Hair Loss (Alopecia)

Everyone experiences hair loss at some point in their lives, and some types are more common than others. The most common type is androgenetic alopecia, better known as male pattern baldness. This tends to affect around half of men. Although hair loss, sometimes known as alopecia, is a natural process in most circumstances, it can be very distressing to the person involved. Some people may find it affects their self image and esteem, in which case there are ways to slow or prevent hair loss. If you are concerned about your hair loss, speak to your doctor and they will be able to identify the cause of it and advise you on the best hair loss treatment for you.

There are several types of alopecia treatment available to buy online, including tablets or a foam which you apply directly to the affected area. This foam is a type of hair growth medication which can actually stimulate more growth in follicles, and so help you grow back your hair if you are concerned about a receding hairline. Certain types of hair loss medication should only be used by men.
