WHY YOU ARE LOSING YOUR HAIR
We would say that it is a myth that hair loss is completely
hereditary. Just because previous generations of your family have
experienced baldness, thinning hair, and receding hairlines, does not

your hair loss and thinning hair.
Most people are pre-disposed to certain types of hereditary hair loss
patterns. But listed below are the many other factors that contribute to
the acceleration and permanence of hair loss.
Excessive oil production from your scalp – the scientific term for
this oil is Sebum
Emotional and physical stress to your body
Emotional stress (a hectic lifestyle, high pressure
Physical stress (crash dieting, medication, pregnancy,
menopause, etc.) will cause your scalp to emit excess oils. The
build-up of this oil and the other listed items above creates an
unhealthy condition of the scalp.
The problem is that shampoo only cleans and treats your hair, but
does not clean your scalp. While making your hair look and feel clean
with ingredients like lusterizers, the same ingredients are being

creates an unhealthy condition of the scalp. The result is hair loss and
thinning hair. But regular use of oil does keep in stimulating the scalp
and promoting hair growth.
