Finding the Best Hairloss Treatment For You

There are literally hundreds of hair loss treatments available in stores and online that are intended for all types of hair loss. Finding a hair loss solution is easy, although choosing the right one for you and your particular type of hair loss is the confusing part.

Hair loss treatments are often featured on TV shows, and the hair-challenged tend to rush right out and buy them. This is a mistake, because many of these hair replacement systems simply won’t work, and it’s important to choose the right one for your particular problem. Before spending your money, it’s important to ask yourself these two questions:

  1. What type of hair loss do I have?
  2. What types of treatments are available for my type of hair loss?

Treating your particular type of hair loss type with a product made for another type hair loss type will be a waste of time and money. You need to have a qualified doctor properly diagnose the type of hair loss you have. A dermatologist and your family doctor could probably diagnose the problem. Best of all his having a trichologist on your team. A trichologist is a physician who deals specifically with hair loss issues.

Learning about the best treatments for hair loss?

The most common type of hair loss is called Male Pattern Baldness, a condition that affects over 85% of men to some degree. It’s best to treat MPB is as soon as it appears; sometimes it shows up as early as the late teen years or early 20′s. Treating MPB in the early stages gives you a better chance of halting it or severely slowing it down for several years. Early intervention could even mean stopping male pattern baldness permanently.

The most common treatments for MPB are rogaine (minoxidil) and Propecia (Finasteride) or Avodart (Propecia V2.0). The Propecia/Avodart reduces the level of DHT in the scalp, while rogaine restarts the hair regrowth process. The final option for late stage MPB is hair transplant surgery, which has vastly improved over older hair transplants you may be familiar with. People have been seeing great results, making these worth checking out.

Hair loss is also a major issue for some women, and there are several treatments available for them. Most women won’t even talk about their hair loss, and try to keep it a secret. This is a mistake because women have many options available to deal with their hair loss. Same as men, women need to have the cause of their hair loss determined by a physician. Women are prone to suffering from hormone-related hair loss problems, stress-related hair loss and various forms of alopecia, including areata and sometimes even male pattern baldness.

The most common treatments for female hair loss are rogaine for Women, steroid injections, HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) and possibly spironolactone and other oral medications. Again, the treatment depends on the type of hair loss diagnosed by a qualified doctor or trichologist.
