I’ve used Rogaine for several years and if used twice a day as recommended, it works well. I don’t like the “foam”, only the liquid. The foam tends to make my hair a bit ‘greasy’ or shall I say ‘oily.’ Perhaps that adds to my hair being a little oily, naturally.

The benefits of rice water for the skin and hair were a well-kept secret of the Asian countries. It contains vitamins E, K, and B6 and proteins that nourish the scalp and hair. This can, in turn, improve hair growth and make your hair voluminous (26).
“Once that hair has stopped shedding, it does regrow, at a rate of about a centimeter a month,” said Dr. Senna, who suffered from the condition after each of her pregnancies. She shares photos of herself with patients, to show she can sympathize. In one, her entire frontal hairline clearly is growing back in. “If I’d used a treatment, I would have thought it was a miracle drug,” she said.
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
“There are two brands that have emerged as leaders in terms of nutraceuticals,” says Joshua Zeichner, Director of Cosmetic and Clinical Research in Dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC. “Number one is Nutrafol—it helps provide the building blocks necessary for healthy hair growth—and the second is Viviscal.”
Bhringraj is an ancient Ayurvetic herb considered to be one of the best natural remedies for revitalizing dormant hair follicles. Bhringraj powder mixed with water (or an oil base such as coconut oil) can be prepared into a treatment for scalp and hair.
Rare side effects of finasteride include diminished sex drive and sexual function and an increased risk of prostate cancer. Women who are or may be pregnant need to avoid touching crushed or broken tablets.
Consume protein at every meal. Protein is full of a chemical called biotin, which helps your skin cells stay healthy and begin growing hair again. Biotin is great for healthy hair, skin and nails. At every meal, consume protein like eggs, peanut butter and nuts.
In clinical studies of mostly white women aged 18-45 years with mild to moderate degrees of hair loss, the following response to 2% minoxidil topical solution was reported: 19% of women reported moderate hair regrowth after using 2% minoxidil topical solution 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 minoxidil in it, for 8 months (7% had moderate regrowth; 33% had minimal regrowth).
Propecia’s 1 mg dose of finasteride can effectively lower DHT levels in the scalp by as much as 60% when taken daily. It is DHT that shrinks or miniaturizes the hair follicle, which eventually leads to baldness. This 60% reduction in DHT has proven to stop the progression of hair loss in 86% of men taking the drug during clinical trials. 65% of trial participants had what was considered a substantial increase of hair growth.
This sounds like it will work. A lot of my friends have the same length of hair as me(short or abit lower than average). But I want my hair to be a bit longer. Or grow a bit faster. So hopefully this works and thx for these tips?
So while there’s no perfect option, there are proven ways to slow your hair loss, and for many men, you can get hair back. Talk to your doctor about your concerns. Or, if reaching for medicine isn’t your style, there’s always time to talk to your barber.
Laser treatments are the latest frontier in staving off hair loss, and they’ll be the first choice for fans of sci-fi. As silly as they may sound, these treatments do work — the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology in 2014 reported a “statistically significant difference” in hair density with no “serious adverse events” or side effects.The bad news: Laser treatments tend to be expensive, progress is slow, and they don’t always produce stellar results.
But in November, after 10 years of research, Rogaine introduced a new 5 percent minoxidil formulation for women. It’s a mousse (instead of a liquid) that needs to be applied only once a day instead of twice, which means that it can be more easily incorporated into a woman’s evening skin-care routine. Teal replaces the blue and silver palette of the men’s Rogaine, and the packaging bears a lotus flower. (Also last year, Pantene introduced its Hair Regrowth Treatment for Women, which is 2 percent minoxidil.)
So many factors! And a lot of them seem to be out of our control. Hence, you should concentrate on taking care of your hair with natural hair treatments and the right diet and supplements (the factors that are most under our control). An added benefit of using home remedies is that they are inexpensive. It’s like having the cake and the cherry!
