There are always a lot of questions from our clients. NEWhair will answer at all the questions.

HAIR LOSS

You can become bald for a lot of reasons, environmental, stress, bad habits but the most common is when it runs in the family. Usually men become bold but even a small percent of women have this problem due to male hormones. For this reason the hair loss is even called androgenic (relating to male sex hormones)
Do you become bald only for inheriting it? No, in addition of the inherit and the individual hormone situation there are other causes, eg: stress, illnesses, alimentary deficiency and some medicines.
Some researches have demonstrated that a constant stress is a cause of the hair loss.
It’s not only a psychological stress but even physical. For women a physical stress could be a severe loss of weight that can cause the hair loss.
Both for man and woman, hair transplantation (FUE technique) is the permanent resolution.
