Que: I am only 18 years, but the manner in which I am losing hair, people would think I am in my 50s. On the advice of people, I have tried all kinds of things, including Ayurveda, but to no effect. The effect is only temporary and the moment I stopped using them, the hair loss returned. What can I do?
Ans: We understand what you might be going through and we can assure you that there is probably not much to worry about. Instead of trying out several things, based on what you hear from people, we would suggest that you meet with a hair specialist. They will check your scalp, hair and hair loss and give you a proper diagnosis. Based on that, you will be put on a course of medications, which will actually show effects. In addition, you need to make sure that you use medications that have been approved by FDA or USFDA, such as Propecia and Minoxidil. However, before you start on any such medications, talk to a hair specialist.
