Supplements may help to boost hair health’ says Dr Shahmalak , ‘but generally only if hair loss is due to a deficiency. For example, hair loss caused by anaemia may be reduced by taking iron supplements. I recommend Watermans GrowPRO hair vitamins which would be great to boost hair health and produce, thick healthy hair.’ What about products? Could your dry shampoo habit be what’s causing your hair loss? Dr Shahmalak thinks not, saying: ‘As hair loss is primarily due to hormonal and health changes, there are no particular products I would recommend avoiding. However, there are steps you can take to reduce the chance of hair loss such as keeping yourself active and healthy. ‘Exercise not only helps to improve your overall health and cardiovascular strength, but increased blood flow to the scalp delivers oxygen and nutrients to hair follicles, which can help to keep your scalp and hair healthy. Stopping smoking, avoiding harsh bleaching and perming of hair and not wearing hair pulled back into tight styles can also help to reduce the chance of hair loss. In terms of products, Dr Shahmalak recommends GROWMe shampoo and conditioner from Watermans. There are a number of medications that can be taken to prevent further hair loss and encourage hair growth, such as Finasterade and Minoxidil. These medications stimulate hair follicles to create new hair and protect the follicles from the effects of growth-reducing hormones. These medications have to be prescribed by a doctor though. And if none of that works? That’s when people consider surgery. Dr Shahmalak says: ‘FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) hair transplants are a great permanent option for female hair loss. This involves individual hair follicles being removed from less visible areas of the scalp and transplanted into thinning or balding areas. The transplanted hair can be placed in specific areas of the scalp where hair loss is particularly noticeable, or can be placed across the scalp to help hair look thicker in general.’ If you’re considering a hair transplant, ensure your surgeon has the relevant experience and qualifications, and is registered with a body such as the British Association of Hair Restoration Surgery.
