Hair Restoration

It’s National Hair Loss Awareness Month! Here are 4 Hair Loss Treatment Options


August is hair loss awareness month. Hair loss affects over 80 million people in the United States alone, with billions of dollars spent on preventing and treating the condition. Here are four hair loss treatment options that can either slow the process of hair loss or help new hair follicles to grow.  

1. Regeneris Stem Cell PRP

Using a combination of stem cells and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) harvested from the patient’s own body, Regeneris Stem Cell PRP stimulates dormant hair follicles to begin hair growth again. After the fat is removed from a specific area of the body, such as the abdomen, it is processed and purified to extract viable stem cells. PRP is extracted from the patient's blood. These two substances are then combined and injected into the patient’s scalp using a small needle, enabling the growth factors and proteins to begin to restore hair growth over time.


2. Minoxidil

Minoxidil is a topical hair loss treatment (usually applied as a foam or serum) that enhances the size of the patient’s hair follicle to allow for bigger, thicker strands of hair. This is a relatively low-cost treatment option, however, only 50% of users typically see improvement.


3. Wigs and hair pieces

Although not the typical solution patients seek out, hair pieces are a good first option for individuals with new or minimal hair loss. High quality, natural looking wigs are available through online stores and retailers, and could be covered by insurance.


4. Surgical methods

Procedures like microFUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) are a great option for those individuals looking for a more aggressive approach with high levels of improvement. The microFUE procedure extracts individual follicular units from the patient’s donor area microscopically. Growth factors are then added to the donor area, allowing for the donor area to potentially regrow. Another option is the Artas Robotic Hair Restoration procedure, a new technology allowing for precise, seamless hair transplant surgeries. The device’s robotic accuracy and high definition stereoscopic vision system allow for no linear scars and lower pain levels for patients. This procedure will be available soon at Regeneris Center for Health and Beauty.


Hair loss is not something to be ashamed or embarrassed of, and is a fairly common condition. Acknowledge Hair Loss Awareness Month by donating your hair to an organization like Locks of Love (a non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States) or by inquiring about a Stem Cell PRP treatment.

8 Ways to Prevent Hair Loss


Studies tell us that some types of hair loss conditions are hereditary. However, there are steps that you can take to slow the process and increase hair health. Here are some of our best tips for keeping your beautiful, full locks well into your golden years.  

1. Eat more wild salmon

Increasing your intake of foods high in protein is one of the best ways to keep your hair healthy. Enjoy a salmon salad or tuna on crackers to ensure that you are taking in the protein and omega 3 fatty acids that are essential nutrients for your hair.

2. Soak your hair in green tea

The antioxidants found in green tea are powerful stimulants for strong and healthy hair. Brew a batch of tea (2-3 tea bags), let the tea cool and pour it over your hair. Leave the tea in your hair for at least one hour and then rinse with warm water.

3. Reduce stress

Improving your stress levels is always a good idea for your overall health, but especially for preventing hair loss. Use an app like Headspace to practice meditating, take a warm bubble bath at home or go for an evening walk to unwind at the end of the day. Your hair will thank you.

4. Take a supplement

Stores like Target and CVS carry a large variety of inexpensive supplement options for improving hair health: biotin, vitamin B, vitamin C, zinc and multivitamins are all good options. Taking a supplement daily can be a great step towards preventative hair health.

5. Avoid heat and chemicals 

We all know that extensive amounts of heat from blow dryers and curling irons causes severe damage to your hair, but what about hair dye? Harsh chemicals from salon treatments and dyes can strip your hair of its natural protective coating, increasing your likelihood of hair loss. Avoid these treatments whenever possible, and be sure to use a deep conditioner at least once per week.

6. Ask your doctor

Your doctor may be able to prescribe you medications to prevent hair loss that are stronger than over the counter options. This could include medications like Minoxidil (a topical treatment) or Finasteride (a prescription drug).

7. Consider PRP injections

PRP injections are a great non-surgical option for keeping your hair thick and healthy. PRP injections involve a physician drawing the patient's blood, enriching it with platelets, and reinjecting it into the patient’s scalp. This process stimulates the patient’s hair growth through an easy, non invasive procedure.

8. Quit smoking

Studies show that hair loss (and overall health) is significantly worse for people who smoke. Quitting smoking is an excellent step towards preventing hair loss.

Importance of Diagnosing Hair Loss Early


Hair loss (alopecia) can be an embarrassing or uncomfortable condition to talk about, especially for women. That being said, early diagnosis is essential for treating alopecia effectively. Making an early visit to the doctor and a timely diagnosis a patient’s best option.


Some symptoms of hair loss include hair shedding, hair falling out, hair thinning, or a receding hairline. Symptoms can be caused by genetics or shrinking follicles. Alopecia can be sudden or gradual, and the patient’s skin can be scaly or rash like.

When a patient visits the doctor, hair specialists should show male patients the Norwood Scale illustrations of hair loss and female patients the Ludwig Scale for hair loss in women. The patient's medications will be reviewed and a family history will be taken. It’s important that doctors make patients feel as comfortable as possible when discussing alopecia. A good option is to ask the patient “how is your hair doing?” or “is your hair health good?”. This opens the door for an honest conversation about the patient’s hair health without the doctor coming off as intrusive or presumptuous.


Hair loss treatment includes medications, hair transplant surgeries, bio-cellular procedures such as PRP, stress management techniques or other methods like hair pieces and alternative hair styling. Dyes can be used to cover the scalp, hairstyles can make the patient's hair appear more thick, and hairpieces can be attached to the scalp to cover any bald spots. If a patient’s individual case of alopecia isn’t severe, infrequent shampooing or conditioning may be recommended.

Possible Diagnosis

Treating hair loss is not always just about appearance or aesthetics. Symptoms of hair loss may also be symptoms of other more serious conditions such as lupus, diabetes, or rheumatoid arthritis. Lab tests may be ordered to check for a thyroid condition, hormonal imbalances or anemia. Surgery, childbirth or crash diets can also lead to unwanted hair loss. Getting these symptoms checked early can be the difference between treating a simple flare up of a condition or having untreated declining health problems for a long period of time.

Alopecia is a fairly common condition, with about 80 million Americans affected by hereditary hair loss. Early diagnosis is essential for effective treatment, and patients should feel comfortable to come forward and discuss their symptoms with their physicians.

7 of the Best Natural Hair Restoration Remedies

There’s no doubt that we’re becoming a society that seeks out natural hair restoration remedies to treat hair loss. Depending on the underlying reason for hair loss, some at-home natural hair restoration remedies can really help improve hair strength, growth, texture, as well as moisturize and soothe the scalp.* From simply integrating more nutrients into your daily food consumption, to putting masks on your hair, here are 7 of the best natural hair loss remedies.

Natural Hair Restoration Remedies

1. Diet


Eating the right foods can do more than just promote a healthy weight. Protein and omega-3 fatty acids are both important nutrients for healthy, strong locks. WebMD suggests eating “about two to three 3-ounce servings of meat or a combination of four to five servings of dairy and beans.” A diet implemented with nuts and seeds (especially flax seeds), fish, and eggs are all excellent sources of both protein and omega-3s that can all potentially be natural hair restoration remedies. Potassium, phosphorus, calcium and vitamins B and C are also all important nutrients for healthy hair maintenance- nothing drinking a little beet juice can’t help!


2. Oils


Massaging oil into your scalp can do a few of things for you. One, it’s a great way to soothe and moisturize any dry or irritated skin. The massaging itself can also promote healthy blood flow to the hair follicles, which may help growth. Lastly, it can strengthen the roots of the hair, as well as enhance texture. Oils like argan oil, olive oil, hemp oil, castor oil, and emu oil can be great natural hair restoration remedies if your hair loss stems mostly from (or is worsened by) a dry scalp or dandruff.

3. Onion Juice


Because of it’s high sulfur content, onion juice can also potentially help treat hair loss. The sulfur “helps in hair growth by increasing collagen production.” In addition to all of that, onions possess anti inflammatory and antibacterial properties that can keep microorganisms at bay, thus treating infections that can cause hair loss.


The Health Site recommends this regime:


  • Chop one onion finely and squeeze out its juice.
  • Apply the juice on your scalp and let it stay for 15 minutes.
  • Now rinse with a mild shampoo and let your hair air dry.
  • Use this twice a week to see results.


4. Aloe Vera


Aloe vera is a great anti-inflammatory agent, and can alleviate any itching or dandruff by keeping the scalp moisturized. It also “contains enzymes that directly promote healthy hair growth. Also, its alkalizing properties can help bring the scalp and hair’s pH to a more desirable level, which can greatly promote hair growth.” You can simply leave Aloe gel or juice in your hair for a few hours, or use Top 10 Home Remedies recommended hair loss treatment recipe:


“In a 2002 study published in the Journal of Dermatology, almost 74 percent of the study participants who applied onion juice on the scalp experienced significant hair regrowth.”

  • Mix together three tablespoons of onion juice and two tablespoons of aloe vera gel. You can also add one tablespoon of olive oil. Apply this mixture onto your scalp and leave it on for at least 30 minutes before rinsing it off and shampooing your hair.
  • Repeat two or three times a week for several weeks.


5. Be Gentle


Tugging or rough handling of the hair can cause traction-related hair loss. This is when the hair is being removed from the follicle by force. “Rubber bands, dyes, perms, straightening irons, and curling wands can be hard on your hair,” says WebMD. “If your hair is thinning, you don't want it to break as well. Be gentle with your hair -- don't overdo brushing or washing.” If your balding stems from traction or excessive styling, one the best and cheapest natural hair restoration remedies is to just leave your hair alone, and be more conscientious of how you handle your tresses.


6. Supplements


If diagnosed with any conditions that may induce hair loss such as anemia, hypothyroidism, or any metabolic disorders, then ask your provider if it would be okay to implement daily supplements into your routine as a natural hair restoration remedies.  Vitamins and minerals such as biotin, iron, zinc, and potassium iodide can all aid in promoting hair growth if the body has any known deficiencies. We must stress that it is very important to speak with an accredited physician first before taking any supplements- they will know if any supplements interact with certain medications you may be on, and run appropriate blood tests to see if there truly are any deficiencies.


7. Breathe


It’s natural to be worried if you’re losing your hair. However, it will make matters worse to continue to stress about it. “Losing your hair can be stressful,” says WebMD. “And stress (physical and emotional) can sometimes increase hair loss.” Take some deep breaths and know that there are protocols available that can help you. If you’re worried about staying on the natural route, that’s why facilities like Regeneris Medical exist- to make sure you get the best possible results with the safest, natural hair restoration remedies possible.
