SOLUTIONS FOR HAIR LOSS
How to Care for Your Hair
Today, there are lots of hair loss solutions available to you. Some of the options available are more effective (and safe) than others, but we break them all down below.
The primary cause of male pattern balding is dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Finasteride (brand name Propecia) is the only FDA-approved treatment available on the market that’s proven to lower DHT levels and halt/reverse hair loss in men. While it’s not effective for everyone, and results vary, for thousands of men around the world, finasteride has proved to be an invaluable part of their regimen. Before choosing this medication to aid with your hair loss, it’s important to know all/any side effects associated with this medication.
Minoxidil, better known by its brand name Rogaine, is another clinically proven treatment for hair loss that many men swear by. It works in a different way to finasteride by opening the blood vessels in the scalp and therefore allowing for better hair growth. As with any hair loss treatment, Minoxidil is most effective when used as a preventative measure rather than a way to get back a lot of hair.
PRP therapy is used in hair restoration for natural-looking results. With a thin needle, your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is injected into the scalp. Then the growth factors in your blood cells do their job and hair growth is naturally stimulated. It is an injectable treatment which uses the patient’s own blood and has proven effective for both men and women.
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is one of the most effective ways to treat the progression of hair loss today. LLLT has been found to arrest or stabilize hair loss in about 90 percent of patients, and with consistent use, has also been found to stimulate hair regrowth. The best part is that LLLT can be used along with other hair loss treatments and procedures, making it an integral part of any combination therapy regiment for the medical management of hair loss.

Use a shampoo containing ketoconazole
If you’ve done any research on hair loss, you’ve probably heard the term “Big Three.” This refers to the three treatments that are proven to be effective at tackling hair loss – finasteride, minoxidil and ketoconazole. There are many great hair-loss shampoos that contain ketoconazole, including Regenepure DR and Lipogaine Big 3.

Get a hair transplant
A lot of men see getting a hair transplant as a desperate last measure, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Modern hair transplantation techniques mean it’s possible to achieve incredibly natural-looking results now.
There are many excellent hair transplant clinics in the Toronto area, so if you live in Canada and want to find a good hair transplant clinic you shouldn’t have a problem.
Try hair fibres
Not everyone wants to go down the hair transplant/medication route. For such people, hair fibres can be an excellent way to cover up any areas where you’re thinning. Although hair fibres are purely a temporary cosmetic treatment, many men find they do an excellent job of restoring their confidence and make them feel less self-conscious about their thinning hair.

Change your diet
Although male pattern balding is primarily down to genetics, your diet also plays a role in how aggressive MPB is. The best diet for strong, healthy hair is one that contains lots of protein, vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids. Salmon and walnuts are both excellent foods to eat for healthy hair.
Regular exercise is a great way to combat stress and promote a healthy body and mind. Many people find that they don’t have the time to go to the gym but you can incorporate exercise in all parts of your life. It’s important not to overdo it and find the right balance that works well for you.
Take care of your scalp
When dealing with hair loss, it’s very easy to focus solely on your hair itself and neglect where it’s grown from. There are many excellent ways you can take care of your scalp. Scalp massages, for examples are an excellent way to improve the circulation in your scalp, which in turn promotes hair growth. There are also many excellent lotions that contain natural ingredients that you can apply to your scalp to help condition and nurture it.
Focus on improving your overall appearance
Dealing with hair loss doesn’t just mean trying to prevent it but improving your confidence in other areas of your life. Whilst losing your hair can have a negative impact on your confidence, there’s plenty you can do to get that confidence back, including getting in shape, sharpening your attire, and grooming.
Consult an expert
If you are particularly concerned about your thinning hair, it’s a great idea to consult a hair loss specialist. A specialist will be able to advise you on the best course of treatment for your particular type of hair loss. For example, if you have a receding hairline, a different approach might be recommended than for to someone who has a thinning crown.
Whatever options you decide to go with, always consult your doctor and make informed decisions.
Dr. Jones has done fantastic work for me. He corrected the work of doctors before him and Im amazed at how successful the procedure turned out. I may be old school, but I like going to any professional my age. The experience definitely matters. Im forever grateful.
