Hair Loss Treatments
It is estimated that over 50% of men and nearly 20% of women will experience hair loss in their lifetime. If it does not affect us directly,
it will affect someone we love. Some people believe in letting nature take its course, and others prefer to try to correct the problem as soon as
they notice their thinning hair. There are a variety of hair growth products on the market that can stop hair loss or even stimulate hair growth.
You must decide what is the best hair loss treatment for you.
The first step in determining the best hair growth treatment is to visit a doctor who will be able to guide you through the best method. The
most common forms are FDA approved medications, which include Rogaine and Propecia.
Rogaine is a topical liquid that is applied to the scalp twice a day. Propecia is a once a day pill taken orally. Both products help to stop
hair loss, and some even find that they reverse loss and stimulate hair growth. While each product was designed to use individually, some
people use them both simultaneously. Your doctor will be able to prescribe what will work best for you.
Other hair loss treatments include cosmetics that mask the hair loss areas, and make the hair appear thicker and darker. Some men prefer
hairpieces, while women prefer wigs to cover their hair loss. The only truly permanent treatment is hair replacement or hair transplantation,
which can be very costly.
