Hair loss is a natural process. It is only when the hair you lose fails to grow back or the hair you have weakens down to the roots that it becomes problematic. Correction, the word problematic is a gross understatement as anyone struggling with hair loss would agree; It can be quite devastating.
Hair Loss Prevention Options
As a hair loss treatment center in Delaware that offers hair loss solutions to both men and women, something we tell a lot of our clients is that prevention is always better than all-out treatment. At the same time, we fully understand that pattern hair loss or androgenic alopecia, as well as other forms of alopecia, can sometimes be unavoidable.
Still, if you’re struggling with hair loss, here are a few things you could try out if you haven’t already.
Many experts feel that it is our lifestyles that play a massive part in the manifestation of pattern hair loss. According to research, where genetic factors do leave individuals predisposed to pattern hair loss, lifestyle factors such as high-stress levels also contribute.
If you’ve suddenly started losing more hair than you used to and you feel it’s beginning to show, see if there is any room for improvement in the life you live. Maybe cut back on what you’re stressing about, learn to place boundaries and say no to people, try not to take on too much.
If you suffer from something like high functioning anxiety, therapy can be helpful. Finally, look into getting some exercise and cut back on things like alcohol, smoking, and other unhealthy activity.
Another thing that can sometimes be helpful when dealing with pattern hair loss is nutrition. You can nourish your hair and scalp using internal as well as external methods. Internal methods would include increasing the uptake of certain vitamins in your diet. Vitamins that strengthen your hair include vitamins A, B, C, D and E. Other than that, iron and zinc are minerals that contribute to hair strength and follicle longevity. Finally, protein is what your hair is made of in a sense and is highly essential.
You can integrate these nutrients into an organic health plan or look into hair supplements that are combinations of the nutrients mentioned above.
External Nutrition and Organic Remedies
Surprisingly enough, despite advancements in the area of allopathic treatment, sometimes the best remedies really are organic. When it comes to addressing thinning hair and early stages of pattern hair loss in both men and women, certain organic remedies can really help slow things down.
The use of natural oil is one popular method which finds its roots in eastern medicine and the study of herbs. Other herbal remedies that may help include the application of egg-white or egg-mask, Aloe Vera and coconut milk. You may sometimes need to try different remedies or combinations before you find one that works. That said, if you do find one that works, such remedies can be quite effective; sometimes even more so than chemical methods!
As we mentioned earlier, we don’t take hair loss or the challenge of those suffering from it lightly. We also understand that there are times when regardless of what you try, it does not seem to help with the hair loss. If you’re at this stage but not quite too keen on a full on hair transplant just yet, scalp micropigmentation can be a brilliant option.
We’re not just saying this because it’s our specialty. We’re saying this because the treatment is safe, minimally intrusive and guarantees almost immediate results. Scalp micropigmentation works via the application of pigment into the skin on the scalp. This pigmentation makes hair in areas where it is thinning, look fuller or denser.
The procedure also helps strengthen surviving hair and hair follicles and is a brilliant solution, regardless of whether it is pattern baldness or another form of alopecia that you are struggling with.
Losing your hair is quite terrifying and we know this well but it’s not the end of anything. See if prevention works. If it doesn’t you have many ways to address the problem!
