Top Tips of 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 Troy Virginia 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
Laser Hair Removal Clinic And Instrument Help?
I Am Planning To Go For Laser Hair Removal Treatment For My Face. I Heard Good Reviews About American Laser Center But Unfortunately There Is'Nt One Near My Local Area. Has Anyone Taken Treatment At Dermacare Laser And Skin Clinic [Www.Dermacareusa.Com]. Is It A Good Clinic For Getting The Treatment? Also, I Am An Asian With Brown Complexion And Dark Hair. What Specific Instrument Or Therapy Would Be Best For My Skin Type? Any Suggestion Is Highly Appreciated. Thank You All Very Much For The Help.
Typically most laser hair reduction is done with 810nm or 1064nm wavelength lasers. Generally dark hair is easier to reduce than light hair. In terms of complexion, most safety issues about laser hair removal deals with the Fitzpatrick Type of the skin being treated. You are most likely a type IV or V. Most of the newer lasers are rated as being safe for all skin types. IPL devices are generally not safe for darker skin types.
When you get your evaluation for your procedure, you should ask your technician about safety for your skin type and about comfort issues during the procedure. They should be able to address these issues. If not, shop elsewhere.
Men S Hair: Hair Style Help?
Hello All. I Wish To Grow My Hair Out And Style It In A Certain Fashion, Something Very Similar To The Links Posted Below:
I Have Never Grown My Hair Out To A Length Such As This. Questions:
A Current Photo Of Me And My Hairstyle: Http://Imgur.Com/Ssvkkvp
1. How Long Will It Take My Hair To Grow Out To The Length In The Linked Photos?
2. Anything I Can Do To Make My Hair Grow Faster?
3. How Do I Keep My Hair Looking Nice Until I'M Ready To Comb It Down Into The Preferred Style?
Thanks In Advance To Anyone Who Decided To Help Me.
1. on average, hair grows about 1/2 of an inch per month (or 1" within 2 months). in your case, you'll have to wait a few months worth to get a few inches out.
2. faster growth? try these methods (albeit it seems the target is toward women, it should just as easily apply with mens hair too, give these ways a shot if you wish):
3. be looking nice, you mean stylized + not messy or something? you can get trims every now and then, just to *keep* or *maintain* a nice look/hairstyle as you grow it out. yes, that may require a slight cutting of the hair, but it's worth it + helps give your hair a good look/hairstyle all the while it grows out to the length you want it at.
so while it's growing, gradually get trims or quick cuts of your hair to make it appear like it's somewhat at that style, but still needs to grow out more.
They Have Deals To Fly To Argentina From The Usa And Get Hair Plugs For $5000 Including Flight?
Is This A Good Idea, Do Hair Plugs Look Natural And Is That A Good Price
I would be weary of these so called good deals. Why are they offering them? Could it because they need to money? There have been a lot of people who have taken advantage of such offers with poor results. Mostly, they had to have the procedure redone. It's better if you save up the money to have it done right the first time.
So I Cut My Hair A While Ago And I Really Regret It Now That It'S Getting Closer To College. I Have Been Taking Biotin Extra Strength, Been Using Garnier Damage Repair Shampoo And Argon Moroccan Oil And It'S Been Doing Great, Downside Is The Biotin Is Causing Me To Break Out Insanely. To The Point Where I Just Don'T Want To Take It Anymore, I Rarely Breakout Otherwise. Does Anyone Know Of Any Remedies Or Any Product That Helps Them With Hair Growth? I'D Really Appreciate It! (:
Garnier damage repair doesn't repair your hair. Nothing can actually. You will have to cut off the damage. It just lies on the bottle to get you to buy it. Make sure that the Moroccan Oil is the only ingredient. Unless all of the other ingredients are only either water or other natural oils. Make sure there are no silicones, alcohols, and sulfates because they dry out your hair. Silicones coat your hair and prevents moisture from getting in,and can only be removed with sulfates. Sulfates, of course dry out your hair. Instead of taking biotin, take 800 mcg of Folic Acid. It doesn't break you out and helps your hair grow.
Oils you can use:
peppermint oil penetrates the scalp and stimulates the hair follicle
lavender oil - This sweet smelling product has antibacterial properties that keep the scalp clean and the pores open. It helps to reduce issues that can prevent hair from growing like excessive dandruff.
rosemary oil - Hailed as one of the most effective oils in hair growth, rosemary oil is known for its scalp stimulating properties. It gets the blood circulating in your scalp, which also assists with thinning edges and balding spots.
stinging nettle - This herb does double duty. Allowing stinging nettle oil to sit in your hair overnight can help combat hair loss and also give your curls a boost in the growth department. The nutrients help regenerate the hair and prevent the overproduction of DHT, a hormone that contribute to hair loss.
jamaican black castor oil - This thickens and promotes hair growth.
aloe vera - This mega hair growth stimulant is jam-packed with more than 20 minerals and an abundance of vitamins like A, C, and E (just to name a few). It helps hair grow by reducing the overproduction of sebum -- an oily substance that your scalp secretes. Excessive sebum can slow hair growth by clogging your pores. Because it is an antibacterial, aloe vera works by zapping that oily build-up and allowing your pores to breathe.
sage oil - This oil increases blood circulation to your hair follicle. It also aids in controlling excessive sebum from the scalp.
onion juice - The smell might be less than pleasant to some (or most) but this DIY treatment has been used for ages and for a good reason -- it works! Thanks to its high sulfur content, it is incredibly effective in stimulating and increasing your blood circulation.
apple cider vinegar - Product build-up, dirt, and grime all contribute to disrupting your scalp’s natural pH levels and effecting growth. Restore balance and stimulate hair growth with an ACV rinse following your shampoo. It will leave your hair soft and give it shine.
eggs - Eggs are full of all of the major essential vitamins and minerals (except for C) including zinc, iron and selenium.
Something else that helps hair growth is doing the Inversion Method. You basically hold your head upside down for 4 minutes for 7 days (1 week straight) out of the month. (you can google it for more details). It's really simple and easy and effective. You should get 1 - 4 inches of growth in 1 week by doing this alone. (I get 2 inches when I do the Inversion Method.)
You can also try eating/taking 800 mcg of Folic Acid per day. It's a B- Vitamin and helps stimulate hair growth and fights against hair loss.
Drink a lot of water every day – 64 oz or at least half of your body weight in ounces.
Do protective hairstyles, like twists, buns, and braids. (but make sure they are not too tight because if they are, they will cause your edges to break off and hairline recede - it happened to me before.)
Only trim your hair when you have split or dead ends. There is no reason to cut of healthy ends.
Keep your hair moisturized. Something that can help you properly moisturize your hair is knowing your hair porosity – high, low or medium-. Deep condition every once and a while or once a week.
Do not wash your hair everyday. Do not over-wash or under-wash your hair.
Try to use natural or organic products. When you wash your hair, rinse your shampoo with lukewarm water (which opens the cuticle to let out dirt and other bad stuff and so he dirt and bad stuff won't be locked in your hair if you rinse with cold water. This will also leave your cuticle open to let your conditioner to soak into your hair, but if you're not going to use a conditioner after, rinse with cold water to close the cuticle ) and rinse conditioner with cold water, because the cold water will close the cuticle. Before you rinse out your conditioner, put a shower cap over your head/hair and let it set for 3- 10 minutes. This will allow your hair to soak up the conditioner.
If you have naturally curly hair, follow the curly girl method. Use sulfate free shampoo or no shampoo at all. Co- wash (wash only with conditioner). Use sulfate free, silicone free, alcohol free, detergent free, and free of anything that is drying and harsh on the hair. Do not straighten or blow dry your hair. It will damage your hair over time and change your porosity level. If you do, only do it 1 - 2 times a year and use a heat protectant .And the order in which you apply products does matter. When daily moisturizing, first spritz your hair with lukewarm water (so your cuticle will open up and take in the good stuff), apply your moisturizer/leave in conditioner, then seal with an oil or butter. When shampooing, apply a bit of oil to hair before you shampoo so your hair doesn't get totally stripped from the shampoo. Then shampoo your roots/scalp and when you rinse you shampoo out, it will travel to the ends and clean the rest of your hair.
Does Anyone Know Of A Hair Regrowth Technique That Does Not Require Lifelong Use?
For Example, Rogaine Can Regrow Hair But If You Stop Taking It, The Thinning And Balding Will Return. I'M Looking For Something, If It Exists, That Can Get Me To The Point I Want To Reach And Then Allow Me To Stop. As Long As It'S Not Surgery Or Anything Like That, I'M Up For It. If It'S A Traditional Medicine, Something Herbal In Nature Or Something Else, That'S Just Fine.
Any Answers Would Be Appreciated.
Here a few simple home remedies which can be tried at home to control hair fall.

Solutions For Female Hair Loss?
I Am 19 Years Old, And My Hair Is Thinning So Much! It Sometimes Even Looks Like There Are Bald Spots! Been To 8 Doctors, Not Very Helpful, Tried Using Rogain For Women But It Gave Me Headaches. It Is Making Me Feel Very Self Conscious! It Is Difficult For Me To Wear My Hair Down. And Up! I Read That It Should Be Happing To Menopausal Women Whenever I Search Something, But That Is Not What It Is! I Am Getting Very Desperate, And Wondering If Anyone Tried Or Knows Something Other Than To Shave Head))) Is There Anything That Is Known To Work Perhaps, Or Know A Solution, Or Anything!? Hehe, Another Option Is A Wig I Suppose))) But They Are Expensive...))))) Thanks In Advance
what did those 8 doctors say??
Did they do any tests???
Instead of using Rogaine and stuff, try to find out the root cause. This can happen if you have thyroid disease, some scalp issues, side effects of any drugs that you are taking, etc
Blood test might reveal what it is. I do not have any medical knowledge and think the doctors can find out what it is.

Loestrin 24 And Hair Loss?
My Midwife Prescribed Me The Birth Control Pill Loestrin 24 About 8 Weeks After My Baby'S Birth. I'Ve Taken This Pill Consistently For About 2 Months Now And Within The Last Month I Started To Notice That Whenever I Took A Shower I Was Losing A Significant Amount Of Hair, Especially When I Washed It. I'M Not Talking Gobs Or Hair Or Losing Hair To The Point Of Bald Spots, But It Has Made My Hair Much, Much Thinner. The Amount Of Hair Loss Reminds Me Of The First Few Months Of My Pregnancy, When I Was Also Losing Hair Similarly. This Makes Me Think There Is Some Kind Of Hormonal Connection. Have Any Other Ladies On This Bc Experienced This? Also, If You Have Taken Loestrin 24, What'S Your Overall Opinion On This Pill? I'M Also Noticing Some Breakthrough Bleeding And Other Side Effects That Might Make Me Consider Switching Pills. Any Suggestions?
Hair loss is not a known effect of Loestrin; however, that does not mean it isn't an ideosyncratic reaction for you. If you lost hair during pregnancy, when your hormone levels are high, it is totally possible that the birth control hormones are giving you the same results.
I am concerned about the delay in the hair loss though. If it was related to the loestrin, it should have started within two weeks of beginning the birth control rather than just recently. It might be a good idea to see a doctor to find out if there is a medical basis for your hair loss. Maybe you have a thyroid issue...which is a common cause of hair loss in females. Please see your doctor regarding the hair loss to rule out all possible causes.
You must also consider other things:
1. are you on any other medications
2. have any of these medications been prescribed recently...shortly before the hair loss started
3. have you experienced a life change recently that has caused you extreme stress
If you can answer no to any of the above questions and your doctor visit produces no answers, then I suggest you ask your midwife to switch your birth control to another form. After all, it is worth a try to see if it ends your hair loss. If you are on any other medications, feel free to email me with their names and I can tell you if any of them cause hair loss.
