What To Do About Your Hair Loss

Aug 17, 2007
Many people suffer from or worry about hair loss. In fact, almost two-thirds of men will experience this at some point in their lives. However, one has to realize that it is a natural occurrence to everyone and usually is not a cause for alarm. Your hair falls out daily and then grows again as part of its natural growth cycle.

It is a cause for alarm, however, when the hair loss is more severe and does not seem to be growing back. In this case, it is time to go see a doctor to try and find a solution. However, realize that though some hair loss treatments may work for some, they may not work for others, and in fact there is no real guarantee that any of these treatments will work.

There are many reasons for hair loss -- it may be certain medications, illness, or hormone imbalance in your body. You can start off by trying some natural remedies, supplements or shampoo. But with severe hair loss, it is probably a good idea to go see a doctor and get medication. There are several medications that can help stop or slow your loss such as Rogaine or its generic name Minoxidil, which is an over-the-counter topical medication that seems to be quite effective. It is applied to the scalp and massaged in, but it may take up to six months to see any positive results. Another popular drug is Propecia or generic name Finasteride, and is available only by prescription. It is in pill form and has to be orally taken, and again, takes up to six months for any results to show.

Other than trying medications, you can also try restyling your hair to make your baldness less obvious. For example, men with baldness on top of their head can comb the remaining hair on either side over the top to cover the bald patch.

If the bald patch is too obvious, then probably something more concealing may work better, such as a wig or toupee. Wigs or toupees nowadays are much better made than those years ago. Wigs today are also less obvious as they can be made with human or good quality artificial hair.

If you are experiencing hair loss, then time is of essence. You should seek the help of a doctor right away. There are plenty of treatment options that will help stop your hair loss and allow it to grow back again.
