    ROFL you dont sound like a shill in the least bit. Just an interesting conversation on the treatment options for hair loss is all I'll admit im curious about the product if it REALLY does work or not.. But being the skeptic i am i feel everythings bullshit till it happens to me lol

    Well if there are any free samples, you'll be the first to know @TripleP . I know it's a sensitive subject for some men and women.

    @Bipolar2 did you use the mousse or a different formulation? While it's not perfect, it does offer some help and especially with the thickening part. I feel the mousse works better as far as not making the hair feel oily. Most products on the market, including the professional ones have the same basic ingredients and pretty much work the same. My doctor who is a woman uses it and while it's not perfect, I've seen a dramatic difference in her hair as far as being thicker and less of the scalp showing through. As a hairdresser for 33 years, I've seen a lot and this is by far the least "painful" with some positive results! I've heard about transplantation, etc. but it's very invasive, expensive and painful. I have two female clients that ultimately went with wigs, which I have to say, some are very beautiful and you'd never know they were wigs! Anyway, my sister suffers from alopecia areata and unfortunately Rogaine doesn't work for her. There are many ways to deal with hair loss but I have seen in my business that women are especially more sensitive to this as our hair is our "crowning glory". Very hard! My men clients (including my hubby) keep their hair very short which I feel is a better look, especially if the thinning or hair loss is primarily on top. I know of three of my men clients that went the Hair Club route and they were very happy with the results. So there are options out there, it's just finding what works best for you and makes you feel most comfortable! Good luck to all and thanks for reading my "2 cents"!!

    Guys please let's stick on topic and stop bating or picking n people you don't now for no reason. More bating at people and picking on others for no reason out of the blue will get you temporarily or permanently banned

    it really really can be...I had (thankfullly temporary hair) loss due to hormonal problems and it was horrific, I was so self conscious every time I went anwhere, it really knocked my confidence to shreds. I suppose that's why peeps might be sensitive on this topic. I know little about male hair loss but is any hormonal treatment available for men?

    Hi @Molly W , I'm not aware of hormonal treatments taken by mouth, but there a couple of topical treatments available for both men and women.

    Not my area of expertise, but I can look into further if you would like.

    thanks @Allycat ...the problem is sorted now for me it was some meds I was taking that affected my hormones so when I came off them it did grow back. But I'm sure others would welcome your advice.

    It was one of the most anxiety provoking things ever...which can seem minor when there could be so much more seriously wrong with you, but I just think the way you perceive yourself and feel about your body completely changed...truly horrid. My sympathies with everyone who has this, if you can laugh about it's great (as H20shed65 says, laughter is the best medicine) however I can completely understand those who can't. Best of luck with your treatments everyone.

    hair follicle growth. Per the article 90% of men and women in the clinical study experienced hair growth in 16 weeks. It can be purchased with out
    a doctors script, it is pricey however, approx $400.00. You use it 3 times a week for the first 16 weeks then maintain with 1 to 2 time a week
    for continued hair growth. As with most technology, I'm sure it will be refined and most likelywill see a price reduction in the future.
    Don't bother, I've known too many that tried those things. I don't think they work. I've researched the bejesus out of it.

    Finesteride is the best bet to hold on to what's there and it's cheap. Some people it works magic. There's no shampoo or what have you that helps. Don't spend a bunch of money on that. Tea tree oil shamppoos supposedly helps a bit and it's cheap enough. There's some evidence Nizoral can help a tad. It's cheap via alldaychemist.

    Surgery, very pricey. My brother had plugs done, still looks lame if you ask me. Way to much money. I am holding onto mine ok considering. I take that proscar. About 14 months. Time will tell. I don't think it helped me grown any but maybe holding on. Rogaine did not work and it has SE's like BP spikes up and down. Redness, etc. Blech.

    Once it's gone, go for the Mr. Clean look or Sinead O'Connor.

    That laser comb thing has actually been around a while.

    I just wanted to say that I take a small 2mg of testosterone a day for reasons related to my teeth, and my hair as a 53 year old woman is great. Thicker than it has been for decades.

    Wonder if the same is true for men? Any guys want to comment?
