There are many health related and personal reasons that people struggle with hair loss. We also know men and women’s hair loss issues can be brought on by a variety of controllable and non-controllable factors. While men, more commonly, tend to follow genetic markers, women, on the other hand, often have a more complex set of triggers that may lead to thinning hair or hair loss.

We can begin with a situation that is very current and it is the relationship between the Covid 19 pandemic and hair loss. Recent studies have shown that many individuals are faced with some amount of hair loss two to three months after recovery from the Corona Virus. Their hair eventually returns, but the period until its regrowth varies as does its uniformity.

So Covid 19 is one factor, but let’s not stop there. Here is a list of twelve other possible influential factors that can affect your scalp and hair:

  1. Genetics
  2. Age
  3. Alopecia
  4. Hormones
  5. Vitamin D Deficiency
  6. Vitamin B 12 Deficiency
  7. Stress
  8. Iron Deficiency
  9. Trauma
  10. Overworking the hair
  11. Pregnancy
  12. Weight Loss

You may research each of these individual topics and find helpful information of how they may affect hair fragility or loss on the internet.

Our principle haircare brand is Davines which includes within it, a group of products designated as ‘Naturaltech’ which is dedicated to the scalp and its complexities.  Naturaltech systems labelled products include the Energizing Line that specifically target thinning or fine hair and are supported by natural ingredients like Mung Bean and Crimson Clover Extract each of which aides in the first phases of hair loss prevention. Because the hair follicle is one the last tissue groups to receive nutrition, ‘Energizer’ helps stimulate the scalp and increase blood flow, resulting in a thicker hair strand and the slowing of hair loss.

Some other helpful hints include massaging the scalp regularly, softly brushing your hair using a good boar bristle brush, refraining from over washing your hair, refraining from the use of excess heat, scheduling regular haircuts, eating a balanced diet that include natural supplements that correlate to the health of your hair and nails. (I might recommend ‘Viviscal’.)
