Fashion & Grooming




Men don’t necessarily have to love everything served to them on a shiny platter, especially a shiny platter that is your balding head. Thinning hair which may/will lead to a chrome dome is frightening for men all over. It’s not because you wear your helmet too much, not because you had a ponytail in your heydays, there is no one and nothing to blame here. Simply put, you’re losing hair because you are genetically predisposed to, and well maybe because of your hormones.

Men would go the deepest of hells to stop going bald, because it is an influential factor in not only how others perceive you professionally and personally, but also how you view yourself. All is not lost, here are some ways in which you can prevent, regrow or at least slow down the hair loss process:

Strategized Haircuts

Not everyone is blessed with a timeless thick patch of hair, so we have to make use of what we have. Working around what you have may be the best idea at times. Short dome hugging hair cuts or buzz cuts might just do the trick, think Jason Statham. Else, you could go the whole hog and shave it right off. Honesty is the best policy!

Specialized Shampoos

Hair loss treatment shampoos are a debated remedy to hair loss as it has varying results. Available readily at supermarkets, hair loss treatment shampoos work for some but for others it’s just another shampoo. And with so many brands to choose from, there is no saying which one works the best, may swear by Ramdev’s shampoo for the reason of their lovely locks.

Home Remedies

There are several home remedies that promise a revived set of hair. They range from the use of coconut milk, amla oil, mustard oil, lettuce and onions. We do hope these remedies do work, or you’ll just end us seasoning yourself for a cannibal supper.

However, one home remedy that seems to fare better than others is the act of vigorously rubbing your scalp till it tingles after a cold wash. It will activate the sebaceous glands and energize the circulation of blood in the affected area, making the hair grow healthy.

Pharmaceutical Options

There are drugs that go beyond just stopping hair loss but also trying to regrow them. However, these are serious alternatives which should be consulted once over with a certified doctor before use. Some of these options are expensive and once you stop using them, you’re back to square one. Not to mention some probability of side effects and a long time to reap the rewards.

Surgical Options

If everything else has been tried and tested to fail, surgery might be the last option. And it is the last option for a reason. Before you decide to get anything done, consider the costs, expected outcomes and risks associated with the procedures.

Hair Transplants are the most popular surgical alternative. Transplants operate by grafting tiny follicular units from hair-growing sections of the scalp to problem areas, so the tiny grafts will be visible until the transplant is finished. So during the several visits for the transplant, you will be looking like you have doll hair on your head. To our knowledge, this is the only surgical option to hair loss in Nepal.

A more radical option, flap procedures are conducted in three phases and consist of surgically moving a flap of hair-growing scalp to a bald area (cringe). But once completed, you have naturally growing hair where there was none before.

Another option is the scalp reduction, and sadly it is what it sounds like. In scalp reductions, bald areas of your scalp are surgically removed, and hair-baring tissue is stretched over these areas to offset the difference.

There are remedies to hair loss and balding so there is no reason to lose your head. But, like we always say “Prevention is better than cure.” If nothing works, you can always let nature run its course and be comfortable in your own skin.

You’re losing hair because you are genetically predisposed to, and well maybe because of your hormones.
