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 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.
