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.

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

Are there natural methods to reduce your DHT levels tho help restore hair growth?

Hair loss: You should not reduce your testosterone unless you have a prostate issue. To my knowledge there are no "natural methods" to help restore hair loss. Healthy, active men tend to lose hair from about the mid-30's on and there are ways that can be helped. You could see your hairdresser or make an appointment to see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Does the (FDA Approved) Hairgrowcomb helps against Male Pattern Baldness?

Does the (FDA Approved) Hairgrowcomb helps against Male Pattern Baldness?

I'd be surprised: "FDA approved" doesn't mean there's any reason to think it works. This supposedly alters the appearance of individual hair shafts. You're already taking two medications for male pattern baldness. Keep doing this, ask your prescribing physician about this magic comb, and stay physically fit -- 95% of a man's good looks is his fitness, not where he does and doesn't have hair. Ask Photo Guy. ...Read more

Is being bald or losing hair hereditary in males? Females?

Yes: Both graying and baldness are mostly genetic- ask your older relatives when they lost their hair or started graying. Sometimes, medical illness or certain stressors or medical treatments(like chemo) are the cause. Male pattern baldness is carried by the females- so it is possible to have a bald father and sons with full heads of hair. Women can also have male pattern baldness. ...Read more
