Tips for Dealing with Hair Loss

Aug 17, 2007
Millions of people around the world experience unwanted hair loss. While many think of premature baldness as a predominantly male issue, women are also susceptible. If you're losing your hair, the first thing you need to do is find out why.

The majority of men who experience hair growth problems have a condition called male pattern baldness which is genetic in nature. However, other factors such as certain diseases, medications, hormonal imbalances and stress can also be to blame.

This is why it's so important to see your doctor as soon as you notice the problem. He or she can run a battery of tests to rule out any underlying medical issues that could be contributing to or even causing your hair problems.

If it is determined that your hair is falling out due to a medical problem, the good news is that the problem can often be corrected. Once you receive proper treatment your hair should grow back in.

The postpartum period for new mothers is a perfect example of this. Many women find their hair thins out after giving birth but eventually grows back in. This is due to a temporary hormonal imbalance which corrects itself in due time.

For those who experience stress related hair shedding, finding ways to effectively manage their stress or changing their lifestyle can make a big difference.

Individuals suffering from genetic baldness have several options. There are topical treatments for men and women such as Rogaine which contain minoxidil, an ingredient proven to help regrow hair.

For men, there is a prescription medication called Propecia which is used to treat male pattern baldness. If you're seeking a more natural approach, try massaging the scalp regularly with stimulating essential oils to encourage growth.

You can also try ready-made natural treatments for baldness. There are several natural treatments on the market. Many of them use natural ingredients to increase blood flow to the scalp and block DHT.

Most natural hair growth products probably aren't worth buying. The sellers usually don't give money back guarantees because they know their products don't work. If you are looking for a serious natural product then make sure they give a money back guarantee. If they don't then just move on to the next site.

Ingredients like Saw Palmetto and Nettle Root are often used in Natural treatment mixes. You can get those ingredients at a cheaper price by themselves. However, be careful. Just because they are natural doesn't mean they are safe. I haven't had any problems with natural ingredients but they do tend to cause severe problems in rare cases.

You can also camouflage thinning areas with colored creams and powders which give the appearance of thicker hair. As you can see, there are plenty of options available for dealing with hair growth problems. The key is to find the solution that works best for you.
