Healthy Hair Tips for Over 40s

While we are young our growth hormones are on the offensive – slow hair growth is something young people almost never have to worry about. However, as we get older, and particularly after age 40, these hormones slow down considerably.

Healthy hair growth is a goal that many of us strive for, but not many of us fully understand. To begin with, we need to understand why it happens –

Recurring breakage and slow hair growth is an unfortunate tragedy that many of us will face at some point in our lives. Aging follicles, hormonal imbalances and genetics all play a part in this process, but there is still good news. If you vary your lifestyle in specific ways, you can work to ensure your hair continues growing thick and strong.

If your slow hair growth is purely due to your genetics then there is unfortunately not much that can be done. However, if it is the effect of a multitude of other factors, there are ways in which to counteract it.

  1. Getting older means a slowing of your metabolism and a greater overall amount of energy your body needs in order to function as it once did in its youth. Bearing this in mind, it is imperative that your diet consists of healthy vitamins and minerals including Biotin, iron, calcium etc.
  2. Avoid drinking and smoking! Particularly the latter as it adds nasty carcinogens to your bloodstream which will debilitate not only your chances of healthy hair growth, but your overall health in general.
  3. Supplement your lifestyle with the FAST shampoo and conditioner to stimulate healthy hair growth safely and effectively. We use natural vitamins and amino acids in our formula to ensure that slow hair growth is counteracted.
  4. Avoid adding any type of chemicals to your hair that aren’t ensured to be safe. These could damage your hair follicles and reduce your chance of healthy hair growth dramatically.
  5. Try and stay calm! The cliche of ‘being so stressed your hair falls out’ has a certain degree of truth to it. Multiple studies have linked stress levels with hair growth and the rate of hair growth.
  6. Take multivitamins to supplement those essential vitamins and minerals that you may be finding hard to get through your normal diet.

Remember that no matter how old you are it is never too late to begin taking care of your body. It is indeed somewhat of a lengthy process that requires both discipline and time, but if you truly are committed to seeing healthy hair growth then it is well worth the effort.

Important Tips For Healthy Hair Growth

As people begin to age they often suffer from slow growing hair, or in more extreme cases, balding. The chances of this happening to you are mostly contingent on your genetics; however, that is not to say it is a waste of time to encourage healthy hair growth while you still can. Recent studies have shown that people who actively work to encourage healthy hair growth have a 23% less likely chance of balding before age 50.

What Can You Do?

Using the FAST formula will indeed stimulate healthy hair growth, but should be used in combination with a series of lifestyle choices to maximise potential hair growth.

Eating healthy is the foundation of almost any change you could wish to make to your aesthetic. Your body is only able to change in proportion to the amount of energy it has for that change; like the way a car can only run as long as it has fuel. In order to supply your body with the appropriate amount of fuel, you will need to make sure you take in essential vitamins and minerals. Making sure iron and zinc – found in beef, pork, beans and mushrooms is a part of your everyday diet will go a long way towards stimulating hair growth.

Scalp massages can also be of great use. Using any natural oils, massage the scalp to increase blood flow to the area – in turn promoting healthy hair growth! Lavender and Rosemary oils are highly recommended as they are packed with antioxidants that purify the hair and encourage it to grow.

Using the FAST formula is a perfect way to supplement your lifestyle changes. It’s important that the word “supplement” is stressed as, if you use FAST in isolation, you could be limiting the progress you see. If you are in fact using FAST as a supplement then you are well on your way to  healthy, beautiful hair!

What Shouldn’t You Do?

Modern fashion trends often involve dying or bleaching your hair. If you are committed to making your hair grow faster, avoid these products at all costs. They are rife with harmful chemicals that are counter-productive to healthy hair growth.

Recent studies have also shown an excess exposure to ultraviolet light is also damaging to hair growth. Even if you aren’t trying to stimulate hair growth, an excess of UV light is harsh on your skin and in worst case scenarios can lead to skin cancer. You should always protect yourself with sunscreen and a hat. The latter is especially important if you want to encourage healthy hair growth while spending time in the sun.

Identifying Alopecia – Stunted Hair Growth

The FAST formula is indeed extremely potent for encouraging healthy hair growth – however this comes on the condition that your hair does not suffer from any tertiary ailments such as alopecia.

Alopecia is a condition that, depending on its severity, can make you lose hair, make your hair grow far slower and in some rarer cases destroy the hair follicle completely. There are two different types of alopecia-

Scarring Alopecia

Otherwise known as cicatricial alopecia, this rarer type of ailment completely destroys the sebaceous (oil) gland within the hair follicle and leaves severe scarring in place.

People can sometimes misinterpret cicatricial alopecia for naturally slow growing hair due to the similar nature of each ailment. However, if you feel any severe itching or burning sensations in addition to progressive hair loss then you may want to check with your local doctor what is causing it.

Non-Scarring Alopecia

There are more common forms of alopecia and affects quite a great number of people – all of which are highly treatable. One common type, Telogen Effluvium, causes slow hair growth and the widespread thinning of hair and is usually caused by hormonal or emotional changes. This can happen during times of great stress or pregnancy.

Another type, androgenetic alopecia, naturally makes the hair grow more slowly. There are a variety of medical treatments for ailments such as this which either supplement or suppress a certain chemical that is being released by the body in an effort to encourage healthy hair growth.

Overall

The FAST formula helps regrow hair up to 99% faster but will not be able to do so if you suffer from ailments that debilitate hair growth such as alopecia. If you suffer from slow growing hair or are beginning to notice hair loss, stay vigilant and perhaps go visit your local GP to ensure that there are no extra complications that may restrict the potency of the FAST formula.

The Effects of Dandruff on Hair Growth?

maxresdefaultDandruff is a common scalp disorder characterized by itching and flaking of the skin in the scalp. Dandruff affects almost half of the population at the post pubertal age regardless of sex and ethnicity. This condition is not contagious and is rarely serous but it can be embarrassing.

One common cause of dandruff when the oil known as ‘sebum’ is produced too much. Our hair follicles naturally produce this oil to keep our hair clean. Quite commonly, many people will over produce this oil as a result of the environment they live in. For example, in cold areas, your hair follicles are forced into producing more of this oil, yet when you return to a warmer place, this chemical is continually produced in greater than necessary quantities.

Although sebum is indeed a useful oil, too much of it is counter-productive. Too much sebum  on the scalp creates a blanket of oil preventing dead skin cells from shedding, this causes greasy lumps of dandruff on the scalp.  If not treated, this will cause severe itching and constantly scratching the scalp can pull out hairs from the roots, it can also damage the hair follicles.

The best way to control dandruff is to keep the scalp clean and this is easily done by washing your hair daily. In addition to keeping your hair moisturised, it will also wash off all dead skin cells. It is advisable to use a deep cleansing shampoo and conditioner like FAST. Through adding other essential oils and vitamins while simultaneously cleansing the scalp of any impurities, the FAST formula can help to regulate sebum levels and reduce dandruff.

 

How to Accelerate Hair Growth?

downloadThe Problem Many of Us Have Today

Slow growing hair is a phenomena that afflicts so many people at some point in their lives. As we grow older, it becomes more and more challenging to maintain a healthy, vibrant appearance. Have you ever suffered from dry, limp hair that just looks lifeless? It can make you feel very self conscious. Great looking hair on the other hand makes you feel so much happier and full of confidence. There is nothing better than a passing comment on your hair.

Often, people attempt to rectify their slow hair growth with second-rate products that only end up doing more harm than good. These products have harmful chemicals that only stunt the progress of hair growth, or even in some cases, destroy the hair follicle completely. On the other hand, FAST’s clinically tested formula is guaranteed to ensure speedy and healthy hair growth that doesn’t harm your hair. We even have a money-back guarantee to ensure that if you aren’t satisfied with your hair regrowth progress, you lose absolutely nothing.

How it Actually Works

One of the main ingredients in the FAST product is known as Cocamide MEA which encourages hair to grow thicker and more luscious. This chemical has been used for centuries in skin-care products and is proven to be effective. When combined with Soduim Lauryl Sulfae (SLS) a dirt resistant oil-based layer covers your scalp so that hair growth is not obstructed by dirt.

Another example of these vitamins is Panthenol. Derived from the vitamin D-5, Panthenol’s molecular structure allows it to attract moisture from the air that bind with water molecules. When added to hair, it works as a moisturising agent, ensuring that your scalp is sufficiently hydrated as so that hair growth rate reaches its optimum speed. Combined with various other supplements, the FAST formula works to make sure your hair’s growth is stimulated as much as possible.

Check out some of the other ingredients in the FAST formula, all of which are very healthy for hair growth.
