My son is 5-year old. He has a bald patch on head. This had happened previously and we had to do a lot of medication to get the hair back. Can u suggest a remedy and tell me the cause of this?

Premature baldness is not a rare phenomenon these days. A skewed lifestyle, coupled with pressure to perform academically at an early age, leads to a condition wherein even young students lose their hair earlier than they would have expected it to fall off their scalp. To deal with premature hair loss, one must map a well balanced diet that pays equal attention to all the necessary nutrients required to stem the hair loss. Such a diet, as expected, will be high on vegetables such as spinach, celery leaves, and cauliflower. This diet would also include a sizeable measure of nuts such as groundnut, etc. Also, to this diet, add the fact that you need to drink at least ten glasses of water everyday.

In addition to all of this, apply coconut oil to the affected area. Dab the oil gently and massage the affected scalp. Continue this treatment at least for a month or so. Coconut oil nourishes the scalp and is said to rejuvenate the hair follicles. This apart, you can also try green apples and the extract from green apples. Green apples contain a polyphenol compound that has been scientifically known to promote growth of hair. Apply the green apple extract as often as possible for a period of 6 months on the bald patch for optimum results.

Apart from that, you can also serve the patient food that contains omega 3 and omega 3 fatty acids. These acids have been proved to nourish the scalp and help in the treatment of hair problems. Soya bean oil contains considerable amounts of these acids. So does canola oil. You can mix these oils with coconut oil and apply the resulting mixture onto the scalp. In addition to this, you can also make it a point to include fish such as salmon, sardines, trout, or mackerel in your palate. These fish contain sizeable amounts of omega3 acids.
