Can NOVUHAIR® help my hereditary hair loss?

Male Pattern Hair Loss or hereditary hair loss, as it is more commonly called, can affect more than fifty percent of the male population.   Treatments vary, from hair replacement surgery to prescription drugs, or a variety of untested and experimental treatments.  NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion is a nearly all-natural solution that targets seemingly closed hair follicles, nourishes new hair strands and promotes new hair growth.

Does NOVUHAIR® directly address DHT?

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a hormone usually found in cases of genetically inherited hair loss.   DHT causes the hair follicles to shrink or miniaturize and eventually produce thinner hair.  NOVUHAIR® does not have any direct effect on DHT itself, but may help continuously nourish the hair follicles, increase the blood circulation of the scalp, activate dermal papilla to stimulate new hair growth and prevent further thinning of hair.

Can NOVUHAIR® help improve my premature graying problem?

NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp lotion may help address premature graying concerns when used for a longer period of time, because it contains natural ingredients such as Biotin, Phyllanthus Emblica (Indian Gooseberry) and Dexpanthenol (Vitamin B5), important ingredients used to maintain natural color and which delay the ageing process.

Is NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion safe to use immediately after the hair salon?

If hair has been chemically treated or has undergone any salon treatment, NOVUHAIR® products are generally safe for immediate use.

However, as a matter of precaution, since salon treatments often make use of products with a high concentration of chemicals, we recommend observing a rest period of 3 days prior to using any NOVUHAIR® product.

I’m currently using a chemical-based hair growth solution. How soon can I start to use NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion?

We recommend that you stop using the hair growth solution for 1 month. Then start using NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion, as directed.

What hair care/hair styling products should I avoid when using NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion?

When using NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion, we advise that you use water-based hair care/hair styling products and avoid using alcohol-based hair care/hair styling products such as hair spray, gel, wax, or mousse.  We highly recommend that you use a herbal-based shampoo like NOVUHAIR® Herbal Shampoo, to cleanse and prepare your scalp prior to the application of NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion and NOVUHAIR® Herbal Conditioner to give your hair a shinier, softer and supple look.

Can I use NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion for my dandruff?

Dandruff can be one of the factors that trigger excessive hair fall.  NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion boasts of its natural ingredients which may help alleviate scalp itchiness and prevent dandruff such as Cocos Mamillaris (Virgin Coconut Oil), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera), Acacia Concinna (Shikakai), Mentha Piperita (Peppermint), Cymbopogon Citratus (Lemongrass), Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) and Lavandula Officinalis (Lavender).

Can I stop using NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion after achieving desired results?

How does healthy hair grow, and what are its growth cycles?

Healthy head hair can undergo a “natural growth” cycle of up to four to six years.  However, this isn’t necessarily the case with the rest of your body hair.  For example, eyebrow hair growth cycle is usually 4 months.

Generally, healthy hair experiences 3 growth cycle stages – (1) Anagen phase; (2) Catagen phase; (3) Telogen phase.

Anagen phase is the active growth stage of your hair follicles. During this phase, the cells in the root of your hair are dividing rapidly, adding to the hair shaft and growing about 1 centimeter every 28 days.  The hair in your scalp stays in this active phase for 2-6 years.  The amount of time that your hair follicle stays in this phase is genetically determined.  At the end of this phase, an unknown signal causes your hair follicle to proceed to the next phase – Catagen phase.

Catagen phase is the short transition stage of your hair follicles. During this phase, the active growth of your hair comes to an end.  The hair in your scalp stays in this phase for about 2-3 weeks while a club hair starts to be formed.

Telogen phase is the resting stage of your hair follicles.  At any given time, 10%-15% of your hair are in this phase. The hair in your scalp undergoes this phase for about 100 days while it takes much longer for your eyebrows, eyelashes, arms and legs.  During this phase, your hair follicles rest completely and the club hair is completely formed.  Pulling out a hair undergoing this phase will reveal a solid, hard, dry, white material at the root.  Consequently, you will shed about 50 to 100 hair strands each day.

If hair fall is a normal part of my hair’s growth cycle, when does it become abnormal?

It is normal to shed about 50 to 100 strands each day as part of your hair’s growth cycle. Beyond this number is alarming and may be considered abnormal.  Ignoring this sign may eventually lead to balding.

What are the early warning signs that I should watch out for to prevent getting bald?

Some of the noticeable early warning signs that you should watch out for include excessive hair loss, hair thinning and bald patches.

What are the causes of excessive hair loss?

Some of the factors which may cause excessive hair loss are hair habits, health conditions, hormonal changes, postnatal process, medications, poor diet, stress and some chemicals in hair care/styling products.

What are the psychological and social behavior effects of excessive hair loss?

Excessive hair loss is common in men and women and is viewed as part of aging. Often, men feel less attractive and less masculine when losing hair.  Women find it socially disturbing to have thin hair or bald patches.

What can I do to stop or prevent hair loss?

While the right treatment will ultimately depend on the variety of your hair loss, maintaining good overall hygiene is the first step towards overall healthy hair.  NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp lotion is a safe, effective and proven natural nourishment for your hair and scalp that helps stop ongoing hair fall and stimulate hair growth.
