Consider Medicative Options

If you feel that replacing your lost hair will help you cope with your anxiety, why not consider getting hair loss treatment. There are basically two ways you can treat hair loss; medication and surgical procedures.  The most popular medicine used for hair loss is Minoxidil.I It extends the blood vessels inside the scalp, which helps the hair to grow.

If you prefer not to use medication, there are alternatives such as home remedies that can be effective in treating hair loss.  Remedies, such as caffeine which acts as a stimulant that when placed onto the skin, lead to an increase in blood circulation and activates the hair follicles inside your scalp.

Other remedies, such as natural oils, are great for activating blood vessels and encouraging hair growth; these oils include jojoba oil, spearmint and cinnamon. 

Consider Getting Treatment

There is a more immediate solution to hair loss, such as hair restoration. This involves removing the original hair follicle and replacing it with another hair which comes from a donor area, such as an arm or leg, placing the healthy one in the region suffering from hair loss. The non-surgical procedure PRP therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy) involves concentrating on solidifying the hair by instigating hair growth. This a revolutionary and new procedure which has been proven to be just as effective as hair transplants.

The therapist attains some of your blood and puts it into a centrifuge. Then the blood splits into three parts; plasma, white blood cells and red blood cells. The plasma that is formed is then stimulated by a substance called thrombin and is enhanced with calcium chloride.  Then afterwards the PRP is inserted in the area where the hair loss is developing to instigate hair growth.
