Hair Extensions Have Become Increasingly Popular With Those Wanting To Achieve Instantly Thicker And Longer Locks

Hair extensions have become increasingly popular with those wanting to achieve instantly thicker and longer locks. However, specialists are warning of the hairy effects extensions can have on seemingly magnificent manes.

Extensions are made from either real or artificial hair which are woven into the natural hair and then glued or heat-sealed to stay in place. Whereas they are seen as a way to get long hair instantly or disguise thinning locks and hair loss, extensions often break off because they are too heavy.

Damage to existing hair strands can lead to premature shedding and even leaving temporary, or in rare cases, permanent bald patches.

Celebrities like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera have been spotted with conspicuous bald patches from repeatedly dying and adding extensions to their thinning thatches. The damage caused by hair extensions will, in most cases, correct themselves. However in cases where the damage is so severe it resembles alopecia areata.

Dr Peter Williams from The Hospital Group said: “For both women and men the loss of hair can be a very emotional experience. The Hospital Group can provide an advice service about the best steps forward for people who want to change the way they feel about their hair loss.

Hair transplants for women are becoming more popular- the techniques have advanced and women are now keen to benefit from the amazing results of hair restoration, which The Hospital Group can offer.”

Providing expert advice and assistance, The Hospital Group carries out more hair transplantations than any other clinic in the UK, recognising that hair restoration is an art just as much as a surgical procedure.

Menopause Blamed For Rise In Receding Hair

Hair loss is often the hardest aspect of growing old, but for a number of people the problem is not confined to their later years.

And it’s not just men suffering from the affliction, with studies suggesting an increasingly number of post-menopausal women are finding their hairlines receding.

This new epidemic is a type of alopecia, which damages hair follicles so that hair falls out and cannot grow back.

The condition known as Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia (FFA) can cause women to lose up to five inches from their hairline as well as their eyebrows. If FFA goes undiagnosed, women can even lose hair at the sides and back of their head.

Scientists believe that FFA is a result of the immune system attacking hair follicles, which causes inflammation at the root. This can damage stem cells in the follicles and prevents hair from growing back entirely.

The only treatment available involves controlling this inflammation, so only offers a reduction in overall hair loss rather than a cure.

However, the damage for most has already been done and the only alternative is to undergo a hair transplant.

The Hospital Group, one of the country’s leading cosmetic surgery providers, is at the forefront of hair restoration surgery, treatments and techniques. Those seeking a solution to their hair loss can undergo a hair transplant, which involves splitting the follicles of existing hairs and relocating them in the sparse area.

Providing expert advice and assistance, The Group carries out more hair transplantations than any other clinic in the UK and recognises that hair restoration is an art just as much as a surgical procedure.

Since The Hospital Group was established in 1992, it has grown from a small pharmaceutical company to one of the UK’s foremost weight loss surgery providers.
