Hair loss is fast becoming a common ailment that creeps up against stressed urban dwellers when we least expect it. It is interesting how folks react to the shocking truth of hair thinning differently. Some choose to ignore it, hoping that it is just a temporary issue and the problem will soon go away. Others head to salons or buy products off the shelf to ‘self-medicate’. The bad news is that many of these so-called remedies are usually purely cosmetic and benefits would probably be washed off with the next shampoo.
Why Are We Suffering From Hair Loss?
This might come as a big surprise to many, but the most common cause of thinning hair for men and women is actually a hereditary condition where sex hormones can lead to hair fall in a particular pattern. Gosh, you better start checking out the condition of your parents and grandparents hair now! Sometimes hormonal fluctuations can result in hair loss too.
Hair loss or androgenic alopecia is a genetic condition that can affect both males and females. Guys suffering from this condition can begin hair thinning as early as their teens or early 20s. With reference to the hair loss pattern visual below, you can see that it is characterised by a receding hairline and gradual disappearance of hair from the crown and frontal scalp.
Ladies with this condition typically see noticeable thinning in their 40s or later. They experience a general thinning over the entire scalp, with the most extensive hair loss at the crown.
Besides genes (which you cannot do anything about), there are a number of different causes for hair thinning but the more common ones are stress, diet, childbirth, illness and the use of certain drugs. Medical conditions such as menopause, thyroid disorders and anaemia can lead to hair thinning. Drugs that are used to treat cancer, depression, heart problems, arthritis and high blood pressure can cause hair thinning as well. Hence it is advisable to check with your doctor on the side effects of your medications if you have any of the above medical conditions.
For many Singaporeans, our environment, stress, diet and experimentation with hair style and treatments play a huge role in our hair loss issues. Air and water pollutants, as well as environmental toxins in our city together with conventional styling products and excessive amounts of sebum, have the potential to build up harmful debris on the scalp. This can block hair follicles and cause their deterioration and consequent miniaturisation of hair. It can also physically restrict hair growth or damage the hair cuticle, leading to hair that is weakened and easily broken off before its natural lifecycle has ended.
How Will Beijing 101 Treat My Hair Loss?
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the condition of our hair is a direct reflection of the condition of our Blood, Liver and Kidneys. Chinese herbs have been used for centuries on their own and together with therapies such as acupuncture and acupressure to prevent hair loss, re-grow hair and restore natural pigment to grey hair through increasing the quality of the blood and circulation to the scalp.
At Bejing 101, TCM Practitioners will be using Traditional Chinese medicine principles and premium grade Chinese herbs to help you with your hair and scalp problems. They understand that everyone has different hair constitutions and will go the extra mile to specifically customise treatment to cater to your needs.
The efficacy of the Beijing 101 solution lies in the ingredients used, along with how they are combined to bring about optimal results. When it comes to our crowning glory, let’s not take things into our hands and leave it to the good hands of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Practitioners at Beijing 101.
If you think that you can administer the Chinese herbs on your own, it would be another dangerous assumption of ‘self-medication’. As shared by one of Beijing 101 TCM practitioners, “The most significant aspect of traditional Chinese treatment is that it emphasises the coordinated use of a combination of herbs, with one herb acting as the key ingredient to improving the designated organ”. Natural hair loss treatments may extend from 3 to 12 months or longer, depending on the severity of the problem, the length of time the condition has persisted, and how your body respond to the treatment.
