Retinoids are a family of natural and synthetic forms of vitamin A that are dermatology's main standard topical agents to prevent and treat early signs of aging. It has a long-standing, evidence-based utility in treating hyperpigmentation, acne, photoaging, and mild acne scarring.

A variety of acids are utilized in dermatology to improve acne, hyperpigmentation, photodamage, and scarring. Common acids include beta-hydroxy acids (BHA) and alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA). The most commonly utilized AHAs include lactic, citric, glycolic, and mandelic, while salicylic acid represents the only BHA. These acids help kill acne bacteria, remove dead skin cells from the pore and increase skin cell turnover. They can be helpful for certain skin types but are often very drying and irritating. Acids are very beneficial for mature skin types and work well for the occasional chemical peel. Whether or not a person needs an AHA or BHA in addition to a retinoid as part of a daily skincare routine may be best left to consultation with your dermatologist.

Once you have decided to undergo hair transplant surgery, you will, of course, want to maximize the chances of its success. To help you achieve the best possible results you may need to avoid certain activities, such as smoking, before and after surgery. So how soon after a hair transplant can you smoke? It is a fact that smoking isn't good for circulation or the body overall. However, if you have the strength and willpower to quit smoking, I certainly encourage it. Though, I haven't seen a single complaint that smoking has killed transplanted hair or stunted hair growth. During the initial hair transplant healing phase, it's probably better to at least cut-down smoking. It's also better not to smoke at least 15-25 days prior to surgery if you can. 
 
In an ideal world, we would like to see patients quit smoking completely. However, if this is not possible then we advise patients to stop smoking as soon as possible before their surgery and to continue to avoid cigarettes for as long as possible after their treatment, in order to maximize the chances of a success hair transplant. 
 
Here are a few ways where smoking can negatively affect the hair transplant process.
 
Constriction of blood vessels –  We know that tobacco smoke causes the body’s blood vessels to constrict and harden. Which is why, less blood is able to reach the scalp, threatening the survival of any newly-implanted hair grafts. To give these fragile grafts the best possible chance of good growth, it is necessary that the maximum amount of blood and nutrients getting to the hair transplant site.
 
Longer healing time –  Smoking can also lead to a more prolonged recovery time following surgery. This is because the chemicals in cigarettes impede the blood’s ability to carry oxygen around the body. With less oxygen getting to the hair transplant area, it may take a longer time for surgical incisions to heal. A lengthy recovery period puts patients at greater risk of infection and poor scarring.
 
Poor hair growth – The reduced blood flow to a smoker’s scalp can hamper the growth of newly-implanted hair grafts. This is because the scalp is receiving less oxygen and very less essential nutrients necessary for healing and graft survival.

Maybe you’ve heard that wearing a helmet too often will make you bald or that if you wash your hair too much you’ll suffer hair loss. Well, they’re both are facts but indirectly.

Brushing to Grow Hair?
 
The idea of brushing the hair 100 times a day to stimulate scalp circulation is a well-known fantasy. In fact, if you brush your hair way too much, you may end up losing hair.
This myth comes from the thought that hair loss was due to poor circulation and that brushing or massaging would improve blood flow and provide extra nutrition to the follicles. The fact is, bald or not, there’s no much difference in scalp circulation.
 
Styling and Hair Loss?
 
There’s some truth and some myth when it comes to hairstyling and Hair Loss.
It is true that some hairstyles, such as cornrows or tight ponytails, can cause hair loss. These styles put undue tension on the hair follicles. But as for hair sprays, perming, or coloring resulting in hair loss, there’s no truth to that idea. These applications may cause some damage to the hair strands because of excessive dryness but the all-important follicles, located under the skin, stay safe.
And what about the idea that haircuts will make your hair grow back thicker and faster? That’s wishful thinking. Everyone’s hair growth and length depend on their own respective unique hair cycle, which is based on both nutrition and heredity. The longer is your growth phase, the longer your hair growth.
 
Blowing away your hair?
 
What about hairdryers? Are these follicular incinerators?
The good news is there is no evidence that hair dryers can cause thinning hair. However, anything too hot may lead to brittle and breakable hair. Hold the hairdryer at a normal distance from your scalp and dry it to your heart’s content.
 
Vitamins and Steroids?
 
Think about this well if you were losing hair because of lack of vitamins or minerals in your diet, why wouldn’t the back and sides of your head be affected? In reality, vitamin deficiency results in an even distribution of hair loss all over the head. Of course, it doesn’t affect hair loss by taking vitamins on a regular basis for your overall health.
Your hair follicles width and amount are generally based on heredity. So claims of hair growing miracle drugs or natural hair loss treatments are a myth.
However, the use of steroids can cause hair loss. However, research has proven that anabolic steroids raise the levels of baldness-inducing male hormones. For those who are genetically prone to hair loss, steroids can speed up the loss in as little as 3 to 6 months. Though this loss may be reversed, it can be permanent.
 
The Hair Loss Family Tree
 
Many people believe that if their father has a head full of hair, they’ll keep a good head of hair. Hair loss and hair growth are set by a genetic combination determined by both sides of your family.
That means, if your family tree is filled with balding scalps, you do have a better chance of losing hair.
