i'm losing my hair fast and furiously. I have had itchy scalp for a while and had ignore it. Now i think it is related to my hair loss.

Am in my mid 50s and had a partial hysterectomy in 1995. I don't know if it is related. I think that by the end of this year I will be completely bald.

Can anyone suggest a medication or share similar condition?

  • Here are few of the tips that i can share to you:*Lettuce is useful in preventing hair loss. A mixture of lettuce and spinach juice is believed to help the growth of hair if taken to the extent to half a litre a day* Onion has also been found beneficial in patchy baldness. The affected part should be rubbed with onions morning and evening till it is red. It should be rubbed with honey afterwards.* Mustard oil, boiled with henna leaves, is useful for healthy growth of hair. About 250 ml of mustard oil should be boiled in a tin basin. About sixty grams of henna leaves should be gradually put in this oil till they are burnt in the oil. The oil should then be filtered using a cloth and stored. Regular massage of the head with the oil will produce abundant hair. and as for itchiness:A vinegar mixture of equal parts water and vinegar is said to work well. Rinse hair in clear water and apply mixture directly to scalp with cotton balls or pads. Rinse with clear water. If desired, shampoo with a mild shampoo. hope these stuff helps you....:D
