    Default some real reviews on Stimulair

    Hello remembers,

    I just joined this forum. I am 27 and started seeing some hair thinning. Looking at buying Nioxin solution but while doing some research I came across Stimulair. I see lots of review on the net but want some real review of the product. Anyone?

    What about Nioxin? Any suggestions.

    What about vitamins for hair, I have used Nature's Blend. Not sure if it helped or not but can't hurt being its all natural. Any comments about the vitamins?

    Only two things work -Minoxidil and Finestride. There might be other products that use these drugs as their main ingredients too. Don't waste your money on anything else. You could take all the vitamins in the world and still lose your hair. Any body who claims they have vitamins that can stimulate hair growth is a liar and a SCAMMER. If Minox or Fin don't work for you I'm afraid nothing else will.

    what about this:
    What side effects can this medication cause?

    Finasteride may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away:

    *

    inability to have or maintain an erection
    *

    decreased sexual desire <<<<< no thanks,
    *

    decreased volume of ejaculate (amount of semen)
    *

    pain in the testicles

    Dee, there are like one trillion threads on the subject of Fin and its side effects. So, it's up to you to read and educate yourself. But if you wanna believe everything a bunch of mostly crazy people say, then go ahead.

    Hair vitamins or any vitamins alone won't do anything about the hair loss, it may do a little about your existing hair's health but won't be enough to stop hair loss which is what all of us wants from a treatment. Minox and Finasteride may or may not have some side effects. Before you use it, consult with your doctor first. If you experience serious side effects and you feel uneasy about it, just stop immediately. With all these mixed reviews going around, it's really best to try it our yourself because what works for you may not work for others and vice versa. But for now, Minoxidil and Finasteride and Ketoconazole are the best choices.

    Default Before Buying a Hair Loss Product Consider This...

    People may be quick to point out that minoxidil and fenasteride are the only ingredients that work for hair loss but that’s not accurate. Not even these ingredients will work for all hair loss.

    What many of these “regrow hair in 4 months” manufacturers, like Rogaine, fail to draw attention to is the fine print in their product promotions that state, “helps reverse the progression of HEREDIARY HAIR LOSS”. It also states “NOT INDICATED FOR OTHER CAUSES OF HAIR LOSS”.

    Before spending any money on a hair loss product, understand the type of hair loss you have.

    The goal in any hair regrowth product is to suppress or block the DHT production that strangles the hair follicles causing them to shrink and fall out.

    This can be accomplished by using products containing ingredients like saw palmetto that suppress DHT production without producing the potential side effects of minoxidil and fenasteride.

    The rate at which these products perform, if at all, will be based on the root cause of hair loss by the individual, that individual’s overall health, how well the individual sticks to a prescribed regimen when selecting a product is just a few of the determining factors for success.

    These companies are in business for a reason and it’s not because they haven’t achieved success in some form with their product. If it didn’t work for some, it wouldn’t be sold or purchased and they wouldn’t be in business.

    Know your own situation…what may work for someone else isn’t a guarantee it will work for you. On the flip side, it may work well for you and not someone else.

    Hairness, I believe I've suffered side effects from finasteride.

    Can you explain how saw palmetto can do the same thing as finasteride, minus the sides?

    While this is true, the most common type of hair loss is hereditary hair loss, male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness.

    No one has ever been able to slow down, stop or reverse hereditary hairloss with natural DHT blockers. If natural DHT blockers actually could slow down, stop or prevent hereditary hair loss, they would likely have the same side effect profile as Finasteride.

    Nioxin does absolutely nothing to treat hereditary hair loss.
