Hair grows all over the human body, except the palm and sole of feet. Hairs are made up of a protein known as keratin, which is produced by the hair follicles in the skin. It’s basically dead cells and the more keratin cells are produced, the old ones tend to shed or fall and new ones take the place.

Hair growth has certain stages & functions. The stage in which hair grows is growth phase aka Anagen phase, in which the hair follicles produce new keratin cells.

After Anagen Phase comes Catagen stage in this the new upcoming hairs cells get connected & attached to the existing hair shaft while follicles shrink and detaches from the dermal papilla, this stage lasts about 15 days.

Next is the telogen phase that’s the rest period, when the rest period remains for a longer period of time and doesn’t enter the Anagen phase, the hair loss begins to show up.

There are many types of alopecia, some of which mainly affect kids, some affect only women or the elderly, or are initiated by psychological conditions. Some are also common with other disorders, especially hormonal disorders, and eating disorders.

Inspecting the pattern of hair loss is the first step to find whether the hair loss is caused by hereditary reasons. Male pattern baldness, or androgenetic alopecia, is the most common hair loss stage that is observed in men and is basically the outcome of the hormone known as DHT (dihydrotestosterone); which is a byproduct of testosterone and it increases with aging.

The reason for the baldness can be numerous like:

  • Unhealthy lifestyle
  • Career Stress
  • Education Stress
  • Emotional Stress
  • Smoke & Drugs
  • Mobile & Radiations
  • No Physical exercise
  • Hormonal disorders
  • Nutritional Imbalance
  • Medications

However, if your things are inaccurate then you can try to be more punctual to your daily habits and you can even get better results for your hair loss. You can also follow the habits & guide which we have added for you.

Change your food habits: Include Vitamins B3, B5, B9, and E (found in orange, spinach, chicken, fish, broccoli and soya beans) , Zinc (wheat, dairy, oats and egg yolk) ,Magnesium (milk, tuna, banana, cashews) , Iron (fish, leafy greens, fortified cereals, and beans) in good amount

External nourishment:  Massage with oil and use mild & herbal shampoos.

Medicines: Taking medicines and applying formulated oils may help but these are not permanent solutions as they work till the time they are in use.

Although, If after following the above scenario activities the results are not much positive then I don’t think anything would work for you rather than having a surgery. However, It not that bad as we think about hair transplant surgery. You didn’t even know when your transplanted hairs grow like natural ones.

It is one of the proved solutions till date that will not disappoint you. This is considered the most effective, safe and permanent solution adopted by surgeons. In this surgically the hair follicles from the backside of the head which are not affected by the hormones are extracted and transplanted in the bald area. Micro-holes are done one by one and hair follicles are inserted into these holes.

If You already had make your mind for surgery then you need to find a good clinic for better results because the reputation of clinic and the experience of surgeon is also matters. However, at Hair Doctors, we also have our clinics located at many locations such as Ludhiana, Amritsar, Chandigarh, etc.
