One of the main reasons hair loss treatment Revivogen was started was due to the fact that Dr. Khadavi himself was unable to find any natural hair loss treatment options that actually blocked DHT and thereby preventing future hair loss. He did extensive research and testing to formulate Revivogen to what it is today.
Hair loss is not easy to deal with for those experiencing it and millions of people are suffering from some sort of hair loss and many of us will see thinning hair at some point in our lives. There are many hair loss treatment options and solutions that claim to be the “miracle worker” against preventing and stopping hair loss. But it’s important to be weary of these products that claim unrealistic results.
The truth is – if the hair loss is genetic, or pattern baldness, it is due to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) attacking the hair follicles (and this occurs in both men and women.) The product that claims to stop or prevent genetic hair loss needs to have DHT blockers present in the ingredients to actually have any effect on the condition.
Hair Loss Treatment Options: What is DHT?
DHT is a male sex hormone that synthesizes in the adrenal glands, hair follicles, testes and prostate. When there is a change of the metabolism of androgen in the body, this can cause hair loss in both men and women. When the DHT gets to the dermal papilla (which is the biggest role in the hair follicles that allows for proper blood flow and nutrients to the hair follicles) it affects the absorption of the nutrients to the follicles, causing them to stay in the resting phase for much longer than normal.
Your Hair Loss Treatments Options to Stop DHT
As far as hair loss treatment options go, you have a few selections. You can either go the chemical route (minoxidil) or the all natural route (Revivogen). Of course, we do recommend Revivogen if you are looking to block the formation of DHT in the system from ultimately attacking your hair follicles, as well as the added benefit that you won’t be putting yet another chemical in your body or system that might have other negative affects or reactions on the body.
We all want to take care of our bodies, our health and our outward appearance. Annual checkups to our doctors, dentists and the like become part of our routine – so why should the hair on heads be any different? Hair fall is not an easy condition to deal with, affects a lot of men and women according to the American Hair Loss Association and it causes a lot of stress for both men and women suffering from genetic hair loss or other types. The question that often gets asked is – when should I start taking action again my hair loss and being a treatment regimen?
The Cause of Hair Loss is Not Created Equal
The answer isn’t so generic as it depends on many factors. Firstly, it is crucial that the cause of the condition is determined first before any treatment options are considered, as genetic hair loss is treated differently from other causes. Sometimes the cause is not genetic (male or female pattern baldness) and could be pointing to a much more serious illness or condition. If a person is losing their hair at an uncomfortable or rapid pace, it is important to visit a doctor to determine what is causing the it. Otherwise, one could start a treatment that is intended for genetic hair loss and blocking DHT (like Revivogen) when in actuality they are experiencing hair loss from stress or malnutrition – and therefore the treatment would most likely not be effective.
As far as when to start considering a hair loss treatment, Dr. Khadavi recommends starting a hair loss treatment option as soon as possible – since the whole reason he founded and formulated Revivogen was due to the fact that he started noticing hair loss at a young age himself and found early detection and treatment was ideal for preventing future hair loss on the scalp. Once the hair is affected by dihydrotestosterone present in the follicles for a long enough period of time, this makes the treatments less effective over time. And, as they say, once it’s gone … it’s gone. Consider stopping genetic hair loss in its tracks before it’s too late.
Dandruff and hair loss can be really embarrassing for the person experiencing it and sometimes they feel that there is no way to prevent it. Besides the obvious Head and Shoulders solution, below we offer five ways to prevent dandruff that you maybe didn’t know about.
#1 Look to Your Diet
We say this a lot, but a healthy diet is crucial for the health of your hair and scalp. Make sure you are getting the proper nutrients in your diet, such as protein and fiber. Get plenty of zinc, omega-3 and fatty acids in your diet as well. Salmon is good for omega-3. Dandruff is caused by a fungus and healthy body will alter how your body reacts to this fungus that causes the dandruff.
#2 Don’t Stress
Stress only adds more stress on other parts of your health and body as well.
#3 Don’t Overdo the Products
Don’t layer hairspray on top of gel on top of shine spray and so on. This not only clogs up your pours on the scalp but it could even trigger allergic reactions as well. If you start to use a product and notice dandruff, stop using the product and limit the products as much as possible.
#4 Try a Dandruff Shampoo
There is more than just head and shoulders out there to treat dandruff. Look at the active ingredients and test the products to see which one works best for you and your scalp.
#5 Try Oils
If anti-dandruff shampoos don’t work, try using herbal oils to remedy the situation. Try Dhathri Dandruff Oil to treat the scalp.
Dandruff and hair loss are difficult to deal with at times and can leave people feeling frustrated and embarrassed. The key here is to not stress, determine the cause, and find a treatment that works for you. As always, if the problem persists, visit a doctor to see what is causing the dandruff.
There is no denying that hair loss has psychological effects on self-esteem and how one feels about their outward appearance. And let’s face it – no one wants to go bald. The truth is that hair loss does make us look older and it’s not easy to hide. But millions of men and women experience the condition and yet, it is still not widely discussed as something that is difficult to cope with in our lives.
Thinning hair can come in many stages and we can lose our hair at all different rates. Androgenetic alopecia affects about 95% of hair loss in men, according to the American Hair Loss Association. And of the 50 million Americans experiencing some kind of hair loss, 45% of those are women. One way to cope with the hair loss is to seek out advice and information. Are there treatment options available? What is causing your hair loss to begin with? Once you can understand what is causing the condition and if there are any available treatment options, that is when the relief sets in. Below are a few ways to cope with your hair loss.
1. Breathe and Find a Treatment Option
Researching various treatment options for your hair loss is a good way to cope with the condition – as it provides some sort of hope or solution to the problem. And you feel less powerless.
2. Start Some Sort of Treatment Sooner Rather Than Later
With genetic hair loss, the sooner a treatment is started, the better chance you have at saving the hair against hair loss in the future.
3. Diagnose the Problem
Sometimes, the hair loss you are experiencing may not be genetic. It could be due to some other medical condition or lifestyle choice such as diet or lack of certain nutrients or vitamins. Make sure to explore all options of what is causing your hair loss so when you do decide to seek treatment, you are choosing a treatment that will actually work.
4. Visit the Barber or Hair Stylist
This seems a bit odd to go cut off more hair if you are losing your hair already – but sometimes a certain style of haircut can only make your hair loss look more obvious. Going to a stylist who can help you with styling tricks and recommend certain products that will make your hair appear fuller will be a big boost of confidence.
Can stress cause hair loss? The answer is yes – but there are some factors involved. When exploring possible causes of hair loss in both men and women, many questions and concerns are raised about such things as diet or lifestyle. Although androgenetic alopecia is one of the more common causes of hair loss in ladies and men, we rarely bring up the topic of lifestyle choices and how one particular element can actually have such an impact on your health that it causes your hair to fall out or thin.
When the cause is not so obvious as pattern baldness, diagnosis becomes much more difficult for someone suffering from hair loss. Hair pulling, also called trichotillomania, is one cause of hair loss but because the sufferer is aware that this is causing the hair loss, it can sometimes be easier to diagnose (even though it’s not necessarily easy to cope with.) Hair loss caused from stress is the topic of today.
Can Stress Cause Hair Loss?
In order to understand how stress causes hair loss, it’s important to first understand the hair growth cycle. The first stage is anagen, known as the active hair growth phase. This new hair continues to grow and pushes the old hair up the follicle and out. The hair grows, normally, at about a half an inch per month. The next phase is the catagen phase. This is when the hair stops growing and enters a two week transitional phase. In this phase, the root sheath in the follicle shrinks and attached to the base of the hair. Once the hair is no longer attached to the blood supply, this is the telogen or resting phase. Hairs usually are in this phase for a while and then fall out normally with day to day life – and then the whole cycle repeats itself. The hairs that fall out are replaced with new hairs.
Telogen is a key phase for stress related hair loss and to answer the question of can stress cause hair loss. Basically, when a traumatic event happens – such as a divorce, a loss of a family member or a critical accident. The levels of stress associated with these traumatic experiences keep some hairs in the resting or telogen phase – causing it to continually fall out without reaching that anagen (growth) phase – resulting in apparent hair loss. Physiological stressors can include diet or rapid weight loss changes, horomonal changes including pregnancy, etc. Obviously, someone cutting you off in LA traffic is not enough stress to cause hair loss – but continual emotional distress over a year-long period can cause hair loss. The good news is once the stressor is identified and eliminated, the hair, although this will always vary from person to person, should go back to its normal growth pattern.
A recent study published in the BMJ Open indicated a link between hair loss and heart disease. Simply stated: the more hair, the healthier the heart. This long study that indicates that balding men are at a higher risk for heart disease has been going around on the internet these last few days – but don’t rush to the Doctor just yet. Although the study concluded that men suffering from hair loss may indicate a heart risk, the results were modest at best. Compared to the effects smoking, obesity and high blood pressure have on the heart, a thinning crown area will not necessarily indicate that you will have a heart attack or heart problems.
Good News For Young Men Experiencing Hair Fall
The study, although it had modest results for the link between hair loss and heart disease, is good for younger men experiencing hair fall at an early age to try to reduce some of the risks associated with heart problems. They may be at a higher risk for developing heart conditions later on in life, if they were to say start smoking, said researcher Tomohide Yamada of the University of Tokyo in Japan, in a USA Today article.
Simply put, at the end of the day the only indicators for heart problems and disease will be health history, cholesterol and blood pressure – and also lifestyle choices that affect the heart health. Since hair loss affects, oh, about 40% of the male population (we’re talking millions) all of them should not go read about this study and then run to their doctor for cardiac testing, said Yamada.
While Revivogen is a great natural treatment option for thinning hair – there are other measures to take in addition to using Revivogen. There are some nutrients found in food for thicker hair.
A study was recently released by Cairo University linking Vitamin D deficiency and hair loss. The study focused mostly on women and found that women who were suffering from hair loss also had lower levels of iron and Vitamin D in their system. And as the levels lowered, the hair loss became more severe. Below are five foods to incorporate into your diet that are rich in iron and Vitamin D…

We all want to look our best and the hair on our heads is typically one of the easiest (and most affordable, compared to, say, plastic surgery) features to change for a fresh, new look. Allure recently gave their tips for hair updates that will actually make us look younger. Below are the styles you should avoid:
1. Wispy Bangs – Wispy or thin bangs will make you look older, Allure says. And if you have thinning hair, these can be the worst for your look.
Opt for: Sideswept bangs for a younger look, like Amy Poehler seen here.
2. Too many curls – Too many curls can actually make us look older, says Allure regarding the Shirley Temple look.
Opt for: A sleek, straight look like Nicole Kidman.
3. A dead-center part – A part going right down the middle of your scalp can sometimes age even the most youthful of celebrities.
Opt for: A deep, side part like Mena Suvari here
4. The bouffant – An overly-teased bouffant can make even Katherine Heigl look older.
Opt for: A side part with loose waves for an effortless updo.
5. Too dark hair – Making your hair hue too dark can age your face more than the sun. Well, not exactly … but it can bring out dark circles, etc – making even the youngest look aged.
Opt for: Hair color with depth, highlights and low lights is much more flattering for celebs like Jennifer Lawrence.
