You are on page 1of 35 Search inside document How to Keep What you have and fill in where it is thin. Introduction If you downloadd this book, or are merely browsing through its pages, you're probably one of the twenty to fifty million men in the United States who, to one extent or another, suffer needlessly from thinning hair and baldness. What's more, it's all too likely that you've already been burned by someone peddling false hope, and that because of your miseducation, you despair of even preserving your hair, no less restoring it. Or, you may be the mother, wife, sister or daughter, girlfriend or mate of such a man. I bring you good news.
The follicles on the scalp and face are the largest, hence the scalp and beard hairs are the thickest and longest of all the hairs on the body. The follicle contains the hair; it does not generate or sustain it. Its role is to provide a protective sheath for the hair. Figure 4. A section of the scalp. The sebaceous glands are little sacs attached to the follicle that secrete an oil called sebum. Sebum flows through the gland duct and empties into the mouth of the follicle, giving the hair shaft its gloss and richness and making it pliable.
Sebum also keeps the skin surface soft and supple. Overproduction by the sebaceous glands can bring on a common form of oily dandruff, or scaling of the upper layer of the skin the epidermis. If excess sebum clogs the pores of the skin on the face, it can cause blackheads and pimples. A small involuntary muscle known as the arrector pili is attached to the underside of each follicle.
When fear or cold contracts this muscle, the hair stands erect, causing "goose-flesh.
Figure 5. The follicle, oil gland, and involuntary muscle. Situated at the base of every follicle is a projection of tissue called the papilla. The papilla extends through the center of the follicle into the bottom of the hair, which grows around it to form the hair bulb. The club-shaped hair bulb forms the lower part of the hair root.
The papilla produces the hair cells. It synthesizes proteins to feed the continuous formation of hair cells on its outer surface. The new cells created at the base of the hair bulb push up the older cells, which, as they rise, differentiate into the three types of cells that make up a hair shaft.
The papilla, when stimulated, becomes engorged with blood. When it is so engorged, it is able to manufacture life.
As long as the papilla functions, the hair grows. Without the papilla, new hair cells cannot be formed. It is through the papilla that nourishment reaches the hair bulb. Figure 6. The papilla is the "father" of the hair. It creates and nourishes the hair cells making up the cuticle, cortex, and medulla. The hair bulb, the lower part of the hair root, wraps itself around the papilla, holding it snugly in place. Most people have from 90, if they're redheaded to , if they're blond hairs on their heads, or somewhere in between if they're brunette.
But unlike some animals that molt seasonally that is, shed most of their hair or feathers at one time we lose a number of hairs every day. Our follicles do not dislodge all our hairs simultaneously. Average daily shedding for most of us amounts to about 50 to hairs, These are the hairs you find on your pillow, in the tub, Of on your brush and comb.
This hair loss is not cause for concern; on the contrary, you have the makings of a serious problem if you are not losing hairs every day. Hair grows according to an established cycle. Each scalp hair grows about one-half inch per month, every month, for two to six years four years on the average. The hair then rests for about three months before being pushed up and out by a new hair. At any point in time more hairs are growing in than are resting and falling. Figure 7. The replacement of hair.
At the left, the hair separates from the papilla at an early stage of shedding. At the right, a new hair grows from the same papilla at a later stage. When a hair sheds, its bulb loosens and separates from the papilla and the hair moves slowly up through the follicle to the surface, where it is shed; meanwhile a new hair is formed at a growing point around the papilla. In this way new hair replaces old. If you are not shedding, your papillae are not generating new hairs.
When we "thin," our long scalp hair is lost but in its place grows a vellous hair. The papilla no longer generates an equivalent new hair to replace the old hair that has fallen. But why would the papilla fail to produce a new scalp hair?
For the answer to this question, we must move on to Fact No. Although the skin is only one of the body's major organs, it sets up an enormous demand for blood and is allocated from one-half to two-thirds of the body's total blood supply. Moreover, the scalp, the portion of the skin stretched over the cranium, has the most intricate network of blood vessels in the body, indicating that compared to all the other parts of the body it hat the greatest need and appetite for blood.
The papilla it One of the most rapidly metabolizing of the body's organs, It maintains an extremely high rate of activity and consequently must be regularly supplied with large amounts of food and oxygen. Its requirements are met by its dense network of capillaries, which carry a very rich blood supply. The papillae must be engorged with blood if they are to create new life by producing the cells needed for the growth and replenishment of the hair. If the capillaries carrying blood to the papillae are constricted, or if blood circulation is impaired for any other reason, the papillae will fail to generate proper replacement hairs.
When the papillae have been starved in this way, hair loss occurs but proper replenishment does not follow. Instead, the papillae atrophy, sending out vellous hairs that look like peach fuzz.
The formation and growth of hair cells depend on the proper nourishment of the papillae, and the vitality of the papillae depends on their blood supply. My research has shown that the papillae are resilient and are not easily killed off. While they can atrophy and fall dormant, they can also be reinvigorated and returned to normalcy provided they are stimulated properly. Figure 8. The papilla must be engorged with blood if it is to create new life.
Now, when I asked Joe Coridio what makes hair thick and healthy, and what can be done to prevent baldness, he answered with one word: "Blood. So I said, "You mean iron pills? The crown of the head is one of the body's extremities, like the fingertips and the toes.
In fact, it's the hardest place for the blood to reach. That's why most men start to lose their hair at the crown, one of the first places to show the effects of deteriorating blood circulation, while managing to hold on to it around the sides and back. He changed the subject and left me to draw whatever conclusions I could. Now, how could one increase the circulation to the scalp to keep the papillae productive, I wondered? Moreover, if a papilla had fallen dormant, was it possible to revive it by resupplying it with the nourishment it needed?
If my fingers or toes were ever numbed by the cold of a New England winter, I reasoned, I warmed them by sending blood into them. And the most effective way to do that was to rub them until the skin turned pink. Could it be so simple? What harm could there be in trying? I recruited as guinea pigs two fellow students who happened to be thinning and massaged their scalps vigorously every day for several minutes.
After four months, we made an exciting discovery: my guinea pigs showed definite signs of new hair growth. The experiment worked, and my crusade was under way. Chapter 2 Hair and the Male Ego My business has taught me that hair has a deep psychological significance and that most men are seriously affected by hair loss.
I would go so far as to say that hair loss can leave a man feeling as diminished as a woman who has lost a breast.
I've known men prize fighters and tough union organizers as well as students and artists to be devastated by it. I am reminded of this every day by my customers, but I was first sensitized to it years ago, before I became a barber. I remember one of my husband's friends, an athletic hulk of a guy who was not one to display his emotions. He was going bald, felt terrible about it, and was searching frantically for a cure.
One day he told me that he had never in his adult life allowed himself to cry men didn't in those days until he began losing his hair. That changed things. He confided in me then that he had shed tears over his hair loss, and I'm willing to bet there are millions of men out there who are crying right now inside or out for the same reason. This book is dedicated to a nephew of mine who died at 15, a victim of cancer.
This beautiful young man underwent the amputation of a leg and the devastating impact of chemotherapy, and even the loss of his father, but never complained or cried until he lost his hair as a result of the treatment. That broke him. I remember him asking me through his tears if his hair would ever grow back. I assured him it would and brought him the longest wig I could find to use until it did.
I've discussed this matter with one of my customers, who happens to teach medicine at Tufts Medical Center. He trains young physicians working with chemotherapy, and he now makes it point of instructing his students to make it very clear to their patient that their hair will grow back after the therapy ends. This point should never be overlooked; there are many men and women of all ages who would rather die than suffer the loss of their hair.
Hair loss can start as early as puberty. One man in five starts thinning soon after adolescence and is bald by the time he is The earlier the process sets in, the more difficult it can be to adjust to. One of my customers put it this way: "It's hard to express how I felt. I was 20 years old and afraid to go out what kind of girl wanted to date a skinhead? I walked around in a miserable mood. Why me?
Why did my hair have to fall out when I was only 20? Why couldn't it wait until I was 30? At least by then I'd probably have a wife, children, and a good job. I'd be secure. He was a very handsome and fastidious man who had everything: looks, intelligence, a proud lineage, a loving family, a good job, and the respect of his community.
But he was also bald and very frustrated about it. I've given it a lot of thought, and I firmly believe that his baldness left him with insecurities deep enough to occasionally drive him to drink. Since I'm the curious type and rarely bashful I've gotten to know my men, both as individuals and as a sex.
In some ways I think I know them better than any woman alive. Men who know me well open up when they're in my chair, confiding in me some of their most intimate feelings, fears, and fantasies. They trust me. I once asked a number of men what their worst nightmares consisted of, and many revealed that they dreaded the loss of their hair even more than the loss of their penis. Because they could hide the absence of a penis, but the absence of hair left them naked and exposed.
The psychological association we make between hair and maleness, sexual virility, and strength is universal. It goes far deeper than vanity. I call it the Sampson Syndrome, and I urge the psychiatrists and psychologists who patronize my shops to observe its effects very carefully when they work with patients suffering hair loss. A lot of time and effort can be saved by asking such men how they feel about their hair.
The Sampson Syndrome has its roots in the fact that the growth of facial and body hair is a secondary sexual characteristic accompanying puberty. By what psychologists call a process of "displacement," we subconsciously identify the hair of the head, too, with sexual power, and, in fact, with the genitals themselves.
Head hair has symbolized the penis for as long as our species can remember.
This symbolic role of hair is one of the reasons men so dread going bald; psychologically, baldness symbolizes lessened virility. Our hair is the only sexual characteristic we can freely display. The way we wear it makes a statement about the degree of sexual freedom or repression we feel, or that our society makes us feel. That is why armies and authoritarian governments impose short hairstyles, and why convicts have their heads shaved.
Head shaving is a symbol of castration and forced sexual deprivation. Hair loss forces us to confront the aging process and death. Especially in a society like ours which puts such a high premium on youth, our anxieties about growing old and losing our vitality can intensify a loss of self-confidence. Hair loss can make a man painfully self-conscious about his appearance and his age, affecting his posture and bearing, as well as the way he dresses.
It can come to dominate his image of himself. Nine out of ten men who come into my shop with this problem are extremely sensitive about it and resent discussing it, preferring to think that nobody notices their baldness. When I tell them I'm going to cut their hair, their response is usually a gruff, "Well, there's not much left, you know.
Men who fail to adjust constructively to premature hair loss come to feel unattractive; because they feel unattractive, they become less attractive, turning an irrational fear into a self-fulfilling prophecy. And these fears are thoroughly irrational. Biologically the cause of baldness does not at all affect a man's virility.
But the fear that it might affect virility can do the most damage. The actors Yul Brynner and Telly Savalas demonstrate that baldness can be beautiful and very sexy. It is by no means the end of the world.
The important thing is to learn how to make the most of what you've got, and to restore what has been lost, and there's a lot you can do to groom yourself and rebuild your confidence.
Irrational or not, though, a man's fears are very real, and those associated with hair loss can be very hard to overcome. They can affect the attitudes and self-image of even the most successful men.
Julius Caesar is said to have prized his laurel wreath more than all the other honors he received simply because it hid his baldness, and Napoleon's valet tells us that when his employer, the Emperor of France, met with Alexander, Czar of Russia, to discuss the future of Europe, they ended up talking about baldness cures.
Obviously, baldness poses an additional hurdle that a man must overcome to achieve self-love. It makes life a little tougher. Because of its psychological implications, touching your hair is a sexual act. It's a self-indulgence that's good for you, and in the following pages I'm going to advise you to rub your hair and scalp vigorously every day. Now, some "experts" threaten that if you touch or rub your hair too much it will fall out or break off, and you'll lose it forever and because of hair's sexual associations you might be inclined to believe it - and resist the truth.
Free yourself from this fear. Scalp massage without fear is the answer you have been searching for and believed didn't exist. Make an art of Chapter 3.
No More MPB My experience confirms the well-known truism that a balding man grasps at hairs the way a desperate man grasps at straws. I've found that otherwise intelligent and worldly men are prepared to believe any notion no matter how absurd if it holds out the promise of renewed hair growth. Quack cures have kept clever salespeople alive for generations. Today such remedies are big business, but they are in no way new to the marketplace.
People have been searching for selling and downloading magical treatments for baldness since the beginning of recorded history. I could offer you, for example, a mixture of dogs' paws, dates, and asses' hooves ground and cooked in oil coming all the way from Egypt, it's the secret brew of an ancient king; rub it vigorously into your scalp and it's guaranteed to hair on the baldest head.
Or a poultice of cumin and pigeon droppings recommended by none other than Hippocrates himself ; bears' fat, the favorite of ancient Rome it worked wonders for the Caesars ; vipers' oil derived exclusively from snakes caught at the full moon ; or human excrement, perhaps "burnt and annoynted with Honey".
Sound ridiculous? Of course. You wonder how anyone could ever have believed in them. Let's be glad we've come as far as we have. But just how far have we come? A few years ago a national UPI report informed the world about a British farmer who apparently succeeded in growing hair by rubbing chicken droppings into his scalp. And not long ago a woman called in to a radio talk show I was doing to announce that her son had grown new hair thanks to the horse manure he used! Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if one or more of these procedures worked no thanks to the ingredients, mind you, but to the rubbing.
You don't need fertilizer to grow hair; you need blood. Vigorous rubbing is the only way to get the blood where you need it most up to the crown of your head and into your dormant papillae. How different are today's remedies from those of a hundred or a thousand years ago? Consider jojoba pronounced ho-ho-ba oil, the product that's all the rage. Derived from the bean of an evergreen shrub that grows wild in the desert areas of the south western United States and Mexico, jojoba oil is said to be combined with twenty herbs, fermented for three months, and then distilled to formulate an "energizer.
Its promoters claim that, if used according to directions, it will regenerate hair growth "if there are active hair cells on the scalp. Now, as you know, sebum is the oil secreted by the sebaceous gland to coat the hair shaft as it grows out of the follicle. It has nothing to do with the function of the papillae, which generate new hair cells and nourish the shafts.
When sebum accumulates excessively in the hair follicles of the face it forms what we call blackheads and pustules, but it certainly doesn't cause the hair of the beard to fall out or stop growing.
Why should it? It doesn't harm the papillae. Does the jojoba theory, at bottom, want us to believe that blackheads on the scalp I've never even seen one; have you? The whole theory strikes me as totally preposterous. And the fact that I've grown hair on the heads of thousands of men without the help of this oil convinces me that you might as well use bears' fat and if you rub it in properly you shouldn't have to wait nine months for results.
Then there are the shampoos, conditioners, and emulsions containing biotin. A "breakthrough developed by endocrinologists," biotin is promoted as a vital "nutritional factor in hair growth and in the control of excessive hair fallout. Vitamin B. Is there any evidence that this vitamin or any vitamin can grow hair? You might as well look for a vitamin that grows teeth.
Most of the shampoos featuring biotin also contain other "elements vital to hair growth and restoration," including such things as the nucleic acids RNA and DNA, the amino acid cystine, the protein keratin, and vitamins A and D. The RNA and DNA are added, we are told, because "anything that aids nucleic acid activity in the hair follicle will also help enhance hair growth. Eliot Alpert of Massachusetts General Hospital, with whom I have consulted on this question for more than thirteen years.
Hair building goes on in the papillae, and the papillae are nourished solely by the blood reaching them through the capillaries. This is not to say that if you rub these products into your scalp every day you will not see new growth.
Rubbed vigorously enough, your scalp will undoubtedly show new growth. But if you're a chicken farmer, droppings are cheaper. It is a scientific fact that there is no shampoo, conditioner, or emulsion you can apply to your hair or scalp whose ingredients will penetrate the skin, enter the follicle, and reach the papilla to be absorbed.
The same is true for hair-regenerator creams, biotin ointments, hair-restoration gels, and antihormonal topical lotions even if they are imported from Europe.
The skin's role is to serve as a protective barrier to the intrusion of potentially harmful substances, and the scalp performs its job very well. It absorbs a little lanolin or oil into its surface layers, and that's it. If it were otherwise, we'd walk around with sponges for scalps. Remember, too, that the hair shafts are composed of dead matter; they don't "eat" and they don't affect the hair generation or growth process.
Yes, they're porous and able to absorb chemical solutions such as hair tints, dyes, bleaches, perms, and straighteners, and they can be coated with proteins for grooming.
But there is no evidence that anything applied to the hair shaft or scalp can descend to the papillae and stimulate new hair growth. You simply cannot feed the papillae from without. You're better off with manure provided you rub it into your scalp until it tingles. Well, then, why not hair food?! Let's provide the papillae with the chemical substances needed for hair construction by ingesting the "hair-growing vitamins and proteins" they need! I've hear so many contradicting views about what to eat and what not to eat.
Not sure what to do. Wheat if definitely out, but things like onions and garlic seem to be on the no no list, but some of you here suggest them because they are good for the gut. Some say low carb, other say carbs are important.
Any definite list of what to avoid? Last edited by kiddkidd1; at Also plan on getting blood work done. And if i can find that danny roddy coaching link, might try that too. Even that ebook said the priorities are decalcifying the scalp and avoiding gluten. I'm going to get a hair transplant eventually, not even pretending otherwise.
I just want to be able to keep that hair without using propecia. The study in the ebook was pretty remarkable. The guys' hair loss was pretty extreme, and in under 12months they were NW1.
I've been trying to locate the one to one coaching for you guys, but can't seem to find it. You can email him at dannyroddy gmail. Last edited by Manoko; at Originally Posted by Manoko.

I agree his hair are really good now, but does he have any pictures of his hair before doing his regimen? It didn't work for me but my gut was probably in a very bad condition.
So I guess I didn't give it a fair enough try. Won't try again soon since I follow Taeian diet advice to see if I can stop my hairloss this way first.
Took 12mg of iodine daily for almost 6 weeks. I measured my pulse rate this morning when I woke up while still in bed, it was 53 bpm. Is this good or bad? According to the author, you can just measure your temperature and pulse, and a youthful metabolic rate would be around 37 degrees celsius body temperature and a heart rate of 85 beats per minute. I was interested in this theory, for a couple of reason, one being the fact that I have had an extremely low heart rate since the first time I measured it when I was My heart rate was around BPM from 18 until I was I don't know how high it was before that.
Instinctively, this just didn't feel right, but my doctor told me that I was extremely "healthy", and that I had a heart rate of a top athlete, although I didn't do much exercise at that point. I wondered why being so extremely healthy felt like shit, because I was always tired. Anyway, I was kind of sceptical, if Hair Like A Fox could do anything for my hair, my hair has been receding slowly since I'm around 18 years old.
