We’ve all heard the saying that if you cut your hair it will grow back faster than it did before. But does this saying have any truth to it?
Commonly associated with facial hair and shaving, this saying has been around forever and people still believe it to this day.
What Is Hair Miniaturization?
Hair miniaturization is a natural process that occurs in 95% of all hair loss cases. It’s the starting point from which male pattern baldness occurs. Individual follicles and strands shrink over time, then become dormant and eventually scar over if left untreated.
Over the past few years there have been an increasing number of men undergoing testosterone treatments for no valid medical reason(s) other than a lifestyle trend referred to as “male menopause”. They view these treatments as the “fountain of youth” and can experience many benefits ranging from increased libido, preventing muscle mass loss, and improved energy levels.
Thanks to ever advancing technology in the world of hair loss, there are more non-surgical options than ever to help prevent a thinning scalp, and one of those new ways is PRP Therapy, also known as Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy.
This exciting new non-surgical procedure has shown great results in helping prevent and reduce hair loss.
Do you find yourself constantly brushing flakes off your shoulders? Have you tried anti-dandruff shampoo hoping that will correct the embarrassing problem?
If you are experiencing a flaky scalp, then there is a chance that it could be causing your hair to thin out.
Flaky/dry scalp is most often caused by run of the mill “dandruff”. The skin on your scalp is constantly replacing itself and when the old cells are pushed out, they can create the flakes that you see appearing on your head or your clothing. Sometimes people think this is all because they have “dry scalp” but this is really due to mild inflammation on the scalp and “dysregulated cell turnover;” the skin is shedding either too fast or too slow.
There are many different options out there when it comes to hair loss treatment and you don’t always have to undergo surgery in order to help improve your hair loss. And while a hair transplant may seem like the only permanent solution to your hair loss, depending on your condition, medical treatments like Rogaine (Minoxidil) can have incredible results when used properly.
