    A new theory on hair loss - why Hair is never truly dead and bald men can regrow their hair back naturally

    It is first worth noting the following: Humans are the only species that experience "Male Pattern Baldness" - there is not any other animal species (let alone mammalian species) that has the males of that species experience rampant hair loss: It makes absolutely no sense why males of a...

    Oral vitamin D3 may treat steroid-driven hair loss

    A very interesting study, which demonstrates that a relatively low (5,000 IU) oral daily dose of vitamin D3 for 6 months, may be able to treat gender-specific (driven by steroids) hair loss. Now, the study participants were all female, with female-pattern hair loss (FPHL), however the findings...

    Topical Quercetin for hair loss

    Hi guys, I remember some studies about onion juice being effective for hair loss. Recently after seeing that DHT biding to receptor is mainly the culprit of MPB but not DHT by itself. I thought that the active ingredient in onion quercetin could have some positive effect on hair loss. I...

    Is getting buzzcuts or short haircuts Peaty ?

    I think we should have a discussion on the importance of hair to metabolic rate - as some of you may recall I had the following email exchange with Ray: Q: I notice when I wear a cap or any type of headwear I get a great boost in temps/metabolism and feel serotonin lower a lot - I feel a...

    Omega-3 EPA and DHA may be the solution to "male pattern baldness" / hair loss in men

    Follow up to my previous post on Omega-3s and Peat's flawed perspective on them (they increase dopamine and reduce learned helplessness i.e. high serotonin): https://raypeatforum.com/community/threads/peat-wrong-about-omega-3-dha-epa-increase-dopamine-and-lower-serotonin.41873/ Recent research...

    Why DHT doesn’t cause hair loss - My response to Kevin Mann

    Kevin Mann attacked me in one of his vids a while ago, saying that DHT is a trash hormone and that I don't know what I'm talking about. He clearly believes that DHT is harmful and that finasteride is awesome, despite a ton of scientific papers and anecdotes showing that DHT is very much needed...

    Massaging fasica in scalp promotes hair growth (?)

    Just putting this here. Any ideas? I am in a private FB group for people who use the Fascia Blaster for other issues, mainly cellulite and tightening skin. https://www.ashleyblackguru.com/pages/hair-growth#offers The results are real and sometimes shown by members of the FB group(s).

    Stress (cortisol) causes hair loss

    Amazing study, which perfectly corroborates the findings of a previous study showing that estrogen (a cortisol promoter) also causes hair loss, while administering an estrogen-blocker reversed the hair loss. Administration of androgens (known cortisol and estrogen blockers) such as testosterone...

    K2/Kuinone/ Aromatase and HAIR LOSS

    Used to have extremely thick hair around 1 month ago, I have seen rapid decreasing. Think it might be k2 since I take alot daily. Apparently the fact that it inhibits aromatase is the reason why it effects hair. Is aromatse necessary for hair then. I am going to drop k2. HOW LONG do you think it...

    Scalp

    Hi guys, I have a very noticeable sensation on my scalp that almost feels like when your arm falls asleep and starts tingling. I am 27 and have been experiencing hair loss for about 6 years now. It is incredibly surprising to me that I can’t find any info on this tingling sensation as it is so...

    All These Threads On Hair Loss Go Nowhere Because....

    ....because what we really need is feedback from those who HAVE their hair - a survey or study on their health, habits, diets, fathers/heredity, etc. How we go about doing that I don't know, but I could guess, there wouldn't be found anything markedly different about them then those who've lost...

    £14 shampoo is used to treat hair loss associated with COVID‐19

    Dr Fisherman might want to consider that the DHT theory is bogus. 'They are sulphate free, no dangerous chemicals to harm people's hair and they are very rich in lots of good stuff such as biotin, caffeine, rosemary, niacinamide, argan oil and, more importantly, they possess DHT blocking...

    Topical DHT therapy promotes hair growth

    Despite mentioning it in another post on testosterone (T) treatment for hair loss, I thought that this study deserves its own post, just because its findings are so contradictory to the perennial dogma of "androgenic alopecia" - i.e. that androgens, and especially DHT, cause the male-pattern...
