Hi M,
Thanks for writing in.
Androgenetic alopecia is most common type of baldness in your age group.
It is complicated by stress and environmental factors like heat ,pollution,hard water etc.
In general measures to avoid hair loss you should
- avoid stress, maintain good diet ,adequate sleep,regular exercise.Keeping good general health will add to treatment.

-Take one fruit every day.Take lemon juice and other citrous foods as they are XXXXXXX in vitamin C and anti oxidants.

-Do not comb when hairs are wet.

-Use widely spaced comb with rounded teeth(not sharp ends).

-Avoid hot water for bathing(use lukewarm water)

-Avoid hardening gels/ harsh colors/chemicals on scalp.

-Avoid direct sunexposure/heat/wind exposure to your hair.

-You can use nizoral shampoo for hair wash.


Also you can take some supplements like Tab Androanagen one per day.
It is a safe and natural supplement which prevents hair loss due to all causes.

Hope this helps.
I will be available for follow up.

Hi M,
Oils do not play any role in hair growth.It is only for conditioning of the hair.You can use any oil which suits you.

Androanagen is very safe.My personal experience on more than 100 patients is very good with no side effect reported.If you are worried or apprehensive about androanagen you can take tablet follihair New one per day.

Hope this clears the doubts.
Regards.

What are the side effect of doing a keratin treatment for a male ?? .. and is it very harmful ?? and what are the least harmful method for straightning the hair for a curly hair ??
doctor
Answered by Dr. Sudarshan 6 hours later
Hi M,
Keratin treatment is as such safe.Only formaldehyde used in the treatment can be harmful.Getting it done once in while will not do much harm but continous keratin treatment and heat given to hair break the sulfur double bonds in the hair can cause weakening of hair .There is no permanent way of straitening hair and every procedure has to be repeated.Going against the nature's will can be harmful in long run.

Hope this helps.

I am facing hair loss for the past 24 months, lost some hair on the center and front of the head. I consulted a doctor and he suggested to use foltene pharma hair rejuvenator supplement with keraglo men tablet. I used it for 2 months and the result was very good. The hair loss stopped rapidly and also dandruff disappeared. It was good for 2-3 months and again the hair fall increased.
