The answer is a big NO! A real hair grower that can coax a dead hair follicle to rise and flourish from its grave has not been discovered yet! Any views and claims to the contrary should be viewed with suspicion and skepticism. The moment an authentic hair grower is discovered; that drug company will become the biggest company in the world, even much bigger than Apple.
Hair growth is a natural process but various factors like stress, pollution, bad eating habits and daily lifestyle can play havoc with this process. When this seemingly automatic process faces such obstacles, the effects are seen as hair fall, dandruff and other such hair issues. Then we immediately start searching for remedies to kick-start hair growth again.
Today, one has the option to choose from the numerous hair growth remedies available in the market. One generally requires medicines after a spell of hair fall or baldness, so ideally one should cure the main reason behind this hair fall. Though, there are several products claiming cent per cent hair growth, they cannot be relied upon. However, there are a few tried and tested, scientifically proven medicines for hair growth and promise positive results.
The top ten medicines for growing strong and healthy hair are listed below:
This medicine for hair regrowth is potent and has shown very effective results when taken in the form of injections directly on to the scalp. It is readily available in the form of pills as well as ointment that can be topically applied. Pills have proved to be stronger than the ointments and injections and are readily available.
Minoxidil is a well-known medicine for promoting hair growth. It contains 5% of active Regaine that prevents hair loss. However, this medicine takes months to show positive results when used diligently. A study has revealed that this medicine works temporarily and hair fall reoccurs whenever the medicine is stopped.
Finasteride is another medicine that works on the lines of minoxidil and is more effective in cases where men get bald. This medicine promotes hair growth in the crown region and even helps in preventing the receding hairline.
- Rosemary Essential Oil
This is an unofficial herbal medicine for hair growth and is a successful treatment practiced and promoted by a lot of hair experts. It has to be applied on the scalp. It helps in enhancing the blood flow in the scalp, which eventually promotes hair growth
- Kalium Carbonicum
Kalium carbonicum is a homeopathy medicine that is formed with potassium carbonate. It is highly beneficial for preventing the thinning and drying of hair. This medicine, however, should be consumed only after consulting with a homeopath expert.
Another effective homeopathic medicine for promoting good hair growth is Silicea. It is derived from sandstone and human tissues and highly effective in nourishing the hair follicles thus promoting good hair growth. It is available in concentrated liquid form and granules also. It is commonly termed as the `homeopathic cell salts’ as it is a part of the 12 tissue salts.
- Nioxin Vitamins:
This is a medicine purely based on vitamins and minerals and is known to act as supplements to the already existing hair roots and this makes the hair grow faster. It is readily available in the form of shampoos, conditioners and lotions. It is known to promote hair growth in those areas where hair already exists.
- Diphenylcyclopropenone (DPCP)
This medicine is known to be very effective and has to be painted on the scalp. It is available in liquid form and has to be applied once a week to strengthen the hair roots and is not readily available.
The said drugs/medicines do not give you a total guarantee that your hair will grow again. Today, further research is still being done by many scientists. There has also been recent studies that pertain to side effects caused by popular medications used to treat hair loss.
In a review of the existing drug studies on the drugs Dutasteride (brand name Avodart) and Finasteride (brand names Proscar and Propecia), the medications have been linked to a decrease in sexual desire (libido) and in cases, even erectile dysfunction. The concern increases as a small percentage of these cases showed persisting symptoms even after the drugs were no longer taken. Since these drugs work by blocking androgen (the specifically male hormone) in the body, the side effects seem inevitable: Men need androgen for erectile function, libido, ejaculation, and just for a sense of well-being.
Indeed, hair restoration surgery is the ONLY real and permanent solution to hair loss. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a special hair transplant technique wherein great skill is employed to hair follicles which are individually harvested and transplanted to the balding site. In ensuring high survivability of the extracted grafts, experience plays a pivotal role in FUE. Dr. Romeo V. Bato is the only hair transplant surgeon in the Philippines which has this level of experience and ability to handle mega sessions (3000 grafts or more).
