It’s true to say it was recently Men’s Health International Day and there have been numerous articles and webinars marking the occasion. One topic that rippled through this occasion was that losing your hair is natural. That may be so but does it have to be permanent? Many men worry about hair loss. Fact. Studies show that psychological stress is often one of the main reasons for this condition. The right products can prevent or delay hair loss and get your scalp healthy again. In honour of men’s health, I thought we’d talk further about hair loss.
What would you choose?
Allow me to give you the conclusion first: with the right products, hair loss doesn’t have to be a big deal. I am hoping that men like myself realise that choosing to take accessible oral medication is a big decision. While it is an effective treatment for hair loss, it also (like most medications) carries some risks that you should consider. The most common side effect of taking oral hair loss medication is sexual dysfunction. In some cases, men taking the medication have reported erectile dysfunction, decreased libido and ejaculatory problems. There is evidence to show certain medications can also cause infertility in men who take them long-term. The drug can also lower sperm counts in men. There are also some rare but serious risks associated, including a potentially fatal condition called "male breast cancer." This rare form of cancer affects only men who have taken the medication for five years or more, so if you're considering using this drug to treat your hair loss, make sure you follow all instructions carefully and stop taking it as soon as your symptoms improve. If they don't improve after two months on the well-known drug, talk to your doctor about other treatment options that might be right for you. This particular medication that the FDA has approved to treat hair loss in men is also used to treat an enlarged prostate. If you're considering taking medication, it's important that you understand the risks associated with taking it. It became apparent that so many men were suffering in silence because they didn’t want to talk about their hair loss. Hair loss can be scary, but it doesn't have to be.
Have we forgotten about natural remedies?
There are a lot of ways to treat hair loss naturally and inexpensively, without any side effects. I was one of these men who kept it quiet and to silence it, I went straight for the medication option. One of the first things I should have tried was apple cider vinegar rinses. To mix one part apple cider vinegar with two parts water and rinse hair with this solution after shampooing. This would have helped cleanse my scalp and encourage healthy hair growth. I also read about applying aloe vera gel to the scalp twice a day. Aloe vera has many healing properties, including helping to regenerate damaged skin cells and encouraging new cell growth. If your hair has been thinning for a long time, you may want to consider using castor oil on your scalp before bedtime every night for at least three months. Castor oil helps stimulate blood flow in the scalp, encouraging healthy new hair growth.

A hair transplant was an option that I had considered for years but a lot of clinics refrain from advertising that it is not a permanent cure for hair loss. It may give you some hair that you want and could be used as a solution to cover bald patches. You can see from video diaries and articles that hair transplants are a painful process; the surgery itself is painful and very exhausting both mentally and physically. Going through this expensive, long process can cost a fortune. However, I was determined enough to get my own hair back but what I should have done was to accept the natural options that do exist - including hair replacement systems.
