"In most situations hair can regrow," says Trichologist Elizabeth Phillips at Philip Kingsley Trichological Clinic, New York. "Some of the follicles may be traumatized or damaged but typically there is still the possibility of growth. Pay particular attention to diet and make sure protein is included at breakfast and lunch. Eat three balanced meals a day with plenty of water, a good all purpose multi vitamin and extra iron or vitamin B12 if blood levels indicate anemia. External factors should also be attended to. Keep unnecessary styling to a minimum and watch the heat of the dryer. Turn down the heat, if it is too hot for the back of your hand, it is probably too hot for your hair and scalp. Treat the scalp and hair with a weekly scalp mask and an elasticizing hair treatment. Increasing circulation and stimulation via massage can also be a useful tool as you try to ensure the fastest healthiest regrowth. Each individual has a pre programmed rate of growth. However, many of us are not achieving that rate.By implementing some of the above listed advice a more favorable stage can be set to get hair back to its best as soon as possible. We also advocate stress management techniques and encourage our clients to take time to go to that yoga class, meditate or hit the gym."
