Amazingly one of the cheapest methods for
delaying the onset of male and female pattern baldness and preventing hair loss
in general is simply by washing your hair on a regular basis. These conclusions
were reached by a leading university after substantial testing. The findings
were that by washing your hair at least twice a week you can substantially
retard the progression of pattern baldness and the hair thinning process in
general for years. The studies did include male and female participants. The
definitive reason for this reduction in hair fallout was not determined but the
reasons for it could be multiple in origin.
At Trilshun we have always maintained, among many things, that regular
cleansing of the scalp is essential for thinning hair prevention. The trick
though is determining the correct amount of shampooing and conditioning for your
particular scalp. Many people are able to cleanse the scalp on daily basis with
no ill effects allowing for a fuller appearance of the hair. On the other hand
there are many who encounter excess oiliness and flatness after repeated daily
shampooing. The reason for this is when scalp oils are stripped during the
cleaning process the human body compensates with the extra production of sebum.
This is a natural and normal process for the protection of the skin and hair but
similar to acne the process can trigger the excess secretion of oils in some
people. With time and experimentation most people learn what the best schedule
is for themselves. If you do encounter excessive oiliness it is easy to return
the scalp to normal by just adjusting your hair care regime for a few weeks.
The chief reason though shampooing leads to a reduction in thinning hair can
be found in the composition of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) itself. As many know
this is the suggested reason for most pattern hair loss. Since DHT must combine
with enzymes in the scalp to do its damage a simple method to counteract it is
by thoroughly cleaning the scalp. Again the trick here as mentioned above is not
to dry out the scalp or damage the condition of the present hair. Newer hair
care products now combine detergents that are less abrasive to the scalp as well
as an assortment of herbs, ingredients, and botanicals that effectively
counteract the effects of this DHT. Older hair loss shampoos in an attempt to
neutralize this DHT often “fried” or “blistered” the scalp to the point
it was often painful to the touch.
