GOING NATURAL: The Hans Palacios Novuhair-story

Hans Palacios candidly refers to his past life, as he calls his younger years, as the dark ages. It bore no resemblance to his current state of mind and well-being. Physically, he felt like an old man, with so many pains and ache for his age. Until he discovered the wonders of a natural food supplement that claims to protect the body from chronic diseases, among others.

Although hesitant and doubtful at first, he eventually tried it after numerous unsuccessful pain medications. Lo and behold, Hans felt like a new man – the numbing pain and aches were gone and he felt a rush of energy like never before.

Hans was overwhelmed by his experience that he started learning about natural therapies. Being an entrepreneur, he saw the great potential of nature-based products and therapies and started advocating natural health. Natural health is an alternative approach to health care that relies on the healing properties of nature to promote health and wellness of the mind and body.

Now in his late 40s, Hans has become of the country’s leading natural health advocates, juggling his advocacy with his roles as a family man and businessman. Five years ago, partly due to work-related stress and some of it genetic, Hans started to notice his receding hair line and thinning hair. While looking for a natural remedy to his hair issue, Hans’ friend, wellness guru and columnist Cory Quirino, told him about Novuhair.

Made of herbal ingredients like moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, aloe vera, and essences of rosemary and lavender, among others, Novuhair definitely met Hans’ standards. He was even more pleased when, after only two months of continued use, he saw unbelievably great results. His hair was becoming noticeably thicker and fuller, even his barber remarked on it. From then on, Hans has never looked back and continues to use Novuhair to this day.

For a natural health advocate like Hans, his crowning glory deserves nothing less than Novuhair, nature’s answer to hair loss.


The Newcomer to Your Routine

When it comes to looking good and maintaining our figure, we all have our routines: eat healthily, exercise regularly, cleanse, tone and moisturize. When it comes to hair care however, our commitment to routine varies.

Some of us prefer hair we can wash and wear. Others like to spend more time working their mane: blow drying, curling or straightening, gelling or waxing it into style. Others, still, have extra special requirements: a trip to the hair spa every now and then, a preferred stylist for trimming or drastic makeovers. Hair, indeed, is the one arena in which we can all agree to disagree.

But one thing’s for certain: we all want healthy, or at least healthy-looking, scalp and hair.

Now, apart from shampooing and conditioning, how does one achieve that, given the spectrum of dedication to hair out there? More importantly, is this even achievable for those who don’t feel like exerting too much effort on their mane?

The answer is yes, and it’s simple. One only needs to incorporate another player to their routine for leveled up maintenance: Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion.

danjune201502Though primarily known as nature’s own remedy to hair loss, Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion also works excellently as a hair care agent. This means using it to help prevent hair loss, as well as taking advantage of its side effects. Novuhair also helps hydrate the scalp, maintain the hair’s natural luster and prevent early hair graying and whitening.

Made of herbal ingredients that include moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, virgin coconut oil and the natural essences of rosemary and peppermint, Novuhair nourishes the scalp and hair by increasing the flow of nutrients and improving blood circulation to the scalp. This, in effect, helps solve hair loss and grow back hair. At the same time, it strengthens the scalp against premature hair loss.

Using Novuhair is quick and simple for everyone. Those who want a quick and instant solution simply need to squeeze out the lotion onto their scalp and take a few minutes to massage. Do this after rinsing out the shampoo, while bathing.

Those who don’t mind spending extra time on their crowning glory may also use it as a leave-on styling agent throughout the day. Again, simply massage on enough lotion to cover the entire scalp, and then style your hair accordingly.

It’s an easy single step to slide into your already established routine, and one that can be effortlessly applied by wash-and-wearers and high-maintainers alike.

Novuhair is available at all Mercury Drug and leading drugstores nationwide. Call 413-6570 or 0922-883-0575 and visit for more details.

Inheriting hair loss — and its solution

When considering the causes of an ailment, one of the first places to look is our genes. Could it possibly be something you’ve inherited?

With hair loss, this is certainly the case. In fact, it is the most common cause of hair loss, called Androgenetic Alopecia. It occurs in about 95 percent of males and 70 percent in females. Studies reveal that this also occurs in combination with other factors such as aging and hormonal changes.

Symptoms of hereditary hair loss include a gradual thinning of the hair to complete hair loss on a certain part of the scalp, if not entire baldness. The hair loss pattern and rate is different among men and women, though they similarly occur in the 20s and 30s. Family history is the biggest indicator of when hereditary hair loss starts to take place, and at what rate.

The good news is that hereditary hair loss is treatable. And while invasive options such as hair lasers and transplants abound, nature itself has bestowed us with the remedy we need to deal with hair loss.

Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion is an all-natural formula for treating hair loss. It is made of herbal ingredients such as moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, aloe vera, the essential oils of rosemary and peppermint, and virgin coconut oil. Collectively, the ingredients help improve blood circulation to the scalp and increase nutrients to hair follicles. Other beneficial side effects include returning and locking the hair’s natural luster, and preventing premature graying or whitening.

Just as hair loss can be inherited from your family, so can you inherit the solution — from nature.


FROM BALD TO BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL:Abby Asistio’s Recovery from Alopecia

Singer-songwriter, TV host, Novuhair brand ambassador, and the poster girl for alopecia in the country, Abby Asistio is singing a happy tune nowadays. And it’s all because of those precious new strands of hair which are obviously growing on her previously bald head.

Abby proudly shows off her head with its short hair, like a child showing off a prized toy. “It has consistently been growing longer these past two years. My hair is significantly thicker now and I could already style it in different ways, even without having to wear wigs, turbans, and other hair accessories,” she shares with an obvious gleam of joy in her eyes.

It seems like a miracle, those delicate black strands of hair growing from her scalp and for Abby, the sensations are almost all new to her. “I never thought I could have a full head of hair again. I could actually “take care of my hair” now and even go to the salon to get a trim,” she says enthusiastically. “I love having hair again,” she further states.

Abby’s secret? Novuhair, nature’s answer to hair loss, which she has been using for more than 2 years now. “I use the scalp lotion, shampoo, and conditioner religiously,” Abby continues.

Having alopecia is a huge part of Abby’s life journey and after successfully recovering from it since being diagnosed at the age of four, she has made it her mission to help others afflicted with the same condition. She started by putting up the first support group in the country – Alopecia Philippines, which aims to spread awareness about the condition and at the same time, inspire and motivate those with alopecia to become more secure and comfortable in their own skin.

“It’s never easy,” Abby says about living with alopecia. “But remember, you are not alone. People around you love and care for you, and accept and appreciate you for who you are. Look for someone to talk to, a shoulder to cry on, people to laugh about your journey and hair stories with,” Abby further shares.

“Everything happens for a reason. In the end, we can choose to rise above the disease and come out better, stronger, more courageous, and more beautiful. Our hair may come and go but it is who we are, what is inside that truly matters and lasts,” Abby says with a smile, the beautiful woman who has bravely battled alopecia and came out of it gloriously victorious with the aid of Novuhair. Abby thanks Novuhair, “I now have a full head of hair and feel more confident than ever before.”

Many men and women alike are faced with the sad reality of thinning or losing hair. This could sometimes be attributed to genetics or hormones but other causes are sometimes man-made like poor nutrition, excessive styling, and lack of proper hair care, which could still be remedied.

Below are five easy ways that will help you achieve thicker and more luscious locks.

1. Eat a healthy and balanced diet.

Eating right is an important component of having a healthy mane. Be mindful of what you take in and make sure to include fruits, vegetables, and rich sources of protein like chicken, dairy and meat. Proper nutrition is necessary to keep your locks in optimum condition.

2. Avoid heat damage from styling.

Be careful when styling your hair and limit the use of heat styling products such as irons, curlers, and dryers. Exposing hair strands to excessive heat, especially when wet, damages the cuticle and makes it dry, brittle, thin, and more prone to breakage.

3. Pamper your scalp.

Yes, your head needs some TLC too especially if you’re under stress. Emotional and physical stress also affect the tresses and manifest through falling or thinning hair. Indulge in a soothing head and scalp massage to help you relax and at the same time, stimulate the hair follicles to make hair grow thicker. Learn to manage and cope with stress to reduce its effects on your hair and body. 2

4. Use the right kind of shampoo.

Check the shampoo label and watch out for chemicals that may be too harsh for your mane. Use a shampoo that’s made of hair-friendly ingredients like Novuhair, nature’s answer to hair loss. Made of all-natural ingredients like aloe vera, virgin coconut oil, moringa, and other essential herbal oils, Novuhair cleanses your locks safely and at the same time, promotes stronger, shinier, and thicker hair.


5. Apply hair growing products.

There are many products in the market that claim to prevent or cure hair loss but sadly, not everything works. Choose a solution that’s proven to be safe and effective like Novuhair, nature’s answer to hair loss. It’s a topical lotion that’s specifically formulated to address hair loss and stimulate hair growth.

A new year always brings renewed hope, fresh beginnings and a chance to start anew. Better start writing down your goals and plans for the new year now. Here are a five quick and easy tips to boost your confidence and make things happen.

1. Sit up straight, stand tall.
Studies suggest that people with good posture exhibit a more confident attitude compared to those who are fond of slouching; they tend to have more belief in their thoughts and actions. Sitting up straight and standing tall is also a surefire way to look more attractive and that is always a confidence booster.

2. Practice good hygiene and proper grooming at all times.
This may seem very obvious but some people tend to underestimate the importance of these. Knowing you look and smell clean and good does wonders for your mood and self-image. It gives you an instant dose of confidence even around different people and situations. So always take a shower, spritz on some nice perfume, shave, get a regular haircut, and keep your nails neatly groomed. Switch to hair-friendly products. Check the labels on your shampoo, conditioner and other styling products for ingredients that may cause more damage to your hair. Some products contain chemicals that strip off natural oils, causing the weakening and thinning of hair strands over time. Look for products like Novuhair made with natural ingredients that protect and promote healthy hair.

3. Dress nicely and appropriately.
Choose clothes that are of good quality and flattering to your body. Always wear clean, presentable clothes and learn how to dress according to the occasion. A good wardrobe need not be expensive, just have flexible key pieces you can either dress up or down. Dressing nicely and appropriately always adds to your confidence and feelings of success, and helps command respect and credibility, especially in the workplace.

4. Think positively.
Make a conscious effort to replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Practice positive affirmations daily instead of stressing over what you think you can’t do. Channel your mind into a positive direction always and you’ll notice your entire perspective shifting from pessimism to optimism. Make positive thinking a habit and you’ll surely feel better about yourself and the world.

5. Smile.
Smiling is the quickest and easiest way to feel good about yourself. It instantly changes your mood and lifts the spirits. It also means you are self-assured and people will react positively to that, which in turn will give you a confidence fix.


FLYING HIGH:A Novuhair Hairstory

Anna Florres was living the life she’s always dreamed about. Her work as a flight attendant took her to many countries and gave her the opportunity to experience different cultures, a luxury she thoroughly enjoyed. The schedule may be gruelling and sometimes takes its toll on her health, but she did not mind in exchange for the many perks of her job.

After leaving the airline industry, Anna Florres switched to her true passion – events planning and management. Her family and friends could not be more supportive of her decision. She was always known to organize the best parties – from simple and intimate dinners at home to her best friend’s wedding. It didn’t take long for Anna Florres to make a name for herself as one of the top events planner in her area. Her schedule was booked many months ahead.

The long hours, lack of proper rest and stress eventually affected Anna Florres’s health and often made her sick. Her hair started falling off but still, she wouldn’t slow down. Until one day, she received devastating news from her doctor that would change her life forever. She had an early stage breast cancer.

Arlene immediately underwent treatment. Her body reacted positively to the chemotherapy and she eventually went into remission. But her hair was not as lucky. Almost all of her hair had fallen off. She started using wigs until a friend urged her to try NOVUHAIR® after seeing its ad on the back of a bus. Figuring she had nothing to lose by trying, Anna Florres gave NOVUHAIR® a try even though she didn’t particularly like the smell.

Three months after using NOVUHAIR®, Anna Florres noticed significant hair regrowth. Her hair was starting to return to its normal state – thick, full and shiny, just like when she was still working as a flight attendant. Pretty soon, she was ditching her wigs and heading out with her “new hair.”

Now at 45 years old, Anna Florres is cancer-free and wears her dark, shiny, and healthy hair in a chic bob. She still plans and throws the most amazing events but she’s taking it slow. She also continues to be a loyal NOVUHAIR® user.
