There is a natural cycle of hair loss and re-growth that occurs everyday. Under normal circumstances we shed anywhere from 50 to 100 hairs everyday. This is normal and not a problem without of course the hair does not re-grow. If this situation occurs it will not take long for even the full head of hair to be completely bald. If this situation begins to occur, the use of an appropriate hair loss shampoo may help.
Most of the current research and statistics indicate that at least 50 percent of men will experience baldness or significant hair thinning at some stage of their lives. The cause of baldness and hair loss is still pretty much unknown.
Today there are many hair loss shampoos that can make a difference to the development of baldness if they are applied early enough. No hair loss shampoo will grow hair on a bald head. The key to any kind of successful re-growth, or at the very least the slowing down the loss of hair, is to apply the hair loss shampoo as soon as you detect any change in the state of your hair.
Most of these hair loss shampoos are freely available over the counter. There are a number of brands to choose from with brands specifically designed for men and brands specifically for women.
The majority of brands can be used by either males or females, but some types of synthetic hair loss shampoo can only be used by one sex and not the other. So when you are purchasing make sure that the hair loss shampoo you are buying is appropriate for you and your circumstances.
While these hair loss shampoos can work very effectively if applied early enough, with some of the synthetic brands, a dependency can develop wheree if the use of the specific hair loss shampoo is discontinued the hair can begin to fall out soon after.
What is becoming more popular these days in the treatment of hair loss is the use of "natural" hair loss shampoos that are full of nutrients that feed the hair follicles.
Although the subject of nutritional support to help stop hair loss is slightly controversial, some believe that it is un-scientific rubbish while others believe it provides the opportunity for an actual hair loss cure, it seems to make sense that any part of the body that is growing would need adequate supplies of nutrients to continue growing.
The best hair loss shampoo would appear to be a natural, nutrient rich shampoo that can feed each hair follicle the essential nutrients it needs to grow.
If you choose to use one of these natural nutritionally enhanced hair loss shampoos, it would also make sense to make sure that you are ingesting adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals and proteins to give your hair the nutritional support it needs internally.
So if you are serious about the healthy option to treating and preventing hair loss, make sure you are drinking plenty of pure water. Make sure your diet is made up of primarily healthy nutritionally rich foods, using supplementation where necessary. And lastly select a the best hair loss shampoo to feed the hair from the outside.
