Hair Loss Treatment Shampoo
Posted on 13 February 2012
What are some Hair Loss Treatments?
My mom has been losing hair, and she is in her late 40′s. She’s tried not washing her hair with shampoo for about two weeks and that hasn’t worked. Are there any home treatments, vitamins, or anything else for her to stop losing hair, it’s been going on for a couple of months. It was kind of sudden. I don’t think hair transplants is the solutions. I really want to help her, it has been brining her down. She eats well, exercises daily, a little stressed. Please help, thanks!
Diets rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B, silica, calcium, and iron help to reduce or prevent hair loss.
For women, hair loss usually begins at menopause. Although hair loss in females normally occurs after the age of 50 or later when it does not follow events like pregnancy, chronic illness, crash diets, and stress among others, there have been rare cases reported in which hair loss affects women as young as 15 or 16. Ultimately, though, the balding process and rate vary from person to person. Whether it is slow or rapid, the individual would usually notice the first signs of hair loss. Thinning hair on the top and sides of the scalp is the most prevalent and immediately noticeable symptom.
Factors such as a person’s activities, diet, medications, natural hormones, pregnancy and childbirth, use of birth control pills, improper hair care and certain diseases can also contribute to hair loss. The extent to which these factors affect an individual varies from one person to the next. While chemical treatments, pollution, hair-styling products and blow-drying have not been found to directly cause hair loss, they can dry and weaken hair, increasing breakage and perpetuating hair loss. A lack of good blood circulation to the scalp may also contribute to hair loss. When the hair root is well supplied with blood it is stronger and less susceptible to the shrinking effects caused by hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone). When not, the roots and follicles can weaken and eventually lead to hair falling out.
However, to precisely pinpoint the source of the hair loss, your mom should consult a medical professional, like those at Bosley Medical. These physicians are hair loss experts who can diagnose the specific cause of your case & recommend appropriate treatment options. The consults at Bosley Medical are conducted free of charge so at the very least you receive the information your mom needs to move forward in addressing her problem.
Hair loss treatment needed?
I wanted to know which shampoos and conditioners are the best for hair loss and shiny smooth hair in the USA? any good hair care products?
The cause of hair loss isn’t always easy to pin down, often it’s a combination of things that is causing it. The way you prevent it will depend on what the cause/causes may be, so understanding why it’s happening to you may be the best place to start.
One thing is for sure it’s best not to wait to do something about it. The earlier you identify the cause of the problem and address it the better your chances of curing it.
In the source box I added a couple of links on hair loss, one has the various causes and solutions and the other lists vitamins you should add to your diet to better aid in hair growth.
Could too many hair loss treatments harm the hair?
For instance, if I use Rogaine, alternate two hair growth shampoos, take a vitamin, and use a special comb, would all of those things together potentially cause hair loss as opposed to gain, or would they work against each other at all?
I beg to differ about the hair growth/hair loss shampoos. I see no reason to stop alternating the shampoos, especially if it something like Nizoral/Nioxin or Nizoral/Revita. I think the 4 things you have listed in your question are a perfect combination. The only other thing you are missing is Finasteride (prescription med), but not everyone is comfortable taking it.
