Your Guide to Reducing Hair Fall and ideal Hair Regime

Greasy, untidy, falling hair are things that people lose sleep over. In today’s time, it is necessary to care for your hair & nurture them if you want them to look great. This is an ideal guide for your hair regime and tips to stop hair fall, from Advanced Hair Studio, which is phenomenally going to change the way your hair looks.

1. Brushing your hair

So, let’s start with the basics. Brushing or combing has been perceived as a technique of styling your hair and some people think it causes hair fall. But, it isn’t exactly true. Your scalp requires good blood circulation to promote healthy hair strands. Brushing your hair regularly ensures proper blood circulation in the scalp, along with transportation of oxygen & nutrients in the hair. It is advisable to brush twice in a day. Brushing also helps in reducing hair fall.

2. Argh! Blow Drying Hair:

Using a blow dryer post-shower is widely practiced among women. However, they take no notice of the ill effects of using it on their hair. The excessive amount of heat a blow dryer produces when in contact with your hair can easily make them dry, brittle or damaged and also cause hair fall. So, you need to be over-cautious about the frequency of using your blow dryer.

3. Oil – Bring it On:

An important thing to include in your hair regime is a good organic oil or preferably a blend of different organic oils in combination with some powerful essential oils. Oiling hair is a great way to keep them nourished & healthy. Essential oils such as Tea tree, Rosemary, Lavender are considered effective for hair growth & hair strength. They also help in fighting hair fall.

4. Deep Condition your Hair:

Even if you condition your hair regularly, deep conditioning has its own perks. Deep conditioning can be done using your regular conditioner, however, visiting a good salon for a leave-in conditioning treatment will give your hair that extra oomph that you have been desiring for long. This process makes your hair smooth and shiny. This too helps with reducing hair fall.

5. Pick your Shampoo wisely:

Before plunging on that large dollop of your shampoo, you must be aware of the constituents of it. There are certain compounds, such as Sulfates, which harm the roots & quality of hair while stripping the essential oils from the scalp and causing hair fall. Therefore, it is advisable to check the labels on the back of shampoos prior to getting to purchasing them.

Hair Regrowth For Men: Before And After Pictures You Won’t Believe Are Real

Hair regrowth for men that simply have to be seen to be believed!

If there’s one thing that each and every single man on the planet has in common, it’s the undeniable fear of losing his hair. Yes, going bald is right up there with the fear of public speaking, spiders, homicidal clowns and flying in planes – which is to say, losing one’s hair is one of the more common fears among earth’s general population. The good news is that hair regrowth is not impossible. Hair regrowth for men needn’t be a difficult thing in today’s world, especially as the technologies on offer are readily available.

While almost 99% of men lose their hair due to genetic reasons, there are a small percentage that suffer hair loss due to other factors: lack of the correct nutrients and minerals as a result of bad diets, insufficient sleep, stress, and excessive smoking and alcohol intake. If you are experiencing hair loss, you needn’t worry. There are a variety of hair regrowth treatments out there that are able to give your scalp a new lease on life.

Whether you’ve started to notice a suspiciously thinning hairline or you’ve invested in a brand new panama hat (they’re so in this season) to mask your unsightly and rapidly expanding bald spot, there’s a fair chance you’ve dabbled in one of the many “miracle” hair regrowth methods or cures available to you.

Know this: while there are plenty of hair regrowth options out there developed specifically to fight hair loss, it’s hard to tell which methods to take seriously and which to flush down the drain with the last vestiges of your once thriving coiffure. Check out these hair regrowth before and after pictures below for some inspiration.

Can Dandruff Cause Hair Loss In Men?

Can dandruff cause hair loss in men?

Dandruff and hair loss often occur simultaneously, so it makes sense that men who suffer from both wonder whether these two conditions are related or whether one causes the other. One of the questions we get asked a lot is does dandruff cause hair loss in men? The link is overlooked and often the information is misleading. The team at Advanced Hair Studio UAE is often required to provide clarity on the matter, so we decided to put together a handy reference for our readers.

Can Dandruff Cause Hair Loss In Men

Dandruff & hair loss in men

First off, let’s look at a proper medical definition of dandruff. Dandruff, according to Medi-Lexicon, is “the presence, in varying amounts, of white or grey scales in the hair of the scalp, due to excessive or normal branny exfoliation of the epidermis.” As such, we can surmise that dandruff is a condition associated with the scalp, rather than the hair itself. So while hair loss and dandruff often occur concurrently, dandruff does not cause hair loss.

However, quite interestingly, the way in which many men choose to treat their hair loss actually has the potential to cause dandruff, which is why it is often assumed that the scalp condition contributed to hair thinning.

The casual link between hair loss treatment & dandruff

In the many years we have been treating hair loss in men and women from around the globe, we have had the opportunity to learn a lot about lifestyle choices and how it can contribute to hair loss and unwanted scalp conditions. Here are a few causal links that we have established between hair thinning and dandruff throughout the years:

    • To wash or not to wash: When men first notice hair fall they normally do so in the shower, and there is nothing quite as disheartening as watching your prized tresses making their way down the drain. This often leads to what many men assume is a practical solution – stop washing your hair so much. While this notion makes sense at first glance, it is actually not a great idea at all. While a veto on hair washing might safeguard you from actually seeing the amount of hair you lose in one go, it will continue to happen. The one thing it will do, however, is make you more susceptible to dandruff if you already have a genetic propensity to suffer from dry scalp conditions. Individuals who suffer from dandruff should actually wash their hair once a day to ensure that their scalp is cleansed of any sebum or residue that could further irritate and inflame the dermis.
    • Hair loss medications can irritate the scalp: Certain prescription hair loss medications contain ingredients like alcohol that can dry out the scalp and eventually lead to flaking. It is recommended that you speak to one of our trained hair loss experts if you suspect that any medication you have previously been prescribed may be impacting on the health of your scalp or skin in general. They may be able to recommend a better course of action.
    • Untreated dandruff can lead to manual hair loss: Untreated dandruff leads to an itchy, swollen, uncomfortable scalp which causes many sufferers to scratch incessantly, which could potentially result in hair loss as they unwittingly damage their hair follicles. Dandruff sufferers also tend to wear hats in order to avoid embarrassment. Read our recent article on the causal link between hat and hair loss here. The short of the long is that prolonged and sustained hat wearing has the potential to contribute to hair loss due to a restriction of blood flow and nutrients to the scalp, as well as sweat and sebum build-up associated with exposure to unwashed fabrics.

Is Trichotillomania a reason of your hair loss?

You might be having the urge to constantly pull your hair. You may even be ashamed of it but you cannot control it. The reason you are doing so is because you may have Trichotillomania. Trichotillomania is an impulse disorder in which a person is feeling a constant urge, which one may not be able to resist, to pull their hair. Impulse control disorders are conditions in which you have strong, uncontrollable urges to take part in self-destructive behavior. Some examples of impulse control disorders are Pyromania and Kleptomania. Pyromania is the urge to set fires and Kleptomania is the urge to steal. The real reason behind Trichotillomania is not been understood or found, however researchers believe that it is caused due to chemical imbalances in the brain. Trichotillomania may also be a genetic condition because it runs in families.

Symptoms of Trichotillomania

Everyone doesn’t have the same symptoms of Trichotillomania. Some pull their hair strand by strand while others may pull large clumps of it. Some people may do this consciously and are getting a good feeling while pulling their hair off, while some may be pulling their hair unconsciously without even realizing it. After pulling the strand some may inspect it or even swallow it. The symptoms usually are:-

  • pulling hair causing hair loss in patches
  • satisfactory feeling when pulling the hair
  • shame and even denying what they are doing
  • experiencing relief when the hair is pulled
  • playing with pulled hair
  • rubbing the pulled hair on lips

How common is Trichotillomania?

Trichotillomania is a pretty rare condition in which only about 1 percent of the population may have it. This condition is usually found in females outnumbering males in a ratio of 3 to 1. There is a problem in finding the frequency of the people who have Trichotillomania. This is because people tend to deny that they have the disorder and do not seek help from professionals. Trichotillomania usually begins around the age of 11 to 13 however, there is a possibility that children of age 1 to 2 also have Trichotillomania and pull their hair.

Does A Buzz Cut Impact The Normal Hair Growth Cycle

Can particular types of hair cuts affect the normal hair growth cycle?

At Advanced Hair Studio UAE, we receive a lot of queries regarding hairstyles and whether it impacts on the normal hair growth cycle. Recently a reader wanted to know whether his preference for buzz cuts could adversely affect hair regrowth down the line, so we decided to share our insights on the matter.

Does A Buzz Cut Impact The Normal Hair Growth Cycle

Buzz cuts & hair loss

We are very happy to report that buzz cuts do not cause hair loss or hair thinning. The only relationship between buzz cuts and hair loss that we could find is that gentlemen who suffer from male pattern baldness often prefer to shave their heads rather than opting for less slightly solutions like a comb-over hairstyle. Happily, there is no causal relationship between the two beyond the notion of personal preference.

In fact, you are more favorite impede hair regrowth or contribute to hair loss by wearing your favourite cap day in and day out. We recently published an article that discussed the notion of continual hat wearing and how it impacts on hair loss, which you can read here. The gist of it is that blood flow restriction and exposure to excess sebum and sweat could negatively impact on the health of your scalp and therefore deter natural hair regeneration.

What is the normal hair growth cycle?

While we are on the topic, here is a quite explanation of the four stages of the normal hair growth cycle:

1. Anagen (the growing phase): The anagen or growing phase will normally last between two to seven years and determines the length of an individual’s hair.
2. Catagen (the regression phase): The catagen or regression phase will normally last approximately ten days. During this phase the hair follicle shrinks and detaches from the dermal papilla.
3. Exogen (the shedding phase): The exogen or shedding phase refers to the period between the natural death of a resting hair and when it detaches from the follicle. During this phase the hair naturally loosens and falls.
4. Telogen (the resting phase): The telogen or resting phase lasts approximately three months and around 20% of your hair is in this stage at any given time.

It is important to note that our follicles are in a constant state of flux, which means that not all of your hair will be in the same growth phase at once. While some are growing or regressing, others are shedding or resting. There is not a lot you can do to prolong the growth stage or shorten the shedding phase, except adhering to a healthy lifestyle that will promote your body’s ability to grow strong and healthy hair. Look out for our article on daily lifestyle habits that keep your hair healthy for helpful advice on giving your body a helping hand.

Hair styles that do impact the normal hair growth cycle

While a buzz cut might not impact on the normal hair growth cycle, there are hairstyles that contribute to something called traction alopecia. In short – certain hairstyles pull on the roots of the hair, slowly killing it over time. These hairstyles include tight buns, cornrows, dreadlocks, weaves, hair extensions and chemically relaxed styles. Buzz cuts do not contribute to traction alopecia.

So what can you do when you notice hair loss?

At Advanced Hair Studio UAE, we offer a range of hair loss solutions, including the extremely effective Strand-by-Strand Blitz® treatment. This breakthrough procedure is the result of 45 years of research at the hands of the world’s foremost plastic surgeons, tricologists, stylists, and hair loss experts and features a singular combination of clinical and cosmetic elements to restore your crowning glory to its previous lush state.

Telogen Effluvium – a common form of hair loss

Hair on a person’s scalp always undergoes three phases: 1. Anagen phase 2. Catagen phase 3. Telogen phase Anagen is termed as the growing phase for hair. At any given time, at least 85% of a person’s hairs are actively growing. Usually a hair is in anagen phase for about 4 years. Then catagen phase cause the end of the anagen phase and marks the beginning of the telogen phase. So catagen phase is the transition period. The hair in telogen phase are resting and eventually in 3-4 months fall out allowing new hair to grow. So, an average person loses about 100 hair a day. Telogen effluvium is triggered by:

telogen-effluvium-a-common-form-of-hair-loss

  • Weight loss
  • Surgery
  • Change in diet
  • Hormonal changes
  • Iron deficiency
  • Hypothyroidism or Hyperthyroidism
  • Fever or infection
  • Physical or mental trauma

diet

Telogen Effluvium is a common form of hair loss in men as well as women. When a person experiences shock or has a mental trauma, more hair (about 35%) stop growing and go into the resting phase. This results in the gradual thinning of the hair. So, if a person is experiencing Telogen Effluvium then the person will lose about 350 hair per day instead of 100. Because the hair takes 3-4 months to shed, most of us will not realize that Telogen Effluvium is triggered until after 3-4 months of the actual incident. You may be scared of losing most of such hair in a short amount of time, but this condition is usually temporary. Each hair that falls off is replaced by a new hair so you may not face the problem of baldness.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

The good part is that mostly people will not notice that you have Telogen Effluvium. This is because the hair does not fall of from a particular part of the scalp but few from every part. This does not make patches of hair loss but makes your hair less dense. So, if you have large patches of bald spots then you probably do not have Telogen Effluvium. The ideal way to understand if you are not suffering from this kind of hair loss condition you may choose to consult a professional set of team-members at Advanced Hair Studio UAE to help you understand the actual situation. Only post such diagnosis can the appropriate solution be suggested and taken forward.
