Do Glow For It Serums Address Causes Of Lash & Brow Thinning?
Glow For It’s new and improved formulas are designed to provide solution driven beauty. Where Glow For It previously focused on lash and brow growth, we have now delved deeper into what causes lashes and brows not to grow. From there, we have found the perfect ingredients to help provide solutions to issues that can hinder lash and brow growth.
What Causes Lash & Brow Thinning?
Thin lashes and brows are more likely to snap and break which means they are more likely to be short and sparse. Glow For It Serums aim to provide you with stronger and thicker eyebrow and eyelash hairs so that they can grow healthy and long. To do this, we needed to understand the causes of lash and brow thinning, such as:
- Natural Ageing Process
- Nutritional Deficiencies
- Genetic Factors
- Alopecia Areata
- Environmental Damage
- Medications & Medical Treatments
- Poor Hair Care Practices
Natural Ageing Process: With age, hair follicles can shrink and produce finer hair. In addition to this, the anagen phase of the hair growth cycle shortens, slowing growth and reducing density. Decreased levels of collagen and growth factors also contribute to this process.
Nutritional Deficiencies: Essential nutrients play a crucial role in supporting the various phases of the hair growth cycle. Deficiencies in vitamins (such as Biotin, Vitamin D, and Vitamin E), minerals (like iron and zinc), and proteins can lead to a disrupted cycle, weaker hair growth, and increased hair loss.
Genetic Factors: Genetic predisposition can determine the natural density and thickness of hair. Individuals with a genetic tendency for finer hair will have naturally finer brows and lashes, influenced by their inherited hair growth cycle characteristics.
Alopecia Areata: This autoimmune condition leads to the immune system attacking hair follicles, causing hair loss, including on brows and lashes. It disrupts the normal hair growth cycle, often leading to a shorter anagen or prolonged resting (telogen) phase.
Stress: Chronic stress can trigger telogen effluvium, where more hairs than usual enter the resting phase of the hair growth cycle, leading to shedding and reduced density.
Environmental Damage: Exposure to harsh chemicals, UV radiation, and pollutants can damage hair follicles and impact the hair growth cycle, hindering the growth and health of eyelash and eyebrow hairs.
Medications and Medical Treatments: Certain medications, including chemotherapy, can dramatically affect the hair growth cycle, often causing hair to enter the resting phase prematurely. While hair usually regrows post-treatment, it can be finer or have a different texture.
Poor Hair Care Practices: Over-grooming, excessive plucking or waxing of brows, and harsh makeup or removers can damage hair follicles and disrupt the normal hair growth cycle, leading to thinner eyelashes and eyebrows.
Through understanding these causes, we were able to find the right ingredients to best promote hair health and growth for lashes and brows.
