One of the most effective home remedies is the use of onions in a situation where one is suffering from heavy hair loss. Onions in your kitchen can be a turning point when it comes to the facilitation of hair growth. The high content of sulphur in onions aids in improving circulation to hair follicles below one’s scalp. This can be achieved through tender grinding of onions to obtain the juice. Once the juice has been extracted, it should be gently applied on the scalp and left for an hour before rinsing with water.

Since hair naturally grows in groupings of 1 to 4 hairs, current techniques harvest and transplant hair “follicular units” in their natural groupings.

Donor hair can be harvested in two different ways: strip harvesting, and follicular unit extraction (FUE).

Scientists now understand that pattern baldness occurs through a phenomenon known as miniaturization.

Hi Ankit,I do not know about capsule.If you are using Mintop kind of lotion and the most powerful one 10X it might work.But thing is that you have to use that lotion for long time to get the result.And again once you stop using the lotion you will start to loose hair again.I was using mintop lotion and my cousin say it worked.I stopped it and again in last year specially from February I started to loose hair in great extent.See this nail rubbing,Sirshasan(head standing yoga) all does the same thing,supply blood to the hair.Among these 3 nail rubbing is the best one as it is cheap and easy to perform.One have to use lots of money to apply lotion to the whole head when he/she loosing hair from all over the head.But with simple nail rubbing one is capable of supply blood to the whole head.Plus do a little exercise(this will reduce stress),stop smoking or drinking or at least reduce the amount.On the other hand eat healthy as nail rubbing will supply blood to the hairs but your blood have to carry all the nutrients,right.Eating amla is truly beneficial.Do that if you can in form powdered amla,amla juice,or fresh amla from market.

6. Apply an oil or mask treatment weekly. Hair that touches your shoulders or beyond can be several years old and most likely needs more TLC than normal conditioner. Townsend suggests using moisture-based masks and oils weekly. “I make a natural oil treatment and give it to all of my clients to use pre-shampoo,” Townsend says. (His easy recipe: 1 cup of unrefined coconut oil mixed with 1 tablespoon each of almond, macadamia, and jojoba oils.) Because oils can leave a residue on hair, he says to apply it to damp hair, leave it on for 10 minutes, then shampoo and condition like normal. “These oils are able to fill strands up with fatty acids and then, when rinsed out, using regular shampoo helps seal them inside hair,” Townsend says, adding that Kate Bosworth, Diane Kruger, and Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen are fans. Not into DIY? Try an oil-based hair treatment instead.
This product had many reviews, and while many were positive, there were negative reviews that reduced its score.

Thank you. This has been the most helpful article I have read! Very much appreciated! Last question (I won’t bug you with anymore after this) . . . I was tested by my doctor and came out perfectly healthy so it is either stress or MPB. My job is extremely stressful so it could be that but I have no way or knowing for sure. As such, do you think there is any harm on me taking finasteride even if it isn’t MPB and is just stress? I suppose if the medicine didn’t work, I would know it was stress and not MPB. Also, I assume this is something I would continue to take for life right?

Laser hair rejuvenation treatment for hair loss consists of using a low-level laser light from either a laser-comb, a hand held device or even a laser helmet to stimulate hair follicles. Several double blind controlled trials have been conducted on laser devices to study their efficacy in treating male and female pattern hair loss. The results have been quite promising in that; considerable improvement was seen in the number of new hair as well as the density of existing hair. Increase in terminal hair count was even seen to be comparable to the results seen with 5% Minoxidil solution. Further research is necessary to define optimal treatment the duration of the results and the use of laser devices in other forms of alopecia. The positive aspect of this therapy is that it is quite affordable and the patient can even buy handheld laser devices and use them safely in the comfort of his/her home without any adverse effects.
Dr. Ryan Welter, a Boston-based hair transplant surgeon, warns that hot water dehydrates hair strands, leading to dry, brittle hair that’s more prone to snap and fall out.
