Hair loss stimulator

Postby crownvision » Tue, 16 May 2006 7:14 am

hi all!!

for people experiencing hair loss problems and have tried different solutions but didn't help, perhaps you can try something called the "hair stimulator". it works on the principle of traditional chinese acupuncture to promote blood circulation to the scalp, thus promoting hair growth!

it's an electronic device which is very convenient and and be used anywhere, even at home. i've been using it for the past month and i think i see less hair in my shower sink now =)

anyone with similar experiences pls share. if you want more info can either post or pm me.

p.s. anyway in case u r wondering, i do not sell the hair stimulator :P

I wonder if you in some way do not shoulder some of the responsibility for such feelings Eric. In another thread I remember distinctly you saying: 'flight attendants have to be female'. Why, because they are young and pretty? Given the methods Singapore Airlines employs in order to select its female applicants no big surprise that women and for that matter men are conscious of their appearance. Since you are a marketing consultant I suspect you may well be condoning what you condemn.

Hi there. In answer to the question about stopping hair loss and replacing lost hair, the medical community at large pretty much agrees that:

-- there are only a couple of drugs out there currently that have been conclusively shown to stop hair loss in a reliable manner. These drugs are minoxidil (trade name Rogaine) and finasteride (trade name Propecia). Note, though, that these drugs will only protect the hair your still have; they will not restore the hair on the areas of your scalp on which you have already experienced hair loss. Ask your doc about these drugs.

-- when it comes to replacing lost hair, surgical hair transplants are currently the only proven solution. You can certainly try slathering any combination of herbs or tonics on your head, or subjecting your scalp to electrical shocks, etc... but none of these methods has any real backing whatsoever, aside from some (questionable) anecdotal reports. But if you decide to go through with surgery, be VERY careful about picking the right surgeon, as the results of a bad hair job are truly awful -- and permanent.

-- there are some non-surgical solutions, such as weaving and artificial hairpieces. Though the "rug" has gotten pretty bad press in the past, I've heard that many can end up looking quite natural. Sure, it's not your own hair, but at least you can skip surgery.

We're actually running an article on hair loss and replacement in our next issue, which is set to hit newsstands in Singapore any day now. If you're interested, look for Cosmetic Surgery & Beauty Magazine -- the blurb on the cover reads: "Being Bald Sucks". We also have a number of articles that we have run on this topics in the past, so anyone interested in getting back issues can just drop me a line if they like. Hope this helps!

I heard that you should not put the conditioner directly on the scalp. That will block the growing of the hair. And I also heard ginger is able to help the hair grow. There are some brands with Ginger shampoo. Maybe can have a try. :wink:

U can try Phytopollene from Phyto. Its gd for thinning hair. Phyto specialise in scalp care. As for receding area, it may b due to genes. Can try usin brush instead of comb to brush ur hair. It can improve in blood circulation n maybe can help in hair growth.
