Significant Hair Regeneration in Androgenetic Alopecia observed with Unani Treatment

Mohd Rizwan

Abstract: Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) is the most common type of hair loss that affects an equal number of men and women and is clinically characterized by progressive baldness. In India, the prevalence of AGA in men aged 30-50 is 58%. AGA is not only limited to cosmetic problems but also leads to several psychological issues like low self-esteem, embarrassment, frustration, and jealousy. The present case study illustrates a possible option to treat AGA with Unani formulations along with a novel therapeutic procedure based on the fundamentals described in the classical literature of Unani medicine. Significant regeneration of new hair was observed compared to baseline in three patients of AGA aged between 26-30. The outcome of this concise study suggests that local Unani formulations along with Hair Rejuvenation Therapy (HRT) can provide noteworthy relief in AGA and will provide a stimulus to carry out larger randomized trials to further validate the results.
