Like many of you, I am also a victim of hair loss …..
More and more men in Singapore are losing their ‘honors’ and this trend may be getting younger. In the streets of recent years we can see a relatively young number of bald or bald men. Compare this phenomenon to say ten years ago, when this phenomenon is not often seen.
This trend of baldness among men in Singapore is causing an increasing spread of hair treatment centers. Hair care centers have practically appeared all over the island with places like Beijing 101, Yunnan, Svenson, Bossin etc. The causes of hair loss can be hereditary or caused by stress, medication, poor diet, greasy scalp etc. The reasons are manifested in the many forms or types of hair loss, such as baldness in male patterns, telogen effluvium, alopecia areata, etc. A normal human loses between 50 and 100 hairs a day, and this loss is not alarming.
But if more than this number is lost per Today, one must seek medical advice before it is too late. Hair grows out of the follicles and if you become bald and do not intervene, the follicles will eventually die and there will be no more growth. It will be too late for any action. Note that when I say bald, a human will not usually be completely bald, the follicles on the sides of the human scalp, the upper parts over the years are programmed to life, and the hair grows for life in these particular areas. Balding follows a pattern known as the Norwood graph. There are three stages of hair growth: anagen (growth phase), catagen (intermediate phase) and telogen (caste phase). Hair loss occurs as the hair grows and falls out quickly.
The average life cycle of a hair is 2 to 3 years, and each hair growth until the fall can last for 25 cycles, baldness occurs as these cycles accelerate and end so quickly that the cycles end, the follicles die and hair can never grow back. I understand in this post that there are many jargons and technical terms used. The Internet offers a wide range of resources that you can research in depth and understand more about hair loss. In this post, I roughly summarize what I understand and experience about hair loss from my personal studies and experiences. Previously, I had very thick hair volumes, which I complained about having to go to the hairdresser. often when my hair is growing so fast. When I shower, there would be no hair loss as my hair is so strong. After medical treatment for approx. two years ago in a reputable clinic and taking the nimigen drug, I notice hair loss, my hair falls into the bed for dozens and the bathtub sinks daily so much that I stopped taking this nimigen medication and stop laser treatments.
While consuming nimigen, my skin tone becomes too dry as it is supposed to prevent facial grease but is exaggerated. Today, I still don’t know the real cause of my hair loss, although I think it has significant to do with laser treatment and nimigen consumption. In hindsight, I should not have done the treatment and consumption of the medication, and this doctor still asked his nurses to force me to continue with the remaining treatments and at the same time refute all my accusations. I spent about $ 3K just to lose even more. Still, it’s already over and nothing can be done to delay the clock. What I want to share with readers here are my experiences and what I have been through to fight hair loss and hopefully it can provide some useful ideas or lessons for those currently suffering from hair loss. For starters, I stopped everything first. The reasons, I believe, have contributed to my hair loss, and that is to interrupt medical treatment and nimigen consumption. But even with that, two months later, the hair loss didn’t subside, so it was time to take a real action.
On the Internet, I discovered two drugs called Propecia, an oral medication that cost about $ 95 at the time for 28 pills, which would take one pill a day; and a topical hair spray called minoxidil (called Regaine, Rogaine, Growell, etc. in the market) also for $ 95 for a one-month bottle. I went to a doctor and they prescribed me Propecia, took one pill a day for three months, after which I stopped.
