    Stay ahead of hair loss

    FORMER American Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said a funny thing to the graduating class of 2011 at Yale.

    She told them: "The most important thing I have to say today is that hair matters. Pay attention to your hair. Because everyone else will."

    It's true, too. Recently, it was reported that Britain's Prince Harry, 28, will likely lose a lot of his hair by age 50. His brother, William, 30, is showing signs of going bald.

    In fact, it was recommended that he seek therapy now, so that he can hang on to his heart-throb status.

    A good head of hair certainly helps one get noticed.

    Arizona State University sociologist Rose Weitz noted: "(Hair) is public, on view for all to see. And it is malleable, allowing us to change it more or less at whim. As a result, it's not surprising that we use our hair to project our identity and that others see our hair as a reflection of our identity."

    Which is why those who experience hair loss report feelings of dejection, shame and low self-confidence.

    There are many reasons for hair loss. Too much exposure to sunlight is one of them. Other reasons include poor diet, treating one's hair with chemicals, and the presence of stress.

    One way to combat hair loss is to turn to certain products. And, the more natural, the better. Style Aromatherapy's Hair Loss Control Kit is one such product.

    It contains nourishing, natural essential oils that gently pamper both hair and scalp.

    Its patented technology, Betofix, will fortify hair, rejuvenate the scalp and control hair loss.

    Here's how it works:

    Hair Loss Control Shampoo cleanses and strengthens the hair at its root.

    Next up is the use of two to three drops of Hair Loss Control Concentrated Ampoules. Apply onto the scalp and massage it into your hair, from the scalp to the ends.

    The third and last step is optional. A temporary cosmetic solution, Hair Loss Control Keratin Fibres can hide thinning hair.

    The fibres intertwine with your own hair and bond securely onto your hair with electrostatic, giving the impression of a fuller and more lustrous head of hair.

    A set of the products, comprising shampoo, ampoules and Keratin Fibres, retails at $79 and is available at Guardian, SaSa, John Little and Meidi-Ya.
