Hair loss is becoming an increasing problem for many people, not only just in the U.S. but throughout most countries. For men it is regarded as somewhat more socially acceptable to be balding, but for women the situation is slightly different. However, there are a wide variety of hair loss solutions that are available, so it is a question of spending a little time to find a solution right for you.
The first step to finding a solution for your hair loss is to establish what the cause is. If the cause is identified as being temporary such as a reaction to medication, a result of pregnancy, or stress from undergoing major surgery, then you may decide not to undergo any treatment but just wait for your hair to grow back.
If you do decide though to look for a treatment, you may be somewhat staggered by the number and variety of hair loss solutions for you to try. To start with, there are hair loss shampoos and hair thickeners, both of which are regularly advertised on TV and in magazines.
Other hair loss solutions include natural remedies such as herbs. Your local herbal store should be able to give you more advice in this area, taking into consideration any herbs you may be allergic too.
Of course there are also wigs, which is seen as a common solution for women if your hair loss is caused for example as a result of undergoing radiation or another type of chemical therapy.
Then there is the option of surgery to consider, especially if your hair loss is more permanent than temporary. You would probably be surprised if you knew how many men and women opted for hair transplant treatment as a solution.
For men, one alternative solution may be to completely shave your head. After all think about Kojak, Vin Diesel and other male actors who have little or no hair. This option certainly is a cheaper alternative than some of the other hair loss solutions available.
There are without a doubt, such a wide variety of hair loss solutions and preventative treatments available today that to mention them all here would take too long, and would be too much for you to read. What though I believe is most important to consider when choosing a hair loss solution is to be aware of the potential side effects that it can have.
Finally, if you do choose one of the hair loss solutions containing drugs, consult a medical professional first to ensure that it wont react with any other medication that you are taking.
