Hi guys and welcome back to the vlog!
We've just posted our latest in a new series of vlogs where we answer your hair-loss related questions!
Check it out here 👇🏽
And here is the transcript: 👇🏽
Let's go straight into our Q&A from our Instagram followers. I asked our Instagram followers what kind of hair loss related questions do you have and I'll make a video about it and answer
your questions? So these are the questions
that came in a few days ago.
Can blow drying your hair cause hair loss?
So blow drying your hair can actually cause hair loss if the blow-dryer is right next to your scalp and it burns and irritates
the scalp this can cause all sorts of damage to the natural kind of environment of the scalp and can eventually cause hair loss but if you’re not putting the hair dryer directly near the scalp is unlikely to cause hair loss but what can happen is if you're
blow-drying your hair every day or a few times a week it's likely to make the texture of your hair really dry and brittle and when
your hair's dry and it's not really moisturized it's likely to break easily so that's something that you should be aware of it when you're blow-drying your hair.
The main thing to do is to keep your blow dryer on a low or medium
setting I'm just checking that the microphone is on yes it's on
And always remember to use a heat protective spray
or a gel or serum so you can get all of these in your local kind of pharmacies and they will protect your hair up to temperatures of like 150 degrees always make sure that before you blow-dry your
hair always have a heat protection spray on it.
So the next question is a great one, “hey guys I have a very interesting question for you does the use of shampoo cause
hair loss or the absence of use of shampoo I'm asking because I have a friend who has really great hair and he says he does not use shampoo and he never has so the no poo method is becoming increasingly more popular and it relies on using natural more gentle cleaning agents such as apple cider vinegar or just using water to help maintain your scalps healthy sebum and natural oils.
So there are lots of potential benefits of the no poo method.
initially people are likely to find that their scalp and hair goes through a period of adjustment so it becomes greasy but after the first six weeks or so the hair when it wants it adjusts to
the no poo method it's likely to feel healthier it breaks less and so it looks and feels a bit thicker and it's also
better textured and there's a less need for styling products
quick cup of tea so
I actually think that shampooing can actually lead to hair loss if you’re shampooing too frequently and this is for a number of reasons primarily if you're shampooing your hair every day or every other day it's stripping your hair of all the natural oils which are called sebum which actually helps to moisturize
the hair and the scalp and it helps to maintain a healthy environment for hair
When you're stripping away sebum it's actually doing more harm than good your hair gets brittle and it's likely to get dry so that's the first reason secondly if you're shampooing every
every day or every other day you really need to be careful of what is it actually in the ingredients of the
shampoo so I've mentioned it in one of my other videos but check the ingredients make sure that they're it’s a sulfate and paraben free shampoo and it's free of sulfides
And also final, reason if you're shampooing really frequently which a lot of men do be really careful about how you dry your
hair we've got a video coming out with one of our really good friends Scott from home hair he's expert in her care
in the video he mentions that you've got to be really careful about how you towel will dry your hair because if you roughly towel dry your hair it’s actually breaking the hair
follicles allow your hair to dry naturally or just hide your hair gently with the towel so that is a top tip which I hope you find useful and I hope it answers the question.
So the next question is a really common one and we have a blog on this subject on our website www.itreallyworksvitamins.com
check us out and we get probably a hundred or so visits per day just to this blog post so I'm going to put it on
screen because I don't want the YouTube algorithm to kind of like put me down the like pecking order and our video
it's never get seen again so I'm gonna put it on screen and then answer it so…
There is a whole community out there that swear by it I'm gonna put in a website and some links to the reddit community all about this that there's a link in the description so check it out
but there is actually no scientific evidence to prove that it does cause hair loss so now time for a word from our sponsors for me so if you're dealing with unhealthy hair or thinning hair

So the next question is how can I reverse
losing okay, how can I reverse losing my hair?
So I guess how can I reverse hair loss so there are a number of different options out there for you two of the main ways which are approved by the FDA are minoxidil and finasteride so
minoxidil is a topical foam which you apply to your scalp and over time it helps to regrow your hair but there are
A couple of things to bear in mind the first thing is
this is really effective for people who have already noticed a receding hairline or thinning her if for example you're
almost entirely bald or you've lost almost all your hair this isn't going to be the right treatment for you.
Secondly you're going to have to commit to doing this treatment so really commit over months and months and months when you
stop using minoxidil your hair will start to fall out again and it could fall out at a faster rate than previously so that's just something that you can weigh up the pros and cons and see if you would like to use it for the rest of your life.
Secondly there is finasteride on the market and that's also approved by the FDA so this is a tablet that you take regularly to help reverse hair loss and your hair will regrow in our question and answer session on Monday.
Someone asked about the side-effects of finasteride so there are lots of common side effects which include erectile dysfunction and difficulties like maintaining an erection and all those kind of things and they’re actually very common they also could be permanent once you've stopped taking Finasteride so that's something that you need to be aware of.
The permanent side effects are quite rare about 5% of people will experience permanent side effects there are also lots of other
issues that finasteride can cause I’m gonna put a link in the description because in lots of people it's caused depression and especially in people that weren't previously experiencing feelings of depression so it's something to be aware of and it's important to speak to a doctor before trying out either of these treatments as well as finasteride and minoxidil there's also lots of other natural treatments out there that you can try to help reverse hair loss
Something that I really like is Rosemary Oil and I'm gonna put a link in the description and to show the I don't want to it's just the description a study that shows that hair regrow and this was a study on animals, but there are lots of anecdotal evidence out there.
For people that have been massaging the scalp regularly with essential oils you know scalp massage helps to encourage healthy circulation at the scalp and all the vital nutrients are getting towards your scalp and hair is in the best possible position to regrow I really believe in the best nutrition to help hair regrow.
