I’m pretty sure most of us look at ourselves when we’re in a lift with a mirror. There’s nothing worse than seeing those lift lights emphasising how thin your hair is on top! But taking a hair growth supplement, minerals or using a topical hair remedy has worked for me in the past.
Here, we take a look at how something known as a Proteoglycan Replacement Therapy supplement – in this instance, a product called Hair Growth+ InCLINIC by Nourkrin – has helped two women, in particular. First, consultant dermatologist, DR ANGELINE YONG from Angeline Yong Dermatology answers some questions about hair loss, and how supplements can help.
How does the hair growth cycle affect hair loss or thinning hair?
The hair growth cycle consists of three phases:
- Anagen is the growing phase, which typically lasts between five to seven years.
- Catagen is the transition phase before the hair goes into the telogen phase.
- Telogen is the resting phase. Typically, the follicle will stay in this phase for between three to six months before shedding and entering back into the growing phase.
Due to many factors – ageing, environmental aggressors or hormonal factors, for example – the growing phase may become shorter, and the hair may grow back a little differently each time. The hair could be thinner, for instance, with fewer strands.
How common is hair loss in women compared to men?
Whilst hair loss seems to affect more men, many women are also affected by it. According to WebMD (webmd.com), approximately 50 percent of women will experience hair loss to some extent by their late 50s.
Are hair growth supplements for everyone?
Most hair supplements are suitable for everyone as they replenish certain elements that could be depleting due to ageing, hormones, stress or sudden weight loss. For instance, Proteoglycan Replacement Therapy supplements replace the specific proteoglycans responsible for hair growth to promote healthier and stronger hair growth, lengthening the growing phase in the hair cycle.
It’s important to speak with your dermatologist first to understand the causes of your hair loss for an accurate diagnosis and treatment options.
Tried & Tested: Hair Growth Supplement+ InCLINIC by Nourkrin
We hear the verdict from two women who’ve been using Nourkrin for their hair-loss issues.
“I’d been experiencing thinning hair for four to six months and using hair fall shampoo, hair tonic and hair massages to help to increase growth when I heard about Nourkrin on Instagram. I’ve now been taking Nourkrin supplements for about six months, and I can see hair growth – my baby hairs are coming out. So I would definitely recommend it to others.”
“My hair has always been on the thinner, finer side, but I started experiencing increased hair loss a few years back when I started styling my hair more often (dyeing and so on). So I researched foods that could promote hair growth, and I bought a ton of hair loss shampoos, hair growth serums and supplements to try! I also stopped styling my hair as much.
I was introduced to Nourkrin by a friend, and I had another online acquaintance tell me that his wife’s hair growth had been tremendous since taking it.
I’ve now been using the product for two months, and it’s nothing short of amazing! I’ve seen lots of baby hair all over my scalp – something I’ve not experienced with other hair growth products. I would definitely recommend it to anyone, male or female, who is experiencing hair loss.”
