How to Manage Hair Loss

The most important thing you need to remember when seeking a solution for hair loss is that there is no cure. However there are ways around it and you can effectively manage and even reverse the effects of hair loss.

worriedmanabouthairlossa1Hair loss is a natural condition affecting 8 in 10 men and at least 4 in 10 women. Hair growth is a bodily function that is affected the same way as any other if something interrupts its function, you’re bound to notice a change. Not everyone’s condition will be the same though. Hair loss can be the result of stress, hormones, diet, illness, medication and chemotherapy or poor hair styling habits. It’s not something that can be cured and will never occur again, but the good news is that hair loss is a manageable condition.

Sometimes hair supplements can help get the vital nutrients to the hair follicles for optimum growth but if your diet is causing your hair to thin, you’ll need to give it an overhaul. Stay away from the foods that can aggravate hair loss and switch to the foods for healthy hair and learn which ones prevent hair loss.

Stress can contribute to androgenetic alopecia so take up yoga, meditation or something similar to keep your stress levels under control and ask a professional for expert styling tips to care for your hair if your styling habits are leading to hair loss.

If you suspect an underlying medical condition is contributing to your hair loss, consult your doctor and remedy the situation. Any hair loss experienced should be reversed once the main problem is dealt with but sometimes hair loss treatments can help get the hair back on track.

If your medication has hair loss as a side effect, ask your doctor about switching to alternatives. If you’re considering chemotherapy, talk to your doctor about cancer treatment options that don’t induce hair loss. If chemotherapy still is the best option for you, get in touch with a hair loss specialist that offers hair replacement systems. These days they can create a super natural looking wig and match it to your natural hair colour before its starts to fall out which will help you cope during the treatment. Keep in mind the whole time that chemotherapy-induced hair loss is rarely permanent and your hair should grow back within a year of treatment. However, if you’re hair has trouble obtaining its original lustre, hair loss treatments may help. Additionally, hair growth boosters can offer the support the proven treatments need to provide optimum results.

In majority of cases, hair loss is hereditary but even then it is manageable. Not curable, but manageable. Dihydrotestosterone is a chemical derivative of testosterone that causes hair loss in genetically predisposed men and women, but there are hair loss treatments that control the activity of this hair loss-causing bi-product. You’ll need to stay on the treatment for life but these treatments are extensively proven to work and are supported by regulatory organisations which mean they’re safe to use and they’re the best at what they’re made to do.
