NUTRITION FOR HEALTHY HAIR
Nutrition For Healthy Hair
The most common cause of hair loss is androgenic alopecia (AGA), also known as male pattern baldness or female pattern baldness. It’s an autoimmune disease: when our immune system attacks our own body. In this case, our hair follicles.
Hair restoration includes the medical and surgical treatment of various forms of hair loss. This includes non-surgical, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment techniques that can work very well in the FOUR PHASES of nutrition for healthy hair.

When we imagine running our fingers through our hair, we’ve an individual sense of how this should feel. How it shouldn’t feel. SUSANNAH is a SPEAKER @ FACE CONFERENCE UK JUNE 17 2017 *TOPIC* NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS FOR HAIR LOSS — IS THERE ANY PROOF?
A complete medical history, to include our family’s health history and a physical examination can help us find out the reason or reasons why we’re experiencing hair loss or hair thinning. It can be noticeable to ourselves and others but oftentimes it can be worrying when we’re not sure how this pattern will continue in weeks, months, years to come. The pattern and rate of hair loss, the appearance of nearby hairs, and accompanying symptoms are all considered when we look at the options available and how diet and lifestyle measures can help exactly.
SHORT AND LONG TERM MANAGEMENT
A step-by-step plan means that you’re able to look at the picture overall. You can see the goal and simple diet and lifestyle changes you’ll be making on a day-by-day basis.
Functional investigations provide data to optimise health and are a guideline for success rates of treatment.
Functional testing measures may or may not be necessary. This is all to be decided at consultation. It may not be suitable at this time. This is why we’ve built a strong referral network with specialists more suited to tackle particular hair loss concerns such as male pattern baldness etc.

Hair Transplantation Surgery
Surgical hair restoration is the only permanent technique that can move hair from permanent zone to the balding area. This involves redistribution of hair from one to another area of the same body.
Follicular Unit transplantation is the most common surgical technique, whereby the back of the head is the same body site from which hair is redistributed around.
Follicular Unit Extraction is the most minimally invasive surgical method of hair redistribution whereby the procedure expands donor area (eg chest, leg etc.) allowing hair surgeons to harvest body hair for more natural consequences and less scarring.
Laboratory research by teams at Columbia University Medical Center (et al) in the US and Durham University in the UK have aimed to transform mature human skin cells into skin stem cells capable of growing human hair and skin cells when transplanted into mice.
Results suggest an approach for generating large numbers of human EpSCs (Epithelial Stem cells) for tissue engineering and new treatments for hair loss, wound healing and other degenerative skin disorders are on the horizon.
While this technique appears to have the potential to transform the treatment of hair loss, there is a lot of work still to be done before it can be tested in humans.
Minoxidil – an antihypertensive, vasodilator, over-the-counter medication r to stop hair loss or promote hair regrowth.
Propecia (finasteride) is approved as a prescribed medical hair restoration for men with AGA. However, the drug does come with side-effects.
