Treatment for Reduced Hair Volume (aka hair thinning)

The best way to treat a gradual reduction in volume is to apply daily anti-androgenic scalp drops, which help to protect your hair follicles from the miniaturizing effects of male hormones. We make drops called Tricho 7. Oral contraceptives, such as Yasmin and Dianette, can also be helpful Ė but you must talk to your doctor about the pros and cons of taking these and whether they are suitable options. It is also important to assess whether an underlying factor is at play. Conditions like Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), which can raise androgen levels, may worsen a genetic reduction in hair volume. Unfortunately, treating reduced volume is not quick. As it happens so slowly, it can take many years to become aware of it Ė and as a consequence, treatment takes time.
Treatment for Telogen Effluvium
To treat excessive daily hair fall you must first find the cause, and then take steps to rectify it. Luckily, a telogen effluvium will right itself once you do this. For instance, if you are losing too much hair due to a poor diet or nutritional deficiency, re-assessing eating habits, as well as taking relevant nutritional supplements will help. We make a nutritional supplement called Tricho Complex, that is formulated for the unique nutritional demands of hair cells. If you have an underlying medical condition, such as hyper or hypo thyroid, taking medications will help. And if you are stressed, you should find a stress-reducing activity that you are comfortable with - such as yoga, mindfulness, meditation Pilates or swimming. Often, more than one thing can be going on Ė and you will have to make changes accordingly. Re-formatting your lifestyle and diet is not always fun, and stress management certainly isnít easy Ė but they will definitely benefit your hair.
With any hair loss, whether you have a gradual reduction in volume, or you are losing too much hair, a holistic approach to treatment is essential. This involves targeting the hair follicle itself, bolstering the strength or strands with products, and giving your hair extra nutritional support. We formulated a 3-step holistic regime, called Trichotherapy, specifically for women with hair loss and/or reduced hair volume. It contains anti-androgenic drops (Tricho 7), a thickening protein spray (Tricho Pro), as well as a multi vitamin and mineral supplement (Tricho Complex).





Sal asks:
Hi I was just wondering what to do to grow long hair like a full man bun? My issue is that my hair is pretty thick and curly and looks like if I grow it more then itíll be an Afro. Iím Indian so I just wanted a solution on how to grow long hair like a man bun?

Hi Sal
The best thing I can suggest is that you use moisturising shampoo and conditioner and always comb through before rinsing. This will help keep the hair soft and weight it down so that it looks longer. Have the back and side of your hair trimmed shorter as this will give you shape and style whilst growing your hair, perhaps use wax that can again add weight but give a little control and secure a low pony tail whilst the hair is growing until long enough for the man bun. Good luck







Ducard asks:
PLZ HELP! Hello, not sure how this works exactly but Iím quite desperate for answers so here we go.
Iím a 21 year old male and I have blonde...straight to wavy hair falling down past my shoulders that happens to be pretty fine... fine as in thin not balding or anything but thin hair. Although thin I have been told that I have a "dense" head of hair as in thin hairs but a lot of them.... now on to the question I always had short hair growing up but a year or two ago I began growing my hair out because I wanted a ponytail. The ponytail style that I seek is Val Kilmer in the 1995 movie Heat.... Please search it for reference. While it looks kinda simple I find it extremely hard to prepare. I get the front all even and situated but when I pull it back into the tail it falls flat and loses all the height and symmetry that it had before I pulled it back. So my question is how do I accomplish this ponytail? What products do you recommend and maybe some advice on the preparation such as blow drying etc. and I do know you donít know exactly what I look like but even if you can answer for me personally what do you think the actor did to accomplish the style? A reply would be very appreciated!!!! Thank you

Hello Ducard
I looked up Val as per your request; so firstly you need to use a shampoo for fine hair. A protein based one or one that says it is specially for fine limp hair, this is the best place to start. Then a trim with a few long layers in your hair as it will allow it to have more movement. I would suggest you rough dry your hair with a hairdryer and direct the nozzle into the root area of your hair also to help create volume. I then suggest using dry shampoo, spray it into the root area of your clean dry hair. The clay base of the product means it acts a bit like starch and gives lift and texture. To create the ponytail, pull all the hair back with your hands, secure with a band then give you head a good shake so the shorter layers fall out of the band. Really good luck
