“Crowning glory” is a term used to describe our hair; it’s pretty appropriate, considering how having luscious and healthy-looking hair can make a huge difference to our overall appearance, as well as help us better express our personality through different styles.
This is why hair loss issues can be such a pressing concern for those who suffer from it. Unlike other beauty woes such as pimples and pigmentation, hair loss issues are more irksome because you can’t easily conceal it.
There are many common hair loss treatments you may have tried: incorporating a hair loss shampoo that has received great reviews, splurging on a series of scalp treatments, or even experimenting with alternative remedies such as washing your hair with rice water or rubbing your scalp with hard liquor.
However, while some see improvements, there are others who have tried everything and still don’t see results.
3 reasons why your hair loss remedies aren’t working
Here are some likely reasons why the remedies you’ve tried are not working.
You are lacking hair-boosting nutrition
As cliched as it may sound, you are what you eat.
Just like how we load up on foods with antioxidants or vitamin C to improve our immune system, you can consume foods with nutrition that can help with boosting your hair’s growth and reducing hair fall.
Biotin (vitamin B7), for instance, is one of the nutrients that helps improve hair growth by stimulating keratin production in hair and increasing the rate of follicle growth.
Foods that are rich in biotin include egg yolks, livers, and avocados, just to name a few.
Having insufficient hair-boosting nutrition in your diet can cause your hair and scalp treatments to work more slowly than they should.
You have elevated levels of stress
Both short-term and chronic stress trigger the production of cortisol (also known as the “stress hormone”) that can lead to hair loss.
Elevated cortisol levels cause the reduction in synthesis of hair cells and accelerate the breakdown of hair-growth cells in the scalp, deterring the normal activity of hair follicles.
What this means is that even if the products or treatments you’re using are good, they may be prevented to work as they should when you’re going through too much stress.
You’re genetically predisposed to hair loss
Genetics play a big part in hair loss, and is typically caused by the presence of DHT, an androgen that is responsible for giving men their male characteristics. While men are more susceptible to it, women may be affected by it too.
Those who are pre-disposed to hair loss concerns often find it an uphill task to improve the condition with products and treatments that only work on the surface.
How to overcome these problems?
The first part of this article may sound like all gloom and doom, but – hey, chin up! – we have good news.
Multi-award-winning hair growth supplement, MIRIQA Hair has upgraded their formula and recently launched MIRIQA Hair Extra Strength.
If you were already aware of the original product (check out our review of MIRIQA Hair to see how impressed we were!), then you’ll probably be blown away by the newest version.
How does MIRIQA Hair Extra Strength help?
Like MIRIQA Hair, MIRIQA Hair Extra Strength is packed with clinically-proven nutraceuticals to deliver growth – in extra doses! It also contains two new star ingredients: KSM-66 Winter Cherry and Curcumin Bio-max, which are extensively researched for reduction in cortisol (stress hormones) levels, to build greater resistance to stress-induced hair loss, and to promote better, healthier hair growth.
Besides these two ingredients, MIRIQA Hair Extra Strength also contains Tocotrienol, Tripeptide Collagen, Saw Palmetto Berries, Keratin Forte, and Biotin. These are proven ingredients that are known for helping to reduce hair loss, increase hair strength, and inhibiting DHT formation.
In other words, the supplement is turning around the three issues we mentioned earlier in the article:
- It supplements your diet with hair-boosting nutrition you may not be getting sufficiently from your meals
- It helps reduce cortisol level so that you can beat the hair-growth rut you’ve been facing due to stress
- It inhibits DHT formation to help those who are genetically pre-disposed to hair loss so they can see hair-growth results
What’s more, as the ingredients also help with nail health, you’ll also receive the much-welcomed “side effect” of stronger nails when you take the supplement!
Simply take two capsules a day, preferably after breakfast, and you’ll be able to see results over time. The supplements can help enhance the effectiveness of hair loss products and treatments you’re already going through but are also great taken on their own as a way to kick off your hair growth journey!
MIRIQA Hair Extra Strength is a clinic-exclusive product that retails at S$155 per box, available at most aesthetics clinics. Find the nearest clinic to you here or check with your family doctor, aesthetic doctor, or dermatologist about it.
