hi rathim
u r right that monoxidil has temporary effect.
the thing u have to apply it till u want to retain hair.
no other medicine then minoxidil prove to be effective by US FDA.
so dont trap in any oil or drug magic
you can try tab finasteride after dr consulting

HI, I am Paritosh Mehta, and for some reason I decided to cut my hair extremely short. After 3 days, I now realize how my idiotic decision is ruining my social life. Can you suggest some way in which I can rapidly regrow my hair. There is an extremely important event occurring in the next one week and my urgency is justified. Is there any supplement, natural method, or any other way in which this regrow would be plausible.

I am 22 years old, Male, Indian but right now working at Taiwan since 5 months. I am very slim in physique - height 5 11 and weight 51 Kg. I have severe hair loss (baldness in front head, on both sideways left and right) since past 3-4 years. It mainly started with some allergy from some colors/ paints in a dance competition 4 yrs back. It started some infection of my front head (both left and right sides) with some pimples. At that time I used only Dettol and after sometime the infection disappeared but I guess the baldness began from that time. Then it keep on increasing and last year I went to a skin specialist and she gave me a hair re-growth solution named Tugain 2% (having Minoxydil ) and Tugain 5% after some more time. I used it for 3-4 months and it was very effective with regrowth of hairs on my front head. But then I came to Taiwan last year in Oct 2008 and continued using that solution. But in the first month itself that same infection/ allergy appeared again. Then I went to a local doctor here and it was a bit effective but it was not gone fully . Then I continue using dettol 2 times a day and started taking B-complex pills. And it was very effective and the infection gone. Then I started the hair-loss treatment - Tugain solution and within one week of its usage that infection again appeared again. Please suggest me something as in what to do next..
