Reasons That Might Be Delaying Your Hair Regrowth
You have been on the The Traya Treatment plan for a couple of months now and have still not seen any significant results. Well, we do understand how desperately you are waiting to see the desired changes and it’s no secret that we want to see the results on you too. Let’s try and first understand what are the possible reasons behind these delayed results.
Here are a few points to help you get the desired results from a Dermatologist - Dr. Shefali Saini
As you know, hair regrowth is a painstakingly slow process and requires a lot of patience but the results you get at the end of this treatment plan are just worth the wait. The most important thing at this point would be to stay strong, not give up just yet and continue with the prescribed medication as the hair that you have regained with the help of the treatment will otherwise go back to its previous condition.
Why is it taking so long?
Your hair goes through a cycle with four distinct phases. Anagen or growth phase lasts for 2-6 years. The catagen (when hair detaches from follicles) phase which lasts for 2-4 weeks. The telogen phase (when your follicle prepares for the next cycle and your hair is resting near-surface to shed) lasts for 3-5 months. Finally, the exogen phase is when your hair finally falls and the new hair starts its next anagen phase.
In treating your hair loss we have to work with these four phases and therefore the hair regrowth treatment takes longer than expected. Most of the time, this hair cycle can be triggered due to several reasons like poor diet, hormone imbalance, nutrition deficiency, or even an illness and its related medication. So the best tip for you is to not neglect your hair, maintain a healthy lifestyle, and have a well-balanced diet.
What are the possible reasons you are seeing delayed growth?
If you have been using our products for a couple of months now and have still not seen the desired results, ask yourself these questions.
- Have I been consistent with the treatment?
Any kind of gaps or delays in medication due to reasons like forgetting to take the medicine may be because you have been busy. This would be one of the reasons why your regrowth process is taking so long.
- Have I been skipping any step of my medication?
Skipping a particular dose in the day, even of a single medication that is prescribed to you assuming that your next tablet intake will cover up for the lost medication is another reason why you might be not getting the desired results.
- Have I been taking the right dosage?
If you have not been following the exact treatment that was advised by the hair coach for example if you have only been taking external care of your hair by applying the hair root serum but not following the given diet plan, then you might have to still wait longer to see the expected results.
- Have I made the suggested lifestyle changes?
The way you maintain your regular life also does play an important factor when it comes to hair regrowth. Irregular sleeping patterns or a delay in the frequency of meals could be possible reasons why there’s a delay in new hair growth. If you have rekindled your past addictions like smoking or drinking, it is suggested that you manage the intake in order to obtain the results.
- Have I been able to regulate my stress levels?
If you have been under a lot of pressure lately or exerted yourself more than what your body can take, you might not get the required hair growth even if you were regular with the treatment plan.
Other Reasons that might cause delayed hair regrowth:
- Untreated hormonal changes:
Often women with underlying PCOS or hypothyroidism may take longer as compared to unaffected individuals to show the desired results. If you are experiencing fatigue, weight gain, cold, anxiety, sweatiness, mood swings means your thyroid gland needs some extra attention and special care.
- Underlying Nutritional Deficiency:
Low levels of Vitamin D, Zinc, Iron, or Biotin will lessen the effects of minoxidil and other hair-related treatments. These deficiencies may tend to cause a delay in hair grow
Here are some quick tips that you can follow to speed up the hair regrowth process.
- Consume a healthy diet
It is rightly said that the strength of your strands is greatly affected by the kind of food you eat. This is to say that at times even the best hair products might not help you grow long beautiful tresses if your diet is not healthy. Bad eating habits will reflect in the condition of your hair as they turn out to be brittle and porous. Omega 3 fatty acid-rich foods are one of the most potent foods that help grow better quality & robust hair.
- Improve your sleeping patterns
Just like the way sleep is important for your health, it is extremely necessary for growing hair that has been lost. This is because the health of your hair is largely dependent on the protein synthesis of your hair along with the release of enzymes and hormones which occur during the night’s sleep. You can try the Nasal Drops that reduces stress and aids in a restful sleep.
- Lessen the use of sulfate-based shampoos
Sulfates are brutal on your scalp and can cause aggravation and itchiness. Over utilization of sulfate shampoos may make your hair rough, dry, and weak. It might likewise cause scalp aggravation in certain individuals.
- Exercises or practice yoga
Yoga asanas for hair growth are mostly forward-bending. The forward-bending asanas help in increasing blood flow towards your head. The blood circulation increases, and this helps in nourishing the scalp and hair follicles.
Hair regrowth is a slow process and it depends on every individual’s internal health and external environment. A treatment that worked miracles for someone else might take much longer for you since no two individuals are the same. The best advice would be to follow the correct treatment plan and stay as consistent as possible. If you still have any questions you can speak to your hair coach today. Book a call now.
