Hair Loss Hits the Headlines Again!

While Aspiration and cosmetic hair replacement as an option didn’t get a mention in this week’s Daily Mail article The anguish of the women who lose their hair: SIX MILLION women suffer and it can be a warning of health problems, it is noticeable that articles about hair loss are on the increase, in particular those featuring hair loss in women.

Ten or fifteen years ago articles about hair loss (even in men) would have been almost unheard of except for the odd inch in a health magazine or an article speculating on which male Hollywood star might be thinning on top or which might be wearing a clandestine hair piece (see previous posting).

Hair loss is well and truly coming out of the closet it seems. We at Aspiration however still prefer to focus on hair gain. And while we can’t offer you a solution which is genetically yours, we can guarantee our products are 100% natural human hair (bar for any colour matching we may have done to seamlessly integrate it with a client’s remaining hair), and will be yours. We also can and do help those with no hair at all to get their life and confidence back with a renewed head of great hair.

One thing which doesn’t change in the media though is that these articles seldom have any medical answers. All the more reason to visit a salon which has the cosmetic answers, not least as 70% of hair loss has no known medical reason other than theory of genetic bad luck, which again has hitherto proved stubborn in responding to treatment. As for hair transplants they can be a lottery as we’ve previously discussed on this blog, even if you can afford them, and are often unsuitable for women with diffuse hair loss as there are no abundant areas to harvest from. Plus the area to be treated is often much larger too in these cases. Finally most women demand a higher strand count than most men, yet what they get from a hair transplant will always be a limited density to what they previously had, sometimes under 50% of their former thickness. A man may be delighted by this result if baldness was the alternative, but seldom a woman whose hair has traditionally been feted as her ‘crowning glory’ and who probably already retained a modest covering.
