HAIR CHECK: Using Technology To Determine Hair Health

Aside from the telltale signs like split ends and dry and brittle strands, and DIY hair checks you may do at home such as tug and knot tests, determining the true health of your hair and scalp may call for something more complex.

Nowadays, with the advent of scientific and technological advancements, equipment and diagnostic tests for examining the hair and scalp up close are available in dermatological clinics. These allow for a closer inspection of the hair and scalp to detect problems that are not visible to the naked eye such as pore obstruction, overactive secretion of sebum, dandruff, dry and/or flaky scalp, inflammation, and other issues.

Folliscopefolliscope

The folliscope is an automated handheld apparatus with a microscopic camera that connects to a computer via USB. It shows a clear and high definition image of the scalp and hair and saves the captured real-time digital images, which may be used as reference for further testing.

Hair and Scalp Analyzer SystemsHair & Scalp AnalyzerThese are complete computerized software and equipment that performs a series of thorough visual and direct analysis on the hair and scalp. It also measures hair density, hair shaft diameter, hair growth, sebum rate and meter, among others. Usually, these diagnostic tests also include dietary and lifestyle investigations to gauge what other factors may be contributing to hair loss or poor hair health and determine the appropriate and necessary treatment.

ASK THE EXPERTS: Fanny Serrano

Get the answers straight from the NOVUHAIR® panel of experts for all your hair-related, and health and wellness questions.

Dear Tito Fanny,

I’m a PR and Events Manager based in Makati and my job always calls for me to be well-groomed and fashionably put together whenever I’m working. Lately though I am stressing out because of extreme hair fall and bald patches are starting to form on my scalp. I’ve tried several hair loss treatments but they don’t seem to have any effect.

Styling my hair in such a way that it hides the bald spots is becoming more and more challenging every day. It’s really frustrating and I’m getting self-conscious because I don’t want other people to see the bald spots.

Do you have any hair styling tips that will disguise my thinning hair and conceal the shiny patches?

Distressed Chick

Dear Distressed Chick,

I totally understand your problem. I went through the same thing as well. There are many ways to hide bald spots and make thin hair appear thicker and fuller. Believe me I’ve done all of them and more. But these are all temporary solutions and what you need is a permanent one to lessen your hair fall and make your hair grow back.

I swear by the NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion and I highly recommend you try it too. With regular use, you will see results in two (2) weeks. I can personally attest to this. Before I discovered NOVUHAIR® I was already resigned to wearing wigs but now you will see I have a full head of healthy and shiny hair.

NOVUHAIR® is made of all-natural ingredients like moringa oleifera (malunggay), panax ginseng, aloe vera, virgin coconut oil, among others, that stimulate hair growth, improve the flow of nutrients to the scalp, and nourish the hair follicles to make it stronger and lessen hair fall.

Try NOVUHAIR® and there’ll be no need to hide bald spots.

Fanny Serrano is one of the country’s pioneering make-up artists and hairstylists, a leading and respected beauty expert, a salon owner and fashion designer.

Kim Atienza – Natural Health Advocate & Trivia Expert Philippines

Kim Atienza
I wear so many hats as an actor, TV host, and weatherman and passionate about my exercise regimens and trainings as a triathlete.

I’m a believer in the efficacy and benefits of herbal products and I have discovered after much research that Novuhair, nature’s answer to hair loss is the perfect fit for those after a healthy hair and scalp. Novuhair’s efficacy lies in the complex combination of natural ingredients that have been tested and proven among its users.

After careful research as an expert, these are the ingredients that I’m proud to disclose: Novuhair is made of natural ingredients such as virgin coconut oil, the essential oils of rosemary, lemongrass and peppermint, panax ginseng, and moringa oleifera, among others. Collectively, they help increase the flow of nutrients to the scalp, nourishing it and preventing excessive hair loss, or remedying it for those already experiencing the condition.

Its other effects include the delay of hair graying, as well as maintaining the hair’s natural luster.

I’ve always believed that caring for one’s scalp is no different from caring for the body: one has to be mindful about what they put in it. Or in the case of hair fall, what people put on their heads.

At the end of the day, if there is one more thing that I give my hats off to, it’s nature’s answer to hair loss that cares for the scalp the all-natural way: Novuhair.

Novuhair? Bilib ako diyan!
