Give your hair a nutritional boost with a supplement containing all essential amino acids.”

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 did was to give a gel-like effect..but was extremely flaky!

Ms. Imhof, who lives in Land O’Lakes, Fla., was skeptical. The company’s before and after photos seemed too good to be true. But she went for a consultation and made the cut. (Harklinikken’s products are not available to anyone with autoimmune illnesses like alopecia or baldness from scarring, or anyone who is unlikely to see at least a 30 percent increase in growth.)
Contrary to popular belief, notes Kingsley, genetic hair loss probably isn’t tied to your mother’s father. “The latest research indicates girls follow mother’s father, boys follow father’s father,” says Kingsley. “But most likely, it is an assortment from both.”

Hair growth has three cycles. The first stage or the growing phase happens in a span of two to eight years. The second stage or the transition phase only happens for two to three weeks, when the follicles shrink. The last stage or the resting phase happens for two to four months. After this, the hair follicles start growing again.

Now, my hair is soft, smooth, and shiny, and probably denser than it use to be in my teens. And I want to share with you all the things that I did to regrow my lost hair and hope these will help you too.
Aloe Vera & Onion juice. Aloe Vera helps remove excess sebum, a substance secreted by hair glands that is linked to slower hair growth. It also helps increase blood circulation. Onion juice is rich in sulfur and stimulates hair follicles to promote faster hair growth.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is another possible causes of hair thinning for women. It’s linked to a hormonal imbalance that can cause hair to grow in the wrong places (like the face) but thin out in desirable locations (like the scalp). Sometimes hair thinning is the only obvious indicator of PCOS. (13)
Men’s Rogaine Unscented Foam and its sister, Women’s Rogaine Foam, are our top picks. They’re both safe, non-prescription, and easily available. They are identical formulas in different bottles — ladies, apparently, need something with a flower on it. (Costco’s Kirkland Signature Regrowth Treatment Minoxidil Foam for Men is the cheapest generic.) The most important part of their ingredients list is minoxidil, a topical drug that has been clinically proven to slow hair loss and even regrow some hair.
Continued usage of this treatment results to the prevention of further hair loss to as much as 90% of the overall patient it was tested on and promotes Hair Re-growth to approximately 50% of patients who are composed of Men and Women.
24 y/o male. Thinking of starting the big 3 as my hair is a distinct v shape now. Best plan of attack. Get on fin 1mg daily, do I need to use the min all over my head or just the temple areas where it has receeded? That part confuses me the most, why would I need to use it all over my head if only my temples and hairline have receeded?
Beetroot leaves are the wonderful remedy against baldness. Boil some beetroot leaves in water. When they become softer, grind them. Add henna during grinding procedure. Apply this paste on the head and leave it for some time. Wash it with lukewarm water.
I use red Light therapy. Red L.E.D. Lights. I started way before that red Led helmet came out. Any red Led (light emitting diode) will work, this is not just a plain red bulb. There is a difference. There are so many now for face treatments and other uses but if it is LED then it will all work the same. I use it for all kinds of things. It will heal my bruises, cuts, burns, muscle aches, etc. it makes everything heal so fast. Even helps my hair grow fast. I will hold it up against my scalp in thinning areas and leave it there for 10 min and then move to another spot. There are no side effects except it makes my hair GROW!! You can tell within a week! Not a month or 3 months. When I would get sinus pain, it would be gone in 5 minutes by just holding the light against my face where my sinus pain would be. Please just google red Led light…….I am not trying to promote a certain website or product. Don’t add therapy or treatment because then you will pull up red led lights marked way up. All red LED lights work the same, whether they are made for your head or to light up a Christmas tree. My first red LED light was a Halloween spotlight that had 5 one watt bulbs in it which cost me $4, that I held up against my scalp and works the same as the one I have now.
Another thing you can say about Lipogaine is that it stands behind its products. It offers a full money-back refund if you aren’t satisfied with your results. It also gives you two other options: as mentioned, Lipogaine for Women (which has a 2% Minoxidil solution), and Minoxidil for Sensitive Scalp.
Thank you Minaz, I’m sure going to check out your suggestion, I’m gonna try it the very next time I go to wash my hair. Also I’m a 100% veg so, is there any other proteins that I should contain in my regular diet? I started eating Dal with rice.
