🎃 Pumpkin Hair Benefits 🎃

Your hair follicles require a constant supply of nutrients for optimal growth and health. Pumpkins are a rich source of nutrients and are in season from now until December. Why not make the most of their benefits whilst they are readily available.

Pumpkins Promote Hair Growth

Pumpkin is a rich source of minerals including potassium and zinc. Potassium helps in keeping hair healthy and improve re-growth. Zinc helps maintain collagen and plays an important role in promoting healthy hair. They also contain folate, an important B vitamin that stimulates hair growth by improving blood circulation.

A Great Conditioner for Dry Hair

If you have dry hair, you can prepare a simple hair conditioner using pumpkin.

2 cups of chopped and cooked pumpkin
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon yoghurt

Make a puree with the mixture of pumpkin and yogurt in a food processor or blender. Then add coconut oil and honey to make a smooth mixture. Apply it to damp shampooed hair, wear a plastic shower cap and leave for 15 minutes. Rinse off thoroughly and style as usual.

 

Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds consist of cucurbitin, a unique amino that may be responsible for hair growth. They also contain vitamin C that plays a crucial role in hair growth.

Eat them raw or try dry roasted seeds as a snack.
Use them in baking, garnish for soups and salads, or with granola.

Working with COVID-protected facilities

Working Safely

  • Routinely asking patients for relevant COVID-19 history of their own health and people they are in contact with. It is important that patients provide accurate information.
  • Following social distancing guidelines by limiting the contact of patients with one another whether in consultation or in a procedure and will arrange waiting room seating accordingly.
  • Using suitable equipment/PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) as recommended by the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) or another equivalent governmental agency.
  • Routinely using relevant health histories and daily temperature monitoring of all clinic staff and patients as part of their strategy to prevent contagion. Additionally, and where available, follows all government guidelines on use of testing to monitor staff.
  • In addition to using proper PPE, each clinic uses appropriate cleansing, disinfecting and sterilization procedures throughout the office/clinic. Also, uses proper waste disposal methods for any materials that could be contaminated.
  • Advising patients of handwashing protocols in the office/clinic and how to change gloves, gown and masks.
  • Assuring the public that the staff have received additional training with regards to proper COVID-19 infection control methods
  • And perhaps most importantly, the surgeon you have chosen is the one performing the surgical steps of your procedure, rather than delegating it to unlicensed technicians.

 

Clinic Advice

Regarding COVID19, we are working with selected COVID-protected facilities who have now reopened. These clinics have started a phased return model for a new normal with various safety measures in place including a limited number of procedures, reduced footfall through the clinic and enhanced PPE for staff. On the day, you will be asked to complete a COVID questionnaire and have your temperature taken on entry, as well as being asked to wash your hands. You will be asked to wear a face mask so that theoretically you are protected and you protect staff members in case anyone happens to be positive whilst asymptomatic.

Surgery Group have adopted guidelines from the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery for use in all clinics taking into account UK law and each clinic has completed a COVID19 risk assessment of the patient journey through the clinic and taken steps to minimise risk, and we hope that by doing so, the risk of contracting coronavirus is significantly less than your weekly supermarket shop, however, it is not possible to guarantee that the risk of catching it is zero, such as in the nature of the virus.

To be clear, the government’s advice for the time being remains to stay at home unless you need to leave the house for one of 4 reasons including “any medical need” –

Corona Virus Government Advice

Without specific national guidance on hair transplant clinics, we deem it safe to offer the service in a limited capacity with the measures we have taken, but it is up to you to decide if leaving the house to attend a hair transplant clinic constitutes a “medical need”.
