You just need to take a look at pharmacies or par-pharmacies to realize the number of shampoos, lotions, conditioners and oils that make sure to prevent or stop hair loss. The big question that consumers face is: which of them can really stop the hair loss?
The first thing any person who notices a hair fall has to do before buying an anti-hair loss shampoo is to visit a specialized clinic to be examined by a doctor. This is really important if we consider the existence of a hundred types of alopecia. If we realize that every type has a different solution we will understand the need to visit a specialist before believing in false promises.
Beyond the difficulty that consumers face every time they see or hear the promises of different laboratories, they pay no attention to, for example, that external applications of many of these shampoos or oils don´t offer real results, since they don’t penetrate enough to reach the root of the hair follicle so to have a real impact.
Other things that people don’t know, that washing hair for many times a day or even on a daily basis is not good, also it is not recommendable to wash it once a week because, as many experts say, when we spend a long time without washing it we can notice how the hair that has not been eliminated through washing have been accumulated on our scalp generating an effect of stress in those who think they are losing daily more than 50 or 100 hairs as the studies mark.
Once we have visited the specialist, he has diagnosed us and has indicated what shampoo is recommended for our case, a new important question arises in order to avoid mistakes that could generate more problems for us. That is: Is it recommendable to always use the same shampoo?
A question that most of the consulted experts consider that if the treatment is indicated by the specialist, and is useful both for treatment of the skin scalp and the washing of our hair, it is not always wrong to choose the same product. On the other hand, they add it is not necessary to change shampoo constantly if new hair problems related with seborrhea secretion or dandruff do not appear.
Although androgenic alopecia -the most common one- is impossible to prevent, the truth is that it can be diagnosed and treated in order to strengthen healthy follicles, preventing them from weakening and being part of those that are causing hair loss. Some of the most common tips to prevent hair loss are:
-To visit a specialist at the moment you notice an odd hair loss.
-Get an early diagnosis and follow the treatment the specialist recommends.
-Follow the indicated treatment with constancy in order to stop the advance of alopecia.
-Be aware that, often, only the hair transplant can be the key to recover hair density.
-Knowing that neither a hair cut nor vitamins will strength the hair, improve its appearance or stop any type of alopecia.
