The Case of the Disappearing Hair

Either you got it, or you don’t. In this case, most people don’t want IT.

Thinning hair. Bald spots. Receding hairlines. It isn’t glamorous.

Don’t get me wrong, bald can be super sexy, especially on guys. But the thin, patchy part?

Not so much.

Hair loss (alopecia) can be caused by various things, like heredity, hormones, illness, stress, medications, aging, fungus, and poor nutrition (1), (2).

Hair disappears in typical ways like male and female pattern baldness (just on the head) or all over the body.

Or it may come out in clumps over a short time or gradually over many years (3).

It’s important to know what’s causing hair loss, to know what to do about it, if anything.

You might notice thinning hair and go nuts, trying everything under the sun to keep what you still have and grow more.

Or you might watch your scalp become more and more visible and figure that’s life.

You might get it over with and shave it all off.

You may worry that washing your hair makes it come out faster, but we humans naturally lose between 50 and 100 strands of hair every day, whether we shower or not.

And typically, for every departing hair, another one grows in (4).

The Case for Washing Your Hair

Regular washing with a high-quality shampoo will not damage hair.

Violent styling techniques and tight ponytails will, but cleaning hair is known to decrease levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, in hair follicles.

Stress is a significant cause of thinning hair in women (5).

Now, in case you suddenly feel an urge to panic, don’t.

We know that some stress is good. It’s better than none or too much, and the level of perceived stress is the part that matters (6), (7).

Stress helps us in many ways, such as working toward a goal, avoiding danger, or performing well.

We’re only in trouble when we think our stress is too great or lack resources and skills to function (8).

Some people shower to relax because cleaning our bodies provides tender loving care to our hair follicles.

Scalp buildup from dead skin, sebum, sweat, and dirt can cause folliculitis, an inflammation of hair follicles.

Left uncleaned, it can produce sores, pain, swelling, and permanent hair loss (9).

So, don’t be shy; WASH your hair!

It’s good for it, not bad. Maybe you already knew that. You might also know that not all shampoos are created equal.

Some cause problems like redness, itching, and dry scalp.

Others feel and smell lovely but cost way too much (cough); we won’t name any of those brands.

We will, however, mention a brand formulated with natural, plant-based ingredients like Baicapil™, Biotin, and AnaGain™.

These powerful complexes stimulate new hair growth, prevent hair loss, and strengthen hair (10).

Where can you get this #1-ranked, affordably priced, good-for-your-head shampoo?

It’s Clinical Effects Hair Therapy, and your new tresses will turn heads as it stimulates more growth, reduces hair loss, and improves follicle condition (11).

Complex #1 - AnaGain

AnaGain™ triggers new hair growth by 78% by stimulating hair follicles to accelerate their growth phase (anagen) (12).

See how AnaGain got its name?

During this phase, hair growth begins and typically lasts three to five years.

Usually, 90% of your hair is in the anagen phase and is busy pushing out strands that will continue to grow until you cut them, or they fall out.

Some people grow scalp hair for up to seven years, allowing it to get very long before the follicle pushes it out (13).

A study of men and women published by Clinical, Cosmetic, and Investigational Dermatology showed that promoting the anagen phase reduced hair fall and increased apparent hair density (14).

Clinical Effects Hair Therapy, with AnaGain™:

  • Kickstarts hair growth.
  • Prolongs the hair life cycle.
  • Improves the condition of hair.
  • Promotes denser, thicker hair.

Complex #2 - Baicapil™

Don’t try to pronounce it, or you might lose some hair. 😂

Just use it in the shampoo to reduce hair loss by 60%, especially for stress and age-related shedding.

After the anagen growth phase, the follicles shrink, and hair growth slows in the catagen phase.

The hair also separates from the follicle but stays in place for about ten days, then moves into the telogen phase, where the follicle shrinks and squeezes the hair out during the exogen phase when a new hair begins to grow (15).

Telogen effluvium is the premature termination of the anagen phase and can occur two to three months after a major stressful event.

This early end to hair growth may be responsible for most types of alopecia in women (16).

Clinical Effects Hair Therapy contains Baicapil™, extracted from soybeans, wheat sprouts, and an herb called Chinese skullcap.

It works by increasing hair thickness and improving follicle condition to keep strands “anchored” to the scalp. Baicapil™

  • Prevents hair loss.
  • Revitalizes follicles.
  • Protects against oxidative damage.
  • Increases thickness and volume.

Complex #3 – Ultra-pure Biotin

This one is easy to pronounce, and you’ve probably heard of it.

It’s another name for Vitamin B7, essential for strengthening Keratin, a structural protein that creates your hair.

It won’t prolong the anagen phase for people in good health with normal hair cycles, but Vitamin B7 is vital to the body’s metabolism (17).

It acts as a coenzyme in metabolic operations involving fatty acids and essential amino acids, making glucose from non-carbohydrates, boosting nervous system function, and supporting liver metabolism (18).

Biotin deficiency is rare, but some people are more susceptible, like those with Crohn’s disease.

Symptoms include hair loss, skin issues including rash, cracking in the corners of the mouth, dryness of the eyes, and loss of appetite.

Vitamin B7 also promotes nervous system function and is essential for liver metabolism (19).

It also counteracts styling and treatment damage done to follicles by nourishing and strengthening them to make hair more elastic and durable, so they “hang in there” longer (20).

Clinical Effects Hair Therapy with Ultra-pure Biotin:

  • Volumizes and strengthens hair.
  • Nourishes hair follicles.
  • Reduces frizz and breakage.

What the Fish?

You might be wondering what fish has to do with any of this.

The answer is that although Clinical Effects Hair Therapy doesn’t have fish in it, fatty fish like salmon, herring, and mackerel have protein, selenium, vitamin D3, and B vitamins, nutrients that may help promote a healthy and robust head of hair (21).

Here’s to fabulous hair! AND you’re beautiful just as you are.
