My son age is 27 years and he is working as software engineer at bangalore. He is pure vegetarian. He is suffering with heavy hair fall and becoming bald. So now he want to go for hair weaving. Kindly suggest us whether it is advisable or not? What will be the side effects? Thank you, with regards, srinivas.

Hi lybrate-user If it's Hair weaving then Hair transplantation is better option. Or prp.
There is nothing called hair weaving. You are suffering from androgenic alopecia which is also called as pattern baldness. The hairs start reducing in density at the crown (top) and also the hairline starts receeding from the front. This is usually progressive throughout life unless treated. It is usually accompanied by severe dandruff which we call seborrhoea. The FDA approved treatment for this condition is the best. No oil or cream will magically work because the hairs are getting miniaturised and eventually disappearing due to the hormonal effects of DHT on the hair roots. Please call me or contact me with photos using online consult option for proper examination and treatment. Do not start treatment without consulting. I can give guidance and then you can continue treatment on your own.
