      Eat more eggs. You'll get more hair, and nicer looking hair.

    For hair regrowth. From best to worst...

    1. Hair plugs, (places like Bosley, Hair Club for Men, and some others) They are very effective, for they use your own hair from behind your head. Very expensive, for a full set – you would probably spend $20k – atleast. I had my hair done with Hair Club, and the doctor convinced me that 10k would be enough, but they didn't even cover half of my head. I was disappointed with them. When I went back to them with the results, they said I will have to spend more for more hair. Surprise, surprise.

    2. Propecia – Effective for few people only. It might stop hair loss, but will not regrow hair. Cost: Around $70/month if you get it from Costco. That's the cheapest I could find. You can also download some kind of coupon from propecia website, might save you $10-$15 per month.

    3. Rogaine – Specially for mail pattern baldness. Propecia is proven better than Rogaine.

    4. Cheapest way is to learn to live happy with whatever we got. Unfortunately, I couldn't do that myself.

    Good luck guys.

    You can get a script for Proscar (the original med that was being used for prostate cancer, and found to stop hair loss, in is now in turn "propecia") 5mg tablets for about 1/10 the price of retail propecia, just split the pills...it's worked for me for the last 8 yrs.

    An iPhone app that can save your life? That's right! The Breast Health GPS can locate the nearest mammogram screening center AND connect you to all the social networking sites of the Breast Health and Healing Foundation. It's the # 1 breast cancer app on iTunes! Take a look: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/breast-health-gps/id361840350?mt=8

    If you experience hairloss due to alopecia, please watch our PSA! It will make you feel just a little better- and know you are not alone! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kzCEmVHPxA
