We normally lose up to 100 hairs per day, but there are that many new hairs being generated in the follicles each day on a healthy head. At any one time 90% of the follicles are producing hair in a growth (anagen) cycle, but each follicle has its own time clock that can be influenced by age, disease, medicines and other factors. This timed life cycle has three stages. The anagen phase is active growth and lasts between two to six years. The catagen or transitional phase lasts from two to three weeks. The telogen or resting phase lasts two to three months, and at the end of this phase the hair is shed and new hair replaces it, starting the cycle all over again.
Exposure to toxic chemicals (including tobacco smoke), radiation exposure, iron deficiency, hormonal changes (pregnancy), thyroid disease and stress including crash diets can be factors. It is important to note that many of these conditions change and hair follicles that are not totally "dead" for more that seven years can re-grow hair. The use of a laser hair comb along with proper nourishment, vitamins, exercise and optimum scalp care including proper shampoos, scalp nutrients and conditioners can reawaken, open up and spur follicles back into action to produce hair. Follicles that may be producing fine, weakened hair shafts will start producing thicker, shinier and healthier hair.
A de-chlorinating shower filter helps remove the harmful chemicals that build up on your scalp and skin, but even these are available at discounted rates when you purchase a complete hair therapy system from a reputable dealer. Healthy eating and exercise which also contribute to healthy hair are a benefit that we all could use more of. Some people arent aware of how easy it is to use the laser hair comb. Manufacturers recommend that the comb be used three days a week for 20-30 minutes per session. The laser comb is lightweight and should have no cords to get in the way of taking it in any room of the house or on vacation. The treatments require one to move the comb over the entire scalp or just over the desired area for timed intervals that are easy to gauge without timers. The teeth on the comb or brush hold the lasers at the desired distance from the scalp.
Alcohol should be limited to one drink per day as it robs the body of zinc, vitamin B, folic acid and vitamin C and upsets blood sugar levels. Caffeine depletes the body of Vitamin B and C, potassium and zinc. Decreasing nutrients in the bloodstream increases levels of DHT which inhibits the growth of new hair. Use of a laser hair comb will not be as beneficial if DHT is allowed to accumulate in the follicles. Nicotine of course should be avoided. Even a laser hair comb cannot combat certain medications that may or may not be prescribed by a medical professional. The following is only a partial listing, and of course you must investigate any medications you are taking for their relevance to scalp health. Cholesterol lowering drugs, Parkinson medications, ulcer drugs, anti-coagulants, anti-arthritics, anti-convulsants, antidepressants, beta blockers, anti-thyroid agents and male hormones may cause hair loss (reversible alopecia).
