The Roots of Hair Loss

GETTING TO THE ROOTS OF HAIR LOSS


The stats are incredible: More than 30 million women in the U.S. suffer from hair loss or hair thinning. So you are not alone. There are many hair loss causes, including genetics. Each single hair normally grows for 1,000 days with 25 cycles of growth in its lifetime. In cases of hereditary hair loss, increased levels of androgens in the follicle can lead to shorter cycles of growth as well as shorter and thinner strands. Also, there is a delay in growth of new hair replacing strands that are shed.

There are three different aspects to hair thinning and hair loss. We call them the 3 Ds: decreasing density, damage, and decreased hair diameter. Cosmetic treatment alone can't fully address these problems. Pantene Expert Collection Hair Regrowth Treatment for Women addresses decreasing density, and was formulated to treat hereditary hair loss in which the hair follicles shrink, leading to loss of hair.

When Minoxidil is applied to the scalp, it penetrates to the miniaturized follicles and stimulates them to grow.
