My scalp is dry, itchy, and irritated everywhere. I’ve been using H&S Clinical Strength shampoo for 2-3 years and its been pretty good at keeping it under control. I’ve been using rogaine for about 1 year now and I’m trying to avoid propecia if possible. Recently my hairline has quickly recede, and I’m not sure what to do. My friend said to start using nizoral every couple days. Do you recommend Nizoral for every few days? If so, what conditioner do you recommend and what shampoo do you recommend for the other days of the week when not using Nizoral? Thanks for your help – great site.
I have been on Proscar now (1.25mg/day) for nearly 10 months, rogaine foam 1 to 2 days a time and Nizoral shampoo a few times a week. unfortunately, the shedding never stopped. When I shower, I still see 10-15 hairs on my hand when I shampoo and another 5-10 after I comb my hair after I shower . . . and then another 10-15 when I style my hair with gel in the mornings. I’m going to switch to name brand Propecia and try that out for a few months but I think I may just not responding to this treatment. My hair is absolutely more thin than it was before I started treatment. My thinking is that I go another 3 months on name brand propecia and if that doesn’t work, try Avordart. Thoughts?
Minoxidil (loniten) was the first drug approved by the FDA for the treatment of male pattern baldness. For many years, minoxidill, in pill form, was widely used to treat high blood pressure. Just like finasteride researchers discovered a very interesting side effect of the drug. People taking the medication were growing hair in unexpected places like on their cheeks and the back of their hands, some even grew hair on their foreheads.
Hair loss from chemotherapy can have a big effect; the best way to treat and regrow your hair is using natural hair regrowth products. Hair loss can create a negative aura that affects the way you think about yourself. If you happen to suffer from hair loss, natural hair regrowth products have the power to heal the scalp from damaging chemicals. If not treated with the proper hair growth product, more damage could be caused by harsh chemicals.

Hi Tina, we recommend starting with 2% as that strength works well for most women. While you can use the 5% keep in mind it is a growth stimulator and the stronger dose can cause unwanted facial hair for women as a side effect and that is why it is recommended primarily for men

For me, I have chosen not to use this any longer even though I was starting to see regrowth. Since I stopped using this my face has slowly started to shed the puffiness features and the large dark bags/circles have started to diminish but it is slow to regain my “old face.”
Take one kg of amla and one kg of olive oil now make few cuts in all the amlas so that they can absorb the oil now take a iron jar close the lid of this jar properly put both the things in it then keep it in sunlight for 6 months afer that time when u will open the lid u will see that the oil has became black in colour now just strain this with a strainer apply it you will see good results
Caffeinated drinks (such as coffee, tea, and sodas) are dehydrating and thus, drinking these can actually cause water imbalance. Try to stick to water and unsweetened teas and juices and limit your caffeine consumption to one to two drinks a day.
I have tried this remedy and it works, first of all in order to immediately stop hair fall you have to shave your head, I shaved my head seven times backwards (against the growth angle of hair) after every two days, and every night apply coconut oil mixed with small amount of antimony (Surma), gently massage for 20 – 30 minutes, leave for the night and wash in morning with bath soap (Like lifebuoy) do not use perfumed soaps or shampoo, try to give your scalp as much air and sunlight possible, keep applying coconut oil and antimony till you get satisfactory results, I am still applying this method and believe me I have 70% improvement!
Hi, great article. I have an aggressive form of MPB. I am 23 year old with a NW2 hairline, diffuse thinning over the top and crown. Been on 5% Minoxidil and 2% Keto for about 9 months. Went through a period of shedding which has reduced somewhat in the last couple of months. I don’t see any appreciable increase in density anywhere but I do see plenty of thin vellus hair at my hairline. I am waiting for the 1 year mark to see the full effect of this regime. Is there like a test you can do to assess hairfall? Or do we just have to count the hair lost in the shower? Do you reckon I should start the Fin to hold on the the hair I have? Like most guys (actually a bit more than most guys seeing that I am young) I worry a lot about being in the 2% who experience disastrous sides from Fin. I do plan to check my DHT levels before I start, if I do at all, to see if I naturally have high/low DHT. That should tell me what to expect, to an extent.
Some other causes of hair loss in women can be syphilis, autoimmune disorders, chemotherapy, hair shaft abnormalities, etc. A proper diagnosis by a doctor will help you identify the reason behind your hair loss.

Natural treatments based on cutting-edge science are a new arrival in the battle against alopecia. While we have always known that some plant extracts have an effect on hair loss, these “home remedies” were hit and miss, due to the fact that they were not quantifiable. The leaders in natural, science-based treatments harness the power of the natural world and use plants to counteract the body processes that are causing hair loss.
Hair loss will affect more than 40% of all men and women at some point in their lives. Although the causes may be different, hair loss in both sexes has similar effects; embarrassment, loss of confidence, and for some even emotional devastation. And in case you think people are too sensitive about the issue, societal studies have shown that people with a full head of hair are regarded better and with more respect than those without.
I always assumed taking finasteride was a given with any transplant procedure, after all what’s the point in having an area of your scalp transplanted with new hairs then all the surrounding areas of hair continue to disappear in the balding process. That would not be a good look at all.
Angela Ledford, 34, a beauty blogger, had used the Rogaine men’s formulation, after hair extensions, M.A.C. Black Carbon eye shadow, Joan Rivers hair fill-in powder and supplements all failed to hide her thinning jet-black hair. (The men’s product was not F.D.A.-approved for women, but that didn’t stop women from buying it.)
There are many options and alternative cosmetic treatments for hair loss. Some of these are listed here and include hair-fiber powders, hairpieces, synthetic wigs, human hair wigs, hair extensions, hair weaves, laser, and surgery.
With the easy-to-use pump, add product to your hands and run it through your hair and scalp. You will experience a tingling sensation after applying it to the scalp. This can be used daily by both women and men, and has overwhelmingly positive reviews online.
This is a small or localized hair loss area caused by repetitive or persistent pulling or traction on hair roots. Tight braids and ponytails can pull hard enough on hairs to make them fall out. If this happens, it’s best to choose hairstyles that put less tension on hair. The sooner this is done the better to avoid permanent damage.
There is a medicine called Minoxidil that is extensively used for hair loss treatment. It comes in the form of a liquid or foam, which you have to rub on your scalp around two times a day. It helps in the regrowth of hair and also prevents further hair loss. Results can be seen after regular application of the cream for months and not before. A thing to note here is that baldness will resume once you stop using minoxidil. Therefore, it is a life-long commitment to use this medicine for any significant improvements.
Prescription finasteride (sold under the name Propecia) and at-home laser treatments, such as the FDA-approved HairMax Ultima 12 LaserComb, have also been shown to be effective. The key to halting your hairline is ultimately finding a hair loss regimen that works for you. A doctor is your best bet for that kind of guidance — but we can definitely tell you which treatments your scalp (and your wallet) should steer clear of.
Olive oil helps in preventing as well as curing hair loss. It stimulates the growth of new hair. Regular use of olive oil prevents the formation of DTH hormone and facilitates hair growth. It also acts as a natural conditioner by making your hair soft and silky. The antioxidants present in this oil also stimulate hair growth (15).

Ginseng is a Chinese herb for hair growth. Various experiments have proved the efficacy of this herb in improving hair growth by promoting the growth of the hair keratinocytes and suppression of enzymes/hormones that impair hair growth (50).
When I purchased this product the lady said that if it didn’t work for me I could bring it back after the month trial. I came in today and the person said they could not exchange it or return it because I had used more than temper cent of the product. If I would’ve been informed that when I purchased the Bosley I wouldn’t have purchased it because they said I could try it for the four weeks . I was never informed of this policy in in contrary they offered different. Ulta is costly and I don’t mind if what they sell actually works!
Surgery can be an effective option for men with male pattern baldness, says Kobren. The procedure’s success is predicated on moving DHT resistant hair to areas on the scalp that previously grew DHT-sensitive hair. Because DHT sensitivity is rarely the problem for women, they almost never gain long-term benefit from the procedure.
If that sounds a little too much like a late-night infomercial, consider that Dr. Shani Francis, a dermatologist in Skokie, Ill., often recommends laser treatments in conjunction with minoxidil in her practice, which is 90 percent female.
The most effective hair loss treatments won’t conquer your genes, but they will slow down the process and may even help regrow some hair when used on a consistent basis. Experts doubt whether there will ever be a total cure for baldness (Dr. Wolfeld cites hair cloning as the next frontier to help “thicken and maintain hair”) and even if one is discovered, it probably won’t work on everyone. This touches on two pieces of advice that nearly all of our experts share with patients suffering from hair loss: Keep expectations realistic, and understand that what works for someone else may not work for you.
Hi James, the Regrowth Treatment is meant to be applied to the scalp to absorb in so you can start using at anytime even on a shaved head. Just be sure to quickly rub it in after application as the treatment is a liquid and may run with no hair to contain it. Be sure to use 2 x a day for 2-3 months to begin to see results
This is a drug that is sold in pharmacies, and you won’t need a prescription to get it to get it. Here is the catch. These pharmacy brands are at least twice weaker then the real version of it. The pharmacy version works with a small percentage of the users.
Practice relaxation techniques if you’re feeling stressed, because stress can shock the hair follicles and cause them to stop producing. When you feel anxious, close your eyes and inhale slowly through your nose. Hold your breath for a second, then let the air out through your mouth. Imagine yourself in a peaceful place, such as a forest or the beach, or play soft music as you relax.
