Hair Loss Affects 1 out of 4 People

WHAT ARE YOUR RISKS?


Dandruff, dermatitis and itchy scalps

Two out of 10 Australians suffer from dandruff, and even more have allergies or conditions, such as dermatitis, that leave them with an itchy, irritated or oily scalp. Latest studies confirmed that untreated dandruff could result in inflammation, hair thinning and loss and that a proper dandruff treatment could resolve the flakiness and itch and also improve hair density.

 

Activance Alleviate soothes and calms these common conditions. Prompt and proper use 2–4 times daily may quickly relieve symptoms and flakiness without cortisone or other hazardous chemicals.


Disease and illness

Many illnesses can cause hair thinning or loss. A common ailment is alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease that leaves men and women with bald patches the size and shape of coins (pictured) on the scalp or beard areas.

 

Using Densify or Alleviate 2–3 times daily in the initial treatment may fast track regrowth result.


Drug, medicine and contraceptive pill

About 80% of most popular regular medicines like antidepressants, blood pressure, cholesterol, painkillers and blood-thinners have hair thinning or loss as potential side effects. Most (over 98%) anti-cancer drugs or therapy will induce massive hair shedding 2–4 weeks after commencement. Moreover, 5 out of 10 Australians take one or more medications daily making drug-induced hair loss prevalent.

 

Preventive and regular use of Activance feeds hair with regenerative nutrients to help minimise hair loss and speed up regrowth.

Female pattern hair loss

Two out of 10 women aged 30 years, 3 out of 10 women aged 40 years (and so on), suffer decreased hair density over years through repeated hair miniaturisations caused by DHT or/and other hormones. Its timing is genetically predetermined and individual, occurring only in DHT sensitive areas such as the central (vertex, mid and frontal) scalp forming a pattern like a Christmas tree.

 

Activance’s regenerative, anti-DHT action may help delay its onset while promoting and maximising growth.


Hair ageing

Thick healthy hair is easy when we’re young but, like skin and bone, hair growth reaches a peak at around age 20, then slowly declines. Prevention is the most significant success factor in delaying the decline in follicle numbers and fighting against ageing effects on hair.

 

Regular use of the regenerative Activance spray with its powerful antioxidants and hair growth nutrients can help you achieve beautiful hair now and for life.


Harmful chemicals, free radicals and pollutants

Originating from hair products, colour treatments, fluoride and chlorine in water, air pollutants and ultraviolet radiation (UV), they lead to rhodanide depletion and damage to the hair and scalp, impeding its aesthetic, growth and health. Read our blog about Why you should us an Activance Sulphate-free & Paraben-free Shampoo & Conditioner. 

 

As a result, choose personal products carefully and replenish lost rhodanide with natural ‘no-nasties’ antioxidant-rich Activance. It will gently detox your hair and scalp, promote growth, and delay premature thinning and ageing.

Hormonal imbalances

We have over 50 hormones in our bodies. Any imbalances to key hormones such as insulin, thyroid, sex hormones, the stress hormone cortisol or, as result of childbirth, breastfeeding, menopause, andropause are common hair loss triggers. For more information on how hormones influence hair growth read our blog about Menopause and Hair Loss. For information about hair loss after childbirth read our blog.

 

Combining proper corrective treatment that addresses the cause, with regular use of anti-DHT Activance can supply your hair with antioxidants and nutrients for optimal growth.

Male androgenetic hair loss

Three out of 10 men aged 30 years, four out of 10 men aged 40 years (and so on), suffer androgenetic hair loss. Male pattern hair loss is caused from hair miniaturisation due to ongoing growth inhibition imposed by the prominent androgen, DHT. Its timing is genetically predetermined and individual, occurring only in DHT-sensitive areas like the front hair line, temporal and crown areas.

 

Activance’s regenerative, anti-DHT action may help delay its onset while promoting and maximising growth.

Nutritional imbalance

Nutrients are primarily used for cells to generate energy to sustain life. Repairing or making new cells, or organs, in non-vital areas such as hair follicles is secondary. During nutrient deficiency, all resources, including energy and cell building blocks, are diverted to vital organs (i.e. brain, heart and lungs) to keep you alive. This leaves nothing for follicles to grow and results in hair loss.

 

With the right nutrient intake and regular use of nutrient molecules in Activance, your hair will be helped to regenerate and growth should improve.

Seasonal hair loss and shedding

Some otherwise healthy people complain of recurrent hair loss as the seasons change. Clinical studies reveal maximal non-growing (telogen) hair in summer, with a second smaller peak in spring but lowest in late winter. Some scientists see the change simply as nature’s seasonal cycle of hair growth and shedding, while others believe that stronger and longer UV sunlight exposure in summer generates more harmful free radicals to damage hair, resulting in excessive hair fall in late autumn. For more information plese read our blog Seasonal hair loss and you.

 

Activance’s antioxidant and anti-free radical actions might help to minimise the autumn shedding.


Stress-induced excessive fall-out or shedding

In this stressful world, who is not affected? It is not a myth, and scientists can pinpoint the exact way it induces hair loss. Women are more prone to stress, making it the second most common hair loss in females. It often occurs one to four months after stressful life events such as a death in the family, marriage breakup or medical operation.

 

Applying Activance spray may help to reduce or stop excessive shedding. It’s crucial to act early. Regular use of Activance for hair health as a preventive measure is recommended.


Traction alopecia

Excessive hair pulling from tight ponytails, braiding or hair extensions can weaken and damage the hair roots, leading to a form of hair loss known as traction alopecia. It is more prevalent in African women at a rate of three out of 10.

 

We recommend using an Activance spray regularly to strengthen the entire hair, from roots to tips, to minimise the incidence of traction alopecia while promoting hair growth and regrowth.
