How to treat hair loss with hair loss products.


Treating Hair Loss: Setting the Story Straight

When you research how to treat hair loss, it can be confusing to sort through the information.

If you've suffered from hair loss, you know finding a treatment isn't easy. There's a lot of misinformation out there.

Today, you'll find out all the answers to your most probing questions.

Why is my hair thinning?

If your hair has begun to gradually thin, it might be a temporary concern.

Your hair could thin due to:

  • Medication
  • Medical conditions
  • Damage to hair
  • Stress
  • Age/hormonal changes

For these issues, the hair loss is most likely temporary. Once you isolate and fix the problem, your hair should grow back.

However, if male or female pattern baldness runs in your family and you notice your hair starting to thin, you'll want to see a hair loss specialist and begin treatments.

Do hair loss products work?

Some products really do help thicken and regrow hair.

However, those that work, only do so temporarily. The products will only work so long as you are using them. If you stop, your hair will begin to thin again.

With Rogaine, for example, it can stimulate and support hair growth. However, it is not a cure for baldness. It is most effective if your hair has just started to thin. Also, it only works for certain types of hair loss and does not affect a receding hair line.

When you're looking at different products to use, ask a doctor which one will work best for you.

Finding the perfect hair loss treatment doesn't have to be confusing.

How do hair products work?

Unfortunately, it's hard to understand why certain hair products are more effective.

With products like Rogaine, it's believed that it works by partially enlarging the hair follicles to elongate the hair growth phase. By increasing the number of hair follicles, more hair will grow.

Some products take a different approach and aim to cleanse your hair of toxins that are inhibiting hair growth. Others try to increase hair strength, reduce inflammation of the hair follicles, or block the hormonal activity that causes hair thinning.

Before you start using a product, it's important to understand which approach it's taking. Not all hair loss products will work on you because it may not be treating the underlying issue.

No matter which approach the product uses, no product can stop your hair loss dead in its tracks.

Treat Your Hair Loss

Remedying hair loss doesn't have to be an ordeal.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) hair restoration treatment is an excellent option for hair growth, no matter the cause. PRP will improve your hair density without surgery or any side effects. A simple injection of your platelets into the scalp is all it takes.

PRP will help increase hair density because it:

  • Decreases hair loss
  • Increases hair thickness
  • Triggers and maintains the hair growth phase
