Thinning hair is an unfortunate reality for many older people. The unwelcome development of hair that begins falling out can begin in the teens and proceed slowly or at a fast rate. There are few cosmetic conditions that can make a person look older than their actual age than hair loss.
Short of a hair transplant, most people turn to various over-the-counter products that claim to restore hair with varying degrees of effectiveness. For most people, these products can only slow the rate of hair loss at best. The hair will continue to thin, although at a somewhat slower rate. New hair restoration products and techniques are being developed to help actually regrow hair that has become noticeably thinner. Some have shown great promise at restoring hair that has begun to thin and fall out.
A Look at Topical Treatments
New solutions and shampoos are becoming available that can actually stimulate hair growth and improve the condition of existing hair. Some of these products include Formula 82M and Formula 82S Shampoo. What is great about these products is they can be used at home as part of a personalized hair restoration treatment plan.
