Stop Reaching for a New Shampoo
When people start noticing their hair thinning or shedding, one of the first things they do is reach for a different shampoo. But can that really help? Will changing your shampoo help stop hair loss?
What to Look For
Some shampoos claim to help prevent hair loss. The key ingredients that they advertise include ketoconazole, caffeine, biotin and saw palmetto among others. There is some research and hypothesis linking these ingredients to vitamins or other processes in the body that affect hair and hair follicles. Some even are recommended in conjunction with key hair loss regimens like minoxidill. However, none of these address underlying causes of hair loss.
Do Shampoos Work?
Could these shampoos work? Maybe. It depends on what is really causing your hair loss. That’s why it’s important to have a consultation with a hair loss specialist. There could be any number of contributing factors that you haven’t even considered yet. In addition to hereditary factors, there could be nutritional and lifestyle choices impacting your hairline.
The reason most people opt to reach first for the shampoo bottle is because it’s an easy option, even if results aren’t quick to come. It requires no invasive procedures or time off of work. This is really appealing for those with busy personal and professional lives. But there is an alternative which meets these needs and is actually effective.
PRP – The Solution That Works
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, creates an optimal environment of growth for the hair follicles. PRP has been shown to convert the hair follicles from inactive to active. Which means your natural hair gets a super boost from your own platelets.
And the best part, the procedure can be done in one afternoon with no down time, no time off work, no missed date nights.
