I have very find hair and although I am told by hair stylists that I have a lot of it, it appears very thin on top. I don’t think hair transplant surgery is the right procedure for me. Do you know of any hair loss treatment that will give me more hair to cover the wide part of my scalp showing through the hair? I have tried Rogaine which worked temporarily despite continued use. I spent a lot of money on a hair piece alopecia wig that is not comfortable and I believe looks obvious. It is very difficult to hide the wide part with anything and I do not like the short and spiky hair with bands that are the mainstay of hair pieces. I hope you can help and please be specific if you have any hair loss solutions.
You have mentioned a number of possibilities already however, there are a few more. Sadly, none of them are miracle cures or perfect solutions, but are worth considering.
Non-Surgical Hair Loss Treatments
Propecia for men only (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxidil) are FDA approved hair growth drugs and when used together, they may boost your chances of hair regrowth.
Ketoconazole hair loss shampoo such as Nizoral and Revita may be helpful adjunct treatments given the “weak” DHT blocking properties of ketoconazole.
Laser hair treatment has been FDA “cleared” however, in my opinion, not enough evidence publicly exists for me to recommend it.
“All-natural” hair loss products are often overhyped in the media but after doing extensive research on many of the big names, there is only anecdotal evidence at best that they can successfully treat baldness. Some of these products will even include minoxidil and call them “FDA Approved”.
Hair Piece / Alopecia Wig
The alopecia wig (hair piece) is an option but often times require a lot of maintenance, a hefty replacement cost, and the worry that it won’t look natural.
Hair Restoration Surgery
Hair transplant surgery can be great for those who are qualified, have realiistic expectations, and have considered the benefits, limitations, and risks associated with surgery. An elite surgeon can transplant hair in and around existing natural hair leaving you with more hair density than you started with. Whether or not you are a candidate should be determined by an elite hair transplant surgeon.
You may want to consider concealers such as dermatch, toppik, or nanogen, which are applied topically to mask the appearance of loss and add to the illusion of density.
I hope this helps.
