Is There A HairLoss Cure?

Author: Rob D. Hawkins

Our hair is part of who we are, and perhaps just as important, who society perceives us to be. This is particularly true as we start to get older, where balding is perceived in a negative light both by those of the opposite sex, those in our workplace, as well as those in our social circles. So finding a hairloss cure, or at the very least a solution to slow it's progression starts to become more of a priority with each new bald spot recognized.

A shortfall in the hair replacement cycle is what is causing our loss of hair. Even the smallest imbalance can cause noticeable balding over time. There are numerous causes for this imbalance including hormones, heredity, rapid weight loss, autoimmune disorders, fungal scalp infections, certain medications, diabetes, extended high fever, and physical and/or psychological stress just to name a few. Let's briefly cover a few of these.

Diet: An unbalanced diet will not only make you feel bad but cause hair loss as well. Certain proteins, minerals, and oils are vital for hair health.

Stress: Stress is perhaps the most often overlooked cause of balding. When you are under stress blood is diverted from the scalp to other areas deemed more important by the body.

Heredity: Is either mom or dad showing signs of pattern baldness? If so you may have inherited a condition known as androgenetic alopecia. This is an androgen driven form of hair loss accounting for nine out of every ten cases of balding in men and one out of every four in women. Androgenetic alopecia is the most common type of balding and a hairloss cure for this condition has yet to be found.

Fungal scalp infections: Bacterial or fungal infections can scar the scalp if left untreated. Once scarring has occurred a hairloss cure will no longer be possible. Many natural hair re-growth products contain tea tree oil which is consider to be a natural anti-fungal remedy.

Diabetes and Lupus: Certain diseases including these two can cause balding and should be eliminated from the list of possible causes before embarking on a hairloss cure program.

In summary, finding a hairloss cure is about first identifying and treating the underlying cause, allowing FDA approved treatments such as minoxidil (topical) and finasteride (oral) to achieve their expected results. While not as important as finding the underlying cause taking action early is still very important. The reason for this is that even the best hair re-growth formulas are only able to produce new growth about 30 percent of the time.

What Next? There are currently a handful of hair re-growth products (specially formulated for both men and women) which have been proven effective both in blocking harmful hormones and bringing the all important dead hair follicles back to life. These specially formulated treatments can be used both as a preventative tool, starting before hair loss becomes severe, or after loss of hair has become noticeable. Whatever the level of balding or thinning you are experiencing these products could be just what is needed to overcome this latest life challenge.
