The dangers of stress!

Handling stress is never easy, whether it is work related anxiety caused by difficulties in the office, arguing with a partner at home, or most commonly, worrying over a lack of money.

 

Work place stress has been in the headlines recently after the Office of National Statistics revealed that men are rapidly narrowing the gap on women in longevity. Yes, that’s right – whilst women have always historically outlived men (on average, of course) that gap is now closing.

 

This has been largely put down to the increase in the number of women who are now focusing on fast-paced and challenging careers that ultimately lead to a lot of stress. Of course, feeling anxious and stressed is not good for your health, but it also leads to a number of other bad habits which have a hugely detrimental effect, like excessive drinking or smoking.

 

An ONS commentary said: “The general narrowing of the gap between male and female mortality rates can be explained by a number of reasons including improvements in male health leading to a rise in male life expectancy which has increased at a greater rate than for females. Increases in women entering the labour force over the last 50 years are considered to have had an impact on levels of stress, smoking and drinking, leading to changes in the health of females.”

 

The rise in stress levels can have a number of knock-on effects, including hair loss. Earlier this week, I read a news story that claimed Kim Kardashian was suffering from hair loss as a result of stress. This was also the case for Twilight star Kristen Stewart last year after she split with Robert Pattinson.

 

Of course, it is very hard to make yourself feel relaxed when you’re suffering from stress, and signs of hair loss are only going to lead to further anxiety. However, there are a number of ways to improve your hair’s vitality. Firstly, I recommend a healthy, protein-focused diet. Secondly, our Papilla HairStim Capsules not only contain AnaGain, but also a host of other B Vitamins, all designed to improve the health of your hair.

EYES ON THE PRIZE!

There is a modern day perception that the majority of men are oglers that are more interested in breasts and bums than beauty – however research has been conducted that suggests they are not as bad as you think!

 

Murine, who make eye drops, surveyed 1,000 men and 70% of them revealed that eyes were the first thing they gaze at when approaching a women or passing one in the street. A smile was second whilst breasts were third! They say men are from Mars and women are from Venus, but funnily enough women answered similarly to men and picked eyes too.

 

The top tens were as follows:

How men notice women:

1. Eyes

2. Smiles

3. Boobs

4. Hair

5. Weight

6. Legs

7. Dress sense

8. Bum

9. Height

10. Skin

 

How women notice men:

1. Eyes

2. Smiles

3. Height

4. Hair

5. Dress Sense

6. Weight

7. Skin

8. Face Shape

9. Bum

10. Nose

 

Commenting on the results, a spokesperson for Murine eye drops said: “Eyes usually tell us a lot about a person so we aren’t surprised that eyes are what draws us to the opposite sex.”

 

We’ve discussed this research at The Brighton Hair Loss Clinic over a cup of tea and we agree…. the eyes really are a window to the soul! That’s why we have expanded our online shop to include a range of amazing products from NutraLuxe that can bring your eyes to life.

 

If you suffer from sparse, slow growing eyelashes, The NutraLuxe Eyelash Enhancer can help. The Lash Enhancing Serum contains two Active Ingredients, both proven to stimulate growth. When both ingredients are used together, this helps the lashes reach their full potential in length, fullness, thickness and darkness. Meanwhile, the NutraLuxe Eyebrow Enhancer works in the same way to leave your eyebrows 50% thicker and fuller in just eight weeks.

 

These are just two of the many fantastic products we have available to help bring back that twinkle in your eyes. For more information on any of our products, call 01273 646500 or contact us online.

 

 

Food for Thought: Protein & Hair

Food for Thought: Protein & Hair

A news story caught my eye last week. Apparently, obesity is the new smoking in terms of the impact on health and to the cost of the NHS. This was according the NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens, who revealed that a quarter of adults – up from 15% 20 years ago – are obese. The article also explained that one-in-five children could be considered obese – which is a terrible statistic.

The old saying goes “you are what you eat” – and I believe more education is needed around the impact of food and what constitutes a healthy diet. The lack of knowledge surrounding different ingredients and nutrients, and the effect they can have on the body, is quite worrying.

Take protein for example – I wonder how many people know how vital protein is to ensuring the proper growth and function of the human body, including hair! There has been a lot of discussion about how much protein the average man or woman needs to consume per day – at present, it’s recommended that women need 46 grams whilst men need 56 grams.

I sit down with every new client that visits The Brighton Hair Loss Clinic to calculate how much protein they are consuming on an average week. Each hair cell on the human body is made from keratin, which is a form of protein. Therefore, it is vital to have a nutritious diet that includes a healthy amount of protein. If your body suffers from a lack of protein your hair will not have the building blocks to encourage hair growth.

Along with our FDA-approved hair products and our Low Level Laser Therapy, protein plays a key role in stopping further hair loss and stimulating new growth.

Hair today, gone tomorrow? …A Blog post from one of our clients

Hair today, gone tomorrow?

The year was 2006 when one of my good friends decided to make a sly dig that I was going bald. Funnily enough, I hadn’t noticed it until he very kindly pointed it out – do you sense the sarcasm? So, there I stood at the age of 23, locked in the bathroom, awkwardly trying to position two mirrors together so I could catch a glimpse of the thinning patch on my crown.  And there it was….

It wasn’t a ‘bald spot’ per se, but I could tell my hair wasn’t as thick as it used to be. My hairline at the front hadn’t begun to start crawling towards the back of my head, so it was actually difficult to initially tell. However, from that day I immediately lost a huge slice of personal confidence. Thankfully, over the next few years my hair loss was very gradual – I don’t even have a bald spot now – but overall I’m quite aware that it has thinned.

For the first few years I just tried to put it to the back of my mind, almost hoping that another individual in my group of friends would start losing theirs (a bit nasty, I know!) The problem is they haven’t, and I knew, although we are a tight knit group, being the very first to suffer from hair loss would result in a fair bit of ribbing – something I admittedly take too much to heart.

The big turning point for me was summer 2013. The countdown to my wedding day had reached the six-month stage and I really wanted to have a set of wedding photos I could be proud of. So when I joined David Lloyd gym (in order to shift a few pounds before the big day), I saw the advertisements for The Brighton Hair Loss Clinic. I booked in for a free consultation with Sophie and she explained how my treatment programme would work. It fit around my busy lifestyle, which consisted of the demands of a new job and wedding planning! The cost of the treatment was reasonable and I took the plunge.

The treatment has led to a gradual improvement in the health and strength of my hair, and I can notice that the thinning areas are closing. I’m now approaching the final few months at the Clinic and I can’t recommend it enough. However, the greatest benefit was the sense of relief. From my first session under the laser I knew the reversal process had begun. A huge weight was immediately lifted off my shoulders and I was able to channel my stress into different areas of my life – most notably, organising a wedding!

I definitely recommend The Brighton Hair Loss Clinic.

Tackle women’s hair loss with confidence

I stumbled across some recent statistics published by The Economist the other day! Yes, I know what you’re thinking but it is always good to do some swotting up during your lunch break! They reported that analysts at Goldman Sachs estimate the global beauty industry is growing at 7% a year.

 

Currently, the skin care industry is worth $24 billion, make-up is worth $18 billion and perfumes are worth $15 billion. However, what struck me most was that the hair-care products industry is worth a staggering $38 billion. That’s a lot of conditioner!

 

After giving it some thought, I wasn’t really surprised. The majority of people (including the guys) can spend hours every week looking to perfect their hairstyles. Many young women spend chunks of their wages on certain products whilst trying to emulate the Cheryl Cole, Katy Perry or Kim Kardashian look!

 

If you’re lucky enough to have a full head of hair, you should learn to love it the way it is, as there are more women out there than you’d imagine that don’t have that luxury. According to the NHS, eight million women in the UK will suffer from hair loss (medically known as alopecia) during some stage of their lives. This hair loss is also accompanied by a loss in confidence, which can drastically affect the way you lead your life.

 

At the Brighton Hair Loss Clinic, we provide free consultations to women who suffer from hair loss. We can educate you on the causes and provide you with a whole host of cost effective solutions in the strictest of confidence.

 

Feel free to get in touch with me, you can find my contact details here, and we can discuss how to tackle the problem. If you’re reading this entry from afar, then fear not, our online shop is stocked with the very latest clinically proven products.

 

10 of the most common Hair Loss Myths…

shutterstock_54967249
#1 Overexposure To The Sun Causes Hair Loss : FALSE BUT SOMEWHAT TRUE  Ultraviolet (UV) radiation can cause skin problems like accelerated aging and cancer, but it will not interrupt hair follicle function, says hair expert Dr Alan Bauman, of Bauman Medical Group in Florida. However, overexposure of hair fibres to UV radiation can in fact weaken the fibres, disrupt the cuticle and make them more prone to dullness, frizz and breakage.

#2 Pluck One Grey Hair And Two Grow Back  : FALSE The good news is pulling out grey hairs won’t make more grow back. The bad news is most people get grey hair as they age anyway.

#3 Over-Shampooing Can Make You Lose Hair : FALSE Many people may notice they shed daily after they shampoo or brush their hair. “Hair follicles cycle on and cycle off and repeat that process over the course of their life span,” says Bauman. Each day 100 to 200 hairs shed and these hair follicles are replaced by other hair follicles entering the growth phase.

#4 Standing On Your Head Makes Your Hair Grow :  FALSE It may sound funny, but this is a commonly heard myth. Bauman says hair loss is not a blood flow problem, but instead can be caused by other factors like age and genetics. “Even if increased blood flow helped hair growth, you could not stay in that position long enough to have an effect on the hair follicles,” Bauman says.

#5 Balding Is Linked To Old Age : TRUE Genetic male and female hair loss gets more common as we age. However, another type of hair loss called Alopecia Areata is common in children and young adults and could result in complete baldness.

#6 There’s No Cure For Baldness :  FALSE While there is no “miracle cure” there are certainly many treatments like government-approved drugs, laser therapy procedures or hair transplants.

#7 Higher Testosterone Linked To Hair Loss : FALSE “What you inherit is the sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone or DHT (a hormone and natural compound of testosterone) that can cause hair loss in men and some women,” Bauman says. If you’re male and you take testosterone, it could accelerate the hair loss process.

#8 Hair Loss Comes From The Mother’s Side : FALSE There are approximately 200 genes that regulate hair and hair growth, Bauman says.  “We know today that there are generally some genes from both sides of the family that play a role. Your mother’s father deserves some of the ‘blame’ but perhaps not all of it.”

#9 Hats Can Cause Baldness :  FALSE Hats do not cause hair loss in any way or form. Period.

#10 You Can Grow Back Dead Follicles :  FALSE Medications or laser therapy, for example, can help hair follicles grow thicker and healthier, but once the follicle is dead and gone, the only option for regrowth is a hair transplant.

The importance of a Healthy Scalp and the link to Hair Loss.

You probably see advertisements every day for Shampoos and Conditioners that will supposedly give you beautiful, healthy hair. If your hair is dry, there’s a conditioner for that… If it’s too oily, you can fix it with a shampoo… Got dandruff? You can take care of it in the shower!

But the truth is that the condition of your hair could have more to do with your Scalp than your realize – You can’t have healthy hair without a healthy scalp, and infact an unhealthy, inflamed scalp can actually prevent healthy hair growth.
Most Shampoos on the market contain Sulphates that can irritate the Scalp, the most common being Sodium Laureth Sulphate. Sodium Laureth Sulphate, or Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulphate (SLES), is an anionic detergent and surfactant found in many personal care products (soaps, shampoos, toothpaste etc.). SLES is an inexpensive and very effective foaming agent. SLES, SLS, ALS and Sodium Pareth Sulphate are surfactants that are used in many cosmetic products for their cleansing and emulsifying properties. They behave similarly to soap.

SLES is an irritant like many other detergents, with the irritation increasing with concentration. It has also been shown that SLES causes eye or skin irritation in experiments done on animals and humans. The related surfactant SLS is a known irritant, and research suggests that SLES can also cause irritation after extended exposure in some people.

At The Brighton Hair Loss Clinic we supply all of our clients with a Sulphate Free Shampoo: The Papilla Stimulating Shampoo. It is free from harsh ingredients such as Sodium Laureth Sulphate and will improve the condition of the Scalp in just a few weeks.
