I’m losing so many strands of my hair lately. The strands falling on the floor and those left on the pillow can no longer be ignored. Although they say we normally loose 100 strands of hair a day, I think I’m losing more because I’m already noticing the falling hair.
My sister was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata more than a month ago. This is a condition wherein bald patches are found on the scalp. She has about two bald patches the size of our ten centavo coin. She cried a river then, but her doctor and my sister-doctor assured her it was reversible with medical treatment. It did and now new hair has slowly grown on those bald patches. Her treatment regimen is a bi-weekly dose of some medicine injected directly to the patches. Aside from this, she applies Minoxidil Regrow twice a day and take oral medication to promote hair growth.
Some years ago, I also had excessive hair loss and when I went to a Dermatologist, she prescribed Minoxidil for me too. She likewise told me that since there was baldness in my father’s family, I should keep on applying Minoxidil f o r e v e r. I followed her order for a while and when the falling hair stopped, so did I.
Now I’m back to square one and this time, I’m diligently following my medication: Apply Minoxidil Regrow twice a day and take Matrix 5000 Hair Nail and Skin tablet once a day. The Minoxidil will stimulate my “hair matrix to continuously divide and multiply, dilate and increase the size of smaller blood vessels around follicles for improved blood flow and better nutrition and oxygenation and act as anti-androgen to inhibit the synthesis of dihydrotestosterone (the active form of androgen which is responsible for the clinical appearance of baldness)”. The tablet, which is a complete essential dietary supplement of Biotin 5000 mcg, Silica, Lutein, Vitamin A, C, E and Zinc, will boost hair luster and hair growth. It also promotes healthier skin and healthier and stronger nails.
There’s a new addition to my dresser now:
