How social media is normalising hair replacement treatments for men
Posted on 12th January 2023 at 06:46
Hair replacement treatments for men are a fairly modern phenomenon and have only been around since the 20th century.
In the early days, men who went bald simply had to accept it or try to use something called a toupee, which rarely looked anywhere near authentic.
Today, hair replacement solutions for men are incredibly effective and are almost impossible to spot with the naked eye.
Our hair replacement systems follows every nuance of your head contours, becoming an integral part of your own scalp without surgery, pain or any medical procedure for a very reasonable price.
With the help of social media, hair replacement treatments for men are becoming more mainstream.
The history of hair loss replacements for men
For most of human history, hiding hair loss was the only option. Hats have long been a popular accessory, providing warmth and concealing a thinning hairline.
Wigs have also been used; the ancient Egyptians wore them frequently as sun protection.
Many people shaved their heads and used wigs to prevent lice until the Victorian era.
With the development of modern synthetic materials in the 20th century, wigs took off.
Influencers normalising surgical hair replacement treatments for men
In October 2019, YouTuber and Viner Zane Hijazi decided to have a hair transplant, and he recorded the event for his 1.5m YouTube subscribers.
A year later, he posted a TikTok video with his hair fully grown.
Just 13 seconds long, it received over 14.2 million views, 2.4 million likes, and 10,000+ comments.
Today, complete hair replacement treatments are available, and public figures such as Elon Musk, John Travolta and Wayne Rooney proudly done their new hairlines.
Types of surgical hair replacement treatments for men
First up is the popular FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method.
It involves a pen-like tool that meticulously extracts hair follicles from the skin and implants each follicle into bald or thinning spots. The grafts are so tiny that the results are very natural looking with minimal scarring.
Another similar method is called FUT (Follicular Unit Transportation), which involves removing a strip of skin from the back of the head, extracting individual follicles and then applying them to bald spots.
This is the method that Zane Hijazi opted for. It tends to leave more scarring compared to FUE.
