Not Hair Loss News – Is the Stamina Foundation Selling Fake Stem Cell Treatments?

Snippet from the article: Read the rest — Meet the con man selling fake stem cell treatments to children Stem cell clinics are seemingly appearing everywhere. Why? The answer is plain and simple MONEY. I was just invited to join such an organization and of course, I declined. Let the buyer beware!

6 Months After My Hair Transplant, My New Hairs Are Growing But Am I Seeing Shock Loss Around Them?

It does sound like it might be shock loss, perhaps somewhat delayed for the first round of it. The progressive hair loss that occurs in all of balding men can get accelerated by a hair transplant surgery. I usually prescribe finasteride (Propecia) for my patients to minimize this impact. Were you on this medication? If […]

My Hair Hasn’t Grown in 2 Years

What you’ve described isn’t something I’ve encountered before. Hair cycling occurs in everyone and it usually cycles each hair in about 2-4 years. Hairs grow in the anagen phase of the hair cycle. Could it be that your hair cycle is just extremely short? If that were the case, new hairs are continuing to grow […]

Consultation Follow-up About Bulk Measurement and Density Count

I received a follow-up from a patient after he met with me for a consultation – I used the term miniaturization in your case. There are two ways to determine what is the quantity of hair and the quality of the hair on your head. Miniaturization is a visual way to estimate the quality of […]

Earlier this year I noticed my hair seemed thinner and a miniaturization exam revealed diffuse loss on the top of the scalp but not the sides or back. It was modest loss, only visible under harsh lights, but my hair definitely felt less dense.
Nearly three months later after consistent Propecia use, I could swear my […]

If hair cloning is a viable option in the future (perhaps in 15-20 years since I know the time line keeps moving every year) would you expect to see a large number of people elect to have a hair transplant for the sole reason of increasing overall hair density? If the amount of available donor […]

Dr. Rassman,
I appreciate your blog. I’m a 24-year-old male who started experiencing thinning and hair loss on my crown shortly before my 20th birthday. I started taking finasteride after my 22nd birthday and experienced fantastic results. However, I still have a somewhat large area on my crown that is much thinner than the surrounding areas.

Thanks a lot for your time!

I don’t buy into this false notion that women look at balding men and see their hair loss as a sign of virility. Do you believe that women who have bald fathers are more accepting of bald mates than women who have fathers with full head of hair?
Bald men aren’t more virile (we posted about […]

Is There an Evolutionary Reason for Losing Hair at Certain Ages?

Hi Doc,
I have been wondering, what if any evolutionary reason was there for males going bald at as early as their 20’s and a lot more during their 30s and 40’s?
My speculation is that this trait becomes apparent well after puberty and sexual maturation, therefore it does not affect the passing of the genes. […]
