This article will give you information on the different choices available to you today. Genetics plays an important role in hair loss in people. You have probably heard from people that the loss of hair is handed down from the mother's side of the family if you are a man or from the father's side if you are a woman. Research scientists have now accumulated much knowledge on the specifics of genetics and hair loss. What has become clear to them is baldness has a genetic basis. Unfortunately, the way it is inherited is still unclear. Researchers have found a gene they named the "hairless gene" in mice, therefore; cementing the genetic factor in baldness. It is important to be aware the hair loss industry includes many gimmicks and some outright scams. If you have seen ads for products or pills claiming to stop your hair loss, you know this is a huge industry. The reality is the Federal Drug Administration has only approved two drugs for hair loss treatment. Of course we all wish to believe a secret cure is out there and we will eventually find it. The reality is there is no complete cure for hair loss and the FDA approved drugs just slow or stop the process as long as the medication continues to be taken. Many people feel isolated and ashamed of their hair loss. Joining an online forum for people experiencing hair loss can be a good way to talk to others who are going through the same thing. People on online forums can share different things they have tried which have worked for them as well as those that haven't. By talking to people who share the same problem as you, it will make you realize that you are not alone and that there's nothing to be ashamed of.

Today we use advance methods of transplant in which up to four follicular units of hair are transplanted in their natural groups. This achieves the natural appearance due to the mimicking of natural hair. In life it is usually a good idea to work on changing what can be changed and accept what cannot be changed. If you have tried different methods to help with hair loss but find it it useless, acceptance might be your best bet. These days baldness has become a fashion statement for many men, including many famous celebrities. For men it helps to know that many women do not find baldness unattractive.
