What Is Hair?
Believe it or not, each strand of hair is made up of a range of interlocking cells that are actually dead and have no regenerative properties.
Each hair grows from a hole known as a follicle which lies below the skin of your scalp. The follicle, which is very much alive, pushes the hair up through the skin at a rate of approximately half an inch or 12 millimetres a month. Follicles contain nerves and capillaries and are stimulated by blood flow.
Each hair continues to grow for up to seven years when it enters a ‘resting phase’ and then falls out. A new hair begins to grow in its place anywhere between three weeks and three months later.
At any one time approximately 85% of hair is growing and 15% is resting. The loss of between fifty and a hundred hairs a day is considered normal.
Hair loss is the result of hair not regrowing after falling out. This happens when the follicle does not receive sufficient blood flow and nerve stimulation.
Of the 100,000 hairs on your head, you need to lose about half before thinning becomes noticeable. Of course, if all the lost hair is in on small area such as on the crown of the head, the effects will become more noticeable.
Hair Loss in Women
Hair loss in women is much more common than most people think.
Around half of women are affected by hair loss of some kind by the age of 50. In most cases it shows itself as thinning rather than areas of baldness.
Male Pattern Baldness
By far the most common form of hair loss is androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness. This is the type of baldness treated by Innovative Hair Loss Solutions.
We use groundbreaking, low-level Crown Laser technology to reinvigorate ‘tired’ and under-stimulated follicles so they begin to push up hairs out of the scalp again.
They are your hairs – there are no wigs, skull caps, transplants or implants whatsoever in the treatment used by Innovative Hair Loss Solutions.
My hair had been thinning slowly for about two years and I became very concerned about it as I had always had good thick hair. Then within a space of about two months it started thinning out at a much quicker rate. I became quite stressed as I thought that within a short time I would lose my hair. This prompted me to research Hair Loss sites and I found Innovative. I went to see them to see what they had to offer. The first consultation convinced me to sign up for treatment and I had never looked back.
Within three weeks of starting the treatment I stopped losing my hair and month after month it started to thicken again. I was extremely happy with the results and no longer felt stressed about the prospect of losing my hair. It was the pleasure to deal with the staff at Innovative as they made me feel very comfortable in my journey to hair regrowth. I have a thick head of hair now and am extremely pleased with the result. I have recommended Innovative to others who have also found it to be very successful.
