I can speak with great authority here, as I had a full had of hair on my 21st birthday, and on my 22nd birthday, I was completely bald. I must have ALOT of DHT receptors in my scalp. The thing that worked the best was saw palmetto extract. Too bad I was already half bald before this discovery. LOL And the good news is theres two types of DHT receptors and this wont mess with the ones in the wrong p[laces of the body. Hence, the problem with Proscar lowering ALL DHT. And its side effects because of that. And I did Nizoral shampoo and Proscar also. Hands down saw Palmetto is the stuff.

Get something standardized though. Like at 90 something percent pure or better.

This was the brand I used before. Take two of these bad boys a day and your beard will stop growing.

DHT is definitely a factor in male pattern baldness...the main factor. There is also Estrogen and Testosterone fluctuations and underactive Thyroid. Blood testing can show these problems. It's good to try to keep things under control, but without the use of Dutasteride or Propecia (Proscar). I got gyno from Dutasteride (Avodart) years ago and had to get gyno surgery because of it....forget about that one.

I take these every day, twice per day:

I also take a good Biotin supplement. While these things do help, your genetics will eventually win out. I've been fighting hairloss naturally for quite some time, but it's now time to step it up a notch. I'm sticking to topical stuff (Promox) and will keep using the herbal supplements as well.

I like Nizoral every other day (taking it everyday will dry out your scalp. I think it helps, but it's not enough anymore. I'm going to do all I can to keep my hair and I'll update on how it goes. This is only something to hold off hairloss until something better comes along....

It is interesting ask. To start with the answer is ‘YES’. I will strongly suggest hair transplant if you have already gone bald. If not, I will like to suggest a different course of action. I will suggest you to go and see a hair-expert dermatologist. There are many treatment including medical therapy, Laser therapy, PRP therapy, Minoxidil, etc. So before someone goes for an invasive treatment one must get proper checkup done.

Why not want to implant your hairs. Hair Transplant is the prefect solution for it. If you don't want to implant your hairs better options are also available such as minoxidil, PRP therapy, Laser therapy, SMP . I suggest you to consult a good doctor before making any decision for treatment whether non-surgical or surgical.

It might be time for a new look.
