Did you know roughly one in five people will deal with hair loss? While hair loss and hair thinning are more common in men, there are many women who also experience hair loss. The causes for hair loss or changes in the density of your hair growth are many and varied, but if you want to get a head start and grow new, stronger hair, it might be time to consider treatment systems like Nutrafol. At Bel Viso Medical Spa in East Greenwich, RI, we believe this dermatologist-approved brand of hair regrowth supplements and serums can rejuvenate your hair health.
Does Nutrafol Grow New Hair?
First and foremost, is Nutrafol an effective brand of hair growth products? According to an IQVA ProVoice survey conducted in the last 21 months, this brand is the top-rated brand of supplements for hair regrowth among dermatologists across the nation. Nutrafol is clinically proven to grow new hair, strong hair, and healthy hair for people who are facing excessive shedding, hair thinning, and certain types of hair loss.
So, how does this brand of supplements work? Some hair loss is caused by imbalances in the nutrients in your body. By using supplements with amino acids, protein, and stress-blockers, you can support healthy follicle growth so you can growth healthy hair and restore the fullness of your hair density. There are several systems that are designed to target the root cause of your hair loss or hair thinning, including:
Men’s Hair Growth Pack
Men experience hair loss at higher rates than women, usually caused by a combination of genetic markers and overactive DHT, which shrinks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out more quickly. The Men’s Hair Growth Pack is formulated with saw palmetto to combat hair thinning by preventing testosterone to DHT conversion, tocotrienol complex to improve hair density, and sensoril ashwagandha to balance stress hormones.
Women’s Hair Growth Pack
Women facing hair loss typically have fewer treatment options than men, so it can be especially challenging to treat hair thinning. The Women’s Hair Growth Pack is formulated with sensoril ashwagandha, tocotrienol complex, and marine collagen to provide the hair with amino acids to build stronger keratin for the hair.
Stress Adaptogen MD Booster
If stress, either physical or emotional, is the root cause of your hair loss, then preventing excessive cortisol levels in the body may improve the efficacy of your hair growth supplements. This booster targets hair thinning by lowering cortisol with adaptogens. Some ingredients include sensoril ashwagandha extract and holy basil extract.
Hairbiotic MD Booster
Sometimes your gut and nutritional health are the primary cause of your hair loss. With 10 strains of hair-supporting probiotics, this booster improves your gut microbiome to reduce inflammation, support your immune system, and increase the efficacy of other supplements.
If you want to increase the density or the thickness of individual strands as you grow new hair, then scalp support with the Growth Activator may also be helpful. This serum works to boost cellular renewal so you can grow thicker and stronger hair from the inside out.
Why Should You Try Nutrafol?
Unlike some other treatments for hair loss or hair thinning, this brand of supplements does not use any hormones to reverse the hair loss cycle. Depending on the cause of your hair loss, some physicians like to use androgen blockers to prevent DHT conversion, but this can have significant impacts on your overall health, especially for women. These supplement systems, however, use natural high-quality ingredients to restore your hair growth cycle.
Another upside of these supplements is the fact that they are easy to work into your daily routine. Treatments like Rogaine for men and women require application twice a day with messy foam and at-home remedies may also be difficult to manage. With these supplement systems, however, all you need to do is take the supplement dosage each day and apply certain serums once a day.
How Effective Are These Systems?
Clinical studies have assessed the efficacy of these supplement systems. For men, 83% saw visible improvement in their hair quality and 72% saw more hair and scalp coverage after six months of use. For women, 86% saw improved hair growth and 84% saw thicker, stronger, and softer hair in three to six months.
How Long Until You Will See Results?
When it comes to growing your hair back, patience is key. While your skin may respond to treatments within only a few weeks, reversing hair loss or excessive shedding can take several weeks or months. This is for two reasons. The first is that hair growth is innately slow since most people will only grow about 1/2 inch each month. The second reason will depend on the cause of your hair loss, thinning, or shedding.
Some hair loss or thinning is associated with hormonal changes, which can take time to reverse. Other diet-related hair loss means you will have to restore the nutrient balance in your body to grow new, healthy, fuller hair. Similarly, rejuvenating the follicles in your scalp will take time, particularly if the cause of your hair loss or thinning is complicated, such as related to health or hormonal changes.
Many people will start to see the initial results of this treatment within about two to three months after they start the supplement system. Some people will notice less hair shedding around two months after using Nutrafol, along with new hair growth by three months.
Some people may not see the final results of this treatment for up to 12 months. It will take several months to reverse the cause of your hair thinning and several more months to grow back healthy hair in all active follicles. About a year after you start your treatment system, you will be able to see significant improvements in the health and density of your hair.
What Is the Difference Between Hair Loss and Hair Shedding?
To put it simply, hair loss is when follicles are no longer capable of supporting healthy hair, while hair shedding is the normal loss of hair each day. For most people, it’s perfectly natural to lose about 50 to 100 strands of hair a day; on days where you wash your hair, you may notice hair shedding up to 150 to 200 strands. However, losing 200 strands a day is considered excessive shedding and is an early sign of hair loss.
What Is Hair Thinning?
Hair thinning is caused by a combination of excessive shedding and hormonal changes that cause the individual thickness of your hair to be thinner. Hair thinning doesn’t necessarily mean hair loss, even if you can see more of your scalp because your individual strands are thinner than before. That said, some hair thinning is a sign of hair loss, so it’s always best to consult a dermatologist.
Why Does Hair Loss Occur?
There are several factors that may cause hair loss and many of those factors are beyond your control. For example, some men have a genetic predisposition to convert more testosterone into DHT and even some women are more likely to convert androgen into DHT thanks to genetics, diet, or stress. Stress such as chronic emotional stress or physical illness is also a leading cause of hair loss.
For some, hair loss and hair thinning are associated with dietary and hormonal changes. Although losing weight is generally healthy, rapid or extreme weight loss can alter the balance of hormones and nutrients in your body, which leads to hair loss. Your diet, your environment, your hair products, and your hair habits can also cause hair loss and hair thinning.
Who Are Good Candidates?
The ideal candidates for Nutrafol supplements are people who are experiencing early hair loss and hair thinning. Candidates for these supplements should verify the cause of their hair loss with a dermatologist through special exams and labs. By understanding the root cause of your hair loss, your dermatologist can then recommend the hair growth system ideal for your needs.
