Well after months of praying, one of two answers came.
They had completed successful clinic trials to prove that it works. This is a small hand held home use device that you use every couple of days for 15 plus minutes. Not completely bald, spot on my back head was now full of hair again, what had become a very thin. Fact, rogaine 2% was just released on the market. I’m sure it sounds familiar.|online?|Sounds familiar?|doesn’t right? This was a pical solution used on your p head twice daily. After a couple of months I realized it worked on my back head. Yes victory is mine! I’m sure you heard about this. HairMax Laser Comb to give it a try since they spent money on research to prove it works. Lexington International made a hair laser called the HairMax Laser Comb. Now let me tell you something. The front was still thinning and receding on the sides. Online info can be found easily by going on the web. Well almost.
Propecia was a 1mg once a day tablet that I started to take with my morning vitamins. Well in treating the prostate the scientists and doctors realized that it was re growing hair on balding patients. Do everything you can to stop your hair loss to save what you have and hopefully regrow some of what you lost. The great thing about this day and age is you have options, regardless of how bald you are. Propecia’s main ingredient was Finasteride, which was used in the treatment for an enlarged prostate. It is a much easier process to save the hair you do have verses losing it all and then trying to get it back. They did the research and the clinical trials and the end result was the first and only pill to treat hair loss. My goal is to educate fellow hair loss patients on hair loss and to let them best know options to stop their hair loss and regrow hair.
My battle with hair loss started back in college almost 20 years ago.
I stopped, my hair was still thinning and receding. One thing was for sure, I was going to do everything I could to keep my hair from falling out, what was in store for me, who knows. I found a Canadian company that had a shampoo, conditioner, and a pical solution used for hair loss, right after weeks of research. Fact, never did I think I would have to worry about losing my hair. Looking back I now understand why. My grandfather was bald on my mom’s side and my dad has thin hair in the front and a bald spot in the back.
After realizing what was happening I was back in the mirror every now and again studying the situation and telling myself that it is going to stop receding. The hair was thicker and full of color and growing. Within about four laser using months comb I could tell that my hairline was looking stronger. There was just one problem, it drove me crazy having to lay there using the device every other day for almost 30 minutes. You should take this seriously. This was my first time researching options like ‘nonsurgical’ hair replacement and hair transplants. Now I actually made an appointment to speak with someone, just in case if I was to lose my hairline, I wanted options. I slowly started to use it less and less, I didn’t have the patience to sit there and use the device for that length of time. Spending time in the mirror I also started to spend time on the Internet searching for options.
The rake device did bring back my color hair, the products they used were crap.
It did bring the color back and I believe it did slow the hair loss down, the treatment period wasn’t enough time to let me know if it was stopping the hair loss. Back then I had long hair and after a shower I would always comb my hair straight back. Did you hear of something like this before? Well I started to notice that I had ns of small hairs that would stick up straight while quite a bit of my long hair was combed straight back. It was like the hair loss switch was turned on, it was going at an extremely fast rate. Furthermore, it was hair receding and falling out, Well it was the exact opposite. I was a college student with no money, I couldn’t continue the expense treatments because. Prior to treatment, the hair on my p head almost looked translucent.
Well it was happening, I was losing my hair. My brush was full of hair every now and then and my pillow had hair on it also. When losing your hair you start to shed more and grow less. I want to ask you a question. Have the ingredients been researched and successfully used for hair loss? On p of that, ask yourself, does it make sense, when researching hair products. Generally, there are loads of products out there to treat hair loss and plenty of them don’t work. What have I learned from my experiences? Now pay attention please. The shower drain was no picnic either.
The main ingredient in Rogaine is Minoxidil, which was used to treat high blood pressure.
At the day end I was still losing my hair and I was still averaging a hour a day in the mirror studying the situation and I still kept looking for answers. After clinical trials the first and only pical solution for hair loss was released on the market. He ld me to massage my head and use a shampoo and conditioner formulated for thinning hair, and that product was called Nioxin. Well doctors and scientists realized that patients on this medicine were ‘regrowing’ hair. I started using it and I use it to this day, it makes sense to use a shampoo and conditioner that is made for thinning hair.
It idea made sense to me and made me want to give it a real trial, the device has never gone through clinical trials like Rogaine, Propecia and the HairMax Laser Comb. My personal clinical trial proved successful.
Within a couple years or so of using the Rogaine another medicine came to market.
The day I realized it was now available I went to my doctor for a script. On p of that, after that I didn’t worry about my hair again for almost 8 years because it worked. Using combination the Rogaine on the back of my head and the Propecia stopped my hair loss and I actually regrew hair in the front. Then, it was funny because he didn’t know what it was so we had to call the drug company to get the prescription information.
Well seven years ago something changed. Overall, I couldn’t believe it was happening to me. That said, it was receding. Just think for a moment. My hairline started to slowly recede again. For example, there is no way I could be going bald. Have you heard about something like that before? The hair was getting shorter and shorter and was changing color to a weak, translucent look. What got me noticing it again was when I would comb my hair back I began to notice short hairs on the temple. That’s where it starts getting interesting. Oh it is going to stop. The hair in the front was getting thin, invisible looking, limp, and it was receding at a rapid rate.
That got me looking again for the device I forgotten about, the glass rake.
When I was losing my hair I kept and still do research. If you try Kevis 8 and it doesn’t work don’t give up. Products All we carry for hair loss we believe in and have tried ourselves. Although, quit using Kevis 8 and try something else. EBAY and I bought it. During our different testing treatments we carry I saw it personally. It is impossible to find a specific hair loss treatment that works for everyone. Just because one product doesn’t work for you doesn’t mean another shall not work also. In my search for the glass rake I found out its true name the Darsonval Violet Ray. Considering the above said. There are nobody hundred percent’s in medicine. Of course it was a happy day for me.
At the time I didn’t even know what it was called, I just knew I wanted one. Laser hair therapy is using a low level laser to stimulate the hair follicles to produce hair. It is interesting that both Hair Club and MHR recommended laser hair therapy. In the end, I had no luck finding a violet ray but I kept my eyes and ears open. One company stood out, it was Lexington International, in my research I found numerous companies that made some laser type hair comb, even full head laser devices used in clinics. The business closed down, Looking back I laugh because calling thought the place that treated me to figure out name of the device the name didn’t occur to me until it was o late.
Back then the Internet was new so the only way I knew how to look was in papers, books, magazines, and on TV.
Look at my experience with Propecia. Was it less effective since I had been on it for so long? Not sure. Maybe it is just my age and I am supposed to lose my hairline. At least I was able to add the HairMax Laser Comb, and later the violet ray, to slow the recession to almost a stop.
