Hi there! Thank you so much for this post I finally found all I needed to know thanks to you. I am a 17 year old girl and I pretty much have the samw story as you, I lost a large chunk of my hair (specifically on the right side and the middle) after I applied a chemical product to it. After my hair stopped falling I was afraid that it would never grow back but after a few weeks I noticed little baby hair growing in every direction of my lost-haired area. Now my hair is kinda a mess because I have a combination of long hair and extremely short new-growing hair which makes it look bad and hard to style. I need to grow it back as fast as possible, do you have any other tips for me?
Any well-versed French fry connoisseur will know that there are a lot of deep-fried potatoes out there. Some call ‘em chips. Others travel to the far corners of the Earth for the best “pomme frites.” But even the most elite of all fry experts will agree: McDonald’s has some of the best. And a recent study proves the golden arches’ superiority even further — for one totally unexpected reason.
Patchy hair loss. Also known as alopecia areata, patchy hair loss occurs when the body’s immune system attacks hair follicles. The attack causes sudden and rapid hair loss that leaves smooth, often round, bald patches on the skin.
Drug promises robust new hair growth Researchers have found that two drugs already approved by the FDA for other conditions can help strengthen hair growth, offering hope for people with baldness and alopecia. Read now
if u have dandruff apply coconut oil with tea tree oil drops (5-7) every other night for 2 weeks. keep it overnight and then wash off with a SLS and paraben free shampoo. After that you can do this twice a week or once a week to keep ur hair dandruff free.
Try scalp massage. Massaging your scalp will increase blood flow to the hair follicles, which can promote scalp health and strengthen your hair’s roots. However, this method has not been scientifically proven to reduce or prevent hair loss and you should try it with that in mind.
Finasteride was originally created to fight prostate cancer. It works by decreasing the amount of a hormone called DHT in the scalp. DHT appears to cause hair follicles in the scalp to become thinner, so by decreasing the levels of DHT, hair regrowth may increase and hair loss may slow down.
The No. 1 reason why both men and women experience excessive hair thinning and hair loss is hereditary. For men, it’s a more well-known phenomenon called male-pattern baldness, but women can also exhibit female-pattern baldness. Both of these predictable, gradual hair loss patterns are linked with a family history of hair loss. For men, it can start as early as puberty. In addition to thinning hair, men may also notice their hair becoming shorter, softer and finer.
Kravich tells patients dealing with hair loss to include nuts and seeds, eggs, and fish in their diets. All are important sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower inflammation and create a healthier scalp.
One common side effect of minoxidil is a red, itchy scalp, but users claim that merely switching brands can sometimes alleviate that symptom. Another possible side effect is excess hair growth in unwanted places, including the face. It is important to point out that unwanted hair growth and other side effects go away once treatment is discontinued.
I agree everyone should at least try Finasteride to see if they experience side effects, personally I tried it and it gave me side effects even taking 1/4th of a pill, I also tried avodart and wow that REALLY gave me side effects, it gave me retrograde ejaculation, some ppl are just sensitive to androgen suppressors, if you are then your best bet is to stay away from anything that suppresses your androgens, your hair loss may suffer from this though. Currently I’m on lipogaine and Nizoral, I throw in Emu Oil too, I’m going to give the dermaroller a chance. You can still fight hairloss without Finasteride, give it a chance if you experience sides come off of it immediately, weigh the pros and cons, obviously my sex life is more important than hair so I chose to come off of it, but not everyone will experience side effects like I did.
Male pattern baldness pertains to inherited sensitivity to DHT, resulting to thin hair, receding hairline and eventually deserted scalp. This condition significantly affects approximately 67% of men as per the recent research from Finland.

You also have viviscal extra strength and revita hair, which come recommended by many, but since Viviscal extra strength and revita hair are a supplement/ oil combination and not a shampoo, I did not cover it here.
It’s going to be too expensive to afford. As we conducted our research, we found that a lot of companies sell hair growth supplements for $100 or more! Who wants to risk that kind of money on what could just be snake oil salesmanship?
This oil is beneficial to treat baldness that is non-hereditary. It closely resembles the naturally produced oil by the skin and is easily absorbed. It is rich in vitamin E, which takes away the oxidative stress that is resulting in baldness and hair loss (11, 12).
Funnily enough, his dermatologist, Dr. Brett King of Yale University, only prescribed the medication to help with Rhodes’ severe psoriasis, also an off-label use for the Pfizer-owned drug. “I was ecstatic,” King told CNN. “I was truly overjoyed for him.” He later published a study documenting Rhode’s hair recovery in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology.

Regaine and Lipogaine were the same price on Ebay so I got the latter. If it works I might continue for a few months. I hope my hair doesn´t start falling / stop growing after I stop using these products….Thanks one more time ?
Eat plenty of protein. Meat and legumes are some of the greatest sources of protein you can find. Include more chicken, turkey, eggs, peanuts, beans, peas, and lentils in your diet. Greek yogurt also provides a considerable dose of protein.
But do they work? Paradi Mirmirani, MD, a dermatologist for Permanente Medical Group in Vallejo, Calif., spends a lot of time steering patients away from products recommended by their friends and family members. Most of those products are costly and have little to no benefit.
Possibly. But since they (both) don’t provide miracle results, I wouldn’t recommend it. Why risk losing regrown hair? If you get tired of applying minoxidil twice a day, do it just once per day. It still works.
I am 40+ business woman working hardly day and night to improve my business. I have a big bald spot in my top head. My friend told about Nuhairrx serum and i started using for few months. I noticed a not big difference in the first 2 weeks. But after few months, I had lots of new hair growing in. I used this product combined with the vitamins. I am very satisfied.Thx.
We’ve already talked at length about the role of Biotin in treating hair loss. It’s worth repeating, however, that Biotin supports the growth of cells and the production of fatty acids which, in turn, can increase the size of hair follicles). It not only helps slow the rate of hair loss while re-generating hair growth, but your hair will also look fuller and thicker. A biotin deficiency, meanwhile, contributes to hair loss and brittle nails.
Dr. Carlos Wesley, a hair restoration surgeon in Manhattan, said that women in his practice respond better to P.R.P. than men do, which may have something to do with the fact that women with genetic hair loss tend to have more inflammatory cells around the follicles. From 2013 to 2014, he said, he had an 83 percent increase in female patients, in part because of P.R.P.
If you already take Biotin, be careful if you get a gummie that has Biotin in it. You don’t want to take too much. These hair, skin and nail gummies are great for anyone who hates taking pills and wants an easy way to take in some hair growth vitamins.
Progressive hair loss is permanent unless available treatments are utilized. Treatments include Propecia®, Monixidil, low level laser therapy, and the most permanent solution — hair transplant surgery. A complete hair restoration plan can include more than one hair loss treatment, such as a hair transplant coupled with supplemental treatments. The best way to determine what hair loss treatment is best suited for you is to receive a free hair loss assessment, discuss your options, and form a treatment plan with your Bosley physician.
Experts say the biggest drawbacks with minoxidil/Rogaine are that it has to be applied twice daily and that treatment must be continued for the rest of the patient’s life in order to maintain results. All growth resulting from minoxidil use will fall out approximately three months after treatment is stopped.

Besides Minoxidil, Lipogaine contains other ingredients that are effective to the hair loss treatment process, including its herbal DHT-blocker blend of saw palmetto extract, beta-sitosterol, oleic acid, linolenic acid, and apple polyphenol. It also includes Biotin and vitamins B6 and B12, among other ingredients and nutrients.
