Please Help... "Hair Thining"

Hello Doctor,

Just recently I was surfing internet for homeopathy and came across this wonderfully informative forum. I have gone through

almost all the posts and really liked the way doctors have replied to problems.

I am 30 years old unmarried guy (Software engineer by profession) with normal health history but last 3 years have been

different as my hairs started thinning 2-3 years back.I am loosing lots of hairs for 1 year now. Earlier I used to have very

dense hairs and it was almost impossible to see the scalp while even combing. But now my scalp is a lot visible. i think i am

I am already left with just one third of hairs I had 3-4 years back. But i am not getting bald all over. The problem is

mainly in the crown area which is also reffered as Male patern baldness. What I wonder is how the hair thinning started all of

a sudden. Though I never had smooth, soft, shiney, straigh and healthy hairs, Mine were very dense with volume but rough/hard

and curley. They are still the same in appearance except that they are less in number and a lot thiner now.

I took alopathic advice and have been applying Minoxidil solution on scalp and also some vitamin E capascules for last 5

months now. I have witnesed some success. Now there are many newly grown but thin Vellus hairs growing at the crown area but

this progress is very slow. Doctor says i will have to continue this treatment for atleast 1 more year to see worthwhile


As you can understand from above, I have become very conscious and passiionate about this hairloss problem so I am also doing

whatever can be done at household. Right from massaging with oils, applying eggs and fenugreek seeds paste etc... trying

different shampoos and conditioners but havnt seen any phenomenal success by now. My hairs still remain to be dull and dry.

I should also mention that I am a kind of introvert guy, take things easily by heart and get easily under stress.

My other rather less serious health problems are acidity and gasetric(sometimes).

I have never taken any homeopathic medicines before so please also tell me any relevent information regarding their usage.

Please help me.

Homeopathic remedy, SULPHUR seems to be very close to the symptoms.
drsajid last decade

Could you please also tell me how this SULPHUR should be taken. I mean the Potency, Quantity and Dosage. What exactly should I ask to my homeopathy chemist?
I am very new to Homeopathy so I need more guidance.
ashu2025 last decade
you please take only 1 dose of SULPHUR 1M, 5 drops in 1/4 glass of water, then wait for the progress,
and if you feel better or not, report back after 1 week.
drsajid last decade
Thanks again Mr Mahmood,
I hope I have understood it right. 5 drops of SULPHUR 1M mixed in quarter glass of normal water and drink this mixture. And repeat it daily, once a day. Will 1 hour before dinner be ok?

I will surely write to u you about the progress.

I wonder how I couldnt get attention of any other doctors here.
ashu2025 last decade
oh dear .why you not readed carefully my post,
i had advised only 1 dose of sulpur 1m, not daily, take only once, then stop and wait for the progress.

Actually I could not have guessed that only 1 dose could also work. Thank you for the clarification.

I will report back to you in 8-10 days.
ashu2025 last decade
Hi, I'm not a homeopath. I do believe it can work though. If you would like to try more herbal remedies, some herbs that encourage hair growth are horsetail, catnip, southernwood. One that is know to arrest hair loss is nettles. Hope this helps.
