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?
Diagnosis can include blood work to test for nutrient deficiencies, scalp examination (looking at patterns and shapes of hair loss, possibly a skin biopsy) and gathering medical, lifestyle and family information.
“In the late 1980s, the standard of care was to take large grafts, plugs of 12 to 20 hairs, and implant them,” he says. “It would give either a very good or acceptable result. But some men, as they got older and lost some more hair, they got that doll’s-hair or corn-row phenomenon: Little poles of hair jutting out.”

I lose about 100 hairs everyday. very depressing. Been going on for years off and on. I have had all the tests and the doctors come up with nothing. They say that it is stress. I have noticed a lot more dandruff and my scalp itching a lot more lately. Can this have anything to do with me losing my hair? I have tried everything. I am so scared i am going to end up having to get a wig! Please help. 🙁 [email protected]
We can’t always undo what nature has in store for us. If everyone in your family was bald by age 50, you might have a hard time reversing the trend, but by using these natural remedies for hair loss, you could slow the progression of hair loss and maintain healthy locks for as long as possible.
Regrowth treatment is a growth stimulator but can only stimulate growth in areas where previously hair grew and while it is FDA approved to halt hair loss and or regrow hair in those with genetically driven hair loss it can improve the density of existing hair but cannot grow hair in areas where there never has been hair
3. Regulate Hormones – Many people who begin losing their hair early or without explanation find they have a hormonal imbalance. If you have other hormonal symptoms, look into natural supplements for hormone regulation and foods that promote healthy hormone levels.
“Two-thirds of men do get acceptable hair growth — moderate to very good hair growth,” Andrew Kaufman, MD, tells WebMD. Kaufman, a hair-transplant surgeon, is assistant professor of clinical dermatology at UCLA, and medical director of the Center for Dermatology Care, Thousand Oaks, Calif.
1) Massage – massage is likewise helpful. Massage empowers flow. As effectively noted, great flow in the scalp keeps hair follicles dynamic. Specialists propose a couple of minutes of every day head massage by hand.
Physicians are reluctant to use systemic treatment (a pill or other form of internal treatment that affects your entire system) unless they know that the hair loss is due to an excess of androgen in the system or a sensitized “over-response” to the so-called “normal” amounts of androgen in the system. That’s because these systemic treatments may lower the body’s androgen levels. Therefore, physicians often choose topical treatments (those that are applied directly to the scalp).
Crash Dieting can be very dangerous because it throws your body’s hormones out of balance if your thyroid gland is not functioning properly, as often happens when you drastically lose or gain weight. When your hormones fall out of balance, your testosterone can easily change to dihydrotestosterone, thereby killing follicle cells. In other words, diet in healthy ways.
Also known as hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and commonly prescribed at menopause, estrogen and progesterone pills and creams are probably the most common systemic form of treatment for androgenetic alopecia for women in menopause or whose estrogen and/or progesterone are lacking for other reasons.
in clinical studies of mostly white women aged 18-45 years with mild to moderate degrees of hair loss, the following response to minoxidil topical solution 2% was reported: 19% of women reported moderate hair regrowth after using minoxidil topical solution 2% 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).
Honestly speaking, i ordered two bottles of this and i was not satisfied at all. Reason why i bought 2 is because of the ingredients it says it includes. I even spoke to one of my docs and he wasnt saying that this will work. My behalf, i did not see any results. Be aware of these customer reviews, a lot of people say its good to get free bottles, i think amazon shouldn’t allow free products distributed like that.
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
Hair typically grows about 6 inches per year. A person loses about 50 to 100 strands per day. Washing your hair can cause you to lose up to 250 strands at once, but not washing it doesn’t necessarily help stop hair loss.
Hi, am not promoting any product, just sharing my experience honesty, I have always had fine, thin hair but just recently I’ve become very self-conscious about my scalp showing. I’m only 24 years old and thought this was not the age I should start balding! I’ve tried everything – Biotin, Minoxidil, many type of hair growth supplement. Yes, these supplements supported hair growth but they did not support hair re-growth like Kesha Vardhani did. I’ve been using Kesha Vardhani for six months and hope to continue it.
No. Since there is no structural problem with the hair with female-pattern hair loss, women should continue their regular hair styling regimen. Sometimes women think they should stop washing, coloring, or perming their hair, but these things won’t impact the course of hair loss or speed up the process.

Liver flush There is a lot of evidence that shows a link between a toxic liver and imbalance of hormones. When you cleanse the liver, you your body will more likely to correct the hormone balance and that will have a beneficial result on your hair loss.
How worried should men be about the sexual side effects of finasteride? “What I tell men is that it’s not something they should stress about,” says Dr. Wolfeld, “but it is something they should be aware of.” In his experience, he notes only a roughly 5 percent incidence of sexual dysfunction reported by patients who take the medication.

Most these ingredients are good, Like AVC. But using eggs everyday seems ridiculous!! I found a few months ago a formula with every holistic ingredient for growing hair… Probably not supposed to say this but why make you suffer longer…Biotopic#6. I used Rogaine too once, but I didn’t like it. nothing happened and my head itched a lot. I recommend going all natural if this is something we balding guys have to do to keep our hair on are head for the rest of our lives. it only makes since. Either use some of these tips or just buy something created from natural ingredients.
I have DHT levels at the bottom -end of the normal range, so low DHT, however I’m still going bald, so besides DHT levels it also depends greatly on the sensitivity of your hair follicles to DHT. If you have high or low levels of DHT finasteride should obviously still help you maintain your hair as the process remains the same either way.
If your doctor determines that you don’t have these other, more serious health issues, or resolving them doesn’t minimize symptoms, your next stop is the dermatologist’s office. She will perform a scalp exam and take a detailed medical and family history to determine why your hair is thinning and help you develop a treatment plan.

What is your opinion on laser combs? I went to the Men’s Club yesterday and they recommended I spend ~$800 to buy a laser band, comb or hat. What is your opinion on how those work? Sounds like snake oil to me. They also recommended I go to my dermatologist to get a prescription to reduce sebum in my hair. I have been on Fin for 11 months, Minox foam 1x/day yet hair shed hasn’t stopped. I do have a prescription for Ketoconazole shampoo but rarely use it. I read in your article that this shampoo does help with Sebum build up so I will try that. Any other recommendations for sebum reduction?
Dear All, I had similar problems with hair loss and some simple things have helped control it to a large extent. Eat a large tablespoon of roasted Flaxseeds everyday. Drink 5-6 cups of green tea. Add some soya to your daily diet. Eat one whole walnut and 4-5 almonds every morning. Eat a couple of figs and dates every day if possible. Do de stressing activities like yoga and pranayam each day. Do all of this and see wonderful results not only on your hair, but on skin and general health too! I promise you this small effort on your part will bring you very happy results.
