Hair loss in both women and men can be very common, and on a daily basis we lose around 50–100 hairs while remaining oblivious to it. While hair loss is nothing to feel overwhelmed by, it could potentially be a symptom of a medical condition.

If hair loss runs in the family, it can often result in pattern baldness in both men and women which is permanent. On the other hand, other types of hair loss can be temporary, and caused by the following issues:

Illness

Thinning and balding of your hair can sometimes signal a medical condition - this can include alopecia, thyroid issues, lupus and other diseases known for hair loss. If illness is the reason behind your hair loss, then it is important to see your GP immediately for a health check and to receive treatment.

Iron Deficiency

Lacking in essential nutrients can often have effects on your body, as conditions such as iron deficiency mean your body is not producing enough haemoglobin in your blood.

Haemoglobin is essential for carrying oxygen which can promote growth and repair of cells in your body, including the cells responsible for stimulating hair growth.

Stress

Feelings of extreme stress can often have a physical and mental effect on your body. These effects may include headaches, dizziness, constantly feeling tired, under or over eating and hair loss.

Telogen Effluvium is the term referred to for hair loss that is brought on temporarily by stress, trauma or a shock to your body. This can often result in disturbance for the natural growth and rest cycle of your hair. 

Most people have hair where 80-90% is actively growing, while the remaining percentage is resting. When you lose the balance of this, you can begin to notice your hair falling out in clumps when you touch it.

Weight Loss

When you’re quickly beginning to lose weight, or are losing weight as a result of stress, it can sometimes lead to hair loss. Often with this kind of weight loss, you could be lacking in protein intake. When this happens, your body has the responsibility to decide where to delegate the protein you do have, leaving your hair to have last dibs as it is not necessarily essential for your survival.

Cancer Treatment

Within 2-3 weeks of starting chemotherapy, there is a chance of hair loss or thinning. Some chemotherapy drugs (not all of them) can also make hair from other parts of your body fall out. However, once your treatment is complete your hair will often grow back. 

Radiotherapy can also result in hair loss, but this time only in the area where you’re being treated. Unfortunately, your hair will not always regrow when complete.

Hormonal therapy, targeted (biological) therapy and other cancer treatments can potentially affect your hair.

Booking a GP Appointment

If you do begin to experience any of the following, then it is important to book an appointment with your GP as soon as possible:

Sudden hair loss

Losing clumps of hair

Developing bald patches

Head burns and itches

You’re concerned about your hair loss

Modern non-surgical hair replacement is designed to be comfortable, discreet and far easier to manage, offering many advantages over the surgical alternative.

This innovative hair replacement treatment works by applying a lightweight, transparent and breathable membrane to the scalp. The membrane is then infused with human hair and attached to the scalp where it is woven in with the existing hair, creating a completely natural look.

If you are considering hair replacement options, here we look at some of the key reasons that our patients choose to have non-surgical treatment.

Performance

Advanced technology allows non-surgical hair replacement to be performed to a high level of accuracy, tailored to the preferences of the patient. This means that all elements of appearance, such as colour matching, density and direction of growth will appear as natural as possible.

Painless treatment

Non-surgical hair replacement is performed with no painful or intrusive methods, meaning it is far more comfortable than alternative restoration and transplant procedures that require injections and even the removal of skin from the scalp.

Fast results

The results of non-surgical hair replacement become evident immediately as the natural and artificial hair is instantly woven together creating fuller and natural looking hair. This will remain consistent with the natural growth of your hair as time passes.  

Less risk

Unlike surgical hair replacement techniques, non-surgical treatments can be reversed if the patient changes their mind or is unsure about the results. This means there is no risk of being left with a permanent hair replacement solution that cannot be easily changed.

Lower cost

Non-surgical hair replacement delivers fantastic results at a far lower cost than that associated with a surgical alternative. This makes it a far more popular option for those seeking hair replacement treatment that is safe, painless and effective but is not overly expensive.
