Subj: Best natural dht blocker
Date: 5/16/2007
Hi, do you know what is the best natural dht blocker is on the market?

AskDocWeb: In our opinion that is Procerin.

Subj: Scalpmed?
Date: 5/16/2007
I just started using scalpmed....isn't good? Did u use it? Other advice what to use?

AskDocWeb: Since they don't say what's in it, how do you know that you aren't allergic to one of the ingredients. That is a concern for many people. Even if that is not a concern, it looks like a pretty expensive source of Minoxidil.

Subj: Hair regrowth product
Date: 5/17/2007
Hi, I lost some hair due to stress at the front of my head, but the rest of my head is still hairy. Genetically I was not supposed to loose anything (all men in my family have full head of hair). Which of the hair regrowth (as of now I am not loosing any hair, the stress is gone) products is recommended for me? Is Thymuskin good? Thanks please get back :)

AskDocWeb: Thymuskin seems to be working pretty well for some, not so well for others. You can read the reviews here.

Subj: Interested in trying procerin
Date: 5/19/2007
Hi, I am 26 years old recognizing some hairloss since about 2-3 years... I have tried already some treatment against it...but nothing worked.. I am now interested in trying procerin as serum. Are there differences in taking the medicine in form of tablets or as serum? And is it really that good as it is described? And will it stop hairloss...and will it even regrow hair on parts that are affected by hairloss? Thank you for your answer regards,

AskDocWeb: The serum has not received enough good reviews to recommend it yet. On the other hand, many men have reported good results with the Procerin pills. It slows or stops hair loss in about 70% of men and about one in three get the growth of new hair in areas that were affected by hairloss.

Subj: Method to stop hair loss and regrow hair
Date: 5/21/2007
My younger son Ethan who is in a couple of weeks 21 would like to do something about his hair loss...My husband and also his father both have experienced this and have the male baldness pattern. My older son (who is 25 did not inherit this luckily). What is the most successful method to stop the hair loss and also regrow the hair for my 21 year old son? Which method is the best and safest? Thank you for your help. Sincerely yours,

AskDocWeb: In our opinion Propecia is the most successful method but not necessarily the best. Read the feedback about the side affects and you may want a safer alternative, we recommend Procerin.

Subj: Laser comb?
Date: 6/3/2007
Any research done on the effectiveness of the laser comb / brush for hair loss?

AskDocWeb: If there was real proof out there in the literature, we would all be using them. Some companies are very creative in their advertising claiming that their laser comb is FDA approved. What they don't tell you is that the FDA approval is only in regards to safety, not effectiveness. I don't know any dermatologists that recommend using lasers for hair loss.

Subj: Mintop forte 5%
Date: 6/4/2007
Dear sir, I have been using mintop forte 5% for the past 8 months and only small hair have grown on the bald portion. Those hair are not growing at all, should I stop using it or shall I continue to use that.

AskDocWeb: If you've been using it for 8 months and don't have the results you want then discontinue.

Subj: Provillus
Date: 6/11/2007
I would like to know if you have any information and results for people who tried provillus.

AskDocWeb: We make a page to keep track of Provillus users. Be sure to add your experience if you try it.

Subj: Rogaine for women
Date: 6/11/2007
I read your comments about Rogaine for women and you mentioned the 2% and 5% strength. I have very slight thining of the hair only in the front of my head and no where else. But it really bothers me because it is quite noticeable being at the front. Would the 5% strength be the best for me to use if I am only trying to improve a very small area in the front of my head (right above my forehead)??? I am unsure because you seemed to caution against the 5% because it might grow hair in unwanted places??? Not sure what you mean by this but would appreciate a clarification. Also, Rogaine cautions that you will notice more hair loss for up to the first 6 weeks. Why is this???

AskDocWeb: The increase in hair loss over the first six weeks (shedding) doesn't happen to everyone but does seem to be a side effect of all legitimate hair loss products. The reason for this is not known but it only happens in less than one in five cases. What we mean by growing hair in unwanted places has to do with the way the product is applied. Since it is a topical the directions say to apply it only where you want hair to grow. What happens if you accidentally get it on your hands, forehead, or ears? Hair growing in these areas us usually considered unwanted.

Subj: What would u recommend?
Date: 6/14/2007
I am 18 years old male and my hair is thinning off da top of my head you can see my skull a bit. What would u recommend I use, procerin? And also have heard of the hairclub and there product called ext exterme hair therapy?

AskDocWeb: Instead of recommending a specific product, we recommend you visit a dermatologist to find out the cause of your hair loss. You may just need to eat a more balanced diet or take a vitamin product like Advecia.

Subj: Male pattern baldness
Date: 7/5/2007
I am 52 female with male pattern baldness and also have a hypothyroid. I have tried Propecia, Rogaine and Scalpmed to try and get my loss under control and not having much luck. I'm tired of spending alot of money on products that don't work. I want to try the Thymuskin products, but not sure if they work either. I don't mind spending the money if it works, but hate to waste it if they have bad reviews.

AskDocWeb: You can read the Thymuskin reviews here.

Subj: Severe pains
Date: 7/9/2007
Sometimes I have severe pains on my back left hand side. I can have them for days and even weeks. I am always tired and run down. I have hair loss and I am on levothyroxine 150mcg daily. I try to eat well and sleep well but it doesn't appear to do me any good. I also have just started taking procerin and I wonder if these could do any harm. Many thanks,

AskDocWeb: These pains should not be ignored, it may be heart related. Please see your physician.

Subj: Question
Date: 7/18/2007
Is it ok to eat raw saw palmetto from a tree. Will you get the prostrate benefits. Thanks

AskDocWeb: No.

Subj: Revivogen disclaimer making me nervous
Date: 7/21/2007
I have currently been using Rogaine for the vertex of my scalp and Revivogen for the frontal baldness. The Rogaine has certainly been working and I think the Revivogen is also working, however the disclaimer on their website is making me nervous. Anyone having any nasty side effects to Revivogen? Any suggestions on new products that aren't so cryptic?

Subj: ANYTHING at all?
Date: 7/31/2007
I'm taking CellCept, I understand you say there is nothing we can do to stop hair loss due to meds, can it be slowed down? ANYTHING to do at all?

AskDocWeb: You could try the Nisim Biofactors shampoo. We haven't heard from anyone using it to slow hair loss caused by drugs but if you give it a try please share your results. Others would like to know if it works.

Subj: Biotin?
Date: 7/30/2007
Hello, I've been loosing my hair for over 2 years. And I've tried the two big products out there in the market, Rogaine and Propecia. Rogaine did not do much (couple of thin strings) and propecia was causing mild sexual side effects. My dermatologist told me to take Biotin 5000 mcg. I've been taking it close to a year now and I'm not sure if it's doing anything. I've notice my nails getting longer quicker. Do you have any input on Biotin?

AskDocWeb: Nutritionists say that biotin is a vitamin that is essential for hair growth as well as nails and skin. Biotin supplements are often recommended to fight hair loss however, there are no studies that show any benefit of Biotin in treating hair loss unless the patient is actually biotin deficient. The symptoms of biotin deficiency include hair loss, and in severe cases include loss of eye lashes and eye brows. Although there are shampoos which contain biotin, but its effectiveness is questionable since biotin is not absorbed well through the skin. Good sources of biotin include the following foods:
  • Beef
  • Brewer's yeast
  • Brown rice
  • Cheese
  • Chicken
  • Eggs
  • Green peas
  • Kidney
  • Lentils
  • Liver
  • Milk
  • Oats
  • Peanuts
  • Soybeans
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Walnuts
  • Yeast
If your blood type falls in blood group A, you may have a problem absorbing the B vitamins, including biotin.

Subj: ANYTHING at all?
Date: 7/31/2007
I'm taking CellCept, I understand you say there is nothing we can do to stop hair loss due to meds, can it be slowed down? ANYTHING to do at all?

AskDocWeb: These are things that support normal hair growth. For example, you could pay more attention to your diet to make sure that you have all the vitamins and minerals necessary for health hair growth. And maybe try that Nisim shampoo that fights hair loss. There's also a possibility of getting your med changed to one without the side effects of hair loss.
