Understanding Hair Loss.

Hair loss is a common issue affecting millions of people worldwide. It can result from various causes, including genetics, hormonal changes, medical conditions, and certain medications. Understanding the root cause of hair loss is crucial to finding the most effective treatment. In this guide, we will debunk some common hair loss myths and explore various treatment options, including medications, surgeries, and advanced laser therapy caps.

Causes of Hair loss

  • Genetics: The most common cause of hair loss is hereditary condition known as androgenetic alopecia, or male and female pattern baldness.

  • Hormonal Changes: Conditions like pregnancy, menopause, and thyroid problems can cause temporary or permanent hair loss.

  • Medical Conditions: Diseases such as alopecia areata, scalp infections, and other skin disorders can lead to hair loss.

  • Medications: Certain drugs used for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart problems, and high blood pressure can cause hair loss as a side effect.

The Myth's

The truth is, there's a lot of myth's around hair loss. Here's some of our favourites.


Wearing hats does not cause hair loss; it’s the genetic and medical factors that do.


Shampooing keeps your scalp clean and healthy. Over-washing can cause dryness, but it doesn’t cause hair loss.

"You're just old"

Hair loss can occur at any age, often starting in the twenties or thirties for those with a genetic predisposition. You're not alone.

Treatment #1


One of the first options that tends to be explored with hair loss is medication. These can be great solutions, though they can contain some undesirable side effects, including low libido, skin irritation and even dizziness.

  • Finasteride (Propecia): Finasteride is a prescription medication that helps slow hair loss and promotes regrowth in some men. It works by blocking the hormone responsible for hair loss.
  • Minoxidil (Rogaine): An over-the-counter topical treatment applied directly to the scalp. It can be used by both men and women and helps stimulate hair growth and prevent further hair loss.

Treatment #2


With advancements in modern medicine, surgical options for hair loss are more promising than ever. The primary surgical treatment is hair transplantation, although scalp reduction is also an option.

These methods are highly effective and offer permanent solutions. However, they can be costly, require recovery time, and demand long-term care to maintain their effectiveness—such as ensuring that the newly transplanted follicles are not damaged during the healing process.

For those having undergone hair transplants, they are often complemented with laser therapy to enhance and maintain results.

Treatment #3

Laser therapy

One of the most innovative and effective treatments for hair loss is laser therapy caps. These devices use low-level laser therapy (LLLT) to stimulate hair follicles, promote hair growth, and prevent further hair loss.

Here are some key considerations:

  • Number of Laser Diodes: The number of laser diodes in a cap determines the coverage and intensity of the treatment. More diodes typically mean better stimulation of hair follicles.

  • Coverage Area: Effective coverage ensures that the laser therapy reaches all areas of the scalp that need treatment. This is crucial for achieving uniform hair regrowth and maintenance.

  • Intended Use: Your goals—whether they are to regrow hair, maintain existing hair, or prevent further hair loss—will influence which cap is best for you.

  • Budget: Different models come at different price points, providing options that can fit various budgets while still offering effective treatment.
