I used Stieprox Shampoo but in some cities/countries it is not available. Alternative option is Nizoral. I use it 3 times a week. Whenever I’m not using Stieprox/Nizoral, I use Loreal Elvive Extra Ordinary Oil In Cream. These 2 help a lot.
Hi Minaz, how long did it take for your hair to grow back? How soon did you see your hair getting thicker? My hair story runs parallel to yours…I started taking care from past couple weeks as mentioned so just wondering how long does it take to show results.
It was not too long ago when the traditional means of treating Hair Loss only involved changes in a person’s Lifestyle, Healthy Diet, Refraining from applying external pressures on the Scalp as a result of Overstyling, taking in or applying Medications that the issue of balding, and even an invasive procedure such as Surgery.
Massage is effective for the hair growth. It will prevent hair fall as well. For massage, you can make a mixture of two tablespoon honey, two tablespoon of olive oil and cinnamon powder. Blend it properly to make a paste. You can apply this paste to your scalp two times in a week to help in hair growth and to stop hair loss. Coconut milk massage will be helpful as well. You can use the extracts of fresh coconut to get the maximum benefits. You will have to massage it into your scalp and then wash it after thirty minutes.
Other off-label products that show possibilities are Tagamet (an antacid treatment), azelaic acid (a rosacea and acne treatment) and some birth control pills. Experts say that these products require further study into their effectiveness, as well as any possible side effects.
Minoxidil circumvents hair loss largely by increasing blood flow (and nutrition) to the follicles, though it’s also believed to return some dormant follicles to a healthy state of growth. Finasteride, on the other hand, is a DHT inhibitor and restores a degree of normal function to the follicles. But both treatments need to be applied daily to work; have a limit to the amount of hair they can restore (they won’t work on permanently damaged follicles), and lose their effectiveness over time for a subset of users (Dutasteride, another more potent but off label DHT inhibitor, faces the same limitation).
I’m still not bald enough. I would like my hair to recede a little more off the sides and the back and end up with a smaller fringe of hair. And I would like to lose that last bit of thin ‘peach fuzz’ I still have on top. It is almost invisible and I can hardly feel it, but I know it’s still there.
Although this might be a more expensive hair loss treatment and solution, we believe that the three-month supply of Procerin hair growth shampoo is by far the best value for individuals who prefer organic hair shampoo versus another brand.

I remember years back when I first tried minoxidil it was in liquid form, and for the first 5 days, my scalp was itching red. After that, my body got used to it and the redness went away without changing the product. But maybe that’s just me.
Long before the advent of chemical or surgical hair restoration – people around the world have been using natural remedies to nourish the scalp and keep hair thick and healthy. There are around two dozen common causes for hair loss and hair thinning including (but not limited to) stress, skin infection, medications, age, heredity, and sudden change in diet. Whatever your case may be, the remedies on this list when used regularly can help you to regrow, or thicken, your hair.
Yarrow is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and astringent herb making it an ideal remedy for treating scalp conditions which can cause hair loss. Add a few drops of yarrow oil to a carrier oil such as jojoba or olive to help stimulate new hair growth.
Experts say that other factors may contribute to hair loss, including stress, smoking, overuse of alcohol, diet, and certain medications – such as antidepressants, and cholesterol and high blood pressure drugs.

Do consume plenty of protein rich food. Protein is found in meat, sea food, eggs, dairy and soy products. Vegetarians should consume soy in form of tempeh, tofu, lentils, whole grains etc. Soy is especially important for all hair fall sufferers as it is known to block DHT.

Nisha, Oh dear! Give these natural options a try. Start with natural shampoo and oiling. And don’t focus on losing weight, focus on getting healthier, making healthy food choices. Exercise and do pranayam on regular basis. That is a more positive approach to improving your health and well being – and you will see your hair will get better too.
Minoxidil, by far the most popular hair loss treatment in the US, encourages hair growth through a far different mechanism. Proponents of the topical ointment claim it widens blood vessels and other pathways to allow more oxygen and proteins to reach the follicles and stimulate hair growth. But it is effective for only about 40% of people.
If your hair follicles are sensitive to DHT they will begin to shrink, and each time they fall out they will become thinner and thinner until they become so small, they become virtually invisible. This is how male pattern baldness operates.
Not that you won’t see results for six months, however. In some cases, iRestore users experienced a noticeable improvement in hair growth in as little as three months. Check out this video to learn more:
Lipogaine is pricier compared to regular 5% minoxidil brands. If you can afford increased price tag, it’s probably a good idea. The added DHT-blocking ingredients will give you a boost, but they can’t compare to finasteride.
Results can take awhile to become apparent, so it’s important to be patient and follow the regimen exactly. It is best to begin using these products at the first signs of balding or hair thinning for the best results. Drinking more water, eating a balanced diet, taking a daily multivitamin, and taking advantage of additional supplements like Biotin can also help speed up hair regrowth.
This treatment includes light therapy that is conducted every week, two to three times. It can take 26 weeks to a year to see any results from this treatment. The laser treatment exposes your skin to ultraviolet rays and, therefore, poses some risk of skin cancer, pigmentation, nausea, etc. And for these risks, it is not very often recommended by doctors.
Every cell in the body uses water to function properly and your hair cells are no exception. Apart from poor nutrition, lack of proper hydration could be a contributing factor to hair fall. This could lead to a high proportion of hair follicles could stop their growth cycle.
Vigorous rubbing of scalp with fingers after washing hair with cold water is one of the most effective home remedies for hair loss. Ideally, scalp should be rubbed vigorously until it starts to tingle with the heat. The exercise will activate the sebaceous glands and improve circulation of blood across the scalp.
