We all want to take care of our bodies, our health and our outward appearance. Annual checkups to our doctors, dentists and the like become part of our routine – so why should the hair on heads be any different? Hair fall is not an easy condition to deal with, affects a lot of men and women according to the American Hair Loss Association and it causes a lot of stress for both men and women suffering from genetic hair loss or other types. The question that often gets asked is – when should I start taking action again my hair loss and being a treatment regimen?

The Cause of Hair Loss is Not Created Equal

The answer isn’t so generic as it depends on many factors. Firstly, it is crucial that the cause of the condition is determined first before any treatment options are considered, as genetic hair loss is treated differently from other causes. Sometimes the cause is not genetic (male or female pattern baldness) and could be pointing to a much more serious illness or condition. If a person is losing their hair at an uncomfortable or rapid pace, it is important to visit a doctor to determine what is causing the it. Otherwise, one could start a treatment that is intended for genetic hair loss and blocking DHT (like Revivogen) when in actuality they are experiencing hair loss from stress or malnutrition – and therefore the treatment would most likely not be effective.

As far as when to start considering a hair loss treatment, the dermatologists behind Revivogen recommend starting a hair loss treatment option as soon as possible. They have found early detection and treatment was ideal for preventing future hair loss on the scalp. Once the hair is affected by dihydrotestosterone present in the follicles for a long enough period of time, this makes the treatments less effective over time. And, as they say, once it’s gone … it’s gone. Consider stopping genetic hair loss in its tracks before it’s too late.
