What Does Wheat Protein Do For Hair Loss In Men
When a group of 30+ aged guys get together and talk, the most commonly discussed topic would be hair loss. A research says that 85 of men will experience hair loss or thinning of hair before they are 50. This article will discuss common reasons for hair fall, break few myths about it and talk about using wheat protein to prevent hair fall effectively.
The hair growth cycle
All hair strands go through something called a growth cycle. There are 4 phases to it.
Anagen is called the growth phase. It lasts anywhere from 2 years to 7 years. The longer this phase is, the stronger will be the hair strands.
Also called as the regression phase, this is the time when the hair follicle shrinks and detaches/removes itself from the dermal papilla (the extension of the dermis layer into the epidermis). It can last for up to 10 days.
Telogen is usually referred to as the resting phase. Any day, around 10-15 percentage of the hair strands are in this phase. When hair gets into this phase, new hairs are already getting ready in the growth phase.
Hair shedding or hair loss is the final stage. When hair is lost, new hairs are replaced in the initial or anaphase stage. For a normal adult, losing up to a 100 hair strands a day is considered normal.
What causes hair loss?
Due to different reasons, the length of the anaphase reduces. If this reduces, the hairs that grow are weaker and get damaged easily. There are a lot of chances for them to break or shed off. Also, when hair strands enter the last phase earlier than the normal cycle, then more hair sheds off than usual resulting in hair fall.
In simple words, if the new hairs that develop are weaker and lesser in number than the hair strands that fall every day, one will start noticing hair fall.
There are so many reasons proven to cause hair fall. Few common ones are:
Conditions like male pattern baldness
Lack of proteins in diet
Over styling using heat products like blow dryers and straightners
Using harsh chemicals on hair
Stress � mental and physical
Using tight helmets that increase hair tension and result in breakage
Treating male hair loss
In the initial stages few life style changes and using good treatment products can prevent hair loss and reverse the condition.
Hot oil massages help nourish the scalp and hair and are advised to be taken a couple of times a month. It is also recommended to use helmets that are the right fit while riding bikes. Including a lot of healthy, nutritious food is also another great option to prevent hair loss.
Using gentle hair cleansers, washing hair regularly, sleeping for a good 7-8 hours a day and keeping one self stress free are all healthy practices to be followed.
Hydrolyzed wheat protein for hair loss
Recently, dermatologists have found out the benefits of using hydrolyzed wheat proteins directly on hair to prevent hair damage. While it has been long determined the benefits of proteins in diet, this technique has proven equally effective for preventing hair damage.
What are hydrolyzed wheat proteins?
Hydrolyzed proteins are those that are processed and broken down into their respective amino acids. By breaking them down, it becomes easier for the system to absorb the goodness of the proteins, thereby increasing its effectiveness.
The protein molecules are derived from wheat and are small enough to be absorbed by each hair strand. They nourish and strengthen the hair strands from within.
How to use hydrolyzed proteins for hair loss?
Since it is difficult to find hydrolyzed proteins directly, it is easier to use them as hair products available readily in the market. One popular hair care product with these broken up proteins is Zycafy-M. Designed specifically for men, this product can be used by all adults to control hair loss and increase the hair growth cycle.
Caffeine for hair
Zycafy M also contains caffeine which is right now very popular to control hair loss. Caffeine is the common ingredient in coffee. Like how coffee can kick start one’s day and energize the brain, caffeine in such hair products are known to activate the hair growth cycle and promote faster growth of hair.
Biotin is one of the B-complex Vitamins that help keep the body, skin, hair and nervous system healthy and active. Biotin nourishes the hair, strengthens it and prevents hair fall and hair damage. Biotin is yet another active ingredient in this shampoo.
Zycafy can be used like any regular shampoo. A small quantity needs to be taken in the palms and applied all over the wet scalp. It has to left on for 2-3 minutes to ensure it is absorbed by the scalp. After this, the scalp and hair can be washed with normal running water and the whole process needs to be repeated again. The shampoo can be used a couple of times a week or every time one shampoos.
The shampoo works on FADDA technology to ensure the product is absorbed better by the scalp. The active ingredients are absorbed within 2-3 minutes of application.
Zycafe-M can replace one’s usual hair care shampoo as it also nourishes, cleans and improves the hair structure along with protecting it and controlling hair loss.
Buying the shampoo online
While Zycafy is available in big drug stores around India, it can be bought online with just a click of a button. Most websites deliver the product for free to the doorsteps all over India and this option can be utilized to the customer’s benefit.
A 250 gram bottle will cost INR 950 and will last for a long time. For people who think this is costly, the cost of hair replacement processes run to lakhs! It is always better to spend less and treat hair fall early.
Testing for allergy
All skin care products need to be tested for allergies before using them. This is because they are a combination of a lot of ingredients and even if one amongst them causes allergies, then that becomes a problem. Using a small quantity of the product on one area of the skin and waiting for 24 hours to check if there are no issues saves a lot of trouble and doctor fee. This is not just for Zycafy. The process needs to be followed for every new product one tries on hair or skin.
