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.
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 Boalsburg Pennsylvania 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 Boalsburg PA that were performed at a young age.

Some Common Q & A’s
Stop My Baldness From Happening? ?
I Am 16 And My Father Along With His Father And My Mothers Father Are Bald. My Brother'S Hairline Is Receding And He Is 23. I'M Not Showing Signs Of Hairloss Yet, But It Seems Pretty Likely To Happen Within The Next 10 Years. I Am Wondering If There Is Anything I Could Do At This Age To Prevent It From Happening Or Delay It. I'Ve Seen Things About Nioxin And Ketoconazle Shampoos, And Would These Work? Any Suggestions Appreciated.
You can get a medication that helps prevent the destruction of the hair follicles on your head and hold back baldness eg Propecia/finestride. It does work for a lot of men. Talk to your doctor about it if you are really worried. There are also some spray on topical skin medications that help improve blood flow to the hair follicles on your head (eg Regain) and finally there are treatments you can get after you have started loosing hair to transplant hair follicles from the side of your head (which, for some reason, are not as susceptible to the same hormonal effects as the natural hairs on a person's head that are genetically susceptible to hair loss).
What Product Actually Restores Hair Loss?
I'M 19 Years Old And I Have A Widows Peak. I Got It From My Dad And It Seems To Be Getting Worse. Are There Any Products That Actually Work To Restore That Hair. Where Could I Go To Have Hair Put In Place If There Aren'T Any Products That Restore Hair Like That?
I suggest to buy nixon shampoo it really helps to restores hair loss for me is the best is not that expensive try it you would not be disappointed
How Much Does *** Laser Hair Removal Surgery Cost?
To get that area done, it depends on how much hair there is but can cost anywhere between $100-$300 per session (regular price) depending on where you decide to go get it done. Keep an eye open for special deals. With things like Groupon these days, you can actually get laser hair removal pretty cheap at some places. Please note that you'll need on average 6-8 sessions spread out over the course of several months to see desirable results.
Experiencing Extreme Hair Loss. Natural Ways To Reverse Hair Loss?
Toxic shampoos and other hair products are a principal cause of loss. They sicken and harm scalp, cause loss then block the hair ducts and thus prevent regrowth. Go to "Skin Deep Safety Database" and search "shampoos" and then "hair conditioners" and every other hair product you have used and you will see numerous ones were found to have severely toxic and harmful ingredients that cause loss. The Database identifies others that were found to have no harmful ingredients. You should use them.
I truly believe I escaped the fate of my grandfather, my father, my two brothers and a totally bald 18 year old nephew through this treatment. All are (or were) completely, or very nearly bald. So I feel the following treatment disproves the genetics theory. SEE the happy testimonial from treatment user on ANSWERS below ## and I have other testimonials
In my early twenties I suffered severe loss. Treatment stopped loss and forced new growth. Many years later I still have all my hair.
TREATMENT: Apply extra virgin olive to scalp (extra virgin coconut works just as well) then brush ALL of scalp ( not just where you have loss as whole of scalp will have been sickened and hair ducts blocked by toxic shampoos) vigorously and firmly using a palm held military brush with 1/2'' or 5/8'' long natural BOAR bristles.(Quite stiff bristles are best). See them on Amazon.
Brush very vigorously and strongly so you feel it stimulating/irritating scalp. Do 90 /110 strokes each session initially and as scalp adjusts build up to 300.. It will unplug the blocked hair ducts and it also forces new growth.
Some shedding and breakage may occur at first but will quickly stop as brushing makes hair better anchored and stronger. After about two to five weeks sparse tiny and new weak hairs will appear. Continued brushing will uproot them and then they will RE-APPEAR EVEN STRONGER but still be sparse but they will not be uprooted no matter how much you brush. Gradually, week by week, growth will be more dense. After brushing session leave oil on for 1 1/2 hours before removing with the safe shampoo
IMPORTANT: Only wash hair with a totally safe pure soap or shampoo with no toxins (no toxic coloring, no toxic fragrances, no toxic preservatives, no harmful additives of any kind). You can find them in GNC, Trader Joes, some Walmart Stores, Cost Plus, Wegmans, Earth Fare, and some natural & health foods stores.
P.S. I returned to England after a 15 years absence to find one completely bald and a near bald brother and a totally bald 18 year old nephew. They were totally surprised to see me with all my hair. Again it clearly shows that genetics has nothing to do with hair loss.

## Subject: HAIR LOSS! OMG!
"You may remember me, Mo Satrum, the guy with the constant questioning about the hair loss, well I've been doing it(the treatment) for 2 months now and it's working wonders! My hair loss increased the first few weeks but it gradually slowed down and my hair is gradually going back to normal as it were before. I was always told that hair loss was genetic and you could do nothing about it, but you've proved everyone wrong and even I had my doubts before starting your treatment but I cannot describe how much you've turned my life around! Thank you! I don't know where I would be without you"

What Is The Best Treatment For Losing Hair?
Everytime I Comb, I'm Losing Lots Of Hair. How Can Stop It? I Dont Wanna Go Bold. Help!
Hair loss to some degree is totally normal. However, if you're losing excessive amounts - it could be to do with a lack of nutrients in your body.
Your hair needs a lot of nutrients to grow and although I can't remember what those nutrients are right now, I do know that there are MANY products which supplement your body with them.
Here's one of the more popular ones which seems to work very well: "Provillus" http://www.regrowreport.com/provillus-re...
Take a look at that - if you're seeing a lot of hair loss then I would go use one of these discreet products first because it might just be a nutrient deficiency problem.
Do Hair Transplants Offer Good Results For Someone Who Has Lost A Great Deal Of Hair?
It depends on where the hair is lost from and how much you have left. The transplants usually come from the "back of the neck" hairline and are transplanted to areas where you are thin.
You need to see a specialist in that area to see if it is a good solution for you.
Hair Loss Solutions ???? (Men)?
Been Loosing Some Hair Recently And Recently Someone Said I'M Thinning On Top, So I Took A Picture And It Turns Out I Am, But Not Bad But Noticiable.
Any One In The Uk Reccomend A Really Good Hair Thickening Shampoo, Or Some Thing To Thicken It Up, I Cant Afford Propecia Or Things Like That.
I Tried Redken Boost & Head & Shoulders Volume But That Does Not Work.
It's good that you are taking the problem on time, I wish I had done the same thing, now I would have even better results but I can't complain...
Based on my experience I can tell you that a shampoo only does not work.
You are absolutely right that Propecia is way too expensive but there are some natural techniques that you can learn and can really help you.
They are very cheap, very effective and drug free so it's not bad at all.
Obviously for these reasons are not much advertised...;)

How To Regrow Lost Hair?
I'M 17 And I'Ve Lost Alot Of Hair From My Diet, But Its Stopped Falling Out & Now I'M Left With Then Hair.
Anyone Know Any At Home Remedies Or Products That Work On Regrowing Hair Lost.?
revita, growth and root stimulator cream pomade, I find this good tried sending a link but didn't work look it up you can buy it online. Also perfectil you can buy it in most chemists and works too. I use it to grow my hair length but it is used for regrowth.
A health diet does help improve hair growth over a period of time but on average with a healthy diet it will only grow a half an inch a month. If you want a fast effective way to grow it you need supplements like the ones mentioned above, you can also but tablets, lotions, conditioners and shampoos of different brands of the ones above in most salons. As a hairdresser I have just found these are the cheapest and they all do the same thing.
As for trimming your hair it will stop split ends breaking but as for making it grow that is a myth and is not true and basically a way for us to make money of the people who are actually stupid enough to believe it. I always believe in telling my clients the truth the only time you get regular trimming is if you are trying to keep a certain style in your hair. Your hair will grow just the same without trimming it as it will if you were regularly trimming it. And lets face it if you are constantly trimming your hair its not going to make it any longer logically you are just cutting off the amount that has just growing. Also some people just aren't meant to have thick or long hair it depends on your cycle and need these supplements to actually make the hair grow.
