Initially, it is important to determine your hair type, as otherwise there is a risk to aggravate their condition. The types of hair are divided into dry, normal, oily and mixed:
- Dry hair do not reflect light, so that they look dull, lacking luster. They are easily torn, confused, difficult to comb, split at the ends. Often, dry hair – are the result of improper care, rather than a consequence of the reduced activity of the sebaceous glands;
- Normal hair type reflect light very well, shimmer in the sun. If your hair are elastic, barely split a the ends, easy to apply and comb, have a live view and retain these qualities for a few days after shampooing, then you competently and properly care for them with suitable means to you and your hair are healthy;
- Oily hair have a characteristic dull luster, after a short time after washing stick together and start to look dirty, untidy. Oiliness of hair depends on the activity of the sebaceous glands of the scalp, which in turn is a purely personal and laid genetically. To some extent the amount of sebum produced depends on the type and amount of food ingested carbohydrates (primarily) and fats.
Mixed hair type -are usually long hair – greasy at the roots and dry at the ends, because they are insufficiently lubricated with grease throughout. The ends of this type of hair, without getting the necessary lubrication, often split. They need a combined treatment with the help of various special funds and adjusted diet.
What includes the right hair treatment? Of the entire spectrum of hair treatment procedures washing is the most important component because it is intended as a hygienic and cosmetic purpose. For healthy hair, not damaged and depleted, correct and timely washing is a minimal adequate treatment procedure.
The question about the frequency of washing is purely individual: from everyday hair washing to 1 time in 8-10 days. The rule here is one - you need to wash your hair as often as you need it. For those who daily uses the hair styling products (gels, mousses, varnishes), it is recommended to wash your hair every day, because these means aggravate hair that badly affects their quality. For daily washing you should use a mild shampoos, specifically made for this purpose.
Do not wash your hair in too hot or too cold water: the optimal water temperature should be 35-45 C. The oilier is your hair, the cooler should the water be. Also, do not apply shampoo on a dry hair: first you need to wet your hair with water, then pouring some shampoo on your palm, then slowly and gently rub it into the scalp, rinse your hair only with formed foam, be careful not to rub them strongly so you don’t damage the hair’s cuticle and the rod. You should soap your hair with foam at least twice, due to the fact that the first soaping of your hair removes a fractions of dirt, dust and sebum, and the therapeutic effect of shampoo comes only at its secondary soaping. Do not forget that after using the shampoo or other hair products your hair must be thoroughly washed and rinsed with water, so no elements of detergents remain on the surface of hair.
It is believed the hair that were well combed before washing, will be better combed after. It is recommended that short hair should be combed from the roots, and long - from the ends, gradually moving to the roots. It is better not to comb wet hair, and if it is necessary, not with a metal combs, but with plastic or wood combs. The best way for drying your hair is a natural way for drying of hair, and sometimes with warm towels. Often use a hair dryer (blow dryer) is not recommended, but if your hair requires styling with hair dryer, it should be used with cold drying mode, and the dryer should be held at a distance of no less than 40 cm from the head.
What you need to know when choosing the means to wash your hair?
Firstly, that is why for this purpose is strictly unsuitable: it completely destroys the protective water-lipid emulsion film from the hair and the scalp. Hair after washing with soap become overly dry, damaged, hard to comb, and duller looking. In order not to cause such damage to hair, while still wash them from the accumulated sebum, dust, flaking cells, you should use shampoos: they have slightly lower acidic environment, a natural for our skin and hair, and are noticeably softer than soap.
To select a shampoo, use a simple principle: carefully read the text on the package and use the shampoo that is designed for your hair type, and then after you start using shampoo analyze the results. Positive results using the shampoo can be considered clean hair, no fat on them, shine after drying, easy combing and obedience, and no irritation of the scalp. To understand that this shampoo does not suit you, you need only one or two applications, but to come to the conclusion that this shampoo is just for you - you must use it regularly for at least several weeks. In addition, a good shampoo should remove static electricity from the hair, and most importantly – it should compensate for protein, moisture and nutrients. The statement that from time to time you need to change shampoo is - a myth, if you picked yourself a shampoo that you are completely satisfied with, you should change shampoo only in the case of changes in the state of your hair. After using the shampoo it is recommended you put conditioner on your hair. It performs several functions: it facilitates drying and combing, gives the hair elasticity. It is better to use a shampoo and conditioner of one brand - they correspond to each other in composition, and rinse action as efficiently complements the action of shampoo. The combination of shampoo and a conditioner of different brands does not bring benefits to hair and in some cases can even lead to allergic reactions. Often found in shampoo and conditioner 2 in 1, but this option should be used during traveling: use a separate conditioner for more effect. To repair damaged hair there are special means for rapid treatment - they are smooth hair out, have a regenerating and nourishing effect on the hair follicles and are designed for quick and easy restoration action. For a longer, fuller and deeper therapeutic effect you should use masks - they are applied on the hair for 15-20 minutes 1-2 times a week.
It is important to understand that hair care or treatment, as well as care of any other part of the body - is a lifelong activity. You cannot give your hair treatment for a month or two, and then forget about it, hoping that they are now will be healthy until the end of life. Be consistent and do not leave your hair without a treatment.
Hair consists of a rod, which rises above the level of the skin, and root, which is also called the hair follicle. Lower extended part of the root is called the root (the bulb), at the expense of her hair grows. In the papilla of the hair follicle juts out, nerve fibers and blood vessels connects to that and nourish the hair.
The longevity of hair varies from a few months to 4 years or more. Hair follicles in humans begin to develop already in the 3rd month of fetal development. In the course of it’s existence, each hair follicle goes through several repetitive cycles of life. There are three main phases of hair growth: growth phase (anagen), the stabilization phase (catagen), and resting phase (telogen).
Anagen - a phase when the hair follicle produces hair. In this phase, which lasts for several years, is consists of usually 85% of hair follicles.
Catagen - this phase, is the degradation of the follicle, hair growth stops and the root of the hair bulb acquires a characteristic shape - this phase lasts a few weeks. Normally, in a healthy person it is only 1% of the hair are in this phase.
In telogenic phase, hair is separated from the root and slowly moves to the surface of the skin - these hair fall out during combing and shampooing. At this phase, is approximately 14% of the hair.
Duration of phases depends on the age, sex and region of human skin, where this follicle is situated. And also depends on external and internal environment factors, and many physiological processes that take place in the body. All this leads to significant changes in the state of the scalp.
• a lack of zinc and iron in the body;
• hormonal changes (including during pregnancy and lactation);
• chronic diseases;
• high levels of stress;
• diet or malnutrition
Stress, frequent use of alcohol, active and passive smoking leads to regular spasms of blood vessels that are responsible for blood circulation and nutrition of hair, and as a result, the hair starts to fall out. Also affects of the wrong choice of shampoo, conditioner, masks and other means of hair care products that disrupt the hair structure, making them brittle, which again leads to hair loss.
Regardless of the reason, if the hair began to fall out and do not recover, you should contact the health center «HAIR LINE»
Types of Hair Loss
To hair loss treatment to be effective, you need to determine what type it is. To date trichologists distinguish 4 types of hair loss (alopecia below):
Androgenic alopecia - hair loss is caused by excessive content of male sex hormones. In this case, thinning hair in men usually starts from the front hairline and advances to the crown, in women there is a progressive thinning and thinning hair all over the head. Women suffering from androgenic alopecia usually have other hormonal symptoms - excessive hair growth on the face, and often acne and oily seborrhea, but the appearance of masculine traits of body structure is rare.
Alopecia areata - the most common hair loss, which manifests itself in the form of a sudden patches of hair loss on the scalp. It may even turn into a complete loss of hair on the head, rarely accompanied by loss of eyelashes and eyebrows, the hair on the body. Hair with alopecia areata act as if they live their own lives, leaving the head and coming back when they please. A man who was completely bald for years, can grow normal hair in just a month, and then lose them again.
In the early stages of the disease on the edge of the infected area observed spiky hair. But the primary diagnosis is a test for the strength of the hair. If your hair is easily pulled out, then the disease is in an active phase and there will be further loss of hair. In this case, an urgent need to start fighting the problem exists.
Diffuse alopecia is caused by age-related changes that occur in the body. Characterized by the loss on the scalp when the skin is unaffected. Occurs in 3-4 months, rarely 5-6, after physical or emotional stress. The degree of damage to the hair follicles at diffuse alopecia depends on the duration and intensity of precipitating factors (stress, recovering from illness, surgery, and long-term use of drugs).
Seasonal hair loss - caused by physical, chemical or thermal effects on the hair, change of climate, effects of UV rays, lack of vitamins, minerals and trace elements as a result of a long and strict diets and unbalanced diet.
Every day we lose 60 to 100 hairs, but do not notice this if they are quickly recovered. Sometimes hair fall out faster than they grow, this phenomenon is called the hair loss. If on a background of overall good health, massive hair loss occurs during washing or combing, and this is evident in a lot of hair on clothes, or after sleeping on the pillow remain quite a lot of hair - you must act. It is necessary to distinguish between hair loss due to breakage and damage (more common among owners of dry type of hair), as well as loss of hair with the root (bulb). In both cases, a proper hair treatment is needed, but if the hair fall out with the root (bulb) recommend that you immediately contact the Health Center Hair «HAIRLINE» for identification of reasons for hair loss.
To get started you have to analyze the situation, maybe you panic without reason. On average a person loses from 40 to 100 hairs a day. The life of any hair has three stages: initiation and formation of the bulb; the formation of the hair; wilting of the bulb and hair loss. If this process is broken by something, hair loss becomes more significant, which may lead to partial baldness. What are the reasons for this kind of failure in the process?
Reason One: hormone. There is a hormone dihydrotestosterone, which can accumulate in the upper head layer. This hormone is the cause of an excessive loss of hair. Men accumulate this hormone faster, so male baldness occurs much more often than female. Elevated levels of dihydrotestosterone is connected to heredity. And if your ancestors in the male line with age were troubled with hair loss, then you are likely to be troubled with hair loss as well. With heredity, as you know it is very hard to fight. However, nowadays there are still some methods developed in South Korea and presented in the Republic of Kazakhstan by the Center for hair health «HAIRLINE».
For women increased hair loss is caused by various hormonal changes associated with the start of sexual activity, with a period after pregnancy, menopause etc.
In cases of some diseases, hair loss can also be quite large, such as tumors of the ovaries, adrenal cortex diseases, diabetes, various endocrine disorders and others.
The second reason: chemical. Pollution, harmful emissions into the atmosphere, increased radiation can induce significant problems with hair. On the development of hair follicles adversely affects the reception of various drugs, mainly antibiotics and hormonal agents. Therefore, give up the rule that during any ailment, even very small, you treat it with pills. And taking large amount of drugs without the doctor’s prescriptions is not safe at all.
Reason number three: stress. Stress at work, in the family - all this, of course, does not add to the health of our hair. Do not let emotions take over. Fight with stress in all possible ways. Stress is insidious because not only the fact that it undermines our health, but also the fact that makes us less beautiful, "rewarding" us with hair loss, gray hair and wrinkles on our face.
Reason Four: water quality. As you know, our tap water can be not only tough, but also with a touch of many harmful substances that negatively affect the density of our hair. For example, one of our friends found a bundle of hair on the comb after every hair wash. The girl was already gathered to blow the whistle, but took a vacation on the south, where her hair loss suddenly stopped. Since she returned home, she washes her head with purified water by the South Korean technology. And since then she doesn’t know any problems with her hair. It would’ve been great if all the causes of hair loss were simply resolved as this problem.
Other causes of increased hair loss include: poor diet, insufficient blood supply to the scalp, improper hair treatment, trihopathy (diseases of the hair) and other.
Many women are concerned about hair loss after childbirth? Half of young mothers faced with such a problem. And everyone wants to know why hair falls out and how to stop this process?
In ordinary man, about 90% of all hair is constantly growing, and only 10% are in rest. After 2-3 -month hair that were in rest drop out, and in their place the new hair start to grow. But why hair loss after childbirth begins so abundant? In order to understand this, it is necessary to determine the cause of hair loss after childbirth
Hair loss after childbirth. Reasons.
1. Hormonal changes
Many women notice that during pregnancy the condition of their hair starts to improve, they barely fall out and look much better and healthier. All this is due to the fact that the anti-aging process occurs in the body. Body accumulates nutrients and vitamins. Hormones of a pregnant woman have this beneficial effect on the hair. Estrogen levels begin to increase in the blood, which promotes cell division in hair follicles. Due to the hair’s increased length of growth and life cycle, hair stop falling out. Hairstyle becomes lusher. Hair loss after childbirth begins from 1 to 5 months due to the fact that hormones of woman come back to normal state, levels of hormones start to reduce, estrogen ceases to stimulate growth and hair start to fall out. Up to 30% of hair might fall out.
2. Reduction of nutrients, microelements
When mom starts to breastfeed her child, her body's loses minerals and nutrients. Due to the shortage of substances such as calcium, iron, magnesium, vitamin D, hair loss begins after birth. Blood loss during childbirth, especially after caesarean section also affects the reduction of nutrients. At this level iron is reduced in the blood, resulting in an anemia, deficiency of vitamin B and C and zinc. It could also provoke hair loss after childbirth
3. Lack of sleep and stress.
After the baby is born there is a whole bunch of problems that fall on the shoulders of mothers. Additional stress, overwork, lack of sleep and anxiety. All of these factors affect the whole body including hair. They begin to wilt and fall out. To get rid of hair loss after childbirth due to lack of sleep, you need to spend more time for rest and sleep. If you didn’t sleep at night, you can go to sleep during the day with the baby.
Proper nutrition of women also has effect on hair loss after childbirth. Fresh and natural products should be in the diet of women for proper supply of the hair. Do not use salted, pickled products.
The diet of lactating mothers should be
- Meat: beef, turkey, lean pork, rabbit and fish.

Hair loss in men (alopecia) affects up to 30 percent of men aged 30 years and 50 percent of men aged 50 years. Hair may start to disappear at any time. Hair loss in some men begins in late adolescence, but most of the time only after 30 years.
Some men are not bothered by this process. Others have great emotional distress associated with a lack of self-confidence and sometimes depression.
Hair loss in men: reasons?
By far the most common cause of hair loss in men is androgenic alopecia, also known as "alopecia".
Heredity plays an important role in determining the causes of hair loss. As the scientists discovered great impact on heredity play chromosomes of the mother. This helps to explain why the pattern of hair loss is more similar to hair loss in maternal grandfather, than hair loss from father.
However, this is clearly not so, direct inheritance from the father of hair loss is also observed.
Gene that can affect hair loss in men should be dominant. This means that a person may have genes that may affect hair loss, but it does not mean that they will necessarily show itself causing hair loss. On how genes will show itself can affect the following factors: hormones, age, stress and other factors.
Men’s hair loss in is associated with the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), acting on the genetic susceptibility of scalp hair follicles, which causes them to become smaller and eventually disappear. This process is called "miniaturization".
Most sensitive to DHT hair follicles are the ones that situated in the front, top and crown of the scalp. This model is described by Norwood and usually begins with the recession of hairline at the temples and thinning of the crown. And can progress to total baldness, leaving only a wreath of hair on the back and sides of the head.
DHT is formed under the action of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase of testosterone, a hormone that defines sex characteristics in men. DHT causes hair loss in men by reducing the growth of hair or its complete stop, which leads to miniaturization (size reduction).
Every man starts to lose hair at a different age. But the hair does not fall out all at once, but gradually hair start thinning and every year man will have them less and less. Many paid attention that hair loss comes in alternating periods of slow and rapid hair loss and even stability. Many of the reasons why your hair is falling out quickly, then stopped falling out, is not fully known, but we know that with age, the total amount of a person's hair is usually reduced.
Even if there is a no genetic predisposition to baldness, with age many men have hair miniaturization. They become thinner, shorter, almost cease to grow and eventually disappear.
All of the adult patient’s entire scalp is exposed to the process of aging, so that even the donor area (hair transplants) is not really constant, the amount of hair will decrease with age any way.
Stress and hair loss in men.
Stress causes the adrenal glands to produce excessive amounts of cortisol - a stress hormone. High levels of cortisol degrades collagen, which leads to a reduction in bone density, and may also lead to hair loss. High and constant stress causes the adrenal glands to work too active due to the increased needs of the stress hormone, cortisol. Men also produce additional testosterone and adrenaline. Additional DHT is more testosterone which in turn can cause loss of hair in men.
Hair loss in men and thyroid imbalance.
Men’s hair loss is a common symptom of thyroid disease. Thyroid disease and hormonal imbalance is when the thyroid gland is not functioning properly, that causes the whole body to suffer. Before you start losing hair due to thyroid, you experience changes of the hair texture, they tend to become dry, rough and easy to get tangled. Facial and body hair do not grow well and do not look healthy. The very first symptom of thyroid gland disorder is thinning the outer edges of the eyebrows.
A balanced diet is the key to health. It is important that the body is getting enough essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients so our body works as it should. Men’s hair loss may be due to the shortage of protein, iron, zinc, and biotin. In addition to the shortage, if there is too much of certain nutrients, such as vitamin A or carotene it can also cause premature male baldness.
Men’s hair loss is a common side effect of many medications. Blood-thinning drugs (anticoagulants), antidepressants, beta-blockers, NSAIDs and vitamin prepared on the basis of (retinoids) can all lead to men’s hair loss. Chemotherapy also affects the hair, it leads to complete hair lose. However, after discontinuation of the drug taking hair follicles grow back.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important. Your body can not function at an optimal level, if you work hard, you do not sleep well, don’t get enough rest, do not exercise and eat properly, that is, eating at the wrong time and not enough. The situation gets worse if you smoke and drink.
Diseases that can cause men’s hair loss.
• Ringworm of the scalp (a fungal infection)
• Systemic lupus erythematosus (a disease where the body attacks its own healthy cells and tissues)
Many people wonder whether it is possible to stop premature graying of hair. Yes it is possible. To successfully get rid of gray hair it is important to determine the true cause of their appearance, but for those who do not have them yet, prevention cannot hurt.
The most common cause of graying hair is associated with the natural aging process. If a person is already over 40, it is normal at this age, at this age gray hair usually begin to appear. We cannot say that every person who reaches 40 years of age, must have gray hair, but in general, it happens that way.
Scientists have discovered that the accumulation of hydrogen peroxide is the main cause of gray hair. With age, the body decreases production of the enzyme catalase, which prevents hydrogen peroxide from destroying the melanin (it gives our hair and skin pigmentation, and gives color to the hair). All humans have melanin, but its amount in the hair may vary. The more melanin person has, the darker the hair. For example black and dark brown hair has more melanin than light brown hair.
As we age, melanocytes begin to produce less and less pigment. If these melanocytes stop producing new pigments, the hair will lose its color. Hair which have no melanin in it are actually transparent, but because of the refraction of the light, it seems to us that they are gray.
Other reasons that can cause graying of hair: deficiency of vitamins (eg vitamin B12), stress, thyroid gland imbalance, smoking, and heredity.
Many women during pregnancy and after childbirth have gray hair which associated primarily with stress, emotions, lack of nutrients and vitamins.
Premature graying of hair - causes
Why do we have gray hair at an early age? It is a myth that gray hair in men and women appear only with age. Gray hair in 20 years, and gray hair in 30 years is now called premature aging of hair and it is most likely to occur under the influence of heredity.
There are other causes of premature graying like stress, anxiety, depression, and other diseases such as typhoid. Gray hair may appear as the result of excessive consumption of tea, coffee, alcohol, fatty foods, spices and acidic foods. Deficiency of nutrients in the body also leads to premature graying of hair. Some medicines also can lead to discoloration of hair at an early age.
Believe it or not, there are some people who have gray hair due to vitamin deficiency. It is very rare, but still happens. The reason is very easy to identify. Since, in addition to hair graying, there are other side effects that are more noticeable during acute vitamin deficiency. For example, because of the shortage of vitamin B, you may experience chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, anxiety and more.
