The Newcomer to Your Routine

When it comes to looking good and maintaining our figure, we all have our routines: eat healthily, exercise regularly, cleanse, tone and moisturize. When it comes to hair care however, our commitment to routine varies.

Some of us prefer hair we can wash and wear. Others like to spend more time working their mane: blow drying, curling or straightening, gelling or waxing it into style. Others, still, have extra special requirements: a trip to the hair spa every now and then, a preferred stylist for trimming or drastic makeovers. Hair, indeed, is the one arena in which we can all agree to disagree.

But one thing’s for certain: we all want healthy, or at least healthy-looking, scalp and hair.

Now, apart from shampooing and conditioning, how does one achieve that, given the spectrum of dedication to hair out there? More importantly, is this even achievable for those who don’t feel like exerting too much effort on their mane?

The answer is yes, and it’s simple. One only needs to incorporate another player to their routine for leveled up maintenance: Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion.

Though primarily known as nature’s own remedy to hair loss, Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion also works excellently as a hair care agent. This means using it to help prevent hair loss, as well as taking advantage of its side effects. Novuhair also helps hydrate the scalp, maintain the hair’s natural luster and prevent early hair graying and whitening.

Made of herbal ingredients that include moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, virgin coconut oil and the natural essences of rosemary and peppermint, Novuhair nourishes the scalp and hair by increasing the flow of nutrients and improving blood circulation to the scalp. This, in effect, helps solve hair loss and grow back hair. At the same time, it strengthens the scalp against premature hair loss.

Using Novuhair is quick and simple for everyone. Those who want a quick and instant solution simply need to squeeze out the lotion onto their scalp and take a few minutes to massage. Do this after rinsing out the shampoo, while bathing.

Those who don’t mind spending extra time on their crowning glory may also use it as a leave-on styling agent throughout the day. Again, simply massage on enough lotion to cover the entire scalp, and then style your hair accordingly.

It’s an easy single step to slide into your already established routine, and one that can be effortlessly applied by wash-and-wearers and high-maintainers alike.

Inheriting hair loss — and its solution

 

When considering the causes of an ailment, one of the first places to look is our genes. Could it possibly be something you’ve inherited?

With hair loss, this is certainly the case. In fact, it is the most common cause of hair loss, called Androgenetic Alopecia. It occurs in about 95 percent of males and 70 percent in females. Studies reveal that this also occurs in combination with other factors such as aging and hormonal changes.

Symptoms of hereditary hair loss include a gradual thinning of the hair to complete hair loss on a certain part of the scalp, if not entire baldness. The hair loss pattern and rate is different among men and women, though they similarly occur in the 20s and 30s. Family history is the biggest indicator of when hereditary hair loss starts to take place, and at what rate.

The good news is that hereditary hair loss is treatable. And while invasive options such as hair lasers and transplants abound, nature itself has bestowed us with the remedy we need to deal with hair loss.

New-3in1-Clean-Spray

Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion is an all-natural formula for treating hair loss. It is made of herbal ingredients such as moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, aloe vera, the essential oils of rosemary and peppermint, and virgin coconut oil. Collectively, the ingredients help improve blood circulation to the scalp and increase nutrients to hair follicles. Other beneficial side effects include returning and locking the hair’s natural luster, and preventing premature graying or whitening.

Just as hair loss can be inherited from your family, so can you inherit the solution — from nature.

Heads up! Gary V on Novuhair: putting energy into prevention

GARY-90-x-140-mm-ColoredNothing describes Gary Valenciano quite like his moniker “Mr. Pure Energy,” He is the very image of youthful vibrance, whether onstage or not. That’s why it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he values the way he looks the same way that he values the core of who he is: a prayerful, faithful husband, dependable father, and an outstanding entertainer.

Part of what makes Gary stay young looking is his head of hair. What many people don’t know is that, like all other men his age, Gary once worried about hair thinning and hair loss. That’s why, at the first signs of the problem, Gary sought to find ways to prevent it from becoming worse.

“I first noticed the hair loss in the shower, after I toweled my hair dry. Then one day, my team of hairstylists noticed that my hair was thinning, too. That’s when they told me to look for the product that Fanny Serrano was using, a product called NOVUHAIR,” remarked Gary on his journey to regaining control over his hair loss.

NOVUHAIR is a topical scalp lotion that is a unique combination of 14 different natural ingredients and essential oils for a healthier hair and scalp. One of the factors of hair loss, according to studies, is stress, something that Gary experiences on almost a daily basis. Other factors include hereditary disorders, a persistent illness, major surgery, hormonal problems, childbirth & delivery, medications, infections, pollutants, and even excessive exposure to sunlight. And contrary to popular belief, hair loss is as much a problem for women as it is for men. In many cases, hair loss may be prevented or alleviated through early detection. In the case of Gary, his decision to try NOVUHAIR to prevent his symptoms from worsening made a big difference, and within a few months, he saw remarkable results.

Gary shares his experience with NOVUHAIR as he tells the story of their family hair history: “Hair loss runs in our family, too, even if it sometimes skips a generation. My brother and grandfather both lost their hair, but my dad still has a full head of hair at 87. I just wanted to make sure I take control of my symptoms. Now, I use NOVUHAIR everyday, and I’ve noticed that I don’t shed as much hair as I did before, especially after toweling my hair dry. And my hairstylists noticed it, too. I love using NOVUHAIR because it has this minty, cool effect that makes me feel like my hair is always clean and fresh.”

“In less than a month and half, I already saw results even if I was told to wait three to four months before I can see a difference. The effects on me were much faster. There were fewer strands on my white towel, which basically was within the normal boundaries of hair loss for an average person. Before using NOVUHAIR, I used to shed more.” This is due to the fact that NOVUHAIR penetrates deep to help rejuvenate, nourish, & maintain moisture in the scalp and hair. By improving the blood circulation in the scalp, NOVUHAIR helps stimulate hair growth and aid in preventing further, excessive hair fall, while also improving the overall appearance of the hair.

“I never endorse a product that I did not experience first. I have to make sure it is really effective. With Novuhair, I can say that it has really contributed to my peace of mind and overall well-being. And, heads up, as Novuhair is now part of my daily routine, which includes prayer, diet, and medication. God has truly lived up to his promise in my life, and as he says in Psalm 92:14 ‘I will keep you fruitful even in old age. Fresh and green.’ I am very happy now that Novuhair is a part of that.”

NOVUHAIR, Nature’s Answer to Hair Loss is available in all Mercury Drug outlets, Watsons, Rose Pharmacy, South Star Drug & Manson Drug, Metro Gaisano Pharmacy, The Landmark (Makati & TriNoma), J Centre Mall (Cebu), KCC Malls (Gen.

Abet Pano – 40, Chemical Engineer – Saudi Arabia

Mr Abet Pano Saudi Arabia Testimonial
Actually, I have no complaints or whatsoever regarding your products. It is basically a testimonial on how these products helped me replenish my thinning hairline. I was so overwhelmed with the results as I’ve used these for 7 weeks now. As a proof, I have taken an image of my hair before and after using these products.

I’m a Chemical Engineer by profession working in Saudi Arabia for 9 years. The extreme weather condition in the Middle East is one key factor why most of the OFWs have declining hairlines and mostly suffering with alopecia.

Thank God I’ve discovered these products and now I am starting to regain back my lost hair, not instantly, but at least gradually.

Thank you very much and more power.

Respectfully yours,
Engineer Abet Pano

Abby Asistio helps raise awareness on Alopecia Areata

Activa MediaSince she was four years old, singer, songwriter and TV host Abby Asistio has been suffering from alopecia areata, an auto-immune skin disease resulting in partial or complete loss of hair on the scalp and the rest of the body.

“I went through a lot of tough periods in my life. Growing up, I accepted the fact that I could never meet that standards set by the world when it comes to beauty. If I were to even fit in and be considered normal, I must resort to hiding under hats, bandanas and my ever reliable wigs,” said Abby.

Abby lived through the entire process of experiencing hair fall: losing it little by little, and then deciding to shave it all completely. She even tried other hair loss remedies when she lived in the US for several years, including chemical-based products that have resulted in negative side effects.

She was just starting to finally embrace her “baldness”, when upon prodding from family and friends, Abby decided to give Novuhair a try. She experienced remarkable results in just a few months of regular use.

“It was the first time since I was diagnosed with the disease that I actually saw hair growing on my scalp. I never stopped using Novuhair since,” remarked Abby.

Novuhair is made of herbal ingredients that rejuvenate and nourish the hair and scalp. It increases nutrient flow and maintains its moisture, as well as helps improve blood circulation. This stimulates hair growth and aids in the prevention of excessive hair fall.

In addition to remedying hair loss, Novuhair also alleviates scalp itching and prevents hair-graying, ultimately improving the overall health and appearance of the scalp and hair.

Late last year, Abby became the newest brand ambassador of Novuhair alongside TV host Kim Atienza. Past endorsers include hairdresser Fanny Serrano, beauty queen Gwendolyn Ruais and athlete Andrew Wolff.

“We at Novuhair are very happy to welcome Abby to our growing family. We are very happy for her as she triumphs over alopecia areata. Her testimonial is more than enough proof of our product’s efficacy,” says Sheila Mae Velilla, President of Nutramedica Inc.

One of the country’s top dermatologists have also affirmed the new growth of hair in Abby’s scalp, citing this as largely a potential result of the product’s effectiveness.

Speaking on behalf of other patients suffering from the disease, Abby is at the forefront of a national awareness campaign on alopecia areata. A couple of years ago, she started an Instagram campaign in which she invited friends and family to pose with a double “A” (inverted V) sign using their fingers. The response was overwhelming as it received more than a thousand photos to date.

Things are looking bright for Abby as she recently launched her album “Beautiful”.

“I have found my purpose and hope I can continue to inspire others with my story and music. I realize now that more than a disease, I have been given a gift to impart my testimony. Indeed, one must never give up hope.” said Abby.

 

 Spotlight on Alopecia Areata

More than just common hair loss

“A disease with unknown causes is very difficult to treat. This is the case with alopecia areata,” said Dr. Rica Mallari of the Philippine Dermatological Society.

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder where the immune cells of the body go against the hair follicles making the hair strands weak at the base and easy to pluck. It is characterized by bald patches on the scalp that may join together and eventually render an individual hairless. Alopecia areata and may also attack other hairy parts of the body such as the eyebrows and pubic area.

Alopecia has many types, among them are pattern hair loss or common baldness; telogen effluvium or temporary hair shedding; and alopecia areata which is considered the hardest to treat.

“The disease has a genetic predilection, meaning there are more chances of getting it if there is a family member affected. It is however, not infectious as no organisms are involved. Though inconclusive, extreme stress is said to trigger the condition in genetically susceptible individuals,” added Mallari.

Alopecia areata is generally asymptomatic – the patient is often unaware of his bald patches because there are no symptoms of pain or itching. Although some complain of a tingling sensation before a patch appears.

Alopecia can affect both men and women at any age. Its onset cannot be prevented and there are no studies to prove that healthy lifestyle can help cure the disease.

“There are a number of treatments and products for different types of alopecia depending on the case. It is important that the affected individual seeks help from an expert, preferably from a dermatologist of the Philippine Dermatological Society so that the condition can be evaluated and proper advice can be given,” said Mallari.

Among the products available in the market today is Novuhair. Dubbed as nature’s answer to hair loss, Novuhair is made from all-natural ingredients, including moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, virgin coconut oil, as well as the essential oils of rosemary, peppermint and lavender. Collectively these ingredients help improve blood circulation and increase nutrient flow to the scalp.

Moringa oleifera or malunggay is one ingredient that helps restore the skin’s condition and prevent falling hair. Sweet almond oil, another ingredient, is a moisture-rich oil that contains vitamins A, B1, B6 and E, as well as minerals such as magnesium and iron. Scientifically known as prunus amygdalus, sweet almond oil easily penetrates the hair shaft and follicles, relieving hair dryness and itching and providing nourishment to the hair to promote hair growth.

Lavender helps relieve itching, and like rosemary, another ingredient, it contains properties that help combat dandruff and disinfects the scalp. Lemongrass helps clean the scalp’s pores, while peppermint is known to slow the growth of bacteria and fungi, aside from having a relaxing effect on the muscles.

Novuhair users already notice a decrease in hair loss after only just one week. Hair growth becomes evident with regular use of the product. Once desired results are achieved, Novuhair may still be used as hair and scalp maintenance.

In response to growing demand from its users both here and abroad, Novuhair is now available in a special 2-in-1 Plus One pack, a combo inclusive of Novuhair Shampoo, Topical Scalp Lotion, plus an additional bottle of Novuhair Shampoo.

Just recently, Novuhair introduced two of its latest endorsers – TV host Kim Atienza and singer-songwriter Abby Asistio.

Atienza, fondly referred to as ‘Kuya Kim’, is an advocate of true health and wellness. He believes in the use of all-natural ingredients and Novuhair is as natural as a hair remedy could get.

Meanwhile, Abby Asistio knows how it is like to live without hair. She has suffered from alopecia areata at a very young age, and until recently, has lived bald under wigs, hats and bandanas. Today, with the help of Novuhair, the entertainer is experiencing hair growth on her scalp for the first time in years.

Abby Asistio – Alopecia Warrior, Singer/Composer – Philippines

Activa Media
I’m one of the new breed of young artists to join Manila Genesis Entertainment & Management Inc. I’ve recently released my debut, self-penned single titled “Beautiful” which was arranged by Jay Durias of South Border. The single’s music video is directed by Joaquin Valdes and is currently enjoying massive airplay on Myx as well as on Manila’s hottest radio stations.

As early as the age of four, I knew what it was like to be without hair. Diagnosed with alopecia areata, a condition that causes patches of hair loss around the body, I have lived through the entire process of experiencing hair fall: losing it little by little, and then deciding to shave it all completely last year. I even tried other hair loss remedies as I lived in the US for several years, including chemical-based products that have resulted in negative side effects.

One day, I’ve decided there was no more hiding. In September 2012, I took a stand and embraced my baldness. Together with my good friend Jing Monis, I’ve shaved my head and began with an Alopecia Areata Awareness Month Instagram campaign in which I’ve invited friends and family to pose with a double “A” sign using their fingers. The campaign grew to success and to date has over a thousand photos. On September 25 of the same year, I did a coming out concert where I performed bald in public for the very first time.

Last year I was highlighted as one of the top 41 best vocalists on The Voice Of The Philippines as one of its chosen contestants out of thousands of aspirants. Also a finalist of the Dove Real Beauty Campaign and one of Meg magazine’s 30 Young Achievers, I’ve made it one of my life goals to be a voice for those with alopecia areata. I am honored to be chosen as brand ambassador to Novuhair. This new platform will help me to continue my advocacy to share my music and life story.

Abby Asistio Before and After

Since using Novuhair, I’ve experienced remarkable results. Visible signs of hair growth appeared within five months of use – and this is after years of baldness caused by alopecia areata. The strands of my hair are thicker and more healthy-looking. My scalp is clearly nourished and invigorated. When it comes to hair growth, nature is on my side with Novuhair.

A Tale of Style: Tim Yap on Preventing Hair Fall, the Natural Way

A Tale of Style: Tim Yap on Preventing Hair Fall, the Natural Way

MANILA –  Meet Tim Yap, the newest ambassador of NOVUHAIR®, nature’s answer to hair loss.

If the name rings a bell, that’s because Tim also happens to be the style icon that hosts on TV and produces some of the most talked-about events in town. Yes, that Tim Yap.  Today, he joins the growing ensemble of personalities who swear by NOVUHAIR®’s efficacy – and reveals to us why he’s never looking back.

The Cost of Style
An influential figure in both Manila’s showbiz industry and elite social circles, Tim has donned an eclectic range of hairstyles throughout his career, from long and short cuts to straight and wavy fares, to dyed looks and fringed bangs. Unfortunately, going the extra mile in looks and style comes at a cost.  Eventually, all the styling took a toll on his mane, leading to one fateful morning when his pillow and shower drain gathered more hair than usual.  It didn’t help that members of Tim’s own family, including his dad and brother, suffered naturally from hair loss.  At such a point in his career, Tim couldn’t possibly go the route of losing more hair.

The introduction to NOVUHAIR® came during a jog with good friend Kim ‘Kuya Kim’ Atienza, who managed to convince the skeptical Tim to give the product a try.

Within just 14 days of continued use, the results were enough to change a mind. NOVUHAIR®, Tim knew, was working as promised.  Soon he was waking up to less fallen hair on the pillow.  Drainage flowed better in the shower.  In the mirror, not only did it appear that his scalp was growing more hair – it all looked like thicker and fuller, as well.

Tim knows he has found the real deal when it comes to addressing hair loss.  “My hair is my statement,” he says.  “My style is bold, but never bald.”  For Tim, living fully means living with a full head of hair – the crowning glory that is evident of one’s healthily cared-for scalp.

The Undeniable Power of Nature
NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion, Herbal Shampoo, and Herbal Conditioner, are all made with herbal ingredients that collectively combat hair fall.  These ingredients – which include moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, virgin coconut oil and the essential oils of rose-mary, lavender and peppermint – help increase nutrition and enhance blood circulation to the scalp, reducing the rate of hair fall whilst spurring hair growth.

NOVUHAIR® is available as a Topical Scalp Lotion, Shampoo, and Conditioner.  Purchase the Scalp Lotion individually, or any one of the following combo packs from Mercury Drug Stores and all leading drug stores nationwide: a NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion & Herbal Shampoo set; a 3-in-1 Pack inclusive of NOVUHAIR® Topical Scalp Lotion, Herbal Shampoo, and Herbal Conditioner; and a 2-in-1 Plus One Pack inclusive of two bottles of one bottle of Topical Scalp Lotion and two bottles of NOVUHAIR® Herbal Shampoo.

Experts Agree! Novuhair: Nature’s Answer to Hair loss

Pep box ad Feb 18 _28Making healthy lifestyle changes has become the trend these days, and one notable habit shift is the preference for the all-natural. Experts in fitness, beauty and science are reaching a consensus on the beneficial use of herbal products – and while objectives vary, one need that mother nature has been serving as of recent is hair loss.

Beauty icon Fanny Serrano would know. It was no other than during the height of his career that he discovered he was losing hair. After a series of failed product trials, Fanny fatefully chanced upon Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion. With skepticism and nothing left to lose, he decided to give it a try – and came away from the experience discovering the answer to his problem.

Novuhair is made of all-natural ingredients that include panax ginseng, moringa oleifera, the essential oils of rosemary, lavender and peppermint, and virgin coconut oil. Known as nature’s answer to hair loss, Novuhair nourishes the scalp by increasing its flow of nutrients and improving blood circulation. This helps reduce excessive hair fall and eventually remedies hair loss, while also working as a preventative measure. It comes with other beneficial effects, as well: delaying early hair graying, and maintaining the hair’s natural luster.

Fanny is not the only one who has discovered Novuhair’s efficacy. Today, nature’s answer to hair loss has been tested and proven effective by its wide user base. This is thanks in part to the backing of the wellness community, including medical experts such as Dr. Edwin A. Bien.

The founder of LeBIEN Wellness Specialists, Dr. Bien is a long-time member of the local wellness movement. He started his clinic in the early nineties with the mission of spreading knowledge and championing the benefits of natural medicine, educating health practitioners, patients and the public alike. As of today, Dr. Bien has publicly vouched for the effectiveness of Novuhair’s all-natural ingredients, having given an interview on radio about the best topical solution to hair loss.

Novuhair is available as a shampoo, conditioner and topical scalp lotion – varied enough to complement different preferences and lifestyles, and as a complete set to deliver Novuhair’s optimum potential. Endorsers range from athletes to beauty queens, models to musicians, politicians to businessmen – all of whom could attest to the efficacy of Novuhair.

One of the latest in the brand’s string of ambassadors is TV Host and triathlete Kim “Kuya Kim” Atienza. The nation’s trusted weatherman has maintained a reputation as an expert, building on his knowledge for healthy living through research. It is thus of no surprise to find that for Kuya Kim, nothing beats natural when it comes to being good to your body.

And nothing could get as natural as Novuhair when it comes to caring for our scalp.

For the experts, Fanny, Dr. Bien and Kuya Kim, it all comes down to knowing your body’s needs and understanding that nature has provided it all – and for hair loss, too, no less. After all, in this day and age of medical discoveries and revelations, why go on with anything artificial when you could certainly go all-natural?

Novuhair delivers, the experts agree. And in the face of hair loss, the experts will tell you in unison: Novuhair is all you need.

Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion is available as an individual purchase; part of a combo pack that includes a bottle of Novuhair Herbal Shampoo; and a 3-in-1 pack that includes the herbal shampoo and a bottle of Novuhair Herbal Conditioner. Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion is available in all Mercury Drug Stores and all leading drugstores nationwide.
