Finding the best hair loss treatment in town? It sounds easier than done. There are many different treatments available and information is readily available on the Internet.
There are a few common treatments that are available to treat male and female hair loss problems:
Cheapest & Convenient Method
Buy a wig. However this is only a stop-gap measure and might not be a long term solution. Use anti-hair loss shampoo and conditioner. This may be the popular method that most people would use initially when they first discover that they are losing hair. What go into these hair products are the natural herbs that are re-owned for their properties to cure or reduce the condition. Sometimes this method works if the problem is minor as the shampoo will help to strengthen the hair.
Hair Loss Centers
Another riding trend is to go to hair loss centers. Previously there were some stigmas on going to such centers as people were sceptical about the effectiveness. With people getting more aware on what these centers can offer, the stigmas slowly eroded. It is no longer the case whereby people only visit such centers for balding treatments. Some visit for scalp treatments to regain beautiful shinning hair.
You might to visit a doctor to assess the situation if anything can be done. Hair transplant surgery can be done and the effects are permanent lasting. But this is not the permanent solution.
There are many commercial products available. You may have heard of Provillus, one of the products that is good at inhibiting dihydrotestosterone and hence limits hair loss. It is advisable to check the label of the products to have a better understanding of what goes into the product before using.
Do you need to find a remedy to cure thinning hair? This is not just a male problem, women also are susceptible to the condition. In fact nearly as many women as men suffer from hair loss of some form. However you can cure thinning hair naturally, the last thing you need to experiment with are products that are based on chemicals that can make the condition worse.
Why do we suffer from thinning hair?
A question that has many answers. Some or all may contribute to your condition.
Here is a list of probable causes.
Stress due to an illness or surgical procedure.
Fungal infection of the scalp.
Underlying disease side effect eg: diabetes.
Inherited male-pattern baldness.
Tight twisting of the hair, such as braids or ponytail.
Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.
Certain of these problems are cured over time, for example the hair loss associated with pregnancy will stop and return to normal once the pre-pregnancy hormone levels are attained. With the tight twisting, normal hair growth will return upon cessation of the practice.
It is the other causes that have a need to cure thinning hair by other methods. It would be foolish to follow a regime of using the proprietary brands of hair loss remedies found in the marketplace today. We are referring to the commercially known “Rogaine” (minoxidil) and “Propecia” (Finasteride) and their derivatives. Both are made from manufactured chemicals and require on going application or the condition will return to its former level. So it is not recommended to use these products to cure thinning hair.
There are a variety of vitamins and supplements available at your local health store that will assist in correcting the situation. Herbs have been extensively used over the years. Saw Palmetto and Nettle Root have been known to be effective to cure thinning hair and promote re-growth. Combining these remedies with scalp massage that will invigorate the hair follicles should show an improvement in the condition.
There are certain natural herbal based products available that have shown excellent re-growth of thinning hair. The absence of any manufactured chemicals make this type of treatment to cure thinning hair an attractive proposition. Case studies of large numbers of users have been documented and hair re-growth in excess of 30% has appeared to be the normal results.
The studies found that in terms of hair re-growth, the all natural compound solution appeared to be more effective than minoxidil (Rogaine) and has no known side effects. A separate study showed that a 2% minoxidil preparation applied topically increased hair counts by about 24% after 20 weeks. The natural study showed an increase of 89% in the same time period. Because of the differences in locating the measured regions of the scalp, these results are not directly comparable, but in a population study, the separate study results showed that 34-46 out of 83 participants (48%) had no growth after 24 weeks, whereas the natural compound results show only 14 out of 98 (14%) had no growth after 20 weeks. Thus, the conclusion is that the all natural product does show results that it does cure thinning hair and that over 85% of men will respond favorably to the treatment.
