Common Hair Issues

The great news is that the average person has thousands of hair follicles and each one goes through the growth cycle at different times (about 100,000 on average!).  So, usually a healthy head of hair will shed a relatively small amount per day (up to 80). But life happens and there a number of factors that can drive up that daily shedding number to alarming levels. If you start to notice more hair fall or breakage then usual, take a closer look. You may have one (or more) of the common hair loss conditions.

Hair Breakage

How it Happens

When the outer cuticle falls apart, your hair can get dry and eventually separate, leading to damage. This tends to happen at the end of the hair shaft and can cause split ends. Split ends can be verydamaging as the facture worksits way up the hair shaft. Styling damage can also cause fractures along the length of the strand.This type of breakage is due to weakened hair (cortex) or cuticle damaged from chemicals, styling or even the environment.  When this happens, the breakage is usually accompanied by other symptoms, such as frizz and dryness.

The Lucid Bliss hair care system is balanced with moisturizing and strengthening capabilities that help fortify strands to help retain length.

Hair Thinning

How it Happens

Changes to the growth cycle or congested hair follicles can lead to thinning.  This appears when hair falls out from the root and hair fullness and density is visibly reduced. There are a number of reasons why people may lose their hair, in some cases genetics (like hereditary or onset physical conditions) come to play and in other cases it is due to external factors (like stress, diet, improper styling practices). Whatever the case, with hair thinning, he growth phase of each hair gradually becomes shorter, and the resting phase becomes longer. Eventually the hairs that are growing become so short that they barely emerge from their hair follicle.

How We Help

The Lucid Bliss hair care system is formulated with healing aloe vera and revitalizing menthol, which is derived from peppermint oil. This energizing plant-based ingredient star helps stimulate blood flow to deliver vital nutrients to hair roots. This helps optimize the growth phase for healthy looking hair. Aloe Vera is reknown for containing proteolytic enzymes, which help heal and repair the damaged cells in your scalp. This also improves the health of thehair follicles and indirectly boosts healthy and faster hair growth.

Alopecia

How it Happens

There are seven different types of alopecia. Some forms are permanent and driven by real, physical conditions. Other forms of alopecia such as traction, postpartum may be semi-permanent or treated and hair can be restored.  Sometimes, people may think what they are experiencing is alopecia but the condition is actually telogen effluvium, which is defined as hair shedding lasting less than 6 months.  Regardless, if you think you have a problem with alopecia we highly recommend speaking with a medical professional or visiting a stylist who specializes in scalp problems.
