SOME ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS
Male Pattern Baldness, also known as androgenic alopecia, is a very common condition among men. It usually begins at the temples and crown of the head but can eventually affect all areas of scalp hair growth. There are several treatments available that may help slow down or reverse hair loss in some cases. These treatments may include the use of medications such as finasteride, minoxidil, or dutasteride; laser devices that stimulate hair growth; and scalps massage with essential oils to improve circulation and encourages new follicles. Hair transplantation can also be considered if needed.
Female-pattern baldness is a condition in which the hair thins or falls out, often beginning on the top of the head or at the crown. It usually progresses slowly and can sometimes lead to total baldness. Treatment options include medications, lifestyle changes, and potential procedures such as scalp reduction surgery. Medications for female-pattern baldness include medication such as minoxidil and dutasteride, although these are not guaranteed to work. Lifestyle changes can include stress management techniques, dietary modifications, and exercise. Surgery may be an option for those who want to address the effects of hair loss quickly. However, it is important to consider the risks associated with any surgical procedure before deciding if this is the right choice.
Can Fenugreek Be Used for Hair Loss? Fenugreek is a popular herb believed to promote hair growth and add luster to hair. Studies have indicated that the plant may help to slow down balding and conditions such as alopecia areata. Fenugreek seed extract has also been linked to helping reduce dandruff and inflammation of the scalp, which can contribute to increased shedding.One way to use fenugreek for hair growth is by making a paste out of the seeds. This can be applied directly to the scalp with gentle massaging motions. Other methods include boiling powdered fenugreek and using it as a hair rinse, or adding fenugreek oil to your shampoo. Additionally, consuming fenugreek has been linked to promoting hair health from within. The herb contains essential vitamins such as A and C which are known for their benefits in strengthening the follicles, nourishing hairs and promoting cell regeneration.
What Is the Norwood Scale? The Norwood Scale is an established classification system of the stages of male pattern baldness. It consists of 7 distinct stages ranging from minimal hair loss to extensive hair loss at stage 7. The scale helps healthcare professionals diagnose and treat various degrees of hair thinning or balding in men. Knowing the Norwood Scale helps to identify how severe a man’s hair loss is and what treatment options are best suited for him. The stages of the scale also allow healthcare professionals to track a patient’s progress and response in relation to their treatment so they can adjust it accordingly.
Remedies for Hair Loss: Hair loss can be an extremely frustrating experience. Fortunately, there are many potential remedies that may help to slow the process of hair loss or even regrow some of the lost hair. Taking vitamins such as biotin and zinc, regularly massaging your scalp, using essential oils like peppermint oil and rosemary oil, eating a healthy diet and avoiding harsh chemicals on your hair are all possible solutions for improving hair growth. Other potential home remedies for hair loss include regularly using a gentle shampoo, avoiding styling products that are too harsh and trying irritant-free shampoos. There is also research indicating low level laser therapy and topical creams can help in slowing or reversing the effects of hair loss. Finally, acupuncture could be promising as a possible remedy to slow down the hair shedding process caused by DHT build up in the scalp.

This New Therapy Is the Future of Hair Loss and It’s Available Now
They’re called exosomes and aesthetic experts are using them for a myriad of skin and hair-related concerns and seeing impressive results in cell regeneration, especially related to hair loss. This potent form of stem cell therapy includes growth factors that promote wound healing by activating a patient’s own regenerative cell response, enabling new blood vessels to form, helping to feed the cells. “In general, regenerative therapy is very, very new,” explains New York dermatologist Julie Russak, MD. “Even though we are trying to raise awareness in a lot of different levels, in terms of how they’re changing cosmetic medicine and how we’re treating the body, regeneration is really what we’re focusing on.”
For thinning hair, Dr. Russak says her patients are seeing new hair growing in areas they thought were gone for good and many say they wish they’d tried this approach sooner. “By the time you notice thinning, you’ve already lost 30 percent of your hair,” she explains. Here, Dr. Russak breaks down how she delivers these active ingredients into the scalp to awaken the follicle and stimulate hair growth when hair follicles “quit.”
What is the difference between platelet-rich plasma and exosomes?
“The biggest difference in terms of understanding the parallel between PRP and exosomes is that PRP is comprised of our own platelets taken from our own blood. We activate those platelets when we open them up and we extract growth factors and signaling molecules from them. Growth factors are the molecules that stimulate our bodies to regenerate. However, those growth factors may be weaker depending on our age and health status. Exosomes also contain growth factors and other signals for healing and regeneration, extracted from inside the cell, except that it’s from embryonic stem cells. Those cells are brand new and have the most regenerative potential possible.”
How can exosomes help with hair loss?
“Exosomes have signal molecules in them that stimulate regeneration. When we age, it’s not only the cells in the skin that age, but also the cells in the scalp and hair follicle cells that age. As the scalp ages, the hair follicles that produce the hair also age. Basically, as they start working less and less, they produce thinner hair until they give up completely. We call this slowing-down process senescence, and what we want to do is basically give them the energy or the boost by signaling them to perk up a little bit and start working harder. That’s the whole idea behind both PRP and exosomes regeneration.”
Scientific breakthrough could help develop new hair loss treatments
Japanese scientists believe their work could open up new research avenues for the development of fresh treatment strategies for hair loss disorders, including alopecia, which affects both women and men.
By Tom Acres, technology reporter
New hair loss treatments could be developed thanks to a scientific breakthrough in Japan, researchers say.
The team, spanning a number of universities in the country, has been studying the process of hair follicle growth, hoping their work might contribute to the making of regenerative medicines.
A study published in the journal Science Advances reveals they have successfully generated follicles, which are essentially the anchors keeping hair on your scalp and elsewhere.
The follicles have been generated “in cultures”, the scientific jargon for under controlled conditions rather than in a natural environment, but now the researchers hope to replicate the breakthrough with human cells.
It could open up new research avenues for the development of fresh treatment strategies for hair loss disorders, including alopecia, which affects both women and men.
The team hopes their work will also contribute to the understanding of how and why some people suffer hair loss.
“Our next step is to use cells from human origin, and apply for drug development and regenerative medicine,” explained Junji Fukuda, a professor with the faculty of engineering at Yokohama National University (YNU).
How did scientists make the discovery?
Key to the breakthrough is something called organoid cultures – these are tiny, simple versions of an organ which scientists can make for the purposes of laboratory study.
These organoids are designed to re-create the architecture and physiology of human organs, whereas traditionally researchers would rely on animal models.
Tatsuto Kageyama, an assistant professor with the faculty of engineering at YNU, said they were a “promising tool” which helped the team produce such promising results.
