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.
Throughout our website we provide information regarding every aspect of the hair transplant process.

Nearly all medications have the potential to carry side effects. Hair loss is sometimes one of them. Though not as frequent as side effects like headache or nausea, when hair loss does occur, it often can rattle patients and leave them with countless questions like:
- Is the hair loss permanent?
- Will it get worse?
- Is the meditation worth it?
All are fair questions. As much as we love our health, we also love our hair. It can be a frustrating challenge to decide what’s best for ourselves and our well-being.
Nothing’s easy about cancer or undergoing chemotherapy. However, as cancer-related research and technology advances, so do remedies developed to combat chemotherapy’s many side effects. One of these most dreaded side effects includes hair loss.
For both men and women, hair loss is one of the most challenging aspects of chemotherapy. Some people report having a harder time coping with hair loss than by losing a body part to cancer or even receiving the cancer diagnosis itself.
