Is it time to get intense? New Hairfix Follicle Intense Defence.

If your hair is noticeably thinning it may be time for you to get intense - Hairfix Follicle Intense Defence. This new serum is your first step in turning this distressing condition around.

With super ingredients red clover flower extract, caffeine, hyaluronic and biotin, Follicle Intense Defence is for you if:

  • you can see more exposed scalp and less hair across the top of your scalp (known as diffuse thinning)
  • you’re changing your style to hide the problem
  • you’re relying on cosmetic thickening products to cover up the exposed scalp and give the appearance of more hair
  • you feel you may have left it too late to take action (you haven’t) 

Hairfix Follicle Intense Defence for thin hair and scalp health

Hair loss and thinning in women (female pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia) occurs for a variety of reasons and affects about a third of us at some point (typically around menopause, with as many as two thirds of post-menopausal women experiencing alopecia).

It is most commonly related to:

  • changing hormone levels as we age or during pregnancy
  • thinning of the skin as we mature
  • physical and emotional health
  • a family history of hair loss   

Hair loss and thinning aren't just frustrating, they can also dent confidence and affect emotional wellbeing, so treatment is important and – good news - it’s rarely too late to start.

Hairfix Follicle Intense Defence is formulated by experts to promote the health of your scalp and hair follicles and help new hair grow stronger and thicker, particularly where thinning and loss is advanced.

It is widely understood that good scalp health is the foundation of good, healthy hair and growth – think of it as caring for the skin on your head in the same way as you would the skin on your face.

How does Follicle Intense Defence work?

  1. Red Clover extract mimics the oestrogen that reduces with age
  2. Double strength caffeine protects the hair root against the shrinkage that occurs with raised levels of testosterone
  3. Hyaluronic plumps and moisturises thinning scalp skin so that roots have a more effective anchor
  4. Biotin thickens new growth

Follicle Intense Defence works with your hair growth cycle over time and patience is just as important as continued application - you will begin to see an improvement in the first few weeks or so but continued use over the course of 2-6 months will make a world of difference.

A little goes a long way and this lightweight serum is applied 2-3 times a week (preferably at night) with a measured dropper. It is quickly absorbed to the scalp so you simply need to brush your hair through the next morning. Each 50ml bottle contains up to 180 days’ supply.

Once your hair loss has stabilised you can then switch to other Hairfix Follicle treatments to maintain healthy, normal growth.

More about androgenetic alopecia:

Almost every woman eventually develops some degree of female pattern hair loss, ranging from mild to extreme. It is usually noticed around menopause but can occur at any age from puberty onwards.

Androgenetic alopecia involves the action of the hormones called androgens which are essential for normal male sexual development and have other important functions in both sexes, including the regulation of hair growth. Alopecia is most commonly related to increased androgen activity.

Hair loss from androgenetic alopecia occurs because of a genetically determined shortening of anagen, a hair's growing phase, and a lengthening of the time between the shedding of a hair and the start of a new anagen (growing) phase. This means it takes longer for hair to start growing back after it is shed in the course of the normal growth cycle.

The hair follicle itself also changes, shrinking and producing a shorter, thinner hair shaft — a process called "follicular miniaturization." As a result, shorter, thinner, non-pigmented hairs called "vellus” replace thicker, pigmented, longer-lived "terminal" hairs.

Each hair develops from a follicle — a narrow pocket in the skin — and goes through three phases of growth:

  • Anagen, the active growth phase, lasts two to seven years.
  • Catagen, the transition phase, which lasts about two weeks. During this phase, the hair shaft moves upward toward the skin's surface, and the dermal papilla (the structure that nourishes cells that give rise to hair) begins to separate from the follicle.
  • Telogen, the resting phase, lasts around three months and culminates in the shedding of the hair shaft.
