FAQ

Hair

What are the differences between “terminal hair” and “vellus hair”?

“Vellus hair” (from the Latin villus) is hair that grows on some parts of the human body and is shorter and softer than hair on the head and the beard. “Terminal hair” includes all the hairs that grow on the head and the combination of all of them.
These conceptual differences are very important for understanding the activity of the ingredients contained in VR6 Definitive Hair for hair loss, which acts on terminal hair of the head and not on vellus hair.

What is hair?

Each hair on the human head has the structural form of a plant, with a root and shaft.

The shaft is the visible part. The invisible part, below the skin (the root), is composed of a follicle inserted in a bulb, which is how the follicle gets its nutrition. The hair follicle generates the stem cells that make the hair grow and is one of the most active and dynamic parts of the body. This follicle is also fed with sebum produced by sebaceous glands, located on the sides, which give hair its elasticity and flexibility.

How many hairs do we have?

The number of hairs on the head vary according to the colour. Redheaded people have around 90,000 hairs, while people with black hair have around 105,000 and blonds can have up to 140,000. The average is 250 hairs per square centimetre.

Regarding hair follicles, an adult may have up to four million on the head (around 450 per square centimetre), reaching their maximum at the age of 20-25, after which the number starts to fall. The hair follicle is the “scene of the crime” for alopecia, upon which the “weapon” that causes the lethal damage is a micro-inflammatory process “wielded” by androgens, microbial flora, endogenous and exogenous stress, genetic imbalance and possibly other factors.

What are the phases that hair goes through?

The anagen phase is that of adult hair, well rooted, which hurts when pulled. This is a phase that lasts from around two to six years per hair based on variable parameters for each individual such as age, race, diet and the health status. The catagen phase is one of transition that scarcely lasts 10 days or so and the telogen phase, when hair falls out, lasts around three months.

How fast does hair grow?

One hair grows approximately one millimetre every three days, which is equivalent to one centimetre per month and 12 centimetres per year. If all the hair on a person’s head were placed end to end, they would cover a distance of approximately 20 kilometres.

What is the difference between “hair loss” and “alopecia”?

We should distinguish between hair loss and alopecia. Hair loss means the notable loss of a striking number of hairs with the slightest traction and alopecia means a significant decrease in the number of hair follicles per area. Hair loss or telogen effluvium may and often leads to alopecia, but not necessarily.

We can classify changes in hair as structural or follicular. Structural changes refer to morphological ones affecting the hair shaft and follicular changes originate in the root of the hair itself or the bulb of the hair follicle that often make reference to its biological cycle

Why is hair loss called “alopecia”?

The word alopecia is derived from the Greek word alopex (fox), as these animals lose fur in spring and autumn.

Can hair grow back?

Yes, hair can grow back as long as there are hair follicles present under the skin.

To have healthy hair, it is very important to keep your hair follicles, as each one may generate a hair in the anagen phase, so “feeding” the hair follicles (which VR6 Definitive Hair assists) allows for hair to grow on the scalp

How many types of alopecia are there?

Alopecia areata may be classified in different ways:

1. According to the amount of hair loss:

a. LPlaque alopecia areata refers to hair loss in a variable amount from the largest to smallest areas that generally take place on the scalp, but may affect any hair area.
b. In total alopecia areata, all the hair on the head is lost and the surface of the scalp is completely smooth.

2. According to the form of hair loss:

a. Circumscribed or localised form.
b. Cross-linked form, in which irregular areas without hair are scattered among areas with hair on the scalp.
c. Ophiasic form, where hair is lost on the back of the neck, forming a turban above the edges of the scalp. This type of hair loss is more resistant to treatment.
d. Diffuse form, which is incomplete and affects the scalp without the typical plaques. This form may be difficult to diagnose and may require a biopsy.

What is male pattern baldness?

It is the most common type of hair loss among men.

Male pattern baldness is related to a man’s genes and male sex hormones and is generally characterised by a receding hairline in the shape of an M and the thinning of hair on the crown.

What is female pattern baldness?

This is a typical pattern for hair loss among women due to hormones, ageing and genes.

After reaching menopause, changes in the levels of androgens cause many women to feel the hair on their head get thinner, while facial hair becomes thicker.

In addition, hair loss may occur in women for reasons other than female pattern baldness, such as hair breakage (due to hair treatments and twisting or hair shaft anomalies), certain skin diseases that lead to the scarification of hair follicles, auto-immune diseases, hormone problems, iron deficiency, vitamin deficiencies, etc.

Hair thinning is different than female pattern baldness. In female pattern baldness, hair thins mainly on the upper part of the scalp and crown. It usually begins to expand through the central part of the hair, leaving the frontal hairline intact and rarely progressing to total baldness as may happen among men. In general, neither skin ulcers nor itchiness are observed on the scalp.

How many hairs are lost each day?

A normal adult loses between 50 and 100 hairs each day, with the average lifespan of each between two and six years and the ability to renew its roots for up to 25 cycles.

The maximum weight that a healthy hair can support is approximately 100 grams, while a brittle or damaged hair can support around 30 grams of weight before snapping.

If all hairs on the head were joined, they could support a suspended weight of more than 7 tonnes.

What causes hair loss?

There is much debate about this subject, though the relationship between certain forms of hair loss and the immune system is well accepted. It seems that male hormones, particularly DHT (dihydrotestosterone), trigger an autoimmune response that begins by attacking the hair follicle, causing inflammation that gradually limits the follicle’s ability to produce hair.

Moreover, high levels of androgens also increase sebum production, which favours excessive microbial growth that leads to inflammation of the hair follicles.

Many other factors contribute to aggravating the process once it is underway. For example, damage to blood vessel walls can inhibit a growth factor that they produce normally, like the endothelium-derived relaxing factor (EDRF) or nitric oxide (NO).

In any case, the hair gets progressively smaller under the autoimmune assault, becoming shorter and thinner with each successive growth cycle until finally turning into tiny, non-pigmented vellus hair (fluff)

What is “autoimmunity” and what role does it play in alopecia?

More and more data show that there is an immunological signal that sets off alopecia. Current studies suggest that alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease, in which the body manufactures antibodies against a part of the hair follicle in a form of auto-allergy. Patients with alopecia areata may show antibodies against other parts of the body even without having disease in them.

Is stress a factor in hair loss?

Stress may sometimes play a role in widespread hair loss, although in these cases the hair normally grows back a year after the elimination of the cause. Except in cases of prolonged physical or emotional trauma, stress is usually not the cause of hair loss. However, an immunological alteration may also act as a secondary trigger with stress and compound the situation.

Starting at what age does hair loss become apparent?

Hair thinning first becomes apparent between the ages of 25 and 30.

Is hair loss hereditary?

Genetics may have something to do with it on some occasions. One out of every five patients with alopecia areata (20%) has someone else in the family with the same disease. Alopecia areata is more common in families in which there is a member with asthma, allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis or atopic eczema or other autoimmune diseases such as thyroid disease, vitiligo, juvenile diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus erythematosus, pernicious anaemia or Addison’s disease.

Most people that have alopecia areata are healthy, but a small proportion has associated illnesses. The exact nature of the links to these other medical conditions is unclear.

When is hair loss abnormal?

We consider hair loss abnormal when it is greater than 100 hairs per day. This corresponds to the percentage of hair in the final phase of its lifecycle. Hair goes through three phases: growth (anagen), transition and regression (telogen; less than 20% of hair is in this phase).

How does alopecia areata develop?

In normal conditions, the scalp produces hair constantly. In patients with alopecia areata, the affected hair follicles experience a sharp decrease in hair production. The hairs in the affected areas become very small and cannot be seen on the surface of the scalp for a certain amount of time. The hair follicles on the scalp remain under the skin, hibernating, and can start making hair again once they receive the right signal.

Some people only develop a few plaques of alopecia and their hair starts growing back after a year, even without treatment.

The evolution of alopecia areata is unpredictable. It is truly impossible for a doctor to tell a patient with alopecia areata how it will develop.

Hair loss prevention

What is the best product for alopecia?

There is no simple answer to this question, as there is no treatment that works wonders for everyone. Still, there are some products that produce acceptable results for most people—definite results like the end of hair loss.

Given that there are many factors involved in hair loss for both men and women, it is most interesting to approach the problem from various complementary angles to maximise the results and confront the different underlying causes. VR6 Definitive Hair possesses an exclusive formula of bioactive ingredients, featuring:


INGREDIENT
USE
CONCLUSION
BIOTINBiotin is an essential micronutrient for people due to the fact that it forms part of many metabolic pathways. Since it cannot be synthesised by the human body, it must be ingested in the diet sufficiently to avoid pathologies associated with lacking it.Due to the relation between the weakening and fall of hair and with the presence of low concentrations of biotin in the body, it is important to supplement the diet with sufficient amounts of this vitamin to give hair all the micronutrients necessary for proper development.
COPPERIt has been demonstrated that copper allows our bodies to use tyrosine, an amino acid that influences the pigmentation of the hair and skin. When we don’t have enough copper, our bodies cannot form elastin (a component of the connective tissue of the skin) correctly.Enzymes play an important role in the process of transforming new collagen into mature collagen and require vitamin C and copper to carry out their functions.
IRONA lack of iron can cause hair loss in men as well as women. However, this problem is more common in women, particularly in those with long or heavy periods. This lack of iron is detected through analysis and is easily corrected with medical treatment.Hair has the potential to store various essential elements and the body releases those elements it needs in the serum, where they can be redirected to the tissues with highest priority.
SOY ISOFLAVONESPhytooestrogens are non-steroidal molecules and possess a common heterocyclic diphenolic structure, which joins them with the oxo, keto, hydroxyl and methyl ester groups. From a structural and functional point of view, these are substances similar to 17β-estradiol and SERMs (selective oestrogen receptor modulators), since they are endowed with higher or lower oestrogenic activity.Alopecia is a gradual disorder whose beginning varies with age, though it normally starts in puberty. The rate of progression is also variable, ranging from periods of excessive loss to stages of minimal loss. Until recently it was accepted that hair follicle miniaturisation was an irreversible process, but today it has been discovered that, in early stages, the use of soy isoflavones may reverse it.
L-CYSTEINEThe hair protein, keratin, is a fibrous protein and is joined mainly by disulfide bonds and hydrogen bonds. It is high in cysteine (which explains the disulfide bonds) and low in histidine, methionine and tryptophan.Sulphur is a component of sulphuric amino acids. It is a necessary mineral for forming collagen and other protein components of connective tissue, like keratin in skin and other mucopolysaccharides that make up bones, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. Thus, the right intake of sulphur through sulphuric amino acids is crucial for proper maintenance of the skin, hair, ligaments and tendons.
PANTOTHENIC ACIDPantothenic acid is a vitamin also known as B5.Pantothenic acid has a long list of uses, the improvement of alopecia among them.
PYRIDOXINEVitamin B6, or pyridoxine, belongs to the vitamin B complex. It is a coenzyme that acts together with other enzymes in many chemical processes in the body.A lack of this vitamin mainly shows up as skin problems and is one of the causes of seborrhoeic dermatitis (greasy skin with scales), hair loss, skin rashes, etc.
SERENOA REPENSSerenoa rapens (saw palmetto) extract has proved to inhibit the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase, hindering the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT).Standardised saw palmetto extract has shown that it prevents the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone. It inhibits the union of dihydrotestosterone in nuclear and cellular receptor sites, thereby increasing the degradation and excretion of dihydrotestosterone. Its pharmaceutical activity has also shown to inhibit the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase, reducing the hormone DHT as a consequence.
VITAMIN EThe general term vitamin E is used to designate a group of eight natural species of tocopherols and tocotrienols. It is an essential compound because the body cannot synthesise it, so it can only be taken through the diet in small amounts.There are various theories about how vitamin E works in the body, and the most accepted explanation is that it acts in coordination with other molecules and enzymes to protect cells from the harmful effects caused by free radicals, currently considered an important antioxidant that brings substantial benefits to the body.
ZINCZinc (Zn) is an essential mineral in terms of nutrition. It is widely distributed throughout the body and is especially important for organs such as the brain, the pancreas and the adrenal glands. It is also found in high concentrations in the skin, hair, nails and retina.Just as a deficit of zinc is linked to hair weakness, it is scientifically proven that adding zinc supplements to your diet with reverse these symptoms, as it improves the properties and characteristics of hair.

How long does it take to see results?

At least three months, though in general it takes significantly longer because the hair follicles undergo a relatively long period in latency between growth cycles (generally around three months). Moreover, hair only grows approximately one centimetre per month in the areas where there is no thinning and generally much less in areas with thinning.

Is it possible that treatment for alopecia could increase hair loss?

When a clinically tested treatment is used, hair loss is a sign that the treatment is working by provoking a change in the hair cycle, which means that the affected hair is expelled to make room for new hair. Therefore, it is possible that you see a temporary cycle of increased hair loss, which is nothing more than an apparent increase in real loss because the hair falling out already arrested its growth cycle many weeks before. As such, today’s loss is a snapshot of the scalp’s status for at least two to four weeks. This hair was already in the loss phase even before beginning treatment.

Also bear in mind that hair loss is not uniform throughout the year, so sometimes the increase or decrease of the loss is simply a coincidence that goes along with your normal hair cycles. We must also remember that it is perfectly normal to lose more than 100 hairs per day if the problem appears when regrowth is insufficient.

How can I know whether or not a certain product will stop my hair loss?

The answer is very simple. Today we are in the era of evidence-based medicine characterised by objective clinical trials, so products that work are those backed by studies that show the ingredients’ benefits for alopecia. There are many scientific studies on the bioactive ingredients of VR6 that allow us to conclude that the product works in managing alopecia.

Are there treatments that work for frontal hair loss?

All treatments that work on the crown also work on the front, especially if they are used for longer than six months, which is enough to stimulate hair growth in the follicles.

When can I stop hair loss treatment?

As a general rule, you should continue to use hair loss treatment for as long as the positive results remain visible and never for periods of less than six months.

What will happen if I stop treatment?

If you stop treatment up to six months after beginning, the metabolic situation that causes alopecia will reappear and the alopecia will progress. Thus, treatment for alopecia should be taken continually, with breaks of less than three months possible if you want to avoid the progression of alopecia.

VR6. Concept, security and efficiency

How does VR6 work?

VR6 Definitive Hair’s exclusive formula favours proper nutrition of the hair, thereby preventing alopecia from developing and growing hair from the whole hair follicles. Below is a summary of the bioactive ingredients and their functions, part of the composition of VR6 Definitive Hair.

VR6 works from the synergy of its ingredients, with its maximum bioactivity corresponding to content of soy isoflavones and serenoa repens.

Since the beginning of the 21st century, tests on animals have shown that soy isoflavones, and particularly Genistein, are interesting for preventing the onset of alopecia areata, reducing the inflammatory activity of the hair follicles and thereby reducing the appearance of alopecia areata. These studies were later replicated in humans and obtained similar results.

Serenoa repens is a natural 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor, which makes it interesting in managing alopecia, characterised by the structural miniaturisation of the hair follicles sensitive to androgens in susceptible individuals, which is produced biochemically by converting testosterone into dihydrotestosterone through the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. Since many intervention studies have shown that dietary supplements with this bioactive ingredient are effective against alopecia in a significant number of people, also ensuring their safety, which is greater than that of the drugs used in the same indication. Moreover, serenoa repens has an anti-inflammatory effect on keratinocytes (effective suppressing the expression of genes activated by chemokine lipopolysaccharide, including CCL17, CXCL6 and LTB).

What adverse effects could VR6 produce?

VR6 Definitive Hair is a safe product for most people. Side effects appear in a small proportion of customers and are generally mild, described as dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting, constipation or diarrhoea, and are even lighter when the product is taken with food.

How is VR6 different than other products on the market?

The difference between VR6 and other products on the market is that VR6 is the only dietary supplement that contains soy isoflavones and serenoa repens in addition to ingredients for balanced nutrition.

How is VR6 like Finasterida?

Finasterida is a drug used alone or in combination with other medicine to treat benign prostatic hypertrophy. It is also used to treat male pattern baldness because of its inhibitory effect on 5-alpha-reductase. Like with almost all medicine, Finasterida has some adverse effects and must be taken with precaution in some cases.

VR6 Definitive Hair contains serenoa repens, whose inhibiting effect on 5-alpha-reductase has an effect analogous to Finasterida. Even if its unexpected effects are clearly lower, it may be used as a natural 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor whenever one desires with less adverse effects than its pharmacological counterparts.

Can I use VR6 if I am pregnant/lactating?

Due to the composition of bioactive ingredients, VR6 Definitive Hair should not be taken during pregnancy.

The bioactive ingredients of VR6 Definitive Hair are not excreted in human breast milk, so the product may be used during that period.

Can I take VR6 if I am undergoing laser treatment?

There are no contraindications for taking VR6 Definitive Hair with laser hair removal treatment. As mentioned earlier, VR6 Definitive Hair acts on terminal hair and not on vellus hair.

Can I take VR6 if I have celiac disease or am allergic to gluten?

The composition of VR6 Definitive Hair does not contain ingredients or additives with gluten, so it may be taken by people with celiac disease at no risk.

Can I take VR6 if I am diabetic?

The composition of VR6 Definitive Hair is compatible with treatments for diabetes and does not contain ingredients that could worsen your metabolic situation.

Can I take VR6 if I am lactose intolerant?

The composition of VR6 Definitive Hair does not contain lactose, so people that are lactose intolerant may take the products with no fear of an adverse effect.

Could VR6 give a false positive in an anti-doping test?

VR6 Definitive Hair does not contain any substance prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

Can I take VR6 if I have had cancer?

In general yes, but given the heterogeneous nature of tumours, it is advisable that you consult with your doctor before starting treatment.

Can a legal minor take VR6?

It makes no sense for a legal minor to use anti-hair loss treatment because alopecia does not generally begin before age 25.

Will VR6 make hair grow all over my body?

No, because the components of VR6 Definitive Hair have a special bioactivity for hair on the scalp.

Is VR6 a product for both men and women?

Yes. The composition of VR6 Definitive Hair is effective for both male and female pattern baldness.

How should I take the VR6 capsules: one in the morning and the other at night, or both at the same time?

Since the objective is to achieve adequate blood levels of the bioactive ingredients of VR6 Definitive Hair, it would be ideal for the capsules to be taken together on an empty stomach.

What will happen if I only take one capsule per day instead of two?

The correct dosage for VR6 Definitive Hair is two capsules per day. If a smaller amount is taken, the effects obtained will be less because the dosage of bioactive ingredients has been reduced.

For how long should I take VR6? Is it a lifelong treatment?

VR6 Definitive Hair should be taken continually for as long as beneficial effects on the hair are visible. You should never begin VR6 treatment if you do not use it for at least six months.

What will happen if I skip a day?

Skipping the recommended dosage for one day does not decrease the beneficial effects, which are accumulative, although we stress that to achieve the desired effects you should take two capsules per day.

If I have difficulty swallowing, may I break or open the VR6 capsules?

VR6 Definitive Hair capsules may be opened and taken with food, though the flavour of some ingredients may be unpleasant.

Can I drink alcohol if I take VR6?

There are no contraindications for taking VR6 Definitive Hair with the responsible consumption of alcohol, though CNCE recommends taking it with a balanced diet.

Can VR6 cause photosensitivity?

Photosensitivity is a skin reaction caused by the interaction between a chemical substance and exposure to sunlight. People with high skin pigmentation have this reaction more frequently.

The symptoms are characterised by the appearance, within minutes or hours after coming into contact with the product, of erythema, oedema, vesicles, blistering and/or itching and present clinical manifestations similar to sunburn. These symptoms are found in areas exposed to light and may vanish two to seven days after ceasing use of the product.

VR6 does not contain any ingredient or excipient that causes photosensitivity.

Can VR6 cause black stool?

Consuming a proper intake of iron is an important part of the nutritional management of alopecia, which is why VR6 Definitive Hair contains iron.

Black stool is normal when taking iron supplements and in fact is seen as a sign that the product is working properly.
