One of the major things that gives away your age is the state of your hair. You may be able to mask the greys, but there is no way to hide significant hair loss. Balding and hair thinning are problems that both men and women face with maturity. This issue oftentimes is completely out of their control too. Genetics and hormones are the main culprits in these cases, but fortunately there are several options on the market to help you regain a healthy, full head of hair!

 

  1. Hair Regrowth Vitamins

Your body needs to be taking in the right amount of nutrients in order for your hair to stay healthy. But with the busyness of life and easy-access to our favorite comfort foods, it can make a consistent well-balanced diet hard to maintain. By taking vitamin and mineral supplements to give your body the perfect amount of hair follicle boosting nutrients, you’ll see an increase in hair follicle density, strength and growth. Niacin, Zinc, Vitamin C and Biotin are some of the top hair growth supplements. These results will occur gradually and may only begin to be noticeable after 30-60 days. Pairing these with other hair regrowth treatments will generate optimum results for beautiful, shiny locks!

 

2. Hair Regrowth Shampoos

This is one of the easiest ways to stimulate hair growth. Because most of us wash our hair a few times a week (if not every day!), this hair growth treatment is a breeze. These shampoos are packed with hair-stimulating nutrients and supplements that promote growth and strengthen the hair follicles. Some of our favorite hair regrowth shampoos include the following:

 

  • Ultrax Labs Hair Surge Caffeine Hair Loss Hair Growth Stimulating Shampoo

  • HairGenics Pronexa Clinical Strength Hair Regrowth Therapy Shampoo With Biotin

  • Majestic Pure Anti-Hair Loss Shampoo With 14 DHT Blockers

  • Nioxin Hair Regrowth Shampoo

 

3. Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment

Though Platelet-Rich Plasma treatment (PRP) gained popularity as the hair-raising vampire facial, it has been growing as one of the top hair restoration treatments in cosmetic surgeons’ offices across the nation. The treatment uses blood drawn from the patient’s arm. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the rest of the particles. This creates a concentration containing 2-14 times the amount of platelets as normal blood. The PRP-cocktail is injected into the afflicted area, which will work overtime to generate growth of new follicles and promotes healing and healthy growth.

 

4. Follicular Unit Extraction

In addition to PRP treatment, Follicular Unit Extraction is another incredible way to treat hair loss and thinning. Being minimally invasive, FUE uses local anesthesia to numb the site. An extraction device is used to harvest hair follicles from the back of the head and transplant them into the target region. They are punched through the surface in segments ranging from 1-4 hair follicles. This allows for a customized, natural appearance.
