Hair 4U 10% 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 Hair 4U 10% 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 Hair 4U 10% 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. Hair 4U 10% Solution is available in vials of 6ml that is to be applied once every day, on dry hair, for six consecutive weeks.

How to Take Care of Your Hair?

Long Hair:-

Long hair is an all time cherished dream of girls and women. I have been seeing patients of hair loss and they would always recall their good days when they used to have good lengthy hair. They would invariably lament about the loss of long hair they were having in teenage and before marriage. This is the type of concern women have for their hair. Having lusty, shining, long hair is a sign of beauty and feminine grace. Some precautions have to be taken for all types of hair, which are briefed in following heading but long hair need utmost care so that they are not lost easily.

  • No brushing should be done immediately after washing.
  • Winding the hair, encasing them in rubber bands and then fixing clips or hooks should be done lightly and never too tightly.
  • Winding the hair into tight plaits and then wearing chignon (coil of hair worn at the back of head) pulls the hair form scalp. I have seen many patients, especially girls, having this habit that ultimately ends in bald spots in head.
  • Similar is the case with the girls who bind their back hairs in ponytails or buns. One should not confine to one style and go on changing the style so that the hair do not experience a direct pull in this fashion everyday and get pulled.
  • Regarding types of curlers, rollers, combs, brushes, etc., these topics are discussed here below under different types of hair. Those rules are applicable for long hair,

Oily Hair:-

  • If you do not apply little amount of oil over the hair regularly, you will loose the hair and their shine.
  • The best is to adopt the homeopathic method, ‘like cures like’ Apply little oil to the greasy scalp. Since the scalp itself is producing more of oil, the presence of oil on the scalp would stop production of oil from within. The imbalance will thus be overruled.
  • If you are washing the hair twice in a week (women), make it thrice a week. Apply some oil, massage it into scalp and leave it for at least one hour on your scalp before washing it with shampoo. Men should do it five times a week.
  • If you are using harsh, highly scented and strong hair-care products like soaps, shampoos and oils, leave them.
  • Improve your diet to make it nutritional.
  • Take half a bottle of distilled water and add some lemon juice in it. Now rinse your hair with this mixture to remove oiliness of hair.
  • It is always in your own interest that you should consult a beauty parlor when you do not find relief after testing the mentioned methods. No relief means that you need help of a conditioner to remove/rectify oiliness.


Dry Hair:-

  • Use of heat-styling appliances; dryers for drying the hair after washing and over-exposure to the sun should   be avoided.
  • Take nutritional food.
  • Do not adopt rigorous cleaning methods or routine. Use a good hair oil to massage the hair. If the dryness is more, the hair become brittle. Do not massage the    scalp vigorously.
  • Steaming the hair once a fortnight also helps in dry hairs. Massaging and steaming as a follow-up gives good result.
  • Do not wash the hair frequently with shampoo.
  • Do not comb or brush strongly.


WAVY HAIR (Hairs Having Waves):-

  • Wavy hairs are not curly but have waves as you find in the sea or sand dunes.
  •   Those who have wavy hair, they should wash their hair with a shampoo that has shine enhancing gradients.
    •   After washing, dry the hair in natural ways and separate the hair with comb that has wide-teeth so that there is no entanglement and    pulling while combing the hair.
  • Wavy hair needs good conditioners and more care than straight hair.


Straight Hair:-

  • Straight hair lies flat on the scalp.
  • Since such hair lie flat, they gather more dust. Naturally these straight hair are mostly dense and  hence they need deep cleaning shampoo.
  • Such hair needs at least three washing a week.
  • They are more prone to develop dandruff.
  • Oiling and massaging the scalp is essential and it should be one night before washing schedule.


Curly Hair:-

  • Curly hair get dry very soon. 
  • For washing curly hair, a shampoo with good moisture-gradient is necessary.
  • To bring a shine to curly hair, dry them with towel and expose to sun or natural air. In curly hairs, fingers reach easily up to the scalp. Use your fingers to disentangle them and then use wide toothed comb or brush to keep them at place.

Use Homoeopathy for any type of hair problem.

Remember always -

Excessive hair fall can be the result of certain illnesses, hormonal changes, over-use of hair products that contain chemicals or a poor diet.

What you may not have considered is that you can also lose a lot of hair by combing it the wrong way.

Never detangle your hair after shampooing.

Hair is known to be at its weakest when wet, which can also make it prone to tangling. Combing and excessive pulling of tangled, wet hair increases your chances of hair breakage and eventual hair loss.

What is Hair Loss?
Hair loss, also known as Alopecia or baldness, is a loss of hair from the head or body. Hair loss happens when frequent falling of hair results in thinning of the hair in the scalp. Losing hair fast may not only be a disease but it’s also due to heredity, aging or changes in the hormones.

Causes of Hair Loss:
 Hairstyles: Hair treatments with hot oils or irons, and perming, coloring, bleaching, or straightening, will weaken your hair and cause it to break off.
 Scalp infection: Infections, such as ringworm, can invade the hair and skin of your scalp, leading to scaly patches and hair loss. Once infections are treated, hair generally grows back.
 Poor diet: Hair loss may also be due to poor diet that misses out on vital ingredients like proteins, iron, vitamins and minerals and other micro nutrients.
 Stress: Stress is a body reaction that challenges and sometimes disturbs the individual’s health. Too much of stress to the body causes the hair to fall and stop growing, which will later result in hair loss.
 Side Effect of Drug: Most people know that severe hair fall is a side effect of chemotherapy drugs for cancer. But what most people do not know is that medicines for depression, bipolar disorder, and acne can also cause hair loss.
 Water: We must be aware of the regular water supply in our household. It might contain chemical compounds like magnesium, copper and minerals that can harm your hair and cause hair loss.
Home Remedies for Hair Growth
Hair fall is very common nowadays. Want to know how to beat hair loss? Here are some for hair growth you can follow:
 Spinach: Spinach is a great source of iron, vitamin A and C and protein. Iron deficiency is the main cause of hair fall and spinach is not only iron-rich, it also contains sebum which acts as a natural conditioner for hair. It also provides us with omega-3 acid, magnesium, potassium, calcium and iron. These help in maintaining a healthy scalp and lustrous hair.
 Eggs and Dairy Products: Milk, yogurt, cheese, eggs etc. are loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, Vitamin B12, iron, zinc and Omega 6 fatty acids. Dairy products are also a great source of biotin (Vitamin B7) that is known to fight hair loss.
 Onion Juice: Onion juice is one of the best and oldest remedies to stimulate a good hair growth. The sulphur present in it does not only enhance the growth of strands, but also helps in their re-growth. Squeeze some juice out of the red onions or shallots, and apply it to your hair for about fifteen minutes. Finally, rinse off with a mild shampoo after 1-2 hours.
 Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV): Apple cider vinegar cleanses the scalp and maintains the pH balance of your hair. Therefore, apply ACV after shampooing your hair. Clean scalp naturally accelerates the hair growth.
 Flax Seed: Those, who are not non-vegetarians, flax seeds are an option for them to intake omega-3 fatty acids. Flax seeds are rich in these fatty acids, therefore, are also good for hair. Soak three tablespoons of flax seeds in a bowl of water for five days. After five days, when the water has absorbed almost all the essential nutrients of flax seeds, apply the solution on your scalp with the help of a cotton ball. You will see that within a few days, your hair have started to grow thick. Eating ground flax seeds is also good for hair, skin and health.
 Coconut Milk: Coconut milk reduces hair shedding and breakage. If you want healthy and damage-free strands, use coconut milk as a natural hair conditioner. Massage your scalp with it and keep it for a night. Wash it off the next morning with cold water.
 Amla: Amla (Indian gooseberry) is considered an enriching source for hair growth. Take some pieces of dried Amla and boil them in coconut oil, boil till the oil turns black in color. Cool it and store it in a bottle. Before washing your hair, massage your scalp with this oil and leave it for 30-40 minutes. Wash it off thoroughly with warm water and a mild shampoo. Use this method frequently to prevent hair loss.
 Green Tea: Green tea is the natural source of anti-oxidants, which checks hair fall. Apply warm green tea all over your scalp and rinse off with cold water the next morning.
 Vitamin E Oil: Massage your hair with Vitamin E oil. You can also crush Vitamin E capsules that are available in the market and apply it on the scalp. This helps in enhancing the blood flow and lengthening of hair. Take this treatment thrice a week.
 Aloe Vera: Aloe vera gel, brandy, and egg together can do wonder for your hair. Mix these three and leave them for an hour on your scalp. Wash them with normal water. This remedy will make your hair beautiful, and brandy will add sheen to them.
 Henna: It is a natural hair colorant and hair conditioner. Make a mixture of henna powder, one egg and a cup of curd. Mix all these ingredients well, leave it for a night and apply the henna paste on the hair the next day. Leave it on for an hour and wash with warm water.
 Lemon: Apply the juice in the hair and add few drops of lukewarm olive oil or coconut oil. Massage the hair oil in the scalp, leave it for about half an hour and wash the hair well with a mild shampoo.
Tips to Grow Hair Fast
 Prevent your hair from too much of sun lights. Although, a fair quantity of sunlight is necessary.
 Do not take excessive stress as it may lead to hair loss and slow growth of hair.
 Use conditioner every time you shampoo.
 Circumvent the usage of strong and hard medicines unless prescribed by a physician. Medicines may possibly cause hair fall.
 Avoid using hot water on hair.
