Effective home remedies for hair loss in women?

Do you have any good home remedies for hair loss in women? I have noticed that my hairline is receding somewhat. My part looks a bit wider and you just see a bit more of my scalp generally. I cannot identify a cause but it happened over the course of 4-8 months. I eat a good diet with plenty of protein (eggs, etc.). Thyroid tests normal. I have noticed a bit more hairs shed in the shower, but nothing that unusual. No hairs on the pillow, but some on the floor. Scalp okay but a bit of dandruff. I have been using a new hair color but I can't imagine it would cause my hair to fall out at the roots when rest of it is long and healthy looking. The loss is mostly at the temples and top third of my head. I used to have A LOT of hair. Any suggestions or home remedies are welcome!

AndroGel - Hair Loss?

Im a 40yo Male and I just had some blood work done and although my Testosterone levels are withing the normal range, they are on the low side said my doctor. He prescribed androgel. Ive read all over the interwebs about a possibility of hair loss. Well this makes me very scared to take it. I have no signs of male pattern baldness and im quite attached to having hair as opposed to being bald. Can anyone chime in with personal experience/advice/etc....? Im on the fence here and would like some feedback. Thx!

Wise and witty words about balding.

I don't have as much hair as I used to, and I understand this is not uncommon! It seems like the sort of thing Updike would have written about, or some other self-reflective male writer of a certain age, and I'd like to be able to read (and ideally quote) something well-written or epigrammatic for when the subject comes up.

What were the results of your hairtransplant like?

Have you ever had a hair transplant procedure to treat male pattern baldness? The last time someone asked about this here in Ask Metafilter, everyone said, "Don't get plugs! Shave your head!", but there were no testimonials from guys who had actually experienced the surgery. If you've had the surgery, when did you have it, what sort of procedure did you have done, were the results reasonably natural, and would you recommend it? [more inside]

How can I tell if my recent hair loss is natural or a medication side effect?

I'm a mid-20s male who recently noticed some hair loss around the time I stopped taking the anti-depressant Remeron. Some online research tells me that hair loss is a fairly rare but not unheard-of side effect of this medication. How can I tell if my hair loss is actually from the medication, and how long does it typically take to start seeing new hair growth after stopping such a medication? [more inside]

Did Male Pattern Baldness predate the shower?

It just occurred to me that the spot on your scalp that receives the focus of the force of the water in a shower coincides with the spot where hair loss in MPB first appears? Is this just a coincidence?
