Is Hairloss Treatable?

Fri Aug 22, 2003 8:59 pm

Has any of you treated his hair loss or thinning hair? Is it actually treatable as they say in the ads?

Yes it is, but as far as I know only 2 products work:

- The Minoxidyl which you put everyday on your hair. It works for 70% of the population.
- "Propecia" (french name perhaps) which is a pill you take everyday.

Don't ever use any other cosmetic product, they don't work.

You can always get a hair transplant. You need some hair to begin with in order to get one though.

Clear answer: No!

Maybe some or the other stuff works for you personally, but there is NO scientific proof, that any treatment right now can help you there! (except transplantation of course), neither cosmetic nor medical.

Don't waste your money, it's not worth the try.

But there's hope: Obviously research is pretty close to a cure, so in 5-10 years, baldness could be a problem of the past!

One thing: If your hairloss is caused by illness, there is cure, of course, but if it's genetical, no!

Hair loss is treatable only if you get the proper treatment before you loose your hair. Once you loose all your hair, only a hair transplant will work...

I work for the pharmaceutical company that manufactures Propecia (Finasteride). Since this is a prescription product, I suggest to anyone who is starting to experience hair loss, first go see a Doctor so both can work out which product will help prevent hair loss and if there are any side effects.

One other way to treat it, which I have found successful.

Once it starts going, shave it off!!!!!! Get rid of it!

Nothing worse than the comb over look!

Or you could try that colored hairspray that Ron Popeal was hocking on infomercials several years ago  Big thumbs up

You are wrong.
The products I gave work for the majority of the population. Of course, like Rojo said, it's to avoid LOSING your hair, it's not to make them come back.

Sebolino: Ahem....yes, certainly , but somehow I did understand the question somewhat different, AFTER the hairline is receding, and in that case I'm pretty certain my statement is accurate.

As for hormone-induced illness, see above, a former girlfriend of mine (29yrs old) had this problem, she used something to massage into the scalp, and after 2-3 months she got her beautiful dark hair back in full! And such treatment exists for men in analogue cases, too. But somehow I have a feeling, that is not really the problem discussed here.

btw: there's a rumour that guys without hair do have bigger....noses *cough*, maybe shaving it all off is a good idea after all Big grin

Have a nice weekened everybody!!!

Andreas,

If the question is for somebody who has the head like a mirror (  Smile/happy/getting dizzy ), then of course, you were right, nothing works, and probably nothing will work, since as far as I know, the problem is that the cells that make the hairs are dead ...

Treatable? Hair loss is a disease now?

Take a BIC disposbale to your scalp a couple times per week if you want. Much better than the 12 strands pulled over the bald scalp.
