Did you know your hair grows in cycles? Knowing how this cycle works is a good step in addressing hair loss and promoting healthy hair growth.
Your hair grows in cycles
Your hair growth cycle has three main phases, and takes several years to complete. It is a normal part of your hair growth cycle, to shed 50-100 scalp hairs every day. But what happens when you are losing more than normal?
So let’s take a closer look at the hair growth cycle
Nourish your hair
You naturally lose hair during the ‘resting phase’ (Telogen). Problems occur and Hair loss becomes visible when there are too many resting hair follicles. The longer they remain resting, the greater the chance of permanent hair loss.
In many cases of alopecia (hair loss) up to 100% of the hair follicles are in this resting phase. Resting follicles are awaiting regeneration, which can occur by nourishing the follicles.
Regenerating resting hair follicles could be the answer
You can help to regenerate hair follicles in the resting phase and promote healthy hair growth by replenishing your Kidney and Liver energy, and nourishing the Blood. According to Chinese medicine, hair health depends on proper functioning of the Kidney and Liver organ-meridian systems.
The Chinese herbal extract Phytofol, is believed to work by regenerating hair follicles in the resting phase, activating the growth phase of the hair growth cycle. This increases the number of normal, healthy hair follicles in the growing phase.
Specific Chinese herbs can help restore hair growth, texture, colour and shine; and are suitable for all hair types and colours in men, women and children. Also consider boosting your essential vitamin and mineral intake to ensure all the essential nutrients required for hair growth are available in adequate amounts.
Fusion Health Hair Tonic is a unique product incorporating the appropriate Chinese herbal extracts, including Phytofol, that work in synergy with one another, whilst Fusion Health Hair, Skin & Nails contains the vitamins, minerals and nutrients relevant to hair health.
For best results and to provide nutritional support for healthy hair growth, it is suggested taking both products together.
