Thinning hair is an issue that a lot of people have as they age. It’s extremely common for people to see their hair thin out. If you want to stop thinness — or regain some of the hair you lost — here are a few things that you can try.

Change Your Diet

If you want to keep your hair healthy and prevent your hair from thinning, you’re going to want to make sure you consume plenty of iron and protein. If you make a point of eating healthy, nutrient-rich foods, you’ll see the overall health of your scalp improve.

What kind of things should you be buying? To start, you should you should be eating more lean protein. Fish, like salmon, is an especially great choice. You should also make sure you are eating a lot of dark leafy greens, like spinach and kale.

Massage Your Scalp

When you shampoo your hair in the shower, make sure you massage it carefully. If you take great care of your scalp, you will see the condition of your hair improve dramatically.

One of the reasons that hair starts to thin is because the hair follicles are in bad shape. If you take the time to massage your scalp in the shower, you’ll be able to improve the condition of your hair follicles.

Treat Your Hair With Care

You should always be careful about the way that you treat your hair. If you don’t take care of your hair, the condition is going to worsen.

Heat styling is something that can cause a lot of damage to your hair. If you use a blow dryer, flat iron, or a similar device on your hair, you should try to limit how often you use it.

Coloring your hair can also be very damaging, especially if you are lightening your hair. If you are opting to color your hair, you should make sure you go to a skilled stylist. If your hair appears to be in bad shape, you should have a protein treatment done. A treatment like this can improve the condition of your hair follicles.

Take A Medication Or Supplement

With that said, prescriptions aren’t your only option. You can also take a supplement that will thicken your hair. If you are looking for hair supplements, you should seek out something that contains folic acid or iron. Both of these things are great for your hair.

Start looking at treatment options and see if you can find a way to improve the overall health of your scalp. You should be able to come up with a way to keep your hair thick and healthy.…

Is Provillus Better Than Rogaine?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 30 years, you’ve heard of rogaine and probably seen all their commercials for hair loss. What you might now know is that originally the main active ingredient in Rogaine ( minoxidil) was first introduced as a medication to help men with enlarged prostates. It wasn’t until people started to report that they had an increase of body hair since taking the medication. It was then when experts started to focus this ingredient as a hair loss supplement that you can put on a bald area to start growing hair.

When it was introduced the product spread like wild fire among men who were suffering from androgenic alopecia and other hair loss issues. Rogaine was advertised everywhere and people who rubbing this topical treatment to help regrow their lost hair. Rogaine went through some changes since it was first introduced as technology improved however the medication itself is still pretty old school in terms of hair loss treatments. With new research and studies, new medications come to the market. The latest and newest of the hair loss treatments is called Provillus. ( Read Provillus Review )

Provillus takes what Rogaine did with minoxidil and then pushed it ever further by adding other natural hair loss ingredients to help the effectiveness of the medication and to limit some of the side effects that Rogaine was known for having. Provillus has both a topical and an oral treatment that helps fight hair loss from inside out giving you great results in a shorter amount of time. Rogaine has yet to really offer a similar approach to their medication and thought it is still popular due to it being the first of it’s kind, more and more people are starting to switch over because they are seeing such great improvements. The only thing to consider is the type of hair loss that you are experiencing before choose to take any type of medication. If you are experience areata hair loss than taking medication may not be the best thing to do. Normally after a few months your hair will naturally grow back taking medication might interfere wit it since the hair loss is usually due to stress and not a chemical imbalance.

It also best to do your own research on the two and decide which is better for you. However, if you want something that has taken what works and expanded on that then the obvious choice is a no brainer. Keep checking back for more updates on the best hair loss medications to take when experiencing any type of hair loss.

Understanding Hair Loss and Getting In Shape

This site is about understanding hair loss and what you need to do to prevent/treat it as well as understanding the how to live a healthier life whether it pertains to eating better or exercising more. Some people may claim that they know what they need to do in order to stay healthy but the reality is they are pretty far off from what it really takes. You might be asking what hair loss has to do with weight loss, right? Well, to put it simple, nothing.

You see, both are issues that affect us today and while they may not be related to each other ( tho poor nutrition can contribute to hair loss) it’s still beneficial to become as knowledgeable as possible on these issues so we can have a much better understanding. Hair loss and weight gain, the dynamic duo of destroying ones self esteem. The most common contributor to both of these has to do with mainly two factors. Genetics to a certain extent, and poor eating habits.

Genetically hair loss is a factor and tho some people want to blame genetics on weight gain, I beg to differ on that statement. The only tie that I see with family and weight gain is simply passing down poor eating habits to our children. If parents have crappy eating habits and eat junk food all day and drink tons of soda then that’s what their children are going to mostly eat and they will soon develop the same health issues that they have. It’s not because it’s in their genes, it’s because they were never taught to eat the right foods because the people responsible for feeding them always feed them junk food. You will find some articles on here about green juices and workout programs that will help you get in shape as well as hair loss medications that might work for you.

Hello Team,

As of today, 359 staff members have completed the Employee Kindness survey. Our goal is to have at least 1000 responses so please encourage your staff to take this 5 minute survey by January 31. Please ensure staff are given the time to do this and access to computers.

How to Access the Survey:

The direct link to the survey is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KEI-Empl-KP

In addition the survey can be accessed from the front page of Voices.

PLEASE SHARE WITH STAFF IMMEDIATELY —

Solar panel work on the roof of the north side employee parking structure is nearly complete; however, parking has already been freed up for use. All staff that were requested to park elsewhere during the project in this structure are now requested to return as soon as possible.

The next phase of the project will be the south side employee surface parking lot. This work is scheduled to begin this Monday, January 23rd. The entire parking lot will be closed during this phase; therefore, staff are requested to relocate to the north side employee parking structure. Access to the structure may be obtained on Ventura Canyon Ave, Cantara St, and Roscoe Blvd. Existing parking cards will work at the structure.

Stack parking on the roof may be necessary to accommodate all staff. This service will be available beginning Monday, January 23rd between the hours of 8am and 5pm and provided by our current tram/valet vendor, MPI. Early morning tram service will be concentrated on the north side to assist south side staff in getting to the hospital and MO5.

Your patience during this next phase is greatly appreciated. Please contact me with questions.

Please find below a message from our regional president and executive medical director emphasizing the importance of being familiar with our “Believe Me” policy. We will be encountering new members to Kaiser Permanente soon and want to make sure that we provide a consistent and positive first visit for each of them.

If there are any questions or concerns please let me know.

Thank you
A message from Julie Miller-Phipps, regional president, KPSC; and Edward Ellison, MD, executive medical director, SCPMG, regarding the “Believe Me” policy:
Now and over the course of the next few weeks, many new members will have their first encounters with Kaiser Permanente. It is essential that we make it a good one. The “Believe Me” policy underscores that we believe people who say they are KP members – even if they don’t have a current ID card or medical record number on file. It is one way for new (and current) members to be assured that their care and concerns are our highest priority – and one way for us to start building positive, long-term relationships with our members, based on trust.

Additional Communications: Reminder messages have recently been re-posted or re-sent via various communications channels (Inside KP, Managing this Week, Front receptionist newsletter, and others) and we will continue to leverage these vehicles. Your voice and your personal messages will amplify and reinforce these efforts.

Bill Hold Period: To be clear, the Believe Me policy does not require that we provide care free of charge. It establishes a 90-day period during which we will hold bills while we check membership systems for coverage. Once the member information is reconciled with our business systems, we will apply the plan provisions to ensure we are appropriately reimbursed; that we collect for care that is not covered by a Kaiser Permanente plan; or that we capture data to recognize any community benefit health services we provide.

The Need is Immediate: Right now, saturation of “Believe Me” information is crucial: employer groups or the Covered California exchange may experience delays in providing data about newly enrolled KP members. If we don’t have adequate time to process and populate our internal systems, there may be a period during which covered members do not appear in our systems. Addressing this gap is why we established our national Believe Me policy in 2014, and why are reiterating it today.
