Hair loss is a reality for many people, but it’s certainly not exclusive to men. In fact, less than 45 percent of women go through life with a completely intact, full head of hair. But what causes hair loss in women, and can we do anything about it? Let’s find out.
Hi, great article. I have an aggressive form of MPB. I am 23 year old with a NW2 hairline, diffuse thinning over the top and crown. Been on 5% Minoxidil and 2% Keto for about 9 months. Went through a period of shedding which has reduced somewhat in the last couple of months. I don’t see any appreciable increase in density anywhere but I do see plenty of thin vellus hair at my hairline. I am waiting for the 1 year mark to see the full effect of this regime. Is there like a test you can do to assess hairfall? Or do we just have to count the hair lost in the shower? Do you reckon I should start the Fin to hold on the the hair I have? Like most guys (actually a bit more than most guys seeing that I am young) I worry a lot about being in the 2% who experience disastrous sides from Fin. I do plan to check my DHT levels before I start, if I do at all, to see if I naturally have high/low DHT. That should tell me what to expect, to an extent.
Ghee is another amazing food for your hair. It is rich in vitamins A, E, D, and Omega 3 fatty acids. Ghee is also said to help balance your hormones naturally – this is particularly useful if your hair loss is due to unbalanced hormones.
Deep breathing is the basic to many Yoga techniques. It is simple, easy and can be done anywhere while doing anything.

Dear one thing i want to share, unless we stop taking tension, and stop eating junk food these natural remedies won’t work. I mean a person must be happy, stress free, eat lots leafy veggies take care internally and then externally. It’s my opinion. love
The lack of protein in one’s diet is another trigger to hair loss in women. There are different types of diets that don’t give strong focus to the protein-rich foods needed for the body’s daily intake. Fish, meat and eggs are good sources of protein that can easily be incorporated into a daily diet. For non-meat eaters, there are still several alternatives, such as nuts, quinoa, and beans. If you have questions about if you’re getting enough protein in your diet, consult with a nutritionist or your doctor to implement a healthy eating plan.

Research also shows that there might be a male equivalent of PCOS related to male hair loss. One study found that men with premature male pattern baldness had hormonal profiles similar to women with PCOS and they also had significantly higher insulin resistance. (12) This shows how proper hormone balance in men is also important to health, specifically hair health.
I guess everyone knows what to eat and what not to eat, but there are so many temptations that you can easily get carried away. Eating simple home cooked meals is a great way to nourish your hair and skin from the inside out.
Studies have shown that rubbing green tea into hair may help curb hair loss problem. All you need to do is brew two bags of green tea in one cup of water, leave to cool and thereafter, apply it to your hair. Rinse your hair thoroughly after an hour. To see results, practice this regularly for a week to ten days.
The onset of menopause is often accompanied by a noticeable loss of hair. Menopause is part of the normal aging process, and the associated changes in hormone levels lead to a gradual thinning of hair.
Egg mask is another great remedy to reduce hair loss instantly. Egg are packed with protein, which works to strengthen the hair shaft as well as make hair shiny and voluminous. Egg also contains natural biotin (which is often touted as the hair growth vitamin), selenium, iodine, pantothenic acid and vitamin B12 – all important for healthy hair growth.
The earlier you begin treating hair loss, the more effective the treatment will be. Androgenetic alopecia is a condition that gradually worsens over time, so the general rule is that the earlier you seek treatment, the better. “If you’re losing your hair and you have genetic hair loss, using medication such as Propecia or minoxidil is most effective when started early,” says Dr. Robert M. Bernstein, Dr. Wolfeld’s colleague at Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration. Because not everyone loses hair on the same timeline, you can’t rely on statistics to tell you when you should start treatment. Some men start to notice thinning in their early 20s, while others maintain a thick head of hair well into their 50s. If you suspect that you’re starting to lose your hair and want it to stop, act quickly.
Domen, Great article, I’m 47 and I’ve been on finansreride and RegenPure DR shampoo for 3 years and don’t have much hair loss any more. However, all the loss happened prior. Do you think getting on minoxodil could help with new growth? Or transplant is the only option ?
I have DHT levels at the bottom -end of the normal range, so low DHT, however I’m still going bald, so besides DHT levels it also depends greatly on the sensitivity of your hair follicles to DHT. If you have high or low levels of DHT finasteride should obviously still help you maintain your hair as the process remains the same either way.
