How difficult it is to resist the temptation of finger licking fries or those mouth-watering burgers or cheese bursting out of your favorite pizza and above all, those glistening pastries looking heavenly! All of us get tempted and it’s not humanly possible to completely desist from these luring foods but what is essential is to understand not to become addicted to them. The secret of staying healthy and having healthy hair is to enjoy these temptations in moderation keeping in mind the harmful effects of them, if consumed regularly.

These ‘junk’ foods have been linked to high fat and high cholesterol and several studies have proved them to be one of the hair fall reasons. These impact the overall health ushering in problems like obesity, heart, skin and hair issues. Today high cholesterol along with high fat is detected as a common factor in more than 70% of people coming for hair fall treatment.

Is all cholesterol bad?

Is all cholesterol bad?

A misconception arising out of ignorance has given rise to the myth that all cholesterol is bad. You need to junk this myth and be informed that it exists in every cell and plays a very crucial part in essential functions of the body like production of hormones and digestion of food.

There are two types of cholesterol and one of them is good and the other bad! Know to differentiate the good from the bad!

# HDL or Good Cholesterol:

HDL or High-density lipoproteins has been labelled as good as it takes care of some essential functions of the body. It transports all toxins and wastes back to the liver where it is reprocessed. It also counters the ‘bad’ cholesterol- LDL. High HDL is good for your health.



# LDL or Bad Cholesterol:

LDL or Low-density lipoproteins are responsible for transporting fat molecules throughout the body. It is the high ratio of this which hampers your health especially the heart. It forms a plaque in the heart arteries affecting the smooth flow of the blood, leading to high blood pressure and many times resulting in life threatening heart attack.

Studies over decades have come to a conclusion that high levels of LDL lead to hair loss as it affects the overall health of the sufferer. Even the medications used to counter high levels of LDL have been seen to affect hairs health adversely.

Causes of high ldl levels:

  1. Unhealthy Diet
  2. Obesity
  3. Sedentary life
  4. Diabetes
  5. Smoking

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.
