I want to caution people against using Mintop (or minoxidil), an anti-hypertensive medication. If you read in various forum about the horrible side-effects you will want to keep away from it. Some of the side-effects of minoxidil include: redness and irritation at the treated area, unwanted hair growth, contact dermatitis, irritation of eyes, early wrinkles – it can actually age your face (read the reviews on forums), dark circles under the eyes, bloated eyelids, and many more.
Telogen effluvium: In this condition, emotional or physical stress pushes large numbers of growing hairs into a resting phase. Within a few months, the affected hairs may fall out suddenly when simply combing or washing your hair.
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.
Anagen Effluvium: This kind of hair loss is very similar to telogen effluvium, except that it generally results in the loss of all hair, not just patches here or there. Anagen effluvium is most commonly suffered by those who are receiving relief for various forms of cancer, including chemotherapy and certain kinds of drug cocktails designed to kill cancer cells. Another reason for this kind of hair loss would be the ingestion of a toxic substance.
In men, at least, baldness and thinning hair may occur because they inherited hair follicles that are over-sensitive to something called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Testosterone that’s converted to DHT will shrink hair follicles.
Her hope is that the procedure (she has helped start a company named Rapunzel to develop it) will eventually become another lunchtime cosmetic treatment. Once a patient has had her cells harvested and cultured, they could be stored indefinitely; then, after giving her doctor a month’s notice (the time it takes to grow the million needed), she could pop in for injections. Costs would likely be on par with hair transplants, roughly $10,000 and up.
“With this, hair loss is caused by the testosterone derivative dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which results in the hair cycle getting shorter and the hair follicles shrinking until they eventually disappear.
Side effects, which are most often of a sexual nature, like loss of libido and erectile dysfunction, affect only a very small percentage of patients. And more often than not, they are psychological. The chances of you experiencing real side effects are next to impossible.
During the procedure, a small section of a hairy scalp is removed (donor area) and the remaining skin is stitched together. Then, small groups of hair are carefully separated out from the donor area inserted into the bald area.

Thank you so much for such detailed posts.I have been using few hair rinses and shampoos that you have mentioned here since i was in school(all thanks and love to my Mom) and my hair are in good shape. Although the recent protein treatment had cause a lot of hairfall. The hairfall had reduced since i have switched back to my older regime.
Hi, you are very young and your body will recover quickly if you follow a healthy lifestyle. When my vitamin D was low I noticed I had very bad hair fall and once the levels were up it slowed down considerable. I made sure to spend about 30 minutes in sun few times a week and occasionally took vitamin D supplements.
First, you must determine the cause of the breakage and the reason why your hair is falling out. Assess your stress level and lifestyle choices. Are you frequently coloring your hair or using a shampoo that with sulfates? If you are following the above steps mentioned in the article but haven’t seen results, please see your health-care provider to ensure you don’t have an underlying condition leaving you with chronically thinning hair.
I can get hold of the 5mg Proscar brand or 5mg generic brand from a licensed doctor here in the UK who kindly prescribes it to be cut in to 4th’s or 5th’s, I’m just not sure about the hassle of chopping it up and trying to get it into equal parts haha But of course I can opt for the expensive route and get Propecia brand 1mg.
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.
Apply 1 ml of minoxidil liquid (or 1 foam squeeze, if you are using the foam version) all over the top of your scalp twice per day, with at least an 8-hour window of time in-between. It takes only a few minutes to apply, even less with the foam version. It’s faster than washing your teeth.
However, the cycle can be interrupted or made shorter by a number of things, including when blood levels of the androgen Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) are too high, such as with AGA, or when the immune system is mistakenly compelled to attack the follicle, such as with alopecia areata (AA). It can also be permanently shut down when follicles are damaged beyond repair (we’re born with all the hair follicles we’ll ever have, so once one is taken out of commission, that’s that).
