It is no wonder that our hair plays a significant role in the fashion industry too. It completes the overall look, and it can also break the overall appearance. However, a wide array of styling chemicals to make our hair look good like hair sprays, hair curlers, hair straighteners, and hair colors can destroy your once healthy hair. You may experience extreme hair fall, baldness, and thinning of hair. Often, we only realize the overuse of treatments when we already see and feel the harmful effects. Others experience worst side effects even if they only do it once. Bella Rose Medical Aesthetics can help you restore your damaged hair like it never happened.

One of the common effects of hair damage is hair fall. Although it is a regular occurrence to all people, too much hair fall is not a good thing. Our hair is so brittle that even soft brushing can cause it to break, and there is no such thing as 100% hair fall-free individual. Different factors affect hair loss. Hair products are one of the misleading culprits with your hair problems. Many try experimenting with the extensive selection of available shampoos and treatment products in the market. Packaging and marketing ads make it more appealing to consumers to use the product, switching from one brand to another. However, people are mostly naive when it comes to reading the ingredient labels on the packaging. If there is an active ingredient of sulfate, specifically sodium lauryl sulfates and sodium Laureth sulfates, you should be wary. It causes your hair to dry up, which can later break your hair. It removes the healthy proteins that your hair needs. The sulfate causes the bubbly effect of your shampoo. It can be very relaxing, especially when you start to lather it into your hair, giving you the illusion that it works and you would feel good and clean. It is psychologically relaxing, but it is not always the case. Another chemical that causes hair damage is parabens. Parabens are preservatives that allow longer shelf-life on the product. The active ingredient penetrates deep down to your skin tissue and can later disrupt your hormonal function.
Psychological imbalance also causes hair to fall. Often, people who experience stress are more susceptible to hair fall. Although it is temporary, it can lead to severe problems. So if you ever encounter touching your hair and seems like you are about to go bald, think of your emotional state and assess it. A positive outlook not only prevents your hair fall but can also be beneficial to your overall well-being.
A family history of baldness or alopecia is also a common factor. It affects your scalp and sometimes your entire body hair. It can also be short-term, while some cause permanent hair loss. The condition is not only limited to hereditary causes. Factors like hormonal imbalance, medical conditions, or aging, can be one of the reasons.
What are the common symptoms of hair loss?
Often, hair loss is not a drastic loss of hair. Instead, it is a gradual thinning of your hair located at the top of the head. You may also notice patches of bald spots. On rare occasions, it may be itchy or painful as the hair starts to fall. There are also receding hairline that becomes more visible and noticeable widening of hair on the scalp. It is normal to loose for an average of fifty to a hundred hairs a day, and it’s not noticeable. But some cases experience a sudden loss of hair, especially those with medical conditions.
Suppose you notice that your hair falls more than usual, like when you’re taking a shower, and you see that you drainage clogs because of too much hair after washing, or you’ll notice a large clump of hair in your brush. In that case, you should already take caution and consult a doctor to give you appropriate treatments or recommendations to prevent further loss.
What is the best hair restoration treatment?
There are several ways to prevent hair loss and address hair restoration. Identifying the causes can help you treat the condition. Replacing your hair treatment and shampoo to more natural ingredient-based products can help you lessen hair loss. There are also available topical creams that you can directly apply on your scalp. Severe cases may opt for medical surgical procedures like hair transplant surgery, scalp reduction, and PRP therapy or platelet-rich plasma therapy.
Hair transplant surgery
A hair transplant is a process of adding more hairs to the area of your scalp. A part of your existing thick hair on your body will be taken and planted on your scalp. The procedure usually is advisable for thinning or baldness because of an injury or a natural occurrence like aging.
Scalp reduction surgery is where a part of your skin will be moved and adjusted to cover up the baldness on your scalp. Usually, the skin from the side of your head is pulled up and stitched to cover up the baldness. Unlike other procedures, scalp reduction requires a period of recovery to let your skin heal. You may initially experience hair thinning and hair fall, but this is normal and will eventually regrow into healthier hair.
PRP therapy or platelet-rich plasma therapy
PRP therapy or platelet-rich plasma therapy is a three-step medical treatment for hair restoration. It is effective and hailed by many patients who have experienced the difference before and after the procedure. It is a type of therapy that triggers natural hair regrowth. The blood is drawn from your own and processed into a machine to extract platelets. The platelets are responsible for body healing and are responsible for blood clots. Since types of hair loss are the result of damaged hair follicles, the concentrated platelets can help heal and accelerate hair growth. As soon as the platelet extraction completes, it will be meticulously injected into your scalp. Once implanted, it can help increase your hair follicles’ blood supply that helps in the growth of your hair. It increases the thickness and overall healthy growth of your hair. It is not a sudden change since it uses your natural tissues and promotes the natural way of hair restoration. You will also need several sessions and maintenance to ensure you achieve optimal results.
Many people who experience hair loss, suffer depression. It affects their lifestyle, decreases their confidence, and lowers their self-esteem. Although there are available synthetic hair as a temporary solution, it still doesn’t resolve the condition. Others choose to embrace their situation, but it doesn’t mean they don’t want change. They decide to see the brighter side and move forward. Thankfully, there is a PRP therapy or platelet-rich plasma therapy that can fix and ease out the burden of having a bald hair, available at Bella Rose Medical Aesthetics.
