What many people don't know is that it is completely normal to lose between 50 and 130 hairs every day. This may seem like a lot, but it actually isn't. Especially around the autumn period, your beautiful hair can be thinned out a bit.
Your scalp is covered with a hundred thousand hair follicles and every hair on your head grows from this hair follicle. It goes through a cycle of hair growth to hair loss. Such a cycle takes quite a long time because it takes about 3 to 5 years for one hair to go through this cycle. Because all the hair on your head goes through a cycle, which is actually just a natural body process, your hair will not necessarily become less. Have you noticed that you are suddenly experiencing much more hair loss? Then it is important to find out the cause of this as quickly as possible because this can have various causes. And of course you also want to know as soon as possible what is causing the disruption to your hair growth cycle so that you can provide a good plan of action.
Healthy hair growth
A beautiful, healthy and shiny head of hair is really a beauty ideal in many cultures and let's be honest... who doesn't want a beautiful, full head of healthy hair? Of course, it is not only important that your hair looks beautiful on the outside, but it must also be healthy on the inside.
There are different types of hair loss, but there are also complaints that have nothing to do with hair loss. For example, some people do not suffer from hair loss at all, but only suffer from brittle hair or split ends. What causes these complaints and what actually causes hair loss? Can you combat hair loss or can you prevent hair loss? At VeganBoost we know exactly what you need for healthy hair growth and we are happy to help you with this common problem.
Recognizing healthy and unhealthy hair
The first step to healthy hair is a healthy scalp. If you have an unhealthy scalp, this can cause hair loss. Therefore, always make sure that your scalp is healthy at all times. You can easily check this yourself. Stand in front of the mirror and inspect your scalp. Is it too dry? Then this is not good because when your scalp is dry, your skin can feel tense and flakes can also form, which is very bad for the hair follicles on your head. Is your hair too greasy? Then unfortunately this is not good because if you suffer from excessive sebum production, this can cause greasy hair, which is also not good for the hair follicles on your head. The trick is to ensure a scalp that is not too dry, but not too oily.
Watch for hair loss
As you have read before, it is completely normal to lose 50 to 130 hairs every day. These hairs are part of the growth cycle of your hair and you do not have to worry about this, because new hairs will always take their place. Do you feel or see that you are losing a lot more hair? Then this can be very annoying and it is important to do something about it quickly.
How do you know if you are losing too much hair? You can also easily check this. When you brush your hair, hairs always remain in your brush. Do you see a lot more hair than normal? Then this is unfortunately an indication that you are suffering from hair loss. You may also sometimes notice after showering that there are many more hairs in the shower drain.
Texture of your hair
You can also use your hairbrush to check the condition of your hair. You can easily examine the hairs left behind. Look at the thickness and structure of your hair. Do some hairs have a different structure? Are they suddenly extremely fine, do they have an irregular structure or do you suffer from split ends? Then unfortunately your hair is not in good condition.
By the way, never use plastic brushes, because they are known to damage your hair and you obviously don't want this.
Itching and inflammation
Do you suffer from an itchy scalp? Then you may suffer from inflammation. This can be caused by certain medications or hair products. Do you suspect that you have inflamed hair follicles? Have your scalp checked by someone close to you as soon as possible to find out whether you suffer from inflammation around the hair roots.
What affects your hair?
There are several things that can affect the health of your hair. For example, personal hygiene and a healthy diet are very important. A healthy lifestyle with healthy food can be extremely good for the quality of your hair. Your hair care products also have a great influence on the health of your hair. Some hair products are very good and will stimulate hair growth, but using the wrong products can not only damage your hair, but also irritate your scalp.
Different types of hair loss
We are often asked: what to do about hair loss? We would like to answer this question with love, but it is important to first look at the type of hair loss. There is not one specific type of hair loss, but there are many different types of hair loss. That is why we always say that it is important to first determine the cause of your hair loss so that you know what type of hair loss you are dealing with. After this, you can take the right steps to prevent hair loss.
AGA - hereditary hair loss
One of the most common types of hair loss is Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA). Also called hereditary hair loss. Unfortunately, it is often thought that only men have to deal with this, because AGA is known for the inlets and bald spot on the crown. However, this can also affect women. Women with AGA will soon notice that their separation begins to thin out. What causes this are male hormones and we will explain more about this later in this article.
AA - Alopecia Areata
Do you suddenly suffer from several round, bald spots on your scalp? Do you come across bald spots the size of a coin? Then we speak of Alopecia Areata (AA). Very occasionally, these bald spots also appear on other parts of the body. Scientists aren't sure yet, but it is thought that these spots are caused by an autoimmune disease.
Telogen Effluvium is temporary hair loss. Your hair will fall out, but the hair follicles will recover after this period, causing your hair to grow back. The cause of temporary hair loss often has to do with stress, certain medications or hormones. Many people notice that they notice visibly thinning hair during periods of stress. However, you don't have to worry about this. As we explained earlier, everything will recover and new hair growth will occur naturally.
Did you know that there are different hairstyles that cause hair loss? One of the most common causes of hair loss in women is Traction Alopecia. This is caused, for example, by frequently wearing very tight ponytails.
Do you often dye, straighten or perm your hair? Then you can damage not only your hair, but also your scalp. This can even result in scars that prevent your hair from growing! Therefore, always make sure that when you have one of these things done, you also take extra good care of your hair so that you do not lose hair in the future.
These treatments are completely safe provided they are performed correctly.
AGA, male pattern baldness occurs not only in men, but also in women. The cause of this type of hair loss has to do with the male hormone Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It is estimated that approximately 70% of men in the Netherlands will experience this type of hair loss at some point in their lives. For some gentlemen, this can even start during puberty. Of course, heredity also plays an important role in this. In women, this type of hair loss usually begins around menopause, but unfortunately for some it can begin before menopause. Here too, heredity often plays a major role.
Prevent hair loss
It is important to take good care of your hair by using the right hair products, but your hair also needs some care from the inside. Healthy nutrition and the right foods play an important role in this.
Also, always try to use the best shampoos and hair products that stimulate hair growth without damaging your hair or scalp. Also never use shampoos with sulphates, parabens or perfumes.

VeganBoost hair loss conditioner
You can find many brands that market special shampoos to combat hair loss, but what they often forget is that a conditioner is also needed to nourish your hair. This causes you to work with mainstream brands of conditioners, which means that the hair loss shampoo cannot do its job properly. That is why we at VeganBoost have chosen to also launch a conditioner. This way you prevent hair loss, but you also take care of your hair properly.
A positive influence and good blood circulation are important when you want to prevent hair loss and that is why our conditioner contains rosemary oil and chamomile. The conditioner also contains lavender oil, peppermint oil and tea tree oil. The necessary vitamins that you can find in the conditioner include Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin B5 and even Omega 6.

For the best results, it is therefore best to use our special shampoo and conditioner in combination with our well-known VeganBoost Hair Vitamins. These contain all the important vitamins and substances for making and keeping your hair healthy. The VeganBoost Hair Vitamins do not contain hormones and therefore do not affect facial or body hair.
