Receding hairline, baldness, thinning of hair and other problems related to hair fall are increasingly growing these days. Most of the time, hair follicle starvation is the main reason, behind hair fall and thinning of hair density. The modern methods for the treatment of hair related problems include Follicular unit extraction, where naturally occurring groups of follicular units are extracted from hair restoration patient’s donor area, and then, transplanted into the affected area. FUE is particularly considered an excellent technique of hair transplantation.
Hair loss in Males:
If we talk about receding hairlines, partial or full baldness and problems like thinning of hair, in males, there can be lots of reason and hair follicle starvation is one of them. This hair follicle starvation occurs mainly due to excess amount of DHT, being produced inside our body. DHT or Dihydrotestosterone is a sex steroid and androgen hormone, found in males. Excess DHT is the primary cause of male baldness.
As far as the problem of thinning of hair density is concerned, it is important to know about the reasons behind it first, and then correct them. In general, at the initial stage, people try to ignore, when such problems start occurring, but knowing the reason behind hair loss as important as arresting the problem.
After detecting the reason behind hair loss, it’s time to diagnose it. So, the best diagnosis starts from bringing down the production of excess DHT and this can be done through some natural ways, such as, the use of Saw Palmetto, which has no side effects. Saw Palmetto, being an extract of a fruit called Sereona repens, is rich in fatty acids and phytosterols. It is a preferred potential herbal treatment for male pattern baldness. Consuming healthy food such as, fresh green leafy vegetables, fruits and corns is very helpful in growing and maintaining healthy hair. Daily diet, having rich content of multi-vitamins will provide necessary nutrition into your blood, which will feed your hair follicles.
Hairline surgery can also be done for re-growing hair, in the affected area. This can be done through a surgical technique, where individual hair follicles are extracted out from a part of the body, called the donor site and then transplanted to the affected site, known as recipient site.
Hair loss in Women:
Hair loss in women is rather a complex issue, and there are many reasons, behind hair loss problems in females. In general, 60-100 strands of hair are lost every day in females. It can happen at any time of the day, in the morning shower or while brushing the hair etc., its normal. According to American Academy of Dermatology, the causes of loss of hair in females can be pregnancy, heredity, stress/depression, trauma, certain medical conditions, consumption of alcohol, poor bowel movements, and side-effect of any drug or medication. Telogen effluvium is a phenomenon that is usually seen in females after pregnancy, surgery or drastic weight loss, and it is one of the many causes of hair loss problems in women.
Hair transplantation can be carried out for treating the affected area directly. But, taking good care of health, nutritious diet and medication is equally important.
