How I started reversing Male Pattern Baldness naturally ?

This post talks in depth about how I started reversing Male Pattern Baldness naturally.

Using the approach I am going to share with you in this blog post I didn’t only stop my hair loss/thinning, got rid of my dandruff, oiliness and itching but I also thickened my hair in front, started regrowing hair naturally in crown (after 9 years of hair thinning) and advanced my hairline by at least 7 to 10 mm over the period of 15 months (and I am still continuing with this)

I did all of it using just Pro-Thyroid Diet, Lifestyle Interventions and Scalp Stimulation Exercises. I am also going to show you my photos from time to time.

When I was 17-18 years old, I had joined swimming. I used to wear swimming cap then. I did swimming for over an year. On one fine day, one of the friends pointed out that I had developed bald patch on my crown area and soon everyone started telling me about it. I immediately stopped swimming.

But I didn’t do anything back then because I didn’t know what to do. Then in 2009, I took consultation of homeopathic doctor in our family, he was quite experienced doctor and he told me that one of his clients started getting hair in his late 60s. The client name was Hrishikesh Mukherjee so I was very optimistic about getting results. He told me to take the medication for an entire year. I took it only for 3 months and because I didn’t see any results. I stopped taking it.

I am not very fond of taking my photos. Back then, I didn’t prefer taking my photos and I didn’t allow anyone to take my photos so I have very few photos available to show you as a reference.

My hair in 2006/07

My hair in May 2011

See my crown area, you can see bald patch there.

My hair in 2012

See crown area, May 2012. If you look closely, you will see partial bald patch at crown area.

After that I didn’t do anything to reverse my hair thinning. I didn’t experience any hair loss in all those years except in 2015.

In 2013, I started experiencing a lot of issues concerning my health.

Migraine like pain, late afternoon fatigue, not feeling energetic despite getting more and more sleep, skin rashes, food allergies, stomach upsets, frequent bowel movements, cold hands and feet and lot more.

I started adopting different types of diets and exploring different methods to help myself dealing with symptoms.  While researching forums for my symptoms, I came across few posts who had exactly same symptoms I had. According to those posts, these were symptoms of Candida/Fungal infection.

The popular advice,  I prominently followed was restricting carbs because that was the “ONLY” way to starve mold/fungus. For first couple of weeks after stopping carbs (fruits, juices, rice and almost everything) I felt great. I thought this is the key to get rid of symptoms.

After couple of weeks, symptoms started worsening instead of improving. I developed severe craving for carbs and no matter how much protein and fats I would eat, I didn’t feel satisfied. I started feeling irritable and started having mood swings. I started getting anxiety attacks. I started getting upset over  trivial things.

I started feeling more fatigued. I started having difficulty in sleeping. I started having more migraine like pains but I didn’t face any skin rashes so I thought I am getting better. I became even more stricter when it came to avoiding carbs.

I started having even lower energy, my hands and feet started becoming cold.

In July or August of 2015, I started experiencing uncontrollable itch on my scalp. I always used to have a moderate dandruff. No matter how many times, I washed my hair with different shampoos, nothing helped. For a day or two, my scalp used to feel good, I used to have no dandruff and itchiness and after that it would return with vengeance.

Shampoo used to strip off the natural oil in my hair and used to replace it with synthetic oils, so my hair used to become oily quickly.It was vicious cycle.

More shampoo–More oiliness–Even more shampooing—Even more oiliness

At the same time, I started getting clumps of hairs in my hands whenever I used to graze my hands through my hair. Earlier, it was gradual thinning, I never saw so many hairs in my hands when I used to graze my hand through my hair.

My hair become so brittle, they used to break very easily.

In August/September of 2015, while I was looking in mirror for combing my hair. I could see right through my frontal area. My crown area was visible. I didn’t like what I saw there.

Where the fuck did my hair go ?” I said to myself in the moment of shock.

I thought this is probably the end and I am not going to get those hairs back. To get over severe itch and hair loss/thinning, I started asking my friends about it. The popular advice was to shave your head. I didn’t quite like the idea of shaving the head so I went to barber and I got my zero cut (army cut) like this

For the time being, I felt relief from supposedly hair loss, dandruff and itching. I felt joyous but it was short lived.

One on fine day in October 2015, while I was sleeping, my father woke me up at 7 AM.

Sukrut, wake up , wake up. What happened to your hair ? Why don’t you something about it ? Have you thought of visiting a doctor ?

I woke up in the state of panic and asked my father about severity of hair thinning. He told me that my crown was in very bad condition. He told me that I need to do something about this.

My father had never warned me about my hair before but after he told me that day, it seriously got me worried. If he is telling it, there must be something horribly wrong.

At the same time, I used to visit a close friend of mine. He also started pointing out this to me every time and he started making fun of it. Whenever someone used to point at my hair or lack of it, I would start getting severe panic attacks. I started to avoid my friend/s but then I realized that it wasn’t the option.

I used to physically tremble just at the thought of someone asking me the question about my hair loss. Looking at my hair in mirror used to give me panic attacks.

I didn’t know any other options.I only knew about one option. Hair Transplant.

In December 2015, I visited my friends sister wedding, there I met my friends friend who was in his early 40s, completely bald, when he was young, he also explored different options to treat his hair thinning but he didn’t succeed.

So I discussed different options of hair transplants with him including when I should go for it and which clinic I should visit.

He told me to wait till the time I lose all of my hair. He also told me not to cut corners when choosing a hair loss clinic. Choose the best one.

But then I came across research on Hair Transplants, I decided to stay away from it

Should you really go for a hair transplant ?

This is what I did to reverse it.

January to March 2016My photo in Mid January 2016

In January, I still believed my stomach problems are caused by Candida infection and I was still consuming lot less carbs. Apart from that, my diet was not particular. I avoided rice, avoided fruits and juices. I also avoided milk thinking it will aggravate my stomach condition.I used to shampoo quite regularly, every day or every alternate day. I also used to perform body-weight exercises and 5 Tibetan rites.I was doing nail rubbing (Balayam) every day at least once or sometimes twice.

In March, I started using Onion Juice. It helped me to reduce itchiness in my scalp but it was too much hassle to prepare juice. After few days of using it used to turn green. I didn’t face any smell problems but I certainly didn’t like idea of using Onion and then shampooing every day. Whenever I traveled, I had to carry the Onion Juice bottle and it created smell problems.So I got rid of it.At the end of March, while looking at mirror, I realized that I had regrown few new hairs in frontal area which were not there before.

Results : Very tiny regrowth in front. Itching reduced. Dandruff reduced a little. I used to wash hair daily so I didn’t see any oiliness.

April to June 2016

From April, I started increasing my carb intake, I started eating fruits and rice slowly. I continued with body-weight exercises, 5 Tibetan rites. I reduced shampooing frequency.I started using an oil (I don’t know the components, it looked red) which was supposed to grow new hair. After couple of weeks of using it, my close friend warned me that my crown patch had become even bigger. I told him to click the pics and show me and I realized that I had indeed lost more hair in my crown after using oil. I became alarmed and stopped using oil completely.

Note : I don’t know the effectiveness of this oil but whenever any treatment starts working, the first sign is little/moderate hair shedding at least for few weeks/couple of months. In very few cases, the hair shedding is heavy.Then I learned Galea relaxing exercises and I started doing it every day for 5 minutes along with nail rubbing. I shaved my head completely at the end of April because I thought I had lost lot of hair in my crown area and I was looking horrible.

Results : Itchiness reduced further. Dandruff reduced further. More regrowth in front and little regrowth in crown area.

July to September 2016
My photo in first week of September 2016, at my friend’s wedding.

From June I continued with nail rubbing. I also started Detumescence Therapy and Towel massage. After I started with Detumescence and Towel massage (especially towel massage) within couple of weeks, my crown area lost a lot of density. Almost everyone noticed it and asked me what happened to my crown hair. (see photo at bottom of this page)

Within few days, my dandruff, itchiness, oiliness problem went away never to return back. Since then I have shampooed probably twice in last 8-9 months. I started losing lot more hair and started seeing them on my towel. I continued with Five Tibetan Rites.I feared that I would not get those lost hair back but I was optimistic. Every single day, I performed Detumescence Therapy for 5-10 minutes and towel rub for 3 minutes throughout my scalp.

I started consuming Pro-Thyroid Food.More Fruits, More saturated fats, Milk, Chicken, Fish, Rice, Potato, Carrot Salad, organic eggs. I started eating 5-6 times in a day. I started measuring my temp and pulse test. My pulse was normal most of the times but my temperature at 3 was below range.If you want detailed advice on incorporating Pro-Thyroid Food in your diet, I have included that in Hair Regrowth Blueprint

I stopped eating beans, nuts. I also stopped gluten for a month and reintroduced it slowly. After stopping Gluten, some of my digestion issues went away and after reintroduction, they never re-occurred.I changed my diet to bring it up to the mark most of the times. After a while, instead of measuring temperature and pulse every day, I started relying more on my overall mood and energy. I started eating fruits or Chocolate Milk at night to reduce stress response in morning.My morning would typically start with fruits and I would perform light exercises after Breakfast instead of doing it on empty stomach.

Results : Dandruff, itchiness, oiliness completely gone, never returned back. Crown area density reduced. Frontal hair thickened a bit. The percentage increase in thickness was more compared to what it was before. I believe it’s the combined result of Diet, Towel massage and Detumescence Therapy.

October to December 2016

My photo in Mid December 2016

From September onward, my diet was more or less same. Other techniques were also same as I described in last 3 months. I added few new things to this regime. I started brushing my hair often. I also started hair pulling (from bottom and not from top) for a brief period (probably a month). I stopped using Soap completely (except washing my hands) I also started taking cold baths for a month. It didn’t quite work for me because I got cold.Whenever I used to pull my hair, 2-3 hair used to come in my hands (not much) but I continued it because my scalp felt better. I continued with Detumescence Therapy, Towel Therapy, Nail Rubbing. I started using Emu Oil + Castor Oil Mixture. I used it every 2-3 days.

Results : Hair thickened a lot in front, crown area started filling in very slowly but steadily. Dandruff, itchiness, oiliness was gone forever. My friends started asking me if I am on some treatment for my hair loss.

January to March 2017

My crown photo comparison

From January, I started supplementation with Vitamin D3, K2, Calcium, Magnesium to reverse Arterial Calcification and Fibrosis. I also started supplementing myself with Vitamin B12 to reverse grey hair. My diet was almost the same.I stopped nail rubbing. I use frequencies but not very regularly. I am quite occupied at the moment so when I don’t get time or when I am tired, I only do towel massage for 3 minutes.I started experimenting with Infrared Light Therapy. Exposing thinned areas to Red Light for 5-10 minutes every few 3-4 days. It gives me a hot tingling sensation after 5-10 minute long session.

I also started Power Yoga , Cycling and I continued with 5 Tibetan Rites. I stopped usage of plastic bags and switched to Tupperware.I have started using Hypnosis (recording affirmations in your own voice and listen to it overnight or when you are resting or working) I have continued using Emu Oil + Castor Oil Mixture. I use it every 5-6 days.

Results : My frontal hair has thickened a lot. Crown area has started filling up. Density in more than it looks in pic. My grey hair has started reversing slowly. New grey hairs are not coming in or coming in very rarely. Almost everyone who meets me after 3-6-9 months, ask me what I am doing with my hair.

April to June 2017

In April, I realized that although I have made a good progress with my frontal 1/3rd area but in my middle 1/3rd area and crown area, there was no significant effect. I realized that I need to do something different in order to achieve this effect.I had only 2 results to show for. I had received several messages like “When I started detumescence/towel massage I could see reduction in hair fall, dandruff, itching

But there was one problem.I realized that Detumescence or Towel massage were able to induce the new hair growth or thickening of existing hairs but there were not enough to sustain growth from that point onwards.

Only right nutrition is required to sustain the growth and thicken existing hairs. Topicals might help temporarily but they won’t thicken the hair. Unless topicals have certain nutrients they won’t thicken hair. Period.When I realized that, I started reading more and more research on Hair loss exploring Nutrient connection.I came across several research papers on Zinc connected with Hair loss. I also started searching for answers on Forums to see if anyone benefited with Zinc regarding their hair loss.I found several threads on the same. Meanwhile I was also researching other nutrients which could potentially reverse hair loss. One of the prominent minerals was Magnesium. As Male pattern baldness is result of Calcification and Fibrosis. There was a lot of research and anecdotal evidence suggesting Magnesium can potentially reverse Calcification.So I decided to supplement with Zinc and Magnesium.

There was a supplement called ZMA which helped a lot of people to take care of Zinc and Magnesium deficiency and there were several people on internet who were benefited with ZMA for athletic performance , sex drive and hair regrowth however, there was a lot of contrary evidence suggesting that it didn’t help many in regards to reversing hair loss.So I was kind of in dilemma whether to try it or not. But I decided to give it a try for next 3 months. As soon I started with ZMA (which contains Zinc, Magnesium and Vitamin B6) within a week the hair at my middle 1/3rd started growing. In span of 1 month I saw good results. However, I had to stop it because I was having diarrhea like symptoms throughout the day and many of those who switched to ZMA based on my suggestions started having diarrhea like symptoms. While some didn’t face any of the symptoms.I started getting several people reporting that they started seeing improvement with their hair after they were on ZMA.However, I wasn’t sure about what was really responsible for hair regrowth.Was it Zinc, Magnesium or B6 ?

There was overwhelming evidence for Zinc so I thought it was because of Zinc. However, it was a big mistake because everyone who switched to only Zinc supplements, hardly any of them saw any positive results. However, some of them started reporting their hair started greying prematurely, So I stopped using it.

My photo in last week of April 2017 (front photo taken in harshest light possible)

Results : My frontal 1/3rd hair has thickened. Crown area has started filling up. Some of my friends confirmed that there was indeed an improvement in my hairs.

July 2017-September 2017

I started researching other strong links to reverse my hair thinning. I was bumping into dead ends all the time. I realized that I need to find a connecting link which explains the whole picture because resolving hair loss doesn’t seem like a separate problem, it seemed like it wasn’t isolated issue, it was a systemic problem. Isolated supplements may or may not help me.So I started reading a lot of books, research papers and watching youtube videos. I came across Morley Robbins video on Copper Dysregulation. I found it because I was researching copper in connection with my grey hair.

It didn’t make any sense initially after watching his video. so I started watching more and more of his videos.His advice seemed contrary to what other popular gurus were preaching .He talked about stopping Vitamin D, Iron, Calcium, Multivitamins supplement. Instead talked about adding more magnesium and food based supplements rather than synthetic supplements.It was first very difficult to believe his advice because whatever I had read in first 16-17 months, he mentioned to do 80% of the opposite. So I joined his group and started learning about his protocol.

Learn more about it here

http://gotmag.org/the-root-cause-protocol/

But I saw several others in group benefiting from his protocol so I decided to dig deeper into the research behind it and started implementing the protocol.First of all, I ditched all synthetic supplements.I first bought Concentrace Trace Minerals and added things like Adrenal Cocktail, added Silica and other things in Protocol. I started seeing smaller changes in my hair.

Morley talked a lot about Iron—Copper, Magnesium—-Calcium Dance.Watch his video and you will understand

If you don’t want to spend an hour and want less technicality, watch this video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=281NHbjJ1Wo

After learning Root Cause Protocol, I realized that my fatigue, IBS symptoms, hair loss, greying could be because of excess Iron. All I wanted to do was to get my blood tests done

My photo in July 2017

.

Results : I saw good changes in my other symptoms. Little improvement in my hair especially middle and crown 1/3rd.

October 2017 to December 2017

In September, I decided to check for my iron markers, vitamin D, liver enzymes, Ceruloplasmin, serum copper, serum zinc.Here are my values.I realized that my Iron markers are very high and I needed to reduce it. Check my reports below.

I went for blood donation. I also started taking Rice Bran, Wheatgrass. This helped me to successfully deal with many health issues I was still having. Changing my diet in September 2016 helped me a lot in many issues, however, there were other issues still there.

First improvement I had seen was reduction in fatigue. Earlier by quitting wheat and changing my diet, I had already seen the improvement in my fatigue and IBS but after a blood donation, I saw very good changes.I continued with Concentrace Trace Minerals till it lasted. Once they were over, I didn’t take any Magnesium supplement.

In November,I was supposed to fly to US for Business and Leisure Trip.When I flew to US, I was terrified because I thought I had to deal with IBS, Hair Loss and several other issues because Food System in US is seriously bad.

Genetically modified foods, Iron Fortified Foods etc etc.

Being an Indian and being health conscious, I never wanted to eat french fries, burgers, low fat milk etc etc. I chose not to eat bread, pasta there, stuck to fruits, seafood, rice, beans. I didn’t face any problems in US. Thank GOD.Even when I used to wash my hair with shampoo, I still didn’t face excessive hair loss.Here is me with my mentor Ryan LevesqueWhen I came back, I again went for blood donation and then I continued with Wheatgrass, Rice BranAll values came into the range except D and I know why that could have happened. I stopped my Magnesium for 3 months. I don’t know why but I just stopped it.

Results : When I came back, I did see marginal improvement as confirmed by some of my friends.

January 2018 to March 2018

In January, I got my 23andme reports.Here are test results of my Genetic TestingSo by genetic standards, I am not supposed to lose hair by age 40 but I still lost it and I have started regaining it so you can say that it’s possible to activate or deactivate genes based on your diet and lifestyle.

I also started getting more magnesium, Vitamin A, I added Egg Yolks, Nutritional Yeast, Cacao Beans, Food based B, E Vitamins, Red Palm Oil. I started seeing major changes within few weeks.Earlier, although I had decent results in middle 1/3rd area, I was not able to part my hair sideways because they didn’t grow long beyond certain length but after this regimen, especially I believe course of B-Vitamins over 6-8 weeks, the hairs which were stagnant for last 8-10 years started growing back.

I don’t know it’s only because of B Vitamins or something else. I think they have played a major role. The key is getting most of them from food or food based supplement and not from Synthetic supplements. It’s not biotin. Biotin will help you to grow your hair faster but it won’t thicken or regrow the hair which are stagnant.The key to get all Vitamins and Minerals from high quality foods or superfoods.Pasture Raised Egg Yolks, Bee Pollen, Unfortified Nutritional Yeast, STabilized Rice Bran (Brown Rice) for B-Vitamins

Here are my current photos from Mid March 2018http://i.prntscr.com/2Qm6zOV7QUeBziNUBYWAEQ.png

Results : Crown Area almost filled. I can part my hairs sideways without leaving any gaps, earlier, there used to be big gaps, now they are hardly there, unless I try to create it.Using oil still shows gap.So when it comes to reversing hair loss (stopping hair loss/thinning and regrowing new hair) it comes to implementing step by step approach.

April to June 2018

From May, I started regularly eating Pasture Raised Egg Yolks (at least 6 a day), I also started consuming more Pumpkin, Sunflower Seeds (10-20gms each)

I started consuming Organic Plant Protein, Hemp Protein, Kelp, Bee Pollen, Cacao Nibs, Unfortified Nutritional Yeast, Borax(to get Boron)

I started seeing further improvement in my hair. (You can see further improvement in crown area despite hair length being 4-5 cm less than previous photos)

In May, I again had chance to travel to Chicago, I didn’t face much problems with food.

Me with my Mentor Perry Marshall in Chicago

This was my journey, if you want to stop your hair loss, I have developed 5 step game plan to identify root causes, resolve them using diet & lifestyle changes, scalp stimulation exercises to stop hair loss and regrow hair naturally.

Take Baldness Risk Factor Quiz Now

Here it’s

Step 1. Root Cause (Remove, Reduce or Rule Out)

My maternal uncle and grandfather and thin hairs. My maternal grandfather was completely bald at the age of 40. My maternal uncle is not completely bald and had thin hairs since he was young. Same with my mother. Although, my genetic test shows something different.In 2013, I started having problems with leaky gut, food allergies, frequent bowel movements etc.I went on a low-carb diet. The low carb diet is usually bad for hair. Your entire metabolism runs on fatty acids instead of burning glucose. It’s very inefficient fuel compared to glucose.  It causes hair follicles begin to miniaturize.I used to wash my hair with hard water for first half of 2015 and I used to shampoo my hair very regularly.When I started finding different possible triggers of hair thinning, I started eliminating them one by one. It wasn’t possible to eliminate every trigger but it was possible to reduce side effects of them. I started doing it with Diet, Scalp Stimulation Exercise and Lifestyle Interventions.If you want to find possible triggers, check out the program I have developed : Hair Regrowth Blueprint

Step 2. Reset Scalp

In order for hair to grow or regrow, your scalp has to be in optimum condition. If you have condition like excessive oiliness, itchiness, fungal infections, no matter how many different attempts you make to regrow new hair, the results will not be optimal.If you want help to reduce dandruff, itchiness and oiliness of your scalp, check out this blog post

How to cure dandruff, reduce oiliness of scalp and resolve itch permanently ?

I achieved optimum scalp condition through diet, Detumescence Therapy and Towel Massage.Detumescence Therapy consists of Pinching, Pressing and Stretching the scalp to reverse local calcification & fibrosis and restore natural blood supply. Towel massage achieves the same purpose at much faster pace.If you have lost almost all of hair, Detumescence is more effective to you and if you still have a lot of tiny hair still intact, towel massage is the best way to go forward.In Hair Regrowth Blueprint, I answer most of the questions revolving around Detumescence Therapy and Towel Massage.

Step 3. Reactivating Dormant Hair Follicles

To reactivate dormant hair follicles, I employed several methods.Notable ones are Detumescence Therapy and Towel massage. I also used Nail Rubbing, Onion Juice, Five Tibetan Rites and Emu+Castor Oil.In late 2016, I also started using supplementation like Ca along with Vitamin D3 and K2 to reverse Arterial Calcification. I started drinking Guava + Orange Juice every week to reverse Fibrosis. (Guava contains Apigenin and Orange contains Naringenin and both of them are known to reverse Fibrosis)

Step 4 : Regrow HairUsing right food, supplements for deficiency or therapeutic purposes at right time which will not only optimize your metabolism and reduce metabolic stress but also help you grow your hair which were miniaturized or were not growing earlier to fuller length and keep the existing hair.

Step 5 : Retain HairOnce you get your hair back, even if you start facing hair loss at any other time, you need to know troubleshooting steps to backtrace possible causes of hair loss and reverse it.So if you want to use this 5 Step Methodology to identify possible causes of your Hair Loss/Hair Thinning and, stop it and start regrowing your hair naturally like I did, check out Hair Regrowth Blueprint

Summary

Pro-Thyroid Diet
Diet popularized by Ray Peat which supports Thyroid but you shouldn’t eat fish, nuts, seeds, legumes, beans, grains. I tried for 6–8 months, I got good improvement in front. But it’s not sustainable. I now eat everything in moderation.

What you should do ?

a. Stop all types of diets like Keto Diet, Low Carb Diet, Low Fat Diet, Fruit Only Diet, Raw Food Diet or any kind of weight loss diet
b. If possible, stop all medications like Vitamin A (Acne Medication), Painkillers, Gout Medications, Beta Blockers, Female Hormones, Male Hormones, Steroids/Immunosuppressants with or without Doctor’s permission as you think is suitable. (I am not a Licensed Practitioner or Doctor)
c. Stop Foods you are sensitive to and/or switch to higher quality foods 
Stop eating prepackaged wheat flour, eat wheat flour from mill. (This suggestion alone can help you reversing hair loss)
d. Work on your mind first. Although you might think it’s not very important, I believe that it has major impact on your health and hair loss. There are certain methods I have used like EFT, Emotion Code, Journaling, Non-dominant hand writing, forgiveness etc et
e. Improve your digestion by killing gut infection and restoring Gut Bacteria. (No antibiotics please)

1. Stop smoking, drinking, drugs, weeds
2. Change cooking oil to ghee, cold pressed coconut or groundnut oil
3. No Whey Protein or Soy or any man made protein extracted from foods. Eat real food even if it’s expensive
4. No Vitamin D, A, Zinc, Copper, Iron and Multi-Vitamin supplement
5. Donate blood every 3–4 months. (Very very important)
6. Add more magnesium rich foods in your diet sunflower, pumpkin, watermelon seeds, cacao, Magnesium Oil (to spray not to eat), hemp seeds etc etc
7. No oats, corn flakes, soya, museli and canned or packaged foods/snacks
8. Add B Vitamin rich foods, Moringa, Bee Pollen, Unfortified Nutritional Yeast, Brown Rice, Pasture raised egg yolks etc etc
9. Add Vitamin A rich foods especially animal based like Egg Yolks, Fish
10. Add lots of different types of fruits in your diet
11. Dont try to block DHT, IL-6, Prostaglandin D2 and other inflammatory mediators.

How to cure dandruff, reduce oiliness of scalp and resolve itch permanently ?

As long as I remember, I always had dandruff issues. It started around the same time I entered puberty.

No matter what I did in the past to resolve this condition, nothing happened.

I used shampoos quite regularly but nothing seemed to help. Shampoos helped me to get rid of dandruff for 2-3 days but the dandruff came back again with vengeance.

So I started researching on dandruff.

Here is Wikipedia entry
Dandruff is the shedding of dead skin cells from the scalp. As skin cells die, a small amount of flaking is normal; about 487,000 cells/cm2 get released normally after detergent treatment. Some people, however, experience an unusually large amount of flaking either chronically or as a result of certain triggers, up to 800,000 cells/cm2, which can also be accompanied by redness and irritation.

According to one study, dandruff has been shown to possibly be the result of three factors
1. Skin oil commonly referred to as sebum or sebaceous secretions

This has a lot to do with sebum production. However, there are few things which you should always keep in mind which aggravates sebum production.
a. If you use shampoo to often, instead of actually cleaning your scalp, you irritate your sebaceous gland even more which in turn produces more and more oil and you have to use Shampoo again. It’s vicious cycle.
b. If you choose wrong shampoo for your hair type, it will end up stripping off all the oil which is necessary to keep your hairs moisturized. Use Coconut or Olive oil on regular basis to keep your hair moisturized.
c. If you have tendency to secrete more oil, you also need to check your dietary intake of Vitamin A. It’s very essential to control excessive sebum production. Excess of Vitamin A can cause problems too.

2. The metabolic by-products of skin micro-organisms (most specifically Malassezia yeasts)
This is very common infection on scalp. It’s believed that it’s caused by Fungus (and/or Bacteria) which feeds on Sebum.

To get rid of this, I have used Onion and Garlic juice, it was very beneficial to get rid of it. Onion/Garlic/ACV juice applied topically also stops hair loss and regrows new hair.

Does Onion Juice really work to stop hair loss, get rid of dandruff & itch and regrow hair naturally ?

3. Individual susceptibility and allergy sensitivity

I faced this problem for a longer duration. Whenever, I ate certain foods, whenever I didn’t get enough sleep and whenever I was stressed, I used to see either a lot of dandruff or constant oiliness/itching.

I methodically identified such foods and started changing my lifestyle in order to reduce consumption of such foods and adjust my lifestyle so that I counteract effects of stress using right food and right methods.

So what you can do to completely get rid of dandruff, itch and oiliness on your scalp ?
1. Try to consume diet which will correct your Hormonal Imbalance.
2. Check your intake of Vitamin A. (Excess of it can negate good effects of it)
3. Use specific types of scalp massages which will help you to get rid of excessive sebum production in 2-4 weeks (and more in case if you have this issue for longer duration) Learn more about it here
4. Use Towel rub to get rid of excessive dandruff, reduce oil formation on your scalp while stimulating dormant hair follicles. If you don’t do it correctly, you probably won’t get any results or negative results. Learn Towel Rub Technique here.
5. Use Shampoo less frequently and use shampoo which is suitable for your hair type.

If you want to learn everything about how to stop hair loss/hair thinning, resolve dandruff, itch and oiliness and start regrowing hair naturally, I have created a comprehensive resource which will help you to achieve all these things naturally, it’s called “Hair Regrowth Blueprint

Does Masturbation cause Hair Loss ?

The answer is “YES” and “NO
I am going to shed some light on recent research and educate you so that you can take your own decision of whether you want to masturbate or not. If you want to masturbate, then how frequently you need to do it.
This is grey area and sort of taboo. No one really wants to discuss this openly. Everyone hates it if they were given just a blanket piece of advice, so I am not going to tell you what to do. I am going to educate you so that you can take that decision by yourself.
Let’s consider few very important things about those who Masturbate
1. Almost every person who is addicted to this habit uses Porn to stimulate himself and it becomes their automatic unconscious response.
However, it creates addictive cycle of Chronic masturbation. The person doesn’t use Porn & Masturbation just to get that Dopamine high but they also use it as a self medication.
a. Can’t deal with stress —- Masturbate
b. Can’t deal with negative emotions —- Masturbate
c. Bored —- Masturbate
There are certain side effects of over masturbation (with porn or without porn)
1. Premature Ejaculation
2. Weakness/Low Libido
3. Loneliness
4. Severe Social Anxiety
5. Shame/Guilt
However, self stimulation with porn or (without it) feels good for a while it changes our brain chemistry and alters our neural pathways where masturbation becomes a habit where the person overdoes it just to chase that feeling.
But in the process of overdoing it, you fatigue your adrenal glands out and your adrenal gland produces more cortisol which in turn suppresses normal thyroid function.
After you ejaculate, your dopamine tends to lower while prolactin level increases (which is a marker of sexual satiety)
Increased Serum prolactin levels is known to cause suppress thyroid.
Anything that suppresses normal thyroid function is likely to cause oxidative stress  in our body which can aggravate hair loss.
Then why everyone doesn’t lose hair ?
Oxidative stress manifests different in everyone differently. It is also influenced by Genetic factors.
Here are some effects of it.

So what should I do ? Should I stop masturbating ? What about Sex ?
I would not suggest you go to any extreme. You can still masturbate. You can still have sex. Moderation is the key.
What’s healthy masturbation ?
Doing it while fantasizing about real person. Don’t fantasize using graphic novels or Soft-core Porno books like 50 shades of Grey, don’t do it while watching bikini clad models or using soft porn or hardcore porn and other extremities.
Of course, I don’t need to teach you all this. Cut out sources which will increase your reliance on these arousal factors.
Watching Game of Thrones is also similar to watching porn.
The more you are exposed to it, the more you will get addicted.
Watch this video which sums up everything.

What’s the healthy frequency ?
I don’t know. It depends from person to person.
I read somewhere that go without masturbation for a time period till you have night fall, if you have nightfall after 7 days, then you should masturbate every 7 days.
Some people don’t experience nightfall despite abstaining from it for long time. What they should do ? They should try to find frequency where they actually feel good after they masturbate (on mental and physical level) and don’t get feel guilt, shame about doing it.
Sex is better than Masturbation (Don’t get any wild ideas)
I am not advocating that you should have sex over masturbation. If you are in a committed relationship or marriage, you may prefer actual sex rather than masturbation. (Again, it’s my personal opinion, feel free to disagree with me)
I am not going to impose my opinion on you. You have common sense and you better know what to do with your life and you know the consequences of it.
Remember, I am not talking about random hookups or paying someone to have sex. It’s similar to watching porn and it still perpetuates addiction cycle.
In conclusion, I want to say that, there is no clearly established link between Masturbation and Hair Los. I think there are still a lot of holes to fill in, and contradiction that need to be addressed. That’s not to say there aren’t benefits to abstaining from masturbation. There are definitely benefits. But unless you’re operating in the extreme frequencies, it’s probably only a slight factor for hair.
So now you know what you should believe what you shouldn’t. Being said that, if you want stop believing in all the myths , want scientific ways to stop hair loss and regrow hair naturally, check out Hair Regrowth Blueprint

Does Onion Juice Really work in stopping Hair loss and regrowing new hair ?

The answer is YES as well as NO
I know you probably won’t be expecting this answer.
If you watch youtube videos, read Quora, you will find numerous stories of people who had success with using Onion Juice to stop hair loss and regrow new hair.
But you don’t know what happened to them after they stopped using Onion juice.
While, there is no doubt that Onion/Garlic/ACV juice will help a lot of people temporarily but if you want long lasting results, that’s probably not the best way to go.

Let me share with you my hair loss story. When I was 19 years old, I started losing hair. At that time, it was very small patch at my crown area. Almost invisible. Someone had to look deeper in order to see it . Over the period, it started growing, I also started thinning my hair. After not providing attention to it for 9 long years, here is how it looked like (I know it looks horrible)

I have used Onion/Garlic juice for 7-8 weeks with varying degree of success. First of all, it helped me to get rid of Fungal infection on my scalp permanently. That’s what I believed at least initially. But now I believe that scalp itching has more to do with internal imbalances than something external.

Learn how you can get rid of itchy scalp naturally

For first few weeks, it actually increased my hair loss and few of my close friends even commented that I was losing density in the crown area. I was very much worried.

Because some people purported that this Onion juice is going to be a panacea for all my hair loss issues. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the case at least with me. I admit that I didn’t use it for long time to see the real difference

However, when I saw the density of crown reducing day by day, I started getting panic attacks. Whenever I used to look at mirror, I used to get those panic attacks. Whenever someone used to comment on my hair, I used to get panic attacks.

I had already lost a lot of hair in crown, if I had to lose even more, I wasn’t just ready for it. In fact, I dreaded looking into the mirror for a while. After few weeks, the hair loss subsided. After 7-8 weeks, just because it was too much of hassle preparing juice, store it and apply it. I decided not to use it.
But I want to show you something much more interesting.
Here is the video of a person who used Onion/Garlic/ACV juice to regrow lost hair in 9 months.
Hair loss recovery after 9 months

Interestingly, this gentleman decided to stop using the juice for 4 months to see if it has any impact on his newly grown hair and guess what ?

What happened after he stopped using Onion/Garlic/ACV juice ?

He lost all the hair he had regrown in those 9 months. Then he again started using it to regrow lost hair.

If you also search on Quora, you will see few people mentioning the same. When they stopped using Onion juice for couple of months/years, they started losing the density again.
What does that tell you ?

Anything you apply topically whether it’s Minoxidil, Onion juice or magic hair growth serum, the effects will not last long. Of course, it’s better to use Onion juice over Minoxidil if given the choice but it’s just treating the symptoms. I am not advocating that you shouldn’t be using it.

If you want a long lasting solution, it will come from diet changes, addressing nutrient deficiencies, lifestyle interventions.

I have documented my whole journey here, check it out here
How I started reversing Male Pattern Baldness naturally ?

 If you really want to help yourself, you have to control metabolic stress from your diet and lifestyle interventions and not just applying more creams, lotions, serums on your scalp. That’s important to assist in faster regrowth but that’s just a band-aid solution.
As inappropriate choice of food and unhealthy lifestyle choices are the most important stress factors responsible for hair loss (and other conditions), unless you start correcting those factors, you won’t see sustainable results.
If you don’t believe, you can try all those remedies at least once while not taking care of food you eat and lifestyle you live. You will back to square one within few months or few years depending on metabolic stress in your body.
In my case, over the period of 8-9 months, I used various natural approaches including diet changes, scalp stimulation exercises and lifestyle interventions to stop my hair loss, got rid of dandruff and started regrowing my hair naturally.

Here is transformation

However, it’s not just because of onion. It’s a combination of everything I tried.

If your hair fall has different root cause/s like

1. Thyroid Imbalance

2. Lack of Vitamins/Minerals

3. Chronic Illness

4. Immune System Malfunction

5. Stress

6. Medications

7. Hair Products/Dyes

8. Hard/Contaminated water

Again, this is not exhaustive list by any chance.

(You have to identify what are the contributing factors for your hair loss and eliminate/reduce it in order to stop your hair loss) A lot many times, the metabolic stress comes from diet and lifestyle (and medications).

A lot many people think that whatever they are consuming is Healthy Diet. In my definition, healthy diet is the diet which reduces your metabolic stress and promotes optimum metabolism.

So Why Onion Juice works in the first place ?

Onion is rich in sulfur which promotes hair growth. Do you know something interesting Onion + Garlic works much better. Not just because of Sulphur but because of Vitamin B6.

So my suggestion to you is to get more Sulphur and Vitamin B6 from diet rather than applying it topically.

How to prepare Onion Juice ?

You can put it on your scalp for 30 minutes to 2 hours. If it’s irritating your scalp, you can wash your hair within 30 minutes with organic shampoo (SLS, SLES free shampoo)

To avoid onion flakes getting in your hair, use cloth to filter the juice and store it in a bottle. For best results combine Onion, Garlic and Apple Cider Vinegar. (Make sure Apple Cider Vinegar is Raw) Always use this brand. It’s expensive but it’s worth it.

Using it for a month, it completely stopped my dandruff and inflammation on scalp (but when I stopped it for a longer period, itching and dandruff returned) there was also reduction in my hair loss over 7-8 weeks.

Along with onion/garlic/ACV juice, I also successfully combined other methods to increase density of my frontal hair along with regrowing hair in my crown area. Have a look at some of my photos

If you want to learn how you can stop your hair loss and start regrowing hair naturally, I have created Hair Regrowth Blueprint, it’s 5 step system to stop hair loss, resolve scalp conditions and start regrowing hair naturally and the best part is you can do it with combination of diet changes, scalp stimulation exercises and lifestyle interventions.

Are Hair Transplants worth it ?

If you are losing your hair and going bald in your youth and considering hair transplant, read this very carefully before you move forward.

In my opinion, a man should never think of going for hair transplant (unless his career is dependent mainly on his looks) But hey, that’s just my opinion.

If you are considering one, I want to give you best possible information to decide whether you should go for it or not. If your answer is “YES”, I want to tell you how you can choose the right clinic to carry out the Surgery.

Once you know pros and cons, you would be in the best possible position to decide whether you should undergo this procedure or not.

What I am going to tell you is based on my own research. I am not a medical professional or dermatologist so even after reading it, do your own due diligence.

This may be a tough read if you are losing your hair and starting to explore hair restoration because I am going to try to talk you out of seeking the Hair transplant solutions that you are anxiously researching, in favor of alternative solutions and you may not want to hear that.

1. The final appearance may not look natural. The results can be worse than the natural balding process. The fact that there are so many unflattering names to describe some of the results of hair transplantation should raise some doubts in your mind.

Of course we can put hair on your head!”, the physician will say.

a. But will it be natural looking?

b. Will it be dense enough to be called hair, or will it just be considered less-thinning-than-it-was-before-but-still-thinning hair?

c. Is your baldness so disturbing to you that you are willing to risk looking worse?

Courtesy : Balding Blog

No matter how undesirable baldness may be, it is still natural , a bad hair transplant is not.

In many cases, you can stop your hair loss and reverse balding to some or full extent naturally. The problem is, it’s not an instant fix and it does take time. In some cases, it takes 3-5 years to completely restore your hairline. And still sometimes, despite all your efforts, there is no guarantee that you will completely regrow all your hair.

2. Hair Transplant Surgeons are notorious for depicting the best-case scenario, but poor at informing you of the potential downsides. There are potential complications that can occur with all forms of this surgery from plugs to scalp reduction to flap surgery. Certainly many of these complications are quite rare, others less so. In any case, your task is to identify them and their likelihood before committing to any kind of hair restoration surgery.

Always do your Research first.

3. More than any other branch of health care, cosmetic surgeons are in business first, medicine second. Your interests may be sacrificed for money. For some cosmetic surgeons, the elective & competitive nature of the business may force them to replace the physician’s maxim “First, do no harm …” with “First, get the money … second, get the client’s ass in the surgical suite and therefore committed to the process so that we can be assured of more money in the future … and third, try to do no harm as you make the surgical results the best they can be (even if the best option at the moment is leaving the client alone and doing no”

This trickery is used by used car salesmen to prey on weak people, it’s unethical and still many doctors do it.

4. The number of surgeries, that it will take to achieve the look you want, is unpredictable (if the look you want can even be achieved). Therefore, the cost is unpredictable. The degree of satisfaction that you can expect is unpredictable.

If you speak to a hair transplant physician about a surgical plan for restoring your hair, demand absolute clarification as to what is being guaranteed vs. what is being estimated and get it in writing. You are gambling with your money & your appearance. All successful gamblers know how to play the odds.

Do you know the odds of successful hair transplantation surgery?
Success is not defined by whether the transplanted hair will grow. There is little risk of that not occurring. Success is defined by whether the transplanted hair that grows will be of a quantity, direction, and distribution, all with respect to the remaining natural hair, that is pleasing to the patient and inconspicuous to most people he’ll encounter.

How to know whether it’s a good transplant or not ?
When even other Hair Transplant Surgeon can’t recognize that you have done Hair Restoration Surgery, it’s one of the signs that your hair transplant surgery is done very well.

5. You still have to use Minoxidil and Propecia (Finasteride) While many consider Hair Transplant is the holy grail. Nothing could be further from the truth. To maintain current level of transplanted hair and remaining hair, doctors still prescribe Minoxidil and Propecia. After spending fortune on Hair Transplant, you still have to use pharmaceutical drugs (and sometimes for life)

Reasons to avoid Minoxodil, Propecia, etc.

Your obligation is perpetual. You are bound to it for life. Stop using it and you lose the hair that it had grown or kept from falling out.

Horrible Side Effects

Limited location. When it works, it works on the crown, but not the front part of the hairline.

6. It is a permanent, irreversible process, there is always some uncertainty about what you are going to get, and you may not like your options if it doesn’t turn out the way you expect.

What are your contingency plans if the result of your hair transplant surgery is (a) mildly disappointing, or (b) miserably, devastatingly, catastrophically disappointing ?

If you try hairpieces or medications and decide that you don’t like them, you simply stop and let your natural hair loss continue. But if you start hair transplantation and decide you don’t like the process or the initial results, you no longer have that option.

Are you prepared to embrace those lesser solutions if the preferred solution (transplant) turns out to be unsatisfactory?

7. Physician selection is filled with subtle traps. Physician selection is the most important decision for the prospective hair transplant patient.
One issue that doesn’t get discussed often is: should you go with a physician who does this part-time or full-time? At first glance, the obvious answer would seem to be to go with the doctors who do hair transplants full-time. However, there is a trade-off depending on where you are in the process of restoring your hair.

Full-time hair transplant surgeons have the apparent advantage of getting the most practice and they are the most likely to be up-to-date with the technologies in this field. But their disadvantage is that since hair transplantation is their only line of work, they have more incentive to get you into the chair even if you aren’t a good candidate, because they don’t have other income to fall back on if prospects don’t sign up for surgery.

The part-time hair transplant surgeon has the advantage that the diversity of his practice, and therefore the diversity of the medical procedures that generate his income, attenuates his need to get you into hair transplantation. His disadvantage is a possible reduction in technical & artistic skill due to less practice.

It is difficult to find a hair transplant physician who can (or will) give you an honest, independent evaluation of your suitability for the process (i.e., Do you have the appropriate hair type and adequate density & quantity of donor hair for the area of baldness to be covered?).
The dilemma here is that the only surgeons who are knowledgeable enough to offer a qualified opinion are ones who do hair transplant surgery, and they may have an ulterior motive to get you signed up for their services.

Consider that, these days, virtually all consultations with hair transplant doctors are free. Then consider how many things you’ve received in your life that cost nothing and were of real value. Very few, right ?

My suggestion: Among the physicians that you are considering for your surgery, pick one that you think is good, but for one reason or another you’re not likely to select for the actual surgery (i.e., too expensive). Arrange a consult with that surgeon, but make it clear that you insist on paying for the consult, with the explicit understanding that this doctor is not a candidate to perform any of your possible surgery.

The idea here is to remove that doctors’ motivation to sell you the sugar-coated version of hair transplantation. It is better to pay something upfront for the possibility of at least one honest professional opinion, instead of just paying nothing upfront to hear a lot of optimistic sales pitches.

8. Your expectations, influenced by your recent history, are unrealistic. You probably have a mental image of yourself from the last few years when you had a full(er) head of hair. Consciously or subconsciously, that image is still your expectation of what any hair restoration should achieve. Unfortunately, hair transplants aren’t going to give it to you.

You probably haven’t lost enough to know your final amount and location of hair loss. As stated before, success in hair transplantation is defined by whether the transplanted hair that grows will be of a quantity, direction, and distribution, all with respect to the remaining natural hair, to be pleasing to the patient and inconspicuous to others.

If you don’t know your final hair loss pattern, then you don’t know two critical parameters: (a) the boundary line and density of your true, permanent donor hair, and (b) the area of baldness that you’re ultimately trying to cover. Premature commencement of hair transplant work can result in ….

a. The hair that is moved is misplaced in relation to the final baldness pattern.

b. The hair restoration process may extend over years or even decades, seemingly with no end in sight. Surely you’d feel frustrated if your home was in a constant state of renovation. Would you feel differently about your head?

c. Anxiety over the contrast between transplanted areas and new bald/receding areas, and how & when to fill these in with the least amount of disturbance to your appearance

Transplant work done at a young age is risky and mistakes may be difficult or impossible to correct in the future. Unfortunately, you can’t accurately determine your hair loss pattern.

9. If you are in your 20’s, a big part of your motivation for restoring your hair may be women. Your attitudes about them will change a lot as you mature. Unless you are an actor, media professional or some celebrity, chances are that your main motivation for considering hair restoration at this point in your life is social (i.e., to attract women), rather than professional.

Typically, men in their 20’s have a heightened interest in women of exceptional physical beauty. Your perception is that she expects the same level of attractiveness in the men she will want to be with. Hence, your interest in eliminating your baldness.

When you are in your 30’s and beyond, you will have a better appreciation of a balance between appearance and personality in women. You will realize that many of the bombshells that appealed to you in your 20’s, regardless of their physical assets, may not be the women of substance with whom you will want to have real relationships.

The kind of woman you’ll be attracted to as you mature will gladly accept your hair loss in exchange for the intelligence, humor, personality, and sensitivity that you can bring to a relationship (this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take efforts to restore your hair, it’s personal choice)

10. If you don’t address underlying reasons for your hair loss (it’s not always DHT), you will continue to lose transplanted hairs no matter what you do.

The real solution will come from addressing the root cause and not by addressing the symptoms.

While talking with several hair loss sufferers I have realized few things, many of them are plagued with faulty food habits, systemic infections, mineral deficiencies, root canals etc which is aggravating their hair loss. They blindly assume that everything is caused by genetic predisposition and somehow Propecia and Minoxidil is going to solve their problem.

I know, when I was having hair loss, I tried to address the symptoms for a long time but when I understood the real reasons behind my hair loss, I started taking action to naturally resolve those conditions. Not only, I started resolving those conditions, I stopped my hair loss, got rid of dandruff, started regrowing hair naturally and as a side effect, my energy levels, metabolism, digestion improved radically. also got rid of several systemic infections.

If you want to know the probable root cause, check out Hair Regrowth Blueprint

Hair loss is not your problem but your feelings of insecurity surrounding it. Your problem is Psychological (somewhat Physical) and you are not alone.

Do you have any other choice ?

a. If you are a male, shave your head completely. At first, you will feel uncomfortable. Some people will laugh at you and some people will start asking you questions.
No, you won’t look like Van Diesel. (Not even close) but you will still look good and you can embrace your look.

b. Do nothing, let your hair thin especially if you know it’s genetic balding (or choose option 1 if you are losing your hair in patches)

c. The other choice is you can start using natural ways to stop hair loss and make an effort to regrow your hair naturally (identify root cause of your hair loss)

What’s the worst can happen ?
You will still lose your hair and eventually you can decide to shave your head.

What’s the good can happen ?
You can halt/stop your hair loss and maintain it.

What’s the best can happen ?
You won’t only stop your hair loss and you will start regrowing your hair naturally. I haven’t completely re-grown all the lost hair.

That’s what I did. I stopped my hair loss and started re-growing my hair.

Here are some of my photos

I have a friend who is 1 year younger to me has lost a lot of his hair in his front (but almost no hair on his back, he doesn’t have typical MPB)

But do you know when he visited Dermatologist, what she did to him. She put him on Minoxidil and Finasteride. It helped him for a while but side effects were horrible. Nausea, Headache, More flaking, Problem in getting erection, lack of sexual desire. Maybe you can relate.

Do you when what happened when he stopped everything ?

He lost all his hairs in 3-4 months.

Then one day, by fate or dumb luck, his Dermatologist came to know that his scalp was the main culprit. Too late, after the enough damage was already done.

She even told him later that even hair transplant won’t help him because he will lose all those hair eventually. After spending a fortune on his hair loss in last 3 years, his condition is much worse compared to his hair condition 3 years back.

Horrible Hair Transplants

 

And still if you want to go for Hair Transplant (even after reading this) Consider this

1) As I mentioned earlier, pay a qualified doctor to examine your scalp to see which procedure is suitable for you (if you even need a hair transplant) Don’t prefer one process over another because the other one is cheaper. Each process has its own Pros and Cons. Take your time to go through them before you think of undergoing any procedure.

There are some procedures which will hurt your chances of having enough donor hair available for future procedures.

ACell vs FUT vs FUE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhZ4Ppnu66A

2) Do not consider going to a “chain” or franchise operation (I am not going to name any names here) In fact, avoid any operation that employs more than one or two surgeons. These larger outfits tend to focus more on volume and profit margin than they do on quality. They are not all “chop shops” of course, but there are too many horror stories about such larger operations, and it seems that you’re better off avoiding any medium to large sized operations altogether.

You want to go with an individual hair transplant specialist who has earned national respect for his work and is totally 100% focused on doing the best possible hair transplant work he/she can do for a small number of clients. You want to see lots of pictures of their work, and talk to some of their former patients (in person if at all possible, to verify the photos are true to life). What you should be buying into here is the skill and expertise of this surgeon, and you should take that very very seriously.

Going with a company or doctor based on price or convenience is a horrible idea that could easily end up ruining your life.

3) Many hair transplant surgeon’s before/after pictures are embellished, using specific lighting and tricky camera angles.

A quality surgeon doing quality work does not need fake pictures. Quality work speaks for itself.
4) You may require several procedures, depending on the extent of your hair loss and your goals. A surgeon can only achieve a certain density of hair in a single procedure. Setting realistic expectations for a procedure is a huge key to achieving ‘success’. Keep this in mind.

If you want to know how I stopped my hair loss, got rid of scalp conditions and started regrowing my hair naturally. I have developed “Hair Regrowth Blueprint” a step by step system which will help you to naturally stop hair loss, resolve scalp conditions and start regrowing hair.
