Dr. Day often recommends patients incorporate at-home treatments into their hair growth regimens. These products that help with hair thinning and loss are available at your drugstore or online. Many contain the FDA-approved active ingredient minoxidil. Dr. Day also custom-made a hair growth formulation by adding in prescription-strength minoxidil and combined it with other helpful ingredients.
Minoxidil is FDA approved to improve hair growth in both men and women and is available in various concentrations. Dr. Day's products have additional beneficial ingredients incorporated into her growth kit. She utilizes niacinamide and caffeine to minimize irritation, improve absorption, and optimize the anti-aging benefits to the skin and follicles.
Antioxidants play an integral role in fostering a healthier environment for hair growth by acting on scalp skin and follicles to improve circulation and strengthen hair. They work well with other components of a hair growth program to support and optimize results. Dr. Day has compiled her own proprietary Esteem Botanical Hair Drops that contain a mix of natural antioxidants to help support hair growth. Julien Farel products contain an excellent cocktail of antioxidants, such as resveratrol, in a formulation that leaves the scalp rejuvenated. It even helps those who have itching, scale and redness of the scalp with or without hair loss.
Low Level Laser Therapy can combat hair thinning and loss while you are at home. At home laser caps cover a broad surface of the scalp and have numerous diodes that provide excellent energy. They influence the hair growth in three stages (1. Stops hair loss; 2. Current hair becomes thicker and fuller; 3. Regrowth of new hair). Dr. Day recommends the following brands of laser caps: Theradome, Capillus, and The Laser Cap.
