Hair hair regrowth

While we most typically associate baldness with males, the truth is that this problem affects both men and women, and is a lot more common than most people think. While men typically lose the most hair in this process, sometimes having no hair follicles on their head at all, women usually experience hair loss by the thinning of hair around the crown area. In some cases, the thinning can become quite pronounced and have the same effects on a appearance and a person's pshyche as a male who is completely bald.



If you are one of those people who have been slowly losing your hair, now is the time to start looking for an over the counter hair loss and re-growth treatment. While it is always better to consult a doctor or a hair loss expert before you try hair growth products, people looking for a fix to a not so serious issue and looking to spend less money than is required for consultations and in office treatments, picking an over the counter re-growth treatment is an option.

How Effective Are These Over the Counter Products?

While over the counter options cost much less than in office visits to treat hair loss, you will also need to wait longer to see results when using these products.

In most cases, you will need to use over the counter hair loss and re-growth treatment products for at least a few months before you can see some results. And, according to studies, it may take around 4 to 12 months before one can truly see some improvements in your hair.

Choosing the Right Re-growth Hair Loss Treatment

First things first. When it comes to hair loss, its important to note if the thinning of your hair is hereditary in nature. If so, over the counter treatments may be good for you. There is one non-prescriptive medicine for hereditary hair loss "Minoxidil" which is currently being sold and is approved by the FDA. The one warning to be careful with products that contain minoxidil, while considered safe by experts, is taking care and following instructions carefully to prevent the growth of unwanted hair.

If you are looking to purchase a Minoxidil-based product, it is also important to note that there are differing offerings formulated for men and women. Products intended for men usually contain more minoxidil than those products that are for women - as taking in this product could cause women to grow hair in unwanted and fast rates particularly in places like the face and neck.

Another great tip to keep in mind if you plan to select an over the counter hair loss and re-growth treatment is to pick products that are lotion-like and can be applied twice daily, this can help you to better control the amount of application you are using than a liquid shampoo can offer.
