I want to caution people against using Mintop (or minoxidil), an anti-hypertensive medication. If you read in various forum about the horrible side-effects you will want to keep away from it. Some of the side-effects of minoxidil include: redness and irritation at the treated area, unwanted hair growth, contact dermatitis, irritation of eyes, early wrinkles – it can actually age your face (read the reviews on forums), dark circles under the eyes, bloated eyelids, and many more.
Liquorice and milk together become a natural remedy for treating baldness. All you have to do is to pour four tablespoons of milk in a bowl. Add two tablespoons of liquorice powder in it. Stir it well adding a pinch of saffron in it. Apply this natural blend on the affected area covering bald patches. Leave it overnight and see the results.
Rosemary oil is by far one of the most popular and effective treatments for hair-loss as well as a handful of other scalp ailments. For best results, try massaging one to two teaspoons of rosemary oil directly onto areas of the scalp where hair-regrowth is desired. While this treatment may take several months, use of rosemary oil is one of only a few natural methods proven effective for reversing hair-loss in individuals with alopecia areata.

The most common treatment for male-pattern hair loss is a topical solution called Minoxidil, which was approved by the FDA in 1988. Minoxidil has been proven in some cases to slow down or help stop hair loss on the vertex of the head.
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.
Side effects: Finasteride can cause erectile dysfunction and other sexual side effects, though this is unusual. If it happens to you, it will likely clear up once you stop taking finasteride. But for some men, that can take 3 months or more.
Just like hair loss dandruffs infections can be embarrassing. Although not the case, many people associate dandruffs to poor hygiene. Even if you wash your hair every day you can still have dandruffs because of various factors like dry skin.

I have a crazy idea and was wondering what your opinion is. I am a female who takes Ginet a contraceptive pill with cyproterone acetate in it. My boyfriend is balding what if I crushed these pills and made into a cream for him to apply to his head?
Finasteride inhibits type II 5-alpha-reductase, which is the enzyme responsible for converting testosterone into the more potent androgen DHT. DHT levels are reported to be reduced by 60 percent when the drug is taken, which prevents the susceptible follicles from being affected by the hormone and returning their normal size.
There are several risk factors of hair loss. Family history or heredity is a cause as well as a risk factor of a thinning hair line. Other possible risk factors include age, stress, inadequate nutrition and certain chronic medical conditions, like diabetes and lupus. (16)
