Hair Loss in Women – Enter Mesoscalp

Since hair is a very important part of a woman's body image, women are more likely to go through fear and anxiety compared to their male counterparts, who regards hair loss as part of aging. "Women really look at their hair, some even cry in frustration when they see clumps of hair falling out."

Hair loss is seen to begin at a much younger age today than it did before, and affects both men and women in equal measure. If present trends are any indication, it is likely that 50 per cent of men and 40 per cent of women would suffer from thinning / loss of hair before they turn 50. The condition is particularly prominently in women as they grow older and reach menopause.

Factors contributing to hair loss are many and varied, ranging from hereditary factors to the increasing number of environmental pollutants. Erratic and faulty eating habits, eating nutritionally deficient food, illnesses, anemia, poor blood flow to the scalp region, skin pathology, hormonal imbalances and excess dandruff are major factors.

Mesotherapy for the hair or Mesoscalp, a revolutionary treatment developed in France that promises to aid hair re-growth in women experiencing certain type of hair loss and delay male pattern baldness in men. Originally a medical technique devised in 1952 by Frenchman Dr. Michel Pistor to treat such conditions as infectious and vascular diseases, Mesotherapy has been remarkably successful in the treatment of fat reduction and the elimination of cellulite. Now, it has been discovered that Mesotherapy can be used as a prolonged treament for men and women experiencing excess hair loss.

Mesoscalp replaces the vitamins and minerals that the body loses as with age. Vitamins such as Biotin in Mesoscalp treatments cause an increase in blood circulation to the scalp area and stimulate the hair follicles. Unlike Biotin hair supplements or other commercial preparations on the market, Mesoscalp claims positive results in just a few weeks, because the drugs are injected directly into the scalp. Hair vitamins or topical medicines can be ineffective in some cases because they are not properly absorbed by the body. Mesoscalp solves this by problem by targeting the medicine directly at the roots. Mesoscalp works by injecting small amounts of specially formulated vitamins under the skin, very close to the hair follicles, using micro-needles. This solution stimulates blood circulation and stimulates re-growth of hair.

Hair destruction and hair fall are continuous processes accompancing advancing age. Mesotherapy can not do anything for those who are completely bald. It is neither a cure for hair loss nor can it stop natural hair fall associated with ageing. But what it does is to strengthen worn hair follicles and help them grow into thicker hair. But mesotherapy alone is not sufficient to ensure maintenance of healthy hair state.

It has to be complemented with other healthy habits, including eating nutritious food, avoiding junk food, drinking plenty of water, tackling stressful lifestyles and nourishing the scalp with appropriate hair-care agents.

Persons seeking the treatment are checked for medical history to see if they are fit to undergo the process. They are advised not to use sauna or any other hair treatment, including application of cream or oil, for a whole day prior to the treatment. They are, however, asked to rinse the hair with shampoo.

The duration of each mesotherapy session depends on the hair condition and the person's pain threshold, but usually lasts 10 – 15 minutes. The injections do not penetrate deep into the skin, but as nearly a hundred pricks may be required at a single time, the scalp tends to become sore. A typical treatment schedule involves treatment once a week for four weeks, followed by once a fortnight for one month and finally tapered down to once a month for four months. On completion, maintenance therapy may be initiated once every three months.

Use Eyebrow Makeup to Cover Up Eyebrow Hair Loss

Eyebrow hair loss is a major problem nowdays among many men and women. The good news is that there are various ways that you can use to get back the same eyebrow hair. However, there are no quick ways to get the eyebrow hair back. The tattoo treatment would be an exception here since it does not involve the use of hair at all. The fact regarding the disease is that for many people the major reason is autoimmune disease. The condition is known as Alopecia Areata, which affects the scalp hair, eyebrow hair or any other hairy area of ​​the body.

You can use eyebrow makeup to cover the hair loss. It is simple and you will not even want to take help from someone else. All you need is your eyebrow makeup kit and eyebrow stencil. When you go shopping for eyebrow stencils, make sure that you purchase the one that suits the shape of your eyebrows.

First, put the stencil over your eyebrows and draw a line towards the inner side. When you have drawn the line, use a dark pencil to redefine it so it does not fade off easily. The color of the pencil should be that of your eyebrow hair color. Now take a colored eye shadow that goes well with the hair color of your eyebrow.

People usually have black, dark brown or light gray eye brow hair colors, depending on age and the natural hair color. Start filling the outline with the brush with the color. Make lighter strokes and use color in less quantity so it does not look fake. Fill in the color in between the eyebrow hair as well so it looks natural. When you are done with it, brush off the extra powder on both the eyebrows, pat them with a smudge brush so the color blends in evenly.

Now smudge and blend the outline towards the inner side of your eyebrows so it evens out. The look will be more pleasant and bright. If you have very light eyebrows and you wish to have a dramatic look, you can use a bolder shade of the eye pencil.

However, make sure that the eyebrow color does not look like a patch on the eyebrow. It should look absolutely natural and well kept. Also, when you use dark makeup for your eyebrows, make sure that you use a bold black shade of mascara for your eyelashes. Doing so will give a softer and natural look to your eyebrow makeup.

Why is My Scalp Itchy With Hair Loss?

I often write about issues of the scalp and hair. Yesterday, I got an email from someone who asked me if their hair loss could be related to their itchy, painful scalp or if one caused or contributed the other.  I’ll try to explain all that goes into the answer to that question in the following article.

Which Came First – The Hair Loss Or The Scalp Problems?: It’s actually relatively common for large amounts of hair loss and shedding to contribute to scalp issues.  In many cases of telogen effluvium or te (losing over 100 hairs per day for a significant period of time, usually caused by changes in your body like starting or stopping medications or illness), the act of many hairs going into the resting phase and being extracted / kicked out of the scalp can cause a lot of inflammation and irritation.  This alone can cause itching and pain.  And, when many hairs are trying to then regrow at once, this too can cause itching.  The scientific name for this is “burning scalp syndrome,” but even dermatologists disagree on what causes it. 

Some think it is a physical response to the changes / resting phase of many hair follicles at once, but I’ve had some doctors suggest to me that it is psychological, stemming from the stress of going through TE or hair loss. Whatever the cause, I know first hand that this is very real and can be very troubling when you are experiencing it.

Scalp Issues That Cause Hair Loss: With that said, there are some scalp issues that happen before the hair loss and are often the root cause of the shedding and loss.  Usually these conditions can be broken down into scarring alopecia (which includes conditions like folliculitis decalvans and lichen planopilaris) and severe scalp conditions like psoriasis, tinea capitis, and seborrhoeic dermatitis. Bacterial or yeast infections of the scalp can also cause inflammation and hair loss.

Scarring alopecia is typically very hard to ignore. There is generally scaling, plaque, very noticeable redness, and often patterned loss around the wound(s).  The non scarring scalp conditions can present with more diffuse or over all loss and can be harder to spot (although you FEEL the problem, even if you don’t see it.)

Inflammation Is The Common Denominator:  In cases of scarring alopecia, a doctor is typically needed.  But, sometimes cases of TE or telogen effluvium and passing seasonal scalp issues mean waiting it out, stopping the trigger that is the cause, and / or helping to reduce the inflammation and irritation while waiting for the treatments to work.  There are many natural ingredients that work well for this.  Some have anti bacterial properties as well. Examples are tea tree oil, emu oil, lavender, and cedar wood.  It’s important to handle these properly though because they typically need to be diluted, rotated and placed with carrier oils to be both effective and to prevent build up and follicle clogging.

Hair Loss Stress and the Denial Experienced in the First Stage of Hair Loss Grief

There are 5 stages of grief that can also be likened to Hair Loss. In this article I will cover the first stage: Denial.

Denial is a survival reaction to loss or trauma, on a biological level it serves to numb the experience to protect you from your intense hair loss stress.

At this stage the world becomes meaningless and overwhelming, life just does not make any sense to you, suddenly all you can think about is 'am I losing my hair?' Hair loss like with death, you become shocked and in denial of what is happening to you. The magnitude of your hair loss stress is usually subconscious, you may not see how it is affecting your behavior just yet.

Hair loss, in the case of Male / Female Pattern Baldness, is usually a gradual thing, however it can be quickly accelerated by poor diet and increased stress. The shock does not initially set in but the basis of denial is definitely in play here. Perhaps you are looking in the mirror, going close up, exploring your hair from all angles but not really taking in the reality that your hair is falling out. You may have a daily feeling of unease with reminders of your hair loss and stressful feelings experienced when you start noticing it getting worse.

As mentioned, stress can accelerate Androgenic Alopecia, also known as Male / Female Pattern Baldness. It can also trigger Alopecia Areata; Totalis; Universalis etc, these are Auto -Immune Disorders. Stress only serves to make it worse not better.

Understanding your physical reaction to stress:

Following a shock or during prolonged periods of stress stress or unhealthy behavior, your immune system and vitality is compromised, particularly as your body is in a state of 'fight or flight' which means that instead of the blood being directed to your digestion for goodness and growth, your blood is shifted to your muscles in an animal instinct behavior, preparing you to fight or escape. This is a good state of alert if you are actually in danger, however it is detrimental to your physical and mental health if you are constantly triggered or stuck in 'fight or flight'. If the stress is continuously present it stops the body from absorbing vital vitamins and minerals, which in turn affects adrenal glands, the thyroid glands and other organ function.

It is this 'fight or flight' response that may have initially triggered your hair loss / alopecia in the first place. Now a added hair loss stress is making it worse. As a double edged sword, also preventing your hair from re-growing. Your body is now not in a state of panic growth and healing. It is vitally important for your emotional, psychological and more importantly physical health to break the damaging hair loss stress cycle. Stop being in denial about your stress and the impact your hair is having you on mind, body and social interaction.

Being afraid is very closely connected to denial, as it is this fear that prevails us from talking to friends, family or seeking medical or psychological help for the daily hair loss stresses you are trying to cope with. It is the fear to face up to the reality and disbelief that your lovely hair you have taken pride in is slowly or rapidly leaving you, sometimes not to return.

Often because your hair loss and stress may not be fully accepted or acknowledged for how damaging it really is, it can be a very isolating stage. Men and women may keep it to themselves, partly through shame and partly through the denial that it is anything to worry about. Perhaps it runs a little deer, you may not want to bury people, and you are protecting your loved ones from worrying about you. The truth is the only person who needs protecting is you.

Many men and women ignore the first signs and numb their feelings, often telling them that they are not that bothered – not enough to confide with someone. They may not altogether deny it but may just try to avoid seeking help or talking about their anxiety or recognizing the link between their hair loss and stress that is engulfing them. This is a lonely stage for many.

Get out of denial and out of your stressed state!

  • Talk to someone, a friend or a family member
  • Visit a Trichologist (hair specialist) to get a professional opinion on your hair loss.
  • If you think that it is getting worse, perhaps take photos so that you can actually see if it is or not.
  • Take some action! Research your options, see what help is available. In the case of Androgenic Alopecia also known as Male / Female Pattern Baldness, prevention is better than cure. There are treatments that can halt the hair loss process and some regrowth is possible but not in all cases.
  • If you have Alopecia Areata or other forms, again take action fast when finding a cosmetic solution to cover the baldness. Patches appear almost over night and can accelerate. A more natural alternative to a wig is a Hair Replacement System, but they take 3 months to make. Act fast!
  • De-stress by exercising; walking; meditation is a fantastic way to unwind; do things that you enjoy; talk to someone
  • Try Complementary therapy to help calm your mind

New Approaches for Hair Loss Treatment

Humans have tried every imaginable thing to stop hair loss and regrow lost hair. They rubbed the juices of all vegetables and fruits, and extracts of every available herb. Yet, they were unable to find any effective hair growth treatment. Undoubtedly there are numerous natural and herbal treatments for hair growth, but almost all lack systematic studies. If we ever hope to grow hair by natural means, we need to study natural remedies thoroughly. And even those with proven effects need a lot of time and patience to be effective. Another thing that makes natural remedies the least preferred choice in this age of technology is their temporary results. Hairs grown through natural sources do not long last, and start shedding off as soon as the use is discontinued.

For now, we have three types of hair growth treatments that help regrow hair in a natural manner restore a thicker and fuller head of hair. These include medical treatment, laser therapy, and surgical hair restoration.

Medical Hair Growth Treatment

There are a few options available to treat this through medications. Actually, these treatments produce better results if you take them in combination with one another. Let us have a look at these FDA-approved effective hair loss medicines.

Finasteride: Finasteride is the generic name of the probably most effective hair loss drug. This drug treats hair loss by inhibiting production of hair killing hormone DHT. DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is the most important hormone that signals the hair follicles to die – the most common cause of Androgenic Alopecia or male pattern baldness. To date, inhibiting this hormone is the most effective way to stop hair loss. Beside controlling hair loss, this medication thickens fine hair, and this produces considering effect.

Minoxidil: It is the second most effective treatment. It is supplied in the form of a topical solution. Minoxidil is also a generic name; famous brand names of this medicine include Rogaine and Hair Max. You need to apply this solution on the scalp twice a day, or as prescribed by the doctor and massage for a few minutes.

Ketoconazole: This medication is supplied as a shampoo-like solution. This encourages hair growth by keeping the scalp clean from fungus and dandruff. You need to use this as a shampoo twice a week, and leave the leather for 3-5 minutes on your head.

No doubt researchers have studied these medications and found them effective, they are not perfect yet. First, their effectiveness varies from person to person. One may find it very effective while another may find it minimally effective. Second, the effects of all medications are temporary. You will maintain your hair as long as you continue the use of these medications. Whenever you decide to discontinue the treatment, you will lose your hair maintained by these medications. Third, like all other medication, hair loss medication is not without side effects. You must discuss its side effects before starting the treatment.

Low-Level Laser Therapy

Low-level laser is showing some measurable results to stimulate hair growth. Currently, it is considered as convenient alternative of medication with fewer side effects. However, its effectiveness is an issue of debt. Until now, it is unable to show dramatic improvement in hair density.

Surgical Hair Growth Treatment-Hair Transplant

Hair transplant is to date the most effective treatment to date. It can restore hair on bald places in an effective and predictable manner. Hair transplant extracts healthy, balding resistant hair follicles form one area of ​​the head and plants them to the balding areas. Not all hairs on our head are made to balding. While the hair at the front and crown of the head are broken to hair loss, hair at the sides and back of the head are resistant to it. This procedure makes excellent use of these hair reserves on our head.

Follicular Unit Transplant: Also known as the strip removal method, FUT excises a strip of scalp, usually from the back of the head, and dissects is to obtain required hair follicles. The wound is stitched together and the grafts obtained from the strip and implanted on the thinning or bald areas.

Follicular Unit Extraction: FUE is a reliably newer and more advanced technique replacing the traditional strip removal method. This technique involves extracting the hair follicles directly from the scalp, without cutting and stitching the scalp. The follicles are extracted using a specially designed punch tool with diameter less than 0.1 mm. What makes FUE a more preferred choice of surgeons and patients is its ability to extract hair follicles form body areas like chest, armpits, and legs as well.

Stem Cell FUE: Stem Cell FUE is the latest advancement in FUE hair transplant. It is the quickest, safest and the most effective hair transplant technique to date. It uses an automated punch tool for extraction of hair follicles at the fastest possible speed. It also allows hair regrowth at the donor area, thus ensuring the most natural looking results.

A hair transplant has only one limit: the availability of donor hair. At present, there is no way to create new hair follicles; therefore, the patient must have healthy, balding resistant hair follicles somewhere on the scalp or the body. Fortunately, most of us have enough donor hair on the scalp or on the body to create a dramatic improvement in hair density.

Unexplained Hair Loss In Women

Unexplained hair loss is becoming more common among women. Sudden hair starts falling out for no reason, at an alarming rate-sometimes usefuls at a time. For many women, shock and panic set in as the dramatic increase in shed continues. Some worry they may soon become completely bald.

Because routine lab work often comes back normal, the condition may be dismissed as "just a cosmetic problem " that one must learn to live with . Or , the person may be handed a one-size-fits-all prescription for a synthetic topical treatment that only deals with the symptom rather than the undering issue.

It is important to understand that chronic excess shedding is not normal, and will not occur when all is well. When the hair growth cycle shuts down, or stops functioning properly it is an indication that a physical or emotional imbalance exists. Telogen effluvium is the name for this condition.

A temporary increase in shedding may occur due to a minor, short-lived trigger such as infection, flu, high fever, new medication, change in diet, medical procedure, vaccination, shock or trauma, etc. If the body is otherwise healthy; and the triggering factor has been resolved or removed the hair growth cycle will spontaneously heal before any noticeable thinning occurs. Although this type of telogen effluvium is usually not cause for concern, it may be beneficial to pinpoint the trigger in order to avoid the possibility of future episodes.

When the condition is long-reflecting and severe, causing an obvious decrease in volume there may be a defect issue that must be determined and treated in order to restore normal thickness and optimal health.

Often there is more than one contributing factor. Chronic telogen effluvium occurs as a result of the body working overtime – expending extra energy in attempt to overcome the internal disturbance, imbalance or disorder. The hair growth cycle may shut down or become disrupted in order to compensate while the body deals with the difficult task of trying to re-establish balance.

Below is a list of common causes or contributing factors that can lead to chronic telogen effluvium. It's important to realize that if one of the following conditions exists, it does not necessarily implicate that it is the single cause of the problem. Correcting all imbalances and improving overall health and well-being is the best line of defense.

THYROID IMBALANCE

Standard thyroid testing is often incomplete. Because even a slight imbalance can cause hair loss, thorough, highly sensitive lab work is advised-especially if thyroid symptoms exists. This should include testing for antibodies (Hashimotos thyroiditis).

NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCY

Common deficiencies that are associated with hair loss include protein, iron, zinc, magnesium, chromium, selenium, vitamin D, etc. These shortcomings are also often associated with the undercoming disorder in which hair loss is the symptom of. Rather than supplementing or increasing dietetic intake of one particular nutrient, it may be more beneficial to include a wide variety of nutrients through diet and supplementation in order to provide balance to the body.

MAL-ABSORBTION

Nutritional deficiencies are often caused by mal-absorption issues such as Celiac (gluten intolerance) or Chron's disease and other digestive disorders. In addition to increasing nourishment, success will depend on determining and evaluating the underlying mal-absorption condition accordingly.

CANDIDIASIS ALBICANS

Candidiasis albicans is a systemic fungal / yeast infection. This under-diagnosed condition can wreak havoc of the entire system. Symptoms include an over-all feeling of un-wellness, foggy thinking, lack of energy etc. Skin symptoms and hair loss are common. If Candidiasis albicans exists, healing the infection should produce possible improvements in hair and skin health and overall wellness.

SYSTEMIC INFLAMMATION

Some experts believe that chronic low-level systemic inflammation is at the root of all health disorders. Anti-inflammatory diet can be very helpful for health of hair and the undering related disorders.

AUTOIMMUNE DISORDER

Autoimmune disorders may make a person more susceptible to chronic telogen effluvium. To keep symptoms from manifesting, great efforts must be made to keep immune system balanced. Certain autoimmune conditions such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Graves's disease, Celiac, Chron's and lupus are commonly associated with hair loss.

HORMONAL CHANGES / POSTPARTUM

It's not uncommon for telogen effluvium to occur in women approximately three months after delivering a baby. In normal cases the condition subsides within six to nine months, leaving the new mother with only a slight decrease in thickness and volume. If the shedding becomes severe and long-repeating it would indicate that other factors are involved. Extreme care and extra nourishment are necessary during the postpartum period.

UNHEALTHY LIFE STYLE

Anytime an unhealthy lifestyle is present it will be more difficult to re-establish healthy hair growth. The better condition the body is in physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, the easier it will be to heal the imbalances causing the excessive shedding. Although disorder of the hair growth cycle can be the first sign of a wide variety of health disorders, it can be last to recover. The body has a built-in healing system that works on the principals or priority. It will provide healing energy to the areas that are most essential before it will bother with hair growth. The best results are achieved when the entire system is treated holistically rather than concentrating only on the symptom of hair loss.

ALOPECIA AREATA

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition that specifically targets follicles of the scalp causing bald patches. This is not a form of telogen effluvium but there are variations of alopecia areata that can mimic telogen effluvium such as diffuse alopecia areata or alopecia areata incognita. Severe forms of this autoimmune disorder can cause baldness on the scalp and all over the body but the follicles remain alive so there is always potential for regrowth.

Rogaine for Women Thinning Hair Treatment – How Women Can Save Money on Rogaine or Minoxidil

Are you tired of your thinning hair? Is your part getting wider and wider? Do you refuse to have photos taken without a hat because your hair loss is embarrassing you? Rogaine for women can help – but it's expensive. Here are a few tricks on how you may be able to make your hair grow thicker again and save on the proven thinning hair treatment.

The thinning hair treatment for women with the largest name and the widest name recognition is Rogaine for women, which is now also sold under the generic name Minoxidil. Originally released just for men, it has long since been approved for women as well.

Why Rogaine For Women Is Often More Expensive

The problem? No matter which version you choose, you have to keep using it if you want to keep your newly regrown hair from falling out again! And that can add up when it comes to price.

Women in particular may feel frustrated when they go to their local supermarket or drugstore. Often, they discover specials for the male version while there are not any equivalent bargains for Rogaine for women.

Recently, for example, I saw a 3-month supply of the generic Minoxidil for men on sale for only $ 19.95, while that was also the price for a 1-month supply of Minoxidil for women, with Rogaine for women being even more expensive.

How To Save On Rogaine Or Minoxidil (And How Not To)

Inequitable pricing like that could unfortunately tempt you into buying the male version. This was okay back when both versions contained the same 2% of the active ingredient.

Now, however, Rogaine for men contains 5% of Minoxidil. Cool, you may think. More bang for the buck.

Well, maybe not. With a little online research, you'll find that women using the male version could suffer side effects that they had not bargained for, including excess facial hair.

But there is a way that you could use the male version without courting undue trouble and save a whole lot of money too. All you need to do is dilute it.

The active ingredients are mostly alcohol, along with a very small percentage of distilled water. So you could mix up a concoction with the right percentage of the active ingredient by simply increasing the alcohol level.

Step-By-Step Instructions to Big Savings

Get an empty dropper bottle, add two parts of the original stuff and 3 parts alcohol, and the result should be very close to the real thing – Rogaine for women. That way, you'll be able to buy the men's bargain versions and save right off the bat.

And then, you'll even get more than twice the use from it. How cool is that! This means you get two-and-a-half months of thinning hair treatment from each bottle, without paying the high price tag of Rogaine for women!
