How Much Hair Loss Is Normal?

posted by Lissa Logan

Wondering if you’re losing a little more hair than normal? Most people shed between 50-100 strands each day, 250 strands on shampoo days.

But if you’re worried that you’re losing more than that, there are two obvious signs you may be ignoring:

• An unusually large amount of hair on your pillow when you wake up in the morning

• Combing your hair (without tugging) leaves a large quantity on your comb

The causes of hair loss are many! Age, genetics, and hormones are just some of the culprits. The trick is to catch hair loss before the hair follicles die. Once they are gone they cannot be brought back.

Have you ever considered that your shampoo could be a possible culprit in the fight to keep your hair?

Not all shampoos are created equal. In fact, 95% of shampoo and personal care manufacturers use a chemical that’s known to cause hair loss.

The ingredient, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), was originally designed to clean the dirt and grime out of your hair.

And it does.

In fact, SLS also strips your scalp of essential oils and natural moisture, as well as dehydrating your sebaceous glands. Worse, SLS damages your hair follicles, which results in hair loss.

Here’s how it works. You shed about 100 hairs each day. When you wash your hair, SLS wreaks havoc by damaging and sometimes clogging exposed hair follicles, and that leads to more hair loss

Studies have shown that skin cells can actually absorb SLS, resulting in many hair and health-related problems. Nearly 16,000 studies have been conducted on the toxicity of this chemical (see PubMed science library), yet it remains in shampoos.

If you are combating hair loss, please check your shampoo label. If SLS is in it, then talk to us about a sulfate-free shampoo. These products support your hair. You’ll have no worry that your shampoo is contributing to your hair loss.

Instead, your hair will feel soft and healthy. Never worry about damaging your health or your hair ever again!

Diet Tips For Hair Loss Prevention

Diet Tips For Hair Loss Prevention

Diet Tips For Hair Loss Prevention By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
 
We all want thick, healthy hair. And as we grow older, we spend time, money, effort to keep our hair lush and shiny.
 
And we should keep doing that as hair loss is a problem that plagues many. It can be caused a number of reasons such as malnutrition, stress, illness, improper hair care, and medication side effects.
 
The most common cause of hair loss is nutritional deficiency. If you notice that the amount of hair you are losing everyday increases, do consult a dermatologist so he can prescribe specific laboratory tests to determine if you have a nutritional deficiency.
 
But the good this is, hair loss prevention starts in the kitchen!  You can incorporate food items rich in omega 3 fatty acids in your diet to strengthen your hair and promote hair growth. Fish such as salmon, sardines, cod and mackerel are rich in omega 3 fatty acids.  You can also take food supplements containing borage oil, flaxseed oil, and even evening primrose oil.
 
Hair also needs GLA, gamma linoleic acid, to keep the hair shaft thick and strong. Black currant oil is rich in GLA and is widely available in capsule form.

This Is The Best Shampoo For  Chemically Straightened Hair

This Is The Best Shampoo For Chemically Straightened Hair

This Is The Best Shampoo For  Chemically Straightened Hair By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
 
When you take the time, care, and investment to  chemically straighten your hair, you want to make sure it stays in top condition. You also want your treatment to last as long as possible.
 
That’s why you should stay away from shampoos containing sulfates, especially sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). It strips your hair treatment.
 
All of your time and money is literally washed down the drain. And you’re left with a bigger mess on your hands, dry, brittle, frizzy hair.
 
Very cheap to create by manufacturers, sulfates produce a rich lather. And that’s about all they have going for them.
 
Sodium lauryl sulfate is the strongest of the sulfate family. Intended to be an effective hair cleanser, SLS dehydrates the sebaceous glands and strips the scalp of its essential oils. The result is an irritated scalp. It can also cause:
 
– Hair loss
 
– Organ toxicity
 
– Hormonal disruption
 
– Developmental/reproductive toxicity
 
There are nearly 16,000 studies in the PubMed science library about the toxicity of this chemical. Yet, it continues to be used.
 
That’s why we recommend sulfate-free shampoo.  It preserves your hair treatment, reduces dryness of the scalp, prevents hair loss, and reduces frizzies.
 
Your hair feels softer, looks healthier and has a ton of shine!
 
Save your hair, your health, and the environment. Ask us about sulfate-free shampoo.

6 Beautiful Reasons To Love Sulfate-Free Shampoos

6 Beautiful Reasons To Love Sulfate-Free Shampoos

6 Beautiful Reasons To Love Sulfate-Free Shampoos By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
 
We all love a shampoo that lathers and lathers. If feels luxurious and oh, so good for your hair. Right?
 
Well, sadly, no. The manufacturers of hair care products have duped us. All that lather is just a cheap thrill and lots of extra money in their pockets.
 
The ingredient used to create all those suds is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). Manufacturers love it because it’s very cheap. That means more profits for them.
 
And what do you get in return?
 
If you’ll go to the PubMed library, you will find 16,000 studies that prove this chemical is toxic to the human body, including your hair. SLS dries out your scalp and hair, causes hair loss, scalp irritation, frizzies, and rapid deterioration of chemical hair treatments like colour and hair straightening.
 
And that’s just your hair! SLS also affects your liver and kidney functions, and interferes with hormonal regulation.
 
Not what you were expecting from a shampoo? Then make the intelligent and healthy choice. Switch to sulfate-free shampoos. Here’s what you get:
 
Reduced irritation – Sulfates are irritants. Without it, irritation visibly reduces within the first few uses.
 
Good for colour-treated hair – Sulfate-free shampoos reduce colour fading. If you want your colour to last longer, go sulfate-free!
 
Reduces dryness of the scalp – Sulfates strip the natural oils in your scalp. Get relief when you switch to a sulfate-free shampoo.
 
Hair loss – You shed about 100 hairs each day. When sulfates attack these empty hair follicles, they are absorbed by the follicle, resulting in brittle, highly breakable, and dull hair.
 
Reduces the frizzies – Who doesn’t want this? Without sulfates to dry out both your hair and your scalp, you get hair that feels healthier, shinier and softer.
 
Reduces the occurrence of grey hair – Remember, SLS is found in laundry detergents. Without it, hair isn’t stripped of its colour so quickly.
 
Don’t waste another minute. Talk to us about our sulfate-free shampoo line today!
