1. Treat hereditary hair loss at its earliest stages:
By waiting and waiting to take action and not treating hair loss in the early stages, more and more hair follicles die off and once that occurs, no treatment will enable hair to regrow. Once the hair follicle is dead, it will never produce hair again … so don’t wait until it’s too late!
2. Make an informed decision as to when to treat hair loss:
Only when you are fully equipped with a good understanding of your condition and the treatment options available, will you be able to take charge, make informed decisions, and make a difference in your hair to positively impact how you feel about yourself.
The internet is an excellent resource, but it is full of both good and sometimes misleading information.
3. Realize that there are effective treatments available that can stop and in many cases help your hair to regrow:
Presently, there are three products that have FDA approval/clearance for hair growth and have been proven effective. Minoxidil is an over the counter ingredient widely available in many preparations, the prescription drug containing finesteride, and the HairMax LaserComb®, a home use laser phototherapy medical device that has been proven to re-grow hair and prevent further hair loss. Also, there are many other products that are useful when used in conjunction with these products to help potentiate their effect.
4. Visit your health care practitioner:
If you want some expert advice, then you should make an appointment with a health care practitioner for expert advice. Probably the best physician to see is a dermatologist who is an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of hair loss.
Remember, hair loss IS treatable! The best chance you have to help control your hair loss is to do something about it when you first notice hair loss is occurring.
There are options for hair loss other than a baseball cap!
