Oh No!! My Hair's Falling Out!! What Can I Do?

As a young boy, I assumed hair loss was perfectly normal in grown men. This is because I never remember seeing my father with a head of hair. He always had the bald top with the hair around the sides thing going on. This was not too appealing, nor was it something I was looking forward to. As I got older, I learned that hair loss was primarily a genetic downfall. This is that point where you run to your mother and ask her if her father was bald or not. We all hope to hear, "No son, he had a full head of hair," and that is what I heard. Of course it was followed by, "Oh, but he died in his early fifties." Oh well, I could do worse. Genetics have certainly been proven to play a significant role in hair loss.
How do we deal with hair loss? What do we do if those shiny follicles gradually decrease, leaving us with nothing but a bald scalp? This can be detrimental to our self esteem. Fortunately there are hair loss treatments at our disposal. This condition is one that you are concerned with because many individuals that are in your family have had it happen to them. Your father may have had hair loss and maybe even his father as well. You know it is likely to happen to you. In fact, about 66% of men will face hair loss at some point in their life. This can be devastating news to many, especially those that wish it would skip them over. Yet, there are hair loss solutions available.
It's all about selecting the right one for you. Doing so means starting on it right now, though!
These days we have a number of hair loss treatments available. Professionals offer remedies such as transplants and plugs, but even our local drug stores have a few answers to this age-old dilemma. Products such as Rogaine are available to treat hair loss from when it begins.
In order to prevent hair loss, you should speak to your doctor about your concerns. This will help the doctor to look at your condition and determine what is causing the hair loss in the first place. If it is hereditary, that is one thing. But, if it is a condition in which individuals are experiencing it due to sickness or as a symptom to something that is much more serious, it may be necessary to have this condition taken care of right away. The fact remains that the doctor needs to determine what is causing it in order to begin suggesting a hair loss solution.
If your hair loss is due to medication that you are taking, a major surgery that has happened within the last months, a health concern, childbirth or even from chemotherapy, it is most likely that your hair loss will stop once you stop the treatments or when your body gets back to its normal hormone levels. This can take up to three months after your body is back to normal.
If your condition is hereditary, the doctor still has some options open for you. If you are still losing your hair, this is often caused by the imbalance of hormones within the body. In this case, it is necessary for the doctor to help provide medications, natural treatments or other things to help regulate the hormones so that your hair will begin to return to its normal cycles.
Hair loss is not only a problem for men. Women also suffer from baldness. This is not as commonly heard of in our society, but believe me it happens. I was more than a little bit shocked back in the eighth grade when I spent the night at a friend's house. When his mother came home from work and introduced herself, I was speechless. She barely had any hair. How hard that must be as a woman in today's society, which holds such a hardcore focus on beauty and youth.
In conclusion, if you really want to stop your hair loss, you will need to seek out help as soon as possible. If you notice that you are losing a lot of hair each month or that you are thinning, which means hair is not growing back, you should seek out the help of your doctor right away. When in consultation with your doctor, you should ask him or her about the hair loss treatments available, and whether they are suitable for you, and whether indeed there are any known side-effects. This is particularly true if you are pregnant, as hair loss during and after pregnancy is not uncommon.
