Studio 23 This is Life with Cory Quirino tackles the Efficacy of Novuhair on Hair Loss

Hair is a living protein, and as with any part of our bodies we must be sure to maintain proper health to optimize the chances of continuing to grow a healthy head of hair. Proper nutrition is vital to hair loss prevention, since the hair is a living and growing part of the body’s system. A healthy balanced diet, exercise, vitamins and herbal hair loss supplements will all aid in your hair loss prevention efforts.

Remember, the restoration of hair growth is not an overnight process. The process takes time regardless of the method chosen. Be patient, even the most effective hair loss products will take at least 3 months to show signs of improvement. Don’t give up, many people have had great success with their hair loss prevention.

A hair follicle is part of the skin that grows hair by packing old cells together. Attached to the follicle is a sebaceous gland, a tiny sebum-producing gland found everywhere except on the palms, lips and soles of the feet. The thicker density of hair, the more sebaceous glands are found.

Also attached to the follicle is a tiny bundle of muscle fiber called the arrector pili that is responsible for causing the follicle lissis to become more perpendicular to the surface of the skin, and causing the follicle to protrude slightly above the surrounding skin (piloerection). This process results in goose bumps (or goose flesh). Stem cells are located at the junction of the arrector and the follicle, and are principally responsible for the ongoing hair production during a process known as the Anagen Stage.

At the base of the follicle is a large structure that is called the papilla. The papilla is made up mainly of connective tissue and a capillary loop. Cell division in the papilla is either rare or non-existent.

Hair grows in cycles of various phases: Anagen is the growth phase; Catagen is the involuting or regressing phase; and Telogen, the resting or quiescent phase. Each phase has several morphologically and histologically distinguishable sub-phases. Prior to the start of cycling is a phase of follicular morphogenesis (formation of the follicle).

There is also shedding phase, or exogen, that is independent of Anagen and Telogen in which one of several hairs that might arise form a single follicle exits. Normally up to 90% of the hair follicles are in Anagen phase while, 10%-14% are in Telogen and 1%-2% in Catagen.

The cycle’s length varies on different parts of the body. For eyebrows, the cycle is completed in around 4 months, while it takes the scalp 3-4 years to finish; this is the reason eyebrow hairs have a fixed length, while hairs on the head seem to have no length limit. Growth cycles are controlled by a chemical signal like epidermal growth factor.
