Having thick hair makes us more confident, while different styles, colors and lengths can also show our individuality. But there are some people who suffer from hair loss, which can take a serious toll on our confidence. So what exactly causes our hair loss?
Causes of hair loss
If you're experiencing hair loss yourself, the first thing to note is that you're really not alone. This is a very common disorder that affects 65% of men by age 60, and many women. There are many myths about male pattern baldness, including that longer hair puts pressure on the roots, poor circulation is a cause, and that hair loss is inherited from mom's male relatives. Regular shampooing, good hair hygiene, and good nutrition can certainly help slow the process, but most hair loss and thinning are just part of the aging process and come down to predetermined genetic factors. Some health conditions, including anemia and thyroid disease, or hormonal changes and emotional trauma can also cause hair loss — but most causes have nothing to do with internal or systemic disease. Unfortunately, it's just a natural part of getting older that most people have to deal with.
Ways to improve it
The good news is that there are many ways to improve hair loss. Shampoos and treatments on the market promise to help, but are often not scientifically proven. It's always worth giving them a chance to see what works for you, and they can also be used with other treatments to enhance the effect. For those who can afford it, a hair transplant can successfully hide hair loss, but it also comes with associated risks.
PRP is very popular among men because it stimulates hair growth but is not as invasive as a transplant procedure. Growth factors are extracted from your blood and reinjected to stimulate the roots. This can also be used as a preventive procedure before the effects of hair loss are visible. Just draw a small amount of blood and put it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma. Once detached, the PRP is detached and injected into the target area. This is a short treatment that only takes 30-45 minutes to see results after 3 weeks, with maximum collagen regeneration taking up to 3 months. The real benefit is that it gives people with hair loss the confidence to see noticeable results in no time.
Mesotherapy is also a very effective and painless technique for slowing hair loss. Medical trials have shown a 60% chance of regeneration with mesodermal therapy, and it is also a non-surgical treatment that you can try if you are also suffering from hair loss.
