Hair loss, hair restoration, and hair transplants: a guide

Balding - Hair loss guide

Hair loss is seen by many as a natural fact of life that is inevitable with advancing age in both men and women. To some extent this is true but that does not mean that you should simply give up and resign yourself to hair loss or baldness.

There are many highly effective ways to tackle the problem, especially if you take action early. Tackling and treating an underlying health problem can make a big difference and early application of hair restoration treatments such as minoxidil and finasteride can also be effective. For men with male pattern baldness, hair transplant surgery can improve both your appearance and your self-confidence.

In this guide, we explore the various causes of hair loss in detail, explaining the signs, symptoms, and reasons. These are often different in men and women. We also describe the different hair restoration treatments that are available and investigate the various hair transplant techniques that are on offer in the UK.
