I seem to be losing hair every day. Is this normal?

We normally lose about 150-200 hair every day, the vast majority of these will be replaced within 12 weeks. Hair loss normally comes in cycles, so sometimes it can be quite noticeable but in most cases, it is completely normal and does not represent long term hair loss or balding.

If you’re concerned about hair loss or you’ve noticed areas of hair thinning, you may want to book a free consultation with our expert hair loss doctors at one of our clinics in London, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester or Nottingham.

What is the hair cycle?

Each hair on our body has a “lifecycle”. For head hair, the life span is between 2 and 6 years, growing about 1.5cm per month. After the 2-6 years of growth, it has a resting phase before finally falling out. This hair should normally be replaced by a new hair, however, in baldness, the hair is not ever replaced.

Should I take medication or have surgery?

There are pros and cons to both options which will be fully explained to you at your free consultation however ultimately, the choice is yours. In trails, surgery has a better success rate.

To discuss this more thoroughly, you may wish to book a free consultation with one of our expert hair loss surgeons at one of our clinics throughout the UK.

Are hair transplants permanent?

Yes, the results are permanent.

Will a hair transplant prevent hair loss?

No, a hair transplant will not prevent future hair loss, however transplanted hair is permanent. Future hair loss can be prevented or slowed by using various medical hair loss remedies such as laser, or medications.

If a hair transplant is unlikely to be successful for you, your doctor will explain and suggest alternative options for you to consider.

How soon will hair grow after a transplant?

Every individual experiences different hair growth following transplantation, however, as a rule of thumb, new hair growth normally occurs 4-6 months after transplantation and cosmetic coverage by about 12 to 18 months.

Sometimes, results can be expedited by use of medications. This will be explained to you at your free consultation with your expert hair loss surgeon.

How soon after the procedure can I was my hair?

You can wash your hair very gently the day after the procedure with a shampoo and water solution. You should wash your hair daily in this fashion for a few weeks after the procedure.

Any strenuous physical activity should be avoided for two weeks after the procedure and then slowly reintroduced.

When can I go back to work?

We recommend taking at least a week off work following your procedure, possibly more if your work is very strenuous.

What are the risks of hair transplant surgery?

Hair transplant procedures performed by Nu Hair Clinics are very safe and have a very low risk of complications. The main complications are:
– Infection – however the risk is significantly reduced if post operative instructions are followed closely
– Reaction to local anesthetic – the risk of this is very low, however if you are found to be allergic, we have a full medical team and equipment to deal with this scenario
– In growing hairs – this can happen following the transplant and can be mildly painful. However, they are more of a nuisance than a risk and will mostly resolve themselves in time
– Swelling to the face – swelling to the forehead is quite common following the procedure, particularly if the transplant has been at the front hair line or temples. Rarely, swelling can occur to the whole face, but this normally dissipates within 1 week.
All potential risks and complications will be fully explained to you at your free consultation with your expert hair loss surgeon.

Will my hair transplant look natural?

Yes, transplanted hair follicles are only detectable under a microscope, so only those people who you choose to tell will be those who know!
