Sometimes a supplement is all you need. “The combination of fish protein, vitamin C, zinc, biotin, and niacin in Viviscal supplements encourages the body to produce healthier, thicker strands,” says New York City dermatologist Joshua Zeichner. ($50, viviscal.com)
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 ?
In order to identify ingredients of health concern, we utilize the science of health hazard assessment and rely on lists of chemicals labeled hazardous by various authoritative organizations. GoodGuide tracks whether chemicals are recognized or suspected of causing any of twelve major types of human health problems, ranging from cancer to endocrine toxicity to skin or eye toxicity. We combine this hazard data with chemical potency, human detection frequency and toxicity testing information, in order to assign ingredients to four levels of health concern: none, low, medium and high.
You have a defined jawline, a strong brow ridge, a nice head shape and have the ability to grow a decent amount of facial hair? Then hair loss may not be a big deal in your case. You won’t lose much (if any) points in the looks department.

Skeptical about products that talk about help for thinning hair, I tried Rogaine Foam for Women. I tried it for four months. It took about 4 weeks to notice the slightest improvement. I decided not to look to closely everyday, because looking in the mirror daily for the smallest signs of hair growth will literally drive you crazy. However after 5 months I could not believe what the pictures were showing. My hairline was looking better.
They hurt, but they work. lnjecting cortisone directly into the scalp blocks the hormonal activity that induces hair thinning. This works especially well in patients with inflammatory scalp disease, says Bergfeld.
Spironolactone (Aldactone) is primarily used to treat fluid build-up due to heart failure, kidney disease, or liver scarring. It’s also used for treating high blood pressure, low blood potassium, excessive hair growth in women, and transgender hormone therapy.
There’s some evidence that peppermint oil can help with hair growth. Rosemary oil has also been traditionally used to increase blood circulation on the scalp. A 2013 study found that rosemary leaf extract improved hair regrowth in mice.
Like the cure for cancer, those new treatments aren’t nearly ready for prime time. But they’re coming, promises George Cotsarelis, MD, director of the Hair and Scalp Clinic at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
As we mentioned, just not washing your hair isn’t enough to stop hair loss. You’ll need to get to the root of what’s causing the problem, whether it’s a thyroid condition, another illness, or overuse of styling products and stress. The sooner you get help, the better your chances of stopping and reversing it.
Most people assume that male pattern baldness is genetic. This may be true, but we must not discount the environmental elements, which are often similar from generation to generation. This means that the behaviors and diet habits of a bald man can be passed on to his son and it may be THOSE that make the hair loss to APPEAR genetic. It could be merely a lifestyle that is so similar that the baldness is similarly induced! For example, a love of greasy foods, which are known to block the small capillaries to the scalp, can be passed on from a father to his son. Is the son’s baldness genetic, or does he just have bad scalp circulation?
Another product that may slow hair loss is used in shampoos that fight dandruff. It’s called Ketoconazole. It slows down the damage that DHT does to hair follicles by reducing the production of testosterone. Although a 1% solution is easy to find, you’ll need a prescription to purchase the more effective 2% concentration.
