Rajesh finds a match on Tinder. A beautiful twenty five year old medical student with cute dimples and blue eyes. The chatting began with a simple “Hi”, and followed by interesting, deep conversations that lasted for hours.

She loved reading, traveling and was a A. R. Rehman fan. It was as if Tinder had found Rajesh his soulmate.

She was perfect for him in every way, like the girl in your day dreams you imagine finding and spending your life with, but despite the connection and all the long conversation, Rajesh never asked her out on a date.

He wanted to but he didn’t. He understood that she was expecting him to ask, and thought she’d judge him for not doing it. The texts got less frequent, the conversations became shorter and shorter and eventually they stopped talking.



Rajesh never asked her out because he was worried.

Worried about being judged. Worried about being rejected. Worried that he was not the same guy that was in his profile picture that he uploaded of two years before.

That she’d see him and notice the hair he had lost since that picture was taken and declare him a fraud.

Hair loss and baldness are things we often ignore as being harmless, but only those who suffer from it will understand how devastating realizing that you are going bald is.

People like Rajesh are suffering silently and missing out on great opportunities because they have developed low self esteem and believe people will judge them because of their looks.

Just look at the example of celebrity hair stylist James Brown. He started losing hair in his twenties and suffered another twenty years before seeking professional help.

He always wore hats, which became his signature style, but he didn’t wear hats as a fashion choice but to cover his bald spot.

This solution is simple enough for anyone conscious about their baldness but in case of Mr. Brown the problem was much worse. He couldn’t take off his hat. Even at the airports, he would get very anxious about taking off his hat.

It got to the point when it was so bad, I didn’t want to take my hat off. Those minutes before going through security and taking my hat off, they were torture for me he said.

Mental problems when left untreated get worse. In India where mention of mental illness is frowned upon, people are reluctant to get professional help because of the fear of getting judged.

AIB : If People Treated Other Illnesses Like They Treat Depression



 

Hair loss is not just a vanity problem and it’s certainly not harmless. A major study about the negative psychological effects of hair loss has revealed that hair loss can trigger serious psychological breakdown.

 

It could lead to exaggerated feelings of ugliness and even trigger body dysmorphic disorder.

 

For most people, hair loss leads to low self-confidence and affects their quality of life. They go out less to avoid social situations, they get nervous about asking out attractive people.

 

The world is obsessed with hair – How important are they really?

Hair are important. They have been since ancient times. For Greeks, elaborate wigs were a sign of status and wealth. Attractive hair have been always valued in different cultures around the world.

 

The masters shaved off the heads of their slaves as a gesture of dominance.

 

Hair have always been associated with power and strength.

 

The face is the most important feature when in comes to first impressions. It also plays an important role when it comes to attraction between people.

 

Hair frames the face and hence plays a major part in appearance. People spend thousands on hair care & styling products.

 

All of this because looks matter. How attractive we think we look strongly affects our self esteem and confidence.

 

This is when hair come into play. We have the freedom to style it the way we want, it gives us a sense of control. You can cut, color, highlight, and style it the way you want to. Losing hair makes us feel like we’re losing control and that can cause anxiety.

 

Doomed Love Life – Will hair fall make dating difficult?

 

What do women find attractive in a man? Turns out, it’s something you can control.

 

More than your God given looks, women care about how much effort you put into looking good. It’s not what you have but what you do with what you have. That’s why to improve your chances of finding a beautiful partner, put in some effort into grooming and style.

 

Also, confidence matters. A lot. The more confident you are the more attractive people will find you.

 

Ironically, if you are balding and that’s affecting your confidence it may make you less attractive. Not because you look bad, but because you feel like you do. This in turn hurts your self esteem even more, because you conclude that it’s the lack of hair that’s making you unappealing to women.

 

Women may be affected more by this. Women want to be desired and losing their hair will make them feel unattractive.

 

Same advice works for women. Don’t worry about what you can’t change and focus on improving what you already have. Men find women who put in effort into looking good very attractive. So, pay attention to your style and fashion.






Those eyes staring at you – Do people judge you for having less hair?

 

Cornell University psychologist Thomas Gilovich, Ph.D, did an experiment. He sent a group of newcomers to an undergraduate class wearing Barry Manilow t-shirts.

 

He later asked the students if they thought their classmates had noticed their clothing. They thought that half their peers had been silently snickering at them.

 

But in fact only about 23 percent of the students had even noticed the questionable choice of clothing.

 

The study, and many more similar ones, demonstrates that people have tendency to overestimate how often people notice not only how they look but also what they do.

 

This is called as the spotlight effect. It’s human nature. We all do it. The important thing is not to let it go too far. Not let it affect your life. If you pass up opportunities because you are afraid people will judge, you will miss out on great things in life.

 

The point is most people won’t even notice your bald spot. You’re exaggerating it in your mind. Those people you see staring at your head are probably lost in thoughts and don’t even realize where they’re looking.

 

Do people judge you because of your bald head? Some of them, yes. Those will be always there, but most people don’t. They are too busy with their own lives and problems.

 

The secret to happiness for bald people – Realize what’s important

 

First of all, realize that people don’t care about your baldness as much as you think they do. Your friends and loved ones like you and respect you for who you are and not how many hair you have on your head. Avoid those people who make you feel worse about your hair. If you don’t you will suffer.

 

Also, when it comes to attractiveness to the opposite sex, you have other features that they will find attractive so don’t let your hair hold you back.

 

It is always a great idea to get a professional hair stylist to find the best hairstyle that suits you.

 

Don’t worry about what you don’t have, but take what you already have and utilize it. In this case use whatever hair you have and find the best hairstyle that suits you.

You can also try hats or scarfs as long as they look fashionable and suit you. Consult a stylist.

If hair loss is causing you anxiety or signs of depression, you have to get professional help. Consult a therapist.

If hair loss is affecting the quality of your life, then it’s worth the effort and money to get help. Nothing is more important than your sanity.

If Rajesh had just gathered the courage and asked her out, may be she would have liked him. Rajesh will never know because he never did.

How will people fall in love with you if you don’t give them a chance to.

If hair transplant is an option for you, you can get a free consultation here. If a head full of hair is what takes for you to get your confidence back, we can get you there.

Hair Care

 


The thing that women find most attractive in a man is the effort he makes in looking good.

I’m not talking about good looks. Obviously, good looks help, but what’s more important is what you do with what you already have. How you dress, grooming, hygiene, all contribute to your attractiveness.

That’s not all. They say “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover,” but people do. Everyone does. At least at the first glance. Our brains are wired to make snap judgements about people within milliseconds. So how you look can have an impact on your career and social life.

And a bad haircut or hair problems can hold you back. Stop you from achieving your potential may that be in your career or love life.

You must know how to take care of your hair. Now sit back, relax and read this article. I have 7 hair care tips for you. Read them, remember them, write them down, or better bookmark this page, because you’re going to need to read it again.

 


1) 
Don’t use hot water to wash your hair

A hot shower will make you feel fresh and relaxed, but washing your hair with hot water will make you go bald. Hot water dehydrates strands and makes your hair dry. Dry hair is brittle hair, brittle hair is prone to falling out.

Your body naturally creates protective oils to keep your hair moisturised and healthy. The heat from the hot water makes the pores of your scalp produce too much of it, which damages the roots and causes hair loss.

Same goes for anything else that exposes your hair to heat, like hair dryer and exposure to harsh sunlight.

So keep your hair cold and healthy.


2) Avoid using too much hair product

You use hair gel or wax and mold them artfully to make latest style, but it’s always a good idea to use them in moderation. Sure, you want your hair to look great, but don’t get carried away.

With time the build up will make your hair weighed down which won’t look good.

How much is the right amount of hair product? Rule of thumb, if you think you’re using too much product, you probably are.

 


3)  Get a haircut regularly

Hair grow at the rate of half an inch per month. Long hair won’t hair loss, but if you don’t take proper care of those hair, problems will follow. So get it trimmed regularly, and if you have a trimmer you delay time between haircuts. Here is the link to the video that shows you how to trim your hair.


4) Don’t wash them too often

Do you wash your hair everyday? That’s bad. Wash your hair two to three times a week. Any more than that and you wash away the the natural protective oils that keep the hair healthy. Your hair will also lose the natural shine.

But there are exceptions of course. Say you’re an athlete who’s drenched in sweat by the time you hit the shower everyday. You’ll need to clean your hair. Not cleaning will do more damage in this case.


5) Wash them more often

For those of you who wash your hair less than three times a week, you need to do it more. All the dirt that accumulates on the scalp and the dandruff that forms must be regularly cleaned. Use good quality shampoo.

 



6) Reduce Stress

You probably know that stress causes hair loss. Stress is not great for your health either, so try to reduce stressing yourself too often. Being said that, I know it’s easier said than done, but it can be done. You’ll need to put in some efforts. Try Yoga, mindfulness meditation, make visual pro and cons lists. Those will help you make decisions easier. Avoid people who make you feel worse about yourself. Even friends who constantly criticize you. Those people are more harmful to your health than bad diet and lack of exercise, so avoid them. Be around optimistic people who encourage you.


7) Eat healthy food

Unhealthy food will not just make you fat, it’ll also ruin your health. By eating healthy food I mean you food which provides you with the nutrients your body needs.
Make sure you get all the vitamins that you need.

Hair is made up of protein, your muscles are made up of protein, so you need to consume enough protein for your body to function properly. For it to heal when you get injured, and for it to make hair. Consume at least 70 Gm of protein every day.

Hair Care

The words “hair transplant surgery” can be intimidating for people who suffer from hair loss and baldness. It sounds dangerous. After all it has the word surgery in it.

But mostly what makes it scary is the lack of understanding of how the process works.

I’m sure if you knew what goes on during a hair transplant and understood the entire process and the steps involved in with clarity, the doubts will go away.


What is hair transplant?

Quite simply, hair transplant is moving hair from one area of your body (donor site) to the balding or thinning area (recipient site). The process is safe and painless since you’ll be given local anesthesia by the surgeons.

The risks are minimized thanks to the rapid growth in hair transplant technology and even the side effects are nothing to be worried about.

Most people spend huge amounts of time into researching for methods to grow back hair naturally.

This is a waste since except from hair loss caused by temporary causes, such as medication or reaction to some product, etc., Hair transplant is the only way to treat permanent baldness.


Psychological effects of Hair loss and Balding

It’s not just about the looks, for most people, hair loss and baldness, can cause serious negative psychological effects like anxiety, low self esteem, and even depression.

Celebrity hair stylist James Brown suffered for over 20 years of low self esteem before getting a transplant. He’d never go anywhere without a hat.

Every time he had to go through airport security, where he had to take off his hat, he was filled with anxiety.

“It got to the point when it was so bad, I didn’t want to take my hat off. Those minutes before going through security and taking my hat off, they were torture for me.” He said.

For those who don’t suffer from it, hair loss can be easy to mistake as a harmless thing, but those who do, know the effect it has on the emotional health.

Research shows that baldness can lead to exaggerated feelings of ugliness and even trigger body dysmorphic disorder, where sufferers experience acute anxiety about their looks.

Anyone who has been through something this knows how devastating this is for the self esteem.

In Goa, or India in general, we tend to ignore mental health, which is dangerous because a untreated mental issue can get more and more severe.

If you suffering with this, you should stop procrastinating and get professional help.

Either a psychiatrist who will help you cope with your condition or a consult a hair specialist who, after some tests, will inform you about your condition and recommend the best treatment option for you.


Fue & Fut

FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) Hair Treatment:- In this procedure the surgeon removes a strip of tissue with hair from the donor area, which is then dissected to separate individual grafts. FUT is also known as Strip Surgery.

The hair follicles are then harvested from this strip by the clinical team and then implanted in the recipient area, which is the area with the bald patch or scanty hair.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):- During FUE hair transplant, each hair follicle is removed from the donor area with the help of a small punch.

This procedure is repeated till enough follicular units are harvested for hair restoration. The follicular units are then placed in the recipient sites which are prepared beforehand by using a fine needle point instrument.

Before the procedure

During the first consultation, the hair specialist analyzes the patient’s scalp and then based on the results recommends the best approach for them.

Whether they need hair transplant or just medication will help.

Whether they will need a single or multiple sessions, how many grafts needed, etc.

After the procedure

Post Surgery the scalp will feel very tender for a few days and you may feel some pain. Nothing to worry about, but if the pain is too uncomfortable consult your hair doctor.

If there is pain, the surgeon will prescribe you pain medication. You will have to wear bandages over your scalp for at least a day or two.

You will be prescribed an antibiotic and the necessary medication. Also, for a few days you’ll have to avoid activities like swimming and sports.

The transplanted hair will fall out around 2 weeks after the procedure. This is normal. Most people will see 60% of new hair growth after 6 to 10 months.

Safety


Many people are reluctant to get a hair transplant because they’re worried about the procedure. They doubt whether it’s safe.

While there have been horror stories about hair transplant gone wrong, most of them due to a uninformed choice of clinics.

Always select a clinic with qualified staff for your treatment. Don’t make a decision based on the different costs different clinics provide.

If you make wise decision about selecting the best clinic for the treatment, you don’t have to worry about the safety. These procedures are pretty safe.

The doctors will take preventive measures before, during, and after the surgery to make sure you have the best experience.


Side effects & Risks

Thinning

This is rare, but following the surgery your existing hair might think, this is not permanent and they will grow back.

Numbness

Like I said before you’ll feel numb for a few weeks, usually in the donor area. It’s not permanent so nothing to worried about. Usually lasts 3 to 18 weeks.

Infections

They might happen, but very rare since good hair care doctors will take every caution to prevent them. You will be given antibiotics before and after the procedure.

Pain

You might feel some pain, in which case you should let your doctor know and you’ll be given some pain medication.

Conclusion: Hair transplant is a serious issue that is ignored by people because of the lack of awareness. If it is affecting the quality of your life it’s worth the effort to consider treatment options.

If you are considering hair transplant but have any doubts you can get a free consultation at the best hair transplant clinics in Goa.
