What's the Most Effective Hair Loss Treatment Method?

For many people, especially women, hair can be the bane of their life rather than their crowning glory. If bald spots are starting to show up on your head or you are dropping more than 125 single hairs per day, you're most likely a victim of hair loss.


 

However, there are many myths and misconceptions about hair loss, including some ludicrous ones that say only intellectual women experience hair loss and that you can increase circulation and stimulate growth by shaving or standing on your head. Yeah, it's totally batshit, alright.

 

Such misconceptions prevent some women from getting to the bottom of their hair loss problem and remedying it. As mentioned, the average human loses up to 100 single hairs daily. However, this is supposed to be balanced by 90% growth. Hair loss is when a person sheds more hair than can be remedied by fresh growth.

 

There are many types of hair loss, including traction alopecia (damaged hair follicles), dihydrotestosterone (DHT) telogen effluvium (resting hair follicles), androgenetic alopecia (pattern baldness due to age, menopause, and genetic factors) and anagen effluvium caused by poisoned hair follicles due to medication like chemotherapy.

 

It's always better to consult a qualified dermatologist if you are experiencing hair loss. Depending on your diagnosis and prognosis, there may be hope for your hair just yet. Basically, it's absolutely possible to stop hair loss and grow it back naturally when it's not a result of aging, disease, genetic factors, injuries, or other physical stressors. Here's a look at the best hair loss treatment solutions to consider.

 


Finasteride

Finasteride is an FDA-approved medication for enlarged prostate and pattern baldness in men. It is available under the same name or Propecia and must be prescribed by a doctor.

 

It's designed to stop the conversion of testosterone to a powerful form known as dihydrotestosterone (DHT). High DHT levels in the scalp kill hair follicles. Finasteride tablets are effective against DHT-caused hair loss, but if you stop taking them, any improvements fade. Also, consult a doctor first to determine if the medication is safe.

 

Alpecin Shampoo

This shampoo contains a caffeine complex comprising zinc, niacin, and caffeine for stronger, flourishing hair. You may use it to clean your scalp and combat the effects of DHT. It stimulates the roots, enabling natural hair growth. It's proven effective, especially against hair loss due to dandruff and niacin deficiency.


Minoxidil

Minoxidil, a.k.a rogaine, is a powerful solution for thinning hair. It's a vasodilator that widens hair follicles, increasing blood flow and stimulating hair growth. The FPHL approves Minoxidil for men and women and is available in 2% and 5% solutions or foams.

 

Women can use Minoxidil to regrow thicker hair after giving birth, hitting menopause, or experiencing patchy hair loss due to an autoimmune disease. On the other hand, men may use it to combat pattern baldness.

 

You can also try combination therapy. Take finasteride tablets, and add growth boosters like minoxidil and alpecin shampoo for optimum results. Our world-class IntelliMist Rootique device allows you to massage your scalp with healing tonics anytime.

 



Laser Growth Therapy

This FDA-approved non-surgical hair loss treatment involved using low-level lasers to activate scalp cells, increase blood flow, and repair and regenerate hair follicles. Laser growth therapy (LGT) is FDA-approved and works in over 83% of users. It's effective against telogen effluvium and androgenetic alopecia (pattern baldness).

 

Both types of hair loss involve resting hair follicles due to lifestyle-induced hormonal imbalance and age, respectively. The therapy uses wavelengths ranging from infrared to red, like our Rootique DUO 660nm device, for stimulating radiant hair growth.

 

To summarize, hair loss is an issue that affects both men and women. It can occur at any age but is common in menopausal women and those who've given birth, men over 35 years old, people undergoing chemotherapy, and individuals who practice tight hairstyles. The FDA has approved Minoxidil, finasteride, and LGT.

 

A hair transplant is another alternative, but it's expensive and may not work after all. It's always wise to try the alternative treatments first to see if you can regrow hair naturally. Use our Rootique DUO 660nm Red Light Therapy devices to form the basis for your hair loss treatment program and unleash fuller and healthier hair.
