Hair Care And Treatment
Caring for your hair
Your hair is one of the first things that others notice about you. The shape and structure of your hair depend on your race. For instance, African hair is typically flat with tight curls. Asian hair is typically round and thick. Caucasian hair may be fine and straight or thick and wavy. Natural oils from hair glands also affect the look and feel of your hair. Basic hair care involves a healthy lifestyle and proper care. Wash oily hair regularly and limit how much you touch your hair. For dry hair, keep blow-drying time short and avoid overstyling, which can lead to dryness and breakage. Protecting your hair from wind, sun, and chlorine in water also will help to keep it from drying out and breaking.
If you color or relax your hair, carefully read the product label. Hair dyes and relaxers can harm both your skin and hair. Talk with your doctor if your skin or scalp swells or gets itchy after using any hair product. Even natural products, such as henna dye, can cause an allergic reaction.

Hair loss occurs in more than 60% of men and in 10% of women.Hair loss in men almost is due to male pattern hair loss that is inherited and requires linking of DHT (formed from testosterone by 5 alpha reductase)to susceptible hair follicles that causes miniaturization of hair. In women most hair loss is genetic although they have an increased incidence of hair loss due to hormonal imbalance, trichotillomania, telogen effluvium.
It’s normal to shed about 100 hairs each day as old hairs are replaced by new ones. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease that causes patchy hair loss on the scalp, face, or other areas of your body.
Hair loss and baldness is a progressive phenomenon that can be disturbing and causing loss in confidence in indiviuals so various treatments are available suiting the requirment of an indivisual. The only permanent solution amongst all is hair transplant which has two techniques – FUE & FUT.
In FUE individual follicular units are harvested from donor area (scalp, body) with the help of punch (diameter 0.7-1 mm). The grafts are processed and implanted in recipient areas (scalp / eyebrows / beard / moustache).
In FUT strip of skin is excised from donor area and follicles are harvested and processed before implantation. Donor area is closed by stitches that can leave scar.
Hair transplant is the treatment of choice for most patients. Modern hair transplant techniques can create virtually undetectable restoration.
Transplanted hair follicles appear to grow in the immediate postoperative period but they enter telogen phase and shed in a month. Hair regrowth takes 4 months and growth stabilizes at 1 year. Graft survival is over 95% in experienced hands in ADHT clinic.
Few advanced treatments for hair loss and baldness are are PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), mesotherapy, microneedling, LLLT hair therapy, oral supplements
Human blood contains four components: RBC, WBC, Platelets, Plasma. Platelets are responsible to stop bleeding by forming a clot.
