What hair loss treatments are there?
Hair loss is a subject that is rarely discussed. It is therefore not known to everyone that you can do something against hair loss and that there are solutions for home use. Below we describe 4 treatments that are scientifically proven and that you can use yourself. These products can be combined for an even better effect:
- Shampoo and conditioner against hair loss
- Lotion against hair loss
- Neutraceutical against hair loss
Shampoo and conditioner against hair loss
A hair growth stimulating shampoo and conditioner forms the basis of a hair loss treatment. It ensures a healthy scalp so that hair can grow healthily and contains various ingredients that stimulate hair growth. Using a shampoo against hair loss also ensures stronger and thicker hair. Read here why a shampoo is a good treatment for hair loss.
In addition, these products are easy to use and do not require any extra effort for you. You only need to change your current products for a hair growth stimulating shampoo and conditioner. A good basis! Replacing your current products can also have other benefits.
Almost all normal shampoos at the local drugstore are based on cheap, industrial cleansers that are actually too degreasing. This can dry out the scalp too quickly and make the hair greasy again. Ingredients you definitely do not want in your shampoo are phthalates, SLS and other sulfates, silicones and parabens. In the products of the Hair Growth Specialist these ingredients are not found.

How to use a shampoo:
- Wash your hair at least 3 to 5 times a week
- Let it sink in for at least 3 minutes
- Rinse it out and nourish with a conditioner
Benefit: Easy to include in daily routine
Disadvantage: minimum of 3 to 5 times washing per week
A lotion works more intensively than a shampoo or conditioner because a lotion is a "leave in" product. Because a hair growth stimulating lotion is not rinsed out, the active ingredients have longer time to be absorbed into the scalp. Also, a lotion** works well with a "local" hair problem. A lotion is namely easy to apply to, for example, only the crown, the inlets or other places where the hair is visibly thinning. Usually you apply a hair growth stimulating lotion to your scalp twice a day.
How to use a lotion:
- Apply 2 to 3 sprays twice a day
- Do not wash your hair until at least 3 hours after applying the lotion.
Benefit: Good to use "locally", for example on the crown or inlets
Disadvantage: longer hair can be slightly greasy from lotion.
A dietary supplement specifically formulated to combat hair loss is a good basic treatment for hair loss. Our supplements contain several powerful ingredients that naturally inhibit hair loss. Difference with a "normal" dietary supplement is that the ingredients in a hair growth stimulating supplement are specifically formulated to promote hair growth and therefore have different/higher dosages.
In addition, they contain the most important building blocks for good, healthy hair growth from the inside. A lack of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients can certainly play a role in hair loss. With a supplement for hair loss you can be sure that you get the right vitamins and minerals.
The advantage of a nutritional supplement is that it is easy to use. However, it may take a little longer before you see results. This is because a supplement works from the inside out and is not applied directly to the scalp, like a lotion for example. Supplements are suitable for all stages of hair loss. Read more about the benefits of a supplement in this article.
- Take 1 tablet, 2 to 3 times a day
- Quantity of tablets can be tapered off as hair loss is stabilized.
Benefit: Easy to use
Last but not least: Hair growth stimulating laser therapy by means of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). Since 2007, hair growth stimulating laser therapy has been clinically tested in both men and women and therefore officially recognized by the FDA. Since then, it has been gaining popularity.
This is partly because laser therapy is suitable for almost everyone, as it is easy and safe to use and works on all types of hair loss. The most practical form of laser therapy is the laser helmet, because it is wireless. This allows you to wear the helmet during normal daily activities. Although the costs of a laser helmet and hair growth stimulating laser therapy are initially higher, the long-term costs are lower. Also, hair growth stimulating laser therapy is good to use in combination with other hair growth stimulating products for an even better result.
Laser therapy also helps a hair transplant be more successful. The healing process is better and faster. In addition, the quality of the hair is better than without a post-treatment. A laser helmet is effective as a stand-alone treatment for almost all stages of hair loss.

- 2 times a week for 20 minutes
- Easy to use, the laser helmet itself indicates when the treatment is finished and counts the number of treatments.
Benefit: suitable for all types of hair loss, wireless
Disadvantage: none, laser therapy has no side effects
Regrowth of hair vs. inhibition of hair loss: preventing is better than curing!
Having the right expectations is important. A realistic time frame to evaluate the initial effect of a hair loss treatment is 3 to 6 months. You will then initially notice that your hair loss is decreasing. The full effect often doesn't show itself until 12 months. Making hair "regrow" is generally more difficult to achieve than combating hair loss and thinning hair.
When you're quick, then retaining the existing hair will be easier than when the hair loss has been going on for longer. In addition, regrowth will be faster and easier for some than for others. This depends on the cause of hair loss and therefore the right treatment for each person is different. Curious about which treatment is right for you? Check it out here or ask for personal advice!
