Again, Rogaine is for men – not women – who have hereditary hair loss. Males under 18 shouldn’t use it, or men whose hair loss is primarily contained to the front of the scalp (i.e., a receding hairline). If you have no family history of hair loss or don’t know the reason for your thinning hair, then consult a medical professional before using Rogaine.
“It is vital that individuals suffering from hair loss and thinning hair take a holistic approach to treatment,” encourages Kinglsey. “While using styling products that give immediate satisfaction is highly important to self-esteem, addressing underlying factors that may be exacerbating the loss are also key to long-term improvement; and these all take time, so it’s important to be patient.”
After 20 years of trying every drug, supplement, diet and procedure for hair loss — including driving four hours twice a week for laser therapy — Lina Telford, a graphic artist, gave up on her “comb over” (her description) and shaved her head. From then on, she alternated between a $1,500 wig and a $4,000 wig.

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).
“The best candidate for hair restoration surgery has had hair loss for a number of years but has stabilized and is not losing more hair quickly,” Kaufman says. “A person needs to have realistic expectations of what can be done to give them a natural appearing hair line.”
The only way to guarantee hair growth is to have DHT-resistant follicles at the back of the scalp surgically transplanted to the thin spots at the hair line, forelock, vertex or crown. Surgical hair restoration is the #1 elective surgical procedure utilized by American men. However, before jumping into hair transplant surgery, do your research! There are many things to consider. Ask questions and share ideas with other hair loss sufferers at the Hair Restoration Research Forums.
Advancing the theory of donor dominance, Walter P. Unger, M.D. defined the parameters of the “Safe Donor Zone” from which the most permanent hair follicles could be extracted for hair transplantation. As transplanted hair will only grow in its new site for as long as it would have in its original one, these parameters continue to serve as the fundamental foundation for hair follicle harvesting, whether by strip method or FUE.

Bimatoprost, the synthetic prostaglandin in the prescription lash-growth serum Latisse, is in clinical trials for FDA approval as a topical scalp hair loss treatment. It could be available in the next few years.
Earlier this year, the authors of a PLOS-One study published this January may have made a giant leap in understanding how to accomplish that goal. From human pluripotent (embryonic) stem cells, they created cells that resembled dermal papilla cells, which reside underneath and regulate our follicles, and grafted them into the skin of albino mice. They discovered that these cells were able to stimulate hair growth.
