Healthy Hair is a System Approach

Basic-HairGrowthSystem-TRANS

When you are building a solid regimen for healthy hair it is important to understand that the system approach is the best approach. One particular product can give you results but to get maximum results, the system approach is recommended. Let’s explain further.

Think of your favorite meal. Let’s say your favorite food is steak, you don’t usually order a steak alone because the meal will not be complete without your favorite toppings, sauces, salad, a baked potato, and all the extra things that you personally like. Let’s look at makeup. You can just wear one piece of makeup like lipstick or face powder and be ok but to have a complete look, you usually will use other things such as foundation, eyeliner, mascara, ect…. Not to compare proper hair care with food or makeup but we are just using this as a description that where we can commonly relate.

Just like there are layers and degrees to the food you like, the same goes for hair care. Using a system of products will give you the best results especially if you are trying to achieve true healthy hair care.

The question is often presented to NouriTress, “Can I just use one product to make my hair grow back.  Some may ask, “Can the Follicle Therapy  or Edge Repair Follicle Treatment Intensive Night Drops  be used to regrow my edges?” The answer is yes, but to get the most desired results it would be best to invest in the Edge Repair Follicle Treatment Re-growth System that not only addresses the re-growth of the edges but also provides internal support and hair and scalp therapy. This system will build the hair strand first internally with our Hair Vitamins Plus , then next onto a topical scalp treatment in the form of Stimulating Scalp Shampoo and Vitamin Conditioner. Lastly, the Edge Repair Follicle Treatment Intensive Night Drops is designed to reduce scalp inflammation, prevent hair loss naturally and helps stimulate & nourish weak hair follicles that have been damaged due tight and damaging hair styling.

NouriTress Perfect Hair products takes the system approach to healthy hair, because it addresses all of the underlining issues that need to be addressed and not just the one problem that is wanting to be solved.

If you go to the doctor, he/she wouldn’t just write you a prescription for just the recommended medication, they would also recommend other things to do such as diet and exercise. Think of NouriTress as medicine for the hair. A system approach to healthy hair will give you lasting results for healthy hair.

More than a question, it’s a movement!

I’m wearing my own hair are you?

It’s more than just a question on NourTress’ apparel line…but a movement. A movement to start a conversation about hair. More importantly your hair. The Bible speaks about gray hair being a crown of glory in Proverbs 16:31. Speaking on the terms of your hair being a crown, a crown symbolizes honor and royalty. When you think of a queen (which is yourself ) immediately you think of her crown.

So what is the condition of your crown?

The question of “I’m wearing my own hair are you?”  was never meant to offend but to start the conversation,

If you aren’t wearing your own hair why not?

Protective styling when applied correctly can really aid in the growth and protection of the hair by giving it a break from the sometimes strain of daily styling. But when protective styling has been applied incorrectly the steps can be damaging and unfortunately sometimes irreversible.

The foundation of NouriTress was set with the meaning of the name of NouriTress-   Nourish your Tresses.

Watch The NouriTress Story here.

NouriTress was crafted to cater to the health, retention, and growth of the hair so when there are so many cases of thinning, improper installations that led to hair loss, improper product application that may over time caused the hair-line to be removed, and the list goes on NouriTress had to speak up.

More than just a question “I’m wearing my own hair are you?” but a movement to invoke change. To provide education and products to combat the issues. To start a conversation to raise awareness to the ever-present issues that are impacting our community. To be a voice and a platform of health and wellness that is catered to the nourishing the tresses of our community.

It’s more than just the question “I’m wearing my own hair are you?”. 

It’s a question to impact change… this time for the better.

Vitamin A (beta-carotene)

plusvitamins_withbox.jpg

Using vitamins as part of a natural approach to treating hair loss can be a healthier method to use as long as you are informed about what you are using.

In large doses, even many types of vitamins or natural supplements can be harmful or even fatal.

However if used correctly, methods using vitamin A for hair loss treatments may be healthier than those containing chemicals. These chemicals may lead to side effects. Being informed of more natural options is a way to avoid taking treatments with chemicals.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A describes a group of five similar compounds. The most popular members of the vitamin group are retinol and beta carotene. Others are carotenoid compounds.

Vitamin A occurs as retinol in animals. Actually, it is found as its ester, retinol palmitate.

It is a yellow, fat-soluble compound which is converted to retinol in the intestine before storage. The stored retinol is then converted to retinal, a compound that absorbs light and is essential in the eyes for color vision and seeing in low light.

The other Vitamin A compounds including beta carotene, alpha carotene, gamma carotene and beta cryptoxanthin are derived from plants. They are converted to retinal in omnivores and herbivores but not in carnivores.

Retinol is the most potent form of Vitamin A, therefore, plants are not recommended to serve as the sole source of the vitamin.

In fact, Vitamin A supplements and foods fortified in Vitamin A provide more of the vitamin than most plant-based sources.

The recommended daily intake values of Vitamin A vary with age. Children need between 300 and 500 micrograms per day while adolescents and adults should take between 600 and 900 micrograms of the vitamin per day.

Pregnant mothers are advised to take 770 micrograms per day and breastfeeding mothers should ingest 1300 micrograms of Vitamin A daily.

Vitamin A is essential to quite a number of biochemical processes in the body. It is known to be central to vision through its interaction with the rods and cones of the eyes.

The vitamin is also known to the important to gene transcription and expression, a healthy immune system, development of human embryos and production of red blood cells.

Vitamin A also contributes to skin health and has antioxidant properties.

Vitamin A can be found abundantly in the following food sources: animal livers, butter, carrot, spinach, broccoli, cheese, mango, milk and egg.

There are two kinds of Vitamin A deficiency: primary and secondary. In primary Vitamin A deficiency, the individual does not ingest the recommended daily amount of the vitamin either from plant or animal sources.

Secondary deficiency occurs when certain factors including zinc deficiency, smoking and alcoholism affect the optimal absorption of the vitamin from the intestine.

Both forms of Vitamin A deficiency produce the same outcomes.

Signs of deficiency in the vitamin include impaired vision, night blindness, dryness of the mucosal membranes of the eyes, respiratory tract, and urinary bladder leading to conjunctivitis, total blindness, respiratory and urinary complications.

Vitamin A deficiency also produces an impaired immune system and the formation of white lumps in hair follicles. This later sign quickly leads to hair loss.

On the other hand, too much supplementation of Vitamin A can lead to toxicity. Since Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin, it is not as easy to eliminate from the body as the water-soluble vitamins.

Acute toxicity is seen when the level of Vitamin A in the body reaches 25,000 IU per kg. This can be reached by consuming about 4,000 IU of the vitamin every day for at least 6 months. This toxicity can lead to renal failure and liver damages.

Signs of Vitamin A toxicity include nausea, anorexia, vomiting, irritability, blurry vision, headaches, body pains, lethargy and hair loss.

Just as for its deficiency, Vitamin A toxicity shares certain common signs such as dryness of the mucous membranes, poor skin health and hair loss.

Therefore, supplementation with the vitamin for the treatment of alopecia should be carefully monitored, and high doses should not be taken for long-term therapies.

Relative Vitamin A Activity
Retinol – 1
Dietary Beta Carotene – 1/12 of Retinol
Beta Carotene in oil – 1/2 of Retinol
Dietary Gamma Carotene – 1/24 of Retinol
Dietary Alpha Carotene – 1/24 of Retinol
Dietary Beta Cryptoxanthin – 1/24 of Retinol

Vitamin A and Hair Loss

The antioxidant properties of Vitamin A are especially useful for the protection of hair follicle cells. Circulating free radicals damage cells easily and accelerate the process of aging.

Vitamin A can mop up these reactive radicals and prevent them from damaging the cells of the hair follicles.

Similarly, Vitamin A supplementation prevents dryness of the scalp and wilting of the hair pores. This also contributes to the prevention of hair loss because a well-oiled skin signifies a well-nourished skin. In this way, hair shafts are healthier and the hair appears lush and full.

Since Vitamin A supplementation requires a fine balance in order not to worsen hair loss, the recommended dosage of the vitamin in the treatment of alopecia is usually between 5,000 and 25,000 IU per day.

Some Key Points to Consider

Before deciding on what hair loss vitamins, herbs or other supplements you want to add to your daily regimen to try to prevent and reverse hair loss, you should know what exactly you are taking and what it can do.

  • Vitamin A is good for overall health, especially hair and nails. This can be taken alone or as part of a multivitamin.
  • Users should also be aware, however, that too much Vitamin A can actually result in the loss of hair. It is important when using a vitamin A hair loss method to have a healthy balance of this vitamin.
  • It is a good idea to have a good, healthy natural balance of vitamins and nutrients either through your diet or by using supplements. This can help the body to be balanced and enable it to correct imbalances naturally.

The 3 Benefits of Vitamin A for Hair

Many who use vitamin A for hair loss see results and there are other benefits like healthier skin, as well.

  • Vitamin A is a key player in stimulating healthy growth in hair, skin and nails, and in fact, helps regulate certain aspects of the hair follicle. This in turn helps grow stronger, healthier hair as well as retain the hair already present.
  • Vitamin A is an anti-oxidant and anti-oxidants are known for their ability to promote healthy blood circulation. Healthy circulation improves the hair follicles ability to function which is crucial to avoiding hair loss.
  • Vitamin A can be taken as an oral supplement or used in a topical oil approach. Applying a vitamin A solution to the scalp can aid in improving the health of the scalp and hair follicles.

The Bottom Line

As you know Vitamin A, in addition to other vitamins such as Vitamin B, Vitamin C are beneficial to promoting overall better health which can help the body to work to prevent hair loss and encourage growth.

Vitamin A however is a vitamin that focuses more closely on the condition of hair and nails. A body which is balanced has a steady supply of the vitamins and nutrients that help it function properly, including the scalp and hair follicles.

Vitamin A is also crucial to the body as an anti-oxidant.

The body needs anti-oxidants to have improved circulation function. Studies have shown healthy circulation is vital towards being able to prevent hair loss and eventually see hair regrowth.

Circulation is what enables the scalp to be healthy. Not to mention this also aids in causing the hair follicles to be healthier which means less lost hair and improved hair growth. (http://www.progressivehealth.com/hair-loss-vitamin-a.htm)
