Follicular Unit Extraction Hair Transplant

Have you heard of the Follicular Unit Extraction method of hair transplant? If you have and are ready to proceed with the hair transplant, I would like you to watch a video first:

It seems scary but you would be put under local anesthetics, you should not be able to feel any pain. The results should be promising!

Singapore Hair Transplants

If you have been bald for a long time and have not been helped by the hair treatments so far and you are contemplating for a hair transplant, then you can consider a hair transplant.

Be prepared to foot out approximately $12,000 for a hair transplant surgery. The latest method of hair transplant is the Follicular Unit Extraction, which leaves lesser scars and should be less painful, see article.

1.1 million Singaporeans balding

A Healthway Medical Group study has put the figure of Singaporeans balding at 1.1 million, see
article.The results are hardly surprising to me. As an average Singaporean, I step out of the house each day to see many male and female Singaporeans with thinning hair or balding patches and many are quite young. I also suffer from hair loss though it is now improving after I have practiced the methods taught in the E-book (see my post on 18 June 09), this balding statistic should be greater, in my opinion.

IHT 9 Hair Loss Shampoo

Over at the cyberspace, there is quite a hype over this hair loss shampoo. ‘IHT’ is the abbreviation for “Intensive Hair Treatment” and the number ‘9’ indicates that there are 9 types of herbs in this herbal shampoo.

A number of netizens have positive experiences with this hair loss shampoo. Some readers of my blog have also recommended this shampoo. 1 reader got this shampoo from a clinic, however I am not sure where the shampoo is sold in Singapore.
Any reader knows where this shampoo is sold in Singapore, please leave your comment to this post for the benefit of all hair loss sufferers, Thanks!

Hair loss cures

There are only 3 scientifically proven methods of combating hair loss: oral medication, Propecia; topical application, Minoxidil as well as hair transplants.

In the near future, this disturbing problem of hair loss may be a thing of the past with the advent of modern technology. Stem cell transplant to combat hair loss is getting some promising results on the test bed; how many years it would be before stem cell transplants become a clinical surgery available for the masses is still uncertain, but I believe one day, there will be a drug to promise a scalp full of hair!

Hair Loss Treatments

Dear all,

It has been a while since I last post. How are all of you? I am back again!

Today let me share the history of some hair loss treatments.

As you are battling with your hair loss and seeking cures to combat this dreadful disease, I would like to share with you that you are not alone in your fight against hair loss, this fight against hair loss dated back to some 4,000 years ago.

Back then, the ancient Egyptians might also have been losing hair (maybe not as common as today). A cure used around 1500 B.C was for a magic spell to be recited to the god of Sun, thereafter a mixture containing onions, iron, red lead, honey and alabaster was consumed. Whether or not it was effective, no one knew, but please do not try it today: you may lose your life!

Some 400 years after this cure, a common method to combat hair loss was gaining popularity among the masses: rubbing the fats of animals like lions, hippopotamuses, crocodiles, ibex, serpents and geese onto the scalp. Again, please do not go to the Singapore Zoo to hunt these animals, I do not want to hear another ‘white tiger mauling’ incident again.

The King of Upper and Lower Egypt consumed hair loss recipes, which are unimaginable: toes of a dog, refuse of dates, and a hoof of an ass. Though these Kings have now the essence of these animals in their bodies, most of the times, these recipes do not work.

Baldness was regarded as something shameful in ancient Egypt, with science and technology backdated then, little wonder that men and women tried all such unconventional means to regrow their hair.

It may be a solace to know that hair loss problems were experienced even in ancient Egypt, and the Kings and Royalty were not spared either! Nowadays, modern man has a myriad of hair loss treatment options, which those kings could only admire, and dream!

At those ancient times, baldness is tantamount to a man’s loss of virility, now we hear comments that bald men are ‘sexy and cute!’.

I discovered from my internet research that hair loss was also mentioned in the bible:

Old Testament, Kings 2: 23 “From there Elisha went to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some youths came out of the town and jeered at him. "Go on up, you baldhead!" they said "go on up, you baldhead!" He turned round, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths. And he went on to Mount Carmel and from there returned to Samaria.”

Singapore Hair Transplants

This is one of the many hair transplant procedure videos I have watched in Youtube.

Hair transplants may be the most effective and proven methods to regrow lost hair, but often the sight of the process may deter many: as it seems so painful to prick and poke a follicle into the bald scalp areas.

But one will be under local anathestics, the pain will be worth it if at least it works!

Hair Loss

Today, in this post, I would like to share with all of you something personal, that is a ritual I carry out daily for the past 3 years since my hair starts to drop and drop and drop!

The ritual is counting of fallen hair! Do you know I still practise the counting of my fallen hairs everyday! After every shampoo and washing off the shampoos, I will crouch down on the bathroom floor, close my eye as my fingers reach for the drainhole of the bathroom. My fingers will then feel whether the hair shed today would be a lot or not. Then I slowly open my eyes to face the reality… as a bunch of fallen hairs greet me! But this bunch of fallen hairs have since decreased after I bought the E-book (see my previous posts) and learnt the great techniques to combat the loss in hair!

The same practice goes after every morning waking up. I shake my pillows and blanket to dislodge all fallen hairs and with these fallen hairs, count them to see whether there is an improvement.

Sometimes if you count fewer hair dropped during shampoo, do not be too happy! It may be due to the strong gust of wind you encountered before reaching home which has already blown a number of your hairs around in the public!

Hair Transplant Horror Stories

If you are a hair loss sufferer, and are contemplating a hair transplant, you should do your homework on the internet. There seems to be many hair transplant horror stories and one should get a good hair transplant from a competent professional!

Hair Transplants

For people who have balded significantly and have given up on hair growth solutions or they have find no success in regrowing hair, the last resort is to undergo a hair transplant.

What is a hair transplant? Basically the process involves the transplant of scalp follicles, which are still alive and functioning into the balding portions of the scalp. As a recap, people get bald, when their scalp follicles die and drops off, these seed of hair growth are then lost irreversibly.

However, the hair on our sides of the scalp are programmed for life! Hence to say, the follicles on the side of our head will last throughout our lifetime. Hair transplant will hence necessitate the transfer of these eternal follicles into the balding scalp for growth of hair at these balding regions.

Local anesthetic needs to be administered to the patient undergoing the hair transplant treatment for it will be a bloody affair... its like planting seeds, poke into the scalp and plant a seed.. its like sewing too. This is what I have watched from a video.
