    There are currently 2 proven medicines that can help hair loss male (and maybe some female), especially those who inherited hair loss symptom from their fathers or grandfathers.
    1. There is a pill called Propecia, pink colour pill, this is supposed to stimulate new hair growth, in Singapore it can only be prescribed by medical doctors, most doctors are selling it now if you willing to pay, you take 1 pill each day, the side effect is it will affect your sex drive. 1 month of pills cost about S$90+.
    2. There is a lotion called Regain, this is supposed to reduce hair loss, in Singapore it can only be bought at pharmacy with a qualified pharmacist (example Guardian), you apply the lotion every morning on the area with severe hair loss. I think there are 2 versions of lotion, 2% and 5% concentration, 1 bottle cost about $70+ and should last 1-3 months, depends on your usage volume. This lotion is poisonous and is stated clearly on the box.
    3. Some chinese wll try the traditional chinese herb, example 何首乌, that is supposed to increase your overall body health and hence improve on hair loss.
    4. Of course there are those commercial hair loss centres, which is not cheap and the result is not proven, I think its better to try the proven medicine.

    But remember both the medicines (Propecia and Regain) will take a few months to see the effect, and if you stop using it then the hair will disappear very soon.

    Propecia (Finasteride) are not for women, Minoxidil however can be used, which available in many brands.

    Sharing my experience

    1. Do you know the secret to beautiful hair on the scalp is to go bald?

    2. Do you know that regular trimming will not slow down hair growth?

    3. Do you know a great nutrition is the most effective way of getting awesome hair?

    4. Do you know a special diet including removing of toxin from your body is necessary for hair growth?

    5. Do you know that using a blow dryer even with medium heat is very harmful to the hair?

    6. Do you know that you have to wash your scalp with lower temperature to stimulate hair growth?

    7. Do you know that scalp needs stimulation to clear blocked hair ducts, remove dead follicles so it can start producing strong, well anchored, thicker hair?

    8. Do you know that one proven method is to massage regularly with olive oil and then brush vigorously - best done with a short bristled palm held brush?

    9. Do you know that using the natural way by going bald regularly will get your hair back even more thicker and healthier.

    10. Do you know that in most circumstances you will be most likely making the wrong choice in medication either prescribed or unprescribed by any medical authorities in hair treatment?

    Bald is beautiful
    Do you want to be delighted to you discover that your hair starts to grow thicker and more beautiful?

    The question is whether you are willing to do the sacrifice
    instead of relying on pills and other non effective medication.

    For biolyn, tried it before and I wont comment on it's effectiveness. I would say all the different types of medication only work if you have certain types of hair loss. So find out what is really wrong before dumping the wrong medicine on your head. Besides just a thought, it has been around for so many years... if it's really that good,it would have been really well publicized as the next big thing. But after so long it's still just a off the shelf medication.

    To TS, trust me your hair is going to start dropping real fast and u better get help soon.
    bros , thanks for all the advise , actually i am quite stressful recently ,
    and slept late too , my whole family members do not have this problem , guess i need to see a doctor real soon

    That is a myth. Medically proven that shaving your head does no make the hair grow more.

    The sad thing is that the victim refuses to shave making all kinds of excuses.
    In the end the choice is to be bald from the top down and yet blaming himself for
    being so unfortunate.

    Shave it 4 to 6 times at an interval of 6 weeks. Soon the sunshine and happiness
    will come back to your face. Believe it or not is up to you. Hairdressers and all those
    in commercial medical practices will be nuts to reveal the truth for being in a profitable
    commercial enterprise.

    Good luck and good fortunate. You are what you believe!

    Aeskywan & Dommy,

    Being a victim of stress with the inability to supply enough nutrients through the food I consumed, the head naturally started to loose precious hair. It came to a point that I was fearful to even use the comb or brushed my hair with any kind of device. Worse the the amount of hair found at the bathroom floor after every bath sent me an almost killing electrical shock.

    I was dead doubtful that I could solve the problem unless I see the doctor. But it was otherwise - bearing no fruits with each visit having to bear with some instructions to use prescribed medicated lotions, hair shampoo including the Reactive Shampoo "Neril Extra" from Germany. Even went to the extent of using DIY medication prescribed by friends where I had to wrap the smelly resultant paste round my head before going to sleep.

    Two important events could help and the first should be to get rid of any amount of stress which was hinted in my earlier post. Next is to shave off all the hair from your scalp with a simple shaver bought from the Seven Eleven store. Within six weeks hair will be growing again, do it the second time and continue until you see that the whole scalp is full of growing hair.

    However for people with the top of the scalp leaving nothing but shining oily skin for more than 10 years this method will not work as the hair follicles in that area are no more healthy. Imagine making dead follicles to grow hair? Almost impossible isn't it?

    The shaving analogy will be famous soon if you are beginning to be aware that your hair are dropping fast without knowing a clue as to the reason for the outcome.

    Just sharing my experience but don't point a finger at me if this does not work for you. Every human being is unique in what is put into the brain, what is put into the stomach, and how one control his or her lifestyle including goals and ambitions.

    There is nothing to loose as you don't have to bear the huge medical expenses.

    Haa Haa....My sex drive too high so I take propecia to suppress it....
    But seriously, it works and can be puchased from Boots in Bkk for around S$70+. That was a year ago's price.
