Nigella, Superfoods and Treating Female Hair loss

POSTED: 13 February 2012

Recently, the media have been reporting on the apparent thinning of Nigella Lawson’s hair. Whilst the stories covered some of the common causes of female hair loss, little was said about the advances in female hair loss treatment.

A common cause of female hair loss, and the speculative reason behind Nigella’s thinning hair is lack of nutrients. When women diet –as Nigella has successfully been doing, the restricted nutritional intake means that the hair is likely to suffer. This is because replenishing these cells is not considered to be as important as cells in other parts of the body. The solution for this type of female hair loss would then be to consume nutrient rich foods such as eggs and avocados.

There are however, other causes of female hair loss; gradual loss associated with ageing, temporary hair loss during pregnancy and female pattern baldness, a hereditary condition that can cause anxiety, low self esteem and depression.

Not all female hair loss can be remedied through eating ‘superfoods’ or taking supplements – it requires a different type of female hair loss treatment altogether. There are non-surgical options available such as topical treatments that encourage hair growth. Alternatively, hair transplants are an increasingly popular option.

Using Micro Follicular Grafting, women suffering from thinning hair are able to conceal their hair loss easily with surgery. The treatment has a high success rate, and many women who undergo the treatment are incredibly satisfied with the results.

While Ms Lawson may be able to restore her once lustrous locks to their former glory, other women may need a little more help, and we now have the advanced treatments available to help.
