Q. What are my options to deal with my hair loss?
A. Let's start with one fact: The most common forms of hair loss—aging and genetics—are irreversible. There is no magic cure for baldness, despite what you may have read or heard. No pills, potions, herbs, or shampoos will bring back a full head of hair.
If your doctor has ruled out any medical reason for the hair loss, you might first try Rogaine (minoxidil) or Propecia (finasteride). Rogaine is the first (and most common) FDA-approved non-prescription treatment for hair loss. Propecia is a prescription-only medication. Rogaine (and other topicals) and Propecia do work, but really successful hair restoration occurs in only a handful of people. Most often the results are fine, patchy hair—don't expect a full head of hair. Also, Rogaine and Propecia don't necessarily stop hair loss, only slow it down. And they are both expensive. Once you begin either treatment, you need to continue with them forever, or else the hair loss will continue. Finally, Propecia is recommended only for men, and because it is a prescription drug, it can interact with other medications.
A more radical approach is a hair transplant. First of all, you need to have sufficient scalp hair to harvest. Keep in mind that while the transplanted follicles do grow in their new location, hair transplants don't stop the actual loss of additional hair. So, as time goes on, you might need more transplants. And that means you need to keep finding areas around your scalp where there's enough donor hair. Now there's no doubt that hair transplants can look great. But they can be extremely time-consuming, painful, and expensive, costing as much as ten thousand dollars or even more.
Then there are hair replacement systems. That's what I offer. Usually made of natural, lustrous hair, they are relatively inexpensive and easy to maintain. You get more flexibility and control over the style and design of your hair. Best of all, you see positive, immediate results.
