5 Ways To Stop Hair Loss and Regrow Hair Without Surgery

5 ways to stop hair loss without surgery

Hair loss: It's got to be one of the worst things a human can go through, right?  I mean, seriously, who the heck wouldn't be devastated at the mere thought of going bald?  The unfortunate thing is, over 65% of men, and around 50% of women, will suffer from some stage of hair loss by the age of 40. That's a pretty brutal statistic, when you think about it. 

What makes matters worse is that, as things currently stand, there isn't a cure for baldness.  Yes, that's right, we can put a man on the moon, but we still can't find a cure for male/female pattern baldness. How crazy is that?! 

Luckily, though, despite there not being a cure, you'll be pleased to know that there ARE ways in which hair loss can at least be treated.  By 'treated', we mean slowed down, and even halted in some cases. There are hundreds of thousands of men and women who have manged to find a good treatment plan which has enabled them to stop losing hair, and maintain healthy hair growth. The question is, how did they do it? 

Well, in this article, we'll go through the ways in which hair loss can viably be stopped, and that's WITHOUT the hefty cost of surgical procedures like hair transplantation. 

So, without further ado, and in no particular order, here are the five ways that have helped plenty of hair loss sufferers take control of their hair, prevent hair fall, and maintain a good, thicker hair growth cycle...

A. Minoxidil

The vast majority of men and women are probably familiar with the medically approved hair loss treatment, Minoxidil. Minoxidil is the only medically approved topical treatment for baldness. It is most commonly recognised as Regaine/Rogaine, but it also comes branded under a number of cheaper names, such as Kirkland, for example.

This is the only over-the-counter medication for hair loss approved by the FDA for use by both men (5% solution) and women (2% solution). It won't rescue a receding hairline. It does stimulate hair growth, although scientists aren't quite sure how it works, exactly. 

Minoxidil can be up to five times more effective when used in conjunction with other treatments, which we'll delve into in this article, so be sure to purchase the cheaper Minoxidil brands, as you'll need to spend some money elsewhere, too. 

B. Micro-Needling 

This one will probably sound bizarre to some of you, but it's true, micro-needling can indeed help with the regrowth of hair.  Micro-needling involves the use of a derma roller, with small needles that causes minor skin injuries. While used as an anti-aging skin treatment, micro-needling may also be a method of treatment for hair loss. There's even evidence that it can help a special type of hair loss known as alopecia areata.

So, basically, by punching hundreds of tiny holes into your scalp, you are forcing the wounded area to produce protein during its phase of recovery, which in turn leads to the stimulation of hair growth. How crazy is that?! 

What's more, is that this process can be even more effective in conjunction with Minoxidil. Purchase a 1.5mm derma roller, or derma pen/stamp, and use along the desired areas of your scalp just once a week. Do not use Minoxidil on the day you are micro-needling. The combination has helped many men (and women) halt their hair loss and regrow hair that was previously lost. 

You can purchase derma rollers from Amazon for under £10.

C. Ketoconazole

In addition to treating fungal infections, some research has found that ketoconazole may help to treat hair loss caused by male pattern baldness. Researchers believe that ketoconazole may do this by affecting DHT, the hormone responsible for hair loss in men.

Ketoconazole, also sold under the prescription name Nizoral (shampoo), can work on a small scale, but, when used in conjunction with the Minoxidil and the derma roller, you can expect some pretty insane results. 

Much like most of the products in this list, Nizoral shampoo is very cheap. You're looking at spending under £5 for one bottle. Apply around 2-3 times a week, and be sure to leave it in your hair for at least 4-5 minutes, before washing out. you should see some decent results, providing you use it with the other treatments on this list. 

D. Multi-Vitamin Supplement 

If, like so many people, you are looking to stay away from prescription drugs, and the potentially nasty side-effects that come with them, then multi-vitamin supplements offer you a safe, natural, and effective alternative.

If you suffer from early stages of baldness, then multi-vitamin supplements can be very effective in slowing down hair loss, and increasing the rate of healthy hair growth. And when used in conjunction with the other treatments mentioned in this article, multi-vitamin supplements can be hugely effective for your hair. 

If you're suffering from deficiencies in certain vitamins, then multi-vitamin supplements should be the first thing on your shopping list. Feeding your body with hair beneficiary ingredients alone, can do wonders for your hair. Some of the market leaders include Viviscal and HR23+, but be warned, the good ones are a little pricey, but well worth it if they prove effective for your hair. 


Ok, so living a healthy lifestyle won't magically regrow your hair, but it certainly doesn't do any harm. Many people underestimate how much good a healthy lifestyle can do for, not only your hair, but your whole body. 

If running 10 miles a day or lifting heavy weights in the gym isn't really your thing, then fear not, because there are plenty of other ways you can get healthier. And you know what they say; a healthier body leads to healthier hair. 

So, be more active, take long walks, eat less sugar, and pack your diet with more protein. Your hair will thrive on protein-rich foods such as fish, meat, eggs, lentils, cheese, nuts, chickpeas, quinoa, and tofu. Be sure to feed your body with goodness, and in turn, your hair can only benefit from it.
