Do Hair Loss Shampoos and Conditioners Actually Work?
When you are trying to restore lost hair, shampoo and conditioner often seem like an obvious approach – you rub the stuff into your hair every day, so it surely should have some effect if the correct shampoo is used… right?
Many shampoos claim a wide variety of methods to block or reserve hair-loss. Alpecin famously claimed that the caffeine within their shampoo could thicken hair, leading to a protracted battle with an advertising watchdog. Others claim to make hormonal changes in order to slow down or reverse hair loss.
The fact of the matter is, there is no miracle cure for hair loss. Many of the random shampoos available in stores or online have not been subjected to the extensive clinical trials that more mainstream hair-loss treatment options have undergone.
As a result, these shampoos and conditioners cannot be recommended as a form of treatment. Even though many have at least some basis in science, or offer some benefit, the results and evidence remain inconclusive.
While shampoos may be out of the question (short of making your hair appear thicker through volumizing shampoos), there are physical treatment methods that can help you achieve more immediate, and importantly, lasting results. A process known as skin micropigmentation can help give a fuller-looking head of hair to men with thinning hair. The process also provides bald men with a clean-shaven look requiring no maintenance or upkeep.
Scalp micropigmentation works by injecting small amounts of pigment into the skin to create the appearance of hair. This procedure is done over 2 or 3 treatment sessions, usually spaced about one week apart each. Importantly, there are no significant side effects during or after treatment.
