Hair Loss In The African American Community, Is It An Epidemic?

Image

Studies show that over 30 million women in the country are experiencing hair loss, with 70% of that 30 million being African American Women. You may wonder what is going on, why is this happening? There are several causes of hair loss and hair thinning, but one of the biggest causes in the African American community is mechanical damage. What is mechanical damage? Many black women and some black men braid their hair or wear hair weaves, and under normal conditions these cause no problems. However if the weave is attached too tight or the braids are wrapped too tight, they put a constant strain on the hair follicle. If this is done for an extended period of time permanent hair loss can result. This is known as traction alopecia and is fairly common among people who braid or weave their hair. You should always make sure the person applying the braids or weave is qualified to do so and don’t wear braids or weave continuously for extended periods of time.

Many people change the appearance of their hair by using chemical treatments like hair color, tints, bleaches, straighteners, relaxers and permanent waves. If correctly done and done using reputable products, its rare to have any damage. However, hair can become weak and break if any of these chemicals are done too often. Hair can break if the solution is left on too long, if two procedures are done on the same day, or if bleach is applied to previously bleached hair. Some chemical relaxers do contain powerful chemicals and there have been instances of people getting chemical burns from these products resulting in permanent hair loss. Only go to qualified hairstylist and if doing it yourself make sure you only use reputable products and follow the product directions.

There are other factors that can cause hair loss but we wanted to focus on mechanical damage because so many African American women are wearing hair weaves and braids now and hair loss is becoming an epidemic in the African American community.

NouriTress Perfect Hair Products was developed to address these issues and we have been helping women grow and wear their own hair since 1998 with over 4,000,000,000 vitamins sold worldwide. Our Follicle Therapy which is pictured above invigorates the root to promote hair growth as well as unblock clogged hair follicles that cause hair loss and it is great for all types of hair!

Men And Hair Thinning

Men'sPromo

 

What is male pattern balding?

     The male pattern baldness (MPB) form of androgenetic alopecia (there is also a female pattern baldness) accounts for more than 95% of hair loss in men. By age 35, two-thirds of American men will have some degree of appreciable hair loss and by age 50 approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair. About 25% of men who suffer from male pattern baldness begin the painful process before they reach 21.  Contrary to societal belief, most men who suffer from male pattern baldness are extremely unhappy with their situation and would do anything to change it. Hair loss affects every aspect of their life. It affects interpersonal relationships as well as their professional life. It is not uncommon for men to change their career paths because of hair loss. (http://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/hair-loss/hair-loss-introduction-mens%5B/embed%5D)

     Most men start to notice hair thinning early on, but they ignore it as if it will magically grow back and that’s definitely not the case. Male pattern balding can be prevented even if it is hereditary, if it is treated when it is first noticed. The hair that is lost in most cases may not grow back but hair loss overall can be halted. NouriTress ER day and night drops contain procapil which is a naturally clinical proven ingredient that prevents and reverses hair thinning and loss of hair. They also contain tricogen which is a complex that solves male pattern baldness very fast, it stimulates natural hair growth and it is a DHT blocker. DayandNight-Drops

DHT which is short for dihydrotestosterone is a male sex hormone, an androgen. 5α-reductase, an enzyme, synthesizes DHT in the adrenal glands, hair follicles, testes and prostate.  DHT is the primary contributing factor in male pattern baldness. However, female hair loss is more complex, and DHT is only one of several possible causes. Women with increased levels of DHT may develop certain androgynous male secondary sex characteristics, including a deepened voice and facial hair. DHT plays a role in the development and exacerbation of benign prostatic hyperplasia, as well as prostate cancer, by enlarging the prostate gland. Prostate growth and differentiation are highly dependent on sex steroid hormones, particularly DHT.

NouriTress Perfect Hair Vitamins Plus For Men have natural key ingredients such as:

—Saw Palmetto an anti-androgen that blocks DHT and restore the hair.

—BiotinImportant for hair health

—B-Vitamins (B6, B5,B3)Important for health and growth of the hair.

—InositolVital for Hair Growth!

—ZincStimulates Hair Growth by enhancing the body’s immune system.

—Folic AcidHelps maintain healthy hair and skin.

NouriTress Perfect Hair Follicle Therapy used along with the vitamins will also help stop and fight against hair loss in men. Follicle_Therapy

Some of the benefits are:

—Helps Stimulate Growth

Pygeum Africanum And Hair Loss

Pygeum-Africum-For-Hair-Loss

What is Pygeum?

The African cherry tree, pygeum africanum, is an evergreen found at higher elevations across Africa and it’s been used for medicinal purposes since the 1700s. When used in combination with Saw Palmetto, this duo has been shown to drastically reduce levels of DHT which is a major cause of hair loss.

The extract from Pygeum bark is used in herbal medications to relieve symptoms caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or prostate enlargement. Although the mechanism of its action is unknown, it is assumed that Pygeum could inhibit the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is the main cause of BPH and is also believed to be the primary factor responsible for male and female pattern baldness. In one clinical study, the effects of Pygeum africanum on BPH were examined in conjunction with nettle root extract (another DHT blocking agent) and it was concluded that combining these two herbs increased their effectiveness.

Pygeum bark has been used in herbal medicine in Europe since the 1700s. Traditionally, the bark of the tree was gathered and powdered and made into a tea which was taken for genito-urinary complaints. Pygeum has also shown promise in preventing or reducing the symptoms of prostate cancer and chronic prostatis.

Some additional traditional uses of Pygeum include use as an aphrodisiac, and as a remedy for fever, impotence, kidney disease, malaria, partial bladder outlet obstruction, urinary tract infections, inflammation, malaria, prostatic adenoma, and psychosis.

One of the key active compounds in Pygeum, oleanolic acid, may also stimulate an immune response that can prevent development of malignancy in those with benign prostate enlargement. (http://wwwsupremehealth.com/hair-loss-treatments/pygeum-africanum-and-hair-loss/)

What is DHT?

DHT, which stands for Dihydrotestosterone, is a male sex hormone that increases in our bodies as we age. As DHT levels rise in the blood they effect the most important part of the hair follicle, the dermal papilla, which is responsible for the hair’s growth. The dermal papilla is fed by the skin’s blood capillaries, getting all of its essential nutrients for proper hair growth. DHT binds to receptors on the dermal papilla, blocking proper blood flow and starving the hair, ruining it’s overall integrity and even resulting in hair loss. Scientists have concluded that by lowering DHT in our bloodstreams we can fight hair loss from the inside out. (http://beautysupply.about.com/od/hairtreatments/fl/Block-DHT-Stop-Hair-Loss.htm)

The American Hair Loss Association, the only national, nonprofit 501(c)3 charity devoted to hair loss, states that when DHT is suppressed, hair follicles will continue to produce healthy hair. In the book, “Nutrition for Healthy Skin: Strategies for Clinical and Cosmetic Practice,” Jean Krutmann, professor of dermatology and environmental medicine at the Heinrich-Heine-University in Dusseldorf, Germany, states that pygeum is believed to inhibit 5-alpha-reductase, which will limit the production of DHT. This gives some credence to the idea that pygeum may help with hair loss, it is often contained in herbal hair loss treatments. (http://www.livestrong.com/article/546657-pygeum-and-hair-loss/)

Ingesting these DHT blockers won’t cure hair loss overnight, but there’s more and more evidence every day about just how effective this type of oral treatment can be. Along with any vitamin therapy, the trick is to keep taking your supplements. Consistency is key. Along with taking DHT blockers, there are many other supplements that can feed and support healthy hair. Biotin, Vitamin B12, Niacin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin D, Vitamin A, Zinc, MSM and Iron can all be added to help thicken the hair, and even make it grow faster.(http://beautysupply.about.com/od/hairtreatments/fl/Block-DHT-Stop-Hair-Loss.htm) NouriTress Hair Vitamins Plus has these natural DHT blockers as well as the vitamins listed and taking them on a regular basis will help you grow longer thicker hair! http://www.nouritress.com

Hair Thinning and Hair Loss….What Causes it?

iStock_000016136531Small

Hair Is Like A Plant

     The best way to think of the way hair grows is to picture a garden. How well it grows is completely a result of what is happening underground. “Like a garden,a normal hair cycle should lead to a product, which is the hair,” says Wendy Roberts, MD, a dermatologist at a private practice in Rancho Mirage, Calif. “Growth cycles are important because when they go awry, that is one of the reasons we have hair loss.”And things that interfere with the cycle — like medication, illness, infection, or chemicals — have the potential to stop hair from being formed properly. “It’s a very dynamic place and anything that can get the cycle off can cause hair loss,” Roberts says. Although hair loss may seem like a more prominent problem in men, women are nearly as likely to lose, or have thinning, hair. Most women notice it in their 50s or 60s, but it can happen at any age and for a variety of reasons. (http://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/hair-loss/features/women-hair-loss-causes)

Understanding Hair Loss

     Studies show that over 30 million women in the country are experiencing hair loss, with 70% of that 30 million being African American Women.  You may wonder what is going on, why this is happening but to understand this epidemic you must first understand the theory behind hair!

Hair grows in three different cycles: anagen, catagen, and telogen. About 90% of the hair on the head is in the anagen, or growth phase, which lasts anywhere from two to eight years. The catagen, or transition phase, typically lasts 2-3 weeks, during which  the hair follicle shrinks. During the telogen cycle, which lasts around two to four months, the hair rests.

An overwhelming majority of the time the hair is on the scalp, it is growing. Only about 10% of the strands are in transition or resting at any one time. Hair grows about 6 inches a year for most people.

Most people lose anywhere from 50 to 100 strands of hair each day, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. On the days when hair is shampooed, people can lose up to 250 strands, Roberts said. But don’t avoid shampooing in an attempt to keep the hair, as it will fall out eventually, anyway.

For those who don’t plan on counting their hair every day, there are ways to know when hair is thinning or being lost at a higher rate. Roberts says that women will see a difference. When waking up in the morning, there may be an usually large amount on your pillow. When you comb your hair (especially without tugging, which can pull the hair out), more than normal will be left in the comb.

There are also other visual cues that women can look for over time. Although men’s hair tends to recede from the forehead or the crown of the head, women tend to notice thinning on the top third to one half of the scalp. Sometimes their frontal line stays intact, says Nicole Rogers, MD, of  Old Metairie Dermatology in Metairie, La. Women may see a part that is gradually becoming wider or see more of their scalp than normal when their hair is pulled back.

When a patient comes in with concerns about hair loss, there is a combination of ways to make a diagnosis, Rogers says. Preliminary blood work is usually taken to make sure the thyroid gland or an autoimmune disease isn’t the culprit.

Another way to diagnose what the problem is just by looking and listening, Rogers says. She asks what a patient’s mother, aunts, or grandmothers look like – if they have similar, or greater amounts, of hair loss. Using magnification on the scalp can show if a woman’s follicles vary in size – with some thick and others thin. These are two telltale signs of female pattern hair loss, also called androgenetic alopecia.

This is a hereditary condition that affects about 30 million American women, according to the America Academy of Dermatology,  and is the most common kind of hair loss Rogers sees in her practice. She tells WebMD that it happens to about 50% of women. Although it mostly occurs in the late 50s or 60s, it can happen at any time, even during teenage years, Rogers says.

Typically, each time a normal hair follicle is shed, it is replaced by hair that is equal in size. But in women with female-pattern hair loss, the new hair is finer and thinner – a more miniaturized version of itself, Rogers says. The hair follicles are shrinking and eventually they quit growing altogether.

If hair follicles are uniform in size, or if the hair loss is sudden, it is likely to be caused by something other than heredity, like a medical condition, Rogers says.

There are a wide range of conditions that can bring on hair loss, with some of the most common being pregnancy, thyroid disorders, and anemia. Others include autoimmune diseases, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and skin conditions such as psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis, Rogers says.

Though there has been a link between menopause and hair loss, Roberts says she doesn’t think there is a direct correlation. It could be that menopause and hair loss just occur at the same age.

Other reasons for hair loss include extreme stress; physical trauma like surgery or intense illness; dramatic weight loss over a short period of time; and taking too much Vitamin A, Roberts says. And hair loss can occur a couple of weeks to six months after any of these experiences.

“Someone can have surgery and be just fine and then two weeks later their hair starts falling out,” Roberts says. “It can be very scary when it starts falling out in big clumps.”

One other way to thin hair is self-inflicted – hairstyles like cornrows or too-tight braids can cause hair loss called traction alopecia.

All of the things women do to manipulate their hair — dyes, chemical treatments, bad brushes, blow dryers, and flat irons — can result in damage and breakage, Roberts says. This includes brushing too much and towel drying aggressively when the hair is wet.

Luckily, for most of these issues, the hair grows back or the loss can be reversed with medical treatments. But it is important to see a dermatologist if there seems to be something wrong, because the sooner treatment is started, the better the chances are for improving your growing season.

What Is Inositol?

Inositol is a vitamin-like substance. It is found in many plants and animals. It can also be made in a laboratory. Inositol is used for diabetic nerve pain, panic disorder, high cholesterol, insomnia, cancer, depression, schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, promoting HAIR GROWTH, a skin disorder called psoriasis, and treating side effects of medical treatment with lithium. Inositol is also used by mouth for treating conditions associated with polycystic ovary syndrome, including failure to ovulate; high blood pressure; high triglycerides; and high levels of testosterone.

Possible Mechanisms of Inositol’s Effectiveness in Hair Loss Treatment

It can be argued that inositol’s success in addressing hyperandrogenism is an indication of its usefulness in treating hair loss, and an evidence to corroborate the positive reports of people who have used in this way. Hair loss is known to be especially encouraged by high levels of circulating androgens. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) synthesized from testosterone is one of the androgens known to trigger the dickkopf-1 gene to produce the protein DKK-1 which is known to cause papilla cell death. Papilla cells are the cells responsible for the nourishment of hair follicles. With increased DKK-1 concentration, hair growth slows down and hair loss accelerates.

Therefore, since inositol addresses hyperandrogenism, it follows that it will reduce the body level of androgens, reduce the expression of dickkopf-1 gene and lower the activity of the DKK-1 protein. This chain of events will provide the positive outcome of increased hair growth. Still another possible way inositol reverses hair loss is through its combination with choline. Inositol is often combined with choline bitarate in hair loss remedies. When both compounds are combined, they form phospholipids. Phospholipids are known to be crucial to the development of healthy hair follicles. Inositol’s prospects as an effective hair loss treatment are especially good when you consider that these two pathways demonstrate that it can treat hair loss from the two crucial points: increased growth rate of new hair and the strengthening of hair strands as they grow.

The Physical Benefits of Inositol

There are many things that inositol can do for our bodies, including to promote healthy hair growth. It keeps estrogen levels properly balanced, and it can help in the prevention of breast cancer by preventing breast lumps from forming. A combination of inositol and choline produces lecithin, which is necessary in the prevention of high cholesterol. Inositol has been proven effective when given to premature babies, and has been shown to reduce death and disability in premature infants. There are compounds in inositol that have qualities that are necessary for the prevention and treatment of certain cancers. Inositol can even be used to treat constipation. It has a stimulating effect, which allows for ease of bowel movements. Inositol is good for the nervous system, and is being studied for treating depression, panic attacks, Alzheimer’s disease and other nervous conditions.

Green Tea And Hair Loss

ImagePerfect Hair Vitamins PLUS contains the ingredient Green Tea! Green Tea, a natural herb has several benefits that helps hair loss & hair growth. Benefits of green tea include the effect of reversing the hair menace as it contains antioxidants. Also, it contains few stimulating effects which are classified as alkaloids. This group of alkaloids contain theobromine, theophylline and caffeine.

Green Tea Stimulates Hair Growth

 As per hair experts, a component called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) present in green tea helps in preventing hair loss effectively. This amazing antioxidant has been proven to be a potential hair growth stimulant.

EGCG inhibits the production of Tumor Necrosis Factors (TNF), a molecule which has been identified to cause hair loss. Also, this molecule plays an active role in causing cancer and arthritis. Hence, drinking green tea will not only ensure prevention of hair loss and stimulation of hair growth, but also provide you protection from various other health conditions. 

Using Green Tea to Control Hair loss?

  • Green tea has recently become a popular drink in the world for its innumerable health and skincare benefits. Unlike in the past when many people did not know the benefits of green tea that control hair loss. Green tea has six benefiting compounds that keep hair problems at bay. It also controls free radicals in the body that damages cell. The main ingredient in green tea is antioxidants, this is the main reason why it is considered healthy for the body as well as skin and hair.

 

  • Thinning of hair, and loss of unnatural amounts of hair is more common in women. It’s due to the hormonal changes they experience. It’s present in men, too. They call it male pattern baldness, and you can address your hair loss issues with the help of green tea.
  • Green tea contains high amount of antioxidants. It’s believed that the catechins found in green tea have 5-alpha-reductase inhibiting properties. This means that DHT (dihydro testosterone – the substance that causes hair loss in men and women) could be repressed and ultimately hair loss could be avoided. But later on it was discovered that the anti-inflammatory properties in green tea help to stop hair loss and even promote the growth of new hair.
  • Drinking a cup of green tea daily over a prolonged period of time will help lower the hair fall rate and help its regrowth. However, there are also green tea supplements which provide same benefit.
  • Acts as an anti-inflammatory which helps with hair growth
  •  Helps release stress which causes hair loss
  • Strengthens roots & activates the hair follicles for hair re-growth.
  • Helps destroy the bacterial and fungal parasites in the scalp!
