Do Hair Loss Products Work?

Updated on August 15, 2009

Hair Loss Products

Have you noticed that your hair is starting to thin? Do you want your youthful hair back again? If you answered yes, then there may be good news for you. Men and women both can have problems with hair loss.  If you are one of them, then it may be possible that with the use of natural products and vitamin supplements, that you can have your thick hair restored while improving the look and feel at the same time.

Understanding Hair Growth

More and more women today complain of hair loss. Even though men seem to deal with balding more than women, the reasons why we have trouble with thinning hair can be quite different between the two. You may not be one that has to parade around with perfect hair all the time like Jennifer Aniston or Jessica Simpson, but seeing your hair go down the drain after shampooing can be quite upsetting to most women.

In order to understand the causes of hair loss, you must first understand how your hair grows in the first place.

It is said that your hair grows about one-half inch per month, while each hair has a life span of two to six years. After each hair has run is course, it then rests for a period of time before it falls out and starts the same cycle all over again with new strands.

Will You Lose Your Hair?

Even though it's not common to hear, I have heard of women as young as 15 or 16 years old that have had to deal with hair loss problems. Hair loss is usually based on your genetic back ground. If you remember your mom or dad, or even your grandparents lost their hair at a young age then you could pretty much expect the same to happen to you. Loss of certain vitamins can also have an effect on the way your hair grows. Hair loss can be cause by a number of things including:

  • Stress
  • Genetics
  • Drugs
  • Blood loss
  • Dental treatment
  • Cosmetics (allergies and harsh treatments)
  • Scarring
  • Disease
  • Surgery
  • Radiation/Chemotherapy
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Nutritional deficiencies like not enough iron or vitamin A
  • Immune system irregularities
  • Hormonal imbalance

The Best Hair Loss Products

It has been claimed that the top 5 best products available in 2009 to treat hair loss are Provillus, Proerin, Inhairit, Nisim and Propecia. Out of these 5 products, Provillus has been voted the top selling product because of the topical ingredient Minoxidil. It's also known to be safe and natural for both men and women.

Provillus- this product works by blocking the effects of DHT ( A particular hormone that is a byproduct of the hormone testosterone that is made naturally in our bodies..) At the same time the topical ingredient Minoxidil-the only proven ingredient to treat hair loss approved by the FDA is one of the main ingredient in Provillus. At the same time as blocking the effects of DHT to the hair, it provides your hair with nutrients that helps to improve hair growth.

Inhairit- Is also a DHT blocker that is used as a topical treatment. It works by slowing down the the effects of DHT on the hair follicle, and improves scalp condition by keeping it clean and allowing your hair to grow in a more natural state.

Procerin- Is also a product that works by blocking DHT but it is only used one men. The active ingredients are herbal forms of Saw Palmetto, Goru, and nettles which are all found to work naturally in blocking DHT.

As you can see, there are a lot of products that claim to help you grow your hair back.  Feel free to look more into some of these products and see if it is something that will work for you.
