Anti-fall hair lotions: when and how do they work?

Hair fall is a problem that affects both men and women. It can be pathological, and it can progressively lead to baldness. However, it can also be physiological and have no serious consequences in the long term.

In the latter case, hair loss may happen in some seasons, such as spring and winter. Instead, during the other months of the year your hair should regrow.

Regardless of its nature, this condition can create anxiety and discomfort. That is why lately more and more people resort to techniques and treatments to fight this problem: one of the most efficient one is anti-fall lotion.

How to understand if your hair fall is physiological or pathological

As already mentioned, hair fall may be physiological or pathological, behaving differently.

As we know, the hair life cycle can last from two to six years. It consists of three phases: the first one is when hair born, grow and the bulbs are strong and healthy (anagen phase). During the second stage, hair stops growing and the bulbs appear dry and undernourished (catagen phase). In the last phase, hair shrivels and detaches from the scalp. From this moment on, hair follicles begin to produce other hair (telogen phase).

In physiological hair fall, this process will simply be quicker, as the telogen phase will be faster. Simply said, the hair fall faster than its regrowth. However, on the long term our hair has remained almost unchanged. This type of hair fall can be caused by many reasons: stress, season change, and traumas.

In case of pathological hair fall, instead, falling hair is replaced by new anagens. However, life cycle after life cycle, hair becomes more and more thin, weak and discolored. This is the case of alopecia. If you suffer from this disease, in the long term you will notice the advancing of baldness. It can also be accompanied by problems on your scalp, such as dandruff or seborrheic dermatitis.

The most appropriate thing to do if you suffer from hair loss is seeing an expert. You can also have your hair examined in order to understand and analyze its life cycle.

What are the main causes of hair fall?

Regardless of its nature, the causes of hair fall may be many. It could be hereditary or due to hormonal imbalances, eating disorders, vitamin deficiencies, and other factors. However, two of the most frequent causes are stress and seasonal changes.

Seasonal hair fall

Hair fall increases during spring and winter.

According to some theories, this disease is closely linked to mammals typical molting (genetic causes). However, others say it may be caused by a hormonal imbalance due to an alteration of the relations between day and night. Other theories state hair loss may be due to stress caused by returning to our lives after a holiday.

However, the most accepted theory is based on the fact that any worsening or improvements of the scalp occur over a period of three months.

During summer, the sunlight exposure leads to an accumulation of free radicals in the skin that can damage  hair bulbs. After 90 days, during fall, this can result in scalp inflammation and hair fall.

A similar thing happens at the end of winter, when the scalp is especially tried from cold. This leads to a reduction of the diameter of blood vessels (vasoconstriction) and less blood supply for the skin.

Hair fall due to stress

Science did not confirm any links between stress and hair fall. However, some studies suggested the two things might be connected.

Our organism reacts to stress by stimulating the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland, causing the release of corticotropin hormones. Once in the bloodstream, this hormones reach hair cells (keratinocytes, fibroblasts, and others).

The symptoms of this type of hair loss may differ in men and women. The only common sign is an excessive production of sebum. However, women will see their hair getting less thick, especially on their forehead. Instead, men will experience receding hairlines on their forehead and temples.

What anti-fall hair lotions to use and when?

As previously mentioned, a remedy against hair fall could be anti-fall lotions.

They act during the catagen phase of the hair life cycle, affecting only the hair or the bulbs which will soon detach. Such lotions have no effect on hair during the anagen or telogen phases.

Experts recommend an excellent Italian anti-fall hair lotion: Foltina Plus of the Natural Fit line. Both men and women can use it.

Its action is guaranteed by the many 100% natural active ingredients it contains, such as arginine, saw palmetto, and fenugreek. Foltina Plus enhances fast hair regrowth , stimulating the hair bulbs. In this way, the lotion fights receding hairlines, and makes hair thicker.

You can apply this product on any type of hair: dry, frizzy, dyed, short, long, greasy and others.

In addition, this lotion is very easy to use: all you have to do is spraying the product on the area affected by fall and massage it until absorbed.

Remember that in order to benefit from its actions, you do not have to shampoo after the treatment. However, we believe you will not need to wash your hair, since Foltina Plus does not make your hair or skin greasy.
