4 Best Hair Loss Fixes

Hair loss can happen to anyone. A lot of men and women experience hair loss in the Palo Alto area everyday. If you’ve noticed a bald spot you’re constantly trying to cover up or a thinning hairline, you’ve probably tried one or two products to help with the hair loss. With so many products available, it’s hard to determine which works best.

Altering your diet, using a special shampoo, a hair transplant surgery in Palo Alto, and laser light therapy are all ways you can try to stop the natural cycle of losing your hair. These ways don’t guarantee results as each head of hair is different. They each have their benefits and their own way to help slow the hair loss process down.

1. Nutrition

Changing your diet is not going to bring your hair back, but it will change the consistency of your hair. Eating foods with little to know nutrients will weaken hair strains and are more prone to breakage. If you switch to eating food with lots of protein and healthy fats, your hair will have a fuller look. Your hair can also appear shinier.

If you aren’t getting enough vitamin B, your body can prevent hair cells from forming, which means your hair won’t grow. Vitamin B can be found in protein-enriched foods like eggs, spinach, fish, chicken, and pork. Again, it’s worth mentioning that changing your diet will not magically grow you a full head of hair. It will however set you on a healthier path and your hair will naturally follow suit.

2. Shampoo

Despite numerous brands claiming their product will fully improve hair loss, there’s no shampoo that will actually stop hair loss from happening. The most a hair care product can do is fight thinning hair and improve the look of your scalp. This may help if you do have a small bald spot, as these shampoos will help with hair thickness.

Finding a shampoo that can better nourish your hair will feed your hair on the outside, while changing your diet will help with the inside. Products made with natural products like rosemary, mint, tea tree and other natural herbs tend to work best. Natural ingredients boost blood circulation to your scalp and improve hair follicles. For even better results, look for a shampoo without sulphate or parabens.

3. Laser Light Therapy

Laser light therapy does not cure baldness. If anything, this procedure helps you keep the hair you have now from falling out. Laser light therapy will not grow new hair. Using laser light treatments take a lot of time and dedication. To help keep the hair you have, you have to use most products for around 15 minutes a day, three times a day, indefinitely to receive even minor results.

The positive is that for the most part laser light treatments do not have any major side effects. It will not leave scars like a hair replacement surgery will, but it will take a lot of work to maintain.

4. Hair Replacement Surgery

Hair replacement surgery seems to be the best option for replacing lost hair. A robotic hair transplant in Palo Alto is not a guarantee that the hair will have any result, but depending on your hair type, it may be the best option available to you.

There are two main options available when thinking of undergoing a hair transplant in Palo Alto: the strip method and the follicular unit extraction treatment. The strip method is where a doctor will remove a strip of hair from the back of your head. They will then dissect each hair graft under a microscope. After determining which grafts will show the best results, they use tiny incisions to plant the grafts onto balding areas of your scalp. This can be a problem for men who have shorter hair as it leaves scars. It also takes around 10 days for this method to heal.

The follicular unit extraction method is the scarless hair transplant method. In this treatment grafts are taken one at a time with small punches. This treatment allows your head to heal easily and you will still be able to keep your hair short. If you’ve gone so bald there’s not enough hair on your head for the extraction, doctors can take from the body hair on your chest, stomach, and back. This method usually takes around three to five days to heal.

Hair loss is a natural part of the life cycle. Don’t get too down if you’re experiencing this normal process. There are various treatments you can use to try to help. It’s important to remember that each person is different and will react to each hair loss solution differently. Adding healthier, protein-enriched foods to your diet, switching to a natural shampoo, committing to laser light therapy, and going for a hair replacement surgery are all measures to take at attempting to slow the hair loss process.

These ways can all vary in results depending on the type of hair, how much hair you’ve lost, and many other health related factors. It’s all about determining which hair loss solution is the right fit for you.
