The Problem of Hair Loss

Hair loss : it is a problem for many people. Both men and women can suffer from it. Although hair loss and thinning of hair are primarily associated with old age, if you are unlucky in your twenties or thirties you may already have to deal with it. This is unfortunately mainly genetically determined. In addition to genetic factors, many other things can also influence the condition of the hair. Hormone management, stress, lifestyle and nutrition also play a role. In women, a pregnancy can have a great effect on the condition of the hair and scalp.

Precisely because it is a problem that is shared by so many people, science pays a lot of attention to hair loss and thinning hair. It is known for a number of ingredients that if you regularly treat your hair with it, hair loss and thinning can be greatly reduced. That way you will enjoy your full hair for longer. These ingredients are usually used in shampoos, conditioners and hair masks. Both natural and chemical agents are used for this.

Nuviante: a remedy for hair loss and for a better condition of the hair

Nuviante is one of the means that can be used in the fight against hair loss and a decreasing condition of the scalp hair. Use is made of a combination of DHT blockers, vegetable substances and tested ingredients for a fuller and thicker hair.
It strengthens the hair follicles
It vitalizes the hair
It ensures proper moisture balance for the scalp

Strengthen the hair follicles

The hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) plays an important role in hair loss. This is because it is a hormone that causes hair follicles to shrink so that the hair cycle is significantly shortened. In the long run, it may even cause the hair follicles to be no longer able to produce viable hair. For those who suffer from hair loss, DHT is often the main culprit. Nuviante ensures that a blockage is placed between the dihydrotestosterone and the hair follicles and hair follicles, so that it can no longer negatively influence hair growth. At the same time it provides the scalp with essential proteins for healthy hair growth.

Vitalize the hair

Before one is confronted with hair loss, one usually sees the hair thinning. Nuviante contributes to vitalising the head hair and getting thicker and fuller. The bioactive substances in Nuviante can thus strengthen the hair from within. In addition, it ensures better circulation of the scalp so that nutrients can reach the hair follicles better.

Taking care of the moisture balance for the scalp

For a healthy, good head of hair, a healthy scalp is essential. Many people do not realize that the moisture balance of the scalp plays an important role in this. The skin must not be too dry or too moist. Nuviante contributes to monitoring the correct moisture balance for the scalp. It contains soothing ingredients that prevent irritation and give annoying problems such as dandruff and flaking no chance.

Availability

In 2019, hair care products based on Nuviante are only available from the Foligain brand . This brand offers various shampoos, conditioners and lotions, both specifically for men and specifically for women. The products are available separately, but also in test sets that contain a small package of shampoo, conditioner and lotion.

Baldness with round, bald spots on scalp

With alopecia areata, inflammation develops around the hair roots. Attacking hair loss (baldness) is usually the only symptom of this hair follicle inflammation (folliculitis). A few patients experience burning and itching or feeling on the head. Pain, a feeling of sickness or other symptoms do not normally occur with alopecia areata. Usually one or two hair bunches first fall out, often on the scalp. Sometimes this also occurs in the beard, in the eyebrows, under the armpits, on the genitals (pubic hair) or on the arms or legs. The hair patches that have fallen off the head are smooth, round or oval in shape and peach. The hair roots are still present and visible in the bare hair areas. At the edges of a bald spot there are hairs that have the appearance of an exclamation mark. With alopecia totalis, total hair loss often occurs within six months after the first symptoms have started.

Nails

Also nail anomalies sometimes occur. For example, a patient with Alopecia areata sometimes experiences to leukonychie (white nails), or to well nails (pitting of the nails).

A blood test excludes other disorders

Often the hair disease can be clearly identified on the basis of the external characteristics. If the doctor doubts, he performs a scalp biopsy. He then removes a piece of tissue from the scalp and has it examined microscopically to ensure that the patient does not suffer from another hair disorder. In addition, various blood tests are possible. This is necessary to detect any autoimmune disorders and thyroid abnormalities.

Therapy

The hair often grows back within a few months without treatment. This does not apply when the hair loss is very widespread. The doctor may prescribe medication that the patient applies to the skin. Another treatment consists of a steroid injection under the skin surface. Corticosteroids are, after all, strong, anti-inflammatory drugs that suppress the inflammation of the hair roots. Furthermore, ultraviolet light therapy is a solution for some patients. Other patients benefit from a wig to hide the areas of hair loss.

Prognosis is usually good

Normally the hair grows back completely after the inflammation has disappeared, but it is possible that this is then in the form of white or gray hairis. Often it takes several months before the hair starts to grow back. But in about 10% of patients, hair growth does not happen again. This is especially the case in patients where the condition has started at a very young age, when the alopecia is chronic, when the condition is very widespread and also when the patient is suffering from eczema. Patients with abnormal color, shape, texture, or thickness of fingernails or toenails also have poorer prospects for hair regrowth. In addition to the physical characteristics of the disease, alopecia areata sometimes leads to social isolation, shame and an unattractive feeling.

Complications

The head hair sometimes falls out completely. The hair condition sometimes also comes back, with or without treatment. This is unpredictable.
