Dealing with hair loss is always difficult, but there are treatments that can help you slow, stop or change the look of your hairline. There are a wide range of hair loss treatments available; some work while others are just a waste of time and money. When you are in need of a solution, you will have to choose an effective treatment, but will you take the leap or get sidetracked by useless products?
Some hair loss treatments will simply fail, but there are other treatments that can actually make you lose more hair. Before you start any treatment to reduce or restore your hairline, The Hair Loss Recovery Program suggests that you do your research before getting started. After you have all the information and know the reasons why you are losing hair and what each treatment option can do, then you will be able to make a decision that offers the best chance of a positive result.
What Causes Your Hair to Fall Out?
Hair loss can have several causes. In some instances the loss may only be temporary, such as hair loss caused by stress. In other cases, the hair loss is permanent such as that caused by genetics. Hereditary balding doesn’t have a cure, but you can treat it.
How do you Measure Hair Loss?
It is completely normal to lose hair each day, even if you are not suffering from any form of hair loss. A normal person will lose up to 100 strands of hair every day. What is not typical is to lose them all from the same area on your head. Hair loss is measured using the Norwood Scale which allows doctors to classify your loss of hair from minimal all the way to maximum. Most clinicians in the hair loss field rely on this system to grade hair loss levels. Regardless of why you are losing hair, the Norwood Scale is most commonly used to gather information for treatments.
Temporary Hair Loss Treatments
There are a lot of hair loss treatments on the market; some offer longer-term results while others are nothing more than a short fix. These can range from concoctions whipped up in a home kitchen all the way to over the counter creams or supplements that end up being ineffective.
While supplements are good for your health, they will not help you stop or reduce your hair loss. Home remedies and topical creams from the drug store are additionally a waste of time and money if they work at all. Some prescription-strength creams are mildly effective in slowing hair loss, but the results only last as long as you continue using the product.
Permanent Hair Loss Solutions
Chances are if you are treating your hair loss you will want a solution that has long term or permanent results. The best way to get total and completely permanent hair restoration is to obtain a hair transplant. Even though this may bring to mind the image of unsightly plugs and gaps, hair transplants have come a long way. The Fue hair transplant system is not only permanent, but it also offers the most natural-looking results of all hair transplant procedures.
