Is garlic and onion helpful in hair loss ?

Hi, my name is selva from chennai. I am experiencing a lot of hair loss for the past 1year, but for the past few months , i am experiencing hair loss drastically. I don t know whats the reason, some say its DHT problem, some say its genetic. But i never minded these names for hair loss.i am just curious about controlling my hair loss and of course regrowing my frontal hair. Some say applying garlic or onion will help treat u hair loss and by applying regularly for 2months will also help in hair regrowth.Please doctors tell me is it true?, can these remedies will help me? Please its really disturbing my personal life. My age is 27, male, and i have a slight curly hair.loosing hair in frontal part, sides and upper middle section in scalp.

Welcome to healthcare magic ....
Hey hair loss has many resons - few treatable and many with no effective treatment.
Treatable could be 1)anaemia - low heamoglobin - get a blood heamoglobin levels checked and if low can get it treated.
2)Hypothyroidism - get your thyroid profile done and if abnormal get it treated too.
Other most common is Androgenic alopecia - thats due to a combination of genetic and harmonal effects-
treatments are 1) minoxidil solution 2% & 5% - applied twice to areas of hair loss , effects seen only after 6 months of application.
2) Tab Finasteride - once a day .
3) most effective is Hair transplant
