My choice for March’s product of the month is actually not just one product, but an entire line of products: the Ducray products for hair loss treatment. Both men and women are affected by hair loss. Men of course are more used to the idea, but research shows that 1 in 3 women will be affected by hair loss at some point in their life. This is often related to hormones, stress, deficient diets and age. Ducray offers products for both men and women.
This is hair growth in a nutshell: Hair goes through 3 different cycles known as phases. The anagen, catagen and telogen phases. The anagen phase is the growth phase. A follicle typically stays in the anagen phase for 3-5 years, growing approximately a half inch per month. The catagen phase is next and it is a very short transitional phase, lasting only about 10 days. The third and final phase is the telogen phase where the hair is released and falls out of the follicle. Then the follicle rests for about 3 months before going back to the anagen phase. The good news is all of our hair follicles work independently of each other and go through the phases at different times.
Ducray hair care products can help if you experience hair loss of any kind. The Ducray Hair Renewal System is good for either men or women who have experienced sudden hair loss. This kit helps trick the hair into going back into the anagen phase. You would use this kit only once and then move to the Healthy Hair System, if needed. In general, if gradual and chronic thinning of your hair is the problem, the Healthy Hair System is what you need from the start. You can stay on this kit indefinitely. It works to revitalize and nourish the hair by feeding the hair bulb. If someone is already utilizing minoxidil, they can still use the Healthy Hair System and will love they way the hair is revitalized. Both of these kits contain shampoo, hair lotion (varies by kit) and dietary supplements. These all work together to help restore that beautiful head of hair you once had.
