Healthy roots. Healthy hair.
The nutrients in PRIORIN® improve hair growth from within.
The hair root has a very active metabolism. It constantly produces new cells for growing hair. Keratinocytes (key cells in hair) undergo cell division faster than any other cell in the body.*
The newly formed hair cells occupy the space of the previous cells and push them upwards in the hair root canal. The more the cells in the hair shaft are pushed upwards, the more keratin is produced in the cells. This keratin leads to cornification and ultimately the death of these cells. The keratinised cells are pushed upwards even further and form the visible hair above the surface of the scalp.*
Overall, hair relies on a strong microcirculation that provides nutrients for adequate growth.* The nutrients in PRIORIN®, including millet extract, L-cystine, and calcium pantothenate, then stimulate and improve hair growth and hair re-growth.
Performs real headwork.
The hair root and the three phases of hair growth.
1. Growth Phase (Anagenic Phase)
This is the phase of active hair growth. It lasts around 2 to 8 years.* In this period hair growth is sustained by absorption of nutrients from the capillaries supplying the scalp and root.* This phase is very active and flows smoothly, if the root is provided with sufficient nutrients.
In the healthy hair growing cycle, 80% to 90% of the hairs are in the growth phase.*
2. Transitional Phase (Catagenic Phase)
The transitional phase signals the end of the active growth of a hair follicle. During a period of around 2 weeks the hair root cells temporarily stop hair production and the root shrinks.
Between 1% and 3% of hairs are in the transitional phase.*
3. Resting Phase (Telogenic Phase)
During the resting phase, the hair remains in the root for up to 3 months. It then falls out due to washing, combing or hair re-growth, for example.
During a usual hair growth cycle the daily loss of up to 100 hairs is normal. Between 10% and 15% of the hairs are in the resting phase.*
Following these 3 phases, the hair-growth cycle starts from the very beginning.
