Hair Loss - Other Treatment

Other treatment for hair loss includes:

  • Wearing hairpieces. Hairpieces are made from human or synthetic hair that is implanted into a nylon netting. Hairpieces may be attached to the scalp with glue, metal clips, or tape. But hair weaving, which involves sewing or braiding pieces of long hair into existing hair, is not recommended because it may cause permanent hair loss.
  • Hair care products and styling techniques. Hair care products or perms may make hair appear thicker. Dyes may be used to color the scalp.
  • Laser phototherapy combs. These combs use low levels of light to increase hair growth on the scalp. They are designed for use at home.
  • Counseling, if hair loss is caused by compulsive pulling of your hair (trichotillomania).
