Which Hair Loss Treatments Actually Work?

Losing your hair can be an extremely emotional and overwhelming time, especially with so many hair loss treatments now available for men and women to choose from. Herbal remedies, shampoos, supplements, wigs and surgical hair transplants– there are more treatments today than ever before!

The question is, which hair loss treatments actually work? The truth is, the right treatment largely depends on the condition of your hair and your lifestyle.

To help you understand the difference and choose the best hair loss treatment for you, take a look at the list below:

Temporary Treatments:

1. Wigs

If you’re looking for a quick-fix solution for hair loss, a wig can be very effective. High quality, real human hair wigs are virtually undetectable when they are applied properly. One of the main benefits of using wigs is having the freedom to change your look whenever you like! However, keep in mind that wigs are not a permanent solution and you cannot shower, swim or exercise while wearing them.

2. Hair Extensions

If you have thinning hair and are looking for instantaneous results, you might also want to consider hair extensions. The best hair extensions are made from real human hair as they look, feel and move as if they are your own hair. However, your ability to wear hair extensions depends on the condition of your natural hair. Talk to a hair extensions specialist at Carla Lawson for the best advice.

There are many over the counter shampoos and conditioners that can help nourish and retain your hair while promoting growth and strength. Look for products made with natural ingredients including plant stem cells and essential oils. Formulas made with antioxidants help to rebuild your hair and reduce environmental damage. Avoid products with parabens and sulfates as they can irritate your scalp and reduce moisture.

4. Prescriptions & Medications

There are also prescription shampoos like ketoconazole which are anti-androgenetic, meaning they prevent testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT) – two hormones associated with hair loss. Prescription shampoos can target hair growth at the site of the follicle by locally interrupting the hormone cycle that causes thinning.

Other medications include minoxidil and finasteride. Minoxidil lotion is available over the counter from pharmacies but finasteride tablets are only available on prescription from your doctor.

Long-Term Treatments:

5. Surgical Hair Transplant

Hair transplant surgery is a popular hair loss solution, most commonly used for male rather than female candidates. It’s a cosmetic procedure performed under local anesthetic. Hair follicles are taken from an unaffected area of your scalp and grafted to the balding or thinning areas of your head. As a permanent remedy, hair transplants only need to be performed once, however it’s possible to experience painful complications and there’s a chance that it may not work.

6. Non-Surgical Hair Replacement

The CNC System is a non-surgical, non-invasive hair replacement alternative. Unlike a hair transplant it does not require any recovery time and provides an instant transformation. It uses the latest 3D printing technology to create a custom hair and scalp prosthesis, made using clinical precision, handcrafted materials and the highest quality human hair in the world. The CNC System provides instant results and allows you to live an active lifestyle as it’s sun, sea, sweat and shower proof!
