Major Breakthroughs in Hair Loss Research

  2. 2.  Human as we are, we always strive for excellence in every endeavor that we take. We are constantly in search for something new, anything that can make our lives comfortable and better. From new gizmo to possible cure for maladies, from a newly discovered zodiac sign down to astronomical specs, we have passion and hunger for new knowledge. These qualities separate us from other animals.
  3. 3.  According to, research can be defined as the search for knowledge, or as any systematic investigation, with an open mind, to establish novel facts, usually using a scientific method. The primary purpose for applied research is discovering, interpreting, and the development of methods and systems for the advancement of human knowledge on a wide variety of scientific matters of our world and the universe. Constant research gave us the knowledge and the will to excel especially in the medical field. A new procedure can work wonders to cure ailments. A new gadget can help hasten the work load for doctors and medical staffs. With regards to our hair, a new hair loss research can be very beneficial to individuals who suffer from hair loss condition. For years, hair doctors are looking for ways to combat the hair loss problems. They spent millions of dollars for hair loss research such as laboratory equipments and new technology to further advance the research development.
  4. 4.  The constant research made way to find the genes that contributed to or caused the hair loss problem. Hair loss research indicates that susceptibility to premature male pattern baldness is largely X- chromosome linked. Another research in 2007 suggests another gene on the X chromosome that lies close to the androgen receptor gene. They found the region Xq11-q12 on the X-chromosome to be strongly associated with hair loss in males. By doing research, they have also found certain vitamins and minerals to help prevent hair loss. Like the following: Vitamin B complex is essential for healthy hair Vitamin C boosts overall health and deficiency is associated with hair loss Biotin is needed for the production of fatty acids which are vital for healthy hair Copper is needed for hair color Iodine is needed to manufacture thyroid hormones, which affect hair condition Iron prevents short-term hair loss Selenium reduces scalp flaking Zinc is needed for hair growth

Laser combs makes use of the Low Laser Light Therapy to help hair growth. This light energy produces a therapeutic result through a completely natural photo biochemical reaction. Laser and LED (light emitting diodes) are commonly used light sources so you can enter into one of these procedures with complete confidence. The low level lasers that are used in these procedures serve to energize the tissues that make up your scalp’s surface. By providing this highly controlled form of energy for your scalp, your scalp’s cells use the energy to restart normal chemical processes that were for one reason or another not working before. Now, you know a great deal about the hair loss research and its usefulness. You can now keep an eye out for new information!
