• Setting Hair Restoration Goals

    Setting goals may be the most challenging aspect of planning hair restoration.  Many of us can be emotionally devastated by our hair loss.  We tend to want to fix what’s missing right now.

    Until hair cloning, hair multiplication, gene therapy, or anything else becomes viable and affordable, we are left to work within the confines of our available donor supplies.  And for the sake of our discussion, our references will be to scalp donor.   Hair harvested from other regions of the body are methodology still in their infancy stages and because of the lack of consistent results (yields), we cannot and will not rely on it as a realistic or feasible donor source.  Hopefully that will change in the near future.

    Hair restoration is an all encompassing term and extends beyond the realm of surgery.  First and foremost, patients have to decide if they will use the available medications approved by the FDA for treating MPB. Interestingly enough, the earlier an individual decides to begin treatment after formal diagnosis, the better overall results achieved including regrowth.  These medications are Propecia (men only, finasteride 1mg daily), and Rogaine (minoxidil 3% & 5% strength).   Why is this an important element in setting one’s goals? We know that MPB is a progressive disorder in its nature so without the effective use of hair loss medications, the loss will continue in its predestined course.  Read more ›

  • Beyond Facebook: The Future of Social Networking For The Hair Transplant Community Is Here

    Whether you are a fan of online social networks or not, the truth is they’re enormously popular for one simple reason, they make it easier for people to connect and share information. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, the likelihood of you being a member of at least one online social network is pretty high.

    We first became involved in hair loss social networking when our sister site, The Women’s Hair Loss Project (WHLP) launched it’s all female hair loss network in January 2008. Today, The Women’s Hair Loss Project site and Social Network is the most recognized site in the world for women suffering with hair loss, and ranks #1 in Google and Yahoo. WHLP has been featured in several publications and by media outlets including the New York Times, The The Atlanta Journal Constitution, and MSN.com. Dermatologists from around the world are now recommending The Women’s Hair Loss Project to their female patients as a place to find support, compassion and understanding from those who can relate to their suffering most, other women dealing with hair loss.

    As the first and most successful online social network in the hair loss industry, The Women’s Hair Loss Project Network pioneered the concept of niche social networking in our field. While others have attempted to duplicate the Network, even utilizing the exact same software, The Women’s Hair Loss Project has been the only hair loss focused social network to experience such mainstream success.  We are proud that our sister site has made such a groundbreaking splash and have been inspired by this success to create an online social Network for a niche community as well. We are proud to announce the launch of  HairTransplantCommunity.com!

    HairTransplantCommunity.com is the first and only social network dedicated entirely to surgical hair restoration. This community is a safe and empowering place for hair transplant veterans, physicians and those considering hair restoration surgery to share their experiences, their struggles, their strength and their hope with others who understand. Share your hair transplant journey through video, blogs, and photos. Hairtransplantcommunity.com is your personal hair restoration network! I look forward to seeing you there.
