hair growth, DHT inhibiting is needed once increased hair loss occurs. The interaction of DHT with androgen receptors in scalp skin and follicles appears to cause male and female pattern baldness.

The sebaceous oil building up causes sebum. Sebum collects in the hair follicle and hardens, causing a sebum plug that hinders hair growth. This compounded with existing weak hairs causes increased reduction in hair growth.

The good news is, even with thinning, fine hairs, there is still life in the follicle and it can be repaired with a proven HLS Hair Loss Solutions regime of proper hair nutrition, DHT blocking and good scalp hygiene.

Common Causes of Hair Loss

  • Auto immune diseases – an immune reaction attacks the hair at the root (or follicle). Anti-bodies attack hair tissue as if they were foreign invaders.
    • Androgenic Alopecia – the body’s immune system is sensitized to increased levels of DHT in the scalp causing hair loss in these high concentrated DHT areas. (DHT, or Dihydrotestosterone, causes 95% of all hair loss)
    • Alopecia totalis/universalis – immune sensitivity to a substance other than DHT.
  • Connective tissue disease – causes scarring of skin, loss of circulation to hair follicles and an autoimmune reaction leading to temporary or permanent loss of hair
    • Lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis, Scleroderma, MCTD.
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals – Common toxic chemicals, such as tobacco smoke, contains hundreds of lethal and damaging chemicals which can accelerate normal hair loss. This can be caused directly from smoking or indirectly from second hand smoke.
  • Chemotherapy or Radiation exposure – Irradiation therapy or exposure to radiation from any source can cause localized or total hair loss, sometimes permanently.
  • Iron deficiency anemia – very common with women but also can affect men.
  • Hormonal changes – due to pregnancy, birth control pills, menopause and/or illnesses
  • Thyroid disease – either hypothyroid or hyperthyroid disease causes hair to become brittle and break resulting in localized or generalized loss. Correction of the thyroid condition usually causes hair to re-grow.
  • Excessive or lack of vitamins – too much vitamin A can cause hair loss. Medicines – some prescription and over the counter meds can foster side effects such as hair loss (see below). Usually, when the medication is discontinued, the hair re-grows.
  • Individual reaction to illness or a personal sensitivity to the environment – Alopecia can be a reaction to foreign elements in your environment, similar to an allergic reaction.
  • Fungal and Bacterial Infections – impetigo and tinea capitis.
