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
Can I take biotin 10000mcg with multivitamin? Currently I m taking 1tab (multivitaminin) per day. I want 2 take biotin for my hair loss prblm, please ans.
Yes, however...: It is totally safe to take biotin, which is a safe nontoxic vitamin. However, it may not help your hair loss- biotin can help if you are deficient but if not deficient then it is not likely to help. For other ideas see http://www. Naturalnews.

I'm 54 & take a multivitamin, should I also take more iron to prevent hair loss? I know it will thin with age but i'd really like to keep it a while.
Depends: Taking iron is generally advisable for women who are menstruating. If one is not having periods and didn't become iron deficient in the perimenopausal period, taking iron will not be useful. Healthy hair can be promoted by eating healthy foods, taking essential fatty acids, getting a good night sleep, and handling stress well. ...Read more

I'm taking propecia (finasteride) and but my hair is still very weak and hair loss but when I take multivitamin my hair get thick slowly which vitamin dificiency??
Biotin: I think I understand now what you're asking. There's not a lot of hard science here, but anecdotally, biotin enhances recovery of hair, more in patients with telogen effluvium than in male pattern baldness. If it works for you, great. But don't overdo taking biotin -- too much can make you quite sick. Can any other physicians here weigh in? ...Read more
I'm taking theragran stress tablet one tab. Daily which is a multivitamin bec. Of hair loss. No deficiency could this be overdose? Slight cramps in colon
Should be fine: Some controversy exists over whether a person who eats a balanced diet with lots of vegetables/fruits needs to take a vitamin. But over-the-counter vitamins are formulated to provide a generous amount of vitamins, but not excessive or toxic. Not sure it will help hair loss, but very unlikely to be harmful. Bowel cramps may be signal of mild constipation, sometimes seen with vits. Push fluids/fiber ...Read more
Hair Loss: Telogen effluvium is a form of nonscarring alopecia characterized by diffuse hair shedding, often with an acute onset. A chronic form with a more insidious onset and a longer duration also exists. Telogen effluvium is a reactive process caused by a metabolic or hormonal stress or by medications or phycical or mental stress. Generally, recovery is spontaneous and occurs within 6 months. ...Read more
Depends on cause...: One's primary care doctor can check for medical causes. If none are found, then one can see a dermatologist, especially one specializing in hair restoration (some treatments: minoxidil, etc, . ..). Medical causes may include: hormonal problems (low thyroid), seborrhea, alopecia areata, stressful illness. Other causes: genetic male/female pattern baldness, telogen effluvium. ...Read more
Food not the answe: You'd get the idea from reading stuff on the internet that food choices are the answer to everything. This isn't true. Your hair loss is genetically determined. You can slow it down if you wish by visiting your physician and getting certain medicines, or you can embrace it as natural and masculine, maybe building your muscles. Getting fit to match. Many extreme-tough-guy fighters shave everything. ...Read more
Hair loss treatment: Propecia (finasteride) is a medication used to treat male pattern baldness, not a condition that causes hair loss. There are many causes of hair loss. These include genetic (male or female pattern baldness), autoimmune (alopecia areata), telogen effluvium, and others. So, treatment depends on the type and causes of the hair loss. I would recommend seeing your dermatologist. ...Read more
Dissectingcellulitis: This condition is sometimes bacteria-related, and you probably need to get this cultured. If the culture shows staph or other infection, it may respond to oral antibiotics like the combo of Cephalexin and Rifampin for many weeks. Other treatments are available if there's no infection. ...Read more
Genetics...: Generally this type of hair condition is related to genetic predisposition and there is little to do about it. If nobody in your family history has ever had this problem, see a doctor. ...Read more
Hair follicles: Many chemotherapy drugs are active because they are more likely to damage cells that are growing and dividing rapidly, such as tumor cells. Other cells that rapidly divide can sometimes be damaged and lead to side effects. Hair loss with certain chemotherapy drugs is due to damage to the hair follicle cells by the chemotherapy. ...Read more

For healthy hair growth: Get adequate sleep, avoid excess sugar & fat in diet, v carbonated beverages, eat enough protein, exercise regularly. Biotin helps (but don't over do it). Insure you have adequate Iron (like kale & other dark green > ...Read more
I would start with a visit to a hair stylist who will bleach it well and educate you about keeping it intact. The first visit may be expensive but better to do it now than wait for your hair to fall out.
Many hair salons would sell you the better bleaches without bleaching your hair at their facility. ...Read more
Rare: Any drug can cause hair loss, in some people. But for some drugs it is common, and for some it is rare. In my opinion, hair loss due to Methadone -- technically, telogen effluvium -- is rare enough, while other things are common enough, that you would be wise to consult a dermatologist before concluding that hair loss is due to Methadone. ...Read more
Separate problems.: The real name for "dandruff" is seborrheic dermatitis. Effective otc shampoos all contain either tar, salicylic acid, zinc pyrithione, selenium sulfide, or a combination of them, so look for those ingredients. Dandruff does not cause hair loss, so that is a separate issue, with many possible causes. Your dermatologist will have to run some tests to determine the cause. ...Read more
No.: Masturbation would not cause hair loss in men or women. Alopecia has several potential causes including malnutrition/vitamin deficiencies, infection of the skin/hair follicles, autoimmune disease, mechanical factors (constantly pulling at hair for example), hormone changes, high emotional or physical stress and severe illness (eg end stage liver or kidney disease) ...Read more
Hats & hair loss: There are dozens of very different answers to this question (listed at https://www. Google. Com/search? Q=do+hats+make+hair+fall+out&rls=com. Microsoft:en-us&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&startindex=&startpage=1), but with little science. For hats to make hair fall out, either the hair has to be already brittle and ready to fall out, or the hat has to be excesively (uncomfortably) tight. In general, this is myth. ...Read more
