NEW BEAUTY AWARD winner 2020 & 2021
Thinning hair anyone? What about your husband's receding hairline? Postpartum? Menopausal? So many different factors of life can tie into hair loss. Sometimes it's genetics and other times it's everything we will discuss in this blog BUT the facts are we all know how hard and long it takes to grow hair. It takes months. So, have patience and trust the process! Now lets talk science.
A little background on me and why I decided to try it in the first place was because I was having a scary amount of hair fall out and I felt my hair thinning. I stay stressed and I can be pretty anxious at times and that’s a huge factor in hair loss. I had breakage root to end and I was looking for something that was going to help not only the physical appearance but the integrity and health of hair. I've used them over the 90 day supply and I don’t see myself stopping any time soon!
At first-it took me some dose adjustments while my body was getting used to all the new vitamins. Which by the way the system can replace any and all multivitamins, prebiotics, and probiotics that you currently take. Unless prescribed from your doctor of course. I experienced minor tummy cramps for a week maybe if that and my skin purged a little so I backed from the suggested 4 pills a day to 2 a day for 2 weeks and then upped it back to 3 then 4 and I'm fine now! I take 4 every day along with the stress adaptogen and booster.
Everyone will be different and there is a kit for everyone! Men, Women, Postpartum, Stressed & Menopausal
HAIR HEALTH FACTORS:
New research shows that several underlying factors that affect overall health can profoundly impact your hair and everyone’s combination of causes is different. Nutrafol targets key factors that can shorten the growth phase, delay new growth, and cause new hair to grow thinner.
1. Hormones- DHT sensitivity can be caused by genetics, stress, meds, poor diet, and toxins.
2. Stress- Short-term or chronic, physical or emotional stress like surgery or a demanding job.
3. Environment- Refers to your surroundings, the products you use, and the foods that you eat.
4. Metabolism- Influenced by inflammation, high glycemic diet, and thyroid issues.
5. Nutrition- Nutrient deficiencies result from poor diet or a compromised gut microbiome.
Identifying some of your triggers will help us decide which kit and supplements will be best for you!
Men have 40% more androgen receptors than women do, which is why male and female hair thinning patterns tend to be different.
-75% of Americans report increased feelings of stress when experiencing hair loss
-93% of Americans have traces of BPA(plastics) in their bodies. These expose you to heavy metals like mercury, pollution, cosmetic and household chemicals, plastics, UV rays, and extreme temperatures that can increase oxidative stress (an excess of free radicals in the body) and throw off the antioxidant balance.
If the body is unable to clear toxins quickly, antioxidants stores are depleted allowing oxidative stress to damage the hair follicle and disrupt normal hair follicle cycling. This can cause weak and thin hair.
Physical damage from over-styling is also counted in your hair’s environment.
-Over 100 million Americans are living with blood sugar issues (Metabolism)
-85% of adults show poor absorption of nutrients. Nutrient deficiencies can
result from an inadequate diet.
But even if you’re eating the right foods, factors like stress or poor absorption from a compromised microbiome can divert essential nutrients away from your follicles to more vital organs leaving less nourishment for growth. Poor microbiome health can result from the recent use of antibiotics, aging, a diet low in whole foods or high in processed foods, or lack of exercise.
Nutrafol not only helps hair health but you’ll see benefits in overall mood, energy, stress, sleep, libido and skin/nails.
