Is it true that saw palmetto can prevent hair loss,and in some cases,even regrow hair? Thanks.

Saw Palmetto is a herb which grows in the the southenr states of the United States. It has been used in the treatment of protrate problems because it is a natural inhibitor of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It is DHT that causes androgenic alopecia - male pattern hair loss - in genetically predisposed men and women so, theoretically, it could have a positive effect on hair growth. I have not, however, seen any convincing clinical studies to show that this is the case and, very importantly, even though this is a natural substance and may sound harmless care should be taken with the quantities taken because of possible side effects. Only use the levels recommended on the container.

Jennifer asks:
I am 20, and for the past year and a half I have had long extensions, there have been times when I have gone a few months without wearing them, but I am very addicted to them, I love going out with my long blonde hair, I feel great, and if there not in, I will not go out. I have had my extensions out for about a month now. My hair was not in the best condition to start with, very fine and quite split, but now after the abuse I have caused my head, ... I am not going bald!, but I can certainly tell that I have a little less hair than I used to, because of the constant pulling and glue application! I know I need to keep them out, but I do not feel short hair suits me, is there anything you can recommend to help strengthen my hair ?

What a shame that you feel that hair extensions have caused damage to your hair. Extensions are usually very safe and if applied correctly with the correct bonding there really should be no effect on your natural hair. I have been wearing extensions for almost 10 years because my hair is very, very fine and have never found that my hair is thinner. Sometimes you get the feeling that your hair is finer because you easily become used to the extra thickness. Take a look at the HairMax Laser Comb. If you do want to give your hair a rest, then I would suggest you start to use a hair thickening/loss professional product called Nioxin. It is an amazing product that actually helps hair to grow to its maxim strength. It is only available in professional salons.

I have a problem with itchy scalp that has caused hair loss and my hair is in a constant state of breakage no matter how much I condition or treat my hair. I am a licensed cosmetologist who has been looking for a trichologist in my area but can not find. Could help me please? Lost in Spartanburg South Carolina, USA.

This sounds as though you have suffered a reaction to chemicals. Do you use chemicals on your hair?
