Hair loss and hair thinning can be a very natural part of ageing and by age 60 approximately 60% of men and 80% of women suffer some degree of noticeable hair loss.
Though most hair loss is natural and not a health concern, it can still be very distressing for those affected. There are effective treatments to slow hair loss and stimulate hair growth such as shampoos and creams that can help strengthen hair as well as provide a good environment for hair growth.
There are cases where hair loss is a concern, and you should talk to a GP if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Very sudden hair loss
- Developing bald patches
- Losing hair in clumps
- Head is itchy and has a burning sensation
While most hair loss is due to ageing, male pattern baldness, or female pattern baldness, other types of hair loss can be caused by a number of factors. Hair loss can be caused by:
- Cancer treatment
- Weight loss
- Iron deficiency
- Prescription medication
At Rightdose Pharmacy we supply a range of shampoos and treatments to help with natural hair loss that can either be used alone or in conjunction with prescription hair loss treatments. These are designed to help strengthen existing hair as well as provide a healthy environment for hair growth.
