Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Transplant
For some of us who are always on the search for ways to promote hair growth or solutions to hair loss etc., more than once we would come across the topic about hair transplant, and not just any kind of hair transplant, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) hair transplant. As foreign as it sounds, this might just be your next solution to balding, hair loss and hair thinning problems. So read on to know more about PRP.
What is PRP?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a medical procedure/treatment that enhances tissue repair and healing. PRP is not something new, in fact it is widely used in many surgical specialties including oral surgery, neurosurgery as well as plastic and cosmetic surgery. When talking about hair restoration, PRP is performed for promoting hair growth by naturally stimulating the hair follicles with active growth factors that are found in the PRP. Patients will expect to see an increase in the number of hair and hair density 2 to 3 months after the procedure, hence achieving a life-long dream of having thick and full-looking hair.
How does it work?
Before the procedure, PRP is extracted from the blood by treating the blood in a centrifuge, usually the source of the blood is from the patient itself. Depending on the clinic, some may treat the extracted PRP in a special system to eliminate unnecessary proteins and increase the concentration of the platelets to almost 3 times the normal concentration in blood. Once the PRP is ready, it is injected into the patient’s scalp for multiple times – either over the entire head or focusing on specific areas only – by using a micro needle. A single session usually lasts about 60 minutes, but when combined with hair transplant the session may last for a longer time. For more information about hair transplant, check out our blog at https://toppikmalaysia.com/blog/.
Who is it for?
PRP is suitable for anyone who has been experiencing balding, hair loss and hair thinning for a very long time. The procedure can be done with or without surgery. For patients who are medically unfit for surgery, this is a great option for them. In other cases, patients who are going for surgical hair transplant can choose to have PRP included to boost the results of hair growth and to help with scalp healing process after the transplantation. Although PRP is medically proven to be successful, the results vary from people to people, some may even need more sessions to achieve the desired results.
Is there any side effects to be aware of?
PRP is immunological neutral since it is extracted from the patient’s blood itself. Rest assured patients are safe from allergic, hypersensitivity and foreign-body immunologic reactions. During the procedure itself, patients may experience some pain, pinpoint bleeding and redness at the injected areas. After the procedure, patients may experience a feeling of “fullness” or “tightness” in the scalp which last up to a day or two after the procedure.
Are there other options?
Of course, PRP may not be everyone’s cup of tea, especially those who have a fear of medical procedures. The fact about post-hair transplantation recovery period must also be taken into consideration. A complete recovery usually takes about 2 months, and for achieving the full results will take at least another year. However, here is another great solution to those who just do not have the time and want instant results within a snap of a finger: Toppik Hair Building Fibers, instantly revitalizing your whole appearance and self-esteem by achieving thicker and fuller looking head in less than 30 seconds! Its easy application with minimum fuss makes Toppik Hair Building Fibers a product that’s favoured by many. Don’t miss out, currently Toppik Hair Building Fibers is offering free shipping for online orders.

Promising Hair Loss Treatments and Cures 2017
The search for the best hair loss treatment and cure is never ending. People are losing hair on a daily basis all around the world. It is found that 70% of men and 40% of women suffer from genetically caused hair loss (androgenic alopecia) in their lifetime. Since a huge percentage of the population has this issue, a permanent cure would be a great relief to the world. A scientific breakthrough would make quite a profit to those who first claims the patent for their innovation.
In this global day and age, pharmaceutical companies and researchers are constantly coming up with options. It won’t be long before the ideal solution prevails and the world’s issue of hair loss can be diminished. Here are a few possible hair treatment options, where the positives and negatives are discussed.
1. Stem Cells
Hair transplantation as we know today involves harvesting hair from the back of the scalp to be transplanted to the balding areas. There is a disadvantage to this, as there are limitations to the number of hairs that can be harvested before the area appears thin. Therefore, growing stem cells could solve that problem. By growing dermal papilla cells, hair is said to be cloned or multiplied to provide an unlimited source of hair for transplantation. It would not be restricted to only existing hair follicles. Recent research has shown that this method can be implemented in the future, as seen from the experiments of growing human hair on the skin of mice, when stem cells were grafted onto mice skin. As this is only small-scale, future research would be focused on reproducing the same favourable results in human trials. If this proves to be successful, it could transform a person from completely bald to a head full of hair.
2. New Drugs
Drugs are continuously being formulated to becoming the optimum hair growth medicine. Every opportunity is not ignored, as drugs usually used for other illnesses such as cancer are now being studied for other possible uses, including curing hair loss. A new category of medicine is discovered, called JAK inhibitors. Also known as Janus kinase inhibitors, these molecules has uses of stopping and preventing inflammation. Studies have been made on two specific drugs, Tofacitinib and Ruxolitinib, which resulted in very positive findings. Almost all patients who were treated with the drug experienced seemingly miraculous hair regrowth within months. Unfortunately, there were certain side effects after prolonged use of these drugs, such as headaches, hypertension, respiratory infections, and an increase in liver toxins. Not only that, hair loss continued to occur once treatment was stopped.
Many consumers would be concerned with the safety of these drugs, and whether such drugs would be approved by health ministries. However, further research is currently underway, and it would not be long before the drugs become perfectly developed, in order to take a big step towards the cure of hair loss.
3. “Vampire Treatment”
Intriguingly enough, the term vampire is used because the cure is extracted from the patient’s own blood. Also known as platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy, it is seen to play a very significant role in treatment. Once blood is drawn from the body, it is processed and modified to be injected to the scalp. The new active blood flow energises the scalp, restoring hair growth. The treatment can also be combined with other medications and procedures.
All these promising discoveries are indeed encouraging quicker and more effective ways of solving hair loss and balding. Although they are still under research and are not yet practised commercially, they open doors to the world in determining the ultimate cure to hair loss. Readers are advised to consult a health professional before attempting new treatments.
However, while waiting for positive results of hair loss treatments, Toppik Hair Building Fibers provides an instant solution, where a full head of hair can be achieved in only 30 seconds!

Know Your Hair Types
What is your hair type? Most people would answer curly or straight but there are actually more types than that. There are even multiple hair typing systems that classified these types but the foundation of most systems is built upon the Andre Walker System. Knowing your hair type means better knowing yourself, your genetic inheritance, easier to search for hair products and the best way to wear and style your hair. Hair typing systems were created as a uniform set of descriptors when discussing the many varieties of curls, coils, and waves.
To discover your natural texture, clean your hair off any styling products by thorough washing before examining your strands in front of the mirror. The Andre Walker System can be broken down into 4 sections (Numbered 1 to 4) with 3 separate subsets (labelled A to C) respectively. Sometimes, individual could have a head with a mix of two or three categories.
Type 1 Hair (1a,1b,1c)
-All Type 1 hair are naturally straight hair. Type 1a hair is very fine, very soft and the straightest of all three subsets. This make this hair type the most greasy and oily of all because natural oils from scalp can travel easily to the tip of the hair since there are no curls or kinks to disrupt this oil movement. This means it has to be washed more often.
-Type 1b hair is a little bit coarser, thicker and has more volume than Type 1a hair. Type 1b hair also tends to have fuller strands with a slight bend at the ends.
-Type 1c hair is the most common among Asian women. It is the most coarse and thick and has the highest tendency to frizz compared to the other type 1 hair subtypes.
Type 2 Hair (2a,2b,2c)
-Type 2 hair are naturally wavy and forms an ‘S’ shape. These hair types are not as oily as Type 1 due to their wave textures, but these are not dry as well.
-Type 2a wavy hair is made of fine or thin hair that has a “definite “S” pattern with a natural sheen. However, this type of waves usually lack definition and volume.
-Type 2b wavy hair has a medium texture, tends to frizz more than 2a especially at the crown and it is slightly more resistant to hair styling.
-Type 2c wavy hair is the thickest, coarsest, most frizzy and most resistant to styling of all the Type 2 wavy hair. Sometimes Type 2c hair will contain a mixture with Type 3a.
Type 3 Hair (3a,3b,3c)
-Type 3 hair appears to be straight when wet but returns to curly once dried. The level of curliness and fizziness depends on humidity. Type 3 hair is very voluminous and sheen and is fairly easy to style.
-Type 3a hair has well defined spring loopy ‘S’ pattern curls which are pretty lose and have volume or fullness but it is much prone to frizzing, and easier to lose definition when compared with any of the other type 3 hairs.
-The 3b hair is much voluminous than type 3a but has smaller diameter i.e. about the sharpie marker size. Its texture is coarser and less shiny when compared to 3a.
-Hair type 3c is the coarsest and most prone to frizz in type 3 hair. It has well defined, corkscrew like coils (curly with spiral), whose size range from those of a pencil to a small sized marker. It also has slightly a greater density, and volume.
Type 4 Hair (4a,4b,4c)
Type 4 hair is the common hair types for African but with so many interracial marriages and genetic crossover, anyone can have this type of hair. It is called the natural kinky hair or coily hair. This is the coarsest, driest and most knotted of all the other types of hair in the system. It has lots of turns and twists and many strands packed together. This texture makes it hard for it to retain moisture and to look shiny as well as able to hide the true length of the hair. Its appearance can range from being fine to wiry to course.
-Type 4a hair tends to be very fragile, tightly coiled, and can feature curly patterning. The spirals are about the diameter of a crochet needle that could be fine or wiry texture with a relatively high density.
-Type 4b kinks form a ‘Z’ shape and tends to range from being fine to wiry to coarse and it is densely packed and coiled tightly with capability of shrinking for up to 75% to its length.
-Type 4c hair can also range from fine, thin, soft to coarse with densely packed strands. Type 4c coils look identical to Type 4b except that the curls are tight kinks with less definition and less curly pattern.

4 Styling Tricks for Hair Loss
Genetic diseases, non-genetic diseases, stress, lifestyles and hormonal changes cause hair loss in human population. Although losing strands on top of your head poses no life-threatening situation but it does cause more stress, embarrassment, depression as well as hurting the self-esteem to the sufferer.

A straightforward solution to cover up balding spot is to choose a hairstyle that is suitable and capable for coverage. You can choose haircut that makes the most of what you have and gives you the appearance of more volume. If you are having your hair long and you are experiencing hair thinning problem, it is time to chop them off as long strands, without proper care, can stress and drag down the hair, causing it to fall off easily. An extra short pixie cut is very fashionable and can disguise your thinning hair perfectly. A layered bob cut could also cover up your balding spot by providing a lot of bouncy volumes. If you insist on keeping long hair, then try some styling techniques such as side braids, low ponytail or a top knot, whichever would best cover your thinning area. You can also change your haircut by doing small simple alteration such as getting some bangs or getting an asymmetry ending cut, which works well to camouflage and draw attention away from undesirable area. If you are still indecisive about a haircut, you can always throw a casual, tousled hairstyle before going out as tousled texture is a great trick for preventing “peek-a-boo” scalp and giving your hair more volume.

Hair Under The Microscope
Hair shapes human physical appearances. It became a feature that people are obsessed with and are willing to put in effort and money to enhance it. Salons are appearing like mushrooms after rain in every corner in the country. Uncountable individuals are making a living by becoming barber, hairdresser and hair specialists. A lot of people are doing sales for hair products too. Hair products just keep on increasing since there is an ever-growing market for these products. Although people generally spend a lot of time caring and grooming their hair, not many of them are aware of the true image of hair under the microscope.
Figure 1 The image of a hair shaft enlarged under an electron microscope.
Typical human hair consists of the follicle and a shaft. A follicle or fondly known as the hair bulb is a structure beneath the skin of actively growing cells which eventually produce hair (hair shaft). Cells continually divide in the lower part of the bulb. The rapid divisions of cells at the base of the follicle pushed upward forming hair shaft as they harden and undergo pigmentation. The shaft are dead tissues protruding above the skin and composed of three layers, namely the medulla, cortex and the cuticle.
Figure 2 The cross-section showing three main components of a hair shaft.
Cuticle is the transparent outermost layer. It’s made of scales that overlap each other with the free ends of the scales directed toward the tip of the shaft. The scaly cuticle is to protect the inner layers of the hair. This delicate protective layer minimizes the movement of water in and out of the underlying cortex as well as holding the whole hair structure together. In a healthy condition, the cuticle will be smooth, shiny and intact. However, prolonged exposure to chemical, pollutions and harsh weather can lift the cuticle and disrupt this balance.
As shown in the pictures above, when the cuticle layer is perfectly closed, hair looks glossy and doesn’t tend to tangle or break. When a cuticle scales are raised or wide open, the scaly hair strands will rub against each other causing tangles. To avoid this, we should protect hair under harsh weather by wearing hats or using umbrellas, we should avoid chemical ingredients in hair care and we should minimize the usage of hot styling tools, and other product or treatments that is harmful to the hair.
The layer just beneath the cuticle is the cortex which is also the largest part of the hair shaft, forms the main bulk of hair. The cortex consists of long keratin filaments and consisted of compact, elongated cells and it is the part of the hair that contains pigment granules that give hair its colour. Pigment distribution varies from shaft to shaft, which sometimes causes uneven hair colour distribution. The health of the cortex depends largely on the integrity of the cuticle protecting it.
The central core of a hair shaft is the medulla but this component is not always present, especially in hairs with a thinner diameter. If present, it consists of a thin core of transparent cells and composed largely of air spaces as it often appears to be a hollow tube. However, this hollow tube could be filled with cells in fragmented form, continuous or even double. The medulla can contain pigment granules or unpigmented.
Using a single hair shaft, forensic scientist could find out many information of an individual including collecting DNA for identification purpose, testing for drugs or nutritional deficiencies in their body system.
Since we know aware of how hair under the microscope looks like. It is easier to illustrate the mechanism of hair keratin fibres that that is popularly used to enhance the cosmetic value of hair. The premium keratin in Toppik Hair Fibres is nearly identical to human hair, allowing the fibres to blend naturally and undetectably. The natural Keratin used by Toppik has an innate static charge that ensures their fibres adhere to each hair shaft regardless of any hair type. Toppik’s innovative technology allows the fibers to resist wind, rain and perspiration while filling in all the thinning area and balding spots on the head.

Reversing Hair Loss Naturally
In comparison with natural healing remedies, modern pharmaceuticals have been in use for a relatively short period of time. Aborigine tribes across the centuries have been using natural treatments and medicines made from plants and animals as they believe that these natural remedies are the perfection that nature has provide us with in order for us to survive. Pharmaceuticals are the achievement from the desires of mankind to imitate and improve upon what nature has given us.
In many admirations, natural remedies are far more progressive then modern pharmaceutical remedies which more often than not, only deal with soothing the symptoms rather than dealing with the underline health issue itself. While there is no disagreeing the efficiency of modern medicine in treating a wide range of ailments for many individuals, they do however have some side effects. Many of synthetic chemicals used came with a long list of possible side effects attributed to them. Every medical conditions are different and every individual is unique so it is only normal that modern medicine did not work for some of them, or it might be that they want to try natural medicine first or even in conjunction with modern medicine. The case can be applied to all sort of health issues including the disorder of hair loss.
In the United States, Saw Palmetto extract is ranked as the third most sold herbal dietary supplements. This amazing plant is able to treat a number of illnesses from headaches, colds, coughs and asthma to chronic bronchitis, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, and migraine. It’s also used as a natural remedy to increase urine flow, to enhance sexual drive and to curb hair loss naturally. Here we will focus on how the extract of this plant works in supporting hair growth. As people age, their male androgen hormone, scientifically called 5α-Dihydrotestosterone or DHT in short, increases. This DHT causes hair follicles to shrink, resulting in a decrease of hair production. Thanks to the trait of Saw palmetto being anti-DHT, the DHT production could be blocked, preventing the shrinking of hair follicles, making it beneficial for hair growth.
Although no minimum effective dose has been established so far, a dose of 160 milligrams taken twice daily has been tested to produce constructive results in clinical research studies. The time taken for the supplement to be effective may take as long as 30 days.
Ashwagandha has so many restorative properties that it is called as the Indian Ginseng. It is a small shrub with yellow flowers and red fruit with the extract typically taken from the berries or roots of the plant. This antioxidant herb shows optimistic results in numerous minor and major health problems including but not limited to skin conditions, inflammation, insomnia, anxiety, asthma, skin conditions, hormonal imbalance, dementia and Parkinson’s disease.
Just like ginseng, Ashwagandha is a type of adaptogen herb, a unique class of healing plants that are able to help balance, restore and protect the body. Adaptogen aids in adaptation to stress and lowering the aging hormone, cortisol. Since a healthy body could be traced back to heathy hair, Ashwagandha is great for growing thicker hair. When included in hair care preparations, it manages dandruff and greasy hair, increases scalp circulation and improve hair growth. The powerful antioxidants in Ashwagandha fight the free radicals that causes hair greying, preserving natural hair colour.
Taking one 6 mg capsule of Ashwagandha herbs daily helps to eliminates toxins in the body and purifies your system, while treating several hair problems on the go.
Pumpkin Seed Oil
Pumpkin plays all kind of roles, from getting Cinderella to his prince, to scaring kids in Halloween to the root of your hair, inhibiting DHT formation throughout the body and contains fatty acids that support thick hair. As mentioned in the first point in this article, DHT does a lot of damage to the hair follicles to the extent that hair production slows and even halts. Pumpkin seed oil contains the phytosterol beta-sitosterol which reduces the damage done by DHT by inhibiting the conversion of useful testosterone into the harmful hormone. The mechanism is possible because the oil of the see has a steroid known as delta-7-sterol which competes for the same receptors as DHT.
According to the official study available at the US National Library of Medicine, patients who took two capsulated pumpkin seed oil in the morning and two in the evening before breakfast and dinner. Each capsule contained 100mg of pumpkin seed oil, for a total of 400mg of pumpkin seed oil daily. Another source suggested the taking of 1 tablespoon (8grams) of liquid pumpkin seed oil daily.
Biotin & Vitamin B5
Biotin, or Vitamin B7, is a water-soluble vitamin that’s a part of the vitamin B complex. Biotin can be found in food such as fish, eggs, organ meats, avocado, cauliflower, berries, legumes and mushrooms. Biotin and Vitamin B5 are nutrients that helps us keep a youthful, attractive appearance since it plays a major part in maintaining the health of our hair, nails and skin. Among others, it helps to protect skin from acne, fungal infections, rashes and severe dryness and cracking. Hence, biotin is commonly added to hair and skin beauty products, however it is believed to be not very well absorbed through the skin and must be ingested to reach maximum efficiency.
Zinc and Omega 3
Experts believe that deficiency in zinc can lead to deterioration of the protein structure that makes up our hair follicles. Weakened hair follicles are the main cause of hair shedding and hair loss. Zinc is also known to play a vital role in DNA and RNA production. This is essential for the normal division cell of hair follicle cells, leading to healthier hair growth. Examples of food rich in zinc are eggs, chickpeas, oysters, sweet potatoes, spinach and nuts. Omega 3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties that effectively prevent hair follicles from shrinking and inflammation. Examples of omega-3 rich foods are natto, walnuts, egg yolk, salmon, mackerel, tuna, white fish, sardines, and hemp seeds. If you don’t eat enough omega-3 foods, take one to two capsules or one tablespoon of a top-notch fish oil supplement to help reduce inflammation that causes hair disorders.
