    There are so many causes and types of hair loss that it's impossible to give you any advice here. However, the general rule is, if it runs in the genes, there isn't really much you can do about it. You need to consult a dermatologist to see what exactly is causing the hair loss (sometimes, systemic illness may cause hair to temporarily fall out), and the dermatologist also needs to examine your scalp and hair loss pattern to see how exactly it should be treated.

    Ira: effective ba yung Regroe? sabila leaves?
  • IraIra Member PExer
    Yup, Regroe is effective in SOME types of baldness---your scalp needs to be examined first by a dermatologist before being able to know if it will work for you or not. My doctor-friend uses Regroe, and it's done wonders for his hairline.

    I'm not really balding but my hair is just congenitally thin and my hairline is kinda high but still "hideable". And if ever I'll get bald which I hope would not but I think isn't inevitable, it will be becoz of genetics. Will regroe still work for me? I'm only 20.

    Studies with minoxidil (Regroe) have shown good results in the treatment of androgenetic (male pattern) baldness at the top of the scalp. Best results are seen in patients who are less than 50 years old, and in those with recent onset (<; 5 years) and small diameters of baldness. I haven't seen you IRL, archangel, but I assume you fall under this category (androgenetic baldness, I mean). Nearly half of patients treated twice daily will have moderate to dense regrowth of the top of the head. But I'm not really sure with its effect on either sides of the widow's peak, where I guess you're developing baldness. Go see a dermatologist while it's reversible.

    Is Regroe pretty much the same as Rogaine, a lifetime commitment, once you stop treatment, all the hairs that you have grown will start to shed?

    Before considering any of these medications for baldness, it's best to see a physician and as Ira suggested, a dermatologist. There are many side effects with these drugs and you will also want to get an honest assessment of whether they will work on you or not depending on many factors - eg. pattern of baldness, etc.

    Stop worrying, Jack. If your worst fears come true and you lose most of your hair, there are a lot of women who think that bald men are sexy. Just look at Sean Connery. He was even voted People's Magazine's sexiest man of the year a couple, or so, years ago. Other examples: Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley, to mention a few. So, cheer up, man.

    Besides, most medications are not the "hair-raising" experience they are touted to be. ;)

    While stress may cause an increase in hair growth because of the stimulation of the adrenal hormones, I don't think it would be significant enough for anyone to notice.

    okay, i'm sharing a house with a rowdy bunch of guys, and i notice that everytime i step into the bathroom, it's like pubic hell, there's pubic hair everywhere... in the tub, on the toilet seat, on the floor... plus sometimes on the couch and living area. that's not a big problem though, since all of us are hairy guys and we make fun of it. but i wanna know how much shedding going on under there is normal? what causes it? i recently switched to boxers, will that help lessen the shedding?

    it's embarrassing sometimes for the caucasian guy we live with because it's eazy to trace the pubic hairs back to him coz he's a natural blonde. poor guy. and me, coz everytime i put out for my girl, well, you get the picture.

    i was having this conversation to this Doc who's speciality is hair transplant, ( i will post his website as soon as i get it) that propecia really stop the balding process. he said that it should be taken as a propylactic medication for men.

    he even went into in depth explanation of what causes baldness, in men, he said that the main culprit in hair loss in men is the converted dehydrogen testosterone, what the propecia do is to block the conversion of the testosterone to dehydrogen testosterone. the added benefit he said is the extra amount of testosterone floating around your body.

    my question,

    do you think it is a safe bet to try propecia even though i haven't notice any sign of hair loss on me?
  • IraIra Member PExer
    It's safe to use this for up to 2 years, but because it blocks DHT, you may develop certain sexual side effects like less desire for sex, difficulty in achieving an erection, and a decrease in the amount of semen. If you haven't noticed any baldness yet, I suggest you skip it first. It only works for certain types of male-pattern baldness.
