Laser Hair Brush For Hair Loss
Yes for grafted hair: The question is a bit tricky in that hair transplantation does not prevent hair follicles that were "programmed" for loss anyway to somehow be "protected" by the grafting process. The transplanted hair follicles are harvested from sites that are resistant to hair loss and when they are grafted to recipient sites they retain their "resistant-to-hair-loss" status despite natural hair loss around it. ...Read more
Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia. Alopecia areata occurs when the body's immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out. Androgenetic (or androgenic) alopecia, on the other hand, is an inherited form of hair loss. With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called ...Read more
Beard hair: If you mean transplanting beard hair to the top of your head then generally the answer is NO. Beard hair almost always has a different texture than hair on your head and using your beard hair as donor hair will leave permanent scars on your face from where the hair is removed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hair loss in front, receding. A few White dying hairs. Best remedy or therapy? Rogaine, minoxidil, natural options?
Hair loss: Rogaine is a brand name for minoxidil. The chemical is identical. It seems to stimulate hair growth but as soon as you stop taking it the new hair will fall out. So you would have to take it for 50 years. Other options are hair transplants from the nape of your neck. Look at pictures of your Dad at your age.

Yes.: I know the package insert says it "has only been proven to work" on the vertex (crown) of the scalp - because clinical trials were conducted on that area, so the fda says the manufacturer cannot claim that it works anywhere else. However, in the real world, it works the same way on the frontal scalp as it does on the crown. ...Read more

No: I wish they were all this easy to answer. Stop and think. If this were the case, hair loss in men would correspond to the shape of the hat. It doesn't -- it follows a predictable course, with continuation of the normal temporal loss that all men get at about age 22, and loss over the crown. The back & low sides of the head, where the greatest weight of the ballcap or fedora rests, is spared. ...Read more

Maybe: Laser hair removal is young only about 11 years old so we don't really know the long term reduction in hair. A positive result is an 80% reduction in hair. So far the majority of the time there is minima regrowth at 10 years but in all likelihood if the follicle isn't dead there will be some regrowth in years to come ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

No----but: Hair is not like a plant. Nutrition of hair is only from its blood supply. "fortified fruit" is meaningless nonsense. A 20 yr old man with thinning hair is very common, related to genetics & hormones. See a dermatologist, bringing all meds, vitamins, supplements, & hair products. ...Read more
