Treatments for & hair fall

Medical therapy

There are many problems associated with hair. Some of the issues and their medical treatments are mentioned in the list below:

Grey Hair: The grey colour in the head is one of the most visible signs of aging. Obviously, several studies have been conducted for finding an appropriate cure for grey hair. All the treatments for grey hair are focused the underlying causes for grey hair. It is believed that this issue is caused due to the hydrogen peroxide accumulation in the hair follicle root. This in turn can result in oxidative stress that can be harmful. Scientists have found out that a particular medicine containing a chemical known as pseudo catalase can actually turn the grey hair into black. This is also said to be a possible cure for vitiligo.

damage to hair: Hair damage has become a usual problem in both males and females. Hair damage in both these categories is caused due to the decrease the health status of hair. A healthy hair is that which is firmly rooted to the scalp. Any issues such as changing lifestyle, improper combing pattern can hamper the hair structure in a major way. One of the reliable treatments available is minoxidil, which is noticed to promote hair growth in almost 33.33% of those who regularly apply it.

Oily/greasy hair: Almost all of us do not prefer a hair that is very much slick. Various factors can cause such a condition. Natural habits such as over application of oils and oily hair creams can result in this condition.

Hair transplantation is a surgicaltechnique that moves individual hair follicles from a part of the body called the 'donor site' to bald or balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site'. It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. In this minimally invasive procedure, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding are transplanted to the bald scalp. It can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, pubic hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants. Hair transplantation differs from skin grafting in that grafts contain almost all of the epidermis and dermissurrounding the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin. Since hair naturally grows in groupings of 1 to 4 hairs, today’s most advanced techniques harvest and transplant these naturally occurring 1–4 hair "follicular units" in their natural groupings. Thus modern hair transplantation can achieve a natural appearance by mimicking nature hair for hair. This hair transplant procedure is called Follicular unit transplantation (FUT). Donor hair can be harvested two different ways: strip harvesting, and follicular unit extraction (FUE).[1]
