Androgenetic alopecia-This is the most common type of hair loss which is attributed to DHT. DHT stands for dihydrotestosterone. Basically, testosterone is the male hormone which is responsible for deep voice, strong muscles and genital structures that characterize men. Testosterone hormone acts on these tissues directly but on the scalp it causes a negative impact, especially on the hair follicles. Here, it gets converted into DHT that leads to hair loss. DHT builds up from stress and several other factors like improper diet, age, hormones etc. In women too, androgenetic hair loss can be blamed on DHT. Women undergo many hormonal changes during their lifetime specifically at puberty, childbirth and again during menopause. These changes wreak havoc on the skin and hair.
Adipose or fat derived stem cells are usually discarded after cosmetic surgery procedures like tummy tuck or liposuction. However, quite recently, doctors have started using the Adipose stem cells from the fat and injecting them in skin and hair for rejuvenation. Tests conducted on these have shown enhanced hair growth in patients. Adipose stem cells are also available commercially and they do not require any specialized equipment or cell processing centers. A trained expert can apply these proteins into the balding areas of the scalp. The stem cell hair rejuvenation procedure also has very little downtime. This makes this hair loss cure one of the most effective cures for hair regeneration in patients who are unwilling or unsuitable for traditional surgical hair transplants.
Minoxidil, by far the most popular hair loss treatment in the US, encourages hair growth through a far different mechanism. Proponents of the topical ointment claim it widens blood vessels and other pathways to allow more oxygen and proteins to reach the follicles and stimulate hair growth. But it is effective for only about 40% of people.
Extracted from the seeds of Arugula, taramira oil is popularly known as jamba oil in Hindi. It contains plenty of fatty acids and has anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties. Hair loss and baldness are often treated with this oil (9).
Iron: Not getting enough iron can lead to hair loss. Good vegetarian of iron are iron-fortified cereals, soybeans, pumpkin seeds, white beans, lentils, and spinach. Clams, oysters, and organ meats top the list of good animal sources of iron.
There are thousands of commercial products available, but use olive/amla oil for 60-90 days before trying any medicine. Eat a balanced diet, get good sleep, exercise regularly. If it doesn’t help, then consult your doctor.
Can wearing a baseball cap make you go bald? Nope. Running fingers through your hair won’t cause it, either. Neither will combing, brushing, twisting, or styling. Just be gentle so you don’t break the strands.
The doctor should be able to tell you if it is possible to regrow your hairline at all. If it is, he or she might be willing to prescribe regrowth medication or otherwise recommend a special regrowth procedure.
Thanks. My shedding still hasn’t stopped. Now on month 14 of propecia, + keto + minox. I talked to my Dr about trying DUT . . . he said no given it isn’t FDA approved. But I’m thinking of increasing my dose of propocia from 1.25mg (1/4 of a proscar pill) to 2.5mg (so take half a pill. Anything wrong with doing that???
Initially, hair loss was seen as a sign of ageing, but in the urban scenario with everyone leading a hectic lifestyle, it has become a reason for worry for many. There are various causes for hair loss, ranging from medication, hormonal imbalance, the kind of diet you consume work stress. As a habit, we all look for an instant chemical remedy for hair loss for quick results despite being aware of its many harmful consequences. Going natural is the best solution for hair problems, since it doesn’t have any side effects and its results are long lasting.
Pharmaceutical companies witnessing the great demand for the Hair Regrowth, desperately try to come up with hair solutions. By one or the other reason, these end up beingsophisticated and costly. Most of us are convinced that these superficial and only within reach of movie stars and rich business men- overpriced and limited to some popular Medical Centers.

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.
The reason is that finasteride works to reverse miniaturization (the thinning and shortening of hairs due to DHT). Younger patients, with early hair loss, generally have more hair in the early stages of miniaturization where the changes are readily reversible.
