When you are on the verge of losing hair, hair regrowth products seem like a great idea. This article will help you choose the best products for hair regrowth.
There are innumerable products in the market for hair regrowth. Though many of them claim to regrow hair, some of them are not effective. Many among these assure to multiply hair or grow new follicles. Instead of being gullible, we need to understand how this stuff works. These products stimulate hair follicles, which in turn helps to regrow your hair. To validate their tall claims, one must check if it is actually increasing the thickness of your hair or increasing hair growth.
According to FDA, Minoxidil is a topical cream mostly effective on the areas that have lately turned bald. But the sad news is that FDA has banned such creams that affirm to cure baldness. The only ones they refrain from banning are the ones they approve themselves, or the ones, which contain natural ingredients. Therefore, when you are looking for products, make sure that they exactly meet all your requirements, as all of them do not work on all kinds of hair fall. Also, there are different hair treatments available for regrowing hair, according to the type of hair and hair fall.
It has specially designed fibers in the form of spray that exactly match your hair color, and thus make your hair look thicker.
It is a product that uses the FDA-approved hair loss ingredient Minoxidil in its two-step hair loss treatment, and it also is an oral supplement.
It is a hair loss shampoo that has a natural approach to hair growth, but it has no clinically tested or FDA approved ingredients. However, it has a decent success rate and can be used to help regrowth of hair due to its natural ingredients.
It acts similar to Provillus by blocking DHT to promote the chances of hair growth. But again, it does not use FDA approved ingredients. It has, however, found to have a good success rate and mixed reviews.
It is a chemical blocker for DHT, which stops it from invading the hair follicles.
If you find that the DHT hormone is responsible for shrinking of the hair follicles when hair stops growing in that area, the DHT blocker might be required, which stops this hormone from invading your hair follicles. DHT blockers can be of two types – natural or chemical. Palmetto, a natural blocker has been successful to a large extent. Propecia is considered most reliable and trustworthy. On the other hand, it has also been responsible for libido loss in few men. But it can be of no use for those, whose reason for hair loss is not DHT hormone.
Hair loss treatments are not miraculous. But yes, you can get positive results out of the products, which might increase the thickness of the hair.
Hair Regrowth for Men
When you are considering the hair regrowth products for men, an anti-androgen can be one of the options. Anti-androgen can be oral (finasteride) or topical (spironolactone). It acts as an agent to prevent certain aftermaths of male sex hormone. These agents can be added in growth stimulants like Minoxidil (Rogaine) to get better results. Other topical agent which can be used is Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), an antioxidant enzyme, to fight damages caused by the cells. Antimicrobial and growth-stimulant shampoos are few other products for men.
Hair Regrowth for Women
FDA approved products are the fastest means to regrow hair. Products containing Minoxidil are the only FDA approved topical treatments. Minoxidil should not exceed 2% in the products for women. Androgen blocker, growth stimulants, and antiinflammatories are the products that have proved to be helpful in hair regrowth.
Those who don’t want to try chemically made products can also try home remedies for hair loss. Even nature has blessed us with innumerable herbs and shrubs, which are beneficial for preventing loss of hair. Also, some changes in one’s diet and lifestyle can help in hair growth.
Now a word of caution. Before using any products like Propecia and Finasteride that are taken internally, consult a doctor so that they don’t react with other medicines. Also confirm that they do not effect your hormones. Work with your physician when you are deciding upon hair regrowth products.
