Fact or Fiction: Prescription shampoos for scalp diseases cause hair damage.

Posted by Admin, on March 5th, 2009, under HAIR LOSS FACTS



The two most common scalp diseases are dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis. People often view products that treat these conditions as harsh and medicinal. Some hair loss sufferers think they have to choose to live with the scalp problems rather than use with what they fear are harmful chemicals. However, technological now allow prescription shampoos to have the necessary medication to treat dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis while also containing the same mild cleansers found in cosmetic shampoos. When used properly, prescription shampoos can effectively help keep your hair healthy.

Fact or Fiction: Dandruff can contribute to hair loss

Posted by Admin, on March 5th, 2009, under HAIR LOSS FACTS


Dandruff is caused by a type of fungus called Malassezia Globosa.

This yeast-like fungus lives on the scalps of most healthy adults without causing problems. However, sometimes it grows out of control, leading to an increase in the amount of skin cells and an itching sensation on the scalp.

Continuous scratching by the fingernails can damage and even remove the cuticular scale, a protective covering on individual hairs.


This loss leaves the hair shaft weakened and permanently damaged, making it susceptible to breakage and hair loss.

Fact or Fiction: Blow-drying hair with heat can worsen hair loss

Posted by Admin, on March 4th, 2009, under HAIR LOSS FACTS



Blow drying hair is a common morning ritual for many people. While it is a quick, convenient way to dry and style hair, blow drying damages hair high heat from a blow dryer can actually boil the water in the hair shaft leaving it brittle.

In addition, vigorous towel rubbing or combing of wet hair also can cause hair loss, since wet hair is more elastic and more vulnerable to breakage than dry hair.

In order to minimize hair shaft damage hair should be allowed to at least partially air dry before styling and combing.

The secret of why our hair goes grey …and the shampoo that could reverse its effects

Posted by Admin, on March 4th, 2009, under HAIR LOSS SCIENCE


It’s a dark day for grey hair: scientists think they know why our locks lose their colour. Too much bleach.
However, it’s not necessarily the stuff that comes in a bottle but our natural supplies of hydrogen peroxide, which plays a vital role in many bodily processes.

Wear and tear on our bodies leads to dangerously high levels building up in the roots of our hair, blocking the production of pigment, Bradford University researchers found.

Grey hair is a tell-tale sign of the inevitable ageing process – but scientists are testing a drug which could reverse it

Their study raises the tantalising prospect that a shampoo or potion that cuts levels of hydrogen peroxide will restore grey or white hair to its natural shade or even stop us going grey in the first place.

The researchers are already testing such a drug on three friends whose brown hair has turned grey and expect to know within the next two months whether it works.

If it does, millions would welcome the prospect of a more permanent and natural alternative to expensive dyes. However, even if it works, the drug would take several years to reach our shelves.

Experiments found high levels of hydrogen peroxide in grey hair and lower than expected levels of three enzymes, including one that usually keeps hydrogen peroxide in check, the FASEB Journal reports.

Researcher Karin Schallreuter, who collaborated with colleagues at two German universities, said: ‘This discovery is a major breakthrough in the understanding of hair greying and opens up some novel ideas to combat the scenario.’

She said young women who use hydrogen peroxide-based dyes to lighten their hair should not necessarily worry. In older women, though, such dyes may speed up the greying process.

It is thought that genetics control if and when a person will go grey, although stress, alcohol, smoking and poor diet are believed to accelerate the process. Most Britons spot their first grey hairs around the age of 25.
