Overview

Adhair 2% Solution

Manufacturer: Unichem Laboratories Ltd
Medicine composition: Aminexil, Minoxidil
Prescription vs.OTC: Prescription by Doctor not required

Adhair 2% Solution is used in the treatment of hair loss, effectively promoting hair growth for those having the condition of alopecia. It increases the circulation of blood to hair follicles which triggers an increase in hair growth and also prevents the hardening of hair shaft and the buildup of collagen around it. It can be used by both men and women dealing with hereditary hair loss or androgenic alopecia.

Surprising as it may seem, but Adhair 2% Solution has no reported side effects. However, it is not advisable to use hair cream products during the treatment period. It has also been found that Adhair 2% Solution may provide best results for those at the early stages of hair loss, while those at the later stages may see absolutely no results.

This medicine is often used with minoxidil but in some cases it can be used separately. Ideally only two treatments in a year are adequate, with each treatment taking place over a period of 6 weeks. Adhair 2% Solution is available in vials of 6ml that is to be applied once every day, on dry hair, for six consecutive weeks.

In addition to its intended effect, Adhair 2% Solution may cause some unwanted effects too. In such cases, you must seek medical attention immediately. This is not an exhaustive list of side effects. Please inform your doctor if you experience any adverse reaction to the medication.

What is the Most Effective Hair Regrowth Treatment?

Hair thinning and loss of hair is very common in today's lifestyle. Excessive stress, anxiety, lack of sleep, a poor diet can be listed as the major environmental culprits but genetics too plays an important role in premature hair loss. There are plenty of hair growth products that promise results but very few work. Here are some effective hair re-growth treatments that have been proven to be successful.

  • Finasteride (Propecia)- Finasteride is an umbrella term for the Propecia and Proscar. If you are affected by DHT (dihydrotestosterone), it will cause your hair follicles to become smaller until they have shrunk to the point they can't grow any hair. Finasteride reduces the effects of DHT up to 70% and even causes hair to grow back. It can take from 3 months up to a year for it to show any results. This has been often referred as the best hair loss treatment available with little to no side effects.
  • Minoxidil- Minoxidil was originally a remedy to treat high blood pressure, but several users reported its hair growth effects, it was then manufactured as a topical medication for hair loss. Minoxidil works by stimulating the hair follicles by enlarging the blood vessels which causes more nutrients and oxygen to flow into the follicle leading to hair growth. Users can notice significant growth from 2 to 3 months of using Minoxidil.
  • Prostaglandin analogs- These are relatively new options which are currently being examined of their hair growth potentials. These are mainly used as eyelash enhancements now but scientists are hopeful that they soon can be treated for hair loss.

Managing Hereditary Related Baldness Or Androgenic Alopecia

Managing Hereditary Related Baldness Or Androgenic Alopecia

Hair loss is a common problem affecting a vast majority of the population. A receding hairline may not always be an outcome of pollution, unhealthy lifestyle or lack of proper hair care. Hair loss can also be a hereditary trait. Of late, hereditary related baldness (in males and females) is on an exponential rise. The problem is no longer related to old age. You will come across many young men and women (below 30) suffering from hereditary linked progressive baldness. The condition can, however, be postponed and managed if diagnosed and treated at an early stage.

On an average, a person loses between 50-100 (150 in some cases) hair strands per day. As part of a normal growth cycle of the hair, new strands of hair replaces the hair that you lose. In hereditary related baldness, also known as Androgenic Alopecia, the hair loss is at an alarming rate with little or no hair growth. The problem may be a male pattern baldness or a female pattern baldness (Androgenic Alopecia in males and females respectively).

In female pattern baldness, the hair in the front mostly remains unaffected. It is the hair on the crown of the head that starts thinning progressively.
In male pattern baldness, the hair thinning starts at the hairline. Soon, bald patches appear on the crown of the head.

Unlike in males, these bald spots seldom appear in females.

Managing Androgenic Alopecia
In Androgenic Alopecia, the male hormone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is present in elevated amounts. DHT often interferes with the growth cycle of the hair, thereby shortening it. The follicles of the hair also grow shorter than usual. As a result, the hair may become short and thin, losing its natural shine and color.

Treatments and medications are available to treat androgenic alopecia.

  1. Propecia (Finasteride) is used to treat androgenic alopecia in men. The prescription drug inhibits the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. In the absence of the hormone Dihydrotestosterone, the hair growth follows the normal cycle, thereby arresting the hair fall and other associated symptoms considerably.
  2. The Minoxidil Topical Lotion comes in handy in case of hair loss from the scalp (mainly back and top of the scalp). Effective for both men and women, the lotion should, however, be avoided by pregnant and lactating women. Minoxidil lotion arrests the progressive balding, thereby preventing further deterioration. However, there may not be a 100% hair growth. Minoxidil in tablet form is often used to treat high HP. Thus, the medication should never be used without consulting the doctor. Make sure that your scalp is dry before applying the lotion (usually twice a day). One should be patient with Finasteride and Minoxidil lotion as the medications may take time (up to 4 months) to produce the desired results.
  3. One can also opt for Hair Transplantation to camouflage the bald patches and hair thinning. However, get the procedure done only by an expert surgeon.
  4. In addition to these medications, take care of your diet. Replenish the diet with foods rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals (eggs, walnuts, almonds, salmon, spinach, avocado, blueberry, guava, apple, orange, papaya, oats, to name a few.)

Modern Day Hair Loss Treatments

Everyone loves healthy shiny hair. But in today's world many people are suffering from hair loss. Hair loss could be because of number of reasons such as aging, too much stress, smoking, hormonal imbalance, infections, use of wrong hair products, genetic factors and nutritional imbalances.

Our scalp consists of about 100,000 strands of hair and it is normal to lose 50 to 100 strands a day. It is only when you start losing more than that some medical intervention is required.

PREVENTION OF HAIR LOSS

First of all, it is very important to detect the root cause of your hair loss at an early stage. Once it is detected, it becomes easy to treat it. Following home remedies can be tried to prevent it at first stage:

  1. Avoid excessive or chronic stress or at least learn to release your stress.
  2. Avoid "crash diets" for rapid weight loss.
  3. Quit excessive smoking.
  4. In case of any hormonal imbalance see your doctor immediately who will then advise you to undergo proper treatment.
  5. Observe if any medicine you are taking is leading to hair fall. Call upon your doctor to replace it with some other medicine.
  6. Eat a healthy diet with enough proteins, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, vitamin, and minerals to support healthy hair growth.
  7. Make sure you receive enough iron to avoid symptoms causing anaemia. Avoid overdose of vitamin A.

HAIR FALL TREATMENT

There are a couple of treatments available for hair loss which includes medications, surgery, laser therapy, and wigs or hairpieces.

Medication-

There are only two medications available to treat pattern baldness which are FDA approved. These medicines are:

  1. Minoxidil (Rogaine). Minoxidil is an over-the-counter liquid or foam that you need to apply onto your scalp. This is to be applied twice a day to grow hair and to prevent further hair loss. It takes at least 16 weeks to show the effects. However you can have scalp irritation and unwanted hair growth your face and hands while taking this medicine.
  2. Finasteride (Propecia). This medicine is prescribed if you don't respond to minoxidil. This medicine is to be taken daily in the form of a pill. You need to keep taking it to retain benefits. However, there are some side effects of taking this medication which include diminished sex drive and sexual function and an increased risk of prostate cancer.

Surgery-

In case you don't respond to any of the above mentioned medicines your dermatologist might advise you to undergo hair transplant or restoration surgery. During this procedure, the surgeon removes a part of your skin and then implants it on your scalp. Such procedures are generally expensive. There is also a risk of infection and scarring.

Wigs and Hairpieces-

You can also use a wig to hide your baldness if you do not want to undergo any surgery or are irresponsive to above medications. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.
