    I don’t think you’ve done your research on natural oils such as jojoba and essential oils.

    These oils are not there to “cure” baldness/hair loss but are there to “treat” it instead just like the drugs you’re suggesting to use.

    There are a few essential oils that help to control the production of DHT and are also tested to be anti-androgenic.
    These are the same qualities that hair growth drugs have to treat hair loss.

    The carrier and essential oils cost much less, are healthier for the body, have been used for 1,000’s of years to treat hair loss, and have little to NO SIDE EFFECTS.

    As for jojoba, it helps to retain the moisture of the hair and follicle and to clean the scalp and follicles free from dead skin cells, dirt (dust), pollution, and excess sebum. (also helps to clean the hair and scalp from build-up of “hair product” use)
    Jojoba can also help to improve circulation to the scalp thus having more oxygen and nutrients to feed the follicles.

    You should do more research before trying to persuade people to use unnatural products such as propecia and minoxodil that haven’t even been tested for long term use.

    James,

    Thank you for your feedback. In fact, we have done our research. We do not deny that using Jojoba or other essential oils may produce a small cosmetic improvement and perhaps improve the overall health of the hair. However, one fact remains. There are only two clinically proven and FDA approved treatments for hair loss: Rogaine and Propecia.

    These two treatments, when used in combination, represent a balding man’s best option for retaining existing hair and, in some cases, reversing hair loss. Advising anyone to forgo this method of treatment (unless they are ineligible due to medical reasons) for any substitute would be to waste valuable time and valuable hair follicles.

    All the best,

    I hate to say it, but anyone with any small amount of common sense knows NOT to trust the FDA. They are in it for profit, not for the overall health of the person. They want to make money off as many drugs as possible. Using the FDA is assuming the readers are uneducated and ignorant. I agree with James. Even IF you’ve done your homework, you are trying to be pro-medication and I can’t help but wonder if there is some financial benefit for you to do so.

    After struggling with my hair for so many years, A friend told me of jojoba oil that I purchased.
    The result were not that fast as i thought because by then I happened to be pregnant. I did not give up and a few months I delivered and still continued to use the oil.
    Interesting enough I experienced the change immediately.
    Today both my hair and skin are very pretty.

    Hi Guys,

    Here is my opinion about the oil. First, Jojoba oil is great because its natural and doesn’t have side effects. Secondly, who would want to put their manhood at risk by using Propecia (finestride) and Minoxidil. I have read from many people on the internet saying both have caused them lower sexual drive/ arousal. Manhood is much more important than the damn hair.

    Hair Transplants are a good option at last in my opinion (Thanks to the new technology, at least I have a hope). But using hair oils such as Jojoba, Mustard, Rosemary, Coconut and Almond are not bad.

    I believe hair loss can be stopped to some extent with Scalp Massage, changes to life style such as getting enough sleep, eating healthy food, decreasing stress and doing some exercises. Also, maybe taking vitamins for hair can also help.

    I have done tons of research on hair loss on the internet haven’t found anything that can help except I have the above with no real clue whether they will work or not.

    I hope they do but even if they don’t there is no harm in using them. I hope I don’t get bald at least not till five years more or until i have some kids. I have loved my hair since I was 14 and I still have a lot of hair on my scalp. For the record I am living in Afghanistan.
