Effective Thinning Hair Remedies

Updated on August 1, 2010

Hair loss is a serious problem and researching thinning hair remedies is bound to give you the most effective method for dealing with this problem. There are a lot of options when it comes to remedies for hair loss with all of them clamoring to be the best; you need to have a criteria which will separate the best from the rest.

For a safe and relatively cheap method people go for covering of the condition and not necessarily treating it as hair loss only affects how you look and does not affect the body. This is a good option for those who do not like visiting the doctor and do not like taking drugs as all they have to do is pick up a hairpiece and cover their head and they have their normal look back. Using this method does not take care of the problem as one still has to wear the hairpiece whenever they are going out. When the hair has just started thinning out one can also style their hair in such a way as to cover the area where hair loss is occurring and a lot of people will not notice this but as time goes on a new and effective solution has to be found.

Another method for treating hair loss is by the use of hair transplant. Hair is taken from one part of the head to the area where there is hair loss. Unfortunately this method has not been developed to the point where one person can donate to another, a person must donate to themselves the exception being twins. For this method to work the pattern baldness must be at a level where it is still not progressing as the transplant is meant to be a one off process and not a repetitive process as such. Hair transplant has been found to be only effective in male patients and not in females, great care should be taken when one has decided to use this method as some of the practitioners professing to specialists are not really qualified for the job. It is a good idea to ask for references especially from former patients if they had successful results and check their reputation as well.

Finally there are the two drugs approved by the FDA for the treatment of hair loss which are Finasteride and Propecia. Both of these drugs were discovered while treating other conditions and there were the pleasant side effects of hair growth which naturally led the doctors to adapt these for the treatment of hair loss. Finasteride was the earlier drug to be discovered but of late has been overtaken by Propecia since it is more effective than Finasteride. These drugs have been clinically proven to stop hair loss and in some cases hair growth is reported so much so that the claims that you see of hair growth are not false only that they may not be true for all cases and one has to actually try for themselves to see if it works for them.
