Several methods are being used since time immemorial to cure the condition of hair loss. Hair loss is not just a male problem; it occurs in women too. Only those in women, it is not so very conspicuous. However, there are several treatment methods for both men as well as women. One such unisex treatment method is the hair loss treatment shampoo.
As the name suggests, this is a shampoo – a medicated shampoo, in fact – that is meant to be applied directly over the scalp, when having a bath. It does foam and lather like normal bath shampoos do, but the amount of lather is lesser than them. The shampoo is usually meant to be rubbed onto the scalp with the fingers and work it on slowly. Then it is to be kept on the scalp for a few minutes – five minutes are ideal – and then washed away with water. Cool water (not cold) shows better effects with these shampoos.
Today there are a lot of hair loss treatment shampoos available in the market. You will get one at your nearby drugstore. Or, you could get a prescribed one from a doctor. There are several brands on the Internet too, too many in fact, and deciding the one that would be good for your condition from among them is usually a pain. That is why, getting a hair loss treatment shampoo upon a doctor’s prescription is the best bet.
Most of the hair loss treatment shampoos are all herbal products, and these are very safe to use. At least, most of the genuine ones are! Generally, the herbal ingredients that these shampoos contain are aloe vera, saw palmetto, nettle, primrose oil, wheat extracts, carrot extracts, cucumber extracts, ginseng extracts, avocado extracts, rosemary, citric acid, etc. Several nutrients found in the food such as vitamin B3, vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin A and several others are also added for extra effects from the shampoos.
There are also several synthetic shampoos available. These have ingredients like sodium laureth sulfate, cocamidopropyl betaine, methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, phenoxyethanol,biotin, glycol stearate and hydrolyzed glycosaminogylacans among others. In all these shampoos, whether they are herbal or synthetic, the water used is always deionized pure water.
Of course, there are many shampoos – in fact most of them – that are a blend of herbal and synthetic products. Different companies have their own formulations too, and depending on the products used, these shampoos can bring additional benefits to the users such as shinier and silkier hair, hair that does not break, dandruff treatment, etc. In that way, other hair issues can also be addressed along with the use of the hair loss treatment shampoos. Because of their medical properties, these shampoos are always much more expensive than the normal shampoos that are available in the market.
If you are thinking of buying a hair loss treatment shampoo for yourself, the price should not be your first deciding factor. Look at the ingredients and study up a little on what they do for the hair. If that is too difficult for you, take a copy of the ingredients and ask your doctor. It is better to get a shampoo that works for you rather than paying good money for something that shows no results at the end of the day.
