Luxurious Help for Hair Loss Sufferers.

Posted by Gary Heron, on December 26th, 2007, under HAIR LOSS PRODUCTS AND TREATMENTS, TRICHOTALK

Robin Hempel, 40, is a thyroid patient (she’s hypothyroid) who struggled with hair loss, and came up with an innovative product to help people with hair and skin problems: Pavatisilk. Her new company sells pillowcases and hair scrunchies that have special properties. I asked Robin to share her story…

Thyroid and hormonal issues were wreaking havoc on my hair and skin. My hair was getting brittle and dry, and worst of all, falling out. It was one of the toughest times in my life! I had bouts of adult acne that I just could not control.

I was falling apart and was determined to do everything I could to help my hair and skin while I was getting my thyroid and hormonal issues under control! One thing I knew for sure is that I needed to be extra gentle on my hair and keep my skin as clean as possible.
I knew that when you sleep, gravity and friction against cotton was not helping. Cotton is rougher under a microscope and absorbs bacteria’s, moisture and oils. I learned from my past experience of working for over 10 years in my Mom’s fabric shop, and working with a scientist and biologist, that I could come up with something gentler for my hair and skin while I slept for hours upon hours each night!

That’s how Pavati Silk was created. The patent pending weave is so tight, hair glides across it. Fragile hair does not get caught in the weave and further damaged or even tugged out. Pavatis are naturally antibacterial and antifungal, keeping my skin cleaner and nighttime allergies at bay! Pavati Silk is lipohobic (repels oils and lipids) and hygroscopic (absorbs limited amounts of moisture) which keeps hair and skin in a more normal balance.
After using my Pavati, I was getting fewer split ends and had no more bed head. I truly feel Pavatis made an enormous difference in caring for my fragile hair and skin on the outside, while I was dealing with balancing my thyroid and my hormones on the inside.

Three cheers for Robin for coming up with a solution to a problem, and creating a product to help her fellow hair loss sufferers! You can check out the line of beautiful Pavati pillowcases and scrunchies (they come in various solid colors and prints) online at their site.

Natural Hair Loss Treatment Products Provillus Review.

Posted by Gary Heron, on December 26th, 2007, under HAIR LOSS CLINIC REVIEWED

If you are looking for the best natural hair loss treatment product, I highly recommend Provillus. Provillus is made from 100% natural herbs and minerals and is proven to stop hair loss after use.

There are many proven hair loss products available in the market and the best treatment for an individual depends on the cause of the hair loss. If you use the correct medication for the type of hair loss you are experiencing, then you will experience positive results.

Products like Provillus work by blocking dehydrotestosterone (DHT) which is the leading cause of hair loss. Provillus is proven most effective for this condition but if you use it for other types of hair loss then it is not effective.

Study Finds Cholesterol Fine-Tunes Hearing: Research in rodents shows amount in outer hair cell membranes affects sound.

Posted by Gary Heron, on December 26th, 2007, under HAIR LOSS SCIENCE, TRICHOTALK

FRIDAY, Dec. 14 (HealthDay News) — The amount of cholesterol in the outer hair cell membranes of the inner ear can affect hearing, a new U.S. study concludes.

“We’ve known for a long time that cholesterol is lower in the outer hair cell membranes than in the other cells of the body. What we didn’t know was the relationship it had to hearing,” senior author Dr. William Brownell, a professor of otolaryngology at Baylor College of Medicine, said in a prepared statement.

In the study, published Dec. 14 in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, researchers manipulated cholesterol levels in the outer hair cells of the inner ears of mice and then measured the rodents’ hearing ability.

“Depleting the cholesterol resulted in a hearing loss. Adding cholesterol initially increased hearing but later resulted in a hearing loss. So, you can change an animal’s hearing just by adding or subtracting cholesterol,” Brownell said.

The fine-tuning of cholesterol in these cells happens naturally during development and doesn’t change much after birth. That’s different than cholesterol levels in the blood, which can vary with eating habits.

“Will our hearing be affected if we continually eat greasy meals? Right now, we don’t see a connection between the two,” Brownell said. “The results of the study help us understand the cellular mechanisms for regulating hearing and give us another way to potentially help those with hearing loss.”

Women Lose Their Hair Too: By Dr. Murray Feingold

Posted by Gary Heron, on December 12th, 2007, under FEMALE HAIR LOSS

Hair loss in women is not uncommon. Studies have shown that it takes place in more than one-third of all women sometime during their life.

Although certainly not life threatening, it can have a significant emotional effect.

The most common type of hair loss in women is female pattern hair loss.

Although female pattern hair loss can take place at any age after puberty, it occurs more frequently in older individuals. By age 70, 38 percent of women experience female pattern hair loss. Typically, the hair loss occurs in the center of the scalp, although the sides can also be affected.

Other types of hair loss include the loss of hair that takes place after certain physical or emotional situations such as stress, surgery, a major illness, rapid weight loss, hormonal abnormalities and poor nutrition.

In these situations the hair loss usually doesn’t appear until two or three months after the onset of the problem. If the physical or emotional situation is corrected the hair frequently returns.

A variety of medications may also cause hair loss. Some of these medications are allopurinol, used to treat gout; catopril that treats high blood pressure; and tegretol used to manage seizures.

A less common cause of female hair loss is alopecia areata in which clumps of hair are lost. At times there can be complete loss of hair. Alopecia areata appears to be due to some type of immunological problem.

Treatment of female pattern baldness includes medications such as minoxidil. Studies have shown that minoxidil used twice a day results in minimal hair growth in 50 percent of the patients and moderate hair growth in 13 percent after eight months of treatment.

An increasing number of women are undergoing hair transplantation for this condition. Hair is taken from the back of the scalp and transplanted to the center of the scalp where the hair is sparse. Hair transplantation can be fairly expensive.

Although sometimes difficult to do, it is important to determine the cause of the hair loss so the most effective treatment can be started.

What is the most effective treatment for preventing hairloss? What can I do? What is my first step?

Hair Loss Immediately After Pregnancy Is Often Considered Abnormal: POSTPARTUM HAIR LOSS IS NORMAL.

Posted by Gary Heron, on December 7th, 2007, under FEMALE HAIR LOSS

Hair loss immediately after childbirth is common and totally normal. Women are concerned for postpartum hair loss and consider it abnormal. Immediate thinning or hair loss convinces them into thinking that they have a fatal disease or illness manifested in the form of hair thinning. 

Studies show postpartum or after pregnancy hair loss is totally normal and a part of regular hair growth life cycle. Your hair grows from hair follicles. Each follicle gives rise to a single hair shaft.

Each hair shaft undergoes a regular life cycle for its development and replacement with a new one. Anagen is the first phase of hair growth cycle in which it grows and takes 2 to 6 years. The longer the anagen phase, the longer the hair you will have.

Catagen is second phase starts just after ending of anagen. Catagen is intermittent or transitional phase lasting 2 to 3 weeks. During this phase, the hair shaft neither grows nor rests.

Telogen Phase is the third and last phase of the hair growth cycle. During this phase old hairs are lost and the hair enters an anagen phase again in order to maintain a normal hair growth cycle. It is this period when you notice hair in your comb and on your brush.

The duration of each phase is influenced by internal and external stimuli. During pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes uncontrolled hormonal fluctuations, irregular periods etc. It is often caused due to the lack of nutrients needed for healthy growth of cells and completion of pregnancy. Folic acid and iron are essential for pregnancy, while most women lack these due to junk foods and an insufficient diet.

Therefore, postpartum hair loss is usually not a result of fatal disease but merely a result of hormonal fluctuations and lack of nutrients.

To counteract postpartum hair loss, herbal hair loss treatments are often used to meet the nutrient requirements of the hair follicles and normalize severe hormonal fluctuations after pregnancy. These treatments are used topically twice or thrice a day for follicular nourishment.
