What are allergies?

What are allergies?
Does your skin or scalp itch? Is it red and highly sensitive to external influences? Approximately one third of the population suffer from the consequences of allergic reactions. Allergies are defensive reactions of the human immune system to certain substances, which the organism registers as foreign. These can be triggered by contact with the skin (so-called contact allergies) or the mucous membranes and also through oral ingestion. The cause is a myriad of different substance (so-called allergens) which exist in various forms in the environment, in foodstuffs, everyday objects and also cosmetics. Unsuitable care products, hair dyes and certain medications can trigger an allergic reaction just as easily as foodstuffs and jewelry (e.g. nickel).

Hair loss: enough to make you want to tear out your hair

Hair loss: enough to make you want to tear out your hair
Everybody loses hair on a daily basis. The reason is neither alarming nor threatening, but rather a natural “top-end” renewal process. The following occurs: the life expectancy of each individual hair is between four and six years. After that they die and fall out. As long as the hair follicle is intact a new hair will form and grow. It is completely normal to lose between 80 – 100 hairs a day. This does not qualify as excessive hair loss. Often long hair tends to be deceptive as it can easily look like a large amount of hair which is no longer growing on your head. If you’re worried about the volume of hair which is disappearing down the plug hole, then it’s a good idea to make the effort to count. In addition our hair has seasons. This means that it passes through a growth, transition and resting phase. After the resting phase is completed it falls out.Read More

A person’s skin is practically ”renewed” every month. In this process dead skin cells are replaced with new ones. Usually it is impossible to see the detached cells with the naked eye. However, if the growing cells form too quickly, the upper cells are unable to break apart from each other and stick together. If 500 or more of these cells clump together then they become visible on the scalp as flakes.Read More
