Hair Loss Treatments

Hair loss treatments, there are many on the market right now but which should you be considering? In this post, I aim to share with you some that I am either considering or are doing.

hair loss treatment

I recently shared that I have slowly been losing my hair in the middle of my head. Though I cannot pinpoint the exact cause; it could be dietary or healthy related. It is something that has been weighing heavily on my confidence when styling my hair. Currently my hair is in braids, though I won’t claim to be the goddess of hair care but I do ok. Imagine my surprise when I noticed a patch in the middle of my head shorter than the rest. Initially I put it down to just treated hair falling off and in growth coming through. Then I blamed it on the stress I was expressing at work, but months later and it was still the same situation.

Over the next couple of months I ignored the now more apparent patch where my hair was just dropping off. I doused my hair with all the hair creams I can think of but this afro has a way of sucking the scalp dry. Within a few days of oiling my head, it was already dry and I need to oil again. It is this constant oiling, washing, conditioning that I do not have the patience for hence why I neglect my hair. But I can’t do it forever so I decided to make some changes and consider some hair loss treatments. 

Hair loss treatments

A day at the salon

Though I do not always have the chance to visit a salon, I go to my hair dresser every few months or so. She has now opened a salon in Huntingdon Cambridge specialising in afro hair and she always has time for me. Whenever I go, my hair gets washed, conditioned, rinsed then treated before moisturising it. On thing I do not have a knack for is the treatment part, it is simple enough to do at home but I am often too lazy to do it. What I love is that my hair dresser is well versed in hair treatments except me her client I am too lazy to implement the simplest of options.

A salon at home

Yes I have said I am not one to do home hair treatments but every now and again I remember my mother’s words. Your hair should be your pride and joy as a woman, she obviously forgot how lazy I can be about it. So for the days when I can not afford to visit the salon or can’t travel to one I do it myself. Usually I start with washing my hair with shampoo, rinse then condition. After hand drying my hair, I would dry with my blower on low heat before applying some hair moisturiser. I would love to say I can do the treatment at home, treatment is just putting conditioner in your hair and sitting under hot air for 30-45 minutes. Afterwards you rinse, wash again before you apply hair moisturiser and ready to style.

Hair transplant

There are so many companies out there offering hair transplant treatments like FUE which is offered by Harley Street Hair Clinic. Follicular Unit Extraction {FUE} involves getting some hair from a donor (usually back of the neck) to a recipient. I must say I do not think I am yet at the stage of wanting hair transplant but some of you might be.

Though FUE is a relatively new type of treatment, it differs from other hair transplant treatments. With FUE, procedure is non-invasive, quick recovering time and no scaring. The beauty about FUE treatment is that it can be done in one season or several sessions. With a successful FUE transplant, donor hair grows, moves and feels the way it used to.  Though hair transplant cost‘s can be quite high the benefits are so worth it. Everytime I think about hair transplant I think of Wayne Rooney now I can not imagine him without hair.

Cut it off and start again

The simplest option for me I think it cutting it all off and starting again. I don’t think I have that type of head that can be paraded bald so I will just trim it. I have been using FolliOne and it seems to be helping with my hair growth. But this will be confirmed once I remove my braids and see if my hair is actually growing.

Outside of changing my diet completely or taking some supplements, these are some of the considerations I have in place. Hair loss can be quite daunting especially when you can not pinpoint the cause and Dr. Google comes up with 101 diagnostics.

    Hair loss could be caused by many factors , I think diet is very important and taking supplements.

    • December 11, 2016 / 7:30 pm

      I have been thinking about improving my diet and looking into hair supplements

    I have suffered with hair loss since having my children, having it cut did help

    Its great that there are a few options in the way of treating hair loss! I know that the age of people getting hair transplants is getting lower and lower suprisingly!

    • December 11, 2016 / 7:29 pm

      I wasn’t surprised too when I was looking at the stats

  6. December 10, 2016 / 2:23 pm

    Sorry to hear about the hair loss, hope that you find a viable solution soon. I have such long hair it would break my heart.

    • December 11, 2016 / 7:29 pm

      Thanks Ana, I never thought would happen to me but alas it has and now I am desperately trying to re-grow it

  7. December 10, 2016 / 7:12 am

    I can’t imagine what that must feel like, losing hair like that. I hope you get to the bottom of it soon and it all grows back for you.

    • December 11, 2016 / 7:28 pm

      I hope so too as it’s starting to distress me

    I am sorry to hear about your hair, I don’t know how you are handling it as well a it seems. For me it is one of the things I dread the most I have to admit x

    • December 11, 2016 / 7:28 pm

      I have no choice but to handle it as if I truly think about it I would breakdown

  9. December 9, 2016 / 1:42 pm

    I can only imagine how heartbreaking it must feel to begin loosing your hair and I think any products that help would be amazing to those who are desperate to find something that ca help them

    • December 11, 2016 / 7:27 pm

      It sure is heartbreaking and saddening as a woman hair it your pride

  10. December 9, 2016 / 12:44 pm

    How can you sit under hot air for 30 mins when you’re at home? Do you need some piece of special tech or use a hairdryer.. ?

    • December 11, 2016 / 7:27 pm

      I would use a hair dryer, used to in the past but unless you have the hair dryer stands the arm does start to hurt after a while lol

  11. December 9, 2016 / 12:37 pm

    Sorry to hear you’ve been loosing your hair, I think I would be tempted to cut it off and start again x

    • December 11, 2016 / 7:25 pm

      Thanks luv, I have been trimming it slowly and soon will do a big chop to start again

    I’m sorry to hear that Anosa, it isn’t something that is very easy to handle especially as people can be very cruel. I have a friend who has quite bad alopecia and the things people say to her or that she over hears are downright mean. She has now resorted to covering her head so I will suggest she try the Follione too as she might find it helps. I really hope that it is helping you. Sending hugs xxx

    • December 9, 2016 / 12:35 pm

      Thanks so much Melanie I appreciate that and sorry about your friend I hope she tries FolliOne as though I am not seeing a draft change I am noticing a small change so far

  13. December 9, 2016 / 10:16 am

    Sorry you have been loosing your hair. My friend suffers with alopecia and she lost a lot of hair at school.

    • December 9, 2016 / 12:34 pm

      Thanks Jemma it’s been distressing

    I’ve never thought about the possibility of loosing my hair, although there is a period in the year when I tend to get a million of them in my brush each time I detangle them. I guess treatments never make miracles, otherwise men wouldn’t have that problem anymore.

      No no miracles come easy but there are some treatments that seem to work

    my sister has lot’s of short bits at the back that just wont grow. So she is thinking of having an undercut and then regrowing it hopefully

    • December 9, 2016 / 12:34 pm

      My back hair has been like that for years that never really worried it’s the middle of my head that is

  16. December 8, 2016 / 5:13 pm

    A lot of people say that going really short and re-growing it is the best option. I seem to malt like crazy x

    • December 9, 2016 / 12:33 pm

      I am trying that out myself regrowing my hair

    I lose so much hair it’s ridiculous. Apparently, it’s normal (for me) though because my hair is still as full as it was years ago. It is SO annoying though!

    • December 9, 2016 / 12:33 pm

      At least yours is still full mine seems thinner now

  18. December 8, 2016 / 2:44 pm

    Losing some of your hair must be quite scary. Your hair really is your pride as a woman. It’s good though, that you have come up with some possible treatments.

    • December 9, 2016 / 12:32 pm

      It really is scary and not knowing the root cause is giving me sleepless nights

    Oh no!! Hair loss for women (and men) I’m sure can be quite a sad moment. I know that lazy feeling when it comes to doing hair. I can be the same but my hair benefits from it when I bother – need to wash mine today, treatment n all.

    • December 8, 2016 / 9:02 am

      It truly is a sad moment when it happens I have first hand experience but I am working on it now .
