Hair Loss Remedy
An effective hair loss remedy is dependent on several factors which include the type of hair loss that the person is experiencing i.e. is it traction alopecia, androgenetic alopecia? The sex, which has a major influence. The age, obviously the older you are the more likely it is that your body is ‘wearing out’ including your hair and whether or not you have any underlying illnesses that could be causing the hair loss.
The hair loss remedy that you choose should fit your comfort zone. I’m not trying to be over complicated here just stating that many people prefer a natural herbal solution and some just want a cure no matter what. There are some folks – especially younger men who are single who will go through adverse chemical side effects just to have those extra few hairs.
Lets deal with whether the alopecia (baldness) sufferer is male or female. It makes a huge difference in two important ways. Firstly, women are easier to treat and the treatment tends to me more temporary. Secondly women’s hair loss tends to be more exclusively hormone related i.e. hair loss in women can be quite prevalent during menopause whereas male baldness is more often genetic and is often termed as androgenetic and is harder to treat and treatment is much longer in duration.
Now as far as women are concerned balding is a greater psychological and emotional problem to deal with than men as hair loss (as opposed to hair thinning) is seen as a sign of ill health as well as unattractiveness. Moreover alopecia is not seen as common amongst women and your peers are very judgmental and often hurtful. additionally when women see a man who is either bald or balding it’s accepted as being normal.
This is not to say that men do not suffer emotionally – they do but to a different extent. Men’s self perception of baldness especially when single is reflected by a reduction in their self esteem as far as virility goes. It can be looked on as a premature sign of aging. This is the reason why most men who look for a hair loss remedy are in the 35 to 45 age group. In fact research has shown that men in this age group are 4 times more likely to go for a cure than a man in his late 40′s to early 50′s.
Now the type of alopecia also differs between the sexes. Men suffer from typically androgenetic alopecia which is often referred as male pattern baldness. This alopecia can be complicated to treat as it really is influenced by the genetic makeup of the individual and the level of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) in the scalp. It’s now been established through research that DHT is the main enzyme that interferes with hair growth thus causing thinning and baldness so any effective hair loss cure must rectify that imbalance first.
There are several hair loss treatments that come to mind that are effective and have differing ingredients and drugs and these are Procerin (100% natural), Propecia (very strong and not for women and should be avoided if pregnant) and Provillus just to name a few. Most of these will provide a good remedy.
As for women a common female hair loss problem can be alopecia areata which is different from female pattern baldness in that instead of one large bald or thinning patch the areata can be several smaller bald patches usually on the top of the scalp. It can be very difficult to treat as there can be a not very obvious trigger which can be both environmental and/or emotional – a common cause is occupational stress.
The most appropriate hair loss remedy for this condition is to really try and identify the trigger cause, if there is one and deal with that i.e. reduce the stress at work and then treat the alopecia at the same time with for example Provillus for women.
Women also should take care in that the hair loss is not being caused by some other ailment or even menopause so a trip to the doctor may be the best first step and then go on from there.
