- As many as two-thirds of post-menopausal women suffer from menopausal hair loss
- Changes to thickness and quality of women’s hair often happen in the months and sometimes years leading up to the menopause
Grow by Hair Gain is a ground-breaking new supplement, harnessing the power of the pea shoot, to give incredible hair growth results of up to 78% in just one month of use.
This game changing product was designed specifically for the 8 million UK women who suffer from hair loss at some point in their life. One of the biggest contributors to this is the menopause. This can cause thinning and even bald spots, denting a woman’s confidence at what is often already a very emotional time.
Shelley Hemstock, 49, experienced this hormonal hair thinning and hair breakage as her body transitioned into the menopause. She found hair strands would break at around ear level and never grow any longer. After using Hair Gain for two months, she noticed individual strands were stronger. Even her hairdresser commented on how less wispy and fine her hair had become.
“My hair is much less fragile,” Shelley says. “I’ve got fine regrowth around my temple on the sides of my head where my hair was receding. The hair loss made me feel old before my time. Now it’s the longest and strongest it’s been in years and looks so much better.”
So why do women lose their hair during the menopause?
Research into menopausal hair loss strongly suggests that women start to lose their hair and see a difference in the quality due to the reduction of oestrogen and progesterone.
These changes can often start to occur in the months and sometimes years before the start of the menopause. Typically, menopause begins around the age of 50. Although bald patches are rare, unlike with men, changes are most often seen in the hairline. With thinning on the front, sides and top of the head.
What should someone do if they’re suffering from suspected menopausal hair loss?
“Regaining hair loss can be achieved,” says Registered Nutritional Therapist Nicola Shubrook from Urban Wellness, “but it often needs more of a ‘whole body’ approach rather than just trying to target the symptom of hair loss alone. Diet, stress, gut health and stress all play a key part in hair growth, not to mention increased anxiety, weight gain and affected sleep with hot flushes which all contribute to stress -which can also have a knock-on effect on hair loss as well.
“Get the basics right,” Nicola advises. “Make a real effort to stay hydrated, eat a balanced, whole food diet that is high in proteins, good fats and fruit and vegetables. Stay away from the sugars, keep an eye on alcohol and exercise regularly. Sleep is imperative as well and we know that this is playing an increasingly important role in health.”
For those of us approaching menopausal age, what can we do to reduce the risk of menopausal hair loss?
Expert nutritionist Nicola continues: “Eating a nutrient-dense diet, one low in sugar and processed foods, getting a good night’s sleep and incorporating movement into your day such as walking will help keep stress in check, and encourage healthy digestion and hormone metabolism.”
If you want to encourage follicles to regenerate, she advices we consume: “proteins such as eggs, beans, legumes and oily fish, antioxidant-rich fruit and vegetables especially berries, green leafy veg and red/orange coloured vegetables including peppers and sweet potatoes.”
The biggest tip to keep hair thick and full as possible?
Nicola is all about a reduced sugar diet. Her top food tips? Stay away from too much “sugar, artificial sweeteners, fried and processed foods, as well as excess alcohol. All these foods lack nutrients and put extra burden on the body. Especially the digestive system and liver which can contribute to hair loss.”
Along with a healthy diet, Grow by Hair Gain works to give visibly thicker and stronger hair in from the inside out. With just two capsules taken daily the supplement can help rebalance disruptions within the hair growth cycle. The capsules contain the exclusive AnaGain™ ingredient, derived from the organic pea shoot, along with zinc and Biotin.
How does it work?
The common pea shoot is not something automatically associated with beauty. Yet the powerful nutrients it contains protect the young plants from UV rays, disease, damage and herbivores. Translate this to hair and the power of the pea has a mighty impact.
And it’s the AnaGain™ ingredient from the pea shoot that Hair Gain has exclusively harnessed within this product. AnaGain™ works by stimulating specific particles within the dermal papilla cells to kick-start hair growth. Specifically, these molecules are Noggin, a protein that shortens the telogen hair loss phase. Secondly, Fibroblast growth factor-7 (FGF7), which promotes best possible conditions for the anagen hair growth phase.
Each capsule contains a formula of 10 strong ingredients. All the micronutrients your hair could possibly need to flourish: vitamins, minerals, botanicals & aminos as well as biotin and zinc. These make it a fantastic all-round supplement for anyone suffering with hair loss.
Lucy Palmer, Founder of Hair Gain, suffered horrifically from hair loss after having her daughter. “We mainly associate hair loss with men, when relating the topic to women it can be a bit of a taboo subject and it shouldn’t be. 8 million women will suffer from hair loss at some point in their lifetime in the UK. Unfortunately, menopausal hair loss is a common experience.
“We know from talking to our customers that losing your hair as well as experiencing the hormonal changes can have a devastating effect on someone’s self-esteem. That’s why I developed this product. I could see there was a real need to not only offer a solution but one that works quickly and gives outstanding results.”
