  1. She describes motherhood as 'amazing', but Selma Blair has candidly revealed she is experiencing an unwanted side affect. The Cruel Intentions actress, 39, who gave birth to son Arthur Saint four months ago, has revealed she is suffering post-partum hair loss. Selma Blair has opened up about a common new mom symptom that not many people are talking about -– hair loss after pregnancy. “It just started falling out at the three-month mark. I’m not a girl who likes extensions, so Selma’s going to be bald!” joked 39-year-old Blair, who gave birth to son Arthur Saint four months ago. “This is so not glamorous, but it’s true: I need to take longer showers so that I can collect the hair that falls out and throw it away so I don’t clog the drain. Why do actresses never talk about that?” she said. What causes hair loss after pregnancy? Blair is not alone in experiencing postpartum hair loss. In fact, the American Pregnancy Association says that between 40 percent and 50 percent of women will experience hair loss after pregnancy. Most women will find they start losing hair three to four months after baby is born, as Blair experienced. Why does this happen? Our hair has a normal growing phase in which some of your hair is in a growing phase and another portion is in a resting or shedding phase. Every two to three months, the resting hair should fall out. However, pregnancy hormones can stop your hair from going through its normal shedding phase. This is why many women find their hair is thicker and has more volume during pregnancy. After baby is born, your hormone levels return to normal and the hair falls out at its normal rate. The hair that should have shed during pregnancy may also fall out at this time, which results in hair thinning or bald spots. The good news is that this hair loss is temporary and it most women find their hair returns to normal within six to twelve months. Complete hair loss article
  2. Xeno Laboratory, Ukrainian producer of skin care and hair loss cosmetics, appointed its official partner in the United States: Brain Plaza International, a New York based company will import and distribute Xeno Laboratory products in the US. It is peptide-based cosmetic product, working on long-time neglected hair loss for both men and women. Its combination of proprietary and proven ingredients effects synergetically on a cell level in 5 different directions: 1. blocking 5-a-reductase and reducing DHT level; 2. expanding blood vessels that improves nourishment of scalp cells; 3. regulating potassium channels and stimulating release of nitric oxide by scalp cells; 4. waking up follicles from hibernation; 5. accelerating metabolism of scalp skin cells. Xeno Laboratory Serum's impact is close to combined effect from both Minoxidil (Rogaine) and Finasterid (Propecia). Additionally, peptide-based complex, obtained from vegetable extracts and derivatives of cells, allows your scalp skin to absorb all elements faster and more effectively. Generally, Xeno Laboratory Serum compensates almost all known causes of hair loss and hair thinning. Full hair loss article
  3. 121doc reports that several news sources suspect I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! presenter Joe Swash used hair restoration surgery behind closed doors. Swash has so far refused to qualify or deny if the hair loss allegations are true. Swash claimed the title of King of the Jungle by winning the 2008 edition of I’m a Celeb and although he wore a hat for the best part of the show, the young soap actor was helpless in covering up his balding crown in front of the TV cameras. But in 2011, Swash sparked controversy when returned to co-host the show, sporting a healthy head of hair. The story was first brought to light on a london Clinic website, which reported that Swash paid £3,000 for an operation to stimulate the regrowth of hair, a procedure that has helped a growing number of men, including footballer Wayne Rooney. This story came just one month after the Daily Mail published an article on Swash discussing the extent of his hair loss condition on the ITV show. It turns out that Swash is not the only I’m a Celeb star accused of having hair transplant surgery as back in 2011 rumours spread that presenter Declan Donnelly also went under the knife to put an end to male hair loss. The News Of The World reported that the 34-year-old’s hair appeared “thick and bushy”, despite having apparently thinned in recent years. It is thought that Donnelly took action before the symptoms of male hair loss became too visible, which is practical advice patients receive during a private consultation. There is little evidence that suggest if Donnelly chose surgery or medication to achieve hair regrowth. Complete hair loss article
  4. Advanced Hair has given Shane Warne another makeover - this time blacking out his clothing. The hair-loss clinic pulled its latest TV ad featuring the spin king after the logo on Scrawnie's T-shirt - "No Hair, No Life" - sparked the ire of cancer patients. The Anti-Cancer Council and former cancer patients complained about the ad. Complainant and former sufferer Kate Alexander said: "I couldn't bear the idea of someone just being told they were going to lose their hair and then being told that without hair they had no life." Advanced Hair Studio CEO Stephen Jeffery yesterday confirmed the clinic had its agency remaster the clip, digitally blacking out the offending slogan. The new ad went to air on Wednesday night. Jeffery said the ad was in no way meant to offend those managing hair because of medical conditions, but said the clinic's slogan, "No Hair, No Life", would not be canned. "Advanced Hair Studio, and in particular Shane Warne, understand that for millions of people around the world suffering from hair loss no hair does mean no life," he said. Full hair loss article
  5. The drug, which in its earliest, unsexiest incarnation existed solely as a glaucoma treatment, is best known as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved wonder drug that can grow and darken your poor listless lashes . Now, it's being tested for a new use: growing hair on your dome. No one tracks just how many doctors across the country are using Latisse off-label to target hair loss, but Dr. Alan Bauman, a Boca Raton, Fla., board-certified hair restoration physician has been using the drug this way for about three years, beginning around the time the FDA approved it for eyelash growth in December 2008. He describes his own personal "eureka!" moment: "Patients who were using it for eyelashes sometimes have eyebrow problems, so it’s a short hop to the eyebrows," he explains. "So, of course, if it was working there, too — from the eyebrows, it’s just a short hop to the hairline." Allergen, the health care company that manufactures the eyelash enhancer, is currently testing the safety and efficacy of a new formulation of bimatoprost, the active pharmaceutical ingredient in Latisse, in growing hair on the scalp, says Heather Katt, a spokeswoman for Allergen. The appeal of using Latisse for hair loss is its ease and convenience, as it seems to only require one drop to the affected area once a day; minoxidil (better known as Rogaine) requires two, and Propecia requires daily pill taking. Bauman says he sees about 1,000 new hair loss patients each year, about 700 of which end up on some kind of medical management — and so far, he's only used Latisse on a "couple dozen" patients, usually those who are allergic to the usual treatments, which is what happened to 70-year-old Rhoda Kelly. Kelly's hair was thinning a bit on the back of her head, so she tried Rogaine, but suffered a bad allergic reaction. So Bauman suggested she try Latisse. On the left is a photo of Rhoda Kelly's hair before using Latisse, which had started to thin a bit. On the right, Kelly's hair is thicker after using Latisse daily. Kelly started to see noticeable results about four months after starting Latisse, as her thin hair started to grow in thicker. Now, 14 months later, Kelly says, "My hair is in much better condition — it looks healthy." She's still using Latisse, combined with "a slew of other vitamins," including a pharmaceutical-grade biotin and a marine-derived protein-polysaccaride, and a protective sun hat. Kelly, by the way, has strawberry blonde hair, which has gotten lighter after years in the Florida sun. It hasn't darkened after using Latisse. When Latisse first hit the market, much ado was made about one of the more surprising risks: In rare cases, it could cause light eyes to turn brown. Bauman says he hasn't seen any evidence that this applies to hair, or the skin on the scalp, for that matter. Full hair loss article
  6. A New York City celebrity hairstylist and wig designer said his dream – to provide wigs for children with medical hair loss – is coming true. Andrew DiSimone, who has been an American Cancer Society volunteer for the last three years, launched the nonprofit FreeWigsForKids.org six months ago. The ACS has had a free wig program for women, but DiSimone is determined to help boost the self-esteem of children. DiSimone, owner of FaceSalon in Manhattan, says children who experience hair loss “don’t fully understand what’s going on." Many children see a wig as another accessory, which helps them look and feel good, he says. DiSimone adds that, as children get older, they become more conscious of their appearance, and are singled out as being different from other kids. ”The hair enables them to fit in without standing out and help them feel as normal as they can during treatment,“ says DiSimone. Sophia, a 12-year-old with alopecia, used to wear a bandanna and stay at home because of her condition. After receiving three wigs from DiSimone, Sophia now is trying out for the school play. “She’s back out there and living a normal 12-year-old’s life,” he says. Since 2008, DiSimone has designed 150 wigs for people with medical hair loss. Each wig is made of “individually hand-tied hair” in a factory in China, and costs between $200 and $1,000, depending on the type of hair used. This week, DiSimone gave four local girls wigs at a pampering session at the ACS Hope Lodge in Manhattan -- sponsored by Disney On Ice. Full hair loss article
  7. Aderans Research reached a major milestone in its hair restoration studies recently when the company enrolled its 300th subject in Phase 2 of its clinical trial. With a goal of at least 350 subjects, Aderans is well on its way to expanding industry knowledge about cell-based engineering solutions for pattern hair loss. “We will continue to evaluate various combinations of the Ji Gami™ cell family in clinical treatment regimens,” said Chief Executive Officer Ken Washenik, M.D., Ph.D. “The results are very encouraging thus far, and we’re on course to finish Phase 2 next year,” added Vern Liebmann, Chief Operating Officer. Launched in November 2008, Phase 2 is being conducted across the United States and is open to select individuals who suffer from androgenetic alopecia. Aderans continues to recruit subjects; visit http://www.aderansre...nicupdates.html for current locations. In another landmark, Aderans recently patented (U.S. # 7,985,537) and trademarked its proprietary laboratory test, Aderans HPA™, developed to discern and assess cell formulations in terms of their hair-forming ability. “This unique test can effectively detect cells that produce hair follicles,” said Kurt Stenn, MD, Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer. “It is a standard in the industry.” Full hair loss article
  8. The Hair Loss Control Clinic in Latham has been helping people to regrow hair since its inception 25 years ago. Now they are looking to give back to community that has made them a success by hosting a "Tell Us Your Alopecia Story" contest. The winners will be awarded six months of treatment free of charge. Hair Loss Control Clinic President and owner William Blatter says that he is excited to offer this opportunity to people in the community. "We have been very fortunate and wanted to find a way to give back. I understand how devastating it can be, particularly living with Alopecia Areata," he said. "We wanted to put a contest together where we could help people be able to get treatment without having to pay for it. We also wanted people to also be able tell their story because hair loss is such a difficult thing." Blatter says that he and his staff will choose two winners to receive valuable treatment. "We are going to select two people and they will get a prize valued between $1,500 and $2,000. They will get a six-month treatment program that will include laser treatments and all of the products and check-ups that they need," he said. "The deadline is September 30 and it is free to enter. They can go to our website to enter or they can mail the form or drop it off here. We encourage readers to let other people know too. They can also enter their friends or family member themselves, if they have alopecia." For those concerned about others finding out that they are seeking hair loss treatment, Blatter says not to worry. "Everything is kept confidential," he said. "If they want to let their story be known that is fine. We are not giving out name or information on anything unless it's something that they personally want to share. It is totally up to them." Blatter says that hair loss is a huge issue. "A third of all people have noticeable hair loss worldwide, it is very widespread," he said. "It can be devastating, particularly for women. 50 percent of women by middle age have thinning hair and it's more and more common to see hair loss in women in their twenties and thirties." Thousands of Capital District residents have visited Blatter's Hair Loss Control Clinic and many more have utilized his products worldwide. "In the Latham office, we have probably worked with upwards of 5,000 to 10,000 people," Blatter said. "Our products have been used to treat several hundred thousand people worldwide between ourselves and affiliated clinics." Full hair loss article
  9. An East Yorkshire hospital has received a donation of equipment designed to reduce hair loss in patients undergoing cancer treatment. The technique involves fitting the patient with a rubber cap that is pumped with a cooling fluid. The cold temperature restricts the amount of blood reaching the hair follicles, protecting them from the effects of chemotherapy drugs. A breast cancer charity has donated six of the units to Castle Hill Hospital. Scalp cooling has been used for some years, and traditionally involves using frozen gel packs. The machine was developed by family firm Paxman Coolers Ltd, based in Huddersfield. The first unit was produced in 1997. Claire Paxman, from the firm, said the inspiration to invent the device came after her mother's experience of undergoing chemotherapy. "She was actually given a method of scalp cooling but it didn't work," she said. "I personally, at 14 years old, had to cut off all her hair in the bathroom." The success of scalp cooling can vary from patient to patient. Complete hair loss article
  10. Dr. Robert Leonard, chief surgeon and founder of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates, is questioning the results of a new study which found stress can cause hair loss in women. Leonard says the study, which is of only about 200 people, is better described as an observational study rather than a true medical, double-blinded study, and while it is interesting, it is not at all conclusive. According to the study, extreme stress created by divorce or death of a spouse increased the likelihood that a woman will suffer from hair loss. The study also states that excessive sleeping patterns, having multiple children, smoking and the stresses of getting married also contribute to hair loss. The study goes on to say it found women who protected their head from excessive sunlight by wearing a hat faced a lower overall risk of hair loss. “In the vast majority of cases, genetics and not stress is responsible for long-term, progressive hair loss,” said Dr. Robert Leonard, New England’s foremost authority on hair restoration. “The myth that stress can cause hair loss has existed for a long time, and while it is often perpetuated by medically-trained doctors, it remains simply untrue.” Leonard continues, “Certainly, as pointed out in the study, reactive hair loss (or telogen effluvium) is self limiting and can be caused by stressors to the body such as pregnancy, exposure to general anesthesia, and major trauma. By and large, this is not the progressive hair loss that is observed in the vast majority of men and women suffering from hair thinning and baldness.” Dr. Leonard, who has been in practice for more than 25 years, says a person will not realize they are suffering from clinical hair loss until 50 percent of their hair has already fallen out. Because some physical traumas, such as child birth, can cause hair to shed, people will associate the trauma with causing their thinning hair, when the reality is that their hair started thinning years before. “50 million men and 30 million women suffer from clinical hair loss,” Dr. Leonard continued. “That’s a large segment of the general population, and it’s no surprise that some of those people may have had a divorce, smoke, or spend time in the sun. Still, it’s not the major cause of their hair loss.” Full hair loss article
  11. Spotted a few extra hairs on your hairbrush or when you're washing your locks? Before you start worrying that you're going bald, consider the effect the time of year has on your barnet. In a study published in the journal Dermatology, the scientists followed more than 800 healthy women over six years and found that they lost the most hair in the autumn months. They tracked 800 women over six months and found autumn was the prime time for hair loss. The Swedish researchers found that women had the highest proportion of resting hairs in July — with the telogen state in most of them ending around 100 days later, from October onwards. The life cycle of a human hair is between two and six years, with 90% of hair in the growth stage while the remaining 10% is in the resting stage before it falls out. Complete article
