The scientists are now making breakthroughs on balding as it is found to have an impact on mental health. The men above 50 Years and women above 65 Years have found to have hair loss issues. Everybody wants full and luscious hair on their head to have a perfect picture for their dating app, selfies, and other corporate platforms as well. Hair growth is considered to be a sign of youthfulness in this modern era. In this digital world, the pattern of baldness observed in male and female is found to have a connection with mental health. According to Founder Dr. Coen Gho from the Hair Science Institute, the lifestyle and stress levels are the basic reason behind hair loss problems.
The appearance is considered to be an important factor for many and the baldness issue during the twenties and thirties tend to mentally break an individual. The reports show 50% men and 50% women to have baldness issues and they seem to be having drugs to deal with the hair loss. During the 1550BC, the Egyptians were found to have their scalps rubbed with donkey hooves and hippopotamus fat to stop baldness. The drugs such as minoxidil and finasteride reduce the hair loss but not completely stop it. These medications are found to have some unpleasant side effects such as unsuitable for women and cause erectile dysfunction in some men. The hair is considered as an organ that has its own rhythmic cycle and hormones requirements. With age, the scalp becomes sensitive to the hormones like dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The miniaturization process that leads to no visible hair is what the researchers are finding answers for. The psychological impact on sufferers is found to have a huge impact that is incurable.
The cosmetic surgery seems to have proved more profitable compared to medication. The idea of using DHT-resistant hair follicles from the back of the head in the bald patches has helped the bald regrow their hair. By 2024, the hair transplant industry is expected to reach up to $24.8bn. Gho has recently come up with a partial longitudinal follicular unit extraction wherein only a few follicles are taken to reduce the scarring and also lower the removal of strips of skin. There are people who require more than one sitting to overcome their hair loss issue. Similarly, a Japanese research group led by Junji Fukuda from Yokohama National University had developed new hair follicles from stem cells in larger quantities and this known to help reduce the hair loss and tedious transplantation task as well.
