Hair Loss or Hair Breakage?


Loss-hair-comb-15594604XSmallSeeing a hairbrush filled with loose strands or a clump of hair fall to the floor can be unnerving. The first reaction is almost always “Oh no, I'm losing my hair!” While it's true that those hairs are no longer on your head, it doesn't necessarily mean that you're balding. It could just be that you're experiencing hair breakage.

Hair breakage can occur when hair is unhealthy or fragile. This is good news, because it generally means there are things you can do to ease the problem and retain more of your hair. Read the article to learn how to differentiate between hair breakage and hair loss in men.

We're All in this Together


Expressions-3092153XSmallMay is Hair Loss Awareness month, so we wanted to share an article that offers a glimpse into one person's struggle with hair loss, as well as some helpful tips and resources. It's always nice to remember that while we all have our own individual feelings around our struggle with hair loss, we're never in it alone. There are millions of people going through the same thing and that means there are always men and women who understand, and individuals and companies that work hard every day to find ways to restore hairlines and self-esteem.

Hair Weave, Hair Loss


Large-flowing-wave-22450269XSmallWe've blogged in the past that hair weaves, braids and extensions may cause hair loss, but a recent news segment reports that this hair loss could be both severe and irreversible. Over time, these common cosmetic procedures can cause scarring on the scalp and once you've reached that stage it becomes impossible to grow hair in those areas. Watch the special report to learn more.

A Hair Reawakening


Greasy-hairline 18801904XSmallWell-known cosmetic company L'Oreal claims to have invented a consumer product that "reawakens" hair cells. When applied to the roots, L'Oreal scientists say their liquid treatment can promote the growth of 1500 new hairs. One of the keys to this products supposed success is that it targets areas of the scalp that are prone to baldness rather than the actual hair fibers. This boosts the density and quality of the hair, giving the look of a fuller, thicker head of hair for men and women.

This new product isn't on the shelf yet, so you have some time to read up on it and decide if it sounds too good to be true.

Super Foods for Super Hair


Walnut-spinach-salad-5170531XSmallBlueberries and chia seeds. Red wine and dark chocolate. It seems every time we turn around there's a new list of "power foods" that promise to cure everything from heart disease to high cholesterol. So it should be no surprise that there's a new list of super foods that claim to be a nutrient-rich weapon against hair loss. And while it may seem too good to be true that battling balding is as easy as getting in your daily allotment of leafy greens, with healthy items like nuts, spinach and sweet potatoes on the list it seems foolish not to give it a try. Check out the article for the full list of foods, then hit the grocery store and stock up that fridge!

One Bottle for Healthy Hair


There are many vitamins and minerals that claim to boost hair health and battle balding. Now, there's no need to line your medicine cabinet shelves with bottles of supplements. Liquid Health has released a new multi-vitamin that's specially designed to promote healthy hair, skin and nails. With ingredients like biotin and zinc, this new product aims to give your hair a steady dose of the nutrients it needs to stay strong, healthy and (most importantly) on your head!

Watch Michael's Final Video


We've been following Michael's story since he had his first Bosley hair transplant procedure. It's now been 12 months since he was sitting in the doctor's office having his second hair restoration performed. We had the chance to sit down with Michael one last time to get his thoughts on how this time around compared to his first experience. Michael also shared how other people react to his new hairline and how this whole process has given him a new sense of confidence. This is one interview you won't want to miss!

Michael is Happy with his Final Results


Michael-wrap-up-image-2013Tomorrow I will have my final video interview for this year-long chronicle of my 2nd hair transplant procedure. I have to say it hardly seems possible that an entire year has gone by, but looking back at what I saw in the mirror this time last year versus what I see now is quite a change! I am slightly nervous about the video interview as I really dislike being in front of the camera, but knowing it should be the last time helps.

I’ll never forget how fortunate I am to have had this opportunity not once, but twice, and how much it’s changed me as a person. I am without a doubt more confident about my appearance and I firmly believe that my full head of hair makes me look my age. I no longer feel like I look out of place being around my peers, which is a big change from a few years ago.

Looking back on the last year specifically, I think I was slightly less emotional about this second procedure because I wasn’t building my hairline. This time I was working with the Bosley team filling in the areas on my scalp where the hair was thinner than I wanted. This time around I knew exactly what to expect as far as the process. During the first procedure a few years ago I was seeing more dramatic progress, but I to be honest the results this time are amazing, too. I plan to stop in to see the staff and surgeons in Seattle next time I am there to thank them and let them see the final results.

What Really Causes Hair Loss?


Green-man-confused-15929150 Is it the food you're eating? How about the products you're putting in your hair? Maybe it's the medications you take or the exercise program you follow. All of these things could contribute to hair loss. Read this myth-busting article to find out what might be causing (or not causing) your hairs to head for the hills.

Michael: 11 months post-procedure


Michael_A_20130215_smallThere’s not much new to report since my last blog post. It’s been 11 months since my procedure and the noticeable effects are all but gone. I still have a couple of dry spots near the scar from the donor area that will occasionally itch, but at most that creates a slight annoyance.

When I first realized I didn’t have too much to comment on in this update I was a little bummed. This has been such a big change in my life. How can there be nothing to say? But then the realization hit that I didn’t have any huge announcements or observations to make because the fuller head of hair that I now see in the mirror everyday has become part of my everyday existence. While I still do, and probably always will, appreciate this process, it’s kind of nice that I feel less like I’m on an ever-changing hair restoration journey and more like I’m just living my life with new confidence.  I never thought I’d get to this place, but now that I’m here I can say it was definitely worth the wait!
