Affordable Ways To Help Fight Balding

If you've been dealing with thinning hair and balding, perhaps you have looked into various treatment options and been taken aback by the price. Surgery and laser treatments can cost a small fortune. Is this really your only option if you want to enjoy a full head of hair again? Thankfully, it is not. There are a number of more affordable ways to fight balding. Take a look:


This is a topical hair regrowth treatment that you can buy at most pharmacies. Some salons also sell it directly. It has a long track record of safety and effectiveness. Basically, it works by causing the blood vessels in your scalp to dilate. This increased blood flow can help encourage your hair to start growing again. You do need to use minoxidil daily for a couple of months in order to experience its benefits. Luckily, it is easily absorbed into your scalp after treatment so it should not be obvious when it's on your head. Side effects are rare, but some people are bothered by a warm, tingling feeling after application.

Scalp Massage

A simple scalp massage can also help regrow your hair. You might figure this would do more harm than good because it would rub the hairs out, but if hairs are so weakly attached as to be rubbed out, then they were going to be lost anyway. The scalp massage helps increase blood flow to the scalp, which increases hair growth. You will need regular massages to see an effect, but the good news is that massaging the scalp does not require a whole lot of precision or special technique. You can have a friend or your partner watch a few YouTube videos and do it for you every day or two.

Pumpkin Seed Oil

If you're looking for an all-natural treatment for balding, pumpkin seed oil is an affordable one that shows promise. It is thought to work by lowering the levels of certain hormones that can lead to hair loss. This makes it a good choice for female hair loss, which is often hormone-related. You basically apply the pumpkin oil to your scalp once a day. Rub it in well, which will double as a massage and therefore help boost your effects.

You do not have to spend a fortune to fight balding. These three treatments are all quite affordable; give one or more of them a try, and enjoy thicker hair soon. Speak with a professional about other affordable hair treatment options.
