August is National Hair Loss Awareness Month! There is no better time for men and women who are concerned about hair loss to learn about the hair loss treatment options available to them. Here are 6 hair loss prevention tips that you can use any time.
Keep in mind, it’s when hair loss is persistent that you want to see your doctor. Your healthcare provider may be able to diagnose if your hair loss is caused by things like thyroid issues, stress, scalp infections, androgenic alopecia, or simply aging.
Take a multivitamin with specific blends for hair loss. We recommend Nutrofol.
Wash with a mild shampoo and conditioner to keep hair clean but avoid harsher formulas which may dry hair and cause it to break, leading to more hair loss. Remember to massage scalp gently when washing your hair and if possible avoid washing hair daily. We recommend SB Medical Shampoos for Men and Women.
Use gentle styling techniques and avoid hair processing when possible.
Use a laser therapy device.Low-level lasers may help improve hair density and it work by stimulating epidermal stem cells. We recommend Theradome.
Use platelet rich plasma. Injecting platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into the scalp helps stimulate growth in areas already impacted by hair loss. Blood is ran through a centrifuge to separate out the platelets and then injected into the scalp.
Use a topical hair stimulating compound. Your doctor can prescribe the best combination for you depending on the cause of your hair loss.
