How to reverse hair loss

Tucked away in a low-key corner of Cap Hairdressing in Puerto Andratx, a miracle happens. Monique, a Cancer survivor whose chemotherapy treatments have wreaked havoc on her body and hair, looks at a screen that’s attached to a camera aimed at her scalp. She has a big smile on her face.

There are delighted murmurs between her and her hairstylist, Silke Hulser. The treatment works, Monica’s hair is grow again. But that’s no miracle, it’s a scientific breakthrough that was brought to the island through a German company called Hairdreams.

Many people suffer from hair loss: one in two men and more and more women are affected. The main reason is genetically predisposed hair loss, but other influencing factors that can lead to hair loss are stress, illness and malnutrition. In all these cases, the hormone DHT (Dihydrotestosteron), which is produced by our body, causes the active roots to “sleep”, thereby decreasing the production of new strands of hair.

The result? Thinning hair and increased visibility of the scalp. Hair loss, especially in women, can be devastating. Studies on the psychosocial impact of hair loss have shown that self-esteem, body image and self-confidence be negatively impacted. Known complications include depression, low self-esteem, altered self-image, and less frequent and less enjoyable social engagement.

Inspect the scalp

It’s perfectly understandable that a person is looking for treatments to help their hair grow, but also feel embarrassed to ask. Silke is an expert in this field and has helped many people over 20 years she has been in the hair extensions and hairpiece industry, but now she can offer real hope to people who want to get their own hair back.

The solution came in the form of a new product from Hairdreams called Stop & Grow. Developed in collaboration with leading scientists, dermatologists and universities, and scientifically proven to work, the patent-pending formula is based on a novel PHT complex and a two-step system.

The first phase is the application of a concentrate of phytohormones and tetra-G-collagen. This inhibits the hormone DHT which inhibits hair loss and stimulates the activity of cellular functions which are responsible for hair growth. Waking up “sleeping” hair roots to help produce new, healthy hair. At the same time, the roots of the hair are further strengthened and anchored in the scalp.

Phase two is mixed just before application for maximum effect and contains activating taurine, which enhances the effect of phase one and supercharged additional impulses to stimulate growth.

Application of the serum

The University of Luebeck Dermatology Clinic conducted a research study on the effect of the active ingredient Stop & Grow PHT on the hairline of patients with hair loss. During the study, they found an average a 23% increase in new active hair producing hair roots. In the study, the researchers further tested the effect of the PHT complex against the best-selling active ingredient currently on the market.

The results were very impressive as scientists found dormant root activation to be seven times better with Hairdreams’ PHT complex than their closest competitor.

For several years, the effect of Hairdreams Stop & Grow has been tested in a salon environment during a long-term application study. There, they carefully monitored all hair growth changes in fine detail using special microscopic imaging as well as photos of the participants. In addition, participants were regularly asked about their experience.

Almost all of the participants reported that only after a few weeks their extensive hair loss was reduced or stopped altogether. After 3-4 months, 96% of participants confirmed that their hair density had increased: felt noticeably more full, which has earned them a “perfect A +” score for Stop & Grow therapy. The results translated into an increase in visible hair growth of 14,000 new strands of hair during a 90-day growth phase for the average person with hair loss.

The complete system, in the salon and at home

However, you cannot get this product over the counter, you have to go to an official Hairdreams Stop & Grow salon. The therapy begins with a treatment applied in the salon and then continues at home. At the start of each treatment, a trained Hairdreams expert, in this case it would be Silke hulser of Cap Hair, performs an in-depth analysis of their clients’ hair and scalp.

Therapy is then decided on the basis of this analysis. Typically, this is a combination of intensive salon and home treatments. Progress is carefully monitored and documented using the magnifying camera allowing the client to see how their hair grows and how thick it is. Of course, the results depend on how accurately you also follow the house party treatment, but with diligent application, you can also expect that same magical moment when you see fresh hair starting to grow.
