This article is COMPREHENSIVE and sticks to the tried and tested (read scientifically proven) treatment methods. For me, if you’re suffering from pattern baldness, then the best chance you have is the Big Three. That said, it is worth potentially trying other, more natural, treatments if your hair loss isn’t aggressive and if you have an aversion to medicated products. I’m not talking about snake oil here. There are some treatments out there that, while not a primary treatment mode, can help to at least arrest hair loss in milder cases. As always with hair loss it’s a question of probabilities. I don’t think I’ve come across a product that works 100% of the time for 100% of the people. But the best chance undoubtedly comes with the FDA approved products to date. Also loved the future pipeline chart. Fantastic view of what will (hopefully) be more effective treatments in the future.
Hair Cloning is one form of hair multiplication. And if it does not work effectively, then another option is to pluck active hairs from the scalp and then these are planted on to the balding areas of the head. Success is achieved when hair grows because there were enough stem cells carried by the plucked hair when it was transplanted.
In December 1997, the FDA approved a 1mg dose of finasteride for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness) in men. Propecia is the first drug in history to effectively treat male pattern baldness in the majority of men who use it.
“That’s the million-dollar question. I’m not sure. As it stands here, you’ve got to have some hair to pluck.” a hair growth expert told Medical News Today. “Could you tap into the pathway with a cream or injection? That could well be possible – or maybe don’t wait until you’re totally bald?”
The sexual side effects of Propecia may continue after you stop taking it. Talk to your doctor if you have concerns about these side effects. Propecia may also cause decrease in blood prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels, and can affect the PSA blood test.
Long before the advent of chemical or surgical hair restoration – people around the world have been using natural remedies to nourish the scalp and keep hair thick and healthy. There are around two dozen common causes for hair loss and hair thinning including (but not limited to) stress, skin infection, medications, age, heredity, and sudden change in diet. Whatever your case may be, the remedies on this list when used regularly can help you to regrow, or thicken, your hair.
With a consistent, patient approach, natural treatments for thinning hair can help your scalp get back to work growing your hair as it should as often as it should or, at the least, help to to thin out at a slower pace. I know hair thinning is not easy to deal with, but I encourage you to give natural treatments for hair thinning a try and not put vanity before health because the conventional options can cause seriously alarming health issues that are a lot more concerning and damaging than a thinning head of hair.
To get Avodart, you will have to convince your doctor to give you a prescription. Personally, I have not tried the drug. But if you have extremely aggressive hair loss and believe it has a very negative impact on your life, talk with your doctor.
The list of Liopgaine’s ingredients is long, indeed, but combined they create a gentle formula that’s free of harsh chemicals, that’s safe for all hair types and color-treated hair, and is designed for both men and women.
Androgenetic alopecia means that as hair falls out, the new hair that grows in will thinner and finer in texture. As this progresses, the follicles are also getting smaller in size. In the end, the follicles stop producing new hair.
One of the most effective home remedies is the use of onions in a situation where one is suffering from heavy hair loss. Onions in your kitchen can be a turning point when it comes to the facilitation of hair growth. The high content of sulphur in onions aids in improving circulation to hair follicles below one’s scalp. This can be achieved through tender grinding of onions to obtain the juice. Once the juice has been extracted, it should be gently applied on the scalp and left for an hour before rinsing with water.
Minoxidil was originally developed to treat high blood pressure. Developers found that it had the side effect of excessive, unwanted hair growth. This effect gave drug companies reason to consider it for male baldness.
