HAIR THINNING & EXCESSIVE FALL-OUT
Hair thinning is becoming increasingly common in both men and women. It can be caused by a number of factors, including genetics, stress and ageing. Hair thinning is only noticeable once around a third of your hair is already lost, so it is crucial to take preventative action before the problem worsens.
DANDRUFF, DERMATITUS & ITCHY SCALP CONDITIONS
It has been estimated that one in five Australians suffers from dandruff, and even more have allergies or conditions such as dermatitis that leave them with itchy, irritated or oily scalps.
HARMFUL HAIR PRODUCTS
Many shampoos, conditioners, hair products and colouring treatments contain harsh chemicals that can damage, irritate or dry out your hair or scalp.
HAIR LOSS CAUSED BY EXTENSIONS
Hair extensions can cause a type of hair loss known as traction alopecia, which occurs when the weight of extensions pulls out the roots of your natural hair.
STRESS & THE SIDE EFFECTS OF MEDICATION
Physical or emotional stress can sap the nutrients that hair needs to grow. Hair loss is also a side effect of numerous common medications, including the contraceptive pill, painkillers and antidepressants.
HORMONAL CHANGES & IMBALANCES
Hormonal imbalances from illness, childbirth, menopause and andropause can affect the body's intemal balance and trigger hair loss.
Healthy hair is easy when we're young - but, like bone and muscular growth, hair reaches its peak at around age 20. As we age, everyday factors like stress, exposure to harsh chemicals and hormonal changes take their toll and can lead hair damage and loss.
ILLNESS & DISEASE
Many illnesses can cause hair thinning or loss. Common aliments include alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease that leaves bald patches in both men and women the size and shape of coins.
