Most of the hair on our head is in the growing stage. After growing for a few years hair will enter into the 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 head hair but will quickly grow it back within the year if properly nourished. Stressful events, such as a high fever, infection, malnutrition, or excessive dieting can cause severe hair loss six weeks to three months after the event. Hair loss is also a symptom of several autoimmune diseases.
Diet and Healthy Hair
A highly processed diet may lack needed vitamins and nutrients resulting in malnutrition. Without proper nutrition, the body uses available nutrients to first nourish more important functions that keep us alive, although we may suffer hair loss and other health problems.
Colorful fruits and vegetables and omega-3 fatty acids are known to provide healthy-hair nutrition.
A nutritious diet that contains adequate calories and protein is crucial. Proflex20 is an easy and delicious way to add necessary protein to the diet.
Vitality Coldwater Omega-3 contains the ideal balance of DHA and EPA fatty acids.
Hair, Skin & Nail was developed to protect and support the growth and strength of hair, skin, and nails with natural botanicals, essential micronutrients, and natural antioxidants.
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.
Heart Disease Indicator
Hair loss, along with other signs of aging, may indicate the development of heart disease. In this study researchers looked at young men with premature grey hair and male pattern baldness and found a higher risk for developing coronary artery disease. The researchers recommend that young men who are turning grey and developing male pattern be monitored for coronary artery disease.

Good to Know
A news article I recently read truly makes me realize that what is good for one part of the body is often good for the rest of the body. It also makes us marvel at the "world" of microbes that live in us and on us, and how instead of killing these little helpers we need to nurture them.
The article tells the story of two men who battled with severe diarrhea caused by an infection with Clostridium difficile also known as C-diff. They also had serious hair loss. Both men were treated with a fecal microbiota transplant, and as a surprising side effect both men regrew their hair!
The Melaleuca Wellness Guide tells us that beneficial bacteria help us digest food, regulate hormones, produce vitamins, and enhance vitamin and mineral absorption. Since both health-benefiting bacteria and harmful bacteria reside in our digestive tract, adding probiotics (good bacteria) helps crowd out harmful bacteria and, oddly enough, produce natural antibiotics which inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria throughout the GI tract. Taking probiotics can add beneficial bacteria to our microbiome.
Florify contains 10 billion colony units from four different Lactobacillus strains and three different Bifidobacterium strains.

OMG!!!! I have been using Melaleuca products and taking the Vitamins faithfully since 2006. When Melaleuca developed the Hair Skin and Nails product I started taking that as well. I have had wimpy thin scraggly hair and very brittle nails all my life, even with taking the Melaleuca nutritionals. Well let me tell you, I will be 60 years old next year and I have full thick hair down below the middle of my back now. People comment how thick and healthy it looks. They never did that before. And my nails are getting much better. Instead of keeping my hair short for appearances, I can grow it as long as I like!!!

I am so happy with Melaleuca's shampoos. I have limp, lifeless hair and have had such a problem finding a shampoo that would give my hair some 'lift' and 'life'. I especially love the Sei Bella Volume Shampoo, with all the added extras, and the Conditioner that does for my hair what I want it to do.
The Melaleuca Wellness Guide has such a wealth of product information. I use it all the time and I make sure I give one to each of my new customers to help them see the value in being a Melaleuca customer. Thanks again Melaleuca!
Love Affinia Hair care!! My daughter has very thick hair and it didn't matter how much she brushed it, it always looked like it needed to be brushed. She used the Affinia for the first time and her hair was so silky smooth. The next morning she woke up and it looked beautiful! She didn't even brush it and it still looked great. Love it!!
I love the Sei Bella Hair products! I use them in my Hair Salon. My personal favorite for my clients is the prep spray. I have had really damaged hair become healthy and shiny again by protecting it from the abuse of flat irons and curling irons. My personal favorites for my own hair are the Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner (works great on my curly hair) and the Defining Gel that has a firm hold without making it look too stiff. And the best part is people telling me my hair smells great! Thanks Sei Bella!
We are learning more every day what great products Melaleuca sells, often getting unexpected benefits! I used to use one of the higher-priced store-bought shampoo/conditioner lines and always had lots of hair in the shower drain. After we had been shopping with Melaleuca for awhile, and using the Affinia and Sei Bella shampoos and conditioners, my husband who regularly cleans out the shower drain mentioned that there was hardly any hair in the drain anymore! I was thrilled because that meant my hair wasn't thinning nearly so fast! I had just thought that losing that much hair was normal for my age! Definitely an unexpected benefit! Thanks for your helpful and informative articles!
