It has certainly been a glorious summer, one of the best in years, and even those of us who haven’t managed to go abroad have been basking in the sunshine here in the UK. While all those sunny days, swimming parties and backyard barbecues have been wonderful for our morale, they have not been so kind to our hair. Most of us have hair that is dried out from heat, chlorine, salt and sea breezes and now is the time to give it some TLC.
If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably been glued to your TV screen recently, watching Team GB in the Olympics. With 19 gold medals already won – 50 overall – it’s fair to say that we’re performing amazingly!

Once you have acquired yours, you will notice an immediate improvement of your quality of life. However, you may also be wondering what sort of specific care you should give to your new locks. And you are right, because hair replacements demand their own specific treatments to stay as healthy and stunning as the first day they were applied.
Up to 50% of men will see some degree of hair loss by the time they turn fifty years old, while some begin experiencing it at an even earlier age. Hereditary hair loss occurs when dihydrotestosterone, a male hormone, causes follicles to shrink and create hair with a shorter lifespan. While there isn’t a cure for what is called male pattern baldness, there are many hair restoration treatments available that can certainly ensure a natural look.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is one of them. This hair restoration method is a minor surgical technique with a fast recovery process that can help you overcome hair loss – and gain back the confidence you lost. On top of this, and perhaps the best news people who undergo FUE can receive, this is a permanent procedure, so you don’t have to worry about reverting back!
Hair loss is something that affects a lot of people and when it does, it can cause discomfort and a decrease in confidence. There are a lot of things that can be done to overcome or even prevent hair loss, one of the main methods of doing this is through a hair transplant. However, if you are considering the procedure, there are some things you need to know first.
