Helpful Tips on How to Prevent a Balding Head

While a receding hairline in men, and thinning of the hair in women, may be part of the natural ageing process, it's a part that most people would rather avoid or at least delay for as long as possible. Fortunately, there are products available that can deal with hair loss conditions effectively. Depending on the active ingredients, they can be taken orally in capsule or tablet form, or they can be applied topically in lotions, sprays or shampoos. Used correctly, they can prevent balding or stop it in its tracks, and they can also reverse the balding process with substantial hair regrowth in most cases. Here are some tips to help prevent a balding head.

Buy Effective Medications

Although there are many concoctions made from herbal extracts that supposedly prevent, halt or reverse the balding process, there is no scientific evidence that they actually work. Products that do work and that are commonly prescribed by doctors for hair loss prevention and regrowth include finasteride and minoxidil. These are scientifically proven remedies that are very effective for most people who are experiencing pattern baldness or other forms of alopecia.

Buy from Reputable UK Sources

You can buy finasteride and other genuine hair loss prevention products online, but you're taking a risk if you buy them from an unknown source, especially from abroad. There's no guarantee that they'll be of sufficient quality or that other ingredients in their formulation will meet the UK's strict legal requirements concerning the sale of drug-based medications. If you want to obtain genuine hair loss prevention products online, you should only buy from reputable, UK-based, fully registered pharmacies, such as oxfordonlinepharmacy.co.uk. This pharmacy, and others such as chemistdirect.co.uk and assuredpharmacy.co.uk don't just dish out drugs on request with no questions asked; you first have to provide details of your hair loss condition and any other pertinent details regarding your general health in a questionnaire as part of the online application. Your chosen pharmacy's staff doctor or pharmacist will then assess your request and will only approve the sale if, in their professional opinion, it's suitable in your particular case.

Learn about Available Products

Finasteride can treat male pattern baldness effectively, and you can also buy finasteride under the brand names, Propecia and Proscar. Minoxidil is another proven hair loss remedy and is also available under brand names including Rogaine and Regaine. Some products such as Regaine for Women are formulated to halt and reverse female pattern baldness, which, typically, is experienced as overall thinning of the hair rather than the noticeably receding hairline of male pattern baldness.

Follow the Instructions Carefully

It's important to follow the instructions that come with any hair loss prevention product and to use it consistently and regularly. The treatment will be ineffective or less effective if you use it incorrectly, and you should also be aware that your hair loss will resume if you stop using the treatment. Be patient, too. The effects of the medication may not be apparent for several weeks, so don't jump to the conclusion that you're doing something wrong or that you're one of the small percentage of people for whom the product is ineffective. The majority of people using it will experience results that they'll be happy with within a matter of months.

Eat Healthily

Whether you opt to buy finasteride or another product to prevent hair loss, you can improve your body's ability to respond to the medication more positively if you eat foods that promote healthy hair growth. The foods themselves can't prevent or reverse hair loss, but in conjunction with your hair loss prevention medication, they can help ensure that when regrowth of your lost hair begins, it, and your remaining hair, won't be lank and lifeless but strong and vital. Foods that are considered beneficial for hair include those that are high in protein, iron, zinc, biotin, vitamin E, omega-3 and selenium. Foods such as eggs, kidney beans, lentils, beef, nuts, avocado and oily fish contain a variety of the healthful ingredients that hair needs in order to be at its most attractive, both in looks and feel.
