Home Treatment

Whenever trying any hair loss treatment, it is good if the treatment is natural and does not have any side effects. It is also important that you cut back the use of chemicals, when going through extreme hair fall. Here's a list of home remedies that I have tried and tested and they have proven very effective for hair loss prevention.
  • Using natural herbal hair mix to shampoo your hair like shikakai
  • Using natural products for conditioning and hair care like plain yogurt or egg
  • Giving your scalp hot oil massage and steam regularly and improving your diet by including fruits and salads in the meals
  • Drinking 4 spoons of Indian gooseberry syrup and aloe syrup each, once in the morning and once before going to bed
  • Brushing your hair well and avoiding excessive tying of the hair
Medical Treatment
Seek medical treatment if you have irregular periods, itchy and painful scalp, unusual pattern of hair loss, balding of hair on eyebrows, red or abnormal scalp or sudden extreme hair fall. Here's a list of the medical treatment, which the doctor might prescribe to you as hair loss solutions.
  • Topical application of minoxidil
  • Dietary supplements for deficiencies and pills to treat imbalanced hormones
  • Hair transplants are expensive, but effective and permanent treatment
  • Laser hair treatment involves repairing damaged or thin hair
Women don't lose hair like men as they don't develop bald patches like men. Instead, the hair fall is evenly spread out throughout the scalp. So ladies it is in a way good that we don't get ugly bald patches like men, but go through the overall thinning of hair.
