Over time, it’s natural to lose some strands of hair as others grow in. However, if you reach a point where you are noticing significant hair loss or thinning, then you need to start investigating the right solution for your hair.
How do you do that? Reading through this article is a great start, but also make sure you reach out to one of our experienced hair loss specialists.
How does it grow?
Firstly, it can be important to understand how hair grows. Hair is made of a protein called keratin, and grows from hair follicles all over the body (though we’re primarily concerned with the ones on your head). Hair then grows from the root, and is naturally shed at a rate of about 100 hairs every day.
Why do you lose hair?
As long as hair is continually growing from the same follicles, you will experience the same level of hair density. Hormones can affect the follicles, causing the hair to then become shorter and thinner until it is practically invisible.
Patterned baldness can also have ties to genetics, and in some cases factors such as stress, tight hairstyles, and medication can also contribute.
What are some effective hair loss treatments?
There are a range of hair loss treatments or cosmetic options available for you to choose from.
We can advise on the best course of regrowth treatment that will restimulate the follicles, with the aim of getting them to produce thick, healthy hair again. If this option is not applicable, then there are several cosmetic options such as hair pieces, hair toppers, and wigs that can be applicable. Our team will be able to advise which one is best for you, your current hair, and the look you’re trying to achieve.
Should you consider hair transplant surgery?
Hair transplant surgery is a very drastic option, and not one that we offer here at Meraki Hair Loss Clinic. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks that should be considered, and there is still a chance that the procedure still may not work.
That being said, at Meraki Hair Loss Clinic, we support each of our clients through their hair loss journey, and pride ourselves on post-transplant procedure aftercare. We will do our best to ensure your transplanted hair is well taken care of and encouraged to grow.
