Plucking one grey hair leads to more grey hair. Dandruff signifies dry scalp. Hair Transplant does not yield natural results.
Now, these are common beliefs and statements which people all around the world have come across at some point of time. But do you now what all these three statements have in common? They are all MYTHS! Surprised? Don’t be. Everything has a few surrounding myths around them, especially something as common a topic as Hair. Let’s think about all the terms that come to the mind when we think about hair. Hair cut, trimming, bald spots, hair transplant
surgery, hair replacement surgery and so on..
Hair loss has been one of the most common problems men and women alike, face all over the world. While many people consider hair transplant surgery or hair replacement surgery to fix hair loss to some extent, many of the other are drowning in a world of false and misconceptions revolving around hair transplant. There are infinite number of myths and facts surrounding the hair and hair transplant. Here are some of them:
Myth – An older individual cannot go through a hair transplant.
Fact – This is one of the most common myths revolving around the procedure of hair transplant surgery or even hair replacement surgery. This ‘myth’ has resulted in many senior citizens to avoid the hair transplant surgery altogether. One of the major criteria for a person to undergo the hair transplant surgery, is when the surgeon checks if the hair growth post the procedure is of the same colour, texture and quality. Age of a person has nothing to do with a hair replacement surgery.
Myth – Hair Transplant works only on Men.
Fact – Another infamous myth revolving around hair replacement surgery is that this procedure works only for men. Due to this, many women facing balding have believed this myth and lived lives with their condition. But hair transplant surgery works well for men and women both.
Myth – Hair Replacement surgery gives immediate results.
Fact – In our fast-paced world, patience is indeed a rarely seen virtue. But, with the case of hair transplant surgery, patience is needed to yield the best results. Results of hair transplant surgery is not immediate and takes almost eight months to witness the initial results and it takes 9-12 months for the head to filled with hair completely. Hence, patience.
Myth – Washing hair might hamper the results of the hair transplant surgery.
Fact – We all use shampoos as a method to better the hair and prevent infections. There is a conception where, post a hair replacement surgery, shampooing the hair will hamper the recovery process. This is totally wrong as shampooing the hair is needed to prevent infection and also reduce dryness of the hair. It is necessary to use the right kind of shampoo which actually does have medicinal qualities to prevent any kind of infection.
Myth – Someone else’s body hair is used for another person’s hair replacement surgery.
Fact – This is a highly baseless myth which has been spreading around like wildfire. It is not possible to use someone else’s body or head hair for another person’s, as it will get rejected by the body. The hair should be growing in the same colour, texture and quality as well, hence the hair which is needed for the hair transplant surgery, comes from the same person. The area from where the hair is taken is called the donor site. The donor site is chosen on the basis of the quality and texture of hair.
