Hair Loss / Thinning 

Hair loss or hair thinning is a common problem, and it can have a huge impact on a person’s life. Generally speaking, it is normal to lose 100-150 strands of hair a day. However, when hair thinning or hair loss becomes a problem, this is when we start to lose more than the normal amount of hair loss a day. The commonest causes for hair loss are alopecia areata, male pattern and female pattern hair loss.

When we think of hair, we think of all the individual strands on our heads and elsewhere. That’s only half of the story. In fact, did you know that every strand of hair that we can actually see is dead? The living part lives just under the surface of the skin, and that’s known as the hair follicle.

Hair follicles are the beginning and the end of the hair growth story. They are responsible for the three distinct phases of the hair growth cycle:

  • Anagen: the active growth phase of hair, in which healthy hair grows roughly 0.5 inches a month for 3 to 5 years

  • Catagen: a short, 1 to 2 week transitional phase

  • Telogen: a resting phase in which your hair naturally falls out and begins to shed, which takes approximately 3 to 4 months

For a healthy person, the cycle is completely natural. Hair growing, shedding, and regrowing is a normal process. When the cycle is disrupted however, it’s a genuine cause for concern.

The hair follicle and the maintenance of its health are the single most important factors in understanding, preventing and treating hair loss.

At Joanne Helen Beauty Clinic we have several products and treatments that can help to treat the follicle, thus improving and restoring 'normal' hair growth. 

Each client is treated with an individual treatment plan. Please book for a no- obligation consultation to see which treatment would benefit you.
