Are there any alternatives to hair loss treatment?

There are many different kinds of hair loss treatment available these days, some of them painful and expensive (i.e. certain kinds of hair transplants) and others less so. These treatments have varying success rates, as they depend of course on the patient and their particular hair loss condition.

Not everyone wants to put themselves through hair loss treatment, however, which is why there are many alternatives available. These include:

Human hair wigs – These wigs have come a long way in the last few years, meaning they are now so realistic that no one will be able to tell you’re wearing one. They are comfortable to wear and you can choose from hundreds of styles to suit you.

The Intralace System – This is a hair replacement treatment, but one that works similarly to hair extensions. A breathable mesh is fitted between your existing hair and your scalp, allowing additional human hair to be added. It looks natural, is made of breathable materials and can be washed and styled as normal.

Medi Connections – Similarly to other methods, Medi Connections are a kind of very fine hair extensions used to cover smaller areas of thinning or balding.

Head bandannas and wraps – Some people prefer to keep things as simple as possible, choosing a colourful, attractive wrap or bandanna to cover their heads whilst their hair grows back.
