I'm 25 years old I lost my hair & bald now. Can I have a hair regrowth.?

Hair loss: It depends on why you lost your hair. If you had chemotherapy, your hair should regrow when the treatments are done. If its a family pattern to go bald in youth, it's not likely to come back spontaneously. Fortunately, baldness is very stylish right now. But if you're not a fan or if you're a woman, there are other options for you. This can be hard to adjust to, though. I'm sorry for your loss. ...Read more

I had kidney tx 12 mnths ago. I have slightly baldness, alopecia. What type of hair product shall I use for my hair regrowth? Using (tacrolimus, mycophenala

Switch tacrolimus: Alopecia is a recognized side effect of tacrolimus (fk 506). If it is truly a new problem (started after tne transplant), there are 2 possible strategies. Sometimes using a zinc supplement helps. But the simplest + most effective approach is to ask your transplant team to switch the tacrolimus to cyclosporine, another very effective immunosuppressant. The team will usually agree. Good luck. ...Read more

Cosmetic healing requires a few days and the results are permanent. ...Read more

For male pattern baldness (24 yrs), is spironolactone 25mg daily effective for hair regrowth? Can the dose cause chemical castration on long term use?

No, it's not good: Sprinolactone is used to reduce the levels of male hormones in women with hair loss. It's not the appropriate drug for men. The only drugs that are fda approved for hair loss in men are Propecia and rogaine (minoxidil). Consult with your dermatologist for an appropriate treatment that fits your needs. ...Read more

I read some meds can break down collagen in hair follicles and cause hair loss. Any foods to eat to help build levels up to promote hair regrowth?

I read some meds can break down collagen in hair follicles and cause hair loss. Any foods to eat to help build levels up to promote hair regrowth?

Internet fantasy: There's not even any collagen worth speaking of in hair follicles. I've been looking at them under the microscope for a half a century. This stuff is made up by "natural healing folks" who pretend to be your friends. A few meds can produce hair loss but this isn't due to collagen problems. Further, food choices aren't the key to managing this or the vast majority of other health issues. Cheers. ...Read more

It doesn't: Because this is not the case, may be with some anecdotal cases, but not the norm or a common effect or side effect, the drug works on the sebaceous glands not the hair follicles. ...Read more

My dad has full thick hair. I have full thick hair. All of a sudden my hair has been falling out. The top of my head mainly. Can I be going bald?

You're kind of young: All normally masculinized men lose the hair on our temples at around age 20. Men who progress early to male pattern baldness are generally those blessed with a lot of chest hair -- look around you. It's unusual to have it start on the crown at you age, and you may have telogen effluvium or one of the other causes. Ask your physician. Good looks is about fitness much more than hair. ...Read more

Hair on top of my head was plucked during haircut, leaving bald/thin spot. How long and what should I do to take care of my hair for it to grow back?

It will grow back: All by itself. Hair which is pulled out by the root will eventually grow back. In fact, there are many invisible hair follicles immediately adjacent to the pulled out hair which may start growing even before the pulled hair grows back. You should return to normal in a few weeks without doing anything special. Find another barber, tho'! ...Read more
