Healthy Hair: All You Need To Know
Stressed about your tresses? Healthy Hair is here to give your hair the support and nourishment it needs, via a careful selection of nature’s best hair-loving ingredients. To help you begin your journey to the mane of your dreams, we’ve answered some of the most important and frequently asked questions about Healthy Hair.
What exactly does Healthy Hair Do?
Healthy Hair is an assorted mix of plant products that has exclusive benefits for growth and regrowth of luscious hair. Our hair receives most of its nutrition and sustenance through the blood supply at its root, which is present below the upper layer of skin. Healthy Hair supplies the root with the necessary materials required to build strong hair and patch up irregularities, from within. Thus, it provides a steady availability of support and nutrition which ensures overall improvement in quality of hair.
How does it work?
To understand that, let’s understand the growth cycle of our hair!
Hair grows from the follicle, or root, underneath the skin. It is ‘fed’ by blood vessels at the base of the follicle, which give it the nourishment it needs to grow. Between starting to grow and falling out years later, each hair passes through four stages:
Anagen or growth phase. This is where follicles produce an entire hair shaft from tip to root.
Catagen or regression phase. This is where follicles reset.
Telogen or rest phase. This is where follicles prepare their stem cells so that they can receive the signal to start the next growth phase and make the new hair shaft.
Hair growth happens during anagen phase which lasts about 10 years on an average. It is during this phase that the hair requires most nutrition and is also most susceptible to damaging agents. Once damaged or aged, it reaches the catagen phase which lasts 10 days and then enters the shedding phase for a period of 10 weeks following which new hair is formed.
No amount of supplements and/or treatments can revive the hair once it has reached the final rest phase. Over time, the length of the anagen stage decreases as well. Therefore, the hair may become weaker and thinner after each cycle. That’s why it’s important to ensure your diet is rich in specific nutrients to maintain normal, healthy hair growth. Therefore, all efforts must be directed towards maintaining the hair in the growth phase.
And that is where Healthy Hair comes in. It is a combination of ingredients formulated to improve the circulation and along with it, give your hair roots the help it needs to keep the hair from regressing into the irreversible stage.
What’s in it?
Healthy Hair contains some of the most hair-loving ingredients Mother Nature has to offer, namely:
Amla contains phyto-nutrients, minerals and is a rich source of Vitamin C which produces collagen protein needed for strengthening the hair. It is also known to be a natural conditioner. It improves pigmentation and thus addresses the problem of greying hair.
Hibiscus replenishes natural oils, cleanses scalp, contains vitamin C and amino acids necessary for producing keratin. It also possesses astringent properties, which helps reduce excessive oil secretion of the scalp.
Bamboo shoot is rich in silica mineral which helps to strengthen your blood vessels and improve circulation. It is also supportive of the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans – the main agents responsible for retaining moisture.
Sunflower seeds promote the growth of our hair dramatically, thanks to its zinc and vitamin E content. Both of these components are capable of boosting blood circulation throughout our scalp, thereby stimulating the follicles to a large extent. The seeds are enriched with vitamin B6 or pyridoxine, which increases zinc absorption in our body and supplies much more oxygen to our scalp. These cause lesser hair fall. The essential fatty acids, especially omega-6 fatty acid, make sunflower seeds a good natural hair moisturizer. Moringa is rich in iron which treats the anemia and brings oxygen to the roots.
What makes Healthy Hair better than oils and shampoos?
The local application of oils, serums and shampoos work on the outer, exposed shaft and merely clean any dirt accumulation. Certain effective topical treatments also cover pores, prevent accumulation of excess sebum etc. However, they are temporary measures and require frequent application. These also have possible scalp side effects resulting from the chemicals used in them, such as detergents or lather forming agents.
We recommend using Healthy Hair in addition to your shampoo and hair treatments, as 2 ways is definitely better than one! It is pertinent to find the right kind of shampoo, conditioner and hair sera that may help you, for which you may consult a specialist.
How long does it take to see results?
The hair at the end of its cycle tends to fall out in a matter of 10 weeks. Following this event, in their place, new hair is formed and enters the growth phase of its cycle lasting about 10 years. In order to form new hair, old dying hair must fall out and make way for the new one. This process can be known to take 3-6 months on an average, depending on nutritional and environmental factors.
Healthy Hair helps in hastening the process, slightly, with its active agents. However, remember that the mix must be regularly consumed for a minimum period of 3 months to notice positive changes. It may take longer than 3 months too as each one’s body, hair and health is unique. Most of our customers have noticed a stark reduction in hair fall and improvement in quality of hair with 3 months of usage. We advise you to take the mix for as long as possible to continuously support hair growth.
When should I take it?
Whenever you like! One of the great things about Healthy Hair is its ease of usage. There are no rigid conditions as to when you should consume this mix. Our only recommendation is that you have it at the same time every day to make a habit of it.
How should I take it?
Healthy Hair can be taken with a glass of water, juice, or milk, as per your convenience.
Here’s a recipe to help you have some fun with this mix!
How much should I take?
We recommend taking about ¼ - ½ teaspoon every day, at a time of your convenience.
Does it help with hair-fall?
Approximately 50 to 150 hairs can fall out daily, this is considered to be normal hair shedding. If your observed hair-fall is within this category, you have nothing to worry about. However, if you notice a significantly larger amount of hair-loss, there can be various factors responsible.
Anemia – low haemoglobin commonly due to iron deficiency – is the primary cause of hair fall in women, whereas in men it is inherited balding. The other factors are recent occurrence of fever and/or any severe illness, pregnancy, trauma, poor nutrition, dandruff and other infections.
The components of Healthy Hair have been selected specifically to target the nutritional depletion factor and adequately replenish the same.Each of the ingredients independently works to provide strength to the roots, increase blood supply and aid in synthesis of necessary proteins to form healthy, lustrous, luscious hair. Healthy Hair has been proven to help most of our customers not only with a reduction in hair fall, but also increasing quantity and quality of hair.
However, excessive hair loss could also be a symptom of an underlying condition, which you will need to address first. We suggest consulting a trichologist. In case you already are, Healthy Hair can be used along with the medication prescribed by the doctor, if approved.
Does it help with premature greying of hair?
Yes. The Amla component present in the mix is a very common agent in hair colouring mixes and has been found with plenty of research to reduce early pigmentation. This is due to its antioxidant property that allows the hair to remain healthy enough to retain its dark pigment. However, since multiple factors like stress or scalp infections also play a role in causing greying, premature greying cannot be tackled without addressing these issues first.
We recommend taking the product for a minimum of 2 months to notice any changes with respect to reversal of greying.
Can it be mixed with other CosMix products?
Yes! In fact, we recommend using Healthy Hair along with our Feel Good Skin. Hair and skin form primary aesthetic components of our body and are always the first to take a hit in case of any stress endured by the body. It is also well known that, with great skin and hair comes great self-confidence. Both our products work together to provide your body with the support and nurturing it needs to help you look fabulous.
Is it safe for pregnant and lactating women?
Although there have been no reports of any effects, we do not recommend consumption of any herbal products during this time as a precautionary measure.
Is it safe for children?
Children are usually found to possess very few hair related issues owing to their young age. It is, therefore, not advised to be given to children, although it poses no risk to them. In case of any observed symptoms, kindly consult with your local dermatologist.
Does it have any side effects or allergic reactions?
Our customers have reported no occurrences of allergic reactions or side effects triggered by the consumption of our mix and have seen satisfying positive results throughout. However, please note that allergic reactions are based on genetic factors, and a physician must be consulted immediately should you notice any symptoms.
