FAQ:

Q: What are the best hair loss treatments?

Ans: there are various types of hair loss treatments. I have tried to explain some traditional and offbeat methods which one can apply as home remedies. There are also parlor treatments. They test the texture of hair, scalp and recommend the treatment to be followed.

Besides this for males (21 to 60 yrs) can try this product from Profollica. 

Because rather than simply “cleaning” or “purifying” the scalp, Profollica uses the very latest in medical scientific research to deal with the root cause of men’s hair loss: excess DHT (dihydrotestosterone)!

Q: Application of Vitamin E for hair growth?

Ans: Definitely one can mix vitamin e oil with castor oil/coconut oil and massage on the scalp. This also improves the texture of hair and helps in hair regrowth

Q: Cause of excessive hair fall or hair loss?

Ans: Usually hair thinning or excessive hair fall is an indication of certain changes. The change can be internal or external.

Internal conditions can be hormonal changes, recovery from illness, the effect of certain medications, anemia in women is a big reason for hair loss. For this one has to check with a registered medical practitioner and act as advice.

External reasons mainly occur due to lack of cleanliness. Cleaning of the scalp and hair, pillow covers, combs/brushes are necessary. Avoid using styling products.

Besides these a properly balanced diet with walnuts, fresh fruits, and omega 3 fatty acid, exercise do help in healthy growth of hair.

Q: What is a hair transplant?

Ans: Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that removes hair follicles from one part of the body, called the ‘donor site’, to a thinning or balding part of the body known as the ‘recipient site’. The technique is primarily used to treat baldness in men. In this minimally invasive procedure, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding (like the back of the head) are transplanted to the bald scalp. Hair transplantation can also be used to restore eyebrows, eyelashes, beard hair, chest hair, pubic hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants. This is very much in practice nowadays.
