CHESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 21, 2013) - The condition, which involves thinning hair on the crown of the head meeting with hair receding from the sides of the forehead, affects millions of people every year.
In fact, an Australian study demonstrated that 73.5% of males and 57% of females experience pattern baldness by the age of 80.
A range of thinning hair solutions is offered by Rowlands Online Pharmacy, which has also provided a list of tips to support healthy hair care and help alleviate pattern baldness problems.
Healthy Hair Care Tip 1
Have a professional hair care analysis done to determine if your hair loss is due to genetic issues or medical issues. Stress, poor diet and certain medications can all contribute to hair loss and can all be detected during this type of analysis. If your hair loss stems from nutritional issues, adding certain B vitamin supplements to your daily routine may be all you need.
Healthy Hair Care Tip 2
If hair loss has become visible, you may want to add a hair growth product such as Regaine to your hair care regime. This type of treatment is available over the counter and works by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles in the scalp which encourage new hair growth and help prevent ongoing hair loss.
Healthy Hair Care Tip 3
In extreme cases, laser hair loss treatments are available. Again, these treatments work by stimulating blood flow in the scalp to encourage new hair growth. A series of laser treatments are usually performed over the course of three months to one year and each one takes around 30 minutes. Laser treatments are effective for both men and women.
Research is ongoing in the study of hair thinning and hair loss. A spokesperson for Rowlands Online Pharmacy said: "We support the many scientific studies into the causes and treatments of thinning hair.
"We know how prevalent the problem is as our large chain of pharmacies handle hundreds of inquiries every day from men and women. We're happy to provide a range of hair thinning solutions to improve what can be quite a distressing problem."
Pharmacies such as Rowlands, which also offers the Rowlands Celebrity Slim to promote weight loss, has pharmacists available by email, phone or in person to answer questions and provide advice.
