Top Hair Loss Prevention Tactics for 2017

Hair loss shampoos

A simple way to dip your foot in the hair care ocean is to try out some hair loss shampoos. Now it is important to note that these types of shampoos aren’t simply going to result in the flurried sprouting of hairs where there was once a desert of nothingness. Rather, they can be used to keep your hair healthy and promote the redevelopment of damaged hair follicles.

Specialised Haircare Formulas

Various innovative formulas have been developed such as REVITACARE® which is a product that works by hydrating the scalp. In the process it prevents and reduces hair loss as well as stimulating the growth of new hair follicles at the treated area. This particular formula has been developed by French experts and can help those suffering from slow growth or thinning hair. Many patients describe a much improved quality of hair from the root all the way to the tip!



Rogaine is a hair loss product that can be bought form various supermarkets. The key ingredient found in Rogaine is minoxidil. This works by reinvigorating shrunken hair follicles. In effect, this expands their size and helps hair to regrow thicket over time.

You are suggested to apply this foam for twice per day so that it can penetrate the scalp and start working on your hair follicles. In the first 2 weeks you may experience some ‘shedding’ which is where old hairs can fall out as your scalp gets ready to grow new hairs. After around 2-4 months you will start to see soft colourless hair growing that eventually matures into full thickness hair.


Hair Growth Vitamins

Many people suffer hair loss due to a poor diet. In a similar way that protein is needed for muscles to regrow, certain minerals and vitamins are needed for your hair to keep growing healthily. a Poor diet can leave your hair unnourished and severely neglected.

As life is very fast paced, getting all of the vitamins that your body needs can be very difficult. In order to make life easier you can buy specific vitamins that will ensure your hair gets all the nutrients it needs.


PRP for Hair Loss

A new and revolutionary treatment for hair loss is with the use of Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP). PRP is a very safe, non-invasive procedure that can help those with a desire to regrow lost hair on their scalp. In total, the treatment takes around 90 minutes. The result is that dormant hair follicles are given a boost and stimulated to start growing once more like a phoenix from the ashes.
So what exactly does the procedure look like? Well, the first thing to happen is the collection of a few syringes of your blood. This is then spun around in a machine called a centrifuge. The result of this is that your blood separates into its component allowing us to isolate and remove the platelets. These platelets contain molecules that help stimulate the growth of new cells. We create a new variation of your blood that contains a much higher percentage of platelets. We not have Platelet-Rich-Plasma or PRP.
The next step is for your head to be prepared to accept the PRP more effectively. W do this with a dermal roller. This is a small micro-needling device that helps to stimulate the cells on the scalp. Following this, we inject the PRP into areas covering the scalp. You’ll notice the results in just three months as new hair starts to grow back looking thicker and more vibrant.

The Hair Transplant

Offered only by hair specialists, the hair transplant is a costly treatment and often the final swing of the bat for those trying to replenish their balding head. Famous people such as Wayne Rooney have publicly gone through the treatment. Although hair does grow back in most cases, it can often end up looking floppy and flimsy. The treatment, in essence, involves the removal and implanting of new hair follicle cells from one part of your body and into the area of the head that is to be treated. It can take some time for the new hair follicles to be accepted and for the hair to start to regrow but for many the wait is well worth the result.


In conclusion…

We have covered a variety of hair replenishing tactics throughout this article. It would be suggested to try methods such as PRP and specialised hair care formulas before going for more costly methods such as hair transplants. It is also advised to seek medical advice before seeking out medicinal treatments such as Minoxidil. Whatever route you choose to go down, we hope that now you are more prepared and have a wealth of ideas that you can employ in the battle to beat balding.
