Thinning hair can be caused by various factors, including genetics, hormonal changes, nutritional deficiencies, stress, and more.
Hair thinning in some cases is a symptom of androgenetic alopecia and there are several habits you can take to slow down the process and promote hair growth. Still, first, you should know about the technique that helps to treat thinning hair.
Procedure for hair recovery
Treating the problem of thinning hair may seem challenging when you are unfamiliar with the subject, but in reality, one of the most effective procedures is hair grafting.
The hair graft process, also known as hair transplantation, involves taking hair from one area of the scalp (called the donor area) and transplanting it to an area with thinning or no hair (recipient area). The procedure is usually done under local anesthesia and can take a few hours.
During the procedure, hair follicles are extracted from the donor area, this follicular unit extraction (FUE) involves extracting individual follicular units directly from the scalp. Once the follicles are harvested, they are carefully placed into tiny incisions made in the recipient area of the scalp. The surgeon ensures the transplanted hair is aligned with the natural hair growth pattern for a more natural appearance.
Recommendations to reduce thinning hair
Having good habits is essential for the health of your hair and to reduce thinning hair. Whether or not you get a hair implant, follow our recommendations below to take care of your scalp.
Maintain a balanced diet
Ensure your diet includes a variety of nutrient-rich foods like fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats to stimulate hair growth cycle. Hair-friendly nutrients include vitamins A, C, D, E, biotin, iron, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids.
Chronic stress can contribute to hair loss. Find healthy ways to manage stress, such as regular exercise, meditation, deep breathing, or engaging in activities you enjoy.
Keep away from heat or chemical products
Avoid styling techniques that may damage your hair, such as excessive heat from hairdryers, straighteners, or curling irons. Opt for gentle styling methods and avoid dyes or perms because can weaken hair and cause hair loss.
Avoid tight hairstyles
Avoid tight hairstyles like ponytails, braids, or buns that pull on your hair, as this can lead to breakage and hair loss. Opt for looser styles and avoid using hair accessories that can cause tension.
