Hair Trouble - Treating Hair Trouble
Hirsutism is the growth of long, coarse hair on the face and body of women in a pattern similar to that of men. Besides being cosmetically distressing, this condition may indicate hormonal imbalance.
All women produce testosterone, a male hormone that is responsible for the growth of hair in the armpit and in the groin region. When this male hormone exceeds normal level, it results in the growth of hair on the face, lower back and abdomen. Hence women attaining menopause are, sometimes, exposed to hirsutism as the oestrogen level decreases, resulting in the higher level of testosterone.
There are a number of men who do not mind the clean-shaven-head. In fact they feel that it makes them look extremely good. However, there are others who suffer from a complex as balding and hair thinning has been associated with the aging process we go through.
In rare cases, it may be due to the presence of a tumour in ovaries as well as in adrenal glands where testosterone is produced. In such cases hirsutism progresses rapidly and may rarely result in virilism, a syndrome marked by masculine features such as deep voice and an enlarged clitoris.
Ways To free from your hair trouble:-
Improve blood circulation to prevent hair loss:- Take warm coconut oil & rub it on the scalp with cotton wool. Then apply this oil till the ends of your hair. After this dip your towel in hot water and then tie it on your hair. Keep it for sometime. If possible repeat this procedure. This helps the oil to penetrate into the roots of the hair. Moreover it helps in a good blood circulation in the areas near the scalp and helps in good growth of your hair.
Vitamin deficiency can cause hair fall:- Vitamins not only have effect on the colour of our hair but also on the entire hair history. For dry, scanty and falling hair you should have plenty of fruits and vegetables. Leafy vegetables are best recommended, you could add more of spinach and fenugreek leaves to your diet. Best recommended fruits are amla and mangoes.
A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment, disabling numerous follicles at a time to eliminate or significantly impede the hair's growth.
The laser treatment itself can cause a slight tingling sensation. Most patients tolerate the procedure well. Because some areas of the body are more sensitive than others, topical anesthesia can be an option.
The treatment time can vary considerably depending on the size of the area treated, and the particular technique used. A small area such as the upper lip may take only five minutes, while a larger area like the back or legs may take up to one hour.
