Hair loss seems to be more common in men than women, but it can happen to either gender and can be just as traumatic for both sexes. There are various reasons why people tend to lose their hair. Some of these reasons mean that the loss will be temporary, while others are more lasting. The good news is there are treatments for women, for men including new products and laser procedures. The reasons for losing your hair may include:

  • Major surgery
  • Chemotherapy
  • Hormonal problems
  • Certain medicines
  • Diabetes
  • Improper care of the scalp
  • Male – pattern baldness

Remedies for baldness and thinning hair

Hair loss remedies are in big demand for men and women who are losing their hair or have thinning hair. Genetics results have found that with male pattern baldness, the gene comes from the mother. If your mother’s father was bald, then there is a good chance that you will lose your hair. However, there are ways to stop this and to even regrow some of your hair.

Some medicines can slow the balding with products such things as Rogaine. This product is a solution that you rub into the scalp and is suitable for women and men. Another product, Propecia, comes in pill form. It is also available with a prescription but is only suitable for men. A natural hair loss remedy that has seen results is the herb, Saw Palmetto. This product will help hair to regrow and even turn to its normal color, but it is not a suitable treatment for women because hair will grow on other parts of the body as well.

Hair loss remedy treatments

Many people visit treatment centers to have hair transplants done to help them have hair on their head. This is an expensive procedure where hair follicles are taken from one part of the head and set into the area where the hair is gone. Others have wigs made so that they have the appearance of having a full head of hair. The latest in the offer is hair tattoo, or scalp micro pigmentation, (or SMP for short) offered by Hair Ink SMP Gold Coast.

You can buy all kinds of shampoos and conditioners that are designed to help you with your hair loss problem. There is even laser treatment on the market called the laser comb. This is designed to focus on the hair follicles in the scalp and revitalize them so that hair will start to grow again.
