There’s no cure for baldness, but there are ways to hold on to what you’ve got. The hair loss specialists we spoke with and the clinical studies we agree: 5 percent minoxidil foam is the best hair loss treatment to start with. It’s safe for both men and women, it really works, and you don’t need a prescription to use it.
3. Third Party Testing: Different than third party monitoring, third party testing verifies the quality of each company’s products. Third party testing is really expensive for manufacturers, since it can actually disqualify entire shipments of pills. But when companies don’t have independent quality control, there is no guarantee that their products are what they claim to be.

As we grow older, nature’s law says it’s inevitable for some of us men to lose hair. But in a society and culture that emphasizes so much on appearance, it really hurts to lose our hair over time. I understand how you feel if you are currently facing hair loss now.
Please help. My hair has always been my pride and joy. I figured since it is pretty damn healthy, it could deal with some bleach damage. And I figured the master stylist who did all the color-corrections would know how much would be too much. I was wrong, and now I want to burst into tears every time I look at my hair or touch it. I just don’t know what to do. my hair has also NEVER been shorter than this and it breaks and falls out. What should i do to regrow hair?

Stinging nettle stimulates growth of new hair while at the same time inhibiting the production of DHT – the hormone primarily responsible for male- and female-pattern baldness. Nettle is also frequently used to remedy hair-loss in people with alopecia areata. Check out this recipe for making your own hair tonic using dried nettle leaves.
Laser hair rejuvenation treatment for hair loss consists of using a low-level laser light from either a laser-comb, a hand held device or even a laser helmet to stimulate hair follicles. Several double blind controlled trials have been conducted on laser devices to study their efficacy in treating male and female pattern hair loss. The results have been quite promising in that; considerable improvement was seen in the number of new hair as well as the density of existing hair. Increase in terminal hair count was even seen to be comparable to the results seen with 5% Minoxidil solution. Further research is necessary to define optimal treatment the duration of the results and the use of laser devices in other forms of alopecia. The positive aspect of this therapy is that it is quite affordable and the patient can even buy handheld laser devices and use them safely in the comfort of his/her home without any adverse effects.
Hi Minaz, I started following your blog from past 2 days.. Firstly you are doing an amazing job through this blog. Coming to me .. I am 34 yrs old female working(computer job) mom of 3yr old boy staying in India. I always prefer natural products/remedies for anything and everything. Last year July,2015, for the first time I smoothened my hair thinking that straight hair will look good on me as my natural hair is wavy. But now I realized that my natural hair is my best hair and started loving my wavy hair. No regrets for smoothening my hair as it helped me to realize the value of my hair. From the month of May,2016 , I started 1 hr of head massage on a weekly basis by going to parlour. I am using coconut oil with 5-10 drops of lavender essential oil for massage. But I am seeing lots of hair loss after I started with this weekly massage. When I started searching about head massage causing hair loss, that’s when I found your site. I am happy I could read your articles. I just want to get rid of my smoothened hair at the earliest and get back long wavy hair. Would love to hear your thoughts.
Results can take awhile to become apparent, so it’s important to be patient and follow the regimen exactly. It is best to begin using these products at the first signs of balding or hair thinning for the best results. Drinking more water, eating a balanced diet, taking a daily multivitamin, and taking advantage of additional supplements like Biotin can also help speed up hair regrowth.
Yarrow is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and astringent herb making it an ideal remedy for treating scalp conditions which can cause hair loss. Add a few drops of yarrow oil to a carrier oil such as jojoba or olive to help stimulate new hair growth.
Hiding that hairline with a cap can be so wrong because it worsens the situation, it could be one of the reasons for hair fall. There various causes of hair fall, mineral deficiency, genetics like the baldness in men, stress, diet and many others. It could be a nightmare for any man developing baldness. Researchers show that it is caused by genetics, others say tallness determines when to go bald. I know its scary, but don’t worry hair fall is common.
Thank you for such a great article. I have just started notice of my hair fall and want to do something about it. I have seen the Reviews for REGAINE so far, that seem effective. Can you please tell me, are ROGAINE and REGAINE same products ? If not, which one will you recommend ? Also, is there any need to use anything beside with one of the above products ? Thanks for your time,
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 out. 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?
Try Minoxidil (Rogaine). Minoxidil is an FDA approved topical treatment to treat male pattern baldness. It is a solution that stimulates the hair follicles to grow and is applied directly onto your scalp.
