ANDROGENETIC ALOPECIA

The Androgenetic Alopecia is a scalp imperfections that starts with a thinning and thinning hair, followed by a loss with no regrowth. Affects men since a young age and sometimes women with thin and subtle hormonal frameworks.

What causes the premature hair loss?
Scientific researches have determined that testosterone excessive production derived hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), might act on the hair follicle. The conversion of a hormone to the other is due to the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme which is increased in balding hair follicles of people affected by Androgenetic Alopecia. A high quantity of dihydrotestosterone promotes hair weakening and thinning by decreasing its life cycle: the hair germinative papilla looses its reproductive power between 2 to 5 years and produces miniaturized hair (vellus hair). Normally an hair can fall out and grow back up to 25 times into the same follicle and each cycle can change from 3 to 8 years. The different phases of the hair life cycle (anagen-catagen-telogen) might last for years instead of just lasting a few months and produce strong, healthy and thick hair. When DHT is produced in high quantity, the follicle finishes its supply of 25 cycles between 2 and 5 years. The cycles then get shorter and shorter and start to provide vellus hair. If for any reason, including the hormonal one, many follicles get into this phase we won’t have a normal turnover anymore, but an "abundant hair loss" instead, which is a bad thinning called baldness.

What is the treatment?
During the first phase, the first aim is for a good and effective action to prevent hair loss. After this, the process that reduces the hair size and its life must be inverted to promote the hair regrowth. SERENOA REPENS is a plant containing an active ingredient which is an 5-alpha-reductase enzyme inhibitor, responsible for the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. SERENOA action increases hair life by reducing the quantity of DHT in the hair follicle. The use of TRIKOS Serenoa Drops (Gocce alla Serenoa) allows the hair follicle, which is still not completely atrophied, start producing hair again. The miniaturizing phase promoted by DHT hormone is gradually reduced, the hair cycles are always longer and keratin structure is changed. Hair are thicker, shiny, less greasy and more elastic. Serenoa repens also helps to improve Alopecia when caused by a slimming diet, stress, surgery operation, shock, infections, telogen defluvium postpartum or post breast-feeding, wrong hair treatment (poor-quality shampoo, colourants and perms, thin plats, heating, etc.). Even if these causes are not typical of the androgenetic alopecia they need a medical advice. On a topical level hair loss can be stopped and hair growth restarted by applying cosmeceutic products such as TRIKOS VIALS (TRIKOS Fiale) for inflamed or reddened scalp or TRIKOS Serenoa and Aloe Plus Drops (Plus Gocce) together with other substances which are synergic between themselves. These compounds containing SERENOA REPENS enriched with ALOE, GINSENG, BILBERRY, SOY, HAMAMELIS VIRGINIANA, URTICA DIOICA, NASTURTIUM, provide mineral salts, vitamins, essential and secondary amino acids, fat acids, microcirculation stimulating substances, hair substantivating and polishing, other substances with proven antiphlogistic and depurative effects that normalises scalp activity.

Can a food supplement be useful?
Yes, because TRIKOS Hair Food Supplement (TRIKOS Integratore) restores the optimum conditions that stop hair loss, regulates the sebaceous gland activity, provides the indispensable elements which are necessary to build and compacting hair shaft’s horny lamellas. Taken for 60 days twice a year after having applied the topical use compounds for a few months. TRIKOS INTEGRATORE is a great help to keep an ideal condition for the natural hair regrowth. It also contains vitamins and minerals.

What shampoo can be used if hair are in trouble?
Nowadays most of the shampoos on the market contain sodium laurylsulfate. Specialists studies of the cutaneous and hair cleansing have pointed out that washing with sodium laurylsulfate can destroy the epidermic barrier and the sheath which envelops the hair. This damage is increased by frequent washes.
