Is Hair Weaving The Cure To Baldness?

Who doesn’t love thick, shiny and healthy hair on their head? We all do, right? Our hair is an important part of our personality, which is why we take great pains to maintain them.

 No wonder then that it breaks our heart when we experience hair loss. And any person’s greatest hair nightmare would be baldness. But what causes baldness?

Causes Of Baldness

Heredity:

Your genes are the biggest contributor to baldness. Both men and women can experience baldness due to heredity. It usually starts showing age. 

Men often experience a receding hairline and bald spots. Whereas women might experience it as hair thinning.

Hormonal Changes:

If you are suffering from thyroid hormone dysfunction, then there are high chances that it might be contributing to your baldness. 

Some women might experience excessive hair loss during pregnancy due to hormonal upheavals. However, postpartum hair loss is usually temporary.

Medical History:

In medical conditions such as Alopecia areata, you might experience patchy hair loss. Scalp infections such as ringworm can also cause baldness.

Medications/Supplements:

Medications taken for chemotherapy can result in baldness. Other types of medications like those taken for depression, high BP, gout, heart problems, etc., might also cause baldness.

Hair Styles And Treatments: Certain hairstyles that frequently require heating or pulling your hair tight can cause hair loss and thereby result in baldness. 

Excessive experimentation such as hair coloring, straightening, curling, and exposure to heat, dust and various pollutants can also damage the hair shaft and roots. These reasons might aggravate hair loss and can cause baldness too.

Stress And Lifestyle Changes:

Stress is a major contributor to all health issues. And one of its first victims is always hair. Growing age and any of the conditions mentioned above combined with stress can be a death knell for your luscious hair.

 The result – baldness. Also, sudden fad diets or drastic changes in sleep patterns might also aggravate hair loss and baldness.

Is There A Cure For Baldness?

Baldness can bring down a person’s self-confidence to a large extent. Hence, for ages, we’ve all fallen for tall claims made by certain advertisements or therapists of magically reversing baldness.

 However, the fact remains that, even now, scientists are working hard to find the perfect cure for baldness. While success might have been elusive so far, scientists, though, are hopeful.

So, should a person suffering from baldness give up on his/her dream of getting back a head full of healthy hair ever? Not really. There are some treatments and procedures that can help restore a balding person’s crowning glory. One such procedure is hair weaving.

 Most of us may be familiar with the term. However, we might not know what is the meaning of hair weaving. And what about the hair weaving cost? Will it burn a hole in the pocket or is it affordable? Let us discuss this further.

Hair Weaving Meaning

Hair weaving means new hair being added to the area that is affected by baldness. This is done by a procedure that involves weaving the additional hair into a person’s existing natural hair. 

The new hair could be synthetic or natural human hair too. Natural human hair is obtained through donors who donate their hair for this very purpose.

 Some stylists also obtain them from their clients who would have tried a new hair cut and would willingly give away their cut hair. These hair are then cleaned and processed to be sold to clinics that specialize in hair weaving or for making wigs.

Different Techniques Of Hair Weaving

There are different types of hair weaving techniques. Depending on the extent of baldness and the type of hair, the specific type of hair weaving procedure is employed. Here’s a list of the most popular hair weaving techniques:

Bonding:

Bonding is perhaps the most popular type of hair weaving technique. In this technique, the hair on the scalp is first separated into sections. Then, using some hair glue, the weaved hair is glued on the scalp, very close to the natural hair.

 To prevent any chances of damage to the natural hair, the weaved hair is generally removed after a few days. This is a temporary technique of hair weaving with the least amount of damage to the natural hair.

Tracking/Sewing:

In this technique, the natural hair is braided across the head into several tracks. These can be in the form of concentric circles or cornrows. The concentric circle braids are braided around the head, sewn together, and then the new hair or weaves are sewn horizontally across them.

 As for the cornrows, the natural hair is braided to form tracks. The weaves are then sewn on these tracks. This type of technique requires the deft hands of a trained professional. Thus, the extent or type of tracking required decides the hair weaving cost.

Fusion Technique:

If you need a really natural look, then you should go for the fusion technique. In this method, a machine is used to glue each strand of hair to the scalp which is so good that it becomes difficult to differentiate between the natural hair and the weaves.

 To achieve this, natural hair is first divided into many slender and small sections. Then the heated machine is used to attach new hair to each of the sectioned hair. As the heat can cause potential damage to the scalp, this procedure has to be done extremely carefully. 

It is also a very time-consuming process. Due to the precautions and care involved, the hair weaving cost of this method can be quite expensive. But it gives a natural look and the hair can be washed and styled like natural hair.

However, if you do not wish to try this method due to the fear of damage due to heat, then an alternative method called Cold Fusion, is also available. In this method, a heating mechanism is not required to glue the hair.

Net Weaving Technique:

This technique is a permanent procedure and is specifically a boon to those experiencing baldness or hair thinning. This process requires braiding of the natural hair which is then covered by a thin net. This net then serves as an ideal surface where hair extensions can be weaved. 

To weave the hair extensions, the natural hair is first parted in the middle and a basic cornrow braid is created. Then the hair weaves are added just at the start of the cornrow braid. Again, this process is very delicate and requires professional expertise in order to get great results.

The best part of this technique is that it does not cause any damage to the natural hair shaft or the scalp. Maintaining your newly woven hair is also easy compared to other methods. 

You will be able to wash your hair once a week too provided you dry the hair completely. The net weaving technique can last up to 2 to 3 months, making it worth all the hair weaving cost you would have borne.

So, Is Hair Weaving A Cure To Baldness?

Like mentioned earlier, there is no true cure for baldness. But yes, hair weaving does come close to it. Quite a few celebrities from Hollywood and Television have undergone hair weaving with excellent results. Some have also been able to reclaim their lost glory after their personalities underwent a drastic change following the hair weaving procedure.

 Earlier, not many would want to go for hair weaving due to a lack of awareness about the procedures involved. However, with the current spurt in trained hair weaving professionals and clinics, and the availability of information at the touch of a button, the present scenario seems to be different. 

Over the years, the new and improved techniques involved in hair weaving have given it a new meaning altogether. 

Earlier, hair weaving was considered a prerogative of only the rich and famous, but it has now become accessible to the common man too. With each successful case, it seems like hair weaving is slowly but surely finding huge patronage. And why not?

 Considering the amazing results that it gives, it deserves at least one shot. Not only can hair weaving be done to add volume to thin hair, but it can also help cover those embarrassing bald patches.

So, while scientists lose their hair (pun intended) over finding the perfect cure for baldness, hair weaving can be considered as the proverbial ‘silver lining’ for those suffering from baldness. We do hope that scientists achieve success someday. Until then, considering hair weaving is not a bad idea.

 Because, not only does it restore a person’s lost hair, but it can also redeem their lost self-confidence. And for a reward as precious as this, no amount of hair weaving cost will be a cause of concern. So, if you too are suffering from baldness and hair thinning, you might want to give hair weaving a shot. 

Make sure you find the right clinic for getting hair weaving done. To find one, check the credentials of the professionals involved, their success rate, and client reviews or testimonials. Make an informed choice before going ahead with your decision to get hair weaving done!

TEMPORARY HAIR STRAIGHTENING

Temporary hair straightening can be very easy and it comes in two different frames. One is the heat method and the other is the heatless method.

Heat methods for temporary hair straightening include hot iron straightening, blow-dry, and straightening comb. Whereas the heatless method includes using bobby pins and combing against the fan. 

Let us now look at the details of some of the hair treatments available which gives temporary hair straightening. Temporary here refers to a day or particularly only for an event. Your hair stays straight only if you don’t comb or touch it frequently. Some of the heat-based techniques are:

1. Hot Iron Straightening Method

There are a lot of hair ironing appliances available in the market to choose from. These hair ironing appliances work totally on electricity, generate heat and irons your hair section by section. It is always advisable to choose a hair straightener with a ceramic plate because it tends to give you a very soft smooth hair straightening and gives your hair a very shiny look.

 Also, this is very budget-friendly, you only have to invest in the straightener once and then you are good to go. Let us look at the procedure and steps to be followed while straightening your hair using a hot ironing appliance.

  • Clean your hair with shampoo and wash it with cold water to lock in the moisture present in your hair.
  • Dry your hair as quickly as possible and apply a hair serum to detangle it.
  • Com your hair thoroughly, so there are no tangles left in your hair, divide your hair into different sections and start ironing your hair.
  • Iron your hair slowly from the roots to the end. And voila!

Welcome your smooth and straight hair with immense shining power.

2. Blow Dry

It is preferred after the hot iron hair straightening method, It gives your hair a very silky and sleek look. The additional advantage of blow-drying is it gives a very voluminous effect to your hair by making it a lot more bouncier.  It must also be preferred because it doesn’t allow direct heat to touch your scalp. 

The result is achieved by using blow-dry and cold setting of hair together. This is a very easy step and it can be very helpful in getting the desired voluminous hair look for the event. It also stays for a shorter time as it is the temporary hair straightening method. 

Steps for blowdrying are as follows:

  • The first four steps are as same as the iron hair straightening method.
  • Use a roller brush or paddle brush to straighten your hair. Place the dryer 6 inches away from your hair, blow-dry and set your hair using the brush at a time.
  • Apply hair serum at the end of the method to get that ‘shine and sleek’ look.

Blow-dry seems to be a good option before iron hair straightening as the direct contact with heat can make your hair very dry and dull. As the scalp isn’t in direct contact with the heat from the blow dryer, the damage caused to the hair roots is from minimum to zero. The hair strands can be easily protected from the effects of heat by applying a few drops of heat protectant serum along the length of the hair strands.

3. Straightening Comb

This is something to do when you are getting late for an event and you need to straight your hair as soon as possible. It is as simple as switching on the straightening comb and combing your hair. Yes, you heard it right, there are specific hair straightening appliances that come in the form of a comb.

 Just adjust the heat and use it to comb your hair like you always do with your regular comb. And voila! Welcome your silky and shiny hair in a few minutes. For the best results, hold your hair at one end so that the curls and waves in your hair disappear and it makes it easy for you to comb it right. 

It is advisable to use a heat protectant before taking your hair into direct contact with heat as it helps in keeping your hair intact. Aloe vera can also be used in the replacement of heat protectant.

PERMANENT HAIR STRAIGHTENING

Let us now look at the permanent straightening techniques of hair. These treatments are completely chemical-based and can help you keep your hair straight and shiny for a very long span of time. It can do a lot of changes to your frizzy and curly mane.

 The popularity of permanent hair straightening techniques is increasing rapidly due to it’s increasing demand and varied options available in the market. But you must be aware of each and every technique to be able to decide what suits perfectly for your hair type and length.

 Generally, every technique revolves around the usage of chemicals on your hair, which may not have many side effects during early times. 

Let us look at the top 5 chemical-based permanent hair straightening techniques:

1. HAIR BOTOX

A celeb hairstylist from Los Angeles based salon piete mason said in his recent talk about the straightening techniques, Hair botox can fill in (porous) hair, reduce frizz by more than 50 percent, and cut styling time in half”.

“The treatment eliminates frizz but keeps the natural texture of the hair. It’s the gentlest of smoothing treatment options.”

Hair botox a be done by anyone with any hair type, color, and length. This treatment also helps in removing dandruff, psoriasis and other scalp conditions. 

A chemical-based product is applied to your hair and left for 45 minutes, then it is washed and rinsed off and further continued by using a flat iron. This is a formaldehyde-free process that does not break the hair bonds and still makes your hair very straight and shiny. It stays for about two to four months and cost about $150 to $350.

2. BRAZILLIAN BLOWOUT

A very famous and professional hairstylist Grand said, “A Brazilian blowout is a customizable smoothing treatment that actually improves the condition of the hair by creating a protective layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle, because it is amino-acid based, this treatment can be done every 3-6 months with no band of regrowth.”

Any hair type can get this treatment done even if it is already chemically treated. The procedure is the same for almost every chemical-based permanent hair straightening technique. The Brazilian blowout is applied to your hair, kept for at least 45 minutes, your hair is then rinsed, and straightened with a flat iron and in the end blow-dried for the perfect volume.

 What makes it different is, there’s no downtime after the procedure and it stays for up to 3 months and will cost around $250 to $300.

3. KERATIN HAIR TREATMENT

The very famous hairstylist Grand explains, “The main difference between a keratin treatment and Brazilian blowout is the intensity. Keratin treatment helps to take away most to all of the curl, volume, and frizz. It also needs to stay on the hair longer to achieve its results (72 hours!) compared to the Brazilian blowout, which gets rinsed the same day,” 

This treatment is for someone who has very frizzy and curly hair. And for the ones who want to make their hair manageable to a greater extent. Though it won’t completely straighten super curly hair but can make them manageable.

 If you love the natural wavy pattern of your hair then keratin treatment is not for you. The product is applied to the hair and left for at least 2 to 3 hours and then it is straightened with a flat iron to seal the product into your hair follicles. It lasts for about three to six months and costs around $250 to $450.

4. JAPANESE HAIR STRAIGHTENING

It is also known as thermal reconditioning. This treatment permanently breaks down the hair bonds and makes your hair super straight. Japanese hair straightening is for the ones who want to straighten their hair for a longer time and permanently. It is as same as the other chemically treated procedures. The special solution is applied to your hair, left for a while and rinsed.

 When dried, it is conditioned and straightened with a flat iron to conceal the solution into your hair follicles. You cannot wash this up to 72 hours after the treatment. It breaks the hair bond and makes it completely straight forever or at least till it overgrows. It lasts for a very long time and costs around $450 to $800.

5. CHEMICAL STRAIGHTENING ( RELAXERS )

This is similar to Japanese hair straightening methods, where it changes the structure of a hair type to straight hair and completely changes it. It makes curly and frizzy hair very straight permanently. This is for a kinky hair type who wants straight hair. Its process is the lengthiest of all, the hairstylist applies two to three coats of the relaxer formula by diving hair in different sections.

 It is then rinsed off and dried. Your hair is then shampooed and deep conditioned for better and absolute results. It is the strongest chemical treatment of all, which even helps in straightening the tightest curls. It stays until hair grows out and costs around $100 and plus.

This de-frizzing process, you can easily get rid of these dry, dull and frizzy hair. But first, let us know what exactly is keratin and how is the treatment done.

Keratin? What Exactly is this?

As we all know, hair is completely made up of protein and keratin is one of the major parts of proteins present in our hair. Our hair is built up of keratin-associated protein.

 It makes up to 90% of hair’s protein. Keratin has amino acids present which creates sulfur bridges to make hair stronger and healthier. Keratin acts as an external and internal structural protein to keep hair stronger and healthier.

 As soon as the keratin levels go down in your hair, it automatically turns your hair dry and frizzy. Due to many factors like pollution, dirt and unhealthy lifestyle the keratin in hair gets depleted which may cause adverse effects. And this is the right time when keratin treatment is required.

How does this Keratin Treatment Actually Work?

In simple terms, adding keratin to your hair artificially is what keratin treatment is all about. Keratin hair treatment is very popular among both men and women. 

These keratins contain amino acids that are responsible for straightening the hair and determining the type of hair such as straight, wavy or curly. It also helps in getting a fizz free, smooth and shiny look.

 When keratin is lost in your hair it creates porous spots and due to excessive porous hair, your hair becomes frizzy, dull and damaged. Keratin hair treatments actually fills up those porous stop and the problem of detangling, dull and damaged hair. 

The hairstylist initiates by applying a keratin-based solution to your hair and when keratin goes into your hair follicle, it is sealed in with flat iron. Imagine straight hair structure to be like a ladder. 

A straight and regular ladder, while curly hair structure is spiral, similar to a staircase. The keratin when applied artificially, breaks the bond of curly hair structure and joins them similar to straight hair structure, turning your curly hair into straight hair permanently. 

So, a keratin treatment can basically be defined as a treatment that helps in rebuilding the hair by providing it the protein that is lost.

Pre-Treatment Measures and Tips

Before you head out to get keratin treatment done for yourself, make sure it suits your hair type. There are different hair types present and if keratin treatment suits your best friend, it doesn’t mean it will also suit your hair type. Have a deep knowledge of keratin and its after-effects.

 It is said by some of the leading hair stylists that keratin hair treatment is highly suitable for wavy and curly hair with a frizzy texture. It is better to avoid straight and silky hair for getting keratin hair treatment.

Another important thing that has to be on your to-do list before getting keratin hair treatment done is to consult a hairstylist. This consultation may help you understand better about your hair and if this keratin hair treatment is suitable for your hair type or not. 

Make sure you study the treatment beforehand and have a piece of complete knowledge about it. Also, check the pricing for keratin treatment in various salons as it varies according to your hair type and hair length.

 It usually takes 1 to 2 hours to get keratin hair treatment done according to your hair length. Proper knowledge of keratin hair treatment is very important as half knowledge can be very dangerous for your hair and yourself as well.

How does Keratin Treatment procedure takes place?

Keratin hair treatment is the best treatment for your hair to eliminate frizz and dullness from your hair. But keratin hair treatment has a very long procedure and it takes a lot of time. For an approximate, it takes around three to four hours for keratin treatment to get completely done.

 Usually, this time depends on the hair type, porosity, hair length and thickness. It is always better to pick a day when you are completely free, as it takes a lot of time to get the pre-treatment tips, keratin hair treatment and post-treatment tips done.

 So you have to take a day off from your office, university or go during weekends to salon to get this keratin hair treatment done.Before initiating the treatment, the hairstylist clears all the dust, dirt and residue with a shampoo and cleanses off the scalp plus hair tresses.

Once your hair are free of dirt and dust, it is divided into sections and then blow-dried so that all the moisture from your hair is removed perfectly.Then the hairstylist divides your hair again into different section and applies the keratin solution evenly to all the sections and leave it to dry and absorb for about an hour.

Then comes another round of brow dry. This time the sections are blow-dried separately and left to set for some time more.

Finally, this solution is sealed into the cuticles with the help of a flat iron. And done. The keratin treatment is successfully done. This is how easy keratin hair treatment is. The final result of this treatment is very exciting. It results in smooth shiny and manageable hair. But this effect won’t last more than three months. There are no such side effects discovered in regard to keratin hair treatment. But it contains formaldehyde which is also used in different household products and is not considered safe, and due to which a little skin irritation may be caused. And hence, this treatment must be done by a trained professional hairstylist.
