Hair Growth Cycle
Hair is an integral part of our identity, so it can be extremely confronting if it starts to lose condition, thin or fall out.
As part of the hair growth cycle, it is normal to shed 50-100 scalp hairs every day. This cycle, that takes several years to complete, has three main phases as shown in the diagram below.
First in the hair growth cycle is the growth or anagen phase when a hair is nourished through its root deep in the follicle. This can last from two to seven years. Second is the short degenerative or catagen phase when hair detaches from its nourishing blood supply causing it to stop growing and become a dead hair, also called a club hair. And thirdly, the resting or telogen phase which lasts a few months, when detached hairs start to fall out.
Hair loss can become visible when there are too many resting hair follicles and the longer they remain resting, the greater the chance of permanent and irreversible hair loss. Fusion® Health hair products with Phytofol® have been developed to help regenerate hair follicles in this critical phase of the hair growth cycle and increase the percentage of normal, healthy hair follicles in the anagen phase.
In Chinese medicine, the growth and development of the hair depends on the health of the Kidney and Liver organ-meridian systems, with Kidney Essence (Jing) influencing the growth of the hair, and Liver Blood providing nourishment to the scalp and hair follicles.
Deficiency of either Jing or Liver Blood may have detrimental effects on the hair, leading to issues such as dryness, brittleness, premature greying, and hair loss including male and female pattern baldness (sometimes called androgenic alopecia) and alopecia (including spot or patchy baldness).
Phytofol® Just the tonic for healthier hair
Fusion® Health hair products are formulated with Phytofol® a proprietary extract of an ancient herb (Fallopia multiflora) traditionally taken to nourish Liver Blood and replenish Kidney Essence (Jing), which improves blood flow to the scalp and revitalises hair follicles. In turn, this can promote healthy hair growth, colour and condition.
Additionally, Phytofol® may reduce excess dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone that can cause hair follicles to shrink over time, resulting in shorter and shorter growth phases, which can lead to hair thinning and baldness in both men and women.
Fusion® Health Hair Tonic is formulated with traditional Chinese herbs and our proprietary herbal extract Phytofol® to promote healthy hair growth, colour and condition, including strength, volume and lustre.
