Abby Asistio – Alopecia Warrior, Singer/Composer – Philippines

Activa Media
I’m one of the new breed of young artists to join Manila Genesis Entertainment & Management Inc. I’ve recently released my debut, self-penned single titled “Beautiful” which was arranged by Jay Durias of South Border. The single’s music video is directed by Joaquin Valdes and is currently enjoying massive airplay on Myx as well as on Manila’s hottest radio stations.

As early as the age of four, I knew what it was like to be without hair. Diagnosed with alopecia areata, a condition that causes patches of hair loss around the body, I have lived through the entire process of experiencing hair fall: losing it little by little, and then deciding to shave it all completely last year. I even tried other hair loss remedies as I lived in the US for several years, including chemical-based products that have resulted in negative side effects.

One day, I’ve decided there was no more hiding. In September 2012, I took a stand and embraced my baldness. Together with my good friend Jing Monis, I’ve shaved my head and began with an Alopecia Areata Awareness Month Instagram campaign in which I’ve invited friends and family to pose with a double “A” sign using their fingers. The campaign grew to success and to date has over a thousand photos. On September 25 of the same year, I did a coming out concert where I performed bald in public for the very first time.

Last year I was highlighted as one of the top 41 best vocalists on The Voice Of The Philippines as one of its chosen contestants out of thousands of aspirants. Also a finalist of the Dove Real Beauty Campaign and one of Meg magazine’s 30 Young Achievers, I’ve made it one of my life goals to be a voice for those with alopecia areata. I am honored to be chosen as brand ambassador to Novuhair. This new platform will help me to continue my advocacy to share my music and life story.

Abby Asistio Before and After

Since using Novuhair, I’ve experienced remarkable results. Visible signs of hair growth appeared within five months of use – and this is after years of baldness caused by alopecia areata. The strands of my hair are thicker and more healthy-looking. My scalp is clearly nourished and invigorated. When it comes to hair growth, nature is on my side with Novuhair.

      Hello JM 🙂 Thanks for the inquiry. Novuhair topical scalp lotion contains natural ingredients that will help nourish and improve the overall cosmetic conditions of the hair. Based on our clinical findings, with
      consistent use of Novuhair twice a day, in 4-6 weeks the results showed the non-progression of hairloss, prevention of excessive hair shedding and stimulation of hair growth noticeable in as early as 4 months. Some evennotice the result earlier while some may take more time.

      If your hair loss is due to genetic makeup, DHT or Dihydrotestosterone is a hormone or enzyme that negatively affects the hair follicles of those with hereditary hair loss, starting at puberty stage.
      The DHT causes the hair follicles to shrink or miniaturize and eventually produce thinner hair.
      NOVUHAIR does not have any direct effect on DHT but may help continuously nourish the hair follicles
      thus prevent further thinning.

      Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion is priced at Php2,800 while Novuhair Herbal Shampoo is not sold in a separate package.I suggest that you buy Novuhair topical scalp lotion and use a herbal shampoo with another brand. The 200ml bottle may last up to 2-3 months. By that time, I think you’ll be able to
      save enough for your next bottle. At least you’re able to immediately address the alarming signs of
      your hair loss.

        hello Marie 🙂 As a rule of thumb, any person with chemically treated hair or has undergone any salon treatment may use NOVUHAIR® but must observe a resting period of 2-4 weeks if the salon chemical treatment used will produce any allergies or hypersensitivities. This is recommended in order to easily identify with certainty the real cause of the adverse reaction/s and not put the blame on NOVUHAIR®. All the active ingredients of NOVUHAIR® are natural and safe. However, we can’t vouch for the safety profile of salon treatments. While on NOVUHAIR® treatment, the person needs to refrain using any hair products with high concentrations of chemicals for this may defeat the purpose. Should the person opt to have another salon treatment while on NOVUHAIR® treatment, the person should stop using the NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion.

    hi! im sam. i used to have a very thick and volume hair. as a teen ager, i love using wax and spray nets. now i noticed that im experiencing a massive hairfall with dandruff. i once ignored it but lately its just like half of my hair was gone. then it came to my mind that my father gets bald as well when he was young. now im using your topical lotion for 2weeks. since this product does not have direct effect on DHT, can i still regain my hair back?

    So i would just like to ask about this Novuhair product my friend has been telling me to use. I grow long hair but it’s really thin maybe because of genes but i wanted my hair to have more volume. I want it to be thick especially the back part of my head. Some of my friends have been telling me that i’m about to have poknat konti nalang daw. And then they told me to use Novuhair. Can novu hair cover up my “almost bald spot”?

      Hello Xyrylle 🙂 Thanks for the inquiry. If your case is hereditary? By
      using Novuhair, you’re continuously nourishing your scalp, providing
      natural ingredients that may help nourish your hair follicles. The DHT
      (Dihydrotestosterone) in your hair follicles are continuously exerting
      negative effects, that is miniaturizing or shrinking the hair follicles,
      therefore producing thinner strands. This will continue to happen,
      therefore the need for a continuous nutrition. It really takes time to
      achieve this, more so that the progress is not visible to the eyes.

      Hello Cherienel 🙂 Thanks for the inquiry. It is very common for women to experience excessive hair loss after giving birth thus hair thinning becomes noticeable. If you’re finished breastfeeding, then you can start using Novuhair. We don’t recommend that you use Novuhair while breastfeeding. We don’t have any clinical trial to support it’s safety while breastfeeding, just like other cosmetics.

      Hello Marvin 🙂 Thanks for the inquiry.

      You will use Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion everyday twice a day morning and evening after taking a shower.
      Directions for use:

      1. Take a shower and use NOVUHAIR® Herbal Shampoo as you would use other shampoos. We don’t recommend the use of regular shampoos thatcontain harsh chemicals that damage the hair. You can also use other herbal shampoos like aloe or gugu. But only NOVUHAIR®Herbal Shampoo will complement the lotion and achieve maximum results.
      2. Rinse and towel dry.
      3. Apply liberal amount of NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion on the target areas.
      4. Massage the scalp for 5-10 minutes.
      5. Rinse and style your hair.

      We recommend that if you work indoors, no need to rinse the lotion. Use it like a leave-on. This will produce better results. Refrain from using wax or gel to avoid further damage.

      Have a great day ahead!

      Hello Bee 🙂 Thanks for the inquiry.

      Novuhair is clinically proven safe and effective to use. After achieving your desired results, you may pause for two (2) months then start another treatment should the noticeable warning signs occur. If your case is hereditary, once you have achieved the results, you may apply the lotion once a day for maintenance.
