While biotin is a type of vitamin that plays a functional role in hair growth, there are other vitamins that can help improve the overall health of your hair. Vitamin E is one such key vitamin that acts as an antioxidant and helps to reduce the oxidative stress on your scalp. This greatly affects hair growth, and this was proven by a study published in the Tropical Life Sciences Research journal (2). Another vitamin that is useful is vitamin C. It removes the dead cells build-up from the scalp and unclogs the hair follicles. This can improve hair growth as well (3). Vitamin C tablets can be added to a carrier oil and used to massage the scalp. Internal supplements of both these vitamins also help.
In the evening you can apply to dry hair. Some people do experience slight oiliness, if that is a concern you can try using only at night. We recommend 2% to women because this is s growth stimulator and with 5% being twice as strong some women experience increased facial hair.
For some reason, my edges have been under seige. I’ve never had problems with them before. They have always been kinda thin but I ‘HAD’ them!!!! I have been using the product for about 5 months now. At month 3, I was completely ready to give up on this product. The package said it may take as long as 4 months to START noticing any kind of growth. At that point, I figured ‘What do I have to lose?’ So I gave it one more month. And sure enough, I started seeing my fuzz!!!!! So, of course I was excited. By the middle of month 4, it was thickening up and growing. I will say that at month 3, I started using Black Jamaican Castor Oil as well on my edges. I’d use 2 sprays of this topical…massage…then massage BJCO immediately after. Now I’m not sure if it was the solution that helped, the BJCO that brought me there, or both. All I know is, even if I have to use this duo for the rest of my life, I will!!! I am VERY happy with my results. I will continue to use both nightly for continued results. PS…for those of you who are discouraged because you’re not seeing any progress, give it time. It took me FOUR MONTHS to BEGIN noticing any sign this product is working.
Originally, the Derma Roller was just a tool for skin care, but a later study confirmed that if used on the scalp in conjunction with minoxidil, it can help regrow hair better than using minoxidil alone.
Some treatments in development hold particular promise for women. Angela Christiano, a hair geneticist and Columbia University professor of dermatology, is hoping to begin clinical trials in a year or two on a procedure in which she dissects hair-follicle stem cells, grows them in the lab until she has several million, then injects them into the scalp, where, a very small study done with a human skin model has shown, they induce new hairs.
Can all these things (aloe vera, different oils, onion, amla, reetha, shikakai, methi, tulsi, honey, apple cider vinegar, garlic and vitamin r capsule) be mixed into one thick paste and applied daily?

Avoid heating tools like blow dryers and straighteners. Don’t shampoo your hair every day; 2-3 times per week is enough. At the end of a shower, rinse your hair with cool water. Don’t wrap wet hair in a towel.
Another purported herbal remedy for hair loss is green tea. A study in mice of the polyphenolic compounds present in green tea show promise as a natural remedy for hair loss, but human studies have not been done to confirm these effects.

In clinical studies of mostly white women aged 18 – 49 years with mild to moderate degrees of hair loss, the following response to 2% minoxidil topical solution was reported: 19% of women reported moderate hair regrowth after using 2% minoxidil topical solution for 8 months (19% had moderate regrowth; 40% had minimal regrowth). This compares with 7% of women reporting moderate hair regrowth after using placebo, the liquid without minoxidil in it for 8 months (7% had moderate regrowth, 33% had minimal regrowth).
Thanks for the great article. I am 24, started around age 19 after serious thinning and a lot of frontal hair loss. I\’ve tried everything (aloe vera, different oils, onion, amla, reetha, shikakai, methi, tulsi, honey, apple cider vinegar, garlic and vitamin r capsule) but nothing is working. So I\’ve decided to try Finasteride. Finasteride (Propecia) has made my hair loss stop completely so far. No side effects that I notice, I take half a pill every day (.5mg). My insurance didn\’t cover Finasteride. So I got it online (thanks google). My uncle gave me this keyword * STOP99BALD * and he said just Google it. Hope this helps
Patience is a must. You should be consistent with what you are using for your hair. Hair is like a plant and it needs to be nourished. If you keep changing the product you are using you hair or scalp doesn’t know what to like. Virgin Coconut oil, grapeseed oil, and aloevera gel are effective. I take coconut oil pill, beautifully bamboo pill, grapeseed capsule and omega 3,6,9 pill because you need not to take something externally but also internally for your healthy scalp and hair growth. Before I shower I apply aloe vera (buy the pure aloe in amazon or you can use the aloe vera plant if you have one) to my hair and scalp and massage it for 3-5 minutes and leave it on at least 1 hour (the longer the better) (also note that massage gently with your fingertips NOT fingernails). I use shampoo and conditioner that is harsh free such as Purador Dandruff shampoo and Conditioner. After using the shampoo I either use the aloe vera again as conditioner or the purador conditioner and leave it on for at least 3 minutes then I rinse. If I don’t use the aloe vera before taking a shower I use essential oil (mix virgin coconut oil and grapeseed oil with drops of bamboo extract, asian ginseng extract, and neem). Apply this and massage to your hair and scalp the same way I mentioned with the aloe vera. Shampoo and use either the purador conditioner or aloe vera as conditioner. I do this treatment 3 times a week and alternately (aloe vera or the mixture of oil). Also try drinking the beautifully bamboo tea for 3 months then once in a while after that for great results. My once damage scalp which is very dry, sometimes red and itchy and my hair that is thinning and lossing was once again back to normal after 5 months. Before I did this routine I used a lot of products and frequently changes products and not getting the desired results until I got desperate and said I will stick to just one routing and same products and don’t care about the result but it turns out that the product and treatment I mentioned is working. So I will NEVER changed the product I am using. I am happy now with my scalp and hair.
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 ?
Trichotillomania is a stress-induced condition in which you have an irresistible urge to pull out hair and is often triggered by stress but can also result from tension, loneliness, boredom or frustration.
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.
Similarly out of fashion are flap-type procedures, where a flap of hair from a hair-bearing area is partially removed, swung around, and attached to a frontal area. But this can lead to scarring or death or a portion of the scalp.
Hey, Jox. I don’t believe so. In terms of blocking DHT, Nizoral is not as strong as Finasteride. And minoxidil just helps regrow hair, it does not do anything about the DHT. I suggest you take finasteride or some other potent hair loss treatment like RU, after transplantation.

P.R.P. is one of a number of new hair-loss treatments being marketed to women, who suffer hair loss in fewer numbers but often more acutely than men because, for them, hair loss is less socially acceptable, and historically they have had fewer and less potent medical solutions.

I have been experiencing hair loss due to Hormone therapy. I am using the #2 Nioxin. I purchased the box with all 3 products. I also purchased the Diamax, Hair Booster, Night density rescue, & Minoxidil topical solution. What is the order or the best way to use these products? I used to have beautiful long hair on top and now it is short and thin on top.
Apply one mL 2 times a day directly onto the scalp in the hair loss area. See carton and enclosed leaflet for complete directions. Using more or more often will not improve results. Continued use is necessary or hair loss will begin again. When using this product do not apply on other parts of the body. Avoid contact with the eyes. In case of accidental contact, rinse eyes with large amounts of cool tap water. Some people have experienced changes in hair color and/or texture.
No matter for how long you are suffering from baldness problem. Hair Transplant can be helpful to you all to be young and get back your lost hair. Hair Transplantation is of two types FUE (no scar at nape after the operation) or FUT (there is a risk about scar like a thin line at nape).
COLOR STRATEGICALLY: Bleaching or significantly lightening your hair color all over can cause damage or breakage, but well-placed highlights hide thinning by making your hair color more similar to the color of your scalp. Plus, the dye expands the hair shaft slightly so it appears thicker, according to David.
