Hair loss is a problem that affects men and women and can occur at any age. There are numerous causes of hair loss; hormonal imbalances, aging and genetics are just a few. Dietary insufficiencies, side effects from medication and hair styling products are additional culprits. What hair loss treatment methods work best will often depend on the original cause.

Hair loss from an unhealthy diet, over styling and hormonal issues can often be neutralized, and occasionally reversed, by using the right hair and scalp products and improving the diet. Foods like lentils and brown rice increase biotin, reducing hair breakage and protecting the hair from becoming too dry. Supplements and foods that include Vitamins A and E are also a necessity.

Scalp problems that lead to hair loss include fungal infections like ringworm and eczema or psoriasis. Even though eczema and psoriasis do not actually cause the hair to fall out, the constant scratching of the scalp will increase the rate that hair is shed and can lead to thin patches. Once the medical issue is under control, help is available. Some of the best hair loss treatment in Singapore begins with a complete cleansing of the scalp to remove excess sebum and dead skin cells. This opens the pores to enable the hair to regrow. Scalp massages help to improve circulation and are another common technique.

Hair that does not fill back in after correcting the diet and improving scalp health will need additional encouragement. Salon treatments, beyond massage, that increase scalp circulation include treatments like O2 therapy. This procedure uses a high pressure jet to introduce oxygen into the follicles. High frequency therapy controls scalp pH level and eliminates dead skin cells that may be preventing regrowth. Additional, more complex treatments are also available.

 

 

  • Hair bondingis a popular method that attaches hair strands directly to the existing hair. This thickens the hair and can fill in small bare patches. The hair can be brushed, washed and styled, and swimming or being caught in the rain will not damage the bonded hair.
  • Laser Therapyis another option. Low level laser therapy (LLLT), or red light therapy, is a safe and effective, clinically proven method that may help encourage tissue repair and help hair to regrow. This method is beneficial for those who suffer with diseases like alopecia that can leave large areas of the scalp bare and make bonding impossible.

Hair transplants may be the only viable option for some people. With this process, hair is taken from an area of the head where it is the thickest and the pieces are transplanted to bare areas of the scalp. It does involve the removal of the follicles and surrounding tissue to work. It can be done individually or in strips. This method does require recovery time and care has to be taken to prevent any infection while the scalp heals.

It is important to realize that even the best hair loss treatment in Singapore may fail for some. In many instances it may provide assistance, but not return the hair to the level of fullness it once had. Health issues and genetic baldness are difficult to overcome and, in the case of health issues, can consistently reoccur.
