PRP For Hair Loss - Know More!

Hair loss is a prime concern for many men and women these days – whether it is genetic, due to stress, bad haircare or any medical condition. But with advances in the field and adequate research, various new techniques have cropped up in the market which can combat the condition with ease. Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP, is showing impressive results in reversing hair loss. 

PRP is a non-surgical therapeutic hair restoration option. It is suitable for both men and women. It is a state-of-the-art, totally natural, alternative medical procedure used for the treatment of hair loss or hair thinning. It is an injectable treatment which uses the patient’s own blood.  

PRP has been in use in the medical field for two decades and offers some promising potential for stimulating hair growth. However, no definitive studies yet exist that confirms its efficacy.

Advantages of PRP Therapy-

PRP can be helpful in:

  1. slowing the rate of hair loss
  2. regrowing thinning hair to be thicker and full
  3. boosting the health and condition of the scalp
  4. stimulating collagen levels
  5. preparing the scalp for hair transplantation & post hair transplantation

PRP can also assist in the treatment of skin and scalp conditions such as:

  1. dry, itchy and inflamed scalp
  2. genetic hair loss
  3. alopecia areata
  4. telogen effluvium (commonly caused by stress)

 How PRP Works?

The scalp is cleansed and numbing cream applied. While the scalp is prepared, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient. This blood is then centrifuged to produce the Platelet Rich Plasma. The PRP component is taken from the blood and injected or infused into the scalp or areas of hair loss.  Patients are able to resume normal activities after this procedure.  

PRP harnesses the growth factors carried in the blood supply and then delivers a concentrated dose back to the affected scalp and hair follicles. The growth factors in the platelets stimulate the follicles to grow hair. The hair follicles in the resting phase (telogen) may be pushed into growth, and this will appear as new hair growth.

Who is a candidate for PRP?
Men or women who have early stages male or female pattern baldness are suitable candidates for PRP.  It is also suitable for men or women who are currently using hair loss medications; or those who are experiencing or expect to experience post-partum hair loss. It is also suitable for those who have had or plan to have hair transplant surgery

However, you are not a candidate for PRP if you:

  • Have medical conditions such as chronic liver disease, skin diseases or cancer, metabolic and systemic disorders
  • Have undergone anti-coagulation therapy
  • If you have any type of platelet dysfunction syndromes

Hair Loss - How Can Homeopathy Subdue It?

Hair Loss - How Can Homeopathy Subdue It?

Actually, it’s totally normal to lose some hair each day. Most people lose about 50 to 100 hairs every day – and it’s a good thing because we’d all look like huge hairballs if we didn’t! Normally, when hair falls out, new hairs start forming in the same place as the old ones. But when someone really has hair loss, the hairs don’t grow back. Or they do grow, but there aren’t enough of them to take the place of what’s already fallen out.

Causes of hair fall

A number of things can cause excessive hair loss. For example, about 3 or 4 months after an illness or a major surgery, you may suddenly lose a large amount of hair. This hair loss is related to the stress of the illness and is temporary.

Hormonal problems may cause hair loss. If your thyroid gland is overactive or underactive, your hair may fall out. Many women notice hair loss about three months after they’ve had a baby. Some medicines can cause hair loss eg. Birth control pills and antidepressants. This type of hair loss improves when you stop taking the medicine. Children may have hair loss caused by a fungal infection of the scalp.

The term “common baldness” usually means male-pattern baldness. Male-pattern baldness is the most common cause of hair loss in men. Men who have this type of hair loss usually have inherited the trait. Men who start losing their hair at an early age tend to develop more extensive baldness. In male-pattern baldness, hair loss typically results in a receding hairline and baldness on the top of the head.

Alopecia Areata is another condition where one starts losing hair in patches. Cause for it is not clear, it is thought to be a misfired immune response of the body.

Besides these, lifestyle, erratic meal habits, excessive junk food, anxiety, stress and inadequate sleep may trigger hair fall.

Tips for Taking Right hair Care

  • If you want to keep hair healthy, start by feeding it from the inside out.
  • Balanced Diet for Healthy Hair
  • Eating a diet that has lots of vitamins, minerals and a well-balanced one will make hair strong and shiny.
  • Extra Care while Combing
  • Be careful when you’re combing your hair after washing it because it’s extra delicate when it’s wet.

Avoid Chemical Damage

Go easy on the styling products and straightners, which can damage hair and make it weak.

Tie Them Loose

When you’re combing or brushing your hair, do it gently, and keep braids and ponytails loose so they don’t hurt your hair by pulling it too tightly.

Best Homeopathic treatment for hair loss

Most of the hair loss conditions can be very effectively treated with homeopathy. The treatment depends on the causative factor and the constitution of the patient as well. Losing hair after prolonged illness responds effectively to homeopathic medicine Carbo Vegetablis. Hair loss after delivery can be treated with Sulphur and Lycopodium. Alopecia areata also has an effective treatment in Homoeopathy and can be treated with Acid Flouricum and Phosphorus. Though it may take a while before one sees appreciable results.

In male-pattern baldness, hair loss typically results in a receding hairline and baldness on the top of the head. Homeopathic Medicines help in slowing or preventing the development of common baldness. Complete Reversal of male pattern baldness with homeopathy is a debatable topic. Among other homeopathic medicines, Lycopodium has been found very useful in this kind of hair loss.

Hair Loss - Can Ayurveda Help?

More and more people are turning towards Ayurveda for their hair loss problem. Hair loss can be embarrassing and hamper one's self-esteem and confidence. When treated early hair loss can be reduced and even stopped completely.

Ayurvedic consideration:

Ayurveda believes that hair fall control is very much associated to the body type and also the stability of your mind body structure. Ayurveda considers the hair as a byproduct for bone formation. The tissues, which are responsible for formation of bones are also responsible for your hair growth. Hair fall is considered to be a problem of pitta dosha in Ayurveda and excess of Pitta dosha in the body is the chief cause of hair problems. Ayurvedic hair loss treatment measures are known for their effectiveness. Usually the Ayurvedic treatment for hair loss includes diet, meditation, yoga, and yes, we cannot forget medicated herbal oil massage. 

Ayurvedic Dietary Recommendations for Hair Loss Treatment:

As hair fall is considered a problem of pitta dosha, you need to identify the bad eating habits that are contributing to the increase of pitta in your body.

Pitta is increased by excessive intake of tea, coffee, alcohol, meats and excessive smoking. Pitta is also aggravated by eating too much fried, oily, greasy, spicy, sour, and acidic foods.

Ayurvedic Herbs recommended for Hair Loss Treatment:

  2. Brahmi: This hair pack is available in most Indian grocery stores and used with curd is an excellent hair pack.

  3. Amla: Indian gooseberry is packed with Vitamin C and thus loaded with antioxidants. In powdered form it can be mixed with henna, brahmi powders along with curd to make a great hair pack.

  4. Neem: This is a natural remedy against dandruff and lice and also has blood purifying abilities. Use in powdered form with coconut oil or curd to massage scalp.

  5. Ritha: These are natural soap nuts that are used for cleaning hair without stripping off the natural oils. Use in powdered form to massage scalp and wash off thoroughly.

  6. Ashwagandha: Weak immune system is one of the factors for hair loss. Ashwagandha makes you feel energized and healthier. It stops stress, increases vigor and helps regrow lost hair.

This list can go on and on, however, when seeking treatment for hair loss, the doctor will be able to identify the underlying cause and suggest an appropriate treatment.

  1. Hair oil massage: Coconut oil, almond oil, castor oil, gooseberry oil, and olive oil can all be used to provide nourishment to the hair. These restore moisture and nourish the scalp and help in restoring hair growth. For best results, use warm oil and apply slight pressure on the scalp. Repeating this process weekly will ensure best results.
