Hair loss is a most distressing condition. Some types of hair loss are caused by stress, poor diet or medications. Eliminating stress, eating well and using drugs that do not encourage hair loss are all helpful.

Hair loss from poor nutrition or medical illness usually ends with a healthy diet and treatment of the medical condition. Treatment of fungal scalp infections requires treatment with oral medications.

But, most people with hair loss suffer from male and female pattern baldness. This condition is also called alopecia and refers to partial or total hair loss from any part of the body, especially the scalp.

This type of hair loss occurs slowly over the years. You can lose your hair in patches or in a specific pattern or it can gradually thin out. Men are more prone than women to hair loss, but alopecia can affect anyone.

This type of hair loss accounts for the majority of all hair loss in the United States (affecting the lives of 40 million men). It’s no secret that many balding men are pre-occupied with their hair loss, and associate baldness with feelings of embarrassment, self-consciousness and a negative self image.

There are a number of treatments to help reduce hair loss. Here is an overview of a few of them:

Avacor

The Avacor hair system is a three-treatment system that consists of organic herbal tablets that are taken twice daily, a “deep cleansing shampoo” and a “topical solution” that is applied next.

Prolific

Prolific is a hair loss solution that helps regenerate hair. It cleanses your hair and scalp and helps stop hair loss by blocking Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the hormone that causes it. It then stimulates new hair growth by reviving dormant hair follicles.

Propecia

Propecia is an FDA-approved pill that treats male pattern hair loss on the top of head and back mid-scalp area in men. The formula blocks the formation of DHT

Hair Transplants

Hair transplantation is the best known method of surgical hair restoration. It is the method of surgical hair restoration most often used to treat hair loss due to male pattern balding. This treatment must be carried out by a qualified surgeon.

Hair loss is a very disturbing condition to be sure, but there are treatments available, you just have to choose the right one for you.
