Other hair loss may reflect hypothyroidism (which if detected is very manageable), ill-defined health problems (telogen effluvium) and there are some rare causes. Maintaining your overall health is your best help here, and nothing's certain. ...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.

Slightly getting bald, is there any way to prevent it or make it grow?

Propecia and rogaine (minoxidil) are the two rx products i'm familiar with and seem to be safe. I'd prefer helping a patient find a skilled, cerfified transplant doc. ...Read more

Is there any way to prevent that?

Maybe: All normal men lose the hair on their temples at age 20 or so. It's the last change in becoming an adult man. If you're blessed with a thick beard and great body hair, you're more likely to have this progress. Your physician can offer medications and a referral to a specialist, but many men embrace it, buzz their heads, grow a nice beard, and stay fit. Photo-guy's happy; you can be too.

Need supervision: The female to male transition. During this process, transgender men take androgens. This usually stops their monthly periods. Androgens cause women to grow hair on their faces.

Absolutely!: Try different hair care product lines. Rogaine (minoxidil) 5% foam is an excellent way to delay or even recover lost hair follicles to fill in male pattern baldness areas. There are also oral medications like Propecia which have had less success, but are certainly worth a try! the only thing is, you have to apply rogaine (minoxidil) twice every day! if you stop watering your flowers, they will no longer grow! ...Read more

If want to shave my head bald for summer, will just SPF 30 help prevent skin cancer?

SPF 35, uv A&B: Use sun block spf 35 and above with uv a& b protection. Bang for your buck after 35 is very little. Re apply 90 min to 2 hours even if it says all day block. This was a glitch in the system of sunblock approval from fda. Beyond 90 min it gave them a all day approval rating. It will be corrected soon. ...Read more
