I’ve been using the Somaluxe Shampoo now for 4-5 months now and I love it. I’ve noticed a HUGE difference. My hair grows faster and its thicker….Don’t expect this to grow hair where you lost it. It’s not going to happen. But to stop and prevent hair from falling out, this is great
Hair loss can be devastating for both men and women, even more so when there are loads of products on the market that don’t work. According to the American Hair Loss Association (AHLA), two thirds of American men experience some degree of hair loss by the age of 35. By the age of 50, approximately 85 percent experience significantly thinning hair. Balding is commonly associated with aging, but for 25 percent of men the process begins before the age of 21. What’s more, hair loss is not limited to men: The American Hair Loss Association reports that women make up about 40 percent of hair-loss sufferers in the United States.
This is also gluten-free. Gluten is responsible for making your hair more elastic. However, some people are allergic to this protein. For worse cases, gluten causes severe hair loss and may lead to certain medical conditions such as alopecia areata.
This study claims laser therapy does have some sort of effect, but I’ve never found any people who swear by it, like for minoxidil, finasteride, and keto. I wouldn’t waste my money on it. To be honest with you, I’m on minox, fin and keto for about 3 years now and still experience sheds every once in a while. I wouldn’t worry about it. While my hair is shedding my hairline is staying intact. How often do you use the keto shampoo?
You can use fresh lemon juice or lemon oil since they are said to enhance hair quality and growth. Lemon oil can help you to maintain a healthy scalp and encourage hair growth. Apply fresh lemon juice to your scalp and hair 15 minutes before you shampoo. You can use lemon essential oil diluted in a carrier oil as a hair mask.
For direction and use, all I needed to do was to mix a tablespoonful each of Indian Gooseberry and lemon juice at night in a beaker and rub down my scalp with the concoction thoroughly. Afterward, I covered my hair with a cap and left it overnight ahead of shampooing in the morning. This hair treatment kept my hair glowing and healthy for weeks.
But before you get too excited, there is a catch. First, this study was unfortunately conducted on animals and not all studies like this translate as successfully to humans. (Although the university’s researchers find this study “robust and promising” in aiding androgenic alopecia.) And second, the study also concluded that dimethylpolysiloxane alone won’t stimulate hair growth. In fact, it wasn’t used to stimulate the actual follicle rejuvenation, but to create hundreds of vessels in which the hair follicle germs (bio-engineered follicles) could grow.
What about thinning hair in men? For men, hair thinning can start as early as puberty and progress for many years to come after that. The thinning usually begins above the temples and travels around the perimeter and top of the head. Ultimately, this can result in a ring of hair often referred to as a “horseshoe” remaining along the bottom of the scalp. For a lot of men, hair thinning continues until there is no hair left resulting in a completely bald scalp.
As is the case with Minoxidil, Propecia also needs to be taken regularly. Without it, the testosterone will again get converted into DHT causing hair fall again. Thus, it can be said that Propecia only “buys time” for men having the genetic predisposition to balding. That being said: with regular use, Propecia can slow down and even completely halt the progression of baldness.
“The results are exactly what we hoped for,” King said in a statement released by the university. “This is a huge step forward in the treatment of patients with this condition. While it’s one case, we anticipated the successful treatment of this man based on our current understanding of the disease and the drug. We believe the same results will be duplicated in other patients, and we plan to try.”

To make it more effective, you should use both of its form regularly. Apply the topical cream on your scalp and take the pill every day. By doing so, rest assured that you’ll slow down hair loss process while winning back your lost hair.
I have DHT levels at the bottom -end of the normal range, so low DHT, however I’m still going bald, so besides DHT levels it also depends greatly on the sensitivity of your hair follicles to DHT. If you have high or low levels of DHT finasteride should obviously still help you maintain your hair as the process remains the same either way.
Before delving into details, dandruff comes from a natural reaction of the body against a fungus called P. Ovale. This is usually found in the scalp. This fungus causes the scalp to shed off dead skin, or what is commonly known as dandruff. Too much dandruff causes itching, scaling, and flaking.
Extreme dandruff and infections of the scalp can sometimes lead to bald spots. In such cases, tea tree oil works wonderfully as it is a wide spectrum antimicrobial agent. It is also rich in antioxidants that can help rejuvenate the hair follicles (13).
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 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.
Finasteride: The FDA approved this medicine to men with hair loss. It comes in pill form and helps slow hair loss in most (about 88%) men. It helps stimulate hair re-growth in many (about 66%) men. Finasteride works by stopping the body from making a male hormone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
Nisha, Oh dear! Give these natural options a try. Start with natural shampoo and oiling. And don’t focus on losing weight, focus on getting healthier, making healthy food choices. Exercise and do pranayam on regular basis. That is a more positive approach to improving your health and well being – and you will see your hair will get better too.
For treating baldness, take 2-3 cups of warm water. Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda in it. Stir it well until baking soda gets completely dissolved. Use it like a shampoo. Pour it on the head and gently massage with it.
Hannah, I enjoyed your round-up on hair loss treatments and procedures. However, I think you may have glossed over an important fact in your discussion of modern hair transplant procedures. As with any procedure, some professionals are focused on patient comfort and others less so. The same is true with hair transplantation. In your article you make a blanket statement that hair transplants are painful and expensive, when in fact this is doctor-dependent and technique dependent. Just like producing artistic results and performing minimally-invasive FUE style of hair transplants take years and years and hundreds of cases to completely master, providing a comfortable experience to patients is the same. Hair transplant newbies or part-time surgeons are less likely to understand the nuances of patient selection, hair loss management and artistic hairline design, so too will they be more likely to perform hair transplants (and even PRP) without adequate attention to patient comfort. (I’ve heard reports that some PRP docs do scalp injections without ANY anesthesia… ouch!) In our training programs, we teach our “Ouchless Protocol” for PRP and minimally-invasive FUE Hair Transplants in addition to the other detailed nuances that most newbie surgeons forget. As more and more inexperienced surgeons enter the field of hair transplants and offer PRP to meet patient demand, we are seeing a resurgence of MAJOR errors, unfortunately, and the need for corrective hair transplantation by ABHRS-certified hair transplant surgeons. Bottom line, a hair transplant does NOT need to be painful… in fact, most of our patients fly in for the procedure because they have heard correctly that our procedures are comfortable (even “Ouchless!” as well as being well-executed and delivering high-quality, natural results. For patients, we instruct them to do their due diligence and homework, read reviews, look for certifications, experience, expertise, watch videos and get long-distance consultations before choosing an FUE hair transplant doctor.
