It's natural to want to toss a long, thick mane over your shoulder and strut the latest hairstyle every day. Celebrities do it -- why can't every glam girl? Unfortunately, hair loss leaves many gals feeling less confident and less eager to strut the glamorous lifestyle. Don't stay in the shadows. Manage hair loss with treatments to energize your hair, your style and your confidence.
Investigate the cause of your hair loss. Hair thinning and loss may be a result of medication, health conditions or even styling techniques. Be in the know so you can regrow those lovely locks. Discuss your medical history with a physician and evaluate your styling techniques with a professional stylist to get you on the track to tricked out tresses.
Diversify your diet to manage hair loss. Vitamins A, B, C, D and E can energize growth and provide your body with much-needed nutrients. Herbal and vitamin supplements can also combat the effects of aging, stress and poor diet that lead to hair loss. Naturally intensify your hair's beauty.
Apply hair loss topical cream to your scalp. Minioxidil, an FDA-approved topical cream can jump start hair growth and jump start your new sense of style. Apply the cream to your scalp twice a day or as directed by your dermatologist or physician. New hair growth typically appears within three to six months.
Treat hair loss with prescription medication. In some cases, prescription drugs, such as Proscar and Propecia can restore hair growth up to 75 percent. Energize your hair and your confidence by discussing oral medications to stimulate hair growth with your physician.
Light up new hair growth with laser treatments. Glide a prescribed laser over your scalp three times a week for 10 to 15 minutes. Dermatologists report that some patients experience 25 percent new hair growth with laser light treatment, according to "Oprah" magazine.
Consider a hair transplant. If your hair loss is severe, a surgical transplant of hair follicles may be the best option. Consult with your physician to discuss this procedure.
Create the illusion of thick, lovely locks with simple styling techniques. Opt for shorter, blunt cuts to add more volume to thinning hair. While styling doesn't restore your hair, it can help maximize the appearance of your tired tresses.
Investigate the side effects of topical creams and prescription hair loss medication. If you have a pre-existing medical condition, consult with your physician before treatment.
