The search for perfect hair is never easy, but what about when your hair is thinning? The uphill battle of fighting hair thinning as a result of genetics, aging, or even nutrient deficiencies can at times feel defeating. There are so many products on the market that promise results but it often feels like nothing is sustainable. If any of this resonates with you, then you will want to become familiar with Pomanox®. So, what the heck is it?
What is Pomanox?
Pomanox® is a standardized pomegranate fruit extract cultivated in the Mediterranean regions of Spain. The benefits of pomegranate extract are wide-reaching. It is a natural anti-inflammatory, a cardio-protective, and a great source of antioxidants and vitamins. Pomegranate even helps combat a number of diseases including but not limited to cancer, high-blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis, cardiovascular disease, and high cholesterol.
Additionally, Pomanox® specifically, has been shown to have a number of cosmetic benefits too! Studies have shown that it can help to even skin texture and tone while simultaneously protecting elasticity. This study also saw that Pomanox® can increase hair density, growth, and thickness. When consumed as a dietary supplement, Pomanox® can improve hair health and quality.
Why is my hair thinning?
Hair thinning can occur for various reasons. There are biological and environmental factors that deeply impact the way that your hair grows. Genetics play a major role, but so do hormonal fluctuations like when you become pregnant or postpartum, going through peri-menopause or menopause, and if you suffer from PCOS. As women go through these hormonal changes, more than your mood changes. Your hair can change, becoming thicker or thinner, color and luster can become dull, and generally most women see a massive increase in hair shedding as they age.
In addition to biological changes, there are a number of environmental factors contributing to hair changes. One of the biggest, and most controllable factors is styling habits! If you dry your hair with a towel, blow dry your hair, brush your hair from top to bottom or when wet, or heat style in any way, you are damaging your silky strands. Here are some tips on how to stay ahead of keeping your luscious locks on your head.
Instead of cotton towels or pillowcases, opt for a microfiber hair towel and a silk pillow case. The friction from cotton can encourage tangling and even pull out strands due to friction. If you blow dry your hair each day, consider air drying when you can instead. Heat styling can’t always be avoided but whenever you can, go natural! If you must heat style, use quality ceramic products, and a heat protectant spray like these. While in direct sunlight, UV rays can also damage hair in a similar way. Consider wearing a hat when you can or using a UV/SPF protectant for your hair and scalp when enjoying the sunshine.
Restrictive diets and diet changes can impact your locks negatively. When you are on a restrictive diet, your nutrient absorption is limited and when your nutrients are depleted, your hair is weaker and grows at a much slower rate. Restrictive diets are not the only restriction that can cause damage to your hair. Did you know that restrictive styles can too? It is time to ditch that professional high bun and let your hair hang low! Let your hair down or opt for relaxed styles - let loose! Also be sure to brush your hair starting at the ends! Who knew? And never brush your hair when wet, use a wide tooth comb instead.
How Does Pomanox Help?
When tested both topically and as a dietary supplement, Pomanox® helped increase the fullness and strength of hair. In fact, when taken as a dietary supplement, it was even more effective than topical application. Pomanox® also improved the rate at which tester’s hair grew and even increased the number of hairs in the “growth stage”. It is packed with antioxidants, which helps to make hair follicles stronger too! Punicalagins which are large molecules prominent in pomegranate juice and contain potent antioxidants. Polyphenols are water-soluble polyphenols and a characteristic feature of the fruit, pomegranate. These antioxidants naturally stimulate the production of nitric oxide, a vasodilator that helps to improve blood circulation especially to your scalp.
In addition to benefiting your hair growth goals, Pomanox® has also been scientifically proven to promote healthy, glowing skin and helps to work actively against the physical signs of aging. It has even been suggested that Pomanox® has the ability to combat UBV damage to the skin and hair too. Pomanox® shows the capacity to stimulate collagen and hyaluronic acid which both help keep your skin even and glowing. These both enhance the skin’s elasticity and hydration to the skin too.
