Because they are not usually associated with an increased loss rate, male-pattern and female-pattern hair loss do not generally require testing. If hair loss occurs in a young man with no family history, drug use could be the cause.

Eggs are packed with a B vitamin called biotin, which helps hair grow and strengthens brittle fingernails. Not having enough of this vitamin can lead to hair loss. Other good sources of biotin: almonds, avocados and salmon.
Ask for a shorter, volumizing cut. Short cuts are gentler on thin hair. If you allow your hair to grow out long, it will start to separate in thin locks and expose regions of the scalp. Instead, go for a shorter length, while requesting layers. Many stylists are familiar with hairstyles for thinning hair, so don’t be afraid to have an open dialogue.
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.
Hey, Jox. I don’t believe so. In terms of blocking DHT, Nizoral is not as strong as Finasteride. And minoxidil just helps regrow hair, it does not do anything about the DHT. I suggest you take finasteride or some other potent hair loss treatment like RU, after transplantation.
Thanks, Ed. I’m afraid if you want to keep your regrown hair you have to use these treatments indefinitely. Otherwise, you’ll lose all your “gains” and be back to the point as if you had never used them. It’s a commitment.

None of these need be life-threatening, nor does hair loss usually follow them. (Moreover, it can happen after one pregnancy, but not the next.) But when the hair falls out, it’s all over the place — covering the pillow, clogging the drain, and so forth. Paradoxically, the more dramatic the hair loss, the better the prognosis, because when the body gets back into normal rhythm, most if not all of that hair comes back; these people need no special treatment. Normal shampooing can continue, because this only loosens hairs that were going to come out anyway.

Male and female pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss and is genetic, Dr. Krejci-Manwaring says. It’s a complete myth that it all comes from your mother’s side, so everyone can stop blaming their mother for their hair problems! Hereditary baldness affects up to 80% of men and 50% of women, and is usually caused by many other factors.
Most hair loss is not associated with systemic or internal disease, nor is poor diet a frequent factor. Hair may simply thin as a result of predetermined genetic factors and the overall aging process. Many men and women may notice mild physiologic thinning of hair starting in their 30s and 40s. Life vicissitudes, including illness, emotional trauma, protein deprivation (during strict dieting), and hormonal changes like those in pregnancy, puberty, and menopause may cause hair loss.
When a patient comes in with concerns about hair loss, there is a combination of ways to make a diagnosis, Rogers says. Preliminary blood work is usually taken to make sure the thyroid gland or an autoimmune disease isn’t the culprit.
Amla contains anti-oxidants, Vitamins, minerals and amino acids which strengthen hair follicles. It acts as a good conditioner and effective to treat dandruff. It stimulates hair growth and prevents premature graying of hair.
It is mostly used as a natural hair colour or conditioner but henna has properties that can strengthen your hair from the root. If you combine it with other ingredients, it makes for a better hair pack.
Aloe vera contains enzymes that directly promote healthy hair growth. Applying Aloe vera juice or gel on your scalp along with having one teaspoon of Aloe vera on an empty stomach, can induce healthy hair growth. Aloe vera removes the dead cells from your scalp that can clog the roots in your hair. It has antimicrobial and ant-inflammatory properties that fight against the bacteria to fend off the diseases and keep the scalp cool. Aloe Vera also helps in restoring scalp’s pH balance, promotes the growth of healthy hair.
Coloring, perming, and conditioning the hair do not usually cause hair loss. Burns or severe processing may cause hair loss and breakage. Styles that pull tight may cause some loss, but hair coloring and chemicals usually don’t.
A: False. You’re balding because your hair follicles are more sensitive in places to the DHT on your head. If high levels of testosterone caused it, then you’d experience hair loss all over your body as well.
Scalp reduction is to cut balding scalp out and suture the remaining skin together to reduce the bald area, Kaufman says. After several of these, you have a smaller area to transplant. But you leave a scar that is visible and needs to be transplanted into to be invisible.
Consult a hair transplant surgeon. The process of transplanting hair involves removing healthy hair follicles from areas on your scalp where your hair is thick, and transplanting those into areas where the hair is thinning, or where hair loss is most evident.
A common condition, alopecia areata usually starts as a single quarter-sized circle of perfectly smooth bald skin. These patches usually regrow in three to six months without treatment. Sometimes, white hair temporarily regrows and then becomes dark. The most extensive form is called alopecia totalis, in which the entire scalp goes bald. It’s important to emphasize that patients who have localized hair loss generally don’t go on to lose hair all over the scalp. Alopecia areata can affect hair on other parts of the body, too (for example, the beard or eyebrows).
If your hair loss is acute and you think you take perfect diet then also are unable to prevent hair loss, some herbs may help you to overcome your problem. Some Indian as well as Native American herbs can prove to be good remedies for hair loss.
Crash Dieting can be very dangerous because it throws your body’s hormones out of balance if your thyroid gland is not functioning properly, as often happens when you drastically lose or gain weight. When your hormones fall out of balance, your testosterone can easily change to dihydrotestosterone, thereby killing follicle cells. In other words, diet in healthy ways.
Androgenetic alopecia – in women, hair generally thins in the top, frontal area, just behind the hair line, but stays thick at the back. An enzyme causes conversion of the male sex hormone testosterone to another hormone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), causing the hair follicles to produce thinner hair until they stop.
“I’m not worried I’m going to sprout a mustache anymore,” Ms. Ledford said of her switch to the women’s product, which doesn’t drip down the face. Recently she watched a video blog of herself in which she looked down and was pleased to note baby hairs sprouting “all over my scalp,” she said.
If hair loss is caused by an illness, treatment of the illness is the best treatment for hair loss. The decision to treat androgenetic alopecia depends upon its emotional effect on the patient’s sense of well-being. Many different therapies to stop hair loss and to regrow hair are promoted; you should discuss these options with your physician to establish their validity.
My hair loss problem started after years of ‘over colouring’ my hair. I also get regular emails from men and women saying they did permanent straightening or rebonding and after few days their hair started falling out in large numbers.
Any constant hairstyle that pulls the hair back so there’s pressure at the root — like ponytails or cornrows — can cause traction alopecia, Dr. Senna says. This is more common with Black women, and more than half of African American women will cite hair loss or thinning hair as their number one concern, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Wearing extensions or wigs that clip in or are glued to existing hair puts more stress on your strands. Other treatments like bleach, dye, relaxers, and perms can weaken your hair. Even tools like a flatiron or curler can reach extremely high temperatures that further fracture your hair.
Chemotherapy is the treatment of cancer with drugs that can destroy cancer cells. These drugs often are called anticancer drugs. Chemotherapy is often used with other treatments. Coping with side effects (fatigue, nausea, vomiting, pain, hair loss, infection, diarrhea, constipation, fluid retention, mouth and throat problems) are important to understand when undergoing chemotherapy treatment. It is important to eat well during chemotherapy, and get the support you need both during and after treatment.
