In women, hormonal imbalances can also cause hair loss.
Pregnancy, childbirth and menopause all cause significant hormonal change and imbalances with both mental and physical effects.The
changes can also cause hair loss, both temporary and permanent.Hair loss and re-growth products have been around for years.
Modern medical research has focused on ways to re-open and stimulate "dead"
hair follicles, so that hair growth can re-occur naturally, as well as keep the healthy follicles healthy. Thus, a number
of products have become available, both by prescription and over-the-counter. They are advertised on radio and television
and all over the Internet. One need only do a "google" search on hair loss.
Studies have shown that in about 79% of the participants, products containing
this ingredient are effective in slowing hair loss and, in some cases, cause regrowth to occur.The most well known is Rogaine,
available at any drug store, in varieties for both men and women.There are scientifically-produced products that do have separate
products for males and females, of course, hormones in each are different in levels.An additional product containing minoxidil
is Provillus, and, again, studies have shown it to be effective.
Provillus has been the focus of many studies, just as the other products,
and level of effectiveness may be higher. Provillus is available for both men and women, and the treatment is a combination
of a topical liquid applied to the loss hair areas, as well as a capsule to be taken in conjunction with the liquid. The important
key to effectiveness, according to its makers, is the addition of the azelaic acid, the correct amount of this acid is most
important piece of this hair loss treatment.
It take from three-six months for improvement, there is a money-back guarantee
up to 180 days if one is not satisfied that it is working for him/her. New Medical research is far from finished in its exploration
of products which will stop hair loss and promote regrowth of "permanent" loss. As this research continues, existing producers
will alter their products accordingly.
