5 Questions to Ask Your Hair Loss Specialist


Over the years at Wellaholic, an aesthetic chain in Singapore, I’ve interacted with numerous clients who have shared their concerns and hopes about hair regrowth. Coupled with my research and conversations with industry experts, these experiences have provided me with a unique perspective on what works, what doesn’t, and why.

In this article, I’ll explore the various factors that influence hair health and growth, from genetic predispositions to lifestyle choices.

We’ll look at the science behind hair loss and regrowth, debunk common myths, and discuss what current research says about effective treatments and strategies.

Whether you’re in your early twenties beginning to notice changes in your hairline, or in your thirties and beyond, grappling with more pronounced hair changes, this article aims to provide valuable insights.

According to a survey executed amongst women in Singapore in 2019, over 53% of respondents aged 35 to 44 years reported hair loss as their key hair concern

The “Bare” Reality: Waking Up to Hair Loss

There’s a brushful of truth to the old saying “Hair today, gone tomorrow”. You wake up one morning, look in the mirror and suddenly, there’s an emptiness that wasn’t there before. This unexpected hair-free zone in the reflection packs a bigger punch than a cup of black coffee. You, my friend, are experiencing hair loss.

Hope for Hair: Wellaholic to the Rescue

Fear not! We’re not letting your crowning glory go down without a fight. At Wellaholic, we’ve heard your hairy woes and we’re locked and loaded, ready to serve up the facts on hair regrowth.

The Burning Question: Is Hair Regrowth Really Possible?

Now, to address the burning question you’ve all been itching to ask – Is hair regrowth really possible? Stick around as we delve into the nitty-gritty of hair regrowth, shedding light on what you can do to reclaim your hairline.

During the telogen interval, hair follicles eventually wake up, initiating a new hair growth cycle repeatedly. This unique characteristic of the hair's life cycle is why hair removal methods, like shaving, plucking, waxing, sugaring, or using depilatory creams, don't provide permanent results.

Hair Today, Hair Tomorrow

A Tour Through Your Hair Cycle

First, let’s get to the root of the matter. Our hair goes through a merry-go-round of a cycle: anagen (the growth phase), catagen (the transitional phase), and telogen (the resting phase). Imagine this as the lifecycle of a hair strand, from its enthusiastic birth to its graceful retirement.

When Your Hair Cycle Hits a Roadblock

Sometimes, this cycle takes a detour, akin to a sudden flat tyre on your smooth road trip. Factors like genetics, age, health conditions, or even the everyday stress of living in the fast lane can cause your hair follicles to prematurely hang up their boots.

The Hair Rebirth: Hope Beyond Hair Loss

But before you bid adieu to your luscious locks, remember this: not all hair loss is permanent. And here’s where the plot twist kicks in. Regrowing hair is more than a wish upon a hair star. It’s a reality, a possibility, and we’re here to show you how.

a study in 2013 showed that LLLT help provided a 39 percent increase in hair growth over a period of 16 weeks for the 41 males ages 18 to 48 in the study

Wellaholic’s Hair Grow Series: A Follicle’s Best Friend

At Wellaholic, we’ve knitted science, technology and a good dose of dedication to hair care into our repertoire of treatments. Our Hair Grow series isn’t just a shot in the dark, it’s a targeted approach to wake those follicles up from their beauty sleep.

The Magic of Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT)

In the realm of hair regrowth, Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) operates as a bio-stimulating agent for your hair follicles. Leveraging specific wavelengths of light, LLLT targets the mitochondria of cells to enhance their adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production, the primary source of cellular energy.

By boosting ATP production, LLLT optimizes cellular function, akin to upgrading the cells to a higher efficiency level. As a result, the follicles’ capacity to produce hair is significantly bolstered. LLLT is like providing a consistent and scientific training regimen for your follicles, enhancing their fitness and priming them for robust hair production.

Scalp RF Microneedling: Using Two Technologies to Supercharge Hair Growth

In my time at Wellaholic, I’ve seen how our Scalp RF Microneedling Treatment helps with hair growth. It’s not just any treatment. It combines Radio Frequency (RF) energy with microneedling. This mix works well to fight hair loss.

First, the microneedling starts the process. It wakes up sleeping hair follicles. This gets them growing again. Then, the RF energy goes deep into the scalp. It warms the area. This helps bring more blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the hair follicles.

Using both methods together helps your hair follicles a lot. They get better at growing hair. Getting this treatment is more than just a service. It’s a step towards bringing back strong and healthy hair.

The tiny needles used in Scalp RF Microneedling create microchannels in your scalp. These channels kickstart the natural regeneration process of your hair follicles, encouraging them to grow stronger and healthier strands of hair.

Scalp Microneedling: A Tiny Prick for a Big Change

Microneedling involves creating tiny, superficial punctures in the skin, which kick-starts your body’s wound healing process. This not only causes a collagen boost (hello, glowing skin!), but also stimulates hair growth. It’s like a wake-up call for your hair follicles, triggering them to get back to work and produce new hair.

Minoxidil Scalp Booster treatment

In my role as Aesthetic Director, I have seen many hair regrowth methods. Yet, Wellaholic’s Minoxidil Scalp Booster stands out. We use a unique spray technology. It helps your scalp absorb minoxidil better. This method feels like a gentle touch, not a needle. It gets the minoxidil right to your hair roots.

This new way helps your hair grow back faster and healthier. We see clients with fuller, stronger hair. Our Minoxidil Scalp Booster is a step forward in hair regrowth science. It makes the journey quicker and more effective.

Good news! Minoxidil is not limited to a specific gender. Both men and women can use it to boost hair growth and address thinning hair concerns.

The Scientific Validation: Does Hair Regrowth Actually Work?

Hair regrowth is a topic I often discuss with my clients. It is complex and varies with each person. This is due to genetics, hormones, and health. Treatments like minoxidil and finasteride help. Minoxidil increases blood flow to hair follicles. This promotes growth. Finasteride targets male baldness. It reduces DHT, a hormone linked to hair loss.

But, these treatments do not work for everyone. Their success depends on the person’s unique body and hair loss cause. In my experience, results vary. Some see great hair regrowth, others see less. It’s important to have realistic expectations and a tailored approach.

Benefits of Minoxidil for Hair Loss and Evidence Supporting This

See the table below for the features of Minoxidil and evidence supporting this:

Increases hair growthMinoxidil has been shown to stimulate hair growth and prolong the anagen phase of the hair growth cycle.A randomized controlled trial found that minoxidil was effective in increasing hair growth in men with androgenetic alopecia.
Improves hair thicknessMinoxidil can increase the diameter of hair fibers and improve the overall thickness of hair.A study of women with female pattern hair loss found that minoxidil was effective in increasing hair thickness and density.
Prevents further hair lossMinoxidil can help prevent further hair loss by blocking the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone that contributes to hair loss.A systematic review found that minoxidil was effective in reducing hair loss and increasing hair growth in men and women with androgenetic alopecia.

Before your consultation, take some time to document your hair loss history. This can include details such as when you first noticed hair loss, any changes in your hair care routine, and any medications or supplements you're taking

Case Study: John’s Journey to Hair Regrowth with Wellaholic

John Tan, a 35-year-old Singaporean man, had been battling hair loss since his late twenties. His receding hairline was a source of constant stress, impacting his self-esteem and confidence. Despite trying various over-the-counter remedies, nothing seemed to help. He even contemplated surgical methods but was hesitant due to the potential risks and costs involved.

One day, John stumbled upon an article on Wellaholic’s website, “Is Hair Regrowth Really Possible?” This article filled him with hope, leading him to make an appointment for a consultation at Wellaholic’s Orchard outlet.

At Wellaholic, he was greeted by a friendly and knowledgeable team of experts who took the time to understand his concerns and explain the hair regrowth techniques they offer. They reassured him of their no hard-selling policy, which made John feel comfortable and under no pressure to commit immediately.

John decided to try the hair regrowth treatment, hopeful yet sceptical. The experts at Wellaholic charted out a customized treatment plan for him, focusing on a combination of their innovative hair regrowth techniques and WellaGrow serums.

As the weeks passed, John noticed subtle changes. His hair fall reduced significantly, and he could see new hair sprouting in previously bald areas. The Wellaholic team was there with him every step of the way, offering support, adjusting his treatment plan as needed, and celebrating every little victory with him.

Eight months later, John’s hair was denser and healthier. The transformation was incredible – not just in terms of his physical appearance, but also his self-confidence. He no longer shied away from mirrors or photos. He even started receiving compliments from friends and colleagues, who were amazed by his hair transformation.

John’s success story is a testament to Wellaholic’s commitment to delivering quality, effective treatments. His journey not only reinforces the effectiveness of Wellaholic’s hair regrowth techniques but also the company’s dedication to helping their clients look and feel their best.

While individual results may vary, Wellaholic aims to offer each client a personalized experience and provide the most suitable solution for their concerns. John’s story is just one of the many success stories, and you could be next!

Hair regrowth is indeed a possibility, but it's important to set realistic expectations. The effectiveness of regrowth largely depends on the underlying cause of hair loss.

A Hair Raising End

My conclusion, based on both empirical evidence and scientific research, is cautiously optimistic.

Hair regrowth is indeed a possibility, but it’s important to set realistic expectations. The effectiveness of regrowth largely depends on the underlying cause of hair loss. For instance, hair loss due to temporary factors like stress, nutritional deficiencies, or hormonal changes often responds well to targeted treatments and lifestyle adjustments.

However, in cases of genetic factors, like male or female pattern baldness, complete regrowth may be more challenging. In such scenarios, treatments can often slow down hair loss or partially regrow hair, but they rarely restore hair density completely. The key lies in early intervention and a tailored approach, considering individual factors such as the cause of hair loss, age, and overall health. This perspective aligns with the broader understanding within the aesthetics field, emphasizing personalized care and realistic goal setting.
