Is it possible to grow back my hair

Hair loss can occur for a number of reasons. Whether the source of the problem is an underlying medical condition, stress, anxiety, or just plain old hormones, there are countless snake oil salesmen touting a “cure”. But is it all pseudo-science, or can hair grow back?

How can I grow my hair back?

I couldn’t help but chuckle when I spotted a recent commercial claiming that by applying a little lotion, you can grow hair follicles on your skin.  This company obviously didn’t seem to understand that we all are born with all the hair follicles we will ever have. While we can’t grow back hair follicles, we might consider looking at the problem in a different light.

Sometimes our hair follicles become dormant, and stop producing new hair. This is what usually gets us asking, how can I grow my hair back? Before we recommend steps that you can take towards growing back thinning hair, it’s important to identify the cause of hair loss.

Can hair grow back after alopecia?

Alopecia is quite a generic term used to describe a variety of conditions involving hair loss.  For example, alopecia areata is a medical condition, which can be caused by autoimmune disorder. In this case, it is not unusual for the body to recover naturally, and for hair to grow back where bald spots have developed.

Androgenic alopecia is also known as male pattern baldness. The cause of androgenic alopecia is usually rooted in hormonal or genetic factors.  This type of hair loss is common for men and is a normal, albeit stressful, condition.

If you are genetically predisposed to lose your hair, it is unlikely that you will grow it back to full thickness. However, by supplementing your diet with Viviscal Man to nourish hair from within, you can help to promote existing growth. Having healthier and thicker hair can help to reduce the appearance of any bald spots.

How to reactivate dormant hair follicles

While it may not be realistic to completely counter the effects of male pattern baldness, there are plenty of ways that we can reinvigorate our scalp and stimulate any hair follicles.

A simple scalp massage can be a great way to stimulate blood flow to your scalp. This helps to deliver the vitamins and nutrients required for healthy hair growth to the follicles. However, no scalp massage will be effective if your diet is missing the ingredients for the optimum hair growth cycle.

The importance of practicing proper nutrition cannot be overstated. Any topical hair loss topical treatment will be merely a Band-Aid on a problem that is rooted within our bodies. Only by nourishing hair from within can we make a change that will last.

Getting the good stuff to grow my hair back
