There are various causes of hair loss, from natural aging, genetics, to certain illnesses. While treatments like a follicular unit extraction (FUE) at Mexico hair transplant centers, such as the Baja Hair Center, can be effective, a bit of prevention won’t hurt. An article from The Huffington Post reports that hair loss could be prevented by a healthy diet:
While eating extra carrots, spinach or broccoli won’t yield the same results as a hair transplant, it will help to promote healthy growth.
Topping up on protein rich foods (such as eggs) and those rich in omega fatty acids (walnuts, flax seeds and kale) will encourage proper growth, while sweet potatoes and broccoli, which contain high levels of vitamins E and C will keep hair supple and shiny.
Proper Diet as Prevention
The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) cites that poor diet and inadequate nutrition contributes to the thinning of one’s hair. Weight loss, eating disorders, iron deficiency, and too much vitamin A in the body can make a person prone to hair loss, as well. Therefore, regularly eating well-balanced meals rich in the necessary vitamins and minerals can do wonders for an individual’s locks.
Physiological and Psychological Culprits
There are four health conditions that can result in hair loss: (1) alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease which can lead to complete baldness, or bald patches on the scalp or other parts of the body; (2) traction alopecia, caused by constant pulling of the hair from the scalp; (3) hereditary hair loss, which starts by hair thinning at the middle of the scalp; and (4) trichotillomania, a psychological disease where the person pulls hair ‘til it comes off.
If you want your hair to last long on your head, you have treat it with utmost care and consideration. Frequent use of harsh shampoos, dyes, sprays, blow dryers, irons, and other hair products can damage hair and cause it to eventually fall out.
There are several ways to treat hair loss, depending on the amount of hair lost and its primary cause. For many, hair transplants like Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE can bring back the appearance of full or fuller hair. Patients that undergo the treatment typically get 60% of new hair growth after 6-9 months. FUE is the removal of healthy hair follicles from the scalp or a donor area and putting them one by one to the bald spots.
Hair transplant in the USA can be quite costly, so people looking for affordability while still being assured of quality turn to medical tourism. Indeed, a quality, state-of-the-art hair transplant in Mexico will cost considerably less, paving the way for more savings.
