What is Hair Loss?
Hair is important to everyone's appearance and self-image. You'll probably feel shocked, anxious and angry when you're told you'll lose your hair as a result of treatment. Some people feel that this threatens their feelings of self confidence.
Many people find it helps to talk to the staff caring for them. Expressing how you feel about losing your hair can help you adjust to the idea. Talking to other people who have come to terms with their hair loss may also help.
Your hair will nearly always grow back once you have finished your treatment. An exception to this is mentioned later (see Hair Loss With Radiotherapy). This section provides information about:

care of your scalp
how to make the most of hats, scarves, make-up and jewellery
We hope it will help you to cope with your alopecia and make the most of your appearance while you wait for your hair to regrow.
Effects of Hair Loss
It has been reported that 3 out of 5 men will suffer from some degree of hair loss before the age of 50. Women are not immune either and 1 in 4 will experience hair loss and thinning hair. After menopause, women become even more susceptable.
Although hair serves no vital function for health maintenance, it is often viewed as our "crowning glory." A full head of hair is synonymous with youth, beauty, vitality confidence -- the same characteristics we wish to hold onto as we grow older. Hair loss can chip away at these important building blocks for self-esteem and self-confidence. As our self-image becomes more negative (due to hair loss), self-defeating depression can creep up on us, threatening our quality of life.
Some men have learned to accept and live with hair loss. Others choose to be more proactive and "do something about it." And when the media blasts images of the ideal woman with a beautiful mane, the psychological effects can be damaging to say the least.
Hair Loss Treatment Options
We are fortunate to be living in a time in which hair loss can be completely defeated. For those men and women who choose to take a proactive approach to solving hair loss, there are only 4 LEGITIMATE treatment options.
2. Finasteride (not for women)
4. Surgery (flaps and scalp reduction)
5. Hair Transplants
Other treatment options include several anti-androgens for women prescribed by their Dermatologists. A drug called Dutasteride is showing promising results in it's trial studies.
Of these options, hair transplants have the largest guarantee of replacing hair. Implanted grafts have a 99-100 percent survival rate. Hair transplants are also more effective in producing good results in the frontal and temporal regions then minoxidil and finasteride.
But used in combination with any of the above treatment option or used exclusively, hair transplants are an effective tool for reversing hair loss.
21st Century Hair Transplants
Choosing to undergo a hair transplant procedure is not one a man or woman comes to lightly. The possible outcome and costs are just two of the main factors behind having a hair transplant procedure done.

Hair transplant surgery has improved tremendously over the last 20 years and the days of hair plugs with "barbie-doll" hair results are long-gone and remain a part of hair transplant history.
"...the age of single hair, micro-, and mini-grafting has arrived. Through the use of these variable sized hair grafts, along with new and improved instrumentation, the accomplished hair transplantation surgeons can create a natural hair appearance that is appropiate for each individual." - International Society of Hair Restoration Sugery
