Hair Loss is generally associated with old age but it can affect young men and even teenagers as well. Since a hair loss in teens is generally unexpected, losing hair comes more of a shock for the young men aging between 15 and 20. The very first sign of hair loss at a young age is thinning in the temporal areas of the frontal hairline, just above the eyebrows.
If you believe your forehead is becoming high and high as months pass by, there is a high probability that you are suffering from teenage hair loss. However, you don’t need to worry about the problem, as gone are the days when hair loss was incurable and irreversible. There are numerous cures for hair loss at a young age, from topical and oral medications to cosmetic camouflages to hair transplant surgery.
While a Hair Transplant Surgery comprises the only permanent and guaranteed solution for hair loss, it should always be the last resort for hair loss at a young age. Since hair loss at a young age is progressive, one should not go for it until and unless the hair loss has matured. Getting a hair transplant at a young age – 25 and below – could be the beginning of an expensive, lifelong journey of surgeries. So, if you have just started losing hair and are expecting the hair loss to progress in the future, go for some non-surgical hair loss solution.
There are numerous non-invasive, really effective hair loss solutions that you can try to fix the problem of hair thinning, especially if you are experiencing the problem at quite a young age. Some of them are listed below:
Walk into any store and you will be bombarded with legions of hair loss control shampoos, conditioners, and serums. Lots of topical applications are also sold over the counter for fighting hair thinning. One really effective topical application for hair loss is Minoxidil. Apply this regularly for a couple of months to see results.
There are various oral medications as well that have shown significant results in controlling and even reversing symptoms of hair thinning. Finasteride is probably the most effective prescription oral pill which, on regular consumption, has shown hair regrowth in more than 50% cases. Discuss with your doctor if this can be an option for you.
Though these medications are quite effective in preventing and reversing hair loss, like any other drug, they also have some side effects. If you don’t want to bear the unwanted consequences associated with topical and oral drugs, you can always fake a thicker and denser look with cosmetic camouflage products, like wigs, hairpieces, extensions, and toupees.
Wait for your hair loss to mature and only after that go for a hair transplant surgery.
