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.

Hair 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 hair loss condition will be the same though. Hair loss can be the result of stress, hormones, diet, illness, medication and chemotherapy, even 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.

Effectively Treat & Manage Hair Loss

One of the most important things you can do to effectively treat hair loss is that you act as soon as possible. The faster you start treating the causes of the hair loss, the more chance you have of retaining your existing hair and growing back what you have lost. Hair loss sufferers who wait until they have lost most of their hair could struggle to regrow their hair and, where hair follicles have completely died, hair regrowth may not be an option.The key to success in preventing hair loss is to stick to a hair treatment programme, even after you have slowed down your hair loss and started to regrow hair, you should continue with a maintenance routine.

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 your hair back on track.

In the 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.
