Only thing that works for MPB is propecia, RU, rogaine and nizoral. Everything else is a waste of time

 

What about manuka honey? I thought I read something about that helping. Seems like my receding hairline gets worse every year, and I'm only 26. Maybe one day I'll consider a hair transplant.

 

Manuka honey lightens your eyes 



why did you decide that it is MPB? Drop zones are not typical of MPB

 

Only hair disease with no cure. There is also complete hair loss, but then our eyebrows and hair on the rest of the body would fall out too.



I'm 26 too and will be considering a hair transplant in the next few years I think. It's not quite bad enough to go that route yet, the ladies still like me for now.

 

Don't won't give you a transplant unless you are on proepcia because your hair would continue to recede after the transplant

Is there any risk, insofar as hair loss is concerned, in regularly taking a multi-vitamin that contains B5? I am currently considering "Garden of Life, Vitamin Code - Men's Multi," which contains 20 mg of Pantothenic Acid or 200% of one's daily recommended value. Is there any benefit in taking L-Cyestine alongside this particular multi-vitamin? I have a receding hair but it is mostly genetic. Still, I do not want to do anything that could make it worse.

 

No risk. We took 500X that dose.

Update- hairloss continues, mostly at the temples and crown. Medications gave me to many side effects so I am using toppik on the crown. When I graduate university this year I will take my first paycheck and get SMP. I"m tired of wasting time and money on supplements, went that route for three years. Regarding sex, I have lots of it, but don't ejaculate. It makes you strong in the gym and very creative, but it never did anything for my hair.

Found these, still trying to access full papers. http://www.ncbi.nlm....les/PMC3500072/

Although integral hair lipid (IHL) plays essential roles in hair morphogenesis and formation of lipid envelop of hair cells, their roles on ultraviolet (UV)-induced photoaging in human hair follicle are poorly understood. In this study, we investigated the photo-degradation of IHL in human hair follicle. Organ-cultured human anagen hair follicles were irradiated with UV, and IHL metabolism was studied. We observed that UV irradiation decreased the free fatty acid contents, but increased the ceramide and sphingomyelin contents. The expressions of genes related to lipid synthesis, including acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC), fatty acid synthase (FAS), stearoyl-CoA desaturase (SCD), and sterol regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs) were also markedly decreased. These results suggest that UV radiation alters IHL in human hair follicle and IHL may play important roles in photoaging of human hair follicle.[/size][/font][/color]

Integral hair lipids (IHL) are thought to have major roles in structural integrity of hair shaft, and hair biology. However, there are scanty of reports that reveal the importance of integral hair lipids in hair photoaging. Photoaging of hair represent as a change of hair texture and hair photoyellowing in gross spectrum.

This study was aimed to evaluate the change of integral hair lipid caused by acute UVB damage in experimental setting. We collected the normal hair shafts from the healthy volunteers whose hair were not manipulated with various treatments such as hair perm or permanent waving for last 6 months. The hair samples were cut at the level of 4~5cm above from the scalp surface and were separated into two groups; UV treated and untreated group. UV treated hairs were irradiated with UVB lamps for 96 hours in 0.35 mJ energy. After the irradiation, HPTLC and LC-Mass were performed to determine the composition change of IHL. Also, we evaluated the amount of IHL changes according to the age. We defined older and younger age group by older than 40 years and younger than 40 years, respectively.

As a result greater changes appeared in older age group and the main difference was free fatty acid composition. Therefore, we could suggest that hair photoaging may cause decrease of free fatty acids and this change is greater in hair shaft of older age group.
