About Hair Loss

Hair specialist (examining person's head). "Well, I am sorry, Mr. Rao, but your baldness has gone too far. I am afraid the only cure is a transplant. "Don't be daft man, I'd look bloody stupid with a kidney on my head."

Hair loss is one of the common problems among all of us. All hairs are shed at the end of their growth cycle, so some degree of hair loss is normal. If you have excessive hair loss, it makes sense to first understand the possible causes. There are many possible causes of hair loss, however most hair loss is normal, and part of each person's genetic program.

The most common type of hair loss is related to both genetic and hormonal make up, and is called androgen-dependent hair loss. About 50% of children with a balding parent of either sex will themselves become bald over a period of time.

Commonly used name for this type of hair loss is male or female pattern baldness:-

Male pattern baldness: Is characterized by a receding hairline, and moderate to extensive loss of hair, especially on the crown area.

Female pattern baldness: causes an overall thinning of hair on the head, and a moderate loss of hair on the crown or at the hairline.

Baldness to a much extent is due to genetic and hormonal imbalance.Ofcourse there are treatments to it but I suppose the best would be to go for a hair transplantation.A hair transplantation using the FUT/FUE is the best and newest for hair treatment .The site will give a complete reference and cure to the baldness issue.Its therapy has a long lasting effect which is also worth it.

Losing hair is the worst problem a man can face in his life. Stressing out too much can lead to hair loss. Not taking proper care of our hair can also add to losing of hair. There are several remedies available online to deal with hair loss. i may advice to massage the scalp with Coconut oil at least once or twice a week.

Heard many testimonies that the best way to treat hair loss is by hair transplant because not all hair treatments will will depends on individual and no 100% cure guaranteed.

There are other options for natural hair loss treatments, and those include using hair regrowth shampoos and herbal vitamins that have been known to help people regrow some hair. You can look into these products to see what other users have experienced. Truthfully, the best method is normally a combination of medication, shampoo, and vitamins, to keep the hair healthy, from the inside out.
