What if I told you that there is an alternative medicine for hair loss that you might not have heard about? Would you like to know what it is? I will give you more information about this product at the end of this article.
The first topic I want to discuss is the number one cause of hair loss for both men and women. Do you know what it is? If you guessed androgenic alopecia (pattern baldness), then you are correct.
If you are unfamiliar with androgenic alopecia, it is a form of balding that is usually hereditary. The balding occurs when your body transforms testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which attaches to hair follicles and causes them to shrink and eventually fall out.
Now that you know what the number one cause of hair loss is, let's discuss some of the well known treatments that are on the market today.
The first product I would like to discuss is probably the most popular of all products. This product is known as Rogaine, which contains the FDA approved ingredient Minoxidil. This product has been on the market for years and has helped many begin re-growing hair. The only problem that I see with this product is that if your rate of hair loss is higher than the rate of hair growth then you are fighting a losing battle.
The next product that I would like to discuss is Propecia, which is also FDA approved and uses the ingredient finasteride. It works by reducing the amount of DHT being formed in the scalp. This slows the balding process and could allow your hair to re-grow normally. The problem that I see with this product is that you need a prescription for it, and that it is only for men.
In the past we believed that hair loss was mainly a male problem, and if that was the case then Propecia would be an awesome product. But in this day and age, we are more informed and understand that loss of hair is also a women's issue as well. This issue is also more devastating for women than men. It has a dramatic effect on their self-esteem and confidence.
So now that we discussed what the benefits of these two products are, as well as what the disadvantages of these products are. We can now discuss what the alternative medicine for hair loss needs in order to worth trying.
First off it needs to be able to re-grow your hair, and why not choose the only FDA approved ingredient for re-growing hair which is Minoxidil. Next it needs to slow the balding process like finasteride, but it needs to be easily obtainable without needing a prescription. The ingredient that I believe fits this requirement is saw palmetto. This natural ingredient is known to slow the balding process.
Now it's time to start putting this information together. The alternative medicine for hair loss needs to be able to re-grow hair and slow the process of losing hair. It also needs to be easily obtained with out a prescription. The last and final thing is that it needs to be able to be used by both men and women. Of course they won't be taking the same product because men and women are different, but they need to have a formula for both men and women.
Now that you know what you are looking for in a viable alternative for hair loss, it is time to find it and begin treatment. It has been proven that the faster you begin treatment the greater your chances are of succeeding.
