Female Hair Loss Products
There are quite specific female hair loss products which are designed to be used by women only. The main characteristic of these products is that they are not as powerful at hair regeneration as many men only designed products.
In fact many male only products are so powerful that they contain side effects warnings for women especially for pregnant women so you need to be very careful that you undertake a female hair loss treatment that is suitable and safe.
Furthermore, if you are intending to go down the conventional drugs route make sure that the drugs or at least a major component of the product is FDA approved. You should also consider that the best form of womens hair loss treatment in my honest opinion should be as natural as possible and with a compromise leaning towards a combination of natural and conventional drugs.
There are many female hair loss products which have been specially designed for women and the product manufacturers specify this. For example Provillus one of the market leaders actively markets Provillus for Men and Provillus for Women.
There are other products, for example Propecia which does have a male and female strength version however this particular conventional drug requires a doctors prescription and rightfully so as the male version is so powerful that women who come into contact with it and are pregnant are advised to wash their hands.
I’m not trying to scare you all I’m saying here is that you need to be careful and do your research and best of all see and/or talk to your doctor before taking on any form of medication.
Now, going back to what I was saying earlier. If you have decided to take hair loss products I suggest that you go down the combination route i.e. natural + conventional as baldness in women especially alopecia areata can be hard to treat with natural ingredients only.
This doesn’t mean to say that they don’t work. They do to some degree especially those products which contain Saw Palmetto, it’s just that the natural products seem to be best at both preventing further thinning of hair and preventing more hair loss but seem weak at promoting new hair growth or strand thickening.
The main reason for this is that when treating with a combination product the conventional drug component i.e. Minoxidil (An FDA approved hair restorative drug) actively attacks DHT in the follicle which is the causative compound of hair loss/thinning. The Saw Palmetto boosts the scalp and nutrient base within the hair follicle which then facilitates a much more energetic hair growth.
It is for this reason that I recommend that you go for female hair loss products which are approved and have at least some scientific basis to make them work.
