"Have you lost your hair?" has become a new focus in recent years. There are two types of hair loss, one is "physiological alopecia" and the other is "pathological alopecia".
Let's start with normal hair loss (ie, physiological hair loss).
The total number of hairs per person is about 100,000, of which 10% are in the telogen phase, and after the telogen phase ends, they begin to fall out. Normal adults shed 50 to 150 hairs per day, all of which are hairs in the degenerative and telogen phases. Since the hairs entering the telogen phase and the new entering growth phase are constantly in a dynamic balance, they can maintain a normal number of hairs; most of the physiological hair loss can be recovered naturally, and the most typical representative is "postpartum hair loss".
Let's talk about pathological hair loss.
This needs treatment to get better. According to the "pathogenic" cause, we temporarily divide "pathological alopecia" into the following 3 types to facilitate your understanding: ① Mediterranean hair loss: also known as androgenic alopecia, it mostly occurs in people with strong sebaceous glands and has a certain family history. ② Cicatricial alopecia: Hair no longer grows due to local skin disease or damage to scalp hair follicles. ③ Alopecia areata: commonly known as ghost shaving, limited hair loss area, may recur repeatedly, it is necessary to rule out possible other systemic diseases.
If you are unfortunate enough to lose your hair at a young age, don’t worry, there is still help!
At present, after hair loss occurs, people generally use the following methods: using daily chemical products (claiming to have hair growth function), hair transplant, drug treatment, going to the hospital for laser treatment, or simply wearing a wig.
Of course, these methods have their own advantages and disadvantages. Daily chemical line products are easy to use, but their efficacy is weak; hair transplant surgery is expensive and has high requirements on the health of the hair transplant recipient, and also has to endure pain; the current FDA-certified effective topical ingredient for drug treatment is minoxidil Er and finasteride are currently used on a large scale in the treatment of alopecia areata and androgenetic alopecia, but the problem is that it requires long-term medication to maintain the curative effect, and there are obvious side effects; the laser treatment carried out by the hospital is a systematic project, although the curative effect is clear, However, patients have to go in and out of the hospital repeatedly, and the treatment cycle is long, which is not a small threshold for most people.
In addition to medicines and hair transplants, you can directly use hair loss to cover the artifact - "wigs" are not impossible ~ but remember to clean and disinfect the wigs regularly, and be careful not to oppress the local scalp, otherwise you may be "bald" instead.
It is worth mentioning that low-energy laser therapy (LLLT) is the "new favorite of the times". As early as 2007, the U.S. FDA officially approved the use of LLLT devices for the treatment of androgenesis. The approved laser bands for the treatment of osmosis are 655 nm, 678 nm, and 650 nm. (Low-level laser light therapy (LLLT) may be beneficial in men with androgenetic alopecia, according to UpToDate. A randomized trial evaluating the effect of LLLT hair growth combs for androgenetic alopecia found that it was significantly different from patients receiving sham treatment.) Compared to the LLLT hair growth comb, patients treated for 26 weeks experienced a significant increase in terminal hair density. More research is needed to determine the optimal treatment regimen and the durability of this treatment response. LLLT has also been used to treat androgenogenicity in women's hair loss.)
More and more clinical trials tell us that LLLT can make hair grow more vigorously, and improve the greasy condition of the scalp, thereby reducing the probability of hair loss; and LLLT has been used clinically for many years, with very low adverse event reports and no serious adverse events. LLLT can be arranged when multiple approaches are combined.
For example, Bluekiee's low-energy laser hair growth cap has a laser band of 650 nm. With it, you only need to wear a hat for half an hour as usual, and it will not affect your daily work at all.
There are 81 laser diodes hidden in the hat, these little diodes can tell you that when energized, they can completely cover the main hair loss area, and use the LLLT low energy laser technology at home to help improve androgenetic alopecia (only for males and females).
Its hair growth principle is to use LLLT laser technology to directly deliver energy to the hair follicle mitochondria, so that the hair follicle cells can generate ATP (adenosine triphosphate) required for cell growth, thereby promoting hair growth. The 650 nm laser band can penetrate deep into the subcutaneous cells and provide the energy needed for the regeneration of hair follicle cells.
At present, topical minoxidil or oral finasteride is the most effective treatment method in clinical practice. For those who do not want to take medication or cannot take medication, LLLT can be used as one of the adjuvant treatments. LLLT alone will also work, and minoxidil is more effective.
With it, you can wear it for 30 minutes every other day, just like wearing a hat as usual, without taking up your work and lifetime at all. The advantage of a hat is that it is not as heavy as a helmet. Even the inner cap is 250 g, which is about the same weight as a winter hat. It's not painful or itchy, just a slight heat sensation.
It is enough to wear it on the head so generously every day. It really grows hair secretly, and then surprises everyone. However, I would like to remind you of 2 points: the period of madness still exists after use, and it is only effective if you persist for a long time! It takes more than 3 months.
Hair loss, early treatment, and early happiness, the later the more serious. If you are suffering from hair loss and it is not severe, try it now.
