The lesser importance of androgen hormone activity in FPHL may be explained by the finding that, compared with men, women have lower circulating androgen levels, lower AR concentration in scalp skin, a lower concentration of 5α-reductase enzymes and a concentration of aromatase, which functions to deactivate local androgens through conversion to estrogens (Sinclair and Dawber 2001).
Some forms of hair loss can be prevented by minimizing stress, eating a healthy diet and using sensible hairdressing techniques, and, if possible, switching to medications that do not cause hair loss. Hair loss from fungal infections can be prevented by keeping hair clean and by never sharing hats, combs or brushes with other people. Hair loss from hereditary-pattern baldness can sometimes be prevented by medication.
THIS ITEM IS A FAKE!!! The bottle you receive will say wild growth hair oil and have a website across the top called hairgrownfast.com. The real bottle will have no website written across the front above the logo wild hair growth. And if it does the ingredients starting with coconut oil, olive oil... will not vary. The ingredients in this product differ and so does the instructions in the front. Buyers BEWARE! Below is what I received. Pay atttention to the picture in the description and the ingredients.
“There’s people selling pills and creams and lotions and whatever else, and sometimes you can’t even trust what ingredients they have in there,” he warned us when we spoke to him over the phone. Key takeaway: The hair loss industry is crazy dishonest, so we eliminated any treatments (especially homeopathic methods) that aren’t based in concrete, peer-reviewed science.

While hair loss is common, severe hair loss as defined by Ludwig grade III (Ludwig 1977) or Sinclair grade 5 (Collins et al 2006; Yip and Sinclair 2006) (Figure 2) is uncommon and affects less than 1% of women. Severe bitemporal recession as observed in male androgenetic alopecia is also uncommon in women in which the frontal hairline is usually preserved.

The other main hair-loss treatment that was recommended by all four dermatologists I interviewed is finasteride, often called by its brand name Propecia. This FDA-approved medication is only available with a prescription, but these days, it’s found as a generic and ordered online after a virtual consultation, through start-ups like Hims, Keeps, and Lemonaid.
“The most common cause of hair loss in both men and women is androgenetic alopecia, which is genetic pattern hair loss,” explains Dr. Michael B. Wolfeld, a board-certified plastic surgeon and an assistant clinical professor of plastic surgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. The root cause of this type of hair loss is dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a byproduct of testosterone that shrinks certain hair follicles until they eventually stop producing hair.
For those concerned that the existing treatments lack a certain sci-fi quality, behold the Laser Comb. The Laser Comb recently became only the third hair loss treatment to receive FDA approval. And it is the first that doesn’t use drugs or surgery. By stimulating follicles with a low-level laser, the hand-held device was shown in test trials to increase hair volume in a majority of patients.
2. Oil-rich conditioner. “Oils improve hair’s tensile strength,” says Paradi Mirmirani, a hair-loss specialist and dermatologist in Vallejo, California. In other words, oils make hair less likely to break under pressure, which is especially important for thinning hair that’s prone to snapping when brushed or styled. Mirmirani recommends using a conditioner fortified with natural oils, like Burt’s Bees Very Volumizing Pomegranate Conditioner, which contains avocado oil ($8), or Honest Company Conditioner with coconut oil ($10). That one’s got an added benefit: “Coconut oil has been shown to penetrate hair,” says cosmetic chemist Randy Schueller, so it makes your hair stronger from the inside out. (Just don’t load up on pure coconut oil. “You might overshampoo your hair to get it out, and then you’ll end up drying your hair and undoing any benefit,” says Fusco.)
Finasteride works by inhibiting 5α-reductase II enzyme, which is responsible for catalyzing the conversion of testosterone to the much more active chemical 5 DHT. Thus, finasteride suppresses overall androgen activity by restricting total circulating androgen activity. Large scale studies on its efficacy are currently limited, with one large multicenter randomized placebo-controlled trial failing to find any change in hair growth or progression of hair loss with finasteride 1 mg/day in postmenopausal women with FPHL over a 1 year follow-up period (Price et al 2000). However, smaller case reports and case series have demonstrated efficacy for finasteride 1.25 mg/day in 4 cases of FPHL in both pre- and post-menopausal women with hyperandrogenism (Shum et al 2002), finasteride 2.5 mg/day in 5 cases of FPHL in post-menopausal women without hyperandrogenism (Trüeb 2004), and finasteride 5 mg/ day in 1 case of FPHL in a post-menopausal woman without hyperandrogenism (Thai et al 2002). Finasteride does appear to be successful in some patients, but further large scale studies are required to determine optimal dosing regimes.

For more extensive hair loss that is too fragile to withstand integrations, hairpieces or wigs may be used. Hairpieces contain skin-like breathable material and hold the attached hair securely in position. They are attached to the scalp by either adhesive tape or alternatively hair clips for ease of removal at the end of the day. They can be matched to existing scalp tone, hair texture, and color providing as natural a look as possible. They are robust and can be worn 24 hours a day.
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder also known as "spot baldness" that can result in hair loss ranging from just one location (Alopecia areata monolocularis) to every hair on the entire body (Alopecia areata universalis). Although thought to be caused by hair follicles becoming dormant, what triggers alopecia areata is not known. In most cases the condition corrects itself, but it can also spread to the entire scalp (alopecia totalis) or to the entire body (alopecia universalis).
The side effect profile of spironolactone is perhaps more varied compared with other medications, due partly to its additional actions as an aldosterone antagonist. These include postural hypotension, electrolyte disturbances, menstrual irregularities, fatigue, urticaria, breast tenderness, and hematological disturbances. Because of these known side effects, it is recommended that women have regular blood pressure and electrolyte monitoring, especially in the first few months of treatment. Further caution with its use needs to be exercised in the patient with renal abnormalities since it can potentially cause serious electrolyte disturbances.
According to practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine, hair health is tied to two things: kidney energy and the blood, which nourish the hair. The solution: acupuncture and Chinese herbs. While there isn't a lot of hard science to back this up, Maureen Conant, a TCM practitioner at Full Bloom Acupuncture in Seattle, says that she's seen women's hair stop falling out and then gradually regenerate after a few months of weekly treatments.

Like Anderson, he started to lose hair at 21 and tried similarly baroque remedies. “At the time, there was nothing except the snake oil you found at the back of muscle magazines.” He rubbed cayenne pepper into his scalp; he hung upside down; he visited a company that promised a miracle cure that turned out to involve a wig glued on to his head. He looked up a few British trichologists and surmised that trichology was a “study of bullshit” then visited an eminent hair surgeon whose eagerness to perform surgery immediately put him off the idea. It was the discovery of Propecia that ultimately “saved” him. “The drug stopped my hair loss. I had no adverse side effects. I regrew my hair on the crown.”
Increased hair shedding is common in the early stages of FPHL. When women present with increased hair shedding, but little or no reduction in hair volume over the mid-frontal scalp, various differential diagnoses should be considered, in particular acute and chronic telogen effluvium. Acute telogen effluvium is a self-limiting event, often triggered by physical illness, surgery, blood loss, or crash dieting. Chronic telogen effluvium (CTE) can be secondary to thyroid disease, systemic lupus, drug ingestion (Table 1; Sinclair and Dawber 2001) and iron deficiency anemia. Iron deficiency without anemia is not thought to cause hair shedding (Trost et al 2006). CTE also occurs as a primary idiopathic event. Idiopathic CTE is characterized by excessive shedding of hair for at least 6 months without noticeable widening of the central parting. Other causes for diffuse hair shedding in women are included in Table 2 (Sinclair and Dawber 2001).
Dr. Engelman recommends shampoos that nourish the scalp and strengthen hair, making it less brittle and healthier, as well as reduce oil buildup, which can help hair growth by reducing breakage. Pro tip: Healthy hair growth doesn't stop with topical products. To really speed up your hair growth, supplement your shampoo with a diet rich in protein (found in lean meats, leafy greens, nuts, beans, and fish), fats ("Fish, nuts, flax and avocado can help keep hair soft and silky," says Dr. Engelman), vitamin A (milk, eggs, and yogurt to improve scalp health), and iron (try a supplement or eat more lentils, eggs, and spinach).
Female pattern baldness: Treatment and genetics While most women lose between 50 and 100 strands of hair per day, this hair is usually quickly replaced by new growth. When bald patches or thinning occurs, however, it may be a sign of female pattern baldness. In this article, learn more about the common causes and treatment of hair loss in women. Read now

1. Collagen powder. Preliminary studies suggest that marine-sourced collagen may stimulate hair growth, says New York City dermatologist Yoon-Soo Cindy Bae. Though more research is needed, participants in studies reported thicker hair after three to six months of daily use. Crushed Tonic Original Powder ($105) easily mixes into coffee, tea, and water.


“There are so many different groups going down different avenues to tackle this problem,” says Hawkshaw. “Some use stem cells, some use pharmacological drugs, as we did. There’s a lot of promise in these pre-clinical studies. But whether that extends to real life, we’re not sure yet.” While it is essentially a cosmetic issue, that doesn’t mean it’s trivial. “It causes severe psychological distress,” he says bluntly. “It makes a big difference to a person’s perspective of life.” While he’s pretty lustrous at 28, he does worry about losing his own hair. “It’s a human universal.”
Fusco says that there’s something called miniaturization happening at the follicular level when a hair falls out. “Miniaturization refers to the slow shrinking of the hair follicle and the diminution of the hair within, until eventually the follicle no longer exists,” she says. “The remaining tiny hair falls out and nothing grows back.” She says that this is often genetic and caused by a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is a byproduct of testosterone. DHT clings to the follicle and then slowly shrinks it. This most commonly happens at the temples, the crown, and the front of the head. (This is also why you don’t see guys losing their hair around the sides and back.)
Minoxidil (Rogaine). This is an over-the-counter (nonprescription) medication approved for men and women. It comes as a liquid or foam that you rub into your scalp daily. Wash your hands after application. At first it may cause you to shed hair as hair follicles. New hair may be shorter and thinner than previous hair. At least six months of treatment is required to prevent further hair loss and to start hair regrowth. You need to keep applying the medication to retain benefits.

Getting Rapunzel-like strands is no easy feat—ask any girl who’s gobbled down countless biotin pills and vitamin E supplements only to be greeted with the same lackluster strands. There are a lot of factors that contribute to hair growth (or lack thereof), but one of the most overlooked is physical stimulation—as in, massaging the heck out of your scalp. Turns out giving yourself a scalp massage using some key natural ingredients can help your hair grow faster and in turn make your strands look more Blake Lively–esque. Or there’s the whole egg-yolk-mask thing. Or why not try a hot castor oil treatment? There are plenty of natural treatments that will give you the hair of your dreams. All you have to do is look to your kitchen for the necessary supplies.
First and foremost, let me tell you I am a logical person who is also a small businessman (graphics and video) and do not like to rip someone's product to pieces. I like to think that the creators of this Biotin Shampoo actually took time to formulate something that would help people but that is NOT my experience. I used this shampoo ONCE and it had such a negative effect on my hair, that I swore NEVER to use it again.
Traumatic alopecia — This form of hair loss is caused by hairdressing techniques that pull the hair (tight braiding or cornrowing), expose hair to extreme heat and twisting (curling iron or hot rollers) or damage the hair with strong chemicals (bleaching, hair coloring, permanent waves). In addition, some people have an uncommon psychiatric disorder (trichotillomania) in which compulsive hair pulling and twisting can cause bald spots.
4. Tinted dry shampoo. Camouflage spots where you’re seeing more scalp than you want to (your hairline, a widening part, a thinning crown) and add volume with a colored dry shampoo (try Orlando Pita Color Boost Dry Shampoo in Light or Dark Tones, $22). But be sure to give your scalp a vigorous shampoo during your next shower — dermatologists recommend keeping your scalp free of styling products so you’re not clogging already taxed pores.
