Effective Treatments To Hair Loss Problem

Aug 07, 2019

Hair loss is part of the aging process. However, the rate of hair loss differs from one person to another. Then again, certain people may lose hair faster than others which indicates that they have a hair loss problem.
When your hair growth is slow and you constantly see hair falling from your scalp, it is indicating that you are experiencing hair loss problem. No need to worry though since there are a number of treatments you can go through in order to get out of this situation soon.
There are many causes behind this issue which include your genes, age, nutrition, medications, stress, and hormones. It is important to identify the cause behind your hair loss problem so you will be able to pinpoint the right treatment for it.

Treatments for your hair loss problem
Over the counter and prescription drugs
There are certain medications you can take in order to take care of your hair loss problem. One is called Finasteride, which is also known as Proscar or Propecia. This is actually a tablet that you have to take daily and you can only purchase it if you bring a prescription from your physician. Another product of choice is Minoxidil, which comes in a foam or a liquid form and you can buy it without any prescription. Minoxidil should be applied on your scalp twice in a day so it can work its magic. It is said that this over the counter drug will increase the size of the hair follicle, resulting in bigger hair strands and prevention of hair loss.

Hormonal therapy
This is a treatment for women only since a number of women experience hair loss when they have hormonal imbalance either during pregnancy or menopause. Some of the choices include progesterone creams, progesterone pills, estrogen pills, and birth control pills. To ensure you make use of the right hormone therapy, you need to consult your doctor first.

Hair transplant
FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction and FUT or Follicular Unit Transplant are two of the most sought after hair transplant therapies available today to solve hair loss problem. These procedures involve surgery. Therefore they may be hard on the pocket and can cause pain. With the FUE hair follicles on your scalp are extracted and transferred to the part where you need them, in other words on the bald part of your head. On the other hand, FUT involves removing the skin from your scalp where there is an abundant amount of hair, extracting the hair follicles from that skin, and transplanting them into certain parts of your scalp where you are getting bald.

Shampoos
There are many shampoo products you can find in the market, which are made to control hair loss. Many of these products provide moisture to create a healthier environment for your hair to grow. Aside from that, they are also loaded with vitamin E and zinc to improve the health of your scalp, thereby encouraging hair growth more. To identify the best hair loss treatment shampoos, you need to do your research and you may even want to consult your doctor about it, especially if you are allergic to certain chemicals.

Blood count
Going to a lab to check your blood work is an effective way of identifying the cause of your hair loss problem. Undergoing through the process can determine if you are anemic or whether you are deficient in some vitamins. If you find out that you are anemic, then you only have to take iron tablets and of course, eat foods that are abundant sources of it. Blood count can also tell you if you are deficient in vitamin D which can cause hair loss and if you are indeed, then there are many supplements to address it. Just consult your doctor so you can purchase the right kinds of supplements and be able to take the right dosage.
Aside from these treatments, there are home remedies that you can follow to solve your problem.
DIY natural remedies for hair loss

Coconut milk
Coconut milk is loaded with nutrients necessary for hair growth. Potassium, vitamin E and proteins are needed by your scalp to keep it healthy and enhance hair growth; and, these nutrients are found in coconut milk. All you have to do is to apply coconut milk on your scalp using your favorite hairbrush and massage your scalp after. It is best to let it stay for 15 to 20 minutes while you cover your scalp with a towel. Shampoo and rinse thoroughly afterward, and let your hair air-dry. Do this once a week to make it work.

Greek yogurt and honey
If you have Greek yogurt and honey, then you no longer have to buy expensive hair conditioners. Mixing Greek yogurt and honey is an effective conditioner for your hair since yogurt offers proteins and vitamin B5 which enhance hair growth and maintains the scalp. Moreover, honey has antibacterial properties that protect your hair from any form of damage. Just mix honey and Greek yogurt in a bowl. You can add lemon juice if you want. Once they are mixed, apply it to your scalp and leave on for 30 minutes. Wash with cold water and dry.
Aloe vera plant
Having an aloe vera plant in your garden would prove beneficial since you can use it to solve your hair loss problem. The extract of the leaf or stalk from this plant balances the ph levels on your scalp, penetrating it which will promote hair growth. Massage your scalp when you apply it and enjoy the cooling effect of the Aloe vera.

De-stress
As stress is one of the contributing factors of hair loss problem, de-stressing can greatly help in reducing the amount of hair falling from your scalp and promoting hair growth. One of the best ways to attain stress relief is to meditate. Practice yoga at your place by checking out videos about it. Aside from that, you should also listen to soothing music like binaural rhythmic sounds, so you can relax properly and go to a more meditative state.
