Hair loss leading to baldness is usually a problem associated with men. However, that does not mean that women will never have to undergo the same. Although it may not happen as often in women, there is such a thing as female pattern baldness.
Fortunately, balding can be overcome by undergoing hair transplant in Mexico. The procedure involves grafting healthy hair follicles from a healthy section of the head and transplanting them onto the balding section. This allows hair to once again grow in that spot.
While there are successful treatment options for balding, preventing hair loss is the preferable option. Typically, the rate of hair loss depends on your genetics. Sadly, there isn’t much you can do about your DNA. However, there are certain factors that increase the rate of hair loss that you can control, including:
The way you style your hair plays a key role in keeping it on your head and out of your shower drain. An article from The Huffington Post explains further:
“Do you find yourself constantly pulling your hair back in a tight bun or ponytail? Do you wear tight braids or extensions? Over time, these styles damage the hair follicles, a condition known as traction alopecia. One tight hairstyle isn’t going to harm your hair… But after many years, traction alopecia could cause permanent hair loss. Try changing it up with a new hairstyle, never use rubber bands to tie hair (they cause breakage, try fabric ones instead), and wear ponytails or buns in different areas of the scalp. For example, alternate between wearing a low and high ponytail.”
Although Vitamin A is universally known for keeping good eyesight, it also aids in the natural growth and recovery of hair. Unfortunately, the saying “too much of a good thing is bad for you” also applies here: taking in too much Vitamin A can aid hair loss. That in mind, you should stick to consuming the daily recommended amount.
If you have started to lose hair, you can always see an experienced dermatologist like Dr. Sara Lea Salas to see if you are eligible for hair transplant in Mexico. After the procedure, you can then follow the tips above to keep your new hair where it belongs: on your head.
