There are different ways to restore hair. If you’ve struggled with hair loss, then you’ve probably come across a bunch of them. We also understand that you’re looking for a significant change, and you want it as soon as possible.
That’s exactly what we want to offer you. But not without telling you first why. We want our clients to make informed decisions, so you can better weigh your options. So, if you’re not yet familiar with hair replacement systems, or maybe you need more convincing, check out these 5 reasons why it would be a wise next step.
1. Home remedies don’t always make a home run when it comes to results
DIY Treatments are the easiest and most convenient options you have for hair loss. From grocery staples, to concoctions you can whip up from your own kitchen, the list is long and they’re easier to adapt into your routine.
Some common home remedies that you might’ve encountered are diet and lifestyle modifications. Some may not hit the nail on the head, but these are generally good for the body and the benefits can extend to your hair.
Your cupboard can also be a treasure trove of DIY solutions. Pumpkin seed oil, onion juice, eggs, and apple cider vinegar are some of the unconventional ingredients that are teeming with hair benefits. More mainstream remedies include coconut oil, aloe vera, and castor oil. These are traditional panaceas that can be applied to your hair to help boost hair growth, control hair fall, and improve hair quality.
Some of these treatments may have been passed on for generations, and they may be worth their salt, but the catch is that it takes a long time to see results. Even if they make some degree of improvement, you have to be patient enough to see it work.
2. Hair loss shampoos can only “scratch” the surface
Hair loss shampoos are also popular options because they can be easily incorporated into your daily routine. But these are most effective for scalp conditions like seborrheic dermatitis (dandruff) or psoriasis. These conditions are linked to hair loss because it involves scalp inflammation, and there are shampoos that can help reduce that.
Unfortunately most hair loss shampoos that you’ll find online or in pharmacies are missing the key ingredient that treats scalp issues – ketoconazole. Besides that, these shampoos should also contain ingredients like zinc, biotin, niacin and keratin, which have been tested and found to work. However, there hasn’t been enough studies which show that a single shampoo, hair lotion, or clay mask can cure hair loss.
If you’re open to unconventional formulas in your hair care products in a bid to beat hair loss while in the shower, a caffeine shampoo is the latest trend to hit the market. But, despite its impressive claims, caffeine shampoos are not proven to negate the effects of the hormones that cause androgenetic hair loss, or male pattern baldness.
To counteract this problem, you should rely on your own research. Look at reviews and before-and-after pictures. Although these are only anecdotal, they can tell you which products are more likely to work.
3. OTC Topical Remedies don’t necessarily get to the root of the problem
Still up for something that you can just apply and go? Convenience and affordability are the main reasons why over-the-counter topical remedies are also crowd favorites. Take note that these are not medications, rather, these are serums, oils, or creams that promise hair regrowth. It just takes one online search and you can find a long list of options.
These topical remedies may seem like an easier and safer option than surgery or medications, but successful results are not guaranteed. In fact, most of these products may not even be FDA-approved.
While there may be some that stand out from the lot, their effects are often subtle and it can take a long time for it to make obvious changes. Generally, these formulas are based on natural ingredients, so the effects may not be as dramatic as you would like.
Adding to that, these remedies also lack important scientific information. They may seem pretty harmless, but some products lack governmental control about their purity. Take fish oil for instance. It’s touted to be beneficial for hair growth, but a lot of those sold in the market have questionable formulas.
4. Medications can be a double-edged sword
Hair loss medications are often the first line of defense that are prescribed to men and women with hair thinning or baldness. Now, these products are reliable in that they are backed by solid evidence to support their claims.
Minoxidil and Finasteride are two of the well-known hair loss medications that have been used for several years now. Unfortunately, with medications, you need to take the good with the bad. Besides its therapeutic action, side effects are a given, and these can get pretty serious. Finasteride for instance is linked to sexual side effects such as impotence, abnormal ejaculation, and loss of libido.
Medications can control further hair loss and encourage new hair growth. But, you also have to decide if the benefits outweigh the risks.
5. Hair transplant may be permanent but it will take long to get results
Hair transplant surgery is an option for those who want a permanent outcome. It’s an invasive procedure for restoring hair that has been backed by studies and years of successful results. It involves harvesting your own hairs from “donor areas” and transplanting them into balding or thinning spots.
When you have a good surgeon in your case, natural-looking results can be guaranteed. With adequate preparation and patient selection, a hair transplant can give you a bang for your buck!
However, as attractive as it may sound, one of the major drawbacks about hair transplant is that it’s not for everyone. First of all, it’s not cheap and all for good reason. It requires a highly skilled and specialised surgeon to perform it. You also need to have enough donor hairs to be a good candidate. Lastly, the waiting game to get full hair regrowth can take several months.
It’s not bad at all, but if you want quick results that you can enjoy as soon as possible, there’s also an option for that too! That’s where hair replacement systems come in.
Here’s why you should consider Hair Replacement Systems
A hair replacement system is a temporary, but long-lasting solution that can help customers enjoy results at the soonest time possible. If this alternative is new territory for you, here are some reasons why you should take it into consideration.
• Hair replacement systems are non-surgical
The main advantage of hair replacement systems is that even without surgery, you can still enjoy results that are aesthetically comparable. Surgery comes with many complications—from the potential side effects of anaesthetics, to the risk of infection, or the possibility of scarring. With a hair replacement system, the risks are minimal. Other than rare allergic reactions to the adhesives, there’s no other known side effects with this alternative.
• Hair replacement systems guarantee quick results
Home remedies, medications, topical treatments, and hair transplant take time to give you the outcome you want. As mentioned above, all of them can take months to achieve the desired results. Meanwhile, hair replacement systems show instant results unless you need a customised hair replacement system which will take only weeks to create.
• Non-surgical hair replacement is customisable
Another good thing about hair replacement systems is that you don’t leave anything to chance. At Aremyhair, we design natural-looking hair pieces customised to your specifics. You get the volume and style you want as opposed to just waiting on how your hair grows, based on how you react to a treatment or product. With our hairpieces, you get what you want, when you need it.
