Jeff Defied Genetics and Got a Hair System

Jeff wasn’t surprised when he started losing his hair. Family members also suffered from male pattern baldness. His hair loss made him self conscious and got in the way of his life. As a young man in his twenty’s, he decided to do something about his thinning hair. Now, he only wishes he done something sooner.

Jeff started losing his hair when he was 16 or 17. Although hard to deal with, this isn’t uncommon for men. According to the American Hair Loss Association, 25% of men will start balding before they turn 21. Jeff also knew that his hair loss was inevitable.

Like most men suffering from hair loss, he has androgenetic alopecia, more often referred to as male pattern baldness (MPB). Men (and women) lose their primarily on the crown of the head, leaving a recognizable horseshoe pattern.

While family members told him it didn’t look that bad and that he shouldn’t be worried, Jeff felt differently. When he was performing with his band, he felt bad about his hair. He would put on a hat and ignore everyone, missing out on fun and the success of his music.

“I just had to do something about it,” he says. After a consultation with a hair loss expert, Jeff decided to get a hair system. This choice blends seamlessly with Jeff’s existing hair. Our custom hair systems match the style, color, and texture of your hair.

The clear polymer base allows your skin to breathe, while being flexible and comfortable. A hair system provides an excellent solution for men and women suffering from pattern baldness or baldness if specific areas of the scalp.

Jeff loves that he took action to find a solution for his hair loss. He feels more confident than ever. Now, when he plays with his band, he’s happy to get in front of his fans. “Now I’m willing to go into the crowd and interact with people,” he says.

At Eldorado, we help all our clients find the hair loss solution that works for them. Come in for a free consultation today and get back to the life you want to be living.

Why Diet Plays a Role in Hair Loss

Diets For Healthy Hair Growth

When clients from the Baltimore area come to Eldorado, they have already made the decision to do something about their hair loss. And there are many reasons why people lose their hair. Sometimes hair loss is genetic, other times it can be caused by stress or a medical condition. But hair loss can also be tied to your diet.

If you lack certain foods, or more importantly, certain vitamins and minerals, your hair can suffer. Here are 3 ways your diet plays a role in healthy hair.

Diet Hair Loss

Eat Enough Protein

Healthy hair follicles mean healthy hair. A hair follicle is the part of the skin that surrounds the root of the hair. Hair follicles are mostly made up of protein, and if you 

don’t get enough protein in your diet, you hair suffers. Your skin will not produce new hair follicles if you don’t get enough protein and even existing healthy hair can suffer damage. People who eat too little protein may notice hair loss in two to three months.

Minerals are Important For Your Hair

Foods rich in iron also help your hair stay healthy. Studies show that low iron is linked to hair loss and may play a role in female pattern baldness. We know that some hair loss treatments, like laser light therapy, work because they increase blood flow to hair follicles.

Iron helps red blood cells transport oxygen throughout the body, including to hair follicles. It may be this growth and repair from red blood cells that keeps hair follicles, and your hair, healthy. You can find iron in leafy greens and lentils. Zinc is also important for your hair’s health.

Vitamins Promote Healthy Hair

Just like all parts of the body, our hair needs the right balance of vitamins and minerals to stay healthy. We usually think that vitamin C is helpful for keeping away colds, but it can also help our hair. Antioxidants protect hair follicles, and vitamin C has strong antioxidant properties. The body also uses vitamin C to produce collagen, a structural protein that keeps hair strong, thick, and healthy. Fruits like strawberries and citrus are high in vitamin C.

B vitamins include biotin, B6 and B12, all vitamins that studies show can be linked to hair loss. A lack of biotin can lead to hair loss and brittle nails. Other B vitamins help produce red blood cells, which transport oxygen throughout the body. Again, without this process, your hair follicles might not get what they need to stay healthy. B vitamins appear in grains, meats, and leafy vegetables, but proteins that come from animals are the only source of B12.

In general, a balanced diet can keep your hair healthy. There are certain situations, like genetics and medical conditions and treatments, that will cause hair loss regardless of your diet. If you are worried about what might be causing your hair loss, come into Eldorado for your free consultation today. Our experts work with you to find out what is causing your hair loss, and the best solution for you.

Which Adhesive is Right For Your Hair System?

A hair system often offers one of the best hair solutions for men and women suffering from hair loss. Hair systems provide a natural look that blends with your existing hair. At Eldorado, we create a custom hair system that matches your hair’s existing texture and color. Another important factor in making a hair system look natural is the adhesive that attaches the system to your scalp. While old “rugs” clipped in and looked bad and blew off easily (cue bad hair system jokes), today’s hair systems are attached with medical-grade adhesives that give you a natural look that’s still comfortable.
