How to Make a Bald Patch Grow Hair

Updated March 23, 2017

If you are one of many men and women facing baldness, you have several options. If you're a man, you might want to embrace the baldness and shave you head or, if you aren't quite ready for that Mr. Clean look, hide the bald patch. While the infamous comb-over is always an option, the better way to battle baldness is to eliminate it by growing your own natural hair. There is no need for expensive hair transplant surgery; look no further than your local grocery store or pharmacy. While it may be difficult to regrow hair, you can be on your way to a full head of hair sooner than you think with the right regimen and common products.

Take vitamin E supplements daily to stimulate hair growth. Vitamin E contains valuable antioxidants that increase blood flow and circulation to all parts of the body. The increased circulation to the scalp has the same effect as a massage, stimulating the growth and regrowth of hair follicles.

Combine equal parts of castor oil and almond oil in a small, plastic bottle. Use as much or as little oil as you will need. Any unused portions can be stored in an air tight container. Shake well to combine the oils.

Massage the oil mixture over the bald spot daily to stimulate and awaken dead hair follicles. The oil will also add sheen and lustre to existing hair as an added bonus!

Apply Rogaine directly to the bald patch twice daily. For best results apply the solution once in the morning and then again in the evening. If skin irritation occurs discontinue use immediately and consult with your physician. Rogaine can be purchased over the counter in most pharmacies.


If you do not begin to see results within one month, you may wish to contact your physician to see if a prescription treatment, such as Propecia, might be right for you.
