Understanding Hair Loss & Hair Loss
To understand hair loss treatments, you should first understand
hair loss itself. There are many causes of hair loss (see common
causes of hair loss). The primary cause is both male pattern
baldness and female pattern baldness, affecting almost 50% of adult
males and 25% of adult women. This cause of hair loss is directly
related to changes in your hair's nutrition, levels of DHT and
proper scalp hygiene.
The basics of hair
The scalp is composed of 3 basic layers of skin: the epidermis,
the dermis, and the subcutaneous layer. Within these 3 layers there
are blood vessels, nerves, muscles, glands, and hair (or keratin).
Hair is supported by blood flow, which in turn requires oxygen and
nutrients to promote cellular activity and new growth. As hair grows
in the follicle, it is lubricated by the sebaceous gland that
secretes oil in the follicle, coating the hair for smooth growth and
creating healthy luster and sheen.
Good nutrition is vital for healthy hair, requiring that blood and
nutrients reach the papilla area. When fewer nutrients reach the
papilla hair cells reproduce at a much slower rate. Slower cellular
activity produces thin, poor quality hair.
The basics of hair loss
DHT, or Dihydrotestosterone, causes 95% of all hair loss. DHT
miniaturizes hair follicles by shortening the anagen (growth) phase
and/or lengthening the telogen (resting) phase. This causes the hair
follicles to slowly shrink and die, especially if DHT is involved.
The net result is an increased number of short, thin, fine hairs
barely visible above the scalp. For healthy hair growth, DHT
blocking is needed once increased hair loss occurs. The interaction
of DHT with androgen receptors in scalp skin and follicles appears
to cause male and female pattern baldness.
The sebaceous oil building up causes sebum. Sebum collects in the
hair follicle and hardens, causing a sebum plug that hinders hair
growth. This compounded with existing weak hairs causes increased
reduction in hair growth.
The good news is, even with thinning, fine hairs, there is still
life in the follicle and it can be repaired with a proven HLCC
regimen of proper hair nutrition, DHT blocking and good scalp
