Increasing work pressure, stress, pollution levels are leading to an increase in hair problems. Skin doctors and hair experts have noted that patients coming to them, complaining of hair fall have exponentially increased in recent years. Needless to say the market today is swamped by beauty and hair care products claiming to provide miraculous solutions to hair problems.
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?
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.
Is silicone treatment bad for hair?
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.

An effective surgical method is Strand-by-Strand Ultimate. It is a day-long hair transplant procedure that aims to restore your hair in a completely invisible manner. Their team of experts and doctors achieves this feat by completing follicular unit hair transplant, with the objective of giving a natural orientation to your transplanted hair, which makes it look almost indistinguishable from the natural hairs of the surrounding areas. But if surgery is not for you then you can opt for Flashpoints.
Flashpoints is a patented and trademarked hair extension procedure developed by Advanced Hair Studio. Flashpoints are a breakthrough non-surgical procedure in hair technology that promises to completely transform your dull, lifeless, brittle and/or short hair in just a matter of a few hours.

Scientists say that this is due to the fact that the procedure uses no artificial glues or waxes. Further, no weaving is involved.
