What causes hair loss and hair fall?

The following common issues can sometimes go unresolved, putting you at risk of hair loss and poor hair health.

Hair thinning and excessive fall-out are increasingly common in both men and women, caused by factors like genetics, stress, and ageing. Thinning and fall-out are only noticeable once around a third of hair is already lost, so it's crucial to take action early.
Our entire range of Activance Leave-in Treatments has the full-strength power of Rhodanide. Used regularly, it can help prolong the hair growth cycle and delay the shedding phase.

Many shampoos, conditioners, hair products, and colouring treatments contain harsh chemicals that can damage, irritate, or dry out your hair or scalp.
Activance products contain no hidden nasties or damaging chemicals and leave behind no coatings or residues. Instead, our products contain nourishing natural plant extracts especially selected to foster an ideal environment for your hair to thrive.

Female head with hair extensions
Hair extensions can cause a type of hair loss known as traction alopecia, which occurs when the weight of extensions pulls out the weakened roots of your natural hair. In some cases of this type of trauma, the follicles may be too stressed for hair to grow back.
Our range of Leave-in treatments feed follicles the nutrients they need to combat traction alopecia, promoting healthy growth and nurturing hair that has been damaged by trauma.

Medication tablets in blister packs
Physical or emotional stress can sap the nutrients that hair needs to grow. Hair loss is also a side effect of numerous common medications, including contraceptive pills, painkillers, and antidepressants.
When your body is busy coping with stress or medication, regular topical use of Activance feeds your follicles directly through absorption, providing nourishment exactly where it's needed.

Hormonal imbalances from illness, childbirth, menopause, and andropause are a common trigger for hair loss. Our treatments can supply the nutrients your hair needs to stay in balance in combination with a medically supervised treatment regime.
Pregnancy causes some noticeable changes to your hair. A remarkable side effect is that your hair will often look fuller and thicker due to hormone changes that keep your hair from falling out. After childbirth, benefits from the 'good hair pregnancy hormone' will be lost & you might find that you are losing a lot more hair than usual after 3 or 4 months; this is called postpartum hair loss. The good news is that using our Activance treatments, shampoos, & conditioner now will help minimise the extent of postpartum hair loss.

Healthy hair is easy when we're young - ­but ­­like bone and muscular growth, hair reaches its peak at around age 20 and slowly declines after this time. 
We recommend prevention as the most significant success factor in delaying the decline in follicle numbers and fighting ageing effects on hair. With regular use, Activance can help you to achieve not just beautiful hair now but happy, healthy hair for life.

Many illnesses can cause hair thinning or loss. One common ailment is alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease that leaves both men and women with bald patches the size and shape of coins (pictured).
Our full-strength Leave-in Treatments can be tailored to suit individual needs. For alopecia areata sufferers, the treatment can be applied to specific areas twice a day or more, helping to increase the rate of results.
