Its been almost 4 years since I’ve started blogging and this is the first time, I see a beauty (hair-care) brand organizing a launch event in Chennai. All thanks to BlogAdda for taking up this initiative and organizing this wonderful event. The day was quite memorable in terms of meeting like-minded fellow bloggers and some wonderful BlogAdda team members and most importantly hearing from the experts about the product and experiencing the same at a best-in-class salon “Bounce”!
Nioxin was founded in 1987, by Eva Graham when she experienced hair thinning problem after the birth of her first child. She began to investigate the idea of treating the scalp with skincare methods. Hair thinning is a major problem across all age groups & gender, though the condition cannot be reversed, with early detection, advanced technology and professional help the situation can be controlled.
Hair thinning is caused by various factors. The primary ones are,
Genetics –> Age related hormonal changes, the conversion of testosterone into the toxin Dihydrotestosterone ( DHT ) triggers the hair loss and this can be inherited easily from either of the parent.
Stress & Trauma –> Stress increases the Testosterone levels which later transforms into DHT and stops the hair growth. Stress constricts the blood supply through the capillaries, which restricts the oxygen & nutrient uptake & vitamins to the hair follicle.
Nutrition & Diet –> Consumption of animal fat, weight loss, liquid protein diet will result in lack of amino acids, biotin, iron, protein & zinc – these are the essentials for a healthy looking hair!
Health Issues –> Thyroid – Hormonal changes during pregnancy & menopause could also trigger hair loss
Environmental Factors –> Polluted Air/Water, chlorine, lead etc could lead to hair thinning problems
Medication –> Hormone therapy, usage of steroids, chemotherapies, medication for blood pressure, diabetes, heart diseases and acne would cause hair thinning!
Other contributing factors include excessive usage of Styling tools, chemical treatments and aging!
