Eliminate stress in your life. Although androgenic alopecia is not reported to be stress related, stress can cause hair loss. In order to keep your hair healthy, avoid factors that trigger stress in your life. Three types of stress-related hair loss conditions are recognized:
Men with genetically-driven hair loss have more options for hair regrowth, continues Kobren, thanks to a drug called finasteride, which is marketed as Propecia by the pharmaceutical giant Merck. Finasteride works by blocking the creation of dihydrotestosterone, which fuels male pattern baldness, and double-blind clinical trials have shown that finasteride can noticeably thicken men’s hair.

Hi Fun guy, the 5% regrowth has been shown to work best in those with mild to moderate hair loss. If you still have some very fine hairs on top it could help but takes 2-3 months to see results starting. If you very little hair left, the hair follicles may be too damaged to stimulate regrowth. You may want to consider talking with a Bosley INC counselor who can asses your level of thinning and discuss other medical options
Those who think that they are loosing hair for a few days or even a few weeks in a row, need not worry as the hair to periodically fall out to allow the new ones to grow through. You only have a problem if new hair growth is not present, ie you are loosing more hair than the new ones are growing out.
The hair thickening shampoo Nioxin didn’t help. Neither did Rogaine. Then she heard about Harklinikken, a Danish company offering a customized hair extract that’s given only to those who pass a fairly rigorous selection process.
I remember years back when I first tried minoxidil it was in liquid form, and for the first 5 days, my scalp was itching red. After that, my body got used to it and the redness went away without changing the product. But maybe that’s just me.
Are you going to use it directly on you face and chest? It will help, but a cheaper alternative would be regular minoxidil. You don’t need DHT blocking properties in minoxidil to grow facial and chest hair.
There can be several factors behind hair loss such as environmental effects, aging, too much stress, excessive smoking, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, genetic factors, scalp infections, use of wrong or chemically enriched hair products, certain medicines and medical conditions like thyroid disorder, autoimmune diseases, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), iron-deficiency anemia, and chronic illnesses.

The laser uses a 650nm wavelength of red light to speed up cell metabolism and reactivate hair follicles. While you’re treating your hair with light therapy, you can also take vitamin and supplements, use hair restoration shampoos, and also apply topical treatments. Combining light therapy with another method usually speeds up the growth.
With men, regrowth in the hairline seems to be more difficult based on the clinical trials, but we do find it helps to strengthen the hair and stop the progression of thinning there for most. Use for at least 2-3 months to see results
Using Rogaine is very helpful and has positive effects on the people that are using it regularly but just like other chemical products, this has side-effects too that can harm the consumer like sudden change of hair color which is an effect of the Rogaine itself having different chemicals mixed in, rapid growth of unwanted hair in the face which is caused by the effect of nourishing the hair follicles at the scalp going down into the face, itchiness of the scalp that is caused by the product and may lead to painful scalp wounds.
