Hair Loss Overview in Durban

Hair loss is the condition in which a person loses more hair from his scalp than he gains. It can also be defined as the medical condition in which the rate of hair loss is greater than the rate of hair gain. Hair loss has become the most common problem in young people today. There are many factors on which hair loss depends, one of these factors is the genetic condition. If a person faces up to 100 strands of hair loss per day, it is considered normal. This is because this amount of hair loss is recoverable by the body itself. In the early stages, hair fall can be prevented with the help of certain medications. But in the cases of severe hair fall or permanent baldness, transplant is a better option. If you are searching for the leading clinic for hair loss treatment in Durban, Darling Buds Hair Transplantation Center will be the right place to take hair transplantation services.

Effects of Hair Loss

Severe hair loss leads to the major changes on the scalp of a person. This affects the appearance of that person. The problem of hair loss starts with the thinning of hair on the scalp. Hair thinning occurs when a larger amount of hair strands are fallen from the scalp. This makes the scalp visible through fewer hair strands. Furthermore, the length of the hair will decrease and the texture of the strands will become silky.

When the health of hair is not good, the person also faces split ends of hair. A person can get receding hairlines from he temples or in the crown position. Bald patches may arise anywhere on the scalp with no hair growth. These bald patches may expand to the surrounding areas of the scalp. Baldness has a greater effect on the self-esteem of a person.

Factors Affecting Hair Loss

There are many factors which are responsible for hair loss. Also, these factors vary from person to person. The persons suffering from a chronic health problem may also face the problem of hair loss. Chronic diseases are the diseases which last a very long time. In most of these cases, the hair on the scalp will be restored automatically when the person starts recovering from the chronic disease. In such cases, the hair loss can be stopped with the help of certain medications.

Improper nutrition and imbalanced lifestyle is another major factor which affects the health of the hair.

Hair transplantation is the permanent solution of baldness. If you are searching for the hair loss treatment for men and women, you can visit our clinic.

Hair Transplant to Restore Hair Growth

Hair transplant is the permanent solution to the problem of androgenetic alopecia. The hair follicles which are resistant to DTH (Dihydrotestosterone) hormone do not fall permanently. In the hair transplant surgery, these hair follicles are surgically transferred to the bald part of the person. There are two main procedures for hair transplantation, namely, FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). Out of these two methods of hair transplantation, the latter one is the minimally invasive procedure. The hair transplantation, nowadays, uses an advanced technology to give the best results. The cosmetic surgeons who have done specialization in this field, conduct the hair transplantation surgery by using their advanced skills and years of practise. They are intended to offer great hairlines to the patients of permanent hair loss. After a successful hair transplantation, the person will be able to hair growth after 3 months and the besr results will arise after 6 to 9 months of the hair transplantation surgery.

Bottomline

When the rate of hair fall exceeds the rate of hair gain, this condition is called hair fall. It is better to take a doctor’s advice in the early stages of hair fall. Ignoring the problem of thinning of hair will result in permanent hair loss. Today, the problem of hair loss has become common among young males. In some cases, the problem can be cured with the help of certain medications. But hair transplantation is the only permanent cure of the problem. Darling Buds hair Transplantation Center offers the best hair restoration services to the patients with the help of the advanced technologies and experienced staff. Our clinic is the best for hair loss treatment for men and women in Durban.

The normal cycle of hair growth lasts for 2 to 6 years. Each hair grows approximately 1 centimeter (less than half an inch) per month during this phase. About 90 percent of the hair on your scalp is growing at any one time. About 10 percent of the hair on your scalp, at any one time, is in a resting phase. After 2 to 3 months, the resting hair falls out and new hair starts to grow in its place.

It is normal to shed some hair each day as part of this cycle. However, some people may experience excessive (more than normal) hair loss. Hair loss of this type can affect men, women and children.

A number of things can cause excessive hair loss. For example, about 3 or 4 months after an illness or a major surgery, you may suddenly lose a large amount of hair. This hair loss is related to the stress of the illness and is temporary.

Hormonal problems may cause hair loss. If your thyroid gland is overactive or underactive, your hair may fall out. This hair loss usually can be helped by treatment thyroid disease. Hair loss may occur if male or female hormones, known as androgens and estrogens, are out of balance. Correcting the hormone imbalance may stop your hair loss.

Many women notice hair loss about 3 months after they’ve had a baby. This loss is also related to hormones. During pregnancy, high levels of certain hormones cause the body to keep hair that would normally fall out. When the hormones return to pre-pregnancy levels, that hair falls out and the normal cycle of growth and loss starts again.

Some medicines can cause hair loss. This type of hair loss improves when you stop taking the medicine. Medicines that can cause hair loss include blood thinners (also called anticoagulants), medicines used for gout, medicines used in chemotherapy to treat cancer, vitamin A (if too much is taken), birth control pills and antidepressants.

Certain infections can cause hair loss. Fungal infections of the scalp can cause hair loss in children. The infection is easily treated with antifungal medicines.

Finally, hair loss may occur as part of an underlying disease, such as lupus or diabetes. Since hair loss may be an early sign of a disease, it is important to find the cause so that it can be treated.

Yes. If you wear pigtails or cornrows or use tight hair rollers, the pull on your hair can cause a type of hair loss called traction alopecia (say: al-oh-pee-sha). If the pulling is stopped before scarring of the scalp develops, your hair will grow back normally. However, scarring can cause permanent hair loss. Hot oil hair treatments or chemicals used in permanents (also called “perms”) may cause inflammation (swelling) of the hair follicle, which can result in scarring and hair loss.

The term “common baldness” usually means male-pattern baldness, or permanent-pattern baldness. Male-pattern baldness is the most common cause of hair loss in men. Men who have this type of hair loss usually have inherited the trait. Men who start losing their hair at an early age tend to develop more extensive baldness. In male-pattern baldness, hair loss typically results in a receding hair line and baldness on the top of the head.

Women may develop female-pattern baldness. In this form of hair loss, the hair can become thin over the entire scalp.

Perhaps. Your doctor will probably ask you some questions about your diet, any medicines you’re taking, whether you’ve had a recent illness and how you take care of your hair. If you’re a woman, your doctor may ask questions about your menstrual cycle, pregnancies and menopause. Your doctor may want to do a physical exam to look for other causes of hair loss. Finally, blood tests or a biopsy (taking a small sample of cells to examine under a microscope) of your scalp may be needed. Return to top.

Depending on your type of hair loss, treatments are available. If a medicine is causing your hair loss, your doctor may be able to prescribe a different medicine. Recognizing and treating an infection may help stop the hair loss. Correcting a hormone imbalance may prevent further hair loss.

Medicines may also help slow or prevent the development of common baldness. One medicine, minoxidil (brand name: Rogaine), is available without a prescription. It is applied to the scalp. Both men and women can use it. Another medicine, finasteride (brand name: Propecia) is available with a prescription. It comes in pills and is only for men. It may take up to 6 months before you can tell if one of these medicines is working.

Hair Transplantation is the only method which will give you a natural, long-lasting economical result and is sure to raise your self-confidence levels to what they were before your hair started to fall.

Dr Tejinder Bhatti excels in this method of treatment. Other methods are weaving. Wig, hair patch, etc.

Meet Dr Tejinder Bhatti to assess what is the best solution for your hair loss.

To say that every person is a unique individual is somewhat trite, but it is a trite saying that is also true. We inherit genes from our parents that shape our physical selves and we live in social and cultural environments that influence the way we think and act. Yet, no matter how similar (or different) we may be in genetic and socio-cultural heritage, each of us is a one-time-only human being with a deeply-sensed feeling of individuality.

One of the consequences of our individuality is the way we see ourselves—our self-image, how we perceive ourselves and how we hope and strive to be perceived by other people. The “me” that I imagine myself to be, that I see in the mirror, and that I hope to present to others is greatly influenced by cosmetic features of my face and head. I style scalp hair to enhance my self-image and the “me” I present to others.

Hair loss can significantly disturb my self-image and make me be concerned about how I am perceived by others. Concern about hair loss may lead to a decision to consult a hair restoration specialist about medical or surgical hair restoration. Consultation with a hair restoration specialist may have been preceded by a self-help approach using an over-the-counter hair restoration medication.

When the “me” I perceive myself to be sits down with a hair restoration specialist to discuss hair loss and hair restoration, both of us should be aware that the basic issue is not hair loss but rather the consequences of hair loss to my self-image. What I want hair restoration to accomplish is restoration of a self-image that satisfies me and that I believe will present a satisfactory “me” to others.

What do I want the physician hair restoration specialist to accomplish? To arrive at that understanding with the physician, it is helpful if I can put into words what I perceive to be the negative effects of hair loss. This perception varies from person to person and is rarely just a concern about a bald spot or a receding hairline. It is most likely that a number of perceived negative effects are organized around a major concern about self-image—for example, loss of attractiveness, looking older than my years, embarrassment about “going bald”, loss of self-confidence.

When the hair restoration specialist understands my over-arching concerns about hair loss, the next step is to determine (1) what I hope hair restoration to accomplish, (2) what is the best approach to realizing my goals, and (3) reach agreement on the most effective approach to hair restoration, the likely outcome of hair restoration, the amount of time I will have to commit to the procedure, and the cost.

Similarly to helping my doctor understand how I believe hair loss affects my self-image, I need to work with the doctor to be sure we both understand what I mean when I use broadly descriptive terms such as “full head of hair”, “natural look”, “too thin”, “younger look”, etc. Such terms may be very meaningful to me in terms of self-image, but they are not helpful to a hair restoration specialist who must plan hair restoration to meet specific aesthetic goals such as hairline placement and hair density. Reaching common semantic understanding—getting on the same page, so to speak—can also be important if we have to agree on some compromises. For example, if I insist on a “full head of hair”, and the physician knows that I have an inadequate supply of donor hair to achieve that goal, we will need to work out an acceptable compromise that addresses my aesthetic concerns and is technically feasible.

It is helpful to remember that my concern regarding hair loss is really a concern about self-image. My concern about hair restoration is that my expectation for restoring self-image will be met. The physician’s concern is to understand my worries about hair loss and expectations for restoring self-image, and to successfully address them with the science and art of hair restoration.
