Hair Loss Remedies ~ Dermatologist Recommended

I want to share with you some products that were recommended for my hair fall (Alopecia) by a dermatologist (God bless him!) which have really worked for me.

There are so many factors that that contribute to hair loss. Hormonal inbalance, poor diet and a lot more (I won't bore you with the full list)

For me, I'm sure it was chemical related. The crown area of my head had very less hair and you could actually see my scalp playing peek-a-boo with everybody. Many people asked me why I was BALD! :O
The reason was I was doing too much to my hair. Straightening, coloring (at one time 3 times a month!). I stopped coloring my hair for about 5 months and now I've started seeing baby hairs poking up. 


Tugain ~ It is basically the same as Rogain because they both contain Minoxidil. 
Usage:  Apply 1 ml twice a day, at 12-hour intervals, starting at the center of affected area and spread evenly with fingertips (do not massage)

Biotin tablets ~ Namely Essvit, Hautvit.

Many people take Biotin supplements regularly to maintain healthy hair. Even Riddhima Kapoor....

told a popular magazine that she takes Biotin tablets everyday. The woman changes her hair color a lot! From deep browns to blondes to other shades of blonde, but her hair never looks straw-like. 

***I noticed that biotin tablets also make my body hair and nails grow rapidly fast too. So it can be a pain to have to wax, shave and file your nails more often than you do.

I also used Parachute Hair Fall Therapie (bought on my own) 

and I didn't use it long enough to see if it works for me because it smells horrible! Which makes leaving it overnight very disturbing, for me and the person sleeping next to me.

Some say rubbing your nails together stimulates hair growth. What do you think?

Myth 
or 
Fact?

  4. It's so funny you mention that nail thing, I was in the car with my mum and brother the other day and she was telling me that that grows your hair even faster. I didn't beleive her until my brother said that it worked as his friend who wears a pagh does it, he learnt it from yogi or something.

    I've been doing the nail rub since last week, I'm going to do it a bit long and see what happens!

  9. Aww hon, I am happy these things worked for you. Take care of your hair. I think hair is something you should work with whatever you have instead of fighting it. Once in a while its ok...but everyday straightening is a no-no.Hope its back to normal. xxx

  10. *rubs nails together* I don't know if it's true, but it can't hurt to try! ;)

  11. hey, I have tried this Tugain solution. I too have a hairfall problem since I contracted typhiod when I was 10 yrs old. So a friend suggested this. I kept at it, applying twice daily for two months, but then I just became lazy and stopped..

    Besides I read on wikipedia that this minodoxil needs to be used lifelong or else when you stop - all the hair that has grown becoz of it falls out in 6 mnths.. dunno if this true..

    But I had not heard of the biotin tablets..

    Btw, I too got this Parachute therapy - i noticed that after I applied it it would make my scalp feel a little warm, also it tinted my hair a slight brown color - nothing bad actually. I quite liked this oil :D

  12. @TM~ Sounds scary...hair falling out! I also read that u shouldn't apply stuff for too long coz yr body will develop high tolerance for them (?)
    Biotin tablets r quite good actually..esp if yr hair needs a little push. As for the Parachute HFT...i still have half of it..might use it during the day time :)

    @SnC~ hehe...yes can't hurt! :D

    @Shivanixx~ I know girl..I abused my hair too much n it sure returned the favor :D

    @Shifa~ U already have great hair girly

  13. Thanks for sharing this. I am having this problem since 12 years old. suspect it is hormonal problem. yet to find a solution. I am now using virgin coconut oil mix with pure essential oil i.e rosemary, lavender, grapefruit, peppermint etc. only massage before sleep and wash in the morning. can see some baby hair but nothing to shout about yet.

  14. Hey!!! just stumbled upon your blog and I must say it really interesting...

    When i got married i shifted base to Noida and water here is terribly salted and it completely ruined my rebonded long hair...My house was full of hair...after all those parachute hair oil and all I opened my old herbal remedies book and used hibiscus flower remedy..It did wonder to me with that i started having 2 fruits a day and calcium sandoz.

    Though i got my hair cut but now my hair are healthy and getting longer and thicker day by day..

  17. Interesting post! That rubbing your nails together thing - I've heard it before. I tried it out a long time ago, but I didn't stick to it (forgot about it eventually till you mentioned it here), so I can't say if it did work. :D

  29. hi..am suffering from severe hairfall..can you please tell me the name of dermotalogist which you have mentioned..i dont know any good one in delhi...thanks

  30. wow! I used to think I was the only one who had this crown thinning problem and lets face it, no girl would ever want to talk about it willingly.But I read here a number of us seem to struggle with this issue.

    Whether the cause is medical (I have PCOS)or pollution,bad water or even the injected vegetables in the market, this is a serious issue.

    Try massaging warm olive oil on ur scalp at night.its not only deeply hydrating and nourishing but also promotes growth.I tried this out on scalp and eyebrows and could notice difference in brows in 2 weeks.
    hope this helps.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
