What Can I Do About Hair Loss?

Collaborative Post¦ When you first notice that you are starting to lose your hair, there are a lot of complicated emotions. Some men are resigned to it, having grown up around older relatives with very little going on up top. For others, it can be a nasty shock, and something that they get very worried about. There are two important things to remember when it comes to hair loss. The first is that it happens to a lot more people than you might think. The second is that you do have options, this is not something that you need to simply accept. Here are a few ways you can change your situation.

Look At Your Diet

If you are worried that there are more hairs in your shower drain than there should be, then you can start by looking at your diet. If you live in the UK, then it is generally held that you are not getting enough vitamin D. Vitamin D also plays a role in keeping your hair healthy. You should also think about how much iron you are getting and think about adding zinc supplements to your diet. Boosting your intake of these vitamins and minerals won’t reverse hair loss, but it could remove a contributing factor and make your hair healthier.

A Hair Transplant

You would be forgiven for thinking that a hair transplant is something that is out of your price range. However, there has been a lot of development when it comes to affordable hair transplants, and there are a couple of different options available to you. Generally speaking, it is recommended that you avoid getting a hair transplant while you are still losing your hair as this means that you may have to have a number of surgeries over time.

How does a hair transplant work? It works by transplanting healthy hair follicles from the sides and back of your scalp to the desired area. With a FUE hair transplant, the follicles are removed and transplanted individually. With a FUT hair transplant, a whole section of scalp is moved and restitched.

Prescription Medication

Prescription hair loss medication is an option for anyone who is worried about losing their hair and is still in the early stages. The most popular options are Finasteride and Propecia. These drugs can help to boost regrowth and to slow down the hormone that is commonly linked to hair loss, which is dihydrotestosterone, otherwise known as DHT. DHT attacks the hair follicles on your scalp, leaving them weaker and causing them to shrink. While you may have success with these prescription treatments, it is worth noting that there is no guarantee that they will prevent male pattern baldness. You should talk to your GP about these options if you are taking medication that causes hair loss.
