Nioxin – The Facts About Hair Thinning
Factors that can cause hair thinning
Genetics - The structure of your hair is influenced by genetics. Genetic hair loss can’t be reversed, but there are steps you can take to slow it down and maximize your hair growth potential.
Stress and Trauma - Stressful experiences can cut short the anagen phase (the growth phase) and push more hairs into the telogen phase (the rest stage). This is why stress is known to be a trigger for this type of hair loss.
Nutrition - A lack of the right nutrients, including vitamins A, C, D, and E, zinc, B vitamins, iron, biotin, protein, and essential fatty acids, may slow down hair growth or even cause hair loss.
Health concerns or medication - Hair loss is a relatively rare side effect, but a variety of medications may cause it: beta-blockers, blood thinners, antidepressants, cholesterol-lowering drugs, certain nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and hormone-related drugs like thyroid meds, hormone replacement therapies or steroids.
Environmental factors - Elements in our surrounding environment such as air pollutants and minerals in water may impact the quality of the hair and potentially contribute to thinning, along with sun exposure which weakens the hair shaft
Nioxin: A Skin Care Regimen for Hair
Nioxins principle is that healthy hair grows from a healthy scalp.
A healthy scalp should have normal moisture balance, zero buildup, and no flakes and zero redness, itching or tenderness, and no odour.
They have created five simple steps to follow to achieve this.
Start by removing the buildup from your scalp with a scalp exfoliator.
The scalp shampoo cleanses the hair and scalp and removes sebum, for best results use cool to warm water.
Apply your scalp conditioner which helps to retain moisture balance, providing hair resilience reducing breakage and leaves the hair fuller looking. Apply a hydrating conditioner to your mid lengths and ends for optimal moisture.
This volumizing leave-on treatment helps to provide thicker-looking hair by increasing the fullness of each hair strand, which amplifies hair texture while protecting against breakage.
Choose a treatment based on your hair and scalp issues for the final layer of protection whether that is a strengthening mask, a leave in serum or to protect the hairs density.
