Dr. Ryan Welter, a Boston-based hair transplant surgeon, warns that hot water dehydrates hair strands, leading to dry, brittle hair that’s more prone to snap and fall out. (9) So avoid hot showers that can dehydrate hair, making it weaker and more prone to thinning. A lower temperature on hair (and skin) will help preserve moisture.
Diagnosis can include blood work to test for nutrient deficiencies, scalp examination (looking at patterns and shapes of hair loss, possibly a skin biopsy) and gathering medical, lifestyle and family information.
Laser therapy such as iRestore certainly has its advantages: you don’t have to deal with foams or liquids, it has no potential side effects, and is ideal for men and women who may have allergies or sensitivity to certain drugs and ingredients.

For one, ketoconazole fights fungus on the scalp; fungus which inhibits hair growth and may cause hair loss. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that are good for scalp health. If seborrheic dermatitis is one of the causes of your hair loss, then products with ketoconazole – such as Nizoral’s A-D Anti-Dandruff Shampoo – are worth serious consideration.
Consult your doctor before using this product. For best results, use this anti-dandruff shampoo twice a week for two months, with intervals of your current shampoo,. Apply a small amount on wet hair. Massage slowly until a thick lather forms and rinse carefully.
Your article is great and gave me a hope that you would help me with my problem. I am 22 male and from past 2-3 months I am observing a little bald patch on my left head side corner just above the portion that makes V shape. The patch is not big but sometimes makes me look ugly and others also started noticing it. My hair is light and bit rough. Please tell me how to fill that small patch with hair again plus what should I do to make my hair thick and strong. Please help me with this.
This all natural, herbal formula battles hair loss by including specific nutrients that are not easily obtained from dietary sources alone. It is reasonably priced and conveniently taken in tablet form.
It’s also worth mentioning that applying castor oil or even a product such as Maple Holistics argan oil shampoo to the hair by themselves can be a bit messy to use and it can leave hair feeling greasy and oily.
Why you should avoid dyes: Synthetic hair dyes contain harsh chemicals such as ammonia, hydrogen peroxide, p-phenylenediamine, which can cause hair damage, brittleness and scalp irritation. Repeated exposure can also harm the hair follicles, potentially resulting in thinning and hair loss. Plant based dyes such as henna can produce gorgeous hair colors ranging from red to dark brown.
Thank you, Turner. Finasteride should be enough. I wouldn’t take more than one oral DHT blocking treatment, but I wouldn’t shy away from using additional topical DHT blockers – like Lipogaine for Men (minoxidil plus DHT blocking ingredients).
Nizoral A-D prevents the flaking, itching, and scaling associated with dandruff. As it turns out, ketoconazole is an effective dandruff fighter as well as taming fungus and inflammation on your scalp.
What causes hair loss and hair thinning? Are there vitamins for hair growth? Before you get alarmed, I hope you read this article, which will not only give you hope, but also provide actual proven natural treatments for thinning hair. For starters, nutritional deficiencies are often a cause of thinning hair. Dr. Wilma Bergfeld, a prominent Cleveland Clinic dermatologist who specializes in hair loss, has found that low iron levels contribute to hair loss. (2) This is just one of the causes of hair thinning that can be addressed using natural treatments for thinning hair like diet, natural supplements, essential oils and more.
Side effects associated with finasteride include chills; cold sweats; confusion; dizziness; hives; swelling in the legs, and face; tingling; erectile dysfunction; decreased libido; and ejaculatory dysfunction; and weight gain.
I would not take propeciahelp seriously. The website is far far too bias. The testimonies against finasteride are unverifiable anecdotes, not to mention the drug itself is not powerful enough to elicit the side effects some of these people are claiming. I have suspicions that it is run by a competitor of finasteride, as I have seen the same kind of tactics used against other FDA approved hairloss drugs. Its harder to sell snake oils when their are legitimate drugs out there.

Harklinikken’s formula, refined over 20 years, is derived from plants and cow’s milk. That’s the most Mr. Skjoth will say about it. In the 1990s, clients mixed it with Rogaine, Mr. Skjoth said, “and then we took the Rogaine part away and started focusing on the actual liquid.”
If you think you might be having side effects do the following thing: don’t masturbate, ejaculate, have sex, or even watch porn for that matter, for one week. One week. Just do it. Trust me. Many of you will feel silly for thinking you might have had side effects from finasteride.

Men’s Rogaine Extra Strength Solution is the liquid version of our top pick. It didn’t make our final cut because it includes propylene glycol, which causes irritation in roughly one-third of its users. With that said, Dr. Wolfeld finds that it can be even more effective in practical daily use. In his experience, “the solution can penetrate and get into your scalp a little bit better” than the foam — especially if you’re not taking the time and effort to apply the foam correctly. This seems crazy to us since the foam so quickly dissolved into a liquid in our tests, but if you’re worried, try a one-month supply of the liquid and make the switch to foam if you notice any irritation.
You’ve all seen the ads in the back of men’s magazines, you’ve heard the commercials on the radio and you’ve seen the infomercials promoting miracle treatments for hair loss. The bottom line is that the vast majority of advertised “treatments” do not work for the prevention and treatment of hair loss. If a hair loss treatment is not approved by the FDA or recommended by The American Hair Loss Association, chances are you are wasting your precious time and money. Remember, successful treatment of hair loss is greatly dependent on early intervention. It is critical to begin treatment with an effective product as soon as you notice the onset of hair loss.
24 y/o male. Thinking of starting the big 3 as my hair is a distinct v shape now. Best plan of attack. Get on fin 1mg daily, do I need to use the min all over my head or just the temple areas where it has receeded? That part confuses me the most, why would I need to use it all over my head if only my temples and hairline have receeded?
