Back in the bad old days, the only way to deal with hair loss is to put on an act-you put on a wig or a toupee and call it a day Well, fast forward several generations and we now have more options on the table when it comes to dealing with male pattern baldness. Options range from surgical methods like hair transplants and hair plugs to pharmaceutical approaches like Propecia to topical medical solutions like minoxidil. So how do you find a hair loss cure that works? Well, the definition of a cure is that it must work-it must get rid of the condition you are addressing.
Try out as many options as possible
Since you wouldn’t know whether a solution works beforehand, you need to open your mind to many different options for treating your hair loss. You have to categorize the options you are trying so you can switch to another category of hair loss cure. Chances are, if a particular treatment within a category doesn’t pan out, you need to switch to another category pronto since wasting anymore time, effort, and money on other treatments within the failed treatment’s category will probably result in disappointment. Still, the key to this whole process is to keep an open mind and try out as many different options as possible. It is like throwing spaghetti at the wall, you need to keep trying until you identify one that works.
Scale up within a category that works
As mentioned above, hair loss cures come in different categories. There are surgical cures like hair transplantation or hair plugs. There are topical solutions like minoxidil. There are oral solutions that treat DHT levels like Propecia. If you notice that one particular treatment works for you, explore other solutions within the hair loss cure’s category. By scaling up in the category, you are trying to ensure that you will find the most optimal solution to your hair loss problem.
Be patient but pay attention
Unless you opt for surgery, most of the hair loss solutions you see on the market take time to produce results. You have to be patient, but this doesn’t mean you have to keep throwing money at a solution and walk away disappointed after a few months. Instead, be patient but keep an eye on the results of the treatment. Af the very least, the hair loss cure you’re trying out should arrest hair loss. At the very best, it should replace your lost hair. If you see anything less than these two scenarios, ditch the method you’re using and try another solution.
