Just like the roots of a plant promote its growth, hair follicles are responsible for the growth of healthy hair. Shedding a lot of hair can happen due to the presence of weak hair follicles and it can also worsen into hair thinning because of dead hair follicles.

Oil glands known as the sebaceous glands are connected to the hair follicles that are responsible for producing a fatty substance called sebum which reaches the scalp via the follicle. This oil is responsible for keeping the follicle and the scalp nourished.

If the hair follicles are not nourished properly they can die which will ultimately lead to loss of hair. However, even if the hair follicles have been damaged or have become dormant, there are various methods for hair follicle regrowth to stop the situation from worsening.

Read with us to gather information on new hair follicle growth, hair follicle transplant and the processes for stimulating hair follicles.

Can Dead Hair Follicles Be Revived?

It is possible to revive dead hair follicles in certain cases. You must take action if you are experiencing excessive hair loss or hair thinning instantly. If the hair follicles are at an initial stage of damage, the growth phase of hair can come back.

However, if it has been a long time since the hair follicles have been dormant or have died, there stands a rare chance of reviving them. It is for this reason that hair specialists recommend that you must get a hair fall treatment started as early as possible since there is a better chance of reviving the hair follicles thereby regrowing hair.

How Long Does It Take for Hair Follicles To Die?

There is no specific time in which a hair follicle dies. The well being of a hair follicle totally depends on the nourishment it is given, both in terms of the food you eat and the nourishment you provide to your hair externally.

The time taken for a hair follicle to die depends on the present condition it is in. If your hair follicle is only dormant and you choose to take any action at that stage then there might be a possibility to revive it. The sooner you identify that your hair follicles must be treated, the lesser would be the chance of your hair follicles die.

How Can I Reactivate My Hair Follicles?

To be able to reactivate your hair follicles, you must start by identifying the cause behind why they are dying. You can book an appointment with a hair specialist to correctly identify the cause. Here are certain ways by which you can reactivate your hair follicles:

  • Balanced diet: A major source of nutrition for the hair follicles comes from what you eat. To keep the roots strong you must consume a healthy balanced diet. The essential nutrients for maintaining healthy hair follicles include Vitamin C, Omega 3 fatty acids, zinc, protein, iron, vitamin A, magnesium and selenium.
  • Treat the medical conditions: If the cause behind your inactive hair follicles is a medical condition you are undergoing, you must treat it first. Medical conditions like chemotherapies can make a person lose hair rapidly. Therefore, you need to get to the root of the problem if you want to have good results.

    Treat the medical conditions

  • Minimise consuming greasy food: Greasy food can lead to blood vessels being clogged which makes it a big reason for affecting the hair follicle as well. Once a hair follicle gets clogged, there will be no more hair growth. Therefore, you must cut down on the consumption of greasy food as much as possible.
  • Change your lifestyle: Our lifestyle majorly impacts our health. A good lifestyle includes having a healthy diet plan, doing regular exercise, no addictions to alcohol or cigarettes and stress-free life. If a person is able to follow all these things, half the health issues would fade away on their own among which is also hair fall problems. Therefore, you must focus on ameliorating your lifestyle.
  • Medical treatment and supplements: It is important to take action quickly if your hair follicles are becoming inactive. If all the natural things are not working out for you, it might be time to seek medical advice. Surgical treatment such as laser therapy or a hair transplant can help revive the hair follicles. Further, if the situation is not too worse, a hair specialist can also prescribe you supplements that will fulfil the nutritional requirements of your hair follicles.

If you feel you need to get your hair follicles treated, now is the time to consult a hair specialist. The sooner you do it, the easier and quicker your journey would be for having a full crown back.

Can Damaged Hair Follicles Be Repaired?

Can Damaged Hair Follicles Be Repaired?

Damaged hair follicles can be repaired by either following some natural remedies or undergoing medical treatment. The best solution for you from the two can be recommended by a hair specialist depending on the current situation of your hair follicles.

If your hair follicles are in a dormant mode, going by natural remedies might help. However, if they have already died then you will have to undergo medical or surgical treatment to repair and revive them. Therefore, in both cases, there is a possibility of repairing the hair follicles.

What Kills Hair Follicles Naturally?

Lack of proper care is what naturally kills the hair follicles over a period of time. It can also lead to painful hair roots over time. If you do not follow a healthy lifestyle, exercise every day, consume a healthy diet and take care of your hair physically, it can kill hair follicles naturally.

Therefore, make sure you take care of your hair roots before it is too late for you to revive them.

What Kills Hair Follicles Permanently?

Lack of a proper hair care routine kills the hair follicles permanently. Shedding 50 to 100 hair every day is considered normal. If however, you are shedding more hair than that, it must be time to consult a hair specialist. If you do not take action immediately, it can cause permanent damage to your hair follicles.

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.
