Hi Guys. I am a male in my mid forties who is suffering from male pattern baldness which has resulted in a 4 inch bald patch on my crown and mild recession at the temples. The bald patch looks ugly and makes me look older than what I am. I am also graying rapidly and my hair is quite dry, wiry and  frizzy. I believe the answer for hair loss comes from the sea and that is what attracted to me this site because the main ingredient seems to be kelp. I am always impressed by the good health of Asian hair which I attribute to their high consumption of seaweed. I know there are worse problems out their in the world and male pattern hair loss should be something to complain about but I would really like to grow me hair back even at my relatively mature age. Could someone please give me the follwing advice on:

1. Can male pattern baldness be reversed?
2. What products can I use to regrow lost hair?
2. Do I have to make the products myself or are they ready made?
3. How long will the products last for?
4. How long before I see regrowth?
5. Is Biofermented kelp the main ingredient?
6. How can I reverse my graying hair?
7. How can I straighten and smooth my hair naturally without chemicals, and
   which products should I use?

I want to use completely natural products without any chemicals>

I know there is no cure for the above problems but perhaps someone knows something that can help many people like me with these problems.

I wish everyone the best of health.

Before we discuss anything else, you need to understand that your statement "I want to use completely natural products without any chemicals" is not very useful, because the naural world is made of chemicals.

If you mean synthetic vs. natural, that is not a very useful distinction distinction. Natural chemicals can kill you, just as synthetic chemicals can benefit you.

Unless you accept this premise, there is not much that Skin Actives (or science) can do for you.

Hello there hannah,

I'm new to this forum and I've just read yours and Grateful's posts. I actually have similar problems to Grateful. I would appreciate it if you could answer his post as I would like to solve these conditions myself as well. I'm all for natural or synthetic, whatever nature and/or scince has to offer. By the way, I'm a male in my late thirties. Looking forward to your reply.

What I would suggest is that you stop using shampoo with sodium laurul (dodecyl) sulfate. Apply SAS hair serum to your scalp every day. Leave it as long as you can before rinsing. You should see a difference in a couple of months. If you don't, see your doctor and ask him/her to check whether there could be an underlying medical problem.

May hair is curly and I like the way it looks after using sea kelp bioferment as conditioner.  To uncurl hair the only think you can do is denature the hair protein and straighten the denatured hair. I think this is a bad idea because the chemicals used to straighten hair are bound to reach the scalp and damage the cells that make the hair. But that's my opinion, and I can understand that some people dislike their hair very much and don't mind the risk.

Hannah, what can I use to inhibit 5-alpha-reductase (which limits the conversion of testosterone into DHT. ) I need to block the DHT on my scalp.  I have a problem with receding hairline right around to below my earline. I did have thinning at the front but that has been addressed by reducing the testosterone component of my HRT pills. Im assuming I still have more testosterone in my system that needs to reduce, which as I said, is being addressed.  My hair is a lot better than it was six months ago, but Im still in a panic over the hairline receding...  HELP!   Oh yes, my hair is coloured (because it is patchy grey)  Not bleached though.

Before HRT and menopause I had ultra thick hair that had to be cut and thinned out every two weeks!  this is very distressing......

From our website, info on our hair serum:

Saw palmetto (Serenoa repens) sterols have been shown to inhibit 5-alpha-reductase activity, the enzyme responsible for conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone and to inhibit binding of dihydrotestosterone to the cytosolic androgen receptor.
