3 Available Solutions for Thinning Hair


Hair loss specialist

Hair: it?s something everyone has, yet the experience of having hair is far from universal. Some people never have to worry about their hair, while others spend hundreds of dollars a year in managing it — while still others are left wondering where their hair has gone.

Hair loss is common; likely more common than you think. Hair loss can be a result of changing hormones, or it can be a result of a change in medication. Exacerbating the problem is how long it can take to recognize that hair loss is even occurring — balding only becomes quite visible after people have lost about 50% of their scalp covering.

If you?ve noticed that your hair has started to thin quite a bit and doesn?t seem to be gaining volume anytime soon, what can you do? Here are a few tips.

Just Say No to the Combover

You may have wondered why so many people ever thought combovers would work, or look good — until hair loss happened to you, and suddenly it seems like a novel solution to your problems. From the front as you look in a mirror, a combover seems to adequately cover. It?s only when viewed from all sides that it reveals itself for what it is: a sham. While you consider your options, your best bet is to get a short, clean cut. This will make it harder for people to notice your hair is thinning and will knock a few years off from your general appearance.

Scalp Micropigmentation

Are you someone who aggressively rolls your eyes at the suggestion of putting product into your hair everyday in order to create the effect of volume? If you want a simple solution to hairloss that isn?t going to require a lot of work, consider micropigmentation. This is when a specialist mimics the appearance of hair on your scalp by essentially placing a tattoo there. Even if you have longer hair, this can effectively mask the appearance of a lighter scalp — especially if your skin is light but you have naturally darker hair.

FUE Hair Replacement

Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, is one of the most popular hair transplant options today. Why? Because it takes very small sections of scalp to transplant — each section often continues only a few hair strands — it heals more quickly, and doesn?t have obvious scarring afterward. Hair replacement clinics recommend this option for patients who really want the feel and appearance of actual hair — and it?s certainly a more comfortable option than a toupee.
