I am a 23-year-old male and have been losing a lot of hair daily for about one year. Now the hair on the head (except on the sides) becomes very thin, and the scalp is seen with an open eye. l have been taking homeopathy for eight months. But hair fall is not stopping. Will I go blad now? Is it curable by medicine? Kindly help.
I reviewed the images (the attachment removed to protect the patient's identity).
This condition is called androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness. It is a progressive condition that has to be treated to stop hair fall.
You have sent the picture of the vertex (top of the scalp), but I would like to see the forehead to assess the grade of androgenetic alopecia and suggest appropriate treatment options. Which homeopathic medicine was taken for the condition?
However, I would suggest some hair care tips.
1. Always use lukewarm water for washing hair. Never use hot water.
2. Do not comb when hair is wet
3. Do not use a hair dryer. Allow it to dry naturally after the bath.
4. Avoid hot iron straighteners; it breaks the protein bond in hair, making hair brittle.
5. Hair is made up of a protein called keratin. You need more protein daily, like eggs, fish, curd, milk, lentils, and chicken.
6. Regular exercise for 40 minutes a day, six days a week, to keep the hormonal balance intact.
7. Use a comb with a wide space between each tooth, and the tip should be blunt. Comb gently.
8. Avoid smoking; Nicotine decreases blood supply to the hair roots, affecting hair growth.
9. Avoid tight pony; it would cause traction on hair, eventually leading to hair fall from the frontal area. Instead, keep the hair loosely tied.
I hope this helps.
