Intro to Chemotherapy Hair Loss: 3 Key Ingredients Hair Growth Oils Must Have
As you probably already know because you have done hours of research, chemotherapy hair loss is a function of hair follicles being attacked by the chemotherapy treatment.
Chemotherapy attacks rapidly dividing cells. Hair cells and cancer cells are both rapidly dividing cells and chemo can’t differentiate between the cells.
During chemotherapy, you want to eliminate as many other hair-stressing situations as possible.
You can learn more about it right now in a FREE guide “12 Everyday Things Slowing Hair Growth: Hair Thinning Reversed.”
Fortunately, if the hair follicles weren’t killed, they are ready to get busy once you’ve finished your last treatment.
Of course, you will need to detox from the medication, so the first 68 days are important.
Growth may be slow at first, but we are here to help you navigate through it all. It’s important to give your hair and scalp plenty of TLC.
We’ll help you maximize your hair growth and help stop it from falling out. Continue reading to learn about three ingredients that hair growth oils must have.
Chemotherapy Hair Loss: 3 Key Ingredients Hair Growth Oils Must Have
1. Proven Penetrating Oils: Oils come in different sizes, and it’s important that the oils used are small enough to penetrate into the hair. If the oils used are too large, they won’t penetrate the hair and cause problems for your hair, scalp, and follicles. Though trusted by cultures forever, oils like coconut, olive, argan, etc., may have styling merit by adding a “feeling” of moisture and shine on the surface of the hair strand; it doesn’t go into the hair.
Unfortunately, their molecular weight is too large to penetrate most imbrications of the hair. Though shea butter is often heralded, it’s molecularly too large.
So, in certain situations, the slippery feel will at least allow combs and brushes to slide through a bit easier but has very little to do with strengthening or moisturizing the interior core of the hair.
The heaviness of the hair is due to its inability to absorb into the hair strand or follicle area, causing all sorts of short and long-term problems with hair growth, simple style ability, and longevity.
Heavy oils don’t add moisture to the hair. In fact, with a bit of heat, you might be doing to the hair what hot oil does to egg proteins in a pan. It makes them stiff (like cooked egg whites) with crispy edges, which might taste great as a fried egg.
In hair, though, it hardens the strands, crisps the ends (splits them), and breaks them. Keep using them, and you’ll end up with dry, thin, broken hair!
With scientific advances, new extraction methods have been employed to pull just the “essence” of the oils. These smaller versions are rare, expensive, and not a common ingredient for mass-market and salon products. These smaller versions of oils are the most beneficial to the scalp and hair growth bulb in keeping flexibility and pliability.
2. A Blood Circulation Stimulator That Is Hypo-allergenic:
It’s beneficial to use a topical and transdermal blood stimulator that makes the blood rush to the follicles to deliver a few extra loads of hair-building blocks. Not all stimulators are suitable. Some use capsicum (red pepper), limonene (citrus peel oils), Isopropyl Alcohol (medicinal rubbing alcohol), or linalool (umbrella term for terpene alcohol extracts, some as harsh as turpentine), and a host of volatile active oils.
These could be considered safe for most when used responsibly, but for those with sensitivities, your skin could react badly. At Belegenza, we’ve added a bit of a natural stimulator, menthol. Very few are allergic to it. As well we add just a bit to get the job done.
3. Emulsifiers That Keep the Follicles Moisturized Without Clogging the Follicle: Each day, as you struggle to keep each and every hair on your head happy, alive, and well, the chemicals that are hidden in those supposedly helpful products are terrorizing the acid mantel and sebaceous glands. As your scalp senses the terror from the chemically-laden hair products, it signals your sebaceous glands to help balance the acid mantle. The glands go into hyper-mode, squirting out sebum, and this is why your hair may look good in the morning, but by afternoon it looks like a hot mess.
