Hair Loss Articles, Tips and Information

Have We Won The Fight Against Hair Loss?

The thought of going bald has always been a private nightmare for most men. We dare not think of it. Maybe just the thought would cause our hair follicles to shrivel up and die. It’s the 21st century and we’re no closer to defeating the common cold much less hair loss. Or are we closer? Let’s take a look at the facts first.

1. If you’re going bald there’s a 95% chance it’s hereditary.

2. Minoxidil and Propecia are the only FDA approved drugs to treat hair loss.

3. Neither Minoxidil or Propecia is 100% guaranteed to work.

4. By doing nothing your 100% guaranteed to continue losing hair.

Those are some pretty harsh realities. I rather get the bad news outta the way first. Since DHT is responsible for causing hair loss we’ll look at ways to slow down it’s production.

Hair Genesis - Botanically derived treatment designed to prevent pattern hair loss in both men and women.

NATURAL TREATMENTS:

A. Green Tea - Thought to effect the 5a-reductase type I enzyme, which converts testosterone to DHT.

 

B. Flax Seed Lignans - Is suggested to have beneficial effects on hair loss

 

C. Saw Palmetto (herb) Effective at blocking the formation of DHT and appears to block the androgen receptors which are found on the hair follicles. It blocks Type 1 and Type 2 forms of 5 alpha-reductase and has shown to be more potent than Finasteride.

 

D. Zinc - Recent studies have shown that certain formulations of topical Zinc can inhibit DHT in the skin, leading to reduction of oil and possibly helping hair regrow. Do NOT overdose. Doing so can accelerate or cause hair loss

 

E. Vitamin B6 - Combined with Zinc, Vitamin B6 was markedly able to inhibit the conversion of Testosterone to DHT in the skin.

 

There are now studies that show that specific types of B6 alone will inhibit DHT creation and androgen receptor activity. One important factor is the source of B6 to use. Some sources actually INCREASE creation of DHT. If you don't know what form of B6 you're getting, it may be best to leave it alone. It is important to get enough though, because according to the same studies, a deficiency of B6 will increase DHT creation as well.

 

F. Omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids - Contain anti-inflammatory properties that are useful in maintaining healthy hair. By increasing these levels of essential fatty acids one can slow down hair loss.

 

G. Horsetail (herb) - Rich in amino acids, silica, and phytosterols, which condition & strengthen hair as well as reduce buildup of oils in the scalp.

 

H. Ginger (herb) - Ginger has circulatory agents that help stimulate the hair follicle's growth cycle. Additionally Ginger is rich in fatty acids which are recommended for hair loss, and the thinning of the hair shaft

 

I. Rosemary (herb) - Rosemary has been shown to promote increased circulation as well as help remove dandruff and sebum accumulations on the scalp.

 

J. Sage tea (herb) - Contains potent antiseptic and astringent components makes it a useful conditioner for the hair. Additionally, it thickens and strengthens compromised hair shafts

 

K. Capsicum (herb) Stimulates hair growth by 50% and increases blood flow to the scalp as well as histamine release to stimulate cell division. It is excellent at accelerating new hair growth.

 

L. Ginger - Ginger has circulatory agents that help stimulate the hair follicle's growth cycle. Additionally Ginger is rich in fatty acids which are recommended for hair loss, and the thinning of the hair shaft.

 

Be aware that there is no scientific proof that these foods will stop hair loss. But they can help to maintain what you have now and slow down your hair loss. Also using more than the recommended daily dose of these foods may be counter productive.

The key here is the amount consumed. Almost anything is toxic if consumed in large doses. including salt and even water! As long as you follow the recommended dosage by the manufacturer or retailer, and the recommended doses are not exceeded by combining too many different supplements, then the chance of toxicity will not be a factor.

 

THE SEARCH FOR COMMERCIAL TREATMENTS:

Thanks to the web we have more access to hair loss treatments. Although this is a good thing it leaves the consumer on a wild goose chase trying to figure out what product will work for them. Although GOD created every man equal, man didn’t create every hair loss treatment that way. So we’re left to fend on our own and research countless web sites all selling their miracle hair growth product.

 

We goto forums and see what worked for Tom Dick and Harry. But who do they work for? I’m not saying that every member of a hair loss forum is actually the owner of www.wehavethebesthairlosstreatment.com. But I wouldn’t put it past some unscrupulous advertisers. You also research articles such as this one to find unbiased information on hair loss treatments. And yes I do admit I use this venue to attract potential customers. But I believe in the product I sell. You are more than welcome to visit my site. With that said lets take a look commercial treatments.

 

Avacor- Product contains herbs such as saw palmetto and Minoxidil which they call Loniten. At $235 for a three month supply it’s one of the most expensive products out there. The product comes with a money back guarantee. Although they claim that the product has a 90% success rate it has come under backlash from a popular hair loss forum. Read the actual article at www.hairlosstalk.com/newsletter/article294.htm. There are also complaints posted on www.ripoffreport.com. Just type the word Avacor on your search.

 

Follicare – This product seems fairly new. The hair growth treatment includes a topical spray that contains Minoxidil, shampoo and a nutritional supplement. The topical should remain on your scalp for 4 hours before washing your head. Expect to pay $100 for a two month supply. They claim a 95% success rate and offer a money back guarantee. Their site is www.follicare.com.

 

The topical treatment serum is designed to use directly on the affected scalp while the goal of HairGenesis oral SoftGels is to treat the problem systemically, and block the negative progression of pattern hair loss before it has a chance to damage the hair follicle. The site claims it’s best to use both products. Of course at a higher cost. Hair Genesis does NOT cure hair loss. It improves your hair follicle which in effect makes it thicker. So the theory here is the hairs on your head will be thicker giving your scalp the impression of more hair. A three month supply will run about $200. For more info visit www.hairvitamins.net/hair_genesis/faq.htm

 

RK19 – This product removes DHT inflammation and revives your dormant hair follicles. DHT inflammation is believed to stop your hair follicles from growing and accelerate your hair loss. It comes in 2 bottles. One is an anti-inflammatory and the other a nutritional supplement. The cost is only $99 for a 6 month supply and comes with a 90 day money back guarantee. The Hair Transplant Network verified RK19’s results. For more info on HTN’s verificationi click here http://s2.phpbbforfree.com/forums/endbalding-about4.html. To purchase RK19 visit www.endbalding.com This is only a small list of what’s out there. If you have any information on these products or comments you can email me help@endbalding.com

 

FUTURE HAIR LOSS TREATMENTS:

Stem Cells - Research on bald mice can grow hair after being implanted with a type of stem cell could lead to an eventual cure for baldness according to a group of scientists. Many scientists have been researching whether hair follicles contain "blank slate" stem cells that can give most humans a full head of hair for life. Don’t count on this treatment any time soon. It’s still several years away.

 

Hair Cloning - The principle behind hair cloning is to produce new hair follicles from certain cells. At its simplest, a few healthy hair follicles can be excised from a biopsy. The follicles are then get dissected to isolate a small ball of cells at the base of each follicle called the dermal papilla. For the average full grown scalp hair there are about 200-400 cells in each dermal papilla. These few cells can be cultured in incubators to make several hundred thousand cells within 6 weeks or so. The cells are then implanted into the patients bald skin where the dermal papilla cells induce new hair follicles to develop.

 

The process is not fully understood, but we do know that dermal papilla cells send out chemical signals called cytokines that tell the skin to produce a new hair follicle. A new hair follicle is made from epithelial cells, but the *development and cycling* of the follicle is determined by dermal papilla cells. You must have both dermal papilla cells and epithelial cells together to form a hair follicle. Just one or the other cannot form a follicle on their own. Since there are so many factors involving the development of hair follicles in order to bring about new hair follicle formation the actual development is a long way off.

Maybe in our lifetime science will find a cure for hair loss. Hair loss is not a crippling disease. It’s a lifestyle. If you’re comfortable with the way you look then you’ve won. If on the other hand it’s affecting you emotionally that you need to use medication, then try different hair loss treatments and see what works for you. Always consult your doctor about any treatments you’re interested in. And take the time to look for any side effects on the product you’re looking to purchase.

Three Factors that Cause Hair Loss

 

Most of us have heard that too much hat-wearing or poor circulation to the scalp can cause hair loss. Theses causes all have been proven to be myths, and the real causes of hair loss are stress, health, and hormones. Stress can cause your hair to literally fall out. Usually the hair loss occurs 3 months after you`ve gone through the stressful period. Then you will need another 3 months after you begin losing hair for your hair growth to begin again ( if the stress has been diffused ). Your bodies built in healing process considers your emotional problem so important, that it ignores your hair putting it into a resting phase. This resting phase is known as Telogen Effluvium. Stress can also trigger genetic hair loss. If your already losing hair stress will cause you to lose hair even faster. So stress plays a big role in hair loss, keep your blood pressure down!

 

Be aware that there is no scientific proof that these foods will stop hair loss. But they can help to maintain what you have now and slow down your hair loss. Also using more than the recommended daily dose of these foods may be counter productive. The key here is the amount consumed. Almost anything is toxic if consumed in large doses. including salt and even water! As long as you follow the recommended dosage by the manufacturer or retailer, and the recommended doses are not exceeded by combining too many different supplements, then the chance of toxicity will not be a factor.

 

Health is also a factor in hair loss. Damaged blood vessel linings can inhibit your hair growth. This is because these blood vessel linings normaly produce endothelium-derived relaxing factor (E.D.R.F.) or nitric oxide (N.O.). Studies also show that there is a strong relationship between people with heart disease experienceing hair loss. Also, diabetics have a higher risk of experiencing hair loss.

Lastly, male hormones called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is known to be the most common reason for male pattern hair loss. DHT is produced from testosterone which is produced by the enzyme 5-apha reductase. DHT has a very high affinity being up to ten times more potent than testosterone.

 

Your DHT hormones can be balanced which medication, these medications will resurrect your hair follicles bringing them out of their resting phase and your hair will begin to grow again. The most popular hair loss medication is Propecia, Propecia can be bought through the online pharmacy I will link to at the bottom of this article. An inbalance of DHT triggers and autoimmune response in pattern loss, which initiates an attack on your hair follices. Gradually your hair follices will become inflammed putting your hair in a resting phase which causes hair to only fall out not grow.

 

Half of the men and women in just the U.S. suffer from hair loss. The good news is hair loss is no longer something you have to live with. There are many treatments out there, some will correct the inbalance of DHT in your body to allow you to grow your own hair again, some simply need patience or counseling, and of course you can turn to expensive hair transplant surgery. But why get to this point, just know the three factors that cause hair loss and your chances of having a full head of hair, go way up!

Understanding Male Hair Loss

In many families, balding has become almost an expected occurrence as a man ages. Even though these men are expecting male hair loss, they don’t escape the emotional turmoil that this condition often causes. The medical term for genetic male hair loss is “androgenetic alopecia”. For most men, the technical term falls far short of describing the condition. Understanding the cause of hair loss doesn’t guarantee cheerful acceptance, but it can go a long way in helping the victim to cope.

 

The cause of male hair loss in the vast majority of men is genetic, or a trait inherited from one’s parents. Basically, if one’s family is genetically predisposed to male hair loss, the hormones that developed masculine traits during puberty will begin working against oneself at some point, causing hair to thin and fall out. A certain gene causes the hair follicles to change after puberty, although hair loss may occur until much later. As a man matures, a form of testosterone called DHT begins to rise, and the already affected hair follicles to function less effectively. The hormone imbalance caused by the DHT causes the hair follicle to work less and less, causing the hair that grows there to grow thinner and eventually die and fall out.

 

This process is called “androgenetic alopecia” by the medical establishment, but many men have much more colorful names for it. Of course, anyone watching late night television knows that there are many hair loss remedies marketed to men and often women. Some medical treatments include the FDA approved Rogaine and Propecia, retail names for the drugs minoxidil and finesteride, respectively. Many companies market hair thickeners and gels, designed to help the hair remaining look thicker, but not providing a solution to the underlying problem.

 

Of course, there are many “natural” and herbal treatments that claim to regrow hair, some more effective than others. Billions of dollars are spent each year on these treatments. Many men choose hair replacement, plugs or reseeding and some even try a toupee. Understanding male genetic hair loss is necessarily the first step to searching for a hair loss remedy or even one’s acceptance of baldness. The ultimate goal in either situation is to eliminate male hair loss as a cause of one’s emotional stress.

Hair Loss

 

To all bald-headed men.

When you drive at night do you have to turn your head down to low beam?

Yes, there are many such thoughtless jokes about baldness, in both males and females. However, loss of head hair really is a problem, which causes a great deal of worry and unhappiness, to those afflicted.

Hopefully, there may be some help and answers for you, within this web site. It is often easier to reduce the ageing and thinning of healthy hair, than to regrow into follicles that are already dormant.

 

Reversing and preventing further hair loss may also be possible. Some products and techniques could be:

Topical ketokonazole, an anti-fungal/5-alfa inhibitor of reductase. Finasteride and/or minoxidel, known in the United States as propecia and Rogaine, or Rogeine, respectively. Placebos have average results, but not usually as high as other specific products

Hair cloning, or multiplication, using self replenishing follicle stem cells. Hair transplants have been used for many years. To lower androgen levels, aerobic exercises may be beneficial. This may also help stress reduction which can be an aid to slow the loss of hair. Senanoa repens/saw palmetto, a DH T inhibit talk and a herb. Fewer side-effects and less expensive than products such as dutasteride, or finesteride.

 

Since most of these cases do not result in complete hair loss, the hair loss treatment options include protein treatments and other conditioning treatments to strengthen the remaining hair; a good hair cut that will remove most of the damage; and a gentle hair-care routine that will minimize further hair loss due to breakage. You should also refrain from using thermal styling tools and undergoing any further chemical procedures until the hair is completely grown out.

 

Resveratrol is a lipase inhibitorl, made from grape skins.

Chinese herbs and Chinese medicine may be tried. Seek help from qualified acupuncturists, herbalists and holistic medicine practitioners. Beta Sitosterol, found in oils of seeds, may also help by lowering cholesterol. Use an extract, as the heavy consumption of oils can aggravate the hairloss problem. As we all know, baldness in males, is more common than females – thank goodness!

Baldness can be caused by a number of factors, including the trigger, an enzyme called 5-alfa reductase, which converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone - DHT, which can inhibit growth in genetically fine hairs. Some female baldness may be a result of an oestrogen reduction. Oestrogen usually counteracts testosterones balding action. Tight ponytails and corn rows, could also contribute to female hair loss, as may constantly wearing a hat.

 

This short article can, in no way, cover the wide spectrum of causes and treatments for hair loss. Search the internet through search engines such as Google, etc and seek help from alternative health practitioners, as well as traditional western medicine.

The Shocking Truth About Female Hair Loss

When you talk about genetic hair loss most people think about the most common form of hair loss: male-pattern baldness. This is the type of hair loss that is passed on genetically to offspring from their mothers. Most often the recipients of this type of hair loss are men, but sometimes the gene can result in female hair loss. While genetic baldness in men is identified by a receding hairline or balding crown, genetic hair loss in women is a bit different. In most cases, a woman will not lose her hair in spots only but will thin out evenly throughout the head. Sometimes, this thinning can be quite severe and result in the woman having to wear a wig to cover up her thinning tresses. While female hair loss almost never results in a completely bald head, it can be extreme enough to expose the scalp quite plainly.

 

For the woman facing this type of hair loss, there are a few hair loss treatment options that can be explored. They include shampoos, conditioners and topical treatments, such as Rogaine for women, which stimulate hair growth and prevent further hair loss; vitamin supplements; and stimulatory treatments such as massage and infra-red therapy. The most successful of these hair loss treatments are the topical treatments. While they are quite expensive, they produce the best results.

 

Hair loss due to chemical processes

No matter how healthy and strong your hair is today, you could experience severe hair loss after undergoing a harsh chemical process such as a perm or color. While almost all chemical hair fallout is due to operator error, the chance of it occurring is multiplied by chemical services that you perform on your hair at home. I've seen more than one case of female hair loss in clients who have bleached their hair at home, colored it over and then came to the salon for yet another bleaching. Not knowing this past history, the stylist used too strong a chemical, and the process resulted in hair loss.

 

Hair loss due to stress

Cases of severe stress can literally cause handfuls of hair loss at a time. Women experiencing stressful conditions can experience female hair loss represented by thinning all over the head or in spots called alopecia areata. Alopecia areata means "Hair loss in spots or areas," and can result in bald circular patches on one or more spots of the scalp. While this type of hair loss is alarming, it is not permanent. After the stress is removed, most sufferers of this type of hair loss regrow all of the hair that they lost. In most cases, the hair loss treatment for stress-related hair loss is minimal. After ruling out other causes of hair loss, your doctor will likely recommend changes in your diet or ideas to help alleviate your stress. Keep in mind that it can take months for your hair to grow back even after the stressors have been eliminated.

 

Hair loss due to illness

Any type of extended illness or surgery can result in hair loss. Medications taken to combat certain types of illnesses can also cause your hair to become brittle and break or fall out altogether. The most identifiable type of hair loss is the loss associated with chemotherapy treatments. In most cases, this hair loss is complete and affects all areas of the body.

 

While there is little that can be done to prevent this type of hair loss or promote growth during illness, surgery or chemotherapy treatments, this type of female hair loss is also temporary. In most cases, full recovery of hair is made after the illness is over.

You can promote hair growth after the illness by getting regular trims and using growth enhancing shampoos and conditioners. Vitamin supplements may also be beneficial.

 

As you may have already guessed, hair loss in women is more common than we might think. And many may be experiencing hair loss and dismiss it as a natural occurrence that comes along with age. A lot of these women fail to seek the necessary hair loss treatment that can help them keep their remaining hair and regrow new hair. So, if you are experiencing hair loss, do not think that it is just because you are getting older. There may be something that you can do to keep the hair on your head from clogging your drain.
