Causes of hair thinning and balding

Thinning hair and baldness may be triggered by various causes, but genetics is one major factor that influences hair loss. The pattern of baldness in both men and women may be induced by a genetic make-up known as androgenetic alopecia.

Hair loss may also be temporarily experienced three to four months after an illness or surgery.

The over activity or under activity of thyroid gland as well the imbalance of androgen or estrogen are other causes of hair loss.
Poor diet and nutrition likewise contribute to hair loss as inadequate protein, vitamins and minerals impede proper hair growth.

There are several treatments for hair loss and most of these are drugs with known side effects. Once you stop these medications, hair loss resumes. Surgeries such as scalp reductions and hair transplants are expensive options and not all can afford it. But now, there is an effective natural hair loss solution without harmful side effect…

CORY QUIRINO – Beauty & Wellness Icon
“You don’t have to be scared if you’re losing hair because there’s always hope in a formulation that has all the powerful herbs that can help you stimulate hair growth and not just to make your hair thicker but to prevent hair loss. Especially for men who are starting to feel that they have thin patches. Novuhair can darken the hair because of biotin, it can make it thicker because of the ginger, moringa and virgin coconut oil. It stimulates the hair follicles and it helps the hair grow more strands.”

DR. RICA MALLARI – Dermatologist

“The study aimed to determine the efficacy and safety of a herbal extract mixture in hair growth induction among males and females with hair problems. The case study showed positive results defined with an increased number of hair growth, decrease in hair shedding, slight increase in the number and thickness of hair strands mostly on the 4th month. Furthermore, there were no complaints of systemic or general side effects.”

DR. DIETMAR RUMMEL – Medical Plants Specialist

“The solution to the problem of hair loss or regrowth of hair is not in some fancy artificial synthetic molecule but in nature.”

“Because of the combination of all of these plants acting as special vitamins which influence the falling hair regrowth, they will definitely have an effect.”

FANNY SERRANO – Salon Expert
“Before, when people would ask for my advice on hair fall, I couldn’t tell them anything. I didn’t want to claim. So I’d just make suggestions, and tell them to let me know whether the product works…”

“Now I don’t just say, you know, just try it. I tell them myself to try Novuhair because I was convinced.” Image courtesy of

DR. MARCELLANO CRUZ – Dermatologist
“Increased blood supply in the scalp helps stimulate hair growth. On the onset of experiencing excessive hair fall, as manifested by the countless hair strands on your pillow or while taking a show, it’s recommended that you immediately seek medical advice from the experts. It’s really important to have a proper diet, balance nutrition, regular exercise and a continuous hair nourishment treatment to ensure complete wellness.”

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.
