hair regrowth is possible . & if want to regrow your hair, just do yoga, use M.Gardson recovery method & take vitamins.
the regimen that really worked for Me
Pediatrician Dr. Kamlesh Verma's  Response
if your dandruff is under control & still u r having the problem then first of all take vitamin k [biotin] tab for 3 months & keep the stress away. Apply egg + olive oil + glycerine for 15 min before shampooing . Use mild shampoo & always use conditioner after shampoo.

no, masturbation is not a cause. As u said that u have a family history so the reason behind is genetic. You need to apply 5% minoxidil aiong with tab biotin 10mg for at least 6months to get effect.

EVEN i am using mintop 5% solution .from past 6 months..the hair fall will be reduced only after using it for atleast 2 months..it really worked for me...but u should be very regular in using it...and apply daily and never miss even a single day...and its better to use biotin tablets along with mintop solution..

yes you are correct. i met a dermatologist even he said the same that masturbation does not lead to any side effects or hairfall. He said its male pattren baldness he gave me Minitop hair solution to apply, as my hairfollice was there in hair root. and gave me hair protein tablet trichovit. since a week i am using it, but there is no response wat shall i do, does minitop really work. should i carry my baldness life long........................

alongwith mintop one should take biotin tablets. i.e a form of vitamin-B , the results of mintop are good but will only last till the time one applies the lotion. once stopped the hair loss will again start. In case you experience headache, stop using mintop. Mintop can also aggravate dandruff and hence one should also use a ketoconazole shampoo.

ok is it, but doctor said my hairfollicle are good enough, he said that you will get good response in 15 days, but compared to before my hair fall has reduced, its growing lengthier, but no hair growth in the bald region. should i go for ayurvedic treatment

Hairfall at the age of 18 is worrying , but treatment are available. First of all take a good protein rich diet , wash your hair with egg protein with gently massaging the hairs, handle gently , take vitamins or in nut shell a complete diet. Avoid tension. , at last you can use Minitop hair solution

it is said you have lot of hairfall if you have a lot of tension in your head. remove tension if you are having  and eat good food and it will come down. but if is more then cansult a skin doctor who will help better.

You can Start using Nutriderm hair solution twice a day. It is not minoxidil and hence has no side effects. For dandruff you can use Sebowash and 8X shampoos alternately .

I began taking Cerazette contraceptive pill in march 2010 (to control my menstrual cycle that had gradually shortened to 21 days). After 3 to 4 months I noticed massive hair loss. I saw my GP who told me the two were unrelated and that I was probably "just stressed". The hair loss continued excessively and so I took the decision to stop taking the pill in September 2010. The hair loss continued and I returned to the GP who referred me to a dermatologist. The dermatologist said I "wasn't losing hair" and that my bloods were all fine. Fast forward to today and I'm still losing hair. My scalp is clearly visible and I look like an elderly woman who is balding. I'm 35. I am and have been using minoxidil 12% on my scalp for the past 5 months (from a private hair health clinic who say i have pattern baldness) and have seen no change. I'm desperate to know if this hair loss will ever stop and reverse? I have been shedding hair for 15 months now. In another 12 there will certainly be none left if it continues at this rate.
