Male hair loss can be quite a distressing issue for many. While majority of men usually do not experience hair loss or baldness up to an age, but several factors can lead to untimely and unnatural hair loss; and in severe cases the condition can create large bald spots. If you too are experiencing baldness or hair loss, you can consider several medically-approved options for hair restoration. The information provided below can help.
This FDA approved substance is available in form of foam or solution and it can be applied on the scalp where you’re experiencing hair thinning or baldness. Minoxidil stimulates hair growth and also slows down the process of hair fall. In some cases, it may even stop hair fall. Rogaine is one of the most common products that are used by both women and men.
A number of hair restoration pills are available in market and Propecia is one of them. The FDA-approved formulation of Propecia has an active ingredient known as Finasteride. This ingredient helps in blocking DHT or dehydrotestosterone production in body. DHT is a hormone that causes hair loss.
Hair transplantation is a procedure in which hairs from the back and sides of the head are uprooted and then implanted in those areas of the head that are bald. The process is also called hair grafting. Though this process may consume a lot of time and you may also need to take two or three sittings, but once the process is completely over, you get a bald free look.
Like hair transplant, hair weaves are also a type of hair restoration technique but it does not involve any kind of surgery. A hairpiece that is fabricated using human hair or synthetic hair is placed on the head and is woven into the hair from sides and back. Weaves look like regular hair and it is possible to wash, comb and style them as well. Maintenance is the only factor that is involved with hair weaves. Also with growth of existing hair, hair weaves may get lose and therefore a need to restore hair may arise after every four weeks or so.
