All the fact about Hair Loss and Baldness Cures

Hair loss has become a common condition now and it affects people at some point or time of their lives. However, hair loss due to hair shaft breakage is different in comparison to the hair loss that occurs with the decrease in hair growth.  Especially, the hair loss in midlife is found common in men and women and this has psychological and emotional effects.   The point here is that can baldness be cured as advertised by these magical remedies.

Women hair loss is to forty percent and this may be devastating at times. Men are also not spared and they also suffer in midlife the hair loss problem, but yet are not looking bad, but in case of women, it seems to come to an end. This has made women susceptible to look for various cures to solve the hair loss problems. Thus, they are spending money in lots, besides time and there is a big lot of investment done on ineffective treatments.

Recently I read a book called The Hair Loss Cure. Here is the few points I got from the book. It is said that even men losing hair feel highly depressed and suicidal, says The Hair Loss Cure author, David Kingsley. And the same with women losing hair is traumatic affecting their presence in their social life or with their partner or spouse.

Today the treatment of hair loss industry is immense and is no way smaller than the over-the-counter flu and cold market. In fact, it is estimated as $3.5 billion industry today with respect to hair loss treatment and the fact cannot be denied that it is 99 percent failure, say experts such as Kobren. Actually, what is that causing hair loss in midlife and what can be of help and is nothing but a trick to grab attention.

The reasons for hair loss

The basic reason to make the treatment effective is on knowing the cause or reason for hair loss. Why it is falling out from its place. Now, there are several reasons to lose hair for both, men and women and these include:

  1. Stress
  2. Hormones
  3. Heredity
  4. Missing Nutrients/poor diet
  5. Hairstyling services using chemicals
  6. medications
  7. Surgery or high temperature
This is also due to a combination of factors. In some it may be due to stress and medications or a recent surgery. Baldness in males is due to intersection of heredity and hormones.  This happens to men having genetic reasons to (DHT) hormone dihydrotestostrone.

Differing to these views, Kingsley the author states that the genetic hair loss is believed to have no ties to your parents. Kingsley says, ‘A recent research shows how girls take to follow their mother’s father and the boys their father’s father’. Yet, it is an assortment of both.

Conversely, a licensed trichologist, Sophia Emmanuel, who is a professional well trained in head and scalp treatment and care in the New York city says, ‘The first step is to find a dermatologist or a trichologist so that they diagnose the main reason for hair loss’.

 The diagnosis of a dermatologist or a trichologist may include testing nutrient deficiencies in blood, scalp examination that includes a skin biopsy, shapes and patterns of hair loss and gathering lifestyle, medical and family information.

Knowing the main reason for hair loss is important so that you are free to choose the right treatments that help in regrowing new hair or in maintaining the hair you have now.

Treatments of Hair Loss

Emmanuel and Kingsley, both experts note that there is a myth regarding the hair fall and it is that it is not permanent.

In case stress or nutrient deficiency is the cause, the hair loss is temporary. The hair growth may be promoted by solving the underlying problems. This can be done by promoting iron levels, building zinc in the body and managing stress. Definitely, these will consume few months to show progress, but it will show progress and hair growth.

On the other hand, Emmanuel says, ‘genetic hair loss is permanent and gets triggered by scalp scarring’. Scarring is due to tying tight pony tails or on using chemicals for hair styling. This is a problem that may be reason for hair loss in African American women believes Emmanuel.  She also believes that scarring may be triggered due to autoimmune disorders.

Korben also has a word regarding hair re-growth and it is that women with autoimmune or genetic related hair loss have the least options. Minoxidil (Rogaine is the brand name) is FDA approved and this is only to maintain the existing hair and can be only used in a 2 percent concentration, yet it does not support re-growth of hair.

Korben asks to buy minoxidil over-the-counter and to save money. Minoxidil is added to expensive shampoos by lots of companies and Korben says, why pay more dollars when minoxidil is directly available at regular pharmacies for much less price.

Men have more options even with hair loss that is genetically driven say Korben and says Finasteride a drug is great in hair re-growth in men. It is produced by Merck, the pharmaceutical giant and is marketed as Propecia. Finasteride blocks the dihydrotestosterone creation that fuels the baldness in male and trials have proved that it can thicken men’s hair.

Generally, men hesitate in taking Finasteride fearing side effects and now recent studies state that there is the likelihood of the side effects continuing even after the medicine discontinuation.

Details on Surgery

Men consider surgery as the right option to combat male baldness. It is about moving the resistant DHT hair to the scalp areas that had previously DHT sensitive hair.  Thus says Kobren that the success in this procedure is predicated in men and not in women as the DHT sensitivity is a rare problem and they never gain benefit for a long term from this surgery procedure. Women become target when they are highly vulnerable and some despite aggressive marketing person makes them a target. It is also observed that Surgery is the first place women go says Kobren and he strongly advises against it.

In fact, men also need to be cautioned as the surgery success is based on the training and quality of the practitioner performing it. Here, the entire cosmetic surgery field is dangerous and is now gaining high prominence due to the hair loss numbers increasing in men and women.  Kobren also says he knows a gynecologist promoting himself as a specialist in hair transplant. In the wrong hands, it will traumatize further and disfigure a sufferer of hair loss.

Korben launched a group ( the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons so that they assist in identifying licensed and expert practitioners. He also informed that the organization received more than 900 applications and has accepted only 65 people for this quality work.

He advises people to find out people in their area interested in transplants. He also cautions that it is only the beginning and no person listed here can be confirmed as the right practitioner for a client.

The ideal thing a person can do is do some homework before going for a surgery such that he can talk to specialists, read online reviews and meet people on whom they have worked on. It is important to ensure success in surgery.

Equally it is important to know the surgery price.

Kobren says, ‘The average surgery cost is 2000 grafts” and grafts is somewhere between $ 5 and $11 each graft. This means it refers to $20,000 as a minimum investment.

Other “Cures” and Myths

Laser therapy and Platlet rich plasma therapy are two emerging promising therapies, believes Kobren, and yet is not ready to support any. He says, ‘I have no evidence of how it works such as clinical data’, though the anecdotal evidence appears promising.

Kobren says, ‘The miracle cures shown in the ads such as thickening shampoos are not true’. In fact, even effective therapies may be ineffective if the root cause and treatment fail to align.

Three myths highlighted by Kinsley

Myth1: Everyday washing your hair causes hair loss is wrong, says Kinsley. Do not be scared ‘It does not make your hair fall out’.

Myth2: Shaving head makes hair grow faster, but actually it does not, says Kinsley.

Myth3:  There are quick solutions to resolve medical issues, says Kinsley. This is apparent when a person takes medicine and becomes normal under control. But with hair loss, there is nothing as you can fix the problem or put on the scalp.


  1. Very few men get great results from Rogaine. Finasteride is more effective, but even then, there are a decent number of outliers. It almost feels like playing the lottery sometimes... one of my friends is dealing with it himself, and had to resort to a hair transplant. He still shaves his head, and this is the article he said he got advice on getting clippers from.
