Hi Courtney, it is not unusual to shed excessive amounts of hair after surgery as your body adjusts to the change. One of the biggest challenges is getting enough protein and nutrients as hair is high in metabolic activity and requires a lot of energy to grow. First off I would recommend our Vitality supplement for women as it is a good basic multi with the added benefit of Horsetail extract to helot keep hair anchored longer so you have less shedding.Make sure you are getting adequate protein( try a protein drink) EFA oil is also helpful. The Bos Defense starter kit may help slow the shedding as well over time
“A third of patients maintain the hair that they have,” says Zeichner, “a third grow hair back, and a third still continue to see hair thinning—though often the rate of loss is less than they saw before. So, if you look at that, at least two thirds of patients see improvement.”
m 20 yrs old…….. and m facing a problem of hair fall ………..my hair fallen evryday whenever i take a bath and use oil to massage my hair please give me some special advice by which my hair fall get control and they get dense so please help me out…………
All at once. If you are sure it’s MPB, start finasteride (and Nizoral) now and move on. Minoxidil will just delay the inevitable, while fin will potentially stop (or even reverse in some cases) the hair loss. The cure for baldness is to start treatment early. The chances for real sides are non-existent.
At present, I am still using the Leimo Hair Treatment Pack as part of my daily hair care routine. I am indeed very thankful to Leimo because without it, I would have no way of stopping my hair loss problems. Without it, I probably would have had a worse case of excessive hair loss or major hair thinning.
I find it misleading that you characterise finasteride as ‘safe’. Even the original studies by Merck decided on an incidense of side-effects of about 3% comapred to placebo. those seemed to be reversible by stopping treatment, but still. people should decide for themselves how much risks they’re willing to take to cure they’re hair-loss.
In clinical studies of mostly white women aged 18-45 years with mild to moderate degrees of hair loss, the following response to minoxidil was reported: 19% of women reported moderate hair growth after using minoxidil for 8 months (19% had moderate regrowth; 40% had minimal regrowth). This compares with 7% of women reporting moderate hair regrowth after using the placebo, the liquid without the active ingredient in it, for 8 months (7% had moderate regrowth, 33% had minimal regrowth).
I have a rather unique story and thought I would share it. First, I chose Equate for the simple reason I am paying substantially less than I would had I purchased a brand name with the same ingredient, Minixodil, and strength. With that said, I purchased Equate and started using it immediately after bilateral hernia surgery. I was under anesthesia and read a few reports that anesthesia, may cause temporary thinning of hair. My hair is thin and if I were to lose some hair, even if it was temporary, I am sure it would make me uncomfortable. So, I figured, why not use Minixodil for what I believed would strengthen and prevent hairs that may be vulnerable to falling out, not fall out. And being I never used it, maybe add some thickness to my hair. Here is where I got VERY lucky. Minixodil, works its magic on the Crown (Vertex) of the head or scalp. (I have heard from people who used it claim they saw thickness towards the top) For me, I not only saw thickness in the Crown area, but also top and front and I figured out why this happened. Some time ago, I had hair transplants. My doctor moved hair from the crown (the donor sites) to the front and top. (he did an unbelievable job by the way). There is not doubt, some of the transplants did not hold, and it is to be expected, but won’t be noticed once the regrowth starts taking place. It is also important to note, it is not so much that Minixodil works its magic on the crown area of the scalp, but rather, it is the hair follicles that are located in the crown area of the scalp are genetically coded to NOT fall out. (unlike the follicles on top and front of scalp). So, the transplants that were moved to the front of my head, and the ones that didn’t take hold, it is my belief that Minixodil stimulated those dormant follicles to grow hair. Hence, I had growth on the top and front, as well as the crown area of my scalp. In addition, I was ready to get another round of hair transplants and would have, but due to an unforeseen, and serious event, that plan came to a screeching halt. However, with this other unexpected event, that is, the unexpected hair growth, my hair looks pretty awesome. All I expected was to keep my hair from thinning a bit, “if” in fact, the anesthesia might cause that to happen. Talk about luck. Anyway, for the price, do try it. Also, it was early in my third month that I started to notice the regrowth. In addition, I have heard that people who have recently started losing hair in the front, even a year past, Minixodil may stimulate the growth of those areas. Best of luck, Guys and Girls, and remember, if you start to freak out over hair loss, DON’T. I am not here to sell or promote Hair Transplantation, but….. they work.
Joseph Greco, Ms. Telford’s practitioner, who shares a patent for a process to remove growth factors from platelets, said he gets results in 80 percent of patients, more than half of whom are female. Roughly half of them fly in and out, often on the same day, he said, because the procedure doesn’t require downtime and has minimal side effects. (Small clinical studies suggest further research is necessary but acknowledge the procedure’s “excellent safety profile.”)
The easiest and most effective way to grow hair I found is by massaging your scalp, either with oil or even your bare finger tips. Invert your hair upsidedown and massage your scalp for 2-4 mins. daily for a week. It can help you grow hair few inches in a week. I saw this tip in websites so I thought I would definitely try it out, and it worked!
Finasteride was originally created to fight prostate cancer. It works by decreasing the amount of a hormone called DHT in the scalp. DHT appears to cause hair follicles in the scalp to become thinner, so by decreasing the levels of DHT, hair regrowth may increase and hair loss may slow down.
Thanks. My shedding still hasn’t stopped. Now on month 14 of propecia, + keto + minox. I talked to my Dr about trying DUT . . . he said no given it isn’t FDA approved. But I’m thinking of increasing my dose of propocia from 1.25mg (1/4 of a proscar pill) to 2.5mg (so take half a pill. Anything wrong with doing that???
Since the FDA pulled every 10-15% minoxidil and anything containing azelaic acid, the golden days of minoxidil products with added DHT blocking substances are over, and a lot of people went back to using regular 5% minoxidil.
Many men, and less often women, often deal with the hardships of hair loss, and accepting this problem can be quite difficult. They may have known it was coming for some time, by watching the other people in their family deal with the same issue, but that doesn’t make it any easier. Fortunately, while hair loss is largely genetic, a good diet can encourage healthy hair growth and even possibly reduce balding. Furthermore, there are a number of natural remedies for hair loss and hair thinning, so you don’t need to go straight to the drug store for pharmaceuticals.
What is your opinion on laser combs? I went to the Men’s Club yesterday and they recommended I spend ~$800 to buy a laser band, comb or hat. What is your opinion on how those work? Sounds like snake oil to me. They also recommended I go to my dermatologist to get a prescription to reduce sebum in my hair. I have been on Fin for 11 months, Minox foam 1x/day yet hair shed hasn’t stopped. I do have a prescription for Ketoconazole shampoo but rarely use it. I read in your article that this shampoo does help with Sebum build up so I will try that. Any other recommendations for sebum reduction?

This condition is linked to a hormone imbalance caused by a testosterone derivative called dihydrotestosterone, or DHT. The level of testosterone increases in post-menopausal women. If it converts to DHT, the DHT binds to hair follicles and kills them. That’s why female pattern baldness usually strikes women over 50.
