Resolve Pregnancy’s Lingering Beauty Effects

CC by Emery Co Photo

Ahhh, the joys of pregnancy. It’s a beautiful time – which comes with some not-so-beautiful side effects. Pregnancy causes the body to go through major changes including weight gain, changes in breasts and the occurrence of stretch marks. Unfortunately, there are many changes that women don’t know to expect because they are not talked about. Many of these pregnancy side effects tend to reverse on their own after your hormones stabilize a few months following delivery. If they don’t disappear naturally, there are solutions to correct them.

Itchy skin
Dry, itchy skin is common during pregnancy due to the elevated estrogen levels and stretched skin. Areas most prone to dry, itchy skin during pregnancy include the stomach, legs, breasts, palms of your hands and the soles of your feet. Along with itching, some pregnant women will also experience red, pimple-like bumps known as pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (PUPPP).
Solution: First, try not to scratch. Avoid hot baths; though they may feel good at the moment, they dry your skin even further. Moisturize with ointments or creams (StiVectin-SD Intensive Stretch Mark Cream or MD Skincare Hydra-Pure Firming Body Cream) as much as possible. Ointments and creams moisturize more effectively than lotions. If you still can’t find relief, ask your doctor about a topical anti-itch cream.

Hair loss
While you’re pregnant, your hair may get thicker and grow quickly because the increase in hormones prevents hair from shedding. Your hair normally resumes its normal growth pattern once your hormones balance out, which normally takes about three to six months. At this point, the hair that didn’t shed during pregnancy will probably fall out, making it seem as if you are losing large quantities of hair.
Solution: Try not to wear your hair in tight braids or ponytails, which will cause breakage. Make your diet rich in fruits, vegetables and protein, which are essential for healthy hair. You can also use hair growth-stimulating products, such as CHI Power Hair Loss kits or Nioxin hair products, to speed up the process.

How to use NIOXIN Scalp Renew

Those of us who suffer from scalp hair loss or thinning hair can now benefit from NIOXIN Scalp Renew, a one-of-a-kind anti-aging scalp treatment that is often referred to as microdermabrasion for the scalp. These hair and scalp treatments can be used in addition to any scalp hair loss treatment system. Always make sure to wear gloves while using NIOXIN Scalp Renew.

Directions for applying NIOXIN Scalp Renew:

  • Apply the mousse-like product throughout the dry scalp. In order to ensure thorough coverage, part the hair into four large sections and outline each section with NIOXIN Scalp Renew.
  • Then, part each of the larger four sections into thin rows of hair about 1” apart from one another and apply the scalp treatment product to each line. Then go back and part each of the large four sections into thin columns about 1” apart from one another and apply the scalp treatment product in the lines.
  • Massage the scalp treatment product into the scalp in an upward circular motion for one minute to ensure thorough coverage and initiate activation. Discard any scalp treatment product left over in the bottle.
  • Leave the product on for 10 minutes and then rinse with warm water until the scalp treatment product is totally out of your hair and scalp.
  • Finally, wash and style hair as usual.
For the best results, use NIOXIN Scalp Renew correctly every 30 to 45 days. For extra information on NIOXIN Scalp Renew or any other NIOXIN products, visit The Beauty Place.

Nioxin: Skin Care for the Scalp

Our scalp is a part of our skin that we often ignore, but it needs some tender love and care in order for us to maintain strong and healthy hair. Just as with the skin on our face, everyday toxins, such as chlorine, sunlight and UV rays, may threaten the quality of the scalp, thus resulting in cell-aging, which thickens the scalp and leads to the aggravation of thinning hair.

The average shampoos, conditioners and styling hair products aim solely to clean, condition and style hair but many contain damaging alcohols and PVP film formers which may clog the follicles and worsen thinning hair. The Nioxin Research Labs developed the most advanced, natural-based hair loss treatment system. Nioxin’s hair loss treatment shampoos aim to inhibit DHT, which is one of the hormones most blamed for hair loss.

After a 3-question assessment, Nioxin matches you with a tailored hair loss treatment Nioxin system for your specific scalp or hair concerns, maximizing your results. The eight different Nioxin Systems are geared toward different kinds of hair ranging from coarse to chemically treated manes. Each of the eight different hair loss treatment Nioxin systems comes with the NIOXIN Cleanser, NIOXIN Scalp Therapy and NIOXIN Scalp Treatment. If you are struggling with thinning hair, find your perfect Nioxin Hair Care System and give it a try.

Following are the eight different Nioxin Systems:

  • Nioxin System 1 – For Fine, Natural, Normal to Thin-Looking Hair
  • Nioxin System 2 – For Fine, Natural, Noticeably Thinning Hair
  • Nioxin System 3 – For Fine, Chemically Enhanced, Normal to Thin-Looking Hair
  • Nioxin System 4 – For Fine, Chemically Enhanced, Noticeably Thinning Hair
  • Nioxin System 5 – For Medium/Coarse, Natural, Normal to Thin-Looking Hair
  • Nioxin System 6 – For Medium/Coarse, Natural, Noticeably Thinning Hair
  • Nioxin System 7 – For Medium/Coarse, Chemically Enhanced, Normal to Thin-Looking Hair
  • Nioxin System 8 – For Medium/Coarse, Chemically Enhanced, Noticeably Thinning Hair

Choosing a Shampoo for Thinning Hair in Men or Women

Nioxin makes shampoo for thinning hair for men and women. Divided into 8 systems, NIOXIN shampoos are developed to meet the needs of different hair types and different stages of hair loss.

Choosing the Right Shampoo starts by answering these 3 short questions:

  • Do you have thin hair or medium to course hair?
  • Have you Chemically treated your hair?
  • Are you beginning to notice hair loss or is it noticeably thinning (receding hair line, scalp shows through hair)?

Systems 1 to 4 are for thin hair, while systems 5 to 8 are for medium to course hair.

Shampoos for Thin Hair:

  • System 1: Thin, non-chemically treated hair in beginning stages of hair loss.
  • System 2: Thin, non-chemically treated and noticeably-thinning hair.
  • System 3: Thin, chemically treated hair in beginning stages of hair loss.
  • System 4: Thin, chemically treated and noticeably thinning hair.

Shampoos for Medium to Course Hair:

  • System 1: Medium/Course, non-chemically treated hair in beginning stages of hair loss.
  • System 2: Medium/Course, non-chemically treated and noticeably-thinning hair.
  • System 3: Medium/Course, chemically treated hair in beginning stages of hair loss.
  • System 4: Medium/Course, chemically treated and noticeably thinning hair.

Thinning hair Nioxin shampoos are available individually and as part of starter kits that include a scalp therapy (conditioner) and scalp treatment in addition to the cleanser (shampoo).
