Question: “I’ve seen Dr Jones Instant Hair on your website, can you tell me about this product?”
Answer: “Sure. I am getting great feedback from my patients about my Instant Hair Thickening Fibers, and many of them use it. Dr Jones Instant Hair is applied before you go out onto the thinning area of your head. It comes in various colors, so you apply that which suits you best. It statically bonds to your natural hair, thickening up your hair with an incredible natural appearance (see the before and after photos on my website www.drrobertjones.com). The hair fibers stay in while you are out in public in any condition and wash out easily with soap when you are home. Dr Jones Instant Hair is for both males and females. An interesting use for mature females is to cover up roots that are growing back after a coloring, my wife uses it for this. I am amazed every day at my patients enthusiastic responses to Dr Jones Instant Hair, and at the confidence they are gaining with this simple versatile product. See my website for more information, and if you would like to try it you can order it from there as well.”

Question: “I am a 17 years old female. I used to have very thick, long, black hair. It started thinning i can’t say exactly when or why. Am I not eating enough vitamins? Is it because I dyed my hair? I also blow dry and straighten my hair. Is that bad for my hair? I really want my long thick hair back. Will it grow back?
Answer: “You should have a proper examination of your scalp performed. You need to have your overall health checked out, looking for a variety of hormonal issues and diseases that can cause hair loss. If you do not have miniaturization or other causes of hair loss and hair thinning, then you may be experiencing the change into a new adult hair type. Some people, maturing from teens to adults, experience a change their hair character. Phone my office for a consultation or find a good doctor who you can trust to help you out. Good Luck, Dr Robert Jones.”

Question: “I finished my chemotherapy four weeks ago and I am beginning to see my hair growing back. Is it true that my hair could change? I heard that sometimes hair color and texture are effected by chemotherapy.”
Answer: “Most women who undergo chemotherapy have hair loss during the treatment, and their hair is pushed into its telogen cycle which usually lasts 3-8 months after the chemotherapy. When the hair comes back, it may not return to its full density. With more information, what kind of chemotherapy you underwent and the timeline of your recovery, I may be able to give you some more specific information.”

Question: “I am a mature woman and I have noticed that many of the ladies in the salons who are my age have thinning hair. What can you tell me? What can I do about it?”
Answer: “Female genetic balding affects possibly half of post menopausel women. Many women will lighten their hair, as it is the best colour to conceal the thinning. There are few other options. Be skeptical of the options you find and try to find first hand word about a procedure or drug before you use it. I would recommend my Instant Hair Thickening Fiber, as I do to most of my patients. Perhaps it will just be a temporary solution, but I have many women who use this product, whether it is to cover up roots, or thinning. You can learn more about this product at www.drrobertjones.com. Good Luck, Dr. Jones”

Question: “Im a female and had about 30 x-rays this year… A few months later I started to lose a lot of hair, a general thinning and in patches. My doctor doesn’t believe that the x rays were the cause. A blood test didn’t show any reasons for hair loss, and it’s not a genetic thing…can you help me?”
Answer: “As far as I know, in concordance with your physician, x-rays do not cause hair loss. I would need to know more about the past year of your life regarding your health to make a proper diagnosis, though we can be sure it is not the x-rays. I would be happy to help you if you want to get in touch. You can fnd my contact info at www.drrobertjones.com. Good Luck, Dr. Jones”

Question: “What is the reason for bald head in middle? I am a 25 yrs old. female. I am taking mintop and rudimin treatement. What is your opinion of this treatement is good? Should I continue with it?”
Answer: “Females typically thin in an area on the middle and top of the head. Since medical problems are often related to female pattern hair loss, you should visit your doctor to have a complete check up and blood work to rule these out. The only real treatment besides hair transplant is minoxidil.

Question: “I have been diagnosed with Alopecia Areata as well as some unexplained allergies. It has been difficult to feel certain that stress is the cause of my hair loss. I’m concerned there may be another cause for the hair loss that has been overlooked. I have had a blood test for thyroid problems and nothing has turned up. What other test can be taken to rule out other health concerns? I had shingles, tinea versicolor, exercise induced anaphalaxis, and had a twinrix shot, as well as other allergies.
During the past 2 to three years I have had a number of immune issues come up and would like to rule out other possibilities.
Just saw a show called the “Doctors” regarding hair loss and one concern mentioned was a tumor in the pituatary gland that is over producing a hormone that is causing hair loss. I’m just concerned that my hair loss is from strain on my immune system .
Do you know anything of this machine called
revage 670 and its hair regrowth?”
Answer: “There are many medical causes for hair loss in females. I suggest you download my free ebook from www.drrobertjones.com and read the chapter on female hair loss for a summary of the medical problems causing hair loss in females. Next visit your family doctor and have them ruled out.
I have not heard of revage 670 and I doubt whether it will make any difference to your hair thinning,
good luck, Dr. Robert Jones”

Question:”I have a balding condition on my temples. It’s inherited since my mum and two of her three her sisters have it. I am 34 years old and black. I am very self conscious of it so I wear head scarves many times, Is there a way that this can be reversed or is there something missing in my diet? I would really appretiate any advice you can offer?”
Answer:”Your balding is very unlikely from your diet, more likely hereditary. You can have a hair transplant for this, visit your closest hair restoration surgeon. You can also send me a few photos with your contact attached and I will gladly call you with recommendations,
Dr. Robert Jones”

Question: I’m a 16 year old female. I was born with a high hairline. I’ve saved about $5,000 to get the procedure to lower my hairline and was wondering about how much would it be to take off half an inch to an inch. I also have a widows peak and want to know if it is possible to fix that too. what would be an estimate and could there be any payment plans. I really want to get this done…and soon.
Answer: It costs about $8,000 (icludes all anesthesia and facility charges) for a hairline lowering procedure. The hairline lowering procedure is like a reverse brow lift and this is often the way women get a lower hairline. For the widows peak you would have to have a consultation.
A hair transplant could lower the hairline as well. This is the same procedure performed regularly with men. The fees are based on how much hair is moved (price per graft). I would be happy to review your case confidentially if you send me a photo. Good Luck, Dr. Robert Jones.

Question: What is the truth? I`ve heard so much about how these things effect my hair, what is your opinion? Alcohol, Marijuana, Tobacco, Salt, Preservatives, Fats (red meat), Use of Dietary Supplements,
