In today’s world, hair loss is a problem that troubles many, many people across the globe. Even within India, the demand for hair transplant in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, etc. is increasing at a rapid pace. Irrespective of age, both men and women suffer from hair thinning and hair loss.
Below are five tips that can help your combat hair fall effectively:
- Never brush wet/damp hair
Hair is very vulnerable when wet or damp. Brushing wet hair could cause your hair shafts to break and even uproot them, leading to hair fall. Instead, run your fingers through your hair to remove tangles and brush when the hair is dry.
- Avoid heating tools and chemical treatments (straightening, curling, coloring)
Heating tools like curlers, blow dryers, and straighteners can strip your hair of their natural oils, making them dry and brittle. The same goes for harsh chemical treatments as they can damage the hair roots, thereby leading to hair fall.
- Go Herbal
Do your hair a favor by switching to herbal products as they are not loaded with harmful chemicals. Use natural rinses(reetha, shikakai) and essential oils as leave-in conditioners. They strengthen the hair from the roots.
- Practice Yoga
Certain yoga poses stimulate hair growth by boosting the blood circulation in the scalp. They are – suryanamaskar, vajrasana, sarvangasana, and halasana. Practicing these early in the morning greatly helps fight hair loss.
- Say Yes To Natural Juices
Natural juices extracted from onion, garlic, ginger, and aloe vera are excellent stimulants for hair growth. They are laden with beneficial compounds that strengthen your hair follicles while imparting shine and luster to your hair.
These natural solutions work best when the hair fall problem is at the early stage. Unfortunately, large bald patches and severe cases of hair thinning call for a more efficient and potent solution – hair transplant.
In hair transplantation process, doctors surgically remove hair follicles from the area of the scalp where the hair is resistant to hormonal changes (back and sides of the head) and then restore them on the bald area. FUT( Follicular Unit Transplantation) and FUE(Follicular Unit Extraction) are the two most favored methods of hair transplantation.
In FUT, a small strip of tissue containing the hair follicles is extracted from the donor area and further dissected into smaller follicular units which are then replanted on the bald areas of the head. Contrary to this, FUE targets singular hair follicles which are extracted using microneedles and replanted on the recipient area. In this method, the extraction marks are hardly visible, unlike FUT which often leaves a visible scar on the donor area. Other than these two, we also have Aesthetic Hair Implants – a state-of-the-art hair transplant procedure. It produces much better results than even FUT and FUE by providing much more dense and natural looking hair. The hair planted using the AHI technique is not only guaranteed to look better, but also stay longer.
Hair transplants are the most effective means to solve your hair woes as they are permanent. (You can check out reviews of RichFeel, Batra, etc.) The restored hair continues to grow naturally after about two to three months of the procedure, and eventually, the hair growth becomes dense like before. After the initial recovery period, you can shampoo and oil your hair as usual. Hair transplants can fix bald patches, hair thinning, and even uneven and receding hairlines.
