Hair loss could be a sign of ageing, but it could also result when:
* You are suffering from a thyroid disease or severe infections
* You have just given birth
* You are taking medications chemically formulated to treat cancer, heart ailments, high blood pressure, and gout
Here are some options you can look into to grow your hair back:
* Hair Grafting. Hair grafting is a procedure whereby a hair-bearing portion of the scalp is taken out and then cut into segments to be transplanted into the area where there is some degree of hair loss. The procedure is usually performed in a dermatologist’s clinic, but the surgeon might put you on local anesthetics or even a sedative to make it as pain-free as possible. Hair grafting is best for individuals whose hair fall problem is genetic.
* Scalp Reduction. Not to be confused with hair grafting, scalp reduction entails the removal of the skin where hair no longer grows so that the hair-bearing part can be stretched in a way that it will eventually be able to cover the balding area.
* Use of Hair Growth Products. There are serums and creams formulated to stimulate the growth of hair. To guarantee your safety, look for hair growth products that are FDA-approved and which do not contain harmful chemicals.
If you’d rather go natural, there are different ways you can treat hair loss naturally, as well, and these include:
* Changing your dietary plan to include saw palmetto, zinc, pumpkin seeds and Biotin. These ingredients help deal with hair loss problems by inhibiting DHT, the hormone that when in higher levels can bind to the hair follicles, blocking away nutrients, and eventually causing the follicles to weaken. When the follicles are weak, they are prone to breakage. Reducing the levels of DHT helps to prevent this from happening, and this you can achieve by increasing your intake of foods that have the capability of inhibiting DHT.
* Massaging your scalp to increase blood circulation. Sufficient blood flow to the scalp helps to ensure that the hair follicles are properly nourished.
* Reduce exposure to stress. If work is stressing you out, take a break. Get a hair spa or a body massage, go shopping or someplace where you can relax and recharge. And get enough sleep. Studies are showing that stress can negatively impact the health of your hair.
* Take vitamin supplements. Vitamins A and E are especially good for hair loss problems. Vitamin A is a rich antioxidant that aids in sebum production, while Vitamin E is necessary to facilitate blood circulation. But make sure not to take too much Vitamin A, though, as high levels of Vitamin A can actually trigger hair loss.
It is important to keep in mind that different people may react differently to hair loss solutions. Especially if your hair loss problem is so severe, you might want to consult with a professional first before considering any hair loss treatment.
