Should I take head bath daily if using minoxidil. If so, which shampoo is good?

Should I take head bath daily if using minoxidil. If so, which shampoo is good?

Probably not: Unless your hair becomes dirty or you've been perspiring a lot. Most specialists recommend shampooing hair 2-3 times per week instead of daily if possible if you are losing hair excessively. Over shampooing can dry the scalp. Nizoral (ketoconazole) shampoo has helped some with hair loss also. Biotin supplements too. If your hair loss is patchy, you should see your Dr to rule out other causes. ...Read more

My hair is greasy and I mean very greasy! If I don't have a bath after a day it's looks like I have never washedmy hair plus it sort of stinks why help?

Greasy Hair: Greasy hair happens when the sebaceous glands on the scalp become overactive. This means that the glands produce too much oil.
In a normal environment, the sebaceous glands are designed to produce and secret sebum, which is an oil based matter, which naturally lubricates the hair and skin.
You should use a detergent shampoo to lesson the oil. ...Read more

My hair looks very thin after a bath, but looks very thick if I don't wash my hair for few days. Why so?

Try conditioner: Washing hair removes the oils from it and can make it look thinner. I would suggest trying a conditioner after washing your hair to help it look thicker after washing. You may even be able to find a conditioner that says something like "full body" or " for thin hair". ...Read more

Sir, water is hard and soft, so how water should be for hair bath. In home we have wellwaterplease give me your valuable opinion as soon as possible.

Why does my 1 month old hair smell even after he takes a bath?

Baby hair: Does your baby have a scaly yellow rash in scalp or eye brows? If so this is seborrhea and a likely cause of the smell. I would suggest someone examine the baby to determine whether this is seborrhea or not. Seborrhea is also know as cradle cap and is very common in the first months of life. It is also easily treated. ...Read more

I applied olive oil to my hair before taking a bath. Will this make my hair grow long and can u suggest other things to make it grow more faster?

Olive oil healthy: I don't think olive oil will make your hair grow longer, but it may keep the hair from splitting and breaking, so in effect can help it grow longer. Best things for hair growth -- balanced diet, adequate protein intake, getting enough B vits and Vit D.
Gentle hair care to avoid damage and breakage. ...Read more

I could easily pluck my hairs on my chest & my facial hairs too fall when I rub my skin. I also see lot of hairs falling during my bath. I'm balding too?

Hair loss: You answered that you have allopecia? If this is the case this is an autoimmune dz where your body sees the hair follicles as foreign and attacks them which makes the hair fall out. If generalized this is difficult to treat. If concerned about scalp direct steroid injections can help small areas if not more generalized immune suppressing agents can be use. See rhuematoligist for treatment options ...Read more
