The Hair Growth Cycle Revealed Part Two: Expert Anna Urban Shares the Truth On Tresses

Check out Part Two of our The Hair Growth Cycle interview with expert Ann Urban below! 

Anna, is there any way to extend the growth cycle of our hair?         

Try adding a nutritional supplement that is high in complex B vitamins and folic acid to work with every phase of the hair growth cycle. Specially formulated supplements for hair like, Aviva Hair Revitalizer, contain biotin (also known as vitamin H, for "hair")-a part of the B-complex group, which increase circulation to the scalp, thereby promoting hair growth. It is best to take a supplement that has a synergetic complex that also supports follicle nutrition. Helping to support your follicles with the nutrition they need, can often transform even the most lifeless strands into a fuller, more beautiful head of hair.

What helps us retain more of our new hair growth if we seek more hair length?

An average woman sheds about 100 hairs a day as part of the natural hair growth cycle of rest, growth and shedding. With a well balanced diet of proteins, amino acids and B vitamins and with the follicle support from specially formulated hair supplements, it is possible to prolong the growth phase while slowing down the resting and shedding, making your hair thicker, stronger and more lush.

What types of products should we avoid?

Products containing Phthalates, commonly found in many beauty products like especially nail polishes and hair sprays. They have been studied by the FDA for their safety. The findings are insignificant, but just to be on the safe side, best to look for phthalate-free products.

Any additional tips or tricks?

On hot summer or humid spring days, use a dry shampoo after you blow dry. The ingredients will help to absorb moisture and oil all day long, so your style will stay fresh. I love using it as a styling product when applying to fresh, clean hair to add texture. Gently spray on from roots to tips to maintain uniform texture throughout the hair. Then style away. It works on any hair type and length, but girls with thin or oily hair will notice a dramatic difference.

Thanks Anna!
