Hair loss. It can be a daunting journey, and it's a universal concern that impacts millions of people around the globe, causing not just a change in appearance but also emotional distress and a hit to self-esteem. If you or someone you know are currently going through it, we want to let you know that you're not alone in this battle! Here's the good news - understanding the causes and symptoms of hair loss can set you on the right path to managing it effectively. And we understand that with so many hair care products on the market claiming to combat hair thinning, finding a solution that genuinely works can be overwhelming. A shampoo for thinning hair in your routine may be just what you need and paired with supporting treatments, it can be a game changer. That's why in this blog, we're going to demystify hair loss and introduce a drug-free solution that can be used in this battle: ColorProof's Biorepair Thickening Collection.
Understanding the Hair Loss Challenge
Before we dive into the solutions, let's take a moment to understand the trials of hair loss. Hair loss is more than just a cosmetic issue. It often carries an emotional weight, leading to feelings of embarrassment and a dip in confidence. It can even affect social interactions and personal relationships.
The Main Culprits Behind Hair Loss
In an enlightening chat with Beauty Launchpad, hair guru and Colorproof Global Vice President of Education Tim Abney unravels the main culprits behind hair loss. He explains that typically, hair loss is a result of heredity, a decrease in the hormone testosterone, stress, or the natural aging process. However, it can also be triggered by certain medications or deficiencies in essential nutrients like riboflavin, biotin, folate and Vitamin B12. "Hair loss is a unique journey for everyone," Abney emphasizes. "The key is to collaborate with your physician to identify the probable cause. This helps you find a treatment that sets you up for success in your hair loss journey."
Spotting the Early Signs of Hair Loss
Abney shares some early warning signs of hair loss that you should keep an eye out for. These include gradual thinning of hair, a growing bald spot, a receding hairline, a part line that seems to be widening and a ponytail that's losing its thickness. "Being proactive about these signs can help you start a hair loss treatment at the right time," advises Abney. "This way, you can potentially slow down hair loss or even halt it altogether."
Fighting Hair Loss: An Inside and Out Approach
When it comes to tackling hair loss, Abney recommends an inside/outside strategy. "Consider taking supplements like Biotin, Selenium, Zinc, Saw Palmetto and Ginseng, approved by your doctor, to promote hair growth from within," he suggests. He also underlines the importance of a self-care scalp routine. This includes weekly scalp exfoliation and applying nourishing oils like coconut oil, olive oil, or other essential oils regularly. In some cases, making changes to your overall health will help reduce hair loss, especially when combined with products designed to promote hair growth and volume.
Meet ColorProof's Biorepair Thickening Collection
For external care, Abney is all praises for our Biorepair Thickening Collection. This vegan, drug-free therapy system for thinning hair includes the Biorepair Thicken Shampoo, Bioprepair Thicken Conditioner, Biorepair Thicken Scalp Serum and Biopreair Thicken Blow Dry Spray.
"These products work in harmony to address the root cause of the problem," Abney explains. "They nourish and treat the hair and scalp, creating the perfect environment for healthy, fuller-looking hair."
The collection is powered by a trademarked Phyto-CP Complex filled with active ingredients like biotin, copper peptides, pea sprout, tea tree and grape stem cells. "These ingredients are the real heroes! They work tirelessly to stimulate, energize, nourish and restore scalp health, creating the perfect playground for your hair to thrive," Abney enthuses. "This system is truly amazing. It works wonders!!!"
Biorepair Thicken Shampoo is formulated with alpha hydroxy acid, which stimulates and exfoliates the scalp, removing dead skin cells, product build-up and oils that may impede new growth. Paired with a scalp brush it works wonders. Using a scalp brush can stimulate the scalp and boost microcirculation, creating the optimum foundation for hair to thrive.
After you’ve shampooed and conditioned your hair, we also recommend further strengthening hair with our Biorepair Thicken Scalp Serum. This serum is perfect for daily use and it balances and restores scalp and follicle health, setting the stage for thicker, fuller-looking hair. To use the serum, just apply a few drops to your fingertips and massage into your scalp, targeting thinning areas. This serum can be applied up to twice daily on damp or dry hair and works best in conjunction with our Biorepair® Thicken Shampoo and Biorepair® Thicken Conditioner.

- Maintain a Balanced Diet: A diet rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals can support hair health. Include foods like eggs, berries, spinach, fatty fish, sweet potatoes, avocados, nuts, seeds and oysters.
- Stay Hydrated: Water is essential for healthy hair growth. It helps keep your hair hydrated from the inside out, promoting growth and preventing dryness and brittle strands.
- Manage Stress: High-stress levels can contribute to hair loss. Practice stress management techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing exercises to keep stress under control.
- Avoid Heat Styling Tools: Excessive use of heat styling tools can damage your hair and lead to hair loss. Try to limit their use and always apply a heat protectant before styling.
- Get Regular Trims: Regular trims can help prevent split ends and breakage, promoting healthier and thicker hair growth.
Remember, every small step you take towards caring for your hair contributes to your overall hair health. Together, we can make a difference in the fight against hair loss. Let's utilize National Hair Loss Awareness Month as a time to raise awareness, educate each other and support those dealing with hair loss.
