So, you are losing hair and are thinking that the only way out is to get a hair transplant; you would not be a unique person. There are several people, all over the world, who are opting for hair restoration procedures in order to return to a life of confidence and looking good. However, all said and done, hair restoration or hair transplant is also a medical procedure and there is always the chance that there might be certain side effects. So, before you actually get your transplant done, it would be best to talk to your doctor and gain a clear picture as to what side effects could be caused in the process.
There are some that are common, while some are uncommon; some are temporary and some last for a longer period of time. We’ve enumerated below most common side effects are discussed here:
1. Hair Shedding
When you get a hair transplant, you would think that your hair would only grow and become thicker. However, the truth is that a lot of people will actually have to deal with fall first. This process is actually known as shedding and is a normal process after transplantation. This happens because the root get intact and the hair shaft fall down an growth starts from root again. The transplanted hairs fall out in 2-3 weeks and the new growth becomes visible by 3-4 months.
Sometimes in a few cases there can be shock loss of the existing hair because of the surgery. This is rare and will regrow back within a few months. We at AK Clinics, routinely explain this to our patients in our pre-op counselling.
Whether you are getting a follicular unit transplant or follicular unit extraction, there are bound to be some cuts and nicks, and there is bound to be some blood loss. While most experienced doctors will ensure that the blood loss is minimised to the minimum possible still there might be some ooze in the post-op period that can be controlled by pressing a gauze piece. So it is important that the patient should share if they are taking any blood thinning medicines or suffering with any bleeding related problem. We hardly ever encounter this problem.
If you have chosen a good doctor, you can be sure that you will not have to face any infections, but even with the best of facilities there might be some infection for which a short course of antibiotics is required. We’ve actually very rarely seen such problem in patients at AK Clinics.
A hair restoration procedure, FUE or FUT is a surgical process and there is bound to be some amount of pain, especially in FUT. While in most cases, the doctor will administer sedatives and anaesthesia, however there are rare cases, where there is pain even after the procedure has completed. The doctor will prescribe you some painkillers to avoid this in the post-op period. Sometimes patients might have stretching sensation in FUT cases. In our patients, we just prescribe paracetamol for such situation ever faced.
This is perhaps the most common side effect and is something that is experienced that a majority of people who undergo a hair transplant. The itching takes place because of the formation of scabs at the transplant site. The easiest method of handling this situation is to keep spraying the solution given over the grafts and wash the scalp with a mild or medication shampoo after the initial week of surgery. The itching too, as is the case with other side effects, will vanish over the period of a few days. Sometimes, it is caused by the use of minoxidil as well which has to be stopped.
This is yet another side effect that is very common and is seen in a majority of people who have undergone the process. However, the sites of swelling might vary from person to person. So while some people might have swelling on their forehead, for others it might be around their eyes. In certain cases, there might be even what you would call a black eye. Normally, the swelling tends to subside in a few days, however, if the same does not happen in a few days, it would be best to meet a doctor. But at AK Clinics, we have devised a special technique because of which there is hardly any swelling.
The numbness is often attributed to the cutting of nerves in FUT procedure. However, at our clinic, we remain in the superficial plane avoiding any nerve damage and hence numbness.
If you have undergone an FUE, then you will have tiny micro scars, which will disappear in a few weeks. In addition, when new hair grows, these dot like marks will get hidden. However, if you have undergone an FUT, then you are bound to have a linear scar, but with proper hair growth and an intelligently decided style, you will have nothing to worry about. In FUE, at AK Clinics, we take out one graft and leave the other to avaoid formation of linear scar.
This happens when there are buried grafts that are not taken out properly. While most of the times, these cysts appear in the form of a cluster of pimples, there are only rare few cases, wherein they take on a more aggravated form. Generally, these cysts disappear in a few weeks, but if they do not, then you might have to make another trip to your doctor. We, at AK Clinics, take care while extraction of grafts that we do not leave back any buried hair.
While it might sound odd, hiccups are yet another side effect that might plague certain patients of hair restoration. This is a very rare side effect and normally lasts only a few days.

A 33 yr old male presented with the complaint of baldness for the past 7 years. He had developed Grd VI baldness. He was having curly hair. So, a test grafting was done in this patient. ( Test grafting: Ten grafts were taken out one day prior to the surgery to assess the curl of the hair and find out whether we can do the FUE hair transplant in him or not. Since that test was positive, i.e the grafts were extracted, so we took him up for the surgery).
Around 2010 grafts were taken out. The surgery was uneventful.
The implantation took more time than the routine as the hair were curly. But, we were able to complete it in one day only.
The patient has got result and send his Result pics, Now the Patient wants more grafts for his back side after two years…..
Immediate PostOp Images
A patient from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia had undergone FUT surgery 7 years ago and had good results. He wanted more area to be covered and this time he wanted it to be done with FUE technique only. As he had curly hairs, we performed the Fox Test before doing FUE surgery on him. We took out 10 grafts and we were able to take out 9 intact grafts. So, the result of the test was positive, which meant that he could easily get FUE surgery done. The patient wanted to cover the whole of the remaining scalp. And he was interested only in using the scalp hairs for the transplant. However, it was challenging for us to do so since he had curly hairs and fibrosis on the back of his head. Also, the transection rate of scalp hair around strip scar was also more. Since he wanted to cover a broad area, we had no other option than using hair from his beard. The density of the hair in the beard was less and the hair were more curly as compared to his scalp hair. We were able to extract only 330 grafts from the beard. Thus, he was given 2340 grafts only (2010 from Scalp & 330 from Beard) by Bio- FUE technique. Here we are sharing the pre op and immediate post pics of patient.

Extraction from Beard
This case study is a part of the education endeavor of AK clinics in which we have earlier also shared some cases and will discuss further as well.
This particular case study is about Mr. Singh, 29 years old male who was diagnosed with severe scarring on face in beard due to recurrent nodulocystic acne since last many years. We are hereby presenting the features, causes, diagnosis and treatment that was administered to him.
Features: When Mr. Singh first walked in to our clinic, he came with the severe scarring due to acne on the face, especially in the beard area. On careful examination there were multiple atrophic scars ranging from few millimeters to 1.5 cm2. Also there was loss of beard hair in those particular affected scars making those scars prominently visible when patient keeps the trimmed beard.
But there was no active lesion of acne at the time of examination. According to history, patient took the treatment for nodulocystic acne in past and since last few years he was not having any acne lesion.
Cause: The cause of acne is multifactorial and severity varies from person to person. Most of the patients have acne problem during their teenage and if not treated promptly and adequately, it may leave permanent scarring on the face.
Diagnosis: Diagnosis was made clinically on the basis on history and examination of affected area and did not require any special investigation.
Treatment: As the patient had no active lesion of acne, he did not require anything for that but the scarring and patches of alopecia in the beard were of cosmetic concern. He had consulted earlier also outside for hair transplant and had undergone a trial of 30 grafts of hair transplant as well. Thus, we also suggested him hair transplant in the affected areas to camouflage the scar and get the normal looking beard so he can even keep the trimmed hair in the beard without having visible scars on the beard. Around 1400 grafts were used to transplant in the scar area and to get the beard in perfect look.
Special attention was given in regards to following points during the surgery to create a natural look with best possible outcome as the scar tissue has minimal to no blood supply that can adversely affect the survival of implanted grafts.
- Recipient sites creation
The force required to create the slits is more as scar tissue is harder than the normal skin, so CTS blade must be sharp enough to penetrate the skin without much of the extra force.
Skin has to be fixed more firmly by taking help from assistant to decrease its fluidity to make the slits in proper direction with lowest possible angle.
The density is given less in the scar tissue in comparison to the beard recreation done in the normal circumstances. This is because the vascularity is less, so more grafts will require more vascularity for the survival which is not possible in case of scarring. Once the result of first surgery comes and if patient feels that the density is low, another sitting can be undertaken to increase the density to get the desired result as the nature of scar tissue will be changed slightly and the vascularity will be increasedto some extent because of the already growing hair due to previous surgery.This way a surgeon can achieve a good result with optimum survival of the implanted grafts.
- Graft harvesting
The caliber of the beard hair is more in comparison to the scalp hair, so hair must be extracted from the center part of the occiput where the hair are thicker than the other area. Beard hair mostly contains single hair, so surgeon may choose only single and double hair grafts to match it.
In the small and very superficial scars which are minimally visible or just visible because of the absence of hair, single hair grafts are preferred. Such scars were mainly present in the cheek portion of beard in our patient. The larger scars were mainly present along the jaw line. We implanted two and three hair grafts in such scars are density given was already low so create a volume we preferred such grafts. The idea behind this is though we are implanting less number of grafts with low density the more number of hairs will grow which can camouflage the area effectively. Further the lower area is less visible if patient grows beard hair slightly longer so despite of having three hair grafts it won’t look unnatural.
Another reason for using the larger grafts with two and three hair in the bigger scar tissue is that the inelasticity of the scar tissue, so the slits tends to become wider and bigger during the manipulation which sometime do not collapse even when the stretching is released so can’t hold the smaller grafts properly in the same angle and direction.
Following are the pre and post procedure photographs. Now patient is happy as scars are not visible and he can keep the trimmer hair on beard.

Conclusion: Beard hair translation can be considered in a patient with patchy alopecia in beard due to various causes once the primary cause for the alopecia is no longer active. It can also be used as method of camouflage to hide the scars in beard area if patient is ready to keep the sufficient length of beard hair.
The biggest conference of Hair Transplant in the world, the 24th WORLD CONGRESS ISHRS 2016 was held in one of the most happening places on the Earth, the LAS VEGAS….known for……“Whatever happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” The meeting was held from Sept 28-October 1, 2016.
It was a three day conference preceded by a day full of pre – conference workshops.
One of these workshops was on Powered FUE technique by the dull punch. The workshop director was the author himself. It was a three hours course ( equally divided into didactic lectures and hands on training on models). Along with him, there were very experienced teachers, Dr. Scott Boden& Dr. Marc Bishara from USA. The workshop was a three hours course, one in the morning and the other one in the evening. Both were sold out.
The workshop started with welcome by the director followed by his technique of FUE. He highlighted the important steps of extraction and especially the Alignment, Engagement and advancement which make it possible to harvest graft at a high speed with virtually very less trauma. He also highlighted other steps of the surgery due to which their patients’ get good results.
Apart from this, he also delivered a lecture on the role of ergonomics in improving the results of FUE. He highlighted how the use of proper instrumentation, magnification, operating lights, operating chair play a role in making it possible for the team to deliver a good result.
Dr. Aman Dua, the other surgeon from AK Clinics, was also a faculty for the Basics course held for the Beginners learning hair transplant. She spoke on the topic of Basics of FUE and then led a table on the hands on practice on FUE
On the first day of the congress, the author participated in a very important panel discussion on FUE delegation. The panel unanimously agreed upon the fact that the part which involves incisions in the FUE Hair transplant ( extraction and slit making) should be done by the surgeons only and not the technicians as is being done in so many parts of the world, especially Turkey and India. The author highlighted that how shadow surgeries are being carried out in every nook and corner and how it has impacted the patient safety especially the devastating effects on the scalp donor areas.
Dr. Aman Dua was also a Table leader in the coffee with experts session in which she shared her experience on the unique aspects of Hair transplant in Indian patients.
The author also participated in three more meetings apart from the General session. Firstly, the FUE Research Committee, in which the author shared that their study
“Comparison of Out of Body time of grafts and Results in FUE” has received the ISHRS Research grant and also the IRB approval. Ten clinics from all over the world (including USA, Greece, Pakistan, Philippines, India) will participate in the study. If any patient wants to participate in that study, he can contact the author for the same.
Then was the Global Council Meeting of the ISHRS of which the AHRS India
(Association of Hair restoration Surgeons of India) is a part and the author being the President represented India. Again the members raised the issue of how patients are being lured by fake advertisements by different hair transplant device companies and how it is causing detrimental effects in the patients’ lives in the long term.
The third was the meeting of the Board of Governors of Asian Association of Hair Restoration Surgeons meeting in which the broad outline of the next years’ scientific meeting was discussed.
Dr. Kapil Dua also presented a poster on …Challenges of Facial hair transplant and Limitations of Body hair transplant while Dr. Aman Dua presented on PRP – the frugal way.
The highlight of the congress on the personal level was the unanimous election of the author as the Board of Governor to the ISHRS. He is the first Indian to be elected to the highest office in the biggest hair transplant organization in the world.
Your hair is an integral part of your personality and losing it can often be quite traumatic for most people. However, as simple as the hair might seem, it is actually quite a complex structure and within the hair and below the scalp, there is so much happening that it is often tough for the mind to fathom. Its complexity also arises from facts such as some people have thick lustrous hair, but some keep losing them, no matter how much they take care of it. Then there are also genetic issues, wherein, for no apparent fault of their own, they end up losing much hair.
Most of the times, people are not even aware of the fact that there is something known as genetic hair loss. However, it is actually easy enough to observe – if your father had lost most of his hair during his late 30s or early 40s and you are going the same way too, chances are that you too are suffering from genetic hair loss. Studies have shown that genetic hair loss need not be passed on only from father to son or mother to daughter; if there is someone in your immediate family who has suffered massive hair loss, it could be passed on to you too.
- Can genetic baldness be stopped?
There is actually no way to stop genetic baldness, because it is already ‘engrained in your DNA’, however, there are methods by which you can reduce the hair loss. In addition, there are also methods by which you can regain some of the hair that you might have lost. If you have noticed that there are people in your family who are suffering from hair loss, at an early stage in life, then you might want to start taking some precautions in your early years too. Ideally, you need to make sure that you eat right and not indulge in unhealthy habits, which could lead to hair loss.
In order to attempt stopping genetic hair loss, it is important to understand how it actually happens – medically known as androgenetic alopecia, the condition is also known as male or female pattern baldness. The hair loss will start and progress in a certain manner – normally starting at the temples and then working inwards or starting at the crown and working outwards towards the side of the head. The condition actually manifests itself, when there is an increase in the DHT or Dihydrotestosterone levels in the body. These elevated levels of DHT reduce and generally hamper the life cycle of the susceptible hair.
The moment you start noticing a few extra hair on your comb, or on your pillow, you can meet a Dermatologist/trichologist. Chances are that they will prescribe medication such as Minoxidil or Finasteride along with some multivitamins (e.g. Biotin) and anti-oxidants, which will help to reduce the hair loss. You could also ask your doctor about herbal options, which will reduce the effect of the DHT, allowing hair to grow in a better way.
- Can hereditary hair loss be reversed?
There would be those who argue that hair loss is something that cannot be reversed, but if you have started losing hair because of genetics, there are some steps you can take to ensure that you slow the process, if not completely stop it. For starters, you can practice better hair care procedures, such as oiling regularly and washing and conditioning it with good brands of products. While it might be tempting to wash your hair every day, it is not the healthiest option for your hair, because every time you wash it, you are stripping your scalp of natural oils, leaving the hair weak and vulnerable to breakage. Increase the intake of foods such as meat, eggs, cheese, legumes, nuts, green leafy vegetables and milk. All of these will help increase the natural levels of protein in your body and since hair is made of a protein named keratin, it will help in the long run.
- Can female genetic hair loss be reversed?
As is the case with male genetic hair loss, with female genetic hair loss too, getting the same hair back might not be possible; however, you could try to slow down the process by investing in good hair care products. Women tend to spend a lot of time styling their hair, using chemical products, heat and tools that often damage the hair. If you are starting to notice the genetic hair loss, it would be wise to stay away from the curling or straightening irons, strong chemicals, such as those used for straightening or perming and also curlers. You might also want to switch to a better shampoo and conditioner – one which is gentler on the scalp and hair. Increase the regular intake of foods which are high in protein, such as eggs, meat, spinach, kale, milk, legumes and nuts, which help improve the keratin levels in your body. Ask your hair specialist for herbal oils that you can use for hair massage, because these are known to show results.
In more severe cases, in both men and women, you might be prescribed topical medications such as Minoxidil or oral tablets such as Finasteride and some multivitamins containing Biotin. However, you need to make sure that you talk to your doctor first, and take these only on their advice. If the hair loss has gone beyond saving, then you could consider getting a hair transplant.
- What is the normal genetic hair loss pattern in men?
Androgenetic alopecia or male pattern hair loss presents itself in mostly two ways – the hair will start receding backwards from the temples. This means that you will start noticing a larger forehead and it will keep getting more prominent. The other pattern that is commonly noticed is the appearance of a bald patch on the top of the head and the patch starts to enlarge, moving in an outward direction. In very rare cases, hair will start falling off in random patches and in just as rare cases, the hair loss will be absolute in less than a year.
Several people, all over the world, are struggling with hair loss and while in many cases, the loss is minimal, there are cases, where people have gone completely bald. However, no matter how extensive the hair loss, it always starts with a few extra hair on the comb or towel. For people, who notice the signs, hair loss need not cross that boundary where it enters the stage of balding.
If you are someone who is noticing the first signs of severe hair loss, then it would be best that you head to a hair specialist immediately. Because many a times, when the hair loss has just started, tackling it is much easier and in most cases, only medication is sufficient. As a matter of fact, there are plenty of hair restoration medicines that can not only reduce hair loss, but also stop it altogether.
However, choosing the hair restoration medicine is a different science altogether and should not be done without professional opinion. Knowing a little more in detail about these medicines, is of course something anyone can do.
Firstly, you need to understand that simply because an infomercial talks at great lengths about how effective a hair restoration medicine is, does not mean that it will be right for you too. You need to meet a hair specialist first, who will conduct a thorough examination of your hair and advice you not only on the extent of hair loss, but also the specific type. This will also allow them to prescribe the right medication for you.
The first standard for any medication, hair restoration or others, happens to be an approval from FDA and specially USFDA. So, if the medicine has been approved by your local FDA or the USFDA, then you can be a little surer about the same. The approval indicates that several stringent tests and checks have been conducted on the medication and the efficacy of the same has been proven in several clinical trials. This actually dwindles down the choice, because there are only three main medications that have been approved by the USFDA and are known to show genuine results.
These three medications are Minoxidil, Finasteride and Dutasteride, although the brand names might vary, in accordance with the company manufacturing the same. So, while Minoxidil is a topical agent, Finasteride has to be taken orally and both of these are prescribed only for men. Dutasteride has been approved in countries other than the United States of America as well, although its status with FDA is still in the unclear.
Now, let’s start by looking at the brands in detail:
In the previous part of this article, we started with the basics of handling your child’s hair, including shampooing, combing the hair without hurting the child and taking your child for the all-important haircuts. In this concluding part, we will continue to look at some other aspects associated with children’s hair.
The right haircut: While you might think that a certain hairstyle looks really cool on some kid you saw on TV, it does not mean that it will work well on your child too. You need to consider the type of hair your child has and more importantly, how high or low maintenance it will be. If you are a working parent, then you need to get a haircut for your child, which is easy to maintain and requires minimal attention, during the day.
Many parents like their child to have a cowlick or a protruding tuft at the front of the head. While this style might look really cute, it is often difficult to handle, especially if your child has curly hair. When you are at the stylist, ask them to blow dry the hair from the roots, right till the tips. If you have a hair dryer at home, you too can do the same, with the help of a tight bristled brush. However, ensure that you do not use a high heat setting, as it could hurt your child. Such hair styles need to have a certain amount of weight to them, so that they stay settled, which is why you might have to let them grow long. When the hair grows long, you can either blend them with the rest of the hair or allow them to continue as a cowlick. If the cowlick refuses to settle down, you could use a styling gel, cream or even leave-in conditioner, as it will help soften the hair. Then you can either leave it as is or blend it with the rest of the hair.
Keeping it trimmed: You might have gotten your child to sit through a haircut, but that does not mean that it is all over and done with. You will have to keep getting regular trims, because this will not only ensure that the hair is healthy, but also allow it to grow longer. It is imperative that a trim, or even a haircut for that matter, be started with hair that is damp. Here are some of the things that you, as a parent, too need to keep in mind, while your child is getting a haircut or trim:
Damage control: Toddlers can be extremely hyper and many a times, they can get creative in their own way with their hair. If they find a pair of scissors, they could very well give themselves a haircut, leaving you and your stylist to take care of it. Let’s say, your little one has cut up all the hair in the front, you could try to create short bangs, which when grown out, can be styled in different manners. For girls, the hair can be evened out and then be wearing a hairband, the hair can be neatly pushed back. If it is only a chunk of hair that is missing, you can ask your stylist to create layers, which will allow the missing chunk to blend in. However, if your child has managed to hack all of the hair, then you will need to rush to the salon, because only a professional might be able to handle it. In the most severe of situations, your child might need to have his or her hair taken to a boy cut or even a crew cut. In such a situation, invest in cute headbands, hats or even bandanas.
Here are some other tips that you need to keep at the top of your mind, when you are handling your child’s hair:
The moment you become a mother, your world becomes all about your baby – everything you do is about how to keep your baby healthy and happy. When it comes to the good health of your little one, you need to make sure that that you keep in mind his or her hair as well. The hair of children, infants as well as toddlers are different as compared to adults, which is why the care required for them is also different.
Here are some of the things you need to keep in mind, while handling the hair of your child:
Shampoo : Your child’s hair will also get dirty, which means that you will have to wash it on a regular basis. As is the case, with adults, the hair of children also should ideally be washed twice to thrice a week, or as per need. Choose a shampoo that is meant for children, because if you use your shampoo for your child, you are exposing him or her to stronger chemicals as well as the possibility of their eyes burning or getting irritated. Adult shampoos tend to dry hair out much more, but since adults tend to use conditioners and other styling products, the dryness is compensated. However, the same might not happen with children, which is why it is crucial that a specific shampoo be used.
Babies need to have their hair washed only once or twice a week, while older children might need it more. If your child has dry hair, make sure that you oil it first, ideally with olive or coconut oil, which can be warmed a little first. The oil will not only hydrate the hair, but also nourish it, allowing it to grow longer.
There are also situations, where children are not comfortable with their hair getting washed or shampooed. You can do something to distract your child, by either singing a song or telling a story. Many a times, a simple bath toy might be enough to take your child’s attention away for a few minutes. Alternately, you could give your child a doll, allowing your child to give the doll a bath, including shampooing the hair. Invest in shampoos that have special smells or foam up rather generously or even feature your child’s favourite cartoon character!
The manner in which the shampoo is used is also important – you have to remember that the shampoo will go a long way, which is why you need to take only a small amount. Pat the shampoo through the hair, instead of scrunching the hair up. This will reduce the chances of the hair getting tangled. In addition, use shampoo only if the hair is really dirty, because most times, toddler hair becomes clean with only water. Once you have shampooed, make sure that you rinse the hair thoroughly, because even the smallest amount of shampoo residue could lead to scalp infections or other problems. Additionally, any shampoo residue could lead to the hair becoming dirtier, allowing grime to stick to the hair and scalp.
Combing: Before you even think of washing your child’s hair, you need to make sure that the hair is completely untangled. Ideally, you should start with your hands, by running your fingers through the length of the hair, slowly and gently removing the tangles. Next, you could use a wide toothed comb or a paddle brush, using which you should work your way up from the tips of the hair. This means that you should remove the tangles at the base of the hair, and then move upwards, slowly removing all the tangles. Normally, it is the hair at the nape of the neck that tend to get more tangled, which is why you should pay special attention to the same.

It would be best that you not use metal brushes, or combs that have minimal spacing, as these would end up hurting your little one. It would also make sense to not use any styling tools on your child’s hair, as the heat could causes severe damage. If there are still snarls in the hair that you are unable to remove, do not wet the hair, because that will only make the condition worse. Use some hair conditioner or even a gentle spray detangler and work the snarls out slowly. You could hold the hair at the scalp, while removing the tangles, as this will not hurt the child. In case your child has hair that tends to tangle really easy, it might be a good idea to get the hair trimmed regularly, so that the length is always manageable.
Haircuts and trims: As is the case with adults, regular haircuts and trims are important for children too, and it would be wise to find a salon that specialises in cutting children’s hair. Taking your child to your salon might not make sense, because neither will the staff have the precise know-how about how to cut a child’s hair, nor will they have the required tools to do the same. There are plenty of places, which ensure that your child will have a hassle free haircut. If it is your child’s first haircut, it would be a good idea to take him or her with your, when you are getting your hair cut. This will show that there is no pain involved and really nothing to worry about. Allow them to have fun on the swivel chairs or spray bottles, so that they see the salon as a fun place to be.
Schedule the haircut at a time, when your child is least likely to be cranky, which would normally be post a nap. Ask for a member of the staff, who is extremely comfortable with children and has done several haircuts previously. Even if your child does get fidgety or nervous, tell the stylist beforehand and not in front of the child, because it will make him or her all the more nervous. Bring along a book or toy that your child loves, because that will aid you in distracting your child. Make sure that your child is able to see himself or herself in the mirror at all times, because this will allow them to witness the entire process.
In the next article, we will continue to look at some of the other aspects of taking care of your child’s hair.
In the previous article we looked at what causes oily hair and what can be done to either handle it or avoid it altogether. In this article, we will look at some easy to do tips and tricks, which will help reduce the oil in your hair naturally.
