There is an endless argument whether herbs are really good and effective at treating and stopping baldness. Based on my personal experience, herbal remedies are one of the best treatments available.

I stopped using my Rogain. Now I use Biotin supplements that I bought from Sprouts. I spend 8 bucks on 90 pills, that is 90 days of pills for 8 bucks. Use slightly above the recommended daily value. If you use too much you will get acne. It seems to be growing my hair back. You can only get Biotin from certain foods like eggs and not many people eat those foods every day.

I use red Light therapy. Red L.E.D. Lights. I started way before that red Led helmet came out. Any red Led (light emitting diode) will work, this is not just a plain red bulb. There is a difference. There are so many now for face treatments and other uses but if it is LED then it will all work the same. I use it for all kinds of things. It will heal my bruises, cuts, burns, muscle aches, etc. it makes everything heal so fast. Even helps my hair grow fast. I will hold it up against my scalp in thinning areas and leave it there for 10 min and then move to another spot. There are no side effects except it makes my hair GROW!! You can tell within a week! Not a month or 3 months. When I would get sinus pain, it would be gone in 5 minutes by just holding the light against my face where my sinus pain would be. Please just google red Led light…….I am not trying to promote a certain website or product. Don’t add therapy or treatment because then you will pull up red led lights marked way up. All red LED lights work the same, whether they are made for your head or to light up a Christmas tree. My first red LED light was a Halloween spotlight that had 5 one watt bulbs in it which cost me $4, that I held up against my scalp and works the same as the one I have now.
There are thousands of commercial products available, but use olive/amla oil for 60-90 days before trying any medicine. Eat a balanced diet, get good sleep, exercise regularly. If it doesn’t help, then consult your doctor.
So excited to see this post! After following your suggestion about not looking for “therapy”, I will definitely be buying a cheaper LED red light rather than a health related product since you say they all work the same! The price difference is ridiculous.
Hair changes about as fast as grass grows, which is to say it’s extraordinarily slow and not visible to anyone checking impatiently in the mirror every day. But during regular follow-up appointments, Harklinikken uses high-tech equipment to photograph and magnify the scalp and count hairs and active follicles, which motivates users to adhere to the regimen. Too many people give up on treatments like Rogaine and low-level-light devices before they’ve had a chance to work, Dr. Senna said.
Please help. My hair has always been my pride and joy. I figured since it is pretty damn healthy, it could deal with some bleach damage. And I figured the master stylist who did all the color-corrections would know how much would be too much. I was wrong, and now I want to burst into tears every time I look at my hair or touch it. I just don’t know what to do. my hair has also NEVER been shorter than this and it breaks and falls out. What should i do to regrow hair?

Panos Vasiloudes, a Tampa dermatologist and Harklinikken’s medical director, said the company has double-blind, placebo-controlled studies it hopes to publish next year in peer-reviewed journals. Such studies are the one thing some dermatologists say they need to recommend the product to patients.

The vast majority of other miracle cures — like thickening shampoos or standing on your head — are nothing more than snake oil, says Kobren. And even effective therapies can be ineffective if the treatment and the root cause don’t align.

I am thinking of using minoxidil to spot treat part of my receding hairline. The patchiness is not really that bad and it’s been concentrated on one side for a few years without getting worse, but I can’t really change the style of my hair much, and that’s the biggest issue for me since I get bored very easily.
Is there a reason the FDA asked the manufacturers to remove azelaic acid from their products. If it’s beneficial which from what I’ve read I think it will be I was thinking of adding it to the minoxidil but I don’t want to do it if there is a risk to my health.
