Any guy who has ever looked in the mirror and seen a slightly younger version of his dad staring back at him understands the shock of thinning hair. Thus begins the age old question: do any real hair loss cures exist?
Science is moving in that direction, but unfortunately, there are still a lot of misconceptions flying around. Hair loss in itself is a terrible blow to most guys' egos. Adding insult to injury, men have to wonder if they may have done something to bring this degradation on themselves. Many theories about what causes hair loss have been passed off as truth for decades. For example, a myth exists that says wearing a hat will cause male pattern baldness. How about the one that says if you use too many hair care products you will bring this curse upon yourself. There is absolutely no truth in either of those.
Those, and many others, have been feeble attempts to explain the unpleasantness of thinning hair. Does it really matter what causes it? What you really want to know is "is there any thing that cures hair loss?" Guys who are dealing with thinning hair know there are a lot of false promises made by the hair loss industry. Supposed miracle cures usually fall short of their claims.
Creams, shampoos, supplements, special diets-- most men suffering the early stages of hair loss have tried them all. There is even an "old wise tale" that encourages men to stand on their heads in order to heal hair loss. The thought being that it will cause increased blood flow to the scalp, which in turn will regenerate hair growth. Scientists have agreed that increased blood flow is not enough to revive dead hair follicles.
One school of thought that is gaining credibility is that, if you keep the scalp and hair healthy, it will minimize or even prevent hair from falling out. This treatment starts with the source of the hair loss. Using a vitamin enriched product, applied to the scalp, has proven positive results in 86% of patients using it. Give your scalp and hair the vitamins it needs as you age, and you will see an amazing decrease in hair loss, and even possible regrowth.
Finally, there may actually be viable hair loss cures and treatment. This is a welcome light at the end of the tunnel for the nearly two-thirds of American men who will experience male pattern baldness by the age of 35!
