For millions of men, going bald is a fact of life. If you are between the ages of 20 - 45, and you are starting to lose your hair, then chances are you are suffering from male pattern baldness, the most common form known as androgenetic alopecia. Androgenetic alopecia is a progressive hair thinning condition that typically occurs in adult males, and is distinguished by hair receding from the sides of the forehead or a bald patch on the top of the head.
For many men, losing their hair is a blow to their confidence and damages their self-image. Help can be found in the many solutions on the market that purport to stimulate hair growth and restore what time (and genetics) so cruelly took away. These include shampoos, topical ointments, creams, and pills. A recent trend has men tattooing hair on bald patches to mask areas that have thinned!
Unfortunately, some solutions may be more effective than others. Some may work for one person, but not another. One thing is certain – nearly all of them can get expensive, and in this economy, paying for them may not be a risk a man would take without a 100% guarantee of results.
A more cost-effective way to address hair loss is through the use of hair enhancement products. Sometimes referred to as hair thickeners or concealers, they bond to existing, thinning hair and thicken it to appear as if unaffected. In some cases, these enhancement solutions can be applied to the scalp to color it and further hide hair loss or cover up graying hair to promote a more youthful look.
A good hair enhancement solution will be fully waterproof, yet wash out with shampoo and reapplied as necessary. Once applied, you can brush or comb the affected area after application. The benefit is that the hair enhancement solution can be used continually, as needed, and the products can last 2-3 months or more.
The best solution depends on the level of hair loss and hair type, but hair enhancement products are among the most cost effective ways to address hair loss, with a high rate of satisfaction.
