I used to have such lovely hair. I too was blessed with naturally straight, shiny, lucsious, and very thick locks. However, once I entered university last year, I tried dry shampoo to save time in the morning and immediately thought I’d found the holy grail. I used the stuff 3-4 times a week.
Finasteride is very effective at halting hair loss, but comes with a small but very real risk of permanent, life ruining side effects. Finasteride didn’t ruin my life, but I did experience some side effects which made it necessary for me to stop.

“There’s this guy, a regular caller on my radio show, who had his head disfigured by a terrible hair transplant,” says Spencer Kobren, founder and president of the American Hair Loss Association and author of The Bald Truth: The First Complete Guide to Preventing and Treating Hair Loss. “He purposely became a New York City cop so he could wear a hat.” And he refused promotions so he could remain a beat cop and keep wearing the hat.

Minoxidil: This medicine is applied to the scalp. It can stop hairs from getting thinner and stimulate hair growth on the top of the scalp. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved minoxidil to treat hair loss. It is the only hair re-growth product approved for men and women. A dermatologist may combine minoxidil with another treatment.
Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that removes hair follicles from one part of the body, called the ‘donor site’, to a bald or balding part of the body known as the ‘recipient site’. The technique is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. 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 eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, pubic hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants. Hair transplantation differs from skin grafting in that grafts contain almost all of the epidermis and dermis surrounding the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin.
While prescription medications for hair loss can be effective, they can also be very expensive and carry a host of unwanted side effects. In response to this, many people have turned to non-prescription solutions and achieved similar, or even better, results.
Minoxidil is definitely worth a try before you do a hair transplant. It works differently compared to finasteride, instead of addressing the main cause of hair loss (DHT), it focuses on regrowing hair. So since you’ve got the DHT part covered by finasteride, there’s a good change minoxidil might regrow some hair and help stop future hair loss.
In men, at least, baldness and thinning hair may occur because they inherited hair follicles that are over-sensitive to something called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Testosterone that’s converted to DHT will shrink hair follicles.
Hair doesn’t make the man. Remind yourself of everything else you have to offer. Or take care of things you can control, like staying in shape. It’s OK to look to others for support. And if you need a little inspiration, think of bald men or guys with shaved heads who ooze confidence, like The Rock, Vin Diesel, and Pitbull. Consider yourself in good company.
According to the American Hair Loss Association, nearly two-thirds of men experience some degree of hair loss by the time they are 35. By age 50, as many as 85 percent of men experience hair loss and thinning.
Why you should avoid dyes: Synthetic hair dyes contain harsh chemicals such as ammonia, hydrogen peroxide, p-phenylenediamine, which can cause hair damage, brittleness and scalp irritation. Repeated exposure can also harm the hair follicles, potentially resulting in thinning and hair loss. Plant based dyes such as henna can produce gorgeous hair colors ranging from red to dark brown.

Twenty to hundred hair falls is not a serious problem. You will get back your hair. But when the number will be more and the lost hair will not come back, it will be a matter of concern. Many things can be blamed for such condition including genetic, medication, stress, hormonal changes, lack of vitamins, or thyroid disease. But you can improve the condition with the following home remedies.
Since hair naturally grows in groupings of 1 to 4 hairs, current techniques harvest and transplant hair “follicular units” in their natural groupings. Thus modern hair transplantation can achieve a natural appearance by mimicking original hair orientation. This hair transplant procedure is called follicular unit transplantation (FUT). Donor hair can be harvested in two different ways: strip harvesting, and follicular unit extraction (FUE).
The Indian gooseberry or amla provides a great many benefits to your hair and scalp. It contains tannins, vitamin C, antioxidants, kaempferol, flavonoids, and Gallic acid.
