Vitamins and Hair Loss

Q: Hi Doctor, My mother is obsessed with my hair loss and gives me a whole bunch of vitamins and mineral tablets everyday to help regrow my hair. Do you think they work? Or should I stop them.

On the contrary, if you look at your family pattern of hair loss, you probably can find other male members of the family […]

Dear Dr. Mohebi, I was doing a quick research on the hair loss solution, that I came across your weblog. I wanted to ask you regarding my hair loss problem. I am 28, with history of hair loss in male members of my family. My hair loss started more than 10 years ago, and I started using Minoxidil (first 2% and then 5%).

About four years ago, I started taking Finasteride 1mg, and I think it worked out […]

Murad Shampoo for Hair Loss

Q: Dear Dr. Mohebi, I hope all is well with you and the family. I wanted to see your opinion about something.

My Doctor Is Going To Clone My Hair

I met an internist friend today and he asked me whether or not I do hair cloning for my patients. Obviously my answer was no. He mentioned that Dr. X does offer cloning to his patients and in fact plans on doing it for one of his current patients. My comment is this: The field of hair transplant surgery is a buyer beware market; just like any other fields in cosmetic surgery. I have heard many doctors calling themselves a pioneer on this and that technique. If your doctor told you that he or she is the inventor of some […]

I Shed Thick Hair

Dear Dr. Mohebi, How is everything Dr.? I actually came across something, which might seem a little silly to you. (haha) As the follicle deteriorates, the hair becomes thinner, correct? and this leads to the dying of the hair follicle and hair can’t be grown, right?

Thick hair means that the follicle is still healthy and contains the vital nutrients. Now to sum everything up, even though I still experience hair loss with decent […]
