I am 25 yrs male and suffering from hair loss at a very young age kindly advice me how I could recover my hair?

(August 5, 2011)

Hair loss at a young age could mean either a deficiency of zinc which has lead to exceptional hair loss or hair loss due to crash or fad diets. Either way, improving your diet and eating a well-balanced diet can help protect hair loss, making the strands and the cuticles stronger, and preventing further hair loss. If it is a medical condition especially related to the scalp, it can be remedied with home remedies or medicated shampoos and ointments if it is serious. In such cases, hair grows back once the scalp’s original health is restored. Keeping away from stress, exercising and stocking up on multi-vitamins can also help hair grow back richer and healthier.

Some hair loss can also be the result of a hereditary condition and usually in such cases hair cannot be re-grown. There are some professional treatments for hair growth but they have had a mixed result.
