Nothing that is not formed or created under healthy conditions has a chance to continue its existence. We can accept this as a valid norm in any subject that we can think of, abstract or concrete. For a stable and balanced growth, solid foundations and favorable conditions are always needed. This rule works within the same system and logic from a business project to growing a plant. Therefore, the principle of “The foundation must be solid” also applies to our hair. The secret of hair types that we describe as healthy, shiny and voluminous is hidden under favorable growing conditions, namely, a healthy scalp.
It is known that there are an average of 100,000 to 150,000 hair follicles in the scalp covering the skull. Hair is made up of parts that are embedded in the skin and remain on the skin surface. There is a close and inseparable relationship between hair and skin. Skin and hair are considered part of an interconnected system. The biggest advantage of the FAT hair transplantation method is that it is an application that has the feature of making the scalp suitable for healthy hair formation. When the balding scalp is examined, it is possible to clearly observe that there are thinnings in the bald skin due to the lack of adipose tissue. By applying the injections of adipose tissue enriched with stem cells to the area to be transplanted, it is ensured that the scalp regains its health. All studies show that scalp health plays an important role in hair quality. FAT hair transplantation, which stands for Follicular Unit Autologous Transplantation, has also been a practice that has been developed as a result of these scientific researches, that we have applied safely and that we have achieved successful results, and that strengthens its place.
Scalp health is extremely important both to prevent hair loss and for hair transplant applications. Some studies have been conducted on whether skin diseases involving the scalp cause hair loss, and as a result of these studies, it has been determined that some skin diseases may cause temporary hair loss and impair hair quality, although not permanent. Scalp diseases that are stated to have harmful effects on hair health in the sources are listed as follows:
Psoriasis is one of the most researched scalp diseases regarding its effects on the hair. Experimental studies have shown that the hairs formed on the scalp affected by psoriasis are smaller in diameter and thinner and have more surface pits. In addition, it was also investigated whether there was hair loss in the lesioned areas. In experimental studies, samples from normal scalp and samples from psoriasis were examined comparatively. The problem of premature hair loss due to the lesions was also confirmed after the observational study. As a result of clinical studies, the view of increasing telogen and decreasing anagen has been reached.
We can say that small, white, itchy scales on the scalp are a common cosmetic and physiological problem for many people. In a comparative observational study between people with seborrheic dermatitis and normal groups, it was determined that dandruff problem reduces the vitality and shine of the hair. Although not as much as psoriasis, it was observed that the hair strands with seborrheic dermatitis examined had rougher and thicker cuticle edges. In addition, it is thought to be associated with early stage hair loss.
As it is known, eczema is a skin disease that has visual and physical irritating effects such as itching, raised spots, skin thickening. It has been noted that this disease, which impairs the quality of the scalp, has similar effects to psoriasis.
Tinea Capitis is an infection of the scalp. It can be seen at any age, including childhood. Microscopic and culture methods are used in the diagnosis. Studies on its harmful effects on hair health are one of the subjects. Tine capitis is a scalp disease that causes hair to look dull and lifeless. It has been observed that it causes spillage and breakage.
It should be known that these skin diseases that occur on the scalp do not cause permanent hair loss, hair loss may occur with symptoms such as itching and crusting, and new hair will grow in place of the shed hair as the disease wears off and the scalp recovers.
