One such treatment that has caught the fancy of common people is silicone hair treatment. TV, print and digital adverts promote the miraculous efficacy of this treatment. Celebrities often vouch for their effectiveness. Given such publicity of the silicone treatment, it is important that we make ourselves acquainted with the pros and cons of silicone hair treatment.

What is silicone hair treatment?

What is silicone hair treatment

Silicon hair treatment is a non-surgical treatment for treating baldness. As in the hair bonding or hair weaving method, the silicon-based treatment also involves the setting up of patches of hair using very minute clips. Silicon is poured on the base of the patch making it look nearest to the scalp. With this silicon-based patch, a person who is undergoing silicon treatment will find it surprisingly not that difficult that people would be able to differentiate between the new and the original hair due to the lower rates of customised results.

Apart from hair bonding, silicone treatment is also available in the form of deep conditioning treatment, which is designed for use every few weeks to impart glow and shine to the hair. It deposits specially formulated silicon onto the hair, which has two functions. Firstly, the deposited silicon lends a shine to the hair as it has high refractive properties. Secondly, silicon has a long-lasting defensive covering that can also act as a lubricant or sealant, thereby preventing loss of moisture from the hair shafts.

We have already looked at the advantages of silicone treatment. It does afford a glow that is not achievable through normal hair products or even normal surgical and non-surgical treatments. However, there are several negatives that make this treatment quite dangerous for people.

Silicone is plastic. It is not a natural ingredient. As such, we should be careful about putting any synthetic ingredients into our hair. This may lead to numerous health hazards in the future.

Silicone does not allow hair to breathe. It acts as a barrier to the entry of nutrients and water to the hair roots, thereby making it dull and lifeless over a period of time.

Although silicone gives us a good shine for a couple of days, over time it will attract more plastic/silicone build-up on the hair. With time it will dry the hair out because it will not allow in the conditioner and it ends up sitting on the surface. Due to the lack of moisture, the hair will become very brittle and could lead to frizz and breakage.

What are the other alternatives to silicone?

When it comes to adding natural shine and bounce to existing hair and restoring hair, there is no substitute for a good diet, effective hair care regimen and oiling hair on a regular basis. However, there are a couple of hair fall treatments that can be undertaken to restore or achieve healthy hair.

It took me 1 Year to decide whether I wanted to go through with the hair restoration procedure using a Natural Looking Hair piece. I did a lot of research and consulted with many people who had done the procedure.

I was convinced to go ahead due to the information session / in-depth knowledge and the excellent customer service skills of Sanjay- the manager.

I did the procedure 1 month ago and I can honestly say that it was the best decision ever. Advanced Hair Studio provides the best quality for the Hair Pieces. The staff takes the time to understand what you are looking for as a customer. They style your hair based on your facial structure and I must truly admit that their stylists are pure Artists! My favourite stylist is Mohamad from Lebanon. He does magic with his hands and I am always thrilled with the new styles/ suggestions he provides.

I must admit that AHS is on the more expensive side if you were to consider the other competitors in Dubai. However, it is all worth every penny spent! You will not regret it.

Do not over think it. Just go ahead an do the procedure. You will evolve into a whole new person! Believe me! :-)

I started losing my hair in my mid-twenties and in spite of trying all sorts of treatments it gradually got worse and worse. By my late twenties I started cutting my hair short. Whenever I tried to grow it, it used to look a mess and was impossible to style because of my receding and thinning. I was looking at doing a hair transplant for a while, but I kept delaying it in hope that there was some alternative.

When I was in my mid-thirties I first came across AHS. I was a bit skeptical but I thought I’d find out what they could do. I was expecting a sales pitch but what I learned about hair loss and hair restoration from them was presented in a straightforward and logical way, without lots of medical terminology. They take time to explain the root cause of the problem and explore all the different treatments.

I decided to go ahead with the treatment and as it turns out, having AHS fix my hair was one of the best decisions I ever made. I still cannot believe how good my results are. I just wish I’d done it 10 years earlier rather than wasting so much time (and hair!). I would urge anyone who is thinking of doing something to check them out.
