Nioxin: Care for your hair and scalp
Nioxin hair and scalp products have been winning awards and accolades since they were first launched in the 1990’s. With an innovative approach to maintaining healthy hair and scalp, each regime in the brand has specific care factors for different hair types.
At Cheynes we believe in recommending the very best products for you and your individual haircare regime.
Nioxin brings additional benefits for you if you are concerned about hair loss.
There are 6 main reasons why your hair may be thinning:
Genetic: A common family predisposition involves natural, age-related hormonal changes that can trigger hair loss. This is caused by the conversion of testosterone into the toxin Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and can be inherited from either your mother or your father.
Stress and Trauma: Stress can produce increased levels of testosterone, which converts to DHT and interrupts the hair’s growth cycle. Stress also constricts blood supply through the capillaries, restricting oxygen and nutrient uptake and vitamins to the hair follicle.
Health: Several underlying health issues can cause hair thinning, including a malfunctioning of the hormone-producing thyroid or the natural hormonal changes women experience after pregnancy and during menopause.
Environment: Air and water pollutants, chlorine, metals and minerals may be left on the scalp and hair thus contributing to thinning. Pollutants such as pseudo-estrogens and toxins from within our bodies are also a factor.
Medication: The hair follicle is incredibly sensitive to changes in the body. Any hormone therapy (including birth control) can contribute to hair thinning, as can steroids, specific chemotherapies, and medication for blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and acne.
Nutrition and Diet: What you eat can plays a significant role in hair thinning. High consumption of animal fats, rapid weight loss and liquidprotein diets can result in a lack of amino acids,biotin,iron,proteinandzinc— all of which are essential for healthy-looking hair.
