TCM may help. TCM usually focus on putting your bodily functions right. At the very least, u can be safe from side effects. Heard of He Shou Wu? It can help hairloss....try doing a net search for it...but its not cheap thou...

Isopropyl, do u know which salon near Hougang sell Alpecin C1? Like to try it.... btw, is Manuka from bodyshop really gd? how much it costs? Thks.

i not sure if TCM will help. there are no creditable study and research on this. i hope it help but well, Yun Nun and Beijing101 is using 100% herbal treatment too. go figure.

i not too sure. but i suggest you ring up the distributor at 67463688.

i find the manuka shampoo pretty good. at least it good for inflammation and itch in my case. anything that is good for scalp health somehow contribute in slowing hair loss. it might be a little drying for some. you can try sebamed Anti-dandruff shampoo as it should be very gentle.

forgot to add in. Manuka shampoo cost about $14plus for 200ml. there are also 400ml bottle but i not sure of the price. it around $20plus.

haiz.. this have been answer many times liao. i understand this thread is getting too long for easy reading.

anyway, Nizoral come in 1% and 2% version. the 1% version can be buy in most guardian or NTUC unity pharmacy. for the 2% version, you have to ask the pharmacist for it. tell them you are using for dandruff. i got mine without prescription. they just allow me to have it. i not sure about others as i only brought it once. both come in 100ml bottle. remember you only need to use 2-3times per week.

for 1% it cost around $18.90. 2% version cost about $20-$22 dollars. normally, NTUC unity cost slightly cheaper. CGH pharmacy is selling the 1% version at $15.90. i not sure of the cost for 2% version at CGH.

I will just say only finasteride is the one that is worth trying. As for other treatments, they are not worth the money IMO. Unless you want to try hair transplant.

well, if one is daring enough, you can try flutamide. it is use for prostate cancer. flutamide is very powerful in blocking the activity of testosterone. side effect range from reduce in manhood, growing of tits to liver failure. normally, patient is given up to 750mg 3times a day. other than for prostate cancer, some doctor use smaller dosage for female with facial hairs. also, some male transexual use it to reduce testosterone before thier operation.

for hair loss, many use 2% lotion on the scalp. so far, most studies suggest that the effect for hair loss is due internal effect when being absorbed into the system rather than acting locally on the scalp. but the dosage is small so most likely it should be safe.

Splitting Proscar in 4

Been using Proscar for the last 3 months and already i'm seeing results. Hair is thicker (rougher too =)) and less hair loss. Problem i have is splitting the Proscar tablet into 4 equal sizes. I saw the diagram for splitting into 5, but how about 4? Tx.

splitting it into 4parts is fine. don't worry.

same as propecia, minoxidil, and nizoral, seriously i can't really tell is it working. although my hair is thinning, my hair loss is still in the normal range and i cut my hair really short so i really have no idea is any of the treatment i am using is working. somemore i am only using it for 1month. you need at least 6-12months to guage whether a product is working or not.

to add on, the uncle i mention that intro me to alpecin result is still holding up at the 5months mark after quitting propecia.

I think the problem with using a few products is that you have difficulty knowing which one works for you... Haha... I think I will get the shampoo soon to try out for a few months 1st...

wat! they increased the price of growell? crap.......must be a sudden increase of balding men in singapore.....hahaha.....but seriously if u feel minox works for u then u might wanna consider getting generic versions over the net......they are much cheaper even when u add in the shipping costs.
