Put An End To Hair Fall Woes With These Targeted Remedies

If you’re here, it’s probably because you’ve been in search of solutions to your hair fall problems but can’t pin down what’s causing it. Here’s a quick guide through some of the top hair thinning concerns and what you can do about them.

Hair fall

What is hair fall?

Daily hair fall is a natural occurrence. Every day we shed about  50 to 100 strands, and this shedding is part of a hair growth cycle. Still, the sense of panic seeing clumps of hair around the drain is understandable. But rest assured that this is normal, even necessary for the proper and healthy growth of our new hair. But if you're seeing abnormal causes of hair growth, it may be signs that something is up. Common causes of atypical hair fall are:

  • Hormonal changes (puberty, pregnancy, menopause)
  • Side effects of medication
  • Stress
  • Changes in weather also known as seasonal hair fall
  • Mechanical Agressions like excessive styling
  • Harsh hair care products

Since the hair cycle is inevitable, consider solutions geared toward scalp care. Hair is most elastic after a shower, making it prone to breakage and hair fall, so choosing products that are mild enough for the scalp but also energizes it for regrowth is key. Increasing blood circulation along the scalp can help hasten regrowth.

For this, try the Davines Naturaltech Goodbye Hairfall Set (P3,100). This set includes the best-selling Davines Energizing Shampoo which is specifically formulated for fragile, and thinning hair and has caffeine that stimulates cellular metabolism. Prevent hair loss with Davines Energizing Gel, as it contains anti-oxidants to strengthen and invigorate the scalp.

What is hair loss?

Hair loss, unlike hair fall, is a bit more tricky. Hair loss is a gradual thinning and loosening of hair bulb in patches. Hair loss typically refers to excessive hair fall and is mostly described as visible baldness in certain areas of the scalp. Male and female pattern baldness, also known as Androgenetic alopecia, is understood to be hereditary.  It sounds terrifying we know, but science has come along way in resolving this. As with all our articles, we encourage you to consult with your doctor before selecting any course of action. So what could be causing it?

  • Genetics
  • Age
  • Hormones
  • Underlying Illness
  • Side Effects of Medication
  • Physical and emotional shock and severe stress
Hair Loss Treatments

Finding the right treatment takes time. It could take as short as 90 days to see the effects and more than that to experience improvements. For hair loss, consider Kérastase's Specifique Cure Line, clinically proven to reduce the rate of hair loss. Its active ingredient Arginine provides nutrition to the hair bulb (the base of the hair follicle) to reduce the rate of hair loss.

In the interim, consider nutrient-rich hair care products like AVEDA Invati Advanced. This exceptional line is not only effective but also aligns with eco-conscious values as it boasts a vegan formulation and naturally derived ingredients.

AVEDA Invati Advanced is dedicated to providing you with thicker, fuller-looking hair. Its vegan-friendly formulation harnesses the power of nature to invigorate your locks. For best results, AVEDA Invati Advanced™ System (P10,100) is recommended for those experiencing hair loss due to breakage from scalp-pulling hairstyles, aging or post-pregnancy.

If it’s due to hormonal changes, try Davines' Energizing Superactive, a professional product formulated to address hormone-related hair fall, such as androgenetic alopecia or male hair loss and sebum hyper-production.

Hair Density

What is hair density?
Low Hair Density

Hair density refers to the total number of individual strands packed together on the scalp. On average we have about 2200 strands of hair per square inch. There are three types of densities, thin (low), medium dense and dense. To determine this, get a mirror and look at your scalp through your hair. If you can see your scalp clearly or partially, it means you have low or medium density respectively.

So what could be causing it?

  • Heat styling
  • Unhealthy scalp microbial ecology
  • Strand breakage
  • Dry scalp or excessive scalp sebum (oily scalp)
  • Genetics
Hair Density Treatments

Ultimately, to increase density you would need to encourage a healthier scalp environment for your hair, and the help of a clinically-tested hair grower. We suggest the Kérastase Densifique line to improve hair density and thickness using Stemoxidine with 2/3 of users feeling their hair become thicker (based on self-evaluation by 122 users over a period of 30 days).

Similarly, you can also try the L'Oréal Professionnel Serioxyl Denser Serum (P2,999)L'Oréal Professionnel Serioxyl Advanced Denser Hair Serum 90ml - HairMNL

L'Oréal Professionnel's Serioxyl Advanced by Serie Expert improves hair density and thickness using Stemoxydine patented technology aimed to re-densify and stimulates hair bulb activity that protects against oxidative stress on the scalp.

Hair Thickness

What is hair thickness?
Thick hair strands

When volume is concerned, strand thickness is what we look at. No matter how high you pile up your hair, if your stands are thin, they will be wispy. Unlike density which measures how many strands you have on your head, thickness only refers to the diameter of each individual strand. Fine hair, therefore, is how small the diameter of each strand has become, and it’s not always influenced by genetics. So what could be causing it?

  • Chemical and color damage
  • Lack of moisture
  • Brittle and prone to breakage
  • Pulling caused by over-styling and hair extensions
Thickness Treatment
To target thickness at the roots, we suggest the NIOXIN Diaboost Xtrafusion Treatment which contains HTX Complex, a fusion of Niacinamide, Panthenol, and Caffeine - all ingredients with notable benefits in skin care - to deliver fuller and thicker hair.

Similarly, Davines Energizing Thickening Tonic and Energizing Shampoo combined can also increase the diameter and thickness of the hair fiber over time. Plus it leaves the hair shiny and full-bodied without weighed down. The Davines Energizing line is that it's paraben-free, which makes it safe for pregnant and lactating women.
