With 1.8 million Instagram posts and counting, the #hairloss hashtag is one of the few things that has genuinely thrived in the past year. It’s a predicament that many people, particularly women, have agonised over in recent months, as their brushes and shower drains fill with tangles of hair.

This phenomenon is not all in our heads, though. It is yet another frustrating by-product of both immense stress and inflammation from the pandemic. Known as telogen effluvium in the medical world, this particular form of hair loss pushes more hairs into the shedding phase of the hair growth life cycle.

Of course, there are more factors at play when it comes to hair fall. Ahead, we share the top five causes of hair loss as well as a supplement that can help with hair growth.

Pssst! Keep reading, because two members from the Daily Vanity team will be sharing their reviews on the Miriqa Professional Hair Nutrition Supplement.

What causes hair loss?

1. Stress

As we mentioned, the link between stress and hair loss is well researched and proven. This ties back to balance in the body, specifically in relation to the nervous system and the adrenal glands. These hormone regulators will be tipped out of balance due to high stress, which results in hair thinning.

2. Hormones

Hormones play a huge role in beauty, from influencing collagen production to triggering acne and, yes, hair loss. One of the main hormones that influences hair growth is cortisol (the stress hormone). Thyroid and sex hormones also affect hair growth. For instance, estrogen is connected to keratin production, which is why pregnant women may experience lush, thick hair that sheds shortly after birth.

3. Vitamin deficiency

Since your hair is a reflection of your diet, inadequate intake of certain nutrients may affect your appearance. If you’re not getting a robust, diverse diet with lots of fruits and vegetables, high-quality protein, and healthy fats, you may see physical signs like shedding, dullness, and breakage.

Some of the most important nutrients that your hair need include iron, zinc, fatty acids, vitamin D, and biotin, so getting enough of these daily is crucial.

4. Environmental aggressors

Exposure to common air pollutants can also decrease the protein in our hair follicles that are responsible for hair growth. Hair is not comprised of living cells, but its keratin-based structures are still susceptible to damage caused by free radicals from air pollution.

5. Hair follicle damage

When your hair follicles are damaged, hair may cease to grow. This happens primarily because of repeated stress from harsh brushing, tight hairstyles, or inflammation from product buildup. If the buildup is extreme, it can even pull the hair down because there’s so much inflammation surrounding the hair follicle.

About Miriqa Professional Hair Nutrition Supplement

Besides the five causes we shared above, there are many other factors that can lead to hair loss and are not within our control – after all, it is impossible to stand in the way of our genetic makeup, sun exposure, and ageing.

Curious to know what’s in each capsule? Here are the five key ingredients that bolster healthy hair growth from within.

  • Tocotrienol: Naturally derived from palm fruits, this vitamin E complex protects the hair against oxidative stress. Its potent antioxidant properties repair damaged hair follicles and reduce free radical damage of the scalp.
  • Saw Palmetto Berries: This ingredient blocks 5-alpha-reductase, which is an enzyme that converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is a naturally occurring hormone in the body that can shrink hair follicles and thin hair shafts. So by reducing and regulating the amount of DHT levels in the body, hair is able to grow out healthier and stronger.
  • Tripeptide Collagen: Collagen is key to a strong and healthy scalp. This unique tripeptide collagen has a low molecular weight, which makes it very easy to absorb into the body compared to other collagen products with larger molecules.
  • Keratin Forte: Keratin is the structural building block that makes up your hair, skin, and nails. Extensive clinical studies have shown that Keratin Forte effectively reduces hair loss, intensifies hair strength, and restores shine.
  • Biotin: As we mentioned, biotin, also known as vitamin B7, is an essential micronutrient for healthy hair. It helps the body metabolise amino acids while strengthening your hair’s existing keratin structure.

All you have to do is consume two capsules a day, so your hair and scalp serums can take a backseat while the Miriqa Professional Hair Nutrition Supplement gets the job done, fuss-free.

Miriqa Professional Hair Nutrition Supplement retails for $125 (a box of 60 capsules) and is available at Miriqa’s website, as well as selected spas and clinics.

Miriqa Professional Hair Nutrition Supplement review: What did we really think about it?

Miriqa Professional Hair Nutrition Supplement review with pills

To see if the product could live up to its claims, we got two members from the DV team to put the Miriqa Professional Hair Nutrition Supplement through a rigorous three-month test and share their experiences and results with us.

Three months after I gave birth, I started noticing signs of hair fall. Different hairstylists have told me that my hair seems to be thinning around the top of my head, which is why I try to comb my hair over to cover the thinning spots when I’m outdoors.

When I received a box of the Miriqa Professional Hair Nutrition Supplement, I thought its packaging looked really professional – almost like a salon-grade product. However, the size of the pill was a little intimidating at first, so it took me some time to get used to consuming it daily.

Within the first week, I experienced less hair breakage, which really took me by surprise. After three to four weeks, I saw shinier, more hydrated hair, so I was eager to continue the trial to see what it could do for my hair.

After two months, I noticed less hair fall in the shower after shampooing and as I was combing through my wet hair. My hair felt much softer and smoother too.

Now, my hair looks fuller at the crown. In fact, when I went for a haircut recently, my hairstylist said there seemed to be more baby hairs growing! My hair is more resilient to mechanical stress like brushing and combing as well, and it looks and feels stronger and healthier.

During the trial, the supplement did not upset my stomach too, and I liked that it is drug-free. With supplements, my greatest concern is the possible side effects, but I didn’t experience any of that.

The Miriqa Professional Hair Nutrition Supplement seemed safe to consume, and it worked – slowly but surely!

Overall rating: 4/5

I first noticed signs of hair loss about two years ago, which definitely affected my self-esteem and the way I style my hair. I tried to cover the visible portion of my scalp where possible too.

After just a month of consuming the Miriqa Professional Hair Nutrition Supplement, I saw an increase in hair growth. Two months later, I woke up to fewer strands on my pillow (one to two strands), compared to before where I could spot 10 strands in the morning.

I experienced less breakage and an overall boost in hair health after two months too. Although my hair loss isn’t severe to begin with, I saw a visible improvement and my hair looks fuller at the crown now.

My hair looks shinier, and it’s much easier to style and manage. Plus, I noticed faster hair growth after taking the supplement. Even my damaged strands look healthier and less frizzy.

I liked how easy it was to consume, and the supplement didn’t upset my stomach at any point during the trial. Besides healthier hair growth, I also noticed that my nails became stronger, which was an unexpected benefit.
