Thyroid deficiency: I see that you have had a thyroidectomy. Your thyroid hormones are probably not at the levels that they need to be. Ask your doc to check your thyroid function in greater detail and adjust your thyroid deficiency accordingly.

Greetings, Besides heredity. What are other factors that causes baldness? Is it true that regular usage of shampoo and hair gel causes this? Thanks

Greetings, Besides heredity. What are other factors that causes baldness? Is it true that regular usage of shampoo and hair gel causes this? Thanks

It's heredity--the: Jean causing male pattern baldness is on the X-chromosome. That means your father had nothing to do with it because there are very few genes on the Y chromosome. It doesn't matter if your father and his father had a full head of hair. What matters is if your mother has brothers with full heads of hair and your mother's father also. The culprit is dihydrotestosterone, made in skin receptors from T.

Alopecia?: There is a condition called alopecia which causes the hair to fall out. This is different from male pattern baldness which is genetic and not a disorder. It can be in patches or the entire body. A dermatologist can tell you if you have alopecia (an autoimmune disorder) and treat it. Peace and good health.

Will biotin in shampoo help with hair growth for someone with alopecia?

Hair Growth: Minoxidil is an effective medication in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia (aga). Minoxidil has a direct effect on hair growth by stimulating dermal papillae or follicular hair matrix. Women should use rogaine for men (minoxidil) because it is stronger than rogaine for women.

I've used the shampoo 3 times in 14 days. I am experiencing hair loss. Is this reversible?

Probably: There are a number of different types of hair loss, from alopecia areata, to telogen effluvium, to scarring conditions like discoid lupus and lichen planopilaris. A dermatologist will help you get the correct diagnosis and find a treatment plan to get you back on track. Most of the time hair loss is reversible, especially if caught early.

Dermatologist: Can help you. You may have alopecia, an auto-immune disorder that manifests itself in hair loss. It is treatable. Please go or ask you folks or a friend to help you get to your family doc or a dermatologist. Peace and good health.

No such thing: If you are a young male with family history, think of Finasteride or dutasteride, both quite effective in humans, I domt know about leopards.

Could some shampoos be irritating and cause clogged follicles/hair loss?

Could some shampoos be irritating and cause clogged follicles/hair loss?

Clogged Follicles: As a hair transplant surgeon, I can tell you that is nearly impossible to for a hair follicle to become 'clogged.' while it is true that after hair growth ceases at the follicle, it does fill with sebum, however, this is not the cause of the hair loss, it is merely the result of the follicle not producing hair anymore. Certain shampoos can cause irritation, which diminishes hair growth, however.

Dandruff: Dandruff can be caused by dry skin, irritated, oily skin (seborrheic dermatitis), not shampooing often enough, psoriasis, eczema, sensitivity to hair care products (contact dermatitis), or even a yeast-like fungus (malassezia). When regular shampoos fail, otc dandruff shampoos may succeed. But dandruff shampoos aren't all alike, and you may need to experiment until you find one that works for you.

Tough one: This is a more than " million- dollar question", unfortunately. Relatively recently there was an interest in biotin, one of the vitamins which deficiency can manifest in alopecia (hair loss). It is available over the counter, yet I wouldn't raise hopes too high though.

Scalp issues: Seeing how you have an area with no hair I would recommend hair dye at this time wait till it clears up and there hair has grown back completely
