It’s absolutely normal to lose hair regularly. In fact, Gary Goldenberg of Goldenberg Dermatology in New York City, says, that losing as many as 100 strands a day is normally standard. If you're losing more than that, though, you are probably looking for the best hair loss treatments.
He says, “The most common cause for hair loss is genetics.” Also known as androgenic, hair loss is extremely common and can start in your 20s. Some other causes are, lack of vitamins, medications, recent surgery, stress, weight loss and hormonal changes.
Some of the best hair loss treatments include:
Goldenberg explains that Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, treatments work “with the power of your own body to help your hair to grow and support hair health”. Blood is drawn and the PRP from the blood, is injected into the area of the scalp that needs help. This treatment provides support for hair already present and encourages those around your hair follicles to grow. Increased circulation provides your hair with more nutrition and oxygen needed for growth. This might be one of the best hair loss treatments out there.
Theradome is a light device that you wear at least twice weekly for about 20 minutes at a time. It stimulates the hair to grow by pumping nutrition and oxygen into the scalp.
Rogaine is a topical solution that blocks the testosterone that causes hair loss. Recommended by Goldenberg, you can use this treatment once a day. Look for it in the hair care aisle of your favorite drugstore.
Many women can not absorb vitamin B from their diet, so injections of vitamin B complex are the best way to receive the nutrient, which plays a role in healthy hair growth.
Biotin, zinc and copper supplements can help to improve your hair quality and growth. They can be taken orally or injected. Just be sure to talk them over with your doctor first.
Don’t forget to eat a well-balanced diet that includes plenty of lean protein, fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy foods. Limit the amount of chemicals and heat that you expose your hair to as well.
