Top Tips For Hair Loss Prevention

Posted by DHI Australia on August 9, 2019

Like it or not, at some point in your life you are likely to experience hair loss. It might be that you notice that you’re shedding more than usual, or your hair is thinning, you’ve noticed a bald patch, or perhaps you’ve looked at an old photo and realised that your hairline is not where it used to be. A time will come when you’ll realise you’re losing hair and you may want to put the brakes on.

It’s easy to instinctively think the worst, but the good news is that hair loss isn’t always permanent. For some, hair loss is reversible, for others it’s a matter of preserving what’s there and sometimes people want to restore what has already been lost. The most important step to take when you notice that you are losing hair is to visit a hair loss expert who can give you a personalised, correct diagnosis for your hair loss, as it's not always black and white. Hair loss is a personal condition, and every diagnosis and treatment plan should be treated as such.

Top Tips On How To Fix Bald Spots

Posted by DHI Australia on November 20, 2018

Suddenly discovering a bald spot on your scalp can be distressing. Sometimes we imagine the worst. Slowly progressing bald spots can also cause concern. A variety of hormonal and medical conditions can cause both permanent and temporary hair loss. Before you go rushing to the chemist to try the first product you see for hair loss, the first and most important step is to get a correct diagnosis for your bald spot(s) from a hair loss expert. For example, there’s no use applying a hair loss solution to ringworm! 

A private consultation with a hair loss expert will give you a correct diagnosis for what’s causing the bald spots and whether you have permanent or temporary hair loss. You will then have the information you need for the right solution.

What Is DHT & What Is Its Role In Hair Loss?

Posted by DHI Australia on July 20, 2018

You may already know that DHT plays a role in hair loss, but what exactly is it? DHT stands for dihydrotestosterone and it is an androgen, or hormone, responsible for giving men their male characteristics, such as body hair, increased muscle mass and deeper voice. The 5a-reductase enzyme synthesises DHT from testosterone in areas such as the prostate and hair follicles. DHT is considered to be a contributor to male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia as it is thought to cause hair follicles to miniaturise.

Treatments that block DHT may be able to prevent hair loss. For those already suffering from hair loss, a hairline redesign or hair transplant could be an option for a permanent solution rather than prevention.

Ashley & Martin vs DHI – What’s The Difference?

Posted by DHI Australia on April 26, 2018

Over the years, Ashley & Martin have successfully built a brand associated with hair loss treatment. According to the CEO of Ashley & Martin, “2010 data shows that 70% of hair loss industry marketing is Ashley and Martin’s.” This shows that they spend a huge budget on marketing and brand awareness, but what about the quality of solutions and results?

With today’s increasingly significant emphasis on health and natural solutions, taking hair loss medications or a daily hair loss prevention routine may not be suitable for everyone. We explain the similarities and differences between Ashley & Martin (A&M) and DHI hair loss prevention and solutions.

The Worst Thing About Hair Loss Drugs

Posted by DHI Australia on April 19, 2018

The signs of ageing include wrinkles, the slowing down of cell renewal, grey hair and of course, hair loss. Loss of hair occurs when hair follicles stop hair growth, also known as alopecia. Through the normal hair growth cycle, we typically lose 50-100 hairs a day, however loss can be more excessive than this and many people turn to medication as a solution. Just like any other medication, there are side effects that need to be considered and weighed-up against other forms of treatment. 

We discuss the main types of hair loss, the symptoms that you should consult a hair restoration specialist about, and the drawbacks of hair loss drugs.

The Effect of Procrastination on Hair Loss Treatment

Posted by DHI Australia on March 9, 2018

If you are guilty of “sticking your head in the sand” when it comes to hair loss, you’re not alone. Many people hope for the best, wishing for the loss to be temporary. The Aussie way of, “She’ll be right mate” can come back to haunt you if one day you look at your balding reflection in the mirror and worry if you’ve left it too late. 

Putting off hair loss treatment means that when the day comes to face reality (that you may be going bald) and take action, you will have less hair to work with. For those who take action early, never going bald is an achievable goal. We discuss the impact of procrastination when it comes to treating hair loss and explain the options for hair loss prevention and treatment.

Symptoms & Signs of Hair Loss vs Shedding

Posted by DHI Australia on February 23, 2018

"Am I just losing some extra hair, or am I actually going bald?" This question can keep you awake at night and can cause stress and anxiety. Everyone hopes that their hair loss is caused by something other than genetics. For causes other than genetics, there is a good chance that the loss is temporary and in many cases, reversible. For the genetic cases, the most important point is to take action early. By addressing hair loss at an early stage, you can preserve what you have and you may never have to go bald.

So, what’s the difference between hair loss and shedding? We explain the symptoms and signs to look out for.

Telogen Effluvium - What Is It, What Causes It & Solutions

Posted by DHI Australia on January 15, 2018

Leading trichologists (hair specialists) are seeing an increase in the frequency of reactive hair loss, also known as telogen effluvium. Thinning hair is a natural part of ageing, however younger people suffering from excessive shedding is becoming much more common. The excessive shedding occurs as a result of more follicles going into the telogen (resting) phase of the hair growth cycle, usually following some type of “shock” to the follicles.

As more and more consumers move towards narrower diets, and as social and professional stress levels seem to be greater than ever before, the frequency in the number of cases of thinning hair is increasing. We define telogen effluvium, explain its causes and how you can prevent and treat the condition.
