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.
“With this knowledge, we hope in the future to create a topical compound or to safely deliver the necessary gene to hair follicles to correct these cosmetic problems,” said Dr. Lu Le, associate professor of dermatology at UT Southwestern.
Chemical treatments, use of heat appliances and vigorous styling can actually affect the hair root and damage your hair, causing hair loss which would not have occurred otherwise. So stay away from them as far as possible.
The chemical indirectly to blame for genetic hair loss is a naturally occurring enzyme called 5 Alpha Reductase. In those who are susceptible to Male Pattern Baldness, this enzyme acts upon the male sex hormone testosterone, converting it into the more powerful derivative, dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It is this DHT which causes the follicles to shrink and become less productive. Generally speaking, the follicles are often not lost, but the hair they produce gradually becomes too small to be seen clearly with the naked eye. The result is Male Pattern Baldness.
The dermatologist also will carefully look at your scalp and hair. During an exam, the dermatologist may pull on your hair. Sometimes a dermatologist needs to pull out a hair to get the necessary evidence. And sometimes a dermatologist needs to look at the hair on the rest of your body to see whether there is too little or too much hair in other areas.
Hi Sarah! I am a 17yr old male. and i have been experiencing hair thinning from random areas on the top. It has made my hair style very irregular. I have thin hair towards the front top of my head the most followed by the middle. On the remaining head i have denser hair comparatively, but the health of my hair has got very poor. They are very dry and lifeless! i have a genetic history of hair fall from my mom’s side as she is 40 and her hair are very thin and poor too! whereas his brother(my uncle) has got completely bald at the age of 32! So can i reverse my hair thinning while there is still time? Can i get the health of my hair to be the most optimum as i would like them to be very silky and long so that i can have any hairstyle of my choice ? My lifestyle is good. I gym and eat healthy! I dont have any bad habits like- Masturbation etc. Also i have started to apply coconut oil and i am currently using Indulekha Oil which also claims to treat hairfall effectively. Thanks!

I took Gingko Biloba for general circulation, but noticed the amount of hair in the shower drian was getting less over time. My thinning hair on top my head got thicker and my receeding hairline started to fill back in. I could feel the little hairs on my foeehead growing back. My barber of 12 years one day asked me if I was using Rogaine because my hair wasn’t as thin. I said no and then knew it was the Gingko which thins the blood and also expandes capilaires just as Rogiane does. I still a have some receceding hairline but not much. Give it 4 to 6 months with a coupea of pills a day.
Natural hair loss is mainly a result of genetics and changes in hormone levels. Additional causes can be health issues, such as thyroid problems, reactions to medical treatments such as chemotherapy, the side effects of medications that include steroids, serious illness, auto-immune disorders, pregnancy, unusually high levels of stress, and malnutrition. There are hair supplements like Reloxe a natural hair regrowth supplement which you can use.
Nail rubbing worked for me.I am using it since May 2014.I noticed result in December.It took 8 months for me to show results.I do it 15 minutes a day.Not always continuously.You said your age is 22 so you have a good chance or stopping hair fall and getting them back.What else no matter what method you use nail rubbing or shirshasan it will take long time to get back hair.No one loose hair in 1 month.It take long time to trigger the cause of hair loss so thing is that no one will get back those hair so easily.Be patience like me and do the rubbing.
Hi Sarah, my hair looked perfectly fine until last month when I started noticing that the hair at the very front of my head have started thinning, I made the mistake of trying a lot of chemical styling products. Last week I saw that everytime I sweat,the entire front portion of my hair, (atleast 10% of it) just falls forward, on noticing closely it looks like there are very few follicles at that circular area. I am freaking My mother’s side of the family has a long history of hair loss, and my father (52) just discovered that his hair have started receeding too, precisely the place where mine have started. I am just 20, is there no way I can reverse it?

I have been on Proscar now (1.25mg/day) for nearly 10 months, rogaine foam 1 to 2 days a time and Nizoral shampoo a few times a week. unfortunately, the shedding never stopped. When I shower, I still see 10-15 hairs on my hand when I shampoo and another 5-10 after I comb my hair after I shower . . . and then another 10-15 when I style my hair with gel in the mornings. I’m going to switch to name brand Propecia and try that out for a few months but I think I may just not responding to this treatment. My hair is absolutely more thin than it was before I started treatment. My thinking is that I go another 3 months on name brand propecia and if that doesn’t work, try Avordart. Thoughts?
