Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What could be causing hair loss in my home?
    Me my mom and sister have lived in the same house for 15 years. Two years ago we noticed gradual hair loss and thought it was no big deal. However, our hair loss still continues and I can notice my hair is much more thin. Hair loss does not run in our family and I believe the problem might be environmental. The fact that we all started loosing hair around the same time doesn't really point to genetic hair loss.

    • ANSWER:
      Have you had your thyroid tested? You need testing for ANTIBODIES as well as TSH. TSH ‘norm’ should be .3 – 3 (w/ most feeling best at < 2) but would not matter if antibodies are present. Indicative of Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Thyroiditis…main cause of HypOthyroid & is worse (...OR Graves Disease - HypERthyroid).

      WARNING: Doctors seem not to want to find/treat thyroid disease. You may have to go to more than one doctor before you get the right tests, interpretation, and treatment. Best wishes.

  2. QUESTION:
    What if your girlfriend is actually bald?
    But she hides it because she wears a wig. The reason why she's bald is because she has a condition called, "androgenetic alopecia," which means genetic hair loss.

    How would you feel when your girlfriend takes her wig off to reveal her baldness to you?

    • ANSWER:
      *sadface*

  3. QUESTION:
    For genetic hair loss I am planning to take Propecia with medicines to save from impotency.?
    Propecia is an effective medaication for hair loss but it has side-effect of impotency, so I am planning to take other medicine with propecia which reduces chances for impotency (like giloy satva or any other allopathy, avurvedic medicine to save me from impotency). Then will it be safe to take Propecia?

    • ANSWER:
      Here is the real skinny. Propecia is a one mg. tablet of the prostrate drug proscar. Propecia and Proscar do have an effect of limiting a form of testosterone. In some men this will cause a reduction of sex drive. Proscar is far more likely to reduce sex drive since it is 5 times the dosage of propecia. I have taken propecia and noticed no changes at all. I am now taking proscar for enlarged prostate and I now do experience a reduced drive but not impotence. I don't believe you will have any problems. Oh and those other drugs you plan on taking wont make any difference anyway. If you don't notice any improvement in hair growth after one year of taking propecia, it will not work for you. Some people simply go and get a generic form of proscar and cut them into 5, 1mg pieces and save big money. There is no generic for propecia.

  4. QUESTION:
    Does Finast (finasteride) pill has permanent side affect? Will it work against frontal hair loss?
    My brother(32 years old) has genetic frontal hair loss problem. He takes Finast (finasteride) 1mg dose daily with doctor's prescription. But he is scared about it's side affects? please give your advice and opinion about this. If you know any other treatments for this problem please let me know.

    • ANSWER:
      as we know - hair loss can be caused by many different reasons! There are many causes of loss of hair such as stress, poor nutrition ,medications, thyroid dysfunctions, illness, fungal infections ,hormonal problems, to mention a few.

      year ago my husband suffered very much from dandruff and hair loss too and he started trying everything you can imagine to stop his hair loss. the things that really worked for him was:

      1) Vitamin A - an anti-oxidant which promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp;

      2) Vitamin E stimulates circulation. Good blood circulation in the scalp is important in keeping hair follicles productive. The 'B' vitamins contribute to melanin, which gives hair its healthy color and also stimulates blood circulation;

      3) massage is also beneficial. Massage stimulates circulation. As already noted, good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Experts suggest a few minutes of daily head massage by hand. Circulation through massage may be improved by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base with massage;

      4) Try rubbing your scalp with garlic juice, Onion Juice or Ginger Juice (you can either of one out of three, Do not mix any of two or three);

      5) also he used herbal treatment - TrichoZed and Provilluss (do not use Rogaine - it will not work!)

      Those are a good products that helps prevent hair loss and contains Biotin and the clinically tested ingredients approved by the FDA to help re-grow your hair.! I think it is very important!

      It worked and still works for him!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry TrichoZed and Provillus but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here

      http://www.trichozed.info/ingredients.php

      and here

      http://www.provillus.com/?aid=221781

      It enhances hair growth by blocking DHT (Dihydrotestostrone) - a major cause of hair loss!

      Also Informative video about Provillus - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ydvCHhbRkk

      good luck!

      not only my husband`s own personal experience + working as a family physician

  5. QUESTION:
    Does Finast (finasteride) pill has permanent side affect? Will it work against frontal hair loss?
    My brother(32 years old) has genetic frontal hair loss problem. He takes Finast (finasteride) 1mg dose daily with doctor's prescription. But he is scared about it's side affects? please give your advice and opinion about this. If you know any other treatment for this problem please let me know.

    • ANSWER:
      Finasteride
      Originally used as a treatment for prostate cancer, finasteride is the chemical name for Proscar (5% finasteride) developed by Merck. Merck discovered one of the side effects Proscar was the stop of hair loss, and hence consequently created Propecia (1% finasteride) as a non-surgical solution for hair loss. Merck’s Propecia’s patent will expire in November 2013, and Proscar’s patent expired on June 19th 2006. Currently in the market, finasteride is available under the following brand names: Proscar, Propecia, Fincar, Finpecia, Finax, Finast, Finara, Finalo, Prosteride, Gefina, Finasterid IVAX, Finasterid Alternova

      How Finasteride stops hair loss.
      It inhibits the production of an enzyme (type II 5-alpha reductase) that plays an important role in the development of DHT. The reduction in DHT stops the miniturisation of hair follicles and consequently stop hair loss.
      Clinical Trial
      Proscar, Propecia, Fincar, Finpecia, Finax, Finast, Finara, Finalo, Prosteride, Gefina, Finasterid IVAX, Finasterid Alternova In a 5-year study of men with mild to moderate hair loss, 48% of those treated with Propecia (finasteride 1mg) experienced some regrowth of hair, and a further 42% had no further loss. Average hair count in the treatment group remained above baseline, and showed an increasing difference from hair count in the placebo group, for all five years of the study. In clinical studies, Propecia, like minoxidil, was shown to work on both the crown area and the hairline, but is most successful in the crown area.

      Treatment
      Finasteride is effective only for as long as it is taken; the hair gained or maintained is lost within 6-12 months of ceasing therapy. The clinical trials were based on men aged from 18-41 years old, who had mild or moderate hair loss at the crown and frontal areas. Hair growth was seen within in a period of 3 to 12 months. No studies have been carried out to test the effectiveness of Finasteride on individuals who are over 41 and who experienced severe hair loss.

      Side - Effects
      Around 1% of finasteride users experience side-effects: erectile dysfunction and gynecomsastia. Side-effects cease after the user stops medication, however this means that hair loss returns.

      Finasteride reduces DHT production, this causes a rise in testosterone levels, because testosterone that would normally be converted into DHT remains testosterone. Continual high levels of testosterone in the body could possibly have negative side effects.

      Finasteride reduces DHT production, this causes a rise in testosterone levels, because testosterone that would normally be converted into DHT remains testosterone. Continual high levels of testosterone in the body could possibly have negative side effects.

      At the same time, artificially low levels of DHT is also harmful to the body. Men also produce a small amount of the female hormone estrogen. DHT works as an antagonist of estrogen, by reducing DHT with drugs, a man’s protection from the effects of estrogen may also be reduced. This could result in gynecomastia.

      Read this testimonial emailed to me from: Mo Sratum(on Answers). You can contact him.
      Subject: HAIR LOSS! OMG!
      Message: Hi,
      "You may remember me, Mo Satrum, the guy with the constant questioning about the hair loss, well I've been doing it 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"

      TREATMENT: Massage olive or any pure, natural oil into scalp, Extra virgin olive, coconut and grape seed work well. Then brush vigorously preferably using a palm held brush with short natural boar bristles (Should have quite stiff bristles and be a non cushioned brush). You can see them on Amazon - they are known as military brushes.
      Brush strongly so you feel it stimulating/irritating scalp. Do 100/120 strokes at beginning and gradually build up to more and focus on where loss is. You may be apprehensive about irritating scalp - believe me I was too. But this is what will force new growth as it unplugs the blocked hair ducts that cause loss - they are the painful small itching spots- and prevent hair growth.
      As you brush some shedding and breakage may occur at first but will quickly stop as brushing makes hair better anchored and stronger. New hairs will appear.and will be weak looking and sparse. Keep up the brushing and do not be concerned if brushing uproots them, as they WILL re-appear even stronger.
      My hair has completely regrown on crown. Where receded at front regrowth was slower and sparse at first then each month it became denser. It demands perseverance week in/week out to get the same results.
      I only wash hair with a totally safe, totally pure soap bar with no toxins - no coloring, no fragrances, no preservatives, no harmful additives of any kind.
      You can find similar soaps in GNC, Trader Joes, some Walmart Stores, Cost Plus, Wegmans, Earth Fare, and some natural & health foods stores.

      I truly believe I escaped the fate of my grandfather, my father, my two younger brothers and a teenage nephew through this treatment. All are, or were, completely, or very nearly bald. So I feel this treatment has disproved the genetics theory.

  10. QUESTION:
    How to regrow hair or how to stop hair loss - are there any hair treatments or techniques?
    I am a 30 year old woman who is losing her hair. My hair loss started when I was 24 years old. Now I have less than 30% of hair that I used to have. If the hair loss continues, I will become bald. Please help me.

    • ANSWER:
      Toxic shampoos are a principal cause of loss. They sicken and harm scalp and cause loss then block hair ducts and thus prevent regrowth. Do a Google "Men's shampoos: Skin Deep Database" and "Not Just a Pretty Face." ....and you will see countless ones that are severely harmful and others which are safe and non harming.

      In my early twenties I suffered severe loss. Treatment stopped loss and forced new growth. Many years later I still have all my hair. My hair is`now so well anchored that I do not have any loss even when I wash my hair.

      TREATMENT: Massage any pure, natural oil into scalp, Extra virgin olive, coconut and grape seed work well. Then brush ALL of scalp vigorously preferably using a palm held brush with short natural boar bristles.(Quite stiff bristles are best). You can see them on Amazon - they are known as military brushes.
      Brush strongly so you feel it stimulating/irritating scalp. But do not overdo it. Do 90 /110 strokes each session and focus on where loss is. You may be apprehensive about irritating scalp - believe me I was too but this is what will force new growth as it unplugs the blocked hair ducts that result in loss - they are experienced as the painful small itching spots.
      As you brush some shedding and breakage may occur at first but will quickly stop as brushing makes hair better anchored and stronger. New hairs will appear and will be weak looking and sparse. Keep up the brushing and do not be concerned if brushing uproots them, as they will RE-APPEAR EVEN STRONGER and will not be uprooted.
      I found it best at the beginning to apply the oil at night, do the brushing and sleep with it that way and wash off in the morning.

      My hair has completely regrown on crown. Where receded at front regrowth was slower at first then each month it became denser.and has also completely regrown.
      I only wash hair with totally safe pure soap or shampoo with no toxins - no toxic coloring, no toxic fragrances, no toxic preservatives, no harmful additives of any kind.

      P.S. My near bald brother is now using the treatment after seeing my great success. We had not seen each other for 15 years and he and my other totally bald brother and totally bald 18 year old nephew were all amazed to see me with all my hair. Again it clearly shows that genetics has nothing to do with hair loss.
      Email me if you need more info. I can send photos and Mo Satrum will confirm the great success he also had.

      TREATMENT: Apply extra virgin olive,to scalp (extra virgin coconut or grape seed work 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.or more. 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 or three 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. Gradually, week by week, growth will be more dense and continued brushing will not uproot them. 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.

  13. QUESTION:
    Why hair loss happens in the center-back of the head when the sides are untouched?
    Hair loss is a common problem, however if you notice many people are losing hair from the frontal lobe to the back crown. Why is it that the hair along the side stays healthy while the hair on top dissipates?
    Further more, I understand not everyone has the same issue but it seems a tad bit more common; maybe a cure could relay on those hairs behind our ear?

    • ANSWER:
      The reason why are people losing hair from the frontal lobe to the back crown is purely genetic . There are specific genes which code for this pattern of baldness.These genes are rather more in number in the genetic pool hence this pattern is commomly observed in the population.
      I would like to share this hair fall remedy with you which is very effective in controlling hair fall. Grind an onion and apply it on your scalp and hair , leave it for 20-30 mins and rinse. It makes your hair stong and healthy. I can vouch for it....

  16. QUESTION:
    How long does hair loss from demodectic mange goes back?
    My 5-month-old French Bulldog was diagnosed with demodectic mange. He had suffered mild hair loss on the face (and the skin became reddish). He is now on medication for 3 days. How long will it take for the hair to grow back?

    • ANSWER:
      When my dog lost fur from sarcoptic mange (not exactly the same thing) it took him 3-4 weeks for his ears and some spots on his legs to be covered again.

      How healthy your dog is now will be a factor too for how fast fur regrowth will be. If you haven't yet, discuss with your vet about probiotics and omega 3, and even perhaps a raw food diet if you are interested. How healthy he can be will determine if his condition flares up again. You may want to go over the 2012 AAHA vaccine regulations to make sure you aren't over vaccinating as this triggers many dogs with demodectic.

      Be sure to inform his breeder about this condition so the breeder is aware and can inform the owners of the other littermates since it's genetic too. Best wishes.

  17. QUESTION:
    What do I do for an abnormal amount of hair loss?
    I've always had very thick hair, thank goodness. I've let my hair grow and have it colored/highlighted about every 5-6 weeks, but I've done that for years. I can run my hand through my hair and come up with 20 to 50 hairs in my fingers and I'm not pulling hard. My brush is full after brushing my hair once. When I would pull my hair back in a ponytail it was very thick and lots to work with, but now it's only about 3/4 inch in diameter. I don't pull it back anymore for fear that that is one of the problems. I am not taking any new medication and there doesn't seem to be a logical reason for the hair loss. My mother said it was "seasonal shedding," but I've never had it like this ever! I have it trimmed just a little each time to prevent split ends damaging my hair. Can anyone help? Any suggestions? I would appreciate any reasonable solution.

    • ANSWER:
      Meg, hair loss can vary from person to person, and in some cases it can be a sign of iron deficiency, and/or high stress levels. Are you experiencing any kind of stresses, either in your outside life or internally? Poor diet can also lead to hair loss. Have you been cutting corners on nutrition?

      I know it can be scary to experience hair loss like this. While some loss is always normal, and "seasonal shedding" as your mom said is also normal, you know your body best. If something is not normal for *you* and how your body normally is, then there is reason to investigate. I would recommend scheduling an appointment with your physician. Explain the problem your having, and s/he will probably run a blood test on you to check for anemia (iron deficiency) and some other things. If this is simply no big deal, you'll feel so much better hearing it from your doctor. If there's anything at all to help correct or treat---big or small--you'll be so happy you asked!

      In the meantime, you may wish to begin taking a multi-vitamin that includes iron in the formula. Try your best to eat healthy, nutritious, non-processed foods whenever possible, and don't overstyle your hair. Coloring every 5 to 6 weeks may just be catching up to you. Let your hair dry naturally, and go very gently with it in terms of how you wear it for now. Hair loss, simply genetic, can also occur in females and it's possible this is happening, though I'm guessing it's more vitamin and stress related.

      Try to be very gentle with yourself and if there is anything upsetting you or worrying you inside, talk it out and try to let it go if possible. Life has so many wonderful open doors for all of us, and if one moment is rocky, the next will be smooth. Good luck to you and I hope this helps! :D

  19. QUESTION:
    Is it possible to have female pattern hair loss with new growth?
    I've started losing my hair (breakage) due to a bad perm. On the sides of my head and in top. At first I thought it was female pattern hair loss, but then I have lots of new growth. Can you have female pattern hair loss and new growth at the same time? Oh and by the way, I'm also thinking of trying aphogee hair products. If anyone has heard of it, let me know.

    • ANSWER:
      A hair grows from its follicle at an average rate of about 1/2 inch per month. Each hair grows for 2 to 6 years, then rests, and then falls out. A new hair soon begins growing in its place. At any time, about 85% of the hair is growing and 15% is resting.

      Baldness occurs when hair falls out but new hair does not grow in its place. The cause of the failure to grow new hair in female pattern baldness is not well understood, but it is associated with genetic predisposition, aging, and levels of endocrine hormones (particularly androgens, the male sex hormones).

      Changes in the levels of androgens can affect hair production. For example, after the hormonal changes of menopause, many women find that the hair on the head is thinned, while facial hair is coarser. Although new hair is not produced, follicles remain alive, suggesting the possibility of new hair growth.

      Female pattern baldness is usually different from that of male pattern baldness. The hair thins all over the head, but the frontal hairline is maintained. There may be a moderate loss of hair on the crown, but this rarely progresses to total or near baldness as it may in men.

      Hair loss can occur in women for reasons other than female pattern baldness, including the following:

      Temporary shedding of hair (telogen effluvium)
      Breaking of hair (from such things as styling treatments and twisting or pulling of hair)
      Patchy areas of total hair loss (alopecia areata -- an immune disorder causing temporary hair loss)
      Medications
      Certain skin diseases
      Hormonal abnormalities
      Iron deficiency
      Underactive thyroid
      Vitamin deficiency
      Symptoms Return to top

      Thinning of hair over the entire head
      Hair loss at the crown or hairline, mild to moderate
      Exams and Tests Return to top

      Female pattern baldness is usually diagnosed based on the appearance and pattern of hair loss and by ruling out other causes of hair loss.

      A skin biopsy or other procedures may be used to diagnose medical disorders that cause loss of hair.

      Analysis of the hair itself is not accurate for diagnosing nutritional or similar causes of hair loss, although it may reveal substances such as arsenic or lead.

      Treatment Return to top

      The hair loss of female pattern baldness is permanent. In most cases, it is mild to moderate. No treatment is required if the person is comfortable with her appearance.

      The only drug or medication approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat female pattern baldness is minoxidil, used on the scalp. For women, the 2% concentration is recommended. Minoxidil may help hair to grow in 20% to 25% of the female population, and in the majority it may slow or stop the loss of hair. Treatment is expensive, however, and hair loss starts again when minoxidil use is stopped.

      Hair transplants consist of removal of tiny plugs of hair from areas where the hair is continuing to grow and placing them in areas that are balding. This can cause minor scarring in the donor areas and carries a modest risk for skin infection. The procedure usually requires multiple transplantation sessions and may be expensive. Results, however, are often excellent and permanent.

      The use of hair implants made of artificial fibers was banned by the FDA because of the high rate of infection.

      Stitching (suturing) hair pieces to the scalp is not recommended. It can result in scars, infections, and abscess of the scalp.

      Hair weaving, hairpieces, or change of hairstyle may disguise hair loss and improve cosmetic appearance. This is often the least expensive and safest method of dealing with female pattern baldness.

      Outlook (Prognosis) Return to top

      Female pattern baldness is of cosmetic importance only and does not indicate a medical disorder, but it may affect self-esteem or cause anxiety. The hair loss is usually permanent.

      Possible Complications Return to top

      Complications are psychological stress and a loss of self-esteem due to change in appearance.

      When to Contact a Medical Professional Return to top

      Call your health care provider if hair loss occurs and persists, especially if there is itching, skin irritation, or other symptoms. There might be a treatable medical cause for the loss of hair.

      Prevention Return to top

      There is no known prevention for female pattern baldness.

  20. QUESTION:
    What could be causing my very rapid hair loss?
    I am 24yo, and within the last year I have been balding at an increasing rate, Im wondering if it could be health related, what could cause rapid hair loss.

    • ANSWER:
      1. Stress is a huge reason for thinning hair. This can be your run of the mill stress from work/kids/school etc. It can also be stress from odd life situations. Long illnesses, surgery, and sudden life changes are a few examples. Sudden life changes like buying a home and getting married can cause an underlying stress.

      2. Nutritional deficiency can cause your hair to thin. Your body needs the right balance of nutrients in order to keep running like the well oiled machine it is. If you start to neglect your diet you can see the results on your head as well as your waist. Eating pattern changes occur most when you are under stress, so this leads back to the first one.

      3. Hormone imbalance is another leading cause. This could be due to sudden body chemistry changes. Pregnancy wreaks havoc on proper hormone balance. Most post pregnant mothers go through a temporary hair loss which corrects itself within a few months. Typically, if hormone imbalance is the cause the hair loss will be temporary.

      4. Illnesses can cause tragic amounts of temporary hair loss. This one ties in with a few of the others. An illness can cause an imbalance of hormones which will lead to hair loss. Also, stress/depression can lead to an illness that will cause the lost hair. Any surgery can also cause hair loss due to an underlying bodily stress.

      5. Androgenetic Alopecia is the most common cause of hair loss. This huge word is nothing more than the medical term for pattern baldness. This cause is genetic, but the old wives tales of skipping generations, etc don't apply well. Due to the genetics base of this, it is too difficult to tell when, who, and how fast this will take root.

      So there you have the top five causes of hair loss.

  21. QUESTION:
    Is There Any Ayurvedic, Chinese or Alternative Medical Treatment For Hair Loss?
    I am in my mid 20s and my hair has started falling out. Is there any ayurvedic, chinese, herbal or general alternative medical treatment for hair loss?

    • ANSWER:
      MOST SERIOUS CAUSE OF LOSS IS SHAMPOOS. Many have countless hair, scalp and even health harming harsh and toxic ingredients. See this site "Skin Deep Database -:A Feelgood Resource" and "Not Just a Pretty Face." Look in shampoos and you will see which are the most harmful.and others which are safe or only minimally harming.

      Read this testimonial emailed to me from: Mo Sratum(on Answers)
      Subject: HAIR LOSS! OMG!
      Message: Hi,
      "You may remember me, Mo Satrum, the guy with the constant questioning about the hair loss, well I've been doing it 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"

      In my teens I suffered severe loss. Then this NATURAL, safe treatment stopped loss almost straight away and forced new growth. It has helped others on ANSWERS.

      TREATMENT: Massage olive or any pure, natural oil into scalp, Extra virgin olive, coconut and grape seed work well. Then brush vigorously preferably using a palm held brush with short natural boar bristles.(Quite stiff bristles is best) You can see them on Amazon - they are known as military brushes.

      Brush strongly so you feel it stimulating/irritating scalp. Do 90 /100 strokes each day at beginning building up to more and focus on where loss is. You may be apprehensive about irritating scalp - believe me I was too. But this is what will force new growth as it unplugs the blocked hair ducts that sometimes cause loss - they are the painful small itching spots.
      As you brush some shedding and breakage may occur at first but will quickly stop as brushing makes hair better anchored and stronger. New hairs will appear.and will be weak looking and sparse. Keep up the brushing and do not be concerned if brushing uproots them, as they will re-appear even stronger.

      My hair has completely regrown on crown. Where receded at front regrowth was slower and sparse at first then each month it became denser. It demands perseverance week in/week out to get the same results.

      I only wash hair with a totally safe, totally pure soap bar with no toxins - no coloring, no fragrances, no preservatives, no harmful additives of any kind.
      You can find similar ones in GNC, Trader Joes, some Walmart Stores, Cost Plus, Wegmans, Earth Fare, and some natural & health foods stores.

      I believe I escaped the fate of my grandfather, my father, my two younger brothers and an 18 year old nephew through this treatment. All are, or were, completely, or very nearly bald. So I feel this treatment has disproved the genetics theory.

  22. QUESTION:
    How long does it take to notice the effects of Rogaine and do I need it?
    Hair History
    I've always had thick black hair, although it is very curly. In recent years as a result of dying it and using hair products, I've noticed the front and back of my scalp thinning a little bit - the hair's become whispy. I first noticed the thinning when I was 16, but this was after the first time I bleached my hair.

    I don't think there is any genetic history of male hair loss in my family, so i'm not sure what's causing it - it could be a lack of sleep as I've only been getting 3-4 hours of it a night for the past year, if not the hair products from earlier years.

    I hear that Rogaine can help regrow hair in most men but that it also sheds some of your hair and likely needs to be continually used for a lifetime. At 21, am I too young to be using it?. Is there a chance my hair follicles will regrow if I leave them alone without using Rogaine? If I do decide to go for this product, is it true that I will lose any hair regrown if I stop using it after the first few months?

    • ANSWER:
      Dont go out and buy anything expensive.
      First: Purchase a mild Shampoo (To Clarify hair, I will explain why)

      Second: TRIM your hair ends (May 1 1/2 to 2 inches)

      Third: Here's the magic part: Mix olive oil, almond oil, coconut oil, avocado oil and a "little" honey, (honey u will have to heat so it can blend). Either leave on ALL day or all night (if all nite, DONT use honey)

      Repeat this 3-4 times a week, your hair will grow like a weed & remove all frizz I promise,..... and it will be super shiny!!!!

      The clairifying shampoo will help take the oil off your hair when u shower

      You can find olive oil anywere, but the other oils you will have to buy at a local organics store, wholes foods or BJ's health corner.

  23. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have information about the hair loss treatment drug called Provillus?
    A little about my family hair loss history. My grandfather is bald. But my fathers side of the family have some or little hair loss. I'm starting to bald, but by the looks of it, it looks like i'm inheriting my fathers side of the family hair loss. I'm wondering if this is the right drug for me.

    • ANSWER:
      Provillus has been designed as a natural cure for those whose bodies have a lack of nutrients and vitamins which are essential for hair growth.

      It is a two-part treatment which uses a "topical solution" to prevent any further hair loss and "nutrient tablets" to help your body start regrowing your hair itself.

      Provillus wasn't designed to help genetic baldness but it is very effective in the most common form of hair loss - where your body doesn't have the right nutrients to keep hair growing healthily.

      As far as I know - it's impossible to know for sure what type of hair loss you have (genetic or otherwise) so if I were you, I'd just get some sort of natural treatment and try it out for a few months BEFORE the condition gets much worse.

      If it don't work, then you know you're probably dealing with genes :)

      You can see what other customers though of Provillus with this report about it: http://www.regrowreport.com/provillus-review.html

  25. QUESTION:
    How can I prevent hair loss at age 18?
    I'm an 18 year old male. I am losing my hair and its very noticeable. I started to notice this happening about 3 years ago, so that's at age 15. I thought it was nothing so I just let it go. But, the past year and a half I'm noticing it greatly and so are other people. Nobody on either sides of my family has or has ever had hair loss. What is the cause of this? How can I fix this problem? How can I grow my hair back? Please help I'm extremely desperate and its making me sad all the time. I'm losing my self confidence gradually. This issue is taring me apart.

    • ANSWER:
      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.
      Email me if you need more info.

    my moms side is normal, no one loses their hair

    • ANSWER:
      Permanent hair loss is the result of genetic and hormonal factors. Hereditary baldness is the most common form. In fact, it is so common that many people think it is a normal part of the ageing process

      Some causes of hair loss include:

      1.Heredity – the effects of testosterone, the male sex hormone
      2.Hormonal changes – such as thyroid disease, childbirth or use of the birth control pill
      3.Alopecia areata – an autoimmune disorder
      4.Medications – such as cancer chemotherapy or corticosteroids
      5.Nervous habits – such as continual hair pulling or scalp rubbing
      6.Rough handling – brushing too vigorously, tight rolling of hair curlers, over bleaching or the use of harsh dyes and chemicals
      7.Burns or injuries
      8.Tinea capitis (ringworm of the scalp)
      9.Long-term illness, major surgery and high fever – may cause temporary hair loss.

  28. QUESTION:
    What can I do to prevent hair loss?
    I'm 19 going on 20 and can already notice my hairline creeping back on me. I've never had the greatest hairline and both my dad and grandpa have very thin hair. My grandpa being almost bald on top.

    I understand that hair-loss is mostly genetic but is there a way to prevent any more? Or do get what I've already lost back?

    • ANSWER:
      you can take several steps of action. Recent studies suggest a poor diet or a diet lacking in certain vitamins, proteins and minerals can accelerate hair loss.

      This does make sense since hair is over 90% protein. Eating a diet rich in fruit and vegetabls will go a long way to helping you.

      change your shampoo to a shampoo specifically for hair loss or a shampoo with a good pH of between 5.5 and 8.5.

      take hair supplements which are specifically formulated to stop hair loss by providing the vitamins and proteins your hair needs
      and blocking the production of DHT in your body.

  29. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to handle hair loss?
    What can I do to best deal with hair loss along my front hairline?

    • ANSWER:
      Hair loss is a genetic/hormonal process that can affect both men and women. Hormones that bind to hair follicles can cause an imbalance in the biological processes that cause hair growth. Eventually, excess hormones on the follicle cause hair to stop growing and the follicle dies.

      Shampoo, wigs, creams, pills, powders, and just about anything else you can imagine has been marketed as a hair loss product. Hair loss products, if they are at all serious, work by either promoting hair growth, reducing the amount of hormones in the body, reducing inflammation at the follicle, or handling the autoimmune response that occurs as a result of too many hormones at the follicle site.

    • ANSWER:
      Here is an answer I found online, it is a response to a question about a 24 yr old who was asking about hair loss from working out. This response was made by Dr. William Rassman, founder of the New Hair Institute.

      This may seem logical, but there is no proof to it. Since you are 24 years old and at the peak of the early balding process when genetics generally tend to kick in, it may be coincidental with your training process. Realistically, if you have genetic hair loss you should have a diagnosis made, then probably treat it with Propecia, which should stop the hair loss impact of DHT reasonably well. As a medical student you should approach this process the correct way.

      I hope this helps some.

    • ANSWER:
      I was losing hair fast in my twenties then this proven, safe, fast working, low cost treatment stopped loss and regrew hair. It has helped many on ANSWERS. (See happy testimonials from users below ##)
      Castor, olive or coconut oil are very beneficial at promoting hair growth. All have been shown to regrow hair when first thoroughly massaged into scalp followed by firm brushing with a pure boar bristle brush on a regular basis. Don't be afraid of brushing. Initially, first few brushings may uproot just the sickened and poorly anchored hairs but then will make others better anchored.and healthier. It is best to leave oil on scalp for an hour before removing.

      IMPORTANT! Avoid the many hair and scalp harming shampoos which contain toxins that have been found to block and sicken hair follicles and so are the major cause of hair loss for many users.
      You will find totally safe shampoos by doing a Google "The safest hair shampoos: Skin Deep Database". See also Safe Shampoos on this site "Not Just A Pretty Face"

  33. QUESTION:
    Ive been noticing hair loss for the last 7 months what should i do to try and treat this problem?
    I thought it was because of the wax hair product i was using so i stopped but after a couple of months i notice that i'm still losing hair. I'm only 20 years old and no one in my family has hair loss problem.

    • ANSWER:
      There are 6 types of hair loss
      1. Alopecia Areata
      This is an auto-immune disease, when the body works against itself, by attacking its' own hair follicles. There is no cure for this condition, but certain medications/products containing Dithranol, Retin A [Tretinoin], Topical Minoxidil, and Zinc are useful to contain the problem.

      2. Androgenetic Alopecia
      In Androgenetic Alopecia, the commonest kind of hair loss condition, individuals find they have got a receding hairline that finally leads to diminished growth at the top. This is genetic in nature, thus its name. Propecia and Minoxidil are best known to treat this condition.

      3. Anagen Effluvium
      Chemotherapy, given to cancer patients, leads to hair loss. Such patients start losing hair as early as after one week of chemotherapy. The chemicals in the radiation therapy take their toll, when such cancer patients start losing hair. The loss, however, lasts only as long as the chemotherapy in most patients, even bringing about a thicker hair growth than before, some time after the radiation therapy is over.

      4. Telogen Effluvium
      This condition happens due to stress. When some individuals face a traumatic event - be it bereavement, separation, any personal loss, failure in an exam, financial loss - they may start losing hair, a few months after the event. In some cases , the hair can grow back, but for some, it may result in permanent baldness.

      5. Scarring Alopecias
      Also called Cicatrichial Alopecias, this belongs to a rare group of diverse hair disorders, which are divided into primary and secondary alopecia. This disorder occurs when hair follicles are destroyed and replaced with a scar tissue, leading to permanent hair loss. Sometimes the hair loss can be gradual, with no symptoms present; while at other times, there can be immense pain, itching or burning. Men and women, especially young adults are prone to this condition. One such alopecia that occurs mostly in teenagers is Keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans. Another kind that afflicts black African women is called the Central Centrifugal Alopecia, while Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia can happen to post-menopausal women.

      6. Self-induced Hair loss
      There are two types of this kind of hair loss, when the individual's actions lead to it. One is the Traction Alopecia that is caused by excessive pulling and tightening of hair, as in braiding. This also is found more in African women, who are known to tightly braid their hair or make corn-rows, so much so that the excessive pulling results in the hair breaking and hair-loss. The second kind is Trichotillomania, which is an impulse control disorder in which a person plucks out one's own hair. This normally occurs in infants and children from the age of 9-13; it may be due to some underlying anxiety, compulsion, or stress.

Also this has never happend to me before out of the blue it starts falling out about i belive 100 hairs or less a day. Im i sheding my thick hair cause its getting warmer out? ????????
    Im a male 21 years of age.

    • ANSWER:
      If you are beginning to lose your hair there are several things you can do to stop it. Do not take chemical treatments like rogaine or propecia. They have many side effects which I found out the hard way and include erectile dysfunction and impotence

      Eat a healthy diet. Hair is 95% protein and eating a diet with plenty of vitamins and proteins will not only make your hair look healthy but will help you to keep it.

      Vitamin B helps with circulation in the scalp, prevents hair loss, keeps your hair its natural colour and stops it from greying

      Vitamin C is an antioxidant that keeps your hair healthy.

      Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant as well and also helps improve the scalp circulation.

      Biotin which is another vitamin is essential for hair growth and healthy hair.

      Take natural hair supplements like provillus. These provide all the vitamins and proteins your hair needs. The best ones contain DHT inhibitors that stop your body converting testosterone into DHT which is the main cause of genetic hair loss this s the best step you can take to prevent hair loss.

      Use a good shampoo. Ideally it should have a pH between 5 and 9. This as close to the pH of your hair you will find in a shampoo.

      Avoid stress, this is a major cause of hair loss. If this is the cause of your hair loss it will cause sudden and drastic loss but is reversible.

    • ANSWER:
      Do you eat healthy food ? If not, eat more meat ( espcially liver ), beans, lentils, eggs, bran cereals etc. Do some exercise to clean your blood up, and also this may seem weird but maybe wiggling your scalp muscles can help.
      They're at the back of your head, approximately at the top of ears level, when they're contracted they cause the whole scalp to wiggle in a to and fro motion, that brings lots of blood to the roots and strengthens the hair. It may not work for you, but I suggest that you try.
      Also did you go to the dermatologist ? I hear there are some injections that can help !
      I fell your pain, I too used to lose so many hair that I would see my scalp, and in some places I actually had no hair at all. I'm much better now ! Also if it's long, it's very important that you cut it short, your roots aren't strong enough to take the weight of long hair.

  40. QUESTION:
    Is there any exercise to stop hairfall or regain lost hair that works really?
    I am losing my hair rapidly and I don't want to use chemical thing. I also do not have time for using natural ways of taking care of my hair. Is there any exercise suitable for me to stop hair loss and regain hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Vitamin B7 Biotin
      This type of B-complex vitamin does well to encourage hair growth, strengthen hair and prevent hair loss. You can get Biotin by eating foods such as yeast, kidney, eggs, liver, nuts and soybeans. However, getting Biotin from your diet is insufficient for your hair needs. You still need Biotin supplements. The recommended daily intake (RDI) is 30mcg. But you don't have to worry about over dosage as there are no side effects.

      Try and use only one shampoo or shower gel. If either is repeatedly changed it could cause damage to your hair as many shampoos aren't natural, you would be adding more and more chemical products in your hair which could damage them and cause them to fall out.

      Oiling your hair with coconut oil may also help. By doing this, the pollution in the environment won't stick straight onto your hair and damage it. It will stick to the oil instead which can be
      washed off when you get home.

      Propecia is one of the well-known hairloss remedies. Propecia is the first hairloss remedy approved by Food and Drug Administration. More than 2 million Americans are using Propecia at present. Propecia works on Alopecia by inhibiting the formation of DHT [A chemical which causes hair loss]. In 85% cases this hairloss product has worked well.

      Keeping a healthy head of hair is also important for those who are worried about losing their hair entirely as a parent or sibling has. A lack of healthy hair may be indicative of a genetic problem in the scalp and hair follicles. Many times these problems are hidden for years, but eventually show themselves in the form of hair loss.

      Stop Then Regrow

      Once hair loss is stopped you can begin to concentrate on regrowth. DHT blockers that stop hair loss may supply some nutrients to the scalp to simulate dormant hair follicles, if not you will need either a hair loss supplement or some form of topical treatment that is designed to stimulate hair growth.

      Drink Water
      Eight to ten glasses of water is an absolute requirement. Drinking water flushes your body of toxins, chemicals, and impurities that stifle your hair growth and disrupt your hormone and enzyme imbalances. Water also transports the important nutrients your body needs throughout your body. Hate drinking water? Add lemon and Splenda to have a healthy, tasty alternative.

  41. QUESTION:
    How can I slow or stop hair loss?
    I'm 19 and the doc said I am losing hair. Would eating healthier and excersizing postpone or stop hair loss? I was drinking and smoking quite heavily on weekends, could that have been part of the problem?

    And also, are there certain vitamins I should focus on getting in my system to reduce the loss? Are there any longterm products I can take to prevent any future hair loss.

    I'm looking for pills that work, Are there any?

    I know that's alot of questions, but any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm 19 and the doc said I am losing hair. Would eating healthier and excersizing postpone or stop hair loss?

      I am going to presume you are a male in generally good health and answer your question(s) accordingly. To begin with, hair loss in men beginning at age 19 is not particularly unusual, but does signal one's genetic predisposition to a fairly significant degree of hair loss as time passes. The best guide to judging your future hair loss is to look at male relatives on both sides of your family. If they experienced hair loss early in life, this is a tendency you may have inherited too.

      I was drinking and smoking quite heavily on weekends, could that have been part of the problem?

      While drinking and smoking are certainly not good for your health, neither of these habits, to my knowledge, are typically linked to the onset or progression of pattern hair loss. There are three things that need to conspire in order to suffer pattern hair loss. First, genetics; which we've already discussed. Second, age; this means that 9 year old children do not usually suffer from pattern hair loss. And third, circulating hormones; think of hormones as the match that lights the fuse. Put these three factors in motion and you have all the ingredients to suffer from androgenetic alopecia (typical pattern hair loss). Since no one can modify your genetics or age, medical treatments designed to address pattern hair loss target various facets of the hormonal metabolic steps that cause susceptible scalp hair to thin.

      And also, are there certain vitamins I should focus on getting in my system to reduce the loss? Are there any longterm products I can take to prevent any future hair loss.

      I'm looking for pills that work, Are there any?

      At the present time there are several classes of drugs that have been shown to offer positive benefit in treating hair loss. These are topical minoxidil, oral finasteride & oral dutasteride. Finasteride and dutasteride block the enzyme (5 alpha-reductase) that synthesizes the main problematic hormone (DHT) from substrate (testosterone). Minoxidil seems to influence calcium channel metabolism in a biochemical pathway (too complicated to get into here)---which regulates hair cycling among many other things---in a manner that, to my knowledge, has not yet been fully worked out.

      Certain naturally occurring substances, such as saw palmetto and other compounds also seem to offer potential benefit in the context of androgen-mediated disorders (e.g. pattern hair loss). The nice thing about such naturally derived substances is that they are thought to work without the potential for negative side effect. Regardless, as to which among these options offers the right choice for any given person is a question best worked out with the active assistance of one's primary care provider. He/She is a medical expert. He/She also has your best interests at heart.

      I know that's alot of questions, but any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Take your time. Learn as much as you can. Do your product/drug research. Don't let anyone pressure you into jumping into one treatment or another until you have your facts straight. And most importantly, enlist the aid of your treating physician in helping you make the appropriate decisions. Do these things and you stand a good chance of slowing/stopping/possibly reversing your hair loss. Hope that helps...

  42. QUESTION:
    I am suffering from acute excessive hair loss. I have dandruff and my hair is also thinning.?
    If my anti dandruff shampoo works and the dandruff clears up, will the hair loss stop? Also, will I get my original hair thickness and volume back?

    • ANSWER:
      MOST SERIOUS CAUSE OF LOSS IS SHAMPOOS .Many have countless hair, scalp and even health harming harsh and toxic ingredients. Dandruff shampoos have even more toxic ingredients that severely harm scalp and hair . See this site "Skin Deep Database -:A Feelgood Resource" and "Not Just a Pretty Face." Look in shampoos and you will see which are the most harmful.and others which are safe or only minimally harming.

      In my teens I suffered severe loss. Then this NATURAL, safe treatment stopped loss almost straight away and forced new growth. It has helped others on ANSWERS.

      Read this testimonial emailed to me from: Mo Sratum(on Answers). You can contact him.
      Subject: HAIR LOSS! OMG!
      Message: Hi,
      "You may remember me, Mo Satrum, the guy with the constant questioning about the hair loss, well I've been doing it 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"

      TREATMENT: Massage olive or any pure, natural oil into scalp, Extra virgin olive, coconut and grape seed work well. Then brush vigorously preferably using a palm held brush with short natural boar bristles(quite stiff bristles is best) You can see them on Amazon - they are known as military brushes.

      Brush strongly so you feel it stimulating/irritating scalp. Do 90 /100 strokes each day at beginning building up to more and focus on where loss is. You may be apprehensive about irritating scalp - believe me I was too. But this is what will force new growth as it unplugs the blocked hair ducts that sometimes cause loss - they are the painful small itching spots.
      As you brush some shedding and breakage may occur at first but will quickly stop as brushing makes hair better anchored and stronger. New hairs will appear.and will be weak looking and sparse. Keep up the brushing and do not be concerned if brushing uproots them, as they will re-appear even stronger.

      My hair has completely regrown on crown. Where receded at front regrowth was slower and sparse at first then each month it became denser. It demands perseverance week in/week out to get the same results.

      I only wash hair with a totally safe, totally pure soap bar with no toxins - no coloring, no fragrances, no preservatives, no harmful additives of any kind.
      You can find similar ones in GNC, Trader Joes, some Walmart Stores, Cost Plus, Wegmans, Earth Fare, and some natural & health foods stores.

      I believe I escaped the fate of my grandfather, my father, my two younger brothers and an 18 year old nephew through this treatment. All are, or were, completely, or very nearly bald. So I feel this treatment has disproved the genetics theory.

  44. QUESTION:
    What do you think of Nivea for men Hair Recharge Shampoo? Have anyone tried it?
    It claims that it treats hair loss by combining two highly active ingredients Carnitine and Creatine, supports hair growth. Carnitine increases energy production in hair root cells while Creatine facilitates energy storage (in-vitro proven). The System stimulates hair roots and reduces natural hair thinning.

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry to dash your hopes! I think all of the hair growth products are scams! It is a huge business and people still buy into to their fantastic claims. I have had clients try everything under the sun. Hair thins because of your DNA. Most likely your mothers father was bald or had thinning hair. Nothing stops that genetic make up.
      You can try it. BUT if you don't see NOTICEABLE improvement within three months, give it up.

  45. QUESTION:
    What's the safest hair loss prevention treatment/method?
    I'm 21 and already starting to lose my hair, not much but I noticed this morning it's started receding and isn't really visible at all without looking real close bit I want to stop it before it gets worse, what's the best product to prevent further hair loss? And what are the side effects and how common are they?

    • ANSWER:
      The main reasons behind hair loss are genetic issue and diet. So at first you need to find, out of these two main reasons which is causing your hair loss. Based on that you have to take precautionary measures. And don't stress on the issue as it will further deepen the problem for you, as stress is another major factor for hair loss.

      But you should not worry much as hair loss is completely recoverable if you use the correct medicine and methods. It will take some time, but you need to follow the medicine course on a regular basis until your problem is completely solved.

  47. QUESTION:
    What are the common causes for female hair loss?
    I've always had a lot of healthy hair on my head.
    Recently I've been loosing hair like crazy - within last 2 months I've lost about 25% of my hair. I'm a 33 year old female in good physical condition.
    What can be causing it?
    Thank you for the answers. I will go see my doctor.

    • ANSWER:
      Experts say our tresses usually grow at the rate of about one-half inch per month -- with each hair having a growth phase of two to six years. At that point the hair "rests" for a period of time, then falls out -- and the follicle from which it sprang soon starts growing a new strand. And so the cycle continues, usually well into our senior years.

      In some folks, however -- those with a genetic predisposition to hair loss -- a group of hormones called androgens interferes with this natural process. According to dermatologist Michael Reed, MD, androgen hormones include testosterone, androsteinedione, and dihydrotestosterone (DHT) -- all of which are made in men's bodies in large amounts, and in women's bodies in small amounts.

      In those who are genetically susceptible, when testosterone comes in contact with enzymes residing in the hair cell, it is converted into the more potent androgen DHT, which then binds with receptors deep within the hair follicle.

      "Over time, an excess build-up [of DHT] in the follicle causes it to begin shrinking, which in turn alters the natural resting and growth phases of the hair," says Reed, clinical associate professor of dermatology at NYU Medical Center, and a specialist in female hair loss. Some of the follicles eventually die, while others are rendered incapable of producing or maintaining healthy hair growth. The end result, says Reed, is hair loss -- and a condition that is medically known as androgenic alopecia.

      For many decades, doctors believed that androgenic alopecia was the primary cause of balding in both men and women. Today they know this is not true -- at least where women are concerned.

      Female, Male Balding Not the Same Pattern

      "We don't even like to use the term 'androgenic alopecia' in women anymore -- instead we call it female pattern hair loss -- a broader term that encompasses many possible causes, some of which are likely to be directly linked to an excess of testosterone, and some of which are not," Daly tells WebMD.

      Indeed, he says that although the science of female balding is still largely misunderstood, there is evidence that many other types of enzymes, as well as hormone receptors and blockers, may be at work in women.

      One clue that there is a true difference between male and female balding is the pattern in which the hair loss occurs.

      "Female pattern balding goes around the whole top of the head -- it's diffuse -- whereas men lose it on the temple, the crown, the bald spot in the back," says Daly. Not coincidentally, the hormone and enzyme receptor sites are also different in varying areas of the scalp -- another reason doctors now believe the loss patterns are caused by different precipitating factors.

      Another important difference: While balding in men is almost always the result a genetic predisposition coupled with age, in women, it can happen at any time. In addition, underlying medical conditions can also be the cause of hair loss -- even when true androgenic alopecia is the diagnosis.

      Medical Causes Common

      "Often these women are also suffering with polycystic ovary syndrome, [a common hormonal problem in women], and sometimes their hair loss is the only obvious sign," says Ricardo Azziz, MD, director of the Center for Androgen-Related Disorders at the Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

      In addition, Daly reports that certain types of autoimmune disorders result in a slightly different and often less dramatic hair loss problem known as alopecia areata -- an inflammatory condition that causes hair to come out in clumps or patches.

      Still others can develop a temporary hair shedding problem known as telogen effluvium -- a change in the natural hair growth system that often follows childbirth, crash dieting, surgery, or a traumatic emotional event.

      Azizz adds that thyroid disorders, anemia, even chronic illness or the use of certain medications can also cause hair loss in women that is often undiagnosed.

      For these reasons, specialists say it's vital for all women to get at the "root" of their hair loss before seeking treatment.

      "The No. 1 rule of treating hair loss in women is getting the correct diagnosis -- if there is an underlying physical problem it has to be corrected first," says Reed. Often, he says, that can preclude the need for additional hair loss treatment. As such, he advises women to see a doctor who specializes in female pattern balding and make certain to be checked for possible underlying medical conditions via blood tests, or if need be, a scalp biopsy.

      "Often the diagnosis is made by excluding what problem isn't there -- but it's still essential to do the complete workup," says Daly.

  48. QUESTION:
    I am suffering from hair fall for the past one month. Can anyone help me on this?
    I am a 22 yr old male. Balding runs in my family. Even for that, it seems a little early for the hair loss. I have been dieting and taking protein supplements for the past one month. Could this be a reason for the hair loss? Please suggest some remedial measures.

    • ANSWER:
      it's called premature male pattern baldness...it's hereditary, (genetics), if it bothers you that much, I suggest you see a licensed Dermatologist and he/she can recommend remedies to slow it down or stop the fall out all together...it depends of your genetic makeup..Results vary from person to person. it also can be triggered by some unknown illness your body is going through..suggest you get a complete check up just to be safe. So many reasons...are you presently taking medications? If so, this too can be a factor for the hair loss. Check with a physician to be sure, before you try any home grown or whimsical concoction someone may offer you. Okay...take care.
