Losing your hair can feel like the end of the world. For men, it can even happen from a young age, and while some embrace it, others feel like it ages them prematurely and causes a crisis of confidence.
This guide will look at some of the options available to you to combat the lack of confidence that comes with losing your hair.
Sprays that cling to your remaining hair strands are probably the least invasive option of all hair loss treatments. They are also generally the cheapest; however, they are non-permanent and therefore you are paying for them over and over again.
The other downside of these sprays is that they are designed to wash out, so if you get caught in a particularly heavy shower of rain, you could be onto the disastrous ground.
If you plan on using it occasionally on a night out, however, then it could be a good option for you.
If you’re someone who wears their hair very short or shaven, then hair tattoos are a great way of creating the illusion of hair.
The treatment itself usually needs 3-4 sessions and is essentially the same as getting a tattoo anywhere else. Generally, the treatment is permanent, although the odd top-up may be required from time to time to increase pigment.
You are advised to avoid heat and the gym for a few days after each session. You can have this treatment either for your hairline or all over your head if you have multiple bald spots.
A hair transplant is a surgical procedure that is the most invasive of all the treatment options we will discuss today.
There are a few different options, some of which involve a very time-consuming process of implanting individual strands into the scalp, and others that involve implanting full strips of hair.
The recovery time from this is going to be a lot longer, but it’s a great way of restoring actual hair growth as opposed to the appearance of hair.
Injectables are a great hair restoration treatment option that is less invasive than full surgery and therefore also cheaper. It can take a couple of treatments to begin to see results, however.
It uses the client’s own blood plasma to stimulate hair growth and is growing hugely in popularity in recent years.
There is no recovery time unlike surgery and once you have the desired result, it only takes top-ups once per year to maintain results. So, it is a great low-maintenance option in comparison to surgery.
A small amount of swelling and bleeding is not uncommon with this procedure but it is generally short-lived.
There are lots of treatment options on the market for hair loss now and so dealing with baldness is a thing of the past.
Whether you choose a complementary therapy like a follicle-stimulating massage or a more invasive procedure, you should fully research your options before making a decision to ensure you choose the correct procedure for you.
