lOSING 100 per day is normal

Doctor :  
Ok is there a receding hair line?
User :   receding hair line??
Doctor :  
The hair line is going back?
Doctor :  
or thinning of hair?
User :   Yeah, i have very light hair
Doctor :  
Ok, now the imp thing is to control the hair fall and reduce the fall

So first we have to reduce the dandruff which is an obvious cause
User :   O.k.
Doctor :  
Hence continue on the same
User :   Is HAIRSTIM-HGF a lotion or any tablet?
Doctor :  
a tablet
Doctor :  
First concentrate on the reducing the hair fall
User :   O.k so what i got is to use NIZRAl on alternate days for one month and HAITSTIM-HGF for 15 days, right?
Doctor :   Yes
Doctor :  
With Nizral the hair becomes dry
Doctor :  
hence use Moisturizing shampoo on the other day
Doctor :  
So daily you take bath, one day with Nizral and the other day with DOVE Hair conditioner
Doctor :  
Use warm water and not hot water
Doctor :  
Cold water is good if you can
User :   O.k.
Doctor :  
CETAPHIL MOISTURING cream on the skin
User :   and i don't have to apply any oil with that?
Doctor :  
that is face

You do not have to
Doctor :  
apply oil
Doctor :  
for next one month
Doctor :  
Keep the hair dry all the time while you go out

Doctor :  
and try to cover it with cloth if wearing a helmet

Doctor :  
Yes
User :   O.k.
User :   CETAPHIL is to be face after taking the bath?
Doctor :

User :   but the problem with lips has been for more than 2 years now
User :   the skin on the lips is not stable
