Does Nizoral Stop Hair Loss

There's been lots of research showing that biotin improves hair growth. Biotin, or Vitamin B7, occurs frequently in the body and is produced by bacteria in the intestines. The link between biotin and hair growth has been proved and clear. Further, a scarcity of biotin has been immediately demonstrated to lead to baldness. As a consequence, there are a considerable number of products on the market geared toward hair loss that contain biotin. However , a number of these products are a lot better and better than others.

Hair loss is a standard problem and it's one that both men and women alike can feel a little embarrassed about and seek to fix. For that reason, the market is chock-full of every type of hair growth product imaginable. Biotin shampoos particularly are the latest craze. The labels of many of those shampoos list the wonderful effects of biotin on the hair to help drum up sales. Many folks are casually aware of this link and will purchase these shampoos rashly. Likewise, there are an increasing number of biotin conditioners available. Lots of the shampoos and conditioners claim to work in association with one another and are sold together, frequently scarce cost. You may also buy biotin lotions and creams that may be rubbed into the scalp which claim to help with hair loss.

All this is great in theory, but does it truly work? Unfortunately, the answer's no. Biotin shampoos and conditioners are nothing more than marketing hype. Does biotin help folk suffering from hair loss? Yes. But it only has this effect when taken internally. Washing your hair with it or rubbing it onto your head will do absolutely zip because biotin cannot be soaked up through the skin. These expensive shampoos and conditioners won't truly hurt you, but they'll leave you with a load less spending money.

Again, biotin truly does help hair when taken internally. Do not forget that your body naturally produces some biotin. If you're losing hair, you could need more. The best source of biotin is food. Biotin can be found in foods like yeast, liver, eggs, and dairy foods. However folk who don't have a well-rounded diet regularly opt to beef up with biotin vitamins. Most drug store shelves are stocked with B-complex vitamins. B vitamins work well when taken together, but if you already get too much of the other B vitamins, you can buy biotin on its own in pill form. With these vitamins, more is not better; the proper daily amount on the label should be plenty to have an impact on your hair.

  2. QUESTION:
    Ovarian cyst and excessive hair loss?
    I've been losing a lot of hair for the past year--literally half of my hair is lost. I found out 3 mths ago that I have an ovarian cyst. My blood results are normal now, though they were a little abnormal at first.About 2 weeks after the 1st test and the blood results magically became normal. Do cysts go away? Does anyone know how and/or when the hair loss will stop? It's totally depressing me, especially since I've been to the dermatologist and he just recommended Lidex and Nizoral shampoo, which did not help at all. I have a large amount of hair falling every single day, but when I wash my hair (about 2-3 times a week) double the amount comes out and even more comes out after I comb my hair after washing it. I don't know how much more positive I could stay. I keep reassuring myself that it will stop soon, but I'm just afraid of going bald.Should I get retested?Periods are basically normal now .I have gained 25lbs in abt 1 yr, maybe due to the cyst. Please help if u can.

    • ANSWER:
      Do you have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)? If so, hair loss is common with this disease (as well as hair growth on other areas of your body). Weight gain, particularly around the midsection, is also a symptom of PCOS. If you have PCOS you should be getting treated, usually with birth control pills taken continuously - over time this usually helps with hair loss (and excessive hair in other places). I've heard that Yaz, taken continuously is great for those with PCOS. You should definitely talk to your doctor about this. You don't want to talk to the dermatologist about PCOS, you need to talk to your gynecologist or primary care physician.

  3. QUESTION:
    Strange hair loss problem?
    Hello,
    First I'd like to introduce myself:
    -I'm a male, 18 years old, first year in University

    For the past 6 months, I've noticed hair loss from my head. It all started when I took a vacation back to my home country in South Asia (I'm not going to specifically identify). Anyways, I started getting terrible dandruff and extreme itchy scalp. I scratched vigorously and my hair started to fall. The water there was also very bad and I am used to Great Lakes water. Anyways, since then I've lost significant amount of hair, especially in past few months. I have the dandruff under control now and I try my best to take care of my hair (i used nizoral, head&shoulders).. I've stopped using products and now put coconut, olive oil and nothing works.. I'm loosing more than 500 hairs a day.. Its embarrassing, sitting at a table working and you notice random hair fall.... HAIR EVERYWHERE :(
    its actually depressing
    My family DOES have pattern hair loss, my dad is bald (however, he started balding around 30).. My older brother is also loosing hair...
    What is the cause of this problem, the dermatologist isn't helping much, he is recommending Rogaine and other drugs which I refuse to take due to side-effects and my age. I do not trust them...
    I'm planning on seeing another doctor but until then what should i do?
    my hairline is also receding..
    plus hair at back and sides is significantly longer then front..

    • ANSWER:
      You've already stated: my family DOES have a pattern hair loss, dad is bald, brother loosing hair . . . .

      I see people in India have the same problem, when you watch the news, many of them are balding or have thin hair.

      Let's say it's NOT hereditary, do you guys take supplements? Those have been shown, that even FDA do not approve of them. Supplements, billions are wasted and could hurt your lungs, liver, organs, even hair loss). Many herbals get recalled, if someone complains of getting very sick, and the FDA steps in. They're there to protect the consumers, and they're not making money on it. China, which has repeatedly been caught exporting contaminated products, is a major supplier of raw supplement ingredients. The FDA has yet to inspect a single factory there.

      It takes months even years for whatever allergic reaction you may have gotten. Hair products, beauty products, foods, chemicals, hair dyes, to some even HAVING BABIES (2 that I've responded to), stress, medications with testosterone, certain antidepressants, menopause, & anti-acne could ALL ADD UP to why you have hair loss.

      When your hair is crying for help, that's when it's too late to do anything about it, and hair products or hair loss growth can not reverse the problem. They are all billion dollar business.

      NOW THAT YOU'RE back home, maybe your hair will improve. If not, then it's not something you got from when you visited South Asia. It's found in your home, since your family also have them.
      There are about 7,000 toxic chemicals in our homes, btw. Even the foods we eat are full of toxics.

  4. QUESTION:
    Too much shampoo???????
    hello there-
    i am a 17 year old male. My brother who's 21 has already experience some hair loss. we have different hairlines however. my parents say my hair is pretty thick. I have less hair at the temples now then i used to when i was a kid. (but you wouldnt notice unless i mentioned it) hairstylists say its just that i have a big forehead.
    ive consulted my brother on how to stop future hair loss. he suggested both Nizoral (dandruff shampoo which prevents hairloss) and Jason's Thin to thick shampoo and conditioner. I alternate these everyday. my brother also says to shampoo after cross country because I get sweaty. Ive only done that a few times, as im afraid that it might damage my hair.also, i take a multivitamin, omega 3 fish oil, don't drink pop, drink green tea daily, eat peanut butter everynight... what should I do? i do NOt want to lose my hair.

    • ANSWER:
      How to Prevent Hair Loss

      1) Use proper nutrition. Lack of vitamins, minerals and protein can cause hair loss. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables and consume a balanced diet on a daily basis to prevent premature hair loss.
      2) Deal with stresses in your life. The trauma of stressful situations can cause hair loss. Learn how to use coping strategies to manage and relieve stress.
      3) Loosen up your hair. Hairstyles such as ponytails, braids and artificial hairstyles can cause baldness by the constant pulling and tugging of your hair follicles. Look for more relaxed styles when possible.
      4) Change the method you use to style your hair. Perms and other chemicals can alter the hairs structure and cause breakage and permanent damage. Blow dryers, curling irons and other heating products can cause more damage since they are used more often.
      5) Read prescription medication side effects. Before taking any new medications read the various side effects associated with it. When hair loss is listed ask your doctor about an alternative medicine that could be taken or a way to reduce your chances.
      6) Keep regularly scheduled doctors appointments. Many health conditions can cause changes in hormonal balances. Visiting a doctor can make sure any illnesses and conditions that develop are treated before they cause hair loss.

  5. QUESTION:
    Can someone please help me im losing my hair at age 18 and i have excessive dandruff?
    Im 18 and i recently noticed that i am starting to lose my hair. Not alot but enough for me to tell. Ive had uncontrollable dandruff since i was 12. Ive tried everything for the dandruff like oils, head and shoulders, selsum blue, tgel, nizoral, baby shampoo, soap, vinegar. Literally everything. Can someone help me stop the dandruff and the hair loss? Im too young to lose hair. Oh yea and i talked to my doctor and he said their is nothing he can do. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Anti dandruff shampoos make dandruff worse! They contain countless hair, scalp, face skin and even health harming harsh and toxic ingredients. Confirm with a Google search. Find "Non harmful shampoos, etc" with another search. Some will come up and be expensive or only available on-line so refine search by adding "low cost" & "available in stores". Shop for them at GNC, Trader Joes, Some Walmart Stores, Cost Plus, Wegmans, Earth Fare, natural & health foods stores.

      This is a natural, safe, permanent cure that truly ends dandruff almost straight away and forces new growth. My hair completely regrew where I had a bald spot on crown and elsewhere. Massage scalp thoroughly with olive oil - then brush vigorously using a palm held brush with short natural boar bristles - soft bristled for fine straight hair and stiff bristled for thicker non straight hair- so you really feel it stimulating scalp. You can see them on Amazon. Best to brush 90 /100 strokes each day. Will heal scalp, stop flaking almost immediately and unplug blocked hair ducts that often result in hair loss - they are the painful small itching spots. It's best not to wash off and sleep with it that way. Use an old pillow case to protect pillow. Initially you might get some shedding but brushing makes hair stronger and better anchored and loss will quickly stop. Continue daily brushing
      and see new growth starting. Do not be concerned if brushing uproots new growth as they will re-appear even stronger and will not be uprooted.. I have testimonials from happy users of this cure. One user on Answers has had extensive re-growth in just 6 months on crown and where receding at front. I can send it to you. See my many other answers on hair loss , flaking scalp and dandruff for more detailed information and some feed back from happy users.
      Wish you the best.

  6. QUESTION:
    What is wrong with me ? Im loosing hair and im an 18 year old female.?
    I started losing hair about two months ago. My doctor put me on yaz, a birth control to balance out my hormones and it usually helps with mild hair loss which i had. It was pretty well normal again. Now, a month later, I notice my hair is falling out still. Also, my scalp is very dry, and my face as well. I only wash my hair every other day so i dont dry out my scalp and im using a special shampoo called nizoral twice a week, I stopped blow drying and straightening my hair too, So why is this happening to me? Do i have a disease or something ? I was told it could be stress, but my only stress is about my hair and I'm not stressing that much ! So someone please give me an answer :(
    I also get frequent pounding headaches. Pretty much on a daily basis.

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds like the treatments you are using may be making your hair loss and your health (pounding headaches) even worse. It may help to research the side effects other women are experiencing from the same medication you are using to decide if you want to continue.
      The type of hair loss that causes excessive shedding is called telogen effluvium. It is fairly common and often only lasts for a short period of time before correcting on it's own. Anytime the body experiences a change, disturbance, imbalance or deficiency the hair growth cycle can become disrupted causing an increased amount of hairs to retreat to the resting (telogen) stage where they will then fall out 1-3 months later. Thinking back to the months prior to the shed may provide clues. Common causes include vaccination, flu shot, medication, birth control, change in diet, infection, virus, high fever, stress, exposure to toxins, medical procedure, etc. Often when the body heals or adjust the hair growth cycle is restored naturally. Other times the underlying issue must be determined and addressed. You can learn more about the types and causes of female hair loss at the links below.

  7. 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.

    • ANSWER:


Does Mane And Tail Make Your Hair Grow Faster

As horse owners, we all know the ideal tail. A thick, flowing mass of hair, just touching the ground- it’s the epitome of beauty. But looking at a lovely long tail, and comparing that to the short, thin and frayed tail on your own horse can make the dream of a beautiful tail seem impossible. While genetics and nature play a part in long, healthy tails, there are several steps you can take to encourage your horses tail to grow and look beautiful.

Not all horses are created equal- and neither are all tails. If the genetics of your horse have given him a thin, wispy tail, then you may never reach the ideal in your mind. But every tail can be improved, and whether your aim is the show ring, or just for your own pleasure, careful attention to the tail can help it to be the best it can be.

Tail rubbing is a common occurrence in horses, but it is also extremely destructive to tails. Many a beautiful tail has been completely destroyed by only a few days of vigorous rubbing- and it may take years for the tail to grow back. Tail rubbing first destroys the hairs at the top of the tail, leading to matts in the tail, broken hair strands and even bald spots.

The most common cause of tail rubbing is a parasite infection, usually pinworms. These microscopic parasites lay eggs at the horses tail area around the anus. These eggs cause discomfort and itching, and lead the horse to try and relive the sensation by rubbing on anything that might be available- the walls of a stall, fence posts, feed buckets, etc. Deworming will kill the pinworms, and the rubbing should stop.

If parasites have been ruled out as a cause of rubbing, other causes should be examined. A dirty udder or sheath may be itchy for the horse, causing them to seek out a way to reach the itch. Washing the udder or sheath regularly can help to relieve the itch, and prevent future episodes of rubbing. The skin of the dock of the tail can be dry, causing dandruff and irritation. Washing the tail in a dandruff shampoo, or using moisturizing conditioners, can help relieve the itching. The tail should also be carefully inspected for any other signs of cuts, sores or skin irritations- if found, these should be treated as directed by your veterinarian.

Once tail rubbing has been eliminated as an issue, how do you get that tail to grow? First and foremost, STOP BRUSHING THAT TAIL! Ever wonder how horses in the wild often have great thick, long tails? It’s because they aren’t brushed. Constant brushing loosens the hair, and each brush stroke may pluck out a few hairs. Reduce your brushing sessions to once a week, at most. When you do brush, use a paddle type brush instead of a comb, as they are more aggressive, and pull out more hairs. Use of a detangler will also help to minimize matts and snarls, and prevent them from forming.

At least once a month, thoroughly wash and condition your horses tail. Although more expensive, horse-specific shampoos and conditioners should be used, as human products tend to dry out the tail too much, leading to hair breakage. Leave in conditioners such as Mane and Tail can help to provide detangling action, as well as providing long-term protection to the hair.

After washing and conditioning, allow the tail to dry completely before brushing it through. Wet hair is more fragile, and is more likely to break while being brushed. When brushing, start at the bottom of the tail and work up, working on small sections at a time until the entire tail is detangled and smooth.

Just as in human hair, horses get split ends at the bottom of their tail, and split ends can cause hair breakage and damage. Cutting the very ends of the tail off on a regular basis will remove the split ends, and strengthen the rest of the tail. Not much has to be taken off- often just a ½” or less will remove most of the split ends, and leave the tail with a neater, more kept look.

Finally, if a long, thick tail is your goal, the tail bag may become your best friend. Usually made of lycra or cotton, tail bags cover the tail and tie just below the bone of the tail, protecting it from pulling, breakage, sun damage and tangles. Although not the most popular of accessories in some riding circles, any snarky comments you may receive as a result of the tail bag will instantly be silenced when your friends see the improved quality of your horses tail.

To put in a tail bag, braid the washed and conditioned dry tail, and secure the braid with an elastic band. Pull the tail bag over the tail, and take the loop or ties, and insert them through one of the plaits below the tailbone. NEVER tie a tail bag around or near the tailbone- it can cause a loss of circulation, and a variety of severe problems.

Using a tail bag can significantly improve the quality of your horses tail, as well as help it to grow more quickly. Use of hair-growth stimulators, such as Eqyss Mega Tek, can be especially helpful in bagged tails, as will remain in place and undisturbed until washed out.

If your horse has an especially thin or slow growing tail, a vitamin supplement may be in order to help the tail receive the nutrients it needs for optimal growth. Skin and Coat conditioners, as well as hoof supplements (hair is made from the same basic material as hooves) can be extremely helpful in getting a stubborn tail to grow.

It takes approximately seven years for a hair at the top of your horses tail to grow down to the level of their fetlocks. Your horses tail won’t grow overnight, and you might not notice a difference in quality or thickness for some time. But with careful attention, and just a bit of patience, you can help your horses tail achieve its fullest potential.

    does Mane & Tail or any shampoo make your hair grow faster/thicker?
    can Mane & Tail make your hair grow faster and thicker? it seems unlikely that a shampoo can make your hair grow faster and thicker than usual, but my friend swears it works.

    • ANSWER:
      Not really. Nothing will speed up the natural rate of hair growth, but I've known people who have used M&T over the years and loved it because it made their hair soft and shiny and (they claimed) healthier.

      I tried it many years ago myself, as I have very fine hair, and it just weighed it down and made my hair heavy and lifeless. I use Redken products now, and they work better than anything ever has for me.

    • ANSWER:
      No... hair is a waste product of the body(just like shin and nails) so any external things doesn't effect what your body produces... take a good multi vitamin is the best thing... best investment as far as your total appearance... really!!!

      You can change some of your hair care habits that would discourage breakage and damage which is the biggest culprit in hair loss... Things such as back off using iron and dryer... protect hair from wind, sun, tanning beds and chlorine from pools... use a gentle shampoo and conditioner to detangle and there are some out there with uva/uvn protection built in.

The average growth is 1/2 inch per month, Whats the growth rate for Mane N Tail per Month??? *I am eager for any answers* Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      It doesn't really, it's no different from any other shampoos really (check the ingredients and you'll see what I mean), although a lot of people report much nicer hair form using it there is nothing about it to help your hair grow - plus there is no growth rate as everyone's hair grows at different lengths, also other factors can contribute to hair growth from what time of the year it is, what stage your hair is in, how you treat your hair, all the way down to what you eat and how happy your life is.

      I'm going to give you a big long answer, I gave it as an answer to someone else asking how to make their hair grow, it's basically a load of tips to help your hair grow...

      Hair grows from folicles, as new hair cells are made old ones are pushed out to the surface of the skin where they harden and die creating hair, so as hair is dead hair treatments effect on growth and hair quality are limited. You need good overall health to really improve hair health and increase growth, but healthy hair and scalp will also improve growth as if hair is damaged this causes it to break which of course stops it from growing any longer - split ends are the enemy, damage can travel up the hair shaft causing breakages so get trims when needed.

      Massage your head, it promotes circulation to promote growth, get into the habit of massaging as often as you can, before washing your hair and also massage during washing your hair. I like to massage a few drops of rosemary essential oil into my scalp before washing my hair, as rosemary is believed to stimulate hair growth. Another suggestion is to massage monistat into your scalp, yes it's a yeast infection cream, but it contains some of the same chemicals as rogaine so stimulates hair growth only without costing the earth.

      Try going without shampoo - still wash your hair but use less harsh cleansers - shampoo is a harsh detergent that strips away hairs natural oils leading to damage as well as causing your scalp to produce extra oil to replace what is removed making hair greasy, if you stop using shampoo your hair will be much healthier, stronger, shiny, easier to manage, it won't get greasy as fast, and healthier hair will grow better. There are different ways to wash hair without shampoo, I recommend conditioner-only/curly girl method, for this you simply use conditioner to wash hair with as this has enough detergent to cleanse but won't strip hair of natural oils as shampoo would. Seriously, don't be scared to try it as you're guaranteed better hair. You can read about curly girl method here http://motowngirl.com/no_shampoo.php and read more about shampoo damage here http://babyslime.livejournal.com/174054.html

      It also helps to avoid chemicals as much as possible, even products that claim to improve hairs condition can be damaging - for example many split-end or smoothing treatments contain silicone, which works by coating the hair so make it look healthier, but in the long-term it causes far more damage than good to the health of your hair. Look into natural brands, silicone-free and SLS-free products, also consider home treatments like homemade hair masks. If you use dies then these will cause a lot of damage, so consider switching to henna as this will change hair colour while also being a fantastic conditioning treatment, the best place for henna is http://www.hennaforhair.com

      Avoid hair dryers as overheating can damage your hair and never rub with a towel as it will damage the hair cuticles, instead leave to dry naturally or if you do use a hairdryer use protecting sprays and choose a dryer with lighter or cooler settings – use until your hairs 90% dry, no more. Also try using a wooden comb to brush then a hair brush with natural bristles as these are much gentler on your hair and can improve shine, another tip is to use a satin or silk pillow as this prevents hair snagging as it can on other materials.

      Things such as stress or bad diet can seriously effect your hair, I saw the huge effect diet has on hair when one of my friends sadly became anorexic, the effects started showing alarmingly fast, her hair became so brittle it would literally fall apart in her hands. Don't underestimate the importance of diet, don't follow fad diets or yo-yo diet, instead keep up a good healthy diet at all times. Particularly helpful foods are oily fish like sardines, oats, nuts, seeds, guavas, papayas, and of course lots of water, using a good multivitamin will help (hair & nail vitamins aren't necessary) and also I'd recommend flax seed oil in capsule form.

  12. QUESTION:
    does mane 'n tail shampoo really make your hair grow faster?
    i donated my hair to locks of love two years ago and it went from being almost waistlength to being chin length. currently it is only a little below my shoulders but i miss my long hair! if mane 'n tail doesn't work then any tips about what else i could do to make my hair grow faster?

    • ANSWER:
      You can take prenatal vitamins that are sold over the counter. These not only will help grow your hair longer quickly but will make your nails grow stronger and longer too!

      I used the Mane and Tail a few years ago and only saw a difference in the texture of my hair. It made it thicker not longer.

  13. QUESTION:
    does mane n tail shampoo and conditioner really make your hair grow faster?
    so i got mane n tail shampoo and conditioner so i just wanted to know if it really does make your hair grow faster

    • ANSWER:
      In a sense it might, but there is no guarantee,
      I use it myself and I must say it makes me hair shiny and a bit stronger but it all depends on your hair type (mine is fine and dry hair) .

      Main n Tail was formulated for horses hair original before they made it for human hair its extra conditioning so I guess that will have a factor but it all really depends on how your hair naturaly grows and how you take care of your hair.

      What I would recommend is before you wash your hair or even when you have the time just give your hair a scalp massage and do a deep conditioning treatment once a month or week( depending on your hair type) and just eat foods that are good for your body and drink plenty of water and milk (which is good for your teeth and eyes as well).

      But honestly its not really proven I like to believe it helps but I could just be delusional haha. XD

  14. QUESTION:
    Does Mane&Tail shampoo really make your hair grow faster?
    my hair is thick and curly and shoulder length, and i want my hair to grow faster. does it work?

    • ANSWER:
      Why do people keep saying "no?" I tried it on my own hair and it DOES work. Just a warning, though, you can only use it for a month at a maximum as it is very strong for human use. You'll notice your hair longer in two to three weeks. I experimented on my own hair and my hair is past my waist.

  15. QUESTION:
    Does Mane & Tail Actually Make Your Hair grow Faster and Thicker?
    Ok so i made a stupid choice and cut my hair really short and i want it back and fast so i was wondering does mane & tale actually help?

    • ANSWER:
      I liked it when I used it. My hair has always been thick, shiny and healthy looking, but it grows really slowly. Part of that is because it's naturally curly and so the length doesn't "show" the same way it does with strait hair.

      Another trick you can use to help your hair grow is to take pre-natal vitamins and/or Evening Primrose Oil (both should be easily found in the vitamin isle). They will help your hair be healthy and strong so that you get the most from your growth.

      All people have a natural amount their hair grows each month, for most it's about 1/4 an inch a month. There isn't a whole lot you can do to make it actually grow faster, but keeping it healthy and strong will make it appear to grow faster and better.

  16. QUESTION:
    Does Mane and Tail shampoo and conditioner make your hair grow faster?
    I saw this shampoo and conditioner work. I saw a suggestion on this to make your hair grow faster on another resolved question.

    • ANSWER:
      Nothing can really make your hair grow faster. The only thing you can do to improve hair growth is keep your hair extremely healthy. You can do so by taking in lots of protein, and conditioning your hair for as long as possible every day.
      I always wash and condition my hair as soon as I get in the shower, and then leave the conditioner in while I'm washing up until I'm ready to get out.
      Also, don't dye your hair. The more fried it is, the more resistant to growth it will be.

  17. QUESTION:
    Does Mane n Tail Shampoo and conditioner really make your hair grow faster?

    • ANSWER:
      Mane & Tall should have been the number 1 shampoo in the industry for growing hair. Mane & Tail is another shampoo meant for horses. Horses don't abuse their hair, using heating tools, and they eat better than people, but it won't add more hair & make their hair longer faster.

      Shampoo intended for animals may contain insecticides or other medications for treatment of skin conditions or parasite infestations such as fleas or mange. These must never be used on humans. Google Shampoo it will tell you that, on Wikipedia.

      Shampoos are meant for cleaning hair, eating is for growing and you can't speed up time, nor can you speed 'perfection.' "If you have no patience, you have no right growing long hair." ~ Hair expert of the 80's.

      Save your money instead of buying hair growth products or supplements. Vogue Dec. 2010, Vogue Feb. 2011 issue has a section on biotin, supplements, fish oil, etc. . Fish oil for example: Read the labels if they state that it contains: "one or more of the following: Cod, English Whiting, Shark."

      The FDA don't even approve of them. Because of inadequate quality control and inspection, supplements contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, or prescription drugs have been sold to unsuspecting consumers. And FDA rules covering manufacturing quality don’t apply to the companies that supply herbs, vitamins, and other raw ingredients.
      Beginning in February 2008, they experienced one symptom after another: diarrhea, joint pain, hair loss, lung problems, and fingernails and toenails that fell off. FDA has received numerous reports of harm associated with the use of these products, including stroke, liver injury, kidney failure, heart palpitations, and death. 3-15-11

      Google: MSN "Vitamins Can Do More Harm Than Good."
      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.

      CNN, Slate, Consumer Reports, MSN, YAHOO have posted them online for years how people spend billion per year on vitamins and supplements.  According to Everyday Health, here's an article that will tell you why . . . those PRODUCTS by any other name do NOT WORK.  It is false advertisements. Google: Are Supplements Good For You? About 7,430,000 results (0.15 seconds). THEN Google: Are vitamins & supplements good for you? About 4,250,000 results (0.14 seconds) Some can actually shorten your life!
      Google: Hair growth caused other men nationwide in class-action lawsuits. About 1,640,000 results (0.10 second.

      Best advice from Hollywood's well known hairstylist in the 80's once said: "Keep foods in your mouth and hair products on your hair."

      If you've straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all.
      Google: "Foods for Healthy Hair" - the website had moved, type it in.

      Growing healthy hair doesn't come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more. If you're in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you're eating healthy foods. But when hair isn't growing as fast, it's because they've been tempered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . .

      Cutting your split ends yourself, spend 5-10 mins. on a sunny day so you can easily spot them, using a 2" scissors, cut strand by strand, section by section, allowing new growth to take over. Then 2x a year, get a good hair cut. This won't speed things up, but it will make the hair look healthier while it's growing. Even healthy hair like mine get them, due to normal brushing & styling.

      Best answer comes from people with Avatars, showing their healthy shiny, soft, silky, smooth hair.

    does mane and tail shampoo make your hair grow faster?
    ive heard this horse shampoo makes your hair grow fast. is this true??

    anybody tried it?

    • ANSWER:
      No. Hair growth is genetic. You cannot make your hair grow faster. You can take care of it by using a good shampoo, conditioner and a regular trim so it doesn't stay damaged(which can make hair growth slower because of the damage). However you cannot speed up the growth process.

      Well for one try using Mane N' Tail Horse Shampoo. I use it all the
      time and it makes your hair grow faster. I;d say massage it into
      your scalp b/c thats going to help the roots if you just put it on
      the ends, it not going to do anything to it. You can find it at
      walmart in the pet section. also you should drink plenty of water
      to condition your hair and when shampooing and conditioning you should
      use cold or luke warm water on your hair so it won't damage it.
      Even hot water hurts your hair.

    i got my hair cut recently and it way to short for me but would it really make your hair grow faster i heard it makes your hair unhealthy i dunno can u help thanks for your opinions

    • ANSWER:
      Well hair grow half an inch each month on its own. But what I would suggest it try using Mane N' Tail Horse Shampoo and Conditioner. I use it all the timeand it does aid in growing your hair faster. I'd
      say massage it into your scalp so it can get to your roots well this increases the blood flow helping
      it grow faster. When shampooing and conditioning you should use cold or luke warm water on your hair so it won't damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.You can find it at walmart in the pet section.
      You should drink plenty of water to help condition your hair.

      Eating Coconut oil also has benifits its not only good for adding nutrients to the hair, but its also
      good for weight loss and has many more benifits.
      And don't forget about exercising, as much as I hate it, it actually helps by increasing the blood flow
      and stimulating the hair to grow faster.

    Does Mane 'n Tail shampoo actually make your hair grow longer, faster?

  26. QUESTION:
    Does Mane N' Tail shampoo and conditioner really make your hair grow faster?
    Or do you know any other methods for making hair grow faster?

    • ANSWER:
      absolutely nothing you can do will make your hair grow faster. Not even mane n tail. But it does condition deeper than usual conditioners, and provides nutrients right to the hair follicle, so hair appears healthier and shinier. The best thing you can do to encourage hair growth (even though it at best will add maybe two inches a year) is to take silica capsules or liquid once a day. Not coloring your hair will help it stay healthier, and cause less breakage, which will make it seem like your hair is growing fast as well.

  27. QUESTION:
    Does Mane n' Tail shampoo really make your hair grow faster?
    I'm growing out my hair and nothing works. Does Mane n' Tail shampoo?

    • ANSWER:
      nope :
      i tried it for a while after a bad haircut, and although it makes your hair shiny, it does not make it grow faster.
      if you haven't had a cut in a while, and the ends are dead, that may be why your hair isn't growing fast. if that's the case, get a really cheap hair trim that just gets the ends off (be specific about not cutting any more than necessary).
      this will keep the hair healthy and growing at a faster pace.
      good luck and remember that in this case, be very patient :)

      Make sure you go for monthly trims, it'll help. :)

    • ANSWER:
      Yes you can use it! The conditioner is especially good. I used it years ago. As far as making your hair grow faster, I couldn't attest to that statement! If you can't find it in a pharmacy store, try a veterinarian store/clinic, horse stable or( Equine supplies store), where they take care of animals, or sell them. If that fails, type their name into your web browser, and purchase it online.

      Can you really make your hair grow faster? The answer is no. The speed of growing is on your genes. But because of different factors our hair does not grow with its maximum speed. If you eliminate things that slow down hair growth, hair will grow faster. What factors slow down hair growth?

      1: Nutrition

      2: Wrong Hair Care

    • ANSWER:
      hair growing tips:
      every couple months, trim your hair!
      i know it sounds weird, but trimming prevents split ends and other bad things that could happen to your hair.
      take vitamins!
      amino acids, a, and b vitamins speed hair growth.
      get a hair mask like L'Oreal Everpure Moisture Restorative Mask and apply as it says on bottle!
      if your hair is damaged beyond repair, get it cut!
      if you dont, your hair wont grow right, and the ends will look bad, and your hair will not be healthy.
      get a scalp massaging oil, massinging your scalp speeds hair growth too!
      try not to blow dry your hair, let it air dry, its the best!
      if theres a day when you dont have to straighten or curl your hair, dont!
      Also, try not to wash your hair everyday. if you do, the water will strip your hair of its natural shine and nutrients!
      Never put wet hair into a ponytail, it makes dents in the hair and damages it.
      My final tip for getting long hair is having healthy hair!
      Happy hair growing, i hope this helps!

      Main N tail is a good shampoo and conditioner for African American hair. Get a healthy hair regimen Ex. washing and condition hair once a week. deep condition it once a week,apply leave in conditioner after hair has been washed conditioned and deep conditioned, oil your scalp with essential oil like coconut oil, castor oil, extra virgin olive oil, or tea tree oil every day before bed and when you wake up. You dont apply the oil to the hair that will make it too heavy just on your scalp. Try to where your hair in protective styles, pony tails, buns, or any style that will keep your ends from touching your clothes. Get your ends clipped every 3-4 months. Try to only apply heat but maybe once or twice a week this includes blow drying hair (air drying is much better). It may seem hard to not apply heat on the hair but eventually your hair will get use to the method. Also take vitamins. Biotin works really well its a vitamin for hair, skin, and nails and you will see a difference if you do these things. When you relax your hair try to stretch atleast 3 months.(stretching means going without relaxer)


Does Keratin Help Grow Hair

Liquid Keratin is the smart and inexpensive way to treat your hair without going to the salon for expensive treatments. The protein keratin that is utilized in these treatments is very healthy for your body, and it's isolated from pure New Zealand wool. The molecular weight of Liquid Keratin allows a healthy film to form on your cuticle surfaces.

Liquid Keratin can infuse your curly, frizzy and unmanageable hair with the protein keratin that it may be missing. It can replace this missing protein with one application, and it'll help your hair to look softer and more shiny, with less frizziness.

Liquid Keratin helps to replenish and nourish hair that is damaged or chemically treated. Salon hair treatments use formaldehyde and other harsh chemicals that can harm your hair, but Liquid Keratin doesn't. It's a simple treatment that leaves your hair stronger, smoother and healthier. It will also make it more easy to manage. After you treat your hair with Liquid Keratin, it'll be easier to style, and you can wear your hair in any way you like, without spending a lot of time and money at the salon.

  1. QUESTION:
    Does keratin mist help with hair growth?
    So I been using the CHI Keratin Mist because I would like my hair grow really long to my butt and its a little down my shoulders. Should I keep using keratin mist for hair growth?

    • ANSWER:
      i think that keratin mist you are using is to strengthen your hair, ingesting keratin would be the only way to go.

      Go get some pills from a local vitamin shop or order some online.

  3. QUESTION:
    question about the keratin hair treatment.. plz help =]?
    ok so when u get the treatment after a month or 2 does the hair grow out curly and the rest stays straight or does the treatment wear off after washing it???

    thats all i would like to know although details would be appreciated

    thnx BA 10 points =]

    • ANSWER:
      Hey!
      I have actually had my Keratin treatment in for 2.5 months! So I'm just the person you're looking for.
      Yes the hair does grow out curly sadly :( , and if you don't use the shampoos they recommend then your hair WILL get drier, it'll still be straight just drier and more prone to tangling.

      However, after Keratining your hair, it makes it VERY easy for you to straighten to your hair. It used to take my a couple of hours, now it takes me 10-30 mins, even with the curly roots.

      Anyways, Keratin is GREAT, and I thing it's the best money I have ever spent.
      go for it !

  4. QUESTION:
    How to grow your hair out.. I have curly shoulder length hair and it DOES NOT grow!?
    I do a lot for my hair. I eat tons of protein, vitamins, sleep, exercise, and hardly straighten it. I get the Brazilian keratin treatment every once in a while and don't understand why my hair hasn't grown for 3 years? Please explain and help it is very upsetting!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, Im very sorry for what happend. Now this is going to be alot of products, if you can try to get them little by little, they will help you. Ok so hair has 3 phases growing, shedding and resting, yours is probably in th resting phase. You need to take Garlic capsule, it will stop your hair from falling out, also try to take at least 4 capsules, brake them and masage your scalp with the oil so your hair can get the nutrients it needs from it directly. Apply Aromatase-7 Hair Regrowth Minoxidil Treatment directly to the bald spot. For shampoo and conditioner try Thicker Fuller hair, try to get the original formula, the new one has caffein and it smells strong or you can get a Biotin shampoo. If you can get Phyto Phytophanere Dietary Supplement thall be good cause they help alot with the hair growth.
      Now for the rest of the hair, you need Hard Core Protein, ApHogee Two step Protein Treatment (Please research this product prior to use), fallow the instructions in the back, is really easy, after that fallow with a good deep conditioner, i use Biolage Conditioning Blam. Do this protein treatent at least once a month. Other than that this is optional
      i Use:
      Castor Oil
      Doo Gro Thicker hair Oil
      Wild Growth Hair Oil
      Use any of these three oils 3 time a week, Castor oil works wonders, you should try it.
      Do not brush hair while wet, If possible use Boar Bristle Brush to style your hair.
      Take Vitamin E and Biotin supplements, Flax seed oil supplements and garlic are also good. MSM is known to be a monster when it comes to hair growth. Massage your scalp at least one a day. The blood flow to you head which stimulates hair growth.
      These are all thing's that will help your hair grow at a faster pace, theve been helping me so far and ive been having great results. Here are some before and afters.
      hope this help =)

  5. QUESTION:
    What would a Keratin based shampoo and conditioner do for my hair?
    So i have a flat iron. And as you know Flat Irons are a girls bffff! Well i'm tired of my hair frying. I want to grow my hair out to be nice and long. So my question is, Would a Keratin based Shampoo and conditioner help my hair grow and stay healthy even though I use a flat iron?

    • ANSWER:
      Well, hair is made out of Keratin, so it does help promote healthy hair.
      But the best thing you can do is let it go natural.
      If you 100% HAVE to straighten your hair, i recomend this ion product. it has Jojoba oil in it. What you do is, you put it in your hair when its wet and then let it air dry. When you straighten your hair, the heat activates these little beads that are in there. It mands split ends so your hair doesn't break off easily.

      ~Hope this helps and best of luck!~

  7. QUESTION:
    how long will it take to grow my hair to waist length?
    My hair is shoulder length now, i flat iron it with an expensive flat iron that puts keratin (the building blocks of hair) in my hair every other day so my hair is smooth and healthy but it does get alot of heat I am 14 and my hair is naturally black. idk if that helps. it was a bob at jawline and it took 5 months to get down just past my shoulders. any ideas? an estimate would be wonderfully helpful. also does trimming your hair really help it grow faster? if so how ? (= thanks for the help

    • ANSWER:
      You should try taking Biotin. 5000 micro grams a day. You can get it at walmart, sams club, cvs, riteaid, I think everywhere. It's not just good for growth/nails, but it makes your hair shinier/thicker/healthier.
      Also, mane & tail shampoo/con. (walmart, amazon, kmart, Sallys) is great.

      My tips:

      Massage your scalp everyday to make the blood flow. As well as holding your head upside down for 30 seconds a day.

      -Mix rosemary with cleansing shampoo and apply in your hair. It works as a good anti-dandruff treatment.

      -Massage the oil of arnica, marigold, rosemary and southernwood into the scalp. It is very useful in hair loss.

      -Make an aloe vera shampoo. When combined with wheat germ oil and coconut milk, aloe vera gel makes a shampoo to promote hair growth. Use the shampoo as often as you wash your hair.

      1.Drinking plenty of water and eating plenty of raw fruits and vegetables is probably the best way to achieving healthy hair.

      2.Vitamins B, C, F, zinc, iron, copper and protein are essential for hair growth.

      3. Brush your hair gently with preferably wooden brushes to increase hair growth.

      4.Boil 1 cup of celery leaves with stems, strain and add juice of 1 lemon. You can
      rinse your hair with this after washing your hair. It makes your hair look healthy
      and lustrous.

      5.Lavender oil has been shown to increase hair growth so massage the oil once a week and soak for 30 minutes before washing.

      6.If one wants to grow hair, trim the hair once every month.

      7.Never brush the hair when it is wet.

      8.Massage aloe vera gel over the scalp and leave it for about one hour. After this rinse the hair with warm water. It gives amazing results for hair growth.

      9.Rinsing your hair with apple cider vinegar and sage tea helps in hair growth

      10.Boil rosemary leaves in water and use this water while washing your hair daily to improve hair growth.

      11.Massaging your scalp vigorously with your fingers promotes hair growth.

      12.Rinsing your hair with one juiced lemon and one cup of water is said to bring
      life and shine back to dull hair.

      13.Rub olive oil into the scalp to promote hair growth.

      14.Massage the scalp with egg yolk, leave for 1 hour and wash.

      15.Rub olive oil into the scalp to promote hair growth.

      16.Rinse hair with a mix of apple cider vinegar and sage tea to help hair grow.

      If you have split ends, it stops the splitting to get it trimmed.
      An estimate to get it to your waist would be 6-12 months. Just follow what I did, and it should grow fast :)

I AM RUNNING OUT OF STUFF TO DO PLLLZZZ HELP!

    • ANSWER:
      There isn't too much you can do. There are a few things that might help though.
      First of all, don't use any heat on it. Straighteners, curling irons, etc. Hair drying is ok sometimes.
      Eat healthy!! Make sure you have a diet that includes all the food groups and lots of healthy nutritious foods.
      You could try getting a inch or two cut off. It will almost certainly help it grow. You could try getting a cute, shorter cut.
      Then it will grow faster. I don't know why, but it does!!
      Good luck!!

  11. QUESTION:
    Was this Keratin Treatment done right?
    Hi,
    I had someone do what I believe was a Brazilian Keratin Hair Treatment. After washing and drying my hair. She put some stuff on it, said it was Keratin (I didn't see the bottle). After putting that on my hair and combing it through, she straightened my hair with a flat iron. She straightened while it was still wet from the stuff she put it. Is this right? It was steaming and sizzling like crazy, but I was too scared to say anything. Now my hair smells like it's burnt (horrible smelling!), and my ends seem like they're kinky looking and my hair feels dry. Did she do this correctly? She says to wait at least 5 days before washing.

    Hair Professionals!! Please help me!!
    I wanted to get a straightening because I want to grow my hair out, but straightening and blow drying every day were causing major damage. What can I doo?

    • ANSWER:
      Hello. I had this treatment done a week ago and my hairdresser let the keratin set in with a cap for 1/2 hour, then blew it completely dry. After that she flat-ironed it. It didn't steam at all. I read a little on it and everywhere it says to blow dry first. Also, I was told wait only 3 days. I would go to a salon who specialized in the treatment and ask if they think this woman did damage and how they can correct it. You hair should not feel damaged. Mine was damaged before and now is silky. Best of luck to you.

  12. QUESTION:
    Global keratin hair treatment?
    I just heard about this treatment, and I have a lot of questions.
    Thank you for all of your help.

    1- Would I still need to use a flat iron on my hair after I got this done?
    2- How much does it usually cost?
    3- How long does it usually stay straight?
    4- Do most hair salons have the products for it?
    5- If my hair is bleached blonde, would I still be able to get this done?
    6- Could I bleach my hair after the treatment?
    7- Would my hair still be able to grow out?
    8- What products should I use on my hair after?
    9- Would this be really bad for my hair?

    If I think of any more, I'll edit this. Thanks! <3.
    @AmyJoy, Thank you!:)
    My mom is a professional hairstylist, but she's already not so happy about me wanting to bleach my hair. I figured i'd ask everyone on 'Yahoo Answers' before I found out if it was bad for my hair or not.
    :)

    • ANSWER:
      1- When you blow dry your hair, use a fan brush and the wide flat funny looking attachment on a good, hot hairdryer and you should be good if you use a heat tamer. There are also great formulas for keratin treated hair that restores the proteins back into your hair.
      2. Mine cost 0 in a salon in Baltimore, Maryland.
      3- It depends on how well you take care of it. Showering daily with the keratin care shampoo and conditioner (if you have dry hair, condition every day wash every second day) it should last about 5-6 months.
      4- I would guess so, because it is a really popular treatment.
      5- Ask a Professional.
      6- I wouldn't rec commend it, but you can color it. (you shouldn't bleach anyway)
      7- Of course!
      8- Heat tamers, special shampoo and conditioner, protein replenisher. (Stay away from shampoos with sodium in them if you dont want to buy the pricey salon one.)
      9- No, if it is done right your hair will be flat, shiny, and strong. :]
      TIPS: The first few days are key to it looking good and lasting long. It CANNOT get wet. Try not to put it up or sweat, and sleep on your face (haha) or it could leave a PERMANENT kink)
      If you swim in a chlorinated pool, when you get out run condition through your hair, let it sit for 3 mins then rinse it out at the shower or with a hose. Chlorine is evil when left in keratin treated hair.
      -DO NOT USE THE BOX FROM A DRUGSTORE. Get it done by a proffesional. trust me, it is worth it.
      Your hair will smell like old lady fart for the first 4 days, so try not to do it when you have school or something.
      (If you live near baltimore, go to Hair Envy & Co.)
      My products are- Keritin complex infusion therapy, and keritin replenishing shampoo and conditioner, by coppola. Sometimes I use a tresseme heat tamer.
      On really limp, thin days I use Beyond the Zone protien infusion.

  14. QUESTION:
    Growing hair out long? Tips?
    My hair is currently armpit length with layers. I went to a salon and the stylist said my hair was healthy and thick, but that was before I bleached my brown hair with a 20/30 vol. once then with some kind of blonde at home color because the first did not make it light enough and the box did NOTHING. So I went back to the salon and bleached it again with a higher vol. and got platinum unhealthy hair. I have no idea what I was thinking! Anyways I decided I should at least make all this torture to my hair worth it and not go back to my natural hair color and I used another at home kit this time a nice dark beige blonde. Of course my hair is not nearly as healthy as before so I trim my split ends all the time. But to keep this color, whenever my roots grow out to about 2 inches I will have to dye my roots platinum blonde and then dye my hair using the same dark blonde box. I know this is horrible for my hair but I desperately want to keep this color and grow my hair out HIP/WAIST length! While trying to get my hair healthy I deep condition it with a keratin conditioner once a week for a whole night. I brush my hair the proper way and HAVE NOT used any heat products for a whole year. I wash my hair every three days and When my hair is damp I use a keratin spray, Detangle spray, and a curling mouse. Also My mother tells me keratin dries out my hair is that true? Since I plan to keep dying hair what do you recommend I do to help keep it healthy. Like moisturizing or keratin deep conditioning? What hair products would be good for my wavy, colored, dry hair?

    • ANSWER:
      I say the Wen hair care or Her-Styler. Wen uses natural extracts to keep the hairs Natural shine and nutrients it needs. Her Styler uses Vitamins the hair needs to keep shine and smoothness when you style it. I recommend not styling your hair too much and limit the heat and chemical damage. I think the deep conditioning should work out. Keratin does dry out the hair unfortunately. But dying your hair can cause MAJOR chemical damage! Hair was not made for bleaching and chemically altering. Please try to limit the dying, maybe once you have your hair the length you want you may continue to dye it, but I don't recommend it. Chemical damage is way worse than heat damage. If you chemically damage your hair it may lose the shine, softness, and texture to it that it originally had. And for dry hair, I really recommend the Wen hair care line.

  15. QUESTION:
    Keratin Glue and hair extensions...advise needed please! 3rd time i have asked!?
    So i've done a little research on making my own hair extensions etc However what i cannot seem to find out is since the keratin glue granules come in different colours, which should/can i use to make and put them into my hair since i dye my hair regularly.
    I am assuming that if i use a dark colour keratin it will not change and become very obvious if i dye my hair blonde, however if i was to use a blonde/yellow keratin granule will this just blend against and show through dark colour?!
    Maybe this is a dumb question to those in the know - but i cannot find any info on this particular issue anywhere!
    I'm thinking clear granules may be the answer??? Help!!!
    If it helps, i shall be making my own hair extensions on dark blonde hair and sticking them into my dark brown hair.
    Please do not tell me that i shall be taking them out because of natural growth before i need to dye my hair again, as my hair does not grow very fast at all - hence the extensions!

    This is the 3rd time i have asked to no avail since spammers appear to love me!!! HELP
    Thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      ALWAYS clear!!! So many reasons why. You NEVER want to see any tracks or glue in your hair. And if ya can't find any, go to a salon and politely ask if they can order some for you and give em a tip! Hope this helps!

  19. QUESTION:
    How to grow long, curly/wavy hair?
    I've been trying to grow my hair down to the small of my back for about nine years now and it's never gotten past the bottom of my shoulder blades.

    I've used keratin based conditioners (which help some, but make my hair look really greasy after about a day and a half), and in the nine years I've done two big "chops" to take the split ends off. My hair is pretty wavy (really curly right after it dries) and I've heard that wavy/curly hair is harder to grow because the ends are damaged my more easily.

    First of all, is there any truth to that theory? Second, is there anything that can be done to prevent that? Is there anything I can do to speed up the growing process that doesn't involve a gimmicky product?

    • ANSWER:
      There is no way to force your hair to grow, how long your hair grows all depends on genetics. Your hair may only grow to a certain length and not grow any further because the hair folicles fall out and therefore can obviously grow no further.

      I was fortunate enough to have long haired people in my family and I inherited the gene. Now I have super long hair. On the other hand, my sister can not grow her hair past the nape of her neck, and becomes frustrated over it. The theory that "wavy/curly hair is harder to grow because the ends are damaged more easily" is absolute rubbish, I know people who have long curly/wavy hair... like I said, it all depends on your genetics.

      Please don't try remedies like mayonnaise and eggs "full of protein, your hair will love it, it will make it grow better" blah blah. The only thing that will do is make your head smell like a rubbish bin.

      Actually having regular trims will make your hair grow thicker and healthier, I made the silly mistake when I was growing my hair long not to trim it regularly and had split ends that spread right up the hair shaft. Trying to grow hair that has split ends is a waste of time and will just cause further damage to your hair the longer you leave it. By regular trim I mean about every 6-8 weeks. If however like me you have split ends that have spread up your hair, you don't have to cut them off, you can purchase treatments that will help repair the hair. The lady at the salon called it "a hair cut in a bottle." It is made by Wella and it is called SP Ends Express. If you can't find that than ask for another product.

      If however your hair doesn't seem like it will ever grow, then I would recommend hair extensions. They come in a variety of colours and lengths, and you can purchase permanent, clip in, glued in and sewn in hair extensions. Try and purchase the human hair extensions rather than the synthetic ones, they may be dearer but will not look fake. The real hair extensions can be curled, straightened, crimped, brushed etc. Which also means you need to look after them as if it were your real hair.

      Also avoiding curling irons, flat irons, crimpers and other hair appliances that use heat will help you to avoid dryness and split ends.

      Good luck with the hair growing

    • ANSWER:
      First of all . . . your hair is ALREADY a little damaged.
      2. Micro is damaging as well.
      3. Relaxer or should I say Keratin is not approved by the FDA, contains formaldehyde causing cancer.
      4. Your hair grows 2" a year.

      With that said, your hair is heading for the worst.
      1. Your hair is Afri-Amer, white and Asian (don't matter, but it's in your genes . . . . which is the worst most fragile of all hair types. Many side effects happens to normal hair: hair falls, hair loss, not growing normally, split ends. If that's what happens to normal hair, imaging those happening to your hair, which is the most fragile of all hair types.

    • ANSWER:
      Copula Keratin straightener has an aldehyde base and is so dangerous I am blown away that the FDA has not pulled it from the market.
      Breathing that and the Brazilian straighteners are causing lung cancer
      ISO has a great formaldehyde and aldehyde free product and is not dangerous

  22. QUESTION:
    HAIR GETS WAVY? PLEASE HELP!!!?
    3 Years ago my hair was supposed to get a few highlights, i was only 12. and of course stupid. It ended up to be a full head job. and i was a blonde, with dry, brittle, ugly, hair until october 2008 when i used natural insticts dark brown hair dye

    my hair was black for months. and within the last 2 months. the color completely faded, giving me my natural brown hair color which matches the few inches that have come in :D

    i have been using aussie shampoo
    (no wonder it lightened but thats ok :D )

    I was using john frieda brunette shampoo which i found only made the top of my head shiny which is my 'real' uncolored hair, even though the natural insticts is on top of it. the bottom part of my hair, underneath the natural insticts brown is the bleach

    i had my hair trimmed 2 weeks ago

    and the bottoms of my hair is still frizzy

    and I think its because i need a product that will keep my hair silky

    after using aussie shampoo i use chi keratin mist which makes hair grow in nice and healthy, i used the lo real leave in conditoner up until last night when i switched to the aussie spray leave in conditioner, and i spray it with nexxus protectant

    which i use every morning while straightening my hair

    Chi protector did not work with my hair,

    In the morning after sleeping with my hair air dryed hair

    I look into my mirror
    ( 1 out of 3 lights is missing so its dim in my room)

    and i see frizzy, dry hair

    which usually makes me mad and angered

    until i go into the lightend bathroom or any room.. where my hair is silky and shiny

    but im always looking into the mirror tha tmakes it look lyke crap lmao

    and then

    i straighten it using nexxus protectannt

    and throughout the day i throw on Treseme frizz cream stuff

    which just makes it greasy for a few minutes

    and by the end of the day

    theres waves and they get a little frizzy

    WHAT STUFF WORKS TO KEEP IT STRAIGHT

    -Gell which i used for one week has made my tips dry
    -Hairspray dryed out my hair a few months ago

    im going to cvs tonight so id appreciate some quick suggestions

    and btw

    when my hairs straightend its straight and silky sinc i use the gvp chi remake thats made by fhi

    and my hair feels so soft and silky its like weird..

    lol

    • ANSWER:
      it is the curse of frizzy hair im afraid , it will always be tempremental , try using a really good shampoo and conditioner like bed head miosture maniac or redken all soft and change use a different shampoo every couple of weeks and then go back to your regular, as your hair becomes immune if you constantly use the same products.
      do you have ghd straightners? its really the only answer
      also as far as product use bed head spoil me spray on wet hair and blow dry.
      for tonight being that you need a quick answer put some face cream, the amount the size of a pea and give your hair a really good blow dry if you dont know how to blow dry your hair like a hairdresser would do then google for a proper explanation it makes such a difference!

  23. QUESTION:
    HELP! I want to grow my hair out!!!?
    I have naturally brunette hair, I bleached it several times, and it broke off super short, so now it's brown with blonde highlights, and I have done a Keratin treatment, and go back for another one in 2 weeks, so my hair is SO MUCH SOFTER AND SHINY again!! :) But it's still SUPER short, like shoulder and ear length in places... I just want to know how to wear it so it won't break off, and if their is any supplements or tips on it to grow out THICK and LONG (past the middle of my back) and how long it will take :) & It is also curly which doesn't make it any better lol :)

    • ANSWER:
      The method of styling is not the problem here, but the chemicals that are building in your skin, that's causing your hair to get broken off so EASILY.

      Supplements can do more harm than good. If it is super short & so much SOFTER & SHINY NOW, hair products, and products from GNC will take those away just as fast.

      First of all: Relaxers Warning: they're not permanent, that's 0 - 0 each time you get them done. One I responded, she had hers done in March and this is now May when she posted it? It is a billion dollar business, and they do not give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss due to 'abuse', in this case, cancer.

      Google Permanently straightening hair warning, about 7,410,000 results (0.08 seconds) , more warnings during the last months. I've been posting about them since 2009. Canada had issued a public health warning regarding Brazilian Blowout and has stopped the distribution of their salon products; Ireland has also issued a recall. ~ Also published in Vogue Feb. 2011.

      Despite this federal government warning and months of negative news reports, many salon owners admit they still use Brazilian Blowout and demand for the 0 to 0 labor intensive treatment remains high. ~ Fox news May 30, 2011

      The FDA don't even approve of them. Because of inadequate quality control and inspection, supplements contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, or prescription drugs have been sold to unsuspecting consumers. And FDA rules covering manufacturing quality don’t apply to the companies that supply herbs, vitamins, and other raw ingredients.
      Beginning in February 2008, they experienced one symptom after another: diarrhea, joint pain, hair loss, lung problems, and fingernails and toenails that fell off. FDA has received numerous reports of harm associated with the use of these products, including stroke, liver injury, kidney failure, heart palpitations, and death. 3-15-11

      Google: MSN "Vitamins Can Do More Harm Than Good."
      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.

      CNN, Slate, Consumer Reports, MSN, YAHOO have posted them online for years how people spend billion per year on vitamins and supplements.  According to Everyday Health, here's an article that will tell you why . . . those PRODUCTS by any other name do NOT WORK.  It is false advertisements. Google: Are Supplements Good For You? About 7,430,000 results (0.15 seconds). THEN Google: Are vitamins & supplements good for you? About 4,250,000 results (0.14 seconds) Some can actually shorten your life!
      Google: Hair growth caused other men nationwide in class-action lawsuits. About 1,640,000 results (0.10 second.

      Best advice from Hollywood's well known hairstylist in the 80's once said: "Keep foods in your mouth and hair products on your hair."

      If you've straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all.
      Google: "Foods for Healthy Hair" - Your hair may be the fastest-growing tissue in the body but, unlike the skin, it cannot repair itself. That is why getting the right balance of vitamins and proteins is imperative. Don't expect to look like you've stepped out of a hair commercial the day after you've changed your diet. It is likely to take at least three months before you actually see tangible results.

      Growing healthy hair doesn't come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more. If you're in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you're eating healthy foods. But when hair isn't growing as fast, it's because they've been tampered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . .

      Oprah have done that method for over 20 years, She also uses plastic curlers, to tame the curls.

  24. QUESTION:
    How to get shiny, frizz free hair?
    So I have naturally course, curly, VERY frizz-prone hair. I am brunette and have hair that is 4-5 inches below my shoulders when it is straight.
    Here are the products I use on my hair:
    Head and Shoulders Anti- Dandruff Shampoo (I don't have dandruff, I use it to make my hair grow)
    Herbal Essences None of your Frizziness Shampoo
    Redken Shampoo for Color-treated hair (my hair is NOT color treated, but I find that this one makes my hair really soft)
    Garneir Fructis Shampoo for Frizzy, Dry, Unmanageable Hair
    Herbal Essences None of your Frizziness Conditioner
    Garneir Fructis Conditioner for Frizzy, Dry, Unmanageable Hair
    Organix Moroccan Argon Oil Repairing Conditioner

    When I shower, I only apply shampoo to my roots/scalp area, and I don't apply conditioner to my roots, only the shaft. I wash my hair with warm water, but I blast it will cold water right before I get out of the shower. I air dry my hair, and then straighten it will a round brush or a paddle brush.

    After the shower, while my hair is damp, I use these products:
    Garneir Fructis Leave in Conditioner
    Joico Daily Leave in Detangler
    Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum
    Bain de Terre Anti-Frizz Recovery Complex

    These products kinda work, the condition of my hair has improved ever since I started using them, but I still get a lot of frizz from the middle of my hair shaft, down. I have a lot of split ends, because I straighten my hair most days (I use a heat protectant, CHI 44 iron guard), but my hair still breaks easily. How can I get rid of that frizz?
    Also, my hair is ALWAYS so incredibly dull. No matter what I use, it is STILL dull. I can style my hair well, but I just can not get any shine what so ever! Do you know of any particular products to help with that?
    How can I trim my split ends on my own? Any tricks? When ever I go to the hair salon to do it, they cut off way too much.
    Also, what does a keratin treatment do to curly hair? I might get one in a few weeks.

    Thanks a lot!!! The most helpful answer will get 10 points!

  25. QUESTION:
    Confusion About Brazilian Keratin Treatment-Please Help Me!?
    I am a teenage African American female (with chemically relaxed hair) interested in getting the Brazilian Keratin Treatment (BKT).

    But before I ask my parents, I need to know something:

    Do you need to continue getting your hair relaxed (with a relaxer =P like design essentials/dark and lovely, etc.) when this treatment is taken place?

    ex. I get my hair relaxed and then I get the treatment done after that...within an immediate to 3 day range. The BKT lasts for 3-4 months.

    Do i need to relax my hair in between those times?

    Does the BKT totally REPLACE the relaxer(please answer truthfully because this is important), or is it just a treatment to keep the hair straight?

    Also, will it make my hair GROW?

    Will it heal my damaged (split) hair?

    I know it contains formaldehyde, a carcinogen(can that prevent me from having kids =o?).
    But if the BKT was so bad why wouldn't the FDA say DON'T USE THIS ****!?

    Or do you think I should forget about the BKT :( ?

    Your input is appreciated. Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      Acually, Formaldehyde can literally kill you, which is why you are suppose to be in a well venilated area with masks, and they DO use Formaldehyde, which gives your hair the good results...The FDA only allows Salons(hair products) to use so much of a Formaldehyde..Besides, they aren't watching every single hairstylist and what they use...People don't always go by the law, you know.
      No, It will not make your hair grow. No it won't heal split ends or damaged hair, in fact, It damages your hair. and only a trim will get rid of split ends. The Brazilian hair straightener is a relaxer(Which is just a fancy work for chemical hair straightener). Of course, You will need to continue getting it done. It's chemicals and eventually your hair will grow out, and it will go back to normal.

  26. QUESTION:
    i need help with getting my hair healthy again!?
    okay so im black and white & my hair used to be extremely long and i put relaxers in it and straightened it to much and i started getting split ends and it eventually broke off alot but i left it curly for a while & i grew back but was half straight half curly because of the relaxer so i decided to put in another relaxer to make it all striaght but it just got more damaged and broke off so that my hair barely touches my shoulders and so when i started school again it was really short really damaged and very thin... i got extensions that were atached to my hair with keratin wax thinking that if i left my real hair alone it would grow out when i took out the extensions... little did i know when i took them out my hair was matted and the wax ripped out chuncks and chunks of my hair. so i decided to go to homeschool because i did not want to go to school with my hair ruined like that. and so my hair gradualy started to grow and it touched my shoulders again but it was soo uneven so i got it trimmed so that it would be even so it could grow evenly and now it barely touches my shoulders [again] and im currently in public school but i want to go back to highschool being natural with my hair a normal healthy length again and so i wanted to just finish the year in homeschool and go back to highschool the next year. how can i get my hair to grow like 7 inches in 7 months is it impossible? what prodcts do i use? or could i get extensions that last long that dont damage my real hair because i've tried the clip in kind but they dont stay in all the time... so what do i do? help please!

    • ANSWER:
      Stop processing your hair - start massaging your hair with almond oil or olive oil but make sure you warm up the oil a little bit in microwave or something so that it goes down to the roots of your hair - wash hair after one hour - let it air dry so you don't get frizzy hair or the split end becasue of the hair dryer - bend your head down and comb from the back to the front many times - it will also circulate your blood to the brain and it's an exercise that will help the hair to grow faster - Go to an indian grocery store or something and buy a pack of "Amla", it comes in a pack and it's dry powder - so mix a few tablesppons of that powder in the water and leave it overnight, put the mixture in your hair in the morning and leave it for an hour or so and then wash it with clean water, it will make your hair grow so fast that you won't believe and also other hair problems will go away and you will experience much healthier, softer and stronger hair once again - Use shappoo that is for dry and damaged/processed hair - use neutrogina's hair mask once a week, it's awsome! - use a good conditioner each time you wash your hair - There are plunty of leave in treatments for hair - what else i can tell you - Oh use hair factor vitamins by twinlab - it's for hair, skin and nails....It's cheap and really works, i take them everyday myself....And don't worry much about your hair - just take care of them and be stress free - remember your hair will always grow , it is a slow process so don't give up or don't get fed up - you'll do fine - OH YEAH don't lock yourself in the house seriously - just wear some hat or bandana like it's in fashion now a days or wear a scarf - Even if i shave my head right now i won't hesitate to go out shpping in Macy's or a supermarket - Love and adore yourself in any way you represent yourself - GOOD LUCK!

  27. QUESTION:
    How long should i wait to relax my hair? or should i just keep getting the Brazilian Keratin?
    I need help ! well to begin about a year ago i decided to cut my hair, i cut it into a layered bob it was very cute and sassy. I do have african textured hair but its more of a soft curl. Anyway, im 20 and ive been relaxing my hair since i was like 13. I had long full hair maybe under my breasts before i cut it and i always get semi permanent hair dye jet black i always used cellophane's by Sebastian. That's all i ever did, until i got tired of my black hair and i waited a couple months for some of the black to get out and then i dyed it with regular dye! i knew that dye plus relaxer do not mix what so ever but i felt since my hair was so healthy it wouldn't do much damage. p.s. i already had my bob when i did this.

    So after i noticed u can barely see the color i wanted so i dyed it jet black with regular dye, and then about 3 weeks later i got a relaxer, dumb i know. well my hair fell out a lot.... luckily i have a lot of hair and it grows mighty fast so after i got new growth i did a brazilian keratin, and it was good, couldve been better its just the brand i used wasnt the best. I have a asymmetrical short bob its cute but since my hair is thick at times it looks too poofy and i hate it...so i kind of want to get a relaxer. but i wouldnt until my hair is fully better. Some people tell me to just keep getting the keratin treatment since my hair gets curly with it and i wont have to relax it anymore. So should i relax it yet or not? last time i relaxed it was in august. so i dont know if i can. i heard since the dye isnt fully out my hair will keep breaking...

    one more thing, can someone please give me ideas how to stlye my hair WET? im latina so i dont know how to stlye a lot but i see alot of african american women who do very nice hairstyles with pixies and bobs and wet hair? thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      hello my fellow latina. i'm brazilian and i've come to help you :)
      my cousin had the same thing happen to her. the exact same thing. she relaxes her hair every 6 months now but it's grown to full length because she stopped dying it and didnt go overboard on relaxing. every brazilian uses products w/ keratin in it. so i suggest you keep that because it keeps your hair extreeemely healthy.
      hold off on relaxing because it does temporarily damage your hair abit.

      how to style: if you live in a hot humid place use an anti-humidity spray (KMS makes AWESOME ones) if you're going to blow dry it. also, use a deep conditioner like aussie deep conditioning after you shampoo/condition it'll help with frizz etc.

  28. QUESTION:
    Is keratin shampoo and conditioner on healthy hair bad for you?
    Today I bought Paul Mitchell Awapuhi wild ginger shampoo and cream rinse. I wasn't familiar with keratin products so I researched it online and now I'm not sure if this is the right product for me. My hair is blonde and damaged from hair coloring products. For the last 4 months I haven't done anything to my hair (didn't color, flat iron or even blow dry) I have been trying to grow out my natural hair so my roots are about 4 inches long and are very healthy. While it may help my already damaged hair I was wondering if too much keratin on my natural healthy hair can cause it to break off or cause any other damage, or is it actually good for healthy hair as well.

    • ANSWER:
      it will be good for your hair and really help your hair:)

  29. QUESTION:
    How can i get my mom to cut all of her hair off?
    My mother has come to me for help with her hair. im one of those people who have long healthy hair that always gets compliments about it due to the fact that i take such good care of my hair (diet and all)

    my mother has curly hair thats somewhat easy to tame when it comes to frizzy-ness (she's puerto rican)

    now the problem is they way she takes care of her hair. she has very very very damaged hair due to coloring her hair 1-2 everymonth (trying to get rid of grey hair) does not get her hair cut very often , and straightens it maybe twice a week.

    she told me she wants to get her hair to look like tyra banks in this photo
    http://www.mamapop.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/tyra-banks.jpg

    i told her what i wanted to do ( since she rarely gets out of the house ) is to cut her hair super short like a pixie cut to rid of all the damaged hair , then let her hair grow naturally very long ( with proper diet , and vitamins including biotin ) and when she gets it to the right length to go get the hair cut , get her hair dyed to the color and get the Brazilian keratin treatment .

    she refused my other option of getting a sow-in like tyra

    she says she rather not get a short hair cut due to the fact that she like putting her hair up sometimes and that she says her hair would look hideous in humid weather ( live in florida) even though ive told her there are ways to control that

    any advice?
    im not trying to control her , she came to me thank you rudeness! its the only way to get her healthy hair and she's shooting down the ideas i give her even though she asks me for help. thats the problem

    • ANSWER:
      Hey!

      I thought it's kind of funny that you are a guy, and you wrote "I have long healthy hair'. Lol, sorry, ignore my stupid sense of humour.

      Well, first of all, it is very sweet of you to care about your mom and her appearance.
      You should be honest with her, and tell her: "That's what I think you should do to have healthy long hair. If you don't want to listen to me, that's ok. But it's my honest opinion. I'm just trying to be helpful."

      Also consider a very unfair, yet true (mostly) fact: Mothers tend to listen to daughter's advice when it it comes to looks, since they think a girl would know more about beauty and such. Yes, unfair.
      So, I would recommend you to research a lot about this, and show your mom how much you actually know about healthy hair care.
      Maybe she will listen to you.

      Also, ask your girl friends about their opinion. Maybe?
      You can also consult a proffesional, or a family friend with same problems?

      Good luck!
      Hope I helped in any way!♥

  30. QUESTION:
    Brazilian Keratin Treatment or Texturizer? Please Help!?
    I have curly hair, not extremely curly, but curly enough to get annoyed every morning, lol. i'm African-American. I want to get a straightener because i'm tired of flat irons. i also want something natural and help my hair grow not break off. on top of that, i don't want a perm. so i want something that will not easily sweat out after a short time, healthy, and very straight that i don't have to use an iron. so my question is, how much does both Brazilian Keratin Treatment and Texturizer usually cost these days? do i have to always go back to the salon for touch ups for each? how long does it last on hair? is it healthy? how long does it take to put on hair? also is it worth it?
    and also whats the difference between those two?

  32. QUESTION:
    Not sure if I should permanently straighten hair?
    Pretty thick, somewhat wavy black hair. If I don't straighten it, it looks really frizzy and unkept even though it's been washed and combed properly. My friends suggested I get japanese hair straightening, but these are my concerns about it:

    -I've read horror stories that people lost half/all their hair, or it was really damaged, is this true?
    -I don't have the money to go whenever new hair grows back in
    -Won't it look really bad once the normal wavy/frizzy hair starts growing back again?
    -Not sure how super straight hair would look. Kinda want something in between?

    Are these reasonable concerns, and what can I do to prevent/deal with them? Also what is the difference between japanese hair straightening and Brazilian Keratin?

    I'm starting college this fall so I wanted to get a neater, fresher look but not sure if this is the right way... help please!

      Don't do it! It will definitely damage your hair beyond repair.

  35. QUESTION:
    My thick, long, unruly hair is driving me crazy this summer?
    I set a goal to grow my hair out to elbow length. I'm almost there. My hair requires a lot of maintenance to keep it straightened and out of my face and in summer. After going to the trouble of blowing my hair straight, I go outside and begin to sweat which causes my roots to frizz and before long, I just twist my hair up into a clip which leaves a big crimp in it, so in other words it's a waist of time for me to put the effort into blowing it straight when it's so hot outside. Then, in the winter, I battle static which usually results in me using tons of hair spray (which means I have to start all over and wash my hair again the next day) and clips to avoid looking like Einstein. In spring and fall, when the weather is mild, I have wonderful hair days, but that still leaves me with two out of four seasons not accomplishing the look I want with my hair. Should I just give up and cut my hair short or what? I feel like if I didn't have long hair I'd lose a lot of femininity but if my hair hardly ever looks the way I want it too, there isn't much point keeping it long. I've had short haircuts before and always regret it. In the summer, I have to be able to pull my hair up, off my neck and face or it drives me crazy. So if I cut my hair short, it would have to be boy short. I'd be miserable if my hair was too long to get it off my neck when I'm hot and too short to pull it up. So, what should I do? Maybe a really short cut and a wig? I really just don't know and I don't want to look like a boy. I even got one of those expensive keratin straightening treatments done on my hair which are suppose to last 6 months, but my hair is so rebellious, it was a total waist of money. Maybe I should go to a stylist and let them help me come up with some cute up dos that would really complement my look without me having to cut my hair short? Do I have to surrender to the fact that I will never have great hair?

  36. QUESTION:
    Hair Growing Tips? Any suggestions?
    Ok before I get into this I understand that your hair will only grow the maximum of half of an inch each month and i don't want to get all of this it all depends on your genes and all of that "be patient" talk. I'm just looking for some things that could possibly help speed up the process a little bit and the things not to do. Ok so my hair is just a bit down my shoulders and i want it down to the bottom of my rib cage. I'm setting a goal to have it at that length by April because I know it is a long process and i don't want to get my hopes up. Anyways now that you know about that the first thing I did was trim off the split ends so that it can grow healthy. I've stopped using all blow dryers, flat and curling irons. I am also been only using 2 products after i wash my hair ( i wash it every other day because it gets oily quickly)- I use the organix anti breakage coconut oil serum and a few sprays of CHI Keratin mist. For shampoo I use Aussie Volume Shampoo and Aussie Moist Conditioner and 2-3 times a week I use Aussie 3 minute miracle deep conditioner. I also have been mixing egg yoke and leaving it in for a protein mask and washing it out 15 mins later with cold water and today I just massaged my scalp with warm olive oil and washed my hair after. Also, i massage my scalp regularly to stimulate the follicles. Before I go to bed I brush my hair. Another thing i do is every time i want to style my hair i put in either a braid or a loose bun or pony tail.

    So if you have any more tups that could possibly help please write your suggestions below! Also if you think you could tell me how long it will take me to grow my hair to the length I want it.

    Thanks and have a great day

    • ANSWER:
      Eat healthier, more proteins, drink more water, and take Biotin.

  37. QUESTION:
    What does the CHI keratin mist do? How do i use it?
    Do i use it before i flat iron and curl my hair like a heat protectent? I already have the 44 Iron guard, so do i use this when my hairs wet? or dry? I have super curly thick hair, looking to grow it really long and healthy, on the brink of recovery from years of chemicals and bleaching, ironing, tons of heat! Will this help it grow healthier, in turn making it grow faster? I read the bottle and all it says is "leave in strengthing treatment: Directions: spray through hair evenly. Proceed with styling."

    I have TWO huge bottles (12oz) i bought them at TJ maxx. Only 6.00.

    So what do i do with them.???
    Thanksss!!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Chi Keratin Mist will make your hair really strong and healthy. This will help your hair grow stronger, but not any faster than usual. It also adds shine and smoothness.
      You should still use the 44 Iron Guard as a heat protection spray if you use heat styling tools. That way, your hair won't become damaged.
      You spray the Keratin Mist on damp hair, and then blow dry and straighten your hair :)
      And once your hair is dry, use the Chi 44 Iron Guard before flat ironing.
      :] I hope I helped!

  38. QUESTION:
    what to do with very damaged hair?!?
    Alright so starting about 2 years ago i got the Brazilian blowout (which is a kind of keratin treatment)...and since then about 3 times a year i have gotten either that or the keratin treatment alone. Anyway they arent supposed to be bad for your hair, the keratin is actually supposed to make it healthier, but it is a straightening chemical treatment. Starting at about that time i also started to get highlights but i dont get them like every 2 months or anything more like every 4-5 months. I also straighten my hair almost every day because naturally it is super super curly. Recently i have noticed a ton of breakage on the top layer of my hair that some of the pieces are only about 5 inches long when my hair is to the middle of my back. I also have a ton of split ends. But basically i have noticed that my hair seems to be getting shorter because its breaking and splitting. I know i should get a hair cut and i probably will before school starts again but is there anything i can do or a product i can use to help repair it and make it grow longer?? Im considering extentions but they are about 0 where i go and i dont want to be spending so much when i dont have to if my hair would just grow. Thanks!
    Also i do use a heat protectant when straightening. And i know it is very damaging anyway but honestly i am not going to stop straightening it or getting treatments because my hair is out of control without them.

    • ANSWER:
      Use coconut oil and leave it on over night, its really good for damaged hair use it once a week and you will see the difference in your hair.xx

    i have the worst hair in the world!!!?
    I am 11 years old and all my life i've had the worst hair ever. Its thick,coarse,dry,curly and always frizzy. I can only where it down when i flat iron it but i'm young so i don't want to do it much because it could ruin my hair when i get older. Im not African american so i don't know why i have this hair!(no offense) I have looked EVERYWHERE for solutions and found none. I had a keratin treatment and it took an inch of hair away! I want something semi-permanent that wont make me have to have where my hair straghit everyday. No chemicalls. Something that lets me grow my hair longer! .I would LOVE wavy controlable smooth hair. Please help. Ive cried over this sooo much. I feel like this is my only problem and that I could do anything if i didn't have it.!!

    • ANSWER:
      DONT LISTEN TO THEM TAKE MY ADVICE I HAVE THE SAME HAIR AS YOU AND I KNOW WHAT WORKS.

      So yeah i remember asking this same question on here when i was 11! And 3 years later(im 14 now) im practically an expert on dry curly hair

      Please listen to me i know what im talking about lol

      Okay first of all if you want to be able to wear your hair natural and have good curls you have to stop straightening it. It damages your curl pattern dries it out and makes it uneven

      Second of all stop getting treatments done to your hair. I have tried ALL OF THEM Relaxing keratin kerastace blow out They all are going to mess up your curl pattern and make it grow out slower

      Third of all if you can (this is what helped me the most) Look on the backs of all your hair products and if they have any unnatural ingredients like cetyl alcohol or parabens stop using them. I have tried the most expensive products like kerastace morrocan oil b and b and they all dried out my hair because of the unnatural ingredients. I can reccomend several good all natural products

      Anything by the brand shea moisture- They sell it at walgreens for around 10$ a product. They work amazing they changed my life. I have dry hair and after using them my hair is soft and silky. They are 100% all natural and organic and the main ingredients are shea butter and coconut oil. You must try their curl enhancing smoothie. Trust me it will change your hair for life

      Deva Curl gel ( i dont really like their conditioners but their gel works amazing. Just put the tinyest amount in your hair (After you put a leave in conditioner in it!) and scrunch away

      And another huge thing you can do is get a GOOD haircut. If you can afford it go to the best CURLY HAIR salon you can find. Dont go to a normal salon that cuts curly and straight hair because you want to get your haircut by somebody who specializes in curly hair. My haircut cost 100$ and that sounds really expensive but it was the best haircut i ever got and made my hair alot more managable and flat. When you get your hair cut make sure they DONT thin out the ends. It makes it poofy and if you want flat hair get some long layers

      alright so ive done enough typing for today but if you want more advice email me at a23454@live.com or chat me cus i have alot more hair secrets hehe

  41. QUESTION:
    Fastest Way To Remove Brazilian Keratin Treatment From Hair?
    Alrighty I got the Brazilian Keratin Treatment for the first time in Aug 2009 after bleaching my hair in April 2009. Once that began to fade both the color growing out, and the Keratin not being as strong I decided to bleach my hair again and get another keratin treatment in November 2009. It is now June 2010 and I am STILL unable to remove ALL of the keratin treatment. I know that doing it on colored hair will make it last longer but 6-7 months after is a bit ridiculous! Anyways, My hair is naturally between 3B-3C. I have S curls and few O curls. I am multiracial mixed with biracial hair. (Looks of someone white and black) My sister has more 4B typed virgin hair and her treatment has been completely out for a while now. I've been washing my hair with straight table salt mixed in with my RedKen Smooth Down Shampoo and Conditioner. Followed by The RedKen buttertreat, and leave in Garniea Fructics conditioner, hair milk, and Shea Butter conditioning and strengthening products. Those help rehydrate my hair from the harmful table salt. Is there any other way to speed the removal up? I'm tired of looking like I have two toned hair. My roots to my neck is back to my natural curl, yet the ends and from my neck to a few inches past my bra strap is straight! I just want my hair back to it's normal state so I can wear it down again without it looking stupid!

    • ANSWER:
      It would take about 3-6 months till the effects of it fade.Though i must tell you that most naturals that do this don't get straight ends obviously the damage was done by the color-Brazilian keratin combo.Keep doing what your doing and lets see if it will get better after 3-6 months.

    I have curly hair and i hate it! How can i make it straight?
    I have curly hair mmm I've heard people calling my hair "cupid curls" whatever you call it I hate it :( I can't wear it loose because it gets fluffy and annoying and looks terrible. I straightened my hair about almost a year ago and it is never straight! I have to iron my hair often to make it straight and soft I don't mind doing this but I do mind is that my hair grows out curly so when straighten it my roots are fluffy and curly and the rest of my hair is straight. I can't afford getting my roots getting straightened very often I do it once every 6 months to keep my hair from getting hurt so much and making it worse. I got the CHI transformation system from my hairdresser who did my hair and it worked on my hair but not my roots I heard about the keratin treatment but I got freaked about the cancer rumors :/ please help! I don't want japanese straight hair all I want is manageable hair not curly I'll settle with wavy

    • ANSWER:
      - get it permed straight
      - use a straight hair shampoo
      - use a straightening cream when you get out of the shower
      - dry your hair in sections
      - apply hairspray in the end
      - when drying your roots use a wide tooth comb and hold the hair straight with the comb when you blow dry.
      - you could try a wet to straight flat iron (I've never used one, so I don't know if they work)
      take a look at the sites below...

  43. QUESTION:
    Help! My hair is completely FRIED?
    I used to have very long and very curly hair, which i died multiple times... and then i became friends with the straightener, which in the end caused my hair to lose its curl and turn more wavy/into a rats nest.

    I knew my hair was extremely over-processed but i went ahead and got thermal reconditioning (japanese hair straightening) so that my hair could be straight instead of in between. the bottom half of my hair had been previously bleached with highlights and youre not supposed to do the process on bleached hair but the lady said that it had been long enough and it would be fine.

    WELL SHE LIED... now that part of my hair is ABSOLOUTELY fried, its been about 2 months now.
    I have been using conditioning masks, nightime leave in conditioner, daily conditioner, keratin conditioner, k pak shampoos and conditioner... but its not helping.

    What should i do? A one inch trim will not remove all the damage but i am also trying to grow my hair really long (it currently sits below the breast) Is it impossible to grow it out and trim it slowly so that it they eventually are gone, or will it keep splitting and do i have to cut it all off at once and lose my length completely? Also the top of my hair which is less processed looks very nice and healthy with the straightening... so if i get it done again after my split ends grow out will it cause the same problem?

    Keratin treatment and scruching?
    I want to get the keratin treatment done to my hair, but I also want to know if I can scrunch it after.
    I have very wavy hair and frizz galore! The thing is I don't want my hair stick straight all the time, if I scrunch it will I get nice waves? or it won't do anything, but stay straight?
    Also when the hair starts growing can you see the curly growing in?
    and one more thing for the first three days can I put it up? I know I can't wash it, but I can't stand greasy hair down.
    Please help and no information about the chemicals, I read and heard about that already. I just want to know what I asked. thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I am trained in the Marcia BKT. There are 3 different formulas. I would use the original formula and instead of waiting to wash after 4 days, wash on the 2nd or 3rd day. It may not last as long though. Everyones hair reactes differently. Some get very straight and some maintain some curl. Everyone will end up with frizz free, soft, shinier hair. Marcia also has an advanced formula that can be washed the next day but it only lasts 6-8 weeks and the cost is the same. You might want to try that.

      Keratin treatments do not grow out but gradually wash out so you won't see curl regrowth at the root.

      You can not pull your hair up, sweat excessively, swim/get it wet, tuck it behind your ears, use clips, band, or Bobby pins in it...1 day for advance formula & 4 days for original. This is very important to follow or you will put marks in your hair.

  45. QUESTION:
    How can I get my natural african american hair straight?
    My hair is really curly and kinky. I don't want any harsh chemicals! It's a little past my shoulders when straightened. I want to grow it a couple inches longer. So what works to get it straight and silky without breaking it off and making split ends? Should I go to a Dominican Hair salon? Should I get a Brazilian Keratin Hair Treatment? Are those okay for people my age?(I'm 13) Or do I just need a better flat iron? Please help!

    • ANSWER:
      Dominicans use a LOT of heat products, Keratin releases fermaldahyde (sp?) and is bad for your lungs, I think flat ironing is the best option. Your flat iron may be able to do it. It's all in the technique. Check out this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffjZQQIGelg&feature=BFp&list=WL964EC0269104D29B&index=5 she got her hair super straight

It has been 4 months since my last treatment and my hair has grown out of control and very curly and frizzy (as if it needs the keratin again) and I don't know if trimming it would help or should I cut all of it to allow new hair to grow ( I'm a guy so it shouldn't be a problem).

  47. QUESTION:
    I need help with permanently straightening my hair?
    Hi, I am 14 and I have hair brown curly hair. When I was little, my curls used to be really soft, almost straight hair. As I grew older my hair got worse and worse, up to the pont where I feel embarrased EVER leaving my hair down or semi-down, therefore I never do. If I let it down and shake it a bit, it makes this HUGE mass of Frizz and dead curls! I use Frizz Ease, wash my hair 2 times a week and I keep it moisturized and hydrated so I guess its not the climate or anything, its just me, my hair is simply like this. I don't use hot metals to straighten it either (only use them like 3 times a year for special occasions). I finally came to the conclusion that I HAD TO PERMANENTLY STRAIGHTEN MY HAIR. I know, it damages it and stuff but its taking too much time, money, and lowers my self-esteem. I need advice on what to use. I can't do the Japanese straightening thing because its like 0 and I doubt my mom will spend that on my hair -.-" SO I was think of using a hair relaxer? Are hair relaxers permanent? Does your hair come back to normal after a while? If so, how fast, and if not, which product can leave your hair straight for a couple of weeks or months and then return it back to normal? If there is an alternate product to hair relaxers that can straighten my hair for a long time even when it gets wet, I want to know about it. Down give me tips on how to decrease frizz (trust me, I've asked a lot of people and been on millions of websites). I want to know the consequences but honestly, I am to a point right now, where ANYTHING would be better than this hair. I AM SICK of wearing buns, braids, hair ties, etc. I even tried the Keratin thing which did not work at all and boy was it expensive! I know there will be consequences to these chemical straightening products but I can't deal with it anymore. I really appreciate your time and advice :) I really need someone who has experience. Thankyou!

    • ANSWER:
      depending on the strength of th relaxer, your hair will not go back to normal.. If the relaxer is mild, it will go back in some months. If strong,the relaxed hair will never return to it's original texture,even if it gets curly when wet it will still be different... it sounds like you need a strong one. try using a no lye relaxer..they are much less harsh and damaging to your hair

    What are some good daily moisturizing leave-ins WITHOUT protein?
    I have very bad hair breakage, and originally we (my hairdresser and I) thought it was a protein deficiency, however as I began using protein treatments, it became obvious that this was not the problem, as the protein was making my hair TOO strong, causing it to become brittle and break off even more. She has now suggested I begin using moisturizing treatments without protein. Also, what are some things I myself can do to help my hair grow? Does drinking a lot of water really help (I hardly drink any water, as it makes me feel nauseated, and I know that sounds weird but it's true, but for healthy hair I suppose I could stomach it.)

Does Lost Hair Grow Back

Ever had a great idea for a haircut ruined by having too much cut off? Or realized that perfect hairstyle is only perfect on someone else, not you? We've all been there, trying to figure out how we can hide a less than perfect hair cut long enough for it to fix itself. Here are a few simple tips to help make your hair grow faster to help you with those troublesome hairstyle mistakes.

The first thing is to understand that maintaining healthy and growing hair is a process, like anything else. Everything in your body is connected and everything starts with what you eat. Eating a balanced diet helps give your body everything it needs to help grow hair. Plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables will ensure you get the right vitamins and minerals to help your hair grow long and healthy.

The next step is to exercise regularly. Exercise helps every system in your body function better. Increased activity helps your lungs and heart, which in turn provide more oxygen and better circulation. Proper exercise increases circulation which in turn will carry more oxygen and nutrients to your scalp. Increased circulation also helps you maintain the hair you have, by preventing hair loss from malnutrition or vitamin deficiencies. And the more hair you have in your head, the faster you can have that thick and full hairstyle to cover up a botched clipping.

  2. QUESTION:
    Hormone Issue - will my lost hair grow back and ever be thick again?
    In the past 6 months I have lost so much hair from my head I am so scared. Drs told me to take gelatin. I started Biotin and Hair Vitamins but still handfuls daily. Its a pcos hormonal imbalance getting worse. I want to ask if anyone ever fixed hormones by converting to an immaculate lifestyle and regained/grew back thier lost hairs. I did before but that was before hair was a problem, I noticed today my head felt cold outside. I never noticed that before. I still look fine but feel like I lost way too much. It wont be stopping anytime soon if its been doing it this long. Most recent Dr. prescribed metformin but I didn't start it yet because of the natural alternatives out there and I don't want to overload my system with to many treatments. What did those who grew hair back do?

      take the metformin, I have PCOS as well, but no hair loss, just the opposite, the natural alternatives to metformin can't do what it does. Even if you lose you

  5. QUESTION:
    when you shave does your hair really grow back thicker?
    Many people I know believe that when you shave your legs or arms that the hair grows back thicker and darker. I don't understand why it would. Also, I've heard that when you shed hair from your scalp, each hair you lose grows back three more strands of hair. Another wive's tail that I question.

    • ANSWER:
      First of all the shedding hair is totally shenanigans, I wouldn't believe that for a second.

      As for hte shaving hair, I believe it is a wives tale to get their kids to look clean :) Hair growth is caused by chemical hormones in your body, IDK why shaving would effect them. Plus, I don't see any difference when I shave =

    I lost A LOT of hair after dyeing it twice in the past month, will my hair grow back??
    My hair was bleached for the first time this month but the end result was orange so the next day i had it dyed again. now, my hair is very damaged and i lost a lot of it! every time i wash it, lots of hair comes out. I am only eighteen so will the hair i lost grow back? Also, is there anything i can do to make my hair more healthy?

First thing is get a trim and get some of that bad stuff off the ends, next pick up some nexxus emergencee' , it will bond the weak hair and stop the breakage and also you need a great shampoo and conditioner ask your stylist when you get that trim. Good luck and remember if you are good to your hair it will be good to you. be more careful next time and always see a professional to have a color service. take care of that hair!!!!!!

  7. QUESTION:
    Does Hair Lost by Scalp Problems Really Grow back? I'll choose the best answer tonight, ready?
    I've had, for like a year, a very itchy and oily scalp; I scratched my head day and night, and it is still there (esp in certain places). Now I've noticed that my hair is being lost, especially in the front; everybody noticed also.

    Now I want to know three things:

    1- Does hair, lost by either STRESS or SCALP problems, grow back after the stress goes away and the scalp is treated?
    2- Can wearing a cap worsen the matter? Will hair grow back if I stop wearing the cap all the time?
    3-Do you know of anyone who LOST his or her hair and it, by treatment or naturally, GREW back later on?

    Your information is appreciated!

    (I'll pick up the best answer, tonight.)

    • ANSWER:
      Try this:
      Take a handful of fresh lemon balm (it is an herb you can probably purchase at the grocery, you could also try wet lemon balm tea bags: alternately, you could purchase and nourish a lemon balm plant, and harvest as needed) Anyway, rub it in circular motions against your scalp.

      Mmmm. Aromatherapy will help soothe your stress and balance your body

      Nutrients and minerals should nourish your follicles and stimulate new hair growth. The itchy and oily scalp should abade, especially if you try "shampooing" with honey and rinsing with two quarts cool water and a few drops of vinegar, and maybe a sprig of bruised lemon balm.

      I think wearing a cap all day, every day promotes an environment that is not optimal for the hair. It traps heat, moisture, sweat, etc and does not let your hair filter and interact with the wind, and air. But wearing one sometimes should be fine.

      Yes, my hair thinned in handfuls postpartum; now it is full, healthy and strong. :-)

      Oh yeah, you could also drink lemon balm tea with honey. :-)

      Happy hair growing!

  10. QUESTION:
    Does the hair grow back once lost ??
    I mean hair growing back in the bald spots or getting the thickness back ...assuming tht the person is not completely bald?? Answer will be greatly appreciated

    • ANSWER:
      Why did you lose the hair? Did you have chemotherapy? In that case it will grow back (hope you didn't). If it fell out because baldness runs in your family then I'm afraid it won't. There are many products out there to prevent hair loss, but I don't think any of them work unless they can change your genes (they can't!) They are a waste of money as far as I'm concerned. Luckily, baldness is in, and you can just go for that Charles Barkley look! The girls will love it! Best.

  12. QUESTION:
    Does hair that is lost due to stress grow back?
    If someone loses hair because of alot of stress, does hair stop falling (not just shedding), or does it regrow in those areas once the stress is gone?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, it grows back. I had a very stressful job a few years ago and began losing hair around my temples. Sometimes when you're under constant stress your adrenal glands go into over-drive--and stay there--and cause all sorts of problems.

      Once I got out of the stressful job and took supplements to restore my adrenal glands, my hair grew back and everything was fine.

  13. QUESTION:
    Has anyone been able to grow back hair lost & grow it thicker?
    What did you do?
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Falling out of the hair is a frequent sequel of acute diseases, especially fevers. But then the loss is only temporary, and it grows again when convalescence is complete. Early loss of hair is often constitutional and hereditary, and sometimes it is due to affection of the hair bulbs by disease. Ringworm rarely attacks the scalp of adults, though it does occur on the face and body. There is, however, a disease in which the hair falls out in spots (Alopecia areata), Usually the hair grows again as vigorously as before. Other major known causes are ph imbalanced shampoo and detergents, poor scalp hygiene, stress is major psychological factor, Hormonal imbalance, Hard Water and allergies.

      General Treatment which was used before 100 year.-
      With most people the scalp secretes oily matter enough to keep the hair glossy and soft, and in this case there is no need for hair-grease of any kind. The head should be washed with soap once every two or three weeks, and oftener if the secretion of the sebaceous glands is very profuse. But too frequent washing impoverishes the hair. When the hair falls off rapidly, and is not replaced, the following hair-wash will be found of great use. Take of

      Oil of almonds one ounce;
      Olive oil one ounce;
      Strong liquor ammoniae one drachm;
      Tincture of cantharides half drachm;
      Essence of bergamotte ten drops;
      Spirit of wine two ounces;
      Distilled water to six ounces;
      A little of the wash to be rubbed into the hair roots every night.

      Homeopathic Treatment

      Natrum muriaticum [Nat-m]
      Has the symptoms of easy falling out of the hair; it falls out when touched or combed. This is quite frequently seen in nursing home. Hair falling in children.
      Carbo vegetabilis has falling of hair after parturition or severe illness.
      Sepia has losing of hair after chronic headaches. During menopause.
      Phosphorus. [Phos]
      Bald spots on the head, which are dry and scaly, are characteristic of **Phosphorus. Dandruff, roots of hair get gray and the hair comes out in bunches. ** Graphites cures bald spots on the sides of the head. The head sweats easily. The most important remedy in alopecia areata.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Alex,

      Baldness is often stated as having no hair or lacking hair where it often grows, especially on the head. The most common form of baldness involves progressive hair thinning and is called androgenic alopecia or "male pattern baldness".

      You can be perfectly healthy and it affects men of all ages.

      Due to huge advancements in technology you can now regrow your hair naturally, I've heard great things about modern treatments which cost relatively small amounts and a work collegue is currently getting great results.

      Check out the link below Alex.

      Don't worry about your hair loss, you can overcome this.

      Best wishes

  16. QUESTION:
    I Lost Alot Of My Hair And I Was Trying To Find Out What I Could Do To Grow My Hair Back?
    Give Me Some Names Of Hair Supplies I Could Use To Make My Hair Grow Back Kinda Fast I Lost Alot Of My Hair.
    If I Keep My Hair Braided For A While Will My Hair Grow Back Fast.
    Im A African American Girl.

    • ANSWER:
      Go to Afro-Amer hair website, they have tons of tips & suggestions there more than YA HAIR.

      Your hair is the most fragile, so you need to take care of it with TLC, they break and get damaged easily.

      When you're losing hair, your hair is crying for help and it's time to stand back & figure out what you've done to get your hair in that situation, so it won't happen again.

      So many reasons why you have hair loss:

      Supplements, steroids, hereditary,hair dyes perming, straightening, medications with testosterone, certain antidepressants, menopause, anti-acne, and too much of everything. Add to that the 7,000 + toxics found in your home, plus pollution found outdoors. Your body is crying for help!

      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? 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.

  17. QUESTION:
    Lost hair now growing back in - What to do with it?
    I dyed my hair WAY to much when I was in my teenage/early adult years. And I started to lose my hair because of it. I actually lost quite a bit of hair.

    Anyway, then I got pregnant, and didnt dye my hair in almost 2 years, and its starting to grow back in. The hairs that are regrowing are like the size of my pinky finger.

    I cant tie my hair back because these hairs are still there and it looks horrible. I have a bit of a cowlick thing going on, and the hairs kind of stick out. I really dislike it.

    What can I do about this? I was thinking of getting side swept bangs. Do you think that would work with camoflauging them or make them stand out more?

    Any other suggestions are really appreciated!

    • ANSWER:
      Try a side parting and waxing them down so you have a slick hair style and can tie the rest of your hair back.

  18. QUESTION:
    How can I grow back hair that was lost through old age?
    I am 45 years of age.
    Do you guys have any advice on how to grow back hair that was lost?

    Products? Food? Vitamins? Etc.

    • ANSWER:
      There are medical treatments out there that can grow back some of the hair you lost but you won't know how much will be restored until you try it.

      Be very skeptical of home remedies, herbal supplements, and alternative holistic medical treatments because they are usually silly, foolish, and have NOT been proven to work in human clinical studies. There's a lot of information out there regarding hair loss but most is based on junk or pseudo-science.

      I would recommend a daily regimen of finasteride, 5% minoxidil, and 2% ketoconazole shampoo. It has been clinical proven in human studies to actually work but you should see a dermatologist first (approx. for an office visit if you don't have insurance). You can find credible and reliable information about treatments that work at the links below. If it's not listed on PubMed then don't trust it.

  19. QUESTION:
    Lost some hairs while using a brush on wet hair, will they grow back again?
    I noticed when using a brush on my wet hair (after washing tonight) that I lost more hair than normal after washing it. After I realised that the brush was causing it, I then used a wide tooth comb. Although I still have a full set of hair I can't take it for granted as I am a male in his late twenties. Will the hairs that I lost due to brushing grow back eventually or has the damage been done?

    • ANSWER:
      Dude, you lose hairs all the time. The life span of a hair is anywhere from 2 to 4 years. It dies, falls out, and grows back in. The hairs you lost from using the brush were most likely broken off in the mid shaft or root area. So that little tuft of hair left over will continue to grow out. Even if you pulled those strands out by the papilla they would grow back. But that's highly unlikely since hair is in its weakest state when its wet.

      Permanent damage can be experienced if you damage the hair follicle. Like if you wear a tight hat all the time or a tight ponytail. Constant stress and pressure on the follicle can cause the hair to never grow back.

  20. QUESTION:
    If we lose hair, does it grow back?
    Like I know we lose hair when we shower/bath but once its lost does it grow back? Or do we forever go bald.

    • ANSWER:
      We all shed like cats, depends how much you're shedding. If you've experienced hair loss for OTHER REASONS, unless you figured out what was causing for your hair loss, they MAY NEVER GROW BACK, but if you knew the 'cause' and 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.

      Other reasons why that happens:

      Supplements ( billions are wasted and could hurt your lungs, liver, organs), steroids, hereditary, hair dyes, perming/relaxers, straightening (have read many on YA HAIR, and have responded to them since 2009), http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ByAudience/ForWomen/ucm118527.htm
      diet, having babies (yes I read twice it happened to them), stress, medications with testosterone, certain antidepressants, menopause, anti-acne, and too much of everything.
      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.

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.

  21. QUESTION:
    do the loose hairs we lose grow back again or what happens with da place the loose hair was?
    hi,i have long hair and months ago i discovered i had loose hairs i know im not going bald or anything but my question is do the hairs grow back from the last hair that got loose or what?and my other question is i shampoo 2 times while i shower and im wondering is that bad 4 my hair?btw i use TRESemme

    • ANSWER:
      People loose about 50 to 100 hairs per day. It is natural. New hair grows back.
      Over washing isn't good for your hair......surfactants are really tough on your hair. This is the chemical that makes shampoo lather up. The lather isn't what cleans your hair, but it make us feel good about the shampoos that we use. The manufacturers ad this chemical to keep us coming back.....it's not good for us. Nutritional stores have shampoos with out this chemical. Some people over use the natural shampoos because there is no lather.
      Hope this helps.

    im 17 an in the last 2 weeks i noticed i lost alot of hair its still nice an thick but not how it used 2 be i used to blow dry my hair 2 times a day, an i think i got heat damage. Does hair grow back from heat damage?

    • ANSWER:
      At 17 years of age, natural hair loss can happen. I don't suggest balding, but stress can cause large amount of hair to fall out. To answer your qustion, yes, your hair will grow back, as long as the follicle hasn't been damaged. Wait 4 weeks and try to use low heat on the dryer. Avoid blowing the same area for more than you can count to 5. Keep the dryer moving. If the hair loss continues, please consult a doctor.

    How long does it take for hair to grow back after psoriasis treatment?
    I have scalp psoriasis. My case was not that bad though, I've been taking some special shampoos and hair oil for over a week. And it's working really well, it's almost gone. But I've lost some hair before the treatment and I've heard from SO many people that the hair would grow back when your scalp is back to normal. So how long would it take for the hair to grow back ?

    • ANSWER:
      Hair generally grows about 3/4 -1" per week to 10 days but it depends on the person.

  26. QUESTION:
    When you bleach your hair and a lot falls out, does it grow back?
    I bleached my hair about 6 months ago and I got at least a handful of hair that fell out and I can wrap the elastic around my ponytail an extra time because it's so much thinner. I'm still waiting for my hair to grow back, mostly was lost from the crown of my head.'

    Someone had told me that it NEVER grows back again after you bleach it and it falls out, is this true?

    • ANSWER:
      The reason it fell out was because the bleach was left in your hair too long and it basically "burned" (chemically) your hair out. It will grow back eventually but it will take longer because there was damage done to your scalp. Even when it does grow back it may not be as thick as before.

  27. QUESTION:
    Will I grow the hair back that I have lost after giving birth?
    I just recently started loosing hair by the handfuls...I was worried sick for a few days before I found out that it was perfectly normal to loose your hair starting about 12 weeks after birth. So I stopped worrying until today when I pulled my hair back in a pony-tail and noticed that you could actually see my scalp through my hair!!!! What can I do?? Will it grow back? Will Rogain for women work or is that too extreme????

    • ANSWER:
      It is totally normal to lose hair after giving birth. During pregnancy, hormones keep you from losing hair, and many women have thicker hair than usual while pregnant. Once you no longer have the pregnancy hormones, you begin losing hair by the handfuls because your body is now catching up with all the hair loss that didn't happen during the pregnancy. You don't need to treat this with rogain or anything, you will grow hair again naturally :)

  29. QUESTION:
    How can I make my dogs hair grow back?
    Ok, he is thyroid deficient. Had him on meds. Was on antibiotics for staph infection. Infection became little holes on his neck. Holes healed. Skin is still irritated and red. Hair lost on neck has not grown back. Looks like scar tissue? I don't know what to do! He needs his neck hair back! Also has spot on his tail where hair is gone. Is there any salve, tonic, cream...cure? Any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      If he's thyroid deficient, then he needs to stay on the thyroid meds forever, you can't stop them or all the symptoms will come back. If he's still on the meds, then he probably still has a skin infection & needs another round of antibiotics. Either way, the only way to get his hair to grow back is to fix the underlying problem.

    I havn't lost nearly all my hair, so I'm thankful for that, and I guess it should be shameful I'm even asking this question then, but

    I've got this slight bald spot running down the center of my head... which appeared after hair started coming out every morning... which appeared after a few months of chemotherapy...

    Will this bald spot grow back once I'm finished with chemotherapy?
    Nobody else in my family is bald/is balding.
    I'm 17, btw.

    • ANSWER:
      I've had 2 Aunt's, 1 grandmother, 1 nephew, a close friend and as we speak..my handsome husband, who have all gone through chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Multiple chemo's.

      Everyone of them lost their hair completely, and not only did their hair grow back...it grew back in darker and thicker for all of them EXCEPT my husband.

      My husband has gone through 4 different types of chemo's and is currently taking a new chemotherapy he has never had before., and he has not lost any of his hair from anywhere on his body.

      He did lose his hair during radiation treatment (he has Brain Cancer), which has never fully grown back in. However, in time it will fill in.

      You might want to try cutting your hair to even things out. This way you might not even see it as well, which might make you feel a bit better.

      I wish you the very best in life, and my prayers are with you.

  31. QUESTION:
    How long does it take for your hair to grow back?
    When you have a loose hair and it comes out when you're coming it, how long does it take for that hair to grow back, to like your shoulder?
    I have thick hair but I don't know how because i lose so much of it everyday, just from washing and combing it, so how long does it take because it is still thick?
    Also I'm trying to grow it and I heard olive oil helps prevent it from breaking but I massaged it into my scalp, which I now know was a bad idea, and quite a bit of hair fell out.
    I'm really paranoid that my hair is thinner just from that, but then I thought I lose so much hair everyday and it's fine so that wont make that much difference. Even if it did though, how long would it take for those hairs I just lost to grow back to about shoulder length? thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      ok well your hair grows about 1/2 per month so if you add that up you have your answer!

  32. QUESTION:
    does your hair grow back when it naturally falls out?
    i heard that a healthy head can lose up to 100-150 hairs a day. so after you hair falls out, does it grow back? or is there a certain age when it stops growing back?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, hair regularly falls out. "Dead hairs" normally grow back. Some people go bald, where hair gradually falls out without growing back. It really has nothing to do with age, as some people go bald in their 20s or 30s, some not untill their 60s or 70s, and some never go bald.

  34. QUESTION:
    How do I get my hair to grow back?
    For years I have been pulling my hair back and leaving it in bun because I don't have enough time to comb it in the mornings. Now I am losing hair in the front because of this. I know I have to stop putting it in a bun so how do I get my hair to grow back?

    Oh yeah, I'm losing hair in the back too. FYI, my hair is still natural not processed.

    • ANSWER:
      You have to stop putting your hair in these tight buns. I suggest going to get it straightened and wearing it down for most of the time for at least 6 months to a year. Put in loose bun when you really need to. To make bald spots grow hair back quickly start taking Biotin vitamin pills!

      Biotin makes hair grow very fast!Good luck

  36. QUESTION:
    Is it possible for hair to grow back if I lost it? (because of depression)?
    I'm not sure how long I was losing hair but I noticed it when I was 17. I am now 22 and the hair on the top of my head is very thin and I have a bald spot in the back. I'm guessing it is due to depression (didn't fully realize I was depressed until 19 years old; I will get help soon). I shave my head because of the bald spot and thinning hair.

    So I'm wondering if it's still possible for my hair to regrow a bit or for it to go back to normal like it was before I was 17 or whatever? If so, how or what do I need? I don't want to use pills or things like rogaine that I have to use forever. I want to use natural things.

    I don't know what to use like shampoo or whatever. I don't even know if it's possible for my hair to grow in those areas anymore since it's been like this for 5 years and I haven't taken care of my depression yet. Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      One of the interesting things is that hair lost is mostly not something genetic and the same goes for your case. It is possible to regrow your hair and make your hair stronger. To do this you will probably have to follow a program of a daily hair treatment with home made remedies, avoid stress and eat proper food. I would suggest you to take a look at the products that are described in link below.

  38. QUESTION:
    I lost so much hair! will it grow back?
    I'm 14 years old, I just started high school a few weeks ago and I haven't been sleeping properly, or eating well. I've also been having a lot of stress. Then starting from a few days ago, i've been loosing LOTS of hair. Its kinda scaring me. I'm even afraid to shower. My hair was REALLY thick before but now its not thick anymore! I've been trying to sleep more, eat properly, and have less stress. Do you think the hair I've lost will grow back?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, it'll grow back. It's called alopecia. Just relax though. It'll just take a little bit of time. Hair grows about 1/2 inch a month. It sounds like you are less stressed now, so that's good! Keep it up!

    how long does it take for a baby's hair to grow back after falling out?

    • ANSWER:

  44. QUESTION:
    I used the ortho evra birth control and lost alot of hair, will it grow back?
    I used to have really thick hair, and over the past year it out started thinning out really badly and then i did some research and realized it was from the patch. Ive been off of it for about 5 months and my hair has just now finally stopped falling out. I just wanna know if it will ever grow back?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't stress too much. Not only will your hair probably grow back now that you're off ortho evra birth control, but high stress can cause temporary hair loss. Several other factors can cause hair loss and if your hair doesn't grow back or starts to fall out again, you should talk to a doctor.

      In the meanwhile, there are some things you can do to prevent and reduce further hair loss as well as promote hair health. One of the easiest ways to reduce hair loss is through your diet. Make sure your diet is rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B, silica, calcium, and iron to reduce or prevent hair loss. These minerals and vitamins can be obtained through a balanced diet.Some foods you should add to your diet to increase hair health include: fruits, vegetables, dairy, lean healthy meats, fish, legumes, unsaturated fats, and water. Try to avoid high amounts of fatty foods and high amounts of Vitamin A in your diet as these have been shown to cause hair loss.

      Also, keep your hair healthy by avoiding chemical and heat processes. Let your hair rest (no chemical treatments or heat processes) for the time being, and see if that helps with your temporary hair loss. Chemical treatments, pollution, hair-styling products and blow-drying have not been found to directly cause hair loss, but they can dry and weaken hair, increasing breakage and perpetuating hair loss. So take control and take care of your hair!

      However, for a personalized diagnosis to your hair loss, you really 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 and recommend appropriate treatment options. The consults at Bosley Medical are conducted free of charge so at the very least you receive the information you need to move forward in addressing your problem.

  45. QUESTION:
    Does nair make your hair grow back thicker?
    So, I am a guy, and when I was younger I had a small happy trail. I hated it. So I shaved it. Horrible idea. Now I have a bunch more hair, and I am only a sophomore in high school. I don't wanna shave ever again, and I cant bring myself to wax, and I am too self conscious to ask someone help me wax. So i was wondering if, after using Nair, your hair grew back thicker like after shaving? Or if it grew back as fast. This would be for my torso, lower to higher torso. Thanks.

    P.S: If there is any other ways to lose hair that will make it grow back thinner, and not cause me pain, then I would LOVE to know those!

    • ANSWER:
      No, it won't. I've never found a Nair product that actually works completely though. Good luck!

  49. QUESTION:
    what causes your hair to fall out when combing hair and does that hair you lose actually grow back?

    • ANSWER:
      There are many reasons why individuals experience hair loss.

      Some hair loss is normal and is a continuous process. Hair goes through a cycle of growth and then falls out so it can be replaced by a new hair. People normally lose between 50 and 100 hairs each day.

      Things such as combing, brushing and shampooing help the removal of hair on the verge of falling out, to make room for the new hair to grow.

      Excessive hair loss can happen as a result of:

      hormonal changes
      acute and chronic illnesses
      infections
      trauma and medication
      If you are experiencing extensive hair loss, you may want to talk with your doctor or dermatologist.

Does Hair Stop Receding

At last a hair loss treatment that is simple to use and actually clinically tested by a medical board, Caproxen not only proven to regrow your hair it is genuinely certified by the FDA.

Male pattern baldness is the common type of hair loss that develops in most men at some stage. It usually takes 15-25 years to go bald. However, some men go bald in less than 5 years. Typically, at first the hair begins to recede (thin) at the front. At the same time, the hair usually becomes thin on the top of the head. A bald patch gradually develops in the middle of the scalp. The receding front, and the bald patch on the top gradually enlarge and join together.

    How to stop hair thinning receding hair in men?
    Do any men or women know any hair products that actually work to stop hair thinning and receding hairline in men?

    • ANSWER:
      You can take things like Rogain or Propiecia (?sp on both), but they are only effective as long as you use them.

    • ANSWER:
      As i see you have thin hair and my answer will be about the thin hair part only to give you some ideas and tips about thin and thinning hair.

      First you need to decide if your hair is thin naturally or it became thin. Take a look at your parents, what kind of hair do they have, check your childhood pictures, if you had thin hair all the time it means that you have naturally thin hair.

      If your hair became thin >
      In this case thinness is a temporal hair condition. It happens if hair do not receive proper nutrition because of stress, too often hair coloring, waving with chemicals because of too hard water and lack of zinc

      If your hair is naturally thin >
      if mother nature rewarded you with thin hair and you do not like it, there are two ways to take care of it. First – proper hair care that will not let your thin hair become even thinner.

    How to stop hair loss around temples?
    I am 22 years old and for the last 3 years I have noticed my hair line slightly receding, especially around my temples. What can I do to either stop this or improve my hair in this region?

    • ANSWER:
      This natural treatment stopped loss and completely regrew my hair on my crown bald spot and where receded at front. Read this testimonial emailed me from a user of the treatment:
      Mo Sratum (on Yahoo! Answers). You can contact him.
      Subject: HAIR LOSS! OMG!
      Message: Hi,
      "You may remember me, Mo Satrum, the guy with the constant questioning about the hair loss, well I've been doing it for 2 months now and it's working wonders! My hair loss increased the first few weeks but it gradually slowed down and my hair is gradually going back to normal as it were before. I was always told that hair loss was genetic and you could do nothing about it, but you've proved everyone wrong and even I had my doubts before starting your treatment but I cannot describe how much you've turned my life around! Thank you I don't know where I would be without you"

      TREATMENT:
      Use extra virgin olive oil and massage into scalp. Then brush firmly so it irritates the scalp. OK if it reddens scalp but stop short of making scalp too sore. Do 110/120 strokes at beginning and gradually build up to more. You may be apprehensive about irritating scalp - believe me I was too. It will force new growth as it unplugs the blocked hair ducts that are cause of loss and prevent hair growth. They are sometimes experienced as painful small itching spots.
      As you brush some shedding/breakage may occur at first but will gradually stop then new hairs will appear and will be weak looking and sparse. Keep up the brushing and do not be concerned if brushing uproots them, as they WILL re-appear even stronger. The brush has to be a PALM HELD oval military brush with 1/2 " medium stiff boar bristles. See them on Amazon. e.g. DIANE Pure Bristle Military Brush (Model: 8114.).
      Leave oil on for 30 min then remove by washing using a totally non harming shampoo.
      SHAMPOOS are a main cause of hair loss as they have countless hair, scalp and even health harming harsh and toxic ingredients. Dandruff shampoos have even more toxic ingredients. See this site "Skin Deep Database" and look at shampoos and you will see which are the most harmful and others which are safe or only minimally harming. You will also see that many claimed by makers to be organic and natural are not and also have hair and scalp harming toxic ingredients.

      I truly believe I escaped the fate of my grandfather, my father, my two younger brothers and a teenage nephew through this treatment. All are, or were, completely, or very nearly bald. Treatment clearly disproves loss is genetic.

    • ANSWER:
      I feel you man!! Don't listen to all this people that tell you "oh just accept who you are" or "just shave it and you'll look better" screw them, they don't know what the feeling of losing hair is, but back to your problem. Unfortunately Rogaine works only on the vertex of your head (top back of your head) but Propecia works on the vertex and top middle of your head so if I were you I'll start taking propecia which its only going to keep what you have but it's better than to go bald. and you'll put a stop on your hair loss. It's expensive but monthly is nothing compare to your precious hair.

    How do I stop hair loss?
    I have starting to go thin on top. My hair line on my forehead is receding and there is a small bald patch on the top of my head. My hair all over my head does also appear slightly more thin that it used to. People have started to notice and make comments which are really getting me down. Im only 22 :(

    What are methods for stopping hair loss, and even if possible gaining back some of the hair i have lost? i have looked into propecia but there appear to be too many side effects.

    Please help.

    • ANSWER:
      I am a 32 years old man and recently noticed my hair started thinning. I was looking for some products that could treat the problem and read reviews about Regaine Extra Strength For Men. Its an amazing product, Regaine not only prevented further hair loss; my hair started re-growing. I would advice all men experiencing hair fall to try Regaine, it really works.

  14. QUESTION:
    Why is my hair thinning? Does physical training slow down or stop hair loss?
    Firstly I want to add I know hair loss is mainly due to genetics, which is why I am stumped here. I am a 26 year old, healthy male with good genes, no obesity, history of disease, nothing like that. My family on both sides all have great hair, and not one male is bald or even partially bald, everyone has a good head of hair. That being said, why is my hair thinning? It's very fine, and I cannot style it without it looking like im going bald on top. It also looks like my hairline is receding significantly, getting thinner in the corners of my hairline(in a Judd Law type pattern). I have been under constant stress for a long time, exceeding ten years, i've read that stress, diet, and lifestyle can cause hair loss, but I've also heard that's just a myth...

    I see a lot of celebrities on TV, athletes, just very active and seemingly under minimal stress, and most of these men have thick kennedy hair! I know there are ways to stop hair loss, like rogaine, propecia, and hair transplants, which all of these professional athletes and movie stars can afford to get, but what about the others that aren't rich? Why aren't they balding at all? I have friends who have bald parents, and they all have great hair, I'm sure they will go bald in the future, but they aren't showing any signs of it yet. Some of my friends are already bald, or are noticeablely thin due to genetics, and I understand there isn't much you can do about that, some people just go bald.

    Why am I going bald when it's not in my genes? I'm really self aware of it, and I obsess over it. I cannot find any hard, accurate answers on this subject. PLEASE HELP!

    • ANSWER:
      Hello,

      There are many things that can bring upon temporary hair loss from genetics (as you yourself have already stated) but also stress as well which is indeed an actual cause, alongside poor diet, hormone changes, etc., but the only way to know for sure is to schedule a free consultation with an expert physician, like those at Bosley Medical.

      These physicians are hair loss experts who can diagnose the specific cause of your case & recommend appropriate treatment options for the best chance of longterm success. The consults at Bosley Medical are conducted free of charge so at the very least you receive the information you need to move forward in addressing your problem. Best of luck to you

  15. QUESTION:
    How can I slow down my receding hairline?
    I have been using the following products daily

    Avalon organics Biotin Shampoo
    CountryLife Maxi hair tablets
    Saw Palmetto extract 320mg

    For about a year, I have been using these products and my hair didn't stop receding, but it certainly did slow down. Now over the past month my hair has started to recede much faster, so is there anything else I can try to slow this down.

    no scar tissue and receding hair line. hair is thinning but not gone yet still fighting it.

    • ANSWER:
      Con men get rich off of guys like you and me. There are drugs such as rogaine and monoxodil if you want to try them. Baldness is usually genetic, and if you're predisposed to male pattern baldness, the only way around it is a hair transplant. I bought a set a of hair clippers and said "Screw it!" and buzz my hair short.

  19. QUESTION:
    How to stop premature hair falll?
    I'm 18 yrs old and my hair has started to fall since about the last 3-4 yrs.
    I know it seems rather stupid that I 'm asking for help after suffering for such a long period but actually this has become quite SERIOUS!
    I have very thick, and when I say thick I mean "thick" (even each strand is a lot thicker than avrg.) black wavy hair.
    That is why I didn't really notice the rate of hair fall when it started. My hair has thinned out A LOT since then and it is since around the last year that I started getting worried. My ponytail looks way too thin,
    and the most problematic part is the receding hair line, which is apperaing in a patch in the frontal forehead zone.
    I'm really very worried and would seriously appreciate some natural way to regrow my fallen hair and altogether stop hair fall.
    P.S- I kinda also have a chronic dandruff problem too which dosen't seem to go away no matter what I do! so this obviously is another contributing factor to my hair fall problem!

  21. QUESTION:
    My hair wont stop falling off, can someone please help?
    My hair has been falling out a lot for the past year. I used to have a really thick head of hair and now its really thin, like the length of my hair is the only thing that was hiding the thinning but now you can see my scalp through the top long layer.( my hair is long considering im a guy, about 3-4 inches long.) I went to the doctors for blood work twice, and both times it showed nothing. Next i went to a dermatologist, they took a piece of my scalp and did a scalp biopsy, again nothing showed up. The only recommendation the doctor had left was to try rogaine. I thought it was just genetic but no one in my family really is bald, or had a receding hair line. I am also only 17, my hormone levels are fine also(bloodwork).I also thought it was stress for a while, but im not really stressed about anything, i just finished high school, and school wasnt stressing most of the time. and if it was school why did it start my last year when this was my easiest year. Its really depressing just seeing the hair fall day by day, and this is my last resort before i just buzz my hair to see if it'll grow back. Thanks a lot to whoever tried.

    I am only 17 years old yet I am loosing hair like crazy and have a receding hairline what do i do?!?
    I am only 17 years old yet I am loosing hair like crazy and have a receding hairline what do i do?!?
    I loose hair consistently and it feels very oily so I usually wash it every other day or every 3 days. At this rate, I'm afraid I'll be bald by 20. I want to not only stop this hair loss, but regain my lost hair and make it a bit more thick. what should i do?

    • ANSWER:
      I hope its just a hair condition and not a male patterned baldness. If I were you, I would stop washing my hair everyday, and cut your hair shorter, so its easier to take care of. Try to use a shampoo thats more natural, if you want to you can use rogaine and all those medications. I'm 23, I have a receding hairline since I was 20. I used rogaine and it slowed the process, but its still progressing. I used a few different shampoo some gives me the look of fuller hair but the hair is still losing. I bought propecia but i never tried it because it seems dangerous. I just feel bad for you because you have to face this when you're so young. I'm sure you're depressed. Just try your best, try everything you can to keep your hair. If they still want to leave you, there's nothing you can do, just let go. You hair is like your gf. If you cant keep them, you gotta let go.

    Is there anything a teenager can do to stop hair loss?
    For the majority of my life i've had long hair. I've recently decided to cut it short and style it into a faux-hawk. This was roughly three and a half months ago. I use a few different gels from schwarzkopf ( not at the same time obviously ) and i wash my hair with shampoo but i do not use conditioner. I also rarely comb my hair.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Matthew,

      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.

      http://www.iknowhair.com/hair-loss-shampoo

      I advice you to give Nioxin a try. In the web page above you will also find some other information than just shampoos, such as how to prevent hair loss and what are the common reasons of it..

      Hope this can help you.

    does a receding hairline mean your gonna go bald for sure?

I have thick hair other then the receding, its not noticable unless my hair is cut really short.

I have a lot of Dandruff as well. My hair has also become quite thin and my hairline has receded a bit. What maybe the reason for this? Anyways i will be having an appointment with my doctor. Will i be able to stop my hair fall through medication?PLZ reply.......

    • ANSWER:
      You could possibly have a thyroid problem or are suffering from a lack of nutrients, minerals, or vitamins that your body requires. You could be suffering from a great deal of stress too. I got a receding hairline and lost a lot of hair whenever I was under a great deal of stress for a long period of time.
      It's good that you are seeing the doctor, so that he can figure out what your exact condition is. When he does, there is a very good chance that your hair will grow back as mine did.

    • ANSWER:
      im sorry to say this but you might not be able to fix it
      it could be hereditary where it happens because of your genetics
      does your mothers father have hair? if he doesnt, then chances are you will go bald like him.

      my hair is receding at 16 and i have a similiar hairstyle to you aswel, i know how it must feel :/. its a silly world we live in where only roughly around 50% of males will lose all their hair due to genetics,not lifestyle. and the other lucky 50% will get to keep their hair (androgenic alopecia)

      There is nothing you can do to stop a genetically receding hairline, but there are stuff you can take to slow it down, like Propecia or finesterine

      although your hair loss could also just be your hairline maturing, and not male pattern balding. read this.

      hope iv helped :)

  32. QUESTION:
    I'm 17. Will my hair loss stop?
    I am 17, and for about a year now I have noticed that I shed a lot of hair. Sometimes, I notice that I shed a lot of hair in the shower, but other times not so much. I definitely have some sort of receding/mature hairline that has formed... I think it has gotten more pronounced since I started observing it. Also, I have gotten a comment or two on a "bald spot" on the back of my head. I have looked, and it sort of does look like my hair is thinning, but upon further observation I notice that the whole top of my scalp looks sort of thin. When I run my fingers through my hair, I can usually pull out hair anywhere (although I do notice that more seems to come out in the front). Also, I have an itchy scalp. I think that I have seborrheic dermatitis and I have been using Selsun Blue for a few months and that seems to have taken the scalp itching down a little.

    Do you think that my hair loss could be due to that, or is it just genetic? My grandpa on my mom's side is 70 and he practically has a full head of hair, and my mom's brother does have a full head of hair. My Dad, on the other hand, is completely bald at 45 and I think he started to lose hair in his twenties. Any thoughts on this? I am going to go to a doctor most likely and get it diagnosed. But this is really hurting my self-confidence... I have an exceedingly large head and I don't think it would look good shaved/bald.

    • ANSWER:
      It's a great idea to see a dermatologist, just to be sure that it isn't related to anything abnormal. Unfortunately, it's not completely uncommon for a young man around 17 to start to experience male pattern baldness, which is cause by good 'ole genetics.
      My advice would be to see a dermatologist, which you are already doing.
      You could also try eating an iron-rich diet, as iron deficiency can cause hair loss.
      Also, try switching to a sulfate free shampoo. Sulfates are found in almost all shampoos and they damage the hair follicle which causes hair loss.
      Talk to your dermatologist about topical treatments such as Rogaine. He/she will be able to give you great pointers.
      Hope this helps!

    I've started to notice that my hairline is receding and I want to do something about it. What is a good shampoo for me. I've found some shampoo that stops hair loss, but none that regrow hair. What would you recommend?

    • ANSWER:
      You found some shampoos that stops hair loss?

      Really!

      From Wikipedia: Shampoo is a hair care product used for the removal of oils, dirt, skin particles, dandruff, environmental pollutants and other contaminant particles that gradually build up in hair. The goal is to remove the unwanted build-up without stripping out so much as to make hair unmanageable.

      Even though most modern shampoos include a conditioning component, shampooing is frequently followed by the use of conditioners which ease combing and styling.

      None that will make hair grow, except eating all the healthy foods from Mother Nature.

      Foods for Healthy Hair
      http://health.yahoo.com/experts/healthie…

      You are what you eat. If you take supplements, steroids, straightening tools, those can slow down the normal growth of your hair. Your hair will grow back normally, once you eliminate the 'cause' of your hair, the reason why it's crying for help in the first place. Even the cheapest shampoo can do magic for your hair, if you're not 'abusing' it.

      BTW: Mane & Tall is another shampoo meant for horses. Horses don't abuse their hair, using heating tools, and they eat better than people, but it won't add more hair & make their hair longer faster.

    • ANSWER:
      You're probably the only one to notice. Women certainly won't hold it against you, some men look better bald. Just going with it shows confidence in yourself and that's a very attractive quality. Keep working more on being a nice person, focus on other people rather than yourself, keep the hair that you have (and the rest of you of course) neat and clean. If the photo we can see is of you you have a nice face. What more can i tell you? Its easy to say dont worry about it but dont worry about it.

      other hair
      if u backcomb 3 inches

      if u twist and rip 4 inches (good method)

      if u go natural u can start at any time but u mat or may not see dreads till 6 inches (best method)

And also I would like to know if there is anything to make my hair permanently straight? any suggestions, links to anything would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      Ok I am a former hairstylist...so here I go.

      The only thing you can do with a receding hairline is scalp massage. You want to move the skin when you are massaging..not rubbing the hair back and forth...a firm massage of the skin. You want to increase blood flow/circulation - this may help (in some cases). You should also get a proffesional 'scalp cleaners' the folicles/pores of the scalp often get 'cloged' with products, dead skin etc which can block the growth of new hair. Try that too.

      You can thicken hair with products only which will basically just coat the hair shaft making it appear thicker. IF you use products like these (or most styling products) you will once a week or two do a deep cleansing (Pantene Purify)to clean the shaft of all residue..then start over with the thicken shampoos. If you don't overtime hair will become dull looking with less managability because it will be over coated.

      You can't ever make your hair permenantly straight. You can straighten your hair with a solution which is exactly like a perm solution only with a different process - instead of using rollers when the solution is on the hair it is combed straight - go to a PROFFESIONAL for this. Any new hair that grows out will have curl so you will need to do the process again over time.

    I'm 19 and my hair is receding alot. I got four bottles of rogaine foam, and they weren't cheap. Has anyone used this before? does it grow back hair, or just stop the hair from falling out?

    • ANSWER:
      There are severeal forms of baldenss. If it is male pattern baldness (Androgenetic alopecia) then the hairloss 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 sides(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 as I buy the 90 pills. (89$ for 90)

    • ANSWER:
      Unfortunately your hair loss has been predetermined by your DNA. Usually hair loss is passed from the maternal side. If your mom's, dad is bald or has really thin hair that is what you can expect. If you have hair loss on your fathers side too, then you know it is inevitable.
      There are products on the market made for thinning hair, that helps keep what you have longer. Nioxin has several different formulas that produce some pretty good results. You can go to their website* to find a salon in your area that carries it. Any cosmetologist/ stylist working there will be able to recommend the best products for your hair type.
      Many times a build up of oils in the follicles can cause thinning as well. To make sure you are not getting that, you can shampoo every two weeks with a clarifying shampoo. Massaging your scalp will also increase the blood flow, keeping vital nutrients in the hair follicle and root.
      Also supplement your diet with a multivitamin, eat a well balanced diet and drink plenty of water.
      Doing all these things will help you retain your hair longer.
      There are surgeries available to transplant hair from the back of the head, where thinning takes place last, to the front. I am sure that more things are being invented all the time, so hold your chin up, a cure for thinning hair or baldness may be right around the corner.
      Good Luck!

  46. QUESTION:
    Essential Oils stop Receding Hairline?
    So I just turned 21 and my hair has been thinning for a LONG time now, but it's really starting to wear down at my self esteem so much that not a day goes by without me getting upset about it or obsessing :( . It started prob when I was 17 but I didn't notice it until I was 19, ugh.
    I refuse to believe that only methods advertised for hair loss are the only ones that work, because, as you know, the FDA wouldn't say "yeah rogaine works, but if you're looking for a more natural solution, try X, Y, and Z." That gives them more competition-and companies are greedyyy!

    So, what do you think? Have you had any success stories/know anybody that has with essential oils (like rosemary or whatnot?) Lemme know b/c I'm going nutz! (and don't know how to style my hair either.)

    • ANSWER:
      Look at it this way: we know rogaine works for most people, we know that the other treatments haven't proved they do a thing.

      Why not use what works?

  47. QUESTION:
    How to stop thinning hair?
    I'm a 25 y/o male. Baldness runs in my family a little, but not at my age. My dad is in his 60s and only half bald. My grandparents and dad had a full head of hair till well into their 40s. My hairline is not receding (I have a mature hairline though) and the thickness of each strand hasn't changed, but my hair density has reduced in the front near my hair line, and in a couple other weird places.

    I eat healthy, excercise, and sleep well. I am under moderate stress, but no more than most others. I don't use gel or too many products. I tried using NIOXIN systems 1 and 2, but it did nothing for me. What can I do to stop this?? I'm reluctant to try rogaine or propecia, but I may have no other options.

    I know that I should just accept it and move on, but I would rather correct it.

Does Horse Shampoo Make Your Hair Grow Faster

Do you want to know how to make your hair grow fast? Even if you have already started to lose your hair. The answer is yes. You can stop your hair loss and make it grow quicker. If you take the right action quickly enough.

The first thought that comes to mind for many people when they want to grow hair quick are "chemical cures". It is only recently though that people are becoming more aware of their side effects and the risks they are taking with their health when they use such methods.

Side effects like loss of libido, erectile dysfunction and hormonal changes, and these side effects are not restricted to men and even worse is the fact that these effects are not temporary either. If you are lucky they are but how many people are really willing to risk their health for their hair? The answer is not many but most people do not know what they are letting themselves in for.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How faster does horse shampoo make your hair grow?
    I have heard from several sourses that horse shampoo makes your hair grow fast. I was just wondering how faster it makes your hair grow that it usually does anyway. Example: __ inches in a week.

    • ANSWER:
      there is a sheep "shampoo" that makes sheep's wool grow faster and healthier - that stuff is usually oily and contains vitamin A, D and E

      so you can just buy vitamins from the pharmacy, mix it together and put it on your roots, leave it for 1-2 hours and wash it off.. :)

  2. QUESTION:
    Does horse shampoo make your hair grow faster? I was also told it makes your hair stink and turn blue, true?
    I recently had a bad hair cutting accident. So im looking to make my hair grow faster. Is it true that horse shampoo makes it grow faster? I was also told that it makes your hair smell and turn blue? All the web sites I looked into said nothing about that, they just said to watch one's diet. Any advice?

    • ANSWER:
      I used to use Mane & Tail shampoo and conditioner- that's for horses, dogs, and people. It comes in a rather big bottle, so it lasts for a long time.

      The shampoo makes your hair thicker and more shiny, but I'm not so sure about the faster. If you want your hair to grow faster, try massaging your scalp while you shampoo. Massage it long, and kind of hard, though not enough to make it hurt. This brings more blood to your scalp, and "wakes up" the hair follicles. I'm not sure if that's what did it, but my hair grows a lot faster now.

      No, horse shampoo doesn't turn your hair blue. Think about it; there are white, flea-bitten, grey, palomino, all sorts of light colored horses, and they walk away from a bath still their normal color. I just don't recommend the really heavy-duty shampoos.

      Anyway, if you use the Main & Tail shampoo/ conditioner, I think one's yellow and the other's white. No coloration issues there. It works really well, and smells pretty good. You can find it at pretty much any grocery store; I used to get mine at Albertsons. CVS or Rite aide might have it, though. It's also not too expensive.

      I hope that this helps!

  3. QUESTION:
    Does horse shampoo make your hair grow faster?
    I heard from one of my friends that his friend used horse shampoo, and his hair was around 6 inches longer within the month. Naturally, I'm skeptical, because I know that nothing makes hair grow faster. Products only help your hair not break off as easily. What do you know about this?

    • ANSWER:
      Well for one try using Mane N' Tail Horse Shampoo. I use it all the
      time and it makes your hair grow faster. I;d say massage it into
      your scalp b/c thats going to help the roots if you just put it on
      the ends, it not going to do anything to it. You can find it at
      walmart in the pet section. also you should drink plenty of water
      to condition your hair and when shampooing and conditioning you should
      use cold or luke warm water on your hair so it won't damage it.
      Even hot water hurts your hair.

  8. QUESTION:
    Does using horse shampoo make your hair grow faster or make it fall out?
    if it makes it grow faster, how much more a month?
    thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I'm a Hair Stylist. Here are some FACTS.

      Nothing you put ON your hair will make it grow faster BUT you can encourage healthy hair growth by doing the following:

      The number one factor to healthy hair is your diet. Eat plenty of biotin, which is a key nutrient. ( Mushrooms are the best source ) also healthy fats like avocado, coconut and olive oil. And lastly plenty of omegas. ( Flaxseed is great. )

      Second, it is important to consider your hair type. If your hair is weak, improving your diet will help. If your hair is dry, your diet will also help but try a deep conditioning treatment. If your hair is oily, use a mixture of baking soda with enough apple cider vinegar to make a paste as shampoo to rid your hair of residue.

      Third, trim your hair once a month. Clean and Healthy hair is also vital to hair growth.

      Fourth, eliminate unneccessary products or habits. Don't straighten your hair every day, if you blow dry use the cool shot, don't use tons of products in your hair either because most contain alcohol which dries your hair out. If you must use a product, try a natural alcohol free one.

      Last, change your pillowcase. Use a satin one. They are more gentle on your hair.

  9. QUESTION:
    does horse shampoo make hair grow faster?
    i've heard that horse shampoo makes your hair go faster, is this true? and is it a noticeable difference?

    • ANSWER:
      horse shampoo generally makes your hair healthier,
      & seems silkier and smoother.
      when your hair's dry and has split ends, the ends break off,
      so it might seem your hairs not growing.

      but basically horse shampoo fixes dead hair,
      so your hair does grow more :)

  10. QUESTION:
    Does using horse shampoo make your hair grow faster?
    Aparrently, it does, so if you have tried it and had sucess, please tell me :)
    Also, I went from blonde to brown, and it fades really easily, so will it be okay with my colour?

    • ANSWER:
      Horse shampoos are designed to clean, thicken and condition the mane and tail of horses, will do much the same for human hair, since the two are similar in construction. However, you should be aware that these products work by swelling the hair shaft, leaving it feeling rougher and more straw-like, and may not be good for those with very fine hair. Fine hair could be damaged by the swelling action.

      after all they are designed for horses and not humans, i have not tried horse shampoo.

      But you can use this product i am using myself to grow your hair quickly you can try it for free and pay only if you are satisfied.

  19. QUESTION:
    Does horse shampoo make your hair grow faster and prettier? lol?
    I cant tell if its a myth or not...I also read it makes your hair thick so what happens if someone with thick hair uses it? lol Will it double the thickness?? Hahaha Im soo clueless >_<

    • ANSWER:
      I use Mane & Tail shampoo (haven't tried the conditioner yet) and I really like it. Usually my hair only feels soft for one day after after I wash/condition it; when I use Mane & Tail, it feels soft for 2 or 3 days (by then I usually wash it again!).

      one of the posters said average hair growth is 1-2" per month. average is much more like 1/2-1" per month. just wanted to point this out so no one panics, thinking their hair is growing abnormally slowly!

      as another poster said, anything you put ON your hair won't make it grow faster. however, certain nutrients can help your hair grow faster/not fall out as much. my hair only ever grew about 1/2" per month; about a year ago i started taking biotin (5mg per day) and my hair now grows 1" per month. my hair is also much thicker, as it stopped falling out so much.

      i'm happy with the biotin but i also started taking (food grade) diatomaceous earth a couple of weeks ago. it's primarily silica, which is good for hair growth as well as skin & nails. my hair has grown 1/2" in the last week!

      just yesterday i went to a farm supply store because i wanted to try one of the detanglers (for horses). out of curiosity i also picked a sulfur treatment that is supposed to help grow hair faster, get it growing again on bald spots/scars, and help with all sorts of skin conditions. it's sold in the equine section but it was originally formulated in the 1930's for men as a baldness remedy. you can find lots of testimonials online; google "shapley's mtg".

      good luck!

    Does horse shampoo really make your hair grown longer and faster?
    I've tried so many things to try and make my hair grow out. Summers coming up and Id like to have my hair long for my sophomore year. Does horse shampoo work at all?

    • ANSWER:
      Well hair grows half an inch each month on its own. But what I would suggest it try using Mane N' Tail Horse Shampoo and Conditioner. I use it all the timeand it does aid in growing your hair faster. I'd say massage it into your scalp so it can get to your roots well this increases the blood flow helping it grow faster. When shampooing and conditioning you should use cold or luke warm wateron your hair so it won't damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.You can find it at walmart in the pet section. You should drink plenty of water to help condition your hair. Eating Coconut oil also has benifits its not only good for adding nutrients to the hair, but its also
      good for weight loss and has many more benifits.
      And don't forget about exercising, as much as I hate it, it actually helps by increasing the blood flow and stimulating the hair to grow faster.

      Hope I helped!

    How Much Do You Think It Can Make Your Hair Grow Per Month ?

  33. QUESTION:
    Does Horse shampoo really make your hair grow longer/faster/healthier?
    My friend started using it... we are both Latin and our hair is wild. It seems to work on here. Has anyone else tried it?

    • ANSWER:
      Hair, on average, grows up to 1/2 inch per month, and there aren't many things a person can do to increase that number. However, there are things you can do to ensure steady hair growth. Frequent trimming is the most important. Get the ends trimmed every 6-8 weeks to avoid getting split ends, which can halt hair growth. Nutrition is also important. A lack of nutrients can slow down hair growth. Taking a multi-vitamin supplement may help your hair grow faster. Adequate sleep helps as well, since sleep helps regulate hormone levels.

      Nothing you can put on the outside of your hair is going to effect how it grows or how thick it is. The primary component of hair fiber is keratin. Keratins are proteins, long chains (polymers) of amino acids. Slathering lotions and chemicals on this is about as effective as putting grease on your face to get ride of acne. (Think about it, the rest of your hair would grow thicker as well as the stuff runs off you in the shower!) Only internal methods (healthier eating, vitamins, drinking plenty of water!) will effect things like hair growth!

    Does Horse Shampoo make your hair grow fast?
    Someone told me to use mane n tales to make my hair grow fast.
    Were they joking?

  35. QUESTION:
    Does Mane 'N Tail horse shampoo make your hair grow or make it grow fast? or does it even work at all?
    I'm trying what ever remitty that I can to grow my hair, does any body know of one that perticularly works for African American hair preferabley someone who knows that it will work because they tried it for them selves or the knew a person directly who tried the remitty. No "I heard...." please, I need people who know for a fact. Thank You

    • ANSWER:
      i am black as well, i've started taking care of my hair and visted sites like http://www.longhaircareforum.com/forums/ and http://forum.blackhairmedia.com/default.asp.. these sites are really informative, please check them out.

      anyways back to your question, mane 'n tail products usually contain protein. Now protein is essential to the hair, this helps the hair to grow stronger and longer because less breakage/damage takes place. But i must warn you, I would perhaps use another shampoo that is moisture based when using the mane 'n tail, meaning alternating between a good moisturizing shampoo one week and the mane 'n tail (protein based) the other week. OR, you could use the mane n tail and after your wash deep condtion with a good moisturizing conditioner for 30-60 mins. This is because if your hair has too much protein ( a.k.a protein overload ) your hair will become hard, dry, mushy and begin to break. If your hair is already healthy and not breaking off you don't need extra protein. It is important to balance protein and moisture in your hair..

      i know this is long, but i hope it helps :)

      btw i've tried the mane n tail hair strengthner , and i loved it.. but a little goes a long way.

  36. QUESTION:
    Does this really work to make your hair grow faster?
    I've heard horse shampoo works to make hair grow faster, is this true? Also, where can I buy some?
    If you think this sounds bogus can you tell me some alternatives for faster hair growth, please?
    Thanks everyone.

    • ANSWER:
      From me and my husbands experience, it made both of our hair thicker. So I suppose that equals longer too. His hair type is oily bone straight and mine is dry & very curly. I'm not sure what your hair type is but the name of the shampoo is Mane N' Tail and it can be found in certain hair stores but is mainly in the pet grooming section. We got ours from Wal-mart.

      It's not going to grow your hair like 5 inches every 5 days but it does help your hair stay healthy, especially if you leave the conditioner in your hair for 3-5 mins and rinse thoroughly. You can even leave it in w/o rinsing I believe for extra split end protection.

      Hot Oil treatments do work the best, and celebs get them done also. Try those as well. I hope you find whats best for you and your hair type.

      luke warm water on your hair so it won't damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.

    • ANSWER:
      Well hair grow half an inch each month on its own. But what I would suggest it try using Mane N' Tail Horse Shampoo and Conditioner. I use it all the timeand it does aid in growing your hair faster. I'd
      say massage it into your scalp so it can get to your roots well this increases the blood flow helping
      it grow faster. When shampooing and conditioning you should use cold or luke warm water on your hair so it won't damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.You can find it at walmart in the pet section.
      You should drink plenty of water to help condition your hair.

      Eating Coconut oil also has benifits its not only good for adding nutrients to the hair, but its also
      good for weight loss and has many more benifits.
      And don't forget about exercising, as much as I hate it, it actually helps by increasing the blood flow
      and stimulating the hair to grow faster.

      It is very safe for humans and dogs to use. It doesn't make your hair grow faster in general, but it makes your hair and scalp healthier, which makes some hair grow faster. It makes my hair look great. I also reccomend Herbal Essences product, I love them!

  41. QUESTION:
    Does horse shampoo work on making your hair grow faster?
    ive heard of people using it before but dont know if it would work

    • ANSWER:
      Ohh yes most definitely. I'm currently using Mane and Tail and am always getting people's compliments of how long my hair has gotten. Only, if your hair is highlighted, colour-treated or natural, you must use a detangler of some sort or a serum to restore the moisture in your hair. I use a deep conditioner called Cholesterol, once a week, that you can purchase at any cosmetic store such as Sally's. A good inexpensive detangler to use would be Pantene Pro V Treatment light spray conditioner that detangles right after you wash your hair and it's towel dried and still damp.

      The link below shows the Cholesterol, which has a very nice scent and literally leaves your hair like silk.

      I hope this helps.

  44. QUESTION:
    Does Mane n Tail (horse shampoo) does it really help your hair grow faster?
    I heard Mane n Tail (shampoo and conditioner) makes your hair grow faster&longer! is that true or not?
    THANKS:)

    • ANSWER:
      No its not true. Hair health and genetics are the only things that determine hair growth. Mane and Tail is full of conditioners that claim it will make your hair feel soft. Its just a gimmick like "Udder Cream".

  45. QUESTION:
    Does horse shampoo really make your hair longer?
    I have a friend and she says that her cousin is telling her to use horse shampoo to make her hair longer, faster. is this true? and how does it make it grow faster?

    • ANSWER:
      No. No shampoo or conditioner no matter how expensive will make your hair grow faster. Your hair will grow at a certain rate based on genetics, the quality of your diet, and how you maintain your hair's health. I think so many people put so much faith into horse shampoo that they psych themselves into "noticing" that their hair's longer faster. It just won't happen for you, I'm sorry to say. If it really did work, it would be on every news show.

  46. QUESTION:

      and she tried Mane'n'Tail shampoo (horse shampoo) and at the beginning her hair was so soft and shiny!! and then after several uses she was BALDING, literally!! and now she has a BALD circle on her head!! dont try it

  47. QUESTION:
    How fast does the horse shampoo make your hair grow?
    Like, im gonna buy it and use it, but how fast does it make ur hair grow?my hair is at my shoulders but i can barely pull it up not to mention my hair is VERY thin and fine, if i do pull it back its a pitiful ponytail LOL. i want long hair. Does it make your hair grow like a couples inches in a couple weeks or what? :)
    YES, im talking about mane N tail, it says straight on the bottle it makes humans hair grow faster. Ive heard that it makes ur hair grow like a weed, but idk.

    • ANSWER:
      What are you talking about? Mane and Tail? No horse shampoo will make your hair grow faster. I have horses and have used many types of shampoo. in fact, horses hair grows slower than humans.

      EDIT: now that I understand your question, I think it is known for doing that but I honestly think a lot of shampoos will do the same thing. The aspect of mane n tail that makes your hair grow faster is the "micro-enriched protein formula" because proteins help your hair grow but many shampoos have a lot of protein and vitamins. You could try it and don't forget to eat a lot of yellow/green fruits and veggies because they have beta carotene which will also help your hair grow faster.

  48. QUESTION:
    Horse shampoo helps grow hair faster, but is there any downsides?
    I heard that it changes your hair color IF it is already dyed, mines is not dyed, so that's a good thing, and also, I heard that it'll make your hair more rough, if your hair is already fine, which is a bad thing...

    My hair is fine, has anyone tried horse shampoo who has healthy/fine hair like I do, that had a good result?

    • ANSWER:
      Can you really make your hair grow faster? The answer is no. The speed of growing is on your genes. But because of different factors our hair does not grow with its maximum speed. If you eliminate things that slow down hair growth, hair will grow faster. What factors slow down hair growth?

      1: Nutrition

      2: Wrong Hair Care

      3: ...

      There are more factors and solutions for you and you can read them all from the following web page

Does Hair Regrowth Work

No matter where you turn, you're bound to see someone who is losing their hair or suffering from it thinning. It is unfortunate that happens all the time. And, in case you haven't noticed, more and more women seem to be subjected to this as well. It leaves people feeling insecure and self-conscious. That's why hair regrowth in men and women is extremely important.

Of course, in the past, people who were dealt this hand just had to grin and bear it. But a lot has changed and there are all kinds of solutions that can help. Certainly, there are also products available on the market that are just there to take your money. They really don't have any scientific proof that they work and they just flat out don't work.The problem with that is that you aren't only throwing your money away on these particular products, you're also losing time.

The fact remains that whenever there is a hungry crowd, as with balding, there is always manipulation by ruthless people and corporations. They simply make millions of dollars by fooling innocent people who have a problem.Unfortunately, they cause a lot of damage. When thinning and balding occurs, it is important that you act as quickly as possible to help regrow hair. If it's left dormant too long, it may be too late.Therefore, it is important to make wise choices.

Look at the products that the FDA has a approved. These are the ones that promise to regrow here and they really work. Often, they contain minoxidil which is the active ingredient. But in addition to that, you should also be looking toward your diet as it can be the culprit with regards to your hair loss.In order to have the healthiest of hair, you should know that it will rely on your diet. If it is lacking in certain vitamins and nutrients, then your hair will be unhealthy, start to thin out, and eventually fall out without ever regrowing.

Therefore, supplementation might be necessary. In addition to it growing back, it will do so shinier and healthier.Of course, anyone could help themselves by taking the supplements on their own. However, the ones that have proven to promote hair regrowth are specific concentrations of different types of vitamins and minerals. If you're looking for success, then you should definitely turn to these which are not only approved by the Federal drug administration, but also have been proven in clinical studies.

  2. QUESTION:

    Does Biotin suppliment work for hair regrowth? Is it true. If sombody has tried so please tel me about your experience?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi. I have been using Biotin for almost 3 yrs now as a supplement for my skin hair and nails. I had chemotherapy in Jan '10 and lost all my hair. I am now 6months on from that and my oncologist has approved Biotin for me again. I have been taking it since May and my hair is growing like wild fire. I have a pixie type hair style and my hair feels lovely and soft. I guess maybe the reason for your hair loss could make a difference to how the supplement might work. I wish you the best of luck.

  3. QUESTION:
    does hair regrowth treatment work for men with genetic disorder of baldness?

    • ANSWER:
      No, of course not. There is no way possible to get hair to regrow in a bald area, especially if it is genetic. Some cases of temporary baldness will return on their own, whether you do anything or not. But baldness is almost always permanent, and no kind of snake oil, bird guano, horse pills, or anything else will make the hair grow back.

      Face it. That spot has no hair follicles, and you cannot produce any after you are born. Without hair follicles (the root), there can be no hair. It's that simple. You can transplant some from a hairy area, and that sometimes works. Save your money, and spend it on a holiday. It will do you a whole lot more good! (Some women actually find bald to be sexy; go figure!)

    • ANSWER:
      Increased hair loss is very common condition and most women and men are overwhelmed by the large number of hair re growth treatments, formula, products suggestions, treatments and information available on net while searching for appropriate solutions for hair re growth.

  6. QUESTION:

    And if they do, what is the best product to buy? and do you have to keep taking it?
    anybody used www.nuhairproducts.com or can tell if the claims they make are true?

    • ANSWER:
      No, of course not, you know that.

      It is only meant to make sales from gullible people. It might make you think that you are growing hair (psychological), since you spent all that money, but there is no proof whatsoever that anything can make hair grow where it no longer wants to.

  7. QUESTION:
    Does Aloe Vera work for hair regrowth?
    Hi, Is there any evidence out there that Aloe Vera aid hair Re-growth. Or does it just keep existing hair in good condition? If it does work, how, where and how often do you apply it?
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      As far as I'm concerned, there is no sufficient evidence to say that it helps hair regrowth. However, it may help hydrate and nourish your scalp with vitamins and minerals. Hair loss could be due to various reasons and some are modifiable. It's your best interest to talk to your pharmacist where there will be medicated products available in the pharmacy to help you with. Otherwise, your pharmacist could also refer you to your doctor for some prescription medicines if over-the-counter medicines are less likely to help.

  9. QUESTION:
    Does Rogaine or any other hair product out there work?
    I'm starting to go bald!!! Does rogaine or any other hair regrowth product work? I have a odd shaped head so I really don't want to shave my head completely bald!...Please help!!

    • ANSWER:
      You should try Rogaine or Propecia. These are only two products approved by FDA for male and female pattern hair loss. However, not everyone responds to these products. People who have alopecia areata do not respond to minoxidil and women who have androgenic hair loss have poor response with finasteride. Furthermore, these products need to be taken for at least 6 months before you see the benefits.

      If you have tried these products and are not satisfied with the results, you can try Bawang Anti-fall and Renewal Shampoo. A number of friends have used the product and told me it prevents hairs from falling and makes the hair thicker.

      I have also seen the following video from YouTube. The product looks quite promising.

      My Hair Loss Story + Hair Care Routine
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=742d0W-2T-k

      The product contains Chinese herbs extracts which can restrain and balance the sebum, nourish hair follicles, strengthen the hair root to make hair stronger and prevent hair loss. You can find the product at ebay.

    Provillus Hair Regrowth For Men - Does It Work?
    Hey guys
    I read some reviews about the Provillus Hair Regrowth treatment for men today and I wonder if one of you here tried this product and know if it really work. I will really appreciate if one of you that used the Provillus Hair Regrowth for men will tell me more about this product and will share a good or bad experience with the Provillus Hair Regrowth product.
    Thanks for your help!

    • ANSWER:
      Hey Ron

      I'm using the Provillus hair regrowth treatment for men in the last few months and overall I'm very satisfied until now.
      The Provillus hair regrowth treatment works by preventing the formation of a chemical compound known as DHT on the scalp. This DHT is the one which wreaks havoc with hair strands on the scalp and leads to their destruction. The Provillus Hair Regrowth product acts by preventing the formation of DHT in the first place. It also helps in the creation of Keratin, which is an essential mineral , so very important for the strengthening of the hair.
      I really liked that the Provillus Hair Regrowth treatment contains several important natural ingredients and one of the advantages of these natural ingredients is that with them there is virtually no chance of any negative side effect occurring. Some of the vital ingredients in the Provillus product include vitamin B6, magnesium and biotin.

      However bear in mind that you may need to use Provillus daily for 3 months or more before you see a benefit from using product. (for me it took 14 weeks to see the first noticeable results).

      Overall I think that the Provillus hair regrowth product for men is one of the most reliable hair loss products that you can find online and with the 90 days full money back guarantee that the manufacturers offer it's absolutely worth a try if.

      Below is also one link that I've found here in other question about the Provillus Hair Regrowth product, you can use it to get about 35% discount for the different offers at the official Provillus website. Hope that it helps, good luck…

    Rogain hasn't worked for my husband and he wants to try something new

    What are your personal experiences if you have tried it?

    • ANSWER:
      I'm pretty sure Nioxin products only work if you have hair loss due to a particular kind of bacteria in your scalp. It doesn't help for hormonal or genetic hair loss.

      Also, Nioxin doesn't grow hair. It claims to stop hair loss. Propecia and Rogaine are your best non-surgical bets for hair re-growth.

  29. QUESTION:
    Does Regaine Minoxidil work beyond 48 weeks for hair loss?
    The box states: "hair regrowth has not been shown to last longer than 48 weeks."

    Does this mean they've not tested it beyond 48 weeks in trials, or does it mean it stops having an effect after 48 weeks. If it stops having an effect after 48 weeks, is that a permanent tolerance that the body has built up to it or will it work again after a period of non-use? If it's a permanent tolerance then Minoxidil is only delaying the inevitable by a year which makes it seem almost pointless to me.

    • ANSWER:
      Minoxidil is a vasodilator medication known for its ability to slow or stop hair loss and promote hair regrowth, but measurable changes disappear within months after discontinuation of treatment.

      The mechanism by which minoxidil promotes hair growth is not fully understood. Minoxidil is a potassium channel agonist. Minoxidil is less effective when there is a large area of hair loss. In addition, its effectiveness has largely been demonstrated in younger men (18 to 41 years of age). Minoxidil use is indicated for central (vertex) balding only.

      I don't know if your using this yet, but i would recommend a Natural remedy that's not harmful to you, but yet effective in helping you gain your hair back.

Though I am suspicious of such heavily advertised products, I am asking for his sake. Has anyone used this and got noticeable results?

    • 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/ingredients.php

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

      good luck!

    • ANSWER:
      theres this mixture for hair :

  35. QUESTION:
    is there a hair regrowth system that actually works?
    my hair is thinning and its really slow and barely noticeable which indicates to me that it is most likely reversible
    im thinking of trying rogaine as it is not that expensive anymore,so it wouldnt be a big waste if it didnt work,however it says it takes months to work and i would rather not waste time.
    ive heard something about some kind of apple extract too...
    also would eating nutritionally help?(not that i dont need to im meaning will i need to do something on top of that.

    • ANSWER:
      If i remember correctly rogaine has been somewhat effective, not for everyone. Say about 50% using the strongest available formula. Alas, the hairloss reversal remains only as long as you take it.

      propecia has the interesting side effect of male sexual dysfunction.. and is no more effective than rogaine.

    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.

    Question about hair sideburns HELP!!!?
    I had a mishap with my razor and cut my sideburns way too short! My hair is somewhat long (3 inches). Anyway, whats left of my sideburn is fuzzy because its grown a while.

    QUESTION: If I dont shave for a week, and cut my sideburns long again, would it look "weird"? I mean, would it look uneven? Or would all my hair "catch up" and eventually it would all look even? Or do I now have to shave the whole damn thing? I'm not sure how hair regrowth works (or if I explained this properly heh). Respond please THANKS!!

      Not shaving for a week, then leave the sideburns long when you do shave will work. Or you could continue to shave as often as you want. Just don't shave the sideburns above the longer point where you want them.

    does keratin straightening work for regrowth?
    im a guy and my hair is curly and boofy and all...
    i was thinking to get it keratin straightened but does that mean my regrowth will be curly/
    my friend told me it wont be for 8 months or so

    • ANSWER:
      I wouldn't recommend them. There are many brands of hair straightening out there and they call them anyway they want to get your attention. Coco is another name brand. Some Japanese hair straightening processes can damage the hair and leave it flat and lifeless.
      None is better than the other.
      http://monicabtheorganicstylist.wordpress.com/tag/hair-relaxers/

      Keratin are not approved by the FDA. Visit their website & search for it in their web. If you're thinking about the Brazilian treatment, there's a danger about using formaldehyde, a chemical that causes cancer. The FDA does not restrict the use of that chemical in cosmetics.

      A hairstylist in Portland, Or. is blowing a whistle on the treatment.
      "A big red flag: About a month after she started using Brazilian Blowout on clients, Scrutton had the first nosebleed of her life."
      http://www.oregonlive.com/health/index.ssf/2010/10/
      after_hair_stylist_becomes_sus.html
      (Type it in if they moved the page. "After hairstylist becomes suspicious of Brazilian Blowout, tests find formaldehyde".

      Stylists and clients often wear gas masks or other protective equipment and still may feel the ill effects of this potentially fatal gas.

      Many customers and stylists do not know that this Brazilian treatment often contains high concentrations of formaldehyde, a cancer-causing chemical.

      Relaxers are for permanent, but they are damaging to hair.

      Go to the FDA website & type in permanent or relaxers so you understand what are the side effects.

      Here's the newest news:
      The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently seized tens of thousands of bottles of "Rio" hair relaxer products after determining they can cause severe hair loss or turn hair green.
      http://blog.taragana.com/business/2010/0…

      The FDA last month warned consumers not to use "Rio Hair Naturalizer Systems," a product imported from Brazil and sold through television infomercials by World Rio Corp. of Los Angeles.

      The official complaints against hair straightening products range from serious hair breakage and hair damage to serious scalp burns that may require an emergency room visit.
      Example of what one suffering severe hair loss after Japanese Hair Straightening from YA HAIR:
      I got my hair rebonded back in March and have lost more than a third of it since then. Everytime I run my hands through my hair, I lose 7-10 strands on average!
      In the shower I lose clumps after shampooing and conditioning.
      Bald spots are showing up in my hair.
      I used to have beautiful thick hair, ho can I get it back?

      Another ex: I used to have very curly, beautiful hair..and then i got it chemically straightened..DONT DO IT! when it started growing out, it was mess and even more difficult to work with than before. and once it was completely grown out, my hair was no longer curly..it is now this aweful wavy mess, and only certain spots are still curly.

      Source(s):
      I know hair. I have 4 decades of hair know-how. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy hair down to my knees. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing in the 80's & 90's. I've known people in their 30's whose hair stopped growing from ironing their hair in the 70's.

    lots of hair loss - home remedies?
    My mum has had a lot of HAIR loss over the years. She has been balding and she has hair but not much of it, its really thin and shoulder length and she's been balding on the crown of her head. She has really bad dandruff, which she's been trying to treat for several years by using medicine doctors have given her and stuff, but nothing has worked. My mum is under a lott of stress from financial problems and stuff too. And she has depression and use to take depression pills. She doesn't anymore because depression pills make you tired, and she needs to not be tires so she can work.

    Basically does anyone know any home remedies for dandruff and hair regrowth?
    That works well?
    Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      There are two things your mom can try out immediately; first, make sure she gets plenty of protein and vitamins in her diet (like B, C, & E). Foods like fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry, and lean red meats will help in this regard. Also, she can apply natural oils to her scalp alongside her shampoo & conditioner to help repair the damage & stimulate new growth. Here's a quick list of a few & their effects:

      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.

      Best of luck to you both :-)

  47. QUESTION:
    Why does my hair fall so easily?One simple pull, wow.?
    Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of people who has the similar problem, but I just need some advice. It all started when I was 14, hair constantly fell down and I dramatically got stressed out. It's been 3 years so far, but my hair still grows back. Weird isn't it?? My hair falls and eventually grows back. I'm 16, and I'm very carefully with what I eat so basically I'm healthy. I went through many doctors and was told that it was just stress. They recommended me to see a therapist but I refused. Should I go?? Or keep looking for an solution. I'm using Nizoral and Minoxidil for hair regrowth daily, and it seems to not work. My hair falls off with some sort of white/yellow powder at the end of the root. With a simple pull it plucks off just like that. Thats how weak it is. Need some advice please. This is not just my top hair, but my eyebrows also. *especially my eyebrows*

  48. QUESTION:
    Could this work as a possible treatment for clip induced alopecia?
    Hey Everyone,

    I am looking for someone with maybe some grooming experience or someone that is familiar with the product I am talking about.

    My poor Pomeranian's coat has been completely compromised by a too short buzz cut resulting in what I have heard refered to as "clip alopecia". Basically, his whole mid section has nothing but VERY short, frizzy fur and numerous bald spots. His coat is not growing back. It has been over a year now and this is as good as its going to get for him at this point.

    I have been trying to find out if there is any way of reversing the damage and possibly get his coat to grow back even if it never gets as beautiful as it was prior to the clipping incident. In my searching I came across something called Megatek by Eqyss. I have never seen this before or heard of it prior to now but from what I am reading, it seems to be a fairly successful product used for coat restoration and rebuilding in animals. Supposedly it stimulates hair regrowth and works well on bald spots and all that. My question is, has anyone ever tried this on their dog and does it really work? And could this possibly work to help reverse the damage from the bad hair cut for my Pom or would it not work for a problem of this nature?

    Thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      I'm a groomer and have heard that the coat may come back after a couple of years if it isn't cut again. I had a customer that wanted only an inch taken off, leaving about an inch and I didn't think it would be a problem but it eventually was. He lost his primary coat and was left with the fuzzy undercoat. His owner became very ill and I don't know what happened to her or the dog.

      Eqyss has a pretty good reputation. I'd go for it. You have nothing to lose.

      I practically make customers that want their double-coated breeds shaved down sign in blood that they understand that the coat may not come back properly. I really hate having to do it.

  49. QUESTION:
    does anyone know of something that works to start regrowth for thinning hair on a 38 yr old women?

    • ANSWER:
      When hair is thinning there are many reasons why that happens, unless you KNOW the cause, you can't just find a solution to a problem.

      Reasons why that might have happened, below is a short form of why.

      1. During the last 3 years, OK 2, how have you been styling or have you been straightening & dyeing or highlighting your hair? Hair weaves & braids causes thinning even hair loss, too!
      Google FDA website Hair dye & relaxers. Those are 75% the reason why.

      2. Have you been taking supplements or using hair oil? Supplements ( billions are wasted and could hurt your lungs, liver, organs). FDA has found that from face creams to soaps and other items of personal care, cosmetics companies are taking the general public for a ride. Oil could be coming from eels or shark. Another 5% why. CNN, Slate, Consumer Reports, MSN, YAHOO have posted them online for years how people spend billion per year on vitamins and supplements.  According to Everyday Health, here's an article that will tell you why . . . those PRODUCTS by any other name do NOT WORK.  It is false advertisements. Google: Are Supplements Good For You? About 7,430,000 results (0.15 seconds) Google: Are vitamins & supplements good for you? About 4,250,000 results (0.14 seconds) Some can actually shorten your life! The Food & Drug do not approve of them!

      3. Have you been stressed out or changed your diet? Genetics of balding runs in your family? Another 10% why.

      4. Have you been taking medications with testosterone, certain antidepressants, menopause, anti-acne? Even birth control pills can cause hair loss. The medication most often prescribed for thyroid disorders can actually cause hair loss. Another 10% why you have hair falls.
      Eliminate the cause and your hair will improve.

      Dove hairfall facts:
      1. Humidity makes hair dry and brittle, leading to hairfall
      2. Colouring the hair damages the hair strands leading to breakage
      3. Pollution is also an unseen killer of healthy hair
      4. Tangled hair is the most common reason for hair fall
      5. While shampooing cleanses your hair, regular conditioning is required for adequate moisturization. Regular use of conditioner post shampoo also solves the problem of entangling which is the major cause of hairfall.
      For women: A simple blood test can reveal the root of the problem. Unfortunately, those who do see a physician right away make the mistake of going to a dermatologist rather than their primary care physician. Most dermatologists will review the physical signs of hair loss and diagnose it as female pattern baldness.  Your primary care physician will run tests to diagnose the problem so you can take steps to correct it. Eliminate them and your hair will improve. Not overnight, it could take weeks, months, even years, since it took that long to start the hair loss.

      If you think they're from your beauty or hair products:
      Take it back to where you bought it.
      Stop using it ASAP.
      You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs & cosmetics to the FDA. Visit the FDA MedWatch website or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

      Google: Glossary of Hair Loss Terms. There are 179 entries in this glossary. Stress is just one of the 179 listed.
      Again, a simple rule of thumb: Look for the American Hair Loss Association seal when considering purchasing any product or service to treat your hair loss.

    I have a huge forehead. I'm using Minoxidil, but doesn't seem to be working very well, kind of make hair loss go slower, but I'm still losing my hair. If there's nothing to do, I've heard of surgeries where they put new hair. How does that work? After you have the surgery, does hair grow (is is alive?)? Or is it just fake and dead hair you cannot cut? THANKS

Does Hair Regrowth Treatments Work

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:
    does hair regrowth treatment work for men with genetic disorder of baldness?

    • ANSWER:
      No, of course not. There is no way possible to get hair to regrow in a bald area, especially if it is genetic. Some cases of temporary baldness will return on their own, whether you do anything or not. But baldness is almost always permanent, and no kind of snake oil, bird guano, horse pills, or anything else will make the hair grow back.

      Face it. That spot has no hair follicles, and you cannot produce any after you are born. Without hair follicles (the root), there can be no hair. It's that simple. You can transplant some from a hairy area, and that sometimes works. Save your money, and spend it on a holiday. It will do you a whole lot more good! (Some women actually find bald to be sexy; go figure!)

  2. QUESTION:
    Does Rogaine Foam, hair regrowth treatment really work?

    • ANSWER:
      Dear Baldie,
      As a matter of fact, yes! I have a boss who was going bald and hed did an amazing thing, he shaved his head. I know it seems dumb but he had an innovative idea. Shave your head so the rogaine sinks into your scalp. So he put his rogaine foam on twice a day, every day, for weeks, and you know what happened? Little Lukies hair grew right back. It was an amazing event. Thanks to rogaine foam
      no more bitches will be loose on the Tundra with this Alpha male on the prowl.

  3. QUESTION:
    does Women's Rogaine Hair Regrowth Treatment really work?
    i just wanted to know because i constantly get my ends cut and my hair takes forever to grow

    • ANSWER:

  4. QUESTION:
    Provillus Hair Regrowth For Men - Does It Work?
    Hey guys
    I read some reviews about the Provillus Hair Regrowth treatment for men today and I wonder if one of you here tried this product and know if it really work. I will really appreciate if one of you that used the Provillus Hair Regrowth for men will tell me more about this product and will share a good or bad experience with the Provillus Hair Regrowth product.
    Thanks for your help!

    • ANSWER:
      Hey Ron

      I'm using the Provillus hair regrowth treatment for men in the last few months and overall I'm very satisfied until now.
      The Provillus hair regrowth treatment works by preventing the formation of a chemical compound known as DHT on the scalp. This DHT is the one which wreaks havoc with hair strands on the scalp and leads to their destruction. The Provillus Hair Regrowth product acts by preventing the formation of DHT in the first place. It also helps in the creation of Keratin, which is an essential mineral , so very important for the strengthening of the hair.
      I really liked that the Provillus Hair Regrowth treatment contains several important natural ingredients and one of the advantages of these natural ingredients is that with them there is virtually no chance of any negative side effect occurring. Some of the vital ingredients in the Provillus product include vitamin B6, magnesium and biotin.

      However bear in mind that you may need to use Provillus daily for 3 months or more before you see a benefit from using product. (for me it took 14 weeks to see the first noticeable results).

      Overall I think that the Provillus hair regrowth product for men is one of the most reliable hair loss products that you can find online and with the 90 days full money back guarantee that the manufacturers offer it's absolutely worth a try if.

      Below is also one link that I've found here in other question about the Provillus Hair Regrowth product, you can use it to get about 35% discount for the different offers at the official Provillus website. Hope that it helps, good luck…

  5. QUESTION:
    Would hair regrowth treatment help your hair grow faster?
    I'm not balding. I was just wondering, would that make my hair grow fast?

    Is there any type of shampoo or conditioner (professional or drug store product) that can make your hair grow?

    Any tips at all?

    Oh and I heard of a product called Hair Bell, from France. Does anyone know if this works or not?

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not sure about any shampoos that promote faster hair growth, but there are vitamins and other dietary supplements you can take that will help your hair grow faster and stronger. Shampoos used on horses is also very, very good for your hair and will promote thicker locks. You should also remember to trim the ends of your hair every 6 months or so, I promise just doing that alone will have your hair growing faster and healthier.

  6. 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!

      not only my and my husband`s own personal experience

  9. QUESTION:
    Hair Regrowth Treatment on Normal Hair?
    Do you think that if i put hair regrowth treatments (rogaine etc) on my normal hair it will help it grow? my hair is already down to my shoulders but everything i try...vitamins, shampoos, scalp massage, 6 week haircuts etc. ..dont work. Its been the same length for 3 years! Help PLEASE

    • ANSWER:
      I think rogaine will only make your hair thicker which will help it grow longer because the roots will be stronger. Hair keeps on falling out and new ones take their place, so yes, most people can't grow their hair down to the floor, at some point it kind of stops getting longer.

      But If you keep getting your hair cut every 6 weeks how do you expect it to grow? Am I missing something here?

  10. QUESTION:
    Does rogaine really work ? Do you know of anyone that used rogaine and you could see some noticable regrowth?
    of hair ? If not rogaine, are there any other hair replacements or treatments that work ?????

    • ANSWER:
      I was browsing the yahoo answers on Rogaine, and read that your body becomes dependant on the active ingredient to grow hair, and is unable to stimulate hair growth on its own after prolonged use. This seems to be true, as using this product does not guarantee permanent regrowth of hair unless you continue to apply it for as long as you want hair growth.

      Rogaine's active ingredient was at first used as a vasodilator to treat high blood pressure... researchers discovered by chance that it had alternate function in stimulating hair growth and also reversing baldness.
      In some cases Rogaine has been known to increase hair loss after initial use! There are a variety negative side effects that can be found easily using wikipedia (see sources) - but it would be best for you to consult a physician before using the drug, as you may have other health conditions which may be implicated in your use of Rogaine! Best of luck... let us know how you do

  11. QUESTION:
    Is Rogaine and Minoxidil the same thing?
    Wondering if the active ingredient in Rogaine is Minoxidil?
    Because I bought the COSTCO (Kirkland brand) of
    Minoxidil ( 5% extra strength) for my husband.

    After reading the insert it illustrates that it should be used on what they call the "vertex" of the scalp ( basically the crown of the head)
    the problem is ...
    My husbands hair loss is around the front of the hairline from the forehead up on either side like a V.
    I'm wondering if this kind of Hair regrowth treatment will work for him.
    When I looked up Rogaine online it doesn't specify an area on the head like the Minoxidil does...
    any ideas
    suggestions
    experiance?
    He has a "receding hairline" I just read on another post that perhaps Minoxidil doesn't work on it?
    For any of you guys reading this and concerned about Hairloss... and what women think... I thought I'd note that "my husband" is the one concerned about the hair loss. I personally think guys with bald heads are kinda sexy;)

    • ANSWER:
      Rogaine is the brand name for minoxidil. Minoxidil is in the class of drugs called hair growth stimulants. Rogaine works on your hair follicles, rather than on the hair. Rogaine efficiently stimulate hair growth on the bald spot of the back of the head in men. In women, Rogaine can boost hair growth in the forehead areas.

      Rogaine (Minoxidil) medication works effectively for both men and women. With Minoxidil as its active ingredient, Rogaine is one of the most popular hair loss treatments available in the market for use.

      This FDA endorsed hair loss treatment for both men and women is available in the strength of 2% and 5% Minoxidil. While 2% of Minoxidil is suggested for use by either of the gender, but 5% of this medication is meant for usage specifically by men. Speak with your doctor to well-acquaint your self about the appropriate usage directions, and whether it is suitable for you or not.

  12. QUESTION:
    Can I use hair regrowth treatment on my face?
    It sounds weird, I know, especially coming from a girl.

    When I first started to pluck my eyebrows in high school (four or five years ago), I went overboard and made them too thin. At the time, I thought they looked fine and continued. For over a year, I've been trying to grow my eyebrows back, and I've been *mostly* successful. The big problem, though, is that the exact spots that are supposed to create the arch are missing.

    I did some light research online, but unfortunately I could only find people asking about eyebrows that were temporarily overplucked ("Help, I accidentally overplucked this morning! What do I do?!"), instead of repeatedly overplucked ("Help, I overplucked four years ago. Now what?!"). A few, however, mentioned using hair regrowth treatment like Rogaine.

    1) Can I use Women's Rogaine on my eyebrows? I checked the back of a package, and it warned against using it on "other areas of the body." (Other than the scalp, I'm assuming.)
    2) How effective do you think it would be?
    3) Would the store-brand alternative to Rogaine work, as well? It's twenty to thirty dollars cheaper, plus I could get an employee discount on it.

    • ANSWER:
      The answer is NO.

      According to 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.

      My sister shaved her eyebrows when she was 17. They never grow back. She had double mastectomy by age 35. She no longer has cancer, but her eyebrows never grow back.

  13. QUESTION:
    What can I do about hair breakage?
    I have medium texture african american hair. I have permanantly relaxing it for a long time. I have noticed that my hair is shorter in the back due to breakage, I gather. I know I have been stressed and possibly lacking some vitamins. Obviosly, those issues can be resolved almost instantly. However, I am at a loss about the management of my hair or what can I do to help the regrowth process? Should I perm? Should I wear hair extensions in the back? What hair treatment works best? What can I use or do to stop the breakage altogether? Etc!
    I have already trimmed and cut my hair to a considerable length to even out the front with the back. (Still noticeable.)
    Thanks in advance for the advice!

    • ANSWER:
      I had mine relaxed for 10 years, got tired of the roller coaster, got off, and came up with a better solution.

      http://naturalblackhair.tumblr.com/

      My story about my hair loss, starting over, and what I learned along the way can be found at: http://naturalblackhair.tumblr.com/

      If you get another perm, the cycle will continue, but the breakage won't stop completely, as long as the relaxer is still there. You can't "strip" them either, as I've heard a lot of people say. The best anyone can do with a relaxer is minimize the damage, unfortunately.

      If you get extensions, be careful of how they are put in, sewn, glue, ect., that can damage your hair and scalp as well. If left in too long, they might start to "lock."

      I put tons of tips on the page link, and I hope that you find something there that can be of help to you.

    I am 18 years old and my hair is real thin, i'm scared i'm gonna be balf by the time hit 25, if not before. I have looked into some treatments such as: low level laser hair therapy, over the counter drugs like provillus, and obviously a hair transplant.

  16. QUESTION:
    hi, i'm using rootz m5 tropical 5%.hair regrowth treatment. its gud to use it?can it prevent baldness?
    i dont know what to do? i'm working in ship..

    • ANSWER:
      Judge for yourself - Results will come but as long as you continue to use it. Once discontinued, hairloss will recur. Side-effects are severe and they will definitely appear sooner or later. Better shift to side-effect free solutions. They may work slow but results will be total.

      Suggest compounds and formulations containing Saw Palmetto, preferably in combination with Silica, Zinc and Roobois extract.

  17. QUESTION:
    Could this work as a possible treatment for clip induced alopecia?
    Hey Everyone,

    I am looking for someone with maybe some grooming experience or someone that is familiar with the product I am talking about.

    My poor Pomeranian's coat has been completely compromised by a too short buzz cut resulting in what I have heard refered to as "clip alopecia". Basically, his whole mid section has nothing but VERY short, frizzy fur and numerous bald spots. His coat is not growing back. It has been over a year now and this is as good as its going to get for him at this point.

    I have been trying to find out if there is any way of reversing the damage and possibly get his coat to grow back even if it never gets as beautiful as it was prior to the clipping incident. In my searching I came across something called Megatek by Eqyss. I have never seen this before or heard of it prior to now but from what I am reading, it seems to be a fairly successful product used for coat restoration and rebuilding in animals. Supposedly it stimulates hair regrowth and works well on bald spots and all that. My question is, has anyone ever tried this on their dog and does it really work? And could this possibly work to help reverse the damage from the bad hair cut for my Pom or would it not work for a problem of this nature?

    Thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      I'm a groomer and have heard that the coat may come back after a couple of years if it isn't cut again. I had a customer that wanted only an inch taken off, leaving about an inch and I didn't think it would be a problem but it eventually was. He lost his primary coat and was left with the fuzzy undercoat. His owner became very ill and I don't know what happened to her or the dog.

      Eqyss has a pretty good reputation. I'd go for it. You have nothing to lose.

      I practically make customers that want their double-coated breeds shaved down sign in blood that they understand that the coat may not come back properly. I really hate having to do it.

  18. QUESTION:
    Home laser hair removal treatments?
    Has anybody had any experience of using home laser hair removal treatments, and did you find that they worked?

    What system did you try? I am looking at the Rio Scanning LHR system, which apparently treats up to 20 hairs at a time?

    How difficult was your system to use, how many treatments did you try and how much regrowth was there (and how soon)??

    If you also wouldn't mind saying whether you are black/white etc and your hair colour that would be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      The Rio laser is very underpowered, the hair just grow back. Unfortunately if you really want to do laser hair removal at home you are probable going to have to buy something medical-grade, something like the Tria. But they cost about £700. It really is a situation of you get what you pay for.

  20. QUESTION:
    What hair products are actually successful at stimulating regrowth post chemo and radiation?
    I only experience a partial hair loss during chemo for Hodgkin's Lymphoma, but it did become more fragile and less lustrous. It began to grow back in fairly quickly after I went into remission, but was finer and more prone to breakage for a while. I just used gentle shampoos and conditioners and never bought anything specifically for hair regrowth. Now I really would like to find something as soon as possible. My hair has been falling out throughout the summer and is now substantially thinner. I'd been having some other weird issues, so I had tests done and found about this stomach issue that is apparently contributing to anemia. Chemo isn't directly responsible for the hair loss, but I think it's been a factor. I am getting treatment for anemia and modifying my diet (I'm a picky eater vegan and I'm going to be eating more things with iron and getting more calories every day from this point forward) but I want something that will directly help with my hair. I am completely freaking out about it now. It's noticeable to other people and I'm getting bombarded with questions about whether I've relapsed.

    If anyone knows of hair regrowth products that aren't gimmicks and will actually work please let me know. Also, if there are any vitamins or other things I should try I'd be grateful if you could tell me about them.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Atlas,

      You could try Rogaine. My ex who is a urologist used it when it was prescription, it is over the counter now. He noticed a difference. The only problem is that it only works as long as you use it, but that may be enough until your body is able to do it on its own.
      Also, use conditioner only on the bottom half of your hair.
      Cooking with cast iron pans add iron to the food cooked in them.

  21. QUESTION:
    hairloss help - regrowth?
    For the past six weeks I've been on a ROSS hair treatment plan. I think it might be working but I can't tell if my hair is regrowing back or not. Do these products work and what are signs of regrowth? And how long does it take?

    • ANSWER:
      The sign of new regrowth are .....seeing new hairs coming in. If you part your hair and you see hairs sticking up, they are probably new ones. I am not familiar with Ross, but different products work on different people. I think it's possible for those products to work on SOME people. I tried one on my son-in-law and it didn't work at all. I had one of my clients try one product and her hair grew in like crazy! So it just depends.

  24. QUESTION:
    Are Japanese straightening treatments a good idea?
    I have very unmanageable hair which I flat iron almost every day. However, I'm getting sick of doing this- I can hear my hair popping and breaking and it takes so long! I'm always afraid of working out or getting my hair damp. I think I would like a Japanese straight perm/ thermal reconditioning. But I have a few questions...
    1. How much does the average treatment cost and how long will it take?
    2. After the treatment, what are the "rules" about how I have to treat my hair?
    3. How long do the results last? What makes them last longer?
    4. Can you touch up your hair, e.g, flat iron any regrowth? Is regrowth very noticeable?
    5. How often do you have to go to get touch ups and how much do they cost?
    6. Will you need a whole new treatment over time?
    7. Is there anything you have to do before the treatment (eg, no straightening for a week)?
    And most importantly....
    8. Would you say getting this perm is worth it? If you have had one do you regret it? Would you do it again?
    Personal experience is appreciated!
    Thank you!

    MAJOR HAIR LOSS @ 15. HELP!!?
    i have been noticing a HUGE clump of hair in the drains and parts that showed my scalp whenever i tied my hair this year, but i have been seeing my hair thinning since 2 years ago.
    it got to the point where i went to my dermatologist and got shots that prevented hair loss and stressed regrowth. i noticed less hair in the drains but not any significant hair growth but it seemed like it was working. and when i went this week after skipping for a good 4 months because of my insurance, the doctor told me this: " seeing from test results, your hair loss seems hereditary. there arent gonna be any results from getting painful shots every month. use rogaine for the rest of your life except when you are pregnant."

    i tried hiding my tears but ended up crying in the car.
    im only fifteen and PLUS a girl.
    i really want my hair back, but i dont know how to do so!

    i get really depressed and stressed because of my hair loss and really desperate to find a solution!

    my doctor recommended rogaine but like for all products, im doubting right now.
    has anyone used it? and i was wondering about scalp med too.
    & anyone know a good dermatologist in the new york city (5 boroughs) area???????? or hair specialists???

    • ANSWER:
      Rogaine is what Elton John used. He went bald in his 20's. He only had a little bit of implant surgery. Rogaine does work. At least you are a girl! You can find great wigs, and they last for years! There are so many varieties, don't stress out! That is a major cause of hair loss! I know breathing lots of fresh oxygen, and massaging the scalp promotes growth as well, and hair, covered does not breathe so it won't grow. In other words, Breathe as much fresh oxygen as you can, massage your head often, and only cover it when you need to. Good luck!

  26. QUESTION:
    how can i fix my unmanagable frizzy dry damaged hair?
    i am biracial so natrually my hair is really curly i Have used relaxers for about 2 years now.
    last time i did relax my hair was about 2 months ago and my hair is in a bad state.
    its not curly at all its all just frizzy and thick and on the inside its really curly.
    i died my hair light brown and my dark brown regrowth is coming back look bad.
    so anyways my question. how do i tame it? no irons do not work they make it worse i was looking at the global keratin treatment is it really going to work because we cant realy afford it so if i do it its going to have to REALLY work.

    please help me im sturgging so much IM EMBRRASED TO GO OUT:(.

    thanks a bunch
    xxx

    • ANSWER:
      I know you said that hair irons do not work, but if you go to the hair dressers and have your hair thinned out then it should work a little better.
      Also, growing your hair longer can help. I don't know if you currently have short hair or not but the more you do have the more it helps to weigh it down a bit.

      You mentioned that you died your hair light brown although your natural colour was dark brown. I think that because your hair is already damaged and frizzy, you really ought to stray away from dying your hair at all. Especially DIY dies and even more so, lighter colours. Dying your hair a lighter colour will do a lot more damaged than dying it darker. Also when regrowth comes along, it doesn't tend to look as bad.
      I suggesting styling your hair in the best possible way to either hide your regrowth, or accentuate it as regrowth does not need to be deemed a bad thing.

      You should invest in some good quality leave-in treatments. I suggest Redkin's extreme range. Redkin is fairly affordable if you are working on a tight budget.

      Also, what kind of brush are you using? You should buy a bamboo one because they are a lot kinder to your hair than hairdresser ones. NEVER brush your hair while it is wet. Your hair is very frail when it is wet and this will cause damage. If you are washing your hair when it is wet, I assume it would be because that is when it is easiest to do. However, the only reason it is easier is because your hair just breaks instead of untangling. Buying some detangling spray will not only stop hair breakage when brushing but, it will also make things A LOT easier for you.

      I would not recommend super expensive treatments as they do not always work and they're not very reliable. Also, things do not last forever and it would be disappointing to spend a lot of money on something that you watch fade away.

      Are you using professional shampoo? Never buy it from the supermarket. NEVER. If you are afraid of salon prices, just remember this: The stuff you buy in salons is packed full of the good stuff only. They do not use harsh chemicals just to fill up the bottle and cut down on prices. So the difference it makes for your hair is exceptional. Also keep in mind that because it does not have "filler" ingredients, you only need to use half as much. I have a lot of hair and it is very long... and yet I only use a 10-20c AUS coin sized amount and it works just fine. I am in love with the brand Matrix. Their products are very reliable and do wonders. For you I suggest their sleek range (orange bottles). Please do not let the prices scare you away, as they will last you for a very long time. Even with all the hair I have, my bottles will last me 3 months or more.

      Of course there is chemical straightening... if you a desperate you could have this done. Do not do it yourself though. Have a professional do it. However I wont go into the details of this because I do not recommend it at all. It is incredibly bad for your hair and chances are you will only experience more damage than good.

      All the best of luck.

    1. does it work?
    2. how permanent is it and how long do you have to be under treatment
    3.is there side effects?
    4. how expensive is it?

    its for my boyfriend by the way.. so yeah i want info from guys
    ( or girls )

    thanks all

    • ANSWER:
      I have never tried this but I can say that each person is different so what works for me may not work for your bf. I am sure you heard the saying "if it sounds too good to be true..." I suggest you try instead to boost his self-esteem and asure him bald or not you'll be by his side and help him to accept the hair loss. This is a win win solution it saves face as well as money.

      Hope this Helps

  29. QUESTION:
    Help with color correction? Cosmetology student here!?
    Last night at work, one of my managers came up to me and asked if I would do her hair. (I'm a cosmetology student who takes boards in May). I asked her what she wanted done, and she said that she wanted highlights all throughout her hair, and had already bought a frosting kit for me to use. I told her that I couldn't highlight her hair in its current state... she has about three inches of dark (slightly reddish) blonde regrowth, and the rest of her shoulder length hair has been colored jet black. I told her that if I attempted to highlight her hair, the regrowth would process much quicker than the strands that were dyed black.

    So, we formulated a plan: I would strip the black from her hair, recolor it, then add highlights. I plan on using extra strength Color Oops to remove the black (I've used this product on my own color mistakes with EXCELLENT, non-damaging results). To recolor her hair, I plan on using either a light golden brown or a dark golden blonde permanent color with a 20 volume developer. Then, after using a deep conditioning treatment, I plan on pulling her hair through the cap and giving her fine highlights throughout her hair, then doing another conditioning treatment and styling as usual.

    Like I said, I'm a cosmetology student (not to mention I have been coloring and highlighting my own hair for the past seven years with no noticeable damage)... so I have a grasp on what I am doing. I've never had to do anything like this though, and I want to make sure I do it right.

    1. I want to do all three services in one day. Is this possible, or should I recolor her hair and then wait a couple weeks to do highlights? Like I said, her hair is pretty healthy, and I plan on doing deep conditioning treatments to insure that it remains healthy.

    2. Would 20 volume be the best choice when recoloring?

    3. When I apply the color, I plan on coloring her regrowth first, then putting it all over. I know the ends will be more porous than before, where I'm gonna be removing color.

    4. Should I use any fillers or additives in the color? I was thinking it would be a great idea... can someone recommend one?

    Any advice or product recommendations would be GREAT, by the way! I have a feeling this will be a GREAT learning experience.

    • ANSWER:
      it is possible to do all 3 services in one day,Pravana makes a really good color extractor,you need to determine her natural color and tone.then decide what base color to apply.If you use pravana extractor it would eliminate the conditioning in between.you need to use a porosity filler like instacure to moisten the midshaft to ends before applying the base color. once you have applied the base color (20 volume ? depending on the natural level and the desired level0you could always foil the hilites through the color.speeds up the whole process.

  30. QUESTION:
    what should i do? merchant threatening to take me to collection agency?
    i went on a program which was 6500 total called natural hair regrowth institute and i would make monthly payements. i was not getting the proper treatment due to poor service. this includes the owner changing dates on me when i would beable to come in interfering with my work schedule. also a staff member refused to do massages at given times. . i wanted to end the program and the owner agreed to end it with a 1000 dollar return to my credit card.

    • ANSWER:
      You were taken. You could sue this company and expose their fraudulent ways. You could report them to your local "fair trading and business bureau," for this issue.

      Suing would be throwing away your money. There is no point in spending ,000 on lawyer fees, court fees etc just to get back 00 from a lousy business owner, of which you are not even sure you'll get back because you might lose the case.

      If I were you, I'd be looking for the fair-trading bureau and file a formal complaint about that organizations unscrupulous business practices. You could also claim that they are making false advertisements, of course have proof. This will definately get the authorities attention, though you must have proof so they get fined and reprimanded etc.

  31. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried Brazilian Keratin Treatment?
    I have blonde, naturally curly hair which, up until recently I wore both straight and curly and could do both easily.

    The problem being that I had a baby just under 11 months ago - when I was pregnant I lost virtually no hair (on a normal day to day (in the shower etc) basis) and my naturally thick hair was just crazy.

    About 3 months after my son was born it started to come out loads. Now, don't get me wrong, I wasn't bald by any stretch of the imagination, but particularly around my hairline, it was quite fine. Now I have REGROWTH. And it is short, and VERY curly. Which means I can't wear it curly - I have to dry it straight (which isn't easy because of my tufty bits). If I leave it curly I just have this ring of fuzz around my forehead. It is ridiculous looking. And when it's straight, it's never 100%. It's not getting me down or anything, but still, I'd like to sort it out.

    I figure the only option is to try and relax it. I've read up about the Brazilian Keratin Treatment quite a bit. Some great reviews, some horror stories, but most of the time the reviews mention that it contains formaldahyde, whereas the version I can get done in my local salon has no formaldahyde (apparently).

    Is this true? Is there a formaldahyde free version? And does it work?

    I need to decide whether I'm getting it or not pretty soon as I'm returning to work on 1st Feb and if I'm getting it done I'd like it done before then.

    • ANSWER:
      I think that you should get it done.
      The Brazilian Keratin Treatment makes your hair really soft, smooth, and shiny.
      It's expensive, but totally worth the price!
      And it will help smooth down all those frizzy parts of your hair. Not to mention the curls.
      As for the formaldehyde, you need it to do a Brazilian Keratin Treatment. That salon wasn't telling the truth. Go to another one.
      ;] I hope I helped!

  32. QUESTION:
    What brand of Brazilian Keratin Treatment should I use?
    I have a 12 yr old daughter. We got the Brazilian Keratin Treatment done on her hair about 4 months ago. Her hair is still doing great, but of course its grown some so now we have the curly regrowth coming in. When I went to the salon it cost me almost 0 to get her hair done. Well I am not a stylist, however I did go to school and worked at a salon for 4 years. Then became a stay at home mom. So I know I can do it. I watched every little detail while she got it done the first time. But I honestly can not afford to pay that price again. I liked the brand they used (Simply Smooth) But I can only find a 4 oz bottle online. And I am looking for a larger quantity because I am thinking I want to do mine also. So my question is what brand should I use that someone has had experience with and is good. If I cant find another brand I will go with the brand the salon used but for my hair (waist length, and enough for 3 people) and my daughters hair (half way down her back and just as thick) will need a few bottles!!!

Does Hair Regrowth Really Work

Generic Name: Finasteride

Brand names: Finpecia, Propecia, Fincar, Finara, Finalo


Finasteride was first developed to treat male patients with enlarged prostates. However, it was not long before scientists noticed another effect it was having, to slow or halt hair loss, and also to promote hair regrowth. Realising the potential, new versions of Finasteride were developed specifically patients suffering male pattern baldness and other forms of hair loss. Despite being manufactured as hair loss products, these new versions of Finasteride still provide prostate related benefits to even healthy patients, having been shown to reduce the risk of prostate cancer.

The way in which it helps prevent hair loss, and promote hair growth is actually quite simple. A male hormone called DHT (dihydro-testosterone) is responsible for the thinning and eventual loss of hair follicles that most males experience at some stage in their lives. Finasteride works to limit, or stop the body's production of DHT, thus enabling hair follicles the opportunity to recover, and even regrow hair.

    Provillus Hair Regrowth For Men - Does It Work?
    Hey guys
    I read some reviews about the Provillus Hair Regrowth treatment for men today and I wonder if one of you here tried this product and know if it really work. I will really appreciate if one of you that used the Provillus Hair Regrowth for men will tell me more about this product and will share a good or bad experience with the Provillus Hair Regrowth product.
    Thanks for your help!

    • ANSWER:
      Hey Ron

      I'm using the Provillus hair regrowth treatment for men in the last few months and overall I'm very satisfied until now.
      The Provillus hair regrowth treatment works by preventing the formation of a chemical compound known as DHT on the scalp. This DHT is the one which wreaks havoc with hair strands on the scalp and leads to their destruction. The Provillus Hair Regrowth product acts by preventing the formation of DHT in the first place. It also helps in the creation of Keratin, which is an essential mineral , so very important for the strengthening of the hair.
      I really liked that the Provillus Hair Regrowth treatment contains several important natural ingredients and one of the advantages of these natural ingredients is that with them there is virtually no chance of any negative side effect occurring. Some of the vital ingredients in the Provillus product include vitamin B6, magnesium and biotin.

      However bear in mind that you may need to use Provillus daily for 3 months or more before you see a benefit from using product. (for me it took 14 weeks to see the first noticeable results).

      Overall I think that the Provillus hair regrowth product for men is one of the most reliable hair loss products that you can find online and with the 90 days full money back guarantee that the manufacturers offer it's absolutely worth a try if.

      Below is also one link that I've found here in other question about the Provillus Hair Regrowth product, you can use it to get about 35% discount for the different offers at the official Provillus website. Hope that it helps, good luck…

  16. QUESTION:
    Does the wen hair product really work as good as people say?
    OKAY, well let me start off by saying NEVER EVER get your hair japanese straightened i got mine done and my hair is breaking terribly i have at least have 3 inches of breakage on the whole crown of my head, it looks like i have a mullet haha. But anyway now my hair is totally damaged super dry it break as easy as a twig that hasn't gotten water in like years. Before my hair was straightened it was very very big wavy and super thick extremely hard to manage. Now as i described my hair is break on all of the top of my head and underneath i have about 3 inches of regrowth so at the top of my head my hair is wavy and big but from the top of my ears down is is straight and surprisingly soft. So to get to my question does this stuff really work as good as everybody says it does and if so which Set should i get??? THX and any help is much appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      If it's moisture you need then QVC.com sells a Wen moisturizing set comprising of Lavender, Trea Tea, and Fig. Fig is the most moisturizing, and after consistent use I noticed my hair began to retain moisture better. It's also makes my hair super soft. I like it because it gets my hair clean without the drying effect of shampoo, but I don't like how expensive it is. I can't afford to continue using this product so I'll switch back to a sulfate-free shampoo when I run out. I've also used the Almond Mint and that smells the best, but it didn't offer my hair the moisture it needed. It also defined my curls pretty well. The lavender also defines my curls. If I could afford it then I'd keep using it, but I'm a poor graduate student. My hair is in generally good health so I didn't notice major improvements in my hair since there isn't any damage to repair. It's extremely dry, so I did notice an increase in moisture retention.

      Anyway, with consistent use and the right formula then you should see results, but, like every product, it doesn't work for everyone. Just read the reviews and if you like them then you can try the product. The good thing about Wen is that you can try it for 30 days for a money back guarantee. I bought the sample set at http://www.wenhaircare.com and sent it back after 30 days for my money back, minus shipping and handling; I used 90% of the product. Wen has a money back guarantee that says you can send it back even if the product is used up. QVC also has a 30 day money back guarantee. If one formula doesn't work, then you can always try the other formulas. The only way to find out if it works for your hair is to try it. http://www.qvc.com sells it the cheapest, but might not stock all the Wen products. http://www.chazdean.com has the whole product line.

    • ANSWER:
      You should try Rogaine or Propecia. These are only two products approved by FDA for male and female pattern hair loss. However, not everyone responds to these products. People who have alopecia areata do not respond to minoxidil and women who have androgenic hair loss have poor response with finasteride. Furthermore, these products need to be taken for at least 6 months before you see the benefits.

      If you have tried these products and are not satisfied with the results, you can try Bawang Anti-fall and Renewal Shampoo. A number of friends have used the product and told me it prevents hairs from falling and makes the hair thicker.

      I have also seen the following video from YouTube. The product looks quite promising.

      My Hair Loss Story + Hair Care Routine
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=742d0W-2T-k

      The product contains Chinese herbs extracts which can restrain and balance the sebum, nourish hair follicles, strengthen the hair root to make hair stronger and prevent hair loss. You can find the product at ebay.

    Is here anyone who had PCOS and thinning hair who underwent that treatment ? plz help..thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Segals Solutions is better than Richfeel. It helped me a lot. Regrowth happens only if the follicles are intact though maybe dormant

  19. QUESTION:
    Does electrolysis really work?
    as in do you really only have to have one or two trips to the salon or is it like waxing in that it 'may' reduce hair regrowth but doesnt really

    • ANSWER:
      It's long so you have to be patients and you might expect several trips to the beauty saloon, but it is worth it! Be sure that the person who is operating on you is a professional, from the first 2 trips you can tell if you developped rash and some irregular pore opening that this means that either the machine he/she is using or the beautician is not good.
      Try to go as regularly as possible when the hair is in a growing phase. The hair will grow fine the first time but by the second round they will be gone forever. Also remember that the quick efficiency depending on the area of your body or face that you want to operate on. Be patient and believe me it's priceless--- I've had my armpits and mustache done 5 years ago ( I was going to the saloon every other day) and the hair didn't grow since.
      One last thing: Make sure that you don't have any hormonal problems in case you have lots of hair on your face. So go visit your doctor first.

      Each hair will have to be removed at an average of 2 times, so this is quite a lot of trips to the saloon. It also depends on your hair type and follicle hair and where on your body...Anyway it is not advisable to operate in a little time on 1 little area, all beauticians know that and I'm sure if they are professional they can answer all your questions.

  20. QUESTION:
    has anybody ever tried scalp med or women's rogaine for hair loss??? do these products really work?
    are there any products out there that are really good for hair regrowth?

    • ANSWER:
      Do a Google search and you will find they have not been effective.
      This NATURAL, safe remedy stops thinning & loss almost straight away and forces new growth. My hair has completely regrown on crown. Where receded at front regrowth is slower, but has grown a lot and though sparse at beginning, each month it becomes denser. Massage thoroughly with natural oils - olive oil is excellent - then brush vigorously using a brush with stiff short bristles so you really feel it stimulating scalp (90 /100 strokes or even more each day focusing on where loss is). 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 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.
      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!

  22. QUESTION:
    Does rogaine really work ? Do you know of anyone that used rogaine and you could see some noticable regrowth?
    of hair ? If not rogaine, are there any other hair replacements or treatments that work ?????

    • ANSWER:
      I was browsing the yahoo answers on Rogaine, and read that your body becomes dependant on the active ingredient to grow hair, and is unable to stimulate hair growth on its own after prolonged use. This seems to be true, as using this product does not guarantee permanent regrowth of hair unless you continue to apply it for as long as you want hair growth.

      Rogaine's active ingredient was at first used as a vasodilator to treat high blood pressure... researchers discovered by chance that it had alternate function in stimulating hair growth and also reversing baldness.
      In some cases Rogaine has been known to increase hair loss after initial use! There are a variety negative side effects that can be found easily using wikipedia (see sources) - but it would be best for you to consult a physician before using the drug, as you may have other health conditions which may be implicated in your use of Rogaine! Best of luck... let us know how you do

    is there a hair regrowth system that actually works?
    my hair is thinning and its really slow and barely noticeable which indicates to me that it is most likely reversible
    im thinking of trying rogaine as it is not that expensive anymore,so it wouldnt be a big waste if it didnt work,however it says it takes months to work and i would rather not waste time.
    ive heard something about some kind of apple extract too...
    also would eating nutritionally help?(not that i dont need to im meaning will i need to do something on top of that.

    • ANSWER:
      If i remember correctly rogaine has been somewhat effective, not for everyone. Say about 50% using the strongest available formula. Alas, the hairloss reversal remains only as long as you take it.

      propecia has the interesting side effect of male sexual dysfunction.. and is no more effective than rogaine.

    • ANSWER:
      When it comes to hairy situations, many of us can live with a bad haircut or a little graying or the occasional day with our hair looks like a haystack. But the most frustrating problem for many people--men especially--is what's perceived to be the start of the downhill slide to death, or at least the impetus for wanting that Corvette: hair loss.

      While we tend to say that baldness comes from the mother's side, an individual's genes from both parents influence that person's predisposition to male or female-pattern baldness. Of course, hair loss is far more visible in men (80 percent of whom experience some degree of baldness), but nearly 40 percent of women lose substantial amounts of hair after menopause, as well (women tend to thin out all over, rather than develop the signature spots that men do), making it a major appearance issue for both genders.To learn how you lose hair, you first have to understand how it grows. Hair goes through its own growth cycle that's unrelated to seasons or hormones or anything else. It's a random biological process that's dictated largely by your genetic disposition. The two main phases:

      Anagen (active): Cells in the root are dividing quickly and pushing the hair out. It averages two to three years.

      Telogen (resting): This phase last for about 100 days on the scalp. Consider it hair hibernation- the follicle is completely at rest.

      Doctors don't know why certain hair follicles are programmed to have a shorter growth period than others. One suspected factor for age-related male-pattern baldness is a person's level of androgens- the "male" hormones that are actually produced by both men and women. For many years, people believed that a predominance of testosterone was the root cause of baldness, but it's not quite that simple. We don't know that we lose hair especially fast if it is exposed to dihydrotestosterone (DHT, which comes from metabolism of testosterone). It's believed that the exposure of follicles to levels of testosterone that are normal for adult males causes the hair follicles to go into a resting state. This DHT is formed in the testes, prostate, adrenals, and hair follicles themselves through an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase. The enzyme raises the levels of DHT, and that's why there's a link between higher levels of this enzymes and areas of baldness. DHT changes healthy follicles to follicles that grow thin dwarf hairs- hairs that resemble peach fuzz. Essentially, DHT shrinks hair follicles, making it impossible for healthy hair to survive. Drug companies have targeted this process by making antibaldness medication that inhibits 5-alpha-reductase, the enzyme that makes DHT. (Some infrequent side effects of these meds include impotence, decreased libido, and breast enlargement).

      Now, age-related baldness isn't the only reason why clumps of hair start falling from the head like raindrops from the sky. Other causes, especially for women, include low iron levels and anemia (low blood count), recent anesthesia for surgery (it's the stress of the surgery and the pressure on one area of the head, not the anesthesia), menopause or being postpartum, autoimmune diseases such as lupus, thyroid disease, and polycystic ovarian disease (PCOS).

      Rapid hair loss is often a strong sign that you ought to have a battery of tests to evaluate your nutrition, health, and hormone levels. And that makes an important point: Hair loss isn't just an appearance issue; it can be a sign that something wacky is going on elsewhere in your body. Inflammation in the scalp, from an overdose of sun or from seborrheic dermatitis, can speed up hair loss. More often than not, it's a hormone issue- especially one involving your thyroid gland. In women especially, it's common to experience a decline in thyroid hormone (that's called hypothyroidism), where some of your bodily systems slow down. Scalp hair loss or facial hair growth is a sign that you should have your hormone levels checked. We recommend having your thyroid-stimulating hormone checked every other year if you're losing hair, or, for all others, once at age 20, then at age 35, and every other year after age 50 (TSH is the trigger from the brain that tells your thyroid gland to make thyroid hormone). If your level of thyroid hormone is low or if it's normal but you are experiencing thyroid-related symptoms, you can be (and usually need to be) treated with a synthetic (sometimes bioidentical) hormome. You'll need to be rechecked six weeks later to see if the supplemented does is enough. For a man, a decline in the need to shave signals a decrease in testosterone (for a woman, it's the same clue if she needs to shave her legs less often).

  28. QUESTION:
    Could this work as a possible treatment for clip induced alopecia?
    Hey Everyone,

    I am looking for someone with maybe some grooming experience or someone that is familiar with the product I am talking about.

    My poor Pomeranian's coat has been completely compromised by a too short buzz cut resulting in what I have heard refered to as "clip alopecia". Basically, his whole mid section has nothing but VERY short, frizzy fur and numerous bald spots. His coat is not growing back. It has been over a year now and this is as good as its going to get for him at this point.

    I have been trying to find out if there is any way of reversing the damage and possibly get his coat to grow back even if it never gets as beautiful as it was prior to the clipping incident. In my searching I came across something called Megatek by Eqyss. I have never seen this before or heard of it prior to now but from what I am reading, it seems to be a fairly successful product used for coat restoration and rebuilding in animals. Supposedly it stimulates hair regrowth and works well on bald spots and all that. My question is, has anyone ever tried this on their dog and does it really work? And could this possibly work to help reverse the damage from the bad hair cut for my Pom or would it not work for a problem of this nature?

    Thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      I'm a groomer and have heard that the coat may come back after a couple of years if it isn't cut again. I had a customer that wanted only an inch taken off, leaving about an inch and I didn't think it would be a problem but it eventually was. He lost his primary coat and was left with the fuzzy undercoat. His owner became very ill and I don't know what happened to her or the dog.

      Eqyss has a pretty good reputation. I'd go for it. You have nothing to lose.

      I practically make customers that want their double-coated breeds shaved down sign in blood that they understand that the coat may not come back properly. I really hate having to do it.

  30. QUESTION:
    How fast does hair grow on a frequently bleached head of hair?
    I like having blonde hair so i bleach my hair every so often (only the roots for regrowth)
    But I am really wanting to grown my hair longer >.<
    How long do you think it would take for my hair to grow motnly on average?
    What are maybe some ways to get it to grow faster?
    Ways that actually work :P
    Thanks (:

    • ANSWER:
      Very Slowly, if at all.. The regular bleach chemicals on your scalp means that your roots need to recover.

      If you want to keep bleaching, just try to eat healthier to encourage hair growth..

      Fish, Seaweed, Tofu, Dairy, vitamins... Omega 3 Amino Acids Fish Oil (if you don't like eating fish). Vitamin E. B complex Vitamins. Do not bother with Biotin.. does not work.

      Cut of your split ends once. They keep the hair for growing longer. Then don't cut your hair anymore.

      Moisturize a lot to keep hair proteins in. I suggest coconut oil treatments.

  31. QUESTION:
    Brow Enhancing Serum, does it really work? (from sephora)?
    What it is:
    Brow Enhancing Serum is a colorless and odorless gel, comprised of a unique blend of top proteins and vitamins designed to condition, repair, and restore the eyebrows.

    What it is formulated to do:
    Gone are the days of sparse, thin brows - say hello to fuller, thicker-looking brows with Brow Enhancing Serum. The unique gel-based formula is designed to help restore thin, over-plucked, and undernourished eyebrows. The deep conditioning action works to help stimulate brow growth, leaving them looking bold and beautiful.

    What else you need to know:
    Unlike other eyebrow regrowth products on the market that claim to work in a few months, Brow Enhancing Serum is clinically proven to stimulate the hair follicle in as quickly as 4-6 weeks! An easy-to-use applicator allows the non-greasy formula to glide on smooth without tugging or pulling and is gentle enough to be used every day. Brow Enhancing Serum is not harmful to the eyes or the surrounding skin area, plus as an added bonus, it also slows down excess hair loss, which results in a healthier fuller-looking brow.

  32. QUESTION:
    What hair products are actually successful at stimulating regrowth post chemo and radiation?
    I only experience a partial hair loss during chemo for Hodgkin's Lymphoma, but it did become more fragile and less lustrous. It began to grow back in fairly quickly after I went into remission, but was finer and more prone to breakage for a while. I just used gentle shampoos and conditioners and never bought anything specifically for hair regrowth. Now I really would like to find something as soon as possible. My hair has been falling out throughout the summer and is now substantially thinner. I'd been having some other weird issues, so I had tests done and found about this stomach issue that is apparently contributing to anemia. Chemo isn't directly responsible for the hair loss, but I think it's been a factor. I am getting treatment for anemia and modifying my diet (I'm a picky eater vegan and I'm going to be eating more things with iron and getting more calories every day from this point forward) but I want something that will directly help with my hair. I am completely freaking out about it now. It's noticeable to other people and I'm getting bombarded with questions about whether I've relapsed.

    If anyone knows of hair regrowth products that aren't gimmicks and will actually work please let me know. Also, if there are any vitamins or other things I should try I'd be grateful if you could tell me about them.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Atlas,

      You could try Rogaine. My ex who is a urologist used it when it was prescription, it is over the counter now. He noticed a difference. The only problem is that it only works as long as you use it, but that may be enough until your body is able to do it on its own.
      Also, use conditioner only on the bottom half of your hair.
      Cooking with cast iron pans add iron to the food cooked in them.

    My mum has had a lot of HAIR loss over the years. She has been balding and she has hair but not much of it, its really thin and shoulder length and she's been balding on the crown of her head. She has really bad dandruff, which she's been trying to treat for several years by using medicine doctors have given her and stuff, but nothing has worked. My mum is under a lott of stress from financial problems and stuff too. And she has depression and use to take depression pills. She doesn't anymore because depression pills make you tired, and she needs to not be tires so she can work.

    Basically does anyone know any home remedies for dandruff and hair regrowth?
    That works well?
    Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      There are two things your mom can try out immediately; first, make sure she gets plenty of protein and vitamins in her diet (like B, C, & E). Foods like fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry, and lean red meats will help in this regard. Also, she can apply natural oils to her scalp alongside her shampoo & conditioner to help repair the damage & stimulate new growth. Here's a quick list of a few & their effects:

      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.

      Best of luck to you both :-)

    Does anyone have any good shaving tips to share?
    Hey Girls (and possibly guys lol),

    I have really sensitive skin and really pale skin. I want to get a close shave without getting irritation (i get red dots all over my legs and it hurts). When i do shave it grows back in a day! and you can see if very clearly because i have very very dark hair.

    I like to shave my entire leg and bikini line. So... if you get the picture... i'm pretty much an ape in the form of a human girl. lol.

    I have tried waxing and i can not stand the pain. lol. I had to ask the beautician to stop :-P

    To cut it short: I have really quick hair regrowth. Sensitive Skin - red dots. Dark hair. Pale Skin.

    So, any tips?

    P.S. If anyone can recommend a good shaving gel or razor, that'd be great! Or recommend anything really lol. Except waxing :-P It just doesn't work for me.

    P.S.S. If anyone could explain how to shave correctly, that'd be great too!
    I do cover up. I love jeans so its good! But i live in Australia and its summer here and so bloody hot lol. Thanks for the suggestion though :-)

    • ANSWER:
      To shave correctly:

  44. QUESTION:
    Question about hair loss/regrowth & braids?
    Okay, I've had long hair for going on 10 years now, & for the most part, I keep it braided. Normally, the braids aren't too tight, & about 90-95% of the time, they aren't really tight at all after they've been in for a couple of hours.

    But, obviously, having braids has it's setbacks, the main being that my hairline isn't where it once was. I know this is because of the fact that when you get your hair braided, whether it's tight or not, it's pulling on your hairline.

    I recently got my hair braided, but I'm thinking of leaving it down for a while in order to let my hair regrow & basically let my hairline be somewhat where it used to be. But, my question is, how long would I need to go without braids in order to experience regrowth?

    And when my hair is down, what can I do to prevent it from getting shorter? Also, if I made an effort to get more Vitamin C, as well as drink water, would that all work to my advantage in getting the hair I've lost in the front to regrow?

    • ANSWER:
      Tips for Preventing Hair Loss:
      * Avoid overwashing These can cause excess oil production.
      *Avoid shampoos that have harsh chemicals, use a mild shampoo also wash your hair twice a week instead of every day.
      * Bleaching and dying hair so often is that the chemicals are harsh and can lead to hair loss, coloring your hair every six months, highlights should be done every two to four months.
      * Avoid daily heat styling, you should also try to stay away from high heat things such as such as a flat iron, curling iron or blow dryer

      Best Practices
      * Shower with warm water instead hot water.
      * Use a heat protectant when you use a heated styling tool and your hair is most variable when it wet try dry your hair on medium or low heat rather than high heat of the hair dryer, If you use a towel take good care of your hair, do not scratch or damage your scalp.
      * Massage your scalp with essential oils.
      * Use brush with rounded teeth, harsh nylon bristles and sharp teeth may damage the hair and scalp.
      * Eat loaded with omega-3 fatty acids like fish, walnuts, flax seed and fish oil supplement other recommended food like egg, milk, green tea, avocado also avoid animal fat food like red meat

  45. QUESTION:
    How long for hair regrowth to appear? Anorexia recovery....?
    I've been struggling with anorexia for a number of years. After a couple of events, it truly became a problem. My parents and friends noticed and were begging for me to start eating more. I really didn't see a problem; until I started getting out of the shower and counting hundreds of hairs fallen out.

    Around last April, I decided it was too much of a problem for my health and that I needed to start eating more healthily to save my hair.

    I started eating good fats again (fish, nuts, NON skim dairy products, the works) and taking vitamins to promote hair growth.

    My problem is that I still find hairs falling out in a number I find a little higher then normal. I've always had thin hair but I'm worried I'm still losing it faster then it's growing in.

    What are some foods to promote hair growth and how long does it take for the growth to appear? Are there any products or vitamins I should be using to promote more, thicker growth?

    • ANSWER:
      First of all, congrats for ur recovery, ur hair must be damaged right now, try oil bath, serums, use Dove shampoo for damaged hair, don't dye it, eat vegies fruits that helps alot, u'll see the results after a month.

      best of luck

  46. QUESTION:
    Hair loss and Vitamins. WILL THIS WORK. ?
    For almost a year I've been struggling with Alopecia Areata and S.D.
    For six months I managed to slow the hair loss, then I got tired of doing
    that because I didn't want to keep constantly shampooing my scalp
    with Ketaconazole for the rest of my life. A few days ago I was searching more on possibly stoping Alopecia and I found out that Biotin, Provillus, Saw Palmetto, and a few others Vitamins that successfully stopped
    Alopecia. The first three seemed to stand out more than the rest the more and more I searched and that excited me.

    So I was wondering if anyone here is suffering or suffered from it and tried any of those three, combined them with other things had any success and got their hair back or is currently using it for a a few months and have seen alot of new hair regrowth and it hasn't fallen out PLEASE share because i'd really like to win this battle......and not be afraid of my favorite combs and brushes anymore. :)

    • ANSWER:
      Many of the Alopecia Aereata sufferers are worlds renown dermatologists! If there were a fruitful treatment they would probably use it. Unfortunately there is nothing curative so far! I am sorry to bring this to your attention but this is the truth.

Or, maybe you should go to the mall and see if there is a salon that does something to help... Sorry if i'm not much help.

  48. QUESTION:
    who knows about hair loss? & hair regrowth?
    A little less than two years ago, I had a very bad experience with glued-in hair extensions. I was uninformed about the risks and the entire process and basically lost half of my hair. My hair was very thin for a time, but steadily has seemed to become thicker. I had to cut it short to get rid of most of the damage. Anyway, for anyone who knows a thing or two about hair loss, this question is for you. I have noticed progress doing a daily vitamin regime of 1 multivitamin, a 2500mcg biotin tablet and a super b complex vitamin in the morning, and the multivitamin and flaxseed oil with dinner. I have been using Nioxin for about a month and I think that it is really helping me. Has anyone used nioxin or saw steady progress with it? I use system one but I was considering using the styling products as well. Also, if there was a vitamin that seemed to work for you or you have an opinion about my regime, I am open to hearing it. Thanks and I apoligize for the longgg question ;)

  49. QUESTION:
    how can i fix my unmanagable frizzy dry damaged hair?
    i am biracial so natrually my hair is really curly i Have used relaxers for about 2 years now.
    last time i did relax my hair was about 2 months ago and my hair is in a bad state.
    its not curly at all its all just frizzy and thick and on the inside its really curly.
    i died my hair light brown and my dark brown regrowth is coming back look bad.
    so anyways my question. how do i tame it? no irons do not work they make it worse i was looking at the global keratin treatment is it really going to work because we cant realy afford it so if i do it its going to have to REALLY work.

    please help me im sturgging so much IM EMBRRASED TO GO OUT:(.

    thanks a bunch
    xxx

    • ANSWER:
      I know you said that hair irons do not work, but if you go to the hair dressers and have your hair thinned out then it should work a little better.
      Also, growing your hair longer can help. I don't know if you currently have short hair or not but the more you do have the more it helps to weigh it down a bit.

      You mentioned that you died your hair light brown although your natural colour was dark brown. I think that because your hair is already damaged and frizzy, you really ought to stray away from dying your hair at all. Especially DIY dies and even more so, lighter colours. Dying your hair a lighter colour will do a lot more damaged than dying it darker. Also when regrowth comes along, it doesn't tend to look as bad.
      I suggesting styling your hair in the best possible way to either hide your regrowth, or accentuate it as regrowth does not need to be deemed a bad thing.

      You should invest in some good quality leave-in treatments. I suggest Redkin's extreme range. Redkin is fairly affordable if you are working on a tight budget.

      Also, what kind of brush are you using? You should buy a bamboo one because they are a lot kinder to your hair than hairdresser ones. NEVER brush your hair while it is wet. Your hair is very frail when it is wet and this will cause damage. If you are washing your hair when it is wet, I assume it would be because that is when it is easiest to do. However, the only reason it is easier is because your hair just breaks instead of untangling. Buying some detangling spray will not only stop hair breakage when brushing but, it will also make things A LOT easier for you.

      I would not recommend super expensive treatments as they do not always work and they're not very reliable. Also, things do not last forever and it would be disappointing to spend a lot of money on something that you watch fade away.

      Are you using professional shampoo? Never buy it from the supermarket. NEVER. If you are afraid of salon prices, just remember this: The stuff you buy in salons is packed full of the good stuff only. They do not use harsh chemicals just to fill up the bottle and cut down on prices. So the difference it makes for your hair is exceptional. Also keep in mind that because it does not have "filler" ingredients, you only need to use half as much. I have a lot of hair and it is very long... and yet I only use a 10-20c AUS coin sized amount and it works just fine. I am in love with the brand Matrix. Their products are very reliable and do wonders. For you I suggest their sleek range (orange bottles). Please do not let the prices scare you away, as they will last you for a very long time. Even with all the hair I have, my bottles will last me 3 months or more.

      Of course there is chemical straightening... if you a desperate you could have this done. Do not do it yourself though. Have a professional do it. However I wont go into the details of this because I do not recommend it at all. It is incredibly bad for your hair and chances are you will only experience more damage than good.

      All the best of luck.

  50. QUESTION:
    What can this be??? [HAIR & SCALP.]?
    okay, my hair is really thin and i know it's not because of my age because i'm only 23 years old. well, i always wear my hair up in a bun on my head or whatever but it's always up, and thats because i see it's gotton very very thin over these past like 3 years. i have no ideal why? i just know it's very stressful and annoying. it won't grow any, and i used this hair product for regrowth, but it didnt work.

    Do you think i could have something, like a cist in my head or can weight gain, poor diet cause this. i dont know but if i decide to go to the Doctor, what kind of Doctor should i see?????

    I also, have this red kinda inflammed little tiny circle on my head, and it's been there for the longest and wont go away. I also lose a lot of hair wheni wash it. when i lift my hair up in the back to see it in the mirror, i can see the root, it looks like theres only 1 hair coming out each hair follicle. =[

    What should i do? What do u think it is??

    Thank You So Much! Take Care!

    • ANSWER:
      First, let me say, I'm not a professional. I believe that it could be a number of reasons. You mention poor diet and stress. I believe those can be major contributors to your condition. A friend had experienced hair thinning then hair loss for many years from her early 20s until late 20s. Once she married and moved away from her parents, her hair began to grow again. Also, continuing to wear it in a bun, indicates to me that you are placing undue stress on your scalp. You may want to find hair styles that allow your hair to be loose.

      I would suggest a book. Yes, a book. It's is called You Can Heal Your Life, by Louise Hay. She talks about the emotional connection to illnesses and ailments. My friend and I both swear by it. You too may find it helpful. Best of luck to you.


Does Hair Regrowth Shampoo Work

Shampoo, as an hair product, serves to protect the hair in the extracting of dandruff, skin particles, environmental contaminant, dirt and oil that steadily accumulates in the hair. However, all these it removes carefully without pulling out the hair itself. Shampoo serves as a soap-like surfactant, which after removing unwanted elements in the hair serves as a covering layer for protection. It is usually combined with conditioners that allows for ease of combing of hair.

The hair follicles accumulate sebum in the hair in other to protect the hair and scalp, however, this sebum accumulated will also gather dirt from the immediate environment to itself. These will then cause the undesirable damage to the hair. But shampoo, as hair soap will not only wash away the dirt and sebum, but will also lay down a protective layer due to its surfactant properties. It contains vital constituents for the benefit of hair protection and growth, they include: amino acids, vitamins, ammonium chloride, ammonium lauryl sulphate, glycol, sodium laureth sulphate, sodium lauryl sulphate. They all function to: give effortless rinsing, reduced skin irritation, protect hair from damage, thickening of the hair, serve as hair fragrance, and to provide little acidic pH for the benefit of the hair.

There are hair products and shampoos that can be bought in the market (however some of them can only be bought if prescribed) that serves to protect against hair loss and enhance the growth hair. Rogaine, it is a hair product which has minoxidil as it s primary constituent. It serves to increase blood flow to the hair follicles, since it is a vasodilator. Herbal shampoo is a natural shampoo that contains plant derived ingredients that enhances the growth of the hair and protects it as well. Also is Therapy-g, it is particularly a hair growth shampoo that deep cleans and neutralise hair toxins,

      I'm not sure about any shampoos that promote faster hair growth, but there are vitamins and other dietary supplements you can take that will help your hair grow faster and stronger.

  4. QUESTION:
    Hair Regrowth Treatment on Normal Hair?
    Do you think that if i put hair regrowth treatments (rogaine etc) on my normal hair it will help it grow? my hair is already down to my shoulders but everything i try...vitamins, shampoos, scalp massage, 6 week haircuts etc. ..dont work. Its been the same length for 3 years! Help PLEASE

    • ANSWER:
      I think rogaine will only make your hair thicker which will help it grow longer because the roots will be stronger. Hair keeps on falling out and new ones take their place, so yes, most people can't grow their hair down to the floor, at some point it kind of stops getting longer.

      But If you keep getting your hair cut every 6 weeks how do you expect it to grow? Am I missing something here?

  5. QUESTION:
    What hair products are actually successful at stimulating regrowth post chemo and radiation?
    I only experience a partial hair loss during chemo for Hodgkin's Lymphoma, but it did become more fragile and less lustrous. It began to grow back in fairly quickly after I went into remission, but was finer and more prone to breakage for a while. I just used gentle shampoos and conditioners and never bought anything specifically for hair regrowth. Now I really would like to find something as soon as possible. My hair has been falling out throughout the summer and is now substantially thinner. I'd been having some other weird issues, so I had tests done and found about this stomach issue that is apparently contributing to anemia. Chemo isn't directly responsible for the hair loss, but I think it's been a factor. I am getting treatment for anemia and modifying my diet (I'm a picky eater vegan and I'm going to be eating more things with iron and getting more calories every day from this point forward) but I want something that will directly help with my hair. I am completely freaking out about it now. It's noticeable to other people and I'm getting bombarded with questions about whether I've relapsed.

    If anyone knows of hair regrowth products that aren't gimmicks and will actually work please let me know. Also, if there are any vitamins or other things I should try I'd be grateful if you could tell me about them.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Atlas,

      You could try Rogaine. My ex who is a urologist used it when it was prescription, it is over the counter now. He noticed a difference. The only problem is that it only works as long as you use it, but that may be enough until your body is able to do it on its own.
      Also, use conditioner only on the bottom half of your hair.
      Cooking with cast iron pans add iron to the food cooked in them.

  6. QUESTION:
    Thinning hair & regrowth questions?
    So recently within the past few months i've been noticing that my hair/scalp has become far more itchy & dry ever since I began usage of Aussie Shampoo & Conditioner, which I used both once every day but then cut down to every other day. Before then I was using a 2-in-1 Shampoo/Conditioner which I had used for months & experienced no problems but more recently at the start of the year dandruff began to appear.

    Though a week ago I quit using the shampoo as i've heard shampoo in general is the primary cause to thinning hair, & i've cut back a bit on the conditioner although am still using it & intend to use it once every 4 or so days. Thankfully i've noticed a decrease in my itchy scalp & less hairs are falling out. I've also began to message the scalp too in hopes of that helping.

    And in terms of stress I do not feel affected at all, although a relative of mine has been undergoing health issues recently I overall am still content with my life, work, etc. And usually I try to avoid thinking negative.

    So I have quite a few questions?

    How often should I use conditioner? Because I work every weekday and I tend to be outdoors atleast half the time (4 hours) there which now that summer is here the wind & sun have increased.
    And is there something out there better then Aussie conditioner?

    How often should I comb my hair & massage my scalp? Combing i've been doing daily & massaging i've now began daily as well.

    How many weeks or months should it take until my hair returns to its former state & the itching/dry scalp is gone?

    And lastly should I get my hair wet everytime I shower or only get it wet when conditioning?

    Also my vitamin intake is pretty normal I tend to consume dairy/fruit daily I am also nearly 21 years of age.

    What is the best hair re-growth product for women?
    I am 20 years old and had my first child in June of 2007. Since then, my hair has become much thinner and less healthy. I know that after having a child it is common to loose some hair, but it has been over a year and I am still loosing hair! I don't use blow dryers or any other hair styling tool, i never put my hair up in rubber bands, and i use a good shampoo and conditioner. I have yet to try hair regrowth products and was curious. Does anyone have any experience with a hair re-growth product that has worked for them? I have heard of a product line called Nioxin, does anyone know if it works?
    Thanks!!!

    • ANSWER:
      There is no such thing! You would know that if you read the other questions here. This is asked a couple of times a day, and we keep telling you the same thing -- you can't make your hair grow faster or thicker. You got what you got.

      Yes, you will lose hair after having a baby. They should have told you this when you were pregnant, or near the end, so you would know what to expect. This is perfectly normal.

      Actually, while pregnant, you usually don't lose the hair you would in regular times, so when you finally deliver, those hairs all fall out at once. It will grow back. For now, it will be thinner, and when there is a sudden change, it seems even more thin than normal.

      There is nothing to worry about. This is normal.

  10. QUESTION:
    using toner on yellow strip of hair?
    I use spray fake tan and my hair is light blonde. Recently I was spraying my face and was a bit careless; a bit of the tan went onto my hair. It ended up staining it, so I have a small strip of yellow in my hair now. My regrowth isn't nearly bad enough to go to the hairdressers, so I was wondering how does one use toner? I only want to use it on that part to take out the brassy yellow from the tan and return it back to blonde.
    Purple shampoo doesn't work, I use it normally anyhow and it has made no difference.

    • ANSWER:
      Toner might work, but I've never heard of fake tan staining hair. Maybe wash it a few times with clarifying shampoo? It should strip it of all minerals and what not. If that won't work, you could try toner, but only use it on the one strip. I've used toner before. You will have to buy a bottle of toner color that most closely matches the rest of your hair. You will also need some 20 volume peroxide and an empty mixing bottle. Ask the girl behind the counter if you aren't sure what shade to get, because they have different bases including blue, gold and violet. You only need to leave them on for a few minutes, but DON'T LEAVE IT ON TOO LONG! If you get a blue or violet based toner it will turn your hair blue or purple if you leave it on too long. So like 5 to 25 minutes at the most. It's really mild so it shouldn't damage your hair. Just go to a beauty supply store like Sally Beauty and ask the girl there that knows most about hair coloring and she will tell you everything you need to know. Good luck!

    Hair growth products? What works, what have you tried. Details below! PLEASE ANSWER?

    Before you comment: don't use heat on your hair, don't wash your hair in certain shampoos and conditioners, get regular trims, remove split ends and don't dye your hair.
    I no longer dye my hair, I use heat on my har probably once every 2-3 months and even then I use heat protectant. I use all natural shampoo's, get regular trims and I have no longer got split ends since my last massive trim.
    My hair used to grow fast (like grew out from under shoulders to past armpits in about 6-9 months I think it was, but this was at 12-13 and everything was growing then, and since then it has slowed.
    Please don't tell me to be patient, or that there is nothing. That information is not helpful, and I know this sounds grouchy and I apologise, but I would like to stress that I really do not wish for those comments.

    Have you tried a product that has worked. I need one specifically for hair growth, my hair is in excellent condition as far as I am concerned. So a product which sort of helps with hair growth but makes hair the healthiest ever, I have no interest in.
    Tell me results, link a youtube video that you have seen or a blog or site of some sort. And please, no scams. Even better yet. Tell me what was a scam and what definately did not work. Thanks guys!

  13. QUESTION:
    I want to lighten my hair, mostly at the ends but hair has some history...?
    3 years ago when I was a young niave teenager I dyed my naturally light brown hair black, but a few months later lightened it using something like Colour Oops. It went an auburn colour, later I cut my long hair to shoulder length and dyed it a bit darker .I then lightened it again to blonde and dyed over it and from then on I have had gingery auburn hair which I dye the regrowth every couple of months. I have also had it cut short and I have been growing it for a year (so I think all the hair that was once black then bleached is gone) 2 months ago I dyed it using a different brand (but same colour) and it went too dark so I mixed the lightener with shampoo and washed it (you only leave the mixture on for a couple of minutes so it does no damage and just removes colour) Now as its summer I want to lighten my hair a bit from my ginger colour to strawberry blonde, and especially be light on the ends. If I used the lightener I have used before but again mixed with shampoo as it isnt so harsh would it work to lighten previously lightened (but a very long time ago hair)? My hair is in very good condition and I dont care about ginger. Please I wont go to a salon. Just your personal experience using lightener on dyed hair! Thanks!
    I will not go to a salon, but if you are a stylist on here you can reply please! and its not comlicated, I just gave you a history so everyone knows all the facts!

  14. QUESTION:
    my husband is really obsessed about his hair loss and i am beginning to worry about him.?
    My husband is 31 years old and started losing his hair about a year ago. He has been to doctors, dermatologists, hair regrowth studios e.t.c. They have all said the same thing... that it is male pattern baldness. He just refuses to accept this. His hair is much thinner than it once was but he still has a full head of hair. He can't believe that it can happen so quickly in the space of a year. He has checked so many websites, ordered shampoo's, laser combs, creams e.t.c but nothing is working. He talks about it ALL the time. He is starting to worry me as it seems to be taking over his life. We have a 7 month old baby and he is more concerned about his hair than her. I love him so much and want to help him but I don't know what more I can do. It's getting really hard to talk to him about anything because all he wants to discuss is is hair. I really need help guys. What can I do to make him feel better about himself?

  15. QUESTION:
    Male type pattern baldness, has anyone ever regrown or know someone that regrows hair without a hair transplan?
    I have male pattern baldness I suppose you would call it. It has progressed over the years. I wonder if its genetic, because no one in my family seems to have this problem. I haven't really ate well or been very active for quite a while now. I checked with a hair transplant place, but I decided that is not what I want to do. I am working on changing my lifestyle to hopefully be more active and healthy. I was curious if anyone has ever experienced regrowth of hair after a lifestyle change, or if you know anyone that has. Maybe not just a lifestyle change, but any other methods that may work, such as a laser comb, specific shampoo, etc. And I'm not talking about just a thickening of what is there, but an actual significant amount of regrowth. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      the only drug wich is approved by the FDA for hair loss is propecia, but it regrew hair just a little. It`s a shame that we don't have an effective treatment. I don`t know anybody who regrew his hair by natural ways in an advanced stage of hair loss. But being wealthy is good for the body as well the hair.

    girls and guys who know hair, and i need help!?
    alright, i had relativly blonde hair
    platinum, and after about a month my regrowth came through and so on, but as usual the bottom of my hair turned more yellow than the top and matched the extensions i recently bought. my hair looked good apart from the regrowth. anyway, went to get my hair done and asked for my whole head to be this yellow colour, and it turned out with a red sort of tinge, and im trying to bring the gold through so i can match the extensions. i was told it washes out, it has a little but its taken over 4 washes and is still to dark and redish.

    ive tried the beach water, didnt really work ahah, and blonde shampoo but that automatically strips the gold. please i need help, it would be greatly appreciated. my hair looks horrible and its quite short!

    • ANSWER:
      sorry hun, those extensions probs wont match again, best bet is to go to a salon and get all the color stripped out, back to platinum. cause the red hue isnt washing out, but maybe it takes time.

  19. QUESTION:
    Help with my breaking hair?
    You could say i have kinda over processed hair, but it honestly doesnt look as bad as youd think. its smooth and soft, like 1 mm of the ends just feel a little dead. I straighten my hair, and im not realy prepared to stop. today i look at my regrowth, its grown like 1.5cm since it was coloured last, although im pretty sure my hair just breaks at the same rate as it does grow, so it doesnt really look like its grown. how can i stop it breaking? i really want to grow it out longer. im a guy, and if i dont straighten it i literally have an afro. i Use pantene, i dont shampoo i just condition, and only do that once or twice a week. other than that, it doesnt get wet. will the pantene time restoritives work? it says it stops breakage up too 98%.. What should i do to stop it breaking? its only the ends that do.. and when it does its not even half a cm of breakage.

    • ANSWER:
      Its best to shampoo as well, because it gets rid of dirt, oils, chemicals from the air etc
      So if your just using conditioner, you actually conditioning those nasties in with your hair.

      But anyway,
      Schwarzkopf Bona Cure Repair Rescue Treatment is brilliant for the hair condition that you've descirbed. Leave it in for an hour and wrap a towel around it.
      Then rinse it out.
      Just make sure you apply the conditioner on the ends and work on them.

      Do this after you've washed your hair. And try to do it at least 3 times a week. It really works as I also have over processed hair.

      But if your not keen on that then try this:

      Works as well.

  20. QUESTION:
    I am trying to strip red hair dye out of my hair but the roots won't budge! HELP!?
    I have recently had my hair coloured (3 weeks ago) at a very reputable salon. My hair was dark blonde before and I went RED MAGENTA - Like Jonathan Ross' wife. (What was I thinking!)

    It faded out VERy quickly and turned a really crappy dusty colour. I have been told to use head and shoulders shampoo to strip it out and to be fair it's worked really well... except for my roots.

    I have even put it on the roots and let it sit for an hour but it only lightens slightly. I think it may have something to do with this hair being fresh and was just natural regrowth. Will the colour absorb more into virgin hair rather than pre dyed hair?

    If so does anyone have any recommendations or techniques to help me lift the colour?

    Thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      I had this exact same problem!
      what I done was.
      I went to my nearest Sally's hair supplies and I got a;
      Goldwell Colour Remover System, its cheap and really good.
      It says leave on for 15-20 mins but I left it on for an hour, simply because It has no ammonia or peroxide etc to harm your hair.

      When I washed it out my hair was a blondey/Orangey colour with a tiny bit of red left. The next step is to get XXL LIVE Absolute Platinum (or any shop bought bleach kit like, Born Blonde).

      Leave it on for an hour, even though it says maximum 45mins but it wont do any more damage than whats already been done in that 45 mins. It also says not to use a plastic bag to hurry up processing time but I always do! Leave it on for an hour with a cap or bag over your head so you get a yellow/gold blonde.

      Leave the hair for about 3 days and deep condition every chance you get and finally if you want to be blonde get a SEMI PERMANENT Ash Blonde dye or if you want to be brown a semi permanent ash brown dye.

      The ash colours take away all brassyness and orange tones!

      Hope I helped.

      I do this every 6 months or that because I love my red hair but always want blonde lol. I dye mine really bright red and this works for me and its not very damaging.

  21. QUESTION:
    Argh i hate my hair!!?
    So i got some more blonde highlights in my hair, and now where the regrowth was they are like white blonde whereas the rest of hair lower down is golden blonde. It looks hideous. I got some purple shampoo to even it out and it's kind of working but even if it all ends up the same colour it will be the white blonde which i think looks disgusting anyway. Should i just go back to brown? Wah wah i don't know what to do :(

    • ANSWER:
      find a shade that is similar to your original hair colour and dye your whole head that colour. when that starts growing out, it wont be as noticable that half your hair is a different colour.

  22. QUESTION:
    will my hair ever feel like real hair again ?? (i bleached it and its heaps dry)?
    I bleached my hair maybe 2 months ago and have even done my regrowth about a month ago but im not sure if i should continue..

    visiting my hairdressers we were both shocked as it snapped as she was cutting it and it feels so dry and dead, i get so many compliments to how it suits me and looks good but it doesnt even feel like real hair anymore..

    i tried washing it everyday and it worked for a while but became a bit expensive =]

    can anyone recommend any good hair ttreatments or shampoos and conditioners that may help with my problem..

    i am from australia so hair products are different everywhere but i would still love to have your help !!! thanks =]

    • ANSWER:
      try not to wash your hair everyday, that makes it a LOT worse... try washing it every other day, or if you can, every couple of days... try not to blow dry it, but if you do use "super skinny" by Paul Mitchelle before blow drying, it's a leave in serum... i believe you may be able to order it online, if not, salons usually carry it...
      also, get a lot of conditioning treatments, aussie works great and it's cheap... if you can, wash your hair, put the conditioning treatment in, and put a plastic cap over your head and put a blow dryer on it to heat it up, leave it on for about 20 minutes..
      if you can get anything that contains "hydrolized wheat protein" in the ingredients, definatley get that! usually products that contain it can only be found in salons

    How can I fix my hair colour?
    Hello! Any suggestions would be much appreciated - my hair colour has gone terrible! It's super light on top and dark underneath with no blending in between, and very obvious regrowth at the hairline because the blonde is so light. What should I do? Get serious brown foils through the top to blend it? is there another way of darkening the blonde like putting through a washout dye or using brown shampoo? should i just dye it completely dark brown? please help!!

  24. QUESTION:
    I have a problem with my hair , it's been falling out most of it occurs in one area?
    I Started using a new gel and i noticed it was a bit itchy on the scalp espicially on the top front left hairline area in the corner part. So afew days later it began to get worse, and I began to notice the burn more and my scalp looked red and bad so I washed my hair and conditioned it, so I changed my gel to wax I've been wanting wax for a while but had to finish my current gel. So starting using that I tried it and starting spiking my hair experimenting with styles so I washed it out. And woke up noticing itchiness and hair falling out and getting thinner on the left side where I mentioned. So I got to the doctor and give me scalp lotion and said that it will stop it (it's a kind of steroid that I have to use for two weeks I'm not sure how it's working I think it's got rid of the redness but I can feel stuff on my scalp and can feel short hairs in the top left part of my hair. So my parents and doctor said I was over washing and overprocessing. So I'm scared to wash it invade it gets worse, it feels like its either falling out or breaking close to the root. So is there anything I should do l, what shampoo should I use, will I get regrowth in the area I'm losing hair, has anybody else experienced this, so the main question is will I get the hair back I'm 15 and what can I do should I phone the doctor and speak again

    MAJOR HAIR LOSS @ 15. HELP!!?
    i have been noticing a HUGE clump of hair in the drains and parts that showed my scalp whenever i tied my hair this year, but i have been seeing my hair thinning since 2 years ago.
    it got to the point where i went to my dermatologist and got shots that prevented hair loss and stressed regrowth. i noticed less hair in the drains but not any significant hair growth but it seemed like it was working. and when i went this week after skipping for a good 4 months because of my insurance, the doctor told me this: " seeing from test results, your hair loss seems hereditary. there arent gonna be any results from getting painful shots every month. use rogaine for the rest of your life except when you are pregnant."

    i tried hiding my tears but ended up crying in the car.
    im only fifteen and PLUS a girl.
    i really want my hair back, but i dont know how to do so!

    i get really depressed and stressed because of my hair loss and really desperate to find a solution!

    my doctor recommended rogaine but like for all products, im doubting right now.
    has anyone used it? and i was wondering about scalp med too.
    & anyone know a good dermatologist in the new york city (5 boroughs) area???????? or hair specialists???

    IM REALLY DESPERATE. NONE OF MY FRIENDS DEAL WITH THIS PROBLEM AND UGH. i dont want too either.

    • ANSWER:
      Rogaine is what Elton John used. He went bald in his 20's. He only had a little bit of implant surgery. Rogaine does work. At least you are a girl! You can find great wigs, and they last for years! There are so many varieties, don't stress out! That is a major cause of hair loss! I know breathing lots of fresh oxygen, and massaging the scalp promotes growth as well, and hair, covered does not breathe so it won't grow. In other words, Breathe as much fresh oxygen as you can, massage your head often, and only cover it when you need to. Good luck!

    hair problems? PLEASE HELP!?
    I recently colored my hair a lighter blond (about a week and a half ago). Now my bangs are fried! They look like they've been singed. What can I do to fix them? I use Sebastian Penetraitt shampoo and conditioner and I've been leaving the conditioner on for a few minutes before rinsing it out but it doesn't seem to be working. (No need to lecture on damaging my hair by coloring it. I've already resolved to color it back to my original color once my regrowth starts to show and never color my hair again after that.) Also, I've had highlights done before and this has never happened.

  27. QUESTION:
    Dying my hair, getting back to my natural colour?
    So i am really desperate to get back to my natural hair colour (kind of mousy brown) and get hair extentions and stuff :) but i've dyed my hair a number of times in the past. and whenever i try to get a nice brown or something close to my colour (with home kits), no matter what i do, use colour shampoos/conditioners, products etc. it only stays brown for a few days then slowly starts turning to this ugly reddish/orange colour. I decided i should just give up on the home kits and wait for my colour to grow out, but ive realized now after 2 months i only have an inch or so of regrowth and i am not the patient kind of person.. ive also realized how horrible my natural regrowth looks against the reddish colour :l i might be changing schools next year and i just want nice hair and confidence :) so i kind of need to do something about it soon.

    so Q) If i go in to a hairdressers, will they be able to fix my problem? if i asked to get my hair dyed as close as possible to the natural colour, would it work and stay brown? cause i really don't want to waste money getting professional help if it's just going to go to the horrible reddish/orange all over again? and have to wait to grow it out even longer :l

    sorry for the huge question, help is EXTREMELY appreciated haha :) x

    Please help, thinning hair--I'm so frustrated!?
    Hi. I'm 32 and relatively healthy. I was taking a medication that I found out can cause hair to thin, and it did. I lost a guestimate of a third of my hair. I've been off the medication for 6 months and am noticing very little regrowth. What there is is brittle and wispy.
    I've had bloodwork and only found a couple minor deficiencies, and have been correcting them with iron and b complex, along with a multi vitamin. I do take prescription Wellbutrin, but my doctor said and research shows it doesn't cause this.
    What else can I be doing for this?! Vitamins, diet, heck, even rogaine if it actually works. And in the meantime let me know the most volumizing shampoo and conditioner you know.
    Any advice is welcome as it is starting to become very upsetting :(
