Hair loss treatment really depends on the hair type and genetics. You should see a doctor first instead of conducting a treatment yourself. I tried self-treatment, and I don't recommend it. I used to struggle with hair loss. I started using products with Minoxidil which I've heard were suitable for dealing with hair loss. I was allergic. My hair started disappearing. So I had to pay for a hair transplant procedure at https://novahairtransplantnyc.com/ to look presentable. Never prescribe your own medicine. This is what doctors are for.

Lots of things can cause thinning hair. I don't know all of the causes. Some causes can be alleviated but not 100% cured. I got good results taking 160 mg of saw palmetto 2x a day (or 320 mg daily) plus ingesting biotin supplements. I have no idea how much biotin to take is good. Currently using 5000 mcg once a day. I still lose a few hairs a day but it's not a lot compared to the clumps I used to get from running my hand through my hair. Topical use of biotin as in expensive shampoos don't work, do some research on the subject on your own.

Don't try laser hair treatments it doesn't work. Not sure how effective Rogaine is, supposedly it works for men, definitely doesn't work for women plus it makes your hair look/feel greasy and unwashed.

Do consult a dermatologist.

Your body is telling you that you need to pay more attention to your reproductive ability, and heed its calls, which means to not limit yourself, as there are solutions that will come to you. You can do this by moving the energy to the reproductive organs, which helps release repressed anger and fear. Thinking of the taste of sesame seeds helps with this.

You could stop excessive hair loss by taking some vitamins. However, you should see a specialist if the situation worsens. When I realized that my hair needed a change because it looked awful, I decided to see a doctor. He said it would be better for me to have hair transplantation to avoid further consequences. He showed me (edit advertisement) and explained that I should choose the clinic wisely. I listened to his advice, and I am glad that I did so because my hair looks stunning.

My mom started taking minoxidil (the active ingredient in Rogaine) for high blood pressure. It really did help to reverse her thinning hair.

So I know this is not what OP was probably discussing.

BUT WARNING ⛔ : My hipster sister had saw some sort of thing about dawn dish soup for shampoo. Anyways she did this for over a year and is now losing large clumps of hair. And this was someone with long beautiful thick hair. So anyone considering following hipster you tube recommendations for health and beauty please be advised.

I honestly couldn’t bring myself to lecture her about doing this without seeing more information on long term effects, because she was in tears.

So whatever you do, don’t put dawn dish soap in your hair as shampoo because a you tuber says it works great.

Foam minoxidil has helped me, though I need to do more than just that it seems. My hairline has basically paused -- or at least slowed -- in its receding. I've been using it since 2017ish? I think.

I also use Nizoral shampoo twice a week.

Probably gonna get a dermaroller soon and see if that does anything. My dermatologist recommended finasteride but I'm not risking the sexual side effects. Topical might be OK as the risk is significantly lower. But hopefully I won't have to resort to that.

And there's always hair transplants. If I can afford it, I might do one. But not right now.

Hi here I can tell you some ways that help you to stop your hair fall;

  1. Do not use a hairdryer or any electrical device which gives heat to your hair.
  2. Comb your hair with a soft brush.
  3. Avoid hairstyles that damage your hair.
  4. Avoid all the hairstyling spray or gel.
  5. Use a mild shampoo to wash your hair.

I use a large rain shower in my shower because I feel like I can get my hair and face really clean (the latter is important for taking off make-up). I did find a shampoo I love and it makes my hair feel so good! It is Giovani Tea Tree shampoo, and it is so tingly.

And avoid putting my hair up a lot and keep it flowing pretty naturally (parting however it seems to want to fall). By just allowing it to part comfortably, not using products much, and not putting it in high ponytails it won't stress the roots or the ends. If I have to put it up I don't use elastic bands, but just gentle clips. No gels, or hairspray, or thickening sprays etc. etc. I try not to straighten with a hot iron too often, even though I would love to. I also take vitamins, and eat adequate amounts of fat and protein which I think is helpful. I do think the vitamins help a lot.

My brother wants to try micro-needling on his temples combined with a sort of chemical that encourages growth.

He started with shampoo now. Apparently one of the side effects is that at first a lot of hair falls, but next times get better.

Hair loss can be caused by a variety of factors. That's why it would be the best to consult with a medical professional. He'll determine the underlying cause of your hair loss, like a doctor from Nova Medical Hair Transplant Miami · 2999 NE 191st St PH6B, Miami, FL 33180 did for me. Then, he'll decide what would be the right treatment. For some, medicines may be enough. Other people may need hair transplants or scalp micropigmentation. But in any case, maintaining a healthy diet that's rich in vitamins and minerals is crucial for your hair. No matter what approach you'll follow, keep your expectations about the results realistic.

Sounds like you might need a scalp treatment.

Also, when doing scalp treatment, don't go to regular hairdressers, but you should look for those professional scalp therapists instead.
Regular hairdressers are mostly trained to cut and color hair, but they aren't as trained in doing scalp treatments and they will only end up giving you low-quality scalp treatment.

I forgot about this thread. I know I already responded, but that was almost a year ago. I’m throwing the kitchen sink at hair loss and will try to update here if I have any success at all. Then maybe this comment will actually answer the original question. :p

I got my hair loss from my dad’s side of the family (so the whole “paternal grandfather” thing is complete BS, my paternal grandfather never lost any of his hair) and it started at around 20 while I was still dealing with my teenage acne.

I’m trying to adapt my regimen for hair loss. The foam minoxidil helps but it’s not enough on its own. My hairline is still bad enough to give me a fivehead lol, and there is some obvious recession especially at my temples.

In addition to the Rogaine and Nizoral, I added on Hairguard’s Maxoxidil, which contains stuff like zinc, azelaic acid, and caffeine. I also use this serum from the Ordinary which is supposed to help. And I use a laser helmet. I’m trying to do scalp massages as well.

I also take biotin and collagen peptides, and sometimes use some coffee shampoo in addition to my normal anti-dandruff shampoo.

my hair is kinda gross and crunchy at the edges now though, so maybe I overdid it. But I do have a bunch of tiny little baby hairs, where my true hairline should be, so that’s something. I decided that even the topical finasteride wasn’t worth the risk of sexual side effects, I’m honestly terrified of it. I mean, I’m a huge romantic, so I won’t take anything that can mess with my attraction, performance, or libido. Same reason why I freaked myself out of ever trying SSRIs.

I have a dermaroller for microneedling, but I haven’t opened it, and hopefully won’t ever have to use it. It seems like a rather difficult process with a risk of infection or tearing out the baby hairs.
