Hair Loss Treatment - Two Proven Ways To Stop Hair Loss

Monday, 23 January 2012

Hair loss is a very common problem nowadays. Although many people think that only men are vulnerable to hair loss, the fact is that women can also suffer from this problem. In this article I will write about the most common causes of hair fall and some popular ways of treatment.


There are many various causes of the condition, however, androgenetic alopecia causes hair loss problems in more than 70% of people. Both men and women can suffer from it. If you have androgenetic alopecia, your hair will not fall off instantly. First, it will become much thinner and only then you will notice that your hairline is receding. Poor nutrition, hormonal changes and some medications as well as forms of medical treatment can also provoke the condition.

Women and teenage girls can notice hair fall during hormonal changes. For example many women can experience this problem during pregnancy. If you one of them - do not worry because, in most cases, your hair will grow back and be normal again after your child is born and hormonal balance in your body is restored.

The Most Popular Treatments

If you are already bald, the most effective way for you is to use surgery. It is expensive, however, you the results are almost instant. I am talking about hair transplant. Your surgeon will move your hair follicles from one part of your body to balding area. It is called Follicular Unit Transplantation or simply FUT. I will not discuss this type of hair loss treatment here but if you are really interested in it, EzineArticles has many great articles around the topic.

If your hair loss is not yet very serious, the best solution for you would be to use minoxidil. This is the only FDA approved topical solution that is clinically tested and is proven to be really effective. Men should use products that contain 5% of minoxidil and women should use products that contain 2% of minoxidil. Personally, when I suffered from excessive hair fall, minoxidil really helped me and I noticed results in two months, however, my scalp was always itching and I had dandruff. These two side effects of minoxidil really annoyed me.

While various topical solutions fight only with the results of the problem, it is also very important to fight with initial causes. You should consume more vitamins, iron and other supplements that are responsible for healthy hair.

4 Secrets That Will Help You to Have Healthy, Full, Beautiful Hair

Tuesday, 3 January 2012

Many people have heard the saying that a woman's hair is her glory. Is the same true when your hair is frizzy, limp, and dry? I think that many of us would feel like our hair looks less than glorious when it is in this state.

There are 4 simple things that we all can do to help enhance the health and appearance of our hair. All you have to do is to try them out, and benefit from the results.

4 Secrets For Healthy Hair

· Sleep on a Silk or Satin Pillowcase
· Give Yourself Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatments
· Drink Water
· Juice Fruits & Veggies

Satin or Silk Pillowcase

This is a very important tip if you have curly or African American hair. Traditional cotton pillowcases dry out the hair by absorbing most of the moisture that may be present in the hair.
So, stop letting your pillowcase steal from your hair. Switch it out with a nice satin or silk pillowcase. Your hair will thank you for saving it from unnecessary thirst.

Deep Conditioning Treatment

With the crazy and hectic schedules that many people are facing today it is hard to do something as simple as cook a great meal. Don't mention a 30-45 minute deep conditioning treatment for their hair. But, if you want soft supple luscious hair you need to condition your hair on a weekly basis.

Find a great deep conditioner. After shampooing apply the deep conditioner, then apply a conditioning cap, and sit under the dryer for 30 to 40 minutes, then rinse.

If you do not have conditioner on hand, then you can simply mash up an avocado and mix in some olive oil and apply to your hair giving special attention to the ends. Apply a conditioning cap, and keep on for an hour if you do not have a dryer. Rinse and style regularly.

The avocado will restore the moisture in your hair and the oil will provide shine.

Drink Water
It is so easy to get caught up throughout the day drinking coffee, sugary juices, and sodas. I know because I am a sugar lover.

On the other hand, no matter how much of these sugary liquids you consume nothing will ever compare to the cleansing, healing, and nourishing power of water. Not only does water hydrate your body, it will work absolute wonders for your skin and hair. So drink up.

Juicing Fruits & Veggies

Fruits and vegetables are full of the essential vitamins that are necessary to grow your hair long, healthy, and strong. However, who can fit 10 to 20 of these babies in with their daily meals?

The people who juice are able to fit these all in with ease. Some people use three to four fruits and veggies in the form of 3 glasses per day. Or if you are bold you can put in as many as you like. I suggest that you combine complementary produce for taste.

By juicing your body will be super charged and energized. Your body will be nourished from the inside out, and your hair will thrive.

Now that you know the 4 secrets that will help you grow and maintain great hair.
