Why Hair Growth Shampoo May Not Be Best for Your Condition

Woman shampooing hairMany patients suffering from thinning hair have tried a variety of products before seeking professional treatment. Commercial products, such as hair growth shampoo, often leave users disappointed with their results. However, the doctors at True & Dorin Medical Group can help you find an effective treatment option that is tailored to your hair loss type and severity. While the cost of these shampoos is less than professional hair restoration, they will not yield the same results and can end up costing you a substantial amount of money when consistently used over a long period of time. Patients in New York, New Jersey, and Boston can rely on Dr. Robert H. True and Dr. Robert J. Dorin to listen to their goals and needs to best provide them with personally tailored treatment plans.

Do Hair Growth Shampoos Work? 

There are many self-proclaimed hair growth shampoos that include ingredients such as: 

  • Biotin 
  • Caffeine
  • Aloe 
  • Nettle extract 

Regardless of whether these ingredients may benefit hair in some capacity, this treatment method has a limited effect as the shampoo only has minimal contact with the hair follicles. For those who are experiencing moderate to severe thinning or shedding, a hair growth shampoo typically will not provide the significant improvement you are seeking.

Commercial products, such as hair growth shampoo, often leave users disappointed with their results.  

Alternative Treatments 

Many patients who have previously used hair growth shampoos have done so as an alternative to popular surgical hair restoration treatments. However, there are other diverse treatment options that have shown consistent, proven results. True & Dorin Medical Group offers several non-surgical options for patients who do not wish to undergo an FUT or FUE procedure. We pride ourselves on offering comprehensive hair loss solutions including: 

Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

This procedure is safe and virtually painless. During treatment, an infrared device is applied to your scalp to revitalize hair growth. Laser therapy can increase the thickness of hair shafts and provide overall improved hair growth. We offer in-office treatment as well as a take-home device, the Capillus272™ Pro.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Using your own blood, this treatment can reduce hair loss and stimulate growth. If we determine you are a good candidate for this non-surgical option, the PRP will be gently and precisely injected into your scalp by one of our experienced staff.

During an in-depth consultation, our doctors can determine which treatment is best for your hair growth goals.

Benefits of Professional Treatment

Seeking professional treatment for your thinning hair can allow you to properly diagnose your condition. There are many causes of hair loss, some of which are typically temporary (such as telogen effluvium) and others that may cause permanent balding. With a correctly diagnosed condition, we can help you devise a strategic plan for hair regrowth.  Our office is also equipped with the latest technology. This not only allows us to accurately evaluate your condition but also to achieve more efficient and effective results.
