Proteoglycan Follicular Atrophy

Proteoglycan Follicular Atrophy is a documented pathology in all humans and is a condition where a wasting away of selective proteoglycans from the dermal papilla, the inner and outer root sheath, occurs, coupled with an ever-decreasing ability by the body to reproduce these.

It is clinically documented that even a small drop in the metabolic balance of proteoglycans is likely to exert a disproportionately large impact on their effectiveness.

Follicular Proteoglycan Imbalance Contributes to Disrupting the Hair Growth Cycle

When the concentration of specific follicular proteoglycans is below a specific threshold, their reduced presence prevents the activation and regulation of the complex process of hair follicle growth. This unbalances normal healthy regulated Hair Growth Cycling. An extended period of dysregulation and a continuous ‘lower than normal’ concentration of proteoglycans causes follicular degradation – this is known as Proteoglycan Follicular Atrophy.

Proteoglycan Follicular Atrophy follows on from a period of Follicular Hypo-Glycania during which the specific follicular proteoglycans needed for normal healthy hair growth waste away; this prevents the activation and regulation of the complex process of hair follicle growth in stages.
