How Does Nioxin Work? – Secrets Revealed

how does nioxin workSo there are a lot of Nioxin shampoo reviews, but not enough evidence on the shampoo and if it works for actual hair growth and regrowth in men or women.

The main problem that is discussed in almost every hair growth blog, is that many of these companies try to target temporary look, and not actual hair growth.

It is easy to make a hair thickener, without paying more – because hair catches anything, and enlarges temporarily; the problem with this is, that long term use of such products may cause more inflammation in the scalp – this not only can worsen hair condition in the longer term (although it may look nicer in the short term as the hair has just been coated with some substance all over it).

So the trick is that if you want to benefit temporarily, you can use it, but don’t use it that often – perhaps on special occasions where you want your hair to look extra puffy – even horse shampoo is known to do this puffy dense hair effect – but do not ever use them daily, as this will cause further hair loss in the long term – if you are looking for something that works, for actual regrowth, and long term hair growth – then please see our homepage with the top products listed and reviewed.

That said – products alone are never enough for hair growth. They should be used as tools; as you know, there is no full cure for hair growth – only tools to help growth when done in a regime – and we know regimes work for hair growth, but not one individual aspect or thing – such as diet or pill or shampoo – all those will contribute towards better hair growth and thicker hair growth – and even regrowth if you do enough regimes that are targeted towards your condition.

Hair thinning can be caused by many factors and they can be any or more from the following: 

– Stress, unstable Emotions: This leads to unbalanced hormone if these emotions are not resolved. It is the most understated aspect of human health, such as hair loss issues and others.

– Diet: Too much sugar (fat/carbs/sugar/natural sugars) all contribute towards inflammation. These foods will always be bad for hair growth, and anti-aging solutions.

– Exercise: Lack of exercise over time will cause health problems. This means vessels are not at their healthiest, and smaller capillaries will easily block (they can be unblocked by regular exercise, and also scalp massage for the head hair).

Remember to create a regime directed for your specific condition – if unsure, do all you know and can do and then consider buying some products that help you, such as the ones we have rated on the homepage, and other articles.

What you should really know about Medical Hair Shampoos

hair medical shampoo There are a lot of medical shampoos for hair loss that are emerging; from caffeine shampoos, minoxidil shampoos, dirt shampoos, vitamin shampoos and all kinds of stuff – but there are some things you need to be aware of if you are considering buying anything like this.

These shampoos are working on the requirement of the problem of thinning hair, and they often try to thicken hair shaft by making hair strand appear to be thicker, but in reality, this causes inflammation, hair loss, and faster hair fall occurrence in men and women.

For example, Mane N Tail Shampoo is a horse shampoo originally – but it is repackaged and sold as a hair growth shampoo for thicker hair – this is not true. It’s not possible. It only artificially makes the hair seem thicker, but long term will make the hair thinner, as these kinds of shampoos increase inflammation in the scalp – which is the main cause of hair thinning in the first place!

If you are looking for something that will work, or at least help towards stopping hair loss, then you need to consider being on a regime; this means taking supplements, exercises, scalp massages and only then, consider the hair growth products listed here on this site – rated and reviewed in terms of effectiveness and non-effectiveness.

You can still use the artificial enhancers, but be very careful – because you may not be able to tell if inflammation is increased, and this is the bigger problem – as many people think inflammation is always visible to the naked eye, or at least feelable, but this is untrue – inflammation can be cold, and also due to lack of circulation, which some medical shampoos make worse – also products like minoxidil won’t help in the long term, as it is not just about fattening up the vessels temporarily each day to keep the hair – it is about detoxifying the scalp, and giving enough blood circulation, anti-inflammatory products and exercise to help better quality hair growth.

How to Increase Blood Flow to Hair Follicles – Most Effective Methods

hair and circulation

There is a lot of evidence that clearly suggests that hair growth and quality of hair (as well as the lack of hair, ie balding) depends greatly on blood circulation on the scalp – It seems that people look for more evidence and trails by companies, but one thing has to be understood – these tests are not open to the public, as they are the individual research company’s property, they are rarely every fully produced to the public unless a product is launched (their own) which will support the product sales.

That said – there is a lot of evidence that suggests that improved scalp circulation will cause hair growth, regrowth and also grow better quality of hair – this is because minoxidil (do not buy) is one drug that was designed to open vessels for heart patients, but they found it helps (temporarily) when applied to the scalp – the problem is, it only does this short term, and you have to keep using it for life – if you stop or delay, then hair loss will only increase as the body gets used to it and needs it for circulation on the applied areas – so this is not a real solution to the hair problem.

The good news is – now that you know that circulation can increase or regrow hair – you also know that scalp massage will increase circulation, and over time, grow thicker and healthier hair.

A daily scalp massage of 15-20 minutes is the goal.

What if you don’t see enough results from the scalp massage?

Results vary to each individual – but great results can be achieved if you really want them – you just have to work a little harder to get them – and in case of not getting enough results, or wanting faster results, it is a good idea to combine them with other things, such as below:

– Anti inflammation: You need to prevent inflammation in the scalp. Many people have inflammation in their body – but when you have more of it, it causes diseases and circulation problems as well as hair follicles cannot grow hair in such an environment. So the best way around this is to improve your diet (avoid sugar and carbs) and focus on meat diets (without the fats) – this is done because inflammation feeds from sugar, and when you dont eat sugar long enough, inflammation cannot occur – how long not to eat sugar depends on each individual and how their past was with eating sugar foods – but 1 month to 2 years is the range – you should consult with your doctor in case your health condition can be affected by this diet.

– Anti Inflammation Products: There are products that can help local areas to reduce inflammation, but you still should avoid sugars or at least consistently reduce it if you cannot let go altogether – but these products are rated here on our homepage – and Zeavive is one of those products.

Remember – the power to do this is within each person to help them improve their health – be it for cosmetic purposes or internal health or mental health, but discipline is required to do this – the above are some of the most powerful methods that will start working from day 1.

High Carb diet and Hair Loss

high-carb-diet

A high carb diet is common among many people, from bodybuilders to just everyday people who simply love carbs – what’s not to love, they make us feel good right after eating, and gives us that push when we are feeling low.

But does a high carb diet contribute to hair loss or hair thinning in men and women?

To understand this, you have to understand that our hormones (how we feel) are directly affected from carbs – this means anything from sugar to fat to carbohydrates affects the hormonal system and how you feel – that is why eating such foods makes as feel better if we are feeling depressed – but the problem is, this is not a good solution to resolving the problem in the first place.

If you feel depressed and you eat carbs, you not only push your hormones to work harder, but you also get addicted to that behavior because of the chemical reaction!  It becomes a dangerous downward spiral, and many people don’t even see it getting worse until its too late.

But there is no such thing as too late as long as you realize something.

Hair loss can easily be increased on a high carb diet as there is a lot of combustion taking place in the body, lots to process, and if you don’t exercise 24/7 to be burning those calories off, then it is even worse.

Carbs and sugars should be occasional foods, and not a regular food – if you have emotional issues, they must be handled, but not with food – most people eat because of an emotional reason be it comfort, or something else – but most do it.

How do you get rid of this addiction?

Well its simple – go on a protein no carb/sugar/fat diet – so you only eat lean meats for breakfast lunch and dinner combined with steamed leafy greens like spinach and kale – just for 2 weeks, this will rid you of your addictions of food and renew your hormone system (yes you will look younger, feel sexier and look amazing in just that short amount of time).

No, don’t take protein shakes – they have preservative chemicals and a lot of stuff that you don’t want to be taking. You can eat as much as you want, and you will still lose weight, because it will be hard to eat so much.

The fantastic thing about this diet is that if you have acid reflux problems or heart burn – this is the cure to it! It usually fully cures it in 2 weeks, but if you still have it, then continue the diet for longer – some people with serious hormone issues do it for a whole year and renew every cell in their body.

You can go back to your normal diet, but you will find it hard to consume that much sugar and carbs, because you will be aware of how rich it is, and that you don’t really need it – how amazing is that?

Please share this with your friends and family so that everyone can benefit from this diet!

Hypoglycemia and Hair thinning

Low blood sugar and hair loss

If you suffer from a low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), and are seeing hair thinning on top of this, then it is a sure thing that you need to start an exercise program from right now.

This is because this condition can be greatly helped by exercising more – the problem is, people with this low blood sugar problem often feel like they have no energy to do any exercise, so it can be a very dangerous downward spiral – but if you mentally take control, and do 1 exercise daily, be it walking for 20 minutes outside, or jump rope for 5 minutes to raise heart rate (which helps push blood circulation to the extremities).

So is there a definite link between hair loss and hypoglycemia?

As you age, you will get thinning hair, unless you do things to maintain good blood circulation – now if you already abused sugar and carbs at a younger age, and did not exercise much, this is how you can develop hypoglycemia which only makes hair loss worse – but the problem is still the same, and one must exercise on a daily basis for a long period of time (more than a year) to see real full on results – and stay on a low calorie, high protein diet (no carbs, no sugar and no fats – just meat and veggies).

Is there a way to naturally cure hypoglycemia?

Yes – the cause of this is no exercise and high carbs, fat and sugar – and the body is getting sick from it, literally – so doing more exercise will surely help, as well as avoiding those foods (yes it is difficult to do, but if you are determined to get through it, you will succeed).

 

 

Mental Clarity Required for Reaching Health Goals

Mental clarity is an important function for one if they want to reach their health goals (or any goals at all) – it is the most underrated aspect of health, because we don’t realize that mentally clear people are able to observe their problems better, and in turn, able to deal with them better.

Health problems like hair loss to anything more serious can all be resolved or improved with mental and emotional clarity – but how does one achieve this?

We already know that B-complex vitamins help with stress, and in turn supports emotional health – we also know exercise is a must, if we want to have any sort of stability in hormones after the age of 25, so with these two combined, what else is available?

The one thing that can help improve mental clarity is Epsom salt baths – this is because of the detox it provides. The skin is looked at as a third kidney, and having regular Epsom salt baths (weekly or monthly) helps the body rid of toxins which otherwise have to go through the kidneys, and this taxes the body too much to achieve mental clarity.

In eastern medicine, water is the nature of your mind – having regular mineral rich water, is essential to keeping a stable and clear mind – and a stomach that is not constantly full, also helps with achieving better mentally clear states – many people report very strong mental clarity when they are on a fasting period of 30 days – so this does have a positive correlation.

Does Niacin help with Hair Growth?

Emotional Health for Beauty

 

Niacin (Vitamin B3) is a water soluble vitamin which is required by the body at a constant rate (like all B vitamins); it is required constantly because the body cannot hold onto these and store them for later use.

What is the significance of Niacin Vitamin supplementation for hair growth and naturally thickening hair for men and women?

This is the question often asked – and people are often looking for studies on hair growth and Niacin.

This is one of the few vitamins which can almost instantly cause something known as a flush – which is expansion of the blood vessels (for up to 20 minutes at a time, depending on dosage taken) – this expansion of vessels has a very beneficial effect on helping blood circulation and improving natural states of health – but is this flush the only benefit?

Not exactly – although the flush is an important part of the Niacin benefit (so don’t get the anti-flush Niacin they sell), in terms of helping regrow thicker hair, it is not the only major reason it helps with hair growth in men and women – Niacin helps the nerves to relax, and thus helping the stopping of stress hormones to constantly being released (which drain the body, but also cause hair problems).

Is the Niacin flush dangerous?

No – it is helpful – the first time you experience it, you might think you are getting warm, or tingly, but this is perfectly fine. People often take it before bed so that they don’t have to be awake to experience it, but it is not actually a bad thing to experience.

How should I start taking Niacin for hair growth, and what dosage?

Niacin should be started on a low dosage, like 50 mg per day, then 100 mg per day after 1 week – and doubling every week, and maintaining at 500 mg per day. This should be taken long term for at least 18 months if you want to experience the full benefits of Niacin.

Where should I buy Niacin from? What is the best brand out there?

B3 vitamins are usually sold in varying qualities which the companies often don’t disclose, but reliable companies often charge a lot more than others for good quality ones – so buy the most expensive one you can; be sure it is actually expensive, and not just being over priced by the retailer you happen to visit or website you first see.

We have experience with using Solgar B3 Vitamins – which are actually very cheap but still expensive for its range – and have found their supplements to be of good quality – but be sure to eat B3 vitamins with food, or after eating a meal.

What studies have been done to match Niacin with hair growth?

Many users have reported better quality hair after taking Niacin. Combined with a healthy diet and exercise regime, you can definitely help your hair growth positively. You can read more information by clicking here about Niacin and its studies.

 

Bone Marrow and Hair Growth linked – Eastern Sciences

bone soup 33

 

Bone marrow and hair growth and natural beauty have been linked, not only by western scientists but also Eastern medical teams which practice ancient healing methods like herbology and acupuncture.

It has been said that the youthful appearance that we often talk about comes from the healthy state of our bone marrow, and the science community in Asian countries often claim the benefits of Qigong and bone marrow building exercises for their youthful appearances and great hair.

There are many ways to keep healthy, but bone marrow staying fresh and constantly exercised by doing stance training exercises like the commonly known horse stance in martial arts, is ideal to build and maintain healthy bone marrow in the body – this produces fresh blood, and pushes the nervous system to a new edge due to the constant practice of such exercises – so not only do you look younger, you also feel younger, and have great hair on your head even at a very old age.

What about genetics?

Yes genetics plays a role – but if you change your habits now, and build good exercise regimes, this itself already changes the expression of your genetics; genetics is often misunderstood as “destiny” but this is far from the truth – genetics is always constantly changing, and its expression is dependant on your diet, everyday emotions and your exercise levels (blood circulation to the organs etc).

Will drinking bone soup help with hair growth?

As a part of an overall regime, yes it will support health at its foundation, and will greatly increase nutritional density in your body and bones – constantly having this soup as well as exercising 3-4 times a week to your full extent (various exercises, not just one type) will surely support your youthful appearance and hair growth and quality of hair that is grown.

In natural healing, it must be understood that its very different from western healing methods of taking a pill and expecting results to come – in natural healing it is about doing everything you know that will help contribute towards your health and well being – including leaving friends that stress you out, or making new friends that support your emotional health rather than abuse it, improving your current food quality intake, increasing physical activity and a lot more all powerfully help towards increasing youthful appearance and hair growth.

Body Physiology and Effectiveness of Products

natural products for hair

 

Each person’s physiology is different – how their body reacts to different foods and emotions is different, to the very way we see a colour is different (watch this video if you’re not sure what we mean).

So how can we expect that the same product or drug work for our health, be it for hair, skin, internal organs or emotional health? 

The truth is, that even when we eat food, our body reacts different to another person’s body – we have seen people of the same age, who can eat a lot and stay very thin, and whilst others who eat average find it difficult to lose weight.

Why is this important to understand?

Because if you understand this, that the body is different, just like our fingerprints are different from each other, or eye biometrics – so is how our organs and hormone systems. This means that it is truly up to is, to find the way for our own unique health and emotional balance, nobody else can do it for us, other than guide us (such as this article is attempting to do).

So how can one find out how their body and emotions react and what is idea for them?

One way is to study the ways that other people have adopted and try them out – but another is to be conscious of your body and intend to really see what affects it positively and negatively. Of course to some extent what affects most people will affect you in a similar way – such as sugar will feed inflammation – but how and to what extent is up to your body and immune system, this can be built if you really want it to be built.

Next time you eat, notice if that food makes you feel active and energetic and clear of thoughts, or does it make you feel sluggish afterwards – usually the foods making you feel sluggish are the ones you need to avoid – but also note the quantity. Sometimes a lesser quantity of the same food which was previously negative, can be positive for you if taken less often or in small portions.

These are often important aspects of health which are rarely ever talked about because you can’t exactly sell a product or service to them – you are fully giving the individual full responsibility for their own health, which is a key part in improving today’s society as a human race.
