Stress is considered one of the rare causes of hair loss. Practicing yoga or mediation everyday or thrice a week, would restore hormonal balance and boost hair growth.

Hair transplant has gained a lot of press in the last few years. Men seem to be looking at it as a convenient and easy option to replace their hair loss. There is nothing to feel ashamed about wanting your lost hair back. Celebrities (like Mel Gibson, John Travolta, David Beckham and so on) too get hair transplants done, and are not ashamed, going public about the same. Although it is not bad to give hair transplant a thought, but you may do so only after trying hair growth regimes for a solid 2 years without the desired results.
In a hair transplant surgery, hair is taken from the back of your head, where the hair tends to grow continuously and planted on the front side on scalp, where there is no hair. This process can actually restore your hair and disguise baldness, provided you are getting it done from a renowned doctor or institution, as quality matters here. Hair transplant is costly no doubt, but it is worth all the money if you want to do away with your baldness and look desirable again.
