These 5 Common Hair Loss Treatments Can Slow Down Nature

Hormone therapy. Sometimes, as in the case of individuals with androgenetic alopecia (commonly called male pattern baldness), hormonal imbalances can cause hair loss. Hormone therapy decreases the amount of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) within the body to slow or reverse hair loss. In lay terms, all people need a balance of hormones. When someone has too much of one half, it causes balding or thinning hair. Hormone therapy involves ingesting or topically applying estrogen and progesterone to bring hormones back in balance.
