Losing hair is absolutely devastating. It’s even more frustrating when you’re not sure what triggered the hair loss to begin with!
Stop for a minute and think... Have I recently been under immense stress? Switched anything in my diet or hair care routine? If you can’t pinpoint the exact culprit, don’t fret. As a stylist I get asked about hair loss almost daily. There are a lot of factors that influence the health of your hair. Stress, age, genetic makeup, hormonal changes, wrong products, and more.
The good news is that you can do your part to prevent it from getting worse, and quite possibly get you hair back. How, do you ask? In this article, we have compiled a list of anti-thinning products that have proven to be effective, time and again.
Have a look.
Best Anti-Thinning Hair Products
Nutrafol hair vitamins
Promising you with healthier hair growth without any compromise, Nutrafol is one product that you can bless your hair with. Introducing a new approach to hair wellness, Nutrafol targets the root causes behind hair thinning.
The best part – Nutrafol understands that the bodily needs of both men and women are different, and so, they have a separate line of products for each gender. Not only this, to help women combat against falling hair during and after menopause, Nutrafol has an entire range dedicated to this problem – Nutrafol Women’s Balance.
Essentially, Nutrafol is a breakthrough formula consisting of antioxidants like Ashwagandha and Tocotrienol, and DHT-targeting ingredients like Saw Palmetto.
Talking about the results, Nutrafol claims that 80% of women who participated in a clinical trial registered an improved hair growth.
Now that’s what we call a miracle!
Rogaine or minoxidil has been around since the 1950s. Its effects are undeniable and prominent in people who have used it for as little as 1 month. It stimulates the resting hair follicles to start growing again, and within a couple of months, you can start seeing lots of wispy hair poking out of your head.
Rogaine is extremely effective against male pattern baldness. The product is available in varied strengths - with 2% being the mild strength. However, you would need a doctor’s prescription to get higher strength products.
Similar to Nutrafol, Rogaine also has an exclusive range of products for men and women. The application is simple – all you need to do is massage a little bit on the scalp after shampooing. Do this consistently for a month, and you will see noticeable positive results.
One of the best parts of Rogaine is that it is capable of working on one of the most stubborn types of hair loss that is beyond anyone’s control, the hereditary hair loss.
In a study conducted in 1987 in Germany, 40 percent of men in the experiment showed exceptional hair growth. Others had a varying degree of success, with only 16 percent of men showing no results.
But if you are not above 40, and still have some of your hair left (which means your hair follicles are inactive, not completely dead) then there’s no reason why Rogaine can’t be a new chapter for you.
Pura D'or pro-grade anti-hair thinning shampoo and conditioner
Hair that’s prone to damaging needs extra care. Nutrafol and Rogaine are excellent resources for stimulating new hair growth. However, you also need something that can keep the hair that’s already on your head to stay healthy.
This is where this anti-thinning formula consisting of a mix of organic ingredients such as Biotin, Pumpkin Seed, Black Cumin Seed Oil, Nettle, and other plant-based ingredients help you increase volume and give thicker hair.
Pura D'or is super gentle on your scalp and has a very mild fragrant, so you can use this even if you have sensitive skin. It’s free from harmful chemicals like sulfate and paraben. Use it in a combination with any other hair loss drugs. There are no side effects to this formula.
The combination is top grade and will leave a lustrous shine in your hair that you simply can't get from the generic brands from the pharmacy.
HairMax Ultima Laser Comb
Your hair follicles are made up of cells called chromophores. When stimulated, these cells trigger a chain of events that cause new hair to start growing. And what stimulates these cells? You guessed it. Hair laser combs.
The HairMax Ultima is a great quality laser comb. You can use it by parting your hair to let the laser rays shine through. This brush is approved by the FDA, so if you are feeling squeamish about using the laser on your hair, don’t be. It does not hurt at all.
You can use it only three times a week for a couple of months and start seeing results that no herbal remedy could ever produce. You can even combine it with other products safely as it has no reactions or side effects.
If you are still not convinced, there are countless user stories, reviews and positive media coverage available to change your mind. Here’s one: Time Magazine declared it the invention of the year.
iRestore Laser Hair Growth System
Whether you have a receding hairline or thinning crown or bald spots – iRestore laser hair growth system is what you need.
Did we not just see a laser comb? Is this any different? Yes. Yes, it is.
Unlike the comb, the iRestore is a helmet-like device that you wear on your head. Do that for 25 minutes every two days, and voila! In 3 to six months you can start to see a complete hair regeneration revolution. This is also FDA cleared so there’s no need to worry about safety.
What’s more, this laser hair product comes with a warranty. Not just of the laser device, of the fact that if your hair growth shows no improvement in 12 months, you can have the device returned for a full price. No, there are no shipping or restocking fees for returning it.
If you feel you want to fasten the process, you can combine it with Rogaine, after getting it prescribes from your physician. But overall, just be patient and follow the routine. That’s all it takes to start seeing results.
