Subj: Herbal hair solution/shampoo
Hi, I’m a 26yr old male with history of hairloss (both sides of family) Mine is very minimal at the moment but will not wait for the inevitable. I’ve been viewing all your feedback and come to the conclusion that I will purchase procerin. However I’ve come across 2 other products I would like to ask about.. 1. Herbal hair solution. I see someone on this site has already asked about it and your response was you had no feedback but I will try and contact them and see what comes of it and get back to you. 2.Herbal hair Shampoo. A site called golden-reviews has compiled a list of there top 3 hair-loss products and named herbal hair shampoo as the cheapest and most effective of all. Was wondering if this is a similar product to Nisim Biofactors shampoo or just a load of bollocks?
AskDocWeb: Both Herbal Hair Solution and Herbal Hair Shampoo have only been on the market for 8 months or less. If you look at the pictures of Herbal hair shampoo you’ll see that the name on the bottles seem to be Zulvena. It’s too bad they had to use a competitor’s picture to sell their product. That makes us wonder about their honesty. Zulvena is from India and seems to be a “load of bullocks.”
Ho, just regarding regeneplex, their website indicates that Hairgenesis is a separate company that is licensed to use the same formula. That would explain the same information being on their websites. Is there any of information indicating this product is not effective? Thanks!
AskDocWeb: Not that we’ve read, then again there is no feedback on them either.
Subj: WellWorth Cosmetics
Have you done any studies on an herbal hair shampoo by WellWorth Cosmetics out of India called Zulvera herbal hair wash? If so what are the results? Thanks.
AskDocWeb: No we haven’t but if you have experience with any hair loss product, please share it with others here.

Subj: Natural hair growth institute
I have read much about the ‘natural hair growth institute’. What if anything do you know about it and if so, what information or opinions can you give? Thanks,
AskDocWeb: The Natural Hair Growth Institute is a for profit business originally started in March of 2004 by Steve A. Bennis. They went online July 25, 2005. They are listed with the Better Business Bureau but no report was available because information was being revised or updated. Located in Deerfield, Illinois, the company offers a non-surgical program to help men and women get their hair back. Visitors get their sales pitch in a spa-like (expensive) setting.
Subj: Good hair oil?
I have psoriasis from many years. I had on my head also. Due to some hard medicines of a doc, my hair growth has slowed down considerably. I am currently using Anoop Herbal Oil. I have heard of Mintop and Flucort Hair lotion also. Please suggest a good oil. Currently my head scalp is clean i.e. no psoriasis. Please suggest a good hair oil. Regards,
AskDocWeb: Sorry Karan, when it come to putting oil on your scalp, we have no recommendation. Readers are invited to make suggestions.
Subj: DHEA Hairloss
Please let your readers know that the DHEA Hairloss/Hirsutism Institute was recently founded for victims of DHEA, a dangerous dietary supplement that is called an adrenal steroid but almost all vitamin companies will not reveal that it is a steroid. They get around this by saying it is a hormone like melatonin so all warning labels are inadequate. We are already asking for people to be on the advisor board who believe the word adrenal steroid has to be mentioned on the bottle, that the dosages should not exceed 5mg, and that really the dietary supplement should be banned like in Australia, Canada, and Britain.
If AskDocWeb wants to be an advisor to the organization – we have to limit it to 30 people for our letterhead, he has to believe or subscribe to 2 of these 3 tenets – people Google in “Should DHEA be banned” and see what DHEA experts say about this dangerous supplement which is as easily available as chewing gum thanks to Orrin Hatch.
We are asking that hair loss sufferers and those that have become hirsuite due to DHEA contact and put out our website on other hair loss websites. According to a major publication, 50,000,000 Americans will be taking DHEA in the next 20 years. It will be a field day for companies promoting hair regrowth so really our strategy is for Congress to ban this and that is why the advisory board is being formed. We expect that the vitamin companies will like Pur vitamins saying it is an adrenal sterois to prevent it from being back to FDA regulated status but the jury is out. Ethics in a show me the money world is not very easy.
We have also let the American psychiatric association to ask its members to tell their patients which psychiatric drugs cause hair loss. The only good news there is that hair loss from psychiatric drugs is usually reversible but this is not possible with DHEA since it gets converted into testosterone and then dht and we all know about dht in the hair loss community. The American public has no idea what it stands for. Thanks you for your help.
AskDocWeb: We wish you good luck with your Institute, but we will pass on the advisor position. DHEA is one of the most popular sports supplements on the market today so you face a difficult endeavor. There is a lot that is still not known about this chemical and how it will affect users in their later years but some is known for sure. The use of DHEA in excessive amounts can lead to results similar to those with actual steroids. As with steroids, DHEA users can actually end up with cancer, infertility, heart troubles, even heart attacks and strokes. If children use DHEA, there is a possibility of stunted growth, which can affect body development. The side effects of DHEA, if taken for prolonged periods, are acne, irritability, hair loss, and heart problems.
For those wondering what DHEA stands for, DHEA means dehydroepiandrosterone (D-hi-dro-epp-E-an-dro-stehr-own), a hormone made by the adrenal glands. Of the more than 150 hormones made by the adrenal glands, the most abundant is DHEA.
