Hair loss is a very common problem nowadays. Although many people think that only men are vulnerable to hair loss, the fact is that women can also suffer from this problem. In this article I will write about the most common causes of hair fall and some popular ways of treatment.

Causes

There are many various causes of the condition, however, androgenetic alopecia causes hair loss problems in more than 70% of people. Both men and women can suffer from it. If you have androgenetic alopecia, your hair will not fall off instantly. First, it will become much thinner and only then you will notice that your hairline is receding. Poor nutrition, hormonal changes and some medications as well as forms of medical treatment can also provoke the condition.

Women and teenage girls can notice hair fall during hormonal changes. For example many women can experience this problem during pregnancy. If you one of them - do not worry because, in most cases, your hair will grow back and be normal again after your child is born and hormonal balance in your body is restored.

The Most Popular Treatments

If you are already bald, the most effective way for you is to use surgery. It is expensive, however, you the results are almost instant. I am talking about hair transplant. Your surgeon will move your hair follicles from one part of your body to balding area. It is called Follicular Unit Transplantation or simply FUT. I will not discuss this type of hair loss treatment here but if you are really interested in it, EzineArticles has many great articles around the topic.

If your hair loss is not yet very serious, the best solution for you would be to use minoxidil. This is the only FDA approved topical solution that is clinically tested and is proven to be really effective. Men should use products that contain 5% of minoxidil and women should use products that contain 2% of minoxidil. Personally, when I suffered from excessive hair fall, minoxidil really helped me and I noticed results in two months, however, my scalp was always itching and I had dandruff. These two side effects of minoxidil really annoyed me.

While various topical solutions fight only with the results of the problem, it is also very important to fight with initial causes. You should consume more vitamins, iron and other supplements that are responsible for healthy hair.
