Promising Ways To Reverse Women’s Hair Loss

By Beth Woodard

Women are affected by hair loss as much as men are. According to some researchers, hair loss actually affects more women than men. There are now more ways to treat women’s hair loss issues than men’s. Women now have several promising alternatives if they find that their hair is thinning. If you are facing hair loss, you’ll be glad to know about some of the following possible treatments.

Rogaine is a well known drug taken by men for hair loss. It is not as well known that there is a Rogaine that works for women. It goes by the name of Minoxidil. Studies suggest, however, that this drug for women actually has a higher rate of success than Rogaine for men. It stimulates the follicles to regrow hair when applied topically to your head. As a matter of fact, the FDA has only approved one drug for hair growth, and it is Minoxidil.

Spinolactone, though not FDA approved, is another hair loss treatment that many people are trying. This is a drug that’s taken orally. It is sold under the brand name Aldactone. The category of drug it falls under is potassium sparing diuretic. What this really means is that it’s a water pill of sorts. It ensures that your body hold onto the potassium it needs while reducing your fluid levels. It also prevents substances called androgens, which can stop your hair growth, from functioning. These pills are designed to prevent your body from acknowledging the androgens, which means your hair should be able to grow.

Another promising drug for women’s hair loss is Cimetidine, which is also claled Tagamet. This drug was actually created to block histamines and ulcers in the body. It works to treat ulcers when they first begin to form. Yet it was found by scientists that this drug also helps to thwart androgen receptors in the body, which can reverse hair loss. It is androgens that determine how your hair grows. Blocking them effectively allows your follicles to produce more hair. Remember, however, that the FDA has not approved this drug for stimulating hair growth, so you should not try to obtain it without the proper prescription.

There are many ways that women react to hair loss. For some women, hair loss is not a devastating occurrence, and they take it in stride. Other women will do anything they can to hold onto their hair. Only you can decide what course of action to take. It’s always a good idea, however, to ask your doctor before you start taking any kind of drug. Once you understand why you are facing hair loss, your doctor can advise you about the best treatment options.
