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.
Hair loss is slowed and in many cases reversed by use of a laser hair comb if body and scalp conditions are at their best. Some conditions are easily improved, and others require consultation with a medical professional. Make sure you consult your doctor before you change any health regimen including the addition or deletion of medications, change of diet and then the use of a laser hair comb. For optimum scalp health and to maximize the benefit of using a laser hair comb, your whole body needs to enjoy a balanced diet. This includes lean protein, soy, complex carbohydrates found in fruits and vegetables and monounsaturated fats found in extra virgin olive oil and nuts. Carbohydrates such as potatoes, pasta and bread turn immediately to glucose and elevate blood sugar levels which hamper a balanced blood sugar level necessary for optimum health.
A licensed physician who specializes in female hair loss treatment can run blood tests or skin biopsies to determine these underlying causes. There number of reasons why serious hair shedding is occurring, and if they are not addressed by laser comb therapy, the attempt to reverse a hair thinning condition can be futile. A laser hair comb, depending on the amount of damage, may help in the case of traction alopecia. Perhaps you relied too much on corn rows and tight braiding for your favorite hairstyles. If you did, unfortunately, you put your problems with female hair thinning into motion. Called traction alopecia, this means you not only damaged the hair itself, but you seriously damaged the follicles. Your physician will be able to determine whether it would be useful.
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).
