Why Hair Loss Happens & How to Regrow Hair Naturally

Nobody likes losing their hair, but most of us will experience some degree of hair loss during the course of our lives. Here is your basic guide to hair loss, diagnostic criteria and treatment options.

The three most common reasons you lose your hair are stress, hormone imbalances (particularly testosterone & thyroid hormones and chronic inflammation). When our bodies are under stress or low on calories, protein, or nutrients our hair folicles stay in the resting, rather than growing phases.
Hair may fall out while washing or brushing or even fall out with no encouragement at all. This disorder is called Telogen effluvium and the good news is that you can regrow your hair without drugs. Read below to find out how.

Stress & Hair Loss

Stress, exhaustion, anxiety and depression are a huge component of hair loss. Constantly high cortisol, your body’s stress hormones, causes a drop in hyaluronic acid and proteoglycan synthesis. These two compounds protect your hair follicles and help them grow; when they’re depleted, your hair begins falling out and it doesn’t grow back.

Thyroid Hormones

A thyroid imbalance is a common issue. Your thyroid hormones bind directly to receptors in the base of your hair follicles. Thyroid hormones regulate hair stem cells too, meaning they can start and stop new hair growth.

Hormone Imbalances can cause Hair Loss

Testosterone also drive hair loss. Enzymes in your hair follicles convert testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), and high DHT in your hair follicles cause them to fall out. We recommend using a treatment for the hair bulb, try INSIGHT LOSS CONTROL Fortifying Treatment to help stimulate the microcirculation to fortify the hair fibres, to prevent hair loss.

Postpartum hair loss commonly starts at around three months after birth. The hair loss can seem more extreme if your hair grew much more than normal during pregnancy, or if you have long hair. Most women all return to their usual hair growth cycle within 12 months by eating foods that are high in Vitamin D & Vitamin C and with the help of organic hair products.

Chronic Inflammation can cause Hair Loss

A large percentage of people who seek hair loss treatment have signs of chronic inflammation, and by stopping the inflammation often reverses hair loss.

How to Regrow Hair without drugs

Avoid drugs that can regrow hair, instead you’re better of addressing the underlying cause of hair loss and treat it naturally.

1.) Manage stress, by trying to calm your nervous system. Try simple natural meditation techniques to promote high level health and wellness, get more sleep & exercise.

2.) Balance your thyroid hormones, by easing stress to help hormones stay in balance. Eat well and have a nutritional diet which emphasises healthy fats.

3.) Decrease inflammation with nutrients of colourful rich veggies and avoid sugar and simple carbs.

4.) Prepare the skin for the subsequent treatments with two functions: skin renewal and purifying action. We recommend using INSIGHT REBALANCING Scalp Exfoliating Cream, which aims to clear the scalp from dead cells, residues of technical products and impurities, reactivating the microcirculation and prepares the skin for treatment. If you suspect to have dandruff, we also recommend treating your hair with INSIGHT ANTI DANDRUFF Purifying Treatment, to counteract the dandruff and soothe the scalp irritations to prepare the scalp for further treatments.

5.) Introduce a healthy daily routine, starting with organic hair care products, try INSIGHT LOSS CONTROL Shampoo & Fortifying Treatment packed with organic extracts, including horse chestnut to help strengthen and condition the hair growth, specially formulated for people with weak hair, suffering from hair loss & thinning hair.
