Hair Loss - Causes and Cures  

As part of your hair’s natural regrowth cycle, on average, you shed between 50 and 100 strands of hair per day, If you notice more hair in the plug hole after washing your hair, more hair than usual in your brush, or thinning along your temple or various parts of your scalp, then you may be experiencing abnormal hair loss, which can be treated by ProTress Essential Scalp Therapy Energising Shampoo and Lotion.

Your diet will affect the growth, health and shine of your hair. The nutrients in the blood, particularly protein, are transferred to the hair bulb, resulting in the formation of hair cells. Nutrients form the basis of hair creation. So, a poor, un- nutritious diet that is low in protein, will effect the amount of nutrients in the blood, thereby influencing the rate of hair growth negatively.

Stress and tiredness will have an adverse effect on the growth, health and vitality of your hair. For example, if you are stressed it might follow that you tense your body. When your body is tense, your scalp tightens and the blood capillaries contract which reduces the amount of oxygen and nutrients that can reach the hair follicles, hindering hair growth. Oxygen and nutrients are vital to your hair’s growth and health. ProTress Energising Shampoo and Lotion helps to counter the negative effects that stress has on your hair by facilitating the circulation of nutrients and oxygen to the hair bulb, stimulating hair growth.


Hair growth can be effected negatively by menopause, polycystic ovaries and thyroids disease. Excessive use of prescription drugs can also cause hair loss because the chemicals get into your blood stream and get transferred to your hair bulb, contaminating your hair structure. ProTress Essential Scalp Therapy strengthens remaining hair by rebalancing and purifying the scalp, reactivating peripheral micro circulation.


Prior to menopause, women produce high levels of oestrogen which protects the hair roots. Oestrogen helps to keep hair strong, preventing breakage. 

When women enter the phase of menopause the amount of oestrogen they produce dramatically falls, making hair weaker, thinner and prone to fall.
