Chemotherapy is the treatment of cancer with drugs that can destroy cancer cells. These drugs often are called “anticancer” drugs. Chemotherapy is often used with other treatments. Coping with side effects (fatigue, nausea, vomiting, pain, hair loss, infection, diarrhea, constipation, fluid retention, mouth and throat problems) are important to understand when undergoing chemotherapy treatment. It is important to eat well during chemotherapy, and get the support you need both during and after treatment.
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.
January 24, 2018 – One of our finalists, The Capillus82 Laser Cap, is no longer available on Amazon, so we’ve removed it from this review. Rogaine is still our top pick, but keep your eyes peeled for a larger update in the next few months. We’ll take fresh look at some new additions to the hair loss market, including products that use finasteride — an ingredient that (up until recently) has been prescription-only.

I quit Minoxidil after the first week because of accelerated/increased hair fall. I believe I made the correct decision because from the very next day, being only taking Finestride, my hair-fall completely stopped. That was quick and till now, on week 10, these is no hair loss, just being on Finestride 1 mg daily.

You must know there is real concern out there about finasteride causing severe depression in men, leading to suicide in some cases. I understand there are at least a few major lawsuits in progress. What’s your take on this?

When the cause is nutrient deficiency or stress, for example, the hair loss is typically temporary. In such cases, hair growth can be encouraged by addressing the underlying problems: working to build up the body’s stores of zinc, boosting iron levels and better managing stress — though experts note that it may take several months to see progress.
There’s some evidence that peppermint oil can help with hair growth. Rosemary oil has also been traditionally used to increase blood circulation on the scalp. A 2013 study found that rosemary leaf extract improved hair regrowth in mice.

The easy-to-use spray bottle allows you to apply the serum directly to your scalp, or you can spray it onto your hands to rub into parts of your scalp. Each bottle offers a three month supply and should be used twice daily. It has outstanding reviews online, partly because it does not leave a sticky residue or cause preliminary hair shedding like most other regrowth treatments.

Vigorous rubbing of scalp with fingers after washing hair with cold water is one of the most effective home remedies for hair loss. Ideally, scalp should be rubbed vigorously until it starts to tingle with the heat. The exercise will activate the sebaceous glands and improve circulation of blood across the scalp.
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.
Hey, Jox. I don’t believe so. In terms of blocking DHT, Nizoral is not as strong as Finasteride. And minoxidil just helps regrow hair, it does not do anything about the DHT. I suggest you take finasteride or some other potent hair loss treatment like RU, after transplantation.
“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.”
My hair was thinning gradually over the years but I had so much hair that it really wasn’t a big deal. By last summer I was really bald. I barely had any hair on top. I had a hair [@]ysis done from Herbal Healer Acaemy and it turns out I was malnutritioned. My body was not absorbing minerals like it should especially iron. I was anemic which causes hair loss. Plus i needed zinc and some others. My naturopathic specialist told me what to take. I orded it from her and all my hair grew back.
The Scalp Med products combine effective hair growth formulas with shampoos and sprays to thicken your existing hair. However, after their introductory offer expires, the cost for their system really shoots up.
Please try it, I am not selling anything. I just want you to try something that REALLY works for most people. I remember searching and reading and hoping that someone really found something that could truly help but I never really did. I knew of the healing it could do by providing energy to the cells below the dermis and it not having any bad side effects. The bulbs can get hot after awhile, so I shut off after it feels to warm. Let it cool down and then start again. If you want to keep your hair and grow more faster. Just try this, good luck!!
“We don’t understand why, but men do not lose hair in the back of the head,” says Zeichner. “In a transplant, those hairs are moved individually or in small groups to other areas of the scalp to recreate a natural-appearing hair line.”
Apple cider vinegar has many benefits for your hair. It stimulates the hair follicles and help them grow faster. It also cleanses scalp apart from maintaining the pH balance of hair which accelerates their growth. You just have to use this vinegar as an after-wash rinse. Add apple cider vinegar with water and use it as a final rinse for your hair each time you shampoo your hair. Although it has a mild smell that doesn’t bother anyone too much yet if you want your hair smell good even when they grow with apple cider vinegar, just add a couple of drops of some essential oil (such as lavender oil) to your mixture of water and vinegar.
Male pattern baldness (also known as androgenic alopecia) is estimated to affect about 50 million men in the United States. It starts with hair loss above the temples generating the typical “M” shape. Over time, the loss of hair continues around the top of the head and sometimes claims the hair on the sides and rear of the head as well, leading to complete baldness. If you experience male pattern baldness and do not feel comfortable with your appearance, there are certain treatment options available.
Although many medications list “hair loss” among their potential side effects, most drugs are not likely to induce hair loss. On the other hand, cancer chemotherapy and immunosuppressive medications commonly produce hair loss. Complete hair loss after chemotherapy usually regrows after six to 12 months.
Phthalate-free: A product that either carries an unqualified on-pack statement indicating that the product is free from phthalates, or carries an unqualified on-pack statement ‘no phthalates,’ or a product which is never formulated with phthalates, as confirmed by the manufacturer.
Hair Regeneration is another technique under stem cell therapy which is also a non-surgical, non-invasive method of treating baldness or hair loss. Basically, an adult’s stem cell that has wound-healing properties is injected to the scalp.
Rub olive oil into your skin. Olive oil can make your scalp grow hair back naturally by cleaning out your pores. Dead skin, dirt and sweat build up in your hair follicles every day, and they become clogged. Olive oil can flush the dirt and dead skin from your hair follicles so they can grow hair again. Put a few drops of olive oil into your hand and massage into your scalp.
The problem is PRP isn’t available at many clinics. The doctors offering this treatment are relatively small. However, this year the treatment can become a widespread adoption at many medical centers.
The second member of ‘The big three’ and another extremely effective FDA approved hair loss treatment is minoxidil. Minoxidil was originally an oral medication for high blood pressure, after a while, however, patients started reporting hair growth everywhere on their body, and so the minoxidil topical solution for treating hair loss was born.
It’s not as uncommon as you may think: As many as 5% of women under 30 and 60% of those older than 70 are affected, she says. At the recent meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology in Miami Beach, Fla., Mercurio discussed common forms of hair loss in women and treatment options.
