How Hair Loss Starts And How We Can Prevent It

Hair loss doesn’t happen overnight. It is a process that takes place over many months, and sometimes even over many years. You can think that you don’t have to worry about it until you are in your late thirties or early forties, but research shows that the process starts a lot earlier. Hair starts to fall out when the follicles start shrinking. Normally each follicle can grow up to four hairs at once. As they get smaller, they grow less hairs, leaving you with less strands on your head.

A lot of hair loss is hereditary. Genetic factors cause the follicles to shrink. Some hair loss is related to the immune system. Excess inflammation causes the shrinkage. Some is due to diet or stress, but the bottom line is still the same. It means the hair follicles are slowly closing, eventually causing no hair to grow at all.

Many of the above mentioned things are not in our control. We cannot help the genes we are born with. Life will always be stressful. And extreme diet change is very difficult, although it really can help with reducing inflammation in the body. What you can help is the way you care for your scalp and hair follicles.

Traditional shampoos and conditioners contain many ingredients that can make your actual hair shiny and healthy looking. But in order to keep that hair healthy and shiny, it needs to come from a healthy scalp. Those very same shampoos can cause scalp irritation, in itself a cause of follicle shrinking. Scientists have been working on this problem and there is finally a product on the market that will give you beautiful shiny hair while working to keep those follicles growing hair at their maximum. Pura d’Or shampoo, which can be purchased through the 2 Minute Club, uses ingredients that are proven to work at the follicle level.

This season give yourself and your loved ones the gift of a beautiful healthy head of hair.  Go to and have the magic at your doorstep with a few clicks of your mouse.
