If you’re losing your hair, you might find comfort in two things.
One: You are not alone. More than 80% of men and nearly 50% of women will lose a lot of hair at some point in their lives. Losing your hair is a common problem, so you are not alone dealing with it.
Two: You have more than one way to stop hair loss and get hair to grow back. At Bergen County Hair Loss in Bergen County, NJ, our professional team offers a number of good ways to get hair back.
Read on to find out what might be causing your hair loss and what you can do about it.
Why do people lose hair?
Most people have between 100,000 and 150,000 hairs on their heads. Normal hair growth causes most healthy people to lose up to 100 hairs a day, and new hair grows in to replace them.
Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss, which happens when your hair falls out more often than it grows back. Several things can cause this to happen. There are some obvious causes, like chemotherapy, but there are also other things that can cause it, like genetics, an unusual amount of stress, hairstyles that pull your hair tight (like tight braids or ponytails), changes in hormones, and lack of nutrients.
To figure out why you are losing hair, your doctor may order blood tests, look closely at your scalp, and ask you a lot of questions about your health and any possible triggers.
What is restoring hair?
Depending on why your hair is falling out, hair restoration may be able to help you grow it back. At Bergen County Hair Loss, our team focuses not on surgical options like a hair transplant, but on natural treatments that get to the root causes of your hair loss. The goal is to wake up your hair follicles that have been dormant so that your hair can grow back thicker, fuller, and healthier than ever. This will also boost your confidence.
What can be done to help?
Depending on your situation, we look at your metabolism, your environment, nutritional deficiencies, and even hormone imbalance. We offer PRP therapy and Nutrafol vitamin supplements as ways to treat people.
PRP is plasma full of platelets. Your doctor will take PRP from your blood and inject it into the area where you want hair to grow. PRP is full of growth factors, which tell your body to start making new skin cells and hair.
Nutrafol vitamin supplements are full of things that help your body grow new hair and also help your body grow new hair. The supplements help keep your hormones in balance, improve your diet, and support your health as a whole. If you use these along with PRP therapy, you may get even better results.
