Premature Balding Solutions

Premature Balding has a universal presence. And it is universally disliked. Naturally, studies are being conducted all over the world to find medications and remedies to solve the problem.
How to Deal With the Problem?
The following steps may help to handle the problem of premature balding.

Consulting your physician – First consult your Physician. Try to detect the exact cause of the premature hair loss you are experiencing. That will help you choose the right medication. In case you are suffering from Androgenetic Alopecia, then only drugs and surgical measures can help you solve the problem.

Reassessing the type and extent of hair loss - Make a note of the type and extent of hair loss that you have.
Treatments you have already tried – It might so happen that you have already tried some treatments that have not worked. Please make an analysis of that treatment. This will help in marking out the right kind of treatment that you need.

Your personal preference – After studying the appropriate medication processes, spot one that suits you. Identify the one that you will prefer to go for. There might be a couple of limiting parameters including the amount of money you are ready to spend and how much time you are willing to spend on your treatment regime.
The Medications Available
Some of the principal medications available are as follows -

Finasteride - It was originally developed to treat enlarged prostate conditions. But a low dose version of it is approved to treat male hair loss. It tackles the factors causing androgenetic alopecia by preventing the conversion of 5-alpha-reductase into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is the main male hormone linked to hair loss. Thus, reducing its production has a major impact on controlling this type of baldness.

Women are strictly advised to consult physicians before using the drug.

Dutasteride (Avodart) - Its style of functioning is similar to that of Finasteride. But it reportedly reduces overall DHT production to a great extent - more so than finasteride.

Women are again strictly advised to consult physicians before using the drug.

Minoxidil (Rogaine) - Its mode of action is to directly stimulate the hair follicle into an increased level of growth activity.

In addition to these options, there are a number of herbal supplements playing an effective role in preventing premature balding.
