Hair loss solutions are needed by over a hundred million men and women in the United States. Some solutions needed are temporary while the person waits for a permanent solution.
Shampoos – Look for a shampoo that promises more body and thicker hair. There are a lot out there so be careful and get one that works. You might want to get recommendations from friends, doctor or your hair stylist. Beware of those shampoos that promise to re-grow hair with special nutrients. The scalp cannot absorb most of these nutrients.
Head Ware – Women have it easy in this category. For there are scarf’s and hats for women. While men are essentially limited to hats.
Wigs –Again women have a wide range of choices here. In our society, it is acceptable for women to wear a wig. While men’s toupees (wigs), are available, men are talked about behind their back, if it is determined they are wearing a toupee. In fact, even a man with a thick full head of hair may be suspected of wearing a toupee.
Hair Styling – You can ask your hair stylist to style your hair so that the thinning areas are covered. Women have it easy here because they normally lose their hair uniformly around the scalp. Men will need to be innovative to develop hairstyles to cover up their thinning hair. Several that are in use now are The Buzz and The Shag.
Cover Up Products –There are some products out there that actually do a good job of taking the hair you have and making it look like there is more and your hair is fuller. For example the product Toppik actually helps bind your hairs together to give a fuller and thicker look.
Hair Transplants – There are many different methods to transplant your hair into the balding areas. If you are looking at having this performed, make sure you do your homework. Make sure your doctor is qualified, know what the results will be, ask people who have had the procedure, etc.
Medicine – The Federal Drug Administration has approved two drugs for stopping hair loss and re-growing hair caused by male or female pattern baldness. These drugs are Minoxidil and Propecia. Minoxidil is approved for both men and women, while Propecia is approved only for men.
Conclusion –There are various methods you can use to temporary cover your hair loss while you wait for the permanent solutions. These are just a few ways to cover up and re-grow hair.
