It is a problem of several people. Hair loss is crucial to avoid, but a lot of people find that it’s difficult, this is a cure to assist.
Hair loss is a typical problem which is frequently experienced by both women and men and can be brought about by quite a few distinct things including poor diet plan and genetics. It is not cured with just a month or two into any treatment. It is not just a simple appearance problem.

Hair can start to fall out for a lot of reasons. It can be extremely frustrating and difficult, if you want to quit losing hair, to purchase plenty of different products which do not do the job. Beautiful and healthful hair enhances your personality.
Ruthless Hair Loss Treatment Strategies Exploited
The main cause of hair loss is called androgenetic alopecia. It is one of the most common problems experienced by men and women all over the world. It will probably halt the loss of hair in most of men, but the quantity of regrowth will be dependent on the person.
There are several types of hair loss and balding. While the mechanism of the phenomenon of hair loss and baldness is not fully understood, there is vast knowledge on the ability to treat the types of hair loss and baldness by medication or natural means.
We are dividing the alopecia types into treatable and non-treatable conditions and we shall hereby explain how one can evaluate the chances of successful treatment in the treatable conditions.
When evaluating the chances of improving the condition of the hair, the most important criteria is the condition of the hair follicles. As long as the hair follicles are alive, there is a chance to grow new hair. Otherwise, there is no basis for any treatment to succeed and the only options are cosmetic- wig, hair transplant etc.
Life period of the hair follicles may reach up to twenty-five years. The hair follicles grow hair in cycles of growth and fall. In the process of hair loss, each cycle of growth produces shorter, thinner hair and there is less pigment (color).
When the scalp has a bright plume, it indicates that the hair follicle is still alive but dormant. Given the appropriate specialist’s knowledge and therapy, the hair follicle can be stimulated to grow hair. However if the surface is completely smooth, it indicates that the hair follicle is no longer alive and there is zero chance to grow hair- except in some cases as explained below (Alopecia Areata, Totalis and Universalis).
The different types of hair loss and the chances of growth of new hair are hereby given.
Non Treatable conditions
The conditions of hair loss which have no chance of hair regrowth are: Alopecia from birth, Scarring Alopecia, Traction Alopecia and Lupus disease.
Alopecia from birth is a rare condition, where the infant is born without hair follicles.
In Scarring Alopecia the infected zone looks like a scar and the hair follicles are dead. The reasons of the phenomena are unknown. The chances of growing new hair are zero, but with proper treatment the expansion of the Scarring Alopecia can be stopped.
In Traction Alopecia the hair is pulled out of the scalp and the hair follicle becomes weak and dies.
In alopecia which is caused by Lupus disease, the skin is rough and pink and the chances of growth of hair is almost non existent.
The conditions of hair loss which has a chance to be treated successfully are: Male Pattern Alopecia, Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis.
Male Pattern Alopecia is common male baldness. It’s characteristics are loss of hair at the front and crown area first. In many cases, there is still at least hair plume, hair loss and baldness can be stopped by affecting the hair follicles.
In Alopecia Areata condition, typical round hair loss patches evolve rapidly. Sometimes the bald patches spread to full hair loss of the scalp (Alopecia Totalis) or even whole body areas (Alopecia Universalis). The phenomenon could harm men, women and small children. Conventional medicine assumes the Alopecia Areata condition is an autoimmune disease, though the exact mechanism of Alopecia Areata is not known nor fully understood.
In many cases Alopecia Areata is caused by psychological pressure: people who experienced trauma have sometimes lost entire hair within hours or days.
Evaluating Chances of Successful Treatment
As explained in the introduction, the condition of the hair follicles is the most important criteria for evaluating the chances of successful treatment. Existence of thin white hair is a visible sign for living hair follicles. The thin white hair can be noticed when examining the scalp from close distance, with good light conditions. Sometimes viewing the scalp from an angle against light source helps to see the thin white hair.
Naturally, when there is thin white hair on the alopecia area, it indicates that the hair follicles are weak but alive, so there is a basis to grow hair, given the proper treatment. But when the alopecia area is smooth, the evaluation depends on the alopecia type:
In male pattern alopecia condition, smooth scalp is a clear indication that the hair follicles are not alive and there is no chance to grow new hair. However in Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis the hair follicles sometimes remain alive even if the alopecia area is smooth and evaluating the condition of the hair follicles should take into consideration other important factors.
The factors which play important role in the condition of the hair follicles and hence the chances of success:
– Age of the patient: at younger age there are higher chances to recover
– Period with Alopeia Areata condition: if the condition is recent, the chances are higher. Among people who experienced Alopecia Areata for decades, the hair follicles are probably too weak.
– Alopecia Areata condition was due to a shock: In those cases, the chances of recovery are better.
– Use of violent and inappropriate treatment: Some treatments cause permanent damage to the hair follicles. In such cases, even if there is growth of hair, it is common that once the treatment is stopped the hair falls and the hair follicles remain weaker, which makes it harder to stimulate growth.
– Thin white hair: as previously explained, if there is thin white hair the chances of recovery increase.
– Use of wig: When a wig is applied, the scalp’s skin is not normally exposed to air and is not breathing (skin is not able to absorb oxygen). In cases of wig users, the chances of recovery are lower. If wig is attached by glue, chances are near zero.
It should be emphasized that these are general guidelines for treatment success chances, based on experience with a population of Alopecia Areata patients. A personal evaluation is required in order to accurately evaluate the success chances of a specific person.
Choosing the Right Treatment
There are natural or medication therapies which are intended to revive the hair roots. When considering medication treatment, it is advised to consult with a specialist dermatologist and inquire about possible side effects. The internet includes vast information about the side effects of conventional treatments. In case of natural treatments, it is advised to seek for a treatment which is certified by a recognized organization. The treatment should be certified for being safe for usage and without any side effects. In order to be certified for zero side effects, the treatment should contain only herbs and plants with the maximal safety degree – edible herbs- as defined by the U.S. CTFA list of plants.

That is the question that motivates Dr. Brett Bolton, a hair transplant surgeon in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Today’s ‘gold standard’ of hair transplantation is not high enough for Dr. Bolton who has specialized in hair restoration since 1997. In the late 90’s he was fortunate enough to enter the field of hair transplant surgery during a transitional time when technology was being shaped. Outdated techniques like the large chunky hair plugs, punch grafts and flap surgeries West Lafayette Indiana were on their way out and the defining new technique of follicular unit transplantation (FUT) was just cresting the horizon. Dr. Bolton’s vantage point at that time could not have been any better. He learned from the mistakes of other hair doctors as he repaired bad transplants, and he also gleaned valuable techniques from talented surgeons like the late Dr. Constantine Chambers who did wonders with old technology, especially in the crown area.
With FUT, doctors transplant small slit grafts which contain only one hair bundle. These grafts are harvested from a single strip of donor tissue and separated under a microscope. They contain a naturally occurring bundle of 1-4 hairs. The result is very natural-looking but Dr. Bolton would argue that there is not enough hair density to give patients a satisfying outcome with 1-4 hair grafts only.
In the early 2000’s, it became exceptionable for doctors to perform surgeries using anything other than FUT. However, Dr. Bolton had already developed a method of transplantation using a mixture of graft sizes that far outperformed the standard follicular unit transplantation. He was not willing to cast off a technique that was proving to be extremely successful in his practice despite pressure from peers. Instead, he refined and developed this approach and proudly applies Multi-Unit Hair Grafting , which he co-developed at PAI Medical Group in Nashville, Tennessee. By using a combination of micrografts (single hair grafts), follicular units and multiple follicular unit grafts, which is a slit graft containing 2 to 3 follicular units, Dr. Bolton gives patients 2-3 times the density compared to other doctors who use FUT only.
Some of Dr. Bolton’s peers suggest in error that multi-unit grafts are old style hair plugs. These new style slit grafts are slightly larger than standard follicular units. Separated under a microscope just like follicular units, these multi-unit grafts are not harvested with a punch biopsy instrument. This insures hardiness of the delicate hair follicles and surrounding tissue. They are never used in the frontal hairline and are strategically placed throughout the vertex and crown to make the most of density. This style of transplantation is so unique, Dr. Bolton cannot even charge by the graft because it simply doesn’t translate. Instead, he charges by hair volume. When compared to competitors, hair for hair, Dr. Bolton’s surgery is the best value in the industry.

Some Common Q & A’s
How Much It Will Cost To Go For A Hair Transplant In India?
This is YAHOO, it's a World Wide Web and many of us have not even bought anything or work in India.
London: Men should avoid having hair transplants until they are closer to the age of 30, a leading surgeon has warned.
Doctor Bessam Farjo told Newsbeat some clinics are not doing enough to warn under-30s about the long-term risks.
He said that while the publicity in celebrities like Wayne Rooney getting the procedure is making it more popular, it is not for everyone.
“When a celebrity comes out with it, you only hear the good things,” the BBC quoted him as saying.
“You don`t hear the cautions or the potential complications.”
He says that if you get surgery too young, it can look worse than it did in the first place.“If you have the surgery too early and you go bald, you don`t have enough hair to keep chasing the hair loss,” he said.
“You can end up with isolated patches of hair. You could end up with hairy temples and a bald forehead which isn`t pretty but is also hard to fix.”
Google hair transplants gone wrong. About 5,980,000 results. 12-11.
Google also: Wayne Rooney's hair appears to be thinning... just months after £30,000 transplant.

The effort has helped turn the company into a nationwide leader in the field of hair restoration, with annual sales of more than $100 million. The company spent about $200000 training Dr. Yates, who had no experience with hair transplants . . .
Who Is The Best Hair Transplant/Replacement Doctor In Chicago? Can Anybody Speak From Experience?
I cant speak from experience or I don't know of anyone personally but I did find this site on the web, and you could always call them and ask for the doctor's "stats" or references that he has in his line of work. And maybe the consultation is free and you might get a good or bad vibe from that visit. I would ask tons of questions ....after all you are paying for this .....it isnt free...
I wish you luck ~~

Today, hair transplantation is a very refined outpatient procedure that can produce full and natural looking results, even after only one hair transplant session. When performed correctly, not even a hair stylist will detect that a person has had a hair transplant. However, it is critical that the hair transplant procedure be performed correctly to achieve such natural results. To do so requires a hair restoration clinic that can perform both Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) at the highest levels of skill, experience, and dedication. Manzanares Hair Restoration Center is in the forefront of this surgical hair restoration.
What is hair transplant exactly?
Hair transplantation is an artistic redistribution system that takes donor dominant hair follicles donor areas such as the chest or from the very back of the head (which are genetically resistant to hair loss) and artfully relocate them into thinning or balding areas. With current microsurgical technologies, this results in a very natural appearance. Basically, we take hair from where you have more than you need and put it where you need it more. The hair that is now growing will be permanent for the rest of the patient's life. Those newly transplanted hairs need no more care than ordinary washing, styling and trimming as you have always doing in your hair. The end result is your own natural hair growing the way nature created hair to look, feel and grow. More at http://www.manzanareshairrestoration.com
How effective is hair transplantation?
Hair transplantation is a surgical office procedure for the treatment of hair loss. This is accomplished by actually transferring grafts or small sections of hair bearing skin from the back of his scalp to bold areas on the top of the head. Follicular hair units are usually used. This technique is very effective in most types of hair loss, including male and female pattern loss. It is also effective when concealing scar injury and complications from disease. It is especially effective in concealing the scars from facial plastic surgical procedures (face lifts, brow lifts, etc.). Even eyebrows and eyelashes can be reconstructed with excellent cosmetic appearance. Women in particular are excellent candidates, as their hair loss tends to be diffuse and can afford them full coverage of the area while undergoing healing. Best of all, your results are permanent. More at http://www.manzanareshairrestoration.com
A typical hair transplant procedure has at least seven steps:
2. Blood Tests
4. Extraction of donor hair
5. Division of donor hair into follicular units
6. Implanting of donor hair
7. Post operative care
and it's not painful....
Are there any risks with hair transplant surgery?
There are practically no risks involved in hair transplant surgery. Occurrences of infection after the procedure are rare. In the few cases where infection does occur, it is often due to the patient’s failure to fully follow post-operative instructions. When infection occurs, it is easily treatable with antibiotics which can be prescribed by the physician. More at http://www.manzanareshairrestoration.com
It maybe costs $6000 total... For the whole head I think....
Typically hair transplants are priced on a per graft basis ranging from as low as $2 per graft to as high as $8. Today's state of the art hair transplantation uses grafts, which contain naturally occurring "follicular units" that have between 1 to 4 hairs per follicular unit. Large surgical sessions of 2,000 or more grafts are now being done by leading hair transplant clinics with very natural results.
But the quality of patient results varies widely from poor to outstanding. Price is important. But since the results for good or bad will last a life time, quality is the most important consideration.
Research any hair transplant surgeon that you may be considering by visiting discussion forums to view actual results from real patients.
Hope this helped!! (:
How Do I Find A &Quot;Hair Transplant&Quot; Surgeon In Delhi And Chandigarh? Google Search Is Confusing.?
You Google &Quot;Hair Transplant Surgeon&Quot; Or &Quot;Cost Of Hair Transplant&Quot; And Your Confusion Starts. I Am Sure Most Of The Search Results Are Of Those Doctors Who Infrequently Practice Hair Transplant Surgery. Then How Am I To Know?
Yes, it is most confusing. You need to take a recommendation from a patient.
But the best way is to go to a website I accidentally came across (hidden on page 9 of google search). It belongs to the National Registry for Hair Transplantation.
You can search for the best hair transplant surgeons on the page-
Please note that the Founder Members are iconic figures of hair transplantation in India and the best.
The association website has a flaw. It does not list plastic surgeons, skin specialists, simple MBBS doctors separately to make it easier for us. You will have to do that research yourself.
However, it really takes away your headache.
For Delhi or Chandigarh also they have entries.
The very best to you.
Do You Recommend &Quot;Hair Implants?&Quot;?
Is It Really Permanent? I'M Really Thinking About Getting A Hair Implant. I Have Super Thin Hair For A Woman. I'M Reallllyyyyyy Embarrassed To Put My Hair Down.
Is your hair naturally thin or are you loosing hair and that's why it's becoming thin. If you have naturally thin hair then I'm not sure how implants will help make it thicker. You can take biotin because i heard that temporarily thickens your hair.

Why Is My Hair Falling Off?
I Have Anemia...
Can Some One Tell Me, Please......
Hair loss in women is a suprisingly common, but no less distressing, occurence.
Excessive loss (over 50 to 100 hairs a day) is usual due to
Androgenetic alopecia (female pattern hair loss)
Alopecia areata (an autoimmune disease)
The commonest hair loss in women is the first condition, telogen effluvium, in which there is a widely spread out, shedding of hairs around the scalp and elsewhere on the body. Within this category, the causes are usually:
rapid weight loss/crash diets
You mention anemia, but not what kind. I will presume its the commonest - Iron deficiency anemia - caused by insufficient dietary intake or absorption of iron to replace losses.
Recent studies have indicated that iron has a much closer link to hair loss than most doctors realise. In both male and female hair loss, having too little iron in the blood makes it worse. It's a controversial issue as not every single study shows a link between iron deficiency and hair loss.
In my opinion, from limited information, this would be the first avenue to pursue. Please do so under a doctor's supervision. You can get iron overload, which can be dangerous.
For your info, iron-rich foods are tofu, lentils, beans, oysters, spinach, prunes, raisins, lean beef. Also foods that are rich in vitamin C (citrus and tomato) are known to increase iron absorption.
Note: What most doctors consider to be a normal amount of iron stored in the body is, I believe, too low. The "normal" range may need to be boosted by 2 or even 3 times to help replenish hair. You may wish to do further research on this, if going down this route - and quiz your doctor on it.
The key to hair loss is to find out what the UNDERLYING REASON is and to then evaluate your options in dealing with it. May I suggest you go to your doctor or specialist anyway to diagnose your condition.
The good news is that a large percent of women's hair loss is completely reversible.
Does Lifting Weights Cause/Speed Up Hair Loss?
I Was Reading About Lifting Weights And Saw Several Posts Saying Lifting Weights Can Cause Hair Loss Because In Order To Restore Muscle Tissure Your Body Produces Testosterone And Then That Is Converted To Dht. Is This True? Any Scientific Documentation? Thanks.
There has been scientific evidence linking weight lifting to hair loss due to increased testosterone levels. Hair loss is also accelerated by the use of steroids or any other muscle-enhancing supplement. While many men’s follicles are not genetically programmed to miniaturize and bald in response to their male hormones, around half do carry the genetic predisposition to lose their hair because of androgens. It is known that the main driver of male pattern hair loss, if you have the genetic make-up, is dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is 5 times more androgenic than testosterone and has been implicated in two scourges of being male, prostate enlargement and hair loss. When it comes to your hair, any steroidal supplement or medication that falls within the androgen pathway has the potential to be converted into DHT and should be avoided.
However, to precisely pinpoint the source of the hair loss, you should consult a medical professional, like those at Bosley Medical. These physicians are hair loss experts who can diagnose the specific cause of your case & recommend appropriate treatment options. The consults at Bosley Medical are conducted free of charge so at the very least you receive the information you need to move forward in addressing your problem.
