If you have hair loss, please help others by sharing your experience with side effects. What would you tell your best friend about hair loss products? Please remember that we do not give medical advice. That is for your local health care provider, who is familiar with your medical history.


Mintop minoxidil 5%
10/27/2012
My hair has undergone thinning. Esp. At d vertex and along the side partition...hair lines are normal not receded. Will mintop minoxidil 5% will do gud to it?? Please reply. Iv started using saw palmetto as well. Will it b normal like before.
Rahul

AskDocWeb: There is a good chance that using Mintop minoxidil 5% will stimulate hair growth. However, it is unlikely that it will ever be like it was before. The best most people can hope for is to slow the loss for as long as possible.

I am using Minoxodil 5% twice daily and I am just starting with Nioxin shampoo, conditioner and the scalp renew treatment which I would have to do once a day can you tell me anything about these products and can I use them altogether. I am a female in my fifties with thinning hair.
Laura

AskDocWeb: There are about 5 pages of feedback about Nioxin that you may want to read before deciding about that product.


Revivogen?
1/19/2013
Hi. Can i get my hair back in my temples, if i use the product "Revivogen"?
Kristian

AskDocWeb: Revivogen has its own forum but there are only a couple of posts so far. And it doesn't look good for that product.


Excessive masturbation?
2/4/2013
My age is 22(MALE), I have masturbation habit two to three times daily form 7to 8 yrs Excessive masturbation causes hair loss is it true because i read following article

"Overdoing self-manipulation (masturbation) converts too much testosterone into dihydrotestosterone(DHT). High levels of DHT overload the body causing baldness and possible prostate enlargement if blood circulation is poor in the prostate area causing a build-up of the compound. Reducing the frequency of your self gratification will help maintain low levels of DHT and avoid hair loss."

I think Excessive masturbation causes zinc or other amino acids or micro nutritient deficiency because i read that semen cintain high amt of zinc, selenium, protein etc and that causes hair loss because in family background no one is bald please tell me any supplement/diet to overcome from it.

Can i take zincovit tablet daily to away from any deficiency. please suggest me any amino acid supplement to recover from it. Thank you.
Prajot

AskDocWeb: Zincovit is a combination multi-vitamin/mineral product containing 10 Vitamins and 5 Essential Minerals. You may find that it makes your urine a little more yellow but that's because zincovit contains B complex vitamins.

A moderate amount of masturbation is okay but doing anything to excess is by definition not healthy for you. Please see 7 Masturbation Myths.

AskDocWeb: If there is no family history of premature hair loss and you believe you have it then please get a medical physical. Premature hair loss may indicate a developing medical problem that might require treatment. You may also want to read about hair loss in Masturbation Myths.


Hair thickeners?
Date: 2/16/2013
Can you tell me if any of the hair thickeners i.e. hair cubed or topix are harmful to the hair? Thank you.
Don

AskDocWeb: Hair Cubed does contain some ingredients that may pose a health risk. Topix Pharmaceuticals produces a whole line of products so which one are you considering?


Optimum hair care?
Date: 3/9/2013
First off I appreciate the site. Thank you. My question is: If I am concerned with thinning hair how often should I be washing and or conditioning my hair for minimum hair loss? A couple of factors to consider are: I have curly hair which tends to get dried out and I am an athletic person who sweats daily when I run and work out. Thank you for taking the time.
-Riley

AskDocWeb: Working out an optimum hair care plan is something each person has to do for themselves because of the wide range of complicating factors. Here are a few of those factors:
  • The stronger your shampoo the less frequent you can use it without damaging your hair. Some shampoos support hair growth and others may cause hair loss.
  • Sweat glands secrete a combination of water, ammonia, urea, and salt onto the surface of your skin. The ammonia and urea need to be removed or unpleasant consequences develop. How often you need to do this varies with the individual.
  • There are also sebaceous glands next to the root of each hair that secretes a yellowish, waxy substance called sebum. If they make too much you have oily hair, too little and you have dry hair, which also affects how often you shampoo.
  • The medical condition of your scalp is also a factor in determining how and how often you wash your hair. This will be different for those who have dandruff or fungal infections.
  • Your environment is an important consideration. How much dust and pollution are you exposed to daily?
Those are some of the variables you need to consider in deciding how often to shampoo. Remember that hair loss can also be caused by stress and a bad diet so take care of yourself and good luck.
