This type of alopecia is often attributed to genetic predisposition and family history. Androgenic alopecia is seen in both men and women. The hair loss in men is often faster, earlier onset, and more extensive.
Hair loss is normally triggered by excess dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. Shapiro MD’s active components target the particular enzyme that transforms the male hormonal agent testosterone into DHT, effectively stopping the primary reason for hair loss.
Various essential oils can be added to carrier oils like coconut oil, almond oil, and olive oil to promote hair growth. Some of the best essential oils for this purpose are peppermint oil, tea tree oil, black seed oil, neem oil, pumpkin seed oil, grapeseed oil, avocado oil, eucalyptus oil, walnut oil, lemongrass oil, and onion oil. Essential oils are full of antioxidants and also contain pore cleansing agents – both these properties can improve hair growth.
Stress and hair loss don’t have to be permanent. If you get your stress under control, your hair may grow back. Be sure to talk to your doctor if you notice sudden or patchy hair loss or more than usual hair loss when combing or washing your hair. Sudden hair loss can signal an underlying medical condition that requires treatment. If needed, your doctor may suggest treatment options for the hair loss as well. And if efforts to manage your stress on your own don’t work, talk to your doctor about stress management techniques.

Domen, enjoy your work. Can you expand on your suggestion regarding not having a transplant and wait for new coming treatments? Is there something on the horizon that you’ve touched on before that I missed seeing?? Is DHI the new gold standard for transplants? To your knowledge, Is this method being used in the states yet? Thanks Sir!
Sara, that probably wouldn’t be the best idea. You don’t want to you boyfriend to be a lab rat for these type of experiments, it’s dangerous. There is a possibility the drug could go systemic and cause all kinds of hormonal problems.
Keep in mind that a hair transplant is considered a surgery, so it can be expensive and may be painful. There are also certain risks, including infections and scarring. You may also need to do multiple hair transplant treatments to get the desired outcome.
Nope, it’s not itchy because of that. You may need to get used to it (my case), or you don’t tolerate it well. I suggest you keep going and see if the itch goes away after a while and then reevaluate. You could also try a minoxidil with a lower alcohol formula.
So while there’s no perfect option, there are proven ways to slow your hair loss, and for many men, you can get hair back. Talk to your doctor about your concerns. Or, if reaching for medicine isn’t your style, there’s always time to talk to your barber.
Spironolactone or the more popular brand name Aldactone is in a class of drugs called potassium-sparing diuretics (water pill). It is used to reduce the amount of fluid in your body without causing the loss of potassium. It is also used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and edema (swelling) and used to treat potassium deficiency and hyperaldosteronism (a hormonal disorder).
I took Gingko Biloba for general circulation, but noticed the amount of hair in the shower drian was getting less over time. My thinning hair on top my head got thicker and my receeding hairline started to fill back in. I could feel the little hairs on my foeehead growing back. My barber of 12 years one day asked me if I was using Rogaine because my hair wasn’t as thin. I said no and then knew it was the Gingko which thins the blood and also expandes capilaires just as Rogiane does. I still a have some receceding hairline but not much. Give it 4 to 6 months with a coupea of pills a day.
Laser treatment companies, which claim their devices can reverse shrinking of the follicles, stimulate hair growth and more, are also targeting women with caps and combs. For example, the $895 Theradome, a cap that looks like the top of a bike helmet, has been cleared by the F.D.A. for women. Users wear it for 20 minutes twice a week.
I absolutely love this product! This main thing to remember about a product like this, is that you’re not going to get instant results. Be patient! I’ve noticed a lot of new hair growth but it’s going to take time to actually grow out. Definitely recommend this product to any men with thinning hair or balding. Thanks Bosley.
Hello My name is Ishrath Male 26 years old, I had very greazy dandruff since four years which took my hair off, and now I have thin hair please advise me any good remedy as I have tried all possible doctors and medicines.
I had weight loss surgery in December and have since been losing so much hair I’m talking handfuls idk how I’m not bald but anywho I’ve tried everything so I’m going for a new approach would this product be able to help get my long thick hair back?
A receding, M-shaped hairline is a sure sign of it. Next, the locks on top of your head start to thin, leaving a bald spot. Eventually, the two meet and you’re down to a horseshoe pattern of hair around the sides. The Norwood scale, seen here, is used to rate male-pattern baldness.
“Rogaine is the gold standard in terms of topical treatments,” says Zeichner. “It’s FDA-approved to treat thinning at the vertex, or top of the head, but I recommend my patients use it on the frontal hair line, too, where hair is receding.”
Onion has also been found beneficial in treating patchy baldness. Rubbing the affected part with onion twice a day can promote hair growth. Affected area can be treated with honey after rubbing with onion.
I’m 33 and I still have quite a full hair line. I was facing mild hair loss until recently I’m noticing a lot of shedding, I’ve been on Propecia for the past year though. I’m not sure if Propecia is not effective on me anymore or it was kind of limiting hair fall until now. I’m even doubting that it could be MPB but do you think The Big Three would also help even if it wasn’t an MPB case?
Male pattern baldness (also known as androgenic alopecia) is estimated to affect about 50 million men in the United States. It starts with hair loss above the temples generating the typical “M” shape. Over time, the loss of hair continues around the top of the head and sometimes claims the hair on the sides and rear of the head as well, leading to complete baldness. If you experience male pattern baldness and do not feel comfortable with your appearance, there are certain treatment options available.
We’re sad to hear about your hair. It’s going to take a little while to grow back healthy, but it will most likely bounce back in time. After all, hair usually grows around 6 inches per year. In the meantime, try using a gentle shampoo that doesn’t have sulfates—like PURA D’OR or Art Naturals’ Argan Oil. Use conditioner and let it sit for a couple of minutes on your hair before you rinse it. Leave-in conditioners with Argan oil can help your hair grow back faster and healthier and keep it from tangling. Try to not brush your hair when it’s dry, only when it’s damp, and use a brush or comb that doesn’t tangle or pull out strands. Get a head massage to get the blood flowing. You may want to see a different stylist to trim off any split ends in a couple of months.
Thanks, Ed. I’m afraid if you want to keep your regrown hair you have to use these treatments indefinitely. Otherwise, you’ll lose all your “gains” and be back to the point as if you had never used them. It’s a commitment.
I don’t think that this will or would effect everyone who uses it but I did think that it was important for anyone who buys this to know that this is a potential effect and that if you begin to notice subtle changes in your face that there is a good chance it is due to the regrowth product.
Use aromatherapy to make your scalp grow hair back naturally. A November 1998 “Archives of Dermatology” reports that 44 percent of 43 patients who applied a combination of oils to their scalp for seven months grew new hair on their scalp. Aromatherapy uses essential oils to open up your skin follicles and help your body produce keratin again.
If you are able to determine what causes your hair loss, you’re more likely to treat it successfully. An experienced hair stylist and a medical doctor may be able to help you decide if you don’t know the cause already.
9. Aromatherapy – Using essential oils like lavender, ginger, rosemary, and fenugreek for a scalp massage can also help with hair loss. 2 drops of essential oil can be blended with 15ml (1 tablespoon) of carrier oil, like jojoba.
I’m still not bald enough. I would like my hair to recede a little more off the sides and the back and end up with a smaller fringe of hair. And I would like to lose that last bit of thin ‘peach fuzz’ I still have on top. It is almost invisible and I can hardly feel it, but I know it’s still there.
Spironolactone is an antiandrogen that works in two ways. Primarily it slows down the production of androgens in the adrenal glands and ovaries. Secondly it blocks the action of androgens in part by preventing dihydrotestosterone from binding to its androgenetic receptor.
Most of us, when we think of hair loss, think about aging men. Nearly all men eventually get that receding M-shaped hairline and thinning hair on the top of the head, also known as male pattern baldness. It’s called androgenetic alopecia, and it’s caused by a by-product of testosterone called DHT.
Results can take awhile to become apparent, so it’s important to be patient and follow the regimen exactly. It is best to begin using these products at the first signs of balding or hair thinning for the best results. Drinking more water, eating a balanced diet, taking a daily multivitamin, and taking advantage of additional supplements like Biotin can also help speed up hair regrowth.
