Are you suggesting shampooing hair all 7 days a week?

Yes for the first 15 days atleast (I am not a hair expert - 4-5 people known to me got rid of dandruf using these shampoos)
Later using it occasionally

I am using 'Selenium Sulfide' (eg. Selsun Blue) based shampoos for my dandruff problem, as the 'Pyrithione Zinc'(eg. Head n Shoulder') based shampoos made no effect on my dandruff. I wash my hair every alternate day with selsun blue, and as such am now free of itching and dandruff.

Just curious about the difference between Selsun Green and Blue. I was using the Green bottle (orange shampoo) for few months without much of a visible difference. My issue was a 2 rupee coin size patch/scaling/dandruff. Now the scaling is reduced but the red patch is remaining.

And here is the video on the product I use. Pay attention to the last sentence of the video. Not only for blacks, it works for browns too. It did for me.

I am doing that since 2011, but the red patch on the shaved area is so prominent, I need to get rid of that. The red patch started as a 2 rupee coin size and now the shape of SriLanka or South America, not sure

I used to use selsun to get rid of dandruff, but off late I started using 'Neelibhringadi keram' from Pam Labs. I found it better than one of the famous ayurveda company's product.

I apply it on hair and leave for 15 minutes and take bath after that.Normally use it once a week. When I had lot of dandruff, I used it every alternate days for 3 days and the result was amazing.

Ok - I had some amount of flaking and a lot of hairloss for around 2 years now. I didn't have any red patches etc but flaking and itchiness only. Atleast I couldn't see any red patch. 1 year of 2% ketacanazole which is supposed to be the #1 remedy didn't help.

Now I bought both these shampoos - Candid TV and Himalaya. I used the Himalaya one for 2 days in a row and the visible flaking and dandruff seems to have disappeared. Will also try the Candid TV over the weekend.

Another question guys - if the hairfall is because of dandruff and dandruff is stopped, will hairfall reverse? i.e. Will the hair grow back or will it just stop further hairloss?

Been nearly a month now - I have been using Himalaya 5-6 times a week and
Candid 1-2 times. It's OK on days I use them, but the day I don't shampoo my hair, it feels itchy. This doesn't seem like a long term solution.

Am not sure whether my post will be of any help, but lemon juice on scalp reduces itching for a week.

I had a lot of flaking and I was asked to use Scalpe shampoo . Reduces flaking for a few days atleast . Gives relief from all the itching for atleast 3-4 days .

As a hom remedy , try rubbing white vinegar into your scalpe using a cotton ball and leave it on for 10-15 minutes . It helps, get rid of flakes and stops itching . The downside being , it stinks a lot . Almost smells like ammonia on your head . Maybe use a good fragrant shampoo afterwards .

er.. I stopped the pill popping soon after that post, and decided to leave it to nutrition. So my experiment had too short a trial period. Why dont you try and report back?

I am relying on diet (nuts almonds, pistachios + a bit of red meat) and leaving it to fate now ... I mean I've by and large never been the type to look twice in the mirror and fret and worry about these things, so back to my old ways ...

Please ignore if this seems like an hair oil ad thats the only way i know how to put it. There is this oil by Patanjali Ayurved which I have been using to reduce my hairfall which started from the sides of the hair. Though I started using it recently, it definitely has reduced the number of hair strands that would come to my palm when I shampooed my hair. I can feel small strands growing back from the areas that had turned completely bald with no hair. Think it is working for me. However I have a few queries for the experienced or expert members.

1. Is shampooing daily a bad idea? I am currently using an ayurvedic product which is a lot more gentle than the ones I used before and I guage this by looking at the number of strands that fall when I shampoo.

2. What I am experiencing is hair loss from the sides which gives me a pattern as my dad. Is this unavoidable? Is it due to traits

3. How bad is wearing helmet for the hair? My typical usage is less than an hour and that too non continuous. Will this be a reason for hairfall?

Request members to pour in views.

What's your verdict after a month now? Is this worth pursuing?

Anyway, my balding patch is in the front as of now. If I had to go for some restoration (weaving, transplant whatever - don't know much about this) - what's the best? What are advantages, disadvantages? What would it cost? And how many sessions would it require?
