Just had a nightmare about getting a huge ass bald spot on my head. I guess I'm subconsciously paranoid about losing hair.

Maybe some of this hairloss could be stress-related?

u guys using Nioxin are u using the #2 program or w/e the 3 bottles?

i bought the one with the shampoo, revitilizer, and the foam for scalp, but there's no exact instructions on it? i just use the shampoo, then the revitilzer once a day, i havent began using the foam yet because i dont want to start using it if it's somthing i'll have to continue from here on in..

also if i do start using the foam, u guys think it's ok to use at night when im sleeping?

i only bought the shampoo and conditioner (cleanser and therapy). supposedly i'm suppose to use both everyday but i use the conditioner about 3 times a week since the conditioner is used last and it makes my hair oily faster. i'm using system 1 because the stylist said i don't need system 2 when i myself think system 2 is good. for all you people out there losing hair, make sure you have enough vitamins to keep your hair strong, which is what i'm doing everyday now. i take multivitamin pills.

My boss recently sent us an email on the special properties of Honey and apparently it's believed that a concoction of alcohol and honey (in small amounts...of course) will promote hair growth.

Someone try it out and report back!

Proscar and Propecia are the same thing (finasteride)... One typically used for hair loss, one for reducing prostate enlargement... Both are due to testosterone, and the medication essentially affects and enzyme resulting in the reduction of the conversion of testosterone to its active form...

There are alot of people who cut proscar 5mg tabs into quarters and take 1/4 of a tablet instead of the propecia 1mg tablets, and alot of patients have given me pretty good feedback about it...

Rogaine 2% is available over the counter and people have had decent results as well... probably not as great as the proscar/propecia, but some people don't like the idea of taking a medication... Also, if you have a third party insurance plan, they will most likely not cover over the counter products like rogaine, but will likely cover proscar tablets.

up to you

to be honest I recomend proscar to anyone and everyone with thinning hair, i've been using it for probably 2 years now, and just recently i've been using Nioxin, my hair is seriously looking awsome, it no longer looks "thinning" besides when i wear a hat and it gets matted down etc.

other then that it looks great!

In addition to prescription drugs, you could always look into herbal/natural supplements. You'll find that supplements used to ward off prostate cancer are linked to hair growth/retention as well.

I contemplated taking Proscar for a while too, but the negative thing about these meds is that once you start, you have to take them for the rest of your life to retain your hair. For most people, health benefits specifically do not cover meds for male-pattern baldness. I know that eventually I'll need to do a Lex Luthor, but for now, I'll stick with using a number #2 razor for the next several years. (Fortunately, I have the right shape for a bald head.)

Check this out - dateline review of different hairloss treatments:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JDFSxcTDyg (part2)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJ0AaoVttO4 (part3)

Mind you these are mid 30's-50 year old men who did the trial. Fantastic results from a laser comb and pretty cheap comparatively ($700 one time fee)

Where do people get their rogaine supply? Seems pretty expensive from london drugs ($50). I wonder how legit will ebay stuff be.

instead of a laser comb, they should make a laser hat. that way, you get more laser shining on your hair, which would make it grow longer faster, while you're concealing your bald head!
