In this article, we are going to discuss certain very unintentional habits that can lead to hair thinning.

Not-enough Shampooing or frequent Shampooing:  It’s depends upon the type of scalp you have, oily scalp needs more frequent shampooing than dry and rough scalp, it’s very important to nourish your scalp by properly cleaning it, this help you in improving and maintaining your hair growth. Not cleaning your scalp on regular basis will lead to accumulation of pollutant and oil, which will further lead to scalp inflammation and dandruff causing itching, scratching and finally breaking and thinning of hairs.

Treating your Hair: Don’t be too rough with your hairs while washing, Conditioning or combing. Wash and condition your hairs with very gentle hands and when done use a wide teeth comb to clear the tangles, the less you pull your hairs the better it would be for your hairs.

Smoking: Smoking is considered as one of the leading causes of hair thinning by reducing scalp blood circulation. The damage done to hairs due to smoking can be reversed depending on the frequency of smoking, the time period the person is smoking from and the amount of damage done to the circulatory system. Don’t think of it as quitting; think of it as gaining hair!

Proper Diet: Evenif you are using the most expensive or effective products recommended by your stylist or hair specialist, but not taking a proper diet that includes a balanced consumption of protein, fat, vitamins and minerals you won’t get the kind of healthy hair growth you might expecting. At Dr Manoj Bachhav’s Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center Nashik, We have assessed a lot of patients who complained about hair loss, we analyzed their diet and just by changing their diet the rate of hair loss decreased and eventually stopped.

Styling Tools: Using too much styling tools like hairdryer, rollers, flat irons or curling on a daily basis can damage your hairs causing breakage and weakening of scalp, thus it is advised even if you are using hair styling products regularly keep the heat setting of all such tools to the lowest point.

Hair Brush: Have you ever wondered that within your hairbrush collection, there must be one hairbrush that must be your favorite that always gives you the perfect results with less or no hair breakage, Right! Always choose the right brush for your hairs, because a wrong hairbrush can do irreversible damage if used for long.

Hair Cut: Especially for women, if you are thinking of growing your hairs long, do visit your hairstylist often to get the ends trimmed this will escalate the process of healthy hair growth reducing damage, breakage and split ends.

Styling Products: Using hair gel and hair spray might enhance your looks for a while, but using such products for longer period of time can damage your hairs, as these products contain a certain amount of alcohol that can make hairs go dry and you might experience hair break or hair fall while combing.

Direct Sunlight: Always cover your hairs while walking out in sun, as direct sunlight can damage your hair outer cuticle and fiber, making your hair more prone to breaking.

Now, if you are engaged in any of the practices mentioned above and experiencing hair breakage or hair loss it’s not necessary for you to go crazy and look for remedies! Best would be to consult a hair specialist!

Get a Hair Transplant Only by a Specialist

A casualty following hair transplant surgery performed in a salon in Chennai was a tragic event. It sparked multiple debates among healthcare professionals and equally provoked many questions in the mind of patients. It is time to wake up and realize the importance of getting this procedure done only by a specialist. Hair transplant surgery is a permanent solution for baldness. It’s a safe procedure, during which hair roots from the back of the head are plucked and implanted in the bald patch. Hair growth starts after three to four months and complete growth is seen after 10 to 12 months. This hair grows like normal hair and can be cut or colored.

While it is performed under local anesthesia, it’s important that the procedure is done only by specialists. Only a specialist doctor can decide about the anesthesia dosage and technique of the operation. A patient has to be counseled for the transplant by the specialist doctor, he should know whether the operation is going to be done by a surgeon and not by a technician, be aware of the degree and experience of the doctor, be given written information about care to be taken and post operative medicines. The Surgeries should be performed in centers with fully equipped OT and have facilities of sterilization and an emergency situation. Every patient undergoing surgery should undergo a detailed pre-operative investigation to ensure safety. Post procedure check up by the surgeon to ensure patient well-being is also a must.

There are many rules and regulations monitoring doctors, but unfortunately, implementation is the biggest issue in India. These loose regulations are exploited by under-qualified, non-allopathic or unqualified people, who lure patients in the grab of advertisements. “As a result, fraudulent hair transplant and aesthetic centers and salons, which display boards such as advanced robotic surgery, have propped up like mushrooms. These so-called trichologists, who claim to be expert hair transplant surgeon and promote their business through cheap EMI schemes, emails and messages should be avoided. One should not get attracted to these kind of advertisements and take a risk of their own health. Think and enquire before taking a decision.

A hair transplant can be done by  dermatologists and plastic surgeons. There is a need to regulate unethical practices. Public awareness is very important as well.
