Issue by Tennis4life: Noticed palmetto for hair loss?
I considering of taking observed palmetto to help my hair decline problem, but I’m clueless about whether I must use it orally (oil) and/or Topically (cap). How robust need to the dose be: 320mg, 500mg, 3000mg? Also, does Aloe, Arnica,Birch, Burdock, or Catmint quit hair loss? Any other low-cost/easy approaches to support?

Take in nutritious meals with heaps of fruits and greens.

Drink 2000 ml of liquids including drinking water in 24 several hours.

No other medicines will help.

  1. Use Minxidil 5% . This is a hair spray and only medicine for hair loss approved by FDA . good luck

  2. You’re just spinning your wheels, Bubba!
    There’s nothing you can do.
    Genetics rule – you cannot re-program genetics.
    Accept the inevitable & get on with the rest of your life.
    Life is not always the way it’s supposed to be. It’s just the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.

  3. You take it orally.

    It is supposed to help enlarged prostate
    but i cannot see how it helps hair loss.

    DHT probably encourages growth rather than loss.


  4. Well first off, just talk to your doctor. He/she can run a few labs to make sure its not a medical problem, or a vitamin deficiency etc. Ask if they would check your androgen, DHT, and testosterone levels, as well as any other hormone pertinent to hair loss. You may request a referral to a dermatologist as well. A dermatologist can prescribe some meds to help, such as spironolactone and/or finasteride. But seriously, do talk to your medical doctor at least, it could be something like thyroid disease.
    Saw Palmetto (probably 500 mg would be fine) is known to work for some people by reducing systemic DHT. Also you can buy Nioxin shampoo at Walmart; it has ketoconazole in it which is a mild topical DHT suppressant. You need to leave it on your scalp for as long as you can while showering to get the most benefit. However, if DHT is not your problem then neither of these will help.
    Rogaine is supposed to help too but 8% of the users do not get results. Its kindof greasy and if this bothers you, then take a shower at night, apply before bed, then wake up in the morning and rinse your hair out. Then around 4 or 5 PM apply again, then wash your hair before bed and reapply again. It has to stay on for 4 hrs to be effective. OBTW, the walmart equivalent is just fine, same active ingredient and less expensive.
    I don’t know about those other supplements you mentioned, however you might consider taking a B Complex supplement. Sometimes people are deficient in B12, which is not in the B complex. If that is the case, then you would need to take a B12 Sublingual (not the regular kind) about 500 mg/day.
    Ensure you are eating a healthy diet and drinking plenty of water. If you are taking any kind of supplement to assist in muscle growth, check side effects.
    I am female and had my bouts with hair loss. It can be futile! There are several kinds of alopecia out there. I just got a biopsy on my scalp, they told me its traction alopecia, so now I at least know what battle I am fighting. If things get so bad, you might do the same, but I will warn you, it kind of hurts for a few days.
    If things don’t go well, at least you can always shave your head and still look like a guy. I don’t have that option. I wish you the best of luck!

    Try these home remedies :

    Red henna is beneficial in treating hair loss problem. Smear henna over the scalp and
