Who Is Lying to Us About Hair Loss Treatment?
Details of Hair Loss Treatment in Fortuna CA
Hair loss is a hard thing for anybody to grapple with, and women specifically. While it is typically thought to be a male problem, it is also something that affects women as well. It is a problem of several people. Hair loss is crucial to avoid, but a lot of people find that it’s difficult, this is a cure to assist.
Hair loss is a typical problem which is frequently experienced by both women and men and can be brought about by quite a few distinct things including poor diet plan and genetics. It is not cured with just a month or two into any treatment. It is not just a simple appearance problem. The loss of hair because of nutrient-deficient condition can be corrected with the correct diet including adequate heights of all important minerals and vitamins.
Hair can start to fall out for a lot of reasons. It can be extremely frustrating and difficult, if you want to quit losing hair, to purchase plenty of different products which do not do the job. Beautiful and healthful hair enhances your personality.
The main cause of hair loss is called androgenetic alopecia. It is one of the most common problems experienced by men and women all over the world. It will probably halt the loss of hair in most of men, but the quantity of regrowth will be dependent on the person.
There are several types of hair loss and balding. While the mechanism of the phenomenon of hair loss and baldness is not fully understood, there is vast knowledge on the ability to treat the types of hair loss and baldness by medication or natural means.
We are dividing the alopecia types into treatable and non-treatable conditions and we shall hereby explain how one can evaluate the chances of successful treatment in the treatable conditions.
When evaluating the chances of improving the condition of the hair, the most important criteria is the condition of the hair follicles. As long as the hair follicles are alive, there is a chance to grow new hair. Otherwise, there is no basis for any treatment to succeed and the only options are cosmetic- wig, hair transplant etc.
Life period of the hair follicles may reach up to twenty-five years. The hair follicles grow hair in cycles of growth and fall. In the process of hair loss, each cycle of growth produces shorter, thinner hair and there is less pigment (color).
When the scalp has a bright plume, it indicates that the hair follicle is still alive but dormant. Given the appropriate specialist’s knowledge and therapy, the hair follicle can be stimulated to grow hair. However if the surface is completely smooth, it indicates that the hair follicle is no longer alive and there is zero chance to grow hair- except in some cases as explained below (Alopecia Areata, Totalis and Universalis).
The different types of hair loss and the chances of growth of new hair are hereby given.
Non Treatable conditions
The conditions of hair loss which have no chance of hair regrowth are: Alopecia from birth, Scarring Alopecia, Traction Alopecia and Lupus disease.
Alopecia from birth is a rare condition, where the infant is born without hair follicles.
In Scarring Alopecia the infected zone looks like a scar and the hair follicles are dead. The reasons of the phenomena are unknown. The chances of growing new hair are zero, but with proper treatment the expansion of the Scarring Alopecia can be stopped.
In Traction Alopecia the hair is pulled out of the scalp and the hair follicle becomes weak and dies.
In alopecia which is caused by Lupus disease, the skin is rough and pink and the chances of growth of hair is almost non existent.
The conditions of hair loss which has a chance to be treated successfully are: Male Pattern Alopecia, Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis.
Male Pattern Alopecia is common male baldness. It’s characteristics are loss of hair at the front and crown area first. In many cases, there is still at least hair plume, hair loss and baldness can be stopped by affecting the hair follicles.
In Alopecia Areata condition, typical round hair loss patches evolve rapidly. Sometimes the bald patches spread to full hair loss of the scalp (Alopecia Totalis) or even whole body areas (Alopecia Universalis). The phenomenon could harm men, women and small children. Conventional medicine assumes the Alopecia Areata condition is an autoimmune disease, though the exact mechanism of Alopecia Areata is not known nor fully understood.
In many cases Alopecia Areata is caused by psychological pressure: people who experienced trauma have sometimes lost entire hair within hours or days.
Evaluating Chances of Successful Treatment
As explained in the introduction, the condition of the hair follicles is the most important criteria for evaluating the chances of successful treatment. Existence of thin white hair is a visible sign for living hair follicles. The thin white hair can be noticed when examining the scalp from close distance, with good light conditions. Sometimes viewing the scalp from an angle against light source helps to see the thin white hair.
Naturally, when there is thin white hair on the alopecia area, it indicates that the hair follicles are weak but alive, so there is a basis to grow hair, given the proper treatment. But when the alopecia area is smooth, the evaluation depends on the alopecia type:
In male pattern alopecia condition, smooth scalp is a clear indication that the hair follicles are not alive and there is no chance to grow new hair. However in Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis the hair follicles sometimes remain alive even if the alopecia area is smooth and evaluating the condition of the hair follicles should take into consideration other important factors.
The factors which play important role in the condition of the hair follicles and hence the chances of success:
– Age of the patient: at younger age there are higher chances to recover
– Period with Alopeia Areata condition: if the condition is recent, the chances are higher. Among people who experienced Alopecia Areata for decades, the hair follicles are probably too weak.
– Alopecia Areata condition was due to a shock: In those cases, the chances of recovery are better.
– Use of violent and inappropriate treatment: Some treatments cause permanent damage to the hair follicles. In such cases, even if there is growth of hair, it is common that once the treatment is stopped the hair falls and the hair follicles remain weaker, which makes it harder to stimulate growth.
– Thin white hair: as previously explained, if there is thin white hair the chances of recovery increase.
– Use of wig: When a wig is applied, the scalp’s skin is not normally exposed to air and is not breathing (skin is not able to absorb oxygen). In cases of wig users, the chances of recovery are lower. If wig is attached by glue, chances are near zero.
It should be emphasized that these are general guidelines for treatment success chances, based on experience with a population of Alopecia Areata patients. A personal evaluation is required in order to accurately evaluate the success chances of a specific person.
Choosing the Right Treatment
There are natural or medication therapies which are intended to revive the hair roots. When considering medication treatment, it is advised to consult with a specialist dermatologist and inquire about possible side effects. The internet includes vast information about the side effects of conventional treatments. In case of natural treatments, it is advised to seek for a treatment which is certified by a recognized organization. The treatment should be certified for being safe for usage and without any side effects. In order to be certified for zero side effects, the treatment should contain only herbs and plants with the maximal safety degree – edible herbs- as defined by the U.S. CTFA list of plants.

The Psychology of Hair Loss in Teenagers and Young Adults
In the late teens, an individual is dealing with pubertal and post pubertal physiologic changes, the challenges of seeing the world with a new eye, the loss of innocence, school, pressure form peers and social groups etc. These in themselves are psychological stressors that define and shape our humanity. The manner in which we cope with these early stressors have the potential for defining who we become for the remainder of our lives. Adding hair loss to that burden in a teenager’s life can have far reaching consequences. There is potential for it to result in depression, social withdrawal and even paranoia. An individual whose development is influenced by these additional stressors would be at a disadvantage in all realms of life.
Hair Restoration Surgery In Teenage and Young Adults – What Could Go Wrong?
A young patient considering a hair transplant in Fortuna California should always remember that transplanted hairs are permanent, while the hair they currently have is temporary as the hair loss would progress with age. Because the extent and rate of hair loss progression cannot be predicted, planning a hair transplant can be tricky. If this is not taken into account a hair transplant would potentially result in an odd hair pattern which results after a transplant that initially merged into adjacent pre-existing hairlines assumes an odd look. This would occur when the previously blended pre-existing hairline progressively receded to create a bald gap between it and the transplanted hairs. To correct this, more hair transplants would be required to bridge the gap. However, this odd pattern might not be remediable if:
1. The patient runs out of donor hair. This is especially a problem in patients with severe baldness, or when the transplanted hairline was placed too aggressively
2. The patient cannot financially afford the cost of further procedures
3. Body hair cannot be used either because the doctors at the patients’ disposal lack the experience, skill or the technology required to perform successful FUE transplant using body hair (BHT) consistently. In some patients, however, BHT is not conceivable on account of an absolute lack of body and beard hair. There is a great deal of inter ethic variation in the quality and quantity of body hair in individuals.
Hair Transplant Repair Options for Victims of Hair Transplants Performed at Young Age
Unless the hair transplant on a young patient involved the creation of a very conservative hairline, the first challenge in most of these patients is the depletion of head donor hair supply often compounded by the presence of follicular unit strip surgery and / or FUE scars. In these head donor depleted patients, a successful and credible repair and restoration work would necessitate the use of beard and body hairs in BHT repair work. Donor source in BHT can include facial hair as well as hairs from the torso and limbs. A recent 122 patient study published in the Aesthetic surgery journal describes the criteria for determining the suitability of BHT donor hair. What more, the study described the kinds of features an FUE equipment used in BHT should possess. Younger patients destined for severe baldness should begin incorporating beard and body hair earlier on in their hair transplantation odyssey. With proper planning, requisite doctor experience and skill as well as the proper utensils it is indeed possible to execute a successful FUE repair in young victims of ill-conceived hair restoration surgeries Fortuna CA that were performed at a young age.

Some Common Q & A’s
Bald Spot Treatment? Is Mine Serious? =(?
I Am 17 Years Old, Male And Recently, My Cousin Had Indicated To Me That I Had A Small Bald Spot On My Head. Its Near The Back;Not Substantially Big, But Big Enough To Make Me Flip. Im Used To Having Lots Of Hair, So This Bald Spot Is Really Big To Me. I Have Been Encountering Lots Of Stress Lately And Have Not Been Eating Very Healthy (Tend To Eat Out Frequently These Days Due To Lack Of Time). Is This Serious Issue;Would My Hair Grow Back And Remove The Bald Spot In A Matter Of Time? Or Do I Need To Get Some Treatment From A Doctor? Is It Natural? Thank You!
From your explanation it sounds like you have Alopecia Areata, an autoimmune disease. It causes bald spot that can spread to the whole scalp and sometimes even the whole body. It is suspected that the main cause is stress.
For a start you can compare with the images in www.curespotbaldness.com. Following this, a skin biopsy carried out by a trained medical practioner is the best way to diagnose and confirm.
My bro had the same problem and managed to recover through a treatment he found in the website. You might want to consider it. Wish you a quick recovery

.I Used To Wear Tight Ponytails, So My Hair Is Receding In The Front And There Is Gap In The Scalp At Front.....Is This Repairable ..Pls Suggest Some Natural Remedies And Not Surgeries And So On..
Traction alopecia is hair loss that occurs as a result of continuous pulling of the hair. Pulling may occur from hairstyles such as tight cornrows, plaits or braids with or without extensions, weaves, ponytails or even hair rollers or curlers. Natural hairstyles can also lead to traction alopecia as well. Long heavy locks and tightly coiled twists can lead to traction alopecia. The hair loss associated with traction alopecia typically occurs at the frontal hairline, at the temples or the area of the scalp above the ears. It may also occur at the posterior hairline. http://search.yahoo.com/search?ei=utf-8&...

CHANGE how you style your hair. Loose hair is better, use head bands to get them off your face.
Soft & Silky what shampoo:
"Overloading the hair doesn't give better results. If you need more than more than 2-3 styling products, you're probably using the wrong ones."

How Can A Women Stop Hair Loss?
I Am 68 And Really Looseing My Hair I Have Short In Front And Long In Back But My Brush Is Always Full Of Hair Afer I Brush
Heredity, hormones, stress, diet, illness, poor hair care – all are factors in hair loss.
Stress, diet and illness are more temporary conditions and usually the hair loss is reversed when the anxiety-producing conditions dissipate, when the diet is improved, when hair care improves and when an illness is cured or gotten under control.
Heredity and hormones are different matters, however. Heredity is an irreversible condition. You are a product of your parents, and hair loss is often inherited. Hormones are tricky, hidden things, however, and they have different effects on an individual basis.
In a male, testosterone abides abundantly. There are also enzymes working on testosterone which product a substance called DHT. DHT is now known to circulate in the blood and cause other conditions, one of which is the shrinking of hair follicles. When hair follicles shrink enough, they are unable to produce and push a new hair through. As old hair dies, it is then not replaced.
In women, hormonal imbalances can also cause hair loss. Pregnancy, childbirth and menopause all cause significant hormonal change and imbalances with both physical and mental effects. These changes can also cause hair loss, both temporary and permanent.
Hair loss and re-growth products have been around for centuries. In ancient times, a variety of herbal and oil-based remedies were concocted and used by Egyptians, Aztecs, Mayans, and American Indians, all with some degree of effectiveness for some people. Modern medical research has focused on ways to re-open and stimulate “dead” hair follicles, so that hair growth can re-occur naturally, as well as keep the healthy follicles healthy. Thus, a number of products have become available, both by prescription and over-the-counter. They are advertised on radio and television and all over the Internet. One need only do a “google” search on hair loss, and there are literally thousands of sites and products for investigation.
One ingredient in many hair loss products is minoxidil. Research studies have shown that in about 80% of the participants, products containing this ingredient are effective in slowing hair loss and, in some, causing re-growth to occur.
Probably the most well known is Rogaine, available at any drug store, in varieties for both men and women. Most scientifically-produced products do have separate products for males and females, because, of course, hormones in each are different and of different levels.
An additional product containing minoxidil is Provillus, and, again, studies have shown it to be effective. The difference between Provillus and other similar products is that the makes have added Azelaic Acid, an additional ingredient which appears to enhance the follicle repair in both men and women. Provillus has been the subject of many studies, just as the other products, and level of effectiveness may be higher.
Provillus is available for both men and women, and the treatment is a combination of a topical liquid applied to the balding areas, as well as a pill or capsule to be taken in conjunction with the liquid. The critical key to effectiveness, according to its makers, is the addition of the azelaic acid, however, the correct amount of this acid is most important piece of this treatment.
As with most hair loss products, the makers recommend patience. It may take from 3-6 months for improvement to occur, however, there is a money-back guarantee up to 180 days if one is not satisfied that it is working for him/her.
Medical research is far from finished in its exploration of products which will stop hair loss and promote re-growth of “permanent” loss. As this research continues, existing producers will undoubtedly alter their products accordingly.
Fortunately, a lot of money is being poured into the research, so hair loss sufferers, take heart!

Facial Hair Removal Cream For Men?
Hi. I'M 22 Male Who Hates Shaving. My Beard Is Problematic When Various Products Do Not Help Shave Properly. I Always Have Razor Cuts.
I Searched Via Internet For Really Good Cream That Could Help, I Red A Lot Of Reviews, But I Need An Advice From Men Who Found Their Solution. What Would You Recommend? I Can'T Afford Laser Surgery.
There Is A Lot Of Creams Out There, But Witch Is The Best?
Hair removal creams will have a limited effect on facial hair and may cause irritation. Also, they probably won't fully get rid of facial hair either, therefore you may still have to shave. If you are having problems shaving then I recommend shaving with the grain rather than against the grain. I myself have very thick facial hair and I shave sideways to the grain. This works well for me so you could try that if you wanted.
If you really don't like having a 5 O'Clock shadow appearance, then there are concealing products on the market that disguise it.
Golden Retriever - Major Loss Of Hair?
My Golden Is A 6 Year Old Female That Is Loosing Her Hair...
She Has A Bald Spot On The Side Of Her Neck And She Is Starting To Get Streaks On Her Back She Is Shedding Massively. She Has A History Of Thyroid Problems The Vet Gave Us Pills For That But We Found Out That Could Be What Is Causing Her Seizures... The Hair Loss Has Mostly Happen Within The Last 6 Months.
I Really Care A Lot About Here And I Just Need To Know If There Is Something That I Can Do To Make The Rest Of Her Life Worth Living.
Thyroid problems as well as hormone imbalance can be the cause of it. My 1st GR got it when she 1st came in heat. The hormones in her body was changing so that caused her to lose hair in patches. She looked horrible. My other GR now has Hypothyroidism after her spay surgery & I don't know what's the real cause of it but anyway, she used to lose a lot of hair almost every two months. She is now on medication for life & her hair has not dropped off ever since. She has very thick double coat & I live in a hot & humid country & I don't even leave my A/C on often.
I think the reason why your dog started shedding heavily is because you stopped the medication. I'm not really sure but it could be the cause of it. Now, I don't know when you stopped her medication but if her hair loss started after the medication was stopped, then I think it's because of that.
You might want to get a second opinion from a different Vet. She probably may need to go through a blood test but sometimes, nothing can be found that is causing it. And the only thing that you can think of that is causing it is her thyroid problem.
Hope this helped you a bit.
ADD: Like I said earlier on, go get another opinion from a different Vet & there might be another type of medication for her. If the seizures still persist, then maybe she cannot be treated because she has some allergy reaction to the pills & you just have to live with the problem she has right now. She will always be shedding. You cannot stop it. Only the pills can.

year ago I suffered from hair loss and since hair loss is hereditary my dad suffered from it too and I started trying everything you can imagine to stop my hair loss. the things that really worked for me was:
1) Vitamin A - an anti-oxidant which promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp;
2) Vitamin E stimulates circulation. Good blood circulation in the scalp is important in keeping hair follicles productive. The 'B' vitamins contribute to melanin, which gives hair its healthy color and also stimulates blood circulation;
3) massage is also beneficial. Massage stimulates circulation. As already noted, good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Experts suggest a few minutes of daily head massage by hand. Circulation through massage may be improved by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base with massage;
4) Try rubbing your scalp with garlic juice, Onion Juice or Ginger Juice(you can either of one out of three, Do not mix any of two or three);
5) also you should use some herbal treatment.in that case Provillus is a good product that helps prevent hair loss and it is an FDA approved product. I think it is very important!
It worked and still works for me!
I do not know if any pharmacies carry Provillus but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.provillus.com/?aid=749165
Have You Seen Anyone Who Has Been To A Hair Loss Center And Received Help ?
I have a friend I used to work with and they did a fine job on his hair restoration : )
My Hair Used To Be Straight And Silky (I'M A Guy), But When I Was In High School I Used Hair Gels For Several Years. Few Years After I Decided To Stop Using It, I Stopped Using It For About 4-5 Yrs, But When I Stopped Using It My Hair Became Curly And Seems Dry And Burnt. What Hair Treatment Should I Get To Have Healthy Straight Hair. I Tried To Shave My Head Bald Before Hoping My Hair Would Get Straight As It Grows Hehehe. Hope You Guys Help Me Out. Thanks!
for being dry and burnt: You can go to a salon usually and ask them to restore your hair. I usually do that after each summer when the sun has dried out my hair from the beach. You can also use cholesterol creme or leave in conditioner. Get shampoo made for restoration of hair, and don't wash it every day, let your hair's natural oils do their job. You can shower just dont wash your hair more than like every 2 days.
For straiter hair: you can put in straitening creme, use a straitener, or blow dry it with a diffuser and take a brush to it and blow dry it strait, go get it thermally straitened at a salon. theres plenty of things.
Good luck. =]
