Hair Loss Treatments For Women

A toupee is considered a hair replacement hairpiece similar to a lace closure but not as small and not as over bearing as a lace wig. They are commonly worn by men to cover a bald spot and celebrities for several reasons. Yes, celebrity men absolutely adore the new innovative naturally appearing toupees. In addition, it is also used for theatrical purposes on actors during a shoot for a TV show or a movie.

Before we begin, its best to clarify the definition of a celebrity to understand the association. A celebrity is a person who is easily recognized in a society or culture. Being a celebrity is someone who receives media attention and shows an extroverted personality. However, there are various reasons for their popularity and how they became celebrities, whether it is through their profession, appearances in the media or it can be even by struck of luck. Therefore you may come to understand why many of the male celebrities have either grown to enjoy wearing the hairpiece or have chosen to, so that they can maintain that glamorous appearance in the public eye.

The new age toupees are unbelievably undetectable when applied and worn correctly. They seem to be the ideal resolution for men, especially celebrity men experiencing loss of self-esteem as a result of their hair loss condition. If you have any interest on how to spot their hair pieces on celebrities then simply remember these vital characteristics and you will. Those of which are a color mismatch, bad texture, and the appearance of the hairline. A color mismatch is when the color on the top doesn't match the bottom, which probably means that it is a toupee.

A poor hair texture that doesnt seem to be caused by over processing or damaged cuticles could be another sign of a hairpiece. Check the hairlines for signs of hair loss or receding hairline. As you age, your hairline gradually recedes, especially if you consistently change it or have it changed like actors would to successfully play their role. Therefore if their hairline seems to be consistent from their early years till now its probably safe to say that they have had some sort of hair replacement therapy or they have a hairpiece on.

The bottom line is that you shouldnt feel insecure with wearing a toupee because many individuals, especially celebrities use the unit for fashionable purposes and as a solution for their hair loss condition. Wearing a hairpiece now is as common as dying your hair.

Frequently Asked Questions

      Hair loss in women is more rare since women have trace amounts of testosterone and even these minute amounts can be converted into hair loss inducing DHT. Commonly, women going through menopause experience hair thinning and loss. It is understood that during menopause, women stop ovulating because of erratic estradiol, testosterone, and estrogen levels. These erratic hormone levels can result in higher levels of testosterone that can then be converted in DHT.
      In both men and women, the role of hormones in causing hair loss is clear. By understanding the causes of it, the solution is clear: stop DHT from being produced and or stop it from acting on hair follicles.

  2. QUESTION:
    Which is the best dietary supplement or vitamin known for severe women hair loss?
    I am very young, not even 18, and i've already tried many hair loss treatments without result.. Can you recommend any?

    • ANSWER:
      Several reasons can cause excessive hair lose. A severe illness or major surgery, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal problems, your current medicine intakes, certain hair treatments that use chemical dyes, bleaches, and straightening or curling agent, or autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks hair follicles causing hair on the head to fall out, etc.

      Supplements recommendations for hair lose:

      B vitamins are important for the health and growth of the hair,especially B6, biotin, folic acid, B5 (pantothenic acid and B3 (niacin)
      http://www.marketamerica.com/lcbeauty/index.cfm?action=shopping.wpGoShopProducts&prodID=2241

      For Vitamin B complex, I would recommend Isotonix line when available because Isotonix line it's the only oral supplements in the market with isotonic capability when mixing with certain amount of water. Any food or pills taken orally must be digested within our stomach and transported in an isotonic state before our body can absorb its nutrients, this process can take from 40 minutes to 4 hours. Remember our stomach is very high acidic, which means many nutritional values are lost during digestion.

      This means that when we drink a supplement that’s isotonic, our stomach does not need to digest it, so that it can enter our small intestines for absorption within minutes. With Isotonix products, little nutritive value is lost, making the absorption of nutrients highly efficient while delivering maximum results.

      Another supplement I would recommend is to increase omega-3 fatty acids in your diet.
      Omega 3 provide anti-inflammatory property and it’s very important for healthy hair growth.

      I would recommend Heart Health™ Essential Omega III Fish Oil
      http://www.marketamerica.com/lcbeauty/index.cfm?action=shopping.wpGoShopProducts&prodID=2247

      When shopping for fish oil in the market, always look at its EPA and DHA values, because these are the omega 3 readily benefit for human body. Also pay attention to the guarantee of free hard metal contamination.

      Heart Health™ Essential Omega III Fish Oil provides three grams of EPA and DHA, which studies reveal to be the most efficient amount for optimal health and has been tested twice to ensure free of heavy metals.

      In additions, decrease your animal protein intake and try to replace with plant protein when possible. Excessive animal proteins might cause inflammation in your body, encourage hair lose.

      Eat more fruits and vegetables regularly.

      Handle your hair gently, allowing it to air-dry whenever possible and avoid hair product that contain chemical ingredients.

      If you are looking for a gentle shampoo without harsh chemicals and nature base ingredients, try Royal Spa Ultra III Shampoo. This salon formula botanical shampoo, conditioner and finishing rinse in one for dry and chemically treated hair. It features a delicate, moisturizing blend of botanical extracts of evening primrose, heather, jasmine, and orchid to quench dry hair and scalp. It is enhanced with deodorizing freshener to remove chemical processing odors, cigarette smoke and other unpleasant odors.

      http://www.marketamerica.com/lcbeauty/index.cfm?action=shopping.wpGoShopProducts&prodID=2190

      Last suggestive word is be patient and be consistent and persistent because you will probably not see immediately result because your body needs some time to adjust to your new diet and to heal. But be sure to be optimistic and always carry a positive emotion because your mood affects your hormone and also affect your health.

  3. QUESTION:
    cost of REALLUSIONS hair loss treatment for women?
    i was looking online for different types of hair loss/thinning treatments for women for my mother. her hair has become quite thin in the front and it bothers her terribly. she has tried a small hair piece, not a cheap one either, but various hair dressers could never blend it quite right with the rest of her hair.

    i stumbled across the website "iwanthair.com" and was interested in the REALLUSIONS treatment but i can't seem to find any info on how much something like that would cost. i know it won't be cheap but the nearest location for my mother to receive a consultation visit is roughly 2 hours away. i would just like to know if this treatment would be a feasible option for my mother cost wise before visiting the clinic for a consultation.

    if anyone knows of approximate costs of this treatment and/or has had experience with it, i would greatly appreciate your feedback.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Nefariou, hair loss could be for a multitude of reasons - stress, thyroid, genetic, nutrient deficiency. I suggest you read up on all these at this informative and easy to navigate site:

      http://www.hairlossmentor.com

      This will enable you to know what options are available and thus make informed decisions about it. By the time you finish, you will know for certain whether that 2-hour trip is necessary for now.

      Just my 2 cents worth. I wish your mother good health and a long life.

  11. QUESTION:
    Can I use Hair Loss treatments on my hair?
    Hi :)
    I am 17 years old.
    I do not have any form of hair loss, as in- I'm not balding or anything like how you see in the picture examples in hair loss commercials.
    However, my hair did break off though at the top, due to mistreating my hair, getting relaxers and not keeping up with them, constant flat ironing, etc.
    So I was wondering, would it be safe to use hair loss treatments (like the stuff that older men/women use on their hair when they're getting hair loss due to aging)
    could that work on just helping speed up the growth in my hair? I hope this makes sense,

    i have a friend who has hair that goes about an inch passed her belly button, and after she got out of the shower i saw her squirt some hair loss product for men in her hair, and her hair looks perfectly healthy, smooth, and extremely long and thick.
    so i was wondering if this could be something i could try as well?
    i'm hoping using hair loss product on my hair at my age doesn't cause more damage or hair loss,
    but i was wondering is it a possibility to use on hair not for hair loss problems, but simply for hair growth? thank you for your time.

    • ANSWER:
      Heredity, hormones, stress, diet, illness, poor hair care – all are factors in hair loss.

      Stress, diet and illness are more temporary conditions and usually the hair loss is reversed when the anxiety-producing conditions dissipate, when the diet is improved, when hair care improves and when an illness is cured or gotten under control.

      Heredity and hormones are different matters, however. Heredity is an irreversible condition. You are a product of your parents, and hair loss is often inherited. Hormones are tricky, hidden things, however, and they have different effects on an individual basis.

      In a male, testosterone abides abundantly. There are also enzymes working on testosterone which product a substance called DHT. DHT is now known to circulate in the blood and cause other conditions, one of which is the shrinking of hair follicles. When hair follicles shrink enough, they are unable to produce and push a new hair through. As old hair dies, it is then not replaced.

      In women, hormonal imbalances can also cause hair loss. Pregnancy, childbirth and menopause all cause significant hormonal change and imbalances with both physical and mental effects. These changes can also cause hair loss, both temporary and permanent.

      Hair loss and re-growth products have been around for centuries. In ancient times, a variety of herbal and oil-based remedies were concocted and used by Egyptians, Aztecs, Mayans, and American Indians, all with some degree of effectiveness for some people. Modern medical research has focused on ways to re-open and stimulate “dead” hair follicles, so that hair growth can re-occur naturally, as well as keep the healthy follicles healthy. Thus, a number of products have become available, both by prescription and over-the-counter. They are advertised on radio and television and all over the Internet. One need only do a “google” search on hair loss, and there are literally thousands of sites and products for investigation.

      One ingredient in many hair loss products is minoxidil. Research studies have shown that in about 80% of the participants, products containing this ingredient are effective in slowing hair loss and, in some, causing re-growth to occur.

      Probably the most well known is Rogaine, available at any drug store, in varieties for both men and women. Most scientifically-produced products do have separate products for males and females, because, of course, hormones in each are different and of different levels.

      An additional product containing minoxidil is Provillus, and, again, studies have shown it to be effective. The difference between Provillus and other similar products is that the makes have added Azelaic Acid, an additional ingredient which appears to enhance the follicle repair in both men and women. Provillus has been the subject of many studies, just as the other products, and level of effectiveness may be higher.

      Provillus is available for both men and women, and the treatment is a combination of a topical liquid applied to the balding areas, as well as a pill or capsule to be taken in conjunction with the liquid. The critical key to effectiveness, according to its makers, is the addition of the azelaic acid, however, the correct amount of this acid is most important piece of this treatment.

      As with most hair loss products, the makers recommend patience. It may take from 3-6 months for improvement to occur, however, there is a money-back guarantee up to 180 days if one is not satisfied that it is working for him/her.

      Medical research is far from finished in its exploration of products which will stop hair loss and promote re-growth of “permanent” loss. As this research continues, existing producers will undoubtedly alter their products accordingly.

      Fortunately, a lot of money is being poured into the research, so hair loss sufferers, take heart!

  12. QUESTION:
    best treatment for hair loss in women?

    • ANSWER:
      If you have has Apalecia then a wig is the only way to go .I have a family member who had to do this half the time I forget its not her own hair it looks sooo good

  13. QUESTION:
    What options are available to fix Hair Loss for Older Women?
    I am a 50yr old women and I am losing hair in a few spots in my head and I wanted to know what are some great products or treatments available to help me with new growth in those affected areas. I am trying to avoid wigs.

    • ANSWER:
      Find the 'cause' before you can find the solution, then eliminate them. Your hair will improve. Remember, whatever it was that caused them to fall out in the first place, it took months even years to get in your system, it will takes years to flush them down, so don't expect miracles overnight.

      So many reasons for hair loss:

      Supplements, steroids, hereditary, hair dyes perming, straightening, diet, having babies (yes I read once it happened to her), stress, medications with testosterone, certain antidepressants, menopause, anti-acne, and too much of everything. Add to that the 7,000 + toxic found in your home, plus pollution found outdoors. Your hair is crying for help!
      Ex. of relaxed hair. http://monicabtheorganicstylist.wordpress.com/tag/hair-relaxers/

      When your hair is crying for help, that's when it's too late to do anything about it, and hair products can not reverse the problem.

      They also say you normally lose 100-200 hair a day, but I don't. I lose about 7-8 every time I brush it, so that's about 100 per week, give or take.About 23-25 if I shampooed/brush my hair, which is every 4th day.

      The majority of hair problems here are from girls in their 30s, asking how to care for their damaged hair, what product to make their hair grow, why their hair falls out, and why their shampoo or conditioner don't work. Women between 60-80 have that same problem, but it took them years to get there. And those same 30 & under girls are giving advice here? Now, I'm answering more problems re: hair fall or hair not growing from girls under 15. Go figure!

      Even the cheapest shampoo can do magic for your hair, so it must be what you're doing AFTER you wash it. Shampoos and vitamins might make your hair look and feel healthier, but they won’t put more hairs on your head.

      According Dr. Melissa Piliang, a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic. Americans spent an estimated 6 million on hair loss products last year, and chances are some of that money was not well spent. Don’t let charming salon owners, seductive ads or fancy gimmicks convince you otherwise.

    • ANSWER:
      The symptom of hair loss could be an indication of a hormone imbalance (an example only) such as with the thyroid but the only way to know for sure is to see your doctor for further evaluation. Before even talking to the doctor though I would recommend letting your mom know what's going on so that she can help you keep an eye on it.

      year ago I suffered very much from dandruff and hair loss too and I started trying everything you can imagine to stop my hair loss.
      the things that really worked for me was:

      1) Vitamin A - an anti-oxidant which promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp;

      2) Vitamin E stimulates circulation. Good blood circulation in the scalp is important in keeping hair follicles productive. The 'B' vitamins contribute to melanin, which gives hair its healthy color and also stimulates blood circulation;

      3) massage is also beneficial. Massage stimulates circulation. As already noted, good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Experts suggest a few minutes of daily head massage by hand. Circulation through massage may be improved by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base with massage;

      4) Try rubbing your scalp with garlic juice, Onion Juice or Ginger Juice(you can either of one out of three, Do not mix any of two or three);

      5) also I used herbal treatment - Provillus (do not use Rogaine - it will not work!)
      It is a good products that helps prevent hair loss and contains Biotin and the clinically tested ingredients approved by the FDA to help re-grow your hair.! I think it is very important!

      It worked and still works for me!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry Provillus but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.provillus.com/?aid=221781

      It enhances hair growth by blocking DHT (Dihydrotestostrone) - a major cause of hair loss!

    Hair Loss - What Works For Hair Regrowth?
    I am a 37 year old male and have a very bad receding hair line. It runs in the family. My father who is now 60 is totally bald on top. I have finally decided to take some action. I have been doing some extensive research for the last six months looking for something to begin regrowth or even stop the loss of more of my hair.

    I think I have come across a hair treatment that may work. The reason for my question is to find if anyone male or female has tried this product. They state that it has been proven to provide hair regrowth to both balding men and women. I would like any positive or negative feedback regarding this product.

  30. QUESTION:
    Women only: I am considering a lace front wig from a hairloss place?
    I had a consultation for hair loss at the Hair Club for Men and Women. I have diffuse hairloss on the top of my head. The consultant told me that the best option for me would be a lace-front wig, which would cover the thinning area. The piece would cost around 00 to 00. I talked to my sister about it and she recommended that I go to some of the local hair salons, where they do these types of wigs for a lot cheaper.

    I would like to know if anyone has had a lace front wig done by the HC for Men and Women. If so, were you happy with your results??

    Also, how would a lace front wig/weave be just as good from a regular salon, if it is cheaper? My sister said that her friend has had several, and they use human hair and she believes the process would be the same as it would be at the hair loss treatment center.

    One of my concerns is making sure that the hair is a very close match to my own. I have a multi-ethnic/racial background and my hair is very soft with waves and the hair strands are very fine. When I shampoo and brush it back into a ponytail to let it dry naturally, the top can be very straight. It can also go into very nice corkscrew curls or waves when I air dry it, but it is also very easy to straighten...Therefore, I would need a hair texture that is very versatile and bouncy.

    • ANSWER:
      Hiya,

      I'm sorry about your hairloss, it's really distressing.

      Firstly I think the best way forward is for me to be honest with you.

      Frontals shouldn't cost more than 0 at the very most.
      It will be hard to mimick the exact texture of your hair as your natural hair isn't identical to the majority of hair donors so go for the closest match to yours, if you spend less for a quality wig then you'll be able to experiment.

      If the company your using can match the hair texture then by all means the price is worth it, but if it's just a close match then you can get frontals for less money.

      I hope that helps,

      Chaz

  31. QUESTION:
    Hair loss and fake hair?
    Hi, for the past several years I have been having severe hair loss due to a chronic disease that I have. As any of you can imagine, for a women to lose her hair before 30 is completely terrifying, not to mention embarrassing. Thankfully I have not lost all of it and it is just thinner. However, recently I have been starting to think you can see my scalp. My hair used to be one of better features so that is why this scares me so much. Can any of you tell me if salons have a treatments where they can put fake hair onto your scalp? It would be kind of like extensions, except it would thicken the hair also. Any info on this would be helpful if it even exists. Thanks to everyone who answers.

    Any treatment for hair loss?
    I'm a woman in my late 30's and lossing much hair. Especially when I wash or comb it. Any suggestions? Please help. Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      NIOXIN< across the counter (salon sold), check with www.nioxin.com for a referral in your area. Try & see a sytlist that can answer your questions ( & ask you questions, to know what might be triggering this). Nioxin is not a drug based product, it will not cause hair to grow, but it will remove the influences that are causing it to fall out. Has your thyroid been checked, thyroid disease can cause hair loss. Are you taking new drugs ( birth control , or not taking drugs you were taking?) All of these can be reasons for the loss. Job change, boyfriend troubles? These are all contributors, to a DNA trait you may carry. Good luck, look into NIOXIN..............

  33. QUESTION:
    Anyone know products for women that truly help thinning hair?
    I'm 40, have 3 kids (9, 6, 3) and have noticed over the last 3-5 years my hair falling out and beginning to thin on top. This is extremely distressing to me and I'm worried to death about it. My thyroid is in check and I have no health problems that cause hair loss, so I don't know how to fix this problem. My ob said there's really nothing anyone, male or female, can do about thinning hair. It's just age, hormone, stress related. He said even Rogaine doesn't work or else we wouldn't still see bald men, much less women! Does anyone who has had this problem know any treatments that truly made a difference before I go spending tons of cash on a million products promising thicker hair. Mind you, I'm not bald or balding - I've just noticed a definite thinning on the crown of my head and have to carefully style my hair so that my scalp doesn't show.

  34. QUESTION:
    How many treatments of laser hair removal?
    I know that women also have hair on their bodies, usually nowhere near as much as men have. I’ve been through so many tests and ultrasounds and doctors appointments and hormone level tests only to find that I do not in fact have PCOS. So that's not an answer to this question, neither is going on the pill because I have tried that and all it really does is make me so sick and queasy that I can't be happy or comfortable. Low dosage isn’t an option—my stomach’s just that sensitive.

    So I've reached a conclusion: I'm going to just go ahead and get electrolysis, something I've been thinking about for a while. I just have a couple of random areas of some hair growth on my chin and jaw line, and I try not to pluck anymore because that leaves marks. I've managed for a bit with just taking small scissors and cutting it down, but it just makes me so self conscious. I don't even want to approach people anymore or talk to them nor have anyone within a foot of my face because I don't want them to notice this about me. It's probably so minor that nobody would, but I've been dealing with this long enough and it often wears on my confidence level. I will say that my mom seems to have some hair growth around the same area sometimes, and she tells me it's probably genetic. But I don't want it! This is actually keeping me from pursuing romantic relationships because of how self-conscious it makes me.

    How many treatments on average should I expect to go through for it to cause permanent loss of this unwanted hair?

I was thinking of going to a dermatologist, but what if the problem is not on my scalp? will a dermatologist also perform blood tests to rule out the chances of anemia or other physical reasons for my hair loss?....or will they only examine my scalp?

    i had this problem before i got pregnant but while pregnancy my hair stopped falling so much. the hair loss returned a few months after childbirth (about 3 months ago) and is now worst than ever

    • ANSWER:
      Just go to your regular dr. first. She/he will be able to examine you and run the appropriate labs in order to determine if you need a specialist and which one to send you to if you do.

      Just FYI 'cause I'm a big nerd, here's a few things that cause alopecia(hair loss) along with other symptoms you might watch for.

      Medications that cause alopecia: warfarin, heparin, propylthiouracil, carbimazole, lithium, beta blockers, colchicine, & isotretinoin.
      -Telogen effluvium: diffuse hair loss following major stress, high fever, severe infections, hormone changes, post-partum.
      -Alopecia areata: hair follicles are attacked by T lymphocytes, usually seen in hyper or hypothyroidism, vitiligo, & down's syndrome. Characteristics include circular areas of hair loss & pitting of fingernails.
      -Tinea capitis: aka cradle cap, cased by the dermatophyte Trichophyton tonsurans. This infection can lead to scaling lesions on the scalp, patches of hair loss with stubble/broken hairs, and/or plaque formations with pustules(little bumps that look like pimples).
      -Androgenic allopecia: hair loss due to ovarian or adrenal gland dysfunction. Associated symptoms include deepened voice, clitoris enlargement, changes in skin, decreased breast tissue, & facial hair.
      -Lupus erythmatosus: may result in diffuse hair loss/involves the entire scalp or only invove the frontal scalp.

    I know it's for hair loss but i was wondering if i could use it to make my hair grow faster?
    My hair isn't falling out or anything, but i'm really desperate for a solution, because (even with frequent trims, biotin pills, cholestrol treatments, hot oiltreatments, shampoo & conditioner for breakage/ strong, healthy hair/ growth, etc.) my hair grows to a point just past my shoulders and then seems to stop growing! i don't knwo if it's breaking off or what, but it's ANNOYING!
    i got a trim a few months back and have been watching for new growth, but it's just not getting longer!

    • ANSWER:
      The idea is that it stimulates your closing hair follicles so that they grow hair instead of closing forever. It works for some people, especially if you can get it early in your hair loss. The concentration is less for women, and women shouldn't use the formula for men. Good luck!

  39. QUESTION:
    Hair thinning!! 29 F Going to be bald in no time! HELP ME!!!?
    Ok i'm new to this but i can't find answers anywhere...
    I have recently found out I have PCOS, I am on antidepressants and diaformin for the insulin resistance. I have been put on Yasmin to change the hormone levels.
    Prior to all this i had the classic symptoms, moody, crampy, exessive hair in places that shouldn't have hair on a woman as well as the thinning hair.
    Originally i thought the hair thing was due to using my straightener and not using treatments for my hair. So I bought the expensive hair dresser treatments and shampoos and it didn't work.
    I have taken silica to help strenthen my hair and still my hair falls out. i have read online that PCOS contributes to the hair loss. I have gone off Yasmin since Feb as my husband and I are trying to conceive. I understand its hormonal. I know its part of PCOS but what i dont know is 'Will it grow back?' and 'Is there someone who can help me get on track to stop if from falling out?!' What is out there for me to try?!!

    • ANSWER:
      I would see an MD regarding your hair loss. anti-depressants can cause hair loss,but a combination of the other drugs and stress can cause more.. Sure, your hair will grow back.. If you were a guy.. I'd say No.. probably premature baldness.. Regardless.. Male or Female.. Hair loss sucks.. Eventually guys grow into their hair loss as they age.. Women never. Being a bald guy now.. I have no problem with it..but in my 30's.. Yeah, I hated it.. Dig it now.

  40. QUESTION:
    Do you think Ojon should warn of the hair-loss possibility of their products?
    I purchased some Ojon restorative treatment as well as some shampoo and conditioner, daily treatment spray and shine serum about 3 1/2 years ago and used only the Ojon products. I LOVED how conditioned and in control my hair was, it was the BEST stuff I had EVER used on my hair!!!!! After a few months I started to notice I was loosing a LOT of hair... I didn't put the two together... I got my Mum to use it when we were visiting the US. While there my little brother made a comment about my hair-loss and how bald I was going... I was CRUSHED!!!!! I hadn't thought it was as bad as it was!!!! I still didn't associate the Ojon with the hair-loss... Then, about 3 months ago as a treat for a favour my sister-in-law did for us, I bought her a couple of Ojon products... About a month later she asked me if I had noticed after using the Ojon that a lot of hair fell out... I laughed, but kept thinking about it and that night I realized that my hair-loss started when I started using Ojon products!!!!! Not only that, but I had remembered that my Mum had lost a lot when she had used the restorative while we were sitting there talking... I had to agree with my SIL, Ojon was making me bald!!!!!!!!! I have found other women online who used the products and the same thing happened to them...

    So for the question (sorry this was so long!!!), Don't you think Ojon should state that their products could cause hair-loss?

    I have a whole bunch of Ojon stuff left too but I am leery about giving it to anyone else!!!! That stinks cuz its expensive stuff!!!!

  41. QUESTION:
    Custom Real Hair Wig Shops in Orange County or Los Angeles where can I make a wig with my own hair?
    I need a real wig maker that works in the best wig shop in Los Angeles County or Orange County that has a real hair wig maker in house that works with women with cancer hair loss. I need a custom wig made with my hair! I found out that I have cancer one week ago, start my chemo treamtments next week and I have really long blond hair and I am terrified of loosing my hair from chemotherapy. I really would like a high quality wig made with my own hair. I am afraid because I heard from a few women that some places that have their wigs made in China actually steal the hair or switch it out with cheap hair. I am looking for an actual wig maker that can "guarantee" that they will use my hair to make a wig for me in the exact way I want it so it looks very natural looking and just like my own hair. I also want to visit the wig shop (no exceptions) and see the progress so I know its my hair being used. I know this is alot to ask, but I was considering canceling my chemo treatments because I don't want to loose my hair. I know that sounds terrible. Someone please help me find a wig maker in a custom wig shop with a wig maker that makes real natural looking hair wigs in Los Angeles County or Orange County. I am willing to pay alot because I know that pretty much all the womens wig companies get their wigs made in China for cheap so I understand a wig maker in the USA may be expensive. But I would rather pay extra and have a bad wig or a fake looking wig that will cause an emotional breakdown. Please only respond if you have used this wig maker in a wig shop or are a wig maker . Also please be sure that this wig shop has actual before and after pictures of the custom real hair wigs that have been made for their clients (not just a pic of some model they took from the internet) Thank you very much for your help.

    • ANSWER:
      I dont live in Orange County (I live in San Diego) but I had a custom "wig made with my hair" at a wig shop Newport Beach at Wiggin Out. I have curly human hair (and not much of it) but my type of hair is hard to find and it is very fine and soft (not like the curly hair wigs that you see in wig stores) I found out about Wiggin Out after a friend did her research on the internet. I chose Wiggin Out because they use real local wig makers. They cut my hair off in tiny sections then numbered them on a graph so the wig maker would know where to put my hair back into a cap. They used about 3" of my own hair to tie the hair into my custom made wig cap.

      They also copied my hair line so I had a slight widows peak (like my own hair) When I needed the lace front to be slightly more customized, they added little hairs around the ears to make it even more like my own hair. I did purchase some extra natural curly hair to make it thicker than my own hair (I would have had the hair donated by a family member but again, no one has long curly hair like mine)

      I let them use my photo on the website. I have really curly shoulder length med brown hair. When I was going through my chemo treatments my fellow cancer patients were shocked when they asked my why I hadn's lost my hair yet. When I explained I was wearing a custom wig made with my hair they both just looked like a deer caught in the headlights LOL. The oncology nurses even were shocked at how real my wig looks. One dear woman even commented on how she wished she would have done the same.

      I wear it around my children and husband and sometimes sleep in it (I dont like to see myself bald in the morning because it reminds me even more what I am going through) And I never let my children see me without any hair.

      To make a long story short, I truly believe that you get what you pay for (and sometimes not). I have seen many wigs in the hospital on women that did not look very real. I also have seen human hair wigs that looked like plastic hair and believe me I felt so bad for these women.

      Ask for Vickie she is very professional and she has been working with wigs for over 30 years and it shows. I get a phone call every other week to see how I am doing. They really care.

      I wish you the best of luck and I hope that you really think about who you should trust your hair too. I am so relieved God led me to Wiggin Out.

  42. QUESTION:
    can anyone rewrite this article? Grammar and Spelling must be correct. YOU CAN MAKE IT SHORTER?
    The effectiveness of hair loss products can differ with each individual. Men and women should use hair products made specifically for them. What works for one person may not work the same for another person. The best thing to do in selecting the product that is best suited is to speak to your doctor. Your doctor may suggest a certain diet for you to follow or recommend a change in your lifestyle in order to slow down the process of your hair loss. This would be better for you instead of medication or surgical treatment. Medication and surgical treatment can be expensive and also there is a risk associated with them. It is best to know what is causing your hair loss. Sometimes, losing your hair can be a result of an allergic reaction or any medications that you may be taking. If you know what is causing your hair loss problem, you can solve it before it gets worse. When you choose any type of treatment, you should be aware of any types of side effects associated with it. There are a lot of products on the market that claim to treat hair loss. It is important that you do some research on this by reading articles and speaking to people who have had experiences with the products. Surgery should never be considered as a first choice mainly because it is risky and very expensive. Use your time and money wisely to find the best hair loss treatment that fits your specific needs. It is a good idea to try simple things first, like specialty shampoos or supplements before trying more extreme methods such as surgery.

  43. QUESTION:
    Beauty Care?
    What treatments are there for hair loss in women?
    Ask your doctor about minoxidil (the generic name for Rogaine.) This is over-the-counter and available in 2% and 5% concentrations. It's something of a nuisance to apply but it helps conserve hair and may even grow some. Propecia is a drug that helps men retain their hair but unfortunately has no use for women. Propecia is not safe for women of childbearing age and it just doesn't work for older women. This is unfortunate but, for the moment, this is the situation. Surgical procedures like hair transplants can be useful for some women as well as men to "fill in" thinned-out areas.

    Do I have enough talent?
    Hi,
    I am seriously considering cosmetology school in January 2011. I would like to specialize in people who suffer from hair loss. Men, women and children. I suffer from hair loss and it has been devastating. Not just the hair loss, but the treatment for it and the way some salons try to rip you off. I am a professional woman and am 48. I know that my age shouldn't be a factor, but I'm concerned that I don't have enough talent. It seems like most beauticians can look at you and tell what cut or style would look good on you. I don't have that talent. Is that something that I will learn?
    Thanks!

      I think you can learn any talent as long as you try.Also it would be nicer to have someone who actually cares about others who suffer with hair loss. Go for it!

    Females, Dianette for hair loss - Has this worked for anyone? Whats an alternative?
    Hi all - Question for the ladies...

    Privately, I was prescribed Dianette for hair loss (General all over loss and thinning) My own GP Had never even heard of using Dianette for Hair loss only excessive Facial/Body hair...

    I was wondering if anyone else had tried using this and what their results were?

    I am off the pill now as would like to try for a child but is there an alternative tablet or treatment that is anti male hormones?

    Any respones would be much appreciated. This is such an awful condition and as a woman its causing me so much distress.

    My private doctor suggested Regaine but I am not sure whether to try it as read mixed reviews.

    I am late 20s in the UK its thought I started losing hair due to stress in 2007 i am not stressed anymore (Well not to that level!) I have had tests etc and been told i possibly have mild PCOS but have regular periods etc.

    • ANSWER:
      Dianette stops my hair from shedding. Another option is Spironolactone which you can take as well as Dianette. It's a diuretic for blood pressure which has an anti androgen effect (I take them both for acne and they also help with the mild hair shedding I have).

      The herb Saw Palmetto has an anti androgen effect. I haven't tried it but it works for some people. Also, the herb Agnus Castus (Vitex) balances hormone disorders - I tried this and noticed quite an improvement in my skin.

  46. QUESTION:
    girls, some advice please?
    Ok, I'm a 25 year old male (jeez 26 next week!). My hair has started to thin/recede quite a bit around the temples. I'm worried about the impact it's going to have on my dating chances. So I've started researching hair loss treatments; the ones you apply to your hair to prevent further thinning/promote some regrowth. But before I do so, I want to hear what you have to say. If I went bald, I'd never get implants. I wouldn't risk it given the frequently ridiculous outcomes in my opinion. But before I start using these products (and potentially doing greater damage who knows), I want to hear what you have to say. My facial features resemble more like a Nicolas Cage/Ed Norton which is also why I'm worried since I don't have that square-jawed, small-nosed kind of look (which makes bald not so bad). I mean I've had good interaction with girls thus far in my life, which results strongly from my personality/sense of humor, but I have to say that I don't think a lot of these women would have given me a chance if it weren't for my looks (which are prob above average but nothing special). What say you?

  47. QUESTION:
    Is it fair that women are allowed to cover their bald heads while men are not?
    I work at a library where my superiors have told me that it is unprofessional to wear a hat while on the job. The reason I do this is that I have lost a lot of my hair (due to "male pattern baldness") and I look really scary. I mean, it's not like I am afraid to be seen in this condition, it's just that I look more presentable if I cover my rather large, round, bare head while working with the public. I have complained to my labor union and explained to the Library Director that I think it's unfair that a woman who has a loss of hair due to cancer treatments can cover her head (for the sake of vanity), and I'm not allowed to do the same thing (for the sake of vanity, in a sense). I think this is completely unfair. What do YOU think?

    • ANSWER:
      It rather depends what you wear, doesn't it? it's not about head-covering per se

      A wig would be ok. A headscarf might be ok. But a hat is probably not ok - men or women.
      Are you suggesting your workplace is full of cancer-treatment women who are wearing hats?

      Or are you suggesting your embarrassment at your baldy bits should be accorded the same treatment as someone undergoing life-threatening treatment?

    Hey there i'm a FTM and because of health reasons i have to stop testosterone treatment which means my body will once again produce female hormones.

  50. QUESTION:
    Does isotretinoin cause hair loss?
    I'm about to start treatment for acne using Isotretinoin, but I've been a bit put off by all of the rumors surrounding the drug.

    One that I read about was that there is a possibility that the drug can cause hair to thin and fall out. Has this actually happened to somebody on the drug? Is it a rare side-effect? What causes it?

    Also, one side-effect I know for sure is that it causes skin to dry out. On average how bad is this? Does it become so dry that it's unbearably irritable, and can a woman still wear makeup, or will the dryness make it impossible? Thankyou to anybody that replies.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes. This medication has a lot to do with Hair loss and hair and skin related matters. The chemicals in this medicine viz. Isotretine itself is a very stong drug and it affects the health in many ways. So this medicine should not be administrated without the guidance of Medical practioners.

      Isotretinoin is used to treat severe, disfiguring nodular acne. It should be used only after other acne medicines have been tried and have failed to help the acne. Isotretinoin may also be used to treat other skin diseases as determined by your doctor.

      Commonly, Thinning of hair (may continue after treatment is stopped) is noticed and Hair abnormalities Hair loss,and increased fragility of hair. Increased hair growth,after treatment, especially on the face, are also noted.

Hair Loss Treatments Remedies

Female hair loss can be devastating to a womans self-image. With causes ranging from hormonal to genetic, it can often be challenging to determine the exact reason for womens hair loss and even more taxing to find a successful therapy regimen. Many women prefer to use a natural hair loss treatment, since side effects from these herbal remedies are usually mild or non-existent, as opposed to prescription or over-the-counter medications.

Minoxidil remains the most popular remedy prescribed for both male and female hair loss, but some of the reported side effects cause people to seek alternative natural therapies. In some instances, increased or darkened body hair can grow, which can be traumatic to women already struggling to cope with an unwelcome change in their appearance. At the start of the treatments, hair loss or shedding may actually increase for a short period, causing undue anxiety.

Women struggling with female hair loss who have pets in their home often prefer all-natural treatments to prescription drugs or over-the-counter pharmaceuticals. While dogs are not prone to illness from contact with Minoxidil, it is highly toxic to cats and can cause death if ingested, stepped in or spilled on their fur. Many animal lovers, along with women who simply prefer a more natural approach to their problem, turn to herbal hair loss therapies like Best of Natures Hair Remedy.

    Please I need help I feel so despereate!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      There are a couple natural options you can try out, for example a balanced diet high in protein and vitamins, containing foods like lean red meats, fish, poultry, fruits, vegetables, legumes, unsaturated fats, and water. You can also apply natural oils directly to your scalp alongside your regular shampoo and conditioner to help. Here are a few different ones to check out:

      Basil: Massaging basil hair oil into the scalp helps strengthen follicles and improves scalp circulation, which may trigger hair growth.

      Sage: Using sage as a hair rinse helps darken the hair and delay hair loss

      Bay: By adding three drops of this oil into your shampoo, it not only helps restore dull hair and stimulates hair growth, but also helps resolve the problem of dandruff

      Rosemary: Stimulates hair bulbs to renewed activity, strengthens hair, and prevents premature baldness

      Arnica: Using a hair rinse with arnica extract has been used to treat Alopecia Neurotica

      Amla: From dried amla berries, amla oil helps hair from graying prematurely, prevents shedding and dandruff, strengthens hair, and stimulates hair growth.

      I would perhaps try these first to see what kind of direct results you can get from them immediately. I hope this helps out in your case and best of luck to you.

  2. QUESTION:
    is there any home remedies for hair loss treatment?
    well...i would like to know about the remedies that can be easily prepared at home~

    • ANSWER:
      Ginkgo biloba: This popular herb is thought to improve blood circulation to the brain and skin. Herbalists believe that the increased flow of blood to the brain area delivers more nutrients to the hair follicles thus promoting hair regrowth. The recommended dose is 120-160mg of dry extract each day spread over three doses.

      Green tea (Camellia sinesis): It is thought that catechins found in green tea may inhibit the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase that converts testosterone into hair-unfriendly DHT. It is therefore believed to be effective in preventing and treating male pattern type baldness. You should drink several cups of green tea each day or take it in capsule form as instructed by the manufacturer.

      He Shou Wu (Polygonum multiflorum): Also known as Fo-Ti, this Chinese herb has traditionally been used to reduce hair loss. It is found in many commercial preparations, or in tea and capsule form.

      Pygeum (Pygeum africanum): Derived from the bark of an evergreen, it works in a similar way to green tea. It is widely used to treat prostate problems and male pattern baldness. Users should take 60-500mg per day in pill or capsule form.

      Saw palmetto (Seranoa repens): This is the current treatment of choice for many men due to its ability to protect the prostate, slow hair loss and encourage hair regrowth. It forms the core element of many commercially prepared hair loss treatments but can easily be obtained in its pure form. The recommended dose is a 160mg capsule twice each day, but make sure the ingredients are made from the berry extract not the dried berries themselves.

      Stinging nettle (Urtica diocia): This has long been favored as a means of preventing hair loss due to its ability to block the conversion of testosterone into DHT. It can be taken in pill or capsule form with an optimum dose of 50-100mg per day. It is particularly effective when combined with pygeum and saw palmetto.

  3. QUESTION:
    Hair loss remedies?
    Hi, does anyone know any hair loss treatments that actuallywork.

    My hair has been thinning over last 15 years or so, I am 40 now, and is becoming noticeable. I am not interested in a hair transplant or buying any silly old product advertised. But before I shave it all off and become a proud baldie, at least thought I'd see if any one had tried anything with some success.

    Ta

    • ANSWER:
      There are several forms of hair loss. If it is male pattern baldness (Androgenetic alopecia) then the hair loss cannot be fully cured in most cases, but just frozen for some time with the treatments availiable on market today.

      1) Hair transplant (FUE technology) creates really natural hairline, no scars, the best way to go if you have enough donor hair and money of course.

      2. Propecia (Finasteride) and Minoxidil are the only ones approved by FDA and proven to work in most men so far.

      Generic Propecia (finasteride) is also ok. I use it with same results, and unfortunately same side efefcts(a bit dry feeling in the scalp) as brand propecia. Have tried lots of herbal crap before it and laser combs, so far the only thing that prevents my hairloss, not much regrowth, but has stopped my hairloss completely.
      I buy from this pharmacy for the last 2 years - http://www.1rx.biz/generic_propecia.html . It is under per pill for 1mg propecia.also see
      http://www.propecia.com
      http://www.rogaine.com
      But before you consider to start propecia you must really study about the side effects. It can mess your hormones real bad if you are not lucky, so you must choose, hair or these side effects. Quite a big perecent have these side effects, more than Merck - the company that holds
      Propecia trademark is saying. see the link for side effects stories www.propeciahelp.com

      Mothers of newborn babies are prone to temporary hair loss after the delivery. But this is only temporary. This is because, when they are pregnant, their oestrogen level goes up.

      Our hormones govern the development of hair that appears after puberty. The male hormone, testosterone, governs beard, body hair and hair in the armpits. The female hormone, estrogen, generally prevents hair growth on the chin and encourages it to grow on the head. Occasionally women develop signs of hair loss or baldness when estrogen levels drop. Treatment with estrogen has been successful in restoring hair growth and stopping of hair loss.

There are many causes of loss of hair such as stress, poor nutrition ,medications, thyroid dysfunctions, illness, fungal infections ,hormonal problems, to mention a few. but anyway you can always try and get real results.

      year ago my husband suffered from hair loss too and he started trying everything you can imagine to stop his hair loss. the things that really worked for him was:

      1) Vitamin A - an anti-oxidant which promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp;

      2) Vitamin E stimulates circulation. Good blood circulation in the scalp is important in keeping hair follicles productive. The 'B' vitamins contribute to melanin, which gives hair its healthy color and also stimulates blood circulation;

      3) massage is also beneficial. Massage stimulates circulation. As already noted, good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Experts suggest a few minutes of daily head massage by hand. Circulation through massage may be improved by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base with massage;

      4) Try rubbing your scalp with garlic juice, Onion Juice or Ginger Juice(you can either of one out of three, Do not mix any of two or three);

      5) also used herbal treatment.in that case Provillus is a good product that helps prevent hair loss and it is an FDA approved product. I think it is very important!

      It worked and still works for him!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry Provillus but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.provillus.com/?aid=749165

    • ANSWER:
      Hair Loss

      Your hair loss may have started with a few extra hairs in the sink or in your comb. But now you can't look in the mirror without seeing more of your scalp.

      Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from your scalp and can be the result of heredity, certain medications or an underlying medical condition. Anyone — men, women and children — can experience hair loss.

      Some people prefer to let their baldness run its course untreated and unhidden. Others may cover it up with hairstyles, makeup, hats or scarves. And still others choose one of the medications and surgical procedures that are available to treat baldness. Before pursuing any of these treatment options, talk with your doctor about the cause of and best possible treatments for your hair loss.
      Why Hair Loss?

      Hair loss or baldness is a condition in which hair does not grow on the scalp after hair fall. The most common form of baldness is the development of a hair thinning condition called androgenic alopecia or male baldness which occurs in adult males.
      Types Of Hair Loss

      The nature of hair loss or baldness can vary greatly. These are the types of hair loss:

      * Androgenic alopecia: Loss of hair in men is called as androgenic alopecia.
      * Alopecia areata: Here hair loss occurs in some portions of the head.
      * Alopecia totalis: In this the hair loss occurs over the entire scalp to an extreme limit.
      * Alopecia universalis: This involves the loss of all hair from the entire body.

      The effectiveness of medications used to treat alopecia depends on the cause of hair loss, extent of the loss and individual response. Generally, treatment is less effective for more extensive cases of hair loss.

  23. QUESTION:
    What is a natural remedy for hair loss, to stop thinning of hair?
    or even grow hair back, topical or whatever type of treatment, any advice, suggestions, etc? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      After many years of research and self experimentation this was the only natural treatment I found that stops thinning and loss almost straight away and also produces new growth. My hair has completely regrown on crown....over a period of months. Where receded at front regrowth has been slower, but has virtually grown back to original hair line and though sparse at beginning, each month it became denser. Massage thoroughly with natural oils - olive oil is excellent - then using a palm held short bristled brush (soft natural boar bristles) brush vigorously so you really feel it stimulating scalp (90 /100 strokes or even more each day focusing on where loss is). After scalp adjusts you can increase brushing to 150 strokes. Will unplug blocked hair ducts indicated by painful small spots like pimples and a cause of hair loss and It will grow faster, thicker and It will force the new growth. Brushing before you apply oil is equally OK. A little shedding and breakage may occur at first but quickly stops as hair gets better anchored and stronger. Initially hairs will be weak looking and sparse. Don't be concerned if brushing uproots them as they will re-appear even stronger. It demands perseverance week in, week out to get the same results. I've found most do not persevere and so fail to get them. But have heard from some who have had equal if not better success.
      Genetics probably are a factor in hair loss. My immediate family members have severe loss. I believe this treatment saved me from the same fate. Try it you will be happy that you did!

  25. QUESTION:
    what is the cause of hair loss in women?
    Hair loss does not run in the family especially not from ages 21 to 90. Hair has been thinning out since the age of 21 and stress is not an issue. 5 generations have thick hair both sides of family. doctors seem not concerned. daughters hair falling in clumps. 2 out of 5 have same problem. help
    any treatments or remedy's please.

    • ANSWER:
      For women, hair loss usually begins at menopause. Although hair loss in females normally occurs after the age of 50 or later when it does not follow events like pregnancy, chronic illness, crash diets, and stress among others, there have been rare cases reported in which hair loss affects women as young as 15 or 16. Ultimately, though, the balding process and rate vary from person to person. Whether it is slow or rapid, the individual would usually notice the first signs of hair loss. Thinning hair on the top and sides of the scalp is the most prevalent and immediately noticeable symptom.

      Factors such as a person’s activities, diet, medications, natural hormones, pregnancy and childbirth, use of birth control pills, improper hair care and certain diseases can also contribute to hair loss. The extent to which these factors affect an individual varies from one person to the next. While chemical treatments, pollution, hair-styling products and blow-drying have not been found to directly cause hair loss, they can dry and weaken hair, increasing breakage and perpetuating hair loss. A lack of good blood circulation to the scalp may also contribute to hair loss. When the hair root is well supplied with blood it is stronger and less susceptible to the shrinking effects caused by hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone). When not, the roots and follicles can weaken and eventually lead to hair falling out.

      If hair loss is something you’re already encountering, your first step should be to educate yourself and determine the severity and scope of your hair loss. Bosley offers various FDA approved hair loss treatments and the only permanent hair loss solution- surgical hair restoration. Consultations at Bosley are offered to address any questions you might have on hair loss and hair loss treatments. As always, Bosley consultations are free of charge and there is no obligation to move forward to doing a procedure.

      Generally speaking, your available options depend on the type of hair loss you have, the degree of hair loss you currently experience and the cosmetic goals you have for restoring lost hair. Propecia and Minoxidil treatments, as well as laser therapy with the Bosley LaserComb, are most effective in retaining existing hair, but are not as effective in re-growing lost hair. All these treatments provide temporary solutions–any benefits received in retaining or restoring hair are lost if you stop treatment.

      For those with more advanced hair loss who are looking to restore hair and not merely retain their existing hair, surgical hair restoration is the best bet. If you are looking for a permanent solution to hair loss, then surgical hair restoration performed at Bosley might be your final and only option. Bosley offers the only permanent and the most significant solution to hair loss–surgical hair transplantation.

    is there any home made hair-loss treatment?
    i have a hereditary hair-loss problem. my paternal family has the problem and almost all of them are going bald. am a girl and my having severe hair-loss. i fear that if this continues for some more years, i will go bald. i need help if you have any home-made/ home remedies. anything that i should eat/drink/use/apply, etc would help me decrease my hair loss. another problem is that i have tremendously greasy/oily scalp so i have to wash my hairs every 2 days and due to this i have more hair-loss.
    please i need help.
    thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      If you haven’t used T/Gel shampoo, you should give it a shot. It helps normalize dry scalp, which is often associated with hair loss. In the case of greasy hair, I suspect It would also help. It smells like tar but the stuff works great.
      I don’t know of any homemade hair loss treatments. But, if you are considering natural hair loss products, consider checking out a comparison site before making a decision. The blog I reference below has a link to a site that compares several hair loss products for women as well as men.

  28. QUESTION:
    I want to ask a very important Q about my HAIR LOSS (baldness) which is as under :?
    I am a 28 year old male and I am losing hair from the top of my head so that I can easily notice the baldness coming with a mirror. I am very much concerned about it and need URGENT help for it. I have read about two medicines, one is Regaine Extra Strength (solution) which contains minoxidil, and the other medicine is Finasteride which are oral tablets. I want to ask if anyone has ever used it for the same purpose and the affects of it or if anyone else knows any other remedies for baldness other than treatments shown in ads. PLZ HELP !!!

    • ANSWER:
      Topical minoxidil and oral finasteride are the only two treatments currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration [USA] for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia. Both of these medications prevent further hair loss but are only able to partially reverse the baldness. Both require continuous use to maintain effectives. As effectiveness may take 6-12 months to become apparent, these agents should be used for at least 1 year before deciding whether to continue treatment.

  29. QUESTION:
    can anybody know a remedy for loss of hair, as a result of a treatment for thyroid ?
    do anybody know about alternative treatment to thyroid ?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Eldad

      Here is the answer you need.

      Cause
      Hair loss can occur due to low thyroid functioning, poor digestion, parasites, nutrient deficiencies such as iron or biotin, hormonal problems, aging, trauma, post-pregnancy, skin disease, diabetes, chemotherapy, and stress. All of these factors must be considered and ruled out to be sure hair loss is not part of a more serious, underlying condition.

      Caution: If you begin to lose large amounts of hair suddenly and for no apparent reason, seek prompt medical attention to rule out the possibility of an underlying disease.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Natural Cures

      Aromatherapy: For temporary or severe hair loss, massage lavender, rosemary, thyme, or sage essential oils directly onto the scalp.

      Ayurveda: The Ayurvedic herbs ashwagandha and amla can help stimulate hair growth in cases that are not due to genetic predisposition.

      Diet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet high in potato (with skins intact), green and red peppers, sprouts, and unpeeled cucumbers. Such foods are high in silica, which gives strength to hair and nails. Foods high in iron, such as some lean meats and raisins, are also important. Sea vegetables such as kelp are also good for the hair and support proper thyroid function. Be sure to check for and eliminate any foods to which you may be allergic or sensitive.

      Herbs: Massage the scalp nightly with an oil made of one part rosemary oil and two parts almond oil.

      Homeopathy: Sepia, Arnica, and Acidum nit. are useful homeopathic remedies.

      Juice Therapy: Drink the combined juice of carrot, beet, spinach, nettle, and alfalfa, adding a bit of onion.

      Lifestyle: Circulation to the scalp is important and can help prevent hair loss. Increase exercise, scalp massage, and try lying on a slant board for 15 minutes a day.

      Nutritional Supplementation: The following supplements are essential for healthy hair growth: flaxseed oil, biotin, niacin, vitamin B complex, folic acid, vitamin B5, PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid), silica, iron, trace minerals, and zinc. Free form amino acids, especially cysteine, can also be helpful, as can kelp tablets, desiccated liver, and thyroid glandulars.

      Although elevated levels of copper can lead to brittle hair and split ends, low copper levels can also result in hair loss, and should therefore also be considered.

      Topical Treatment: Rub castor oil into the scalp for ten minutes, then apply a hot damp towel for 30 minutes, and then cover your head with a plastic shower cap and keep in place overnight. The next morning, wash out your hair. Do this for two nights, then, repeat this using extra virgin olive oil for two nights, then use wheat germ oil for two nights. Rest one night and repeat seven-day cycle.

      Apple cider vinegar used as a hair rinse can also help stimulate hair growth.

      Best of health to you

      Cheers

  30. QUESTION:
    Please help with hair loss?
    Hey everyone. I've been experiencing extreme hair loss these past couple of months and I'm getting worried. I can feel my hair getting thinner and thinner and lessening as well. My hair is colored so I'm assuming that has a lot to do with it but I really need help with trying to thicken it. I've used Biotin shampoo products from Whole Foods but all it did was dry out my hair.

    Does anyone know any successful solutions or products that will help stop the hair loss, thicken my hair or help with regrowth? And if anyone has any advice on home remedies or treatments that could also help, I would really appreciate it. Thank you so much!

    • ANSWER:
      I had the same problem. I did the following and now my hair is healthy again :)

      Apply vitamin E mixed with your shampoo on the hair. massage very very gently and leave it for about 5 minutes and wash off. Then apply a good conditioner.
      you can buy vitamin E capsules from the pharmacist. use one capsule per day. Do this treatment daily.
      Also apply some oil (preferably coconut oil) daily into dry hair and leave it.
      Also, (if u have enough time) apply a fair amount of coconut oil into ur hair until it is a bit wet with oil and massage very gently with finger tips for about 15 minutes and leave it for about 1 hour before bathing.

      And, i have heard , applying raw red onions on the scalp reduced hair loss..

      hope this helps :)

  31. QUESTION:
    Alternative treatment for post-baby hair loss?
    So I've searched a bit on Y!A and found out that it seems to be pretty common to loose some hair after giving birth and it can keep happening for as long as 3 years. It's been 8 months already and I reckon I'll be bald by then at this rate so are there any natural remedies that could help to slow/stop it (taking into consideration that I am breastfeeding)?

    • ANSWER:
      Post pregnancy hair loss is common, and perfectly natural. Normally, people lose about 100 hairs each day, but during pregnancy, hormones keep them from falling out. After the baby is born and hormones drop back to normal levels, the extra hairs fall out.

  32. QUESTION:
    Treatment for hair loss.?
    I am 21yrs old male staying in Pune. My hair fall is increasing like anything. Also my hair has become very dull and weak from roots. I approximately lose 50-60 hair everyday. My scalp is very very oily.
    Please suggest me some remedies which can show effect quickly and as fast as possible. I dont want to become bald so early. Its not hereditary. My hairfall has become a nightmare for me. Somebody please HELP!!!! Also tell me if somebody knows any good Dermatologists in Pune.

    • ANSWER:
      You need to stop eating foods that cause the production of estrogen NOW. This means cutting out of your diet ALL soy products (soya milk, soy sauce etc.) It also means not taking flaxseed oil supplements.

      These two steps, if done consistently over a few weeks, will halt the production of estrogen in the body - and this will mean no NEW DHT will form. But, there is one last step in this process. You need to remove the EXISTING DHT from your scalp ASAP. This DHT is LODGED on your scalp and will continue to cause hair loss.

      To remove this DHT from your scalp take a DHT removing agent. There is info about the one that worked for me over at the blog in the source box below.

      Good luck

  33. QUESTION:
    Best Hair loss product..?
    I'm only 20 and my hair is thinning, I do not have any bald spots and my hair dresser says she doesn't see any signs of balding and that I just have fine hair.. but she hasn't been my hairdresser for long..

    Does anyone have any treatments, old remedies or tips to help me?

    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Find the 'cause' before you can find the solution, then eliminate them. Your hair will improve. Remember, whatever it was that caused them to fall out in the first place, it took years to get in your system, it will takes years to flush them down, so don't expect miracles overnight.

      So many reasons why you have hair loss:

      Supplements, steroids, hereditary, hair dyes perming, straightening, diet, having babies (yes I read once it happened to her), stress, medications with testosterone, certain antidepressants, menopause, anti-acne, and too much of everything. Add to that the 7,000 + toxic found in your home, plus pollution found outdoors. Your hair is crying for help!
      When your teeth falls or get cavities, do you blame the toothpaste?

      When your hair is crying for help, that's when it's too late to do anything about it, and hair products can not reverse the problem.

      They also say you normally lose 100-200 hair a day, but I don't. I lose about 7-8 every time I brush it, so that's about 100 per week, give or take.

      The majority of hair problems here are from girls in their 30s, asking how to care for their damaged hair, what product to make their hair grow, why their hair falls out, and why their shampoo or conditioner don't work. Women between 60-80 have that same problem, but it took them years to get there. And those same 30 & under girls are giving advice here? Now, I'm answering more problems re: hair fall or hair not growing from girls under 15. Go figure!

      Even the cheapest shampoo can do magic for your hair, so it must be what you're doing AFTER you wash it. Shampoos and vitamins might make your hair look and feel healthier, but they won’t put more hairs on your head.

      According Dr. Melissa Piliang, a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic. Americans spent an estimated 6 million on hair loss products last year, and chances are some of that money was not well spent. Don’t let charming salon owners, seductive ads or fancy gimmicks convince you otherwise.

  34. QUESTION:
    hi all.. remedy for HAIR LOSS AND DANDRUFF...?
    I am having dandruff.. i browsed net and then found "APPLE CIDER VINEGAR" as a good treatment for dandruff.. I am currently living in NEWZEALAND. I got raw apple cider vinegar (mother vinegar) and used it for two times after shampooing.. From that onwards,(past three weeks) I am losing much hair after wash.. really very much of hair loss on the day of shampooing.. i have also been using olive oil scalp treatment before taking head bath for past 3 months.. I am from India.. have moved to new zealnd 2 months back. some of my friends say that different water in New Zealand did not suit my hair.. but before using vinegar everything was fine for first three weeks in new zealnd(befor using apple cider). so what shud i do now to prevent this greater hair loss cos of vinegar? any one have similar experience? i am using head and shoulder and dove conditioner.though oilve oil,head and shoulder did not treat my dandruff they did not induce greater hairloss too.. i have stopped using apple cider vinegar.. have used it only twice on my head.. it did not treat dandruff also.. so friends wat can i do to stop my hair loss? i am worried for washing my head because of this:-(

    • ANSWER:
      Try using baby or kids shampoo. I had dandruff too, but the dandruff shampoos were too harsh on my scalp and caused more dandruff. As soon as I switched to a gentler shampoo, I didn't have a problem with it. I also use dove conditioner but I use the stuff for dry hair. Changes in the climate can effect your hair. I used to live in an extremely humid place and then I moved to the desert. I have to use more conditioner out here then back home.
      The apple cider vinegar was probably to much for your scalp to handle and that's probably why your hair has started to fall out. It will most likely go back to normal if you stop using the dandruff shampoo, because the dandruff shampoo strips the natural oils from your scalp like the apple cider vinegar did.
      If you are still having issues with dandruff after switching to a baby shampoo, you can add a couple of drops of tea tree oil to the shampoo(not to the bottle, but to the shampoo that you are going to use for that day). I wouldn't do this everyday, maybe once a week, or every few days.
      I hope this helps! Good luck!

    • ANSWER:
      I dont think is because of the apple cider vinegar, its not strong enough to make your hair fall out. I think it is the difference in the water, and it was just a coincidence that ryou used the vinegar at the same time, so now you think thats the reason, but I dont think so.

      How old are you? If you are going through puberty, that could be why, as some girls experience hair loss. Have you been stressed, do you use heated appliances on your hair? There are many possible reason.

      If I were you, I would massage olive oil into the hair and scalp, you could also use coconut oil, that works even better. Leave this on for 30 minutes and then rinse out and shampoo and condition as normal. If you dont think head and shoulders is working for you, there are many other anti dandruff shampoos, have a look at your local store. While there, also get a conditioner for damaged hair, as it is possible your hair is not falling out but breaking off at the damaged points.

      Also, never brush your hair when wet, pat dry and leave it to dry for a little then comb through very gently starting at the bottom going up to stop more hair loss. If you use heated appliances, always use a heat protectant spray

      Good luck, im sure your hair will go back to normal if you take care of it :)

  37. QUESTION:
    Hair loss problem - need help ?
    I am 24 year old girl and I am having this problem since I had malaria 5yers ago. After that I had beauty treatment for my hair which included hair oil massage and some kind of hair pack. that time I had nice hair groth, but as I stoped that treatment again my hair fall started. though I got good result from that treatment I don't want to go for it as it was costly.

    My hair's texture is much much better than before. But the only problem is thining of my hair and slow but continuous hair loss. If you have any home remedy or any tips regarding this then please help me.

    Do I have to do any test for this problem? (I have no thyroid problem.)

    What should I do to stop my hair fall?

    While massaging your hair you should move your finger tips or the skin of head?

    How often you should do hair massage (in days/weeks/months)? If you are doing it daily will it cause in baldness?

    Does low calcium can cause your hair to suffer?

    Thanks to all those who will answer my questions.

    • ANSWER:
      Nutrition is very important. Protein and B vitamins especially. Biotin is supposed to be good to support hair growth. I take that and and Omega 3/6/9 from GNC. I'm also currently trying hair supplements (Hairtopia) but I don't know if it works yet, I bought a Nioxin starter set at the recommendation of the receptionist at the salon. I don't know if that works yet either but all of these things have been recommended so I figure it can't hurt. (Although I think the Hairtopia may be making me break out.) A lot of people recommend prenatal vitamins but I think any vitamin is good and that its the pregnancy, not the vitamins that makes hair grow.

  38. QUESTION:
    what is the best treatment for alopecia?(hair loss)?
    are there some home remedy or vitamins we can take.

    • ANSWER:
      Hair loss in men is known as androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness. Testosterone, the puberty hormone is the cause of male pattern baldness. This hormone brings masculinity in the body of a male child. After finishing its work testosterone converts into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which clogs hair follicles on the scalp. Hair follicles perform the task of holding hair and providing them with essential nutrients for growth. As hair follicles reduces in size, hair also become thin with them. The meaning of thin hair is weak hair; weak hair fall easily. Once hair fall out of a DHT affected hair follicle, no new hair grow their and that hair follicle is closed completely forever. Numerous such hair follicles constitute bald spot on the head of a man who is suffering from male pattern baldness.

      Propecia is an ideal solution for such a hair loss problem. Propecia has finasteride, which is a special type of steroid type II 5-alpha reductase. This active ingredient of Propecia inhibits synthesis of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Due to its action testosterone synthesizes into 5-alpha DHT. This chemical compound is a not a harmful substance for hair follicles. This way Propecia, the appropriate hair loss treatment strikes over the root cause of male pattern baldness.

      For more info on Propecia visit: http://www.haircaretips.net/propecia.html

      One of the more common approaches to reversing baldness on the market today is the popular and successful drug Propecia. All drugs and medications come with the risk of side effects, and in some cases, taking a medication for one thing can mask or hide other developing health problems. In the case of Propecia, recent research indicates that using the drug can alter the results of the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test used to screen for prostate cancer in men.

      The study found that Propecia cuts PSA levels in half after one year of use. While there is no PSA threshold below which cancer risk is completely eliminated, or above which cancer is a certainty, the conventional normal range is between 0 and 4.0.

      However, for men on Propecia, a PSA level of 2.0 could indicate prostate cancer risk.

      "If you've been on Propecia for a year, you should double the PSA score," D'Amico said.

      "If you are on Propecia for more than a year, don't multiply the score; look at the change in PSA over time. If it goes up by more than three-tenths of a point, consider a biopsy," he said.

      Herbal Alternative to Propecia:

      Recently, medical science has finally identified the main cause of hair loss. Now, it is a known medical fact that hair loss stems from both genetic and hormonal causes. Androgenetic Alopecia or "male pattern hair loss" is implicated in 95% of hair loss cases. The key is a hormonal byproduct called DHT (dihydrotestostrone). The more DHT that gets put into your body, the more your hair follicles become thinner and finer until the hair is permanently lost.

      Provillus is the natural drug that limits the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and in turn prevents hair loss.

      The Breakthrough formula of Provillus was designed to block DHT and supply the proper nutrients to your body specifically tailored to prevent hair loss and to help you regrow hair naturally.

  39. QUESTION:
    What works for hair to re-grow back?
    Hi I am a 23 year-old-male and since 2009 I noticed baldness, that some part of my scalp have less to no hair present. Now, I don't have any baldness issue in my family from both father and mother side. I have been trying rogain, and other solutions sold out for hair re-growth. Also, I use hair oil such as a coconut, or mustered. none have work so far, everything seems the same.
    So, if anyone knows a good remedy, or a solution that works for sure and has done so, pls let me know.
    Hair loss treatment such as surgery is to expensive, so thats not an option either.

    Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      If you don't have any family history of baldness, then that's great news. We can rule out "male pattern hair loss" for the time being.

      At your age, the cause of hair loss can be variable. Are you stressed or on a diet? Maybe if you relax a bit or eat well (especially on proteins), this may reverse your hair loss.

      Also, you can try Nisim Biofactors, this is an all natural/herbal hair loss treatment that is safe to use even after long term use.

  45. QUESTION:
    Dry scalp and hair loss in 23 year old female?
    I have always been a little paranoid about my hair. When I was in high school the birth control shot caused my hair to thin pretty severely. I started the Mirena in 2008 and my hair had begun thickening back up over the past year or so. Then, I was pretty confident about my hair health and got it permed back in July. I can tell it's started thinning out again. I've also acquired dry scalp and dandruff since getting my hair permed. Today I tried a warm olive oil treatment on my hair, but I think all that's done was made my hair feel oily. I've recently had all kinds of blood work and the only deficiency I have is vitamin D which should have been corrected with vitamin D megadoses. I do have an overgrowth of yeast and found out I'm also allergic to yeast so I've had to go on an anti-candida diet over the past week. Any ideas on what this could be and how to remedy it?

    • ANSWER:
      Revivogen is one of the best hair loss treatments I have used until now. It has no side effects, it inhibits DHT which means stops hair loss and increases the volume of hair through its shampoo and conditioner. Furthermore, when the hair loss problem stops, more hair remain on the scalp thus increasing hair count as well. This treatment can be a stand alone treatment or complimentary in a regime. I have used it with Propecia but due to some small side effects I stopped taking Propecia and stayed with Revivogen. Here is a website that sells Revivogen:

  47. QUESTION:
    Hair loss and fungus(Abudhabi)?
    Hai,Since the last 2 years onwards iam suffering from fungus infection on my scalp of my head.I did several treatments.But no scope.Now iam in Abudhabi.Can anyone suggest me a good doctor either in Abudhabi or Dubai?Can anyone suggest a remedy for this issue?

    • ANSWER:
      Fungus cannot survive in a highly oxygenated area. You need to exercise like mad, and drink a lot of boiled water that has been cooled down to room temperature. Oxygen from the air your breathing and oxygen from the water your drinking. You should be exercising so much, that you drink 4 litres of water a day. A loss of hair can also be caused by a lack of protein, so make sure you get enough protein. Remember.... more oxygen is key.

  48. QUESTION:
    are there any natural ingredients that could be used as perfume for the hair?
    well basically my problem is, i had suffered from hair loss.. and one of the reasons is that my curly hair can't stand shampoos *oh and my body lacks some important elements too..* that's not the point, my point is i started using natural ingredients to wash and condition my hair for a while now..
    but i started to notice that those natural mixtures leave some kind of undesirable faint smells... unlike chemical shampoos hose mixtures have no perfumes..
    so i started to use rose water to make my hair smell better.. but i fear it might have any side-effect on my hair..
    should i continue using rose water?
    and are there any other remedies that could make my hair smell nice after those treatments?

    • ANSWER:
      The rose water should be just fine! But have you considered putting some sort of scented oil in the natural shampoo mixture? You could use rose or lavender oil. Or perhaps sandalwood, orange, jojoba, avocado, or grapeseed! They all smell wonderful and are common, natural ingredients that are safe for your hair!

  49. QUESTION:
    Can anybody help me about the best treatment/remedy for my dog's skin disease?
    I have a 4month old female Dachshund, and as of now she is suffering from skin irritation as characterized by a wound which has the presence of surface pus & slight hair-loss within the area. Presently, she has 5 very small & 3 average-sized wound. She regularly takes her Vitamins, & bathes twice-a-week.
    here's a picture almost similar to my dog's skin condition.

    http://www.vet.ed.ac.uk/clive/cal/DiagDerm/Images/photos/Zoom/collarette.jpg

    • ANSWER:
      They look like hot spots. You should take her to the vet, as they generally need antibiotics to clear them up. Depending on how irritated she is, she may also need a shot of cortisone to damp things down a bit.

      Bathing her twice a week may actually be contributing to her skin problems. You really shouldn't be bathing her more than about once every two weeks. Over-frequent bathing disrupts the normal protective barrier of the skin, making the dog more prone to skin infections.

      Why does she take vitamins? If you have her on a half-decent dog food, there's no need for extra supplementation.

Hair Loss Treatments Reviews

UltraGrowth - Full Customer Review

I don't know if you have heard all the news about this new hair loss treatment system but i was sure sucked in by it all, especially seeing as my hair loss always shyed my confidence and made me keep my hat on when I went out.

Anyhow i thought i would share my thoughts and opinions and general information on the UltraGrowth product in the form of a real customers review.

Hope you like it as im not really a writer myself but do enjoy sharing my thoughts and opinion's.

Firstly - What is UltraGrowth?

Thought i would start by telling you exactly what UltraGrowth is and what it does!

It is an at home system to grow back lost hair and i heard about it when searching for ways to stop my hair loss and found they were a newer company (or so i am aware) who only sell their product online.

Once you get your package and open it it has the bottles inside with the instructions on the box unlike most of the others ive used in the past which means i don't have to guess how much i should be using.

When you put it on for the first time even with my highly sensitive scalp it doesn't cause redness like others and even after me using it for about 15 days now it still hasn't had any negative effects and others ive talked too have had none either so as far as im concerned its 110% safe even with my sensitive scalp.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Hair loss products that work?
    I found a site called

    thegoods

    The site reviews hair loss treatment products. Have you used any of the hair growth products compared on this site. If so, which products worked well for you?

    • ANSWER:
      The site you found - http://thegoods.info/Natural_Hair_Loss_Treatments.html - seems like a great place for men and women experiencing hair loss to find hair loss products. Personally, I would go with one of the natural hair loss products on the site like hair genesis. I'd love to say one of the hair growth products worked miracles for me but I haven't used the site yet.

      According to the site, the hair loss treatments have a money back guarantee. As such, why don't you just try one of the products and return it if you're not happy with the results? Just a thought.

  2. QUESTION:
    Would you consider using hair loss treatments?
    I have a friend that is 29 and slowly losing his hair. Right now it is long and he is afraid to cut it because it might show more that he is losing his hair. This is genetic and can not do much about it. Would you suggest him to cut it and start using hair loss treatments such as Rogaine? I don't know much about hair loss treatments and would love get an opinion or review about them from you.

    • ANSWER:
      There are more important things than hair loss treatments.
      Let a scientist explain WHY it became genetic and you will discover they are pseudoscientific applied statistical nitwits.

      For sure there are taoist (or maybe other) exercises and herbs that could help, but it's all very delicate and what might help for one may not help for another.

      When you get involved in these type of exercises, the attention for how much hair you have will disappear quickly :) .

    any experience with treatments for hair loss?
    My hair is thinking around the temples. I'm 25 years old. I'm not sure whether to start using rogaine or finasteride. I'm a bit scared since some reviews are negative. I don't think I'd ever have transplants simply because I think I'd rather be bald (I have rarely seen ones which look natural). So may be the aforementioned products are my only hope. What do you guys think? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Rogaine foam has worked very well in my case, even on the hairline... beyond maintenance... actual major regrowth

  5. QUESTION:
    Hair loss treatments question?
    I'm 18 and have had my hair thinning for about 3 years and it appears to have quickened over the last year/6 months...
    I've researched and have been using;
    Green tea supplements (along with drinking green tea),
    Ginkgo Biloba (which i have been using for about 4 years anyway).

    I'll admit i dont lead the healthiest of lifestyles but i do some weight training atleast once a week and have cut out crisps, chocolate and alot of fatty foods (although not completely).

    I have recently been looking into treatments such as Procerine and couldnt find any bad review, then stumbled upon a site where the admin told a member that Procerin (along with alot of other treatments) will only work as long as you use it, when you stop all the 'regrown' hair will simply fall out asif it had never been there...

    I'd like to know if there are any other treatments i can try,
    I have recently started taking Saw Palmetto but dont think that it is having much of an affect if any...

    Are there any other natural/herbal treaments out there that i can try?
    And are there any medical tablets etc that will not cause the hair to fall out after you stop using them?
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      as we know - hair loss can be caused by many different reasons! There are many causes of loss of hair such as stress, poor nutrition ,medications, thyroid dysfunctions, illness, fungal infections ,hormonal problems, to mention a few.

      year ago my husband suffered very much from dandruff and hair loss too and he started trying everything you can imagine to stop his hair loss. the things that really worked for him was:

      1) Vitamin A - an anti-oxidant which promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp;

      2) Vitamin E stimulates circulation. Good blood circulation in the scalp is important in keeping hair follicles productive. The 'B' vitamins contribute to melanin, which gives hair its healthy color and also stimulates blood circulation;

      3) massage is also beneficial. Massage stimulates circulation. As already noted, good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Experts suggest a few minutes of daily head massage by hand. Circulation through massage may be improved by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base with massage;

      4) Try rubbing your scalp with garlic juice, Onion Juice or Ginger Juice (you can either of one out of three, Do not mix any of two or three);

      5) also he used herbal treatment - TrichoZed and Provilluss (do not use Rogaine - it will not work!)

      Those are a good products that helps prevent hair loss and contains Biotin and the clinically tested ingredients approved by the FDA to help re-grow your hair.! I think it is very important!

      It worked and still works for him!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry TrichoZed and Provillus but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here

      http://www.trichozed.info/ingredients.php

      (TrichoZed™ will produce noticeable hair growth in 30 to 45 days. A consistent use of TrichoZed™ ensures permanent results within 6 months. Further use shall maintain optimal health of your hair.)

      and here

      http://www.provillus.com/?aid=221781

      (Provillus™ will produce noticeable hair growth in 40. A consistent use of TrichoZed™ ensures permanent results within ~5 months.)

      It enhances hair growth by blocking DHT (Dihydrotestostrone) - a major cause of hair loss!

      Also Informative video about Provillus - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ydvCHhbRkk

    • ANSWER:
      The symptom of hair loss could be an indication of a hormone imbalance (an example only) such as with the thyroid but the only way to know for sure is to see your doctor for further evaluation. Before even talking to the doctor though I would recommend letting your mom know what's going on so that she can help you keep an eye on it.

    hii i'm a 21 years old female and my hair loss story started in feb 2011 i would lose so much hair during the day and even more when i shower , it was so depressing for me, i kept losing hair and started taking multivitamins and eating healthy and used shampoos that supposedly stops hair loss(lieeee) however i took some blood tests and my hemoglobin levels were at the lower limit and normal iron so i dont think anemia was the cause!! i did my thyroid function tests and they were normal, but my hair still fell out like crazy and thats when i bought this super expensive treatment from vichy called dercos aminxel SP94 cause i was afraid to use minoxidil cause i heard it might make more hair to shed in the beginning!! i didnt see any improvement until the 4th week, cause at the first 3 weeks i even shed more!!
    i went to see a dermatologist and did some blood tests and my testosterone levels were at the higher limits so she prescribed me diane 35 and minoxidil, yet i was still reluctant to use this treatment since BCP make hair loss so i went to see an endocrinologist who told me that diane35 is strong and recommended i took yasmin or yaz to lower my testosterone levels!!
    so i did take yaz!
    and i finished my vichy treatment and still some hair shedding is happening, im thinking to take MINOXIDIL but im scared from the side effects like shedding, facial hair growth which would be ugly along with the breakouts yaz made me!!
    i need help :( i read soooo many reviews regarding this problem and yet i haven reached a decision :(

    • ANSWER:
      The most important thing you can do to prevent hair loss is to utilize natural hair loss products for hair care. But of course, you may also consider the following natural tips to be helpful in preventing the dilemma from happening. This is even before you think of hair loss treatments.

      Scalp massages) This is a better way to prevent hair loss because it can stimulate your scalp. You can massage your scalp with any natural massage oil at least five to seven minutes. This process can help accelerate the flow in the scalp by eliminating the dead skin and sediments obstructing the development of healthy hair and the good condition of the follicles. Conditioning of the follicles is considered as the first step to maintaining healthy hair growth.

      Shampoo selection) Select a shampoo that is suitable for your hair type. When you are buying a shampoo make sure that you choose the product that will nourish your scalp and not the one that can cause irritation and clog your follicles by leaving sediments on your scalp. Each time you clean your hair, it is best if you are going to massage your scalp as well.
      Hair styling techniques) Try to loosen up your hair so that it can breathe properly. Hair accessories can affect the health of your hair, especially if you always make sure that you ponytail it tightly.

      Avoid chemicals) If possible, avoid putting your hair under stress like treating it with a lot of chemicals and processes that will trigger hair loss. The chemicals used in hair treatments can deplete the interior configuration and external connections of the hair passage. This can lead to hair fall at its source.

  13. QUESTION:
    Females, Dianette for hair loss - Has this worked for anyone? Whats an alternative?
    Hi all - Question for the ladies...

    Privately, I was prescribed Dianette for hair loss (General all over loss and thinning) My own GP Had never even heard of using Dianette for Hair loss only excessive Facial/Body hair...

    I was wondering if anyone else had tried using this and what their results were?

    I am off the pill now as would like to try for a child but is there an alternative tablet or treatment that is anti male hormones?

    Any respones would be much appreciated. This is such an awful condition and as a woman its causing me so much distress.

    My private doctor suggested Regaine but I am not sure whether to try it as read mixed reviews.

    I am late 20s in the UK its thought I started losing hair due to stress in 2007 i am not stressed anymore (Well not to that level!) I have had tests etc and been told i possibly have mild PCOS but have regular periods etc.

    • ANSWER:
      Dianette stops my hair from shedding. Another option is Spironolactone which you can take as well as Dianette. It's a diuretic for blood pressure which has an anti androgen effect (I take them both for acne and they also help with the mild hair shedding I have).

      The herb Saw Palmetto has an anti androgen effect. I haven't tried it but it works for some people. Also, the herb Agnus Castus (Vitex) balances hormone disorders - I tried this and noticed quite an improvement in my skin.

  14. QUESTION:
    Female Hairloss..... Experience, suggestions, treatment that WORKS to regrow hair????!!!!?!?!?
    I'm a white 21 y/o female. I've had fine, straight hair my whole life, and in the past couple years its been progressively thinning out. I've seen a dermatologist several times, and he's said that it's probably alopecia. He recommended Rogaine but I've read a lot of bad reviews on it (like if you stop taking it all your hair falls out, or you can be allergic and have worse hair loss from just one treatment!?!?), so I've been too scared to try it. My hair is noticeably thinned out on my crown and above my temples.....
    So much so that the only way I wear my hair is with a little puff up top (thank god that's in style at least) or else if I just leave it parted I look sickly.

    SO....
    ANY advice? Experiences? Forums/websites that might be helpful? And please Please let there be somebody who knows of something that will actually work to help regrow my hair or at least keep what I have. I can't afford surgery/laser treatments.
    If this gets much worse I'm just going to ask for wigs for christmas this year....
    Thank you for the advice all. I take a multivitamin, biotin, vit. E, and B complex daily. I've been taking the biotin and vit. E for maybe a year or so, but haven't seen any effect other than my nails grow insanely and are super hard (which is awesome). I'm going to go explore the ethnic hair isle tomorrow and try to find that balm, and I'll be trying the olive oil. I use John Freida shampoo, but I'm thinking I might need to shell out for Biolage(sp?) or something higher end that my barber recommends. I've never thought of wrapping my hair at night, but it does make sense that it would help keep it from breaking.

    Does anybody know anything about Rogaine though? Should I just avoid it?

    • ANSWER:
      Go to sally beauty supply and buy wild growth hair oil in a green and white bottle it works WONDERS!!Also, deep condition your hair and apply coconut oil and olive oil regularly and massage into the scalp for 15 minutes to stimulate growth.And go to the ethnic hair care isle ( i know your not ethnic but w.e) and there should be something in a brown box called Dr.Miracles nape and crown regrowth balm, these things in combination should really help you regrow your hair .Take biotin tablets they make your hair grow faster and wrap your hair in a silk or satin bonnet at night to control breakage =] i hope i helped.

  18. QUESTION:
    Suggestions on getting healthy hair? or better yet prevent it from falling?
    Hi, I know its been asked, I reviewed the resolved questions, but most of these girls had tendencies of dying their hair, or curling it often, bleach their hair, etc.

    I'm only 23, exercise 3-4 times a week, eat very healthy, drink vitamins, I have NEVER dyed my hair (and don't plan on), I trim my hair every 3 months, I drink water regularly, and ugh! I also DO NOT use curling irons as often as most girls. I also have bought expensive shampoos Joico, Nexus, Sebastian, etc. At most, I style my hair twice a month for a special occasion. I typically put my hair up in a bun or french twist at work since it is so sparse.
    My hair falls out in chunks in the shower every time. I will run my hands through my hair and have all this hair hanging in my hand. Say I skip a day in showering, the accumulation of hair that should have fallen off that day, plus my 2nd day, I have a ball of hair. Literally the size of a baseball.
    I'm not bald no, my hair grows back, but my hair is very sparse/scattered. If I do a pony tail, it is about 3 cm in width. That's barely an INCH! I make my hair look fuller by using clip-in hair extensions.
    I've had this hair loss problem since I was in high school. In middle school I had so much hair it would sometimes hurt to do a ponytail because of how thick and heavy it was.

    I have just bought an oil treatment, but I was wondering if you guys had any more suggestions for me? I'm literally on a mission to get healthy hair because I don't do anything that deserves crappy sparse, dry, hair, that falls off like I'm 60 yrs old. Help! :o )

  20. QUESTION:
    I'm 14, so why is this happening to me?
    I'm a 14 year old female, and my hair began falling out today.
    That probably sounds dramatic, I know that you lose an average of 100 hairs a day, and that it's perfectly normal to lose hair, so that new ones may grow in, and all of those other informational bits. But I was in the shower today, and after my daily routine of shampooing, running my fingers through my hair, and preparing for conditioner, I realized I had strands of hair in my hands. Figuring that, because I'd just taken my hair from a ponytail, they'd only been loosened by the hair tie, I repeated this process again, with the same outcome. Worrying now, I ran my fingers through my hair again and again, combed my hair, and losing more and more strands. I've done a bit of brief research, and found a few things that could point to a few reasons for my hair loss. (Why so sudden, though?) For starters, I'm a freshman in high school. As if this wasn't enough, I'm going to college in an advanced program in my county. Because of this, my level of stress is extremely high, especially now that I'm doing poorly in two classes. I make myself stay up late every night to do homework and study, and generally finally get in bed somewhere between 2:30 AM and 4:00 AM, rising the next morning at 6:30. Another factor could be my diet. Because of my schooling, I've only been able to make time for one meal a day, in comparison to my previous 3-meals-a-day routine. I eat dinner with my family every night, but skip a lunch to study between class, and breakfast to study (or often, sleep) before.
    Before I lead to any conclusions that it's stress or my diet that's creating this mess, I'll admit: as far as hair goes, I've committed a deadly sin or two. I was a long-time abuser of heat products, straightened my hair for a little over two years, and teased for the latter half of this period, which led to my hair being dry and broken. I unplugged the heating tools for a while, and have only recently picked them up every once and a while. A few days ago, I tried a hot oil treatment to heal my hair, it was VO5, and I checked the box for warnings, but found none. Could this potentially be a problem? Does this product have a history/bad reviews? The last thing I felt I'd mention was alopecia. I don't know anything really about AGA, but my family doesn't (to my knowledge, everyone in my house is sleeping, mind you,) have a history of having AGA, but I won't rule out the possibility.
    What could be causing this sudden hair loss? I've never gone through this sort of thing, throughout my years of hair-mutilation, or any time between, so what could have happened? If you have any sort of solutions, please let me know. Serious answers only, please.
    Post script- I also understand that pregnancy/giving birth can lead to hair loss. I'd like to throw in the fact that no, I'm not pregnant, I'm fourteen, and I'm smarter than that, thank you very much.
    Post Post Script- If you're 14 and pregnant and reading this, please don't assume that I think you're unintelligent. Perhaps I should just edit that... but I won't. I'll just submit it. It's plenty long as it is.
    Thank you!

    Baldness at the age of 17 only? Please somebody help !?
    Hi, I am 17 years old boy and I am suffering from hair loss problem.. actually my problem started 3 years ago because of using hair gels on my hair.. i had very silky, smooth, shiny, and very thick hair and i used to apply hair gel on my hair but after using that dandruff problem started and my hair became very dull and my scalp also became very dry and flaky.. i did not knew much about hair dat time.. last year I started using SELSUN shampoo for dandruff but after using it my hair started falling like hell.. whenever I used to comb or wash my hair they fell more than normal... after that i stop using that shampoo and I consulted a homeopathic doctor to stop hair fall and to get back my lost hair.. it stopped my hair fall after few weeks and i continued my treatment so as to get rid of this problem permanently... but after some month in winter again dandruff problem started.. and i again started using that SELSUN shampoo (actually after using it again i cam to know that because of using this only my hair fall problem was started... before this i did not knew about it..) and after using it again.. my hair fall problem again started and i thought that this homeopathic treatment is of no use because i was taking it from last 10 months... later i came to know that my hair fall problem was due to using this harsh chemical based products like hair gels and shampoos... now i am very dippressed because my forehead very large and my hairlines are receding very badly.. its not a genetic problem because no one is bald in my family history.. this is because of using these products only... i wanna get back my lost hair... because of dandruff my hair roots are blocked and hair are unable to grow.. please somebody suggest me the treatment... i don't wanna use these chemical based products like rogain or propecia because its not a genetic problem... some times i think that why actors who use gels on their hair don't become bald ??

    • ANSWER:
      Hey, Sorry to hear about that...I really haven't tried any hair loss products, but i just looked one up on the walmart site. It's called Equate Extra Strength For Men Hair Regrowth Treatment. One review said this "When I ordered Equate, I had doubts that it would work to re-pave the open expanse at the top of my head. Boy! Was I wrong! I have been using it twice a day per instructions for just about a month. For several days now, I have been taking time to say Good Morning to the multitude of little silver hairs that cover my once bald pate like newly-sprouting grass on a lawn. Not only is this stuff effective, but it also is inexpensive - especially when compared to the cost of using Rog****. If your skin is bursting through the thinning hair at the top of your head, this is the product to try." I mean you can try it? I don't know if it would work out though. Try looking at more products and reading the reviews, and try you tube to see what people would say. Good-luck, I hope I helped, and you will get your hair to grow. :) Take care.

  22. QUESTION:
    Has anyone used defendex shampoo to treat mites?
    My dogs have been itching for a few months now, but have no hair loss. We took them to the vet and had skin scrapes done, but they found nothing although the vet said it is hard to see the mites. We concluded they had some type of mite and they were given shots, a chemical dip and later an application of Revolution. The itching seemed to stop for a short period after each treatment, but has come back again. I am looking for a treatment that doesn't have chemicals because I am afraid all these chemicals may do damage to my dogs. Defendex is an all natural mite shampoo, but the question is does it work? It is expensive so I'd love to hear a review from someone before I buy it. Thank you!!!

    • ANSWER:
      [http://www.amazon.com/All-Natural-Homeopathic-Pet-Naturally-Infestations/dp/B003TTQ41I]
      someone used it on guinea pigs, positive results.
      [http://www.vetionx.com/defendex.php?utm_source=productads&utm_medium=GoogleProduct]
      several positive results on there, but they're on a seller's website, so they could've been fabricated. But as far as price goes, as listed on the website isn't that much at all. Good luck, it wouldn't hurt to try.


Hair Loss Treatments For Men

Hair loss is a matter of concern affecting young and adults alike. The hair loss is a subjective phenomenon and there may be a lot of causes which could be attributed for this.

There are many potential forms and causes of hair loss ranging from genetics, skin conditions, medical illness, stress, dietary deficiencies, to immune disorders. Consulting with a medical doctor who specializes in hair loss is often necessary to determine the cause and most effective treatment.

When a hair loss condition has become permanent it can be treated with surgical hair restoration or hair transplantation.

A medical hair restoration procedure is all about creating an illusion on density of one's hair. Let's put it this way, our scalp consists of two important segments viz, donor area where the hair density is high and thinning areas where hairs have ceased to generate.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Are there any genuinely effective holistic or alternative hair loss treatments for men?
    Are there any genuinely effective holistic or alternative hair loss treatments for men that do not impact upon your health? The available chemical solutions mess with your hormones, which seems far too risky, to me ... and drugs like finisteride are still relatively new drugs and only time will tell if there are side effects. Hair loss should simply be accepted, but it is something I am not able to do yet.

    • ANSWER:
      There are several treatment options that may help to stimulate and encourage hair growth. If hair loss occurs as a result of an underlying condition or disease, then the condition needs to be treated first. The various types of hair loss are treated with specific medication which includes antibiotics, corticosteroids, or steroid injections. For more serious episodes of hair loss, surgical procedures such as hair transplants, scalp reduction or skin grafts may be performed to replace hair loss.

      Natural and holistic therapy offers a gentler alternative for people experiencing hair loss than the harsh effects of conventional medication. Treatments such as herbal and homeopathic remedies stimulate and encourage hair growth as well as support blood circulation, hormonal balance and thyroid functioning.

      Herbal remedies along with good nutritional diet (supplements in case of severe deficiency or if directed by your doctor) help hair grow stronger and more plentifully by nourishing it at the roots. They achieve this by stimulating blood flow and supplying nutrients to the hair follicles and hence promoting healthy hair growth and slowing down excessive hair loss. Although the process begins within a few days, as the hair grow slowly, the results are visible only after a few months.

      Herbs commonly used include Ginkgo biloba, Rosmarinus officinale and Xanthoxylum clavaherculis help to promote strong, abundant hair. Other powerful herbs such as Equisetum arvense, Avena sativa and Echinacea are effective combating hair loss and nourishing hair follicles.

  5. QUESTION:
    Can I use Hair Loss treatments on my hair?
    Hi :)
    I am 17 years old.
    I do not have any form of hair loss, as in- I'm not balding or anything like how you see in the picture examples in hair loss commercials.
    However, my hair did break off though at the top, due to mistreating my hair, getting relaxers and not keeping up with them, constant flat ironing, etc.
    So I was wondering, would it be safe to use hair loss treatments (like the stuff that older men/women use on their hair when they're getting hair loss due to aging)
    could that work on just helping speed up the growth in my hair? I hope this makes sense,

    i have a friend who has hair that goes about an inch passed her belly button, and after she got out of the shower i saw her squirt some hair loss product for men in her hair, and her hair looks perfectly healthy, smooth, and extremely long and thick.
    so i was wondering if this could be something i could try as well?
    i'm hoping using hair loss product on my hair at my age doesn't cause more damage or hair loss,
    but i was wondering is it a possibility to use on hair not for hair loss problems, but simply for hair growth? thank you for your time.

    • ANSWER:
      Heredity, hormones, stress, diet, illness, poor hair care – all are factors in hair loss.

      Stress, diet and illness are more temporary conditions and usually the hair loss is reversed when the anxiety-producing conditions dissipate, when the diet is improved, when hair care improves and when an illness is cured or gotten under control.

      Heredity and hormones are different matters, however. Heredity is an irreversible condition. You are a product of your parents, and hair loss is often inherited. Hormones are tricky, hidden things, however, and they have different effects on an individual basis.

      In a male, testosterone abides abundantly. There are also enzymes working on testosterone which product a substance called DHT. DHT is now known to circulate in the blood and cause other conditions, one of which is the shrinking of hair follicles. When hair follicles shrink enough, they are unable to produce and push a new hair through. As old hair dies, it is then not replaced.

      In women, hormonal imbalances can also cause hair loss. Pregnancy, childbirth and menopause all cause significant hormonal change and imbalances with both physical and mental effects. These changes can also cause hair loss, both temporary and permanent.

      Hair loss and re-growth products have been around for centuries. In ancient times, a variety of herbal and oil-based remedies were concocted and used by Egyptians, Aztecs, Mayans, and American Indians, all with some degree of effectiveness for some people. Modern medical research has focused on ways to re-open and stimulate “dead” hair follicles, so that hair growth can re-occur naturally, as well as keep the healthy follicles healthy. Thus, a number of products have become available, both by prescription and over-the-counter. They are advertised on radio and television and all over the Internet. One need only do a “google” search on hair loss, and there are literally thousands of sites and products for investigation.

      One ingredient in many hair loss products is minoxidil. Research studies have shown that in about 80% of the participants, products containing this ingredient are effective in slowing hair loss and, in some, causing re-growth to occur.

      Probably the most well known is Rogaine, available at any drug store, in varieties for both men and women. Most scientifically-produced products do have separate products for males and females, because, of course, hormones in each are different and of different levels.

      An additional product containing minoxidil is Provillus, and, again, studies have shown it to be effective. The difference between Provillus and other similar products is that the makes have added Azelaic Acid, an additional ingredient which appears to enhance the follicle repair in both men and women. Provillus has been the subject of many studies, just as the other products, and level of effectiveness may be higher.

      Provillus is available for both men and women, and the treatment is a combination of a topical liquid applied to the balding areas, as well as a pill or capsule to be taken in conjunction with the liquid. The critical key to effectiveness, according to its makers, is the addition of the azelaic acid, however, the correct amount of this acid is most important piece of this treatment.

      As with most hair loss products, the makers recommend patience. It may take from 3-6 months for improvement to occur, however, there is a money-back guarantee up to 180 days if one is not satisfied that it is working for him/her.

      Medical research is far from finished in its exploration of products which will stop hair loss and promote re-growth of “permanent” loss. As this research continues, existing producers will undoubtedly alter their products accordingly.

      Fortunately, a lot of money is being poured into the research, so hair loss sufferers, take heart!

      But I can tell you this.

      Surgery. Very very expensive and its a big IF it even will work. A buddy of mine did it at age 50 and it cost about 10K. The end result was a few new hairs but now his scalp is full of poc marks.

      Hair piece. These days they do look pretty good. Mine was very expensive and made of human hair. It was actually attached with a medical grade glue. I wore it 24/7, showered, swam, etc. It always looked normal. There was one issue. When you'd be on a date and the girl would try to run her fingers through it, you could definately tell something wasn't right. So imagine having to explain during that situation, "um yeah, i sorta wear a hair piece".

      good luck, but give the idea of shaving it off a shot.

  10. QUESTION:
    I'm going bald! What is the best hair regrowth/hair loss product/treatment? For men?
    I have a receding hairline and I don't know what to do! My hair's falling out..

    • ANSWER:
      You need to use a hair treatment like provillus. I've been on it for 5 weeks and i must say there is a major improvement in my part. It has all the vitamins your hair needs and much more.I've used it and I had very good results.Provillus contains the only FDA-approved topical ingredient clinically proven to re grow hair.

      I am sure this product will be worth your time for a second look since your money would be going into the right hands. In a survey conducted, 18 out of 20 people experienced a drastic change after using this product. None experienced any side effects.

      Provillus offers the best possible and perennial solution for this problem for both men and women. One of the best parts of the provillus treatment is that it uses natural ingredients. This has accounted for its rising popularity. Thus it leaves the other products behind in this context, since most of the products contain harmful chemicals.

      Provillus basically functions by removing the main cause of hair loss i.e. DHT. DHT damages the hair follicles and is responsible for the thinning of hair. It also restricts the re-growth of new hair. Provillus prevents its formation and it also promotes the growth of the new hair.

      I use it once a day every evening. The area which i was balding in was the top middle portion of my head, not sure why cause no one in my family is loosing hair accept me so its not genetic. I have regrowth in that area, few strands are coming up and my wife says its so much better than it was before.

      Well you might be aware that it is available for both men and women. The saw palmetto extract is basically present in the men's version whereas a combination of acids is present in the female version. Thus in addition to the solution of problem of hair loss it also nourishes hair.

      Till now Provillus has been getting positive feedbacks so you needn't worry and instead be assured. It offers the its users complete satisfaction.

  18. QUESTION:
    If spironolactone is used to treat hair loss then why did my doctor prescribe it to me?
    I have increased testosterone levels and have hair growth on my face (like on the sides, nothing compared to a man growing a beard) but obviously more hair than a woman should have. If spironolactone is used for hair loss treatment, why would my doctor prescribe it to help stop the extra hair growth...? yes, i know ask my doctor but clearly at midnight i cannot call my doctor and ask

    • ANSWER:
      Well spironolactone is used to prevent testosterone from acting on its receptors, that are found in certain parts of our body. Therefore, it is a testoterone antagonist.

  19. QUESTION:
    Questions about Accutane and hair loss/ other side effects?
    I was wondering how severe the effects of accutane translate into hair loss for men, I am also wondering if it does cause hair loss/ thinning, will the hair regrow back to normal after the treatment is stopped?, any other comments from previous users is appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi! I had a severe case of acne (the worst of the worst as my dermatologist told me) and I faced a lot of side effects but I had to keep being on Accutane because it was the last resort for me. I had a different level of hair loss along with a little bit of hair thinning than before I started but as soon as I finished I noticed my hair grew back again as thick as it was. The hair regrows back after stopping treatments. The only thing that hasn't been normal again is my tear quality and quantity in my eyes. I have dry eye syndrome at about the same levels like during the treatment and I'm using other remedies for it. Wish you good luck!! I know it's hard and sometimes you can't bear it but it will all get better!

    What is the best treatment for hair loss?
    I'm 29 now and in the last 6 months I have noticed that my hair has been falling constantly and at this speed i'll be bald within months...

    I have spoken with my doctor who prescribed me a medicine that, besides other side effects, causes dis functional erection and, get this, increase men's breast!

    I don't wanna loose my hair but at the same time I'm really scared of my body being deformed. How common are side effects? Can I really start getting breast?

    anyone knows a good efficient and affordable treatment?

    • ANSWER:
      Sounds like you have been prescribed Propecia. Those side effects are not very common. I have been taking it for about 7 years with none of those side effects. It stopped the hair loss and I even regrew some hair. I had the same apprehensions that you mention, and even went as far as going to Bosley for a consultation. I found that even with a hair transplant they still recommend Propecia after the transplant. One other product that you can try is called Toppik. I swear I don't work for them, but it is the most amazing product I have ever seen for thin hair. It is a powder of fine fibers that you shake onto your thin areas. It comes in several colors to match your hair color. It works. Hope some of this helped...

  24. QUESTION:
    Hair Loss - What Works For Hair Regrowth?
    I am a 37 year old male and have a very bad receding hair line. It runs in the family. My father who is now 60 is totally bald on top. I have finally decided to take some action. I have been doing some extensive research for the last six months looking for something to begin regrowth or even stop the loss of more of my hair.

    I think I have come across a hair treatment that may work. The reason for my question is to find if anyone male or female has tried this product. They state that it has been proven to provide hair regrowth to both balding men and women. I would like any positive or negative feedback regarding this product.

    The website with the information I found is www.need-hair-up-top.com

    • ANSWER:
      anyway as we know - hair loss can be caused by many different reasons! Find out the actual cause of hair loss! There are many causes of loss of hair such as stress, poor nutrition ,medications, thyroid dysfunctions, illness, fungal infections ,hormonal problems, to mention a few.

      year ago my husband suffered very much from hair loss too and he started trying everything you can imagine to stop his hair loss. the things that really worked for him was:

      1) Vitamin A - an anti-oxidant which promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp;

      2) Vitamin E stimulates circulation. Good blood circulation in the scalp is important in keeping hair follicles productive. The 'B' vitamins contribute to melanin, which gives hair its healthy color and also stimulates blood circulation;

      3) massage is also beneficial. Massage stimulates circulation. As already noted, good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Experts suggest a few minutes of daily head massage by hand. Circulation through massage may be improved by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base with massage;

      4) Try rubbing your scalp with garlic juice, Onion Juice or Ginger Juice(you can either of one out of three, Do not mix any of two or three);

      5) also he used herbal treatment - TrichoZed
      It is a good product that helps prevent hair loss and it is an FDA approved product. I think it is very important!

      It worked and still works for him!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry TrichoZed but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.trichozed.info/why.php

      It enhances hair growth by blocking DHT (Dihydrotestostrone) - a major cause of hair loss!

      good luck!

    What's the truth about FtM hair loss?
    Hi I'm ftm but i haven't started hormones yet for a number of reasons mainly that i haven't been diagnosed with GID yet and in Ireland you have to do that before having treatment. Anyway i was wondering a couple of things in relation to male pattern baldness when it come to ftms.

    Any details about it would be interesting to know but in particular I'd like to know. Basically what is the truth?

    How many ftms/ how common is hair loss common in ftms?

    what treatments have people used to help prevent/cover up/regain hair?

    also to any ftms out there when did you lose your hair? was if from when you started taking T or was it when you got to an age it was normal as in an older age like cisgendered men?

    I'm curious about this because I am terrified about loosing my hair and i mean terrified. I'm 19 and my father is bald. My brother's who are 13 and 18 have showed no signs of balding but it would be weird if the 13 year old did lol. I've already spent my life hating how i look and my hair was always one part of my body i could get right and i really don't think I'd be able to survive losing it. ;( Seriously I break down into tears thinking about it. I want to start hormone treatment so bad so is this going to be a sacrifice I'm going to have to make going bald at 19?

    • ANSWER:
      testosterone in the body will convert to dihydrotestosterone, which causes male pattern baldness if you have the gene for baldness. Chances are, if you have the baldness gene, it won't come till later in life. Most men start losing their hair in their 30's or 40's, sometimes later. It is very unlikely you will go bald as a teenager

      If you have the gene, testosterone will make you go bald. I'm not sure what the treatments are, and I'm not sure if any treatments will interfere with your hormone therapy. You should speak to your endocrinologist about that

    Rogaine and Hair Loss?
    Rogaine and hair loss?
    I *think* my hair is thinning. (its difficult to tell because I have thick, coarse hair. but it seems thinner at the roots to me.) I'm rather paranoid about this since my father is quite bald and my friends are already starting to lose their hair -- but I'm a young man in his twenties!

    In my desperation I've begun to toy with the idea of using rogaine. I was wondering if anyone could help with the following questions:

    Is it true that if I use it and then stop, that the rest of my hair will fall out? (not just the "new" hair.)
    how does the foam differ from the regular formula?
    is this stuff like goop in your hair all day?
    is there anything else I should know?

    can anyone recommend any other tricks or treatments to help.

  29. QUESTION:
    HAIR LOSS AND PROSTATE CANCER?
    LONDON: A study showing that men who start to go bald at 20 may be more likely to develop prostate cancer in later life suggests they might benefit from early screening or preventative therapy, scientists said on Tuesday.

    French researchers compared 388 men being treated for prostate cancer with 281 healthy men and found that those with the disease were twice as likely as the healthy men to have started losing their hair when they were 20.

    If the men only started going bald when they were 30 or 40, there was no difference in their risk of developing prostate cancer compared to the healthy group.

    "At present there is no hard evidence to show any benefit from screening the general population for prostate cancer. We need a way of identifying those men who are at high risk," said Philippe Giraud of Paris Descartes University, who led the study.

    "Balding at the age of 20 may be one of these easily identifiable risk factors and more work needs to be done now to confirm this," he said in a statement.

    Giraud, whose findings were published in the cancer journal Annals of Oncology, said men identified as at higher risk of prostate cancer could be selected for earlier screening, or for chemo-prevention therapy using so-called anti-androgenic drugs like Merck's Proscar, or finasteride.

    Finasteride is used to treat both prostate enlargement symptoms and baldness. It blocks the conversion of testosterone to an androgen hormone called dihydrotestosterone, which is thought to cause hair loss.

    GlaxoSmithKline has a drug in the same class called Avodart, or dutasteride, and is currently seeking approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a license for use in men at higher risk of developing prostate cancer. But an FDA panel advised last month that GSK's application should be rejected.

    Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men after lung cancer and kills an estimated 255,000 men each year.

    Androgenic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness, affects around 50 percent of men in their lifetime.

    Previous studies have established a link between baldness and androgenic hormones, and androgens also play a role in the development and growth of prostate cancer.

    Giraud and Michael Yassa of the University of Montreal in Canada, who also worked on the study, asked men to fill in a questionnaire about their history of prostate cancer, if any, and to indicate any hair loss they had at ages 20, 30 and 40 using pictures graded from stage I (no hair loss), to stage IV (receding hairline and balding from the top of the head).

    The men's doctors also provided patients' medical histories, including any diagnosis of prostate cancer, age at diagnosis, stage of the disease and treatment. The study ran for 28 months.

    "The data revealed that any balding at stages II-IV was associated with double the risk of prostate cancer later in life. This trend was lost at ages 30 and 40," said Yassa.

    "Further work should be done, both at the molecular level and with larger groups of men, to find the missing link between androgens, early balding and prostate cancer." (Reuters)

  30. QUESTION:
    Do I have enough talent?
    Hi,
    I am seriously considering cosmetology school in January 2011. I would like to specialize in people who suffer from hair loss. Men, women and children. I suffer from hair loss and it has been devastating. Not just the hair loss, but the treatment for it and the way some salons try to rip you off. I am a professional woman and am 48. I know that my age shouldn't be a factor, but I'm concerned that I don't have enough talent. It seems like most beauticians can look at you and tell what cut or style would look good on you. I don't have that talent. Is that something that I will learn?
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I think you can learn any talent as long as you try.Also it would be nicer to have someone who actually cares about others who suffer with hair loss. Go for it!

    Provillus for Women or Provillus for men?

    • ANSWER:
      The idea is that it stimulates your closing hair follicles so that they grow hair instead of closing forever. It works for some people, especially if you can get it early in your hair loss. The concentration is less for women, and women shouldn't use the formula for men. Good luck!

  32. QUESTION:
    How many treatments of laser hair removal?
    I know that women also have hair on their bodies, usually nowhere near as much as men have. I’ve been through so many tests and ultrasounds and doctors appointments and hormone level tests only to find that I do not in fact have PCOS. So that's not an answer to this question, neither is going on the pill because I have tried that and all it really does is make me so sick and queasy that I can't be happy or comfortable. Low dosage isn’t an option—my stomach’s just that sensitive.

    So I've reached a conclusion: I'm going to just go ahead and get electrolysis, something I've been thinking about for a while. I just have a couple of random areas of some hair growth on my chin and jaw line, and I try not to pluck anymore because that leaves marks. I've managed for a bit with just taking small scissors and cutting it down, but it just makes me so self conscious. I don't even want to approach people anymore or talk to them nor have anyone within a foot of my face because I don't want them to notice this about me. It's probably so minor that nobody would, but I've been dealing with this long enough and it often wears on my confidence level. I will say that my mom seems to have some hair growth around the same area sometimes, and she tells me it's probably genetic. But I don't want it! This is actually keeping me from pursuing romantic relationships because of how self-conscious it makes me.

    How many treatments on average should I expect to go through for it to cause permanent loss of this unwanted hair?

  33. QUESTION:
    Women only: I am considering a lace front wig from a hairloss place?
    I had a consultation for hair loss at the Hair Club for Men and Women. I have diffuse hairloss on the top of my head. The consultant told me that the best option for me would be a lace-front wig, which would cover the thinning area. The piece would cost around 00 to 00. I talked to my sister about it and she recommended that I go to some of the local hair salons, where they do these types of wigs for a lot cheaper.

    I would like to know if anyone has had a lace front wig done by the HC for Men and Women. If so, were you happy with your results??

    Also, how would a lace front wig/weave be just as good from a regular salon, if it is cheaper? My sister said that her friend has had several, and they use human hair and she believes the process would be the same as it would be at the hair loss treatment center.

    One of my concerns is making sure that the hair is a very close match to my own. I have a multi-ethnic/racial background and my hair is very soft with waves and the hair strands are very fine. When I shampoo and brush it back into a ponytail to let it dry naturally, the top can be very straight. It can also go into very nice corkscrew curls or waves when I air dry it, but it is also very easy to straighten...Therefore, I would need a hair texture that is very versatile and bouncy.

    • ANSWER:
      Hiya,

      I'm sorry about your hairloss, it's really distressing.

      Firstly I think the best way forward is for me to be honest with you.

      Frontals shouldn't cost more than 0 at the very most.
      It will be hard to mimick the exact texture of your hair as your natural hair isn't identical to the majority of hair donors so go for the closest match to yours, if you spend less for a quality wig then you'll be able to experiment.

      If the company your using can match the hair texture then by all means the price is worth it, but if it's just a close match then you can get frontals for less money.

      I hope that helps,

    Hair loss problem, need advice for best possible product or operation to help grow my hair back?
    Im 19 Years Old young man, I do have hypothyroidism but it is in the process of being taken care of now. I have used Gel, Wax and other hair products for several years till last year I began to see my scalp in the mirror. I started using Oil, my hair doesnt fall so much now but still i see 1 or 2 fall when i stroke my hair. Is there any product anyone has used and has proven to get results of gaining hair out there, im too young to lose hair :( . Also if there is no product to reccomend is there a certain operation thats proven to get results? I have looked into Laser Treatment and Hair Transplant but im not sure. I need advice.

    • ANSWER:
      There's only two hair loss drugs clinically tested and FDA approved : Minoxidil (Rogaine and other brands) and Finasteride (Proscar, Propecia, etc.), there are some interesting drugs too like Dutasteride or Follica but there aren't enough studies yet.
      If you're into natural stuff, the only one that might be helpful is Saw Palmeto (there are capsules for sale in natural shops) because it contains anti androgens similar to the ones found on Propecia.

      Laser treatment can improve your existing hair but wont help you regrow lost hair, hair transplant works but i would consider it the last option especially since you're still young.

      Minoxidil if you buy generic brands it's quite cheap and Proscar if you get the generic version it's reasonably cheap and will last you a long time.

      Quite frankly all the other stuff are either placebos or scams.

  37. QUESTION:
    can anyone rewrite this article? Grammar and Spelling must be correct. YOU CAN MAKE IT SHORTER?
    The effectiveness of hair loss products can differ with each individual. Men and women should use hair products made specifically for them. What works for one person may not work the same for another person. The best thing to do in selecting the product that is best suited is to speak to your doctor. Your doctor may suggest a certain diet for you to follow or recommend a change in your lifestyle in order to slow down the process of your hair loss. This would be better for you instead of medication or surgical treatment. Medication and surgical treatment can be expensive and also there is a risk associated with them. It is best to know what is causing your hair loss. Sometimes, losing your hair can be a result of an allergic reaction or any medications that you may be taking. If you know what is causing your hair loss problem, you can solve it before it gets worse. When you choose any type of treatment, you should be aware of any types of side effects associated with it. There are a lot of products on the market that claim to treat hair loss. It is important that you do some research on this by reading articles and speaking to people who have had experiences with the products. Surgery should never be considered as a first choice mainly because it is risky and very expensive. Use your time and money wisely to find the best hair loss treatment that fits your specific needs. It is a good idea to try simple things first, like specialty shampoos or supplements before trying more extreme methods such as surgery.

    • ANSWER:
      The effectiveness of hair loss products can differ with each individual and with their sex. Hair loss products are made specifically for each sex. A Doctor's advice on which product is suitable for you is recommended. Your doctor may suggest a certain diet, or recommend a change in lifestyle in order to slow down your hair loss. This is better than medication or surgical treatment which can be expensive and carries an associated risk.

  38. QUESTION:
    Has any Man successfuly grown their hair back?
    Im thinning at the crown, ive shaved it off for two years in denial, its ok i like me bald but id like my hair, so im gorwing it for the first time in two years, im 26.
    Ive been looking at all the treatments, lotions, pills, surgery etc etc etc and its exhausting, its so disheartening.
    What im wondering is, do any Men get their hair back after MPB or is it just a fable? I mean Propecia causes sexual dysfunction, so im not going near that!!!
    Any natural things that have worked?
    Do you know of anybody (a Manspecifically, not interested in female hair growth or loss) that has experienced hair loss and then have it grow back?

    • ANSWER:
      I know that no one including me, thought this to be true, but over ten years ago I was thinning, Kojak, I nearly lost it, my mind. With all the treatments on the market, I started panicking too,
      and I actually started using rogaine, for some reason it wasn't taking, except my money. Then I investigated hair transplants, went to a consultation. I was scared, because the side effect
      was intense swelling and a chance of infection. I wanted to run for the hills, I was always admired for
      my thick curly black hair and I felt almost traumatized and disgusted.
      One night I was alone in the house, and I begged of God (seriously) to not allow any
      more of my hair to fall out, and to please replace what I had. Well, in all honesty, my hair is thinner in the middle, but no one would ever know. I have enough hair to cover the area, and I thank God
      every chance I get. Most people who have their hair don't understand how this feels. Good Luck.

  39. QUESTION:
    Plastic Surgery, Sin or No?
    I'm aware this question has been asked before, but I just wanted to mention a few thoughts that have turned over in my head as I've wanted to get the tip of my nose narrowed a little to be more proportional, it's been more an irritation to me than anything that I just want to swat away like a fly because it keeps buzzing around my mind. I love the rest of me, inside and out and I am truly grateful for the life God has given me, but I can't get over my nose. Just as I have worked hard to improve my mind and inside, I want to improve my outside as well, but I don't know if Plastic Surgery will anger God.

    On one hand, it could be seen as:

    An act against God's design,
    -But what about the people born Siamese twins, deaf, with heart defects, and other bodily 'oddities' that we've corrected with surgery and technology and science? Those people were born just as we were, if God's design is absolute by birth, was it a sin to separate those twins, give the deaf hearing aids, and so on?

    Maybe because of the superficiality of plastic surgery, it is a sin because it is an act of vanity.
    -But then what about giving a girl with crooked teeth braces? Dying one's hair another color? Men getting those hair-regrow treatments? The teeth grow out that way because of our genes, our hair color and hair loss is due to our genes, due to God's design, is altering them to feel better about our self image a sin?

    Plastic surgery is also to look more attractive, so it can be seen as a lack of trust that God will provide for you, that God will take care of you, guide you to love.
    -I believe that, but I also wonder to what extent. I trust the Lord to provide, but a part of me thinks he has already provided man with what he needs, a mind, cleverness, intelligence, curiosity, the ability to cause change. If we should trust the Lord to take care of us, why do we have medicine, science, houses, insurance plans, why do we even bother going outside our house to search for dates/meet people? A part of me thinks that The Lord's greatest care for us is the ability to care for ourselves. If I, due to the Lord's generosity and providence, possess the means to earn the money to get the nose procedure, just as I've earned the money to buy pretty clothes, isn't the surgery then still in line with being grateful and acting on God given self determination?

    I don't mean to sound as if I'm justifying plastic surgery, I am sincerely conflicted, because examples and questions like those keep bouncing around in my head and I'm left very confused.

    • ANSWER:
      IMO, plastic surgery for reasons other than health (which would justify the removal of Siamese twins) is a sin, because it is placing vanity above life. Plastic surgery is a risk because you are put under anasthesia. By undergoing the surgery, you are agreeing to the fact that you might die in order to make yourself "prettier". That is vanity to the extreme.

      Braces actually serve a medical purpose. My teeth were only slightly crooked, and I didn't really want braces, but I was informed that I could have mouth/jaw problems later because of it, and braces were used to correct my teeth and bite.

      Hair dye is a temporary change, whereas plastic surgery is a permanent change.

      Just food for thought.

  40. QUESTION:
    Will Hair thinning supliments make my hair thicker even though I have normal hair?
    My hair isnt exactly thinning! but it has always been thin all my life, and it causes loads of problems like, I feel like i cant go anywhere without fully voluminising and blow drying it because normally my hair litterally sticks to my face, I look like a man with long hair because it has hardly any body or texture. Plus its naturally very very straight and i find it hard to curl it also.

    I have seen these treatments or suppliments people can take who have thinning hair. So If i take these will it make my hair thicker or will it not work because my hair is always the same and its not getting worse everyday like hair loss sufferers.. I just crave for fuller more feminine hair.
    any help?

    • ANSWER:
      No, It won't make any difference to your hair. As you mentioned your hair have been thin all your life so no vitamins will make any difference.You should be thankful that you don't have any problem with your hair.

  41. QUESTION:
    Anyone know products for women that truly help thinning hair?
    I'm 40, have 3 kids (9, 6, 3) and have noticed over the last 3-5 years my hair falling out and beginning to thin on top. This is extremely distressing to me and I'm worried to death about it. My thyroid is in check and I have no health problems that cause hair loss, so I don't know how to fix this problem. My ob said there's really nothing anyone, male or female, can do about thinning hair. It's just age, hormone, stress related. He said even Rogaine doesn't work or else we wouldn't still see bald men, much less women! Does anyone who has had this problem know any treatments that truly made a difference before I go spending tons of cash on a million products promising thicker hair. Mind you, I'm not bald or balding - I've just noticed a definite thinning on the crown of my head and have to carefully style my hair so that my scalp doesn't show.

    • ANSWER:
      Applying warm coconut oil mixed with castor oil[2:1] ,left overnight and washed with herbal shampoo will help.Also try application of onion juice ,wash with mild shampoo/plain water after half an hour.

  42. QUESTION:
    Is it fair that women are allowed to cover their bald heads while men are not?
    I work at a library where my superiors have told me that it is unprofessional to wear a hat while on the job. The reason I do this is that I have lost a lot of my hair (due to "male pattern baldness") and I look really scary. I mean, it's not like I am afraid to be seen in this condition, it's just that I look more presentable if I cover my rather large, round, bare head while working with the public. I have complained to my labor union and explained to the Library Director that I think it's unfair that a woman who has a loss of hair due to cancer treatments can cover her head (for the sake of vanity), and I'm not allowed to do the same thing (for the sake of vanity, in a sense). I think this is completely unfair. What do YOU think?

    • ANSWER:
      It rather depends what you wear, doesn't it? it's not about head-covering per se

      A wig would be ok. A headscarf might be ok. But a hat is probably not ok - men or women.
      Are you suggesting your workplace is full of cancer-treatment women who are wearing hats?

      Or are you suggesting your embarrassment at your baldy bits should be accorded the same treatment as someone undergoing life-threatening treatment?

  43. QUESTION:
    Beauty Care?
    What treatments are there for hair loss in women?
    Ask your doctor about minoxidil (the generic name for Rogaine.) This is over-the-counter and available in 2% and 5% concentrations. It's something of a nuisance to apply but it helps conserve hair and may even grow some. Propecia is a drug that helps men retain their hair but unfortunately has no use for women. Propecia is not safe for women of childbearing age and it just doesn't work for older women. This is unfortunate but, for the moment, this is the situation. Surgical procedures like hair transplants can be useful for some women as well as men to "fill in" thinned-out areas.

  44. QUESTION:
    Finalo (finasteride 1mg). I just took it for two days and it has a panicking reaction on my brain. Help?
    I am a female, 29 years old. I have thyroid but my reports are consistently very normal for last whole year. Currently I am suffering with huge hairloss. I almost lost my more than half volume of hairs. I took a hair treatment from my doctor. I have taken 2 tablets of finalo (finasteride 1 mg) in the night for my hair loss. That was advised by my doctor. But as soon as I took 1 tablet the next day from morning itself there was a reaction on the right side of my brain. There was a slight wave like thing passed from the right side of my brain to the top left side of my brain. It was not that painful it was only some sort of sensation. It happened 6 to 8 times on 1st day. I ignored it thinking its a minor thing. When I took 2nd tablet in the night (that is yesterday 16th Jan 2011) on today morning (17th Jan 2011) I felt very uneasy, tired, weak, restless and depressed. My brain area feels very heavy as if I am under a very high dose of some medicine. I was not able to concentrate on my work (where I have to continuously work on Computer) and I almost rushed to my home. There was a feeling of being insecured and longing for something. I don't know what and I know it sound crazy like a mental illness. That is the reason I feel bit scared about the reaction. There was both physical and psychological reaction. I am almost confused for whole day whenever I conversed to anyone. Especially in the morning when I was responding to some query of my collegue I did reply her rightly but I didn't know what I replied to her ? I just spoke like a machine. As soon as I moved from my office I straight headed to my Doctor and told him about it. He immediately asked me to stop the tablet and he was some sort of scared to. I came home and researched about the tablet on interent and came to know so many things about it. I looked at the tablet strip that i had and now I realised after reading it that its only for MEN. I seriously do not understand when the tablet strictly mentioned about the MEN thing why in the 1st place it was prescribed to me.? Now in the evening there is no much of this psychological problem. But, still there is heaviness in brain and my whole body feels heavy and stressed. Expecially on the back of my neck I feel some pressure. I feel my brain and body is under lot of stress. I love my work and I am passionate about it. It never happened that I felt not interested about my work. In fact even now I feel like doing it. But, when I sit to do it I am not able to concentrate and I lose my interest from it. I wanted to know how long this reaction of tablet will take to overcome. Is it highly dangerous. Do my symptoms sound an alarm to rush to some neurologist ? OR will I be normal soon. ? I want to do my work. I am an artist by profession and an artist cannot live her/his life without her/his arts. Please guide me.. I desperately need some help.

    • ANSWER:
      Heredity, hormones, stress, diet, illness, poor hair care – all are factors in hair loss.

      Stress, diet and illness are more temporary conditions and usually the hair loss is reversed when the anxiety-producing conditions dissipate, when the diet is improved, when hair care improves and when an illness is cured or gotten under control.

      Heredity and hormones are different matters, however. Heredity is an irreversible condition. You are a product of your parents, and hair loss is often inherited. Hormones are tricky, hidden things, however, and they have different effects on an individual basis.

      In a male, testosterone abides abundantly. There are also enzymes working on testosterone which product a substance called DHT. DHT is now known to circulate in the blood and cause other conditions, one of which is the shrinking of hair follicles. When hair follicles shrink enough, they are unable to produce and push a new hair through. As old hair dies, it is then not replaced.

      In women, hormonal imbalances can also cause hair loss. Pregnancy, childbirth and menopause all cause significant hormonal change and imbalances with both physical and mental effects. These changes can also cause hair loss, both temporary and permanent.

      Hair loss and re-growth products have been around for centuries. In ancient times, a variety of herbal and oil-based remedies were concocted and used by Egyptians, Aztecs, Mayans, and American Indians, all with some degree of effectiveness for some people. Modern medical research has focused on ways to re-open and stimulate “dead” hair follicles, so that hair growth can re-occur naturally, as well as keep the healthy follicles healthy. Thus, a number of products have become available, both by prescription and over-the-counter. They are advertised on radio and television and all over the Internet. One need only do a “google” search on hair loss, and there are literally thousands of sites and products for investigation.

      One ingredient in many hair loss products is minoxidil. Research studies have shown that in about 80% of the participants, products containing this ingredient are effective in slowing hair loss and, in some, causing re-growth to occur.

      Probably the most well known is Rogaine, available at any drug store, in varieties for both men and women. Most scientifically-produced products do have separate products for males and females, because, of course, hormones in each are different and of different levels.

      An additional product containing minoxidil is Provillus, and, again, studies have shown it to be effective. The difference between Provillus and other similar products is that the makes have added Azelaic Acid, an additional ingredient which appears to enhance the follicle repair in both men and women. Provillus has been the subject of many studies, just as the other products, and level of effectiveness may be higher.

      Provillus is available for both men and women, and the treatment is a combination of a topical liquid applied to the balding areas, as well as a pill or capsule to be taken in conjunction with the liquid. The critical key to effectiveness, according to its makers, is the addition of the azelaic acid, however, the correct amount of this acid is most important piece of this treatment.

      As with most hair loss products, the makers recommend patience. It may take from 3-6 months for improvement to occur, however, there is a money-back guarantee up to 180 days if one is not satisfied that it is working for him/her.

      Medical research is far from finished in its exploration of products which will stop hair loss and promote re-growth of “permanent” loss. As this research continues, existing producers will undoubtedly alter their products accordingly.

      Fortunately, a lot of money is being poured into the research, so hair loss sufferers, take heart!

  47. QUESTION:
    Stop the old wives tales please?
    So many people experiencing hair loss come here for advice from everyday folks who have no real knowledge on the matter. These folks try and give well meaning advice but alot of the times they are doing a disservice to those in need by feeding them misinformation. It's true that there are different types of hairloss with different causes but the most common form of hair loss is Male Pattern Baldness- and it is NOT caused by poor nutrition, or bad hygene, or poor circulation or overactive sex drives so PLEASE get that out of your head right now. MPB is genetic, end of story and leaves no room to point fault or blame on the inflicted individuals. As far as solutions go there are the big 3- rogaine (topical), Propecia (oral) and Nizoral (anti inflamatory shampoo). At best, the big 3 are preventative measures to prevent further hair loss but are by no means a cure for baldness. A fully bald man with a horseshoe will never recover a full head of hair from any of these products and hair transplants can't promise a full head of hair to a fully bald man because there is usually not enough donor hair to fill in the void. There is currently no cure for baldness, only inferior treatments and success with follicular cloning is elusive and is many years away from being commercialized. I just wanted to clear the air and let anyone who will listen know that these old wives tales only contribute to the negative stereotypes and stigmatization that us bald men feel. It's dammaging and really isn't helping.

  48. QUESTION:
    Parents won't let me in treatment, now I'm half bald w/ STDs?
    I'm 15. I went to the doctor yesterday cuz he thinks I have an STI, I've slept with over 3 dozen guys and almost all of them are black. I don't like white men.

    I pull my hair out. I stopped for a few months but I started again & it's a lot worse now. My whole top of head is bald, I try parting my hair differently but it still shows through. My mother thought it was hair loss from a fungal infection & she asked the dr to look at it. He asked if I pulled my hair, half the time he was with me was how I should be seeing a counselor. I can't even go 20 minutes without pulling a bunch of hairs out.

    A couple years ago I was on medication & therapy for depression, but my parents didn't want me in treatment so they said if I'm on meds then I'm not allowed to go anywhere but school w/ out them. My mom's sister and nephew were diagnosed w/ bipolar, so maybe she doesn't want me like them? They thought medication would mess me up.

    During the summer for like 4 months I was so hyper and happy. I was really impulsive, too. That's when I started sleeping around. I even walked 3 miles along the highway during rush hour, I now realize that was pretty stupid. Idk why I feel depressed again.

    With my parents just hating me being in treatment, what am I supposed to do??

    • ANSWER:
      Tell all this to the school nurse and counselor. They can make your parents get you the help you need. It looks like you are bipolar and their thoughts that meds would mess you up don't make them right. They aren't doctors. Also, it looks as tho they'd rather see you suffer than admit they are not handling it properly.

      Fight for yourself for a change.

  49. QUESTION:
    My friend's wife has left him...because he's gone bald?
    My friend and his wife had been married for three years. They looked like a perfect match for each other. Everyone thought their marriage was going to last. However, a few months after got hitched my friend started losing his hair (he was 25 at the time).

    Over the next two years he went from having a full head of thick hair to having the hairline of Larry David (no hair on top).

    He tried everything to keep his hair, for example, topical treatments such as Rogaine, but none of them worked. As he lost more hair he said his marriage seemed to get worse. His wife was no longer looking at him in the same way. Anyway, last week it finally happened: she left him. When he asked why she gave the whole 'no longer attracted to you' routine.

    Of course, when he asked her to elaborate it immediately became clear: the hair loss had completely turned her off. She said he was no longer the man she married because he'd lost his looks. After hearing that my friend was absolutely distraught and for the past few days I've been trying to console him.

    I hear about this kind of marriage break-up all the time e.g. the wife putting on a lot of weight, but I never thought it would happen to them. What should I say to my friend? He's lost his wife because of hair loss.

    • ANSWER:
      A shame some hair is what killed that marriage, but it rather indicates she was never very into him that much in the first place...on the upside, many women dig bald men and lots of guys who have plenty of hair shave their heads nowadays...your friend should have no trouble finding a partner that'll be more suitable than "hair chick"...

  50. QUESTION:
    Help with speech!!????????
    Can you please edit my speech or help me put in more personal opinions and interesting facts?? THANK YOU! To make it more fun to listen to.

    Speech:

    Napoleon Bonaparte, Babe Ruth, Hitler, Idi Amin, Al Capone & King Henry VIII. I wonder how many of you could tell me what these people had in common. It might surprise you that they all had, at some stage, syphilis. So, today, I will be discussing the perimeters of a specific STD, Syphilis. The disease was discovered in 1905 by Fritz Schauddin & Erich Hoffman.

    Syphilis is a bacterial disease that is highly infectious and can be passed on through blood transferring, child in womb can be exposed or direct contact with the syphilis sore. Syphilis sores occur mainly on the external genitals, but some cases have been reported otherwise.

    Syphilis progresses in three distinct stages and one not so common anymore. Primary phase; this is the beginning of the disease. It starts with a sore, known as a shanker; these appear mainly on the genitals. But any part of the body is at risk. Any contact with the sore can transmit the disease. The sore will grow bigger in 3-4 days, after 1 week it will disappear, but the disease will not.

    The secondary phase includes many more symptoms. It may build up 4-10 weeks after the shanker appears. The common symptoms are: fevers, joint pains, muscle aches, sore throats, flu-like symptoms, rashes, headaches, decreased appetites, patchy hair loss and swollen lymph nodes. This phase can go away without treatment, but the third phase will commence. The third phase is known as the ‘latent phase’. In the early stages of this phase, first one to two years, the disease has some of the same symptoms as the second stage. More than 2 years after the beginning of this phase there may be no symptoms and sores are normally no longer infectious. But pregnant woman can still pass them on to baby foetus through the womb.

    The one, not so common, phase now is the ‘tertiary phase’. This isn’t seen much anymore because of the aid of penicillin. But for the unlucky people who contract this phase they are normally faced with heart, skin, bone and brain problems.
    Many of these symptoms I have listed sound like symptoms to other diseases, that is why syphilis can be referred to as ‘The Great Pretender’, because it mimics other diseases.

    Another form of syphilis that isn’t mentioned a lot is ‘congenital syphilis’. This is the occurrence after a foetus has been infected in a womb. The form of syphilis can cause many abnormalities in the child such abnormalities as, teeth, bone problems, liver/spleen/kidney enlargement, brain infection, skin rashes and more.

    Syphilis can be exposed to anyone who has sex, but the highest occurrence is found in women aged 20-24, and men aged 35-39. Newborns with congenital syphilis increased from 2005 to 2006, with 339 new reported cases in 2005 compared to 349 cases reported in 2006.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not researching for you but here are some corrections so the piece will flow more smoothly. Also, there are some notes on where you need more research to complete the piece. Hope this helps -

      TITLE: The Great Pretender

      Napoleon Bonaparte, Babe Ruth, Hitler, Idi Amin, Al Capone & King Henry VIII. Can you tell me what these people had in common? Syphilis. Today, I will be discussing the STD, Syphilis. All of you have heard of it but do you really know anything about it?

      The disease was discovered in 1905 by Fritz Schauddin & Erich Hoffman. (How? Why? What kind of research was being performed that led to this discovery?) Syphilis is a bacterial disease that is highly infectious and can be passed through blood. A child in the womb can be exposed or if direct contact with a syphilis sore is made, the disease can be contracted. Syphilis sores occur mainly on the external genitals, but some cases have been reported on other areas of the body. (WHERE ON THE BODY? BE SPECIFIC.)

      Syphilis progresses in three distinct stages. The Primary phase is the beginning of the disease. It starts with a sore, known as a shanker; these appear mainly on the genitals. But any part of the body is at risk. Any contact with the sore can transmit the disease. The sore will grow bigger in 3-4 days and after 1 week it will disappear, but this does not mean that the disease is gone.

      The secondary phase develops 4 to 10 weeks after the shanker appears. This is when the majority of symptoms begin to appear such as fever, joint pain, muscle aches, sore throat, rash, headache, decreased appetite, patchy hair loss and swollen lymph nodes. People often mistake this for the flu because these are all flu symptoms. This phase can go away without treatment, but then the third phase will commence.

      The third phase is known as the ‘latent phase’. In the first one to two years of this phase, the disease has some of the same symptoms as the second stage. More than 2 years after the beginning of this phase there may be no symptoms and sores are normally no longer infectious. But pregnant woman can still pass the disease to their fetus through the womb. (This paragraph needs more detail and makes little sense. Are people outwardly ill during this phase? Are they contagious? If so, how? Through sexual contact? Blood contact? Contact of mucous membranes? This area needs more research).

      There is one more rather uncommon phase known as the Tertiary Phase. This phase is rarely seen in modern times because of the aid of penicillin. But the unlucky people who develop this phase are faced with heart, skin, bone and brain problems. (Like what? Cancers? Heart disease? Does their skin fall off? Does their brain die?? What happens to them?)
      Many of these symptoms I have listed sound like symptoms to other diseases, that is why syphilis has been referred to as ‘The Great Pretender’, because it mimics other diseases.

      Another form of syphilis that isn’t mentioned often is ‘congenital syphilis’. This is Syphilis that occurs when a fetus has been infected in the womb. This form of syphilis can cause many birth abnormalities in the child such as, teeth, bone problems, liver/spleen/kidney enlargement, brain infection and skin rashes.

      Syphilis is an equal opportunity disease! Anyone who has sex can contract it. Therefore the only way to completely avoid it is through avoiding sexual contact. The highest occurrence is found in women aged 20-24, and men aged 35-39. Newborns with congenital syphilis increased from 2005 to 2006, with 339 new reported cases in 2005 compared to 349 cases reported in 2006. (Are there any reasons why doctors think this is happening? Do YOU have any idea’s on this?)

      **You need a closing statement. Your speech needs to have a point – did you simply want your peers to know about the disease? Do you want them to avoid it? Are you concerned that the number of cases in infants has increased? Do you think more research needs to be done on it? There needs to be a logical end to this – a statement that closes the discussion**


Hair Loss Treatments Product

In order to understand a DHT blocker, you must first familiarize yourself with this substance that greatly contributes to facial and body hair growth. DHT is associated with the hormone testosterone, which is found in the prostate gland, adrenal glands, and hair follicles. Overall, DHT is a rather important substance that affects male baldness caused by changes in hormone levels. In some of the most popular methods of treating hair loss, DHT often serves as a vital focus.

DHT is created when an enzyme called 5 alpha-reductase turns testosterone into DHT, which is often the main cause of thinning hair and receding hairlines in men. Some of the products of today contain the proper blend of herbs and minerals, which works with 5 alpha-reductase to create DHT blockers. When supplements and other products offer the proper ingredients in just the right amount, the damaging effects of DHT are blocked. Men between the ages of 18 and 40 are also known to experience a regrowth of lost hair as a result.

Hair Loss Treatments Involving DHT

While a variety of hair loss remedies involve anti-inflammatory motives that prevent redness and itching (known to worsen hair loss) or contain growth stimulants, there are plenty of treatment options that involve DHT. Some methods rely on antiandrogens, which affects the combination (or binding) of DHT with androgen receptors. Another approach includes DHT inhibitors, which are designed to create an acceptable balance between shedding hair and regrowth by controlling the production of DHT. Through limiting DHT levels, the hair loss attributed to this substance is lessened.

      FALLING HAIR -

      Does your hair fall a lot? Don't worry, you're not alone. Millions of people from all around the world suffer from dry, brittle and weak hair. Some of the possible reasons for falling hair are:

      Tension
      Too much work
      Illness
      Poor diet
      Over-exposure to the sun
      Perming
      Amateur bleaching
      Too frequent and inexpert use of tints, rinses or other colourants

      Here is what you can do to prevent hair fall

      Shampoo regularly. Remember, a CLEAN scalp is a HEALTHY SCALP.

      Brahmi amla oil also promotes hair growth.

      A high protein diet with plenty of fruits, green vegetables and dairy products is a must.

      Drink 10-12 glass of water everyday.

      Use a very mild shampoo and condition your hair at least twice a week. When you do, make sure you rinse out the conditioner thoroughly, otherwise residue build-up will cause your hair to look limp and dull.

      Know your vitamins! IRON is important for healthy hair and brittle, limp hair indicates an iron deficiency. Spinach has a good iron content, so gulp it down!

      ZINC helps prevent hair loss and greying. Eat adequate zinc rich foods. Overweight people tend to have zinc deficiency, which is inversely related to the body mass index. Thus if you are overweight and if your hair falls too much, you may want to increase your intake of zinc containing foods. Recipes containing stone ground, wholegrain flour are rich in zinc.

      A shortfall in VITAMIN B may cause dandruff, falling hair, loss of colour and could encourage grey hair. So B group Vitamins are essential for gloss, colour and thickness.

      VITAMIN C ensures the health of capillaries supplying blood to hair follicles. Make sure your diet includes plenty of fresh fruits and veggies.

      VITAMIN E encourages hair growth. Switch from refined flours to wholemeal and wheatgerm, eggs, vegetable oil.

      COPPER stops hair from falling. Studies show that the copper content in the blood serum of people with falling hair is less than normal. Different types of alopecia (falling hair) are seen to have a deficiency of this important trace element. Include small quantities of nuts, especially cashews and peanuts, seeds, whole milk and beans in your diet as these contain minute but important amounts of copper.

      Homemade remedies for preventing hair fall:

      Apply almond oil on scalp and massage.
      Grind fenugreek seeds in water and apply on your scalp. Wash off after 40 minutes. Do this every morning for a month ¡V if it suits you! Remember, different treatments suit different types of hair.
      Massage warm castor oil + almond oil into your scalp gently. Wrap a hot towel around your scalp so it gets absorbed into the hair. Do this twice a week for healthy, shiny hair.
      Add 2-3 drops of honey to a glass of water and use this as the last rinse after shampooing.

      Quick Hair Care Conditioner

      Mix 1 egg, 2 tbs castor oil, 1 tsp vinegar and 1 tsp glycerine. Beat until frothy and massage lightly into your scalp. Wrap your head in a hot towel, steam, then wash off. This conditioner makes hair thicker, shiny, soft and manageable.

      Honey Conditioner

      Beat 1-2 eggs (depending on the length of the hair), 1 tsp honey and 2 tsp olive oil. Massage gently into the scalp. Steam, and shampoo after an hour.

      Alcohol Conditioner

      Beat 1-2 eggs with 2 tsp brandy. Massage into your scalp. Leave for 10-15 mins. Rinse well. The egg nourishes your hair and brandy stimulates hair growth.

      Your hair is a vital beauty asset, requiring constant loving care. And with a little nurturing, lush, glossy hair will be yours

      ESSENTIALS FOR FALLING HAIR -

      Does your hair fall often Arm yourself with these tools to combat hair fall.

      Wide-toothed comb

      Get yourself a wide-toothed comb. This is probably one of the most important yet underutilized of all hair tools. A wide-toothed comb helps you distribute conditioner evenly all over your hair while shampooing and conditioning. In addition, it also helps get rid of knots smoothly.

      The best time to get rid of knots is during conditioning. Apply conditioner and run a wide toothed comb gently through your hair.

      While untangling dry hair, do so in sections. Take one section at a time, and first, untangle the ends of your hair. Do so slowly, and don?t pull unless you want your hair to fall out in clumps or break.

      Don?t wait for the last minute before detangling your hair. Every night, while sitting in front of the television, run a wide toothed comb gently through your hair, until you have untangled it completely. Do this every night, and you will notice that your hair remains free from tangles.

      Leave-in conditioner
      Dry hair tends to tangle easily, and, needless to say, causes it to break. Make sure your hair is never devoid of moisture by always keeping a bottle of leave-in conditioner handy. The next time you feel your hair is dry and rough to the touch, simply rub a dollop of leave-in conditioner between your palms, and apply it to your hair. Comb through with your wide toothed comb. Your hair will be instantly rejuvenated and moisturized. Gradually, the texture will also improve. This is a must if you blow dry your hair regularly, or if it is chemically treated. Such hair constantly craves moisture, so get yourself a bottle of leave-in conditioner.

      Oil
      Olive, almond and coconut oils are all excellent for the hair. While you could apply oil as an alternative to leave-in conditioner, oil tends to make your hair sticky, and you cannot style your hair well after applying oil. Your only alternative would then be to tie up your hair. For better results with oil, apply just a few drops immediately after washing your hair, when your hair is still dripping wet. Oil doesn?t penetrate the strands as easily as leave-in conditioner does though. Nothing beats a hot oil massage followed by a steam treatment, as the steam helps the oil penetrate the hair strands, strengthening them and curtailing hair fall.

      Egg
      Egg is great for the hair ? there are no two ways about it! True, it causes a tremendous stink in the bathroom, and your hair may let off an ?eggy? smell, but the results are instantaneous and worth it! Egg strengthens your hair almost immediately, and the egg yolk leaves your hair shining. Whip an egg with two tablespoons of olive oil and apply it to your hair. Wash off after half an hour. Make sure you wash off with cold water though, or the egg will start cooking in your hair, and would be harder to take off! Use a scented shampoo to counter the smell of egg in your hair, and follow up with a leave-in conditioner. Do this for a month, and you will be amazed by the change in your hair texture and the reduction in hair fall.

      What can I eat to prevent premature greying?

      Eating seafood is possibly one of the best things you can eat to promote all-over hair health. It is rich in zinc, iodine and protein, which are excellent for the hair. So if you enjoy seafood, make it a point to have fish several times a week. Remember that eating canned fish will not give you the same benefits as eating freshly cooked fish. If you don?t eat fish, consider fish-oil supplements.

      Iron is good for hair and is found in dark green vegetables, meat and some pulses. If you are unsure about whether you are getting enough iron, include an iron supplement every once in a while in your diet. Remember that too many iron supplements can be bad for you. Women lose iron while menstruating, so perhaps during or after your cycle you can have iron-fortified supplements for a few days.

      Eating foods rich in Vitamins B and C will ensure that your hair stays strong, does not break easily, and does not grey early. Pork, vegetables, whole grains, wheat germ, soymilk are all rich sources of Vitamin B, while citrus fruits are excellent sources of Vitamin C. Eating adequate Vitamin C helps increase absorption of iron. Try and have a glass of orange juice daily.

      Your hair will never be healthy if you do not drink enough water. Drink at least eight to ten glasses a day.

      What oil can I apply to my hair?

      Rosemary oil is believed to gradually darken grey hair over a period of time. Soak rosemary leaves along with a few basil (tulsi) leaves, in jojoba oil, for a period of four weeks. Massage your scalp and hair with this oil (after warming it up).

      Most oils are not easily absorbed by the hair, which is why you need to leave oil on for at least forty-five minutes. It helps greatly if you steam your hair after applying oil.

      Boil dried amla pieces in coconut oil until the pieces turn black and the oil darkens. Apply this oil to the hair. It strengthens hair and prevents greying.

      Boil tealeaves in water and rinse your hair with this liquid 20-30 times. Then, leave on for 15-20 minutes before the final rinse.

      What else can I do to promote hair health and delay greying?

      Washing your hair with very hot water or using hair-dryers excessively weaken roots, and may lead to premature greying. When using a hair-dryer, take care not to point it to your scalp. Similarly, try and wash your hair with cool or lukewarm water.

      Will Yoga help?

      Inverted yoga poses bring a rush of blood to the scalp. This stimulates circulation and enhances hair health. Do the following poses regularly:

      Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog)

      Sarvangasana

      Chakrasana

      Other easy ways to stimulate circulation are:

      When you wash your hair, keep switching from hot water to cold water.

      Comb your hair regularly. A hundred strokes every night should do the trick. If your hair is curly, use a wide toothed comb

  5. QUESTION:
    What are good anti hair loss treatment products for african hair?
    I have relaxed hair that used to be long, healthy and strong. Since I've recovered from thyroid disease, my hair's been thinning and falling, not too drastically but it's growing super slowly. I eat healthy, drink lots of water and stopped wearing extensions. What are good hair treatment for hair loss? I heard René Furterer bulbs were good but do you have good suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Most hair loss treatments can be brought over the counter. Some of them can be very expensive. But you can save a lot of money by considering natural hair loss treatments over these costly remedies. While there is no sure fire way of getting all your hair back, there are ways of stopping the balding process and regaining some of your hair naturally. Consider these natural hair loss treatments before buying those expensive medications.

      Onion bulbs - With onion bulbs, there is no need to hunt down exotic ingredients for healthier hair and scalp. This can be found in most kitchens and can help with hair loss problems. When using onions for hair loss treatments, simply rub the juice directly to the hair and let sit for up to 1 hour. This will help in boosting hair growth as well as making hair strands stronger.

      Cayenne Pepper - Applying cayenne pepper to the scalp stimulates hair follicles and blood circulation. You can make cayenne pepper paste by mixing it with some water. Apply to your hair directly and let sit for 30 minutes. This will help in hair re-growth.

      Soy - Soy is a good source of isoflavone which are said to have anti-oxidant properties similar to Vitamin E. The use of soy for hair treatments averts hair loss.

      Jojoba Oil - Jojoba oil cleanses the scalp and helps stop the production of sebum. Too much sebum in the scalp leads to slow hair growth. It also contains anti-oxidants which prevents hair damage, rejuvenates and makes the scalp healthy. This is one of the most commonly used hair loss treatment ingredient.

      Pumpkin Seed - Lower DHT levels in the body naturally with pumpkin seed. These contain natural oils that stop hair thinning. They work by producing delta-7-sterine which inhibits DHT levels.

      Ginko Bilboa - Ginko Bilboa is an ancient Chinese remedy that spans generations. It is primarily used to regulate blood circulation. It is especially beneficial to the scalp as increased blood flow will help in hair re-growth and help maintain a healthy head of hair.

  6. QUESTION:
    Anyone have hair loss treatments other than salon products/hair transplants? Any reliable holistic treatments?
    Any suggestions that have worked for you for hair loss and itchy scalp? Have tried different shampoo and salon scalp treatments. Have seen a doctor but no answers.

    • ANSWER:
      There are several treatment options that may help to stimulate and encourage hair growth. If hair loss occurs as a result of an underlying condition or disease, then the condition needs to be treated first. The various types of hair loss are treated with specific medication which includes antibiotics, corticosteroids, or steroid injections. For more serious episodes of hair loss, surgical procedures such as hair transplants, scalp reduction or skin grafts may be performed to replace hair loss.

      Natural and holistic therapy offers a gentler alternative for people experiencing hair loss than the harsh effects of conventional medication. Treatments such as herbal and homeopathic remedies stimulate and encourage hair growth as well as support blood circulation, hormonal balance and thyroid functioning.

      Herbal remedies along with good nutritional diet (supplements in case of severe deficiency or if directed by your doctor) help hair grow stronger and more plentifully by nourishing it at the roots. They achieve this by stimulating blood flow and supplying nutrients to the hair follicles and hence promoting healthy hair growth and slowing down excessive hair loss. Although the process begins within a few days, as the hair grow slowly, the results are visible only after a few months.

      Herbs commonly used include Ginkgo biloba, Rosmarinus officinale and Xanthoxylum clavaherculis help to promote strong, abundant hair. Other powerful herbs such as Equisetum arvense, Avena sativa and Echinacea are effective combating hair loss and nourishing hair follicles.

      Together, these herbs are highly capable of:

      - Promoting healthy hair growth
      - Encouraging healthy blood supply and circulation to the hair follicle and scalp
      - Discouraging common age-related hair loss and hair thinning
      - Supporting the thyroid and all mechanisms involved in hormonal balance in the body
      - Supporting the body’s ability to obtain nutrients from food, thus promoting healthy, strong hair

  8. QUESTION:
    I'm going bald! What is the best hair regrowth/hair loss product/treatment? For men?
    I have a receding hairline and I don't know what to do! My hair's falling out..

    • ANSWER:
      You need to use a hair treatment like provillus. I've been on it for 5 weeks and i must say there is a major improvement in my part. It has all the vitamins your hair needs and much more.I've used it and I had very good results.Provillus contains the only FDA-approved topical ingredient clinically proven to re grow hair.

      I am sure this product will be worth your time for a second look since your money would be going into the right hands. In a survey conducted, 18 out of 20 people experienced a drastic change after using this product. None experienced any side effects.

      Provillus offers the best possible and perennial solution for this problem for both men and women. One of the best parts of the provillus treatment is that it uses natural ingredients. This has accounted for its rising popularity. Thus it leaves the other products behind in this context, since most of the products contain harmful chemicals.

      Provillus basically functions by removing the main cause of hair loss i.e. DHT. DHT damages the hair follicles and is responsible for the thinning of hair. It also restricts the re-growth of new hair. Provillus prevents its formation and it also promotes the growth of the new hair.

      I use it once a day every evening. The area which i was balding in was the top middle portion of my head, not sure why cause no one in my family is loosing hair accept me so its not genetic. I have regrowth in that area, few strands are coming up and my wife says its so much better than it was before.

      Well you might be aware that it is available for both men and women. The saw palmetto extract is basically present in the men's version whereas a combination of acids is present in the female version. Thus in addition to the solution of problem of hair loss it also nourishes hair.

      Till now Provillus has been getting positive feedbacks so you needn't worry and instead be assured. It offers the its users complete satisfaction.

  10. QUESTION:
    Can I use Hair Loss treatments on my hair?
    Hi :)
    I am 17 years old.
    I do not have any form of hair loss, as in- I'm not balding or anything like how you see in the picture examples in hair loss commercials.
    However, my hair did break off though at the top, due to mistreating my hair, getting relaxers and not keeping up with them, constant flat ironing, etc.
    So I was wondering, would it be safe to use hair loss treatments (like the stuff that older men/women use on their hair when they're getting hair loss due to aging)
    could that work on just helping speed up the growth in my hair? I hope this makes sense,

    i have a friend who has hair that goes about an inch passed her belly button, and after she got out of the shower i saw her squirt some hair loss product for men in her hair, and her hair looks perfectly healthy, smooth, and extremely long and thick.
    so i was wondering if this could be something i could try as well?
    i'm hoping using hair loss product on my hair at my age doesn't cause more damage or hair loss,
    but i was wondering is it a possibility to use on hair not for hair loss problems, but simply for hair growth? thank you for your time.

    • ANSWER:
      Heredity, hormones, stress, diet, illness, poor hair care – all are factors in hair loss.

      Stress, diet and illness are more temporary conditions and usually the hair loss is reversed when the anxiety-producing conditions dissipate, when the diet is improved, when hair care improves and when an illness is cured or gotten under control.

      Heredity and hormones are different matters, however. Heredity is an irreversible condition. You are a product of your parents, and hair loss is often inherited. Hormones are tricky, hidden things, however, and they have different effects on an individual basis.

      In a male, testosterone abides abundantly. There are also enzymes working on testosterone which product a substance called DHT. DHT is now known to circulate in the blood and cause other conditions, one of which is the shrinking of hair follicles. When hair follicles shrink enough, they are unable to produce and push a new hair through. As old hair dies, it is then not replaced.

      In women, hormonal imbalances can also cause hair loss. Pregnancy, childbirth and menopause all cause significant hormonal change and imbalances with both physical and mental effects. These changes can also cause hair loss, both temporary and permanent.

      Hair loss and re-growth products have been around for centuries. In ancient times, a variety of herbal and oil-based remedies were concocted and used by Egyptians, Aztecs, Mayans, and American Indians, all with some degree of effectiveness for some people. Modern medical research has focused on ways to re-open and stimulate “dead” hair follicles, so that hair growth can re-occur naturally, as well as keep the healthy follicles healthy. Thus, a number of products have become available, both by prescription and over-the-counter. They are advertised on radio and television and all over the Internet. One need only do a “google” search on hair loss, and there are literally thousands of sites and products for investigation.

      One ingredient in many hair loss products is minoxidil. Research studies have shown that in about 80% of the participants, products containing this ingredient are effective in slowing hair loss and, in some, causing re-growth to occur.

      Probably the most well known is Rogaine, available at any drug store, in varieties for both men and women. Most scientifically-produced products do have separate products for males and females, because, of course, hormones in each are different and of different levels.

      An additional product containing minoxidil is Provillus, and, again, studies have shown it to be effective. The difference between Provillus and other similar products is that the makes have added Azelaic Acid, an additional ingredient which appears to enhance the follicle repair in both men and women. Provillus has been the subject of many studies, just as the other products, and level of effectiveness may be higher.

      Provillus is available for both men and women, and the treatment is a combination of a topical liquid applied to the balding areas, as well as a pill or capsule to be taken in conjunction with the liquid. The critical key to effectiveness, according to its makers, is the addition of the azelaic acid, however, the correct amount of this acid is most important piece of this treatment.

      As with most hair loss products, the makers recommend patience. It may take from 3-6 months for improvement to occur, however, there is a money-back guarantee up to 180 days if one is not satisfied that it is working for him/her.

      Medical research is far from finished in its exploration of products which will stop hair loss and promote re-growth of “permanent” loss. As this research continues, existing producers will undoubtedly alter their products accordingly.

      Fortunately, a lot of money is being poured into the research, so hair loss sufferers, take heart!

  12. QUESTION:
    What are the dangers of Rogaine and other hair loss treatments?
    I want to use Rogaine or another hair regrowth product, but i am hesitant to do so because i personally think that there must be major long term side effects. Help me!

    • ANSWER:
      Excellent Question. In short, Rogaine (Minoxidil) is topical and so it limits its potential risks. The mechanism of actions is that Minoxidil may either activate the hair follicle directly or stimulate the microcirculation surrounding the follicle, increasing cutaneous blood flow via its vasodilating effects. (Minoxidil also may alter the metabolism of androgens in the scalp.) However, when Minoxidil is taken systemically (in pill form), it has hypotensive effects (lowers blood pressure). Therefore, it would be dangerous if too much Rogaine is absorbed through the head into the bloodstream. Luckily, topical minoxidil is poorly absorbed through the skin. The systemic absorption of topical minoxidil averages 2% (range 0.3—4.5%). Systemic adverse reactions are thus unlikely from topical administration. Placebo-controlled trials with topical minoxidil only showed an increase in dermatological effects from the active drug. Hence, the risk of hypotensive side effects are little to none. Using Rogaine on areas with sunburn or open wounds would obviously increase risk of systemic side-effects. I'm no doctor, but overall from my readings, I'd say Rogaine is pretty safe to use. The only real downside with this drug is that it must be applied 2x a day, and that regrowth will regress if you stop using it (this happens with Propecia too). It also presumably takes a few months for visible regrowth.

      The only other drug that is FDA approved for allogenic alopecia is Propecia (Finasteride). Unlike Rogaine, this is taken as a pill, which increases its chance for side-effects. This is because it not only can affect your hair, but also other places in your body via your bloodstream. Most frequently reported adverse reactions to finasteride were related to sexual function. Propecia also is teratogenesis and is absolutely contraindicated during pregnancy. Interestingly, finasteride was first used for treatment of BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia). So taking this drug for alopecia may also have the beneficial side effect of a reduced risk of BPH. However, in a 2003 NEJM article (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=12824459&query_hl=3&itool=pubmed_docsum), they found that use of Finasteride increased the risk of high-grade prostate cancer. This would obviously need more research to determine whether using Finasteride as a BPH preventative for the 25% decreased in prostate cancer risk (leading to decreased prostate-caused urinary problems) would be worth the increased risk of high-grade prostate cancer. Also, treatment for BPH uses doses of up to 5mg/day in contrast to the 1mg/day for alopecia, so the extent to which this study applies to the dose you would be taking is likely unknown.

      Other than that, there are other non-FDA approved approaches for hair loss such as Nizoral Shampoo (1-2% Ketoconazole) among others. But there isn't anywhere as much documentation for those.

      Hopefully this helps a bit...

    • ANSWER:
      There's only two drugs clinically tested and FDA approved : Minoxidil (Rogaine and other brands) and Propecia (Proscar, Finasteride, etc.), there are some interesting drugs too like Dutasteride or Follica but there aren't enough studies yet.

      If you're into natural stuff, the only ones that might be helpful are Saw Palmeto (there are capsules for sale in natural shops) because it contains anti androgens similar to the ones found on Propecia, or the herb Shen Min.

      Quite frankly all the other stuff are either placebos or scams.

  15. QUESTION:
    Using More Than One Hair Loss Product?
    I ask way too many questions about bad hair...

    I'm using (Alpecin Caffeine shampoo, and Boots Expert Hair Loss Treatment Spray - pair 1),
    but I also have at home two (Schwarzkopf Activ F hair retention - pair 2) products.
    All are for strengthening hair, whilst helping it grow quicker & stopping it breaking.

    Each pair is required once daily and I wash my hair twice a day, but I was wondering, is it safe to use two different kinds of hair loss shampoos / tonics over the same time period?
    Sometimes even two different kinds at the same time i.e using two leave in spray products that are different types & brands?

    Thanks.
    ALSO... if a proper hair loss shampoo is recommended for daily use, will it matter if it used twice a day?

  17. QUESTION:
    What are some really good hair products for hair loss ?
    Hair treatment products , creams , etc. Anything that is really good , doesn't matter if it's pricey or not. Curly friendly stuff preferably. Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      year ago I suffered very much from dandruff and hair loss too and I started trying everything you can imagine to stop my hair loss.
      the things that really worked for me was:

      1) Vitamin A - an anti-oxidant which promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp;

      2) Vitamin E stimulates circulation. Good blood circulation in the scalp is important in keeping hair follicles productive. The 'B' vitamins contribute to melanin, which gives hair its healthy color and also stimulates blood circulation;

      3) massage is also beneficial. Massage stimulates circulation. As already noted, good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Experts suggest a few minutes of daily head massage by hand. Circulation through massage may be improved by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base with massage;

      4) Try rubbing your scalp with garlic juice, Onion Juice or Ginger Juice(you can either of one out of three, Do not mix any of two or three);

      5) also I used herbal treatment - Provillus (do not use Rogaine - it will not work!)
      It is a good products that helps prevent hair loss and contains Biotin and the clinically tested ingredients approved by the FDA to help re-grow your hair.! I think it is very important!

      It worked and still works for me!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry Provillus but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.provillus.com/?aid=221781

      It enhances hair growth by blocking DHT (Dihydrotestostrone) - a major cause of hair loss!

      Also Informative video about Provillus - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ydvCHhbRkk

      good luck!

  18. QUESTION:
    Is There a Product that can Stop Hair Loss from Chemo?
    Long story short, my mom has been diagnosed with breast cancer and will need 4 treatments of chemo therapy. Someone had mentioned a product that can prevent hair loss from the chemo treatments, however I do not know what the name of it is. Any ideas or suggestions?? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Lots of things have been tried, because we all know that no one wants to lose their hair from chemo. Nothing has been proven or approved yet, but it is being worked on. Some ladies have tried using a 'cold cap' or ice on their head at the time of infusion to try to temporarily shrink the follicles so they won't release the hair, but this is not very effective at all.
      Remember that the point behind the chemo is that it kills all fast-growing cells, which include cancer cells and hair follicle cells. Her hair WILL grow back. Just get a nice wig to use for a few months.

    i only want shampoo and conditioer or a spray with it i dont mind.

    has anyone used this product and does it really work because reallly need one that works.
    or what other products are out there for hair loss and to thicken hair which trully work.
    i would like shampoo and conditioners please

    thank you :)

    • ANSWER:
      Heredity, hormones, stress, diet, illness, poor hair care – all are factors in hair loss.

      Stress, diet and illness are more temporary conditions and usually the hair loss is reversed when the anxiety-producing conditions dissipate, when the diet is improved, when hair care improves and when an illness is cured or gotten under control.

      Heredity and hormones are different matters, however. Heredity is an irreversible condition. You are a product of your parents, and hair loss is often inherited. Hormones are tricky, hidden things, however, and they have different effects on an individual basis.

      In a male, testosterone abides abundantly. There are also enzymes working on testosterone which product a substance called DHT. DHT is now known to circulate in the blood and cause other conditions, one of which is the shrinking of hair follicles. When hair follicles shrink enough, they are unable to produce and push a new hair through. As old hair dies, it is then not replaced.

      In women, hormonal imbalances can also cause hair loss. Pregnancy, childbirth and menopause all cause significant hormonal change and imbalances with both physical and mental effects. These changes can also cause hair loss, both temporary and permanent.

      Hair loss and re-growth products have been around for centuries. In ancient times, a variety of herbal and oil-based remedies were concocted and used by Egyptians, Aztecs, Mayans, and American Indians, all with some degree of effectiveness for some people. Modern medical research has focused on ways to re-open and stimulate “dead” hair follicles, so that hair growth can re-occur naturally, as well as keep the healthy follicles healthy. Thus, a number of products have become available, both by prescription and over-the-counter. They are advertised on radio and television and all over the Internet. One need only do a “google” search on hair loss, and there are literally thousands of sites and products for investigation.

      One ingredient in many hair loss products is minoxidil. Research studies have shown that in about 80% of the participants, products containing this ingredient are effective in slowing hair loss and, in some, causing re-growth to occur.

      Probably the most well known is Rogaine, available at any drug store, in varieties for both men and women. Most scientifically-produced products do have separate products for males and females, because, of course, hormones in each are different and of different levels.

      An additional product containing minoxidil is Provillus, and, again, studies have shown it to be effective. The difference between Provillus and other similar products is that the makes have added Azelaic Acid, an additional ingredient which appears to enhance the follicle repair in both men and women. Provillus has been the subject of many studies, just as the other products, and level of effectiveness may be higher.

      Provillus is available for both men and women, and the treatment is a combination of a topical liquid applied to the balding areas, as well as a pill or capsule to be taken in conjunction with the liquid. The critical key to effectiveness, according to its makers, is the addition of the azelaic acid, however, the correct amount of this acid is most important piece of this treatment.

      As with most hair loss products, the makers recommend patience. It may take from 3-6 months for improvement to occur, however, there is a money-back guarantee up to 180 days if one is not satisfied that it is working for him/her.

      Medical research is far from finished in its exploration of products which will stop hair loss and promote re-growth of “permanent” loss. As this research continues, existing producers will undoubtedly alter their products accordingly.

      Fortunately, a lot of money is being poured into the research, so hair loss sufferers, take heart!

  38. QUESTION:
    Best Hair loss product..?
    I'm only 20 and my hair is thinning, I do not have any bald spots and my hair dresser says she doesn't see any signs of balding and that I just have fine hair.. but she hasn't been my hairdresser for long..

    Does anyone have any treatments, old remedies or tips to help me?

    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Find the 'cause' before you can find the solution, then eliminate them. Your hair will improve. Remember, whatever it was that caused them to fall out in the first place, it took years to get in your system, it will takes years to flush them down, so don't expect miracles overnight.

      So many reasons why you have hair loss:

      Supplements, steroids, hereditary, hair dyes perming, straightening, diet, having babies (yes I read once it happened to her), stress, medications with testosterone, certain antidepressants, menopause, anti-acne, and too much of everything. Add to that the 7,000 + toxic found in your home, plus pollution found outdoors. Your hair is crying for help!
      When your teeth falls or get cavities, do you blame the toothpaste?

      When your hair is crying for help, that's when it's too late to do anything about it, and hair products can not reverse the problem.

      They also say you normally lose 100-200 hair a day, but I don't. I lose about 7-8 every time I brush it, so that's about 100 per week, give or take.

      The majority of hair problems here are from girls in their 30s, asking how to care for their damaged hair, what product to make their hair grow, why their hair falls out, and why their shampoo or conditioner don't work. Women between 60-80 have that same problem, but it took them years to get there. And those same 30 & under girls are giving advice here? Now, I'm answering more problems re: hair fall or hair not growing from girls under 15. Go figure!

      Even the cheapest shampoo can do magic for your hair, so it must be what you're doing AFTER you wash it. Shampoos and vitamins might make your hair look and feel healthier, but they won’t put more hairs on your head.

      According Dr. Melissa Piliang, a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic. Americans spent an estimated 6 million on hair loss products last year, and chances are some of that money was not well spent. Don’t let charming salon owners, seductive ads or fancy gimmicks convince you otherwise.

      Source(s):
      Hair DX
      I know hair. I am in my early 60's, and I've been having menopause, and I am not experimenting hair loss, for those who said I don't know what I'm talking about when it comes to hair. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy long hair. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing. What you see on my profile is what I have now. It's as thick as when I'm in my teens.
      Stress, seldom. I went through stress when both parents died, plus sister taking me to court & selling the house, on my own and still no hair loss here!

  39. QUESTION:
    what are the causes and treatments for itchy scalp with hair loss?
    I am a 30 year old African American female who is expecting. I currently start to experience a severe itchy scalp with some hair loss (hair shedding). This all occured about 2 weeks ago. I have yet talk to my doctor because I have been trying to treat it with a product called Sulfur 8 ( shampoo and hair conditioner). I still have not found a relief as of yet.

    • ANSWER:
      I have read about a number of different home remedies such as using lemon juice or egg whites massaged into the scalp to stop hair loss and itchiness. I think both might work in your case. Also, since you are expecting, you are probably under a lot of stress (as my wife was when she was expecting and had a similar problem.)

      If this doesn't seem to correct the problem, it may be a bigger issue. I did a quick search and found this website:

  42. QUESTION:
    any experience with treatments for hair loss?
    My hair is thinking around the temples. I'm 25 years old. I'm not sure whether to start using rogaine or finasteride. I'm a bit scared since some reviews are negative. I don't think I'd ever have transplants simply because I think I'd rather be bald (I have rarely seen ones which look natural). So may be the aforementioned products are my only hope. What do you guys think? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Rogaine foam has worked very well in my case, even on the hairline... beyond maintenance... actual major regrowth

  43. QUESTION:
    how can i help a Hair loss treatment as soon as possible ?
    hey ..
    i am suffering from a huge hair loss and destroyed hair ends .. coz of the baby lisse and serum .
    and while searching online i found the many people suggested the (kaminomoto ) a japanese treatment for hair growth and accelerator ..
    and also pantogar pills
    did any one try any of those so that they can share their experience according to this product with me ?
    or any other suggestion that helps ??
    thanks alot guys
    waiting to help me so soonnn

    • ANSWER:
      Quick research shows the ingredients of Kaminomoto are listed as, “alcohol denat, water, rosemary extract, capsicum frutescens, glycerine, menthol, sophora radix (kujin extract), allantoin, panthenol, pyridoxine HCl, isodonis japonicus (enmeiso extract), glycyrrhetinic acid (kanzo extract), hinokitiol (hinoki extract), neo-takanal, fragrances”. So in other words, it contains nothing that will help with treating your hair loss. Is it the right product for you? Well, if you’re using it to regrow your hair or halt your hair loss, then no.

      The ingredients of Pentogar is listed below:

      Thiamine Mononitrate
      calcium d-pantothenate
      medicinal yeast
      L-cystine
      keratin
      para-aminobenzoic acid

      Looks like the most important ingredient in Pentogar is the Keratin which is found in most anti-hairloss shampoo. But would this work by taking it orally is yet proven.

      Have you heard about Provillus? There are many people who have regained their hair with the help of this product. Provillus as a supplement treats the main cause of hair fall. It contains special vitamins and minerals which help in maintaining the balance of the hormones responsible for hair growth and maturation. It is natural and effective for both men and women.But people with history of chronic diseases like diabetes and other systemic diseases should consult their physician before trying anything.

      You can have a free try of this product by going to the website listed in the source.

  46. QUESTION:
    Hair loss problem, need advice for best possible product or operation to help grow my hair back?
    Im 19 Years Old young man, I do have hypothyroidism but it is in the process of being taken care of now. I have used Gel, Wax and other hair products for several years till last year I began to see my scalp in the mirror. I started using Oil, my hair doesnt fall so much now but still i see 1 or 2 fall when i stroke my hair. Is there any product anyone has used and has proven to get results of gaining hair out there, im too young to lose hair :( . Also if there is no product to reccomend is there a certain operation thats proven to get results? I have looked into Laser Treatment and Hair Transplant but im not sure. I need advice.

    • ANSWER:
      There's only two hair loss drugs clinically tested and FDA approved : Minoxidil (Rogaine and other brands) and Finasteride (Proscar, Propecia, etc.), there are some interesting drugs too like Dutasteride or Follica but there aren't enough studies yet.
      If you're into natural stuff, the only one that might be helpful is Saw Palmeto (there are capsules for sale in natural shops) because it contains anti androgens similar to the ones found on Propecia.

      Laser treatment can improve your existing hair but wont help you regrow lost hair, hair transplant works but i would consider it the last option especially since you're still young.

      Minoxidil if you buy generic brands it's quite cheap and Proscar if you get the generic version it's reasonably cheap and will last you a long time.

      Quite frankly all the other stuff are either placebos or scams.

  50. QUESTION:
    Where can I get a combination folligen and emu oil-based product to improve the condition of my hair?
    I am African-American and have chemically relaxed my hair with box treatments for years. I have noticed that I do not get the same results with my chemical relaxing that I once did in the past. My hair does not respond as readily to conditioning products that I once used and the relaxer does not last as long as it once did. I have heard a lot about the products folligen, I believe it is found in Minoxidil, and Emu oil as excellent products to restore damaged hair due to modern day styling techniques. I have not, however, seen much information on over-the-counter products containing them besides Minoxidil for hair loss and Super Strength Blue Emu Oil for joint and muscle pain. Are there any stores that carry these products like Walmart, Walgreen's, or GNC?

    • ANSWER:
      My hair is also relaxed & I've decided to give emu oil a shot myself. I just purchased the oil itself off ebay. Faintly smells like chicken.Extra virgin olive oil is excellent also. How are you applying your relaxers? No-lye relaxers are harder on the hair than lye relaxers & timing is very crucial w/ either type. If you've been using a no-lye relaxer I strongly recommend stretching your relaxer for about 8 weeks (so you'll have about 1" of new growth) & then ONLY touching up your roots w/ a lye relaxer. Be sure to base your scalp & try not to overprocess. You should never relax your entire head if a relaxer has been applied once before.Your hair right now could be overprocessed or underprocessed depending on how careful you are while self relaxing. Also your hair might be growing at a faster rate, that is why it may seem like you need another relaxer every time you turn around. If your hair is damaged & breaking I highly recommend Nexxus emergencee then following up w/ a moisturizing conditioner free of any proteins like nexxus humuctress, nectaress, or aphogee balancing moisturizer conditioner. You have to make sure that you follow up w/ a moisturizing conditioner w/ out protein otherwise your hair will be too hard from the protein & snap off. Don't be scared though because it will dramatically improve the condition of your hair & cut down on the breakage. If you're looking for something to make your hair grow faster I doubt anything will help you & I wouldn't recommend using minoxidil unless you seriously have thinning hair. Lot's of people have had success using a product called Shapley's MTG on their scalps. It is an equine product that has sulfur in it. I've tried it myself & it's alright, but it smells like bacon. If u decide to try it, be sure you don't have any in your hair the week of your relaxer because your scalp will burn. I hope that helps some in your hair journey. If you're trying to grow your hair long be VERY careful with it, keep it covered at night & try not to use heat styling tools more than 1x a week after you wash & be patient :) Good luck!


Hair Loss Treatments For Black Men

The eyebrows are one of the most undervalued components of facial features. They define the space between a person's eyes and their forehead, in addition to adding symmetry to the face. When an individual loses their eyebrows, whether partially or completely, it can have an impact on their self esteem and how they view themselves. However, eyebrow hair transplants can be used to fill out partial eyebrows or camouflage scarring that may occur in the eyebrow region of the face.

Eyebrow transplants are generally performed as an outpatient procedure, and the side effects of the surgery are usually limited to minor swelling or redness in the particular region. An individual can resume their active lifestyle within twenty four hours of the surgery.

During an eyebrow hair transplant, a small section of hair producing skin is removed from a donor area of the individual's scalp. The area of the scalp from which the hair is removed will be dependent upon the texture and the orientation of the hair. It also ensures that the color of the eyebrow hair implants will match the natural coloring of the individual's hair and skin tone. Ideally, the donor hair that is chosen for removal should be fine in texture; however, different ethnic hair types can be used if they are modified to appear more aesthetically pleasing. The placement of the transplants will also allow them to look more natural.

After the strip of skin has been removed from an individual's scalp, grafts are then created from the strip of hair. Microscopes are used in the process of creating the grafts so that the grafts are very fine and precise. A single graft generally contains only one or two hairs. The delicate eyebrow hair implants are then surgically placed into small incisions that are made along the eyebrow region. Each incision in the eyebrow site is performed by hand to ensure that the placement of the grafts appears natural. Depending upon the texture of the hair being used for the eyebrow transplantation, a single eyebrow may require as many as 250 to 325 grafts. As the new hairs acclimate to their new growing position, occasional trimming may be required.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Parents won't let me in treatment, now I'm half bald w/ STDs?
    I'm 15. I went to the doctor yesterday cuz he thinks I have an STI, I've slept with over 3 dozen guys and almost all of them are black. I don't like white men.

    I pull my hair out. I stopped for a few months but I started again & it's a lot worse now. My whole top of head is bald, I try parting my hair differently but it still shows through. My mother thought it was hair loss from a fungal infection & she asked the dr to look at it. He asked if I pulled my hair, half the time he was with me was how I should be seeing a counselor. I can't even go 20 minutes without pulling a bunch of hairs out.

    A couple years ago I was on medication & therapy for depression, but my parents didn't want me in treatment so they said if I'm on meds then I'm not allowed to go anywhere but school w/ out them. My mom's sister and nephew were diagnosed w/ bipolar, so maybe she doesn't want me like them? They thought medication would mess me up.

    During the summer for like 4 months I was so hyper and happy. I was really impulsive, too. That's when I started sleeping around. I even walked 3 miles along the highway during rush hour, I now realize that was pretty stupid. Idk why I feel depressed again.

    With my parents just hating me being in treatment, what am I supposed to do??

    • ANSWER:
      Tell all this to the school nurse and counselor. They can make your parents get you the help you need. It looks like you are bipolar and their thoughts that meds would mess you up don't make them right. They aren't doctors. Also, it looks as tho they'd rather see you suffer than admit they are not handling it properly.

      Fight for yourself for a change.


Hair Loss Treatment Women

It is often the case that it is often fine for men to get bald. But this does not necessarily mean that there are no men feeling ashamed about it which is why they try to prevent hair loss. With that being said, imagine how people should ever accept thinning hair in women remembering that hair is one of their main appeals. So, when their hair begins to fall out, they may lose confidence as well.

If you are a female facing quite plenty hair beginning to fall off all of a sudden, you need to ask yourself first if there is an apparent reason why this may take place, such as putting on a hair style with the hair tied back tightly? Are you facing lots of stress at the given time? Is your diet normal recently? Now those things may sound simple, but they may have a great impact on what is actually happening with the scalp you have.

Yet, it is possible that none of those things above happens in your life and that you are in fact losing more hairs with each passing day. In this case, there is a pretty good chance of hormonal issue. Hormonal changes may greatly impact the hair growth rate. Below are some common things that may happen to a female to adjust hormones yet to interfere with the rate of hair growth.

  9. QUESTION:
    Which is the best dietary supplement or vitamin known for severe women hair loss?
    I am very young, not even 18, and i've already tried many hair loss treatments without result.. Can you recommend any?

    • ANSWER:
      Several reasons can cause excessive hair lose. A severe illness or major surgery, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal problems, your current medicine intakes, certain hair treatments that use chemical dyes, bleaches, and straightening or curling agent, or autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks hair follicles causing hair on the head to fall out, etc.

      Supplements recommendations for hair lose:

      B vitamins are important for the health and growth of the hair,especially B6, biotin, folic acid, B5 (pantothenic acid and B3 (niacin)
      http://www.marketamerica.com/lcbeauty/index.cfm?action=shopping.wpGoShopProducts&prodID=2241

      For Vitamin B complex, I would recommend Isotonix line when available because Isotonix line it's the only oral supplements in the market with isotonic capability when mixing with certain amount of water. Any food or pills taken orally must be digested within our stomach and transported in an isotonic state before our body can absorb its nutrients, this process can take from 40 minutes to 4 hours. Remember our stomach is very high acidic, which means many nutritional values are lost during digestion.

      This means that when we drink a supplement that’s isotonic, our stomach does not need to digest it, so that it can enter our small intestines for absorption within minutes. With Isotonix products, little nutritive value is lost, making the absorption of nutrients highly efficient while delivering maximum results.

      Another supplement I would recommend is to increase omega-3 fatty acids in your diet.
      Omega 3 provide anti-inflammatory property and it’s very important for healthy hair growth.

      I would recommend Heart Health™ Essential Omega III Fish Oil
      http://www.marketamerica.com/lcbeauty/index.cfm?action=shopping.wpGoShopProducts&prodID=2247

      When shopping for fish oil in the market, always look at its EPA and DHA values, because these are the omega 3 readily benefit for human body. Also pay attention to the guarantee of free hard metal contamination.

      Heart Health™ Essential Omega III Fish Oil provides three grams of EPA and DHA, which studies reveal to be the most efficient amount for optimal health and has been tested twice to ensure free of heavy metals.

      In additions, decrease your animal protein intake and try to replace with plant protein when possible. Excessive animal proteins might cause inflammation in your body, encourage hair lose.

      Eat more fruits and vegetables regularly.

      Handle your hair gently, allowing it to air-dry whenever possible and avoid hair product that contain chemical ingredients.

      If you are looking for a gentle shampoo without harsh chemicals and nature base ingredients, try Royal Spa Ultra III Shampoo. This salon formula botanical shampoo, conditioner and finishing rinse in one for dry and chemically treated hair.

      Hair loss in women is more rare since women have trace amounts of testosterone and even these minute amounts can be converted into hair loss inducing DHT. Commonly, women going through menopause experience hair thinning and loss. It is understood that during menopause, women stop ovulating because of erratic estradiol, testosterone, and estrogen levels. These erratic hormone levels can result in higher levels of testosterone that can then be converted in DHT.
      In both men and women, the role of hormones in causing hair loss is clear. By understanding the causes of it, the solution is clear: stop DHT from being produced and or stop it from acting on hair follicles.

  16. QUESTION:
    Why does low thyroid cause hair loss in women?
    Why hasn't thyroid replacement treatment stopped hair loss? Any treatment suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      It may not have anything to do with low thyroid.We tend to think of it as a guy thing. But some experts believe that dramatically thinning hair--the fallout (literally) from stress, poor nutrition, an underlying medical condition, harsh hair treatments, or heredity, among other causes--is as common in women as it is in men.

      Roughly half of all women over age 40 experience excessive hair loss. And one study estimates that it occurs in 75 percent of women over age 65.

      Perhaps you've noticed a few extra hairs in the sink after a combing. Or maybe your scalp appears a little more visible when you emerge from the shower. If you fear that your hair may be thinning significantly, read on to learn more about hair loss in women--what causes it, what it looks like, and what you can do about it.

      What's Causing My Hair Loss?
      The most common type of hair loss from the scalp (as opposed to hair loss all over the body) is androgenetic alopecia (AA), or pattern baldness. When it occurs in men, it's called male-pattern baldness; in women, it's female-pattern baldness. AA accounts for 95 percent of all cases of head-only hair loss and it results when, for reasons science hasn't identified, hair follicles become sensitive to the hormone androgen.

      Who Gets It?
      AA is hereditary. A history of the condition in men or women on either side of your family (not just your mom's side, as most people believe) increases your risk of developing it and also influences the age at which your hair loss begins, the speed with which it occurs, and its pattern and extent. But a family history isn't always a factor: About 12 percent of people with AA have no trace of it in their family trees.

      What Does It Look Like?
      Alopecia means baldness. But women with AA rarely go completely bald, as some men do. Most often a woman's hair simply thins gradually and diffusely on the top of or all over her head. In both men and women, AA is permanent and continues with aging.
      What Can I Do?
      Be sure to consult an expert who can help determine why your hair is thinning so you can treat the problem correctly. To find a physician in your area who specializes in diseases of the skin and hair, check out the American Academy of Dermatology Web site. Click on Find a Dermatologist to search by state, city, area code, zip code, or last name.

      In the meantime, however:

      Don't Be Afraid to Wash Your Hair
      It won't lead to hair loss.

      Avoid Brushing or Teasing
      Both can lead to hair loss. Use a wide-toothed comb instead.

      Try a New 'Do
      A style with layers will help your hair look fuller. You can even perm or color your hair; medically, there's no reason not to. Just avoid a weave or any other style that can put prolonged tension on your hair or cause it to break, which can lead to further hair loss.

      Am I Losing It?
      The truth is, you are--everyone is. Most of us shed 50 to 150 hairs a day. Once a hair is shed, a new hair from the same follicle replaces the lost strand--unless you have AA. AA occurs when the rate of hair shedding exceeds the rate of hair regrowth, or when the new hair shafts that grow in are thinner than the previous ones, making your mane look progressively less thick.

      Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
      You can experience temporary hair loss, and unlike androgenetic alopecia, it's not gradual. Here are two for-women-only causes of temporary hair loss.

      Giving Birth
      During pregnancy, the rise in hormones sends hair into its resting phase, so hair that would naturally fall out doesn't. Several months after delivery, hormones return to normal, and some women experience an increase in hair loss (all over the head, not just at the top). This can last between 1 and 6 months; then, it usually corrects itself.

      Starting the Pill
      Some women lose hair while taking birth control pills. The reasons: shifting hormone levels (caused by the Pill) and heredity. If this happens to you, talk to your gynecologist about switching to a different Pill or birth control method.
      If you've been checked out by the dermatologist and determined to have thyroid-related hair loss, you may have to settle in and be a bit patient. It's likely that for most, the hair loss will slow down, and eventually stop, once hormone levels are stabilized and in the normal range. This may take a few months, however. But rest assured, I've had many thousands of emails from people, and have yet to hear from anyone who lost most of his or her hair, or became bald, due to thyroid disease. But people -- including myself -- have experienced significant loss of hair volume. In my case, I'd guess at one point, I lost almost half my hair. I had long, thick hair, and it got much thinner at various times. But now, with my thyroid fairly regulated, a T4/T3 drug, and use of EPO, it is at about 85-90% of where it used to beI still have short periods when it seems to be shedding a bit more than usual, but they are quite infrequent. (I used to think I was going to able to stuff pillows with all the hair I was losing!)
      Look at Other Alternatives

      In one study, Dr. Hugh Rushton, a professor at Portsmouth University, also found that 90 percent of women with thinning hair were deficient in iron and the amino acid lysine. Lysine is the most difficult amino acid to get enough of via diet. Lysine helps transport iron, which is the most important element in the body and essential for many metabolic processes. When lysine and iron levels are low, the body probably switches some hair follicles off to increase levels elsewhere. Meat, fish and eggs are the only food sources of lysine. There are also supplements that contain lysine.

      Some other natural ways to deal with hair loss include:

      Arginine
      Cysteine
      Green Tea
      Polysorbate 80
      Progesterone
      Saw Palmetto
      Trichosaccaride
      Vitamin B6 Zinc
      Consult a Doctor for a Prescription Treatment
      In some cases, your dermatologist may recommend that you try drug treatments. The two popular drugs for hair loss -- Rogaine and Propecia -- both interfere with DHT's ability to destroy hair follicles. Neither drug is safe to use during pregnancy, however, and so they are not as commonly used in women of child-bearing age. Rogaine, the brand name for minoxidil, is available without a prescription. Women typically use a 2% minoxidil solution applied to the scalp twice a day, and men use a 5% solution. Improvements with minoxidil are slow - it may take months to see any improvement, and a year or more for any dramatic change in hair loss and regrowth. To maintain improvements, minoxidil needs to be continued daily. Propecia, the brand name for finasteride, is a prescription drug taken in pill form. It is not to be used by women in child-bearing years because of its ability to cause serious birth defects, but it has been shown to help some women. Propecia does not, however, appear to be any more effective than minoxidil, and like minoxidil, it can take a year to see results, and must be taken for life to maintain regrowth.

      Consider Other Options

      Ultimately, if thyroid treatment, drugs, and supplements do not resolve your hair loss, and it is a debilitating problem, you may want to consider other options, including:

      Hair-transplant surgery. In this treatment, donor hair follicles are taken from an area of your head that is not thinning. Tiny grafts of just a few hair follicles are implanted in your thinning areas. When successful, the transplanted follicles begin to regrow hair in the sparser areas. Several treatments may be necessary, and visible regrowth may take a year. This approach is better for patches of hair loss, rather than general thinning.

      A hair weave, which adds artificial hair to existing hair.

      Hairpieces and falls (that can be attached under natural hair, or via combs) for additional fullness and styling options, or wigs.

      Could You Have Alopecia?
      Hope this helps.

    • ANSWER:
      The symptom of hair loss could be an indication of a hormone imbalance (an example only) such as with the thyroid but the only way to know for sure is to see your doctor for further evaluation. Before even talking to the doctor though I would recommend letting your mom know what's going on so that she can help you keep an eye on it.

  19. QUESTION:
    What are best women's hair loss treatments?

    • ANSWER:
      ormonal imbalance, surgery and pregnancy can cause hair loss. Certain medications like contraceptive pills, blood thinners and anti-fungal medicines lead to hair loss. Chemotherapy treatment can cause massive amounts of hair to fall out. The treatment meted out to the hair can have an impact on your hair loss. If you are tying your hair back regularly, it results in alopecia, where the scalp is scarred and new growth of hair stops. Besides, perming, coloring, blow-drying, using inferior quality hair care products and nutritional deficiencies are the other major factors in hair loss.

  20. QUESTION:
    what causes hair loss in women in there 60's and is there any treatment for it?

    • ANSWER:
      The causes of hair loss in women may be different from the causes of baldness in men. Dermatologists said that hair loss is a growing problem affecting women that may occur even in an earlier age.

      Factors for hair loss in women

      The following are some reasons why hair follicles break their normal cycle and switch into a resting phase. These are the factors why some women experience thinning of hair and thicker hair on the other parts of their bodies. The causes include any or a combination of emotional and physical state such as stress, hormonal imbalance (especially androgen sensitivity), genetics.

      Some are caused by immune system irregularities including thyroid disorders, nutritional deficiencies (Iron and Vitamin A). Others may be due to cosmetic factors. Lastly, health conditions may contribute to the situation due to radiation or chemotherapy, dental treatment, blood loss, drugs, diseases, surgery and scarring.

  21. QUESTION:
    How do you stop hair loss in women? IS there any supplements or treatments that work to prevent hair loss?

    • ANSWER:
      I don't think so. If it is hereditary then you are stuck. Rogaine for women works really well but takes four months to see a difference. Hair extentions are popular now if your hair is VERY thin.
      Have you told your doctor? Possible it could be an thyroid or hormonal issue.
      OBTW, take a multivitamin everyday.

  24. QUESTION:
    If spironolactone is used to treat hair loss then why did my doctor prescribe it to me?
    I have increased testosterone levels and have hair growth on my face (like on the sides, nothing compared to a man growing a beard) but obviously more hair than a woman should have. If spironolactone is used for hair loss treatment, why would my doctor prescribe it to help stop the extra hair growth...? yes, i know ask my doctor but clearly at midnight i cannot call my doctor and ask

    • ANSWER:
      Well spironolactone is used to prevent testosterone from acting on its receptors, that are found in certain parts of our body. Therefore, it is a testoterone antagonist.

  27. QUESTION:
    What options are available to fix Hair Loss for Older Women?
    I am a 50yr old women and I am losing hair in a few spots in my head and I wanted to know what are some great products or treatments available to help me with new growth in those affected areas. I am trying to avoid wigs.

    • ANSWER:
      Find the 'cause' before you can find the solution, then eliminate them. Your hair will improve. Remember, whatever it was that caused them to fall out in the first place, it took months even years to get in your system, it will takes years to flush them down, so don't expect miracles overnight.

      So many reasons for hair loss:

      Supplements, steroids, hereditary, hair dyes perming, straightening, diet, having babies (yes I read once it happened to her), stress, medications with testosterone, certain antidepressants, menopause, anti-acne, and too much of everything. Add to that the 7,000 + toxic found in your home, plus pollution found outdoors. Your hair is crying for help!
      Ex. of relaxed hair. http://monicabtheorganicstylist.wordpress.com/tag/hair-relaxers/

      When your hair is crying for help, that's when it's too late to do anything about it, and hair products can not reverse the problem.

      They also say you normally lose 100-200 hair a day, but I don't. I lose about 7-8 every time I brush it, so that's about 100 per week, give or take.About 23-25 if I shampooed/brush my hair, which is every 4th day.

      The majority of hair problems here are from girls in their 30s, asking how to care for their damaged hair, what product to make their hair grow, why their hair falls out, and why their shampoo or conditioner don't work. Women between 60-80 have that same problem, but it took them years to get there. And those same 30 & under girls are giving advice here? Now, I'm answering more problems re: hair fall or hair not growing from girls under 15. Go figure!

      Even the cheapest shampoo can do magic for your hair, so it must be what you're doing AFTER you wash it. Shampoos and vitamins might make your hair look and feel healthier, but they won’t put more hairs on your head.

      According Dr. Melissa Piliang, a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic. Americans spent an estimated 6 million on hair loss products last year, and chances are some of that money was not well spent. Don’t let charming salon owners, seductive ads or fancy gimmicks convince you otherwise.

  28. QUESTION:
    what is the cause of hair loss in women?
    Hair loss does not run in the family especially not from ages 21 to 90. Hair has been thinning out since the age of 21 and stress is not an issue. 5 generations have thick hair both sides of family. doctors seem not concerned. daughters hair falling in clumps. 2 out of 5 have same problem. help
    any treatments or remedy's please.

    • ANSWER:
      For women, hair loss usually begins at menopause. Although hair loss in females normally occurs after the age of 50 or later when it does not follow events like pregnancy, chronic illness, crash diets, and stress among others, there have been rare cases reported in which hair loss affects women as young as 15 or 16. Ultimately, though, the balding process and rate vary from person to person. Whether it is slow or rapid, the individual would usually notice the first signs of hair loss. Thinning hair on the top and sides of the scalp is the most prevalent and immediately noticeable symptom.

      Factors such as a person’s activities, diet, medications, natural hormones, pregnancy and childbirth, use of birth control pills, improper hair care and certain diseases can also contribute to hair loss. The extent to which these factors affect an individual varies from one person to the next. While chemical treatments, pollution, hair-styling products and blow-drying have not been found to directly cause hair loss, they can dry and weaken hair, increasing breakage and perpetuating hair loss. A lack of good blood circulation to the scalp may also contribute to hair loss. When the hair root is well supplied with blood it is stronger and less susceptible to the shrinking effects caused by hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone). When not, the roots and follicles can weaken and eventually lead to hair falling out.

      If hair loss is something you’re already encountering, your first step should be to educate yourself and determine the severity and scope of your hair loss. Bosley offers various FDA approved hair loss treatments and the only permanent hair loss solution- surgical hair restoration. Consultations at Bosley are offered to address any questions you might have on hair loss and hair loss treatments. As always, Bosley consultations are free of charge and there is no obligation to move forward to doing a procedure.

      Generally speaking, your available options depend on the type of hair loss you have, the degree of hair loss you currently experience and the cosmetic goals you have for restoring lost hair. Propecia and Minoxidil treatments, as well as laser therapy with the Bosley LaserComb, are most effective in retaining existing hair, but are not as effective in re-growing lost hair. All these treatments provide temporary solutions–any benefits received in retaining or restoring hair are lost if you stop treatment.

      For those with more advanced hair loss who are looking to restore hair and not merely retain their existing hair, surgical hair restoration is the best bet. If you are looking for a permanent solution to hair loss, then surgical hair restoration performed at Bosley might be your final and only option. Bosley offers the only permanent and the most significant solution to hair loss–surgical hair transplantation.

  34. QUESTION:
    Can I use Hair Loss treatments on my hair?
    Hi :)
    I am 17 years old.
    I do not have any form of hair loss, as in- I'm not balding or anything like how you see in the picture examples in hair loss commercials.
    However, my hair did break off though at the top, due to mistreating my hair, getting relaxers and not keeping up with them, constant flat ironing, etc.
    So I was wondering, would it be safe to use hair loss treatments (like the stuff that older men/women use on their hair when they're getting hair loss due to aging)
    could that work on just helping speed up the growth in my hair? I hope this makes sense,

    i have a friend who has hair that goes about an inch passed her belly button, and after she got out of the shower i saw her squirt some hair loss product for men in her hair, and her hair looks perfectly healthy, smooth, and extremely long and thick.
    so i was wondering if this could be something i could try as well?
    i'm hoping using hair loss product on my hair at my age doesn't cause more damage or hair loss,
    but i was wondering is it a possibility to use on hair not for hair loss problems, but simply for hair growth? thank you for your time.

    • ANSWER:
      Heredity, hormones, stress, diet, illness, poor hair care – all are factors in hair loss.

      Stress, diet and illness are more temporary conditions and usually the hair loss is reversed when the anxiety-producing conditions dissipate, when the diet is improved, when hair care improves and when an illness is cured or gotten under control.

      Heredity and hormones are different matters, however. Heredity is an irreversible condition. You are a product of your parents, and hair loss is often inherited. Hormones are tricky, hidden things, however, and they have different effects on an individual basis.

      In a male, testosterone abides abundantly. There are also enzymes working on testosterone which product a substance called DHT. DHT is now known to circulate in the blood and cause other conditions, one of which is the shrinking of hair follicles. When hair follicles shrink enough, they are unable to produce and push a new hair through. As old hair dies, it is then not replaced.

      In women, hormonal imbalances can also cause hair loss. Pregnancy, childbirth and menopause all cause significant hormonal change and imbalances with both physical and mental effects. These changes can also cause hair loss, both temporary and permanent.

      Hair loss and re-growth products have been around for centuries. In ancient times, a variety of herbal and oil-based remedies were concocted and used by Egyptians, Aztecs, Mayans, and American Indians, all with some degree of effectiveness for some people. Modern medical research has focused on ways to re-open and stimulate “dead” hair follicles, so that hair growth can re-occur naturally, as well as keep the healthy follicles healthy. Thus, a number of products have become available, both by prescription and over-the-counter. They are advertised on radio and television and all over the Internet. One need only do a “google” search on hair loss, and there are literally thousands of sites and products for investigation.

      One ingredient in many hair loss products is minoxidil. Research studies have shown that in about 80% of the participants, products containing this ingredient are effective in slowing hair loss and, in some, causing re-growth to occur.

      Probably the most well known is Rogaine, available at any drug store, in varieties for both men and women. Most scientifically-produced products do have separate products for males and females, because, of course, hormones in each are different and of different levels.

      An additional product containing minoxidil is Provillus, and, again, studies have shown it to be effective. The difference between Provillus and other similar products is that the makes have added Azelaic Acid, an additional ingredient which appears to enhance the follicle repair in both men and women. Provillus has been the subject of many studies, just as the other products, and level of effectiveness may be higher.

      Provillus is available for both men and women, and the treatment is a combination of a topical liquid applied to the balding areas, as well as a pill or capsule to be taken in conjunction with the liquid. The critical key to effectiveness, according to its makers, is the addition of the azelaic acid, however, the correct amount of this acid is most important piece of this treatment.

      As with most hair loss products, the makers recommend patience. It may take from 3-6 months for improvement to occur, however, there is a money-back guarantee up to 180 days if one is not satisfied that it is working for him/her.

      Medical research is far from finished in its exploration of products which will stop hair loss and promote re-growth of “permanent” loss. As this research continues, existing producers will undoubtedly alter their products accordingly.

      Fortunately, a lot of money is being poured into the research, so hair loss sufferers, take heart!

  35. QUESTION:
    Any treatment for hair loss?
    I'm a woman in my late 30's and lossing much hair. Especially when I wash or comb it. Any suggestions? Please help. Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      NIOXIN< across the counter (salon sold), check with www.nioxin.com for a referral in your area. Try & see a sytlist that can answer your questions ( & ask you questions, to know what might be triggering this). Nioxin is not a drug based product, it will not cause hair to grow, but it will remove the influences that are causing it to fall out. Has your thyroid been checked, thyroid disease can cause hair loss. Are you taking new drugs ( birth control , or not taking drugs you were taking?) All of these can be reasons for the loss. Job change, boyfriend troubles? These are all contributors, to a DNA trait you may carry. Good luck, look into NIOXIN..............

    what is creatine cream bath to repair hair for women?
    hi my wife have a problem with her hair loss and broken and rough.
    the beauty salon offered a expensive treatment by creatine will it help or it has side effects thank you

    • ANSWER:
      it will not help!!! and it can have side effects!! she should be careful...

      anyway as we know hair loss can be caused by many different reasons! There are many causes of loss of hair such as stress, poor nutrition ,medications, thyroid dysfunctions, illness, fungal infections, hormonal problems, to mention a few.

      year ago I suffered very much from dandruff and hair loss too and I started trying everything you can imagine to stop my hair loss.
      the things that really worked for me was:

      1) Vitamin A - an anti-oxidant which promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp;

      2) Vitamin E stimulates circulation. Good blood circulation in the scalp is important in keeping hair follicles productive. The 'B' vitamins contribute to melanin, which gives hair its healthy color and also stimulates blood circulation;

      3) massage is also beneficial. Massage stimulates circulation. As already noted, good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Experts suggest a few minutes of daily head massage by hand. Circulation through massage may be improved by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base with massage;

      4) Try rubbing your scalp with garlic juice, Onion Juice or Ginger Juice(you can either of one out of three, Do not mix any of two or three);

      5) also I used herbal treatment - Provillus (do not use Rogaine - it will not work!)
      It is a good products that helps prevent hair loss and contains Biotin and the clinically tested ingredients approved by the FDA to help re-grow your hair.! I think it is very important!

      It worked and still works for me!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry Provillus but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.provillus.com/?aid=221781

      It enhances hair growth by blocking DHT (Dihydrotestostrone) - a major cause of hair loss!

  37. QUESTION:
    In order to determine the effects of a new pill that is supposed to reduce hair loss, a researcher conducts?
    In order to determine the effects of a new pill that is supposed to reduce hair loss, a researcher conducts a study. Five hundred volunteer subjects (300 men and 200 women) all of which suffer some degree of hair loss are selected to participate in the study. The researcher gives the women the real pill and the men a sugar pill, but only the researcher knows this.
    In the experiment, which is the placebo group?

    the 200 women
    the 300 men
    the subjects that responded to the treatment
    There is no placebo group.
    none of these

    • ANSWER:
      Heredity, hormones, stress, diet, illness, poor hair care – all are factors in hair loss.

      Stress, diet and illness are more temporary conditions and usually the hair loss is reversed when the anxiety-producing conditions dissipate, when the diet is improved, when hair care improves and when an illness is cured or gotten under control.

      Heredity and hormones are different matters, however. Heredity is an irreversible condition. You are a product of your parents, and hair loss is often inherited. Hormones are tricky, hidden things, however, and they have different effects on an individual basis.

      In a male, testosterone abides abundantly. There are also enzymes working on testosterone which product a substance called DHT. DHT is now known to circulate in the blood and cause other conditions, one of which is the shrinking of hair follicles. When hair follicles shrink enough, they are unable to produce and push a new hair through. As old hair dies, it is then not replaced.

      In women, hormonal imbalances can also cause hair loss. Pregnancy, childbirth and menopause all cause significant hormonal change and imbalances with both physical and mental effects. These changes can also cause hair loss, both temporary and permanent.

      Hair loss and re-growth products have been around for centuries. In ancient times, a variety of herbal and oil-based remedies were concocted and used by Egyptians, Aztecs, Mayans, and American Indians, all with some degree of effectiveness for some people. Modern medical research has focused on ways to re-open and stimulate “dead” hair follicles, so that hair growth can re-occur naturally, as well as keep the healthy follicles healthy. Thus, a number of products have become available, both by prescription and over-the-counter. They are advertised on radio and television and all over the Internet. One need only do a “google” search on hair loss, and there are literally thousands of sites and products for investigation.

      One ingredient in many hair loss products is minoxidil. Research studies have shown that in about 80% of the participants, products containing this ingredient are effective in slowing hair loss and, in some, causing re-growth to occur.

  38. QUESTION:
    Any suggestions on preventing hair loss from radiation?
    I'm in my 3rd recurrance of cancer and this time it's in my skull. Losing my hair when I had chemo was no big deal because it grows back, but now I've been told I should have radiation treatments. That can cause permanent hair loss. I've heard about a woman who used men's Rogaine to prevent hair loss when she was on radiation. Has anyone else heard of this?

    • ANSWER:
      My hair is still not back from radation.
      The damage is more permanent than with chemo.

  40. QUESTION:
    Women only: I am considering a lace front wig from a hairloss place?
    I had a consultation for hair loss at the Hair Club for Men and Women. I have diffuse hairloss on the top of my head. The consultant told me that the best option for me would be a lace-front wig, which would cover the thinning area. The piece would cost around 00 to 00. I talked to my sister about it and she recommended that I go to some of the local hair salons, where they do these types of wigs for a lot cheaper.

    I would like to know if anyone has had a lace front wig done by the HC for Men and Women. If so, were you happy with your results??

    Also, how would a lace front wig/weave be just as good from a regular salon, if it is cheaper? My sister said that her friend has had several, and they use human hair and she believes the process would be the same as it would be at the hair loss treatment center.

    One of my concerns is making sure that the hair is a very close match to my own. I have a multi-ethnic/racial background and my hair is very soft with waves and the hair strands are very fine. When I shampoo and brush it back into a ponytail to let it dry naturally, the top can be very straight. It can also go into very nice corkscrew curls or waves when I air dry it, but it is also very easy to straighten...Therefore, I would need a hair texture that is very versatile and bouncy.

    • ANSWER:
      Hiya,

      I'm sorry about your hairloss, it's really distressing.

      Firstly I think the best way forward is for me to be honest with you.

      Frontals shouldn't cost more than 0 at the very most.
      It will be hard to mimick the exact texture of your hair as your natural hair isn't identical to the majority of hair donors so go for the closest match to yours, if you spend less for a quality wig then you'll be able to experiment.

      If the company your using can match the hair texture then by all means the price is worth it, but if it's just a close match then you can get frontals for less money.

      I hope that helps,

      Chaz

I was thinking of going to a dermatologist, but what if the problem is not on my scalp? will a dermatologist also perform blood tests to rule out the chances of anemia or other physical reasons for my hair loss?....or will they only examine my scalp?

    what kind of doctor will perform tests on me to rule out all the possible causes ( blood test and scalp) will a regular general physcian do this or a dermatologist?

    will appreciate knowledgeable answers
    thank you :)
    my hair loss is not only in certain spots (im not getting bald spots) it's thinning and falling off from everywhere
    i had this problem before i got pregnant but while pregnancy my hair stopped falling so much. the hair loss returned a few months after childbirth (about 3 months ago) and is now worst than ever

    • ANSWER:
      Just go to your regular dr. first. She/he will be able to examine you and run the appropriate labs in order to determine if you need a specialist and which one to send you to if you do.

      Just FYI 'cause I'm a big nerd, here's a few things that cause alopecia(hair loss) along with other symptoms you might watch for.

      Medications that cause alopecia: warfarin, heparin, propylthiouracil, carbimazole, lithium, beta blockers, colchicine, & isotretinoin.
      -Telogen effluvium: diffuse hair loss following major stress, high fever, severe infections, hormone changes, post-partum.
      -Alopecia areata: hair follicles are attacked by T lymphocytes, usually seen in hyper or hypothyroidism, vitiligo, & down's syndrome. Characteristics include circular areas of hair loss & pitting of fingernails.
      -Tinea capitis: aka cradle cap, cased by the dermatophyte Trichophyton tonsurans. This infection can lead to scaling lesions on the scalp, patches of hair loss with stubble/broken hairs, and/or plaque formations with pustules(little bumps that look like pimples).
      -Androgenic allopecia: hair loss due to ovarian or adrenal gland dysfunction. Associated symptoms include deepened voice, clitoris enlargement, changes in skin, decreased breast tissue, & facial hair.
      -Lupus erythmatosus: may result in diffuse hair loss/involves the entire scalp or only invove the frontal scalp.

  44. QUESTION:
    .......hAIRLOSS TREATMENT?
    My mom is beginning to get a few really thin spots. I had been having her use Nioxin because I am very familiar with the success rate, but it is NOT helping her. I do not want ther using chemicals that enter your blood stream via the scalp AKA: Rogaine etc.
    Please ONLY answers from those who are using SAID products for hair loss..............I can google like anyone else. what I need is ACTUAL input from hair loss WOMEN. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I only have second-hand experience with this problem. About a year ago my sister began having problems with thinning hair. She, too, used nioxin, and tried an herbal supplement containing black cohosh. Neither helped.

      Eventually, she found that it was caused by a medication she was taking, a neuroleptic that is used for epilepsy and pain management. With the help of her doc, she switched to a new one, and gradually the problem went away.

      So, before your mom invests in other hair growing treatments, if she is taking any medications, it might be good to have her check with her doctor and pharmacist, and look them up yourself at www.rxlist.com (this is my personal favorite for finding out about rarer side effects, and my sister and I used this a lot to work out her problems). If it does turn out to be a med, you could be not only stopping her hair loss, but also other damage the drug could be doing.

      Best to you and your mom.

    • ANSWER:
      The idea is that it stimulates your closing hair follicles so that they grow hair instead of closing forever. It works for some people, especially if you can get it early in your hair loss. The concentration is less for women, and women shouldn't use the formula for men. Good luck!

  48. QUESTION:
    Do you think Ojon should warn of the hair-loss possibility of their products?
    I purchased some Ojon restorative treatment as well as some shampoo and conditioner, daily treatment spray and shine serum about 3 1/2 years ago and used only the Ojon products. I LOVED how conditioned and in control my hair was, it was the BEST stuff I had EVER used on my hair!!!!! After a few months I started to notice I was loosing a LOT of hair... I didn't put the two together... I got my Mum to use it when we were visiting the US. While there my little brother made a comment about my hair-loss and how bald I was going... I was CRUSHED!!!!! I hadn't thought it was as bad as it was!!!! I still didn't associate the Ojon with the hair-loss... Then, about 3 months ago as a treat for a favour my sister-in-law did for us, I bought her a couple of Ojon products... About a month later she asked me if I had noticed after using the Ojon that a lot of hair fell out... I laughed, but kept thinking about it and that night I realized that my hair-loss started when I started using Ojon products!!!!! Not only that, but I had remembered that my Mum had lost a lot when she had used the restorative while we were sitting there talking... I had to agree with my SIL, Ojon was making me bald!!!!!!!!! I have found other women online who used the products and the same thing happened to them...

    So for the question (sorry this was so long!!!), Don't you think Ojon should state that their products could cause hair-loss?

    I have a whole bunch of Ojon stuff left too but I am leery about giving it to anyone else!!!! That stinks cuz its expensive stuff!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Birth control pills like Diane 35 have anti-androgen qualities that may help. I hope your doctor checked for ovarian cysts, adrenal gland issues, and hormone secreting tumors.

My thyroid is in check and I have no health problems that cause hair loss, so I don't know how to fix this problem. My ob said there's really nothing anyone, male or female, can do about thinning hair. It's just age, hormone, stress related. He said even Rogaine doesn't work or else we wouldn't still see bald men, much less women! Does anyone who has had this problem know any treatments that truly made a difference before I go spending tons of cash on a million products promising thicker hair. Mind you, I'm not bald or balding - I've just noticed a definite thinning on the crown of my head and have to carefully style my hair so that my scalp doesn't show.

If you detect your sink at home is filling up with hair, or your comb and your sink are continually clogging due to to excessive hair, you're not alone. Millions of people worldwide are sharing in your grief, and it seems like it has reached epidemic proportions. There are really only 3 chief reasons you are losing more hair then your body can create, and in this article I will go over each cause in general.

1. Chronic Telogen Effluvium:

You will notice balding patches with this type of shedding. This type of balding happens mostly in Women because of blood loss occurring during the menstrual period. This type of hair loss does not occur overnight it can take years of iron deficiency for women to start losing there hair, however the damage is reversible with having an Iron decency, but it will not happen over night. Consult you doctor if you believe this can be you.

Eating meats and orange juice can battle having low Iron in your system also taking Iron Supplements can speed up the time it takes to bring your Iron levels up to par, but do not forget to consult your doctor before taking any supplementation.

2. Androgenic Hair Loss:

Androgenic hair loss is a noticeable bald patches that starting from the front and extending across the top of your head. This is considered the Genetic type of shedding. however it is not guaranteed genetic hair loss there may be other reasons associated with this condition.

Fighting this type of shedding can be difficult but is compilable. There are various products on the market that can deal with this type of hair loss, the best type of treatment are what is called DHT Blockers. The best type are the ones that are taken both orally and topically. With What ever treatment you decide, hold fast for at least 6-8 months before you will notice viable improvement, even the strongest FDA approved Drugs can take at least that long, so hang on.

3. Hormone related hair loss:

This type of shedding is associated with women after pregnancy, it is not a lasting hair loss condition, during pregnancy women stop shedding the normal amount of hair, after giving birth the body will turn back back to normal and normal shedding will occur. Some women taking a hormone called DHEA often times mistaken for DHA can increase hair loss dramatically. These drugs should be avoided at all costs. Men can lose there hair by taking anabolic Steroids, to much testosterone is a prevalent factor in how much hair lose that can occur. If you think this may be you consult your doctor for advice.

This article was simply written with you in mind, we covered why you are having hair loss, why some causes for hair loss are possible and the trhee main causes of hair loss. However I have done my best to keep this article as short as possible ,it is up to you the reader to now take action before your hair start to fall out and laden you the uncomfortable and undeniable.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Does burdock help with hair loss?
    I see products being sold to help with hair loss where the "active ingredient" is burdock extract. Is there any study showing the effectiveness of burdock extract to prevent hair loss or promote hair growth compared to placebo?

    The only information I found about this is from Wikipedia:

    Burdock root oil extract, also called Bur oil, is popular in Europe as a scalp treatment applied to improve hair strength, shine and body, help reverse scalp conditions, and combat hair loss. It is used as a natural hair oil to help get rid of scalp itching and dandruff, promote healing of skin and scalp conditions. Modern studies indicate that Burdock root oil extract is rich in phytosterols and essential fatty acids (including rare long chain EFAs), the nutrients required to maintain healthy scalp and promote natural hair growth. Regular use of Burdock oil helps restore and maintain healthy scalp and hair.

Hair Loss Treatments And

Hair loss treatments and remedies are mostly scams. They are no more than a concoction of products that you will find in oils and herbs that have no proven effect on balding. I fact some of these products will exacerbate the situation and may do irrevocable damage.

A leading medical journal in the US stated that based upon research many natural remedies in fact 93% of a sample size were no better than placebos and also said that some of the contents were highly poisonous - WOW!

This means that you really need to know what you are taking. It's rather like using a nicotene patch. Your body will absorb chemicals and if some of these are harmful then you really do need to be extremely careful - especially if you are pregnant.

Now rather than depress you any further - I just wanted to make you aware of some of the dangers first as with using any treatment or remedy there are ones that seem to work better in some situations than others. This is largely due to the cause of the hair loss.

Let's face it if your hair loss is due to traction alopecia (Excessive hair pulling). You are not going to need XYZ hair loss potion are you? The chances are if you have some sort of obsessive behaviour problem that's the solution!

Now if you have a problem with balding patches (assuming you are a women) then if you are 40 ish you could be having a menopausal reaction and a good HRT treatment may be your best solution.

You see hair loss can be a symptom of something more major going on in your body - so you need to try and establish what may have occurred to e causing the hair loss. Don't go buying this or that product because you think it's going to do what it says on the tin until you have exhausted all the other possible causes.

Find out some information. Read up on good web sites - there are plenty out there (many more bad ones though!) and then see your doctor to see that anything you may try is not going to harm you. Just get the facts and then act!

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    how to avoid side effects of hair loss treatments and have an effective hair regrowth ?
    I have tried minoxidil, finasteride, richfeel, dr batra's, ayurvedic but nothing helped. Is there really something which helps to regrow. I am losing hair since 3 years and my scalp is seen.Anybody had any regrowth with any treatment? Any hair treatment specialist in Mumbai? I am desperate to get my hair back.

    • ANSWER:
      go to revital trichology in bandra.......my brother is benefited by their treatment...we can see his head full by 40% in 3 months. their treatment is good.

  2. QUESTION:
    Are there any genuinely effective holistic or alternative hair loss treatments for men?
    Are there any genuinely effective holistic or alternative hair loss treatments for men that do not impact upon your health? The available chemical solutions mess with your hormones, which seems far too risky, to me ... and drugs like finisteride are still relatively new drugs and only time will tell if there are side effects. Hair loss should simply be accepted, but it is something I am not able to do yet.

    • ANSWER:
      There are several treatment options that may help to stimulate and encourage hair growth. If hair loss occurs as a result of an underlying condition or disease, then the condition needs to be treated first. The various types of hair loss are treated with specific medication which includes antibiotics, corticosteroids, or steroid injections. For more serious episodes of hair loss, surgical procedures such as hair transplants, scalp reduction or skin grafts may be performed to replace hair loss.

      Natural and holistic therapy offers a gentler alternative for people experiencing hair loss than the harsh effects of conventional medication. Treatments such as herbal and homeopathic remedies stimulate and encourage hair growth as well as support blood circulation, hormonal balance and thyroid functioning.

      Herbal remedies along with good nutritional diet (supplements in case of severe deficiency or if directed by your doctor) help hair grow stronger and more plentifully by nourishing it at the roots. They achieve this by stimulating blood flow and supplying nutrients to the hair follicles and hence promoting healthy hair growth and slowing down excessive hair loss. Although the process begins within a few days, as the hair grow slowly, the results are visible only after a few months.

      Herbs commonly used include Ginkgo biloba, Rosmarinus officinale and Xanthoxylum clavaherculis help to promote strong, abundant hair. Other powerful herbs such as Equisetum arvense, Avena sativa and Echinacea are effective combating hair loss and nourishing hair follicles.

  3. QUESTION:
    Would you consider using hair loss treatments?
    I have a friend that is 29 and slowly losing his hair. Right now it is long and he is afraid to cut it because it might show more that he is losing his hair. This is genetic and can not do much about it. Would you suggest him to cut it and start using hair loss treatments such as Rogaine? I don't know much about hair loss treatments and would love get an opinion or review about them from you.

    • ANSWER:
      There are more important things than hair loss treatments.
      Let a scientist explain WHY it became genetic and you will discover they are pseudoscientific applied statistical nitwits.

      For sure there are taoist (or maybe other) exercises and herbs that could help, but it's all very delicate and what might help for one may not help for another.

      When you get involved in these type of exercises, the attention for how much hair you have will disappear quickly :) .

  4. QUESTION:
    Do gels and hairsprays interfere with hair loss treatments ?
    Can I still use hair gel and styling aids along with my topical hair loss ointments?

    • ANSWER:
      It's dependant if your taking oral hair loss treatment then no if your applying the hair loss treatment to your scalp them possibly if the hair products are getting into you scalp as well. To be safe I'd leave off the gels etc while your going through the treatment. Hair spray may be safer as it attaches to the folicles. Good luck

  5. QUESTION:
    Has anyone had any ACTUAL success with hair-loss treatments?
    I've seen a lot of suggestions for preventing hair loss and regrowing hair, but I was wondering if anyone has had any PERSONAL success with any natural solutions, or products on the market?

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Diet and lifestyle are two major factors that influence the health of the hair. Poor diet, illness and deficiencies of any particular vitamin and mineral affects the quality of hair and problems like dandruff, thinning hair, balding, premature graying etc. spoil the hair.

  6. QUESTION:
    What are the dangers of Rogaine and other hair loss treatments?
    I want to use Rogaine or another hair regrowth product, but i am hesitant to do so because i personally think that there must be major long term side effects. Help me!

    • ANSWER:
      Excellent Question. In short, Rogaine (Minoxidil) is topical and so it limits its potential risks. The mechanism of actions is that Minoxidil may either activate the hair follicle directly or stimulate the microcirculation surrounding the follicle, increasing cutaneous blood flow via its vasodilating effects. (Minoxidil also may alter the metabolism of androgens in the scalp.) However, when Minoxidil is taken systemically (in pill form), it has hypotensive effects (lowers blood pressure). Therefore, it would be dangerous if too much Rogaine is absorbed through the head into the bloodstream. Luckily, topical minoxidil is poorly absorbed through the skin. The systemic absorption of topical minoxidil averages 2% (range 0.3—4.5%). Systemic adverse reactions are thus unlikely from topical administration. Placebo-controlled trials with topical minoxidil only showed an increase in dermatological effects from the active drug. Hence, the risk of hypotensive side effects are little to none. Using Rogaine on areas with sunburn or open wounds would obviously increase risk of systemic side-effects. I'm no doctor, but overall from my readings, I'd say Rogaine is pretty safe to use. The only real downside with this drug is that it must be applied 2x a day, and that regrowth will regress if you stop using it (this happens with Propecia too). It also presumably takes a few months for visible regrowth.

      The only other drug that is FDA approved for allogenic alopecia is Propecia (Finasteride). Unlike Rogaine, this is taken as a pill, which increases its chance for side-effects. This is because it not only can affect your hair, but also other places in your body via your bloodstream. Most frequently reported adverse reactions to finasteride were related to sexual function. Propecia also is teratogenesis and is absolutely contraindicated during pregnancy. Interestingly, finasteride was first used for treatment of BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia). So taking this drug for alopecia may also have the beneficial side effect of a reduced risk of BPH. However, in a 2003 NEJM article (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=12824459&query_hl=3&itool=pubmed_docsum), they found that use of Finasteride increased the risk of high-grade prostate cancer. This would obviously need more research to determine whether using Finasteride as a BPH preventative for the 25% decreased in prostate cancer risk (leading to decreased prostate-caused urinary problems) would be worth the increased risk of high-grade prostate cancer. Also, treatment for BPH uses doses of up to 5mg/day in contrast to the 1mg/day for alopecia, so the extent to which this study applies to the dose you would be taking is likely unknown.

      Other than that, there are other non-FDA approved approaches for hair loss such as Nizoral Shampoo (1-2% Ketoconazole) among others. But there isn't anywhere as much documentation for those.

      Hopefully this helps a bit...

  7. QUESTION:
    Anyone have hair loss treatments other than salon products/hair transplants? Any reliable holistic treatments?
    Any suggestions that have worked for you for hair loss and itchy scalp? Have tried different shampoo and salon scalp treatments. Have seen a doctor but no answers.

      Together, these herbs are highly capable of:

      - Promoting healthy hair growth
      - Encouraging healthy blood supply and circulation to the hair follicle and scalp
      - Discouraging common age-related hair loss and hair thinning
      - Supporting the thyroid and all mechanisms involved in hormonal balance in the body
      - Supporting the body’s ability to obtain nutrients from food, thus promoting healthy, strong hair

  8. QUESTION:
    Do hair loss treatments work for women?
    I have a balding patch on my hair line. Im not sure if its because I bleached my hair 2 times in the past month. And dyed it 3 times. Excluding the many many covers of pink hair dye

    Or that I always have my hair tied up. But im just getting worried.

    • ANSWER:
      just like any other product out there some works and some dont. my wife started showing signs of hair loss about a year ago and we tried so many over the counter product and prescribed product but none of them work until we found this one product by accident and in no time after using it her hair started growing back we was amazed and relieved of course lol. the product that saved my wife's hair is none other than provillus just follow this link and give their trial a try and see the improvements. http://mhlnk.com/E1210822

      Hair loss in women is more rare since women have trace amounts of testosterone and even these minute amounts can be converted into hair loss inducing DHT. Commonly, women going through menopause experience hair thinning and loss. It is understood that during menopause, women stop ovulating because of erratic estradiol, testosterone, and estrogen levels. These erratic hormone levels can result in higher levels of testosterone that can then be converted in DHT.
      In both men and women, the role of hormones in causing hair loss is clear. By understanding the causes of it, the solution is clear: stop DHT from being produced and or stop it from acting on hair follicles.

  9. QUESTION:
    Do hair laser treatments help to stop hair loss?
    I have read that hair laser treatments are an effective way to stop hair loss and grow new hair. Does anyone know what the best hair loss laser treatment there is. Do you have to go to a hair loss clinic or can you buy a hair laser to use at home?

    • ANSWER:
      According to the FDA, low level laser therapy is effective in treating male pattern baldness. The Hairmax is the most highly publicized product on the market. However, the price may be inconsistent with their product. My findings suggest that the Hairmax comb may be effective but it would be much more effective if it offered more laser diodes. The Hairmax sold in the US includes a single laser, which is refracted on a plastic mirror to create 8 or 9 beams of light. The laser therapy found most effective includes 650 nw lasers concentrated on the hair loss area for 20 minutes, three times per week. Ideally, a laser device would have multiple lasers to concentrate on one area for 20 minutes. In contrast the Hairmax has one laser refracted and combed over an area for 15 minutes. To you your question of products – consider checking out a website that reviews hair loss treatment products for thinning hair. A comparison site will offer information about thegoods needed to treat your hair loss. Laser therapy may be a good compliment to supplements or vice versa.

  10. QUESTION:
    What are the best HAIR LOSS Treatments?
    So, I'm losing hair on the top front of my head. My mother's side of the family has many bald people. Started at 21 yrs and now at 22 I can see some skin through my hair.

    So, what best to solve this?

    1) Rogaine....but eliminated this option because I hear it knocks off your hair then regrows a "weak" set of hair.

    2)Propecia...I heard it had sexual sideffects so haven't done it but...might try it since it has the least amount of hassle (I am not one to keep a scheduled control of treatment). Now, what bothers me are the "side effects". I hear enlarged breasts (barely)...what else? What are the sexual sideffects?

    Also, I hear from the video that it works mostly on the vertex and the mid section. I have a problem with the top front and a little bit (maybe) of the mid. WILL THIS MEDICINE WORK ON ME? Does hair fall off??

    3) http://www.scalpmed.com/mens/index.html
    How effective? Doesn't knock hair off?

    Which is best for my type of hair loss. I have curly and am hispanic.
    yeah...shaving...before that, I would like to at least try to remedy (even if temporarily only) this condition.

    I know Rogaine WILL knock out your hair before you grow any new one...so I've ruled it out totally.

    I wanted to know if Propecia or that other product (the one linked to) did this.

    Also, how long do these treatments work for? I hear that Rogaine sometimes stops working after 2 - 3 years. Do these other products stop working after a while (sometimes)?

    Any products that work for hair loss (in the top front and mid section) ?...even if I didn't mention it?

    Once I'm using one of hte products...can I switch to another product?

    So, I won't shave (at least, not until the summer).
    I won't get surgury (too expensive)..

    THANKS FOR ANY HELP IN ADVANCE

    • ANSWER:
      Many of us suffer from these ailments due to our modern lifestyle and diet. Ayurveda can be very beneficial in treating these conditions as it investigates the root cause of the problem.
      -Intake of too many chemical medicines, low blood circulation, anemia, general weakness after disease, stress, anxiety, and mental tension are also prime causes of hair loss.
      -Chronic diseases like typhoid fever, presence of dandruff or lice and hormonal imbalance also cause hair loss

      DIET:The diet should contain more green leafy vegetables, salads, milk, fruits and sprouts. Take more proteins, milk, buttermilk, yeast, wheat germ, soybean and vitamin

      Eat a handful of white sesame seeds every morning. One handful of these small seeds contains about 1,200 mg. of calcium and magnesium.

      A mixture of lettuce and spinach juice is good to drink to induce hair growth. The juice of alfalfa mixed with that of carrot, and lettuce juice is also good to take.

      MASSAGE:Daily application of coconut oil mixed with lime juice on the hair is also beneficial. Applying juice of green coriander leaves on the head is also good.

      A paste of licorice made by grinding it in milk can be applied in the bald patches. It induces hair growth. A paste of seeds of lemon and black pepper may also be applied on the bald patches.

      Always use a natural shampoo or soap to clean the hair. As most soaps and shampoos have chemicals, they might be the cause of your problem. Usually the chemicals have a heating effect which causes hair loss..embilica officinalis,Acacia concinna) are very commonly used in India for washing the hair.

  12. QUESTION:
    Could too many hair loss treatments harm the hair?
    For instance, if I use Rogaine, alternate two hair growth shampoos, take a vitamin, and use a special comb, would all of those things together potentially cause hair loss as opposed to gain, or would they work against each other at all?

    • ANSWER:
      I beg to differ about the hair growth/hair loss shampoos. I see no reason to stop alternating the shampoos, especially if it something like Nizoral/Nioxin or Nizoral/Revita. I think the 4 things you have listed in your question are a perfect combination. The only other thing you are missing is Finasteride (prescription med), but not everyone is comfortable taking it.

  15. QUESTION:
    Are there any internet polls or the like that survey the public on the effectiveness of hair loss treatments?
    (excluding minoxidil and finasteride) This could save some time and money (if they are independent polls done in good faith).

    • ANSWER:
      That could save consumers couple of billion dollars if they were done in good faith. But they usually are sponsored. You can find consumer reviews (they are often fake) on various websites – some are selling these products and some are not: www.folica.com/hairloss.htm www.rateitall.com www.nutritionaltree.com/reviews/beauty/hair-loss/default.aspx www.greyhairloss.com/blog/home.html www.amazon.com
      You need to do your own research. There is not a single platform where you could find a clear answer. How could Helsinki formulae and their likes earn their money then? I only remember one hair loss product, besides rogaine and propecia, that did a fair consumer survey – revivogen and I was astonished to see them publish its results. Numerous hair loss forums are another good source of the information you are looking for.

    What are some Hair Loss Treatments?
    My mom has been losing hair, and she is in her late 40's. She's tried not washing her hair with shampoo for about two weeks and that hasn't worked. Are there any home treatments, vitamins, or anything else for her to stop losing hair, it's been going on for a couple of months. It was kind of sudden. I don't think hair transplants is the solutions. I really want to help her, it has been brining her down. She eats well, exercises daily, a little stressed. Please help, thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Diets rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B, silica, calcium, and iron help to reduce or prevent hair loss.

      For women, hair loss usually begins at menopause. Although hair loss in females normally occurs after the age of 50 or later when it does not follow events like pregnancy, chronic illness, crash diets, and stress among others, there have been rare cases reported in which hair loss affects women as young as 15 or 16. Ultimately, though, the balding process and rate vary from person to person. Whether it is slow or rapid, the individual would usually notice the first signs of hair loss. Thinning hair on the top and sides of the scalp is the most prevalent and immediately noticeable symptom.

      Factors such as a person’s activities, diet, medications, natural hormones, pregnancy and childbirth, use of birth control pills, improper hair care and certain diseases can also contribute to hair loss. The extent to which these factors affect an individual varies from one person to the next. While chemical treatments, pollution, hair-styling products and blow-drying have not been found to directly cause hair loss, they can dry and weaken hair, increasing breakage and perpetuating hair loss. A lack of good blood circulation to the scalp may also contribute to hair loss. When the hair root is well supplied with blood it is stronger and less susceptible to the shrinking effects caused by hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone). When not, the roots and follicles can weaken and eventually lead to hair falling out.

      However, to precisely pinpoint the source of the hair loss, your mom should consult a medical professional, like those at Bosley Medical. These physicians are hair loss experts who can diagnose the specific cause of your case & recommend appropriate treatment options. The consults at Bosley Medical are conducted free of charge so at the very least you receive the information your mom needs to move forward in addressing her problem.

    What are good anti hair loss treatment products for african hair?
    I have relaxed hair that used to be long, healthy and strong. Since I've recovered from thyroid disease, my hair's been thinning and falling, not too drastically but it's growing super slowly. I eat healthy, drink lots of water and stopped wearing extensions. What are good hair treatment for hair loss? I heard René Furterer bulbs were good but do you have good suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Most hair loss treatments can be brought over the counter. Some of them can be very expensive. But you can save a lot of money by considering natural hair loss treatments over these costly remedies. While there is no sure fire way of getting all your hair back, there are ways of stopping the balding process and regaining some of your hair naturally. Consider these natural hair loss treatments before buying those expensive medications.

      Onion bulbs - With onion bulbs, there is no need to hunt down exotic ingredients for healthier hair and scalp. This can be found in most kitchens and can help with hair loss problems. When using onions for hair loss treatments, simply rub the juice directly to the hair and let sit for up to 1 hour. This will help in boosting hair growth as well as making hair strands stronger.

      Cayenne Pepper - Applying cayenne pepper to the scalp stimulates hair follicles and blood circulation. You can make cayenne pepper paste by mixing it with some water. Apply to your hair directly and let sit for 30 minutes. This will help in hair re-growth.

      Soy - Soy is a good source of isoflavone which are said to have anti-oxidant properties similar to Vitamin E. The use of soy for hair treatments averts hair loss.

      Jojoba Oil - Jojoba oil cleanses the scalp and helps stop the production of sebum. Too much sebum in the scalp leads to slow hair growth. It also contains anti-oxidants which prevents hair damage, rejuvenates and makes the scalp healthy. This is one of the most commonly used hair loss treatment ingredient.

      Pumpkin Seed - Lower DHT levels in the body naturally with pumpkin seed. These contain natural oils that stop hair thinning. They work by producing delta-7-sterine which inhibits DHT levels.

      Ginko Bilboa - Ginko Bilboa is an ancient Chinese remedy that spans generations. It is primarily used to regulate blood circulation. It is especially beneficial to the scalp as increased blood flow will help in hair re-growth and help maintain a healthy head of hair.

  21. QUESTION:
    hair loss??!?
    for about 4 months now alot more hair have been falling out i thought it was because i straightened my hair every day but i havent straightened it or 6 weeks now and its still falling out my mum said its just natural i can see short hairs but i dont no it thats new hair or where my hair has broken. when i comb my hair i loss like 30 hairs and in the shower about 20 i want it to stop its annoying having hair all over my clothes im think about getting a hair mask deep conditioner will that make a difference?
    how can i stop my hair falling out?
    but my frnd suggest me this site http://www.metrovillez.com/hair-loss-treatment.html
    Does any one try this?

    • ANSWER:
      Straightening hair can cause hair loss, but it is good that you've stopped; if this was the cause, you should see positive results soon. If you're noticing about 50 hairs then this sounds normal to me. I have actually experienced hair loss and I was losing a lot more than that! I saw a trichologist who has recitified (hopefully for good!) the problem. She said that hair loss of about 70 hairs a day is normal. Although alot of websites say that between 100-150 a day is normal.

      Hopefully your hair is fine but seeing a trichologist might put your mind at ease, and if there is a problem then it's better to start with solutions right away. Just make sure you see a respected trichologist and don't end up spending loads on treatments that might not even work.
      Good luck and try not to worry, hair loss won't be as noticable as you think!

  22. QUESTION:
    Which is the best dietary supplement or vitamin known for severe women hair loss?
    I am very young, not even 18, and i've already tried many hair loss treatments without result.. Can you recommend any?

    • ANSWER:
      Several reasons can cause excessive hair lose. A severe illness or major surgery, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal problems, your current medicine intakes, certain hair treatments that use chemical dyes, bleaches, and straightening or curling agent, or autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks hair follicles causing hair on the head to fall out, etc.

      Supplements recommendations for hair lose:

      B vitamins are important for the health and growth of the hair,especially B6, biotin, folic acid, B5 (pantothenic acid and B3 (niacin)
      http://www.marketamerica.com/lcbeauty/index.cfm?action=shopping.wpGoShopProducts&prodID=2241

      For Vitamin B complex, I would recommend Isotonix line when available because Isotonix line it's the only oral supplements in the market with isotonic capability when mixing with certain amount of water. Any food or pills taken orally must be digested within our stomach and transported in an isotonic state before our body can absorb its nutrients, this process can take from 40 minutes to 4 hours. Remember our stomach is very high acidic, which means many nutritional values are lost during digestion.

      This means that when we drink a supplement that’s isotonic, our stomach does not need to digest it, so that it can enter our small intestines for absorption within minutes. With Isotonix products, little nutritive value is lost, making the absorption of nutrients highly efficient while delivering maximum results.

      Another supplement I would recommend is to increase omega-3 fatty acids in your diet.
      Omega 3 provide anti-inflammatory property and it’s very important for healthy hair growth.

      I would recommend Heart Health™ Essential Omega III Fish Oil
      http://www.marketamerica.com/lcbeauty/index.cfm?action=shopping.wpGoShopProducts&prodID=2247

      When shopping for fish oil in the market, always look at its EPA and DHA values, because these are the omega 3 readily benefit for human body. Also pay attention to the guarantee of free hard metal contamination.

      Heart Health™ Essential Omega III Fish Oil provides three grams of EPA and DHA, which studies reveal to be the most efficient amount for optimal health and has been tested twice to ensure free of heavy metals.

      In additions, decrease your animal protein intake and try to replace with plant protein when possible. Excessive animal proteins might cause inflammation in your body, encourage hair lose.

      Eat more fruits and vegetables regularly.

      Handle your hair gently, allowing it to air-dry whenever possible and avoid hair product that contain chemical ingredients.

      If you are looking for a gentle shampoo without harsh chemicals and nature base ingredients, try Royal Spa Ultra III Shampoo. This salon formula botanical shampoo, conditioner and finishing rinse in one for dry and chemically treated hair. It features a delicate, moisturizing blend of botanical extracts of evening primrose, heather, jasmine, and orchid to quench dry hair and scalp.

  23. QUESTION:
    Can I apply hair spa solutions on my hair after a cellphone treatment??cellophane treatment versus hair loss?
    I'm planning to have a cellophane treatment for my hair but I'm currently having problems with falling hair. It's not due to breakage of hair strands. Strands of hair tend to fall from the roots..Can cellphane treatments trigger a more severe hair loss?? Is it okay for me to undergo such hair treatment? All answers are fully appreaciated!

    If it's okay to have the treatment, can i still use hair spa solutions like every other month or so? My cousin and I plans to hair spa each others hair for X-mas bonding sessions(",). What will be the possible effects if i do so??

  24. QUESTION:
    Can I use Hair Loss treatments on my hair?
    Hi :)
    I am 17 years old.
    I do not have any form of hair loss, as in- I'm not balding or anything like how you see in the picture examples in hair loss commercials.
    However, my hair did break off though at the top, due to mistreating my hair, getting relaxers and not keeping up with them, constant flat ironing, etc.
    So I was wondering, would it be safe to use hair loss treatments (like the stuff that older men/women use on their hair when they're getting hair loss due to aging)
    could that work on just helping speed up the growth in my hair? I hope this makes sense,

    i have a friend who has hair that goes about an inch passed her belly button, and after she got out of the shower i saw her squirt some hair loss product for men in her hair, and her hair looks perfectly healthy, smooth, and extremely long and thick.
    so i was wondering if this could be something i could try as well?
    i'm hoping using hair loss product on my hair at my age doesn't cause more damage or hair loss,
    but i was wondering is it a possibility to use on hair not for hair loss problems, but simply for hair growth? thank you for your time.

    • ANSWER:
      Heredity, hormones, stress, diet, illness, poor hair care – all are factors in hair loss.

      Stress, diet and illness are more temporary conditions and usually the hair loss is reversed when the anxiety-producing conditions dissipate, when the diet is improved, when hair care improves and when an illness is cured or gotten under control.

      Heredity and hormones are different matters, however. Heredity is an irreversible condition. You are a product of your parents, and hair loss is often inherited. Hormones are tricky, hidden things, however, and they have different effects on an individual basis.

      In a male, testosterone abides abundantly. There are also enzymes working on testosterone which product a substance called DHT. DHT is now known to circulate in the blood and cause other conditions, one of which is the shrinking of hair follicles. When hair follicles shrink enough, they are unable to produce and push a new hair through. As old hair dies, it is then not replaced.

      In women, hormonal imbalances can also cause hair loss. Pregnancy, childbirth and menopause all cause significant hormonal change and imbalances with both physical and mental effects. These changes can also cause hair loss, both temporary and permanent.

      Hair loss and re-growth products have been around for centuries. In ancient times, a variety of herbal and oil-based remedies were concocted and used by Egyptians, Aztecs, Mayans, and American Indians, all with some degree of effectiveness for some people. Modern medical research has focused on ways to re-open and stimulate “dead” hair follicles, so that hair growth can re-occur naturally, as well as keep the healthy follicles healthy. Thus, a number of products have become available, both by prescription and over-the-counter. They are advertised on radio and television and all over the Internet. One need only do a “google” search on hair loss, and there are literally thousands of sites and products for investigation.

      One ingredient in many hair loss products is minoxidil. Research studies have shown that in about 80% of the participants, products containing this ingredient are effective in slowing hair loss and, in some, causing re-growth to occur.

      Probably the most well known is Rogaine, available at any drug store, in varieties for both men and women. Most scientifically-produced products do have separate products for males and females, because, of course, hormones in each are different and of different levels.

      An additional product containing minoxidil is Provillus, and, again, studies have shown it to be effective. The difference between Provillus and other similar products is that the makes have added Azelaic Acid, an additional ingredient which appears to enhance the follicle repair in both men and women. Provillus has been the subject of many studies, just as the other products, and level of effectiveness may be higher.

      Provillus is available for both men and women, and the treatment is a combination of a topical liquid applied to the balding areas, as well as a pill or capsule to be taken in conjunction with the liquid. The critical key to effectiveness, according to its makers, is the addition of the azelaic acid, however, the correct amount of this acid is most important piece of this treatment.

      As with most hair loss products, the makers recommend patience. It may take from 3-6 months for improvement to occur, however, there is a money-back guarantee up to 180 days if one is not satisfied that it is working for him/her.

      Medical research is far from finished in its exploration of products which will stop hair loss and promote re-growth of “permanent” loss. As this research continues, existing producers will undoubtedly alter their products accordingly.

      Fortunately, a lot of money is being poured into the research, so hair loss sufferers, take heart!

  25. QUESTION:
    Natural hair loss treatments?
    Yeah it looks like rodaine is a topical vasodilator and basically allows more blood to flow to the hair roots. Problem is that when i use it i get every side effect in the books and honestly I'd rather be bald.
    I know there are a lot of natural vasodilators but which ones are really potent. Also open to other natural topical treatments

    • ANSWER:
      Unlike that other poster, I'm not a rep of any website. My brother used rogaine and it messed up his heart rhythem so please don't use that. Do you have any thyroid issues? That can cause hair loss. So can aspartame. I used to drink diet sodas and my hair was falling out. My nurse practitioner told me to quit doing that and a whole lot of things got better. Aspartame is a poison no matter what the mainstream health models tell you. A website that I won't go without is www.earthclinic.com go there and click on ailments, then click on H, scroll down and there's hair loss.
      http://www.earthclinic.com/CURES/hair_loss.html that is the link for the exact page you want. I think Ted's remedies are the best for other things I've tried. I had non-specific colitis (sort of like Crohn's disease) and recurrent pancreatitis and cured both from suggestions on that site. My hubby got off his blood pressure meds and has healthy bp now from stuff on that site as well. Go with an open mind, especially if you've always relied heavily on western medicine. We are the healthiest we've ever been from using natural cures. I hope it works for you and good luck. There's a LOT of good info about hair loss and there's nothing too weird in my opinion.

    • ANSWER:
      You really need to ascertain what type of hair loss you have. Is it male pattern baldness or one of the other alopecias. If you are balding in a male pattern baldness type of way then it is doubtful that any of what you mention will have any real effect as blood flow is not majorly implicated as an underlying cause. Plus you really should not use those unless approved by a medical doctor, especially since you say you have had many side effects. DHT (a testosterone metabolite) and it's enzyme responsible for its production 5-alpha reductase are implicated in male pattern baldness more so. In which case you could try massaging pumpkin seed oil (an inhibitor of these) into your scalp either neat or diluted in a little olive oil or jojoba oil.

      Perhaps more to the point, accept balding gracefully, as it is quite natural. You could always shave your head or get a very short hair cut as it is trendy to do so.

      Thanks..

  27. QUESTION:
    Does hair loss shampoo make your hair thicker and how does it work?
    My hair has gotten so thin lately and i usually have really thick hair. i'm only 15 and was wondering if there is any cheap hair loss treatments i can afford? I'm from the UK btw

    • ANSWER:
      Supplement your diet with biotin capsules. That would help and you can take a lot of it without getting sick or overdosing. I've known people who have had success in reversing thinning hair with biotin supplementation.

      Also, if you aren't doing so already, start taking a green powder supplement daily. VerdiSyn is hard to beat for this. Perfect Food by Garden of Life is another good green powder. A tablespoon of a green powder a day in water or juice (preferably the former, without sugar) will ensure that you are getting all the B-Vitamins that you need in your diet, as well as some essential enzymes and minerals as well.

      By the way, you are right to avoid meat as much as possible and to only eat organic meat once in a while (if at all). The antibiotics, hormones, and other additives injected in regular meat plays havoc on the body, and makes one fat from the hormones, among other things. Not to mention the fact that meat is also hard to break down and often goes undigested for long periods of time, especially among big meat eaters. Pork, pork sausage, and ham should especially be avoided completely, as these are very hard to digest - not even taking into account all the other problems, like the nitrates and nitrites added.

    I want to know, because of my age and the fact that my hair loss is only very mild at this point, would treatments such as Herbal-H http://www.herbal-h.com/ and HairMax Lasercomb http://www.hairmax.com/ be more effective at preventing any further loss, along with possible regrowth?

    I've been worrying about this for ages and I really want to stop it as it is such a drain on my self confidence. Help, anyone?
    That didn't really answer the question, I want to know if because I've caught onto it fairly early there's a better chance of stopping and reversing it. I'm not too keen on Propecia, it sounds like there's too many risky side effects to it.

    • ANSWER:
      Definitely stop taking the birth control pills. Birth control pills are not good for you in general.
      Go to your gynecologist, or whoever prescribed you the birth control, and tell the doctor about your problem. They'll either give you a prescription to help with the hair loss or refer you to another doctor who can.

    Hair loss treatments question?
    I'm 18 and have had my hair thinning for about 3 years and it appears to have quickened over the last year/6 months...
    I've researched and have been using;
    Green tea supplements (along with drinking green tea),
    Ginkgo Biloba (which i have been using for about 4 years anyway).

    I'll admit i dont lead the healthiest of lifestyles but i do some weight training atleast once a week and have cut out crisps, chocolate and alot of fatty foods (although not completely).

    I have recently been looking into treatments such as Procerine and couldnt find any bad review, then stumbled upon a site where the admin told a member that Procerin (along with alot of other treatments) will only work as long as you use it, when you stop all the 'regrown' hair will simply fall out asif it had never been there...

    I'd like to know if there are any other treatments i can try,
    I have recently started taking Saw Palmetto but dont think that it is having much of an affect if any...

    Are there any other natural/herbal treaments out there that i can try?
    And are there any medical tablets etc that will not cause the hair to fall out after you stop using them?

    • ANSWER:
      as we know - hair loss can be caused by many different reasons! There are many causes of loss of hair such as stress, poor nutrition ,medications, thyroid dysfunctions, illness, fungal infections ,hormonal problems, to mention a few.

      year ago my husband suffered very much from dandruff and hair loss too and he started trying everything you can imagine to stop his hair loss. the things that really worked for him was:

      1) Vitamin A - an anti-oxidant which promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp;

      2) Vitamin E stimulates circulation. Good blood circulation in the scalp is important in keeping hair follicles productive. The 'B' vitamins contribute to melanin, which gives hair its healthy color and also stimulates blood circulation;

      3) massage is also beneficial. Massage stimulates circulation. As already noted, good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Experts suggest a few minutes of daily head massage by hand. Circulation through massage may be improved by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base with massage;

      4) Try rubbing your scalp with garlic juice, Onion Juice or Ginger Juice (you can either of one out of three, Do not mix any of two or three);

      5) also he used herbal treatment - TrichoZed and Provilluss (do not use Rogaine - it will not work!)

      Those are a good products that helps prevent hair loss and contains Biotin and the clinically tested ingredients approved by the FDA to help re-grow your hair.! I think it is very important!

      It worked and still works for him!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry TrichoZed and Provillus but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here

      http://www.trichozed.info/ingredients.php

      (TrichoZed™ will produce noticeable hair growth in 30 to 45 days. A consistent use of TrichoZed™ ensures permanent results within 6 months. Further use shall maintain optimal health of your hair.)

      and here

      http://www.provillus.com/?aid=221781

      (Provillus™ will produce noticeable hair growth in 40. A consistent use of TrichoZed™ ensures permanent results within ~5 months.)

      It enhances hair growth by blocking DHT (Dihydrotestostrone) - a major cause of hair loss!

      Also Informative video about Provillus - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ydvCHhbRkk

      good luck!

  38. QUESTION:
    Is there any stem cell treatment for hair loss?
    Minoxidil, Fenisteride, Ketokonazole, steroids -- these are medicines used in hair loss treatment. Minoxidil works temporarily Other drugs also cause adverse reaction in the body. And big promises announced by other herbal or something else formulas dont really work. Hair transplant requires surgery. Is there any other safe but sure methods for raising hair? Is stem cell treatment available now for hair loss?

    • ANSWER:
      Follicle hair transplant therapy is still in a stage of research and testing, and so is not yet available as an alternative to conventional hair transplants.

      However, this treatment (which is also known as follicular cell implantation) will involve the following procedure - A scalp biopsy is first taken to obtain a few healthy hair follicles. (This uses a local anaesthetic and takes about 30 minutes).

      The extracted follicles are then dissected to obtain the papilla, each of which contains between 200 and 400 dermal papilla cells (DPC's).

      Hi,

      Hair loss is a very common problem among people. In most cases abnormal loosing of hair is a sign of health problems. What is abnormal loosing of hair? Do not panic if you loose from 50 to 100 hair per day – this is normal. If you clearly lose more or you see hairless spots on your head – see your doctor.

      So 50-100 strands of hair loss is totally normal and in limits, but if you still want to have stronger hair against hair loss, i advice you to check the following web page, where you can find recent best 10 shampoos that help you to recover from your hair loss problem and they are really great. The page ALSO has information about the possible reasons of hair loss.

    I hate the haircut that I have, and I was wondering if using a treatment for hair LOSS could help my hair to grow longer. Would that work?

    • ANSWER:
      Nope. It'll stimulate your follicles. And haircuts don't kill follicles. Chances are, they're working. They're just not working fast enough. NOTHING will help your hair grow faster. Taking care of it by using professional products, drinking lots of water, and taking vitamins will help it to break off less.. but NOTHINGGGGG will make it grow faster.

    • ANSWER:
      There's only two drugs clinically tested and FDA approved : Minoxidil (Rogaine and other brands) and Propecia (Proscar, Finasteride, etc.), there are some interesting drugs too like Dutasteride or Follica but there aren't enough studies yet.

      http://www.hairlossline.com/articles/male-hair-loss-treatment-what-options-do-you-have.html

      If you're into natural stuff, the only ones that might be helpful are Saw Palmeto (there are capsules for sale in natural shops) because it contains anti androgens similar to the ones found on Propecia, or the herb Shen Min.

  47. QUESTION:
    What can I do about my hair loss?
    I'm a 19 year old male and I have really thin hair. Can you recommend some proven natural hair loss treatments?

    • ANSWER:
      Theres two things you can take. Either Rogaine or Propecia. Rogain rarely regrows hair but may stop you from losing it. Propecia can help you regrow hair but it takes a really long time (as does rogain) and has a couple side affects. Best thing you can do is go the natural way and try to stop hair loss. Take Vitamin B supplement, Multivitamin, get exercise, avoid stress and check with your doctor to see if theres an underlying medical condition. Its also a medical question so definitely ask him about it, he can make the decision whether to prescribe Propecia as well.

    • ANSWER:
      there are completely NO CURE for hair loss till today.

      hair lose is due to environmental influences, inappropriate consumption which led to lack of certain nutrition/vitamins, mood(stress) and genes.

      all kind of drugs, medications and remedies available may only prevent and to contain, mostly mythical and even there is result, it will not last long.

      speak to a nutritionist, smoking can cause hair lose and moderate drinking is fine. physical exercises are great + personal hygiene too.

      after all, hair will not be the main important in a man, what's more valuable are self esteem, charisma and etiquette.
      look around, some young men even famous celebrities look great with no hairs.

  50. QUESTION:
    What kind of doctor do you see for hair loss treatments?
    My husband's hair is thinning a bit on top. He's 32, and his father was already half bald by his age, so although he's held onto his hair quite a bit longer it's a genetic inevitability he will eventually lose it. We're just hoping to slow down the process, and maybe see some regrowth in the thinning area. What kind of doctor does he need to see to address this issue?

    Side note: He's seeing a dermatologist soon for his seborrheic dermatitis, should he bring up the hair thinning thing with her? He's seeing a medical dermatologist, not a cosmetic dermatologist if that makes a difference.

    • ANSWER:
      A medical Dermatologist and a cosmetic Dermatology should have the same credentials, though the cosmetic approach may advertise more hair-growing products for sale.

      I am 76, and I take medication for my Prostate that removes any sex- drive from my body. The medicine is named Finasteride(generic)and is the ingredient in the popular hair-growth, OTC- foam, but the potency is stronger. I began growing some new hair two years ago after using Finasteride. Some guys have used Minoxidil(spelling)and Finasteride together with fair results. Most guys choose not to use Finasteride because of loss sex-drive. Sebum is the oily substance on men's forehead and scalp that clogs the hair follicles and reduce hair growth.

      It appears from your query that your husband may have inherited male-pattern baldness from a parent or grandparent.

      I have a thinning spot on my crown, and when I wash my hair, the hair stands up. Years ago, I discovered a hair product( in colors)that adheres to surrounding hairs to cover thin hair(Toppik). The same company sells a product named Fullmore(in colors) that spray on thinning hair spots like mine. Go to www.toppik.com and www.fullmore.com.
