About Qi Hair Care
Qi is the central underlying principle in traditional Chinese medicine
There are a number of contributing factors towards hair loss. One or more of these could be the cause of your hair loss. The battle we have is that it is so hard for any of us to determine exactly which of these contributing factors is causing our hair loss. The first and most obvious contributing factor is genetics. Many people have a predisposition towards hair loss from either parent or grandparent. We all know we cannot choose our parents, so there is not much w cam do about this. However, there are many other factors causing hair loss and we can do something about these.
One of the most common causes is a clogged follicle. Every hair follicle has attached to it a sebaceous gland that secretes a waxy, oily sebum. Some people have an overactive sebaceous gland and the oily sebum accumulates and clogs the hair follicle The hair simply cannot grow. By simply dissolving this sebum, the hair can automatically come out and in these people the results are dramatic. The next contributing factor is a lack of blood supply to the hair follicle. Sometimes when the scalp is too tight and thin, the blood flow to the hair follicle is cut off or restricted and the hair can simply not grow properly. By increasing the circulation with ingredients that can stimulate action on the scalp and use the right scalp massage techniques, you can be amazed at the results you will see to your hair.
A very common known cause of hair loss is the build of DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) in the hair follicle. DHT comes from testosterone which is converted to DHT by the enzyme 5-AR (Alpha Reductase). DHT causes the hair follicles to shrink. So the goal, therefore, is to try and reduce this enzyme so the conversion does not take place. There are drugs that can help, however, we have included in our formulations ingredients that can help reduce this naturally.
Other contributing factors could include things like stress, poor scalp hygiene, crash diets low in protein, birth control medications, menopause and certain kinds of medications. We have taken all these contributing facts into consideration and incorporated ingredients to give you the opportunity to overcome them all.
To understand your hair loss situation, it is important to know a little about the life cycle of hair. Hair grows in cycles and phases. The first growing stage is called the Anagen Phase, where the hair grows, usually from 2 to 6 years. Then it goes through a resting phase, then a period of up to 6 months where it enters the falling out stage. At any given time, about 10 to 15% of the hairs on your scalp are in the falling out stage. That is why it is normal to lose hair every day. It is when we notice a higher amount of hair loss, that the % of hairs in the falling out stage dramatically increase…then something needs to be done. Our formulations work fantastically at these times.
Easy to use and understand. The Scalp Formula is the key to the program. This is the most important step. You apply the Scalp Formula preferably at night before retiring to bed. You take a small amount (usually about 5m1), depending on the extent of the thinning hair and apply this to the scalp. You can use the nozzle on the cap and apply it directly to the scalp or massage it in between the fingers and rub in. It is important to then follow with the proper scalp massage technique. Do not rub the scalp but keep your finger pads in one spot and move the scalp around. Like kneading some dough. You should experience a tingling sensation, a cooling of the scalp. This only lasts a few seconds and goes away. After about 20 seconds it dries and the active ingredients remain on the scalp to do its work. The reason why we feel the best results are at night is that the body is at rest and you have at least 6 to 8 hours for proper absorption. The other good time to use is in the morning after you wash your hair with the Shampoo and Conditioner and towel dry. Apply the scalp formula, the dry hair as usual.
All our formulas contain a blend of 17 herbal botanical extracts. The aqueous-infusion was a blend of Aspalathus Linearis (African Rooibos) Leaf Extract*, Butyrosperumum Park11 (African Shea Butter) Fruit Nut Extract, Pygeum (Prunus Africanum) Bark Extract, Capsicum Frutescens (African Cayenne) Fruit Extract, Quillaja (African Saponaria Soap) Bark Extract, Serenoa Serrulata (Saw Palmetto) Fruit Extract, Matricaria Recutita (Chamomille) Flower Extract*, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract*, Camellia Oleifera (Green Tea) Leaf Extract*, Ginko Biloba (Ginko) Leaf Extract*, Rosemarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract*, Equisetum Hiremale (Horsetail) Plant Extract*, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Root Extract*, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract* Symphytum Officinalis (Comfrey) Root Extract*, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract*. We am happy to say that we have many of these now in Certified Organic. (*).
Then use the Shampoo & Conditioner whenever you wash your hair. Try not to use any other shampoo or conditioner as much as you can help it. Our shampoo and conditioner are designed to work synergistically with the scalp formula. The shampoo helps get rid of any build up, cleans the hair follicle and gets it ready for the nurturing effects of the Scalp Formula. The Conditioner helps to strengthen the hair even more as well adding moisture and shine.
We also believe in building the hair from the inside. That is why we encourage people to take a careful look at their diet and how much protein and vitamins are being consumed. We have created a hair supplement with the 5 best herbs known to help encourage a healthy full head of hair including Silica, Nettle, Kelp, He Shou Wu, and Saw Palmetto.
Besides hair loss & thinning hair, the next 2 big scalp concerns are Dandruff/ Dry Scalp as well as Psoriasis/Itchy Scalp. Our shampoo & conditioner for Dandruff is enriched with Zinc Pyrithione to get rid of Dandruff after just one or two applications. About 20% of people suffer from Psoriasis. They usually have been diagnosed by a doctor and have tried all the prescription creams. They are always happy to see that we have a natural alternative. Our special shampoo & conditioner has Tea Tree Oil to help reduce the symptoms of Psoriasis and Itchy Scalp.
Contributing Factors Include
These formulas are excellent for men as well as women. Hair follicles are hair follicles…and they exist in both men and women. Men have what is known as male pattern baldness, whereas women have what is known as ‘women pattern baldness”. With me, there is that typical horseshoe shape, with women it is more diffuse hair loss, a general thinning of the hair all over the scalp. With today’s perming and brushing, women can hide their hair loss more.
We also love the results Panthenol which is Vitamin B5 gives the hair. It helps thicken the hair shaft and add incredible strength to hair. Also, Wheat Protein is so effective in helping repair any kind of hair damage. People who have hair loss are found to be deficient in B complex and that is why we have incorporated things like Biotin and Inositol.
NONE OF THE BAD STUFF. Our research team has made a huge effort to avoid and never use ingredients that are harmful, toxic or known to cause allergies and cause all kinds of ailments. In these formulations, you get the best of the best. We stay away from harsh chemicals like Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, Phthalates, artificial colouring, parabens, formaldehyde, sodium chloride (salt.)
Everybody gets results with our formulas. Some are more dramatic than others. Results, of course, all depend on a number of factors. The best results we have seen in people who started using the program within 2 to 5 years of hair loss. So the sooner you begin using the program, the sooner you will see results.
