Are you out there wondering if there is any help for hair loss? Well, you don't need to just sit there and ponder, because there is indeed help. There are products available in grocery stores, drug stores, mail orders and on the Internet. If you have been looking at yourself in the mirror every morning, running your hands through your hair and being amazed and frightened at the amount of hair that falls out, don't worry.

There are several options you can choose from when looking into help for hair loss. If your hair loss is due to genetics (as 95 percent of hair loss is), there is no instant way to stop the process. Once it starts, your body will never quit what it's doing. Therefore, if you choose to go with topical or oral treatments, you will have to continue to take them as long as you want to continue to have hair. Stop the treatment and hair falls out and stops growing again.

Help for Hair Loss Is Out There

Now, I don't mean to make it sound grim. It isn't. Many of the continuing treatments are either lotions that you rub on your scalp once or twice a day, or pills that you take. Neither of these are highly time consuming. They can, however, get a little expensive over time.

If you do not like the idea of having to do these treatments every day for years and years, you may want to look into transplant surgery. This is where hair from the sides and back of your head is taken out and transplanted to the balding patches. The best way to describe why this works is to say that the areas that continue to grow do so because they "remember" how to grow, while the ones in the balding areas don't. This is a good help for hair loss, to move the hair that "remembers" to the bare spots.
