Hair loss can happen to anyone, no matter if you are a male or a female or a child or an adult. Even if for now your hair seems strong and shiny, it is inevitable that sooner or later you will notice some form of hair thinning, either a natural one or a one resulting from a dermatologic condition. Irrespective of its origin, hair loss can be effectively prevented and minimized if it is already happening - below, we present to you the best ways to do that.
While to many the protective function of the scalp against environmental stressors such as UV radiation is well-known, the role of it as an incubatory environment for the preemergent hair fiber is very often overlooked. As it turns out, excessive accumulation of skin debris which includes dead skin cells, sebum, and other elements may vastly influence the well-being of hair and halt its growth. Moreover, amassed cells and oil on the scalp’s surface may promote the spread of Malassezia furfur, a fungal species that naturally lives on our skin, yet overgrowth of which confirmedly hinders hair growth and weakens the condition of the remaining hair.
To effectively exfoliate skin debris from the top of your head and unblock impeded hair growth, MCCM Medical Cosmetics has formulated a special Hair Peel and Hair Growth solution, both in a convenient form of a spray. First, leave the Hair Peel on your scalp for about 5 minutes to give it a deep, stimulating clean, and follow with a revitalizing Hair Growth Spray. Since together both products rejuvenate and unblock hair follicles, they successfully reduce hair loss and encourage the growth of new, shiny hair.
Once only an antihypertensive agent, minoxidil has turned out to be an excellent hair growth stimulator as well. Nowadays it is widely applicable and commonly used in the treatment of male and female pattern hair loss, telogen effluvium, alopecia areata, and even chemotherapy-induced alopecia. Although its mechanism of action is not completely understood, the studies show that its effects regarding hair growth can indeed be stunning. Minoxidil supposedly stimulates a rapid shift from the telogen phase when the hair is not growing to the anagen phase when hair growth is intense, hence hair loss is efficaciously stopped while the hair in the thinned areas successfully grows back. What is a big plus, the medication can be applied topically, which in turn enables it to act locally with maximized force while the influence on the rest of the body is minimized.
Simultaneously, numerous patients ask the question “How long does minoxidil take to work?”. Many of them expect almost instant effects, while in reality, it takes some time before any results are seen. If you apply Minoxidil continuously every day (it is really important not to take a break!), hair growth should notably increase after approximately 4 months of treatment. Consequently, the full effects should be observed from the 6th month up to a year. Such a treatment period vastly depends on the time needed by the hair follicles to produce new, healthy hair while Minoxidil starts working since its first application.
According to research, another substantial factor that can secretly impede hair growth and cause hair loss is oxidative stress that exerts its detrimental effects on the scalp. As mentioned in the previous paragraphs, an unhealthy scalp equals unhealthy, thinning hair. For this reason, for effective hair renewal you should implement antioxidants as well as other strengthening ingredients into your hair routine.
MCCM Medical Cosmetics Prof Hair Mesococktail’s main active ingredient is Glutathione or a very powerful antioxidant that is also naturally abundant in the body and every second you are reading this article neutralizes free radical damage. Its scalp-stimulating action is only enhanced by a mixture of hair-strengthening substances including Panthenol and Biotin which confirmedly prevent hair thinning and hair loss. Together, the ingredients nourish the hair as well as notably stimulate its renewal. Simultaneously, if you would like to occasionally give your hair a strengthening, revitalizing boost, MCCM Medical Cosmetics Biotin Hidrixin will be a perfect choice. A high concentration of Biotin will reinforce hair structure, making the hair visibly less prone to breakage hence healthier-looking and more voluminous.
