In almost all cases, 95%, men’s hair loss is hereditary. This is called male androgenetic alopecia, or male pattern baldness. A specific enzyme called alpha 5 reductase transforms testosterone into DHT which will permanently stimulate the sebaceous glands. The extra oil produced creates an acidic environment on the scalp which is inconducive for hair growth. The oil can obstruct the follicle, where the hair grows, and ultimately asphyxiate the bulb.
Male pattern baldness progresses over time and can come in several phases. First, one might notice frontal hair loss presenting with an increased recession. It then may progress to hair loss at the crown of the head until eventually only hair on your sides and back will exist.
There are things that may accelerate this process. Poor diet, stress, medication or the use of certain products that leave residues on the hair can influence your hair loss. You’ll want to take early action as there is no miracle cure, however there are things you can do to help balance your hair cycle and slow down the process.
Images International’s treatment for male pattern baldness is designed to clean, purify and protect. You’ll clean your scalp to rid it of sebum and DHT, you’ll protect and stabilize the hair follicle, lift up seborrheic plugs mixed with DHT and nourish the hair down to the hair follicle itself. How do we do all of those things? With the use of all natural products like sage, gingko and cinnamon. Kapilarine is an ingredient in our products designed to allow toning of the scalp and limiting hair loss. Kapilarine has ingredients which act together to oppose hair loss.
Kigelia and Sage have properties that are hormone-like which help to inhibit 5 alpha-reductase, the enzyme responsible for changing testosterone into DHT. Also, this ingredient helps to stimulate collagen syntheses.
Gingko and cinnamon have anti-inflammatory properties which help control excess oil production. Also, along with sage they activate circulation and are rich in flavonoids.
Cinnamon also has antimicrobial properties which help kill bacteria and limits their inflammatory compounds in sebum.
