So do these home hair loss cures actually work?
What options are available to treat hair loss effectively?
- Hair transplant surgery – this is a highly effective option for more advanced cases of male pattern hair loss. It’s pricey, but it works, and these days the scarring is barely visible. If you’re a woman with hair loss though, or a man with just the beginnings of a receding hairline, hair transplant surgery might not be the right choice for you.
- Low level laser therapy (LLLT) – this has been shown to be relatively effective, particularly on female pattern hair loss, which tends to be more diffuse. Cheaper than a hair transplant, the results are not guaranteed, but you’ve got a better chance than using a scalp rub!
- Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP) – this one is absolutely guaranteed to work, but it’s not about slowing hair loss, or stimulating new hair growth. This revolutionary, tattoo-like treatment simulates the look of close-shorn hair. Shave your head and go for the buzz cut look, or if diffuse thinning is your problem, use it to disguise the thinning areas.
