Seattle, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/04/2013 -- Today hairlosshaven.com published an article on hair growth products and why they have become so controversial lately.
A recent post on hair growth products have stirred some controversy amongst some of the site visitors. The article talks about both the FDA approved drugs for treating hair loss as well as the natural hair loss treatments that are being promoted today. Just recently Propecia has been in the news for its potentially permanent side effects. "Propecia basically causes a permanent loss in testosterone in a small percentage of people who use the product. The same way that it helps to block DHT it also prevents the natural production of testosterone in a small percentage of it's users." Says the author.
"This could cause permanent issues for some people. When this does happen many opt for testosterone replacement therapy which seems to clear up the problem. However they have to continue the therapy for the rest of their lives." says James Briggs. The author doesn't just focus on the negative aspects of the FDA approved treatments. The article also focuses on natural treatments and their pitfalls.
While some natural treatments are relatively effective at combating hair loss most of the natural treatments being peddled on the Internet have a somewhat low success rate. "Natural herbal ingredients just aren't as strong as their drug counterparts. That means that you probably won't suffer the same long-term side effects, but you also are less likely to successfully combat hair loss." says the author.
That's why a select few companies have decided to combine both natural ingredients as well as an FDA approved topical treatment called minoxidil. "Yes, like finasteride, minoxidil is also a drug but it is available over-the-counter and it is a topical solution and not something that you have to ingest like Propecia." says Briggs.
The author goes on to point out that natural treatments are less likely to work because of user error. "You have to take these particular type of treatments very consistently if you're to get any kind of results from using them. Most people will use hair loss treatments for a week or two without missing a day then go two days without using the product at all. That's not how it works. You have to consistently take the product." says the author.
"My suggestion to anyone who feels they might miss a day or two of using a treatment is to just find a hair transplant surgeon instead. As long as you don't keep your hair extremely short (shorter than an inch long) most people won't be able tell you had a hair transplant in the first place." says James Briggs.
