USING THE HOT ROLLERS FOR YOUR HAIR

If before the straight hair reigned in the great international parades, today the trend points in opposite direction. The waves are quite quoted by the movement and beauty that they print on the hair, and here we will teach you to obtain those desired curls.

The rollers can give open or closed movement to the waves of the hair. For a long time, the image we associate with the artificial rollers is a small circular artifact that helped to shape the movement in the hair. This aesthetic tool known as “hot rollers” promised to model the hair in a short time, without mistreating it and without the exposure to high temperatures that produce electrical devices like the dryer or the iron. Definitely, it is a very effective way to finish with extremely smooth hair, and best of all, without any damage to the strands.

Well, although this is a technique of old times, it achieves very good results on the hair, helping to keep the strands hydrated and full of life, so we will teach you how to relive this ancient procedure of beauty.

Achieve 100% natural curls

The first thing you must do to get these waves is to place the hot curls on clean and smooth hair.

Then, while heating the circular artifact, separate the hair into sections to place the rollers. The idea is to divide it into two parts, upper and lower.

It is necessary to know the desired result, because of the bigger the roll and the strand; the smoother it will remain, while if you prefer smaller curls you must make it more closed.

To achieve a smooth effect with movement, the best is to choose wide curls and divide the parts of below and of above into three and four sections, respectively. The frontal tufts are very important because they will mold the face. They need to be separated and stylized according to the final result.

The hair is a very compound machine consisting of a rod free part which emerges at the surface of the scalp and of a root (bulb), located in a hair follicle. Their number varies between 100 000 and 150 000. A hair live on average five years, then dies and falls to be replaced by another, and this about 25 times. The life of a hair is thus very weak and in case of repeated attacks, it gradually may no longer be replaced. It is therefore essential to take care of her hair, starting with the well washed.

Good health requires good hygiene

Today, two major techniques are used by practitioners: the method called the “strip” and FUE. The Amar doctor, dermatologist specializing in hair transplantation, we said all the hair transplant to make his selection with confidence.

If baldness is a typically male problem, some women also put up with from hair loss. In recent years, surgery has advanced allowing painless interventions under local anesthesia and without significant downtime.

But we opted for one or the other technique, in both cases the plan is to implant placement. “What makes the difference is how to remove the bulbs,” explained Dr. Amar. Samples that are always in the same place, at the back of the skull in the occipital area, where the hair is the richest, most provided. “In this area, the hair is programmed to last. They have a longer life expectation than the rest of the skull.”

The method of strip

Surgery adjacent to the calvitieLe principle: A horizontal strip of 1 cm wide is removed under local anesthesia over a length which is from 12 up to 23 cm that is to say a maximum of one ear to the other. Then, the micro-strip is cut to get the bulbs that are implanted and thus redistributed to the bald areas. The dermatologist closes the sampling area using sutures which will depart a thin horizontal linear scar of a millimeter wide at the back of the head. “This method is used by 90% of practitioners because it provides a large amount of good quality implants,” says the professional.

For who? This technique is designed at both men and women. The coverage capacity is larger than the FUE and the strip is particularly suitable for large balding.

The duration of the operation: It lasts 2 to 3 hours during these people, 1 200 to 1500 implants were detached and reimplanted into the bald areas or hair an amount ranging from 3 000 to 5 000 hairs (each implant carries 1

Hormonal changes and hair loss

Hormonal changes and hair loss

Alopecia is the generic medical term hair loss on a part or the whole scalp. This term comes from the Greek “alopex”, meaning fox. This animal loses in fact, once a year, its brutally hair.

Hereditary androgenetic alopecia, the most common, affects mostly men (70% of cases). Acute alopecia causes in turn a faster and more substantial hair loss.

Hair loss in women: hormones frontline

One cause of alopecia in women: hormone disorders connected to different periods of life, consecutive with taking treatment or endocrine disorders. This is called androgenic alopecia.

If significant and unexplained hair loss, it is then advisable to ask a dermatologist who will sort through the various factors traditionally implicated:

  • The Endocrinological disorders affect the main hormone producing glands such as the thyroid (hyper or hypothyroidism) and more hardly ever the pituitary gland which then starts to idle (this is called hypopituitarism) or, on the contrary, produce too much prolactin (a hormone to the initiation and maintenance of lactation).
  • There may also be an excess of androgens (male hormones secreted by the ovaries and adrenal glands) induced by the attendance of micro polycystic ovaries through menopause or childbirth. The decrease of female hormones associated cause then depletion of the scalp and thus hair loss, sensitized by too much male hormone.
  • Alopecia can also be derived from a genetically planned hypersensitivity of the hair follicle (hair bulb) without androgen these are excessively products. This is called hyperandrogenism.

Hormones and hair loss: men also concerned

If alopecia in men is usually inherited (95% of cases), hormones can also get involved and make the situation worse. As for women, the scalp can be chiefly sensitive to male hormones and accentuate the natural fall of the hair. This is the meeting between androgens and an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase that the problem arises. On a healthy follicle, both substances coexist smoothly and the hair is disturbed in any way in its development. In the case of a genetically predisposed follicle, it will observe its accelerated cycle, while imposing the hair grows a rhythm / drop / reject accelerated gradually exhausting the follicle and causing ultimately a root in the

Baldness, an unavoidable fall

Baldness, an unavoidable fall?

Baldness is a primarily male phenomenon. Hair loss occurs on average between 25 and 35, but may begin later.

The signs are plentiful hair loss, with a gradual release of the forehead, above the temples or crown of the head.

The major reason of baldness is an excess of male hormones (androgenic alopecia). This excess is hereditary: If your father is bald, you will have great chances of being. In fact, male hormones will go faster the life cycle of the hair, making it faster fall. Other causes may be taken into account. Thus, the constant stress or prolonged anxiety can promote the fall. An unbalanced diet, deficient in certain vitamins (H, B6 …), may also be involved. Beware also too aggressive shampoo for the scalp or frequent dyes.

Some medications can also cause major hair loss (amphetamines, anticoagulants ). Please read the list of undesirable effects on the notices.

Treatments

Treatment depends of course of the case. When hair loss is due to an external agent (drug, vitamin deficiency …), it will be easily resolved. By cons, when baldness is due to a surplus of hormones, it is necessary to use specific techniques.

Medication

There are certain medications that emerge effective against baldness. In any case, most hair loss is detected, the sooner action will have the effect. The most frequently used treatments are those based on minoxidil. Indeed, this slows hair loss and from time to time causes a regrowth. It exists in form of lotion to be applied twice per day. Treatment should be followed “for life”: Once started, it must not be stopped if we want to keep the profits. Other effective actions are in the form of tablets. In all cases, we must of course seek medical attention. You must know that these treatments do not necessarily work for all patients and some allergies or side effects are sometimes feared. Furthermore, their cost is quite high.

Transplants

In addition to drugs, one of the best effective treatments remains the graft. There are quite a lot of types of grafts, as appropriate. In general, the method used is the micro transplant. It is in fact
