Hair loss now a days is not only the problem of older age group but now it is surprisingly
seen in early age group persons like in early twenties.
Hair transplant: It is a surgical method of restoring hair in the bald area. In this hair grafts or the roots are extracted from the permanent hair zone and then transplanted into the bald area after making the recipient slits. This is generally done by infiltrating the local anesthesia to make the scalp area numb. There are numerous advantages also like it is completely natural, as the donor is taken from the person’s own scalp so no chances of allergic reaction.
Hair replacement: This is a non surgical option of providing hair loss solution. This is made of material which sits and fixes on scalp using existing hairs or adhesives. Person can give the preference of colour, texture and length before the replacement. Major drawback is it may not look completely natural, needs regular cleaning and maintenece.
