3 Hair Loss Questions Answered
Can You Make Your Hair Grow Faster
Maybe you tried a short hair style like a bob and now you have realized you don’t care for that style and want your long, flowing locks back. I am afraid to tell you that there is no secret to getting hair to grow faster. There are products out there that claim to increase the hair growth rate but what they actually encourage is hair growth. They give your hair the nutrients it needs to grow at it’s fastest rate but it doesn’t increase your full hair rate. Look for products that include zinc in them as well as biotin. If you are getting enough nutrients, your hair should grow but don’t expect to see inches every week.
Am I Losing More Hair Than I Should Be?
Hair loss is not the same for everyone. The average person will lose 50 or more strands of hair each day. This is just part of the normal hair growth cycle. During this hair growth cycle you can expect to see a certain amount of hair fall out in a certain amount of time, but that hair will grow back after the period of dormancy.
If your hair shedding happens in clumps then this might indicate a nutrient disorder or perhaps the side effects of medication and you should talk to your doctor.
Can I Stop Male Pattern Baldness from Happening?
You may have seen ads on television for hair products for thinning hair. Now you want to know if there is anything you can do to reduce the chance that your hairline will recede. Male pattern baldness, also known as androgenic alopecia is a hereditary condition. Your genes are already pre-programmed. It is important for you to eat a healthy diet if you want to minimize the risk of hair loss. There is no guaranteed way to stop hair loss however. The FDA has approved treatments that can help you maintain the hair you have and prevent further hair loss. If you notice you are starting to have thinning hair you should see a hair replacement specialist to learn more.
