Finding the Best Hair Growth ProductPosted in Hair Tips
Is your hair thinning, damaged, or just won’t grow very much? If so you’ve probably thought about trying a hair growth product to help out. There are so many now it’s hard to keep track. But here are a few hints on how to find the best hair growth products for you.
- Determine what your main hair issue is
Whatever you’re dealing with from full on patchy hair loss to maybe just wanting to grow long hair even longer, there is likely a product around for your specific need.
- Drug vs All Natural
So if you’re wanting something that will literally regrow lost hair, there are only two real options both of which are FDA approved drugs – Minoxidil, and Propecia. They are proven to work, but both can cause unwanted side-effects, and only Minoxidil is sold over the counter.There are many, many all natural options ranging from vitamin supplements, to scalp treatments, to shampoos that claim they can grow hair. Like anything else, some are great with clinical trials and scientific research that they can be effective, and some are lousy with nothing but baseless claims. The key selling point for a lot of the natural hair growth products is that they contain saw palmetto. Saw palmetto is a botanical ingredient that has been shown to act as an anti-DHT agent, thus helping reduce hair loss.
- Topical vs Internal
There’s no right or wrong choice with this one, it’s simply whichever you feel the most comfortable using, however using both an oral vitamin supplement and some kind of topical treatment is probably the best way to go. Conventional logic says that applying something directly to the hair follicle is the most efficient way to solve an issue. But a hair vitamin can actually correct nutritional issues that may be causing hair concerns. Just using a shampoo is probably the lest effective method because you rub it in, and then immediately wash it back off.
The simple answer to finding the best hair growth product is that since everyone’s hair issues are specific to them, the best for one person may not be the best for the next. There are some that are generally regarded as good, and those are typically easy to find over the web. User reviews are a great tool here, probably best to avoid a product without any positive feedback.
