In Allopathic Treatment drugs such as minoxidil (Rogaine) and finasteride (Propecia, Proscar) promote hair growth in a significant minority of patients, especially those with male pattern baldness and alopecia areata. When used continuously for long periods of time, minoxidil produces satisfactory results in about one-quarter of patients with androgenic alopecia and as many as half the patients with alopecia areata. Both drugs are quite safe when used for this purpose.
Surgical Treatment of Alopecia
Hair transplant surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure done generally on the scalp. It removes hair follicles from one part of your head and plants them in the bald area. This is done by cutting the donor scalp tissue into tiny pieces and placing each in a very small incision (cut) in the bald area. This is generally done only if your condition is severe and when medicines fail to improve your hair loss.

Inverted postures like Sarvangasana, Shirsasana, and Padhangushtasana can increase the blood flow to the scalp and keep hair vital.
What is Alopecia
Alopecia is an autoimmune condition resulting in hair loss. The immune system of the body mistakenly stops hair growth for unidentified reasons. Hair loss may be patchy or sparse and may involve the rest of the body in addition to the scalp. Alopecia (hair loss) is a condition that affects many men and some women. In cases of male pattern hair loss or female pattern hair loss, it is a natural process. However, in some cases a disorder or illness such as alopecia areata or telogen effluvium may be responsible. Patients may undergo hair restoration procedures to cosmetically repair damage caused by hair loss.

- Exposed skin may be red or scaly.
- Nails may be pitted or split, or have grooves running across them. Excessively tight hair accessories

- Genetic factors are also the risk factors of alopecia.

Diagnosis of Alopecia
The diagnostic goal is to discover the underlying cause of any illness. A biopsy may be necessary to rule out an infection or tumour. Looking at plucked hairs under a microscope can help to tell the difference between alopecia areata and androgenic alopecia. Other tests might be done to check for autoimmune diseases like lupus that can accompany alopecia. When examining children for alopecia areata, doctors may want to make sure the hair loss isn’t due to a neurotic habit called trichotillomania (hair pulling).
Precautions & Prevention of Alopecia
While there’s no way to prevent most types of hair loss, it’s sometimes possible to stop or slow the alopecia. A wig, hat, or other covering may be desired until the hair grows back. Hair weaves, hairpieces, or changes of hairstyle may disguise hair loss. This is generally the least expensive and safest approach to hair loss. Hairpieces should not be sutured to the scalp because of the risk of scars and infection.
