    Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    Hey guys, I'm 25 and have been thinning a little on top since I was 19. Probably the Greek genes I have...I dunno. Anyway, I am currently using 1.25mg a day of Propecia (generic, about $6 a month) to retain what I have. I dont know that my hair has gotten any thicker in the last few months, but I am definitely seeing less of it on the shower floor or in the sink.

    How about other restoration products like the OTC brand ointments, washes etc like Rogain for example? Anyone have experienc with stuff like that? Is there anything that will actually re-grow hair? My concern is mainly keeping what I have, but would also like to re-gain some if possible?

    Well, like I've said above, the generic Propecia appears to be helping me KEEP what I have....now I'm looking for something that will possibly regrow what I've lost.

    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    Hey stillwantmore, where do you get the generic Propecia from? AncientChina, i'm 19 and have noticed some thinning on my head as well. I think it's from my genes, which is a chinese background. Sucks for me cause I have super soft hair to begin with, and thinning is even worse. I can't really gel anything cause then my head will appear to be like see thru or something, plus my hair is too soft to really do anything with besides keep short. My hair grows fast besides the fact that it's thinning. I use the Nisim shampoo, but I can't attest that it has really been doing anything. I really don't know if I can live with being bald, and sometimes the thought of surgery/other possibilities go through my head. Anyone know how much surgery for hair restoration costs? and the pro's and con's of it?

    About 5 years ago my dad (who was in his late 40's at the time) went on propecia. He definately wasn't bald but his hair was getting thinner in the front and sides. He was on it for a little over a year and he regrew virtually all the hair he lost. Since then he went off of it and still has the hair he regrew. I think you just gotta give it time, it takes awhile for the hair to actually grow back but it will.

    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    The reason men loose hair on the crown, is because the hair follicles, have a set lifespan. This is why you see men that have plenty of hair on the back of their head, but not on top. This is inherited. But hair grows in cycles. All hair eventually falls out, and the follicle becomes dormant for a couple months, then it regrows, sort of like a natural resting period! Propecia, Rogaine, will offset the timing mechanism in the hair on the crown, that has a short lifespan.As for rogaine, there are 2 types, one has 2.5% minoxidil, the other has 5%. 2.5% is easier on the scalp, while 5% can cause irritation. If you can afford it, try to get some propecia & 2.5% rogaine. Also the rogaine increases the thickness of the hair, and strengthens it.

    Another thing that you could get, is Saw Palmetto, it has been proven to promote hair growth, and take care of the prostrate gland, and increase your sexual drive. I also take ginseng for circulation, as allot of hair follicles die through thinning veins/lack of blood supply.

    Massage your scalp daily, as this improves the circulation, and promotes regrowth. Also laying on your bed, with your head hanging over the edge, will draw allot of blood into the scalp, this could be done once a day, from 10 minutes, to 30 minutes. HGH, and IGF can also help you to regrow hair that has been lost! Also regular trips to the barber helps with growth! Just getting a trim will promote growth, it's kind of like mowing a lawn, by cutting the grass, it is then stimulated to grow, this is the same thing with a hair cutt! I will have a look, for more information, hope this helps, if you have any questions, please ask, as I have allot of knowledge on this topic!!

    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    I noticed my hair thinning at 18. It came as a shock to me because my Dad always had a full head of hair and my grandfather on my Mom's side has a good head of hair too. Now I'm 20 and my hair loss isn't as bad as I think it is. I haven't really tried anything in the way of regaining my lost hair because it's either too expensive or too time consuming. The best thing I've been doing is using this shampoo that makes the follicles thicker. It's called Thicker Fuller Hair and it does what it says. I saw this stuff on tv called Avacor and I was thinking of getting it when I had enough money. It's hella expensive but it'd be worth it if it worked. The other thing I might consider getting is this stuff called Toppik. Looks too good to be true. Take a lookhere . I don't know, it's most likely crap. I figure I'll be pretty bald by the time I'm in my mid-20's so I guess I better start doing something now.

    Another thing they found is an ingredient called Ketocoanozol. Its found in Nizoral shampoo. There's 1% and a 2%. Its a dandruff shampoo that you only need to use 2-3 week and gradually go down to once a week. It has been found to thicken the follicles about 10%. And reduces the fall out.

    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    This is one thing that I am so lucky about. At 33 my hair is still 1/2 way down my back. But I am still doing things like using Saw Palmetto and Nizoral shampoo. Though I still have a lot of it, I've always had fine hair. And don't wanna start losing it any time soon. This is a good thread though and people should definately continue with it. It is something we all have to be cognizant of.

    Hey guys, I recently got the book The Bald Truth by Spencer Kobren. He's a guy who's managed to treat his hair loss and helps others in the process. His website is thebaldtruth.com and he also has a radio show. His book is helping me to craft an approach to combat my hair loss.

    I bought it once and decided to take it back without even using it. It says on the box that it's primarily for hair loss on the back of the head not the front. That and the process of having to apply it twice a day, everyday didn't appeal to me. Plus I thought it would be messy. And once you stop using it any hairs you've grown back will start to fall out.

    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    I have used rogaine, and still use it! First I would like to say their are 2 types! One contains 2.5 minoxidil, the other which has more strength, contains 5% minoxidil. The 5% seems to irritate my scalp a little, so I have stuck with the 2.5%, and I use it 2 times a day morn/evening. It's not messy either! After you shower/shampoo, let your hair completely dry, then apply! It is acoholed based, and of a clear liquid, so it does not leave a color stain, and it is absorbed into the scalp in about 10-20 minutes! It will stop what hair you have from falling out, and it will regrow some, but not all! The hair that does regrow, will appear as peach fuss at first, then it will slowly change into your natural color. This doesn't happen in a month, it will take several months of constant use, and yes, once you discontinue it's use, the hair that was regrown, will fall out in a few months, and you will revert back to the stages of hair loss! Rogaine also strengthens the hair, and thickens the hair as well!

    I was advised to take the rogaine, along with propecia! Along with this I have cider vinegar with water in the morning, and before bed(to drink) cider vinegar oxidizes the blood, is rich in potassium, and is a good antioxidant, which has been reported to regrow hair. Also I pour cold pressed olive oil onto most of my food! Olive oil is very good for hair, it strengthens, and creates a healthy shine to the hair, it also clears your arteries out from fat, and plaque, which enables a good supply of blood to get to your hair! I also take saw palmetto(herb) which can help regrow hair! And for shampoo, I use one that thickens, as well as strengthens the hair, and don't forget the vitamin B complex, these will also help in your hair's health, and also help keep, or return your hair to it's original color if you have touches of gray! Any questions please ask!

    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    Here's something I found guys, about another possible factor in hair loss!!


    DHT is related to sex and/or masturbation. Recent advances in the treatment of male pattern baldness have revealed that hairloss in males is directly related to DHT. Therefore, can masturbation be linked to hairloss?


    Recent advance in the treatment of male pattern baldness have revealed that hair loss in males is directly related to DHT and the amount in your body. It is also an understanding that the production of DHT is related to sex and/or masturbation. With that in mind, does that mean there is a link between hair loss and masturbation?

    Over-masturbation or over-ejaculation converts too much testosterone into dihydrotestosterone(DHT). High levels of DHT overload the body causing baldness and possible prostate enlargement if blood circulation is poor in the prostate area. Reducing the frequency of masturbation or ejaculation will help maintain low levels of DHT and avoid hair loss.
