One of the first reflex actions suffered by those who begin to feel the first symptoms of hair loss is to buy a hair loss shampoo to stop what is often inevitable.
If this is our case and we suffer from diagnosed androgenetic alopecia, we must choose one of the following solutions to stop hair loss and promote hair regeneration by helping our scalp to stay in perfect condition, without seborrhea and away from everything that means silicones and parabens.
When asked about the components of shampoos, conditioners, ampoules and pills that can help in this process of stopping hair loss or hair regeneration, specialists point to minoxidil, both in men and women and finasteride, exclusively for baldness common among men.
In the case of minoxidil, it points out that it is a vasodilator that can help both in the prevention and in the first phase of hair loss, that is, when the hair follicles have not been obstructed. His work is to increase the blood supply to the scalp, allowing more nutrients to reach the follicles, preventing them from closing forever. This makes it possible both to stop a fall at an early stage and to keep the growth of follicles that have not yet ceased their activity. When the hair is regenerated through a solution such as minoxidil, it is normal for it to grow fine and weak and gradually recover its previous thick and appearance.
It is important to point out that, according to the Dermatological Medical Institute, the effectiveness of this component ranges from 15% to 60%, and that after the first six months of using it, when it begins to check whether it is effective for the patient. If it shows positive results, it is important to emphasize that the treatment must be continued for life, since the interruption in the administration of this substance could have as secondary effect like the loss of the regenerated hair.
As for finasterida, also known as finasteride, it is considered to be the medication that helps most to stop common baldness. The result obtained by resorting this active principle is to inhibit the enzyme 5 alphareductase, an enzyme that transforms testosterone into DHT (dihydrotestosterone) responsible for progressive hair loss. Like what happens with monoxidil, once it is necessary to use it for life, if you do not want to lose your regenerated hair.
Often, it is necessary to have a daily recourse to this type of products in order to prevent the lost of the regenerated hair after a fall, many of the patients end up opting for a hair transplant, knowing that it is a perfect solution that does not require more than a quick and effective intervention, that can be achieved through micrografts using the FUE technique.
