Indeed, finasteride (also known as Propecia) works by lowering the body’s levels of the hormone DHT, which binds to receptors in hair follicles at the top of the scalp, causing them to gradually shrink and lose the ability to grow thick hair.
Dr. Carlos Wesley, a hair restoration surgeon in Manhattan, said that women in his practice respond better to P.R.P. than men do, which may have something to do with the fact that women with genetic hair loss tend to have more inflammatory cells around the follicles. From 2013 to 2014, he said, he had an 83 percent increase in female patients, in part because of P.R.P.

PRESCRIPTION REMEDIES: If you don’t respond to minoxidil, your doctor might prescribe antiandrogen medications, which may slow hair loss and even stimulate growth in some women. “They inhibit male hormones that can exacerbate hair loss,” explains Dr. Mirmirani. In select cases, she may prescribe finasteride, a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor, which blocks an enzyme that regulates the production of androgens. Because the medication causes birth defects, it is FDA approved only for men. “In premenopausal women who are no longer childbearing, finasteride can be used off label,” Dr. Mirmirani notes.

With stem cell therapy, stem cells are used to stimulate the cells which, consequently, allow the growth of new hair when transferred onto the scalp. In more detail, the process begins with the cleaning of the scalp. After that, stem cells are transported onto the part of the scalp that is affected and as these stem cells go into the scalp layer, they stimulate the follicles and encourage the growth of new hair.
Rosemary oil is by far one of the most popular and effective treatments for hair-loss as well as a handful of other scalp ailments. For best results, try massaging one to two teaspoons of rosemary oil directly onto areas of the scalp where hair-regrowth is desired.

You know what? Some people literally pull their own hair out. It’s called Trichotillomania. People with this disorder hard a hard time controlling the urge to pull out their own hair, whether from their heads or another part of their body. Sometimes they do it without thinking about it, like automatically. Other times they do it on purpose to relieve stress or tension. They may remove hair in specific ways or patterns. They may even eat the hair once they’ve pulled it out. If this describes you, talk to a medical professional. There are ways to get help if it’s become a serious problem for you.

Foods like bananas are a good idea to eat while suffering from hair loss. In the same way as safflower, potassium is a very powerful vasodilator and can seriously improve the circulation of blood at the scalp cells. It also helps to manage fluid balance in the body, which keeps the cells properly maintained, thereby preventing follicle malfunction.
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.
The lowest-level treatment is light. If you’ve done any research on balding, you’ve probably been targeted by ads for laser combs like this one. They emit a low-intensity beam meant to stimulate follicles and get them cranking out hair the way they’re meant to.

The average person loses about 100 hairs per day. There is no cure for baldness, or alopecia. There are, however, ways to slow the loss of hair and encourage new growth. These treatments can include oral medication, ointments or creams, and surgery. Physicians are reluctant to use the same oral medications for female patients as prescribed to male patients unless the doctor knows the woman’s hair loss is due to a hormonal imbalance, according to AmericanHairLoss.org.

Healthy hair growth is possible only if your diet contains enough amount of proteins in it. If, for some reason, your protein intake is low, opt for a protein powder that can supply your body (and hair) with the protein and other nutrients that it requires. Purchase a protein powder with natural ingredients and drink it as directed on the bottle.

Domen, enjoy your work. Can you expand on your suggestion regarding not having a transplant and wait for new coming treatments? Is there something on the horizon that you’ve touched on before that I missed seeing?? Is DHI the new gold standard for transplants? To your knowledge, Is this method being used in the states yet? Thanks Sir!
controlling stress is prime factor for healthy hair… however for other measures to reduce hairfall aleo Vera paste and application onion juice directly on scalp works slow but gives effiective results

Eggs are rich in protein, sulphur, iron, zinc, and selenium – all of which our bodies need for the production of hair. Extra virgin olive oil is a great natural moisturizer high in Vitamin E traditionally used for all-around skin health.

“The number one risk is erectile dysfunction,” says Zeichner. “For most patients, if this even occurs, it’s temporary. Although there have been a handful of reports of guys who have it after discontinuing the drug.”
It is important to keep blood and oxygen flowing to all parts of the body. However, many people with bad circulation find that their scalp cells die, which means that hair will stop growing. Therefore, it is important to stimulate your blood circulation and maintain proper levels of iron in your body. Iron deficiency is called anemia, and without iron, you are unable to produce red blood cells. Along with iron, it is important to stimulate the surface of the skin itself, which draws blood to the area and stimulates hair growth and life in the follicle cells. Scalp massage is one of the best ways to create this beneficial blood flow. However, if your hair loss tends to come in clumps when it is rubbed (with a brush or while shampooing your hair), you might not want to massage too often, since it will only exacerbate the hair loss.
Hi Andy the clinical trials that were done showed improvement primarily in the crown area but some men who have used it have seen an improvement in the hair line especially with hairs that were small and weak getting healthier and longer.
