What You Need to Know About Hair Loss Treatment
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.
Humans have tried every imaginable thing to stop hair loss and regrow lost hair. They rubbed the juices of all vegetables and fruits, and extracts of every available herb. Yet, they were unable to find any effective hair growth treatment. Undoubtedly there are numerous natural and herbal treatments for hair growth, but almost all lack systematic studies. If we ever hope to grow hair by natural means, we need to study natural remedies thoroughly. And even those with proven effects need a lot of time and patience to be effective. Another thing that makes natural remedies the least preferred choice in this age of technology is their temporary results. Hairs grown through natural sources do not long last, and start shedding off as soon as the use is discontinued.
For now, we have three types of hair growth treatments that help regrow hair in a natural manner restore a thicker and fuller head of hair. These include medical treatment, laser therapy, and surgical hair restoration.
Medical Hair Growth Treatment
There are a few options available to treat this through medications. Actually, these treatments produce better results if you take them in combination with one another. Let us have a look at these FDA-approved effective hair loss medicines.
• Finasteride: Finasteride is the generic name of the probably most effective hair loss drug. This drug treats hair loss by inhibiting production of hair killing hormone DHT. DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is the most important hormone that signals the hair follicles to die – the most common cause of Androgenic Alopecia or male pattern baldness. To date, inhibiting this hormone is the most effective way to stop hair loss. Besides controlling hair loss, this medication thickens fine hair, and this produces considerable effect.
• Minoxidil: It is the second most effective treatment. It is supplied in the form of a topical solution. Minoxidil is also a generic name; famous brand names of this medication include Rogaine and Hair Max. You need to apply this solution on the scalp twice a day, or as prescribed by the doctor and massage for a few minutes.
• Ketoconazole: This medication is supplied as a shampoo-like solution. This encourages hair growth by keeping the scalp clean from fungus and dandruff. You need to use this as a shampoo twice a week, and leave the leather for 3-5 minutes on your head.
No doubt researchers have studied these medications and found them effective, they are not perfect yet. First, their effectiveness varies from person to person. One may find it very effective while another may find it minimally effective. Second, the effects of all medications are temporary. You will maintain your hair as long as you continue the use of these medications. Whenever you decide to discontinue the treatment, you will lose your hair maintained by these medications. Third, like all other medication, hair loss medication is not without side effects. You must discuss its side effects before starting the treatment.
Low-Level Laser Therapy
Low-level laser is showing some measurable results to stimulate hair growth. Currently, it is regarded as convenient alternative of medication with fewer side effects. However, its effectiveness is an issue of debate. Until now, it is unable to show dramatic improvement in hair density.
Surgical Hair Growth Treatment-Hair Transplant
Hair transplant is to date the most effective treatment to date. It can restore hair on balding places in an effective and predictable manner. Hair transplant extracts healthy, balding resistant hair follicles form one area of the head and plants them to the balding areas. Not all hairs on our head are prone to balding. While the hair at the front and crown of the head are prone to hair loss, hair at the sides and back of the head are resistant to it. This procedure makes excellent use of these hair reserves on our head.
• Follicular Unit Transplant: Also known as the strip removal method, FUT excises a strip of scalp, usually from the back of the head, and dissects is to obtain required hair follicles. The wound is stitched together and the grafts obtained from the strip and implanted on the thinning or bald areas.
• Follicular Unit Extraction: FUE is a relatively newer and more advanced technique replacing the traditional strip removal method. This technique involves extracting the hair follicles directly from the scalp, without cutting and stitching the scalp. The follicles are extracted using a specially designed punch tool with diameter less than 0.1 mm. What makes FUE a more preferred choice of surgeons and patients is its ability to extract hair follicles form body areas like chest, armpits, and legs as well.
• Stem Cell FUE: Stem Cell FUE is the latest advancement in FUE hair transplant. It is the quickest, safest and the most effective hair transplant technique to date. It uses an automated punch tool for extraction of hair follicles at the fastest possible speed. It also allows hair regrowth at the donor area, thus ensuring the most natural looking results.
A hair transplant has only one limitation: the availability of donor hair. At present, there is no way to create new hair follicles; therefore, the patient must have healthy, balding resistant hair follicles somewhere on the scalp or the body. Fortunately, most of us have enough donor hair on the scalp or on the body to create a dramatic improvement in hair density.

That is the question that motivates Dr. Brett Bolton, a hair transplant surgeon in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Today’s ‘gold standard’ of hair transplantation is not high enough for Dr. Bolton who has specialized in hair restoration since 1997. In the late 90’s he was fortunate enough to enter the field of hair transplant surgery during a transitional time when technology was being shaped. Outdated techniques like the large chunky hair plugs, punch grafts and flap surgeries Kamuela Hawaii were on their way out and the defining new technique of follicular unit transplantation (FUT) was just cresting the horizon. Dr. Bolton’s vantage point at that time could not have been any better. He learned from the mistakes of other hair doctors as he repaired bad transplants, and he also gleaned valuable techniques from talented surgeons like the late Dr. Constantine Chambers who did wonders with old technology, especially in the crown area.
With FUT, doctors transplant small slit grafts which contain only one hair bundle. These grafts are harvested from a single strip of donor tissue and separated under a microscope. They contain a naturally occurring bundle of 1-4 hairs. The result is very natural-looking but Dr. Bolton would argue that there is not enough hair density to give patients a satisfying outcome with 1-4 hair grafts only.
In the early 2000’s, it became exceptionable for doctors to perform surgeries using anything other than FUT. However, Dr. Bolton had already developed a method of transplantation using a mixture of graft sizes that far outperformed the standard follicular unit transplantation. He was not willing to cast off a technique that was proving to be extremely successful in his practice despite pressure from peers. Instead, he refined and developed this approach and proudly applies Multi-Unit Hair Grafting , which he co-developed at PAI Medical Group in Nashville, Tennessee. By using a combination of micrografts (single hair grafts), follicular units and multiple follicular unit grafts, which is a slit graft containing 2 to 3 follicular units, Dr. Bolton gives patients 2-3 times the density compared to other doctors who use FUT only.
Some of Dr. Bolton’s peers suggest in error that multi-unit grafts are old style hair plugs. These new style slit grafts are slightly larger than standard follicular units. Separated under a microscope just like follicular units, these multi-unit grafts are not harvested with a punch biopsy instrument. This insures hardiness of the delicate hair follicles and surrounding tissue. They are never used in the frontal hairline and are strategically placed throughout the vertex and crown to make the most of density. This style of transplantation is so unique, Dr. Bolton cannot even charge by the graft because it simply doesn’t translate. Instead, he charges by hair volume. When compared to competitors, hair for hair, Dr. Bolton’s surgery is the best value in the industry.

I Have Female Pattern Baldness.I Have Had Hair Transplant.I Need More Hair.I Am 45.Any More Suggestion'S?
I Am 45.I Have Female Pattern Baldness.I Got Hair Transplant Done 2 Years Ago It Covers My Front Bald Spots.I Have Thinning In Other Parts.I Do Not Want To Undergo One More Transplant.Any Methods To Camoflauge
You may not like this suggestion, but I'm going to offer my advice anyway. Shave your head. I understand this idea may seem ridiculous to you at first blush, because so many women derive much of their esteem from having a full head of hair. I also realize we are not accustomed to seeing women without hair, but I think many women look beautiful without hair. I worked for a woman who had alopecia totalus (she was completely bald). Nevertheless, she is a woman of uncommon character, beauty, intelligence, vision and compassion. She is the principal of gifted and talented elementary school in Denver. I have never worked for another person I admired more. To my knowledge she has never allowed her condition to define her, though I'm sure she has suffered from ridicule throughout her adult life from both the ignorant and the stupid. I acknowledge that it takes a lot of faith and inner strength to abandon what in so many ways marks your femininity, but I encourage you to try. Think of the many women who suffer hair loss because of chemotherapy during cancer treatment yet persevere in the face of such adversity. No, I don't have to walk in your shoes, so you may think my advice cavalier. I assure you I am not attempting to be so. I shaved my head years ago when it was not as common as it is now and I had to deal with a lot of heckling, but I'm happy with my choice. I wish you well!
Question About Hair Loss/Regrowth & Braids?
Okay, I'Ve Had Long Hair For Going On 10 Years Now, & For The Most Part, I Keep It Braided. Normally, The Braids Aren'T Too Tight, & About 90-95% Of The Time, They Aren'T Really Tight At All After They'Ve Been In For A Couple Of Hours.
But, Obviously, Having Braids Has It'S Setbacks, The Main Being That My Hairline Isn'T Where It Once Was. I Know This Is Because Of The Fact That When You Get Your Hair Braided, Whether It'S Tight Or Not, It'S Pulling On Your Hairline.
I Recently Got My Hair Braided, But I'M Thinking Of Leaving It Down For A While In Order To Let My Hair Regrow & Basically Let My Hairline Be Somewhat Where It Used To Be. But, My Question Is, How Long Would I Need To Go Without Braids In Order To Experience Regrowth?
And When My Hair Is Down, What Can I Do To Prevent It From Getting Shorter? Also, If I Made An Effort To Get More Vitamin C, As Well As Drink Water, Would That All Work To My Advantage In Getting The Hair I'Ve Lost In The Front To Regrow?
Tips for Preventing Hair Loss:
* Avoid overwashing These can cause excess oil production.
*Avoid shampoos that have harsh chemicals, use a mild shampoo also wash your hair twice a week instead of every day.
* Bleaching and dying hair so often is that the chemicals are harsh and can lead to hair loss, coloring your hair every six months, highlights should be done every two to four months.
* Avoid daily heat styling, you should also try to stay away from high heat things such as such as a flat iron, curling iron or blow dryer
* Shower with warm water instead hot water.
* Use a heat protectant when you use a heated styling tool and your hair is most variable when it wet try dry your hair on medium or low heat rather than high heat of the hair dryer, If you use a towel take good care of your hair, do not scratch or damage your scalp.
* Massage your scalp with essential oils.
* Use brush with rounded teeth, harsh nylon bristles and sharp teeth may damage the hair and scalp.
* Eat loaded with omega-3 fatty acids like fish, walnuts, flax seed and fish oil supplement other recommended food like egg, milk, green tea, avocado also avoid animal fat food like red meat
How Do I Maintain This Look With My Hair?
Not To Sound Gross, But When My Hair Is Greasy It Gets Flat And Straight, And That'S The Way I Like It. However, After A Shower And The Next Day Or So, It'S Poofy/Curly And It Looks Like I Have Major Helmet Head. How Can I Keep It Like When It Is Greasy?
I don't know how long your hair is or the style, but there are all kinds of hair creams, oils, waxes, tonics, putties, clays, pomades etc that can be used to act as replacement for the sebum that is stripped from the hair shaft when shampoo. Even with a crew cut, the hair can be uncontrollable and stick out after shampooing. This is why when more than every other college and college prep high school guy wore a crew cut, flat top crew cut or ivy league(long crew cut), about 99% wore butch wax. When my hair is in a crew or ivy I always use butch wax aka control wax but for longer styles I prefer it to have body and wave and just use a few quick brief pumps of a maximum hold spritz. A lot of guys now use waxes, pomades and putties on longer hair but I personally think it looks like the guy has been sleeping on a park bench for a few weeks when long hair on the back/sides has wax or pomade. These guys use way more than a guy does for a crew cut because it really isn't possible to apply it to that much hair in extreme moderation as with a short cut, or alt least many don't know how. Any way if that is the look you want try a matte paste. Krew comb will also work if your hair isn't that long, and it washes out very easily in comparison to a wax. I use it when growing an ivy league to a regular taper cut till the top hair is about 2.5" long and starts to wave. If your hair is tapered n the back/sides then almost any of the above mentioned products will work.
Here is how a control wax is applied to groom one of the short pomp styles- crew cut, ivy league, flat top crew cut- whichever style, it's basically the same and takes about a minute or two.
1) Towel dry hair.
2) Barely dip fingertips in jar of wax.
3)Transfer wax to palms.
4) Smooth palms over hair.
5)Brush hair off forehead to form short pomp front.
For a longer style, I'd recommend also using wax in just as extreme of moderation but many guys don't, and they get the greasy sleeping on the park bench look. A mild shampoo like therappe and a good moisturizing conditioner like humectress will also help. Most shampoos are alkaline or pH balanced with a few of the most mild slightly acidic. Sebum has a pH in the mid 4 range. Conditioners are acidic and return the hair to near the pH of sebum. There are also leave in conditioners that will stop the poofiness.
What Have You Tried To Help Prevent Balding/Regrow Hair?
My Boyfriend Is Only 24 And His Hair Is Thinning On The Top Of His Head. Its Starting To Get Noticeable And He'S Obsessing Over It. Has Anybody Tried A Product (Besides Surgery And Laser Treatment) And Actually Got Results? If You Have, What Was It And How Much Did It Cost?
Causes for hair loss:
-Eating disorders can result in this condition due to the deficiency of iron and protein.
-Persistent use of certain medication to treat arthritis depression, sleep disorders, heart problems, cancers etc. also trigger hair loss.
-It can also be caused by Diabetes and lupus.
-Radiation therapy also causes hair loss. However, once the treatment is stopped, the hair starts growing.
-Hormonal changes in the post-natal period also cause temporary hair loss.
-Exposure of hair to harmful chemical treatments such as bleaching, coloring, perming, straightening etc. can also cause hair fall. The hair tends to get damaged and breaks off if these products are used frequently.
-Rigorous brushing also causes the hair to break resulting in hair loss.
-Infections like ringworm affect the hair and skin of the scalp leading to hair loss. Treatment of the infection is essential to prevent this problem.
A number of medications, injections, serums, creams and ointments are available in the market these days to treat this condition. However, it is essential for you to consult a dermatologist prior to using any of these products in order to determine the exact cause for hair loss and rectify it accordingly. Surgical treatments for rectifying this condition include hair transplant and scalp reductions. These are expensive and can also be painful. They are accompanied with the risk of scarring and infection if proper care is not taken. It is strongly recommended that you approach only on board-certified dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons or plastic surgeons for any surgical procedure.
Prevention of Hair loss:
-Take a well balanced and nutritious diet rich in proteins, essential fatty acids vitamins and minerals.
-Do not use excessive heat or harsh chemicals to treat your hair.
-Style your hair when it is completely dry. Never brush wet or damp hair.
-Use mild shampoos for washing your hair.
-Everyone wants to have a well maintained, glossy mane. The secret is to dote on a well balanced and nutritious diet, drink loads of water and go low on harsh chemicals.
Proscar is a prescripted medication for Men only who have hair loss. check out this site for more information.
I work at a pharmacy and for 1 month your looking into $45.00CAD depending to which pharmacy you go to since they have different dispensing fees. I totally recommend this for men because it has a 26%-68% rate of success of hair growth!... I'm also a hairstylist and been cutting mens hair with hairloss and has taken proscar and worked!
So go ask your family doctor or dermatologist about this medication!!
If you dont want to go into precripted medications, there are shampoo and condtioner that helps prevent hairloss. product is called nioxin. check out their website nioxin.com
if not you can massage your scalp:
This can be done by using your own fingers or by asking someone else to give you a massage. Organize the massage in such a way that your fingers remain more or less in one place, but the scalp moves. With the small circular movements or back and forth motion you will be able to cover larger areas of your scalp. A fifteen minute scalp massage with oil twice a week before shampooing must form an essential part of your hair care program.

For Men Only: What Color Hair And Eye Combination Do You Prefer On A Woman?
what ever you are, look like a woman and not like a product straight off the assembly line. sometimes, a trip to the mall/nightclub brings forth a terrifying aldous huxley moment. my last crush was blue eyed, with chestnut-brown, wavy hair but that doesnt mean anything. last girl i went out with, light blonde.
literature plug: read brave new world, if you havent done so already. its kinda creepy -- maybe y'all will rethink wanting to look 100% the same.
To All You Hair Specialists. (:?
If I'M Growing Out My Hair, Can I Straighten It At Least Once A Week With 'Heat Protectant' Or 'Heat Tamer'?
Of course you can straighten it. That has nothing to do with growing out your hair. Sure, using heat may add a bit of damage but that's good if you are atleast using some heat protectants. You can straighten it 7 days a week, that is not going to change how fast your hair grows.
Camille- obviously I accounted for damage. I said that in the above. You can have breakage if you color, hilite, or use any heat. She may have some split ends or a few hairs break off but overall her hair will be fine esp if she is taking measures to protect it as best as she can. Do you know beauticians? I don't do this personally but most of them that I know fry their hair because they color and use heat on it constantly, but they have good products to improve the look of it. And once a month? We are not talking chemical relaxers here are we? We are talkin about using a hair straightener like a chi right?
BTW. I am good at doing hair but thanks for the insult. I'm guessing you are not a hair dresser at all.
How Much Would It Cost To Get Hair Plugs To Fill In A Very Slightly Receded Hairline?
My Hairline Started Receding When I Was About 18 And Eventually Stopped And Has Stayed The Same Ever Since. It'S Only About A Half Inch From The Original Line On Each Side. Wondering What It Would Entail To Get The Areas Filled In?
I Think Im Suffering From &Quot;Post Surgery Alopecia,&Quot; What Can I Do To Help My Hair Loss?
From what I read, hair loss caused by surgery is telogen effluvium which is what I have. Here's a background:
Telogen effluvium in short is when there is a shock or persistant stressor that causes your hair follicules to go into the resting stage so you notice a huge shed ((in your case, it was the surgery)). The bright side: it's a diffuse thinning so there are no bald spots but it will look thinner in some places than others, you won't go completely bald ((lose about 70% of your hair)) and even though that sounds like a lot, no one will notice but you. Also, it is completely reversable and not permanent. The hair loss usually starts about 3 months after the cause is removed. Once whatever is causing the fall out is present is out of your system, the hair will stop falling out and start the regrowth process ((with a surgery, it should be back to normal in about 1 year)).
1. Take a high does of Biotin ((5000 mcg)). Depending on the type of hair loss, this is said to kick start hair regrowth. It could take a while to work but it will help your hair grow back healthy. This is found in most vitamin sections and is pretty inexpensive.
2. Until the hair grows back, look for a line called Nioxin ((found in speciality stores such as Sally's, Trade Secret or Master Cuts or it can be ordered offline)). It won't make your hair regrow and it won't make it thicker but it will make you and others perceive it's thicker ((9/10 can see a difference)). The stuff in the stores will only make it worse. This line is a bit pricey but soooo worth it.
3. Don't stress about it. I know it's easier said than done but stress is another cause of TE.
Hope this helped! Good Luck!
