Multiple vitamins, including biotin, have been promoted for hair growth, but solid scientific studies for many of these claims are lacking. While taking biotin and other supplements marketed for hair, skin, and nails probably won't worsen anything, it may also not necessarily help the situation. Therefore, advertised hair-regrowth supplements should be approached with mild caution. There is only anecdotal evidence that oral or topical application garlic , onion juice, saw palmetto, coconut oil, evening primrose oil , apple cider vinegar, creatine, and pumpkin seed oil are of benefit for hair loss.
One technique may help prevent hair loss during chemotherapy. It's called scalp hypothermia , and it involves placing ice packs on the scalp a few minutes before -- and for about a half-hour after -- chemotherapy treatment. Cooling the scalp reduces blood flow to the hair follicles, making it harder for the chemotherapy drugs to get into the follicular cells. Cooling also reduces biochemical activity, making the hair follicles less susceptible to damage from chemotherapy drugs. One concern with this technique is the risk of cancer recurrence in the scalp, as perhaps this area did not receive the full dose of medication due to cooling vasoconstriction.
Men suffering from hair loss generally have elevated levels of a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in their scalp. DHT is a chemical by-product of the male hormone testosterone. When testosterone gets converted to DHT in the scalp, the result is hair loss. Procerin's active ingredients are specifically formulated to block this transformation into DHT, and stop the hair loss that DHT causes.
Procerin blocks DHT without reacting with testosterone (as some prescription medications do). This can stop the further loss of hair from the scalp without the sexual side effects of prescription drugs like finasteride (Propecia). Men of all ages, and all levels of hair loss, can benefit from Procerin. Whether you are concerned about stopping hair loss before it becomes a problem, or already have significant loss of hair, Procerin can help.
