Hair Loss Prevention and Treatment

Hair grows, lives, then falls out, and that is the natural order of things. In most cases of hair loss, especially male pattern baldness, it is a normal physiological process. But for those who struggle to come to terms with it and for others where hair loss is significant, there are a few treatments and techniques that may help.

Prevention and Treatment

To avoid baldness and to improve the overall health of your hair, make sure to fill your diet with eggs, fish, green vegetables, trace elements, zinc, and amino-acids. You should also regularly massage your scalp with essential oils to activate micro-circulation and avoid the aggressive manipulation and styling of your hair.

There are also many treatments that can minimize signs of hair loss. Shampoos and serums that fight hair loss can help whilst using them, but the effects will wear off after stopping them. Food supplements rich in vegetable gelatin and vitamins can also help. For pathological hair loss, a medication can be prescribed by your GP or dermatologist.

You may also consider hair transplantation. Under local anesthetic, hairs are taken from the back and sides of the head and transplanted to the bald areas. This is performed as tiny punch biopsies as follicular units containing 1-4 follicles are transplanted.

Reduction of bald patches can be used an alternative or alongside hair transplantation. It consists of withdrawing the smooth part of the bald patch and bringing it closer to the hairy zones.
