I have struggled with my hair for a long time now. I am quickly approaching my 40s and I have bad hair quality. Recently, I have also noticed that my hair has stopped growing as it used to. A few years ago I went to the salon on a monthly basis. Now, it takes me almost two months before I even need to cut my hair! I am desperate and I really need help right now. Hair is one of the most important parts of a woman and I don’t want to give up on this one. I went to the doctors but they didn’t found anything wrong with me. The exams I took showed that I am healthy and there’s no reason for this to even happen to me. Please, I really need hair advice urgently!!!!!!!!!!!!
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?
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.
Men’s Rogaine Extra Strength Solution is the liquid version of our top pick. It didn’t make our final cut because it includes propylene glycol, which causes irritation in roughly one-third of its users. With that said, Dr. Wolfeld finds that it can be even more effective in practical daily use. In his experience, “the solution can penetrate and get into your scalp a little bit better” than the foam — especially if you’re not taking the time and effort to apply the foam correctly. This seems crazy to us since the foam so quickly dissolved into a liquid in our tests, but if you’re worried, try a one-month supply of the liquid and make the switch to foam if you notice any irritation.
PRESCRIPTION REMEDIES: If you don’t respond to minoxidil, your doctor might prescribe antiandrogen medications, which may slow hair loss and even stimulate growth in some women. “They inhibit male hormones that can exacerbate hair loss,” explains Dr. Mirmirani. In select cases, she may prescribe finasteride, a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor, which blocks an enzyme that regulates the production of androgens. Because the medication causes birth defects, it is FDA approved only for men. “In premenopausal women who are no longer childbearing, finasteride can be used off label,” Dr. Mirmirani notes.
Using too much hairspray or gel can cause hair loss. No, but it may make people think you’re a time-traveler from the ‘80s. This was just one of several myths debunked in an entertaining 2011 report by US News.
If a good and quality regular shampoo cost around $13 USD and above, shampoos that specialize in defeating hair loss cost around $15-$16 USD and above depending on the size and brand. You can’t really tell the difference between the cost of the regular one and the Hair Loss shampoo but what you can really tell is their difference between each other.
Jojoba oil is a powerful home remedy that has been in use for more than a hundred years. It has a powerful effect on hair growth when rubbed into the scalp and the hair, particularly at the spot where you’ve noticed the loss.
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 am thinking of using minoxidil to spot treat part of my receding hairline. The patchiness is not really that bad and it’s been concentrated on one side for a few years without getting worse, but I can’t really change the style of my hair much, and that’s the biggest issue for me since I get bored very easily.
After shampooing my hair, I apply a styling gel and then blow dry. How do you suggest I incorporate the product in my daily regimen. Also, I’ve read a few comments complaining that the regrowth product can be greasy. The evening application would not be a problem. And, finally, why is the men’s regrowth treatment 3% and the women’s 2%? The most notable competitor to Bosley uses 3%. Just an observation.
“Don’t get me wrong — I really want it to work,” said Dr. Senna, who also teaches at Harvard Medical School. “There aren’t a lot of options, and I’d love to be able to say to my patients, ‘This is something you can try that is worth the money.’ But I can’t do that yet.”
Caffeinated drinks (such as coffee, tea, and sodas) are dehydrating and thus, drinking these can actually cause water imbalance. Try to stick to water and unsweetened teas and juices and limit your caffeine consumption to one to two drinks a day.
While you use the Ultrax Labs shampoo, it can help fight dandruff, too. No matter why you wash with it, massage it in and leave it on your hair from 2 to 5 minutes before rinsing for best results. The manufacturer also recommends using it at least 5 times per week.
While prescription medications for hair loss can be effective, they can also be very expensive and carry a host of unwanted side effects. In response to this, many people have turned to non-prescription solutions and achieved similar, or even better, results.

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.
Almost all hair loss in guys results from male-pattern baldness, a genetic trait that comes from your parents. Other causes include certain medications, too much vitamin A, or not enough protein. Illness or stress can lead to sudden, heavy shedding called telogen effluvium. Good news, though: Hair loss that isn’t from male-pattern baldness often reverses itself.

Cimetidine has been used to treat hirsuitism in women (excess facial hair growth) and has been studied in women with androgenic alopecia showing promising results.

While minoxidil has been clinically proven to slow the progression of hair loss and regrow some hair, most informed experts see it as a relatively marginally effective drug in the fight against hair loss. Since minoxidil has no effect on the hormonal process of hair loss its positive effects are at best temporary and usually yield somewhat disappointing long-term results.
