Hair Recovery Series Part 3 - Hair Transplants For African American Women

If you are still struggling with hair loss due to alopecia, hair transplants may be the solution for you. In part three of our hair recovery series we will talk about how hair transplants can be a hair recovery option for women with alopecia.

What the "Natural Hair Movement" Has Not Addressed

One of the issues with the natural hair movement when it began several years ago, was that even though it encouraged self-love and empowerment, it did not address the women, who after trying to “go natural,” struggled to because of hair loss.

Hair loss can come from many forms, but more commonly it can happen from damaging hair care practices. Some of these techniques could have been done by a hair stylist or through relaxers, perms, glue in weaves, sewn in weaves, or tight braids. Other hair loss could have been caused by inconsistent hair care like irregular washing, over-manipulation (i.e. hand in hair syndrome), too many protective hairstyles, over use of heat styling, or not conditioning/deep conditioning or moisturizing the hair regularly.

When it comes to natural hair loss, you can search the internet to find a host of solutions to regrow your hair. Everything from onion rubs to peppermint essential oil, Jamaican Black castor oil or pumpkin seed oil has been claimed to help with hair loss. Many of these oils may work for some, but for others the results are still lacking.

The problem with most women is that they try one of these methods, but are not consistent and therefore do not see results. If you are not that far along in your hair loss, first try to follow natural remedies for CCCA Alopecia, Traction Alopecia, Female Pattern baldness with natural remedy hair recovery steps. If these methods still do not work, then it may be time to try something different.

Hope for Those with Alopecia

The best method with alopecia is to catch it early and to immediately stop the practices that are causing it. This directly applies to alopecia like CCCA Alopecia or Traction Alopecia which can be caused by diet and external hair styling practices. The key to helping with these two types of alopecia is to reduce inflammation internally and externally.

However, there are times when the adage “catch it early” does not happen. So what then? If the scalp is constantly being inflamed, hair cannot grow and the inflammation also leads to scarring. The first step is to reduce the inflammation. The second step is to prevent scarring. Finally, the last step is to continue to regularly wash your natural hair, keep it moisturized and consult a dermatologist about hair restoration surgery.

This is where hair transplants can be an option. As shown in the hair transplant update video, Vlogger Jasmine Rose finishes her journey of hair restoration surgery.

“I Felt my Self-Esteem about My Edges Return”

Hair transplants can be, although a relatively expensive option, a solution for those who still would like to regrow their natural hair. As Jasmine Rose describes in her 1-year video update, the process of hair regrowth does take time, but in the end it can be worth it to have your natural hair restored.
