Having strong and healthy hair is an important priority for most men and women. However at various stages in life, our hair can start to thin and we lose that “full head of hair” appearance. This can be very distressing for people and very often hair loss sufferers will seek treatment in an attempt to regrow the lost hair. Fortunately there are some good options available for people to regrow their hair. The following article will look at five ways that people can consider to help get their hair back.
Today we’re going to look at five ways that you can address your hair loss. This is merely an introduction – further information about the particular treatment, as well as personal experiences, can be found using Google.
1. The Pill
One way of regrowing your hair is a 1mg prescription of finasteride – more commonly known as Propecia. It prevents the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which overtime shrinks hair follicles, causing hair to thin and fall out before the follicle dries up.
“Oral finasteride is a good treatment option for hair loss, however, a small percentage of people experience decreased libido and erectile dysfunction. If someone is concerned about those side effects, they may do better on a topical finasteride and minoxidil combination.
2. The Potion
The other option to increase hair growth is minoxidil, the generic name for Rogaine. It stimulates the blood supply to the hair follicles, which in turn strengthens the hair shaft and builds the follicle. It’s applied as a topical solution or foam twice daily. Nearly every doctor you consult will advise combination of finasteride + minoxidil to optimize your results.
3. The Plasma
In the last five years or so, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has grown enormously in popularity. Treatment involves extracting one’s own blood, separating the plasma in a centrifuge machine for10 minutes then injecting that plasma into the patient’s scalp where the hair is thinning. The plasma has active growth factors that stimulate inactive or weakened follicles. Some people use PRP in conjunction with finasteride, minoxidil or both.
4. The Secret Herbs
For more than twenty five years, Australian Hair and Scalp Clinics have been helping people regrow their hair – or at least keep it through their Herbal Follicular Activation (HFA) treatment. Being an all-natural hair treatment, there are no side-effects unlike with pharmaceutical approaches. HFA strengthens existing hair, balances scalp PH, clears excess oil and dead skin, repairs scalp damage, increases blood flow, provides an anti-inflammatory effect, reactivates dormant hair follicles and counters cells that disturbs follicle growth. The Australian Hair and Scalp Clinic have had many satisfied customers.
5. The Procedure
If those patches do not seem to be shrinking in size, it might be time to consider a hair transplant. This should really be a final resort, since results vary drastically. Some transplants look very natural but others can look odd. But if you’re determined to regrow your hair, talk to your doctor about the best options available, and ask for his or her recommendation on the which hair transplant clinic to attend.
Therefore, as you can see, there are some effective and convenient ways to regrow your hair thanks to advances in science and technology. There are medicines that can be taken orally and products that can be applied topically to the scalp. We suggest making a choice and committing to it for the recommended time before trying another treatment option.
Best of luck in your search for a healthier, fuller head of hair!
