My dad is pretty much bald and so are all of my uncles, I know there's about a 95% chance, I'll be bald too. Is there anything I can do now, aged 18 to prevent hair loss or at least reduce it?
Hair loss (hereditary) occurs when eventually the hair becomes thinner and thinner with every cycle it grows out, in the end the hair follicles stop producing hair all together.
Because you are very likely to be predisposed to hair loss genetically, I believe there is not much you can do to prevent this, however you might be able to prolong the life of your hair follicles and therefore your hair, by stimulating your scalp with regular (daily) massage combined with the use of an over the counter hair loss products.
Since your hair loss most likely appears to be genetic, there's not a whole lot you can do about it unfortunately. Your follicles are being affected by DHT (dihydrotestosterone) in your body.
There are two main remedies to combat hair loss: Finasteride and Minoxidil. Although it has the most promising results, taking Fn in tablet form has several adverse effects, including impotency. It's better to be bald than to end up with some of the side effects some people have reported.
Minoxidil is often marketed at Regaine and is one of the only remedies on the market that can help prolong the life of your hair follicles and re-grow hair. The effectiveness of this, like with all remedies, depends largely on the individual person. It's also quite expensive but appears to be the best option short of a hair transplant.
Apparently Alpecin Caffiene shampoo works well but any research involving caffiene and hair growth is negligible at best.
Bald men sensitive about their lack of follicle endowment have been the target of several "cures" that never really work. It's just a for them to exploit you and make a quick buck usually.
To be honest, the best remedy realistically is to just accept your baldness and move on with your life, which is what most end up doing at some time or another.
A good diet plus biotin is good for hair and hair loss.
Well daily massage your scalps with almond oil(hot) or an oil rich with hibiscus extracts will reduced your hair fall within week or two.
Coconut oil, And protein diet is good for hairs.
You should take an proper diet, main problem of hair loss may be due to the stress and environment problem also.
Lol @ the broscience here. Get on Finateraside and Nizoral.
