It is very common and perfectly normal to see hair in the shower drain or on your hairbrush if you are a woman. In fact, the average female sheds 50-100 strands per day, according to Smart Beauty Guide. The shedding of hair is part of a healthy hair growth cycle. There are three main stages of hair growth, called the anagen, catagen and telogen phases. Each strand of hair can be in its own stage.

When it comes to modern hair restoration methods, NeoGraft® tops the list. NeoGraft is the first FDA approved hair implantation system to use follicular unit harvesting (FUE).

Hair loss can be a major hurdle for men, especially when it comes to their relationships and their career advancement. Male pattern baldness is medically known as androgenic alopecia.

Men experience the thinning and eventual baldness around the crown of the scalp first. … Continue reading
