Hair loss has become a major problem worldwide and affected all people. It is approximated that 30% of women will have noticeable hair loss by the age of 50 and 50% of men by the age of 40. In men it commonly occurs on the crown whereas in women it can be around the parting. Pregnancy and menopause are a major cause of alopecia in women. Hair loss is reversible if it was triggered by hormone issues or health issues. Emotional and physical stress, defective immune system and lack of proper nutrition, dental treatment, certain drugs and some cosmetics could result in hair loss.
When the causes of hair thinning are withdrawn, normal hair growth recovered. The case can be harder if the cause of hair loss is genetic but still there are treatments that can help. There are several treatments appropriate for thinning hair sufferers.
The first recommended medications are minoxidil and finasteride, with proper FDA approval and a proven track record. These are the treatments that will be prescribed although they have some side effects and finasteride should not be used for women. Replacement surgery is the best way to reverse hair thinning. Since these treatments cannot be copied, it is good reason to consider them despite being a bit expensive and skilled surgeons required.
These two treatments are effective though they require some time to see the outcomes and one will need some good money. There are many companies selling products which they claim to have similar and quicker effects, but many of these don’t give proof, and they don’t have any.
The safest way of achieving significant hair thickening faster is not a cure but a cosmetic. The cosmetics consist of tiny fibers that firmly attach on each hair follicle by a charge, resulting in unseen follicles that are heavier and voluminous. These fibers hide the scalp exposed by hair loss even under bright light, wind and rain. There is no traditional scalp colorant or spray that offers this level of mimicking. Keratin fibers have gained popularity not just for the reason that they camouflage thinning but also because they are safe to use during all other forms of treatment and before and after transplant surgery. Many doctors use the keratin fibers on their patients before can begin to grow again. Keratin microfibers are easy to apply by simply shaking onto thinning areas and smoothing through, and the charge binds the fibers to the follicles. The fibers are natural as they are made of keratin which is the hair material.
