Hair loss is when a person loses hair from their scalp, and depending on how it is treated, it can be temporary or permanent. It can happen due to genetics, hormones, medical issues, or aging. This can affect anyone, but it’s more common in men. Its effects often extend beyond just the hair on the person’s head. It also lets individuals face challenges with regards to their self-esteem and confidence.
As a barbershop, CG Barbershop recognizes the importance of self-esteem and confidence in men and the significant impact hair loss can have on them. That’s why we have partnered with Ouronyx, who are experts in micrografting hair transplants. Before discussing the available treatments, let us first examine the causes of male baldness.
Male baldness, also referred to as androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness, is a prevalent condition that typically develops in men as they age. The condition is marked by a gradual and progressive loss of hair from the scalp, often starting from the top and front of the head, and eventually leading to baldness in some instances.
The primary causes of male baldness are thought to be a combination of genetic and hormonal factors. The hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is believed to be a significant contributor to the condition, as it can cause hair follicles to shrink and shorten the hair growth cycle.
What is Autologous Micrografting Technology?
Autologous Micrografting Technology (AMT) is recommended as an effective and innovative protocol to combat androgenic alopecia.
AMT is a hair restoration technique which is a minimally invasive and non-surgical treatment. This procedure is conducted under local anesthesia and involves taking a few hair roots from a dense area of hair growth on the scalp, often the back or sides of the head. The extracted follicles are then converted to liquid stem cells and injected to the balding or thinning areas of the scalp to help slow down hair fall and stimulate existing hair follicles to grow. Post-treatment, the scalp is monitored by doctors and vitamin treatments are conducted if required to boost results. AMT is a one-off treatment that shows visible hair growth within a period of about 3 to 6 months and then only needs to be repeated again after 12-18 months depending on each patient’s case.
AMT is an exciting treatment option for individuals with hair loss, as this offers a natural-looking, permanent solution. With CG Barbershop’s partnership with Ouronyx, this top-of-the-line AMT treatment with a psychology-led consultation process and specialists on call are available to guide you through the treatment and offer you the best experience and results.
What Can You Do At the Salon?
Choosing the ideal haircut for thinning hair is a subjective matter that varies based on personal preference and individual circumstances. If you’re unsure about which style to opt for, you can schedule a complimentary consultation with a CG barber to discuss your options. However, there are some essential tips and guidelines that can assist you in selecting a haircut that can create an illusion of fuller, thicker hair.
Short haircuts: Short haircuts are a popular choice for individuals with thinning hair, as they can create the illusion of thicker hair by reducing the contrast between areas of hair loss and the remaining hair. Buzz cuts, crew cuts, and textured crops are all short haircut options that can help to achieve this effect. These haircuts are particularly useful for individuals who have significant hair loss or who are experiencing balding in specific areas.
Layered haircuts: Layered haircuts can be a great option for individuals with fine or straight hair. This style can add volume and texture to thinning hair, making it look fuller and more voluminous. Layering can also help to conceal bald spots or areas of thinning hair. This is because the layers create the illusion of more hair, making the scalp less visible.
Side-parted hairstyles: Side-parted hairstyles are another effective way to create the illusion of more hair. By combing hair over from one side to the other, you can cover balding areas and create the appearance of a fuller head of hair. This style works particularly well for individuals who have receding hairlines or bald spots on the crown of their head.
Textured hairstyles: Textured hairstyles, such as messy or tousled styles, are also popular options for individuals with thinning hair. These styles can add volume and dimension to hair, making it look thicker and fuller. Tousled haircuts, for example, create a natural-looking, unkempt style that can help to mask areas of hair loss.
Avoiding long hairstyles: Long hairstyles can be problematic for individuals with thinning hair, as the weight of the hair can cause it to lay flat and expose the scalp. This can make hair look even thinner and more sparse, which is why shorter hairstyles are typically recommended for individuals with thinning hair. By keeping hair short, you can create the illusion of thicker, fuller hair while also concealing areas of hair loss.
