    Maintaining Healthy Hair After Transplant

    Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE

    Slim is fashionable and a multi-billion dollar industry thrives on weight loss. Whether its special diets or exercise equipment or magic weight loss pills for fast metabolism and suppression of appetite, market is flooded with promises for a great looking body within no time. It is quite common that people want to have a sexy body with a target weight in mind but when it comes to reaching their goal they are completely ignorant about safe and effective weight-loss diet.

    Sadly, it is possible to lose weight by “dieting” but often it results in sagging skin and hair loss that is quite overwhelming. All efforts to enhance looks come to a naught if hair is not healthy because good hair is indispensable for looking good. If you want to enhance your looks, having a diet rich in all the right nutrition is required. For those who just has a hair transplant, good nutrition is even more important.  

    A weight loss program that emphasize on both balanced diet and physical exercise is effective. Balanced diet fulfills body’s requirement for fuel (calories) as well as vitamins, minerals, crucial fatty acids and protein to perform biochemical tasks and also preserve and strengthen the immune system for fighting infections.

    Every cell in the body including hair follicles need repair and growth. Healthy diet is needed to produce hair and sustain it during its anagen-telogen-catagen phases.

    Any diet that lacks essential nutrients, results in malnutrition and if it persists over an extended period of time damage hair by interruption of normal hair cycling, disabling follicles from producing new hair. It may even cause temporary or permanent hair loss

    Diets that ignore all essential nutrients, or concentrate on one essential nutrients while having others in less than Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) levels can lead to malnutrition.

    Telogen effluvium is an irregularity of hair cycle that is caused by nutritional deficiency resulting in hair loss. It affects hair cycle in so that hair that should normally be in anagen (growth) phase move to telogen (resting) phase. Hair fall thus caused is untimely.

    Hormonal imbalance including hypothyroidism, physical infirmity, and physical or mental stress may also cause telogen effluvium. It can also result from side effects of over-the-counter and prescribed drugs. Postoperative loss of transplanted hair that results from “surgical shock” on transplanted hair follicles also comes under telogen effluvium. Eating a balanced diet and staying well hydrated by drinking adequate amount of fluids in pre- and postoperative periods is good way to mitigate “Surgical shock”.

    Another condition that results from protein deficiency is Anagen effluvium. This is infrequent in adults except where protein ingestion is very less.
