Hair is a sensitive issue for both men and women. Hair fall, baldness, receding hair line, and thinning hair have given many people sleepless nights. The market is flooded with so many products promising hair regrowth and improving hairline.
But is it really possible to bring back the lost hair or prevent further loss? Yes, it is. As per my experience of treating thousands of patients of hair loss in past 15 years, hair re-re-growth demands consistency and will power.
We have successfully re-grown in thousands of patients with holistic approach involving hair re-growth diet, vitamins, serum and home remedies in mild cases. However, severe or chronic cases need prescription-based medicines and PRP sessions. The most important secret of hair re-growth is “Start the treatment as soon as you notice hair fall”
If you are reluctant to use Minoxidil for your hair fall, then you can try the home remedies for hair fall, especially if it is mild. While they may not give you 100% results, but they will prevent hair loss or promote hair regrowth to some extent.
Here are a few hair fall remedies you can try at home:
