Who Is Lying to Us 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.
Ruthless Hair Loss Treatment Strategies Exploited
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.

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 West Lafayette Indiana 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.

Some Common Q & A’s
A Good Hair Transplant Surgeon In Toronto?
I'M Thinking Of Getting A Hair Transplant To Help Stop The Signs Of Male Pattern Baldness.
Does Anyone Know A Good Hair Transplant Surgeon In Toronto? Has Anyone Ever Done It Themselves? Does It Work? Is It Really Expensive? I'M Looking For Any Feedback Or Experience And Advice That Anyone Who Has Been Through, Is Going Through Or Is Close To Someone With Mpb.
Thanks So Much In Advance.
I went to Dr Cam Simmons at Toronto first. However, since I do not have a well healed job myself, I could not afford the rates.
Someone in his staff suggested that they were giving great results at a quarter of the price in India at Darling Buds hair Transplant center of Dr Tejinder Bhatti, a leading name in Asia.
You can try either depending on how deep your pockets are.
Wish you the very best of luck and a head full of hair.
Who Is The Best Hair Transplant Surgeon In India?
Hair Transplantation surgery is very safe nowadays. My cousin got her breast reduction, tummy tuck and facelift surgery in India by the company called Forerunners Healthcare .The Price for the surgery she paid in India was very less. She paid 30% of the cost she was quoted in America.
Forerunners Healthcare is very famous in India. They arrange cosmetic and plastic surgery for foreigners in India. I read a lot about them in the Newspapers and about their patient stories. They arrange financing for USA, Canadian, UK and other international patients who plan to have surgery abroad for low price, as the breast reduction, tummy tuck, facelift and other cosmetic surgery is not covered by insurance. They also have photos pasted of their International patients. You can checkout their website. There are huge cost savings. As a doctor I personally believe that surgery can be easily handled in India, as the quality of healthcare available In India is simply best in the world. The surgeons are USA/UK trained and facilities are 5 star.
Hope this helps.
Is It Possible To Grow My(Male) Hair Out After A Hair Transplant ?
Growing It As Long As Say 6-10 Inches Of Hair... Will This Work ?
The transplanted hair will grow to the same terminal length it would grow in the area it was harvested. If scalp hair not subject to androgenic alopecia was harvested and transplanted, then yes it should grow to 6-10 inches, actually to a terminal length of at least around 24 inches if not cut. A hair grows for four to seven years to a terminal length, whether cut or not, falls out and is replaced by a fresh hair. When hair is thinning due to androgenic alopecia, the terminal lengths become progressively shorter and the hairs become finer until they resemble nearly invisible vellus hairs. The average rate of hair growth is 1/2" per month.
Anyone Have A Hair Transplant? How Long Did It Take For The New Hair To Fully Grow In?
I had a Bosley hair transplant back in July and I'm already overly impressed by the results. It took about 3 months for the first new hairs to sprout up and now 5 months after the procedure I am experiencing significant hair re-growth. You can check out my blog at BattleAgainstBald.com. In addition to pictures and video of my personal experience with a Bosley procedure I provide a plethora of information on hair loss and other methods for correcting baldness.
Best of luck in your battle!
Bosley Hair Transplant Surgery?
What Exactly Makes It &Quot;Surgeical&Quot;? What Do They Do?
Also, What Does Bosley Do If You Pick Non-Surgeical?
There are several steps to the whole Bosley process. It usually begins by calling their toll-free number and meeting with one of their consultants. They have offices all over the United States. It's important to know that these consultants are usually not doctors. They are sales people/consultants.
When you meet with them, you'll usually go to a discreet office building. (There are no bold signs anywhere on the building that says "Bosley", so you don't have to worry about other people knowing what you're up to.)
They start by taking photographs of your head, and then they sit down and show you what they see. They ask you questions about your medical history, (which gets forwarded to the physicians, if you should decided to move on to the next step) and they show you charts and diagrams explaining the various stages of hair loss. They ask you where you feel you fit into those charts. Then they talk about your options, what you hope to accomplish, and they tell you what they feel would be the kind of results you can reasonably expect. They talk about medications such as Rogain and propreca, which is used to try to hold onto, and maintain the hair that you currently have (particularly in the back) whether or not this would be an option. They talk about transplant surgery, how it works, where the donor hair comes from, and how it gets moved. They also talk about what the costs are, and go over different ways to finance it.
The consultation is very low key. There is no pressure, and no hype. It's simply information. These guys are very personable, meaning they have the ability to laugh or cry right along with you. They talk with you one-on-one, as if you are talking to a best friend. I've met with two consultants so far. Both of them were former Bosley patients. (Both had hair restoration done) I really liked the fact that I was speaking with a person who has actually been there, done that. They understand the pain and frustration of hairloss. I could see for myself, the results of someone who's been where I am, and has decided to do something about it.
The next step, if it's determined that restoration surgery would be the best option (and surgery isn't always the best option) is to schedule an appointment to actually meet with one of their physicians. They have a handful of surgical centers. You must go to one of them, and be seen by an actual physician. If they make the determination that restoration is the best option, then they arrange for surgery (usually the following morning). Surgery lasts about 4 to 6 hours, approximately, and you go back home that evening.
I am scheduled to have mine in a few weeks, pending the outcome of meeting with the physician.
If you go to Youtube, and do a search for Bosley, check out the very detailed clips by someone named Seth. I think they're titled "Battle Of The Bald". Anyway, these clips show an entire consultation, both with the counselors, and later the physician, and also some of the surgical procedure. It's very informative, definitely worth watching, to help make an informed decision.
Male 19 Yo Hair Loss Treatment?
Hi, I Am One Of Those Freak Men That Actually Care About How They Look. My Hair Line Is Receding And The Top Of My Head Is Thinning.
What Treatments Have You Done That Worked?
Also If You Could Throw In A Swear Word Slept Wrong At The End Of Your Answer It Would Be Appropriated. Otherwise There'S No Way For Me To Know If You'Re Just Advertising A Product. Ex. Bawlz, Azzwhole, Dihks, Etc.
Hair loss is not only experienced by adults. Even children can also experience hair loss. As quoted from children.webmd.com, mostly toddlers aged 26 months upwards prone to hair loss.There are various causes of hair loss in children, among them:
Tinea capitis is a fungal infection that occurs. This infection will cause hair loss in children. On the scalp fungus-infected children will appear small spots black. The infection is contagious, so you must ensure that hats, combs, pillows, and hair clasps children not be used interchangeably with other people. To cure a yeast infection causes of hair loss, use an antifungal shampoo containing selenium sulfide or ketoconazole.
Hair loss is not contagious is caused by the immune system that attack the root of the child's hair. Approximately 25 percent of children who experience hair loss due to alopecia areata will have spotted fingers. There is no specific treatment that can be done to overcome the loss due to Alopecia areata. Applying a cream containing corticosteroids may be sufficient to help cope with hair loss in children.
Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is not in a state of active and produce little thyroid hormone. Diagnoses whether children experiencing hair loss due to hypothyroidism can only be done through a blood test and the scanning of the thyroid gland.
What Options Are Available To Fix Hair Loss For Older Women?
I Am A 50Yr Old Women And I Am Losing Hair In A Few Spots In My Head And I Wanted To Know What Are Some Great Products Or Treatments Available To Help Me With New Growth In Those Affected Areas. I Am Trying To Avoid Wigs.
Find the 'cause' before you can find the solution, then eliminate them. Your hair will improve. Remember, whatever it was that caused them to fall out in the first place, it took months even years to get in your system, it will takes years to flush them down, so don't expect miracles overnight.
So many reasons for hair loss:
Supplements, steroids, hereditary, hair dyes perming, straightening, diet, having babies (yes I read once it happened to her), stress, medications with testosterone, certain antidepressants, menopause, anti-acne, and too much of everything. Add to that the 7,000 + toxic found in your home, plus pollution found outdoors. Your hair is crying for help!
Ex. of relaxed hair. http://monicabtheorganicstylist.wordpres...
When your hair is crying for help, that's when it's too late to do anything about it, and hair products can not reverse the problem.
They also say you normally lose 100-200 hair a day, but I don't. I lose about 7-8 every time I brush it, so that's about 100 per week, give or take.About 23-25 if I shampooed/brush my hair, which is every 4th day.
The majority of hair problems here are from girls in their 30s, asking how to care for their damaged hair, what product to make their hair grow, why their hair falls out, and why their shampoo or conditioner don't work. Women between 60-80 have that same problem, but it took them years to get there. And those same 30 & under girls are giving advice here? Now, I'm answering more problems re: hair fall or hair not growing from girls under 15. Go figure!
Even the cheapest shampoo can do magic for your hair, so it must be what you're doing AFTER you wash it. Shampoos and vitamins might make your hair look and feel healthier, but they won’t put more hairs on your head.
According Dr. Melissa Piliang, a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic. Americans spent an estimated $176 million on hair loss products last year, and chances are some of that money was not well spent. Don’t let charming salon owners, seductive ads or fancy gimmicks convince you otherwise.
I know hair. I am in my early 60's, and I've been having menopause, and I am not experimenting hair loss, for those who said I don't know what I'm talking about when it comes to hair. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy long hair. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing. What you see on my profile is what I have now. It's as thick as when I'm in my teens.
Stress, seldom. I went through stress when both parents died, plus sister taking me to court & selling the house, on my own and still no hair loss here!

year ago my husband suffered from hair loss too and he started trying everything you can imagine to stop his hair loss. the things that really worked for him 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 used 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 him!
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
not only my and my husband`s own personal experience
Foreskin Transplant, Please Help?
How Would I Be Able To Find & Contact (Preferably Online) A Surgeon Who Might Be Willing To Attempt An Unusual Type Of Transplant Surgery That Maybe Has Not Been Done Before? Such As That Person Who Had That 'World'S First Face Transplant' A Year Or Two Back. It'S A Foreskin Transplant I'M Talking About. I'M Very Sure It Hasn'T Been Done Before...I Have No Foreskin Because I Was Circumcised At Birth And I Need To Have One Transplanted Onto Me.
Please Don'T Waste An Answer Telling Me Things Like &Quot;There Is No Way&Quot; Or &Quot;It'S Impossible&Quot; Or &Quot;Just Look In The Yellow Pages&Quot;, Or To Let Me Know About How Transplants Are Very Risky And Dangerous And Should Only Be For The Most Severe Of Cases Where Life-Threatening Situations Are Involved And That I Would Need To Take Immunosuppressant Drugs For The Rest Of My Life. Yes, Thank You, I Know All That Already. Again, *Please* No Negative Comments Telling Me About How It Can'T Be Done. I'M Determined To Try Whether People Tell Me It'S Impossible Or Not. Just Please Help Me If You Know Any Way I Might Be Able To Find Someone Willing.
Please Only Be Bothered Answering If You Know Of A Real Place Or Listing Online I Might Look, Or Better Yet, If You Actually Know Of A Surgeon Who Might Be Willing To Try Something On Me. Not Reconstruction. I Know That'S Possible. Also I Could Do Non-Surgical Restoration. None Of Those Things Would Give Me The Full Feeling Of A Really Intact Penis As If I Had Never Been Circumcised. Only Having A Transplant Of An Actual Foreskin From Another Person Would. I Want That. Thank You.
Being Circumcised Is Hell. I Can'T Stand It Anymore, I Just Can'T! I Can'T, I Can'T, I Cannot! Please, I Need To Get A Transplant From Someone Else Who Still Has A Foreskin But Wants To Get It Cut Off....Don'T Say They Can'T Do That, I Know There Are Doctors Who Can....Plastic Surgeons Have Done More Complicated Surgeries Than That Before. I Don'T Care If I Might Lose My Entire Penis, I Don'T Care If I Might Die, I Can'T Live This Anymore, Being Circumcised Is Hell!!!!! Please Somebody Help Me!
Like all plastic surgery, Surgical Foreskin Restoration involves the use of skin grafts. The problem with skin grafts is that skin color, concentration of hair, and skin thickness varies all over our bodies. It is extremely difficult to graft skin onto the penis shaft and have it look even remotely natural in terms of hair, color, and thickness.
The surgery itself is a very risky procedure, being complicated and expensive.
There are however manual ways of restoring your foreskin, and here's a website with some FAQs:
