Comparing the Types of Hair Growth Treatments

Comparing the Types of Hair Loss Treatments available in the market? 

Excessive hair loss can be distressing and a total ruin to your self-confidence. According to hair growth experts, the main causes of hair loss are the existence of  DHT, a hormone formed by the enzyme 5-alpha reductase (5AR) on your regular testosterone hormones, to form DHT. Complicated technical terms? We will cover these in our later videos.

Natural remedies can reduce DHT levels, and prevent its binding effects to the follicles of your hair. Unlike prescription drugs, natural hair-loss remedies can be safer and better when it comes to results. The risks of side effects and complications are close-to-none with these types of treatments. 

Let us compare the pros and cons of the common 5 different types of hair loss treatments available out there in the market and have an overview of what might work best for you. As always, these are brief mentions and future videos and training programs will explore into each treatment in detail.

The Food and Drug Administration, FDA, has approved a low-level laser device as a treatment for hereditary hair loss in men and women. High-level laser devices are used for destroying tissue, example, the removal of unwanted hairs. Low-level laser therapy, on the other hand, heals damaged tissues. They stimulate hair growth by increasing blood flow and increasing oxygen flow to the area, which stimulates the hair follicle, causing weak or thin hair to become stronger and thicker. 

However, when it comes to LLLT, there are still insufficient studies to prove that it improves hair density as they are lacking studies to show its long-term effects. The treatment requires you to visit the doctor’s office for about 3 times a week, over a span of 5 to 6 months. The treatments are also expensive, setting you back by the thousands. Are they guaranteed to work? Well, here at Genhair, we leave it as an open-ended question with multiple open-ended answers.

  • More studies are needed to show long-term effects

Why is Genhair invented? 

Genhair is invented because most of the treatments for hair loss available in the market has some sort of disadvantages and risks of side effects. Many people still do not know that natural herbs and botanical extracts that has been used for centuries since the ancient days to effectively treat scalp problems, aids hair growth and strengthens hair loss. Since it is natural, there is no risk of having since effects compared to taking western drugs and medication. 

Where did this natural concept come from? 

Jessie, the founder of Genhair got the hair loss recipe that was passed down from her grandma who has always been active in using chinese herbs in many forms. The family lineage have always been using this recipe from generation to generation for treating and slowing down the genetic hair loss from the family. Through many years of research improved the chinese herbs recipe further with other plant extracts and herbs from Ayurvedic treatments. 

Ayurvedic Treatment concept for Loss of Hair

Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is one of the world's oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. Demand for non-invasive and ‘safer’ treatment methods such as Ayurvedic and Indian herbs. In Ayurveda, loss of hair is a straight by-product of your bone tissue quality. It is a natural consequence of weakness in the bone tissue. Hair texture, according to Ayurveda, will be based on your constitutional imbalances. It is essential that you know about the imbalances / balances and prakriti in your constitution in order to devise a remedy. There are many natural treatments in Ayurveda for safer and simpler re-growth of hair, and these are quite inexpensive.

Chinese Treatment concept for Loss of Hair

Chinese medicines have been used for hair growth in both sexes, and may often be extremely useful for supporting the re-growth of hair and stopping further loss of hair. Healthy hair, in Chinese medicine, depends on a solid flow of blood and qi for nourishing the scalp. The flow can be interrupted with either a deficiency of blood or qi. Either of this can lead to insufficient nourishment of the scalp.  While hormonal imbalance or stress can result often from stagnation of blood. A variety of Chinese herbs may be used to enhance blood flow to the hair follicles and take care of the causes for hair loss.
