Doctor :   hi
Doctor :  
how can i help you?
User :   Hi
Doctor :  
please proceed with your health query.
User :   I talked to a doctor at this same place few days back
User :   it was a problem related to my hair fall problem
Doctor :   ok
User :   i was asked to start using Nizral shampoo and Dove hair conditioner on alternate days
User :   and having taking HIRSTIM-HGF tablets after lunch
User :   i have started with the first one
User :   but i have not been able to find the prescribed tablets
Doctor :  
ok
User :   is there any alternative to that or it has to be HAIRSTIM-HGF?
Doctor :  
it is given as a vital nutrient for the hair loss in men specifically
Doctor :  
it can be made available, you should ask your pharmacist to make it available for you.
Doctor :   are you using the moisturizer cream too?
Doctor :  
how is the skin problem now?
Doctor :  
has it responded to the suggested treatment?
User :   It's been 3 days i started using Nizral on alternate days
User :   and dove on alternate days too
Doctor :   ok

User :   no oil
Doctor :  
you should continue to use it for 4 weeks
Doctor :  
and see the response
Doctor :  
and use a combination of these oils to oil hair atleast two times a week
User :   but i see very less hair now in the front part of my head
User :   i just hope that i am able to get them back
Doctor :   use a combination of sesame and almond oil for hair and apple gently on the scalp after warming the oil a bit with cotton
Doctor :  
leave for an hour
Doctor :  
use a steamed towel or steam on the hair
Doctor :  
for 5 minutes
Doctor :  
and then wash it with the nizral shampoo
Doctor :  
do not rub the oil harshly on scalp
Doctor :  
once the dandruff is totally gone
Doctor :  
you should continue to follow the oiling regimen
Doctor :  
do you need to drive a lot? do you use helmet?
Doctor :  
do you sweat a lot in scalp?
User :   No
User :   But last time, i was not prescribed about the oil before shampoo?
User :   What if i use halmets sometimes/
Doctor :  
each doctor has his own way to treat problems, so the advise may vary
Doctor :  
sesame oil and almond oil are known to have restoring properties
Doctor :  
hence advised for hairfall control
User :   o.k....
Doctor :  
sweat in the scalp weakens the hair follicles making them to fall off or break easily
User :   so rest of the prescription is fine or do i need to add anything else also?
User :   I have a lot of dandruff
Doctor :  
also you should use a thin cotton scarf or a cloth to cover your hair when you go out
Doctor :  
it will serve two purposes
Doctor :  
one- it will soak up the sweat and not let it accumulate near follicles
Doctor :  
two-it will prevent harmful Uv rays from further damaging the hair.
Doctor :   rest of the prescription is fine
Doctor :  
i am just giving you additional tips to control hairfall better way
User :   o.k....
User :   So i will just repeat what i have got
Doctor :  
sure
User :   Nizral shampoo and dove hair conditioner
Doctor :  
ok
User :   and massage with almond and sesame oil twice a week before using nizral
User :   HAIRSTIM-HGF tablets for 15 days
User :   after lunch
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :  

after you are done with 4 weeks of use of Nizral shampoo and/or complete removal of dandruff, use the Dove hairfall therapy shampoo and the conditioner along with the repair serum.
Doctor :  
also continue the oil treatment
Doctor :  
with using this following hairpack
Doctor :  
made of powdered XXXXXXXX leaves, methi seeds, a little coffee and a egg white.
Doctor :   do not use water to mix these, rather mix with the egg white, leave the mixture to stand/marinate for 30 minutes
Doctor :  
and apply on the hair and scalp, leave it for atleast 15-20 minutes, or if comfortable, til it dries
Doctor :  
and wash with lukewarm water or room temperature water thoroughly
Doctor :  
are you following what I am saying?
User :   yes i am getting
Doctor :  
ok
User :   but this solution is to used after 1 month use of nizral shampoo. right?
Doctor :  
i would also like to advise you a few more things since i deal with skin and hair problems
Doctor :  
yes, exactly
User :   yeah sure
Doctor :  
even otherwise you could use it before also, it wil help you
Doctor :  
hairfall stopping also needs a good balanced diet

preferably take salads with adding a teaspoon of olive oil in it
User :   o.k...

Doctor :  
also use a separate comb as advised following these additional tips
Doctor :  
medicine is to be used for 1-3 months depending on the need
User :   the hairs are so less that i don use a comb now
Doctor :  
in your case it will be better to use it for 3 months
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
that is better, in case you do use a comb, avoid using on wet hair, comb after hair has dried a bit

and use a wide toothed comb
