October 7, 2011 in hair loss
It’s not very pleasant at all when hair loss occurs to you, even if it is a common problem. People have been searching for effective hair loss treatments for centuries, and even the experts argue over what does and doesn’t work. To determine if something is helpful to you should give it a go, providing it is of course safe. The following are some hair loss treatments, both mainstream and alternative, that many people have had success with.
Those of you that have done some research probably know that laser treatment for hair loss is becoming more and more popular. It is actually possible to increase blood flow to your hair through the roots using laser treatment. There are certain products you can buy, such as laser combs, that claim they can help your hair to grow again. Although you can buy these devices, physicians also do laser treatments and you might want to get a second opinion before spending your money. You may want to try an over the counter device such as the laser comb, but their effectiveness is disputed. You can feel safe knowing that they FDA has actually approved this product for use, but has not guaranteed that they will work. Physicians, on the other hand, have a higher grade variety of laser equipment which might be your best bet. It has been demonstrated that, in some patients, laser treatment has provided hair follicle stimulation and growth over time. It has been noted that hormonal changes in pregnant women have caused their hair to fall out in many cases. Aside from losing your hair, the texture or thickness of your hair might change while you’re pregnant. This is almost always a symptom that will go away in a few months. This condition, though temporary, might bother some people who would feel better consulting their doctor about why this is happening. Conditions like these often pass very quickly so there is no need to worry. No need to worry! Just have a little patience and understand that this is part of a natural process.
You should be careful when washing and drying your hair, as there are certain practices that can contribute to hair loss. Use a gentle shampoo as it is less likely to cause any allergic or other reaction on your scalp. Right after washing your hair you should not rub the towel harshly. Do not run a brush through wet hair, it is much gentler to use a comb with wide teeth, you can always brush your hair later on with it is dry. It is also very valuable to let your hair dry naturally rather than subject it to frequent heating and drying. Generally, you should be as gentle as possible with your hair as rough treatment will only accelerate hair loss.
Quite a few people dye their hair because they either like the different color, or they are trying to hide their grays. However, one thing that may contribute to hair loss is excessive dyeing, so you need to be careful. Using a natural dye, like henna instead of the ones with harsh chemicals is something you should do if you use dyes.
Certain medications have been proven effective for hair loss. For hair loss the FDA has approved Finasteride and Minoxidil (better known as Rogaine). The reality is that Rogaine is one of the best known treatments for what is known as male pattern baldness, it is only effective for about half the men who take it. Propecia or Finasteride has a better track record for this problem. It is unlikely that any drug will restore your hair loss, if you have already lost all or most of your hair. Hair transplant surgery may be your only option. Suffice to say, hair loss is a treatable condition for some people. The closest thing to a guaranteed hair loss replacement solution is hair transplant surgery. The degree of your hair loss, and what treatment you choose, will ultimately provide you with good or bad results. You may, however, have to use several techniques over time before you see positive results.
