Many people suffer from hair loss and it can be tempting use chemical hair loss treatments readily found at the drugstore.
When you see strands of hair pooling by your bathroom drain and your scalp is already showing bald patches, it is natural to feel panic rising. When desperation sinks in, you read about our situation from the internet, watch the ads, and decide that you need to buy these products immediately.
The problem is, we can easily fall pray to over-the-counter (O.T.C.) hair loss products that are full of chemicals. Here are some of the reasons why we impulsively buy these items:
They claim to be effective.
They say the healing effects are felt quickly.
They are widely available.
They appear to be cheaper.
They claim to be safe.
They are convenient.
Yes, chemical-based products are readily available and some are really cheap. Add to that the colorful and exciting commercials and they can really be so tempting for the desperate soul.
But once you have studied these products enough, you will realize they might not be good for your overall health. Yes, they might promote hair growth and arrest hair fall, but the negative side effects can be really bad.
Side effects of Chemical Hair Loss Products
Some hair loss products have serious side effects like tightness in the chest, difficulty in breathing, rapid heartbeat (tachycardia), and swelling of the hands and feet. These are some of the possible side effects of the hair loss drug popularly known as Minoxidil, which is said to stop hair fall and promote hair growth.
Some chemical hair loss products claim that they can “treat” alopecia areata, but read the fine print and you will see that they just slows the progress of hair loss and do not really cure the syndrome.
These products or “treatments” usually contain a variety of chemicals that may or may not cause allergic reactions. The effects vary between individuals.
Meanwhile, some chemical-based hair loss products may actually be presenting the side effects as the main effects. You can ask medical professionals and go to the internet for information on such products and their ingredients. It pays to always check the labels.
