Keraglo and Minoxidil
Hello, I am currently suffering from the initial phase of hair loss, where my crown has become more visible. I was also suffering from severe dandruff and scalp etching. For this I used keraglo ad shampoo and for my better luck it worked like charm. But it left my hair dry for atleast 3-4 days. I recently visited a dermatologist at DHI. He advised me to take keraglo. I visited another dermatologist who suggested me that I should take topical minoxidil and Finasteride combination. Now whatever understanding that I have gained by googling and reading online that the combination of minoxidil and Finasteride works and effects are highly visible in a few weeks and the effects stop as soon as a person stops taking them. Also these are not supplements in case you have some kind of deficiency. Now I want to know whether I can continue keraglo or becosules with the above combination? Will there be side effects if I use keraglo men with them? Also is keraglo Ad shampoo harmful in long run?

Thanks for the query. Male pattern baldness (MPB) is an increasing problem in today's society. Hair care is a daily ritual shaped by age, gender, socioeconomic status and internal health. With increasing affordability people are more aware of the cosmetic appearance and hair fall forms a major part of the complaints. It is more difficult to manage if there is a family member with similar hair fall, it indicates genetics and we know that the person is destined to lose hair if not intervened and corrective measures are not taken. The treatment typically consists of usage of oral medication (Finasteride) and topical lotion (Minoxidil in 5% strength). One needs to be patient with the treatment protocol as it takes months to see initial improvement. Minoxidil is recommended by US-FDA for indefinite usage. Certain dermatologists supplement biotin, hair serum and advice procedures like PRP therapy which may accelerate the rate of hair growth. PRP needs multiple sessions (4-6) roughly at 6 weeks intervals. PRP therapy is increasingly being accepted by dermatologists all over the world. Apart from active pharmaceutical medicines, a healthy diet and lifestyle is mandatory to achieve results.
