Hair has a lifespan of about two and six years. A new one starts growing to replace it, whenever you shed a hair.

3. It’s Better to Wash Hair with Lukewarm Water

You must have heard many times that you should not use lukewarm water to wash your hair, however, the fact is that using lukewarm water to wash your hair will make them stronger. Avoid using very hot water as it can cause the head to sweat and cause trauma to the hair, in a similar way that the sun and hot electrical products can.

Targets the Older People

4. It Just Targets the Older People

People generally believe that hair loss and baldness is something that occurs only in older people. However, it’s a fact that even as male pattern baldness most often affects older men, its commencement can actually begin much earlier and younger men equally get affected.

Anxiety and stress can cause your hair to fall out, but there are some cases, where people literally start pulling out their hair. This is called trichotillomania, which is a psychiatric disorder.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
