Young woman caring for her long healthy hairThere are so many innovations that can completely transform the way you look, but let’s just concentrate on the hair for once. The problem with aging isn’t just restricted to the skin. Yes, fine lines, wrinkles and age spots might be our biggest concerns; but aging also leads to thinning hair issues. From the best foams to the latest laser treatments for your hair, Lionesse rounds up some of the best solutions to longer, healthier and thicker hair.

 

Minoxidil for your hair

They always say that prevention is the best cure. It couldn’t be more true for your hair as well. It is always easier to maintain your existing hair than growing it all over again. Therefore, getting into hair treatments as early as possible can help you save yourself from a world of misery later on. Most hair care brands have begun to understand the importance of minoxidil as an ingredient in hair care products. Minoxidil works by sparking hair regrowth within 6 months and making your hair follicles wider. In the mean time, you can use a thickening agent that has actually been inspired by the automotive industry. This agent is known as Filloxane and it features a similar technology to the one used to fix cracked windshields.

PRP treatments

Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) treatments refer to a type of treatment in which your blood is processed using a centrifuge so as to concentrate the plasma and then injected into your scalp. PRP treatments are getting a major boost using human placental tissues as well. The entire session takes about 60 minutes and it injects a cocktail of your own stem cell rich plasma and placenta into your scalp. This process is then followed by microneedling. According to reports, 90% of the patients experiencing an early-stage hair loss can enjoy an increase of almost 20% in terms of the coverage and volume of their hair. The best part is unlike traditional PRP treatments which require fixing every 3 – 6 months, the placenta enhanced PRP treatments can last for as long as two years.

 

Low-level laser lights

Low-Level Laser Lights can be used to increase the cellular energy produced in the mitochondria. This  enhances hair growth and it is virtually identical to those $100,000 machine treatments. Reports suggest that  30 minute session every alternate day can lead to a 15 – 30% improvement in terms of the hair mass of your weaker zones within a period of 90 days.

And in the mean time…..

 

Get the Right Cut

Did you know that the right kind of haircut can take off years from your looks? Work with your hair stylist to figure out something that looks perfect for your face and offers you with the right proportions. For example, the Rolling Stones have managed to maintain their looks primarily because of their hair. Yes, their skin has aged over the years, but  the longer hair makes them look younger. The moment they cut their hair, they would look older. The idea is to choose a look that works for you. A word of caution – If the right look can make you look younger, the wrong look can make you look older as well.
