Implants

Hair implants have been around for decades. When they were first introduced in the late 1950s, they looked obvious and rudimentary by today’s standards. In the last few years the procedure has become more intricate and it is hard to tell that the hair was not grown naturally. Individual hair follicles are embedded in the scalp and will continue to grow hair where they have been implanted.

Supplements

It is important to do research before you buy any of these to make sure they are safe for you and don’t compromise any medication that you may be taking. Supplements are thought to provide the follicle with essential nutrients that are needed to produce hair.

Natural Oil Massage
