Castor oil – Castor oil is one of those home remedies you heard your grandparents talk about – if anyone still uses it as a home remedy, that is. Not to disparage it, however, because it has been used for centuries to treat skin disorders, constipation, and now its virtues for helping to promote skin and hair health are well known.
Side effects associated with finasteride include chills; cold sweats; confusion; dizziness; hives; swelling in the legs, arms and face; tingling; erectile dysfunction; decreased libido; and ejaculatory dysfunction; and weight gain.
“I think their effectiveness is not as significant as finasteride or minoxidil,” says Dr. Wolfeld, “however, it’s something that can be used quite easily by patients at home. If they use it two or three times a week, I tell them it can help to thicken their hair.” Results can take up to 18 months to show up, so Dr. Wolfeld stresses that patience is a virtue.
Ketoconazole is another product that fights off dandruff and slows down hair loss. It reduces the production of testosterone that eventually transforms to DHT and sticks to hair follicles. A concentration of 2% of this product is prescribed for better results.
I had a big problem going on with dandruff, which I got treated with a doctor, and it didn’t work. So, I ended the treatment. And now it has been 5 years since I have dandruff in my hair, probably too little but my stress level is also increasing. I have also stopped eating Dal which I used to for over 1.5 years. I have also tried to use shampoos like head & shoulders and others, they didn’t work at all.
If you feel that your loss of hair problem is something connected with menopause, getting the most effective treatment will not be too hard to achieve. There are actually many natural treatments and products being sold freely in the market that are effective.
“In the last 5 to 7 years there has been a boom in the understanding of hair loss,” Cotsarelis tells WebMD. “We’ve made great strides at the level of basic research. Now the question is how we can convert these findings into clinical benefits. Those kinds of leaps really take decades.”
Nizoral should be used in conjunction with finasteride and minoxidil. Don’t use it on its own and expect to huge results. In studies, men with MPB who were using Nizoral lost significantly fewer hairs over the months compared to those who weren’t. So don’t expect to regrow hair using it, but rest assured you hair loss progression is drastically slowed down.
My hair just falls since 3 years.icant find reason and remedies.I tried some oils.it didnt work.When i see the fallen hair,i observed it had nt any root. My hair is also very thin like a child.so what can i do?
That said, it seems that spot treating with minoxidil does work (even for the front of the hair), but my concern is that I read that after a few months minoxidil can cause shedding in other parts of the hair, even when not applied to those sections. Do you know anything about this?
It’s easier to hang on to your hair than replace it once it’s gone. But be careful as you explore your options. Most “miracle”products and treatments are shams. When in doubt, your doctor or a dermatologist may be able to help.
I wrote a few comments a bit ago. I suffer from thinning hair myself. My uncle runs a dermatology research unit in the western US. I am sad that you deleted my post. Its true that the only methods for MPB are rogaine and propecia. However, I consulted with them and propecia does indeed help in some cases help you KEEP the hair you do have. But has many sides. Rogaine does grow. My statement wasn’t to be confrontational it was just to make people aware there really is no real cure. I wish there was. Unless you got mad money like Tom Brady, you are risking things. I get its a confidence issue with hair I have my own anxiety. I just think people should be upfront. Propecia will not cure hair loss it will in SOME people halt it and Rogaine helps regrow but in some people has sides or doesn’t help. I think any serious agency would not suppress this from clients and or the public. There is no cure. Sadly. Thank You.
I have straight hair, but I always wished that my hair was curly. Perhaps, it’s a human psychic to want what we don’t have. I considered perming many times, but never really did it. And thank goodness I didn’t. I have used steam roller, heat tong and blow dryer few times. But whenever I used them, I felt these hot appliances did more harm than good, so I have stopped using them -for good.
Art Naturals’ Argan Oil Shampoo Hair Growth Therapy also blocks DHT, the hormone that stops hair follicles from growing and causes them to fall off easily. It also contains caffeine to stimulate the hair shaft and help hair grow faster.
