Lets talk about hair loss
Hair loss is something that a lot of people face, but is not usually discussed. This is why not a lot of people really know how to tackle the problem. If you’re experiencing hair loss or know someone who is, here’s some helpful information for you.
The Facts
Hair loss affects both men and women with the majority of Australians suffering from the condition in their lifetime
Hair growth starts to slow in your twenties and as a result you could start to see hair thinning or hair loss
By age 25, hair thinning or hair loss affects one in five men and women and this number increases to one in two by age 50
As we age we experience changing hormone levels and our body becomes less efficient at repairing itself. The growth phase of our hair cycle gets shorter and the resting phase gets longer, a bit like having an afternoon nap on the couch.  The speed at which hair grows slows down, so when hair is re-growing at a slower rate than it is falling out you end up with less hair
It is normal to shed between 50 and 150 hairs each day. The number of hairs lost may fluctuate seasonally
If you consistently notice more than the above numbers in your hairbrush, the shower, on your clothes or pillow over time, you may be experiencing progressive hair loss. In men the clincher is a receding hair line around the temples and visible scalp around the crown of the head. For women the tell-tale sign is a wider gap at the parting of the hair
Hair loss is a complex issue that can result from one or more factors including age, genetics, diet, stress, medication, hormone imbalance or an underlying medical condition
A visit to the doctor can rule out medical causes such as vitamin deficiency, thyroid dysfunction or address any underlying issues
If the cause is not due to an underlying medical condition, starting a hair health routine can help
With hair thinning, the hair follicles may still function, but they produce increasingly weaker ‘vellus’ hair. At that stage topical products may be helpful in restoring the ability to produce stronger hair
Top Tips For Maintaining A Healthy Head Of Hair
Eat a well-balanced diet. Severe crash dieting can take away the necessary building blocks for healthy hair and can cause most of the hair in the growth phase to suddenly shift to the resting phase and this can lead to hair loss.
Thinning hair is often fragile and more loosely attached to the scalp. So when it comes to styling, gentle is best.
Avoid tight hairstyles such as ponytails and buns and heat styling routines using straighteners. If you need to blow dry your hair, use a cooler setting.
Stay clear of hair extensions that are heavy and may pull, damage or break your hair. A regular, short trim can get rid of split ends that can keep breaking your hair.
Make sure your brush doesn’t scratch or scrape the scalp or pull hair excessively. Brush gently so if you come across knots, you don’t pull your hair out.
If no underlying health conditions then start a hair health regime with a natural clinically proven product.
évolis® is a natural and clinically proven product that is simple, quick and easy to incorporate into your daily routine. It works by restoring a healthy hair cycle, leading to the appearance of longer, thicker and healthier locks.

Metal is mixed up in oxygenation of your own body’s red body cells. It is essential for typical hair growth and maintaining healthy hair. If the quantity of metal can not be changed with food intake, metal lack may cause hair thinning as a result of oxygen deficiency.
