I think most thinning hair problems are due to lifestyle n diet,premature balding is due to genetics~

If your hair loss is not due to high stress levels or undesirable lifestyle habits and diets, it will boil down to your genetics

The docs in the hospitals will tell you that there are only 3 things that are scientifically proven to help combat hair loss if the cause is genetic.

1) Minoxidil (topical hair spray)
2) Propecia (oral tablets)
3) Hair Transplant

Minoxidil costs about $35 per month
Propecia cost $3 per day (about $90 a month)
I dunno about the surgery cos its really out of my league.

However, minoxidil and propecia may or may not work for everyone.
Its not a 100% effective solution.
Plus, you will have to take them for life to keep your hair.
Stop the medication and the previous results you have got will just fall off.


I dun really trust those commercial hair treatment saloons. Just way too ex and no concrete promises. (had a not so nice experience at a reputable one, my bro-in-law also tried it b4 but no results)


Maybe you can try to work on your lifestyle habits and diets first.
Dun worry too much abt the hair loss. More stress = more loss
And dun scratch your scalp too much.


If you really wanna visit the doc, get a reference letter from a polyclinic. (think abt $20 for consultation)
The specialist docs will cost abt $60+ per consultation. (excludes the medication)


Hope u will find this useful.

Why skin centre?
if u go GP, they also can't do much. they are not specialised.
go nsc for blood testing, hair bulb analysis. the dermatologist are specialist.

My Tips.

Anyone know how to cure thinning hair?You know,giving it more volume,making it thicker?I've had this problem since my hair started growing i guessAlthough i heard that a bad diet can really affect hair growth and my diet is really really bad...malnutrition .So,other than eating properly,any advice on what to take?

1) Take finasteride (propecia/proscar). Get a doc who is willing to precribe proscar for you. They are not that difficult to find. Propecia=$90 a month. Proscar= $30 a month. Propecia increases DHT (a derivative of testosterone). DHT is needed to maintain erection, this is why finasteride reduce hardness.

2) Do engaged in regular aerobic exercise session lasing 20-30 minutes to improve blood circulation. They work better than any scalp massage.

3) Wash your hair at least once a day with a anti dandruff shampoo like Nizoral or Head and Shoulder.

4) Eat more fruits and vegs and reduce sat fat and trand fat intake, they clog up your blood vessels and reduce blood circulation.

pray hard that you are not suffering from MPB.. if so, there is nothing much you can do at your age unless you are happy with the present size of your little brother..

go for a check up at NSC is a good idea. there might be other under lying cause.

Threadstarter if u can afford it then seek treatment at national skin center.....or u can wait till u enlist NS n get referred there for treatment for free......wat the skin center can do for u is to give u a correct diagnosis of wat causes your hair loss prob n from there they will recommend u solutions.

Alternatively like wat was mentioned in an earlier post there are 2 proven medication/treatment for hair loss which is minox 5% n Propecia. For Propecia u need a prescriptiion n side effect is decreased libido........

For minox 5% spray u can get it over the counter at pharmacies like Guardian. Currently u can find 2 brands, Regaine n Growell. Regaine is imported so it cost ard $120+ for 1 bottle(last 25-30 days) while Growell is locally produced so it only cost $58.80. U can also get generic versions of minox 5% spray from american websites.......cheapest i found cost US$30 for 4 mths supply. Include shipping fees total wld cost ard S$80.Been using minox spray for the last 6wks or so......notice that some new strands of hair has started growing on my bald patch.

Lastly never ever go to those places like Yun Nam or Beijing 101........they are the biggest "legal" scammers to exist in singapore......10 out 10 ppl whom i know that went to those places to seek treatment b4 told me it never works...........

I m not too familiar wif biolyn....from wat i read abt it is that it increase hair folicies(not too sure of the spelling). I think biolyn is more of a product to improve the state of the hair n prevent balding but not to cure already existing balding problems. My recommendation to u is to try minox 5% spray(growell or regaine) for 6-8mths 1st....if u see your balding situation improves then continue the usage. If not then stop usage. Normally u have to use for at least 4mths b4 u can see results. Bearing in mind u have to continueously use the spray for the results to stay u can actually downgrade to the 2% version(cheaper) of the spray as a form of maintainence in the latter stages.
