hi shweta.. getting chemical straightening done is not at all a healthy practice.. be natural try some new hair styles which suits your curly hairs.. chemical straightening will damage your hairs.. be natural.. take take care.

hi shweta
hair straightening has side effect of hair loss.
but it is not permanent.
so no chance of become bald when u grow old.
but i said that it has some side effect that can reduce ur total hair count.
do it very rarely,as its chemical process.
i dont think hair spa has any role,only it will lose ur pocket

Hi Doctor i am 24 year guy from Mumbai working a S/w company. Offlate i have noticed lot of Hair fall and thinning of hair especially in the middle portion of the Scalp. I dont know from how long i was losing my hair but it was prominent since the time i suffered from Malaria. Now i have started Dr batras Homeopathy treatment but there is no significant result and i continue to experience thinning, i dont quite understand what should i do since it disturbs me very badly at times. I have learnt that Mintop Forte is good solution since it promotes hair growth. Is it safe to use it since many users have given negative feedback for this along with Positive ones too.

I have been experiencing this type of hair loss for 9 months now. Blood tests for Iron deficiency and thyroid are normal. I have undergone treatment from a dermatologist which included monthly visits for Kenalog injections and use Clobetesal nightly. I did not have an appointment this month as the thought was it may be my last affected area. Now I have 5 bald patches ranging in size from a nickel to half-dollar. It is thought that it is due to emotional stress as my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer last January and these spots started to appear the following March. My husband is undergoing chemo with little to not side effects and the treatment will add years to his life, so one would think I would no longer be stressed, I am grateful for that. I just don't know why these are still appearing and should I consider another method of treatment. I plan to schedule another appointment with my dermatologist and I am not sure what to ask for. Could you give me some alternative choices that I may be able to ask him about? I appreciate you being there. Thank you. Claudia Crowe
