It is the nature of humankind to take hair for granted unless it starts to lose them. However, late is better than never! If you are experiencing hair loss, you should certainly take measures to stop it. Stopping hair loss is a multifaceted approach. Many underlying factors can contribute towards hair loss, and you have to take care of the right factor to save your hair. Here is a systematic approach to stop hair loss and enjoy your locks for a long time.
Step 1 – Investigation
Do not guess! Investigation is very crucial to stop your hair loss. There are some reasons beyond your control, but there are many reasons that you can control. There are many medicines that can cause your hair to fall. Many hormonal diseases can also contribute towards hair loss. Some skin conditions also cause the hair to fall out. Proper diagnosis will enable you to address these causes.
There are certain things, which you cannot control: one of them is genetic hair loss. We cannot change our genes. Even if we cannot change our genes, we can be sure that our hair loss is due to genetic reasons, and not due to an easily treatable condition.
Step 2 – Care
Taking care can stop hair loss or slow it down in most cases. The most important point in taking care is the use of hair friendly hair cosmetics. Using shampoos and conditioners according to your hair type is a great step. The second most important thing is not using the wrong products. Most products have the potential to contribute towards hair fall. Some products act fast while others act slowly—without being obvious. Simple styling products like gels and mousses cause hair loss very slowly. You may not notice their harmful effects for a long time. Hair dyes have a low-medium potential to cause hair loss. There are some products that try to break down the basic structure of hair and restructure them to achieve some objective. Hair straighteners and hair perming products fall in this category. These chemicals are fast acting. They can rob your hair within few months.
Taking care is the most important step, especially if you are prone to baldness. Even if you do not have any family history of baldness, it is always better to play safe.
Step 3 – Turning to prescription medication
If you have tried the above-mentioned steps, and are still unable to stop hair loss, you can turn to prescription medication. Medication is not an ideal solution, but it can stop your hair loss in many situations. Why it is not an ideal solution? First, it takes many months to show any results. For these 6-12 months, you cannot make any opinion about their effectiveness. Second, their results are temporary. If you want to maintain your results, you have to continue their use indefinitely. Third, they may have certain side effects—discuss with your doctor first.
There is another option known as surgical hair transplant. Although it will not stop your hair loss, it can grow hair on your balding area.
