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. Get and read "The Serenity Prayer" by Reinhold Neihbuhr. Women think bald is sexier! ...Read more

Hair Loss (Definition)

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

Beautiful gorgeous hair as celebrity people have (shiny smooth hair) taking all possible measures like taking nutritious diet, exercise, sls free sham?

Beautiful gorgeous hair as celebrity people have (shiny smooth hair) taking all possible measures like taking nutritious diet, exercise, sls free sham?

My Opinion Only: The best way to ensure the healthiest hair is to be the healthiest YOU can be. Your general nutrition is the major contributor to healthy hair. The hair you see "on" so called celebrities more likely than not take HOURS of PROFESSIONAL work to obtain and "last" ONLY as LONG as the appearance or performance!! Just avoid such idiocies as FREQUENT BRUSHING which only causes premature hair loss! Z ...Read more

Have women used rogaine (minoxidil) for frontal scalp hair loss with good results?

Have women used rogaine (minoxidil) for frontal scalp hair loss with good results?

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

How minoxidil works in preventing hair loss ?Thx

Still not clear.: Minoxidil is a 40-year-old drug first used to treat high blood pressure. Hair growth was a common side-effect. We observe that it shortens the resting phase of hair growth, it increases the length of time hair grows and increases the size of hair follicles. The exact mechanism for these actions is still unknown, and may be caused by changes in the hair follicle or the supporting cells. ...Read more

The gene mutation : that causes hypopigmented hair & skin also causes deafness or Intellectual Disability in a small # of cases. Each of your children has a 50% risk of having Piebaldism. Unless your affected child's mutation differs from yours, his clinical signs will most likely be the same as yours.
