Welcome! My name is Rob English. I’m a researcher, medical editor, and the founder of Perfect Hair Health. I started this website five years ago to showcase evidence-based approaches to slowing, stopping, and reversing hair loss outside of the drug model.
My interest in hair loss began in 2007 - right after I was diagnosed with androgenic alopecia. Since then, I've spent thousands of hours researching hair loss - its causes, treatments, and misconceptions. I've distilled complex hair loss science into dozens of reader-friendly articles. I've also published two peer-reviewed papers on androgenic alopecia: one on its pathology; one on an underutilized treatment.
Today, this site has produced dozens of success stories, grown its readership into the thousands, and even launched a private community. Yet its mission stays the same: to empower hair loss sufferers, maximize their chances for hair regrowth, and guide everyone to treatments best-suited to their own needs and preferences.

It's time to clean up hair loss misinformation
When it comes to online hair loss advice, it's hard to discern good information from misinformation. Discussion boards like Reddit fixate on the emotions of hair loss… all while touting FDA-approved drugs as the only way to stop it. Natural hair loss websites fear-monger over the sexual side effects of finasteride… all while marketing their own "DHT reducers" allegedly devoid of such problems.
The truth is always somewhere in the middle. And natural versus conventional: it doesn't matter. Marketers on both sides manipulate science to suit their own needs.
Hair regrowth is possible, with or without drugs
I've published two peer-reviewed papers on androgenic alopecia. I've researched hair loss for over a decade. I've worked with hundreds of readers. I've written a 60,000-word book on the topic. What I can say is... There is no "one-size-fits-all" solution to hair thinning.
The right treatment depends entirely on your needs and preferences -- your age, gender, hair loss type, and beyond. Do you want to take an all-natural approach? Do you want to try FDA-approved drugs? There are effective, evidence-based methods for both paths. You just need to be made aware of them.
It all starts with your access to unbiased information.
Objective, unbiased research
Our articles distill complex hair loss science into easy-to-understand articles... so you can stop reading PubMed until 3am every night. Want to know why supplements are a waste? Or if low blood flow causes hair loss? This is the place.
Alternatives to drugs
Not all hair loss sufferers want to commit for a lifetime to finasteride or minoxidil. That’s okay. There are well-researched alternatives to both drugs – many of which don’t cost a dime. Learn about them here.
A supportive community
Hair loss can be psychologically debilitating. At the same time, fixating on our emotions won’t regrow any hair. Here, you’ll find a community of encouraging, science-oriented readers who invest just as much in learning as they do getting results.
Therapies to enhance drug efficacy
Not responding well to finasteride? Seeing hair regrowth from minoxidil, but want more hair recovery? Small add-ons to any hair loss regimen – in combination with either drug – can improve hair counts by over 400%. We’ll reveal why... and how. And we’ve got the case studies to prove it.
Hair loss targets beyond DHT
In my first peer-reviewed paper, I wrote about the limitations of reducing DHT to reverse pattern hair loss. I also revealed targets beyond DHT that might reap better results. Today, 90% of our success stories have seen hair regrowth without ever touching drugs or targeting this hormone... including me.
