Hair is considered to be the most crucial aspect of one’s charismatic personality and balding can be a major turn off for most people.

Hair loss may cause low self-esteem and damage your confidence. Even though hair loss is genetic but in this era of intensive antagonism, a person is subjected to high level of stress which subsidizes the loss of hair even more rapidly.

However, before opting for the hair transplant procedure, here are a few facts a
person should be familiar with.

1. Right Candidate To Get A Hair Transplant:

This is important to understand what makes one appropriate to undergo a hair
transplant. A person whose hair loss is stabilized is the perfect candidate to go
through the procedure, since hair transplant surgery does not stop hair loss
progression.

Surgical hair restoration, regardless of technique or technology, is a
procedure limited by your own hair loss advancement. That’s why it is advised to
not get a hair transplant surgery at a young age or when hair loss has just
commenced. Consequently, if hair transplant is performed at an early stage, it may
accelerate hair loss.

2. Hair Transplant Is Not A Miracle:

Before going for a hair transplant surgery, it is important to prepare your mind
that regrowth of hair is different for every person. Your hair transplant surgery
depends on the quantity of hair you have in your donor area.

Also, getting a hair transplant does not guarantee you a head full of dense hair. It utterly relies upon the degree of baldness and contributor area of your head. Hair transplant cannot cure the ample baldness. Consequently, it should not be accounted that a hair
transplant surgery would prove to be a miracle and you will get a head full of
thicker hair.

3. Transplanted Hair Can Be Treated Like Normal Hair:

You can treat your transplanted hair just like usual hair, once it starts growing.
Transplanted hair is no different than the natural hair. Hair transplantation
motivates a person to gain back the confidence lost after hair loss. You can style it
just as you wish. It does not need any special care. Transplanted hair can be
washed and treated just like natural hair. You can get it styled just the way you
like.

4. Hair Transplant Is Permanent:

It is best to do your research about hair transplant techniques before going for
hair restoration because it is a surgical method to cure your hair loss enduringly.
Hair is taken from the permanent recipient area and transferred onto the bald
area. Since, the hair is taken and relocated it makes the hair transplant a
permanent process. You cannot go for a trial to do transplantation on a smaller
area of your head. Once you start the technique you are bound to go through the
complete procedure.

5. Emergence Of Transplanted Hair:

The transplanted hair does not fall out. Once the regrowth has commenced, it
becomes a permanent part of your scalp. The new hair progressively appears
after four months of the transplantation. After an eight month time period, around  80% of the hair emerge. Growth at the crown area usually takes even more time. At this
time, it is best to follow the post-surgery precautions as directed by the surgeon.

6. Post-Surgery Precautions Are Vital:

While planning your surgery keep in mind that you cannot go back to your normal
routine as soon as possible. It requires several days to rest and to take extensive
care of your transplanted area. After the surgery, you have to follow certain
safety measures. You can sleep on your back only, you cannot let your head touch
anywhere specially at the area where implantation is carried out because the
follicles are extremely fragile after the surgery. It is recommend to wear a shower
cap as a post-surgery precaution.

Product Review: Parachute Weak Hair Repair Oil

27 Apr

11164081_10152703006115946_286840161_n

This is one product I had to review to facilitate people suffering from hair loss and damaged hair, especially new mommies who fall victim to postpartum hair loss. Multiple dyeing attempts and pregnancy wreaked havoc on my, otherwise, healthy hair. They went from long, lustrous locks to weak, damaged strands with lots of split ends. I absolutely lost all hope to regain healthy and shiny hair until I saw this product at a supermarket a few weeks back. It is a special hair oil recipe that uses 100 % natural oils and herb extracts to restore the internal structure of hair and to strengthen weak and thin hair.

These natural oils include:

  1. Coconut Oil: For deep penetration to guarantee nourishment to 100% of all hair
  2. Castor Oil: Forms a protective layer around each hair strand for increased hair volume and thickness
  3. Black Seed: Provides nourishment and health to weak hair
  4. Sedr Plant: Restores hair health through vitamins and minerals

My Verdict:

It works! Yes, you read it right. It does work to strengthen hair and reduce hair fall up to 80%. You’ll observe smooth, non-frizzy and voluminous hair even after first use. The smell is pleasant and the formulation is non-greasy, unlike other oils. The only turn-off for me is that it doesn’t wash off completely after one wash but since it is not greasy and doesn’t smell bad so this is not much of a problem. Also, it is not expensive at all. I’d give it 4 stars out of 5.

This product works for me and is now a significant part of my hair care routine. How do you keep your hair healthy? Don’t forget to give in your two cents.
