How can I know if a treatment will success on me?
This is very difficult to answer. You should start with one of "the most effective"
but not before asking to your doctor.
There is not treatment that works on everyone. What was an amazing treatment for some, for others didn't have any result.
So the best is to try it by your own.

Queremos ayudarte así no tienes que pasar por manos de payasos que dicen hacer crecer el pelo.
I myself have recovered my hair with economic treatments that you can by in any Pharmacy.
Whats the time that I have to wait to see if a treatment works?
Persistence is the mother of success.
In fact, this is a phrase that just came to my mind, but in this case I think is
absolutly true. An intermitent treatment is not going to help and is going to make you feel like it does not work.
And you want to know something worst? later on you are going to enter into the forum explaining that the treatmente didn't work when
it was you that did the treatment wrong...
Six month. If you are not able to try during at least six month, do not try any treatment unless is surgical (that will give you result
in a couple of days).
Can I use more that one treatment at the same time?
Yes. But the best to do is to start with one, to wait six month and messure the results. If its good for you, maybe you can mix it with some other.
But be aware that there are some treatments
that cannot be mix with others.
I met a guy that decide to make a "combo" of Minoxidil. Minoxidil from a brand "A" in the morning, Minoxidil "B" in the afternoon and
Minoxidil "C" in the night. The result? He got hair even on the palms of the hands!
Not true... the result is an overdose maximizing side effects and without any adventages on hair growing.
Always consult your doctor and make sure that whatever you put on your hair was approved by the
Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
I start a treatment since a month already and my hair is falling more than before. What's going on?
Most of the treatments stop or accelerate the actual phase that your hair is going thru (take a look at the end of
if you don't know about the phases) making that the weak hair fall prematurely.
If that accurs, do not despair and do not interrupt your treatment. Normally you will notice some result passing the first 3 month of treatment.
Anyway if you have any doubts, consult with your doctor.
