Hairloss Q&A

What causes hair loss?

Hair shedding or thinning can be caused by many different factors, with most patients presenting with multiple factors.  Age, Hormonal imbalances or fluctuation, Nutritional deficiencies , Medical conditions (thyroid disease, iron deficiency) ,Physiologic stressors (surgery or medications) ,Psychologic stress ,Genetics and family history ,Hair treatments, chemicals and heat. Most of these are unavoidable and unfortunately there are not many treatment options for hair loss and most hair loss is a combination of the mentioned risk factors. 

How can I treat my hair loss?

Not all hairloss is the same, therefore there are many forms of treatment depending on the extent of your hair loss and how agressive you'd like to be. Speak to your physician to get the best advise and results. 

Do hair supplements really work? 

While there are multiple hair supplements out there, they are not all created equal.  we reccomend Nutrafol which is a clinically effective supplement that targets the underlying problem in your hair loss. With four seperate supplements including Nutrafol women, Men, Womens Balance and Nutrafol postpartum you can be sure you are taking the right supplements for your needs.
