    No, that's drug addiction. As I said before the vanity part provides the incentive to begin - the drug addiction sustains it long after the peer pressure aspect is no longer relevant.

    I think you underestimate vanity as a driving force, especially when you're posting in a thread about male pattern baldness (which is really only an issue of vanity). Though good diet and regular exercise aren't as popular as medical authorities think they ought to be, think about how much less popular they would be if health was the only incentive. Being thin and fit is strongly correlated with sexual attractiveness all over the world. That is what gets, and what keeps, most people who do make some effort at diet and exercise motivated. Clothing, makeup, plastic surgery, orthodontistry - these things represent billions of dollars in the world's economy. All driven by vanity.

    But thats the point, it may be an issue for people due to vanity but its possible its a symptom of something else.

    Hair loss in an otherwise healthy person not receiving chemo or radiation, can be reversed amazingly by B 12 which helps the body deal with stress.

    The Matt Gardson's method may help.. it was very effective with regrowth of hairs on my front head. If you eat meat, you are getting enough B12.. eat more protein like meat or eggs or something or nuts ..

    What is kind of amusing is the obsession with trying to maintain something that's dead as soon as it appears from your scalp or the rather interesting factor that the Ancient Romans invented many ways of removing hair purposely for hygiene. (Why do you think most statues didn't depict a hairy man?)

    Yet for some reason the sudden loss of hair of the imminent loss caused by hereditary line seems to concern so many people. If you want to keep your hair, get a box to keep it in.

    Propecia is the best reasonably priced treatment option for MPB (male pattern baldness) at the moment. It can have side effects though. I believe the clinical trials showed that side effects occurred in around 2% of men. As has been said in previous posts, this drug works by inhibiting your bodies production of an enzyme called 5 alpha-reduclase, which basically binds with free testosterone and converts it into DHT (dihydrotestosterone). The hormone dihydrotestosterone is responsible for the development of male characteristics in males during adolescence - facial hair etc.

    Tieing in with what has been said previously about MPB only being a problem in men after the onset of adolescence (after testosterone production has been cranked up), dihydrotestosterone is also thought to be the hormone responsible for causing hair follices to shrink. Therefore, if you can reduce the amount of DHT in your bloodstream, by blocking the enzyme that converts free testosterone to DHT, the theory is that you will reduce the rate of MPB. The clinical trials of Propecia appear to support this theory, with apparently most men tested seeing a reduction in hair loss and a smaller number of men even seeing regrowth.

    I'm 26 and have been losing hair for a while. I tried Propecia for a few years and it didn't eliminate my hair loss, but it did appear to significantly slow it down. I made a decision about 6 months ago to come off Propecia however, because I was suffering from side effects including reduced libido and also more worryingly, cognition problems. Having come off the drug, I am no longer experiencing the side effects. Looking around on the internet however, there are calls from a number of doctors for further research into Propecia, because a number of people have reported that they experienced side effects that did not go away after they had come off the drug. This is obviously very worrying for people.

    There is research taking place into something called stem cell multiplication of hair follicles. A company called Intercytex based in Manchester, England were conducting clinical trials of a procedure which basically involved extracting hair follicle stem cells from the area of DHT resistant hair follices around the back and side of your head, then multiplying these follices in the laboratory and then injecting these follices into the balding areas on the top of your head. This seemed like a very good idea and if they could get it to work properly and bring it home at a reasonable price, it would be a massive breakthrough in the treatment of MPB. However, at some point last year, I believe intercytex sold this product to an American company. I'm not sure how the research has been going since then, but hopefully, fingers crossed, this will soon be a feasible option for people.

    You may be able to style your hair with the best hair care chemical products but certainly you may lose your hairs in the long run if you do apply harmful shampoos and conditioners for a longer period of time. I suggest if you face any problem with hair loss then do visit a good trichologist to help you out in finding the exact cause of hair loss and include nutritional supplements in the long run.

    I have some tips to prevent from hair fall.
    1. Use coconut oil on your hair.
    2. Carrot juice is best for hair.
    3. Vitamin A is best for hair strength.
    4. Add the paste of fresh Curry leaves to Shikakai powder and wash hair with this on a regular basis.
