What Should You Know Before Hair Transplantation

Hair loss or shedding is undoubtedly a natural procedure that is faced by everyone. However, sometimes (or in majority of men) excessive hair loss can be quite scary. Unfortunately, not everyone who loses hair will end up looking like a celebrity. But, here an important question arises “how much shedding should be considered normal, and at what point you need to start worrying about it?”

What You Must Know

On an average majority of people have about 100,000 hair strands on their scalp and shed around 100 to 125 strands every day (counting can be quite difficult). The medical term used for normal hair loss is known as Alopecia and it happens because the hair on your head grows in cycles. Do you know that every single hair follicle undergoes a growth stage of around two to eight years, which is also accompanied by a two-month resting stage in which no growth takes place? Afterwards, the hair strand falls out and a new one begins to grow in its place. Read more at Points to consider before hair transplant

The next two layers are ‘Cortex’ and the inner layer is ‘medulla’.

Understanding hair Life Cycle: Hair loss is a very natural phenomenon and it should happen after a certain period of time so new and healthy hair can grow. This can be explained as plants shed leaves and then when the season comes their leaves came back in full glory and the plant look healthier and fuller.

The same happens with our hair, a normal lifespan for a hair is six years, but this hair lifespan can differ from person to person and once a hair completes its lifespan, it will for sure come out of its follicle.

There is no problem if this hair life cycle continues, every time a hair falls, but at times hair follicles responsible for new hair growth shrinks and or become inactive, this is when a person experiences less hair growth on certain region of your head scalp, and you will feel as if you will go bald.
