Help! My hair’s getting thinner and beating a retreat and I’m not happy.

Help! My hair’s getting thinner and beating a retreat and I’m not happy.

The onward march of time has many upsides but in the hair department we've found that you’re lucky if you continue to love those locks every bit as much as you always have. If you’re still in love with your crowning glory, no need to read on... If, on the other hand, you’re noticing changes you don’t like the look or feel of, let’s talk.

It may be gradual… the movement of your hairline in a northerly direction, the widening of your parting, the thinner feel of your strands, more hair in the plughole after washing. It may also be that you suddenly notice that what you once took for granted has gone without warning – shine, volume, the ability to get your hair to behave as it once did.

At best it’s irritating and at worst it’s a blow to a girl’s confidence. So, what’s it all about and what can be done?

In a nutshell, it’s about age, hormones, genes and health. DermNet New Zealand states that around 40% of women by age 50 see a reduced amount of hair follicles and begin to notice:

Receding hairline and a widening parting where individual hairs are shrinking and fading away. This is often age-related but can be caused by ‘traction alopecia’ as a result of tying hair up or backcombing.

Shedding hair – this is usually most noticeable when brushing and styling or you may see excess hair in the bath, shower or sink when shampooing.

Greying hair that looks sparser - greyness exacerbates the problem of thinning hair as the lack of hair colour blends with the paleness of the scalp, making hair appear sparse.

The good news is that it’s by no means all doom and gloom. Whilst there is no cure per se, it is possible to slow or stop loss and thinning and learn to love your hair again. And Hairfix can help.

Hairfix’s follicle treatment range of caffeine, hyaluronic and keratin based products is specifically formulated to address common forms of age- and hormone-related hair loss in women by stimulating the scalp, feeding up the follicles (roots) and thickening hair.

Hairfix products really do work, which is why over 500,000 people worldwide have chosen them since 2014. So, what's the secret?

First of all, the Hairfix difference lies in its slow release formula. This allows you to infuse higher levels of caffeine and hyaluronic to your scalp than competitive products without causing irritation. Slow release means that Hairfix works its magic on your scalp over a 72-hour period, minimising inconvenience and frequency of use.

Secondly, we’re honest. We don’t claim to offer a quick fix and you should beware not to be fooled by claims you see to the contrary. You will need to be persistent and consistent in your use of follicle treatments – every third day for 3-6 months to see results.

Thirdly, Hairfix is great value. Less truly is more and you only need use a small amount, 2-3 times a week, meaning that Hairfix goes a long way; 150ml Follicle + or Follicle Max is, for example, sufficient for up to 360 days and our complete treatment sets offer brilliant savings.

Choosing the right Hairfix for your needs:

For advanced scalp exposure at the hairline, parting or crown - Follicle Max Advance

With double strength caffeine, biotin, our proprietary blend of vegetable keratin and antioxidant Nucleo Trico-Hyal, Follicle Max Advance 'spot treats' the areas of the scalp where hair is receding fast. Normally there are tiny hairs growing at the margins here; with the right support these hairs can be coaxed back to give you fuller, younger looking hair cover.

For hair that is generally growing thinner and greyer - Follicle + Anti-Age Gel

Follicle + Anti-Age, developed by a leading independent Trichologist, is a total scalp treatment that gently ‘feeds up’ the roots to stimulate the development of healthier, thicker hair. Within 60 days your hair should be noticeably thicker and a little less grey. It is suitable for all hair types and especially for women noticing more scalp, thinner, greying hair, loss in the brush and breakage

For hair that is fine, thin or flat, Hairfix Total Volume Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner

Containing Kerestore™ for targeted repair, Hairfix Total Volume & Conditioner will restore your hair’s health, volume and shine, increasing thickness by up to 20% after just five applications. Your strands will feel naturally fuller, smoother and shinier without feeling weighed down, and your scalp will feel healthier.

For volumising, styling and protecting fine, fragile and thinning hair – Follicle Max Volume Lifting Mist

Follicle Max Volume is a lightweight styling mist for use on wet or dry hair that deposits keratin onto the hair to naturally thicken and lift, add gloss and protect against breakage. Its caffeine ingredient wicks through the hair shaft to secure the hair root, and Follicle Max Volume also helps to protect your hair against heat damage.

Please note:

1. If you are suffering from hair loss – mild or extreme – we advise you to check the cause (see our FAQs page) in order to assess whether our Follicle range is appropriate for you. Please also feel free to Contact Us for advice.

2. If you experience sudden hair loss, please consult your doctor as soon as possible. You can also Contact Us if you need help.

3. Male androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness) causes irreversible thinning, often progressing to partial or complete baldness. Hairfix Follicle products may assist in making hair feel and look thicker but will not ultimately prevent this condition.
