Likewise, if you want to wear a sew-in weave, talk to your hair stylist about sewing the weave into a net instead of sewing it directly into your hair. This solution is still less than ideal, but the net would create less tension and do less damage.
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.
It has been estimated that roughly half of all men in the UK will suffer from Male Pattern Baldness to some extent by their 50th birthday. In those who have the gene for Male Pattern Baldness, a chemical process takes place within the body which triggers the hair loss. The exact time of life when this happens varies from person to person, but some men experience significant hair loss as early as their late teens and early twenties.

Lower stress levels. Stress has been found to disrupt your hair’s natural growth cycle. And the more stress you have, the slower the rate of growth. Effective ways to lower your stress levels include meditation, more sleep, and deep breathing.
I wish to add that a year and half ago, I was on only Minoxidil 10% (not 5% and also not on Finestride – to be safe after reading all the discouraging posts) for almost 9 months. The only thing it was to give a gel-like effect..but was extremely flaky!
Hair growth is tricky territory filled with quicksand traps we should avoid. First, you have the “miracle hair growth” products that promise inches of growth in just a few short weeks. Then, there’s the overwhelming amount of unproven “fast hair growth tips”. All of these do more harm than good and never live up to their potential.
Indeed, finasteride (also known as Propecia) works by lowering the body’s levels of the hormone DHT, which binds to receptors in hair follicles at the top of the scalp, causing them to gradually shrink and lose the ability to grow thick hair.
It’s not snake oil therapy if the FDA backs it, which it does with the iRestore laser system. There’s no ignoring the results, either, as a recent study showed that all participants experienced some hair growth while using iRestore. At the least, it’s a great alternative to other types of hair loss treatments.
Hi, I need help quite desperately. The first photo that I have posted was 6 years ago, when I was 16. The second photo is a few days old. I’m 22 now and in the years between the two photos, I have suffered from stress, anxiety and depression. This is the only thing that I can think of that has caused the hair fall since I exercise regularly and eat healthy food. For some years, during college, My sleeping habits were terrible. I wouldn’t sleep at all or would sleep only in the day for months. I suppose this could also have something to do with it. I really want to grow my hair back!!!! Please help!! Also, I have long curly hair. Because it is curly, I oil regularly, for extra smoothness but also use copious amounts of conditioner. It just isn’t manageable without conditioner. I’m afraid though, that all my hair will fall out soon. PLEASE HELP! The third photo is of my hair type. Long and curly.
But Hair Growth is not just about limiting DHT, it is also about having the prime condition of your scalp that gives a favorable environment for Hair to Regrow, thats why Profollica has what they call a 3-Step Hair Treatment System as follows:
“Testosterone gets metabolized into estrogen but it can also go another pathway into DHT,” said Dr. Mark Carney, a naturopathic doctor, acupuncturist and nutrition expert at Thriveology in Denver, Colo.
With those pinned down, it wasn’t hard to determine which don’t actually work. Pretty much all the “active” ingredients listed in ineffective treatments — from biotin and zinc to emu oil and saw palmetto — have never been proven, and are instead marketed based on logical-seeming correlations. It would make sense that biotin, a B vitamin readily found in hair, skin, and nails, could help hair grow more quickly. And caffeine is a stimulant that works in coffee, so rubbing some on your scalp might wake some of those sleepy follicles… right?
How to eat? Sprinkle some ground flax seed on your salads, or make flax seed chutney, which you can add to your sandwiches, stuffed bread (paratha), etc. You can also add them to your smoothies, or when making bread/naan/rotis. Or simply eat a spoonful as a snack.
Peppermint oil and sage essential oil are also recommended to promote hair growth. You can try mixing three to four drops each of rosemary, peppermint and sage essential oils in one tablespoon of olive oil or coconut oil, then massage the mixture into the thinning area(s) once or twice a day. You can also try this recipe for my Homemade Rosemary, Cedarwood & Sage Hair Thickener.
