Hair Loss Treatment
There are numerous products for hair loss treatment are available but unfortunately 99% of all products are completely ineffective for the majority of those who use them. The American Hair Loss Association does not recommend minoxidil as the first line of attract for men suffering with male pattern baldness, but does recognize it as an effective treatment for a small percentage of its users. Similarly, in a study the FDA approved a 1mg dose of finasteride for the treatment of androgenic alopecia in men (male pattern baldness) had only 65% of trial participants experienced what was considered a substantial increase of hair growth. Propecia is the first drug in history to treat male pattern baldness in the vast majority of men who use it, but has side effects like sexual problems such as impotence, low libido and erectile dysfunction.

However, certain Indian herbs like Fenugreek, Shikakai, Indian Gooseberry, Bhringraj, Sapindus Mukorossi, Aloe Vera, Azadirachta Indica, Henna etc when used alone or in combination can atleast arrest hair loss. Ayurveda, the 5000 years old science of medicine, have in its books that few herbs can even trigger hair regrowth.:expressionless:
