What to Do When Hair Loss Starts

It can be heartbreaking, the moment you first notice your hair beginning to thin or your hairline beginning to recede. But for two-thirds of men age 35 and older, it's a reality they've had to face. By the time they reach age 50, 85 percent of men are facing hair loss or thinning.

So, what should you do when you first notice this happening?

You don't have to jump right to shaving your head or wearing a hat. In fact, you should avoid hats if at all possible as they only tend to irritate hair follicles and contribute to the loss of hair. For women, tight hairstyles can have the same effect.

The first thing you can do is start to be more gentle with your hair. Towel dry gently after showers and look for hair products designed to help restore hair loss. Avoid ones with things like peptides and silica, which only create a false appearance of fullness.

Next, talk to Dr. Foster about options. There are medications on the market that can help slow the beginning stages of hair loss and thinning. Hair loss can also be a sign of a hormone imbalance. A simple test to check hormone levels could be all that is needed to stop your hair loss or thinning and even potentially reverse the process.

Sometimes, hair loss becomes serious enough to consider more drastic measures such as surgery. If you've gotten to the point where you're ready to do something to reverse the signs of hair loss and get your full head of hair back, call us today at 760-670-3621.

Dr. Foster has helped men and women all over the country regain their confidence and their hairline through FUE, or Follicular Unit Extraction restorative hair treatment. It's clinically proven to restore lost or thinning hair and is a permanent solution. It's a simple procedure that takes hair follicles from the back of the neck and transplants them to the areas of baldness or thinning. Read more about it on our page dedicated to hair loss.
