Ensure you get enough Omega-3 fatty acids. These fats keep hair healthy and have a role in preventing hair from becoming dry and brittle. They are found in the cells that line your scalp, and also help keep your hair and scalp hydrated. They are important fats that your body cannot make itself, but have to be obtained through your diet.
Are you going to use it directly on you face and chest? It will help, but a cheaper alternative would be regular minoxidil. You don’t need DHT blocking properties in minoxidil to grow facial and chest hair.
Eat well. “Focus on a diet rich in essential vitamins, minerals, proteins and beneficial fats,” Dubsky says. “These nutrients stimulate hair follicles to promote a healthier scalp and ultimately, stronger hair.”
Regular intake of coconut can transform your hair and I have seen this happen: one of my friends started taking coconut oil and coconut meat in her diet and in one year her hair went from being dull and dry to shiny and gorgeous looking. Coconut oil also supports your immune system and has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
They can easily reach your hair scalp and cell membranes deep into your scalp. This provides nourishment to follicles which not only prevent hair loss but promote its growth. Secondly, they also make your hair more elastic so that they do not break easily. They also cure dry itchy skin, thus preventing dandruff.
Dr. Piliang said she expects Latisse’s results to be less striking on the head than on the lashes because the drug works by shifting more hair from the resting phase to the growing phase. For lashes, only about 30 percent of the hair is in the growing phase at any given time, she said, but on the scalp, that figure is 80 or 90 percent.
You can get away with using it only where your hair has receded, but I would apply it all over my scalp to help prevent further recession. If you experience side effects talk to your doctor. But keep in mind they may well be just psychological.
For hair loss due to illness (such as fever), radiation therapy, medicine use, or other causes, no treatment is needed. Hair usually grows back when the illness ends or the therapy is finished. You may want to wear a wig, hat, or other covering until the hair grows back.
“There’s people selling pills and creams and lotions and whatever else, and sometimes you can’t even trust what ingredients they have in there,” he warned us when we spoke to him over the phone. Key takeaway: The hair loss industry is crazy dishonest, so we eliminated any treatments (especially homeopathic methods) that aren’t based in concrete, peer-reviewed science.
The tests: Your dermatologist will examine the pattern of hair loss to determine if it’s hereditary and may order blood work to rule out other causes, Dr. Jakubowicz says. A biopsy of your scalp is sometimes done to see if the hair follicles have been replaced with miniaturized follicles, a surefire sign of hereditary hair loss.
All at once. If you are sure it’s MPB, start finasteride (and Nizoral) now and move on. Minoxidil will just delay the inevitable, while fin will potentially stop (or even reverse in some cases) the hair loss. The cure for baldness is to start treatment early. The chances for real sides are non-existent.
Prefer mild shampoo and conditioner over any other type; it is gentler on your hair and will result in better overall condition. Equally, avoid harsh soaps, especially those containing deodorant, as these harm the scalp.
The second member of ‘The big three’ and another extremely effective FDA approved hair loss treatment is minoxidil. Minoxidil was originally an oral medication for high blood pressure, after a while, however, patients started reporting hair growth everywhere on their body, and so the minoxidil topical solution for treating hair loss was born.
Everyone experiences a little bit of hair loss in the form of stray hairs falling here or there (especially if you have long hair), but if there is a large amount of hair falling out, that’s not normal. You could be malnourished or could have some medical issue.
When ringworm affects the scalp, the fungus triggers a distinct pattern of hair loss – itchy, round bald patches. Bald areas can appear scaly and red. Ringworm of the scalp is treated with antifungal treatments. The fungus is easily spread by direct contact so family members should also be checked for symptoms.
This is an effective method for those women who are experiencing hair loss post menopause. Although, a bit controversial, this treatment is quite effective in treating the condition. It involves an intake of progesterone and estrogen through pills, patches, and creams. It also helps in easing up other post-menopausal symptoms. It is most often prescribed for pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia.
Angela Ledford, 34, a beauty blogger, had used the Rogaine men’s formulation, after hair extensions, M.A.C. Black Carbon eye shadow, Joan Rivers hair fill-in powder and supplements all failed to hide her thinning jet-black hair. (The men’s product was not F.D.A.-approved for women, but that didn’t stop women from buying it.)
Stress can exacerbate genetic hair loss since the adrenal or stress glands secrete male hormones into the body, says Lyons. Polycystic ovaries can also accelerate the condition, and genetic hair loss will worsen in menopause unless treated as oestrogen levels drop.
Spikenard oil is known for promoting the growth of hair and slowing down the graying process of graying. A 2011 animal study found that spikenard oil showed positive effects on hair growth activity. When using spikenard extract, there was a 30 percent reduction in the time it look for the hair to grow back on the tested rats, which makes it promising for human use. (5)
And don’t bother reading those types of articles, they will just get in your head and make you experience side effects psychologically. If finasteride would be so detrimental to your health, it wouldn’t be available to the general public. There are millions of men taking it with no side effects who just go on about their lives, without reading paranoid articles on online forums.

An expert panel of dermatologists at Merck & Co. found that it takes at least three months to slow down hair loss, six months to grow new hair, and as long as 12 months to verify whether the treatment is effective for you.
But while this holds true for those men, let’s not forget the other side of the coin, men who just don’t look very attractive when they go bald. If you consider yourself a part of this group, then you might want to consider some sort of treatment, particularly if you are still in your younger years.

Some women may notice their hair seems fuller during pregnancy. That’s thanks to high levels of hormones that keep resting hairs from falling out as they normally would. Alas, the reprieve is short-lived. After childbirth, when hormone levels return to normal, those strands fall out quickly. This can mean a surprising amount of hair loss at one time. The hair usually returns to normal by the time your baby reaches her first birthday.
Central centrifugal cicatricial (scarring) alopecia: This type of hair loss occurs most often in women of African descent. It begins in the center of the scalp. As it progresses, the hair loss radiates out from the center of the scalp. The affected scalp becomes smooth and shiny. The hair loss can be very slow or rapid. When hair loss occurs quickly, the person may have tingling, burning, pain, or itching on the scalp. Treatment may help the hair re-grow if scarring has not occurred.
Side effects, which are most often of a sexual nature, like loss of libido and erectile dysfunction, affect only a very small percentage of patients. And more often than not, they are psychological. The chances of you experiencing real side effects are next to impossible.
Pumpkin, rosemary, and coconut oils all act as nectar to the scalp. In one study, researchers gave men with hair loss 400 mg per day of pumpkin seed oil or a placebo for 24 weeks. Those who took the pumpkin seed oil experienced a 40% increase in hair growth.
We obsess about our hair. We moan, cry and brag about our hair; but one way or another, we are completely freaked out when we think something is messing with our mane. Depending on the style and era, hair is used to allure or express power and virility, or status. Plays, books, and movies have been penned about it, and scientists study it like the plague. Whatever your relationship to your hair, it is an indomitable force of self-consciousness and social distraction.
All three of these reasons are often given out to explain hair loss, but they are far from being true. More often than not, these myths are generated by companies that want to sell an ineffective hair growth product, or by well-meaning older generations and/or misinformed individuals. We now know much more about what causes hair thinning, and it often has nothing to do with what we suspect.
Female pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia in women) is characterized by thinning on the top or the center of the head. Female hair loss is generally due to high levels of stress, hormone imbalance, thyroid conditions or toxic exposure. Women are actually most likely to suffer from hair loss due to hormones. Think pregnancy, menopause, birth control pills and other hormonal changes that women so commonly go through. Having polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is another hormonally related health problem that can contribute to hair loss from the scalp but unwanted hair growth in undesirable places.

There are a wide range of conditions that can bring on hair loss, with some of the most common being pregnancy, thyroid disorders, and anemia. Others include autoimmune diseases, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and skin conditions such as psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis, Rogers says.
