My hair has always been my pride and joy. I figured since it is pretty damn healthy, it could deal with some bleach damage. And I figured the master stylist who did all the color-corrections would know how much would be too much. I was wrong, and now I want to burst into tears every time I look at my hair or touch it. I just don’t know what to do. my hair has also NEVER been shorter than this and it breaks and falls out. What should i do to regrow hair?
According to practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine, hair health is tied to two things: kidney energy and the blood, which nourish the hair. The solution: acupuncture and Chinese herbs. While there isn’t a lot of hard science to back this up, Maureen Conant, a TCM practitioner at Full Bloom Acupuncture in Seattle, says that she’s seen women’s hair stop falling out and then gradually regenerate after a few months of weekly treatments. (Here are six more reasons to give acupuncture a try.)
To us, that meant any product with zero proven ingredients, case studies, or FDA clearance — which shrunk our list by a whopping 180 contenders. That’s right, there are only three treatments that have actually been cleared by the FDA and supported with clinical studies: finasteride (commonly marketed as Propecia), minoxidil, and laser treatments. And, since finasteride is prescription-only, it left us with two.

Sage has been shown to increase hair density, rosemary has been shown to stimulate hair growth, and aloe vera has been used to promote hair growth for centuries, says the Thai review. Find them all in John Masters Organics Zinc & Sage Shampoo with Conditioner ($22; amazon.com).
Shikakai, a shrub native to warmer regions of Asia, has been used for thousands of years as an herbal hair cleanser and hair loss preventative. All aerial parts of the plant can be ground into powder or dried for later use. By itself, shikakai powder added to water or oil can be massaged into hair and scalp to promote new growth, strengthen roots, and clear up skin conditions like dandruff which may cause hair-loss.
I too had similar hair problems and it started since my PG. I spent thousands or rupees to cut it down but it is of no use. I also read lot of blogs and tried all methods. Now luckily I found out one hair loation which is working for me in eliminating dandruff and keep hair fall at the bay. Pls try Betnovate Scalp Loation, apply on scalp and smoothly speard it with finger tips and wash in the morning. I sticked to the schedule of washing hair everyday but applied mild shampoo like clairon anti flake every alternate day. Now hair fall has subsidised and I see hair growth also. I also suggest to follow few things below
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).
Although not as powerful as finasteride and minoxidil, it’s an excellent addition to your anti hair loss arsenal. To win this ‘war,’ you need every weapon you can get your hands on. Particularly one that’s relatively safe to use.
Apply one mL 2 times a day directly onto the scalp in the hair loss area. See carton and enclosed leaflet for complete directions. Using more or more often will not improve results. Continued use is necessary or hair loss will begin again. When using this product do not apply on other parts of the body. Avoid contact with the eyes. In case of accidental contact, rinse eyes with large amounts of cool tap water. Some people have experienced changes in hair color and/or texture.
Domen, I was reading some articles and also the links you’ve provided in your other comments above – they say both Finesteride and Minoxidil only check further hair loss and thicken existing hair – but both can’t re-generate hair that’s already gone from bald spots. I guess the effectiveness of these 2 medications are quite proportionate to age of the native! At 42, I guess, I am old ? Atleast according to Indian standards!!
Your time with your doctor is limited, so preparing a list of questions will help you make the most of your time together. List your questions from most important to least important in case time runs out. For hair loss, some basic questions to ask your doctor include:
In an effort to increase circulation, adding safflower to your diet is a good idea. Safflower is known to be a good vasodilator that specifically opens up the blood vessels in the scalp. Vasodilators reduce blood pressure by relaxing blood vessels, thereby increasing blood and oxygen to the scalp cells so that hair growth is stimulated.

Ideal for use at the early stages of hair thinning, this fast-working hair loss treatment is specially formulated for women and is clinically proven to regrow up to 25% more hair.

This hair regrowth treatment comes in a topical solution that is easy to use: Simply apply 1 milliliter directly to your scalp twice daily and massage it through your hair. And like all Rogaine products, it is designed to fit easily into your daily beauty regimen.
The Indian gooseberry or amla provides a great many benefits to your hair and scalp. It contains tannins, vitamin C, antioxidants, kaempferol, flavonoids, and Gallic acid. All these nutrients help in enhancing the hair texture. Amla also contains Vitamin C, the lack of which in the body is one of the major reasons for hair loss.
Onion Juice for hair loss and dandruff is the oldest remedy that not only strengthens your hair root, it is also good hair conditioner. It also promotes hair growth. 2 tablespoon onion tablespoon aloe vera juice or aloe vera tablespoon olive oil
Both the bristles and the handle of this Paddle Hair Brush are made out of bamboo. There are advantages to this. One, it won’t melt when you’re using it to style your hair. Two, the bristles are widely spaced so you end up yanking tangles a lot less. And three, it stops that annoying static that some plastic and nylon hair brushes seem to encourage.
You also want to eat foods high in omega-3 fatty acids—such as salmon and mackerel—two or three times a week, or sprinkle a tablespoon or two of freshly ground flaxseed onto salads or cereal each day.
Tinea is the medical word for fungal infection, and capitis means head. Tinea capitis is fungal infection of the scalp that for the most part affects school-age children. Tinea capitis is more common in black African or African-American scalps. This condition is rare in healthy adults. Bald spots usually show broken-off hairs and is accompanied by a dermatitis. Oral antifungals can penetrate the hair roots and cure the infection, after which hair grows back. Sharing hats or combs and brushes may transmit tinea capitis.
So, include a variety of foods like milk, cheese, yogurt, chicken, eggs, whole grains, salmon, spinach, broccoli, bell peppers, cabbage, parsley, grapefruit, avocado, brown bread, oats, and alfalfa in your diet to nourish your hair and scalp. Plus, drink fresh fruit and vegetable juices, such as orange, grapefruit, carrot, beet, and lettuce juice.
Ladies how nice to see everyone pushing each other to get better. Don’t forget to also, drink lots of water, protect your hair from the burning sun, at least your scalp, and no SMOKING. Smoking are chemicals in your body which are not good, it also gives you wrinkles. Also placing a filter in your shower head can also help your scalp, because there are chemicals in our waters and it gets in our hair. Try to use things that do not have chemicals like alcohol, go all natural. Avoid chemicals that are in shampoos as much as possible. Read the labels. Avocado is also good for hair and your heart. Good Luck ladies.
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.
I use red Light therapy. Red L.E.D. Lights. I started way before that red Led helmet came out. Any red Led (light emitting diode) will work, this is not just a plain red bulb. There is a difference. There are so many now for face treatments and other uses but if it is LED then it will all work the same. I use it for all kinds of things. It will heal my bruises, cuts, burns, muscle aches, etc. it makes everything heal so fast. Even helps my hair grow fast. I will hold it up against my scalp in thinning areas and leave it there for 10 min and then move to another spot. There are no side effects except it makes my hair GROW!! You can tell within a week! Not a month or 3 months. When I would get sinus pain, it would be gone in 5 minutes by just holding the light against my face where my sinus pain would be. Please just google red Led light…….I am not trying to promote a certain website or product. Don’t add therapy or treatment because then you will pull up red led lights marked way up. All red LED lights work the same, whether they are made for your head or to light up a Christmas tree. My first red LED light was a Halloween spotlight that had 5 one watt bulbs in it which cost me $4, that I held up against my scalp and works the same as the one I have now.

I noticed years before that my part on the top of my head seemed to be thinning out. I tried to tell myself it was my imagination. Then, I was asked to try Rogaine Foam for Women for giving my honest opinion. I honestly had given up most hope, and thought I’d have to get surgery or just accept the fact that I was going to be a 40-year old balding woman.
even i have a little bit of dandruff n pimples, and i consume a lot of green vegetables and fruits and also a lot of water, even good amount of sleep. I even oil my hair once or twice a week and even taking homeopathic medecines.
One is how much emphasis the company places on compliance, the major stumbling block in the efficacy of any treatment, said Dr. Senna, an author of studies on the subject. Prospective users are questioned about their ability to stick to a regimen because the extract must be applied every day, and they are told that the more conscientious they are, the better. Users are also reminded and encouraged with regular check-ins.
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition in which the body attacks its own hair follicles. Most patients, however, do not have systemic problems and need no medical tests. While alopecia areata is frequently blamed on “stress,” in fact, it may be the other way around; that is, having alopecia may cause stress.
Bhringraj (Eclipta alba), also called false daisy, is a species in the sunflower family with a reputation in Ayurvedic tradition as an herb that supports hair growth. Studies in mice have shown that extracts of the herb do show better hair regrowth than minoxidil (Rogaine). However, more research is needed to confirm these effects in humans.
If you have hair loss due to other issues like pregnancy, childbirth, or illness, you have a lot of treatments to choose from (like anything but Minoxidil). Do keep in mind that if you are ill or pregnant, it’s a very good idea to speak with your doctor before taking anything or starting a course of treatment.
Alopcia areata is not related to a more serious condition known as cicatricial alopecia, in which the immune system attacks the stem cells in the bulge of the folicle. This results in permanent hair loss.
Anthralin is a thick, tarry substance that is applied to the hair daily and then rinsed off at night. Typically prescribed for psoriasis, anthralin ointment or cream can be used to grow hair for patients suffering from alopecia areata.
Minoxidil is definitely worth a try before you do a hair transplant. It works differently compared to finasteride, instead of addressing the main cause of hair loss (DHT), it focuses on regrowing hair. So since you’ve got the DHT part covered by finasteride, there’s a good change minoxidil might regrow some hair and help stop future hair loss.
