Last September 21, 2017 at Dillinger’s 1903 Steak & Brew, Minoxidil Regroe showed their sincere support for Alopecia Awareness Month by hosting its Blue Party. The inspiration behind the theme of the event is the blue ribbon used internationally to represent Alopecia.
The grand event was set to raise awareness and understanding on what alopecia is and how people with this condition cope. In fact, guests of the said affair even voluntarily cut their hair as a symbolic gesture of support. It is truly a heartwarming gathering of VIPs, bloggers, and media friends of Minoxidil Regroe that has a common purpose – to help encourage people with Alopecia and to educate the public further about it.
Moving along the program, an inspiring alopecia advocate and survivor shared her journey with the autoimmune condition. She bravely spoke of how she surpassed it despite the stigma that comes along with it.
“Alopecia should not be ignored because it affects not only the outer appearance but also the inner being. People do not understand that it is not as simple as shedding hair from one’s scalp or body. It is an autoimmune condition which resulted to hair loss,” said Au Perez
To elaborate further what Au Perez said, alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease which causes the immune system to attack hair follicles. This results to partial or complete hair loss on the scalp and other parts of the body. The most common types of alopecia areata are alopecia areata patchy (coin-like patches on the scalp or other areas of the body), alopecia totalis (total hair loss on the scalp), and alopecia universalis (complete loss of hair on the scalp, face, and body).
On the website of National Alopecia Areata Foundation, the foundation presented that shockingly a number of 147 million people worldwide are affected by alopecia areata. All of whom have a lifetime risk percentage of 2.1.
Dr. Vinson B. Pineda, the renowned Filipino dermatologist who brought Minoxidil Regroe in the Philippines, revealed along the program the effectivity of Minoxidil Regroe. He remarked that it is the first treatment for hair loss and other cases of alopecia that prompted wonderful results for both men and women.
“Minoxidil Regroe is scientifically proven safe and effective to grow hair,” explained Dr. Pineda. “Consistent use of Minoxidil Regroe allows hair to grow back longer, regaining our brave brothers’ and sisters’ lost self-confidence and self-esteem.”
Part of Minoxidil Regroe’s effort is to educate the public about hair loss. The brand continuously provides and conducts free hair and scalp consultation to its consumers with the support of its trade partners nationwide. This is Minoxidil Regroe’s way to bring attention to the importance of attaining healthy hair and preventing cases of progressive hair loss which affects a person’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
