What is Non-Surgical Hair Grafting

Men and women everywhere suffer from hair loss, whether it’s stemmed from genetics or medical reasons. However, the challenge is not getting the hair back; its choosing which method of hair replacement will work best for you!  There are multiple surgical and nonsurgical procedures that may restore your hair, but this week we are discussing the option of Non-Surgical Hair Grafting.
First, let’s clarify the differences between surgical and non-surgical. Surgical hair grafting is a process where hair is taken from a fuller area of your scalp and implanted into areas of hair loss. Non-surgical grafting achieves the precise results of this surgery, but delivers them quickly, affordably, and painlessly.
Non-Surgical Hair Grafting is one of the latest technologies for replacing lost hair. It’s 100% real human hair and can be used in this non-invasive form of a hair implant. If hair restoration surgery is an option for you, be sure to consider the non-surgical option. You might find that it’s the best of both worlds.

Is Your Diet Affecting Your Hair Growth?

We all know a well-balanced diet can lead to better health, but who knew it could lead to healthier hair. A well- balanced diet can help improve the look and feel of your hair. That’s right! Eating protein, Iron and other essential nutrients may help your hair go from dry damaged hair to shiny luxurious hair.

Protein is the most important nutrient when it comes to healthy hair. Think about it, your hair is mostly made up of protein. So it makes sense that it needs protein to grow properly. Your hair has different stages of growth. Ninety percent of the time the hair is in the growing stage and then it enters a resting phase that leads to the shedding stage. If you are not eating enough protein your hair may not grow back after it sheds. It’s like asking your body to run a marathon with no water; it’s not going to end well.

Does Smoking Cause Hair Loss?

If you’re like most people, you may be looking at your hairline or scalp and attempting to self diagnose your hair loss. What most people don’t realize is that a healthy lifestyle may significantly contribute to the overall health of your body, and that includes your hair.  With all the research over the past few decades, everyone is aware that smoking leads to countless systematic problems with your health so why would your hair be included in this?
The truth is smoking is probably the worst habit anyone could have. If you smoke, you are damaging nearly every organ in your body including your hair. That’s right, smoking not only causes cancer, but it may also cause hair loss too. Smoking may cause hair loss because it reduces the circulation to the extremities, it can cause pollutants in the blood, which affect the liver. And it can also cause minor clogging of the scalp’s pores.

What is Scarring Alopecia?

Nearly 3% of hair loss patients are diagnosed with scarring alopecia. But what is it? Scarring alopecia is also known as cicatricial alopecia. Although each diagnosis in specific categories are rare, some examples of the hair loss disorders are follicular degeneration syndrome, dissecting cellulitis, lichen planopilaris and many more.  However, no matter what type of scarring alopecia is diagnosed, the most common factor of the disorder is a potentially permanent and irreversible destruction of the hair follicles.
