Male pattern baldness begins above the temples and vertex of the scalp. Hairline recedes and men often end up with an “M” shape over their scalp. Women do not have a receding hairline, but they experience a gradual thinning of hair over their entire head.
Congenital Hypotrichosis: This type of hair loss generally affects a person at birth and usually stays with them for the length of their lives. The majority of cases of this kind of hair loss are caused by genetic defects.

Sold under the brand name Diane 35 and Diane 50, this contraceptive tablet is prescribed in Europe for women’s androgenetic alopecia. The drug works by blocking some of the actions of male hormones commonly present in women. Although it’s possible for the drug to stop further hair loss and trigger regrowth of hair within about a year, it needs to be used on an ongoing basis in order to maintain regrowth and eliminate hair loss. Possible side effects include breast tenderness, headaches, and decreased libido. It does have one good side effect- it helps prevent osteoporosis. The drug is a combination of cyproterone and estradiol, an estrogen. Both Diane 35 and Diane 50 contain 2 mg of cyproterone. Diane 35 contains 0.035 mg of estradiol. Diane 50 contains 0.050 mg of estradiol. The drug is as effective as, if not more than, spironolactone. Currently this drug is not available in the US.
Ladies how nice to see everyone pushing each other to get better. Don’t forget to also, drink lots of water, protect your hair from the burning sun, at least your scalp, and no SMOKING. Smoking are chemicals in your body which are not good, it also gives you wrinkles. Also placing a filter in your shower head can also help your scalp, because there are chemicals in our waters and it gets in our hair. Try to use things that do not have chemicals like alcohol, go all natural. Avoid chemicals that are in shampoos as much as possible. Read the labels. Avocado is also good for hair and your heart. Good Luck ladies.
NuNutrients Advanced is a potent serum that works at the root of hair loss. It revitalizes hair follicles, helps reduce hair loss, and reduces inflammation, while regrowing hair by reducing the level of DHT (which can degrade hair follicles and inflame the skin). Voted a #1 trusted brand in 2013 and 2014, this effective treatment uses Biochanin A (extracted from Red Clover) to produce results that can’t be achieved with other products. Biochanin A is a natural inhibitor of DHT, subdues hair loss, and modulates free radical damage to the skin and scalp. This helps the hair stay rooted much longer, while increasing the size of the hair follicle for better volume. It also uses Acetyl Tetrapeptide-3 Biomimetic peptides to stimulate the extracellular matrix proteins for stronger hair anchoring. It also prevents hair from falling out and improves the scalp’s health, while adding more volume and increasing the size of the hair follicle.
January 24, 2018 – One of our finalists, The Capillus82 Laser Cap, is no longer available on Amazon, so we’ve removed it from this review. Rogaine is still our top pick, but keep your eyes peeled for a larger update in the next few months. We’ll take fresh look at some new additions to the hair loss market, including products that use finasteride — an ingredient that (up until recently) has been prescription-only.
This product should not be combined with Scalp Treatment, Hair Booster or Night Density Rescue. The combination of products can be too strong and could cause irritation. Here is the order of usage: Nioxin shampoo, Therapy Conditioner, and Minoxidil Topical Solution twice a day.
Hair health depends a lot on person’s diet. In most of the cases, hair loss is triggered by improper diet. Generally, people under-nourish themselves when it comes to eating. They do not care about proper balance of nutrients in their diet. People with a tendency to lose hair should take a well-balanced and complete diet. According to experts, a diet containing good quantities of seeds, nuts, grains, vegetables and fruits can provide adequate amounts of all the vital nutrients required for good hair growth. Also, foods like milk, vegetable oils, honey, wheat germ, yeast, liver, etc. also prove to be really good for hair growth.
If your are opting for a hair transplant, do plenty of research. Go with a hair transplant surgeon who has experience and a ton of positive reviews. Also check forums online what “real” people say about a particular hair transplant clinic or surgeon–the internet is infested with fake reviews.

I was skeptical, but this product does really work. My thin hair not only looks thicker, but I can feel the difference too. I stopped using it for about 2 weeks, not on purpose, and noticed my hair felt thin and didn’t look as good as when I was using the product! Started up again and viola, it looks great now. Another product that I use in my hair routine is Propidren DHT Blocker with Saw Palmetto to Prevent Hair Loss and Stimulate Hair Follicles to Stop Hair Loss and Regrow Hair which is in pill form so I don’t have to mix anything with water and make a mess. I like this product and will continue to use it .
Although not as powerful as finasteride and minoxidil, it’s an excellent addition to your anti hair loss arsenal. To win this ‘war,’ you need every weapon you can get your hands on. Particularly one that’s relatively safe to use.
Multiple vitamins, including biotin, have been promoted for hair growth, but solid scientific studies for many of these claims are lacking. While taking biotin and other supplements marketed for hair, skin, and nails probably won’t worsen anything, it may also not necessarily help the situation. Therefore, advertised hair-regrowth supplements should be approached with mild caution. There is only anecdotal evidence that oral or topical application garlic, onion juice, saw palmetto, coconut oil, evening primrose oil, apple cider vinegar, creatine, and pumpkin seed oil are of benefit for hair loss.

Please try it, I am not selling anything. I just want you to try something that REALLY works for most people. I remember searching and reading and hoping that someone really found something that could truly help but I never really did. I knew of the healing it could do by providing energy to the cells below the dermis and it not having any bad side effects. The bulbs can get hot after awhile, so I shut off after it feels to warm. Let it cool down and then start again. If you want to keep your hair and grow more faster. Just try this, good luck!!
