Have you started noticing more hair clogging the shower drain or perhaps on your pillow in the mornings? Are you searching for a solution to regrow your hair and cover up those thinning areas on your scalp? The American Hair Loss Association estimates 40% of women and 85% of men will have noticeable hair loss by the time they are fifty years old. It’s no surprise that the hair loss treatment market is worth a whopping $5 billion a year. A word of caution though before you go and grab yourself some miracle hair regrow formula or hair-thickening vitamins. There is little scientific evidence to support some of the claims marketers make about some of these products. This article introduces you to a clinically proven product, Maxogaine, and discusses other products which may help improve hair health in general.
Shampoos And Hair Elixirs Do They Really Work?
Biotin is one of the most common ingredients contained in some of the hair growth shampoos on the market today. Biotin is a B-vitamin found in liver, egg yolks and yeast which scientists believe strengthens nail and hair proteins.
Another common ingredient is Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) blockers which act to limit the effects of DHT, a derivative of the male hormone testosterone. DHT combines with proteins in the hair follicles and forces the strands to reduce in size and prevent their ability to grow healthy hair. DHT blockers prevent DHT from affecting hair follicles, therefore, maintaining healthy hair.
What Is Maxogaine?
Maxogaine is an over-the-counter treatment for hair loss in men and women. It contains the active ingredient Minoxidil, which is approved by the UK’s regulatory body, The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MRHA). It’s also approved by the US’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA). What do the approvals mean for men and women seeking treatment options for hair loss? Well, for one, it means the drug has undergone testing to prove that it works for the conditions manufacturer’s say it treats. Secondly, the testing ensures the drug is safe for use.
Maxogaine contains 3% minoxidil solution and comes as a solution for topical application onto the scalp.
How Do Maxogaine And Minoxidil Work?
Minoxidil is the active ingredient in Maxogaine. The drug acts as a vasodilator on application to the scalp. It expands the blood vessels in the scalp to improve blood flow to your scalp and hair follicles. Improved blood flow delivers the nutrients hair follicles need to thrive. It also reverses the shrinkage of hair follicles as they receive more nutrients and oxygen.
Maxogaine also has a positive impact on the hair growth cycle, effectively resetting it and lengthening the growth stage of the process. The result is thicker and healthier hair.
How Do I Apply Maxogaine?
Maxogaine is a solution in liquid form. It is a topical treatment which you apply to your scalp twice a day on dry hair. Do not dilute it to make it last longer or else; it becomes less effective. In the box, you will find a dropper which you can use to apply the solution following the instructions that come with the medication.
Can I Use Other Products Along With Maxogaine?
When it comes to maintaining healthy hair, often less is more. It may be tempting to throw everything you can at your hair problem and hope something sticks, but that is not the best approach to take. Most ‘hair growth’ shampoos on the market today lack the ingredients to deliver the change they promise you in glossy magazines and TV. Also, there are specific causes of hair loss, and without tackling the cause, it’s unlikely that a shampoo or conditioner can reverse hair loss.
So, in light of all this smart marketing, what can you do to maintain healthy hair? Firstly, pick a shampoo or conditioner that will boost the appearance of your hair as it is now. There are volumising shampoos which generate more volume and make your hair look thicker.
Next, find a thickening serum that increases the diameter of the hair shaft (hair shaft diameter shrinks with age). Serums form a semi-permanent coating around the hair shaft which create a plumping effect. Combining a shampoo and conditioner to add volume will help you look your best while using proven treatments to regrow your hair.
There are many different causes of hair loss, some temporary where the hair grows back while others are permanent. If you want to keep hair loss under control, you must take action as soon as you notice an increase in hair thinning. Maxogaine will help slow down the rate of hair loss or even promote new growth. However, getting a professional consultation may be the best way to go if facing hair loss.
