Hair Loss Problems and How to Cope With It

When it comes to our look, we are almost always ready to try out remedies that might not have a scientific basis or are backed by conclusive proof.

Because of this, there are many half truths and whole lies doing the rounds on the internet.

One of these is the fact that Hartz flea and Tick Treatment is capable of making your hair grow again from bald spots on your scalp. You must have heard that if you apply the solution on your bald spots, you can have your hair grow back. Well, that is far from the truth.

What Hartz flea and Tick Treatment can really do is rid your hair of fleas and ticks. The other thing that it can actually do is lead to hair loss. That is why; many retailers have stopped stocking this product.

Well, Hartz flea and Tick Treatment is not the only product which does not lead to hair growth. There are other myths too, like lemon juice, garlic, onion, kerosene and even manure! Well, needless to say that these products can do nothing more than make you stink and ruin your chances of having a perfect head of hair. The product that will work however is Minoxidil which is approved by the FDA.

The reason why majority of the people suffer hair loss is due to the loss of Dihydrotestosterone. It is also known as DHT and is derived from testosterone. If hair loss is to be prevented, the effective measure would be to reduce production of DHT or to somehow stop the DHT from reaching the hair follicles.

In order to stop the production of DHT, you can take the oral drug named Propecia. Minoxidil would come in handy when you want to stop the hair follicles from absorbing DHT. In any case, these drugs are effective as long as you take them. Once you stop taking these drugs, your problem might arise again.

Before taking any of the drugs, you should consult a doctor. There are doctors who specialize in the hair loss area and would be able to give you the best advice. However my advice would be to keep away from myths and suggestions.
