Please proceed with your query
Hi, please proceed
Actually there is a history behind this
Shoudl i tell in brief the history ?
I am having hair fall since 11 years now .. What started as few boils has gradaully almost got me bald on the front and top ...
have tried all kinds of medication .. with none being close to conclusive
none have tried determining and addressing the underlying cause
i m currently on vitD3 medication ... I personally feel dandruff and fungus is a vital contributor .. can you help me permanently tacked this ?
I will surely try.
May I know the medications you have tried for dandruff and hair fall
I seriously cant remember those.. But it included those Keta shampoo, to homeopathy to rogain .. and everything possible
none have given any relief so far
tell me regarding the boils? how does it start and resolve?
casuing minor wounds and hair loss at those spots ..
then over the years hair kept falling gradually ...
Family history of hair fall?
A lot of doctors dismissed it as heriditary . I want to know as to how to determine that ?? Does it start this early ?
If hereditary, there would be thinning of the hair initially and gradually hair fall in particular areas.
yes thats what seems to happening to me as well
father had baldness ..
But at my age of 23 .. my question is are there other reasons due to which the falling has been accelerated ?
is that a possibility ?
in your case, I feel that hereditary cause is main reason for baldness but the dandruff has accelerated the cause
these days i am using johnsons baby shampoo ( since i heard its mild ) .. every 2 days .. and use besan powder every other alternate day for hair wash
the water is hard as well .. But this dandruff ting i have been having for many many years now ...
No i never had that
I understand your concerns but you need to understand that there is no treatment to regain the lost hair.
The treatment available can only help to delay in hair loss.
I suggest you to use KZ shampoo every day.
avoid combing of wet hair.
I guess i had used that shampoo you had mentioned ..
But say if i take bath in the morning .. by evening the itching creeps in and becomes worse
Yes, start it again but everyday and also every week you have to follow this method of hair wash.
First wet your hair with water and apply any mild shampoo over the hair. do not do deep massaging of the scalp and just apply on the hair.
keep it for 10 to 15 mins.
after that wash it with water.
once done this apply KZ shampoo this time on the scalp.
apply well over the scalp and keep it again for 10 to 15 mins.
this will help in cleaning the scalp well.
can you please suggest one mild shampoo .. affordable ..
Try this method once in every week, if you feeling the itching has not reduced then you can try it twice in a week.
most of the market ones i have found too harsh for my hair .. generating hell lot of foam
You can use dove shampoo.
doc .. most of the shampoo has SLED
or vatika or any herbal shampoo
I have heard its extremely hazardous
You can go for herbal shampoos or sikhakai shampoo.
any kind of shampoo available in market or stores that absolutely doesnt have any chemicals ?
herbal shampoos like shikakai should be helpful. I donot have much regarding the brand but you can search in baidyanath or any ayurvedic stores
Do you suggest some more powerful shampoo instead of KZ ???
KZ is a good antifungal drug.
this should be enough. If the way used is right.
Try and observe for improvements.
do i just apply it or message after applyuing ?
Once in a week as explained before and rest of the days as normal wash but keep it for 10 to 15 mins.
This has to applied everyday without fail for atleast 6 months or so.
It might be required for longer time.
i mean how to apply KZ shampoo
like i use normal shampoo ?
Yes, as explained before if your washing everyday then as normal shampoo and as explained before once in a week with a mild shampoo.
I do wash my hair everyday ...
So i should be using 6 days just KZ shampoor and 1 day KZ + mild shampoo ?
Yes, use kz shampoo everyday and once in a week apply any mild shampoo first and then kz shampoo with scalp massage.
follow this for 6 months and observe for improvements.
along with minoxidil lotion too.
Any heat boils again do not scratch.
use bandenna or any coverings on your hair if you use helmets.
do not comb wet hair.
Hope you have followed the measures I have explained.
