Coming from a lady, balding is never a good thing for men. Fortunately, as my (ex) boyfriend discovered, there are a lot of products females use that can help with hair growth for men. Try Fast Shampoos and you will be amazed. At least my ex was! At least I didn’t have to keep wondering why my shampoo and conditioner bottles were emptying.
Use gentle hair products. When you notice your hair is thinning, making the switch to all-natural, gentle hair products is a good idea. Many shampoos, conditioners, hair sprays and other products contain chemicals that are hard on the scalp and hair and can speed up hair loss and damage the hair that’s left.
Minoxidil: This medicine is applied to the scalp. It can stop hairs from getting thinner and stimulate hair growth on the top of the scalp. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved minoxidil to treat hair loss. It is the only hair re-growth product approved for men and women. A dermatologist may combine minoxidil with another treatment.
Licorice root has a number of beneficial qualities when it comes to naturally treating hair loss. It works to alleviate a dry, irritated, or scabbed skull. But, most importantly, licorice root opens pores and strengthens weakened hair follicles, which is often the cause of hair loss in the first place. To start seeing instant results, apply weekly or consume orally in the form of licorice tea.
Men who’ve tried it and spoke about on the internet also claimed it didn’t have much effect. This is, of course, anecdotal evidence. But there was never any hype about saw palmetto producing any significant results.
Your body sends the nutrients you consume to your organs and other essential tissues first, so even if your body is receiving enough nutrition to remain healthy, it may not be receiving enough to keep your hair in good shape.
I am thinking of buying Khadi henna to colour my hair. I am suffering lately from hair loss and I have stopped using chemicals on my head. Can you please tell me if you know this brand. Here in Europe is very difficult to find a good brand.
Women’s Rogaine contains a 5% concentration of minoxidil. Minoxidil opens up blood vessels which seems to help hair follicle function. This is possibly the best treatment if you have genetic female pattern (or male pattern) hair loss.
Besides, with Nizoral A-D you get the added benefit of a strong dandruff fighting shampoo. And you know how dandruff is: an unwanted visitor that shows up on your clothes at the worst possible moments (not that there’s ever a good moment to get dandruff).
Thx Domen for the useful info. Curious to know why you didn’t cover laser therapy as offered by Advanced Hair Studio? Or doesn’t the laser treatment combined with sawpalmtto tabs and minoxodil work? If it does work and complete the 6 month program, will the growth be reversed if I stop using the products?
It’s important to make sure that you don’t take medications that could actually cause hair thinning. There are many medications that have been linked to hair loss. Make sure you know the possible side effects of your current medications as well as your supplements. If you know one of them may cause hair loss, that could be the culprit right there. Below I list some of the most common medications that can contribute to thinning hair and hair loss.
Follicular unit transplant (FUT) is the traditional hair transplant method which involves extracting a linear strip of hair bearing skin from the back or the side of the scalp. The strip is then dissected to separate individual grafts.
Finasteride is the generic name for the brand name drugs Proscar and Propecia. Finasteride was originally developed by Merck as a drug to treat enlarged prostate glands (Proscar). During the trials on men with prostate problems an intriguing side effect of hair growth was observed. Since finasteride had already been approved by the FDA to treat enlarged prostates in men, Merck and Company decided to pursue the possibility of developing finasteride as the first pill to treat male pattern baldness.
During this procedure, your surgeon removes tiny plugs of skin, each containing a few hairs, from the back or sides of your scalp. He or she then implants the plugs into the bald sections of your scalp. You may be asked to take a hair loss medication before and after surgery to improve results.
Nizoral should be used in conjunction with finasteride and minoxidil. Don’t use it on its own and expect to see 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.
The Chinese Hibiscus flower also contributed to a great extent to the reduction of my hair loss. Besides treating my hair loss problems, it also helped to cure dandruff, thicken my hair, prevent premature graying, and avoid split ends as well as other general hair loss issues.
