Hair Loss Treatment

Your Options At OSK 1

It is important to remember, that your hair is essentially a reflection of what is happening within your body “a thermometer of your health”

We have put together information that we have sourced to help you understand the growth of your hair and why hair loss occurs.

Hair is made of proteins called keratin. This is the same kind of protein that make up our nails and the outer layer of the skin. Each strand of hair is made up of three layers.

  1. A central core – the medulla (which is sometimes absent in finer hairs)
  2. The middle layer  – cortex, the cortex provides strength and both colour and the texture of the hair.
  3. The outermost layer – cuticle, the cuticle is thin and colourless and serves as a protector of the cortex.

Below the surface of the skin is the hair root, which is enclosed within a hair follicle. At the base of the hair follicle is the dermal papilla.

The dermal papilla is fed by the bloodstream, which carries nourishment to produce new hair.

The growth of your hair depends on your age, gender, hair colour, and ethnic background. Scalp hair grows on average of 1cm per month.

Hair loss or dull, dry hair is often the first indicator to a developing internal unbalance.

Sudden shock, prolonged stress, food poisoning, surgical/dental procedures, sudden weight loss/dietary changes, commencing/ceasing certain medications, or following childbirth are some of the events that may cause a percentage of hair to fall out.

2 – 3 months after any of these experiences the hair will begin to shed abruptly and be lost in excessive amounts for about 2 – 3 months before settling back down.

This hair loss is, called ‘temporary self-correcting’. When hair loss is subtle, slowly thinning out over many months, the underlying cause can be a nutritional, metabolic and/or hormonal disturbance.
