My hair fall continue since 2010. But I think due to Medicine & treatment from patangali chikitsalay (Ramdev Baba), Homeopathic Medicine, Dr XXXXXXX clinic therapy and medicine etc. my scalp is not fully clean from my head but it is in very thin condition on centre and now I can see it is slowly coming on front.

While tacking shower every day approx 5 to 50 scalps are coming on my figure.

Yea I am taking medicine since 2012. But it not regularly.

“No” there is no any dandruff on my scalps.

“No” last illness was in 2005 and 2009 (My Right Leg Thai Got Facture, And My Right Knee Ligament Got Damage.) This two was the major accident in my life.

“NO” mam accept hair fall problem medicine I have no any other medical problem.

So please get back to me with your response.

Thanks & Regards

Brief Answer:
5-50 hair fall is normal.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX

Thanks for your information.
As you said you see 5 -50 hairs while bathing which is not worrisome.It is normal.
If you see hair more than 100 then you need to concern.

I believe you are already using or used topical minoxidil.
And you said your using medication not regularly.
I would suggest you vist a dermatalogist for finasteride 1 mg tablet which would help you.And use your medication regularly for 6 months and watch for results.

Mean time I would suggest you Biotin 10 mg tablet once a day.
1.Eat health vegetables and fruits.
2.Nutrition is very important.Eat protein rich food like eggs,nuts and fish.
3.Avoid dry hair which increases hair fall.Apply oil 2 hrs before shower and wash your hair,it gives moisture to your hair.
4.Use mild concentrate shampoo like baby shampoo.
5.Avoid oily,junk,fast and spicy food.
6.Avoid oily hair.Drink plenty of water.
7.Get enough sleep.Avoid stress.

Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any queries I will be happy to help you.
Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Decrease hair loss.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX
Thanks for your follow up query.

Biotin: It is a vitamin(B7) supplement.Usually food contains small amount of biotin.Biotin defeciancy causes thinnig of hair hence biotin is the first option of treatment for hair loss.
Finasteride:It is 5 alpha reductase inhibitor.It lowers a class of male hormone which leads to hair loss(alopecia).It slows hiar loss and it helps regrow the hair.

If you have not used topical mintop(Minoxidil) in past I would suggest you first biotin and mintop for 3 months if you will not see any results then visit a dermatologist for Finasteride 1mg which is second option of treatment.
While using medication you have to wait patiently for results It will take 3-6 months to see results.

Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any queries I will be happy to help you.
