Asians are known for their thick manes of raven hair, hair loss and thinning hair affects. On a normal basis, we lose around 30-60 strands of hair, but with age, the number can double or triple. Hair loss is inevitable but there are many ways to slow the process down.
Just like you wash your face on a daily basis at least twice a day, the first step is to wash your hair twice every time – lather, rinse, repeat. The first time removes the dirt, grime and grease and the second time cleanses the scalp which, when done properly, can remove a week’s worth of product, residue, and pollution.
Our hair goes through 3 stages: The anagen phase, it grows within the bulb and produces keratin, the catagen phase when hair cells are resting, and onto the telogene phase when the hair falls out.
