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.




Wouldn’t it be great if we can step out every single day with salon-gorgeous hair? Unless you’re an A-lister celebrity with a team of hairstylists at your beck and call or a fashion model getting ready for that picture-perfect shoot, we all have to deal with our own hair issues. Thus, there are good hair days and bad hair days.

Say goodbye to bad hair days by changing the way you deal and feel about your hair problems. Sometimes, all it takes is one little thing to turn things around and feel more confident about your locks. Read on for a few tips.

Get a flattering haircut. Book an appointment with your stylist or if you have none yet, ask friends for a referral. Discuss with your hair stylist the best cut and color that flatters your face shape and suits your taste. Nothing says confident better than a woman who obviously rocks her ‘do.

Give your tresses some extra TLC by choosing hair-friendly products that keep it stronger, shinier, softer, more manageable, and smelling good throughout the day.

Heads up! Gary V on Novuhair: putting energy into prevention

GARY-90-x-140-mm-ColoredNothing describes Gary Valenciano quite like his moniker “Mr. Pure Energy,” He is the very image of youthful vibrance, whether onstage or not. That’s why it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he values the way he looks the same way that he values the core of who he is: a prayerful, faithful husband, dependable father, and an outstanding entertainer.

Part of what makes Gary stay young looking is his head of hair. What many people don’t know is that, like all other men his age, Gary once worried about hair thinning and hair loss. That’s why, at the first signs of the problem, Gary sought to find ways to prevent it from becoming worse.

“I first noticed the hair loss in the shower, after I toweled my hair dry. Then one day, my team of hairstylists noticed that my hair was thinning, too. That’s when they told me to look for the product that Fanny Serrano was using, a product called NOVUHAIR,” remarked Gary on his journey to regaining control over his hair loss.

NOVUHAIR is a topical scalp lotion that is a unique combination of 14 different natural ingredients and essential oils for a healthier hair and scalp. One of the factors of hair loss, according to studies, is stress, something that Gary experiences on almost a daily basis. Other factors include hereditary disorders, a persistent illness, major surgery, hormonal problems, childbirth & delivery, medications, infections, pollutants, and even excessive exposure to sunlight. And contrary to popular belief, hair loss is as much a problem for women as it is for men. In many cases, hair loss may be prevented or alleviated through early detection. In the case of Gary, his decision to try NOVUHAIR to prevent his symptoms from worsening made a big difference, and within a few months, he saw remarkable results.

Gary shares his experience with NOVUHAIR as he tells the story of their family hair history: “Hair loss runs in our family, too, even if it sometimes skips a generation. My brother and grandfather both lost their hair, but my dad still has a full head of hair at 87. I just wanted to make sure I take control of my symptoms. Now, I use NOVUHAIR everyday, and I’ve noticed that I don’t shed as much hair as I did before, especially after toweling my hair dry. And my hairstylists noticed it, too. I love using NOVUHAIR because it has this minty, cool effect that makes me feel like my hair is always clean and fresh.”

“In less than a month and half, I already saw results even if I was told to wait three to four months before I can see a difference. The effects on me were much faster. There were fewer strands on my white towel, which basically was within the normal boundaries of hair loss for an average person. Before using NOVUHAIR, I used to shed more.” This is due to the fact that NOVUHAIR penetrates deep to help rejuvenate, nourish, & maintain moisture in the scalp and hair. By improving the blood circulation in the scalp, NOVUHAIR helps stimulate hair growth and aid in preventing further, excessive hair fall, while also improving the overall appearance of the hair.

“I never endorse a product that I did not experience first. I have to make sure it is really effective. With Novuhair, I can say that it has really contributed to my peace of mind and overall well-being. And, heads up, as Novuhair is now part of my daily routine, which includes prayer, diet, and medication. God has truly lived up to his promise in my life, and as he says in Psalm 92:14 ‘I will keep you fruitful even in old age. Fresh and green.’ I am very happy now that Novuhair is a part of that.”

NOVUHAIR, Nature’s Answer to Hair Loss is available in all Mercury Drug outlets, Watsons, Rose Pharmacy, South Star Drug & Manson Drug, Metro Gaisano Pharmacy, The Landmark (Makati & TriNoma), J Centre Mall (Cebu), KCC Malls (Gen.

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.

Experts Agree! Novuhair: Nature’s Answer to Hair loss

Pep box ad Feb 18 _28Making healthy lifestyle changes has become the trend these days, and one notable habit shift is the preference for the all-natural. Experts in fitness, beauty and science are reaching a consensus on the beneficial use of herbal products – and while objectives vary, one need that mother nature has been serving as of recent is hair loss.

Beauty icon Fanny Serrano would know. It was no other than during the height of his career that he discovered he was losing hair. After a series of failed product trials, Fanny fatefully chanced upon Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion. With skepticism and nothing left to lose, he decided to give it a try – and came away from the experience discovering the answer to his problem.

Novuhair is made of all-natural ingredients that include panax ginseng, moringa oleifera, the essential oils of rosemary, lavender and peppermint, and virgin coconut oil. Known as nature’s answer to hair loss, Novuhair nourishes the scalp by increasing its flow of nutrients and improving blood circulation. This helps reduce excessive hair fall and eventually remedies hair loss, while also working as a preventative measure. It comes with other beneficial effects, as well: delaying early hair graying, and maintaining the hair’s natural luster.

Fanny is not the only one who has discovered Novuhair’s efficacy. Today, nature’s answer to hair loss has been tested and proven effective by its wide user base. This is thanks in part to the backing of the wellness community, including medical experts such as Dr. Edwin A. Bien.

The founder of LeBIEN Wellness Specialists, Dr. Bien is a long-time member of the local wellness movement. He started his clinic in the early nineties with the mission of spreading knowledge and championing the benefits of natural medicine, educating health practitioners, patients and the public alike. As of today, Dr. Bien has publicly vouched for the effectiveness of Novuhair’s all-natural ingredients, having given an interview on radio about the best topical solution to hair loss.

Novuhair is available as a shampoo, conditioner and topical scalp lotion – varied enough to complement different preferences and lifestyles, and as a complete set to deliver Novuhair’s optimum potential. Endorsers range from athletes to beauty queens, models to musicians, politicians to businessmen – all of whom could attest to the efficacy of Novuhair.

One of the latest in the brand’s string of ambassadors is TV Host and triathlete Kim “Kuya Kim” Atienza. The nation’s trusted weatherman has maintained a reputation as an expert, building on his knowledge for healthy living through research. It is thus of no surprise to find that for Kuya Kim, nothing beats natural when it comes to being good to your body.

And nothing could get as natural as Novuhair when it comes to caring for our scalp.

For the experts, Fanny, Dr. Bien and Kuya Kim, it all comes down to knowing your body’s needs and understanding that nature has provided it all – and for hair loss, too, no less. After all, in this day and age of medical discoveries and revelations, why go on with anything artificial when you could certainly go all-natural?

Novuhair delivers, the experts agree. And in the face of hair loss, the experts will tell you in unison: Novuhair is all you need.

Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion is available as an individual purchase; part of a combo pack that includes a bottle of Novuhair Herbal Shampoo; and a 3-in-1 pack that includes the herbal shampoo and a bottle of Novuhair Herbal Conditioner. Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion is available in all Mercury Drug Stores and all leading drugstores nationwide.
