Find answers to the Fequently Asked Questions about thinning. For more information find a salon and consult a stylist, or contact us.
IS IT NORMAL TO SEE A SUDDEN INCREASE IN THE AMOUNT OF HAIR YOU ARE LOSING?At any given time, around 10% of all our hair strands are in the telogen (resting) phase – around 10,000 hair fibers! During this phase, hair is very susceptible to shedding and plucking.
- What happens: During telogen (up to 4 months), hair bulbs shrink, resulting in hair being less strongly anchored in the scalp and ultimately lost.
- Fact: A NIOXIN clinical study has shown that this hair "shedding" or "plucking," and breakage, are the main contributors of daily hair fall.
- Challenge: Everyday mechanical stress like styling and brushing can accelerate this hair fall.
- Insight: Protecting the hair from mechanical stress means you help prevent breakage and premature pulling, keeping as many hair fibers on your head for as long as naturally possible.
Excessive daily hair loss is when 50 or more hairs per day are lost and not replaced at the same rate, indicating potential thinning-hair problems.
DOES THE NIOXIN INTENSIVE THERAPY® HAIR MASQUE HELP THE CORTEX OF THE HAIR?Yes. Through its proprietary technology, NIOXIN smoothens the cuticle to help prevent cortex exposure and breakage.
WHICH OF THE THREE PRODUCTS (CLEANSER, SCALP REVITALISER OR SCALP TREATMENT) REMOVES ENVIRONMENTAL RESIDUE FROM THE SCALP SKIN?The Cleanser will remove follicle-clogging sebum, environmental residues and build-up from the scalp skin; all products work in concert to optimize the overall scalp environment.
