Although hair loss isn’t usually a cause for concern, it can be difficult for many people to come to terms with and can be upsetting. There is a range of hair loss treatment available that can help, it’s all about finding the treatment that suits you. It’s normal for us to lose between 50-100 hairs a day, most of the time without us even noticing. But, in some cases, hair loss is more significantly noticeable and be a sign of a permanent condition. One form of hair loss is male and female pattern baldness, this condition usually runs in the family but there are other conditions that can cause hair loss such as stress, weight loss, iron deficiency and more. It is important to get a professional medical opinion to determine what type of hair loss you are experiencing, from here you will be given the relevant treatment options to suit. There are a number of instances where hair loss is only temporary and it does regrow, but for those that are dealing with the first signs of permanent hair loss, you can use the help of certain treatments. Hair boosting shampoo has proven helpful for some, although it will not stop or slow hair loss, it can stimulate the hair follicles which can make hair appear thicker, however, this is known more to be a temporary fix and does not directly treat or prevent hair loss. Hair loss supplements are also a popular choice for many as you can buy these over the counter in a lot of cases. Once again, depending on the type or hair loss/issue you are experiencing, this will determine whether hair supplements are likely to benefit you. Likewise with the shampoo, these types of supplements will not treat or prevent hair loss, but it can make your hair stronger and healthier so long as you consistently take the supplements. In more severe cases, prescription treatment can be helpful such as Finasteride. This treatment should be used by men and was the first prescription oral drug approved by the Food and Drug administration to treat hair loss in men. This drug does only work when it is taken continuously and consistently, meaning the effects will wear off within 6-9 months if the medication is not used. For this type of medication, it is most effective if it is taken when the thinning or balding of hair begins to show. It is important to note that if baldness has already occurred, this type of medication will have little to no effect.
