Question: “Dr Jones, My hair loss started when I was 15, now I’m 20 and it’s much worse. My forhead is bigger because of my hairloss. What are the possible causes and treatments for this?
Answer: “I would confidently say this is genetic male pattern balding. You should get your hair mapped out for miniturization to make the diagnosis, afterwards you can possibly consider medications like Propecia. Good Luck, Dr Jones”

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: “Hey, I’m really stressed out. I’m 14 years old and I think my hairs falling out. I saw a doctor and he said I have a healthy head, but I lose about 50 hairs every day in the shower alone, and this morning there was hair all over my pillow. Should I do somthing? What can I do? I don’t want to be bald.”
Answer: “The average person loses 100-150 hairs per day. The hair loss you notice in the shower is probably less than what you lose during the day when you are not washing your hair. It is all normal, don’t get stressed out.”

Question: “Are doctors still using the terrible looking plugs? I see them all them time I think, maybe it’s just a bad transplant.”
Answer: “Plugs gave this industry a really bad name in the 1970-80s. They have largely been replaced with small grafts that are called follicular units. Of course there are some doctors that use ‘combination grafting’ which is a mixture of larger small grafts and naturally occurring follicular units. This is essentially a lazy doctor who is interested in supplying top quality work. Only the follicular units are undetectable in bright light or close inspection. For this reason make sure you see many photos of work the doctor your considering has done, and perhaps even go so far as contacting a previous patient. A hair transplant is expensive, be a conscious consumer.

Question: “I have been sick for a couple weeks and I think my hair loss has been elevated. Is this true, am I losing more hair wen I’m feeling tiered and weak?”
Answer: “Stress can contribute to hair loss, but were talking extreme stress. It would have to be quite a debilitating illness to have a noticeable effect on your hair. I would have to know more about the nature of your illness to say for sure whether it is causing hair loss, but if it is not to serious my quick answer would be that your illness is not effecting your hair loss. Good luck and get well soon, Dr. Robert Jones”

Question: “I have many friends who use Instant Hair Thickening Fibers. Why do I never hear of this product, they all love it. What is the best product on the market?”
Answer: “Hair Fibers are relatively new to the public conscience. But the product is great, and does wonders for just about anyone who is suffering from thinning hair. Whether one uses Instant Hair temporarily whil awaiting growth from a transplant or results from propecia, it makes people very happy, and more confident. There are many similar products out there, and all are virtually identical. The difference comes in price. Toppik is ridiculously over-priced, almost 10 dollars more a bottle than Dr Jones Instant Hair Thickening Fibers. Good Luck and enjoy the product!”

Question: “Is there anything I can do for my hair loss other than a transplant.”
Answer: “Of course there are tons of options. Take a look at my Patient of the week on my site (http://www.drrobertjones.com/featuredpatient-jan09.html). This patient used my product line (shampoo, conditioner, scalp treatment, Instant hair) along with 1mg of Propecia a day for two years and has had great results. Look at the before and after photos. He is using my new Instant Hair Thickening Fibers along with his new growth. He’s a happy man. I recomend trying this daily routine, who knows you might have a similar positive reaction.”

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 have heard that by the 8th or 9th month Propecia’s regrowth/thickening will have taken effect. If I haven’t had any growth, now after 9 months, should I give up on Propecia?
Answer: “Medication works differently on each individual. I would never guarantee Propecia or any drug to any of my patients. There is no cure for hair loss and all drugs have limitations. At the same time, you may not be noticing any growth, but perhaps you notice less hair falling out. Less hair falling out is the effect of Propecia on many people. 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.”
