The Devastating Psychological Effects On Hair Loss In Women

By Alice Shellington

As a young girl the word tomorrow never had much meaning to me. Life had infinite possibilities. Going to college and playing outside with my mates was my biggest worries. If you are past the age of 35 you're going to relate to what I am going to say next.

At present I'm a 42 year old lady with 2 children, and a wonderful husband. I thought my life was perfect. Then one day as I was going through my morning programme I spotted that my hair was thinning. I presumed, well, maybe its stress. The children are older and more rebellious, and I remembered reading somewhere that stressed caused alopecia. I really didn't give it much more thought.

Roughly 30 Days Later

Here I was standing in the mirror once more. I was almost certain that my hair was thinning, and it needed to be more than simply stress. As I went through my day, I felt as if everyone that I faced spotted my thinning hair. My self-esteem has never been so low. My life was curving out of control. I began to distance myself from my youngsters, my partner, and my co-workers.

I began trying every OTC treatment attainable on the market. I was consistently online hunting for miracle solutions. I tried at least a 6 hair styles. For awhile that caused me to feel slightly better, but the truth is my hair was continuing to fall out.

I read online that dying your hair a lighter color was a good strategy to cover up thinning hair. It was suppose to make an illusion the hair was more dense. It appeared to work for awhile, but the reality is the actual facts.

After work one day, my husband was sitting at the table. He asked if I'd sit down. I thought to myself this was it. I had been so cold that he was going to ask me for a divorce. To my amazement he'd been doing research on baldness restoration. He knew what I was going through without me ever saying a word to him about it. He explained the advantages and drawbacks to me about the process.

Six Months After Having a Hair Transplant

My hair looked stunning, and the better part was it was my natural hair. It actually looked better now than it probably did before it started thinning. I highly recommend hair restoration to anyone subjected to thinning hair.

Looking backwards over everything, I was amazed to find out the psychological effects that baldness had on me. Thinning hair nearly demolished my life.

Eyebrow Restoration: The Untold Truth

By Rene Brown

No one every notices your eyebrows, unless you do not have any. Therefore if you're one of those individuals who are suffering from thinning eyebrows, you are fortunate. Thanks to current day technology eyebrow restoration has become highly cost-effective. The process will aid you in achieving a natural brow line as well as touch up areas where there may be some baldness.

What Is Eyebrow Restoration?

Eyebrow restoration is a surgical procedure designed to permanently restore and/or customize the appearance of the eyebrows. It was initially meant for burn victims and patients of diseases that stop hair from growing in the eyebrow region. Eyebrow restoration surgeries - or transplants - have since developed into a cosmetic procedure preferred by folk wishing to have perfect eyebrows.

Some standard hair restoration surgeons offer eyebrow restorations also. Both procedures should be only performed by certified surgeons who focus on hair and eyebrow transplantation.

The most popular hair and eyebrow restoration surgery strategy is follicular unit transplantation, which involves the removal of donor follicles from the back of the patient's head (where hair is more permanent). Once removed, the "donor area" is then stitched back up with no identifiable scars. The donor follicles are then transplanted into the "areas of difficulty" of the patient's scalp.

The most important aspect of transplanting eyebrows is to follow the natural hair direction awfully closely. This entails extraordinarily delicate angle changes to recreate the fan-like splay of hair at the medial aspect of the brow and the converging hair direction as one moves laterally along the brow. Most importantly, the recipient sites for the hairs should be made with a very fine-gauge needle that literally slides along the outer layer of the skin as the sites are being made, as this will insure the hair will lie as flat as practical on the surface of the skin as it grows.
