Identify the cause

There are many factors that can disturb the normal hair growth cycle (HGC), causing hair to thin. Professor Jan Wadstein, Nourkrin hair expert, explains: “Almost all types of thinning hair and hair loss have a disrupted hair growth cycle. The hair follicles begin transitioning from growth phase to resting phase prematurely. This means that the average duration of the growth phase becomes increasingly reduced over time, and hair sits inactive in the follicle for longer, resulting in increased shedding and weaker re-growth.” Stress is a major trigger of HGC disruption, and for women, hormonal irregularities can also cause hair loss. Nutritional deficiencies from a poor diet is another trigger, and certain medicines, chemical over-processing, incorrect styling techniques and genetic predisposition are also key causes, with the latter particularly significant in men. Wadstein says: “Male genetic hair loss occurs when hair follicles are genetically predisposed with a high sensitivity to the male hormone DHT, a by-product of testosterone that has a miniaturising effect on hair follicles that results in the follicle becoming unable to produce normal, healthy hair over time.”
