Treatment and Management


Treatment options for hair loss depend on the underlying cause and include

  • Medications: Over-the-counter treatments like minoxidil (Rogaine) and prescription solutions such as finasteride for men are common.
  • Therapeutic Options: Including steroid injections for areas of inflammation or tattooing to cover up bald areas.
  • Surgical Procedures: Such as hair transplants, which involve moving hair from a thickly grown area of the scalp to thinning or balding areas.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Managing stress, improving nutrition, and avoiding hairstyles that pull on the hair can also help manage and prevent further hair loss.

Preventive measures mainly involve addressing the potentially modifiable risk factors like diet, stress management, and careful handling of the hair. For genetic conditions, while prevention might not be feasible, early intervention can significantly slow down the progression.
