How to regrow the hair?

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..

It's a lot easier than you think. You can see a qualified trichologist or try to use Matthew Gardson's method. ,it helped me a lot ))))))))))))) ..

Yeah, it really works. Technically, a hair follicle never dies, it merely becomes dormant.
i personally have been looking into M.Gardson recovery method . It can still technically regrow hair.

Maybe you are allergic to Tugain. And by the way why do u apply dettol to your scalp? It may be harmful. I would say stop applying both Tugain and Dettol. The type of hair loss you are describing doesnt seem to be because of allergy/ infection. Men have this kind of receding hairline as they grow old. You are having it at much younger age.

Hi,
I have been using Tugain Solution(Minoxidil IP ; 2.0%) for almost 2 months now. I am kind of scared using this solution as instead of positive effect I can see I hve lost more hair...earlier the hair loss was not noticeable but eversince I am using this solution i can see more hair loss on my scalp. I can easily see the skin of my scalp now. As per my doctor initially it leads to hair loss. To see the effect i have to continue using the solution for at least 5 more months. Pls suggest what should I do as I am kind of scared of continue usage of Tugain Solution?

Hi there, I wish all gets well in Jesus name. Please check out about urine therapy online thoroughly as I am sure you will get some help with this therapy. There is no harm in gaining knowledge at least. I myself have been suggested tugain 5 gel but am trying natural/herbal/ayurvedic treatment first which includes application of herbal hair oil with lime to stop hair fall which has already worked on my wife's as well, then a paste to apply which feeds herbs to the roots to regrow and then a herbal food powder to make you strong from within. All natural with no side effects unlike any allopathic or artificial or chemical stuff . Let me know if you need information on this as I have started it only 2 weeks back. I have been promised that it will work and I pray to Jesus that it works. I also pray that by GODS grace every one gets treated by using natural treatment first. I read your question while surfing here and there and I cant promise if I will get back to this website again. I just thought I will reply to this if it can help anyone. I just made a new email id specially if anyone needs any info on the natural treatment and if anyone can help me with some info on hair regrowth or on post laser eye surgery. Many thanks - amit2010new@yahoo.co.uk
