Hair Loss is often misdiagnosed and misunderstood purely because the identification process is too complicated to understand.  We have simplified hair loss to 3 causes; Genetic, Medication and Medical Conditions.  These 3 causes can be clearly identified on the scalp by the pattern of thinning on the scalp.. We have further simplified understanding the contributing factors into 3 categories; Diet, Sweat and Stress.  These simplifications have assisted us in gaining a succinct diagnosis of the type of hair loss and what can realistically be achieved through a prescribed treatment and professional home care.  We are driven to delivering manageable expectations, reliable results and realistic goals, and we achieve this through identifying the problem, addressing the problem and replenishing optimal health and vitality to the hair.

Genetic Hair Loss
Thinning of the temporal, crown and middle path
The reason for a genetic disposition to hair loss (male pattern or female pattern baldness) stems from a hormone called Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and Prostaglandin D2 (PGd2) which is exacerbated by a imbalanced diet which influences toxicity levels adding to a poor environment for hair to thrive. DHT and PGd2 both influence the normal growth cycle of hair resulting in premature shrinking of the hair follicle leading to apoptosis. DHT and PGd2 bind to the receptor sites in the hair follicle stopping the natural flow of hair growth. This type of hair loss is only seen on the top part of the scalp for men and women. The reason for the difference in the pattern of loss is due to the way in which a man and women’s sweats, sweat is a carrying agent for DHT, men sweat in pockets on the scalp and a women sweats from the middle parting outwards thus these hair follicles are exposed to more irregularly cycles of growth.

Medication / Stress (Telogen Effluvium)
Overall thinning of the hair across the scalp.
Many commonly prescribed prescription drugs can cause temporary hair loss and potentially trigger the onset of male and female pattern baldness. Depending on the sensitivity of a person’s physiology will depict whether or not a person will be affected by these prescribed prescription drugs. These drugs force your hair into a premature Telogen / Exogen (resting/falling out cycle) resulting in up to 50% of a person’s hair falling out within a short period of time. These prescribed drugs normally only showcase hair loss after 1-2 years of continual use. Younger girls in particular notice hair loss through certain contraceptives that disrupt the normal growing cycles of hair growth.

Medical Conditions
Patches or lines of hair loss on the scalp
A medical condition that influences your hair is defined as anything that changes the normal well being of a person’s physiology eg. Thyroid abnormalities, auto immune disease, pregnancies, stress, poor diets leading to acidosis, high or low blood pressure, diabetes, blunt trauma to a hair follicle ect. This means resources are taken away from hair building and set towards defence from germs, microbes, bacteria etc. Some people have argued that human head hair serves the purpose of conspicuous consumption much like a peacocks tail which serves no purpose but vanity but illustrates a gauge of health. So in other words if a person losses their hair due to a medical condition then its your physiology’s way of sounding an alarm notifying of a change in the normal events of our constitution and potentially leading to hair loss.

The 3 Major Contributing Factors to Hair Loss and Thinning Hair


A lot of foods that are induced with hormones are consumed and contribute to an abundance of free testosterone leading to the formation of increased DHT thus brining about the predisposition to hair loss prematurely. Certain foods also form acidity in the blood and causes cells and tissues to become more acidic, diseases such as microbes and bacteria thrive in this environment. The body naturally balances acidity by talking nutrients from less important parts of our body. The best way to balance the acidity in an attempt to preserve our health is to use nitrogen and calcium from sources within our physiology. One of the best sources of nitrogen is in protein, found in hair called keratin. This amino acid forms about 90% of the hair molecule.

The result in most people is a gradual slowing down of the rate that their hair grows, a reduction in colour and density, strength and thickness. Our bodies don’t want to devote precious alkaline resources to our hair when there are other places they’re needed more importantly, like keeping disease away. People are genetically predisposed to balance acidity in different ways. Some people store fat, some try to excrete acidic toxins through their skin causing acne, whilst others buffer acidity using proteins from our hair follicles, bones and teeth (leading to critical calcium deficiency) etc. Your body is literally eating your own hair to stay healthy and fend off disease.


Sweating is an integral part of our physiology but acts as a carrying agent for DHT through sebum thus the more we sweat the more the carrier of sweat influences the way our hair grows. Sweat glands also differ on the scalp in men and women thus indicating a difference in the genetic predisposition to Male pattern baldness and Female pattern baldness.


Stress is frequently referenced in hair loss and is a contributing factor to an increase in androgens thus exacerbating a genetic disposition to hair loss through increasing the levels of DHT. Increased levels of stress can lead to an increase of a hormone called Cortisol which slows cell activity and creates poor blood circulation to the hair follicle leading to premature falling.
