What kind of hair loss? Have you been sick lately?

Sometimes hair loss is caused by a recent illness or too much stress...These are the kinds of temporary hair loss...

MPHL or male pattern hair loss is irreversible as this is purely hereditary and genetic...

Try using Propecia ( Finasteride )...its the only drug proven to counter MPHL...I've used it and so far has been successful in controlling my MPHL...a box costs around 1.8K good for 28 days...

HTH!

in australia we have places called Advance Hair Studio etc...

what they do is a qualified consultant will analyse your scalp and follicles to determine their current condition, and then you can choose between strand by strand or advance laser hair treatment.

have a look here, make sure u click testimonials & see the before & after pics just scroll over their pic:
http://www.advancedh...004/default.asp

so if you have the cash look around & see if they have laser hair treatment in your area...

Pare, yung Finasteride na-feature na sa TV yan, pero may side effects daw yan (it decreases your libido)... totoo ba yun?


Last month, may booth yung minoxidil sa Megamall... I dont know if that is effective, pero kung papansinin mo yung mga hair grower sa market may mga components iyun ng minoxidil...

i agree. if you are losing it... dont fret. just accept it and move on. i've been wearing a cropped haircut (size 1 or 0 and shaven) for the last 5 years and i'm having fun with it... no maintenance. my wife, daughter, friends and relatives accept it. those who can't have serious issues to resolve for themselves. some girls find it sexy, especially if you have a nicely shaped skull.

unless you go for intervention such as transplant or BMW (buhok mo wig), you should just learn to live with it.

as you age and take medication for prostrate or the heart, some side effect of the medicaton is hair growth.

good luck.

Sugars and grains will increase insulin levels, which has been associated with hair loss.

A common solution for many people with hair loss is to get a hair transplant. This sounds like an appealing solution,
and if you use Google to search for hair transplants you will find many centers with glowing reports.

However, beware.
You will need to use one of the other major features of Google that many people are not aware of--Google Groups.

Over two years ago,
Google purchased Deja's entire Usenet postings dating back to 1995.

The archive is approaching 1 billion postings and is a major collection of knowledge that is wise to review when you are researching any topic.


When you type hair transplants into Google Groups you will get a completely different story.
You will find the many disaster stories that are prominently posted,
which gives a different, and perhaps more realistic, view of hair transplants.

If you are considering a transplant, you may want to hold off for the technology discussed in the article, which seems a far more elegant solution.

Conventional wisdom is that male pattern baldness is a genetic condition and there is not much you can do to alter it--I don’t believe that for a moment.

While it is clear genetics are involved, the expression of the genetic predisposition is largely environmentally induced.

It appears that once male pattern baldness appears there is little one can do to reverse it. However, if one applies the principles in the diet program and normalizes their adrenal hormones,

I believe most men can severely limit the onset of this genetic predisposition. However, men with hair loss should see their doctors to identify and address whatever modifiable risk factors for heart disease they might have.
While the baldness might not be treatable, men can certainly reduce their heart attack risk by exercising, maintaining a healthy diet,

making sure their blood pressure is under control, keeping their HDL/cholesterol ratios above 25 with the low grain no sugar diet, and not smoking. Other issues that can be looked at are serum ferritin levels and homocysteine levels.

Early Baldness May Result From Insulin Resistance
There exists a proven association between male-pattern baldness and serious cardiovascular events, but the mechanism of action is unknown.

Now, a new study has shown a strikingly increased risk of insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia, and insulin-resistance-associated disorders in men with early onset of male-pattern baldness (alopecia),

supporting the theory that early male-pattern baldness could be a clinical marker of insulin resistance.
Researchers performed a practice-based case-control study on 154 subjects (aged 19-50 years) with early-onset male-pattern baldness (onset prior to 35 years of age) and age-matched controls.

Men were only selected whose hair loss was significant, using an accepted classification method.
Information on diagnoses of chronic diseases and data on current medication, weight and height, fasting total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, and blood glucose were collected.

Blood insulin levels were measured.
Researchers looked at the following insulin-resistance-associated risk factors:

Elevated lipids (HDL cholesterol <0.9 mmol/L, triglycerides > 1.7 mmol/L, or lipid-lowering medication)
Abnormal glucose metabolism (fasting blood glucose > 6.7 mmol/L twice or antidiabetic medication)
High body-mass index
Elevated systolic blood pressure (> 160 mm Hg).
A "cluster" was considered to be present if at least three of the four variables were simultaneously positive.
The risks for the following were all found to be elevated for the alopecia group:
Nearly 5 times more likely to have clustered risk factors
Hyperinsulinemia risk was increased nearly 2-fold
Moderate obesity was increased nearly 2-fold
Severe obesity was increased nearly 150%.
Use of cholesterol lowering medication was increased more than 4-fold

Use of blood pressure or diabetic medication was more than double
Researchers maintain that there findings " ... raise the question whether insulin resistance could be a pathophysiological mechanism or promoting factor in early androgenetic alopecia, which could, in turn,

be an early marker of insulin resistance."

So there you go guys.

For those of you who still have a significant amount of hair left,

[B]CUT DOWN the grains if you want to keep your hair
.

It is far more effective than Rogaine and much less costly.

However, you must be warned of the side effects of a low grain diet - you will achieve far higher levels of health,
and decrease your risk of diabetes, heart attacks, and cancer.
If, and only if, you are willing to accept such side effects in exchange for keeping your hair

Restoring your
crowning glory
Posted: 11:17 PM (Manila Time) | Jul. 26, 2004
By Rowena C. Burgos
Inquirer News Service
EXPERTS say hair loss is not necessarily due to poor blood circulation, lack of nutrition or clogged hair follicles. In 95 percent of cases, it is due to the genetic sensitivity of hair follicles to a normal body hormone called Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The condition is known as alopecia or male pattern hair loss (MPHL).

"We normally lose about 100 to 200 hair strands a day as part of hair's normal growth and renewal cycle. [But] DHT [can increase] the rate of hair loss and... produce shorter and thinner hairs. Eventually the hair follicle dies and the hair is permanently lost," explained Dr. Rica Mallari, head of St. Luke's Medical Center's Dermatology Center Hair Unit, during the recent launch of ProHAIR's advocacy program.


The program aims to inform the public about male pattern hair loss and the facts surrounding this medical condition.

MPHL affected about 5 percent of men by age 20 and about 50 percent by age 40, Dr. Mallari added. And it's generally influenced by heredity.

"A man can inherit this trait from his mother or father's side of the family. If a man is genetically programmed to lose his hair and does nothing about it, he has little chance of keeping his hair over the long term," she said.

Hair loss, Dr. Mallari said, might have other causes such as stress due to an illness or major surgery, medications like chemotherapy, blood thinners, antihypertensives and antidepressants and diseases such as hypothyroidism.

Research indicates that by reducing the amount of DHT, further hair loss can be prevented. In some men, hair may even be regrown.

"There are no cures for hair loss, but its progress can be slowed down and its effects reversed to some extent," said Dr. Gio Dimayuga, fellow of the Philippine Dermatological Society and consultant of the Asian Hospital and Medical Center and Makati Medical Center.

He added that scientifically proven treatments were now available so men with MPHL could prevent further progression of the problem.

Propecia, one of those medications and available by prescription, works by inhibiting the enzyme that produces DHT, preventing its destructive effect on the hair follicle, according to Dr. Dimayuga.

The oral medication Finasteride, discovered more than a decade ago, was originally used for prostate problems. After two years, it was found that men above 50 years old started growing back their hair.

"It works very well for the crown but not the frontal area. You can take it with any drug, with or without alcohol, on a full or empty stomach. Take it once, any time of the day for at least a year," Dr. Dimayuga said.

Minoxidil was discovered more than a decade ago and initially used for high blood pressure and heart problems. A few years later, it was found that those using the drug started to grow hair. A topical solution approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration was created for hair loss treatment, but it has to be used continuously.

"Once you stop, the hair that you've grown will fall off," Dr. Dimayuga explained. "One can also try using hair extensions or going for hair transplant. The sooner you start, the better the response."

ProHAIR's advocacy program encourages affected men to see a doctor for a hair loss evaluation.

"Male pattern hair loss has no real cure. One can only prevent it from getting worse. But don't accept the norm if you can do something about it," Dr. Dimayuga said.

yes, these products work. they contain minoxil (ata). pero syempre, hindi overnight solution yan. so it will be expensive in the long run.

another option... kung may bald spots na or may receeding hairline, pakalbo mo na lang yan (as in skin head). uso naman ngayon eh. less maintenance pa.

another option... hair transplants, pero again. medyo costly na yan.

i think minoxidil ang sinasabi mo.. nakakatakot gamitin e.. if u read the list of possible side effects, may nakalagay na possible cardiac problems, etc.. so medyo nakakatakot gamitin.. tho i think its the only ingredient of hair regrow products that is proven to regrow hair.. but then, dapat continued usage or else hair will fall out again.. and its kind of hard to be forever dependent on that product..

hair transplant is expensive.. and painful from wat i heard and ndi pa naman kelangan.. thinning but not bald..
