Why does hair fall out? Prevention and most effective remedies
There are few things that fill you with quite as much confidence as a good hair day, and finishing off a sharp suit or a new designer shirt with a slick hairdo is one of the easiest ways to make yourself feel like a million dollars. But what if your hair is no longer the thick and shiny mane it once was?
Hair loss or alopecia is a physiological phenomenon that affects – albeit in different measures – 65% of the male population, with a further 35% of the female population also falling prey. For many people all around the world – especially those who find themselves affected by this ailment from an early age – it’s not just an aesthetic concern, but a serious social hindrance, too. Hair loss can make you want to hide away out of shame or embarrassment, undermining your self confidence and self esteem.
So, what exactly causes this unwelcome phenomenon – and is there a cure?
Hair loss is often hereditary, and can be the result of a hormonal imbalance, but it’s fair to say that environmental factors and general health status have a role to play, too. Unfortunately, modern medicine hasn’t yet developed a remedy that can completely prevent it from happening, but nevertheless, medical research has made it possible to recognise the symptoms early on, giving anyone affected by alopecia the chance to take action and minimise further hairloss before it’s too late.
The good news is, there are plenty of things you can do to help keep your locks intact and stop alopecia in its tracks. A healthy, balanced diet that is rich in fibre, vitamins (especially B and H) and polyphenols, gives the hair and its bulb the nourishment needed to maintain their strength and slows down cellular aging. Massaging the scalp at least once a day for no less than 20 minutes will promote blood circulation and increase oxygenation: a double benefit for the hair bulb, that can make it stronger and more stable.
Of course, you’re not entirely on your own when it comes to hairloss prevention, and thanks to a wealth of cutting-edge new products, help is finally at hand. Some of the newest natural treatments can give unexpected and very welcome results, even for those who have lost their faith in finding a way to preserve their hair.
One of the most successful treatments to have been developed in recent years is artificial hair transplant Biofibre® – a light, not invasive and safe aesthetic surgery, designed to restore the complete hair coverage upon a partially or totally bald scalp. Biofibre – Biocompatible Artificial Hair is a material that perfectly blends with natural hair, and best of all, it’s completely undetectable.
Those undergoing the treatment can select the exact hair type they are looking for, right down to the length and colour, resulting in a completely natural look and feel all over the head.
As its name suggests, Biofibre – Biocompatible Artificial Hair is a completely biocompatible material, meaning that every risk of rejection, skin irritation and deterioration is practically non. The only concern for those undergoing is the investment of time; the results don’t happen overnight, and dedication is required to ensure the best results.
Normally, after an implant, the patient has to undergo further medical treatments to ensure complete success, including applying an antibiotic-based solution for about 5 or 6 days – but some might say that it’s not a huge amount to ask in the grand scheme of things. It’s also crucial to avoid stressing the hair in any way as the transplanted strands need about 30 days to adhere completely to the bulb – so pulling and rubbing are both to be steered clear of.
Once the initial bedding in period is out of the way, Biofibre transplant has been shown to be one of easiest ways to restore your hair to its former glory – and with it, your self-esteem. If you’ve been suffering from hairloss, then no doubt you’ll find that it’s worth every penny of the investment.
A great head of hair is certain to restore your confidence in everything from business meetings to social engagements, giving you the edge when it comes to a sharp appearance – so don’t let hairloss put an end to the things you love about your luxurious lifestyle. If you do one thing for yourself this year, then why not make it giving your locks a new lease of life? You’re bound to thank yourself for it once you see the results.
