Best hair loss treatments vary. Your stylist can gear a certain shampoo to you that stimulates blood circulation and hair growth for thinning hair. There's Propecia, there's different internal things that you can take, which you might want to consult with somebody that knows a little better, a doctor, a hair replacement surgeon can tell you the side effects and so forth that internal medicines, they do work. I've seen them work, but something a little bit more topical that's safer for everyday use, it's not going to have any side effects or internal damage done. And then the most expensive and successful of thinning hair is hair transplants. And there's a lot of it going on in the city that you don't recognize because it's the ones that you do recognize that are bad and they come from bad doctors, but there's a lot being done now that are microscopic and you can't see and the scarring is like, hair fraction scarring. So you can almost take the hair all the way down to nothing and not even see where the hair has been transplanted, and that can go from anywhere from $10,000 to $30,000, and that's about looking somebody up in your area and making a consultation and finding out all the possibilities and all the information there is on thinning hair and where they are with it at this point. It's always a very educational experience and it's nice to know where you're at and what the pattern may be or what you have to look forward in the future, complete balding, partial balding, just thinning. So it's nice to get that information.

Also, as far as my clients go, and I'm being a hair stylist, I do recommend a vigorous, a lot of guys touch their hair if they're losing their hair very gently, and it actually is opposite. You want to invigorate the scalp and create blood circulation. So you want to get in there. It's not that you're going to encourage it to fall out. If it's going to come out, it's going to come out. But if you massage the scalp it's going to, it's like jacks it. It's like those things you put on for a heart attack, for boom. So it's sort of bringing it back to life. So you don't have to worry about, you know, "Oh, if I do it too hard I'm going to make it come out."

Oh, and oily hair is not good. Do not let your hair get oily, because the oil clogs the pores and can also deaden the follicle quicker. So keep it clean, keep it invigorized, and then, you know, take it from there.
