Nutritional supplements have been used for many years to help reverse or slow down hair loss. There are numerous supplements that may improve the strength and quality of your hair or help reduce hair loss including essential fatty acids, MSM, inositol, biotin, vitamin B complex, raw thymus glandular, zinc, vitamins C and E, coenzyme Q10, copper, grape seed extract and silica. While these supplements might work for some in halting further hair loss, or regrowing some hair, they are not likely effective in combating genetic hair loss, such as male pattern baldness. The only known and proven solution for permanent or genetic hair loss is hair transplantation/ restoration.
So, while nutritional supplements may help treat your hair loss, you should always consult with your Trichologist before using any of these health supplements.
If you’re experiencing hair loss, speak with your physician first to rule out any underlying medical conditions and to gain a better understanding of your hair loss. If you suffer from permanent hair loss, DHD suggests you visit your Trichologist right away to determine your condition and get the proper treatment.
