Hair Restoration – Various Methods of Hair Restoration

Losing your hair no matter what the cause is can be devastating to the individual. There is a variety of treatments and methods to restore the growth of natural hair. People will try almost anything to cover up their hair loss. Let’s take a look at some methods of hair restoration that fall into three basic groups: pharmaceutical, surgical, and other methods.

Surgical Hair Restoration

Hair transplants are done by surgery and are often painful and expensive. Hair transplantation is done by taking live and growing hair from one area of the head to the area where your hair is thinning or is lost. This is usually a permanent solution and it uses your own hair. The entire hair and hair follicles are removed and put in the necessary spots.

Pharmaceutical Hair Restoration

Propecia (finasteride) may help some men to re-grow hair. There are side effects including sexual side effects, reduced sex drive, erectile dysfunction. These effects subsided when treatment with Propecia was stopped.

Rogaine (minoxidil) is used for hair restoration in cases where the cause is age or hormonal. It can work for both men and women. Results will take some time to be noted. If results are not seen in about 12 months, it is highly likely that you will not get any results.

Injectable or light topical steroids are particularly used to treat Alopecia Areata. This occurs when bald patches appear on the scalp, eyebrows, and beard. The lashes may fall out as well. It is believed that this may be due to an immune disorder.

Natural Supplements

Natural supplements even though they are most often sold over the counter are still considered a pharmaceutical. Natural supplements include vitamins, minerals, and other things such as amino acids and botanicals that benefit overall human health.

Hair restoration can be treated with natural supplements. Many of the vitamins, minerals, and other ingredients can be taken with benefits but when put together in a specific formula they can have a much greater effect. One natural supplement includes Biotin and vitamin B6; both are B complex, water soluble vitamins. Being water soluble, it means that the body does not store them they are eliminated in urine.

Minerals such as zinc and magnesium are known to benefit energy metabolism, bone structure and hair health. They help cell division which is very important in hair restoration. It also benefits hair density and growth.

Herbs that aid hair restoration include Horsetail, pumpkin (extracted oil from seeds), and Saw Palmetto. These are effective and work on proteins and decreasing substances in the body related to hair loss. They are safe with very little side effects.

Miscellaneous Hair Restoration Methods

There is a spray that be sprayed over thinning areas that makes it look like hair but it isn’t. There are shampoos, lotions, and scalp massagers that claim to aid hair restoration. There are new treatments coming out all the time. Some are legit some are scams. The safest thing to do is to talk to your doctor and get his/her opinion. A relatively inexpensive way to deal with your balding is to wear wigs, weaves, or hair extensions
