The following is a sponsored post in partnership with Capillus. All opinions are 100% my own.
OMG…Truth be told, I’m going through “the change” right now, and I thought moodiness, insomnia and hot flashes were bad! Now my hair is thinning out and I’m not cool with that at all! I used to have a beautiful head of hair, where did it all go? Down the drain, most likely or stuck in my hairbrush. Thankfully, there’s Capillus.
Capillus is known for its cap—it’s like a ball cap with lights inside. Have you seen it? The company is also known for providing doctors and hair loss sufferers with the best medical and cosmetic products for treating hair loss. As such, they offer a variety of product lines to serve those needs.Capillus products actually include lasers for hair regrowth, clinical hair therapy products, and also keratin hair fibers.
At Capillus®, they offer several options for treating hair loss at home. And the process is easy as can be. From topical foams to shampoos and personal LLLT devices, they have a four-range system of doctor-recommended hair care products designed to create stronger, healthier, and fuller hair.
Capillus introduced the line of Cap+ Clinical Hair Therapy Products to complement the laser products for hair regrowth. It seems like their clinical hair therapy products use the best ingredients that together gently cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize hair for overall scalp health. They aim to create an environment for healthy hair to flourish fuller and thicker. Formulated to address some known causes of hair loss, Capillus products are safe for color and chemically treated hair. A tingling blend of menthol and peppermint oil leaves scalp feeling totally refreshed. You can use this in conjunction with the Capillus low-level light therapy device if you prefer to.
Bundle Includes: shampoo, conditioner, activator and revitalizer, $149.95, if purchased separately.
I think this is a great scalp exfoliator that removes build up from hair products. It has a low pH formula without the effects of harsh sulfates that strip away natural oils.
This is hydrating and botanically-infused that makes hair soft and retain moisture. This restorative, lightweight formula rinses without leaving behind residue that can drag your hair down.
This is specially made to deal with the known causes of hair loss. It’s a follicle stimulant that enriches your scalp as it also acts as a leave-in treatment which is pretty cool.
This is a state-of-the art serum that deeply cleanses and exfoliates your scalp. It dissolves excess sebum, sweat and pollutants that clog hair follicles and strangle hair growth.
Understanding Hair Loss in Women
Women face a special type of hair loss, so it’s no wonder a unique solution is needed. Unlike male pattern baldness, female hair loss occurs in a more diffuse manner that is sometimes harder to detect. With an estimated 20-30 million women affected by hair loss in the United States alone, doctors are increasingly developing technologies and treatment protocols exclusively designed to help women overcome the personal, social, and professional setbacks caused by this traumatic condition.
Hair shedding is normal. According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, it is normal to lose anywhere from 50 to 100 strands of hair per day. Any more than that and one might be experiencing hair loss.
Hair loss in women can begin at any age, even in teenage years. It may begin slowly and can thin gradually over the scalp at an unnoticeable rate. At times it may be temporary due to a hormonal changes or stress, but other times it could be more permanent, as in cases of hereditary baldness.
In order to effectively restore your hair, it is vital to first understand why hair loss is occurring. Causes of hair loss in women range from genetics to stress, thyroid problems, hormonal changes, traction alopecia, and chemical processing.
Treatment options for Women’s Hair Loss
Traditionally, women have had few viable options to reverse the signs of hair loss. The most popular include the following:
- Minoxidil (Rogaine®) is a topical solution that has been prescribed for application twice a day. This is not a very favorable option for many because it only aims to treat the part, and is a messy application process, akin to dying hair at the roots.
- Finasteride (generic name for Propecia®), which is a treatment option for men, is not approved for use by women as it has been shown to cause birth defects in children.
- Hair transplant surgery is a more expensive but often permanent treatment for female hair loss. If the idea of surgery makes you feel uneasy, you are not alone. Many women hesitate to engage in hair transplant surgery due to the nature of the procedure and the post operative healing process it entails.
- Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a sound science that has long been used in various medical fields. Today, devices like theCapillus272®are available to help treat hair loss.
As for me, so far so good. I’ve been using their four-step Capillus shampoo/hair care collection for a about three weeks now and I can tell you my hair feels soft and is very manageable. Best of all, it is NOT falling out. I used to have a hot mess to clean with my hair all over the place, but not anymore! Interestingly enough, I don’t have to wash my hair as often and it still looks fresh! I anticipate it getting thicker and fuller in the weeks to come. If for some reason it doesn’tprove results, I will address this in a future post. I’m going to keep on testing this product line for several more weeks and see what happens.
