It is one of the most common causes of hair loss, at least in men. Mostly, men who turn bald and experience excessive hair loss in their 40s have a history of baldness in their family. There is nothing much that can be done for this type of hair loss, though.
A diet high in protein helps the body to synthesize keratin, the key structural component of hair, skin, and nails. To combat hair loss and promote new healthy growth, add protein-rich foods such as poultry, fish, lean beef, eggs, soy, yogurt, and nuts to your weekly shopping list.
Sometimes a supplement is all you need. “The combination of fish protein, vitamin C, zinc, biotin, and niacin in Viviscal supplements encourages the body to produce healthier, thicker strands,” says New York City dermatologist Joshua Zeichner. ($50, viviscal.com)

Antioxidants are the body’s primary defense against free radicals, which can cause the premature death of the scalp’s skin cells. Use the following antioxidant-rich foods in hair washes to boost growth: avocados, bananas, lemon juice, orange juice, and honey.
Update: I think if you’re looking to save money, this is obviously a hard decision, but thinking about how much you will spend on other treatments makes using this a great option. I noticed that the price has been raised substantially on this product since it launched, i believe because they had a lower price to get people using it and now that they do, they can raise it!!! But like I said, the results are great, and speak for themselves. I’m tempted to try the shampoo I recommended alone, to see if that’s the actual reason why I’m seeing results, it would save me a lot of money! but I figure I’ll just use both, dont’ mess with a good thing, right?
Hi Shell, I would recommend Bos-Revive starter kit as a first step and if after 3 months you are not seeing an improvement I would suggest our 2% Healthy Hair Regrowth Treatment be added in as it contains Minoxidil which in clinical trials has been shown to regrow hair in areas of no growth for many.
What worked for me was doing nothing about losing my hair and just letting nature take its course. My hair started receding in my early 20s, but only a little, then it stopped for about 30 years. Then in my early 50s my hair started receding and thinning very rapidly again. I panicked until my wife told me she loves bald men and had been wishing I would go bald. She talked me into just letting myself go bald. In less than two years I went from norwood 2 or 3 to norwood 6. I don’t regret my decision to go bald and have no desire to regrow my hair. My wife and I really enjoyed watching my hair recede and thin away. I love being bald and you couldn’t pay me to regrow my hair. In retrospect, I wish I had kept on balding in my 20s all the way to norwood 7.
Generally, with age, hair fall. As a person ages, scalp loses its grip on hair, which results in hair loss. Generally, male-pattern baldness and female-pattern baldness are both result of age-related hair loss.
Hair loss is natural in both men and women. Whether you have lost hair due to a hereditary factor, health condition, or simply from dying and styling too often, it’s normal; hair loss can happen to anyone. Fortunately, there are a number of products that can help make the problem better. A trip to your doctor or dermatologist can provide you with more guidance and solutions, but in the meantime, we’ve covered some of the most effective hair growth products for women.
I wish to add that a year and half ago, I was on only Minoxidil 10% (not 5% and also not on Finestride – to be safe after reading all the discouraging posts) for almost 9 months. The only thing it did was to give a gel-like effect..but was extremely flaky!
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.
Most women with pattern hair loss don’t get a receding hairline or bald spot on top of the scalp as is common in men. Instead, there is visible thinning over the crown. In men and women, hairs are miniaturized because of a shortened growth cycle where the hair stays on the head for a shorter period of time. These wispy hairs, which resemble forearm hairs, do not achieve their usual length.
I brought the for my boyfriend 3 mths ago. And all I can say is wow!!! When he first started using it progress was slow. He was losing his hairline and the crown was almost bald. But by the end of the of the first mth his hair was visibly thicker & growing and we’re in the 3rd mth and the results just keep getting better. Only thing is you do have to keep using it to keep the hair that regrows. At 40.00 for a 2mth supply I think its well worth it.
1) cut off and split an aloa vera leaf then rub this split leaf into UR scalp..dont wash off for 3 hours 2) drain a fresh cocnut split and scape the soft ‘flesh’ into a container leave in fridge for 3 days then rub into scalp leave for over an hour before washing scalp
There’s a reason so many shampoos and conditioners are coconut-based. Coconut is known for its potent moisturizing abilities. Incidentally, one of the leading reasons for hair loss is having a damaged scalp due to dryness. To naturally reverse fall-out caused by dryness and bring your hair follicles back to good health, massage coconut milk into your roots and let sit for 10 minutes a day.
For household chemical products, there is no current regulatory requirement that companies disclose full ingredient lists. For personal care products, ingredient disclosure is required, although it may include generic ingredient names that are not specific enough to support hazard evaluation. To create an incentive for full ingredient disclosure, GoodGuide caps a product’s score if it lacks complete ingredient data or lists generic names that do not support chemical-specific evaluations. The caps applied are described in the following table:
GET A VOLUMIZING CUT: In most cases, shorter cuts are kinder to thinning hair. “The longer your hair grows, the more likely it is that sections will separate and reveal your scalp,” explains Mancuso. Whatever length you choose, ask for interior layers, which are placed throughout your cut, not just on the ends, to add fullness.
Your amount of hair loss is different than that shown on the side of this carton or if your hair loss is on the front of the scalp. Minoxidil topical solution 5% is not intended for frontal baldness or receding hairline

A common condition, alopecia areata usually starts as a single quarter-sized circle of perfectly smooth bald skin. These patches usually regrow in three to six months without treatment. Sometimes, white hair temporarily regrows and then becomes dark. The most extensive form is called alopecia totalis, in which the entire scalp goes bald. It’s important to emphasize that patients who have localized hair loss generally don’t go on to lose hair all over the scalp. Alopecia areata can affect hair on other parts of the body, too (for example, the beard or eyebrows).
Hairpieces: Among the time-honored ways to add hair temporarily are hairpieces or hair weaving, in which a mesh is attached to the remaining hair and artificial or human hair of similar color and texture is woven with existing hair. Quality varies considerably with price; also, hairpieces and weaves may stretch, oxidize, and loosen.
This is yet another oil that is commonly recommended by alternative healers for hair loss in women. Basically, emu oil functions as a moisturizer and stimulates hair growth in the follicles. This can be applied directly to the scalp.
The exact process by which this occurs is not known. Regaine for Women Regular Strength works best in women who have general hair thinning of the scalp. Those who are younger or have been losing hair for a short period of time are likely to respond best to Regaine for Women Regular Strength.
Hi while it is not uncommon for excessive shedding to occur after giving birth , it usually self corrects after a few months. However some women do continue to shed and there are several reasons that this may have happened in your case. First off studies shoe that women density and diameter begin to change in our mid 30’s which is about the time peri- menopause can start leading to shifts in normal balance and just like skin, our hair can start ageing and over time lose density. On top of that stress, diet and lack of certain vitamin can contribute, low vitamin D, B’s, iron and zinc have an effect.Even declining thyroid while not hypothyroid yet it still can affect our bodies.
Try these effective home remedies for longer, stronger, and shinier hair. Usually, a combination of a few remedies works best. For long-lasting effects, make the recommended changes in your diet as well.
If it’s serious, consider an Rx. Some women are genetically predisposed to female-pattern hair loss, and birth control pills can suppress overproduction of male hormones. At menopause, thinning increases; if you’re on hormone therapy, it may minimize hair loss.
Hi, do you believe that finasteride is not as effective in older men, say age 55 and over? Data seems to be mixed. Are you still experiencing minor or no sides on the finasteride? Thanks for a very thorough article with unbiased information.
Burdock root is an anti-inflammatory rich in fatty-acids. Burdock root oil can be used alone or combined with other herbs such as rosemary, lavender, or sage to improve scalp health and stimulate new hair growth.
Viviscal is like a hair super-product. I first took notice of this when a friend of mine cut her hair super short. Within a month it looked like her hair had already grown two inches! She told me she’d been using Viviscal. I recently started taking this, and y’all, my hair is growing like a weed. I got three inches cut off two months ago, and my hair is already longer than it was before I cut it. It definitely works, but you should of course check with your doctor before taking ANY kind of supplement.
It’ll take time, probably in near future you’d ask for these at your doctor’s office. However, this doesn’t mean there isn’t any effective hair loss treatment today. There is a permanent cure for this problem but it can be costly.

Now on Finestride, I can visibly feel that the hair strands are getting thicker – so that gives a slight dense appearance (obviously, I can’t expect more than that after week 10, realistically) with the hair-fall completely stopped.
