Whether we are a man or woman, thinning hair causes stress. Hair loss changes the image of who we see when we look into a mirror. The American Hair Loss Organization tells us that temporary hair loss can be easily fixed with the right treatment and what all hair loss has in common is that something has gone wrong in the body. Hair loss may be triggered by genetics, a variety of diseases, or temporary conditions such as stress, pregnancy, or certain medications.
Hair loss, along with other signs of aging, can be signs of developing heart disease. WebMd reports on a large study that looked at receding hairline and other signs of aging, and a connection to heart attack and heart disease. While knowing about possible risk factors can be scary, knowledge can motivate us to practice prevention.
Most of the hair on our head is in the growing stage. After growing for a few years, hair enters into a resting stage and then into a shedding stage that lasts two to three months. This hair growth cycle continues throughout our life unless interrupted.
Some conditions can cause a large number of hairs to prematurely enter into the resting and shedding phase. After giving birth, some women will lose up to one-third of their hair. The hair will quickly grow back within the year if properly nourished. Stressful events such as a high fever, infection, malnutrition, or excessive dieting, can cause a woman to suffer severe hair loss, generally six weeks to three months after the event. In time this type of hair shedding will decrease and hair will regain a normal growth pattern. Using harsh hair care products, too tight ponytails, or hair extensions, can also cause hair to fall before its time.
A nutritious diet that contains adequate calories and protein is crucial. Without proper nutrition the body uses available nutrients to first nourish more important functions. Proflex20 is an easy and delicious way to add necessary protein to the diet. Take the Vitality Pack with Oligofructose Complex as directed.
Salmon and walnuts are listed by WebMD as two of the top ten foods to nourish healthy hair growth. Both foods are great sources of omega-3 fatty acids. The article notes that about three percent of the hair shaft is made up of omega-3 fatty acids. Vitality Coldwater Omega-3 contains the ideal balance of DHA and EPA fatty acids. Omega-3s are also found in Phytomega Heart Health Supplement and Unforgettables.
The Melaleuca Wellness Guide tells us that after an extensive study of about one thousand plant extracts, researchers in Japan discovered that proanthocyanidins possess remarkable hair-cycle-converting activity. ProvexCV and Provex-Plus contain potent forms of proanthocyanidins from grape seed extract.
After ruling out pathological conditions causing hair loss, many people slow down or stop hair loss when simple steps are taken. A daily massage with T36-C5 or Renew Intensive Skin Therapy is often helpful. Use Melaleuca's Original Shampoo, which is rich in T36-C5 and natural conditioners to maintain a clean and healthy scalp. This shampoo soothes, clarifies and strengthens your hair from root to tip. It is gentle enough to use every day.

I used to use a very popular grocery store brand of hair products. I used an anti-breakage formula and I did notice a difference in the strength of my hair while I was using it. Then I learned about sulfates, so I switched to an organic shampoo and conditioner that was pretty pricey.
When I switched my hair became so brittle! It just kept breaking off! It was never THAT brittle when I was using the grocery store brand! I suppose the grocery store brand I had been using only superficially strengthened my hair while it was REALLY damaging my hair with the sulfates. It was very disturbing cleaning all of my hair out of the hairbrush every time I brushed it. My hair got very thin.
Then my friend introduced me to Melaleuca. The month we enrolled was the same month they introduced Affinia and Sei Bella. So I ordered Affinia Shampoo and Conditioner. I loved the price, and noticed right away that I used WAY less product to get the job done. The smaller bottle of Affinia will last my entire family of five up to three months or more! Normally I need a volumizing formula, but my hair was SO damaged that I ordered the ultra-moisturizing. After just a week I could tell a difference, not just in my hair, but also in my daughters' hair. It was shiny, soft, and bouncy.
A few months later my mother bought me the Sei Bella Shampoo and Conditioner set for my birthday. I loved it!!! My hair looked incredible, felt wonderful, and smelled amazing! I actually hid it because I didn't want my husband or kids to use it. But one day I forgot to get it out of the shower and my husband used it. He loved it too! His hair was always so dry. He has dark brown hair that had a grayish tint to it because it was so dried out. After using Sei Bella his hair was soft, shiny, and much easier for him to style. Now Sei Bella is the only thing he will let me order for us.
Our girls still use the Affinia line, and we style our hair with the Affinia styling products. The styling products make my life so much easier. I scrunch my hair a lot. I've discovered that the Affinia styling products don't make my hair frizzy like the store brands I used to use. And I don't have to wash my hair as often because the products don't get flaky. All I have to do the next day is freshen up my hair with a pick and some hairspray and I'm good to go. My hair is much stronger and healthier now, and it looks better than it ever has. Oh and in case I forgot to mention it ....I LOVE THIS STUFF!
The Melaleuca hair care products have done wonders for my hair! For the last year I have used Affinia Ultra-Moisture Shampoo and a Sei Bella Daily Treatment. I have noticed a huge change in my hair. I used to wash my hair and spend thirty minutes trying to get a comb through it. It was time consuming and frustrating that my old products just wouldn't clean and condition my hair. I now get out of the shower, comb my hair with ease, and go on to other things. No more frustration! I will never use any other product!!
My two year old daughter has suffered from cradle cap since the day she was born. We tried every shampoo and had no luck. Her pediatrician gave us a prescription shampoo that left her hair very greasy. And if it was not scrubbed into her hair every day, at least an hour before her bath, it did no good. We bought Koala Pals Shampoo and on its very first application, her cradle cap was gone! We have used it for two months now and the cradle cap has not come back. The spot where it had been was bald for so long and now her hair is growing back. Koala Pals is wonderful!!!
My hair has always been very fine and straight. In my mid fifties it started to thin, which I was not happy about. I was introduced to Melaleuca five years ago, and I started taking the Vitality Pack and ProvexCV. After several months I noticed my hair was thicker and had a wave. This was confirmed on my next trip to my hairdresser. The manager asked me if I'd had a body perm! I explained that I had been taking some new supplements. Every time I go and have my hair cut, my hairdresser marvels at how thick and wavy my hair is. My hair grows much quicker now too!
