Did you wake up this morning and look in the mirror to notice that there is more hair in your brush than usual? Or that your style does not look the same due to a thin or bald patch? Hair loss can be scary but it is not the end of the road if dealt with properly.
To decide the best treatment for hair loss it is important to first find out the root cause as this will decided which of the many treatment available will be suitable.
There are several different types of hair loss; the top three causes are genetics, disease and lifestyle. If you cannot accurately find the reason on your own a visit to your doctor or a trichologist (a hair a scalp specialist) may be able to shine some light on the problem.
The 3 main routes to correct hair loss if possible, Hair Replacement, surgical or non- surgical, and re-growing hair which is called Hair Restoration. Some people get confused as they are often used interchangeable and thus incorrectly.
Hair restoration is a selection of methods used to restore the hair naturally basically trying to find a way to get it to grow back. People have a lot of bad hair habits, which at first may not cause any problems but over time can lead to serious damage. Hair replacement is using any form or wig, weave, unit to replace the lost hairs; this is a fantastic option for those who are unable to grow back the lost hair.
A few simple changes to your lifestyle can make the world of difference not only for your hair but also for your health in general.
Improve your diet. What goes in must come out. If you feed your body junk it will break down. You do not have to become a super organic vegan. Try having a green smoothie a day or a herbal tea instead of coffee. Research the alkaline diet and start from there.
Using oils such as Rosemary and Castor oil have been said to stimulate growth when applied to the hair and scalp. Having regular scalp massages, oxygen treatments and low laser therapy can also stimulate the follicles to assist in hair growth.
While you are incorporating all of the previous tips into your new hair care routine, it does not change that fact that now you experiencing hair loss of some form. Wigs, weaves, and hair replacement units are a fantastic and affordable option. The demand is incredible and there is amazing quality so that most are undetectable. Also the stigma around wearing wigs has increased and they are now seen as a fashion accessory. Use this as an opportunity to try out styles that are a little more daring. If you have a little bit more of a disposable income and are looking for a more permanent fix, a hair transplant may be the net step. The technology is advancing at a remarkable rate; I’m making it so that people who only a few years ago had no chance of ever regrowing their hair can now have more options.
I received my certification from The US Trichology Institute and the American Medical Certification Association as a Hair Loss Practitioner and I’m offering non- surgical procedures which can either be hair additions or re-growth treatments if the person is eligible, and that would be determined by a free scalp analysis. I look at your scalp under a microscope which magnifies the scalp 200x to see if you are eligible for re-growing hair.
So COVER IT UP OR FIXIT!!
