There are times when we start fretting that our hair has stopped growing or slowed down. On an average our hair grows a little less than half an inch every month and if the growth rate slows, it’s an indication that some factor is adversely affecting the health of the hair.

Hair’s health, like all other parts of our body, depends on our overall well-being. The hair follicles, which are deep rooted in the scalp, take their nourishment from a network of capillaries.

There are numerous constituents that influence our hair’s health - let’s discuss 9 salient aspects that play a critical role in impacting the rate at which the hair grows.


FACTOR 1: HEALTHY BODY ENSURES ROBUST HAIR GROWTH: most critical factor influencing hair growth is the general health of the person. A balanced diet, which fulfills all the nourishment requirements of the follicles, is most beneficial, resulting in robust hair growth. Any deficiency of iron, vitamins, zinc or protein will lead to hair fall & slow growth.

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.
