Hair Regrowth in Male Patterned Baldness
Hair regrowth largely depends on the hair problem you are diagnosed with and how much it has progressed. For example: Male Patterned Baldness in its early stages responds well to treatment. In advance stages it may not be possible to bring back your lost hair but the progress of hair loss can be slowed down.
On the other hand, hair loss is 100% reversible in cases of patchy hair loss (alopecia areata), or after a bout of fever (typhoid, malaria), or anaemia. Hair loss is not reversible in scarring hair loss. It’s best to consult a trichologist for a personalized review for each individual case.
Most cases of hair loss require long term treatment (often for years). Hair growth cycle is of 3-7years. It is important not to lose patience during treatment because impatience and resulting stress will slow down the process of recovery.
Consider it a lifestyle illness, much like high blood pressure or diabetes where you keep taking pills for all your life to keep them under control. This holds good for progressive hair loss. You have to keep taking medicines for a long time, but then it’s worth your time and effort.
Homeopathy is free from any side-effects. Not only do homoeopathic medicines reduce hairloss but they also protect the body from harmful side-effects (such as decreased libido, ejaculation problems) that are common with conventional drugs.
With patchy hair loss (non-scarring alopecia areata) homoeopathy has always been the first choice of treatment by most patients. Homoeopathy helps to slow down the progression of the bald patches and fill them up with new hair. A complete recovery is possible in most cases with homoeopathy.
Recurrence of patchy hair loss (alopecia areata) in patients who are taking homoeopathic medicine is just 9.1%, whereas it was as high as 50% in patients who took conventional treatment for the disorder.
Homoeopathic remedies such as Thuja Occidentalis or Sabal Serrulata have been used for treating hairloss in homoeopathy since 100 years. International clinical studies have proven that the two homoeopathic remedies cited natural DHT-inhibitor (hormone responsible for causing thinning of hair), i.e. they can control hairloss caused by DHT without side-effects.
Hair lotions available in market to control hair loss are very high in chemicals and can cause a chemical burns on the scalp skin leading to permanent hairloss and scars in the affected areas. Homoeopathy has no such side-effects as the medicines are oral medicines.
Anti-dandruff shampoos are the only solution available to control dandruff. Homoeopathy has specific medicines for particular type of dandruff and also takes care that it does not recur.
Homoeopathy is a holistic medicine and treats the patient as well as the pathology. Hence PCOS and Hair loss can be simultaneously treated in Homoeopathy without having 10 different medicines unlike conventional medicines.
Stress causes hormonal disturbances in the body like thyroid problems/ PCOS which are known to cause hairloss and is very effectively treated with homeopathy.
Homoeopathic medicine being natural help to deal with hairloss in cancer patients caused because of the side-effects of conventional cancer treatments by anti-doting the harmful effects of cancer treatments and makes the journey through the treatment comfortable.
Homoeopathy is a mind-body medicine. Homoeopathy treats not only the physical complaints, but also targets the mind and gently restores mind-body equilibrium- thus it treats the patient as a whole. This makes homoeopathy an excellent solution for hair problems related to the mind such as stress related patchy hairloss (alopecia areata), hair pulling disorder (trichotillomania), or stress induced massive hair shedding.
A Few Tips
Men must shampoo thrice a week; women should shampoo twice a week, since they have long hair. Avoid the use of powerful, strong soaps on your hair. You may use a shampoo with natural extracts, and with good effect, too. Condition regularly, with a good conditioner. Oil may be applied once or twice a week along with a gentle head massage.
A calm attitude, good sleep, healthy relationships, balanced diet and a good hair care regime. Never abuse your hair with powerful colour treatments or amateur parlour procedures that may cause damage to the hair. Hair is a plant and requires a good quality manure to help it grow well and be healthy. Intake of nutritious foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts, flaxseeds will help to nourish your hair and keep them healthy. Trimming hair from time to time helps to remove split ends and managing hair becomes easier. The moment you notice hair loss, dandruff or any other scalp problems, consult a professional trichologist without delay.
