Subj: HerbalHair Shampoo
Do you know if this product HerbalHair Shampoo is any good?
AskDocWeb: Sorry, we don’t know. There are hundreds of herbal hair shampoos on the market. You can even make your own Herbal hair shampoo.
Subj: Propecia and Advecia?
Are there possible interactions using Propecia and Advecia together?
AskDocWeb: We are aware of no dug interactions between Propecia and Advecia.
Why is regeneplex not recommended?
AskDocWeb: We only recommend products we believe will be beneficial to consumers.
Subj: Premenopausal woman
I am a 53 year old premenopausal woman with a receding and thinning hairline for six or more years due to genetics. My dermatologist has recommended only Rogaine, which I have used for at least five years. I now read on this website that Rogaine is not effective for the hairline. My doctor says that once I am in menopause that I can try Propecia. I am not thrilled with taking a medication and prefer natural remedies but the key is I am willing to do what works. What is your recommendation for what I should do that would be most effective?
AskDocWeb: Studies show that better results are achieved with a combination of hair loss treatments rather than just one treatment alone. The best hair growth treatment for you might include an internal treatment such as a multi-vitamin supplement combined with an external treatment such as a hair re-growth treatment shampoo (Nisim).
If you are taking any drugs that may be contributing to your hair loss, you might ask your doctor for alternatives (See Drugs that cause hair loss). Check your diet to make sure you are getting the nutrition that is required for healthy hair growth. Hair loss can occur if the diet is inadequate in the vitamin B6, biotin, inositol, folic acid and minerals like magnesium, sulfur and zinc. The B vitamins, especially B5 (Pantothenic acid and B3 (niacin), are especially important for hair growth. On the other hand, taking large doses of vitamin A (100,000 IU or more daily) for a long period of time can cause hair loss, but stopping does reverse this problem.
Subj: Losing hair quick
What is the best way too get your hair back? I’m losing it quick at the age of 20.
AskDocWeb: We suggest you visit a dermatologist to determine the cause of your hair loss before deciding what to do to get it back.
Subj: Hair loss has been reduced significantly
I have been using Procerin for last 2 and half months and my hair loss has been reduced significantly. I have ordered 6 months more supplied of Procerin today. However I am not too sure if I am having hair regrowth, coz I haven’t seen new hair on my temples. Would you please recommend a hair regrowth product along with procerin?
AskDocWeb: Yes, Nisim Biofactors is a shampoo that fights hair loss.
Subj: Raw unprocessed petroleum
Hi, I’m 24 and for the past 4 years or so I’ve been experiencing thinning hair and alot of hair loss on the top of my scalp, not my hairline, I’ve heard that raw unprocessed petroleum would make your hair grow back. Would you happen to know if this is true? Where could I get something like this if it actually works? What would you suggest I use to at least make my hair thicker? Thanks for your help,
AskDocWeb: Raw unprocessed petroleum is a gooey liquid that contains hundreds of different types of hydrocarbons. With all the consumer protection laws we have, it is doubtful that you will find this on the market.
Subj: Scalp Med
I see you have two “non-recommendations” for scalp med but you do not comment why. Could you please explain your findings? Thanks,
AskDocWeb: Scalp Med, like Avacor, seems to be an expensive source of Minoxidil.
Just wondering if anyone has used Biohairs and if so is it any good? Regards,
Subj: Pros and cons of injection
My dermatologist recommend the injection on the scalp for my hair loss. What are the pros and cons. Also have you heard of Hair Sequence?
AskDocWeb: It is difficult to comment without knowing what your dermatologist would be injecting into your scalp. Your dermatologist is supposed to explain the pros and cons of any purposed treatment.
The Hair Sequence process custom blends your own hair with human hair. It is one of the more expensive processes with prices starting at $2,500.00.
Subj: Best hair regrowth shampoo
Hi, I am a 23 year old girl who is suffering from hair loss in the forehead area. I am undergoing for thyroid treatment and my testosterone is high as well. I would like to request you to recommend the best hair regrowth shampoo and I would also like to know if Advecia and propecia has any side effects?
AskDocWeb: You can read about the side effects of Propecia here and Advecia here. For a hair regrowth shampoo we suggest you get Nisim Biofactors.
Subj: No change
I used follinex for three month now and no change in my hair I’m very disappointed, It didn’t work for me, I’ll give it four more weeks before stopping, I’ll let you know then.
Subj: R H Restoration Hair
Hi I need you to check, or if you ever heard of R H Restoration Hair. It is A herbal Hair oil, A shampoo/conditioner and vitamin B complex. They claim it is an ancient formulation from India. In their instructions they claim that you will see results after the 3 applications. The ayuvredic formula instructions are first week apply serum 3-5 a week, then apply serum 2-3 times a week. Some of the ingredients are: Hydrocotyle asiatica, aclipta alba, cyprus scariosus, pilocarpus jaborandi, arctium lappa, centella asiatica, azadirachta indica. They have 2 internet sites. They are located in Richardson Texas. Please advise if you have any info. Thank You!
I am a female with underactive thyroid and I am taking 150mg of Levothyroxine which has caused severe hair loss. I am considering taking provillus as the reviews I have read seem to be pretty good. Would the provillus have any effect on the Levothyroxine. Kind regards.
AskDocWeb: We would be concerned about taking anything that affects hormone levels while on Levothyroxine and the saw palmetto in Provillus would do that. Please check with your doctor before taking any supplement.
Subj: Would it be wise?
Hi there, thanks for the great site. I still have a lot of hair, but recently I’ve noticed that if my hair gets greasy, the parting on the top of my head is noticeably larger than before (almost looks a bald spot, using two mirrors, but not quite). When I stand under a bright light, I can see a fair amount of my scalp. I have been losing a lot of hairs in the bath and shower recently, and my hairline has ‘matured’ into the usual curved shape, I’m not sure I’d quite say it was receding. I also have a history of MPB in my family I don’t want to overreact, but would it be wise for me to start trying something like Procerin to try to prevent any hair loss? Is there any reason (other than financial ones) not to? Many thanks,
AskDocWeb: If you are being treated for any hormonal problems then check with your doctor first. Otherwise there is no reason to delay. Remember, the best results are achieved when hair loss is treated early.
Subj: Can’t grow decent facial hair
My name is Jake, I am 21 years old, and I can’t grow decent facial hair… I have little on my face, neck and chin, but it’s all pretty thin and white. I was wondering if it might be safe to use rogaine or other minoxidil products on my face to try speed up my facial hair growth, and achieve a beard.
AskDocWeb: Yes, you could do that but once a beard starts growing it is likely to continue growing so be sure that is what you want.
Subj: Best product to restore hair
I’m a young man losing my hair on top and I haven’t got the right shaped head to pull it off. Could you please tell me what would be the best product to restore my once lovely hair? Thanks,
AskDocWeb: That depends on the cause, when a young man has a problem with hair loss it can indicate a health problem. We suggest you first get a physical to rule out thyroid or other medical conditions that may need attention. If you are healthy then start with the simple solutions (and least expensive), make sure you are eating a balanced diet and use a shampoo that fights hair loss. Give it a few months and if the hair loss persists, then try Procerin (a supplement) and save Propecia (a prescription drug) for a last resort.
Subj: If you stop
Hey if you stop taking this will it make it worst?
AskDocWeb: No, the hair loss will just go back to normal loss.
Subj: IHT-9 (Intensive Hair Therapy)
I heard a lot about the Herbal Hair Shampoos from India, they really work. Recently I bought IHT-9 (Intensive Hair Therapy) shampoo form LASS COSMETICS from their online store. I am very happy with the result till now and recommend it to any one with hair fall problem.
AskDocWeb: Congratulations, you are the first.
I’ve been using follinex for four months now and no change I notice that I’ve been getting nausea.
Subj: Laser combs?
What are do you think of those laser combs? I am a 29 year old woman. Do you think it works for female pattern baldness?
AskDocWeb: We still have doubts about laser combs. It is disturbing that some companies claim FDA approval but don’t tell you that the FDA approval is only in regards to safety and not effectiveness. Read more feedback. Hair Loss – 14 – 15 – 16 – Page 17 – 18 – 19 – 20 – Last page 40
