Therapy options for hair loss

First and foremost: while lost hair does not grow back in cases of hereditary hair loss, in other cases of hair loss there is a good chance that hair will grow back! For this reason, cases of hereditary hair loss must be treated as quickly as possible in order to maintain the remaining hair and strengthen the thinner hair.

There are many medications that are supposed to partly maintain the current condition of hair. On the other hand, there may be undesirable side effects such as virility disorders.

Important: you must therefore rely on purely natural ingredients (no chemicals) contained in some medications and nutritional supplements. They all have one thing in common: if you stop taking them, hair loss will continue.

There is one thing you must understand: all these treatments primarily serve to prevent or stop hair loss; in some cases hair may grow back (in cases of diffuse and spot baldness), but it is difficult to predict whether and to what extent hair will grow back. When discontinuing the various treatments, hair loss may start again, especially if it is androgenetic hair loss.

Androgenic hair loss often begins with the formation of a receding hairline or a tonsure and at the advanced stages, it results in baldness.

In theory, even with complete baldness, there is the hope of reactivating hair roots, because a person who is bald has just as many hair roots as someone with a full head of hair. The hair is just so short that it is almost completely invisible.

It may be possible to make lost hair grow back in certain situations (especially in diffuse and spot baldness), but this is slow and requires patience. Hair cannot grow back within 4 weeks – if at all - as the resting phase (called the telogen phase) of the hair lasts up to 4 months.

The success of hair growth preparations or those against hair loss can therefore only be realistically assessed after 4-6 months.
