Is Scalp Med the Best Mens Hair Restoration Formula?

Scalp Med is NOT a miracle hair replacement treatment, but it can HELP with women’s and mens hair restoration in some cases. Here’s a simple explanation of how scalpmeds works as a natural hair regrowth TOOL and why It can be used for PREVENTING hair loss and STIMULATING HAIR GROWTH in certain cases.

The Active Ingredient in Scalp Med is Minoxidil – What Does That Mean to YOU?

The official Scalp Med (also confused as Med Scalp) information and pictures could make men and women surmise that by using their hair restoration formula a full head of hair will grow where baldness now exists. This isn’t totally true. Is it false advertising? Not exactly.

What you see depicted are examples of the top 1% or 2% of the best possible results achieved by those who used the Scalp Med product and were IDEAL candidates who responded favorably to the active ingredient Minoxidil, which is a scientifically proven to be a vasodilator that can have positive affects on androgenic alopecia.

The Causes of Hair Loss in Women and Men – What is Alopecia Areata?

1. Genetic Factors beyond Your Control

Androgenic alopecia is hairloss or balding in men and women and is primarily thought to be a caused by genetics, an X-chromosome that we’re born with and makes some of us predisposed to balding.

2. The Role That Hormones Play – Dihydrotestosterone – DHT

Aside from purely genetic factors, it’s theorized that the cause of androgenic alopecia (although still largely unknown) may be affected adversely by androgens, especially dihydrotestosterone, which is commonly called DHT – a hormone that regulates not only hair growth but sex drive in both men and women.

These androgens, although very useful during sexual development. may affect hair follicles (if genetically predisposed) and cause them to get smaller and smaller until the follicle is so shrunken that hair no longer pushes up through the scalp. Hair follicles may shrivel up and vanish, and that’s why a DHT blocker formulas are also considered a treatment for baldness.

DHT Blocker Therapy

Playing with dihydrotestosterone (DHT), in order to help hair loss, is a tricky business with side affects that can be undesirable in the sexual department. So how can the affects of DHT be minimized?

Hair Growth Stages, DHT and Minoxidil

Minimizing the effects of excessive DHT comes down to knowing how androgens are processed when they reach the hair follicle’s dermal papilla receptors (where hormones and nutrients are absorbed and delivered to the follicle).

If a person is genetically predisposed to producing excessive DHT, which blocks and shrinks the follicles, how can nutrients be delivered to the follicle?

That’s where ingredients like minoxidil come in. Without tampering with hormone levels or DHT production, minoxidil (being a channel opener – vasodilator) may widen blood vessels, which means increased blood circulation to the scalp, more oxygen, more nutrients and perhaps less chance that follicles will shrink and die (if they are not already dead). Minoxidil can potentially aid hair restoration in men and women between the ages of eighteen and (about) forty-one if the follicles are not shrunken to the point where they can’t be restored – if they’re not dead.

Getting Telogen (Dormant) Hair Phases to Move Onto an Active Anagen Stage

In clinical studies conducted on how to prevent hair loss, minoxidil was proven effective to help RESTORE hair growth to follicles that were not totally destroyed, in other words it prevented further damage to hair that still existed. How?

Restoring and preventing hair loss is about the hair growth stages. For example hair that is in the telogen phase (the stage in which the hair follicle rests) can be stimulated to shed and more quickly get to the anagen phase (when the hair follicle is in active growth) and therefore a hair grows where previously there wasn’t one. Don’t confuse this stimulation of growth with a DHT blocker or a solution that alters follicles already atrophied.

How Can Scalp Med Help Hair Growth?

Minoxidil (sold under brand names like Loniten, Rogaine, Avacor, Mintop and also as an ingredient in Scalp Med preparations labeled as Vitadil-5A or Vitadil-2A) acts as a means of stimulation in the natural hair restoration process for follicles that are alive, that can still feasibly grow hair.

  1. That means that first there will be shedding, then hair growth will begin if the area in question is not too damaged or if the DHT levels are not so high that the growth is blocked, and genetic predisposition toward balding is NOT the only factor involved in hair loss.
  2. That also means that Scalp Med (and similar hair restoration products that use the active ingredient minoxidil to stimulate hair growth) will work on patients who are balding due to environmental factors, poor diet, poor circulation, and blocked or dormant follicles but not as a means to regrow hair from shrunken dead follicles.

In cases where men and women over 40, with large balding areas, used the Scalp Med products, most didn’t experience significant evidence that the product helped in restoring hair. However, in patients who were younger, had a waxy buildup around hair roots, and had poor circulation resulting in follicles not receiving proper nutrition, but were not generically predisposed to balding, and still had some hair to restore, the Scalpmeds products were able to help PREVENT hair loss and restore a measure of fullness.

Will Scalp Med Work for Regrowing Hair in YOUR Case?

Hair restoration using topical minoxidil formulations CAN be considered the best hair loss treatment to help PREVENT further loss of hair and MAINTAIN what you still have.

It’s one of the best hair loss products for men and women provided the hair follicles aren’t already dead, the DHT levels are not a main cause of balding, and the patient isn’t genetically predisposed to hormonal male hair loss that’s already shrunken follicles beyond repair.

Realistic Expectation of What ScalpMed can do for YOU

If you approach the use of Scalp Med with realistic expectations, as a means to discover which follicles on your scalp are able to be restored / stimulated into a little more hair growth, then it’s well worth a try.

1. Scalp Meds products have no adverse side effects of a sexual nature (like the products that act as a DHT blocker and can reduce sexual libido).

2. Scalp Med, unlike some formulations, won’t dry the scalp, but moisturizes it – so it may help your scalp feel better overall.

3. You can use it with good results if you’re just starting to notice a little balding. Remember that minoxidil doesn’t restore hair in dead follicles but helps stimulate follicles to shed and regrow hair faster. Formulas are slightly different for men and women, so choose the appropriate products for YOU.

4. Scalpmeds isn’t magic. Hair won’t appear overnight. It must be used continually. It doesn’t completely stop male pattern baldness, it doesn’t eliminate elevated levels of DHT, therefore the scalp stimulation must continue or hair may begin to fall out again.

5. It’s a good idea to blend the active product ingredient in Med Scalp preparations with the use of their daily hair restoration shampoo.

6. Also, try the patented Panthenol-Dx Follicle Detoxifier to give your scalp a detox from sebaceous secretions that may be blocking the follicles.

7. If you’ve tried other products that promise to regrow hair, some are greasy and others dry-out the scalp due to alcohol content. Scalp Med is neither greasy nor drying. You shouldn’t have an itchy red scalp unless you’re allergic to the product. Do a test patch to be sure.

8. If you’re completely bald, it’s doubtful Scalp Med products will work in your case. It would be best to get hair replacement started through surgical hair transplant methods that have proved effective in cases where the follicles are no longer able to produce hair.
