Regrowing hair.
« on: December 31, 2020, 07:38:18 pm »
I was just prescribed my hormones regimen. I talked to my specialist about finasteride but he said with the hormones he's giving me it's more than enough. At the same time however he said I might have to resort to rogain where I lost hair. I dont have a bald spot but my hair is thin and my hairline is receding very badly. I'm all ears, I'm just so self conscious of my hair line and it feeds into my dysphoria.

I think all one can do is follow the doctors orders for a while and pray.
Pray like you never prayed before. That's the type of chances I think ones have with it regrowing from what ai see. There is no one medication that is certified to work.
It's a real luck of the drawy thing.
I hope it works out for you. Hair is so important.

Not the end of the world though. Nowadays there is really good ways past a half head.

There is also a link between hair loss and stress.  Reducing stress in your life is likely to help your hair.
In my case I had gray hair caused by stress.  Reducing it has allowed more black hairs to come in.

There are many components to hair loss. One of the bigger causes is Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Finasteride can help. I told my doctor that I was getting up to use the bathroom two or three time a night, which was true, so I was prescribed finasteride. I kept taking it even after I was prescribed estradiol and spironolactone. Don't lie to your doctor, but if you are having potential issues due to an enlarged prostate, then that may justify finasteride.

Rogaine, or a generic equivalent, may help. I used it for a year or two and thought it was helping, but it could have just been wishful thinking. It doesn't hurt to try, and it's available without a prescription.

Some people have reported a shampoo called Nizoral may also help, although it's marked to help dandruff. I used it for a while, but I don't know if it made any difference. Once again, it doesn't hurt, just don't use it more than twice a week because it really dries out your hair.

There are some supplements which many people feel help hair growth. Biotin is probably the most popular. In addition to hair, it seems to help strengthen nails. Many stores sell it as something to help 'Hair, Skin, and Nails'. It isn't expensive. I take some every day. I am fairly confident it is helping my nails, but I can't really tell if it helped my hair.

The one supplement I've tried which I truly believe is helping my hair is Viviscal. It isn't the best tasting tablet I've ever swallowed, it tastes a bit fishy. About a year ago my stylist noticed some new hair, and it's appearance seems to line up with when I began taking Viviscal. The tablets are not cheap, a package of 60 is usually around $33 - $35 US. The packaging recommends two tablets per day, but I have only been taking one due to the price. I have seen the product in WalMart and Target stores.

Currently, I am taking the 'Hair, Skin, and Nails' supplement with biotin, and Viviscal.

Love always -- Jessica Rose

UPDATE: Since going on HRT and taking Hair, Skin, and Nails vitamins with biotin, and rogain (also I use a scalp brush now), I've started getting fuzz where my receding hair line is. Im so stoked.

That is wonderful.
You might want to inquire about Finasteride when you talk with your physician, it may also be of help.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Finasteride is very effective in reducing the formation of DHT from Testosterone. A good predictor of the effectiveness of Finasteride is your DHT blood levels. If you have little or no DHT, Finasteride is not going to help.

While DHT is the most common cause of male pattern baldness, there are other causes of hair loss. If you do not want to guess and find out for sure what is going on, you need to see a Dermatologist.

After you see a Dermatologist, you also should see a surgeon who specializes in hair transplant. I had this done and I had only slight hair loss at the temples. Filling in those areas makes a world of difference.
